This is a fun little 'pet-project' of a schoolgirl where she goes on to vent her feelings, thoughts and views, write, and babble on about nonesense that goes about her usual life.
If you've found this blog, then chances are great that you know me. I'm just a regular asian schoolgirl, and there's nothing out of the ordinary with me. But alongside that, I am a violinist, an artist, a model, a travel enthusiast, and a web designer. I love many things such as: my culture, foreign languages, books, stuffed animals, the rain, and animals. In the same breath, I dislike a few things. These few would consist of: homework, cold weather, milk, heights and crowded beaches. I also have my share of hopes and dreams alongside everyone else.
Tagboard here, i reckon cbox.

summer has finally begun!
Fact: Coffee Prince is ah-mazing
I'm excited summer has offically begun, and exams are finally over! Yesterday, my dad gave me the day of to relax my wracked brain. All my exams went pretty well, all but one. Geometry. I do not like Geometry. Lol. It was just hard, but I 'm not going to whine and groan over math. It is summer, and we all should relax.
So yesterday, I spent the day sitting home and watching Korean dramas all day. Mainly one called 'The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince'. It's very very good! And absolutely adorable. It's not one of those sappy, romance ones oozing with cuddling, kissing and lover pairings that have one suffering from a terminal ailment. Well, there is someone with cancer! But she is just a minor character (the grandmother) with no love triangle of her own. I have to say, I would definately recommend it to anyone who is in for some laughs. I haven't finished it yet, but I have a few episodes left to watch. It's about one hour each episode, and17 episodes altogether.
Basically the synopsis is:
" The life of Go Eun Chan is not easy; she works many jobs to pay off debts and even gave up her feminine image. Choi Han Kyul is the heir of a big food company, but his grandmother wants him to settle down, so she arranged many dates for him. After Eun Chan bumped into Han Kyul and was mistaken for a boy, Han Kyul decided to hire Eun Chan to be his gay lover in order to avoid the arranged dates. Desperately in need of money, Eun Chan had no choice but to accept. Han Kyul's grandmother also made Han Kyul in charge of a filthy coffee shop in danger of being bankrupt. Eun Chan begged to work at the coffee shop, and not long after, feelings start to spark, except, how would Han Kyul accept his "homosexuality"? "
If you're in the mood for a 'Walk to Remember'-esque, gut-wrenching, romance movie, I totally recommend 'A Millionaire's First Love'. It's very cute and loaded with the 'awww' moments. But the end sucks, as in it's depressing. This one is about 1 1/2 to 2 hours long.
A movie that is good for a couple laughs is '200 Pounds Beauty'. It's about a singer named Hanna who is extremely obese, but with an amazing singing voice, so she is stuck hiding behind a screen singing for a talentless, skinny girl. I won't give away anymore. :] This one is also about 1 1/2 to 2 hours long.
I also read Sarah Dessen's novel Lock and Key yesterday. I have to say, I was greatly disappointed with the book. It was not good at all! It was about 415 pages long, and the inciting moment didn't happen until about page 350. It's was a big letdown since I loved her books Just Listen and This Lullaby. She's been a disappointment lately, I must say. Her quality of work has greatly gone downhill. Dreamland was complete and utter trash, and Lock and Key was a huge waste of time, money, and paper. The idea of the story was 'okay'. The book is corny, the characters don't work, and there is absolutely no suspense. I didn't feel any emotion or pity for any of the characters. And the book basically just ended. I would never recommend this book to anyone, and I can't even bring myself to donate it to the library because I cannot let anyone go through the same agony of reading this horrid book. I only finished reading it because they whole time I was just hoping that it would start to get good. That didn't happen. I'm not a writer myself, but I just have to say that even the writing was bad. I couldn't help but think "no wonder you write for younger teens". I probably sound extremely cruel, but it's just irks me because I literally begged my dad to buy it for me. I should've bought The Bell Jar instead. That seemed like it had substance.
So today I am reading Shanghai Girls by Lisa See. I should finish it by the end of the day because I am speeding through books this summer. I've finished about 1-2 books a day. I have to say, Lisa See is probably one of my favorite writers ever! Her stories are engaging, and actually interesting. But they are all historic fiction novels that take place in Asia. So far the book is pretty good.
Today is a tiring day. It's groggy out and it's causing me to feel a little tired. In recent days, I've felt like a failure, and I still do.
But in other news:
Lianna, it's the 5th. You owe us a blog post! =^-^=

Fact: Geometry is the last one I have to take
I'm very very very very excited to be (soon) finished with my exams. I have only math left to take tomorrow and I am home free. (Finally). A few of my classmates already know who they will have for next years classes; and I'm hoping that I will have the same religion teacher. I really enjoyed her class, and plus, I did well. I wish I could have the same History teacher; he was absolutely amazing. And I wish I could have the same English teacher the next year too. Strike that, the same english class students too. I wish I could have my same Chem teacher for Physics.
But I'm definately not looking forward to taking Physics next year. It does not seem like fun at all. I wish I looked at my teachers list though -___-*!
My exams so far have been going well. My Spanish exam was much easier than I had thought. Maybe I actually learned something this year. But I hope this isn't one of those situations where you think you did well, but later find out that you did horrible! My Religion exam was extremely easy. Much easier than the midterm actually; I finished with 15 minutes left.
I went looking for a pageant dress today. And I'm very excited. I looked at a few dresses in the boutique and tried a few on even though they were much too big. I really like big ball gowns, but my mother refuses. She wants to get one that shows off my 'figure'. I don't have much of a figure. I'm literally a chopstick. We found a great one though, but it was black, and black doesn't look good on the stage. My mother has something against black for me. She wouldn't even let me get a simple black bathing suit.
The owner, who is one of my mom's good friends, said that he would try to get it in turqoise for me. And he would keep a look out for anything that would wow and flatter me when he went to New York. He goes every few months to get the latest styles for his store. He's a very nice guy. We got my sister's pageant dress from him, and my aunt's ball gown from him and they were spectacular. Lol, I've been there like literally once a week for the past two months.
My sentences seem very choppy, no? I don't know why.
So Octo-mom is getting her own tv show. Are you going to watch it? I certainly won't.
So the North Korea thing is still stressing me out. I was talking to my friend Won-jong, and he said that if North Korea decides to attack Seoul, the whole city will be annihilated in less than a half hour. I hope they don't. I really don't want to lose any of my friends. TT^TT I seriously wish war did not exist.
On a lighter note...
I LOVE IKEA ♥ lol.
