Epic love stories and relationships as depicted in pop culture, though it rarely turns out like that in real life.
The Royal Family is Obsolete
The royal family is obsolete. There. I said it. And this is coming from a die-hard Anglophile. In my humble opinion, the British monarchy is a romanticized relic that no longer holds relevance in our modern world. Its lingering presence is an offence to those who suffered cultural monopolization at the hands of British colonizers. Simply put, the British monarchy is an outdated institution that should have been dismantled ages ago.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Culture in Classical Literature

His existing more than 600 poems are about politics, philosophy, feelings of friends and lovers, rural scenery, folk customs, daily life, reading experience, and the scope of subject matter, almost reaching the point where no matter, no intention, no words are allowed. Among them, the most interesting one is Man Tingfang, a poem written by him under the name of medicine. Meditation at night ",written to his long-lost wife, expresses his feelings of lovesickness:" The mica screen opens, the pearl curtain closes, and the wind blows away the agarwood. Leave the feeling depressed, the golden coat weaves the sulfur, the cypress shadows and the cassia twigs cross each other, calmly rise, and make a mercury pond. Even glancing over Pinellia ternata, it's cool through mint petticoats. A Uncaria last month, on an ordinary mountain night, dreamed of staying in the battlefield.

People who like to dream, remember not to be dominated by dreams; Good at planning, remember that dream can not reach the goal; For people with a can-do spirit, remember that choosing the right direction is more important than working hard. Do not think that by building a city you will settle down; Do not think that if you sow a seed you will reap a harvest; Do not think that by reaching the summit you can conquer; Don't think that by gagging people, all you hear is praise! Take yourself as a tree, then there is always the wind blow down the sorrow; Treat yourself as a seedling, then you will always enjoy the sun and rain. Green, then grow; When ripe, it rots! Life should pursue four dimensions: width, depth, heat, speed; Work to form five dynamic personality: active, action, vivid, driven, moved; Life must be clear about a concept: only by shortening the days and months of success can we extend the time of enjoyment! Everyone has two doors: one is home, the place of growth; One is the heart gate, the place of success. If you drive out the little man in the door, you wake up the giant in your heart! The eyebrows that grow first are not as long as the beards that grow later; The first born ear is not as long as the last born horn. Age is not the age of wisdom, excellence is not senior, the latecomer often comes first. It's not that the streets are expensive, but that you have no money in your pocket. It's not that you don't have money in your pocket, it's that you don't find opportunities to make money. It's not that you don't have the opportunity to make money, it's that you don't have the idea of getting rich in your head! It also means that you have no intention of making money yourself. When you hold on to something, it may be the only thing you will always have, and if you let go, other options open up. Old ideas do not give up, new ideas are difficult to produce! Looking in the mirror eight times a day does not equal beauty; Empty talk nine times a day does not make a man of action. He who is good at boasting is wearing an open gauze garment!

If you want to change others, change yourself first! There are many difficulties in the world, but there are two hardest things: one is to take money from other people's pockets and put it in your own pocket. The other is to put your ideas in other people's heads! Doubt is the beginning of pain, doubt is the beginning of happiness. Doubt is ok, more important, and its long time of doubt, as a short time to prove! With the soul to hit fate, with ideas beyond the dream. It's not what you do now that matters, it's what you do in the future. In order to change the future fate, first change the present concept! People without foresight, there will be near worry, worry is not far away, the worry will come. For many misfortunes are hidden, and begin in ignorance. The wise avoid in invisible, Ming foresight in not sprout! The most difficult to open is the heart door, the most difficult to walk is the heart road, the most sad bridge is the heart bridge, the most difficult to adjust is the state of mind. The hardest task in the world is to transform one's inner world! True love is acceptance, not tolerance. Support, not dominance; Sympathy, not inquiry; True love is thanks and apologies. Be considerate and understanding. To admit mistakes, or correction; True love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction. Love is not finding a perfect person. Instead, learn to appreciate an imperfect person with perfect eyes. In life, some people come and go, some people come and go, some people come and go, some people come and go, some people come and go, some people come and go, some people come and go. Maybe we meet at the end of two roads, walk for a while, and say goodbye at the next fork in the road. In any case, will inevitably come to an end of sadness.

I tried to be a hipster because i thought pop culture could disrupt moral values
I recently bought a pair of jeans from a cool looking shop downtown. The brand is ThreadLab, the design is pretty nice, fit me well. I am not sure if i could get used to wearing them in public but you know what, its fine. I just bought something that i really like, because it looks good to my eyes so why should i care if people would like it too or not.
Dear Kylie Jenner, I simply do not care.
I. The Infatuation/ The Following I have never been the best at understanding and participating in social media. I can remember exactly what it was like when Instagram first started getting popular. I was in middle school, and everyone was just obsessed. Posting pictures daily, throwback Thursdays, women crush Wednesdays, man crush Mondays, the list of obnoxious hashtags goes on and on. Anyone who was popular had an Instagram and AT LEAST 50-100 followers. It was nauseating. Seeing my fellow middle schoolers running around all day posing for pictures with the incessant begging, "Don't forget to tag me!" The constant gossip of who posted this, and oh my god did you see what he commented? And don't even get me started on all the couples that had each other's names in their bios. Most of the girls in my grade would list off their top best friends at the moment in their bios as well. I truly hated it all. Because I didn't quite fit in. I never felt as though I did. I wasn't pretty enough to take pictures of myself to post, I didn't have enough friends to take pictures with and tag them to start a bigger following, no boys liked me so I could put their name in my bio, and I definitely didn't have enough followers to matter. It hurt. I remember it genuinely hurt to know I wasn't succeeding at social media like everyone else was. I was embarrassed and ashamed. It was like I was being magnified as the outcast. I tried to beat everyone else to the punch. I deleted my Instagram on several different occasions, accepting defeat, and when people in my grade would look at me in confusion asking why, I would say something nonchalant like, "Oh, I just don't really like it, it's pretty dumb if you think about it." Sometimes, for a few seconds, after I laid that claim, they would look at me and say, "Yeah you're right it is pretty pointless." It was a sweet few seconds of validation each time, but then they would go back to scrolling, liking, and commenting on those pointless posts. As I got older, and as I felt prettier and more liked, I gave into Instagram again, so as to try and fit in again. I had more friends that would post about me, I had better pictures of myself that people liked, and it felt like I was somewhat successful at fitting in with my friends on the platform. At one point, I even made my account public instead of private, so that I could maybe one day beat my goal of 1,000 followers. I was following so many strangers that I had never met in real life, but I had heard of them, or I thought they were cool. I started following so many celebrities because that's what everyone does. Everyone follows their favorite celebrities, well because they are famous, duh. And obviously, I want to know how gorgeous they look today, and what clothes they're wearing, and what I should make myself look like, so I can be like them, obviously. Suddenly, I no longer recognized the people on my feed. I slowly stopped posting at all, but I was checking my feed more frequently than ever. When I did post pictures, It was an event. First, I had to get the perfect face of makeup, the perfect hair, the perfect outfit, the perfect pose, and the perfect picture. That alone took up the entire day. Secondly, I had to find the right layout. Should I do just one picture? Should I do multiple? Should I orient them sideways so it's more trendy? Should I use a filter? What the hell is my caption going to be? Finally, I would stare at my phone, the photos themselves, for hours. Slowly gathering the courage to post the pictures, and then chickening out again. If I did end up posting something, I would immediately throw my phone across the room and occupy myself with something for at least ten minutes, so as to not obsess over how many likes, or lack thereof, I was getting. There was always a 50/50 chance of me looking at the pictures again, feeling incredibly ugly, and deleting the post entirely. It was an exhausting process, one that I couldn't keep up with. Hence my stopping of posting.
Can pop culture be important?
Pop culture is incredibly important. While it's a source of entertainment, it has also led to many social movements and spawned life-changing ideas. Why? Because pop culture is everywhere. Pop culture is not only a form of entertainment; it shapes what we buy, how we dress and even our language.
At some point during the high Spears era – somewhere between “I’m A Slave 4 U” and it’s Britney, bitch – a former good Judy introduced a term to my vernacular that I use to this very day.
Just a small look into a world that can really suck you in if you aren’t too carful! Always expect the unexpected when it comes to shoes and what people do to get em!
Nostalgia Isn't What it Used to Be
Remember when remembering created a warm fuzzy feeling? Well, forget about it. In the future, people will view the past, AKA now, as an encrypted memory card not worth decoding.
Let us take a trip back in time to 1998, the year of Fat Boy Slim’s The Rockafella Skank, Adam Sandler’s The Waterboy and arguably the greatest FIFA game of all time. It was also the year that saw the debut of one of my most cherished childhood TV shows, it is hard to believe how much time has passed since then.
The Healing Way of Contemporary Young People: Pastoral Aesthetics
Just a piece of gingham, a piece of green grass, some scattered sunlight, a long floral dress, and a bunch of red wine, fruits and baguettes placed at random, it is like going to Paris, France.
