I've always been fairly open about myself and my life on the blog, but as I've matured and my blogging has become more sporadic, I've realized that there are some facts that have yet to surface.  Because some of these details constitute large parts of my personality and my interests, I thought that now would be as good a time as any to write about them.

Prep For A Day

1. I really enjoy listening to K-pop.  It all started about two years ago when I watched an interview with the K-pop group BTS (yes, that BTS), and as I learned more about the members and their music, I became hooked.  I wouldn't consider myself a connoisseur of K-pop by any means, but I particularly like listening to BTS, Blackpink, Red Velvet, Twice, and Got7.  I would love to know any recommendations that you have!

2. I also love K-dramas.  Thanks to this blog, I started watching K-dramas several years ago, and I've been obsessed ever since.  For anyone who is unfamiliar with K-dramas, they're similar to American soap operas in format, but their content is often softer and more lighthearted.  Some of my ultimate favorites are Goblin, Boys Over Flowers, Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, Moon Lovers:  Scarlet Heart Ryeo, Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, The Moon Embracing the Sun, and I'm Not a Robot.

3. My MBTI type is INFJ (here's an overview of the different types), and my Enneagram type is Type 1 (here's a brief description of those types).  I don't think any of the personality tests are completely foolproof, but I find them very interesting nonetheless.

4. I love ballet, despite having absolutely no aptitude for it.  It's one of the things that I really wish I had been interested in when I was younger, because it's such a mesmerizing art.  I have so much respect for ballet dancers (and dancers in general) for making physically demanding moves look effortless.

5. Chemistry is really interesting to me!  I know that most people either love it or hate it, and I'm definitely in the first boat.  I think it's amazing that one subject can explain how so many things happen in a particular way, such as why objects appear to be certain colors.

6. Empathy is the most important quality to me, hands down.  Empathy means sharing another being's feelings and instincts in order to understand them, and it requires a conscious effort--but I believe that the world would be a much better place if we all could learn to empathize with each other and all of the non-human organisms on the planet.  I'm very passionate about empathizing with animals, as many schools of thought portray other animal species as purely instinctual creatures.  Animals are not humans, but they have their own degrees of awareness, and we should learn to understand that awareness.  Also, here's a great video on the differences between empathy and sympathy.

7. If I could have a conversation with people from any eras of history, I would choose Audrey Hepburn (obviously), Elizabeth the First, Jane Goodall, C.S. Lewis, James A. Wight (James Herriot), Edith Stein, Maya Angelou, Anne Frank, Mary E. Mahoney, and J.R.R. Tolkien, to name a few.
