Dorrramaaaa!

ひさしぶりね!

It’s been so long since i blogged and I kind of lied in my last blog because I never posted…that was because of a snowball-effect thing.  We didn’t have internet in China so I didn’t get to write my blogs and then in Japan I was behind and didn’t want to have to write the old ones but also did?  And we always got back late so I was too tired to type up a lot.  Anyway, I loved it!  It also helped me with some of the last things I’ve been talking about on here.

I know have a LOT more friends that I’m close with here or really like hanging out with from my college.  So, I guess through time, the amount of hurt I’ve had, and these new friends, I’ve stopped being hung-up on my high school friends.  If I think about it too much I still cry and feel sad, but now I know that they’re missing out on someone who truly cares about them, so it’s bad for them ><  Not to talk about myself like I’m awesome, heh heh, I just really care for those I’m close too.  Anyway, one of these friends introduced me to a new love that I can indulge in here since I miss Japan so much!  DORAMAS!!!

The first week back from Japan I was so jet-lagged and bored that I watched an entire drama series.  And now I started two others!  ><

So, the first one I watched was amazing is called 花よりだんご(hana yori dango) or Boys over Flowers.  It was pretty dorky, but really cute.  As are most doramas.  But this followed a girl who falls in love with a super rich boy.  The boy of course scorns her at first but then falls for her.  Basically the plot of them all ><  However, the side characters make the show amazing.  For example, the main character’s boss is dramatic and claims to have had many great lovers no matter what century it was, haha.  She’s very strange and is always eavesdropping, so she adds some very strange drama.  Eh, you should just watch it because, yeah.  Also, I talked to multiple Japanese guys and they’d all seen this drama too because it was so popular.

Offeringsometea2< Superrrr cute scene!  Also, rumor is these two are dating in real life and going to get married!  かわあいい!!!

The ones I’m watching now do have similar plots, but eh.  I’m watching one with my roommate, who watched the anime so wanted to watch it too, called いたずらなキス!(itazura na kiss: Love in Tokyo) or Mischievous Kiss.  The characters are over the top and hilarious.  In this one, the main character expresses her love for the most popular guy in school and he shoots her down.  Then, this girl’s new house is hit with a meteor which makes the house fall down, because, Physics.  And so the girl and her dad have to move in with her dad’s friend.  But wait!  She soon finds out the man she professed to is the friend’s son!  Hahaha, so amazing.  Anyway, the guy’s mom is by far the best character.  She loves the main character, Kotoko, because she is the daughter the mom has always wanted.  And there for she pushes them to get together.  She’s also into photography:

ItazuranaKissLoveinTokyoEpisode144

If anything you need to watch it just for the amazing faces the main character makes.

686c1d13tw1e44fkbo1x4j20zk140dtg<This is nothing compared to a face she makes in season 1, episode 8!  My roommate and I laughed for a good few minutes and then rewound it during that episode ><  Actually, my awesome roommate just found that face, here, enjoy!

tumblr_ml83og92eO1ru3ih7o1_500<She’s also very relatable 😀  This is when she’s studying Physics and Math

And the last one I’m watching is called 花君(hana kimi) or known as Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (花ざかりの君たちへ, For You in Full Blossom).  It’s about a girl in love with a guy so much that she cuts her hair and changes so that she can be a boy.  This is so she can get into school with him at his all-boys school.  Again, this one is very ridiculous but it stars Ikuta Toma, who is a cutie pie, sooo, worth it 😀

hanakimi-e

So, Hana yori dango is on Youtube, Itazura na Kiss is on Hulu and Crunchyroll, and Hana Kimi is sort of on Youtube?  Otherwise a site called gooddrama.net is my friend’s go to.  Watch them!!!! They have helped me learn knew vocab, cultural things, and given me quite a few laughs.  Also, I forgot to mention that I really go into dramas because in Japan a new one (with Toma) came out called Ouroboros while we were there.  It was super good, so I’ve been trying to somehow watch it because it’s a really interesting concept about two orphan boys, one yakuza and one cop who are trying to get revenge on their mother-like figure.  I may have found some, but I’ve been having issues so if anyone knows, please let me know!  I definitely recommend that one too!  So, enjoy and if you want to know more, you can ask :D, but I will not give spoilers!

Thanks for reading!

Traveling

Why, hello there.  Long-time-no-rant-see.  Wellll, this isn’t a rant.  Yayyyyy!?  So, Happy New Year!!! Let’s hope it’s a better one, eh?

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m going to China and Japan this month.  I was supposed to leave early this morning, but weather happened so I don’t leave until 6 a.m. tomorrow morning.  And, because I am awesome and waited until the last minute to pack, I didn’t have time to blog last night.

Anywho, this is just a short announcement (statement?) that I had to create another blog for school about my year in the class.  So, I will be posting diary-ish entries on that blog rather than this one for the time being.  I’m hoping it will be every day, and if not, I’ll post about multiple days in one blog.  I may not be able to post everyday in China either, because WordPress is blocked in China…so unless I find a way around that, I won’t post until the 10th or so when I get to Japan.

Without further ado, this is my other blog address, and please excuse the lack of depth in my Japanese description.  I can basically write like a second grader right now, so sue me.  Anyway, I hope you find it interesting, maybe if I decide to write something that I wouldn’t like other students or teachers to know, I’ll use this blog, but until then, laterzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!  ❤

Just let the pain remind you hearts can heal…

Maybe I’m over exhausted or something because it’s finals time, but I keep feeling like crying thanks to the idea of going home and having friends “so excited to hang out” blah blah blah.  I wish I felt like seeing them, but honestly, seeing them makes me feel, empty I guess.  I’ve probably said it, but only one friend from home has really been there for me.   Well, two.  (I’m just so bad at texting to stay in touch that we don’t talk enough when I’m away, but we got really close this summer).  My other friend, though, asks me almost every day how I’m doing and shows an interest in my life/in me.  I have tried multiple times to start conversations with my friends while we’re at school and my friends always end them shortly.  It’s been weighing heavy on my heart, so sorry that I keep talking about it.  But I am so grateful I found such a great friend in college.  She keeps me distracted and having fun so I don’t have to think about it ><.

However, I just got a message from my friend saying that we should all get together for dinner or something when we come home after finals.  This is the friend whose been there for me, so I don’t want to say anything, but man, I really don’t want to see any of my other friends.  And that sucks, because we used to be close.  I just don’t get how people can forget about others so easily and painlessly.  Why am I stuck in a corner crying my eyes out every time I think about them, when they can be so happy, off in their own little world?  I’m an emotional person, but this heart is starting to be hardened towards them.

Also, I never respond to group messages anymore on Facebook because I just don’t want to have to pretend that I’m happy and okay with everyone.  Inside, I’m crumpling and can’t breathe.  I can’t make stupid, fake, meaningless, superficial conversation.  None of them even notice or ask why I don’t respond.  None ask me what’s up in private messages.  None of them look at posts I make on Facebook.  Sure, that’s a stupid thing to think about, but that’s how my generation is staying in communication with each other and when no one communicates that way or anyway else, it’s hard.

So honestly, I don’t know what to do.  I know people keep telling me that this happened to them and that friends come and go.  While I see this argument, it still hurts so much and since I have never been one to have a huge group of friends, my pals from high school (the 5-6 close ones) were supposed to be there for me and, in turn, me for them.

I wrote this with a lot of emotions running through my head and I had a feeling like I was going to explode into a river of tears, so I stopped writing for a while.  So I’m not really sure where I was going to go with this post…

And obviously, because I keep talking about them or referencing them, Paramore is a huge influence in terms of song lyrics I listen to.  So when the song Hate to See Your Heart Break came out, I thought it was a sad, yet pretty song that was kind of fun to sing to because of the changes in it.  Now I truly understand the lyrics and relate to them so much.  I wasn’t really sure at first if this song was about friendship or romantic relationships but I recently read that it was written about friendship, so it became even more relevant.  I especially relate right now to the first verse:

“There is not a single word in the whole world
That could describe the hurt
The dullest knife just sawing back and forth
And ripping through the softest skin there ever was

How were you to know?
Oh, how were you to know?”

I really feel this pain, like I’m being emotionally ripped apart whenever I think of our relationships.  And I, just as the song says, have no way to describe the pain or how I’m feeling, I just know it sucks.  The “how were you to know” is also what’s been eating away at me.  I know that my friends can’t know how I’m feeling right now because I haven’t told them but I don’t want to ruin our friendships or make them feel like they have to walk on eggshells around me.  But I also feel like I should get this off my chest, but I’ve never been a blunt person so, I don’t know how that would turn out.

Wow, sorry to make this so dense and deep….Emotions man, emotions.

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away…

So, I’ve been feeling a little down recently. Old age can do that to you, I suppose…. just kidding because I’m not that old. However, it seems like I’m getting older while celebrities get younger and I have no idea what the hell I’m doing. Honestly, I would lovvvvveee to act or be in a band, however I lack confidence and skills. I’ve always been the shy person who doesn’t like being the center of attention.  And part of my problem is honestly having resting bitch face heh heh.  In fact, I just got told that someone last year thought I didn’t like them when I would’ve rather gotten to know them better.

Any who, I was kind of thinking about everything in terms of what I want to do with my life.  I have no idea.  And people keep telling me I don’t need to, yet everyone around me seems to be figuring that stuff out.  Ugh, why is life so overwhelming and scary?  Well, today I told a friend that they need to practice to be able to be good at something and to not give up.  That something is makeup, by the way.  I’ve been playing with makeup since 7th grade and I love it.  I love trying new looks and weird things that my friends challenge me to try, such as the Cheshire cat and maleficent-inspired makeup.  I love playing with it because makeup is like art to me.  It feels so easy to want to mess with it and try new things so I feel at ease saying that it does get easier and less miserable.  However, I started to wonder if those words really meant anything.

I mean, I was saying them to my friend and really meaning it, yet when people tell me those kinds of things I kind of think “well you have to say that, you’re my friend/family?”.  Or if a celebrity talks about persevering I think, “Yeah, but you can say that that’s what it took because you’re there now.”  It frustrates me that I think this way instead of actually doing things, but I just get so exhausted with my school work.  I mean, I know that I should be writing more because I’m an English major and I would like to be a writer someday, yet when I get back from classes all I want to do is kill brain cells watching TV.  In turn, watching TV makes me feel crappy because I wish I was there, you know, acting.  But again, loneliness and fear keep me from the idea of acting.

I know acting is a very hard field to get into which is what deters me from it a lot.  People tell me I’m good at it but even if I am, I don’t have the heart to go to audition after audition to get rejected each time.  I take things to heart too much heh heh.  And honestly, I tried to be a theater major last year.  This is how it made me feel, except I didn’t have any one trying to reach out to me.  I felt this way in high school too, but I had one friend who encouraged me and stuck with me throughout those years.  Now that we’re at different schools I felt so alone.  I was honestly excited to take theater classes after my first semester of college, however, the week before classes started I had a really scary panic attack.  Luckily, I had a sister to call via skype to talk me down ><.  After that happened I ended up being diagnosed with mild depression and anxiety.  Totally true, and honestly I feel better now that I take something to help ease my sadness.  But there are those days like today where I feel lonely and pathetic.  Even though I have crappy days, I know I have certain people in my life that will always be there, which helps me to smile and get through the day.

I honestly have no idea where this came from today and it’s probably very choppy and tangential, but I don’t care because it’s late and I’m tired and this blog has become word vomit for the time being…. This is why I shouldn’t write so late, but unfortunately, that’s when I usually get my creative bug.  Any, way hopefully the next post I do will be happier ><

Thanks for reading if you made it this far!

Just some random musings

So my computer is currently M.I.A which is depressing, so I’m using an iPad to type this and hating every second.  Recently I’ve also been wanting to write or do creative things but I’ve also been in a bit of a schlump.  It does not help me to get the creative juices flowing.

I just feel so wiped out from the tons of homework I keep getting and the stress of the rest of my college career/ life in the real world.  This stuff makes me just want to fry my mind with Netflix or my newest, yet not so new guilty pleasure, Buzzfeed.  It’s pretty frustrating because there are so many things I’d rather be doing but feel no motivation or energy to do those things.  Also the things I want to do are harder living in a dorm.  For example, I want to learn multiple musical instruments but I feel like I’m annoying everyone around me.  Erg.  Hopefully I’ll get more into writing consistently soon, because my sister started a writing group with some of her friends ( which I didn’t contribute to in October so she’s annoyed with me but I had a paper due every week for the entire month).  Also, next semester I’m crazily taking an 8 am class >< on creative writing.  But maybe this January my blog posts will actually get interesting because I’m leaving the country!

For a class we’re going to China and Japan.  I’m pretty excited and will probably use this as my journal while I’m there.  But that’s all for now because typing on an iPad sucks and it just deleted some of what I wrote before soooo yeah, latahhhz

Hate is a strong word, but I really, really, really don’t like you… Hollywood Edition

Sooo this is my list of 5 (or more) least favorite actresses and my list of 5 least favorite actors.  I know I probably forgot some, but these ones popped into my head first and are ones I really don’t like.  So, list any that you don’t like in comments or if you agree/disagree with anything I said!  And enjoy my negativity!  Yay!  I also put two polls at the end so you can vote on who yor least favorite actress is and who your least favorite actor is.  If your answer is “other” you should post who that other is!  I’m curious.  It also might refresh my memory on some others I forgot.  And yeah, I tried to choose snottyish pictures of them 😀

Top 5 Worst Actresses (in my opinion) Also, it’s in no particular order

1. Katherine Heigl- I did like her in Life As We Know It and sort of in 27 Dresses, but I kind of get a bias when I hear how some actors behave on set, and I have heard plenty of horrible stories about her.  Also, I watched her more recent movies, because let’s face it, I am very into rom coms and so I’ve watched quite a few on Netflix, no matter who was in them.  So, unfortunately, I suffered through One for the Money.  Never watch it.  The accents were atrocious and it was just not a good movie.

katherine_heigl_26235

2. Gwyneth Paltrow- I can’t stand her.  Sorry if you like her, but also, I’m really not sorry.  She is the most arrogant person and every time I hear more of the things she’s said, I want to punch something.  I read another blog post on here that talked about one of her interviews and it involved Paltrow discussing how “easy” it must be to have a 9-5 kind of job rather than her hectic, glamorous lifestyle.  I’ve also never really liked her acting.  It all seems the same to me.  And now, after reading more about her, seeing that she’s in certain movies can put me off from actually wanting to see those movies.  Also, who names their kid Apple?

5393_gwyneth-paltrow -_-

3. Angelina Jolie- Ugh.  I think she’s a mediocre actress at best.  And again, her integrity and entire being is spoiled to me just as is Brad Pitt’s due to how they decided to partake in an affair.  People have told me I have Angelina Jolie-esque lips.  I don’t really see it as a compliment though because I don’t like her… I would rather be told I look like Olivia Wilde (even though I still don’t see the resemblance Brittany).  But honestly, I can’t say there’s a movie out there I actually like with her in it.

86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

 

4. Lea Michele- Have you seen GLEE?  As Starkid once put,

original

But really, she’s so whiny and obnoxious.  And her character seems exactly how she is, ie: A spoiled, needy, self-obsessed snot.  Am I being too mean?  Eh, I’m over it.  Oh, and I love Paramore and she totally butchered The Only Exception.  I was upset.  Yeah, I think I just admitted I used to watch GLEE 😦  That ship has long since sailed though, don’t worry.

Celebrity Sightings In New York City - November 18, 2012

5. Megan Fox/ Kristen Stewart- They both have stale performances.  I know most people don’t like them, but seriously, they could use some coaching lessons.  I did like Kristen Stewart in Speak, but that was probably before all the drugs.  She also cheated on her boyfriend which is really low and stupid.  As for Megan Fox, just ugh.  As my sister pointed out, why does Megan Fox get all the nerdy rolls?  She was in Transformers and now she gets to be in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?  Not fair.  I love TMNT.  Lammmme.

Megan-Fox KRISTEN STEWART at MET Gala 2012

 

Top 5 Worst Actors (again, my opinion and in no particular order)

1. Brad Pitt- I don’t like him for many of the same reasons why I don’t like Angelina Jolie (Team Aniston!).  But I’ve never thought he was that great of an actor.  Can we all take a moment to remember the train wreck that was Troy?  Ahhhh memories.  And I don’t understand why people find him to be so attractive, he’s not attractive to me in the least.  To each their own I suppose.  I will give him Inglorious Basterds, but I liked that mainly for Cristoph Waltz 😀

Brad-Pitt

2. Keanu Reeves- He can’t act.  I’m sorry again, but not really.  He was good in The Matrix simply because the character required him to have no emotions.  He’s right on par with Zooey Deschanel (yeah, I should have added her up there, dangit).  Very poor acting and terrible inflection in both voice and facial expressions.  But, if you love him, or hate him, you have to watch part of Little Buddha.  We did for one of my classes and it is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.  Reeves plays Buddha, but he looks more Egyptian than anything and seems to have been painted bronze.

keanu4 < Pure.  Movie.  Gold.

3. Mark Wahlberg- He, I’ve heard, is also very arrogant and full of himself.  I haven’t seen him in many good films either, but honestly, if you watch The Happening you’ll understand.  Oh look, another Zooey Deschanel reference (she’s in the movie and the movie is terrible).

1812783

4.Sylvester Stalone/That other really bad actor with squintyish eyes, long black hair, and a raspy voice-  Both are in movies that are action-packed and riddled with so little dialogue that I get incredibly boredddd.  I don’t know the second guy’s name but I can picture him perfectly-kind of looks like a Baldwin (oh, add Alec Baldwin to my list too because he really skeeves me out-every single role he’s in).  I will give Stalone the Rocky movies, but he wasn’t even really acting.  Those are all his roles.  The Rocky movies just actually had an interesting plot at times.

MV5BMTQwMTk3NDU2OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTA3MTI0Mw@@._V1_SY317_CR6,0,214,317_AL_

5. Seth Rogen- Ew.  Every thing out of his mouth makes me say ew.  I can’t stand him either.  He’s creepy and talks about creepy things.  I’m not a fan.  I don’t understand how people find him funny, he creeps me out too much.  Maybe grosses me out is a better term, oh well.

"Pineapple Express" Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivals

Also, an ew factor—James Franco.  Major creep nowadays.  But he always kind of creeped me out, just like Joaquin Phoenix (at least Joaquin is a decent actor though).

Pressure pushing down on me…

So I was talking to some people lately and a lot in the past…about the pressures of life.  I mean I’m obviously still in school (as my first post suggests) but I do feel a lot of social and personal pressure.  I mean college aged people now are expected to know what they’ll do for the rest of their lives and to be headed on a good path right away.  Why can’t I just drop out of school and travel the world?  Oh yeah, money, I kind of need that to eat and stuff.poor-college-studentstudent-debt

 

Honestly though, Europe has the right idea.  They encourage young people to take a year off after high school to travel and then they make colleges all the same prices.  (If I’m being general, sorry, this is just what I’ve heard a lot).  I mean I think a lot more people could get good educations if college wasn’t so freaking expensive.  Anywho, this is kind of rambling.

keep-calm-and-travel-europe-6

The reason this idea came up was T.V and the radio.  The rulers of our lives.  I was home for winter break a few months ago and was flipping through channels late at night (Friends was on a commercial) and landed on the Disney channel.

I used to watch this channel all the time in middle school (believe it or not, I used to look up to Miley Cyrus o.0) all the time.  When I watched it I thought the people looked so cool and grown up and i wanted to be like them.  Now, however, I look at them and whimper.  They look either my age or younger (most probably are).  And it succcks.  These young people are making loads of money and are having fun being actors/singers/stars.  Me?  I’m broke and in a school I can barely (gooooooo loans!) afford.

justin <eww top10hottestactresses-emmaw

Anyway, the reason I referenced pressure for this post is because I believe this is a major reason college aged people question what they’re doing in life.  They have people their same age, or younger, becoming stars and role models for kids.  I mean you look at these stars and think, I’m getting an *insert major here*  degree where I’ll probably have a very hard time getting a good job with decent enough wages that I actually like.  It’s terrifying to think of.  I have to have the same job for the rest of my life.  Oh dear lord.

This is why I want to become a cat.  They sleep all day, don’t care about anything, and have a pretty great life if they have good owners.  Can I become a cat now?  I want to sleep most of the day away!  And you get massages everyday?  How awesome would that be?  Ugh, instead I have to face the real world…and all the crap in it.  And I’m not even to the real real world yet.  Yaaaaaay…..

I just depressed myself… Dangit… Oh well, any way, tell me if you agree/disagree or what stuff you have to deal with on a daily basis in terms of presssssureeee.  Thanks for reading, sorry if I depressed you too 😦  😀

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little Unwell…

Soooo I feel sick today, yaaaaaaaaay.  I’ve had a bad headache for a few days, so I thought it’d be super fun to ignore homework, and other things I should be doing, to blog about ten things to avoid when you have a headache!!!  And a few things to do to manage and cure it, hopefully :/

  1. Jumping….and all other exercise, but especially jumping….just try to stay away from moving in general (Also, I started feeling sick/getting the headache after exercising, proving, I think, that exercise really is bad for you).Exercise-on-a-Bad-Day-1.26.13(<She gets it)
  2. The computer/TV/phone screen….oops….blogging was the best idea I’ve ever had           Vision-eyesight-eyes-sore-tired-strain-screens-jpg_162049-300x180
  3. Dense books, and honestly, all forms of reading suck when I have a headache, so it’s pretty good to shy away from education.
  4. Loud music (just make a nice, soothing playlist for sleeping and moments where a single drum beat makes your head want to explode)
  5. Caffeine, if your headache isn’t sickness related or due to a lack of water, you’re probably having caffeine withdrawals.  I’m speaking from experience here, but I’m not a doctahhhh.
  6. Also, with the music, avoid not only loud music, but “yelling” music.  For instance, I love the Kaiser Chiefs, but when listening to their new CD with my headache, my headache decided to grow and multiply and destroy my happiness, so bad choice on my part I guess.
  7. Bright lights are always good to steer clear of as well (this especially means strobe lights).
  8. Any close family members or friends (they will, sometimes, be nice, but come on, who hasn’t yelled at their friend with a bad headache just to screw with them?  It’s fun and we’re all horrible people).                          awkward_family_
  9. Stupid neighbors that, for some reason, think it’s fun to bang on the walls and yell.  (Yeah, I love living in co-ed dorms today)
  10. People in general.  It’s nice to be alone when you feel like complete and utter crap.images

Noowww some “cures”

  1. Sleep!!!! Everyone loves sleep, that’s the true cure of any ailment.  Especially lethargy, look it up.  That’s a true fact.Man sleeping                          Except I’m more like this latelysleep
  2. Good ol’ fashion drugs.  The legal stuff.  Like Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen, although I would love some Excedrin right now…
  3. Teaaaaa, it helps, even if it sometimes tastes grossBlackTea
  4. Laying down and not moving at all.  Basically being sick is really boring and annoying, but I’m sure you know that.
  5. Cold packs can help/ alternating cold and hot….or is that only for muscles?
  6. Ummmm I don’t really know.  I’m drinking sleepytime wellness tea and starting to get sleepy…so ideas are leaving my head.  I suppose if you google it, you’ll find actual advice on how to deal with a headache.                            i-dont-know

Crushcrushcrush

So, although my post doesn’t completely relate to the song in the title, it made me chuckle to myself so…yeah.  But honestly, while I love Paramore, I don’t get this song.  It’s all over the place, but, nevertheless, it is fun to dance to.crush-crush-crush-crush-hayley-williams-paramore-red-hair-favim-com-41849

Any who, today I come to tell you a storrrry.  Not really.  I’m making that up.  But it did happen.  Today.  So, I guess in some ways it’s a story of sorts.  Wow, I’m hyping this up more than it deserves.  And I’m rambling.  Well my “story” is about a crush!  Buh dum bum pshhhh.

So I have a crush on this guy in one of my classes, who, since I’m not very talkative, probably doesn’t even know my name.  Yay!  when-you-find-out-your-crush-likes-someone-else_gp_1130260

Anyway, my sister and mom have been joking with me that since I like romantic comedies so much (shocker from that last post, huh?) I should know how to, essentially “get a guy”.  Welll I don’t.  I’m too awkward and talk about cats way too much for my own good.  So they keep telling me to drop my books in front of this guy and stuff like that. 670px-Have-Cats-Without-Being-a-Cat-Lady-Step-3

Well today, fate opened up the sky and plopped opportunity right in my lap.  Our teacher put our papers in our P.O.s and I went to grab mine.  Who’s should be in my mailbox on accident?  None other than the guy I’m crushing on.  heavens

So what did I do?  Put it back… in his mailbox (while kicking myself and thinking, you just had a great opportunity and blew it…moron).

I went back to my room and sent my friend a message on Facebook and emailed my mom.  They both told me to go back and take it.  I said that that would be weird and stalkeresque.  But then I was dared and offered goober pie (I’m not from the south but I still call Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie goober pie…it’s what my dad calls it).

41458661184<Heaven Right there

My friend also said she’d say something to her crush if I did this.  And I became “strong and confident”.  So, I did it.  I’m a thief.  As my friend dubbed me, I am now author of the story “Paper Thief: Chronicles of Love/Pie”

So, yeah, that was the probably very unexciting recount of how I stole my crush’s paper and now have to give it to him on Wednesday.   Yay…..?  And honestly, I’ll probably just get a “Oh, thanks.” and nothing more.  Oh well, at least I’m a skilled thief now….

Well please comment about anything you want, whether it be pie or embarrassing stories of crushes.  Or shyness.  Or cats.  It can always be about cats. =^.^=

Kill the Director

Soooo I decided to do a post about me because I have no idea what to write about.  So this one is about what genre of movies I like.  And if you know the song that I named the blog after, you’d already know what I mean.  ROM COMS!  I seriously have an addiction.  I’ve become proud of it now though.  And I embrace it.  I’m not afraid to admit it either….except maybe to people I’m just meeting….well this is awkward.  Because we’re probably just meeting…. I have to remember that explaining a joke makes it not funny…..

Sidenote: the song is Kill the Director by The Wombats (amazing band, look them up!)

Ok, so I guess I’ll talk about my addiction to Rom Coms and which ones I love the most.  Let’s gooooooooooo! (I stretch out letters a lot when I type.  So be forewarned that I do that a lot.)

Well I suppose I started loving Romantic Comedies a long time ago, but in the last few years I’ve watched almost all of the ones that look appealing to me on Netflix.  Oops.  Now all real men are probably ruined for me, because I want the ones from the movies.  Again, oops.  But I can’t help it, really.  It’s like a disease with the horrible (amazing) jokes and awful (adorable) romantic scenes swirling through my mind all the time.  When people ask me what I want to watch I usually respond “Comedy” but really, all I want is to watch a movie that makes me laugh until the last twenty minutes, where I cry, until I have my heart restored by the idea of true love (aka when they get back together after a fight).  So good!

So, I guess now I’ll talk about some favorites.  I think now my favorite favorite is “Love and Other Disasters” starring Brittany Murphy (RIP, I love her ❤ ).  It’s about a girl living in London (because I haven’t said it yet, I am obsessed with London and want to study abroad there and maybe live there?), so already off to a great start.  And she has two best friends, one gay and the other Donna from Doctor Who, who both make amazingly awkward and funny jokes.  Just watch the movie, worrrrrrrth it.  Anyway, she’s a fashion designer, and has a boyfriend she doesn’t love, as well as a new employe she finds rather attractive (after finding out he’s not actually gay, so she could date him, yay!).  I probably made it sound pretty dull but it does have great characters and witty writing in my opinion, and it wasn’t terribly inappropriate for being rated R. The only thing it’s missing is a pet cat.  Yep, then it would be a pretty ideal life, living in London, nice guy, she got to tango!  And great friends and a job she loves!  Just, again, needs the cat. 😀  Because I’m a crazy cat lady!  =^.^=

I also really liked an obscure movie I found on Netflix called “Happy Ever Afters”.  It was a hilarious movie starring Sally Hawkins.  It was about what ensues after two wedding receptions are held in the same hotel.  The weddings are not all as they seem, which you soon find out.  But this movie made me laugh out loud, because they would be in the middle of a conversation when someone would punch another person in the face.  I don’t know what happened half the time, but being a British comedy, I found it rather enjoyable.  I want to watch it again, but they took it off Netflix instant…sad day.
