man. summer school has been really kicking my ass lately. which explains my unfulfilled promises [my apologies] of updating. Blame summer school for this. I can't wait till its over. but then right after the whole month of august its gonna be busy as hell. I know for sure as soon as school starts i'll be on more often because i'm suffering during the summer for it. My senior year is definitely gonna stay chill so its almost a promise unless my computer dies on me again.
and yes my computer did die on me. which was also a part of why I did not update. My computer finally decided to go wacko on me recently. and I had also gotten into an argument with my older cousin who was supposed to help me with my computer. but luckily my sisters friend came to my rescue and formatted my computer for me. He even helped me install microsoft vista for me. I really thought it wouldnt work because i heard all these stories of people who installed it and it didnt work for them because their computers did not have the necessary components or something. I dont know but i guess mine did. so yeah. i love it. i can finally copy and paste!!!!!!!!!! WOOT. :] I have still yet to experiment with PS CS3. It's a little overwelming because i all of a sudden went from PS7 to CS3. haha. ^^' to bad all the brushes and everything was lost. *shrug*.
I don't wanna talk about the argument my cousin and I had gotten into. It's quite stupid [on his part] for him to get mad and take it out on me. so now me and him are just w/e to each other. we dont even talk anymore. mainly because its his fault but he's too stubborn to apologize for it.
so today my sister, brother, my other 2 cousins, and I went to the movies to watch "I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry". It's a hilarious movie if you're in a neutral stance on homosexuality. I think most people will enjoy it unless you're a homophobe. I love Adam Sandler's movies. I love him. XDDD overall a fairly awesome movie. go watch it unless you're sensitive to the whole homo thing. but overall a pro gay marriage movie. its funnay. :]
I'll try to visit but I can't guarantee anything since my day will be busy. I'll be spending about 6 hours at a car wash fundraiser then i have to go to my friends pool party >.o i wont be swimming though. I probably won't stay long though. dont know yet.
i hope i survive summer school. I have the same teacher for 5 hours. =.= *sigh*
Hey guys. It's been a while since I've updated. Sorry about that. I said I would update when I got back from AX but things got in the way and yeah. But now I finally found some time to tell my story. :]
*WARNING: LONG ASS POST COMING UP*
Ok so Thursday night, my sisters boyfriend slept over so we didn't have to pick him up the next day. The only problem with this plan was that we had to constantly hide him from my aunt, who was put in charge after my parents had left for Australia. Lucky us, she never came to check up on us like my mom would do in the middle of the night. So we had all planned to try to stay up all night, but that went flying out the window. We all knocked out within an hour. haha. Earlier we had tried to fit the pool side chairs into my dad's escalade but they were too tall so they didn't fit. damn. I really wanted to bring those too. But we managed to pack almost everything including luggage and anything we wanted to bring for the weekend. We had a huge bag just for junk food. haha. it was the best. XDD
So friday morning, my stupid brother decides to come into our room at 5:45 AM and wake us up. =.= man I felt REALLY dead. sheesh. after a little bickering about who should get up first, we finally all just got up and got ready to go with some last minute packing. We then got some light breakfast and went to pick up my older cousin who was driving us there. He was as dead as we were. haha. He's a worse morning person than us. haha. The drive there wasn't as bad. My sister and cousin made the traffic sound so bad, but once we were in there, it wasn't even as bad as they described it. pft. When we arrived though, my face just dropped. The line was FREAKIN long. The longest line I've ever seen. But then again the first day always has the most people because everyone needs to pick up their badge. After my oldest cousin there, dropped us off at AX, we decided to try to get some food around the area. The Hyatt hotel buffet was pretty close so we went there. I had breakfast already so I told the lady that I wasn't going to get food. But when we passed the bagels, I lost it. I begged my younger cousin to sneak me a bagel, which later on backfired on us. The waitress lady came up to me and my cousin and told us that they were watching us the whole time. Lucky us, she didn't charge us. There was no way I was going to pay 16 bucks for just one bagel. cmon. so we finally walked ALL the way back to the Hilton Hotel [which was the farthest hotel from the convention center]. After walking in the sun for the longest time, we finally got there. We waited for HOURS upon hours just waiting for a room. The front desk told us they had two room [of three] ready and getting cleaned up. so we waited some more. we went up again and asked about that room and they said, they didn't have any rooms for us! >[ WTF!!! That's so BS. I swear. So we later went up again and asked them and they said they had one room getting cleaned up so we said ok. we waited until 3pm [check in time] and they still didn't have any rooms for us. I swear. Bad service. and when we finally DID get our rooms, they weren't even the rooms we had requested. We were supposed to have all the rooms with 3 queen beds. but two of them were one king and a cot/rollover. I was pretty pissed off from falling asleep so many times in the hotel lobby already. But it was better than nothing. They told us we could switch our rooms the next day, so we planned just that. we dropped off our stuff in the room and finally left to go get our badges.
So we got there and there was STILL this HUGEASS line. Lucky us, those were for the people who didn't pre-register. suckers. turns out, there was no line for the pre-registered people so they just stuck us in the front of the line straight into the building. haha. WHOO! so once we got in, we had to walk in the sun some more. =.= freakin A. By the time we actually got inside, the exhibit halls we closing in ten minutes. =.= wtf. so we had to rush around just looking, since we were planning to buy stuff on sunday instead because its cheaper. The exhibit hall was fairly smaller than last year. actually WAY smaller than last year. I think they made the wrong choice to relocate it in Long Beach this year. Many would agree with me if you were actually there. Many of the BIG companies didn't even show. For example, Tokypop. Where the hell were they?? And I also found that the majority of the shops sold the exact same things the other booths right next to them were selling. talk about variety. *sigh*. So after we left the convention center, my sister picked us up and met up with my other cousins and his friends. we were all tired and starving by then. So we walked around all around that area, and my god. everywhere was PACKED beyond belief. Long Beach's population had tripled overnight. Really. So we had to walk pretty far to find a place that wasn't packed beyond belief. After having dinner we all walked back to the hotel. It actually felt really nice at night so the walk was fine. By the time we got back into our room, we were all pretty exhausted from the day. now...sleeping arrangements. We had to move around all the furniture to set up an air bed. So my sister and her boyfriend slept on the king bed. I slept of the rollover/cot. my brother slept on the ever deflating air bed, and my cousin slept on the little sofa in the room. We all fell asleep freezing our asses off, because everyone was to lazy to get up and turn the ac temp higher. haha. so we just suffered all night. Lol.
I think the post has gone long enough. I'll continue this into three parts for the three days we stayed at long beach. PART 1 END.
WHOOOOOOOOO! sorry I haven't been on for so long. after finals were over I got really caught up in vacation and I had to take care of my little cousin for the whole week. Then summer school started. Since these aren't make-up classes, it'll be a pain in the neck with the overload of homework and assignments. Two classes are already hardcore. =.= my god. I'm not gonna have a life for the next 6 weeks. T.T so sad.
so you guys are probably pretty curious as to why i decided to update today of all days. WEll first of all............AX2007!!!!!!!!!!!! whooo!! I know some of you guys are also going. whoo to you!! XDDDD I will be staying at a hotel for three of four days of AX [since i still got school >.< which totally sucks ass]. And yes I am hoping to meet up with adam and the rest of the members who decide to come to the meet up with the myotaku people. XDD haha get to meet adam up close. how cool.
When I come back, I'll be updating this site once again to, of course, update. haha. I'll hopefully have pictures up with the crazy anime people XDDD so I look forward to that. I also look forward to stop procrastinating [not that its even possible anyway] and start to update this site regularly again. I might even be changing my layout once again if i have enough time. :] hopefully it'll happen to my advantage. ^_^ whoo....
haha. guess who'll be drinking this weekend ;] [dont worry alex. i wont go crazy]. anyways I wont be having the comment link up this time, since i'm predicting that not many will comment anyways. haha. IF you do find yourself wanting to comment, i give you a pat in the back *pat* for being loyal to my inconsistently updated site. If you're desperate [i doubt it XD], just PM me. ♥ you guys. bye bye for the weekend.
wow. what a weekend I had. *rolls eyes* but seriously. it was pretty crazy. *WARNING* this is going to be a long post.******
k. Friday after school my cousin, sister and I went to my moms shop to pick up some swimsuits. Right after we went to my grandmas house to visit. Appearently my baby cousin, Justin, is obsessed with the whole Chinese Lion thing. Has anyone seen those Lion things during Chinese New Years with like 6 people in it dancing down the street? yeah those. My baby cousin likes to imitate them and even memorized the drum strokes to the video he was watching. It's so cute. Then he got scared from the cricket my grandmas neighbor gave him. haha. it was pretty funny.
Saturday. New bowling season and I was actually made a captain. =.= I SOO did not agree to it!! why?!!!! but its pretty shameful for me because I'm one of the older bowlers in our league and I'm stuck in the lower division. =.= pretty sad...for me at least. but then I had to bowl against someone who had a higher average than me [by 5 pts] who bowls like a 2 year old. he literally uses two hands and kind of drops the ball. it's pissed me off that he was so cocky about it too. so I guess it really gave me the motivation to PWN his ass. And I did. which made me really happy cuz lately I've been doing horrible [even the coaches noticed]. My average dropped A LOT.
we had a banquet for the previous season later that day. It was pretty good. I did really bad that season but I still won scholarship money. WHOO. and for the grand prize raffle..........
I WON A TV!!!!!!!!!!O.O OMG!!!
it wasn't anything fancy like a plasma but screw that. I GOT A FREAKING TV! FOR FREE! yaya! I was so happy i was like spazing out in my chair. haha. i had to admit. it was pretty funny. i also got a gift card for Walmart. :]
Later that night, we hooked up our Gamecube in our room and I was playing game almost the whole time. XD its so great to have my own TV in my room. >.< my sisters BF, Albert, came over but thats when things turned for the worse.
we heard a car alarm and went out to check it out. the next minute Albert comes running in looking for a flashlight. we went out and both his left side windows are smashed straight through. As we ran outside, our neighbors from across the street ran over because they heard the noises from the smashing. we called the cops. it was weird because as we were calling the cops, this BMW convertible comes down our street slowly with the top off with 4 guys in the car all wearing hoodies and caps looking down forward. It was a little BEYOND suspicious don't you think?? so we waited for the FREAKIN POPO FOR THREE FREAKING HOURS which really pissed me off because they didn't come till almost 2Am. what the EFF.
my dad felt really bad about Albert's car so he told him to drive home with his beamer which was WAY generous. It really sucks too because Albert lives almost an hour away from us. It sucks even more because he has no insurance on the car.he left that night with the BMW.
Sunday. went to art class. finally finished those stupid grapes. got to take home my painting I had finished two weeks earlier. came home and slept a little in my sisters bed because i had spent the majority of the day before sorting our over 200 swimsuits. =.= my god. Albert came early afternoon to clean out ALL the glass from inside his car and from all over the street. my dad busted out his 6.5 horsepower vacuum. lmao. it was pretty crazy. it sucked up the big chunks of glass like nothing. damn. my dad made him a cardboard ebay window to make sure nothing flies out the window. lol. it was pretty ghetto. funny though. so albert drove his car home without one side window.
later that night we went out to eat with my dads side of the family to celebrate a VERY belated mothers day for my grandma. we all busted out the DS's while waiting for our food. lol. i ♥ tetris.
monday. freakin stupid sister being a butt and woke me up at 6:30AM. yargh. =.= so i went to school procrastinating once again. lol. two more weeks!!! OMFG!@!@#$^A#&*$%^#& cant wait to become to a senior. WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!. so afterschool dropped my friend off, killed a couple of people on the street, and went straight home. then i went to go do some errands for my sister. after dinner we rested for a while then my sister forcedme to watch a movie with her. we watched "Hotel Rwanda". This is definitely a REALLY good movie. It's really sad. It's also historical. GO WATCH IT. I almost cried a couple of times. One of the best movies I've ever seen. Very inspirational.
after watching the movie, i went on to write my personal narrative for my english class. This time I wrote about something that i was VERY sensitive about, my grandfather's death. In the middle of it, i started crying and had to take several breaks to finally finish it cuz i couldn't see what i was typing. heh. i ♥ my grandpa so much. I miss him so much.
well these past two days were eventful. :] On friday after school I had to rush to the office to turn on my SCOC [BigBrother/BigSister] form. basicly they help the new student to the school and try to make them feel welcome and if they need help they'll just come to us seniors next year. I'm not too passionate about the freshman but I guess I can tolerate them. Lately freshmans coming into our school have become as mature as Kindergarteners. But this program will look really good on my transcript so I'm gonna do it. :] then I went to the mall to buy my POTC tickets for saturday afternoon. after that i went to my friends house for a little bit. We then hung out at my cousins house. It was fun. Then I dropped off my friend at her house then at the movies. I had to wait till my parents were out of the house then I smuggled my brother and cousin XDDD. we went bowling again since saturday there wasn't any bowling. Last week was the end of the season. We barely came home in time to avoid my mom and dad catching us. XDD
Saturday - The whole morning I just kind of sat there on my computer. then when I was about to leave to the theaters, my mom made me and my sister make food for the family. =.= she could've told us earlier. geeze. so we made food and gobbled everything. XD so we went to the movies like 2 hours early. haha. so like an hour before the movie started we lined up OUTSIDE. =.= I swear I was about to get deep fried. We waited forever >.< both my legs turned red. T.T we watched the movie. IT WAS SO GOOD! I ♥ Jack Sparrow. XD after that we came home and made dinner. after dinner we went bowling AGAIN. but at the other bolwing alley, they had this special where you pay $30 to play unlimited games from 11PM to 1AM. totally worth it. so we were there until like 1:20. XD
and that brings my day to a close. :] We might go to the beach after my moms is done making dumplings. XDD I are SOOOO HUNGRY!!!!!!! *runs around the house like a beast*
NekoNoKuro - Yeah I have watched The Ring. It wasn't really scary at all, just a little suspense and disturbing images. Makes you somewhat freaked out about wells but thats about it. I've seen worse. i dont think its possible to make me capitalize properly. XDDDD
AnimeFantasy - yeah it opened earlier over here too. I think they did that with most movie theaters. It opened around 9PM on thursday for us. *shrug* I would've gone but I kind of have a driving curfew and i would die in the crowd. XDD
Munky - Mr Englans IS funny. He likes to make fun of people. He's a really cool guy. He especially likes to make fun of britney spears...and plus he nonstop curses. haha. it's amusing.
ELVES - GASP! I wish we had German in our school. I totally want to learn German, but then again next year we're going to have Korean. *shrug* i think that' pretty cool.
Yay. another update. I told myself to update yesterday but I got distracted big time. I even forgot almost everything I was going to say. haha. So I'll just talk about yesterday since it's currently morning and I am on the school computer. I really don't like IE. =.=
Ok so yesterday we had shortened periods because of the Pops assembly. the only problem is that we had TRIPLE second period. =.= we have too many people at our school so we had to do 3 assemblies. my god. so at the assembly we had our chanteurs [men&women singing/dancing group] and our symphony orchestra and concert band play. I really like the concert choir too. they were really good. Chanteurs did an amazing job as always. But the group I liked the most was orchestra directed by my old choir teacher, Mr. England. he's REALLY good and he's pretty funny too. I ¢¾ him. :] So....the reason I ¢¾'ed orchestra's performance so much is because they played a medley of a whole bunch of POTC music in dedication to the 3rd movie thats coming out friday [I think]. I really want to watch the movie!! but I already know that it'll be SUPER packed the opening weekend. i was thinking maybe next week but if my friend invites me to go on saturday, I might go with her. XDD
triple second was SO freakin long. I was in there for over an hour. =.= The good thing is that it was my japanese class AND my teacher was nice enough to let us watch a movie most of the period. :] she's cool.
the rest of the day was a blurr. might not be able to visit as much today because I'll be staying after school for a few hours staying with my friend. She's having an interview to get into the schools news channel [not sure what you would call it but it's when the students do the news casting on tv once a week to update the school on blah blah blah]. And then when i get home after that I know that I'll be spending at least an hour helping my mom around the kitchen for dinner. Then we eat, then i do the dishes. by then a couple of hours already passed. So I pretty much will only have like an hour to visit everyone. *sigh* i need more time in my life. T.T
hm. don't know what else to say....Oh. I also put new music up. it's my favorite song from LP's new album. :] enjoy
So I lied. I ended up posting today. XDD haha. whoops. I actually found some time to update before I go to sleep. :] yay.
so Friday I got my award for winning the patriotic contest. It felt kind of weird because it was during 5th period. so I got my check then went back into class. In class we made slime and silly putty. >.< from scratch. BWAHAHHA. my slime was so fun. it was all jiggly [haha]. it was fun though.
Saturday. after bowling me and my sister went to the mall [I mentioned this yesterday too]. We stopped by a whole bunch of shoe stores to look for shoes but didnt get anything. after my sister got her ring, we stopped by hot topic to buy the LP CD. I also got another t-shirt. They had special LP t-shirts on sale for $10 but they didnt have my size. it was either too small or way too big. =.= dammit. SayanaChan: I can't really compare their new CD to meteora because it's almost completely different. There is definitely more screaming but there is also not as hardcore as they were before. They have more of the slower tracks but there is still the hardcoreness. haha. It is more diverse than any of their past albums.
after the mall my mom brought us to shop for clothes but me and my sister didnt really buy anything. I just bought a wallet. *shrug*
Sunday. got to sleep in again. until my mom came in and woke us up. =.= didn't do much in the morning. later on in the day my mom brought us shopping again since we didnt really buy anything the day before. I bought another wallet while my sister got another pair of sunglasses. lol. basicly it was only my mom shopping for clothes. haha. came back and went out to eat with my cousins. we went to souplantation once again. usually we bring a party of 13 or more. haha. this time it was only 13. [i know. big family]. stuffed ourselves and came back. and that was my weekend. not too busy. :]
i was thinking of replacing my old buttons with some new ones. so some of you guys who have my button on your site, you might want to change it to one of my newer ones if you want. you dont have to. :]
Hey guys. sorry for not updating for the whole week. =.= I tried to but I didn't have enough time because i was ACTUALLY trying to do my homework :o zomg. haha. and plus I was also attempting to sleep earlier so I can get more sleep instead of waking up late to school everyday. So forgive me. :]
For now until the end of school, I won't be updating all too much since Finals are almost here and the teachers are pushing everything to the last two weeks of school. =.= There's not that many more days of school left. We have less than a month left of school. My school gets out on the 14th of June. WOOT! And then once summer vacation is here, I'll be on like everyday. Oh Dandy.
Not that much to talk about. My life hasn't been all too exciting. The only thing that I REALLY look forward to though, is AX. It kind of sucks that some of the people that I was looking forward to see at the convention aren't going this year.
I got bored today and made two more buttons for myself. You can see them on the right module. X] I've finally come to the conclusion that, I won't be making wallpapers anymore. I might change my mind in the future but for now, it's a no for me. I much prefer making the smaller stuff like banners or buttons. They make my life a lot easier. haha. I think I will leave the wallpaper making to Sammy. :]
Oh yeah. I went to the mall with my sister yesterday and I got the new Linkin Park CD. I don't see why people are so disappointed with LP. I mean you can't expect them to have the same exact sound after 4 years of not having an album out. I still love their album. I like the new sound even if they have profanity now and it has more of a emo sound. They still own.
Hm. I think I'm done for now. I'll try to update again in a few days. Everyday updating has become too much of a hassle for me. But I still ♥ you guys to death. :]
well my weekend was pretty good. Right after dinner, my cousins picked me and my sister up to go to my aunts place which is like a 40 minute drive. [she lives in burbank]. On our way there we got lost cuz we couldnt find the street we were supposed to turn into. so we drove around for a while. then we finally found the street. my sister wrote down the wrong street address. haha. what a loser. so yeah. we went over there to visit my aunt [she's really young. she's like 26]. her boyfriend was sick so he was sleeping. we ate some of his dads cooking and holy mother. he makes the best viet food EVER. it was so good. we like gobbled everything. lol my family eats A LOT.
ok so after eating and talking for a couple of hours, we went inside and played the wii and jenga. my aunt just recently bought the wario smooth moves game and wow. that is one fun game. i couldnt get off it all night. haha. we weren't allowed to leave until i broke a record. XDDD and of course, being as skilled as i am, i beat it like crazy. kahaha. my older cousin KO'ed on the sofa. lol. and my oldest cousin  came and visited with her baby too. XDD her son is SOOO cute. he's so fat. lol. he's really funny.
saturday, went bowling, as always. for once i didn't do bad. O_O ZOMG. lol. went home for awhile after then went out with my friend to help him get mothers day gift for his mom. he's so clueless. haha. my god. then we went to the mall and looked around. after that i treated him to food and we finally had some alone time to actually catch up. it's been a while. i never got the chance to talk to him alone. :] it was good. then after i dropped him off, i went to my cousins house to eat dinner. me and my other older cousin fell asleep on the floor while waiting for my mom to show up for dinner. lol. he was gonna send me the new linkin park songs but we didnt have time. :[ bummer. later that night we went bowling. again. but this time it was just for fun. there were these REALLY annoying people next to us though. i hate it when people start screaming and yelling when they get a spare. ugh. i swear. and then when the neon lights and music went on, they went ballistic as if they were on drugs or something. so immature. when we got back, my dad opened my aunts truck and WHAM his heavy bowling bag lands straight onto his shins. >.O and his bag was HEAVY and plastic. haha. oh man. i felt so bad for him. :[ he told me his whole shin area was bruised up that night. he put one of those patch thingies on it and it didnt swell as much anymore. dang.
this morning i canceled my art class to stay home with my mom since it was MOTHERS DAY. my aunt tried to make us go eat with her without inviting my mom. we told her we wouldnt go then she got all mad. i mean seriously. its mothers day and you expect us to go eat without our own mom. psh. so finally she convinces my mom to go with her, but we ended up picking the place. so we went out to eat Pho but the place was PACKED! we had to park in the street. lol. so later my mom went shopping for food for dinner and my dad dropped us back home. me and my sister ran to her car and left right away hoping to make it before my mom came back. so we went to target and bought a whole bunch of balloons and a helium tank and poster and decorative stuff. by the time we came home, my mom was already home so i had my sister walk in first while i bring all the stuff to our back door [which is conveniently located in our room] and she open the door. so me and my sister decorated a poster, blew up the whole bag of balloons and made all these folded up hearts. each heart had a reason why we loved my mom. we had a whole box full the hearts. my mom later went out with my dad to check out a house. so me and my sister ran into her room with all the balloons and stuff. i think we had like 30 balloons in her room. we had the poster on her bed with a whole bunch of rose pedals on her bed with a single red rose. later that night she went into her room and she was wowed. ^_^ we then later gave her the box full of hearts. we also snuck in this one little books full of quotes by famous people about motherhood. i could tell she was really happy. i ♥ it when my mom smiles. :]
and that pretty much summarized my weekend. i know....LONG. XDD
dammit. i still have homework to do. =.=
Oh yeah. i forgot to mention. I have recently started to upload music to my music dump site again. so i fyou want to check it out, the link is above my post. :]
Well I'll try to keep this post short since I don't have much to talk about today. This morning almost wasn't able to get up again because of my bad habit of staying up late and doing nothing productive until midnight. That's when I do my homework. haha. anyways. today english class, this group actually did a really good presentation of a short story that we had to present [I talked about this last time about presentation for a whole hour]. I laughed almost the whole time. And that's pretty rare in an English class...if you know what I mean. XD
after school munky came over and we just hung out at my house for a while. Ate ramen and talked some more. then cooked rice and helped prepare food for dinner. After dinner, we went swimming. I didn't swim for personal reasons...girls. you know what i mean. ;]
then a whole bunch of my sisters friends came over to get ready for clubbing night. they go "dancing" on thursdays. haha. most of them have friday off so yeah.....lucky. After they left, I started to work on the painting again and for once, its not going by slow. I'm still in them middle of painting it. I'm just taking a break to update. XD
and that's my day. *sigh* today was pretty hot again. but not as hot as yesterday. yesterday was SOO freakin hot. i hate living next in a desert area. maybe that's why its so much hotter over here than somewhere else in CA. Lindsey, what part of CA did your parents go to? cuz i'm pretty sure if they were in Southern California, they wouldnt think it was cold....=.= no way in hell.....
