I redid my profile, too =DDD

Proooooooooofile

I'm sick and I'm bored and apparently that means I enjoy combo photoshop + staring at html code XD

My dad got me sick. Boo on him. Tomorrow is Nation Pancake Day so I'll be getting my free pancake on with my brother =DD

Still waiting to find out who will be playing at the Korea Times Music Festival. I heard that they may make an announcement next week. The anticipation is killing meeeeeeee (>.<)

Changed my layout a bit - new header and font colors, in honor of Big Bang's comeback ♥

Everyone around me has been sick for the past week or so and I guess it's my turn now (>.<) I really REALLY hate not being able to breathe out of my nose.

I feel like I often come off as boring or aloof to people who don't know me well and it hinders me from meeting new people or making new friends. I think I'm actually a pretty interesting person (or at least not boring), but I always end up internalizing so much of my thoughts and ideas that I feel like I come off as completely boring. I want to become a person who lets their personality shine through even to people I've just barely met, but I don't want to turn into someone I'm not or become an overzealous tryhard.

Unfortunately I have no idea how to do this >.>

How I wish you could see the potential
The potential of you and me
It's like a book elegantly bound but
In a language that you can't read

Just yet
You gotta spend some time, love
You gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find love
I will possess your heart




Been in a bit of a lonely mood for no particular reason lately. The cold and winter tends to do this to me (>.<)

Classes start next week. I haven't registered for the classes I want to take yet because the pre-requisites for both are "eligibility for English 100," which I'm exempt from due to my AP test scores but the school I'm attending right now doesn't have those scores on record. Sooo that's what I'll be doing today. Hopefully my high school will still have my scores on record or else I have to pay and wait a week, meaning I can't register until classes actually start. I'm not so worried about the Literature & Philosophy class, but the creative writing class I want to take is already waitlisted so I'm going to try my luck at crashing that one.

Blargh...I've been so restless lately. Was sick for a few days over the weekend but thankfully got over that pretty quickly. Now it's just been hard for me to sleep *sigh* Last week I had a couple instances of sleeping, staying up for 2 days, sleeping, staying up for two days (>.<) At least I'm enjoying not doing anything before I get back to school =/

Ahhhhh I just found it!!

O!MS EP. 5!!! Finallyyyyyyyyy!! I was able to find subs for pretty much all the episodes after the Christmas special but for whatever reason this episode remained unsubbed (>.<) I think I'll still be waiting for the episodes to be uploaded by PikeYenny because the subs from the TV station are just so much better and more complete than what I've found from fan subbers. Yeee I love this show even though Minho is such a helpless derp ♥

Hope you all had a nice Christmas and New Year! I unfortunately didn't do anything interesting at all (>.<) The most exciting part of my holiday was that I got my GD&TOP album and SHINee wall calendar in the mail a couple days ago >.>

Aaaaand I finally found something that I can use to hang my 50+ posters!! The paint in my room is really lacquered and nothing I tried was ever able to hold up my posters without falling eventually and I didn't want to put tacks in them either. But I bought this putty stuff and it works!! So I'll be doing that for most of the day and maybe I'll post some pictures when I'm done ^^



I don't get this feeling very often, but this song makes me want to have a boyfriend (>.<)

Hope you all are having a good holiday season! Only two more days until Christmas and I only have one more gift to buy haha.

It's been raining nonstop here in southern California for the past week. This place is a desert and we can use all the rain we can get but this has definitely been the wettest year I've ever experienced and I've lived here my whole life. I just hope it lets up a bit so people can make all their flights. I've had a few friends stuck in airports already (>.<)

I'm done with this semester but don't have my grades yet. I'm pretty confident about my philosophy of religion final so I know I'll score pretty high on that.

I hope you all will have a wonderful holiday and have tolerable weather wherever you live! ♥

I will spend my entire life struggling with this mystery, even if there is no hope of ever resolving it, because this struggle is my nutrient and my consolation. Yes, my consolation, because I have grown accustomed to taking hope from desperation itself. And I don't need any lamebrains or dimwits to tell me that this is a paradox.

I cannot conceive of any educated person who does not have this preoccupation, and I expect very little from the opinions, and opinions are not the same as certainty, of those who are not interested in the problem of religion in its metaphysical aspect, and who only study it for its social or political aspect. I expect very little for the spiritual enrichment of humanity from those men or those people who, because of mental laziness, because of superficiality, because of their faith in science, or for whatever reason, distance themselves from the fundamental preoccupations of the heart. I don't expect anything from those who say: "You shouldn't think about that"; I expect even less from those who believe in a heaven and a hell like we believed in when we were children; and I expect nothing at all from those who declare with the certainty of a fool: "Those ideas are only fables or myths; when you die you are buried, and that's it." I only expect something from those who don't know, but are not resigned to it; from those who struggle without ceasing to find the truth, and base their entire life on the struggle itself, rather than on achieving a victory.

-Miguel de Unamuno



Working on my philosophy of religion final right now (>.<);

Ballad groups aren't really my thing but I thought I'd give S.M. The Ballad a try anyways because there's a lot of talent in the group. I really only started paying attention to them because of Jonghyun (even though he's my least favorite singer/member of SHINee) and also because I do really like Jay.

So with that said, OF COURSE my favorite song on the album is Kyuhyun's solo haha (>.<) The rest of the album is pretty decent but just not a style of music that I'm really into, but I LOVE 'Love Again' and have been repeating it over and over since I downloaded it a few days ago.



I got my take home final today. It looks like one of those things that don't seem so hard at first but will likely end up being like 3+ pages per question (>.<); Definitely not something I can leave for the night before like I'm naturally inclined to do.
