"Say Something" [Apr. 29th, 2015|10:43 pm]
jagged_steel

I feel as though I lost something irreplaceable even when I know that it wasn't going to work out.  And I pushed him away and I let him go.

And these lyrics perfectly express his sentiment.

Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'll be the one, if you want me to
Anywhere, I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you

And I am feeling so small
It was over my head

I know nothing at all

And I will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl


Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
Anywhere, I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you


And I will swallow my pride
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye


Say something, I'm giving up on you
And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
And anywhere, I would've followed you


Say something, I'm giving up on you

Say something, I'm giving up on you
Say something

You Are Steady



You hold yourself accountable for your actions. In the end, you have to live with yourself.

You need your alone time to introspect and recharge. Being around other people can be draining for you.



You are a slow and critical thinker. You think through every step carefully.

You are efficient and precise. You like to get down to business.

"There are lives at stake, Sherlock. Actual human lives. Just, just so I know, do you care about that at all?"
"Will caring about them help save them?"
"Nope"
"Then I'll continue not to make that mistake."
"You find that easy, do you?"
"Yes, very. Is that news to you?"
"No. No."
"I've disappointed you."
"That's good. That's a good deduction, yeah."
"Don't make people into heroes, John. Heroes don't exist. And if they did, I wouldn't be one of them."
Finally got around to watching "Sherlock."  And, I adore this exchange.  Not just because of Sherlock's frankness, but for reasons that are my own.

Hm....  this could potentially be bad... 

Hungry to the point that I feel physically ill.  At least, I think it's hunger...

So...

I woke up this morning, briefly, around 7 AM-ish, and dozed back off.  Woke up an hour later, made breakfast and went to turn on CCTV while I ate, and I catch the last minute of, like, a mini-documentary on Lu Chen.  I am so sad~  It claims that the next part will be airing tomorrow at the same time, but I can't believe I missed it.  :(  

Note to self:  Flip on TV while _making_ breakfast next time.  T.T

So...

BlingJing from Gold Typhoon and TTV put together a video compilation of "What Jing Said" and minchong92, the administrator at Jing's Castle (Zhang Yun Jing International Forum), posted the Chinese subtitles and English translations, and . . .. it's beautiful.  It's real.  It's almost inspiring.

張芸京怎麼說…… BlingJing製作
What Zhang Yun Jing has to say…. Produced by BlingJing

我有些許的強迫症,
I have compulsive disorders about some things,

三不五時的多愁善感,
I get sentimental at random times,

沉醉在惆悵的情緒裡。
Entirely immersing myself in a melancholy mood,

我小時後其實比較喜歡畫畫,
When I was small, I actually liked drawing better,

想被看見,又不想被看見,
Wanting to be seen and at the same time not wanting to be seen,

矛盾的想要與眾不同,
Contradicting myself by wanting to stand out,

又想享受平凡的輕鬆。
But at the same time wishing to plainly go through no stress,

對我最有影響的專輯:
The album that has influenced me the most:
Jason Marz的《Mr.A-Z》
Jason Mraz’s [Mr. A to Z]

某些時候挑一條最難走的路,
At some times I choose to take the hardest path,

雖然路途艱辛,卻覺得是實在活著,
Even though the process is difficult, I feel that this is the real way to live

不要在意過程,問問自己能否改變結果。
Not worrying about the process, instead asking myself if I can change the end result.

我為什麼存在這舞台,用音樂決勝負!
Why do I exist on this stage, to use music to determine the final result!

心是滿的,就不在乎身旁是空的,
If my heart is full, then I don’t care if there’s no one by my side,

我整個人生都要轟轟烈烈。
My entire life has to be vivid, full of life.

對自己喜歡的東西沒有中間值,
There’s no middle ground when it comes to what I like,

不是零,就是衝,
It’s not zero, it’s going all the way,

我是屬於越難過,越要感受悲情的那種人,
I’m the type of person where I need more pain, more sadness,

撞的頭破血流,受傷了,才會覺得痛快,
Once my head strikes something and starts bleeding, then I can feel relieved,

讓我相信,至少我還有感覺,
Convincing myself that at least I can feel,

我還知道,什麼是難過、什麼是悲傷,
I still know what it feels to hurt, what it feels to be sad,

總比什麼都沒感覺好,
It’s better than not feeling anything at all,

我沒有辦法忍受平淡這件事。
I cannot endure dullness in any way.

從心裡唱出的好歌,一遍又一遍的聆聽,
Singing a good song from my heart, listening to it again and again,

每天入睡前播放我最喜歡的音樂伴睡,
Everyday before sleeping, I put on my favorite music to accompany me,

好像有好多音樂人在我耳邊哄著我入睡,
It’s as if a lot of musicians are at my ear, calling me into sleep,

我允許看不見,我無法聽不見,
I can be blind, but in no way can I not hear,

可以剝奪我的生命,但不能剝奪我的聽覺,
You can shorten my life, but you can’t cut my sense of hearing,

樂觀的活著是一件很美好的事情。
Positively living out life is a very beautiful thing.

我還是我,一直都不曾被誰改變,
I am still me, and will never be changed by someone else,

心魔永遠存在,必須隨時提領足夠的勇氣去對抗……
Emotional struggles are always existent, but I always have to be brave enough to face them…

我好像從來都不是真的為「自己」而活的人。
I don’t think I’ve ever been someone to live for myself.

為什麼會想要改變我呢?我不懂……
Why do you want to change me? I don’t understand…..

我是越衝撞越感到痛快的人,
The more I collide, the more I feel relieved,

一定把門衝破為止,
I have to rush into the door until it breaks open,

無論愛情或理想,越難就越不放手。
No matter if it’s love or dreams, the harder it is, the more I don’t want to let go.

很多陌生人不了解你,卻又評論你。
A lot of strangers don’t understand you, but they still judge you.

每一首豁出去的表演,你們感受到了嗎?
In every song I give my best performance, do you guys feel that?

我真的好愛站在舞台上表演,
I really love standing on this stage and performing,

我真的好愛音樂,
I really love music,

即使我很沒有自信的用自己的方式愛著。
And so I really don’t have confidence in using my own way to love.

我不會去想自己要有什麼特質被大家認同,
I won’t go and think about what special characteristic I have that makes everyone identify with,

我就是踏實地作自己該作的事情,
I’m just stepping into what I think I should do,
努力把歌唱好,只要實力是穩紮穩打,
Singing the song well with my best effort, using my strengths to advance steadily

別人就會肯定妳。
Then others will approve of you.

有音樂陪伴的日子,我不孤獨,
With music accompanying me, I’m not lonely,

不知道誰跟我一樣被音樂拯救。
I don’t know who has been saved by music just like I have been,

我對過度敗金的人感到很質疑。
I question those who succumb to material things.

細膩是感性的一部分,但我否定細膩=感性。
Being sensitive/meticulous is part of emotion, but I don’t think sensitivity equals emotion.

先倒下投降的人,不會成功,
Those who surrender won’t succeed,

還不到我投降的時候,
It’s still not the time for me to surrender,

我要記住比賽時能量最滿的感覺。
I want to remember the time during Super Idol when I had the feeling that my capabilities were used to the max.


阿京 = chao shuai
