When there is something weird that happens to you, you may get the similar things the following days. When you comment something bad to other people, you might get what you do not like about them. When you expect something occur, then that thing can not show up. And when you do not expect it, it may turn to you...The reverse things always appear no matter where you are, no matter what you do. I have experienced these things many times. And I think you may get this at least one time in your life.

Language barriers are not a big problem at all between two persons if they were born to be together. But it does create barrier when you can not understand what the other says to you at all, even behind that sentence, the meaning is very simple and sweet " I like you". Smile

So what do u think? Share it!

Dear K,


I would not expect that you could find this profile or this blog somewhere else on Google. If you type “Sehne” at random, you may find me, yet, it would not happen because I know there is no any reason for you to do so. I’m writing here to a friend I know from a web. The one I could guess where he is studying in now. The one who was vey funny and thought I hated him so much. The one whose given name begins with an K but never told me his last name. K, you know that, even u told me ur last name, it didn’t matter because your last name would not make any special meaning for me, except for it indicated you clearer or I might remember you easier. If there is any special things behinds English last names, I would like to know, at least I would know the reason why you hid it. Are you a famous person? Hope that the answer is “ NO”. I have no idea but think so.


When you said you were from Boston, Massachusets state, I had no feeling. When I asked you where u did study in, I had no answer. When I guessed you were studying in MIT ( the only university I know from that state), you were surprised how I could know. Nah, you see, I don’t need you had to answer. I felt that when you were persuing the double degrees and one of them was about computer science. MIT’s student are all insane about computer or technical things. Lol.


You joined the exhange languages site to learn nothing ( as I think so) but had fun time with friends on summer holiday. I was happy when you breaked the ice with me and felt that I might cross your eyes! Nothing much special, but we were talking there like friends. And I admired more when you were learning double degrees at the young age. You are as old as me but you entered university earlier than me. It’s kind of the word people say “ little talented” or “ young genius”. And I bet you have bigger and smarter brain than mine just in studying field.


I hardly see that you come online except for couple of times. I always think that you were hard-working student or you appeared offline to me only. I will not wonder about either of these cases. Simply, I don’t  loose the image of you, image of an excellent student coming from the different world from mine. I always keep your words or ur image I created somewhere to encourage me in studying. If you were bad in some ways, let them be; if not, I will be proud of you.


I wish I could be like you, more responsible and could run away from distraction. Yet, I could not do it.


Hope you always fine no matter where you are.


Thank you for being my sample in life.

Have you guys watched the short film called "Signs" ? It just takes you about 12 minutes to watch from the beginning to the end but you will feel as if you had just spent 2 hours to watch it like usual when you take a DVD or come to cinema with friends. I'm not going to tell ya what this short film is all about because it is better for you to feel, understand and think by your own vision. It is not kind of non-verbal communication but it is all about it when the two persons use eyes contact, gesture, smiles,... to communicate with each other. You can see the language but cannot hear the sound. ( I do not mention the melody in the film). Even that language is just between 2 people apart from 2 small windows of the two separated buildings. You may think it seems to be close together but frankly in humorous way speaking, if you see the ending, they have to climb down thousands steps from each building and then across the street to meet. It is short distance in minds but long way to go. Maybe that was the reason why the film-makers call this "Signs" when there were only signs that help connect people.

It was surprising to hear that the girl was the person who was watching the guy first. From the beginning of the film, I always thought that this guy felt bored with his normal days. He tried to find the communication among people but it seemed to us that he was living outside the life. There was no sign to show audience that he was really the part of this company, this family, and more further this town. Try to imagine how terrible it is when you can breathe but cannot feel the lively life around you? The guy must have been the person who was looking for the sympathetic fist, but no....

The girl started first. That means in this small town, the guy was not the only person who felt bad about life in this way. We are not sure whether the girl was in the same situation as the guy was but we can surely say that there was one person who was always looking at you and feeling your feelings. The worst situation became the best one when the two soulmates could come together and share parts of lives. It began from the sudden look of the guy from this window to another one in the opposite building. And that look was replied by the girl as a magical thing. 

I really enjoy the action of the actor. He acted as if he was that guy in practice. Poor, humorous, sincere and lovely. There is no one speaking but we felt that we could hear the sounds of talks jumping out from words written in every A4 papers. Even the girl got promoted and moved to higher position ( in both literal and illiteral meanings ) she still gave to him the sign to prove her appearance at the peak time of his disappointing. " Give me a sign, it will tell me wherever you are and I will be there"...

Do not just believe in what is existing because the things you have not known are still be there and waiting for you once they are lit up as signs.

Check out this meaningful film on youtube 


Hope you guys enjoy it!
