20 things before 20

18 May

Hello everyone! So I have a 20 things before 20 list which is a list I compiled of 20 things to do before I turn 20 this September (19 to be specific). I have some time before my birthday so this list is to help me go through things that I would never do if I didn’t have a timeline. So here is my list:

1. Finish my embroidery project.

2. Read Watchmen.

3. Buy an iPad 2… enough said

4. Go to Animethon 18 which is on Aug 5-7 this year. I will be planning to go for only one day I don’t think I can get off work that easily.

5. Finish Wa-loli Kuro outfit. I started this project 3 years ago and have never finished it better late then never right?

6. Obtain a mushroom farm… kinda like this:

7. Pay mum & dad $100 from my first paycheck as well as my brother $100 (cuz I owe him for all the lunches he’s treated me to) and for my little sister $40 (she complains that she doesn’t have money all the time). Hopefully this one will be soon. ^-^

8. Get a library card… since I’m an adult I have to go get my own library card but I’ve just been lazy to go get one… I will get one though.

9. Start Youtube videos… something I’ve been wanting to do since last year but never had courage or time to make videos and put it up. I will do it for sure!!

10. Determine birthday present wishlist. I know that the iPad is on this list for a reason…

11. Determine 2 year financial plan. Since I plan to go to Japan in the upcoming 2 years I have to plan to make sure that I have enough money while travelling and such. Thus this plan… it’s going to take a lot of brain power that’s why I keep putting it aside.

12. Stay a neat freak… yeah this photo really shows how much I need to stay a neat freak.

13. Continue to study Japanese and Chinese. This one I won’t be doing anytime soon until school starts in September. I will be attending a Sat language class in Sept.

14. Try out a different martial arts even if it’s just one class I would like to try something different. Perhaps kung fu?

15. Attemp yoga/pilates. I would really like to try this but I don’t have much money to spend it on a class (financial plan) so I will learn from a book/video from the library (need library card) or Youtube is a great resource as well.

16. Try food from Sbarro, Thai Express, and Taco Bell. I just want to get out of my usual going to McDonalds or Subway to eat. I never try different foods so here are three places great to try out my taste palette.

17. Go to a spa. I have never gone to a beauty salon so I would really like to go to one. Perhaps from Eveline Charles.

18. Go on a staycation. I am planning with my brother and sister that we should go to the car museum in Wetaskiwin and possibly the Aviation museum in Alberta. But other things for a staycation is attending Capital X (summer amusement park) and Heritage festival (showcasing different cultures from different countries) as well as Animethon of course.

19. Play Spyro: Ripto’s Rage (PS) and finish Pokemon SoulSilver (DS). I have not finished these games and would really like to for sure.

20. Attempt to make curry flavoured popcorn. I heard about the elusive curry flavoured popcorn and since there is not a big chance to come across curry flavoured popcorn I might as well make it myself.

I will be updating every time I finish an item on the list and there is no set order to complete the list as long as the list is completely finished before I turn 20.

Snow in May?! And more?!

29 May

Yeah, crazy Alberta weather it has happened again!!!

So it is forcasted that it will rain/snow again tomorrow… makes me want to go RAWR!!!

This was dinner… pan-cooked pizza… yummm pepperoni…

Looking Forward

4 May

And life goes on… I like Alberta but not when this happens:

 My backyard…

 The front garden…

Yeah… it snowed in Edmonton today… and not just any kind of snow. It was the ‘let’s blind people, be really heavy so people can’t shovel me properly AND i’m going to be like hail and be really hard’ snow. Sometimes I wished I lived in a warm tropical climate so that I don’t have to shovel snow but it’s good training I suppose. At least this type of snow is great for making snowmen or yuki-daruma. ^_^

The plan for the next few days as I will be busy for the next few days cleaning and preparing to go to work and such:

Tuesday – Looking Forward + Confessional Short

Wednesday – Concept of Beauty 2 – Face

Thursday – 2L Water Challenge

Friday – Reaching You…

Rub my Tum Tum

9 Apr

I am going to talk about something UBER delicious… CUPCAKES!!!
I made some yesterday just for my Japanese class mainly due to our skit which was a reenactment of Food Network shows borrowing inspiration from Hell’s Kitchen, Iron Chef America and other similar cooking challenge shows.

Here’s what they look like:

As you can see a very well done cupcake if I do say so myself. Today has been a fun day but now it is time to study hard for finals. So not that many posts will be up for the next two to three weeks as I will be concentrating on my studies but I will attempt to try and update as best as I can.

The weather has been absolutely horrible lately… curse Alberta weather it’s like winter outside… there’s even snow on the ground!

Giggity. ^_^ Another blog… it’s been a while or seems like its been a while. Other than letting people know about the new Nintendo DSi XL coming out. There isn’t much going on today other than the fact that it snowed outside… can’t show you that because its all melted by now. I should start carrying my camera around once again.

But there is still a photo for today’s post.

Like the new layout?
