She said it was all make believe
but I thought she said maple leaves
A few words
"When we describe the Moon as dead, we are describing the deadness in ourselves. When we find space so hideously void, we are describing our own unbearable emptiness."
―D.H. Lawrence

"Is the meaning of life defined by its duration? Or does life have a purpose so large that it doesn't have to be prolonged at any cost to preserve its meaning?"

"Living is not good, but living well. The wise man, therefore, lives as well as he should, not as long as he can... He will always think of life in terms of quality not quantity... Dying early or late is of no relevance, dying well or ill is... even if it is true that while there is life there is hope, life is not to be bought at any cost."
―Seneca

"People will tell you nothing matters, the whole world's about to end soon anyway. Those people are looking at life the wrong way. I mean, things don't need to last forever to be perfect."
―Daydream Nation

"All Bette's stories have happy endings. That's because she knows where to stop. She's realized the real problem with stories― if you keep them going long enough, they always end in death."
―The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes

"The road now stretched across open country, and it occurred to me - not by way of protest, not as a symbol, or anything like that, but merely as a novel experience - that since I had disregarded all laws of humanity, I might as well disregard the rules of traffic. So I crossed to the left side of the highway and checked the feeling, and the feeling was good. It was a pleasant diaphragmal melting, with elements of diffused tactility, all this enhanced by the thought that nothing could be nearer to the elimination of basic physical laws than deliberately driving on the wrong site of the road."
― Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

Quick picture post
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
I had pictures hiding out on my phone and I kept forgetting to upload them...

Romance-y couples' journals.


Something I saw on the posting board at school.


Self heating soup! I got the asparagus one but haven't tried it yet.


Sometimes poster/jewelry sellers come to the school and just set up in the quad. I had some extra time to kill before one of my classes so I took a look at their wares. Not sure what language this is in.


Monday through Friday (though hopefully this is my last week) I volunteer from 7:30-9 AM in the Child Development Center on campus. Usually I prep breakfast and then hang around with the kids until I have to leave. A catering company delivers the breakfast, so most of the time I just have to cut it up/heat it/pour it into a bowl (depending on what it is) and cut up some fruit, as well as fill pitchers with water and milk. Oatmeal was on the menu one of the days last week and this is what it looked like after I plopped it out of the container from the fridge...


My boyfriend and I went to a Petsmart to get some stuff for his rats, and I got a picture of this chinchilla. It was just hanging out like this with its head sticking out the doorway, looking like a grumpy dude.

They had a really adorable hamster in another cage, and it made me miss having a hamster. I'm happy with my budgies though. They're much more interesting than hamsters. :P

The cutlery at the Child Development Center is kind of just thrown into a drawer in a disorganized way, so I generally use whichever knife is a good enough size to cut what I'm prepping. Not sure what this knife is for (cheese, perhaps?) but I thought it had an interesting shape. Kinda like a little mini scimitar.


Another one from the CDC. It was like this when I got there, I just noticed and thought it was a bit funny.

A dress, a game, some other stuff

Whoa, it's Monday already?
Monday, January 21, 2013
I can't believe I keep going so long without writing anything. o_o

Lemme think... I started playing Pokemon FireRed on an emulator and I've kind of been consumed by it.

That got kicked off because I watched THIS several times in a row. It's fairly disturbing so if that puts you off, here's a brief summary: a kid dressed as a Jigglypuff goes to Prof. Oak and picks a Charmander, then asks what's going to happen to Bulbasaur. Prof. Oak zones out and you see that he's a Pokemon hoarder and his house is filled with filthy, suffering Pokemon. Basically like what animal hoarders do in real life except cartoonized and with some uh... "humor" I guess.

Anyway, the whole time I've been playing I've had that animation in the back of my mind, which makes things slightly uncomfortable.

What else what else what else... Oh, I tried dill pickle soup the other day. It was actually really yummy and I want to get some more. If you've never heard of it, it's like... a creamy mostly potato soup with chunks of potato and other veggies (mine just had carrots) and pieces of dill pickle. The pickle comes through really subtly so there's this very pleasant slight sourness.

My ex's birthday was on Saturday. I meant to draw something and mail it to him but I couldn't think of anything to draw and ended up writing a poem instead. It's been really difficult for me to draw lately... I just don't have the drive to do it or any ideas anymore. It makes me kinda sad, because it used to be something I really liked. I dunno, maybe one day it'll come back to me...

YESSSSS I CAUGHT SNORLAX.

A really belated picture/stuff from stores
Saturday, January 12, 2013
On New Year's Eve our family friends brought over one of those cakes in a box type deals and we tried it with chocolate fondue... I wouldn't eat it again, it was pretty dry and not very tasty, although it looked pretty.


I went to an asian grocery store with my dad, and they had some interesting offerings...

Chinese spaghetti sauce. Real appetizing, right?

Essence of chicken drink.

This sounds like it's probably just a chicken broth you're supposed to drink straight as it is, but the name is kind of weird.

My student ID card expired in December, so I need to get a new one, but when I looked at the line to get them this past week I decided it was probably better to wait...


At CVS there was this uh... I guess it's a toy... on the holiday clearance rack.


For whatever reason, I found the description amusing. Also, the elf's voice sounds like Gumby, if you're familiar with the character.

I went with my boyfriend to that same asian market, and we were over by the prepackaged meat section because he wanted to check it out. We were looking at the various offerings and pointing them out, when suddenly he exclaimed, "PORK UTERUS?" I thought he was just kidding at first, but...


They also have weird vegetarian options, though. Here we see a frozen vegetarian half chicken.


There was also vegetarian Peking duck in a can, which I did not take a picture of.

Last night my boyfriend and I got rice porridge (my family calls it jook because we're Cantonese) from a place next to the asian market. My boyfriend also got some dim sum, so he ate the dim sum first and left half his jook to eat later. Well, when we were at his apartment later that night, he reheated his jook and was eating it while I played Titan Quest. I was fighting a boss monster, and I guess I was dying, so he reached over to press a key to give me a potion and accidentally knocked his hot cup of jook right into his lap.

So... He leapt up, screaming, and started dancing around the room, emitting what SOUNDED LIKE laughter. I was really confused, and it was making me kind of nervous, so I laughed too. Oops. Turns out it burnt his crotch and he was in a lot of pain. He ran to the bathroom (or well, kind of did a hopping jig to there) to put some cool water on it, while repeatedly saying "it burns so much!"

See, if this was in a movie, it would definitely have been a comical scene. Unfortunately it was in real life, so it was just bad. After the pain had subsided enough for him to come back out, he was like "YOU LAUGHED AT ME! AND YOU KILLED THE MONSTER BEFORE YOU CAME TO HELP ME!"

I didn't laugh at him because I thought it was funny he was hurt. D: And also, I killed the monster before I registered what was happening. Besides that though, I wanted to help, but I just didn't know what to do. He doesn't have anything at his apartment that would really be super effective on burns, so all I could do was ask if he wanted me to get him some ice, and he didn't respond the first few times I asked.

...When I told my mom what happened, she started lecturing me on how I shouldn't put hot things on tables where they could be knocked over and how I shouldn't laugh at people in pain. What the hell. If I recount events of anything bad that happens, she immediately starts antagonizing me and scolding me about how I shouldn't be doing things like in the story I'm telling. It doesn't even matter what role I played in it, as long as I was somehow present. I swear, if I told her something like "I was at my friend's house and Friend A accidentally walked into Friend B, causing Friend B to trip and break a plate," my mom would be like "WELL YOU SHOULD BE LESS CLUMSY!" and glare at me angrily. It would probably be funny if it weren't so annoying.

Really belated first post of the year
Tuesday, January 8, 2013
So it occurred to me that I never posted my pictures of what I gave my boyfriend for Christmas. It wasn't anything too fancy, just some practical stuff for his apartment, but I might as well share.

This is a storage box that doubles as a stool. It's actually really sturdy, though you wouldn't expect that just by looking at it.


Inside I put a few cleaning supplies, a candle, and some food items...


The card I made for him.


And here it is all wrapped up.


It felt more like a care package than a Christmas gift, but I know he appreciated it.

Maybe some of you noticed, but Google removed the + function from their search engine and it's really screwing up the way I search for things. I look for a fair number of obscure or hard to find songs, and for awhile I couldn't understand why I was getting such crappy and unwanted results. Welp... now I know.

Google just keeps getting worse.

...After much searching, I sort of found what I was looking for... Unfortunately it was on Megaupload, so all I got was a message from the FBI saying it was gone. -__-

Disneyland + Mochi
Sunday, December 30, 2012
Just got back from a trip down to LA/Disneyland.

I don't have many pictures of Disneyland, but here are a few of the Mad T thing they have in the California Adventures Park. It's sort of like a rave spin on Alice in Wonderland...


Live music they were playing...


Really neat entryway.


We went to a Mexican chain restaurant called Don Chente the day after Disneyland. They had basically nothing I could eat there, since they cooked with lard, so I ended up walking with my boyfriend to this little place called Arry's. I got fried zucchini and french fries, but didn't realize the portions would be so large...


Today before we left southern California we went to my uncle's church, where they were making mochi soup. I got a few pictures of the pounding process.


It's a mostly Japanese American church, so my boyfriend was one of the few white guys there. They invited him to pound the rice for the mochi.


Here he is posing in a manly fashion with the er... mochi-pounding... mallet... thingy.


At the dinner with my extended family on Thursday night, my adopted second cousin (who's a freshman in high school) thought my boyfriend was 26 and I was 17. Even with the beard, I think he's a bit babyfaced, so I was surprised. We were quite amused, in any case. I didn't think I looked THAT young... Anyway, after we learned what she thought our ages were, it made more sense that she kept looking over at us with a weird expression during dinner.

I think having my boyfriend there made the trip much better. I wouldn't have enjoyed it very much, if at all, if it was just me and my family.

Grades!
Saturday, December 22, 2012
I got all As! Yay! And I even got an A+ in the class I was so afraid I would get a B in. Double yay!

Another 4.0 quarter. Unfortunately, my GPA will always be haunted by my first semester grades at St. John's, so while my cumulative GPA for community college is 3.98 (Curse you, A- in General Oceanography!), my overall GPA with transfer grades factored in is 3.93. :\ When I applied to a university recently I reported my GPA as 3.98, so I hope they don't have a problem with that...

I saw The Hobbit last night with friends. At first we went to an AMC, but the theatre was so crowded that we couldn't find seats together. We ended up getting a refund and going to a different theatre, which was practically empty. It was a little more expensive, but it's also a much larger theatre with a bigger screen. I remember going to see the first Pokemon movie there when I was in third grade, and standing in a line that went around the outside of the building to get in... They were giving out free shiny Pokemon cards with the tickets.

The movie was decent, I thought. I had some issues with the timeline concerning the dwarven occupation of Moria, but after the movie we looked it up on Wikipedia in Jasper's car and it was resolved. See, in Lord of the Rings, the fellowship goes to Moria, and there aren't any dwarves there, but Gimli says there will be, and in The Hobbit, which happens sixty years prior to Lord of the Rings, they say that Moria has already fallen... So I didn't understand how Gimli could be saying there would be dwarves there if it had been abandoned for over sixty years. It turns out that Gimli was talking about a colony that had attempted to set up in Moria, but the colony failed.

...Anyway. I have some pictures that have been accumulating on my phone...

At the child development center/preschool I've been volunteering at, one of the families of the kids put on a dance show...

Of course, being as young as they are, the kids didn't have the patience to sit through the whole thing and got very antsy towards the end.

I went to Fresh & Easy with my parents, and apparently all the potatoes there are individually shrink wrapped.


My dad insisted the guy on this box was a woman, and said "look, there are boobs!"


At one of the local asian markets, I was looking through the bakery section and they had these...


And finally, one of the kids at the school gave me a present! It's a snowman shaped cake pop.

Judging by the lumpiness of the pop I'm guessing it's homemade, which is really impressive.

I also got bars of scented soap in a bag and a tin of asian cookies as gifts from the kids. Not individualized gifts or anything, just the kind that all the teachers get. Still I was surprised, since I totally didn't expect to get anything.

Oh, and on Friday, one of the three year old girls told me I was her favorite teacher. I felt so special. :) I also had two kids kinda fighting to sit on my lap during story time, and a couple more on the sides just sitting next to me. It's a nice feeling.

I'm still not done Christmas shopping... agh. Need to get one or two more things for my boyfriend and something for my dad...

Oh, they brought the old embed code back

When you're ten miles up and you're coming down
You won't feel a thing when you hit the ground
You'll just come apart and it's like you never were


I think I maybe didn't get enough sleep, because I feel awful this morning. And my dad bought me patchouli soap and I accidentally left my jacket on top of it so I smell like a hippie now. :\

---Edit---

I have extended hours with the child development center I volunteer at this week, so I'm spending four hours in the morning there, and today one of the little three year old boys said the cutest things to me. First he wanted me to play with him by following him to certain places on a "ride," then he poked my leg with a stick and we pretended I was a chicken and he was checking my doneness, and finally he said I was one of his favorite teachers. (Awwwww)

He also picked up some bark from the ground and gave it to me and told me not to lose it "forever" and that I had to try "as much as his daddy loves him."

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

I left the bark in the classroom though. As special a gift as it was, I can't really do anything with it. (And I'm pretty sure he won't remember anyway tomorrow)
