Hmong Culture & History / Re: Best Hmong Movie in a long time

I expected the acting to be cringey but surprisingly all the actors and actresses did so awesome.  Lots of clever lines and funny moments.  A couple of good life lessons taught too.

I'm too chicken.  At night, my mind would wonder too much.  BUTTTTT if I have a warm body next to me, yes, it'll be heaven.

Dok_Champa, thanks for sharing.  That is a soothing video.

I've been following these vlogs:

1. kab&koobvwj lubneej
     One of their videos: https://youtu.be/M_uuO58ErsU
     * They recently got married.  I like the guy because he is hard working and he loves his wife a lot, and his wife is hard working too, and she is a sweet person.

2. Tais hli
     One of her videos: https://youtu.be/857K1zT74mw
     * Her videos aren't the best but I like her because I think that she is a strong person.

I feel an acute melancholy feeling when I think about and see the stark contrast between real life and the life that I wish I could have.  I wish I could easily leave the 21st society behind and go live in the wild, in the woods, and be one with nature.  It would be so awesome to block out all of the noise of the modern world and go and live in a cabin in the woods that is next to a stream or a creek. I could grow my own vegetables and raise my own pigs and chickens.  How nice it would be to not be concerned about the goings-on of the world, to act as though instagram, facebook, or modern technology exist only in a distant galaxy.  To truly live in the woods safely, peacefully, blissfully, separate from society.

But, I am jolted back to reality when I realize I cannot have that dream.

Anytime I want to live the life of my dreams in my head, though, I listen to this song and it takes me straight there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvvQb7zTh6E.

Households where the husband has the higher IQ (and is involved in parenting), the children do better. In addition, the children also go on to be successful.

Dads do what moms can't. They teach their offspring about confidence, self-worth, competitivenes s, ambition, and pretty much how to go out into the world. They actually play a part their child's brain development.

"Households where the husband has the higher IQ (and is involved in parenting)" = very rare to see.  But when that's the case, everyone wins, especially the children.

Are we talking about desktop wallpaper or interior wallpaper?

LOL.  "Interior of house" wallpaper.  I cringe when I hear people say they want to put up wallpaper in their house.  That is a stupid decision!  ;D

General Discussion / This song makes me so happy

It's sounds so romantic!  I wish I understood what they were singing.  What are the lyrics???

The male singer in brown is my past imagined crush, the unicorn/wholesome fisher guy I dreamed of.  I dreamed he would look like that, come and sweep me away, and we'd live by a stream in the woods.  So much for my dreams!  But, it's still so nice to see a guy that looks like the ones I imagined in my mind so long ago.  I like wholesome looking guys that have a certain aura about them like that.

Dear Concerned,

Mind your own business just as she is doing hers.

It's her body, her right. If she chooses to expose anything you don't approve of, at least she isn't exposing yours.

But you are applying the wrong standard to her industry. She's an entertainer. Anything she can do to entertain--and, yes, to make money--she
has that right to do so. There's nothing wrong with making money.

Entertainers have their own ideas about life than others in other industries do. There's a competition to stand out among others in every way.  Also, they may have children. But they may want to raise their children after their lines of work. Nothing wrong with that. If one of her daughters turns out to be a singer exposing her belly in a bikini on Facebook, that's their idea of life. 

Yet, I don't think every of her children will follow her path.

I understand you are torn between a Celine-Dion mannerism who does not show her body to make money or be famous and an all-out Madonna who throws out
almost every bit of her onto the stage and on films. But who is to say singers have to behave in just one way? Remember: they are entertainers; whatever they can do to entertain and to stand out--and even to change perspectives--is key. Each singer wants to be unique and superior in his or her own way.

Now, if she's your role model, then just admire whatever she does. Even encourage your children to admire her. There's no need to put her down just because she has come up with a new idea to stand out in her line of work.

--Abby

Dear Abby,

Hehehe.  Thank you so much for your enlightening response!  I really appreciate it.  Made me look at things in a different way.  Gave me a new perspective.  Thank you!  However, it is still my right to no longer respect her because to me, she is no longer respecting herself by exposing her body in the Madonna style.  I hope she rethinks her strategy for making money.  Is losing respect and admiration from people who value modesty over trashy entertainment (being almost naked in public view), worth it to her?  If her answer is yes, good for her.  But I will unfollow and she will lose a fan.

Sincerely,
No longer concerned

Speaking of being alone.  There was a time when people felt lonely they could go out in public to the movies and to the malls, but now people can't even freely do those things anymore (without some level of fear) because of covid.  When do you think life can go back to normal again, like to the times before covid?  God!  It's so depressing to think that we can never go back to the pre-covid days.

Life is forever altered and changed.  Makes me so pissed at the dumbazzes who won't get vaccinated or wear a mask.  All the stupid idiots prolonging the suffering for everyone else.  Eff all the azzwholes!  Some people have low-level animal brains!  I'm so mad at all the idiots.

I was alone on Christmas.  My kids were with their dad for Christmas and my lover was in FL with his parents.  It was nice to be alone for a day but on the second day, I realized I was human.  I do need to be around other people.  What will I do when the kids are all grown up and they both move out and if I don't have a partner?  So, it got me thinking that I should have a partner in my old age.

I feel as if I'm standing on the edge of a precipice looking out towards a world that I no longer know how to navigate. My heart beats in my chest, a frightened little thing. I am so many emotions that I never knew could exist simultaneously . Sadness coupled with relief. Anticipation on the verge of exhaustion. Acceptance made hollow by regret.

I feel the exact same way.  Damn.   :'(

Dear Abby,

I hope you don't mind me asking your thoughts on something.  I used to like Dib Xwb because I thought she was classy and modest.  But then she started losing judgement, in my opinion.  I mean, I could be way off base.  On the other hand, she reminds me of Ariana Grande, who went from innocent and sweet to slutty and trashy as far as body image goes.  Dib Xwb became Deeda and, I mean, look at this: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=500325488126704&id=100044477704451.

She has young kids, and she has daughters.  Why would she have an onlyfans page posing in lingerie, where, her pictures leave little to the imagination at all?  I don't know where her brain went.  Or is it that she is that desperate for attention or money?  Anyway, like I said, I used to love her because I thought she had integrity and was a role model for young Hmong girls.  But she's proving to be another "expose thy body to earn a living" woman.  I feel disappointed and let down yet again by another musician that I admired.  I am fast losing respect for her.

Anyway, what do you think, Abby?  Am I wrong in my assessment of Deeda's risque pictures?

Sincerely,
Concerned

A few weeks ago I went through boxes that had in them old things, very old things from my past.  “Out of sight out of mind” is a very true phrase.  I don’t recall every moment of the past as I live each day in the present, as most of us do.  Perhaps later in life when I am older, my mind might go in search of days past and reminisce over the times of my youth.  But at current, I really couldn’t remember the things or events in my life that happened so long ago.  That is, until… I opened up those boxes.

I guess I kept some old things.  Many items still in their same shape and some were covered in dust.  But no matter, touching each item was like a play button.  Memories from the past flashed in front of me all of a sudden, projected on an invisible movie screen, and I recall vividly, each moment, each feeling as I held each piece of memorabilia in my hands.  Kinda bitter sweet to relive certain memories. 

Some items brought back joy and happiness and others gave me these pangs of sadness, feelings of regret and pain.  But each held their significance and I struggled with what to do with the items.  Just throw away?  Yes?  No!  I couldn’t! Oh, but yes!  Just throw away!  You don’t need these old things!  Why would you?  So, a lot of them went into the trash.  I kept a few.

Some things I threw away:
-   This pair of hot pink curved metal earrings.  I remember wearing those with dress shirts and skirts.
-   Necklaces from Jamaica.
-   Random notebooks from school.
-   School awards and certificates.
-   Address books that had names, addresses, and phone numbers of people I barely remember anymore.

Things I kept:
-   Old journals.
-   Old pictures.

If you haven't seen the movie "Oblivion", you're missing out.  It's such a good movie.  Watched it twice already.  Going to find time to watch it again.  I'm also in love with the credit song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DP7oquUeV_0
