    YouTube algorithm decided to recommend me this video for the 3rd time in my life. The first time I watched this video was years ago. Probably early 2017. The 2nd time is probably around 2019.
    I cried hard for both times.

    and so, I decided to watch it again because it's been a while. And I told myself that I won't cry this time.
    Yes, I'm still shedding tears for the 3rd. Not as much as the 1st and 2nd, but still shedding tears.

    Could anyone explain to me why I'm still able to shed tears despite I knew what I'm watching?
    Shelter is probably the only short-music-video in my life that able to make me cry 3 times.
    Usually, those similar types of videos or music would only make me cry for the first time.
    It was hard to cry after the 1st experience. Even after a gap of 2 - 3 years.
    And so, what makes this video so different? :hmm:

    For those who haven't watch the video, you're missing out. Though, be warned that this video is quite heavy for the feeling. Make sure to watch this when there are nobody around you.

    Not sure I'll ever watch it a second time, the music was especially wrenching the time I watched it. I prefer to watch fluffy stuff these days, but it's an awesome video.

    She could've joined the other virtual personalities or survivors if she were given instructions on how to use her spacecraft and her machine simulation system.
