There was a Japanese arts and crafts setup at a mall in the city that I went to today. I had planned on visiting it since a week ago. The event was held on the third floor of the mall, and I noticed that on this floor visitors were given the opportunity to be creative and write on the space provided with a chalk.
One part of the wall asked, “Who am I fighting?”
What the wall initially looked like:
Looks like someone trying to learn martial arts like Kris. =P One of the visitors wrote that they they were fighting their KFC chicken addiction and another wrote Sauron from The Lord of the Rings. xD Most people wrote that they were fighting themselves, which I understand. One even went deep enough to say, “The depths of my soul.”
What I wrote:
“Universe > Galaxy”…as in to prove that Universe is greater than Galaxy. =P We all know that the universe is larger than all of the galaxies that exist. One can’t deny it. Also notice “xoxo” as part of the Tic-Tac-Toe game on the wall. xD
Anyhow, the reason I wrote “Universe” is because “Universe” has often been listed as my location for my online profile, including my Gravatar profile, which is linked to my WordPress blog (see here). I’ve had it since I started this blog. The same goes for my Twitter account, which I had since 2010. Sometimes I use “Antarctica” as my location because I like to be random. =P I’ve even used the word “universe” as part of my e-mail address that I had as a teen. Kekeke!
What the wall looks like now:
Another part of the wall asked us to name our favorite word. Don’t mind if some bad word pop up. Some people’s minds need to be cleaned out. -_- On the left is what the wall looked like before I had written anything, and on the right is what I added in:
Someone had written “SWAG”, so I decided to add “GALAXY” above it ’cause that’s what came to mind when I read the word. =P It’s not my favorite word. I later decided that I should write something that relates to me, so I wrote, “MOONLIGHT” in the space next to “GALAXY”. I then saw the close proximity of the words. I read out, “MOONLIGHT GALAXY.” I thought, “‘Moonlight Galaxy’…that actually sounds like a good username! Why didn’t I think of this before?” My creative mind was working while I was in a creative space. =P
I then searched on Google “Moonlight Galaxy” to see whether it was a popular name, and I noticed that it wasn’t, but the first result that I got on Google was the name of the last episode of my favorite childhood anime, Sailor Moon! The last episode is Episode 200 and it’s called Usagi’s Love! The Moonlight Lights up the Galaxy. I thought, “Wahhh…’The Moonlight Lights up the Galaxy’. What a pretty title. If only it was pretty in real since I call myself Moonlight and Kris calls himself Galaxy.” Bwahahaha!
In the last episode, Usagi’s Love! The Moonlight Lights up the Galaxy, Sailor Moon in her Princess Serenity form has angel wings and battles Sailor Galaxia, who is the last villain of the series. Sailor Galaxia has a good side to her, which eventually appears in the end when she is back to her normal self. I imagine it as Moonlight vs. Galaxy. Maybe I should have written that down on the wall that asked, “Who am I fighting?” =P
This reminds me…One time a friend of mine from uni., whose quite big and tall, said jokingly, “Let’s fight” and then he did one of those fighting poses that video game characters do when starting a battle like in Tekken or Street Fighter, and then there was tiny me just standing there saying, “Fine.” Then I did my own fighting pose. We both ended up laughing. xD On a random note, he once felt like a father when my friend and I took a group photo with him. While smiling at the camera, he said, “These are my daughters.” He was younger than us. LMAO! I thought, “Are you okay?” =P Anyhow, I will learn martial arts so I can do a flying kick on Kris.
Going back to the topic, one girl and guy at the mall wrote on a wall that they wanted to be a rockstar/jedi when they were 5 years old. They wrote it in front of me. Since I wrote “Galaxy” in another section of the wall, and read, “Jedi,” this question came to me, “Has Kris watched the Star Wars trilogy?” The opening crawl in it begins with the words, “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away….” ^^’
Besides this, there were very few people around when I was writing on the wall, so I knew that I wasn’t going to bump into any EXO fan, but the thought of it did cross my mind because of the large number of Asians within the area. It turns out that when I had left the mall and walked further into the city, I spotted a girl in front of me with a red “WOLF 88” jacket. This was the first time I spotted an EXO fan like this around here. I was surprised ’cause I was just thinking about bumping into an EXO fan and it happened! Weird…
Moving on, Kris has finally joined Instagram under the username galaxy_fanfan. Remember when I talked about Kris‘ username being GalaxyBoi101 in the post, Pre-Debut Photos of EXO’s GalaxyBoi101? All I have to say is…judging real hard, and judging myself too. I asked myself, “Is this the person that I chose to be a fan of in all of Hollywood, Bollywood, Dollywood, Lollywood and all the entertainment industries in the world with the word ‘wood’ and without the word ‘wood’?” *side eyes* Just kidding! I do think Kris has lost his mind in the galaxy. We need to bring his mind back down to Earth. xD Sometimes I feel that he just wants to be funny like me. =P
I typed this, but I decided not to send it… xD Well, it has been two years since I’ve been a fan…it should be totally acceptable to say this like close buddies. =P LOL at “close buddies”. Even better, “Kris is my best friend in the whole wide universe.” xD Who am I kidding? Kekeke!
I still haven’t seen Kris yet like other fans (it’s okay, ’cause I know that there is always a reason for everything, and maybe it’s better for me). I would have if EXO came to Australia right after they debuted, like they were initially supposed to, and things were a lil’ more calm, but now EXO is so popular, including Kris, and I’ve somewhat moved on from K-Pop. Clearly, I haven’t been too happy about many things in regards to K-Pop.
If these stars chose to have a life that is not normal/unordinary, then fine…but please don’t drag fans into it. Let fans live their life…let them find someone to love and be happy with and let them live a normal/ordinary life that doesn’t include them dedicating their time, money, and life to a K-Pop star that can’t return the same amount of love that they give. This perfectly sums up how I feel at the moment. Furthermore, one would be lying to themselves if he/she doesn’t realize that K-Pop companies take advantage of fans. Sometimes I wonder whether the person we support even realizes it. Then again, we have a choice. A choice to let it happen or not.
P.S. I saw a duck plushie that was like the one Kris had posed with on Valentine’s Day. It was in a Korean store in Chinatown that I had visited today. =P
