A Dream of Mirrors

Also, vandaag schreef ik een verhaal in de trein, en hij is opzich best interessant dus voila:

I was shivering and the musty air was weighing down heavily upon me. Ifelt disoriented…how did I get here? I looked around but couldn’tmake anything out. My vision was blurred and I felt like I had to throwup. I could feel myself starting to panic..
"Don’t panic," a deep voice echoed from somewhere above me.
"Where am I?" I asked it in a weak, trembling voice.
No reply.
"Hello?" "hello..hello..hello"my voice echoed through the complete whiteness. I still couldn’t see athing. I couldn’t even see my own hands as I stretched them out infront of me.
"Where the hell am I?" I thought to myself.
"You’re here, of course."
The raspy voice took me by surprise and I fell down. To my surprisethough, I didn’t land. I kept falling and falling as if I had juststepped into a bottomless well. And all the while, the raspy voice kepttalking to me:
"Oh my, aren’t we the speedy one? Already on your way towards the end Isee? Well, I can’t say I’d mind, it’s been rather busy here of late. Noone even bothers to stop and think anymore, that’s why this place is soblurry. But you’ll get used to it soon enough."
I tried to talk back at it, scream at it even, but it was like my mouth had been stitched shut; I couldn’t utter a word.
"Yes, I know what you mean," said the voice, "but you didn’t have to beso spiteful about it. None of us want to be here you know, we just makethe best of it."
The voice paused.
"Ah, you’re here. Well, tahtah then."

In a split second my vision returned, just in time to see myselffalling head first onto a cold, damp stone floor. With a thud my bodyhit the ground, bones breaking with an indescribable sound. My bloodcovered the walls of the tiny cell, and spelled out the words "Who areyou?"
I was confused, and only after a few seconds I realised I was stillalive, even though my lifeless body was laying right in front of me.
"Who are you?" the deep, hollow voice echoed through the cell.
I looked around the place, desperately searching for a way out. Butthere was none. No door, no windows, just cold, damp bricks covered inmold.
My foot slipped on the wet floor and I fell on top of the dead bodythat was supposedly me. I freaked out, of course, but then I noticedthat the body, the dead me, was actually me. It wasn’t some kind offucked up trick the voices were playing on me, it was actuallyme. I saw it’s teeth, with fillings in the same places as mine, it’sears, with the same scar behind them, and I looked directly into it’slifeless eyes..it was like looking into a mirror, only the reflectionof me was dead.

In an instant, the walls of the cell fell away, revealing nothing butan ordinary bathroom mirror, the same one I had in my own bathroom. Ihesitantly walked up to it.
"WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING TO ME!?" My reflection yelled as I steppedin front of the mirror. My eyes were bloodshot and tears were rollingdown my cheeks. "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING? DO YOU THINK THIS IS SOMEKIND OF JOKE? You…You…MONSTER!"
My reflection was beating on the mirror with his fists, causing it to shake violently. "Answer me, you fucker!"
"Yes.." the same hollow voice that had greeted me into this worldbellowed from my very own throat, "this is all just a game. A game ofPretend."
The face of my reflection contorted into the most agonizing visage I had ever seen. "NO! LET ME OUT OF HERE! Please!"
"It’s too late for us." I answered in that horrible voice.
Then the mirror exploded and shards of glass cut my face. I brought myhand up to feel the wound..but there was no blood. And there was noface to touch….

Are you hyped for the #WinterOlympics yet?
Because the Korean government would really, really like you to be #hype!

I've never really been into the Olympics, except for that one time when the guy who was born in the same town I lived in (#GianniRomme) was raking in Gold Medals like it was one of those coin pusher games - and even then it was mostly because my school was making a big deal out of it.
As such, I'm not very interested in the Winter Olympics either, even though this is the first time I'd be able to attend the events myself and watch my country's athletes get burried in speed skating medals.

Still, I hope Korea will put on a show - and a performance - to be remembered for years to come.

Being a Starcraft fan in Korea feels a lot like what I'd imagine being a rich acquaintance of Ronaldo would feel like for a football fan - you get front row seats to all the major games, get to meet legends like Messi, Robben or Buffon (in our case, Byun, SoO or Stats) and get to ask for their signature pretty much whenever you want - all without paying a single penny.

The professional scene has been taking hit after hit since I started getting interested in it, and I'm afraid it'll never be the same as it once was, but I'm glad that in 2018, as well, I'll be able to enjoy some of the best e-Sports the world has to offer.

#WingsOfLiberty down, #HeartOfTheSwarm and #LegacyOfTheVoid to go.

이제 인스타로 새 책을 받을 수 있는 이벤트가 있어서 당연히 참여해야지~

In Korea, the past and the present are always living together in some sort of awkward balance.
Traditional norms, values and traditions clash with the influence of a rapidly modernizing and developing society; pride in one's roots compete with a constant need to move forward, and historical buildings vie for room to breathe in the middle of a metropolis.
I hope Korea manages to move forward without forgetting the things that make it unique.

Fuck you, Korea. I love you.
