Happy 8th Anniversary, BIGBANG! Wow. 8 years. It never crossed my mind that one day 5 talented artists, namely, Kwon Jiyong, Choi Seung Hyun, Kang Daesung, Dong Youngbae and Lee Seunghyun would become an important piece of my life. One day, I came across the Lollipop MV, then boom. You guys blew me away and my sanity started falling apart, as fast as the domino effect lmao. Anyway, I wanted to share something I’ve read in Thought Catalog:
"Fangirling is the process of giving a part of yourself to something, be it related to school, sports, books, or anything else that you may have a passion for. Fangirling is the unbridled excitement over one particular piece of entertainment or mastery. It is the ability to explore the extent of one comic book or football game without worrying about other tasks that need to be completed. It is the need to forget one’s self, and simply enjoy. Appreciate. Savor in. Devote a part of your life to. These are all synonyms for one thing. Not obsession, as Oxford would have us believe. These words are synonyms for love."
"That is the simplest way to describe the feeling of fangirling — to love something deeply. Unconditionally. At times, it feels akin to loving family and friends. But this is a unique love, because this love is one-sided. You give so much of yourself to this one thing, and receive nothing in return. And while most one-sided loves are tragic, this one is comforting and refreshing. We never want to stop giving in to this one-sided love, even though we may have our hearts broken time and time again. We are always able to return to that baseball field or book series and give it another try. And it will always feel the same way — sweet and satisfying."
Enough said, right? Thank you, BIGBANG, for the love and inspiration. For the motivation, though you aren’t physically there for me, but through your music, I got through a lot of obstacles and problems in my life. I hope that you won’t feel sad everytime the world looks down on you because when you turn back, us VIPs will always be here for you. I don’t think any other group can replace your number one spot in my heart because I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you. I love you from the depths of my heart! More years to come! Fighthing, BIGBANG!
