PLZ DISREGARD ANY ERRORS. :D
けけけ...こんにちは! 私は 日本語が 下手くそ ですが、読んで ください! 漢字を ぜんぜん 知りませんが、コンピュターは 私を たすけて 貰います。:3

ビデオを 見ましょう!


DBSKの 最近の インタービューので、これは 一番 好き です! Subtitles が ない ですが、すこし 分かります。 英語で:

Basically, they're asked what the best Japanese food is, and they all have to write the same answer using the exact same characters. And man is it satisfying (in a petty way) to know that, even though the boys converse in Japanese 10000000000x better than I do, they still suck at writing it. I might not be able to hold a conversation for more than two minutes, but AT LEAST I CAN SPELL CURRY!!

*ahem* Anyway... I love Junsu's various "I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M DOING" faces. And Yunho's random 「ほんまに??」 And Jaejoong half-whispers the rules of the game because he's ちょう へん like that.

。。。ジェジュンは きれい ですねえ~。 はい、そうです。

。。。。。。じゃあ また ねえ! *runs*

EDIT: I WOULD type in Korean, but the keys are wired up really oddly... for some reason, the S button prompts the ni yeun character. (Which is basically an N, and thus makes no sense. o_O)

IT HAPPENED. (AGAIN.)
Recently posted on the UFOtown website:

Fangirl: Oppa, how about a hot night with me?
Jaejoong: I have already promised with Yunho!!

WTF. WTF @ the question and WTFx2 @ the response. I AM TELLING YOU PEOPLE, QUESTIONS IS REAL. One day we will all know the truth. ONE DAY.

....And speaking of my fic. I am seriously wondering whether my RPS can somehow pass off as original fic, if there were to be such a category in VV. Yes, I really am that shameless.

And in the midst of all the fanfic talk on here, I also wonder why people still go to fanfiction.net and then complain about how most fic is horribly written. Ummm, maybe the reason why you encounter so much badfic is because YOU GO ON FF.NET. That's like complaining about the cold when standing out in the snow in shorts and a tee. If you want to find good fic without wading through truckloads of mediocrity/flat-out crap, then The Pit of Voles would be a good place to avoid.



On a more serious note, my first tutoring session with my little cousin was today. I found out that she actually doesn't have so much a reading problem (she stumbles over some words, but I think that's pretty normal for developing readers) as she does a math problem... which wasn't what I had in mind, but I guess I could work with it. What made it difficult is that my cousin is somewhat annoyingly adverse towards doing work she finds difficult; I even caught her trying to lie her way out of doing complicated multiplication. (But thankfully, I am the master at this so it does not work on me. :P)

I'm also wondering whether I could somehow get service learning hours for doing this. (BECAUSE I AM DESPERATE.) I've heard that doing regular tutoring around my school counts as service learning, so I think it would be reasonable to request for this to count towards my hours too, yes? :D?

EDIT: YE GADS, SOMEONE FORCE ME TO FINISH MY PSYCH PROJECT. I'M SO SCREWWWWWWWWWWWWED. *distracted by The Oscars!*

EDIT #2: No, really, The Oscars are REALLY distracting. The girl from Juno, dudes. THE GIRL FROM JUNO.

I am a Lit. geek & Cirque
Regarding that bit of news on the main page that I'm assuming most have seen by now... anyone have any Claymore fic ideas? (Teresa-centric, preferably.) Or random prompts or whatever else anyone throws at me, article/features included because I'm pathetically dry on ideas at the moment. (EDIT: And if mature-rated fics get the ok, the incredibly juvenile side of me wants to write gag smut just for shits and giggles. :3)

And because all this talk of fandom essay writing has got me in my geeky writer's mode, one of those little anecdotal experiences I had in Lang class yesterday; my group was supposed to be analyzing animal-related imagery used in a chapter of our reading, when a classmate asked:

Her: I really don't know what to write. I mean, what are animals supposed to symbolize?
Me: ...Ummm, nothing? Animals are animals. ^^;;

A couple years back, I remember reading a poem in which the writer/teacher accused his students of trying to "beat a confession" out of poetry, though I think that applies just as well to how most people approach prose analysis. I think perhaps some students think about Literature too logically, as if literary analysis and symbolism in particular works the same way a mathematical formula would. (ex. rain = rebirth, fire = passion, mx + b = y, etc.) When in reality, those "formulas" are more like really flimsy guidelines that change depending on the context they're used in. I don't know, I guess I find it... intriguing? Endearing? That people think of symbolism and literature in general in such a linear way.

[/GEEKY LIT CRAP]

(Oh, and I had one of those brilliant moments in Japanese class today where I realized that I know more Japanese than I think. And it involved my old Psych teacher conversing in Japanese and saying "hazukashii" more often than a moe-esque high school girl.)

I'm contemplating whether or not I should beg my dad to blow a couple hundred bucks buying tickets to see the latest Cirque du Soleil production coming to Chicago in June. On one hand, I'm already going to be spending bucketloads of money in preparation for dorm life and all that, and on the other...


...That TOTALLY looks worth blowing a couple hundred bucks on. CONTORTIONISTS!!!

Over a week since I first found this and I'm still laughing:


.............


Okay so that screencap is old as all hell, BUT IT STILL SO TRAGIC. WHY YUNHO WHY. First ghetto Engrish, and now this! YOU LOOK LIKE A GORILLA. (BUT STILL ILU, YUNHO BB. SRS. <33)

Really though, you have to admit. That is one bad hairdo. It's as if their stylists say to themselves, "Let's take this group of perfectly attractive young men and make them look as FUGLY as possible."





One more day and this hellish school week is finally over! I still have one more project to due over the weekend for Psych, but after that, I can finally SLEEP again! I haven't even had time to read fic throughout the past few days omg.

And by the way? I still hate winter. WHY ISN'T IT OVER YET.

EDIT: O___________O

I volunteered to tutor my little cousin on the occasional weekend, since she's been having trouble learning how to read the past couple years. And I really do want to help, but I didn't think they'd respond so fast! They already want me to start this weekend!

GAH, WHAT AM I GOING TO DO. I've never taught anyone before, not at the level of something this big and important! T_______T

Changmin's b-day project (a.k.a. THE THINGS I DO FOR THESE BOYS)

Click the pic to see the rest. :3

...Now to make up for three lost hours of homework time. *dies* x____x

Either all this is funny or I'm just really easily amused.


BUT BEFORE THE LULZ: I really like this song, probably the most out of all the boys' quasi-solos so far. The lyrics are 50% ghetto Engrish. (But it's not like that's unusual with Yunho anyway. :P) I LOVE that he spells out T-O-H-O-S-H-I-N-K-I in the intro. And then says "make me PIE high." And apparently something is SHINY SHINY. Yeah I really don't know wtf that's all supposed to mean, but umm... at least Yunho is pretty. Yes.

ANYWAY, onto Changmin's b-day plans! I made a request for pics of Changmin's best/funniest/most interesting facial expressions for a thing that I'm planning to do, and got some really cute/hilarious stuff:


ninja!Yoochun ilusm *O*~


HIS EYES ARE LITERALLY LIKE >_<






omg. He looks like he's thirteen. xDD




That last one made me LOL so hard that I was literally LMAOing. Oh Min. So awkward around girls despite being, like, one of the straightest ones in the group. xDDD

And for the sake of comparison:


......And to think that Min is the normal one of the group. xDDD

oh dear god. (a.k.a. VDay post, RPS style :P)



*FACEPALM*

Why do you do this to us, YunJae? Why. Our fragile, fangirly hearts can't take it. :((




Crap transition (honestly, why do I even bother?), but happy Valentine's day everyone!

I know that there are tons of people out there who hate the commercialism of this "Hallmark" holiday and all that. I probably would have passively agreed a year ago, but now I think I've learned to mostly embrace it. Because in the end, this holiday is just an opportunity (albeit a corporate-driven one) to show people that you care about them, especially if you're the type who doesn't express it often enough. And who says that Valentine's needs to be so superficial? The little presents I received (from friends) were both homemade and completely unexpected--which I think made it that much more meaningful.

And to be completely honest? I think a lot of people just use VDay as an excuse to hate people who are currently in relationships... which isn't healthy behavior in the first place.

...Says the girl who was on the verge of bitching about Christmas a couple months ago. But hey. It's all about perspective, right? :3

Because I'm desperate to keep myself from doing this financial aid crap:
God, the expression on your face. Jaejoong turned to him and laughed again, eyes squinting cutely as he did. You look like like a scared puppy. When Jaejoongs laughter died down to soft giggles, he smiled at the boy next to him, mouth shamelessly uncovered, and for a breathless second, Yunho thought that his smile was really really pretty. So much so that he almost didnt mind feeling so ridiculous.

You should really do that more often. Yunho tried to sound casual, anxious to distract the other boy from the previous topic.

Do what more often?

Laugh. Without doing this. Yunho let his hand hover over his mouth and did his best to mimic the happy squints of Jaejoongs eyes.

Jaejoongs hand shot up to his lips, as if he had only just been made aware of his smiles exposure. But my teeth are crooked.

Yunho scoffed and held back the sudden impulse to tear Jaejoongs hand away from his face. Are you kidding? Your teeth arent nearly as crooked as mine. Yours are barely noticeable, whereas the first thing anyone sees with me is Yunho instantly regretted his words when he noticed Jaejoong now staring fixedly at his teeth. Please stop looking at them or else Ill have to start covering my mouth too.

OKAY, BELL. STOP WRITING FIC AND JUST DO THE FAFSA ALREADY. GET IT OVER WITH. [/self-pep talk]

So you're saying that straight sex is Coke and oral sex is Pepsi... and our current generation is of the Pepsi variety?
1) Language & Composition: I love my teacher for this class. She's so refreshing. At first I thought she was intimidating because she's not afraid of being blunt with her students (never insulting, although I think some of my classmates mistake her bluntness for meanness), but she's a clever teacher with a lot of interesting opinions. I myself have yet to be criticized by her, and she smiles sometimes when I volunteer to read my writing to the class, so hey. I can't complain. :3

Incidentally, my class is reading A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and this song by The Killers strongly reminds me of the book. I'm not entirely sure why, I think it's more of a "me" thing, but I can't say I much mind. <33

2) Korean: I don't dislike this class, but to be honest, sometimes it feels like I'm not learning anything useful. Although I think I'm beginning to feel this way about all pre-college language classes. My Lang teacher made an offhand comment regarding this a little while back, and I have to agree; using Japanese as an example here, I think it's somehow wrong that my classmates know the Japanese word for intersection, but not the word for feeling (or anything even vaguely abstract, for that matter).

On the plus side, I adore my classmates; this is the only class in which I feel like I'm learning with a big group of friends.

3) Psychology: ohmygod. I never, ever thought that I'd like a lecture-based class in high school so much. Or even just a Social Science class (that leans more towards Natural Science IMO, which makes my liking it even more surprising). On some days, it feels more like an Anatomy class, and on others, a Philosophy class. Hell, just last Thursday, we were discussing Emotional Intelligence and its importance in everyday interactions. I just. Love love love this class. <33

I don't think I've talked about my new Psych teacher yet: though I don't connect with her as much as my old teacher, I'm willing to admit that she's the better/obviously more experienced teacher. Easily one of the best lecturers I've encountered thus far, and yet another fascinating person with a lot of interesting opinions.

4) Ceramics: This is the first time that I've felt an art/music elective at my school actually deserved its status as an Honors class. Between the art gallery visits & analyses, the 20-hour project, and being graded on our in-class works (really graded, that is), it's very common for students to be doing work for this class outside of class time.

And during the past few months, I've finally, FINALLY started getting good at working with the clay. During the first couple months of the school year, I think I was artistically handicapped or something... I don't know, but my pieces are getting a lot better-looking now. I'm starting a project on the wheel next week, which should be interesting, to say the least. I hope my hands have gotten stronger since my last (horrible) attempt at throwing a pot.

5) Japanese: As much as I hate to admit it, this class has become utter language Hell. Mostly because we've begun to prep for the (from what I've heard, ridiculously difficult) AP exam, and my teacher has us doing impromptu speeches, for godsakes. I think the students in this class as a whole feel very, very ill-prepared for the sudden spike in difficulty in this class. I mean, honestly. Impromptu speeches. :(

6) Information Technology: My guyfriends told me this was a blow off class, and honestly? I just needed something to fill up my schedule.

The bastards lied. One month in, and I still have no idea what the hell I'm doing on Dreamweaver.

7) PreCalculus: I won't mince words here: I hate this class. My teacher is an okay person and all, but good god, do I hate this class. It's not even just my ineptitude at the subject (I'm okay at Algebra and most of Geometry, but I HATE TRIANGLES AND CIRCLES I HATE THEM SO MUCH IT MAKES ME INCOHERENT), but just the class itself just fails to inspire any kind of interest in anyone who doesn't have a natural inclination towards Math. I swear, I can almost FEEL my brain cells shutting down every time I have to sit through 100 minutes of this class.

And this is the one and only class in which I feel inarticulate; when my teacher calls me to solve an equation, it's like:

Teacher: Using the data available, how do we find the measurement of side A?
Me: (ohshit ohshit) ......Umm..... do we use... the Law of Sines? *squeaks*
Teacher: Yes...
Me: .....And then... we assign the variables to... to the, umm... to the-
Classmate next to me: *whispers* sinA is 574, sinB is 240.
Me: sinA is 574, sinB is 240? o_o;;

IT'S LIKE I'VE REGRESSED TO A TWELVE-YEAR OLD. Please, please tell me that I can go through college without ever taking Calculus? I know that's the coward's way out, but damn it. I fully admit to being a coward if it means I can get out of taking Calc. T_____________T


Shit, that was long. Though knowing me, I'll probably never talk about school again, so. xDD;;

And now I have two fics to read/comment on, and two fics to force myself to work on. I do wonder when fandom started to become like homework. ^^;;

This is so precious.


Pre-puberty Junsu singing "The Greatest LUBB Love of All" in the CUTEST fobby accent I have ever heard. He really does sound like BoA LOL. And woah, SINGING PRODIGY MUCH?? Junsu = talent. <3333

Oh, and a weird little fandom tidbit that's pretty much confirmed at this point: according to the Guinness Book of Worlds Records (that is, the people who maintain the records, since the info didn't appear on the 2008 version of the book), DBSK has the largest official fanclub in the world: Cassiopeia with over 800,000 members.

That's... really fucking scary, to be honest. The power of Korean fangirls. o_o;;

EDIT: Oh, and my sister tried the Yunho cake I made the other day, and she said she liked it despite the thing having melted like no other. xDD;;
