MIA Again…

3 Nov

Hello everyone! Long time no blog but school has been whipping me sore on my behind. Which is why I haven’t been blogging it’s been a while but I hope to get back into it since it’s HOLIDAY SEASON AGAIN!!!!

I’m pretty much excited for the school year I’m actually doing pretty well (pretty good in 2/5 classes) but today I’m going to show you some things and update since I haven’t been active in like two months (I think that’s the longest I went MIA). BTW, my usual camera has gone MIA as well… I’m thinking that my mom put it somewhere and promptly forgot where she put it.

Here are my textbooks for this semester ($700 worth):


Blue Binder contains Management Textbook they had a binder version of the text for like $40 cheaper.

As for 20 things before 20 never finished a lot of the items… sooo much to do!! But I heard that there is a website called 101 things for 1001 days. OMG!!! Sounds pretty exciting! 1001 days is (assuming that a year has 365 days) about 2 years and 7 months? So I’m going to start my list on this site http://dayzeroproject.com/. Feel free to check it out but blogging at least once a week for a year is on that list.

As for other things in my life I’m pretty much on a Christmas high right now sooo many Holiday makeup collections are coming out so I’ll do a post later on about which ones that interest me a lot.

A few of my Christmas items are up now:

 (spot the eyeball?)

My desk is as messy as ever… when am I ever going to study on it?

Oh that reminds me I should take you around my area of our new room (my brother’s old room) since we did move a while back. I don’t think I showed you where everything is. Before the year ends I will have something up for sure.

Did you know that they are having currently Puss in Boots as McDonald’s Happy Meal toys?

Hope this post isn’t too long to read but I hope that everyone is having a great day!

Hello again…

23 Apr

Hello everyone! Shocking that I have not posted for quite some time right. It’s scandalous!!

 

So I just wanted to post that I am back I just had a bunch of exams (back-to-back kind ugh) and my laptop was again compromised. It took a trip to:

Los Angeles with my sister. She needed it to write stuff and the entire time I was wishing I had a desktop computer (which I will get one… in Aug). Anyways, I hope to be posting at the regular scheduled time intervals of Mon, Wed, and Fri perhaps more since I don’t have school anymore (just one more exam on Tues). Hope everyone is having a good day and a great long weekend!

Chinese Food Commercial Project

30 Mar

Hello everyone! Today I thought I should share some photos from the time that I had to do a Chinese project. Part of the project was to have some commercials in it and I’m just going to share photos from the hamburger commercial. The burger used in this commercial was from A&W and had two patties… the two patties were important. Anyways enjoy to two photos.

Like my guy makeup? Lots of fun.

Beautiful Day

Mid-Autumn Festival

22 Sep

B2S a.k.a. Back 2 School

8 Sep

Don’t you just hate the dreaded moments of going back to school? I do and excuse me while I take down some notes from the board.

I’m in University 2nd year and if I thought things are going to be the same it ain’t so now that I am back at school hopefully there will be lots of fun things that will happen. 

So since it is the first week us University kids have… drumroll please

This year’s theme is Mario and Friends which is great I absolutely love it! But the activities this year are kinda lacking… not much that I want to go to but there is a movie on Friday night. It’s How to train your Dragon and it’s for FREE!! I am totally going since I have not much time and think movie theatres are expensive to go to.

More school posts will be up and my birthday is in 11 DAYS!! So exciting!

Helicoptor Parents

3 May

Ever heard that term? Just basically means over-protective parents and I’m sure lots of people have experienced them. Though I am no expert in this area I definately know that I have a VERY over-protective mom, my dad is also protective but he’s lenient (which is good… hooray!).

I feel like this type of issue has to come out as I am having those types of troubles at home and there is technically no one that I can talk to except the internet.

Either way, my story is that the karate group that I am affiliated with is hosting 5 Japanese guests who are great karate masters and I’m translating for them as I know Japanese. I am told that they are going to the shooting range to shoot guns at targets so I have to go because we don’t want our guests to shoot themselves. I tell my parents and my mom is totally against it mainly because it consists of the fact that I am a girl and that I’m going to go to a shooting range…

Back in the day when my brother started going to a Junior High school I felt like my parents abandoned me just to support my brother. Because of my brother who had to go to a far away high school my parents enrolled me in a new school. Not knowing anyone there, I was scared but my parents said that it would be okay… to be honest it was not okay. I was bullied but I didn’t let anyone know because I felt that if my parents knew they would yell at me for being a weak child and I felt like I had no allies to help me along the way. To forget that people were bullying me I got myself involved in many different things; patrol, office monitor, and the most important was karate.

For me, even though karate was hard the best part was not just doing well in it but knowing that I could leave everything at the door. Nothing could bother me for the two hour long class and because of that class I could totally forget all the bad things that were happening to me.

I basically owe most of my life to karate because it has shaped me into the person I am today by meeting all those wonderful people who helped me along the way. But the fact that my mother does not accept that I should affiliate any further with the club is ridiculous! Because she and my father was so concerned about my brother she forgets me and she does not see that she was NOT a good role model for me. Thus for me karate is very important and to ban me from helping out and contributing to the club that’s like banning me from going on the internet. Utterly impossible.

I’ve grown up a lot since those bullying days and it has made me a stronger person but words will still be able to hurt me. The saying that ‘Stick and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me’ is utterly untrue. Words hurt and once they are spoken they can never be taken back.

But seriously, does she have a point in being extremely protective of me going to a gun range just to translate for our guests? (I am NOT I repeat NOT touching a gun) If she didn’t care about me back then, why should she care now?

Here’s a link of a website article that I read through to help me after the hour long criticism speech from my mom. (Criticism speeches always make me question myself and makes me feel like dirt… not a fun feeling)
