A Love of Coke is bitter

 

Everyday, I have to have it at least once a day. I obsessed about it because it makes me happy. It gives feeling of familiarity and security and brings excitement back into my life with sweetness. Especially, I desperately need it when I faced with problems or stuck in the moment. It made me become like an Energizer bunny that makes me keep going, going, and going. I gave name, Coco. It wears silver coat with black patterns and red buttons. Sometimes, it wears a green, yellow, or red bandage depends on the mood of my day. Coco likes to stay cold and loves to play with ice cubes. In most of the time, it remains silence. If I was eating, it stands next to me until I am done with food. And then, it gets extremely excited and not hesitates to express a full range of emotions. It can be happy as volcano explosion. It is great with any kind of food; sometimes it makes food tastes better.

Coco likes to be treated well. If you were throwing it around and perhaps you dropped it. That would be a big mess. Coco would get so mad that it could explode. One day, I threw it into my bag pack by accident. Coco got mad at me by showing eruption and stained all over my textbooks. Another day, I forgot to put it in refrigerator. It got heated up and just sighs. It needs my help to wear a cap. I have to use fingers to pop it open. Do not let it stay alone for a long time when it wears a cap. Coco would not give you any excitement, but it can still give you sweetness. Because, Coco born with sweetness and it is the sweetest thing I ever had. The feeling when I look at bubbles and sparkles in and out side of clear crystal glass and drink an ice cold Coke is one of the things I would not forget to appreciate.

Luckily, Coco has many families. If you go to the market, you can easily find variety flavors: vanilla, cherry, lime and plain cokes. It is great that I have an opportunity to pick a flavor for a day. I have been enjoying Coca-Cola since I lived oversea. You do not have to worry not find them out side of the country. It is available everywhere. They can be enjoyed by anyone. It refreshes thirst and gives a moment to restore the spirit. Many Coca-Colas are waiting inside of banding machine to serve satisfaction at any time.

Sometimes, I am torn apart by guilt for not drinking them for weeks. Because, it can cause cavities that makes me go to the dental office. Coco filled with sugar and the acidity can eats away at my teeth. My teeth can become weaker. Therefore, Coca-Cola increased my visits the dentist. I will still love it, even, it is bitter to love. The pain of love is the pain of being alive.

Kyle Park endeavor to reach a goal

Image

   On the beautiful day in Korea, Kyle Park was twenty-two years old, packed his belonging and went on the airplane to Seattle, Washington, United States of America. “Learning something new can be a scary experience. The hardest things I have ever had to do were leave my family and friends behind.” On that day, it was sunny and clear to see Mountain Rainier. “I felt pleasantly warm and welcoming from the environment.”

   Kyle was born in Ohio. His father was a Korean National Guard and designated to stay at the Air Force Base in Ohio. After four years, they returned to Korea. As he was born in America and his parents have Korean citizenship, he had a dual citizenship that requires him to service for Korean military when he was turned twenty. After serving two years for the country, his father told him, “There are more opportunities in America. Since you have citizenship, it is time for you to become independent and live a better life.” Unasked questions swirled in his head, “What am I going to do? How am I going to communicate? How can I live by myself?”

   As he moved to the unfamiliar country, language, and people, he became really quiet. “One day, I went to McDonald for the first time, I stood in front of cashier anxiously with fear and I did not know what to say.” He was always afraid of new experience, but he decided that self-assurance was an important factor that he should learn. “New situations always make me nervous, and my new life here was no exception. However, I met good friends from English as a Second Language Class who have a similar background. Although they were nervous, they did not seem to be embarrassed about not knowing how to speak. I began to feel more at ease.”

   Three years later, he was admitted to University of Washington for engineering major. “I was happy when I got an acceptance letter, I knew that I can make my family happy.” He was able to choose his major because his family have been emotionally supported him from Korea. His father was very quiet when he was growing up, and father became demonstrative in supporting excellence since they fell apart. His father directed him to find what he likes and what is good for a stable future. Kyle describes that Studying in engineering is like solving problems, creating, interacting, and challenging that are rarely bored. “My father sends me emails that have inspiring articles everyday. He calls every weekend to see how I was doing. He has been a great supporter” He was not alone in this vast world.

   As he is a student who is pursuing the bright future, he is ready to move forward. “I had this fear of speaking in a different language. It causes me shortness of breath. Of course, I am still terrified of speaking. Nevertheless, I will keep challenging myself. Everything occurred for a reason.” His ultimate goal is to buy a house in Hawaii for parents where they can rest and enjoy. He says, “I will never regret and I always will do my best for me and for my great supporters.”

Play guitar is worth time

Play guitar is worth time

Learning something new is always exciting. I never held a guitar before, it is hard to task to learn without instructor. The first thing is to learn how the sounds of the guitar comes out from. The vibration of the strings from the guitar’s neck to its bridge are well combine to make sounds. Now pressing on the fret, it is still hardest so far. If you think that you will press the fret well because you have longer fingers. It is not true. i think that flexible finger is the most important part of playing guitar.
When you are playing the guitar, it is also important to make sure its tuned. gh4wxb3r3eezwroszjpt

I found this useful free application from iTune Market. If it is not properly tuned, you do not want to play guitar. It happened with me. I was wondering why i was not playing the code right. It was because i did not know i have to tune it. haha.

Another thing that should be kept in mind on how to play guitar in right posture. If you are beginner and do not posture the right way, you might have back pain like i did. Try to watch many videos you can to learn how experts in playing the guitar. This will improve the chances of being better in playing the guitar.

For beginner beginner, there are notes on the guitar; E-A-D-G-B-e. The notes can be found on the neck of your guitar. I’m still practicing this basic notes and trying to familiar with. I will keep update with my progress in playing guitar.

Movie night

Movie night

Wreck-it Ralph movie was well engaged with original video games. It is the best video game movie ever i watched.
In the movie, the bad guy in the shadow of his heroic character Fix-It Felix Jr faced with the daily ridicule of playing. He wanted to have attention from Fix-It Felix Jr’s Fellos and decides to abandon the confines of the game in the hope for finding the gold medal that will gain respect from pixel pals.
He eventually earn gold medal from the Halo-esque, ‘Hero’s Duty’. By accident, he landed into sickly-sweet kart racing game ‘Sugar Rush,’ where he meets glitch, Venellope. He decides to help her win into the circuit.
Wreck-It Ralph was ingenious and entertaining.

The ways to prevent Dog barking

Recently, i have received a letter from Homeowners Association that regarding a recent violation of the Rules of Regulations. I live in Condominium, Ella was barking concern to other  neighbors. The complaint was filed as Ella barks almost every night for two hours. My dog barks whenever people go in and out, someone is parking, walking through the hallway, and barking last for couple hours. This neighbor can’t fall asleep every night and wakes up multiple times in the middle of the night. This complaint was telling more than the truth. First of all, Ella was not barking every night and she can’t bark for couple hours. This person portrait her as an aggressive dog. I was mad at first but i admit that she does bark at the window sometimes. Therefore, i decided to register for obedience training. It costs me couple hundred dollars for six times class. I would like to share couple tips to prevent dog barking.

Dogs bark for many reasons or no reason. It can be warning to another animal, responding to noise, playing, exciting, fearing, and no reason. You do not want them to stop barking. You do want to stop a dog barking when you ask them to. We tell them gently to be quiet or distract from barking by commanding them with treat. My puppy seems to look secure and not barks when i covered her crate with cloth sheet. Although, i gave her hug with nice smile. Her barking behavior seems to stop. I mentioned the important of your relationship with puppy and positive reinforcement can help the situation much better.
