A Practice

Writing Prompt:http://writingprompts.tumblr.com/image/165294898235
The most common thing I believe humans tend to overlook is what they already have given it be: the newest smartphone, the newest fridge, the most expensive car and the list goes on. At the same time, that makes us never satisfied with what we already have and causes us to develop intensive urges of wanting and annoyance when we don't get something we want. Yet, once we have something that we've been wanting for a long time, many--not everyone tend to take it for granted and see it as not as important anymore. 
We should all practice this art and take a few minutes out of each day and learn to be grateful for having what we have. Family, friends, coworkers, a job, a roof over our heads, a phone, enough clothes to last us through all four seasons, a car, a working body. What would do if you lost the one you love the most, your parents, your job- ? No one ever thought they could lose some of these things because i…

New Blog Is Up

New Blog:https://jaeokitacompilations.blogspot.com/

Hello, everyone!!!! I apologize for being so behind with the upkeep of my blog. I recently got a job promotion at work which means longer hours and more exhausted me, yay. Anyways, because of the long hours-- I haven't had time to maintain my blog, read, or work on my own novels anymore which is sad. I feel as if my purpose is home to work, work to home, home - work, work - home every single week. 
Nothing is more torturing than not being able to savor the thrill of reading a new book or working on my own writing. However, because of some people around me who still find time to do what they like to do after work. I have decided to do my best to pick this back up and keep flying forward. But I cannot find motivation to work on my story. 
So I decided to start up a new blog which would mainly be me writing little story snippets based off writing prompts to help me boost my creativity and hopefully allow me to overcome my writer'…

Game of Thrones: Sansa Stark...A Threat?

Image
Sansa, Arya, Bran, and Jon have all undergone amazing character developments in the show and the books. They all underwent the pain of losing their father, their mother, and elder brother. I don't believe I can say that any one of them suffered any less than the others or experienced less of life than the others. All of them have fought for survival, felt fear choke at their throats everyday, and pulled through with scars that will follow them for a life time. They'd all grown from innocent children when they were at Winterfell into adults who are weary and exhausted of the burdens they carry, their stories, their nightmares, and emotional torment. In Game of Thrones, there is no sweet and icky sweet love for these poor characters, there is only trying to outwit their enemies, the thirst for revenge and the thirst for survival against enemies living and dead. 
Today, the main person I wanted to talk about was Sansa. Ever since the beginning of this season, there have been man…

Game of Thrones: War Tactics ~ Cersei and Dany

"I never thought dragons would exist again. No one did. The people who follow you know that you made something impossible happen. Maybe that helps them believe that you can make other impossible things happen. Build a world that's different from the shit one that they've known. But if you use them to melt castles and burn cities. You're not different. You're just more of the same..."~Jon Snow to Dany 
 Last night's episode was insanely intense and emotional. Again, I must mention how much I love the moments between Jon and Dany. I feel bad for Tyrion in the moment of where Dany seems to become weary of his 'clever ideas' and confronted him about him not wanting his family hurt. Dany probably said that in a moment of anger and frustration which I hope Tyrion understands. 
War tactics are very important in Game of Thrones as we have all seen. I personally feel that the war concepts and strategies in the books are sim…

Game of Thrones: Thoughts on Jon and Dany's Meeting

Image
I think the best part of episode 3 of season 7 of Game of Thrones for me was probably the part where Jon and Dany finally meet after such a long wait. These two that are so similar in terms of events they experienced through their life journey...and finally meeting at Dragonstone covered in scars and wounds of life. 
It was a breath taker moment for me when Jon Snow stepped through those double doors and came into the presence of Dany. Both not aware of all that the other had went through until Tyrion spoke up and shared what Jon went through where Dany told her own experience. The expressions on both of these characters were priceless. They revealed a tiny ounce of what seemed like bewilderment for the other when they learn of the others past but refused to say or express any type of sympathy. Perhaps, this is because they're done feeling sorry for others and showing their true feelings and having it get trampled upon. These both are some the strongest and well developed charact…

Thoughts On Transgender Ban in Military

Image
This sudden piece of news  is causing a lot of controversy and heated arguments across the internet after President Trump tweeted this. There are a ton of people that agree with this ban and believe it should be put in effect immediately and there are also people that wish this will be dismissed. I don't understand why people must discriminate against those who are gay, lesbian, or transgender. We should respect others regardless of their religious beliefs, sex, backgrounds, and so forth. Weren't we taught to respect others in school? Is respecting each other so difficult? 
Is learning to respect someone who is different more difficult than passing a military entrance exam?
Anyone who can pass the military exam and courses are able to be part of the military. I have never taken any military exam or course but I have friends that have and I know it is a treacherous and tormenting experience. It takes a lot of courage, energy, and passion for one to sign up for the military, so…

Pleased To Announce...

Link to the story:  Karmic Beginnings: http://my.w.tt/UiNb/rqB2gYJxZE I am very pleased to announce that I have posted the first chapter of my story on Wattpad to all of you! Those of you that have known me for a very long time know what I have always loved writing, journaling, and reading. I am inseparable from anyone of those things. Some of you also know that for years and years I have been working hard on my dreams to become an acknowledged writer. For years and years, I have been writing from notebook to notebook on story ideas I have come out with from out of the blue. I spent all my free time with my pen grinding on paper, buying stacks of five subject notebooks every year when they are on sale to just use to write my stories in before I switched over to using a computer.  Growing up- there was a lot of objections from family members telling me that I can't become a writer or even attempt because writers make no money unless you break through with some book that will change …
