Hint: Favourite Color

If you got this right, I’m impress! Only people who cares enough about me would know my favorite color lol. Well.. I kinda mention it on my twitter anyways… but whatever!

I feel like my creative writing skills has gone down the drain. Or was it ever there in the first place? I’ve tried writing out many things but they just don’t come out right. So to get my head running, I guess I’ll write something on Hoshiru. It might be unrelated, but it always help get my mind running.

So yesterday I went to David Choi and Clara C concert. It was great! But I’ll write more about that later @_@ hopefully while it’s still fresh in my mind. But anyways, right after the concert a friend of mine, Max and I decide to go grab some bubble tea and have a chat.

My friend broke up with her boyfriend awhile ago, but recently she started dating another guy. Somehow she told me, ‘I’m just waiting for him to get tired of me”. It kinda makes me sad when she says that. I understand that she doesn’t want to allow herself to ‘fall too much in love’ again like she did with her last relationship, but the way she puts it is as if she’s not ready to be in a new relationship. It sounds as if she can’t trust her new boyfriend to love her for the way she is. But her choice is hers, and the guy she’s dating doesn’t seem to be a bad guy at all. I’ve known him from the game club, though he’s always been quite a mystery to me lol.

The funny thing is that she asked me and Max.. “don’t you guys ever get tired of each other?” Well.. I wouldn’t call it tired of each other. Honestly, its kinda hard for me to overdose on Max. This is why I tell people, such thing as ‘the friend zone’ doesn’t exist. I would never date someone who can’t even be my friend. I don’t want a relationships based only on flings and affection… those don’t last long, and they never well. Meanwhile, if you can be friends with your significant other, times where you might not feel as affectionate, you’ll still enjoy your time with them as friends.

It’s not that Max and I never got into arguments or have those moments where we don’t feel like seeing each other. But the longer we date, the more we learn from our mistakes. In my case, I am lucky. Max is the type of guy who’ll try to communicate. He would usually tell me what I did to upset him, or what kind of things upset him in general. That wasn’t always the case, but somehow.. I don’t know, we just started doing that. Some things we complain to each other about is something that we can’t change either. Things that are ‘just the way we are’. When that comes up, you just have to start thinking of it in a different point of view. Understand each other.. No ones perfect, but if you can come to adapt with each everything will be fine.

I’m no love doctor, but life is about live in learn.

this is so off topic.. lol

Well anyways, I’m writing my major admission essay right now.

I really don’t know how to appeal myself to the faculty. To make them trust me and believe that I’ll make good use of what their department offers. I’m asking myself.. well what is it that you want to do in the department anyways? What is it that you want out of it? What do you want to do in the future? What lead you to join it in the first place?

AHHH~~~ .__. Writing is so hard.


Oppa Gangnam Style

So week 1 of school is done, 10 or so more to go until winter break.. Yay~! So as you know, I’ve been extremely nerveous of how my classes are going to be like this quarter. After the first week, I think I’ll be able to manage them perfectly fine. Most of my homework consist of reviewing lecture materials and readings. I’m not too used to this style of studying. For the previous major I intended in applying for, most of my classes required the sit, understand the material, practice style of studying. For my current classes it’s more like sit, understand the material, review it on regular bases/think more about it (relate it to your own daily life). Anywho.. this not really the point of me writing this entry so I’ll move on to the main point.

Introduction to Communications I

One of the two core classes to enter the communications major here at the UW. I took Intro to Com II last quarter and it was a blast. I loved the content, I loved the teacher; I just loved the class over all. I am hoping that I’ll feel the same way with this class. On the first day we started off with a little survey about ourselves. He asked us questions like “favourite TV show”, “favourite song”, etc. I filled mine in and it was pretty meh, since I know that he would probably have no idea what I wrote down are anyways.

For the next part of class, our prof. (I gave him the nickname Prof. Dunkey) starts showing us videos on Youtube asking us whether we know it or not. I knew some.. many I didn’t really. For the last one, he asked everyone to stand up– he told us “Let’s see if you know what I want you to do”.

Then here it comes…

Buaaa pa pa pa~ ♫

Oppa Gangnam Style  ♫ !!

I was like … -facedesk- a ton of people start dancing to it, including me lol. I can’t help but be so embarrass though. Ugh.  Non the less.. still a great way to start up a class. Oppa Gangnam Style is more of my style than Adele. So I didn’t mind it.

Japanese 400

もう四年目の日本語クラスか… 信じられない。 あたしのばかな趣味はこうになるのは、なんか…すごい(笑)。ばかな趣味と言っても、将来に日本語について職業をしたいと思ってるわよ。実はこのクラスは難しいかどうか本当に怖かったけど、この一週間は悪くなかったから、たぶん大丈夫だと感じる。たくさんの三年生の友達が同じクラスを取ってるし、ひろし先輩も同じクラスを取ってる、みんなは手伝ってあげるから、心配しなくてもいいよね~

I still can’t believe I am in Japanese 400… my silly hobby has gotten me so far :’) ! That said, I’m hoping in the future I can do some Japanese <=> English translation work so its not that silly right?! I know I shouldn’t be, but I was still super surprise to see many of my classmates from 3rd year taking 4th year with me. Alot of them are the people that I’ve actually talked to before too. Somehow seeing them before class made me feel so much relief. So far I can see how this class is going to be much harder than 3rd year, but with all my friends in class.. I think it’ll be manageable!!

Communications and Differences

 I’ll admit.. I fell asleep on the first day of this class. I can’t help it Dx this class is from 2:30-4:20.. That is like my perfect nap time!!! At first I felt like my teacher was extremely disorganize. Her first lecture seemed pretty off topic, or I should say, off the mood of ‘first day’ classes. She pretty much jumped right into content, without a introduction or syllabus overview. Though she did do a syllabus overview by the end of class, I had a pretty bad feeling about the class overall. I was afraid it wouldn’t be my style.

However on the 2nd day of class, everything seemed much more structured and… fun! (Maybe it was because managed to stay awake the entire class) So now that I have a better feeling about how the class runs, I think I’m going to like it a lot (base on the syllabus).

 

So far so good. I hope this quarter is going to be a good one. I hope I perform well this quarter too. I still have to write my application to apply for my major. I think my only down point is my overall GPA at the UW is pretty bad.. so much stress >___< Ah ah ahhhh! I hope I make it in. I hope.. I hope.. I will…


First day of school Autumn2012

Things to not forget before leaving home:

  1. have your pencil, pen, notebooks. No textbooks this quarter!
  2. Japanese class print out
  3. phone
  4. sync iPod -> include class schedule into pictures!
  5. smile!

I am overly nervous for this year’s first day of school. Maybe its because I’m taking a 400 level class for the first time. That expectation aura coming from it is kinda scaring me. It’s okay.. I have a friend to lean on in Japanese class at least >__<. First days should be fun! Hope my classes are alright.


Saturdays~

Today was really just another day. The night before I slept very early so today I woke up so early. I probably woke up around 9:30 or so, yeah… pretty early for me haha. I was quite sad today because it was sunny but I had to go work. Originally, I wasn’t supposed to go work today because there’s a matsuri going on at school today. But because I told my dad it was on Sunday and no Saturday (I screwed up) I ended up having to work on Saturday and got Sunday off instead.. Silly me.

Today at work over all was quite fine. Max and Aaron surprised me! I really though my day was just going to end typically, hahaha~

When I got home I finally got to play LoL with my friend James. lol~ He said that he was bad, but he wasn’t THAT bad. Well, plus the fact that we were playing with Zach and his friends + James. So embarrassing Dx How am I to face him now during Japanese class.

Talking about Japanese class, I can’t wait to get my test scores back.. and talking about my test scores, my LING midterm #2 I got above average!! 😀 YES! For once I got above average. You have no idea how happy I am lol.

well~ super sleepy cuz its super late~..

おやすみ~
