A reminder for you to pause, breathe, and remember all the (not-so) simple things
Please read with a light heart and a cup of coffee
I love to answer stuff in Quora. Basically, a place where all the civilized, smart people live, without the dirty anonymous stuff (glaring at you, Ask.FM and CuriousCat).

A question I answered a while ago was, What are things that you don't know how to do that most people know?

Some answered lightly. Ranging from the inability to follow direction to disorientation and to tie a tie and using the chopstick. My answer?

How to make friends and keeping them.

Believe it or not, I have at least 10 drafted posts in the dashboard, waiting to be published. I don't know if it's because of whatever happened nowadays, but I kept having this urge to post something lighter. It's lovely to see such, don't you think? So here you go, my current home screen and lock screen. My current phone is LG Stylus 2.

L O C K S C R E E N ; It's Jane's photo from this post! It's so good I know I just have to save and use it as my lock screen. I find that using photos of sea or beach make me feel calm instantly so I use those photos a lot. The bluer the wallpaper is, the calmer I feel.

H O M E S C R E E N ; I changed my home screen wallpaper a lot just like I change my blog's layout. In a week, I could change my wallpaper everyday. Currently it's this photo of Wendy and Joy of Red Velvet taken in Pepero Day (November 11th). It just look so cute I have to change my previous wallpaper. Somehow it fits the holiday mood, isn't it? Somewhat festive and rather Christmas-y. I feel warm just by looking at it. There's also weather widget in which I use more for the clock and 360 Security Lite booster to speed up my phone.

My to-go source for wallpaper is LINE Deco. It has good wallpaper photos from everywhere, anything you want, with size that fits your screen. It also has many widgets if you're into customizing your own phone. I like it. Other than that, I usually use wallpapers from everywhere. Blogs, sites, comics, or snaps from my daily life.

Consider yourself tagged. What's your current home screen and lock screen? Please do it in your blog or show me in comment section! :D

I try to keep this blog politic-free, despite it's one of my favorite thing to discuss in the world (good luck guessing what number one is). But after what happened last Wednesday, I can't help but feel my heart sank. The election result unfolded in front of my eyes was the equivalent of someone taking all the puppies and kitties and replaced them with rows of horrible distorted pumpkin. My heart sank. I feel hopeless. A bunch of negative thoughts popped up in my head. And I'm not even American.

But you know what people say. America sneezes, and the rest of the world caught flu.

Along with change, sooner or later it will take effect. And it will effect everyone in the world, you, who read this, included. But you know what? Things aren't over. All of the good and more sane people is still here, still continue to fight. Still continue to make things right. And with other barriers being broken, rest assured we still have one hand on the wheel. Eventhough we couldn't control everything.

This is a quote that helped me getting through every dark days. Days where the negatives seem to take control. Days where nothing seem to go right. I hope you will find strength from this quote and continue to fight. “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light.”

It's easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today, but there will be dark days ahead of us too. There will be days where you feel all alone, and that's when hope is needed most. No matter how buried it gets, or how lost you feel, you must promise me that you will hold on to hope. Keep it alive. We have to be greater than what we suffer. My wish for you is to become hope; people need that. And even if we fail, what better way is there to live? As we look around here today, at all of the people who helped make us who we are, I know it feels like we're saying goodbye, but we will carry a piece of each other into everything that we do next, to remind us of who we are, and of who we're meant to be.
