My sister did a little arts and crafts for my mom’s birthday and I completely forgot to take a picture of it! Basically~
The centerpiece consisted of about 18” tall cylindrical glass vase, about 7” in diameter, filled with water and handful of purple flowers and 8 medium sized fishies~
Then there were the Thank You Cards. Yellow manila like coloured envelopes bought from staples with a petal shape close. Vellum for template. Lavender construction paper. Thank You stamp. Purple Ribbon. Super Glue. Let your imagination run wild. Man. in 30 minutes. Only about 12 cards or so, had their ribbons glued on and not.. loose. D: I wasn’t able to finish the other ones, and my sister rushed me out T.T
Apparently there were alot of compliments on the creativity of the centerpiece and cards. Though, I know my flaws in the cards, so I didn’t accept compliments x.x I have to admit though, the purple flowers were indeed pretty, but haha we can only hope the fishies can live with the flowers’ oxygen XD
I didn’t let you know about my driving test(s) huh. So as the previous statement said, it was definitely more than once. I went to Covina’s dmv, cause my friend told me it was easier, or more lenient. It appears, my luck didn’t prove much in that area..
So the first time, my speed was SLOW, drastically slow in that the proctor marked about 13 off in that area x.x
Second time, I made a HUGE BOO BOO. I almost killed the proctor and me. I didn’t notice the opposing car when I made the unprotected left turn x.x
Third time, I wasn’t even able to start the test, because he marked me off for not having a properly working left turn signal… T.T
I STUDIED and I WAS FOR CERTAIN I WAS GOING TO PASS on the third try.. but I wasn’t given the chance to even start. Sigh.
Then my dad yelled at me for having such bad luck at that dmv, and my luck in general was horrible. Then yelled at me for procrastinating. So now~ I have to take the written again ~o~ Sad.
Well, thats about it~ Finals is next week. Which means~ “Summer” will be here soon! Then! More projects!! Yaay~!
Night nights! ^^
Allan’s Birthday Party! Consisted of Movie + Dinner @ Carmines + Games + Drinking. I didn’t go to the movie~ so I won’t be talking about that. Dinner wasn’t too bad. It was way too filling, but then again we ate Italian and thus, alot of carbs. After that, we drove to Ralphs and picked up 12 pack blue moon, 6 pack smirnoff ice blackberry and lemonade (I think?) and southern comfort (didnt look at the ounces, but the large bottle.) Oh and 2 medium sized bottles of coke and 1 med sized sprite.
Ohh two cars, btw. The other car went back to his house. Okay, back to the story, after purchasing, we also went to allans house and we had a lot of stuff to carry upstairs, so we called all of them down (minus birthday boy, of course) and had them carry in some stuff XD and sung happy birthday + cake of cupcakes when he opened the door~~~
Then played game of things + drank (alot.) Southern Comfort + Coke was sweet, with Sprite it tasted almost like nothing (taste seemed to have nulled.)
We all stayed till about 1:20ish, then disperse, and haha.. the usual 5 of us stayed till late 2ish, and then home and didnt KO till 330ish.
Woke up around 7:30 for driving. Got some stuff done. Drove. Did alot of stupid things. My sister wasn’t helpful. She yelled at me alot of times thinking I’d understand what I’m doing wrong, when she wasnt really pointing out what it is that I was doing wrong. Then finally… I realised the day wasnt getting anywhere with her yelling at me and me yelling at her for yelling at me, that I told her, you give me the step by step process, I’ll follow, practice, rinse and repeat. And thats when she said alright. LOL YAY! =] So I learnt 3 point turn + parking!
Then study time with my group! What a disappointment! Sigh. Oh well. I guess to each his own. I’ll just have to find a way to work around it or with them. ~o~
Ahh its already this late!
On a last note, I’ve taken an interest in clay! XD I guess because you can bake it and it looks like the keychains they sell at stores! XD I <3 sculpting/modelling x3
Anyways! Good night!
You will always be my favourite <3
We finally learnt matrices in class (yesterday)! It was fantastic! I was, however, confuzzled for a good amount of time, because I don’t recall any sort of algebra (add/sub) in matrices. Common variables x,y,z and a,b,c and solve; I remember. I usually cheated the 3+ variables in linear equations with matrices. »
Shh.. don’t tell my professors ><
Anyways~ I think I have two more weeks of school left + 4 exams (including finals.) I’m tremendously terrified, as my professor insists on having the last exam on wednesday, and finals on thursday! Which makes things worse, cause the last exam is Chapter 11 and those are conics! D: Cursed graphs! >< Well.. I like seeing them, I just don’t like.. making them T.T
Hm. What else.
Hurray! I’m studying with a group on sunday (for the exam on Monday D: )! I would love to add extra time into studying as well, but Allan’s birthday is tomorrow! Which just so happens to be an all day event! Ahh!!
Sniffles. Well this is my 20 minutes write up for the week xD
Ah! It was Hakkun’s birthday yesterday! Happy Birthday!! =] Hope you have fun tomorrow @ your party!!

Haha! This is the best inspirational quote i’ve seen today! Enjoyed! =]
I honestly never realised summer could be this hectic!!! But of course, this is merely my procrastination at its best! Curse youuuu!! I will one day overcome you, and be better! D:
Anyhow.. I’ve slacked off a bit from my class in summer and all of a sudden my homework piled up. Plus the horrible, undeniable fact that my past 2 exams have been fails! I have.. 4 more (upcoming one is in 2 days! D:< ), and 1 final worth 30%. Sigh.
I must say, I really should start studying.. and doing my homework xD
Then there’s my driving test. I haven’t made a post on it cause.. it hasn’t happened. Heh. I’ve postponed it to 2 days prior to the end of the permit expiration date. Tuesday, July 24th. I truly hope I do not have an exam on that day, otherwise, I will have no choice but to calm myself down in both matters and study till my brain actually decides to grown its cells back!!!
No projects still. When I said I slacked off, I truly slacked off. I didn’t do anything productive in that missing slot of my day except watch anime. Which~
Accel World updated.. early Thursday.
I finished Kamisama no Memochou on sometime around 5, Thursday. It was amazing! Haha I expected it to have the same feel as eden of the east, because of the NEETs, but there wasn’t much action or thrill in it (except maybe the last episode.) There was alot of character development in Narumi, Ayaka, a bit in Yuuko and Soichiro and Masuda (Ramen shop owner). Yuuko was very moe, and detective like, which I admired. Soichiro is the caring yakuza sort that no one wants to mess with, but will always be a big brother when you need him. He definitely values relationships/friendship. Narumi definitely grew the most in the series; he wanted to be left alone and the only member in the computer club, but that one day while lost, he encountered a situation that lead him to meet a dangerous group, whom will be later named as the NEETs. I’m a bit saddened I didn’t get the backstory on Yuuko or other NEETs, well moreso on Yuuko. xD
But overall, it was enjoyable. They had a few cases to solve, and it was fun!
Started and finished Ookamisan to Shichinin no Nakamatachi on Thursday. It was adorable! Moe versus moe. An actually sweet girl with a sharp glare. A student council known as Otogi Bank. The main male lead has scopophobia but has really good aim. LOL It scared me when I caught the narration, the student council comprised of various sorts of characters, and a few fairytale references. I do like the student council policy though~
I started watching Yumeiro Patissiere up to episode 16~ today. I could’ve watched more if it hadn’t been for the fact that i fell asleep for 2.5 hours and woke up 1.5 hours late =(
But! I have to admit! Now I kinda want to make pastries! Well, I cant say I never had the urge to become a patissiere~ just it was not a priority for me in my childhood. LOL So! Oh my goodness~ Cream Puffs! Crepes! Choco Roll! Japanese Confectioneries! Strawberry Tarts! Cookies! Candy shaped Roses! Woooww.. I’m in heaven!!
Ah-ah. It’s already this late! >< I guess I’ll call it a night. Perhaps driving tomorrow and definitely finish my homework tomorrow + review!
Wish me luck! Good night! ^^
Hmm.. speaking of horror, I’m not updated at all with my movies! NOOOO! ><
Anyways! Less than a week away for my behind-the-wheel test!! I do not like! I fear! I’m nervous! Ahhhhh!!!! Panic!
But on the bright side~
Today, I went out to eat FTB Toast with Eric, which was “OMG FANTASTIC.” Haha! I made him eat the rest of my portion, since he told me to ask him to finish it =P He needs to fat anyways~ X] Then we walked around a bit in SG, went to Mitsuwa cause he wanted a “light meal” (onigiri) and finally, a short walk to see the ducks (Heh. I ended up pointing out the turtles instead xD.) Then home! =]
Oho~ I enjoy how during exam days, students gather to complain, compare, and contrast in our calculation/solution methods, thus, forming a small bond and continues from there. Its amazing, really!
I happen to.. befriend, I suppose.. a female classmate that’s rather talkative, but really nice.. and is a chem major. Not my kind of girl (to talk to), but she’s really social LOL. As for the other people that were talking around me~ I had already befriended them from the previous semester =]
We think we all failed, in case you were wondering xD
I suppose that’s it for updates. I’ll let you know how the driving goes tomorrow! I think my sister is taking me to WesCov T.T
Wish me luck! :3
I slacked off this weekend! The only thing that went right was the lunch date (and the starting of my homework early)!! But I wasn’t able to start/complete 1-2 projects! Nor was I able to play my games…! =(
On the bright side, I got to see Rebecca, Josh, and Tak today! Haha xD They introduced me to Beauty and the Beat by Todrick Hall, and I absolutely LOVED IT!
What a short story. =(
I think I might’ve made my friends angry! I didn’t do it intentionally, I was simply using her as a messenger, as he was doing the same. Only that.. i pushed it too far. Sorry!
I drove today around the city, almost. I was slow with my left turns, especially at the intersection. Ugh! As much as I want to practice with real courses, I don’t want people to hate me for my mistakes. Basically, what happened was I slow at starting, and so i took forever to turn left, even the guy behind me honked. Then he practically followed me down the next street, cut me off at a one lane, four way stop, a block before an intersection — which was where we met shortly after, he was going straight, and as i passed by him to get to the left turn lane, he honked and yelled something about “jesus.” He pissed me off, but the accumulation of my mistakes and him being a dick, my sister got maaaddd (and honked and yelled back at him). =X
So! Supposedly the week before was Dragon’s Festival (Or Dragon Boat Festival)~! The story goes, in summation, in my terms.. a general lost in a war (didn’t read to find out for what purpose) and commits suicide in the ocean. His country/men believed that by boating to that said spot and feeding the fish rice(?), they wouldn’t eat away at the dead body. So! We make chinese tamales! Anyways~ in late celebration of it, we made it today - my mom and i. It took nearly 4 hours! I dont know how many we made, but it was ALOT. Of course, like always, mine were tiny. LOL
Ah~ Its cooking at the moment too~ haha~ I’m so excited to see how it’ll taste~! x3
It probably wouldn’t make sense, but here:
I attempted to wrap embroidery thread around clothespins, and I just realised I lacked consistency haha! xD It was something I picked up from Heatherjslife.
If anyone noticed, yes, I was supposed to be doing my homework XD
Ooh~ I think I’ll add this too. Just a small note, because I’m sure he wouldn’t want me to tell the whole world, unless it was him who was doing it himself. My ex called me last night and told me he fell in love with a married lady while he was studying abroad. Mixed emotions, I feel. Happy yet jealous. Hopeful yet disgusted. I don’t know~ haha. Just, I don’t think what she did was right, when she had a hubby, and he shouldn’t have fallen in “love” so easily ——- I will NEVER say this to his face. So hush. =X
Currently listening to: The Band Perry - If I Die Young
Thinking about: Topics to talk about for tomorrow’s lunch date.. x.x;
Bitter note: Ahh.. stated above!!
Hope you enjoyed the pic~! x3
~back to me noww~! =]
July 4th is coming~! Hurrah~! Its too bad, cause I don’t think I’m doing anything that day. Sigh.
Let’s see, what else. Ah!
I’m planning on taking my english assessment on the 3rd~ =] Hmm..
The inevitable behind the wheel test will be on the thursday after next, the 12th. Ah!
I’ve become recently obsessed with Muse~ especially, “Resistance,” “Unintended,” and “Uprising” Haha. It’s sad how I can’t share my new found love with my friends.. especially in regards to how I think Resistance is a song about George Orwell’s 1984~. On the other hand, I’m glad the internet has agreed with me xD
I have about 2 more days left. I hope to finish my homework before it reaches 9P tonight. So I can get started on my project. I would tell you what it is, had it not been for the fact that I’m indecisive!
Hmm.. Yesterday, we went over the section about trigonometric identities, and it was amusing for some odd reason. Maybe cause it was an easy day xD Anyhow, our professor asked us what was the difference between “Stand and Deliver” and “Good Will Hunting” - no one answered - then he added “one’s a genius, and one’s a teacher” - but - “the genius solved an simple factoring problem that no one was able to solve” and “the teacher taught his students all the way up to calculus” —- “THAT is the difference.”
Who would’ve known? I think I watched those movies during the time I didn’t pay too much attention to errors in movies lol.
Anyways, back to trig identities. His usual method of teaching is explain the basic idea of a section, refer to even numbered problems and occasionally he’ll allow us to do it ourselves. Yesterday, he explained a bit, did the first few even numbers, then gave us about a minute or two each problem afterwards for us to simplify. It was adorable! It was like a race! Granted, I tend to not pay attention to people I don’t know, so I only looked to the person in front of me, Rubbles, and the one to the right of me, Davi. And it was amazing! Absolutely amazing!! Rubbles also treated it like a race; finished the problem and looked around to see if anyone else he knew was finished. Davi, got it right about 80% of the time, and if they caught each others eye while he was working, Davi would tell him to shut up and Rubbles would smile and laugh. It was kinda cute! Haha!
Ooh~ I logged onto Gmail yesterday, and caught Coco online! I haven’t talked to him in ages so it was fun talking to him again. He was in the middle of building a list for his friend who wanted to build a computer. I asked for more details and explanations. He emailed me a wish list and explained what each did, how the specifications differed, etc. Obviously, I’m not going to explain all of that in this entry cause it’ll just be longer than I intended =P
Shortly after that, he stumbled onto Super Dimension Fortress Macross and we both fell in love with it~ <3 Haha we’re such mecha nerds <3
Today I learnt of MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena), genre for LoL (League of Legends), GB (Gunbound), and such.
That’s about it. Not much interaction today~ bye byes!
