10 years later...

Where were you 10 years ago?

10 years ago, I was 12, sitting in my 7th grade Science class. That morning I was woke up and got ready for school like any other day, still half asleep and in a rush as usual since I wanted to sleep just a few minutes more. The entire room, the entire school, for the first time, for that entire hour, was silent besides my teacher's voice as she explained what had happened. She drew pictures of the Twin Towers on the white board and illustrated the planes as they crashed into the towers. I was in disbelief. Even later as I saw TVs playing the news and seeing those pictures on the white board come to life, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It felt like a dream, my body was numb, and I couldn't look away. I don't quite remember what I was thinking, but it couldn't have been much else but "why?". I remember after school I took my dog to my old elementary school and sat on the slide with her looking up at the sky. I was so scared, holding her and thinking that any moment it could happen to me. 

10 years later... here I am. And here I hope to stay with the rest of my fellow Americans. May peace be brought to those suffering and those lost, and the rest of the world.

Never forget 9/11/01


  1. It's so weird that it's been 10 years already : /

  2. What the heck? How come you can comment on my blog but I can't comment on yours?? I wrote an insanely long comment but I can't post it. o_o

  3. It's so crazy! I was in 7th grade too, but I actually woke up early that day for some reason so I was up at 6am... When I wake up early enough (and still do) I watch the news and this came up almost immediately and it was so scary seeing it in action!

    So once we got to school we were in home room and our teacher had to explain it to us. No one could teach for the rest of the day, our focus was on the news that was playing. Luckily it was the beginning of the school year so we didn't have a lot to learn at first but it was terrifying.

    I think it's great that our stories are pretty similar! I know I was holding onto my dog for comfort.

  4. I can't believe it's been 10 years already...

    I was in 5th grade when it happened, even when my teacher explained the situation and I saw the news, it was so difficult to swallow such a thing happened...

  5. Dewd, Blogger's been so damn gay lately. One of my other friends wasn't able to post either. *kicks blogger* PULL YOSELF TOGETHER YO! \(Ò_ó) -fist of fury-

    Haha, don't worry about it : D I've been SOOO busy lately. and with such long comments, I don't blame you for waiting with replying. These replies take FOREVER and I'm replying NOW because I don't wanna go to bed yet.. xD got a glass of pepsi max to finish first. It's like 1AM and I gotta get up at 5:30Am. Ugh fml. At least I get off from uni at 11AM already.

    Aw you're so sweet <3 Thanks love! A lot of people say that.. and then they yell at me for having such long bangs XD haha! I really wanna cut my hair short.. I'm SO over this dolly-dolly-cutesy-look. I wanna look RAW and BRAND NEW, baby! HAHAHAHAHA LOL omg XD <3 You're insane!

    Haha, did you notice the pic of me un-edited and all? MY CHEEKS ARE SO RED! Do I look like a greenland-person or something? XD Haha, I'm so drunkenly flushed like an Asian.. *giggle* oh well, we had a freaking BLAST! I never realized that I'd get along so well with Jeongie and all her friends (and some of my old friends too), cause it's been 1,000,000 years and I didn't even meet Emiru nor Mads until Friday.. oh wait, I met Emiru at my own party, but my party sucked... LOL. *hides* I'm gonna attend other people's parties from now on. NEVER having my own ever again : P

    HAHA, actually Emiru is sitting there (you can see his hand) and she was on the way back in the cage again : D she's so so so cuddly and cute and sweet! >_>" Nothing like my vicious piece of lion head bunny. She's taking her breed a bit too seriously. *pets self*

    HAHAHAH! I have no idea.. but yes, it's for an upcoming Disney movie/thing, I believe. He's so fucking talented and he has this whole room PACKED with Disney figurines and shit. He's really into his job and his job is freaking HARDCORE! >: D

    Huh? O_O I use this random Nilens Jord angled brush. I'm not even sure it's for blending at all, but that's how I do it >: D MWAHAH. Aw thanks babe <3 when we do a swap some day, I'll send you such a brush too!

    HAHAHA the shiz in the drink are actually a ship from a Kinder Surprise Chocolate Egg and two dogs from there too. You know the video from Jeongie's blog? (that I posted on mine too) Yeah, Emiru and I are unwrapping the dogs there.. Mads was sitting across from me and he got the ship. So he put the ship in Emiru's drink and Emiru put the dogs in there XD LIKE A BAWS!

    Mads is a baws ;) That's what's up!

    YEAH BABY! That soup was so fucking yummy, it's ridiculous! *___* sadly it was too spicy for my poor tummy to handle, so I only had half a cup of kimchi. But DANNNG it was delicious! Jeongie promised to help me develop a recipe for a mild version of it.. I reckon it's gonna be sexy! >: D

  6. HAHAH! OMG! "I once saw Cady Heron wearing army pants and flip flops... so I went out and got army pants and flip flops" LOLLOLLOL you crazy kid : P

    They are! They're SO SO SO sweet together! Jeongie is crazy but Emiru is even crazier! >: D they're made for each other, I swear!

    O_O" Well.. a Kinder egg is a hollow white/milk chocolate egg with a little yellow plastic yolk in it that you can open. Inside the yolk is usually a tiny figurine, a thing you can assemble or something like that. XD They're for kids, really, but fuck the police - I bought 'em for Emiru >: D

    The drinks were awesome! Kiwi wine mixed with Faxe Kondi (kinda like Mountain Dew)! SO YUMMYYY!!

    I agree with you! It's stupid to edit the towers out! T__T; you shouldn't sugar coat things.. Time goes on and I have the deepest respect for everyone who came to rescue people and animals during the incident. It's still super surreal to me. Watching the clips from back then, seeing the images, reading the articles.. it's like it's a movie.

    Don't worry love! I'm doing an EPIC full-on review on the brush! >: D I really wanna get one of their contour brushes that I've been eyeing for a while. I love how Sigma feels so nice (they're nice and weighty and you can feel that they're good quality) yet it's still super affordable.

    Omg my left hand is cramping from typing so fast right now.. >__>"

    HAHA, oh woahhh! I'm glad you're excited : D I wanna do it right, cause my friend really wants to know how to do it.. I'm only doing it for her, as I suck at taking requests and doing tutorials in general -__-" *shoots self* LOLLOL you're so damn random, gurl!

    DUUUDE that's so exciting! OMG HAVE A NICE TRIP! >: D COME TO DENMARK! *demands* I will cook you lasagna and take you to see the Little Mermaid! <3 awww don't ever get too busy to blog! T_T /crey. I love your blog so much <3 and YOU! *clings to*

    GO LOOK AT MY NEW LAYOUT! >: D tell me you love it!

  7. It's crazy that it's already been 10 years. I was in 7th grade too.. I don't think any of us will ever be able to forget... <_<

    & well, I hope your lenses are treating your eyes better!!!!!!

  8. HAHAHA omg XD don't infect me with your lazy ; D Aww baby! I have school school and more school T__T; Korean grammar rules are so damn annoying! *kicks around* I WISH I HAD A STICKY-BRAIN! (if that makes any sense.. lol)

    I IZ A DINOSAWRRRR baby! >: D OMG get it for him! It's great for winter tho, cause it's really warm and cozy! I love wearing it around at home when I have nothing to do.. I went to the post office in it yesterday tho O_O" I made some kids SUPER happy.. and then I made their parents rather worried for my mental state. XD LOL! Like a BAAWS!

    IT'S GROWING LIKE A FREAKING JUNGLE UP IN HURR! -faints- It's so annoying.. and I'm afraid to trim it myself cause I'm having it cut at the salon soon.. This new salon opened just 3 blocks from here. Gonna go check it out : D Bringing a pic of Taemin from just after the Lucifer-era, I think! AH YEH-YUHH~ I'm gonna be a sexy beast! (I wish..) What does PYH mean? O_Ô Park Yong Hee? You haz Park Yong Hee style hair? *___*" -faints- Don't tease a girl!

    DEWD are you fuckin' me right now? I just denied two requests thinking that I didn't know them.. and as there was no message attached to them, I figured they weren't anybody that I knew. -__-" Add me again pl0x! IDENTIFY YOURSELF PLEASE! -kicks with soccer boot- Nobody named Katie tho >_>" -waits- Yeah, I'm sucky when it comes to that entry. I just simply don't wanna do it -____-" and most of my followers probably don't give a shit anyway.. /le sigh

    HAHAHA, my friends are fucking awesome!!!! I'm so happy that we're all getting along so well in my class : D it's epic! DUDE get over here!!! -drags to Copenhagen- I'd house you during your entire trip, cook for you, show you around and take you shopping! >: D LET'S GO! I'd even cook you your damn veggie lasagna! -__-" *waits for Katie to arrive*

    Yeah I knowwww! D:< the glitter one chipped on me today -__-" DAMMIT. Too soon to chip imo, but it's so pretty tho! And yeah.. it's really streaky : ( trust me. It sucks so bad.. GET THE STUDIO LINE! The blushes are nice (at least Pink Passion is!).. Tickled pink is a bit too sheer for me. I love their mineral blush in "Joy" too! Their shadows are a bit powdery, but what I truly love is their nail polishes >: D "Desert Haze" is freaking AWESOME!

    GIRL GO GET TO IT! >: D and munch down some of that cream puff tart for me, yeah? /le hug
