Yes, I am a bleeder (old November 2011 post)

It is an old post from November 2011, which after editing a tiny bit on the original; it did not want to show up
Instead of trying to figure out my issue; I just decided to repost and be done with it.

Yes, I am a bleeder
I may be a normal girl
I might act like you
But I am not near like you
I am not the same as you
I am unable to be a normal, average woman
You will never understand me 

Yes, I am what is called a bleeder
This means I bleed internally
Which you would never understand
From an outside perspective
I cannot be like everyone else
I am not able to play sports
I am very limited on what I can do ¶

You have never seen me at my worst 
You may not ever want to see it
Because you might end up not understanding
Or maybe you will understand, but 
It's all in the eye of the beholder ¶

Either way, I am who I am 
I have accepted the fact that I am the person 
I strived to be the best I can and never give up 
I cannot change myself or my bleeding disorder
For anyone because I have accepted it
Nothing can change me or my way of thinking ¶

Yes, I am a bleeder, but it has been 
Very challenging to rise to others' expectations
Most of which I am not able to achieve or accomplish
No one has ever felt what it is like to 
Have a bleeding disorder, been through all the bleeds 
I have ever had and know the feeling of being left out ¶

I always had a hard time tying to
Accomplish or achieve my goals
But I find a way, stick to my strong willed
Determination and keep going until I finish 
I always do the best I can and to the best
Of my abilities and nothing can stop me ¶

I have been questioned about why I can't
Play sports, but I tell them I am a bleeder
Therefore, I have a tendency to bleed excessively
And have to infuse my factor right away 
Or I could potentially die from all the
Bleeding internally, it's not something 
You can see from the outside ¶. 

I have always gotten bruises and most of
Those bruises come with hematomas underneath
It is not easy to explain how I got the bruise
Or saying I bruise easily because I am a bleeder
One day you will understand 
What it is like to be in my shoes ¶

Understand what I go through each and 
Every day of my life
See everything I go through from my eyes
But until that day, letting the pieces fall 
In place is all there is to do ¶

I cannot change my own bleeding disorder
I can live with and accept it as is
Or I can let it keep me down
And never accomplish anything in life
I have overcome that obstacle and will
Stay above it the rest of my life
No matter what anyone else says ¶

update (?)

Sorry, it has been a very long time since I last updated.

So it is almost 5 years since I started learning Korean and about Korea itself.
I haven't been able to study Korean for about 2 years, but will be added again soon.
Although I do watch a ton of Korean dramas and incredibly addicted. lol
My favorite genre is saeguk or in English; historical or time period dramas.

I mostly listen to Korean music or drama soundtracks.
It is very very rare that I will stray outside my comfort zone and listen to other music.
Occasionally I will listen to Pentatonix, Peter Hollens, Lindsey Stirling or one of my many playlists.
I normally listen to whatever my mood is at the time, but sometimes might just randomly pick a playlist and not really care what it is.

Otherwise, I am pretty active and busy in real life, which is why I never had time to update.
I prefer being busy than bored out of my mind; it feels better to stay occupied.
There's always a few ongoing projects or catching up on the neverending reading list.

Loom Knitting
Recipe Books (for friends)
Writing (getting back into it)

My Thanksgiving Baking Project! :)

 This is a works of life post, a non-poetic one.

I love to bake and my contribution for thanksgiving this year was cookies. :)
I made 2 different types of cookies except I do not HAVE a sweet tooth at all. I never liked sweets as a kid and really don't even now as an adult. I will eat like 5-6 mini reese's peanut butter cups or a small candy of some sort every once in a great while, meaning maybe every 4-6 months. I am very conscious about my teeth and brush them roughly 5 times a day. I have never had a cavity and I do not want to get one. I did not even eat a sample of either cookie.

I love the smell of the baking cookies; it gives a very homey and holiday smell to my senses. I have always loved to cook and bake since I was a kid; it is one of my favorite hobbies. 

These dark ones are called Double Chocolate Chunk Mint Cookies; they have unsweetened cocoa powder, 6 oz (6 squares) of semi-sweet baking chocolate, and a little peppermint extract. They look burnt, but it's just the chocolate in them. :)

These ones are Soft Snickerdoodle cookies. I found a recipe that does not use any shortening in the dough.
Before they are baked, these cookies are dipped and rolled in a sugar-cinnamon coating.
