I’m not sorry there’s nothing to save.

16 January 2010

Today, something beautiful happened. I found myself in contact with a rather speedy cable internet connection and decided to sort of ‘seize the day’ and just have at it, and so I downloaded Vuze and downloaded more within two hours than I did in the last two months combined. I finally got The Fame Monster, the New Moon soundtrack, the Where the Wild Things Are soundtrack, the new Vampire Weekend album Contra, the Ke$ha album (which was for my sister, really), both Glee compilations, a Neon Indian album, and Zombieland is still downloading as I type. And it feels beautiful to be doing this right now. I promise to delete everything one day and rebuild my library legally, but this is all I can manage for now. Besides, it’s not like the big music executives are going bankrupt or anything.

Anyway, this downloading process occurred simultaneously with insane Facebooking and microblogging to an extent that I haven’t quite done since early October, during the last days of our home DSL connection. During this time I also managed to go on the Canon and Nikon websites to check out potential cameras for when I finally raise enough funds. For this same reason I also went on the Apple site and ‘built my own Macbook Pro’, which costs about $2,600 with all the added upgrades. I really do love looking up potential material possessions. Though such habits only reflect on me negatively as they exhibit my lust for worldly things, we only live once, and living only once renders our lives insignificant. Einmal est keinmal.

And, while on all these different site, getting myself excited for series four of Skins (which comes out on the 28th — I am so excited!) and reading through missed posts on Hipster Runoff, I realised that I haven’t really made a decent blog post in a very long time. This is why I am making this entry now.

Since the last time I wrote a decent post, some things have changed. I have reverted back to the status of she who does not like anyone right now, which is a good break from the last semester, which has been pretty much useless aside from the fact that I now know that not everyone who you think is your friend really is. I don’t miss the company that I used to have last year, at least not anymore, after realising that there are so many other people who are much better. Really, there’s nothing great in surrounding yourself with negative company. I try to be surrounded by positive people who are also smart and hip and cool. 

I still love typography and wish to learn as much about it as possible, but I have to focus on the second semester. SATs are next week, I have to fill out my high school resume and come up with a list of thirty schools for my guidance counselor, I still have to decide whether or not to watch American Idol this season, and I’m beginning to wonder why Noah Cyrus is becoming culturally relevant because she looks thirty years old and is just plain weird. Also, I have a shitload to do for Monday, all of which will be postponed for tomorrow night since I’m currently in my grandparents’ house which, unlike my house, has cable TV, cable internet, and a working air conditioner. And a hot shower! One day I plan on owning this house and converting the shed in the backyard into an art studio. Oh yeah, I want to do art now. And be an artist. It would be quite nice.

More later on.

O Hai Murakami.

19 June 2009

Since I am the world’s laziest arsehole and I have absolutely nothing to write about (really, nothing) I shall now end this by saying a few things about what I have read and seen in the past week or so.

I actually liked the whole Edward-and-Bella story and it was definitely worth reading for me. HATERS TO THE LEFT. I’m currently reading Murakami, and it’s pretty damn good, though I’m taking it a lot slowly than the Meyer books.

I’ve also been spending a lot of time on ohnotheydidnt, which is a LJ community. It’s pretty hilarious, that place. I’m absolutely proud of myself for being part of the #gokeyisadouche revolution.

So, I posted a reading list a few days ago and I need recommendations.

Okay, bye. I’m on Twitter.

Growing impatient.

24 May 2009

a.k.a. another random entry about nothing

I have decided to write a new “About Me” on Facebook. Although it doesn’t really show much about me aside from my perky/weird/angry side, it’s a lot better than the old “About Me” which was composed entirely of other people’s quotations.

I find it strange that even though last week’s concert felt like one of my greatest dreams had been realised, I didn’t really bother to write about it. I don’t even have an album on Facebook. I guess watching the Davids — and Michael — live served as some sort of closure to my Idoling, which is good, considering how much AI destroyed my life in the past year.

—Side note:: YAY, PAPA KRIS WON!! I knew he could do it!!—

Earlier, I paid a visit to Tyler Shields’ portfolio yet again and I saw this photo of Juno Temple (left). For some strange reason, it made me so inexplicably happy. I don’t think it’s because i like blood. It’s a pretty dramatic photo, not unlike the rest of Tyler Shields’ work.

Tyler Shields’ awesomeness aside, the fact still stands that I still can’t whistle or ride a bike. Yesterday while watching Teeth I got pretty annoyed watching that blonde chicken cruncher Dawn on her bicycle. Because I really can’t bike to save my life. It’s depressing.

And a few more random updates..

  • the Singapore trip in October is happening for sure.
  • Angels and Demons is an awesome movie.
  • Teeth is freaky. I finally got to watch it.
  • I haven’t done any real Math work since the portfolio. Hence, I am screwed.
  • NINE. MORE. DAYS. OF. SCHOOOL.♥

This is all I have to say for now since I have a ton of more important things to do.

And I *finally* touched David Cook.

And I got two guitar picks. One of them happens to be Andy Skib’s.♥

I’m in pain.

13 May 2009

Took a day off school because I have the flu. No, not the swine flu.

Because I have the flu, I am in pain. Everything hurts. I can barely breathe, and every time I do, my ribs start to hurt. My fingers, my shoulders, everything.

And so, on this day off, I have decided to do a few things:

  1. Watch JONAS
  2. Watch American Idol
  3. Work on Math

And hopefully I can get better before Saturday night, or I will cut something.

Please please please don’t eliminate Kris Allen!!

Okay, I have to go to the doctor soon. Probably get some blood drawn out of me. I hate needles, though.

Fail, fail, and… oh, look, MORE FAIL.

6 May 2009

Now is the time for me to list down every single fail that has happened this week (as well as, of course, some of the nonfails, but the fails are worse).

FAIL NUMBER ONE, which is an ongoing fail, is my home internet’s failure to function. The connection has been mysteriously dead since Sunday night, and the myDSL team seems to be doing absolutely nothing about it. This is extremely irritating because one, I have work to do and two, I have been slowly dying due to my lack of MSN time. It is excruciatingly painful having to go through the last two (and when I get home, it will be three) days without access to the internet. The only reason why my Facebook notifications haven’t piled up is because Paulina (who is very awesome in every single way except when she nags me about that thing that I shouldn’t be doing very much even though I do it anyway) lets me use her Mac in Filipino class. I’m 100% positive that the internet fail has to do with the physical cable connection. However, this can’t really be proven until the silly DSL people actually come over to my house and check it out. GAH!!

FAIL NUMBER TWO, today was class council elections day. The results won’t be out until about 40 minutes from now (and because I won’t have an internet connection at home I won’t be able to update this post). The fail of the day was a candidate calling a teacher by another teacher’s name. Twice. I’m not going into any further detail into this but it was hilarious, and I hope he wins as President.

FAIL NUMBER THREE, Danny Gokey screaming the most horridious note that has ever existed on American Idol. I’m watching the show at about 6 tonight, and I can’t wait to see the entire episode (even though my two papa UNFs, Danny Gokey and Kris Allen, apparently failed at life and are most likely to be bottom 2 this week, with Papa Kris getting the boot, which would be extremely depressing because he is so much better than Allison freaking Iraheta).
In Fil class I watched the YouTube video of his performance of Aerosmith’s “Dream On” — seriously, that song was way too big for him, and I really don’t think that these people should be singing songs that were performed last season. I can still remember Michael Johns singing that song upon his elimination. Baaaaaaad times. And then Danny comes along, sings the song no better than Michael did (actually, Danny sang it horribly), and ends it with this screeching last note that sounds like a pig being raped. I’m sorry, but as much as I love Danny, that note made me ROFL and then die in my seat.

 

WAIT WAIT WAIT ACTUALLY OKAY WAIT SOME UNFAIL POINTS RIGHT NOW. PAULINA IS THE MOST AMAZING PERSON IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD. I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU. (i love coho and shummer too but like OMG OMG OMG OH MY DAYS THIS IS TOO GOOD)

UNFAIL POINT ONE: Not failing Physics and Geo exams. Got an A- in Physics and an A on the Geo. Even though I’m gonna fail Math (I was bound for it), at least I didn’t fail the other two. Sorry, I’m really really spazzing out right now.

UNFAIL POINT NUMBER TWO. MINA SAID I CAN GO TO THE DAVIDS. OMGOGMOMGO O ITS NOT EVEN FUNNY :):):):) I LOVE HER

The end.

UNF POST #1

28 March 2009

I would like to end this month, sort of, with an UNF post. This week it consists of Matt Giraud and Kris Allen from American Idol, aaaand NICK JONAS. I fell in love with him on Tuesday; it’s a long story.

But he basically owns my soul right now.

0328unfAnyway, I’m trying to process how Matt ended up in the Bottom 2 last night. I mean, seriously, America, get your heads straight. Especially those — ugh — Megan fans. But good job Kris fans!! ♥unf♥

Nick Jonas makes me girl!jizz in my pants. I love him.

And now, ON TO ENGLISH AND GEO!!! I’ll keep UNFing and NOMing in my headd…
