Lazy Days...
Tuesday. 2.19.08 12:56 pm
Hooray, we have a whole week off. I was going to start looking for work today, but it's already noon and I don't think I have much time for job-hunting what with the time squeeze. Time squeeze, you ask? Because I need at least two hours for travel, my mother gets off work at about 5pm, and I need to be home or at least able to give her a definitive answer on where I am whenever it is she calls me. Instead, I may actually do the household chores for once.

[ooh, don't forget to buy Baush&Lomb contacts solution...]

Why two hours? Why not anywhere near my house or somewhere nearer with less time wasted on the train? Because starting next week, I'll be taking night classes. So I am looking for daytime part-time. Why only part? When else will I open my books and start, let alone, finish my assignments! My schedule is now a bit of a time crunch.

I'm thinking of getting late morning to early afternoon shifts. That way, I have a few hours in the morning for books, travel?, work, travel?, books/lunch-dinner, class.

I also have to re-study. I registered for the March SAT. Yes, I've already taken it. This is just for my uncle who is an asshole. Just to make sure I get the best score I could possibly get and have something to throw back at him when he gives me his "I'm a genius/THE genius of the family" speech again. Which is a definite. Unlike other, well, most things in my life.

In other news, a beloved celebrity is dead. I can't believe it. She has been a staple in the culture for a very long time. We knew it was coming, of course, but it doens't make it less sad. I'm not crying or anything, but I'm sure her daughter is and the girl is around my own age. Poor dear.

Now I am off to my fridge...perhaps I'll re-heat the two-day-old Mickey D Filet o' Fish...

MY CHINESE FANGIRLS!
Friday. 2.15.08 8:43 am
RANDOM, DO NOT READ. You'll kill me >.> And I don't want to die just yet. Not at this moment anyway.


How many trilingual people do you know? (Besides me, of course. ;P)



Cute vid, no? And...aren't they so awesome?! *gush* Taiwanese shuai ge who are (supposedly) trilingual. Their Cantonese is demonstrated in this next vid:



Almost accent-less. ;) I think that is really great. Now if only their English is just as good...or is that asking too much? Heaven knows my Mandarin is really lacking these days. I don't speak it as much or as well as I used to. XD True and sad. I've really got to talk to more than just myself these days...>.>;;

Question is: Can they converse trilingually?

Hahaha! I recently looked up this video site specially for anything asian and found the drama Reaching for the Stars made back in 2005. Watched it, found the guy interesting (acting better than most pop idols these days), and storyline was nice. Looked him up and found out he was the elder of twin brothers in a pop group called 2moro. Sadly, I haven't been able to find any recent info. on them. Of course, there's the language barrier as always. x_x My fault. XD

Alright, last vid:



----------------------------------

I spelled 'their' wrong twice. 'They're' instead of 'their'. What is wrong with me?Don't bother looking cuz I fixed it. x_x Hoo, boy...

More anguish...this time, the public kind. ;)

Noooooooo-wheh. Uuuuuuug-heh.

I can't believe I missed the Austen series for so many weeks. It was Pridfe & Prejudice this week...TT.TT

Well, I got a new backpack. ;) I've been wanting one. A small one cuz I've got three huge ones, one of which I've used for three yrs and plus? It's dirty and a large pocket mirror had cracked in it, so there are shards of glass in the side pocket. >.>

Maybe I'll find a pic. I dunno if I should keep it or exchange for the brown one. Mine is yellow--as in sunshine yellow, plus white to contrast the parts that have a pattern on it. It's Jansport. Maybe ya'll can find it, cuz I really don't got the time to look and post link/pic.

See ya!

Found it. That was quick. XD Off to bed~~~!

No, you have not gone into the future through this stupid entry.

I am only here to tell you of my newwwwww upcoming performance! Who wants to come visit me, eh? Eh? No one? Shucks, ya'll are just a bunch a LOSERS! No, no, I didn't mean that! Please don't kill me, noooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Eh-hem. Anyway, it will be the sixteenth and the seventeenth in NYC (where else?).

Maybe I'll include a picture...

Not much to regret
Monday. 1.28.08 12:43 am
The concert/opera was good. Chinese history that I would otherwise never learn because American Education is enlightening that way. ^-^

If you want to know more about what it was about, say so.

I need to get up and at it early tomorrow morning. First, off to my grandmother's, then a little walk to my 9am meeting. Of course, I have to bother my grandmother because technically, I'm not 18 yet. (Chinese years, I am nineteen.) So she has to tag along. And I will probably hear her nag at me about it, early morning interferences when she has plans--going to the Senior Center for lunch and hanging with her sweet old lady friends.

And it is 1am. I HAD NOT planned on sleeping so 'late', but as we all know, life does not go as planned. I came home, checked my email, saw that 2008 is a very bad year for my animal, got saddened, then accepted it (like I always do, I'm very adaptable), and now I am ready to sleep.

I, more likely than not, will not have time to go blogging tomorrow so I am risking her highness's wrath to get this down and out into cyberspace.

Plus, I have decided I love Clinique and will go with no other brand for skincare (at least facially) until proven otherwise. I have been using the two dramatically diffferent moisturizing gel samples years before it came out commercially (is that right?). Loooved it~~(as Wheezie says--more on that later).

Good night.

Nooooooo!

I'm going to miss another edition of The Complete Jane Austen.
*sigh*

Instead, I'm going to a concert tonight. Now, now, before you go all "That's great!" and so on and so on. I'm not saying ti's not a good thing. I just realized this about...well, less than an hour ago. And I'm just a bit bummed out. Can anyone out there record it for me? XD Pleeeeease?

Even if it's not tonight, as long as I get to watch it. ;) Well, don't tell me to wait more than a few weeks, a month. If you are, thanks for the wanting to, but I'd rather try and find it on YouTube. But then again...if I DON'T find it, I'll have to wait six months for a re-run so...do it anyway?! XD *cackle*

More about the concert It's called 'Farewell My Concubine'. I think. Yeah, that should be right. Anyway, it's by the something Chinese Opera Foundation. Apparently the opera will be sung in English or French. *shrug* ??

So we've got four tickets (and neither paid us ) and two different groups to sit with. My ma says we won't stick with either pair until we know which are the better seats. Not only that, she has to pick which set of friends to sit with. *shrug*

It's from 8pm-10pm. Masterpiece Theater starts at 9. *pout* Ah, well.

Ah, crap! Now I gotta find clothes to wear. NO jeans. *sigh* It's at Alice Tully Hall by Lincoln Center (<--a.k.a. home to New York City Ballet) Hee hee, real close to my place. ;) Oh, shoot! I don't know you people. What if you come to stalk me? Or get someone to stalk me? Ok, people. I am not worth the half mill. you spend to send a guy over to New York City, got it? I should be able to die in peace! Not in the eye by a silencer in the hands of an experienced stalker/assasin.

Thanks. Peace!

(go smilies!)
