Do you ever regret befriending someone?

I feel like a bad person saying this but I really regret befriending B. She is someone who gets stressed out very easily and annoys me with her clingy personality. I think B has a good heart, don’t get me wrong, so far she seems like a nice person. She helped me out a lot during exams and we talked on the phone very often. She also told me what’s been bothering her and I gave her advice.

But because of that B now asumes we are going to be best friends. Don’t get me wrong, I’m greatful for having met so many nice people in my university class. I just don’t see myself being best friends with someone like her. I’m not good with overly-sensitive people, especially not with ones that talk a lot. And by “a lot”, I mean 60mins long audio messages on WhatsApp. I still haven’t listened to those.

She messages me a lot and I don’t know how to react. I don’t want B to think that I’m just using her. You can’t force best-friendship, though, you know? I just think that you don’t need to be in permanent contact with people you usually see everyday and I really really enjoy silence. Sigh.

This must be one of the many struggles of an introverted person.

THE BEST KOREAN DRAMA OF ALL TIME?

I deliberately didn’t write more about the plot of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo because I’m just going to assume that everyone who reads this is going to watch this drama anyway. Yes, EVERYONE.

Now, I think I’m really hard to please when it comes to dramas so trust me when I tell you that this drama was probably the best one I’ve seen yet. Yeah, even better than Age of Youth and Reply 1997.

I love light-hearted and happy dramas with a well done romance and comedy storyline. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo fulfilled all these criterias. The actors were amazing and I fell in love with Jung Joon Hyung. What a man. Sigh.

Everytime he said or did something cute to Bok Joo I freaked out and squealed like a pathetic fangirl. So yeah, there is that.

What I also loved about Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo was the well rounded ending. I even cried, not because it was sad, but because I actually loved it so much.

Definitely a must-see drama!
