Seeing this worn out L card reminds me of seven years with @weareone.exo.
It symbolizes my long and tough journey as an EXO-L and also EXO's. I consider this L card as part of my identity, "Eri" is probably one of the best words to describe me. The 7-year journey wasn't that easy, my boys had been through a lot even before their debut up to the present. They faced a lot of challenges, and I as an EXO-L shared their struggles.
As a fan, I also have my own struggles. Number one is that I'm financially struggling 'cause I'm just a student 😂 I can't afford merchandise and tickets. I only have few albums that my cousin gave me as gifts. Shoutout to my cousin who's my fangirling buddy @mikalibunao
! We stream EXO's music videos, vote them in music shows, and watch their variety shows together.
And yeah, because I'm broke, it's a pain whenever EXO is having a concert here. I'm such a consistent #teambahay
eversince 😂 but despite that, I know it doesn't change the fact that I'm a certified Eri!
"The fans who can't see us are the special ones," Suho once said... but I know that time will come and I'll be able see them!
Another struggle is that our fandom, and even EXO themselves often get hates, but we're still strong together as the years pass by.
I've been judged (especially in my high school days) for liking EXO's music, some people call them such misognyst and racist names, and they take being a fan of EXO against me.
But you know what? Never don't mind about a thing~~ 😂
Although we've been through a lot of hardships, we always choose to look at the brighter side. EXO and EXO-Ls shared the positivities, joys, and victories together. We're happy when their hardwork pays off. Daesangs, music show wins, topping charts? Name it! But you know what makes EXO and EXO-Ls the happiest? Our relationship! Sounds cheesy but yeah, we're always together and that's a promise (Promise.mp3 plays in the background.) I'm such a lucky one and proud to be an Eri. I'm forever grateful to my friend @triciatan.ph
for introducing me to EXO...
And big thanks to @theripplesociety
