'You hang onto your pain like it means something, like it's worth something. Well, let me tell you—it's not worth shit. Let it go. Infinite possibilities and all he can do is whine.'

'Well, what am I supposed to do?'

'What do you think? You can do anything, you lucky bastard—you're alive! What's a little pain compared to that?'

'It can't be that simple.'

'What if it is?'

Mao: “Mama, how’d I do?”

A repayment that reached the heavens.

Asada Mao (23, Chukyo University) received a total of 198.22 points, resulting in 6th place. From her 16th place short program, she came back with her best ever performance. Landing her first successful triple axel of the season, she cleared her personal best with a score of 142.71 points and shone on the grand stage. It’s been four years since she shed those vexing tears over her silver medal finish at the Vancouver Olympics. She lost her mother, Kyoko-san, and the promise she fought for concluded with tears of happiness.

"Mama, how did I do?"

I’m not the one who looks up to many people.. When I was a kid, every time I idolized someone, soon I would find some mean bones in them which I just couldn’t accept. But Mao has no mean bone in her. I’m a cynical bitch and I can spot that. She looks like a traditional demured elegant Japanese princess but she has a monopoly on will like no one else. In whatever we decide to pursue, it’s actually a good thing to be obsessed about your trade so that all you want is to master it and push yourself further. Mao can soar high.

The most inspiring skate of the night.

Amazing. That footwork and choreo sequence! Wow.

tsk tsk. I don’t get why people have to romanticize paper books and bring down ebooks. It’s like quatifying whether elevator or stairs are better. I love the tangible feel when I hold a paper book in my hands but I don’t deny the convenience and economy of the ebooks. What matters is what you learn from a book. 

"All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."

Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina (via observando)

I’m finally old enough to understand this. It hit me to the core. Why can’t I have a normal person so that I can be genuinely happy about my parents’ 30th birthday anniversary or something? Or is every family supposed to be dysfunctional in some senses, unless you’re too naive to see through that?
