I’m starting to read Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare and the famous line, “Et tu, Brute?” has me shaken.
The theme of betrayal happens all the time in literature and in anime too. Take the song Vogel im Käfig from Attack on Titan, for example. When I listen to the song, I feel anger, betrayal, sadness, disbelief and acceptance. The song plays during my favourite scene in the anime, the betrayal.
Quotes pop up on the loading screen of a game I’m playing. This quote in particular was very interesting. It was cool seeing a quote from a novel I own.
“If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.” – George Orwell, 1984
Don’t worry, my life is mundane. Every time I write about a serious topic like this, there are always a couple of people who ask me if I’m okay, or if there’s anything wrong. I do appreciate the concern, but you have to understand that I think a lot. I’m not blindly consuming content and not thinking about it afterwards! No, I think about the things I read and watch.

P.S. I’m learning how to skateboard. Balancing is not an issue but I need to practice turning.
总是学不会 再聪明一点 is a quote from the song, Never Learn by JJ Lin. You can listen to it here.
Ting Mama De Hua/ Listen to Mother’s Words is a popular song by famous mandopop artist Jay Chou.
Unfortunately I did not finish this on time for Mother’s Day (a couple of hours past) but these are important lyrics that people should follow every day.
P.S. I drew watermelons because my mom and I are going to eat the fruit tomorrow.
I don’t just want to show the “good” parts of my life, but also the flaws I have.
- comes up with some elaborate story in my head on how xx is going to prefer spending time with yy and forget about me (This is a habit now, after happening to me a few times, haha.)
Then I kind of disappear because I don’t want to get in the way. Then it comes true.

There are many types of monsters that scare me: Monsters who cause trouble without showing themselves, monsters who abduct children, monsters who devour dreams, monsters who suck blood… and then, monsters who tell nothing but lies. Lying monsters are a real nuisance: They are much more cunning than others. They pose as humans even though they have no understanding of the human heart; they eat even though they’ve never experienced hunger; they study even though they have no interest in academics; they seek friendship even though they do not know how to love. If I were to encounter such monsters, I would likely be eaten by them… because in truth, I am that monster.”
