Great Expectations

"Nonsense," she returned, "nonsense. This will pass in no time."

"Never, Estella!"

"You will get me out of your thoughts in a week."

"Out of my thoughts! You are part of my existence, part of myself. You have been in every line I have ever read, since I first came here, the rough common boy whose poor heart you wounded even then. You have been in every prospect I have ever seen since - on the river, on the sails of the ships, on the marshes, in the clouds, in the light, in the darkness, in the wind, in the woods, in the sea, in the streets. You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become acquainted with. The stones of which the strongest London buildings are made, are not more real, or more impossible to be displaced by your hands, than your presence and influence have been to me, there and everywhere, and will be. Estella, to the last hour of my life, you cannot choose but remain part of my character, part of the little good in me, part of the evil. But, in this separation I associate you only with the good, and I will faithfully hold you to that always, for you must have done me far more good than harm, let me feel now what sharp distress I may. O God bless you, God forgive you!"

In what ecstasy of unhappiness I got these broken words out of myself, I don't know. The rhapsody welled up within me, like blood from an inward wound, and gushed out.

2011 K-Pop Music Fest

To celebrate 50 years of diplomatic ties between South Korea and Australia, Australia will be hosting the 2011 K-Pop Music Fest this November The concert will feature lots of K-Pop stars, just to name a few: SNSD, CNBlue, B2ST, 2AM, miss A, TVXQ, KARA, 4minute, SECRET.... best of all there will also be my personal favourite SHINee!

Hooray! The super awesome SHINee! And while I like all the members of SHINee, my ultimate favourite is...

Hi there happy face! My bias Jong Hyun! *Runs off to hyperventilate* Can you believe they are going to be in Australia all at once?

However, there is a huge "BUT" amidst all this happy crazy screaming! BUT... the concert will be held in Sydney, not Melbourne. NOOOOO... I realised that all the big concerts are always held in Sydney, or even if they come to Melbourne, they will be first held in Sydney. This is terribly unfair! WHY YOU NO COME MELBOURNE?!

And if the concert being held in another state nine hundred and seven kilometres away from me isn't bad enough, the concert will also be held right smack in the middle of my exam period! So I wouldn't be able to go anyway

"I'm going to put on a potato sack and a black hat and sit in a corner and eat paper forever!" *Runs off and cries*

My friends are flying to Sydney for the concert though, because they booked their tickets before our exam timetable was released. And apparently I can take comfort in the fact that my very kind friends were forced to offered to take a million photos of Jong Hyun for me, but under the conditions of, in their own words, "...if I can remember his face" Why do they tease the sad-little-me so?

Photos of him will make me quite a satisfied, happy girl though So I guess I'm looking forward to all the photos that would be taken on behalf of myself!

Aww, a Jjong picture
