Chong, how you so amazing? Seriously, did the music gods hit you with a bolt of amazing or something? Anyway, I love your work (in case you couldn't tell) and I have a question. -ahem- WWWWHHHHYYYYY do Actual Male Model Mako and extended Private Lessons have to cost monies? I WANT THEM. BUT I HAVE NO MONIES.
Why thank you!
And oh no they don’t cost a thing unless you want to donate! ^-^’ I’m raising money to help my mom’s food truck start out, so I decided that that was the best way, you can set the price to $0 so that it’s free :3
the korra post you put up made me all nostalgic and ASDJHGALDJG. im too nervous to ask you to be my friend because even though we're the same age i feel like you're older than me and not tumblr older, but SCARY REAL LIFE OLDER. XD your songs have made my summer and even helped me make friends (i introduced them, wat wat).
so for some reason i had this really odd urge to watch a episode of Korra or two, so I decided to watch the first two. And I…I just…I JUST GOT REALLY NOSTALGIC YA KNOW.
I REMEMBER COMING HOME FROM A LAME ASS CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL THE NIGHT THE FIRST AND SECOND EPISODE WAS RELEASED ONLINE ONLY TO BURST INTO MY ROOM GRAB MY LAPTOP AND GO STRAIGHT TO TUMBLR ONLY TO FIND THE FANDOM LITERALLY DEAD. EVERYWHERE. CRYING. CRASHING INTO OBLIVION. NO LOWERCASE LETTER IN SIGHT. And I remember going on a Tinychat ‘cause I was stupid and didn’t have a clear mind to just go and watch it on Korra Nation already, and then Katrina was all like “CHONG. HOLY SHIT HAVE YOU SEEN IT.” and I was all like “WHAT NO WHAT IT’S UP? LAKHFLKAJSHALKJF”
And then I had to beg my mom to use the laptop for just another hour, and after that I grabbed my laptop and went to the site and skipped to the second episode.
I remember when that one scene where Mako KO’ed the other team and Korra had these sex eyes on him I LITERALLY HAD TO PAUSE, WALK OUT OF THE ROOM, INTO THE BATHROOM, AND SCREAM.
GATHER ROUND FOLLOWERS AND I SHALL TELL YOU ABOUT CHONG’S MAGICAL AND TRAGICALLY DULL AND LIFELESS LOVE LIFE.
uhhh, so when i first moved back here to Washington state, I already had some pretty bad encounters and rejections here and there BUT THAT DIDN’T STOP ME FROM IDIOTICALLY FALLING FOR THE FIRST CUTE GUY I SAW NooOOoOOOOOO
Long story short, I was an idiot back then who wanted a relationship so bad it got…well…pathetic.
Eventually senpai did ask me out, only to take it right back the next day.
My conversation with a Yale grad. He was accepted to every Ivy League, and is currently at one of the top occupations in Microsoft.
Him:I know right now, everything seems so unfair. You need to study, all to get compared with other people. Your future is dependent mostly on whether you go to this school, major in this thing, receive this much money, or get this job. I know. I was there, I was you. Studying my ass off for an easier life. You're told that everything right now is the most important, that you need to get As, go to a great college, have an amazing job, generate immense revenue, therefore become happy. But, there's just one thing that I failed to understand. And let me tell you, there are barely any things that I do not understand. Yet, I have no idea why I'm not happy. From a young age, you're told to take these steps and if you succeed, you'll reach happiness. It's not true. I've done every step every mother would tell her child to do, to become, but here I am, unhappy. After many years of trying to find where I went wrong, I realized that I had been looking in the completely wrong place.
Me:Then where do you look?
Him:At your friends. Your relationships. Your family. Your coworkers, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your social life. Many of the richest men in the world aren't happy, why? Because they spent all their lives trying to achieve happiness in the wrong place. You have a ton of money, great. But in the end, we're all sitting in our rocking chairs, and nobody cares who had the most money or who went to the best college. It's about who had the most fun. Who had the most people to look after them, who had the most to look after. The happiest are the ones that have people to call in times of trouble, the ones that had the time to spend with their family and feel all that love. That's what people lack! Love. When you're on your deathbed, everything doesn't matter anymore you see. You'd want people that love you to be around you, to be comforting you, to tell you about all the great things you did for people. You don't want to be alone, with what? A degree? Cash that will never be used? Nobody ever says "wow, I went to a great college and therefore I'm satisfied" in the end. Only the lucky ones get to say "wow, I was surrounded by love my whole life. My time on this earth was beautiful."
Him:But you know, I'm not telling you not to get into a great college or not to do any of the things society tells you to. Go for it, it pays off! It doesn't give you happiness but it takes a lot of stress off your shoulders. All I'm saying is don't make it your everything. If you don't get in somewhere good, don't stress about it. As long as you're okay with the people around you, you're going to be fine. I'm sure of it. Priorities change in the end. We're only people.
Me:I swept the floor, cleaned my room, made my bed, made your bed, cleaned the entire bathroom, vacuumed the floors, dusted out the chimney, polished the wooden floors, dusted the shelves, washed your car, cooked dinner, ran a marathon for charity, cured cancer, and the Queen of Britain herself has invited me personally to have tea in Buckingham palace with her.
Mom:.....did you do the dishes?
Me:Oops, I forgot, gimme a se-
Mom:YOU ARE SO IGNORANT UGH RAGE. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU'RE AT THE COMPUTER ALL DAY, RAGE RAGE rAgEYOU JUST FORGET EVERYTHING ELSE IT'S LIKE YOUR OWN LITTLE WORLD RAGE RAGEE TELL ME WHEN WILL YOU START THINKING FOR OTHERS AND NOT YOURSELF RAGE RAGE RAGEeeEEEee YOU HAD ONE JOB TO DO ONE JOB WAS ALL I ASKED
Dear Chong, I just want to say that I have the exact same problem. My sister's the smart one and wants to be a politician, and I want to be an actress and don't have the best grades. Parents just don't understand. Personally, though, I think you are an amazing person that is mega-talented and are one of the funniest people ever. Lastly, just because you don't do well in school doesn't mean you aren't smart. Parents never get that -.- Love, a devoted Chong fan. <3
Sometimes I don’t know what I’d rather be tbh. A person who has great grades but has absolutely no idea what they want to do in life, or what I am right now….which is a person who gets incredibly mediocre grades but is 100 percent sure of where they want to be.
And it just sucks when I meet someone who has the best of both worlds.
No, even worse, when my parents meet someone like that. Ugh.
