Dedicated to Elizabeth Mueller

As the title suggests (or rather, does not suggest, whoopsies) that I have yet another new follower. Someone else who decided to follow my blog and thus support me on my quest to find the true meaning of life. 

Okaaaaaay. Well, 'nuff said. Welcome, Miss Mueller.

Katara and Zuko.

While I remain in my current Avatar obsession (I'm talking about the animated show, not James Cameron's movie, which is a total misnomer, by the way. Just lettin' y'all know) I thought that I might as well post this poster I found online of Katara and Zuko. I still think HE and NOT Aang should've ended up with her, but hey, I'm not the creator, so I guess I have no say in that. Oh well. 


Isn't it absolutely wonderful? I think so. 

Welcome, Emma

Yipee, I have a new follower. Yes! Someone else who loves me :D 

Anyway, a big hearty welcome to Emma who recently joined my community. Welcome, Emma! And thanks for following.

The creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender happily present . . .


Big news for everyone out there who is as obsessed with the show Avatar: The Last Airbender as I am: THEY ARE MAKING A NEW SHOW. It's a spinoff series to the original Airbender and it's called The Legend of Korra. 

The story takes place seventy years in the future with new characters and settings. Korra, the new avatar after Aang, is a hot-headed and rebellious young woman from the Southern Water Tribe. She must face trouble in the form of an anti-bender revolt and learn her last element air from Aang and Katara's song, Tenzin. 


The world of Avatar and everything in it was so rich with history, just like a true land is and should be. From a literary perspective, it has everything: well-developed characters, a complex plot with many subplots and twists, and realistic settings with HISTORY. Not many TV shows have that. Actually, I can't think of anything else that has that. So there you are. Anyone willing to argue this point with me, write your comments down, and I will happily enter a debate with you. Just be warned that I don't play nice. :D 

A picture from the new series for all your fans and to-be fans out there: 

Below is the picture of the city where most of the story will take place.

I am such a klutz . . . and this week sucks

All right, I'm gonna make one thing clear here: I originally meant to write this post for Thursday, March 24th but then I ended up not being able to finish and saving it for Friday. And so when I went back to edit and post it, Blogger changed the date from Thurs. to Fri. just to make everything weird for me. So, when I say "today" in this post, I actually mean Thursday. Point established. 

Yup. I said it all. 

This week has been the WORST week in the history of worst weeks. Even today, when we had a two-hour delay because of the snow and so had thirty minute long classes, was bad. First of all, every frigging day this week I've had to stay up late (like 12:30 to 1) and then afterwards get up at 6 AM (because my stupid bus comes at 6:50). And today we had the delay  and so when my dad came in my room in the morning to tell me I was like, "Yes!" and went back to sleep. 

Here's what I THOUGHT would happen after I got the two extra hours of sleep: 

I sleep peacefully until 8 AM. 
I wake up feeling refreshed. 
I go down, eat breakfast and get energized. 
I get ready, all the while thinking what a great day at school it's going to be with only thirty minute classes. 
I go to school. 
I come back home feeling like the day was so short I could hardly believe it, and I sit down, do my homework, study for my tests and essay, go to sleep early thinking, "Tomorrow's Friday! And then it's the weekend!" 

Here's what ACTUALLY happened: 

I sleep peacefully until 8 AM (this was the only part of my plan that went well) 
I wake up around 8:15 feeling pretty groggy, but hope it's because I just woke up and the feeling will go away. 
I brush my teeth, eat breakfast and dress, still in my groggy, half-awake state. 
I walk in the biting cold and snow  to my bus stop, and almost trip on the way down the hill  because I'm STILL groggy. 
First period math. Pre-calc. Not fun, but tolerable. But today, it has become intolerable. I love the teacher, though, so I try to pay attention, but each time I pick up my pen to write down notes in my binder, my eyes start to close. So I give up altogether after ten minutes and just listen to the lesson instead of writing it down. 
Second period. English. I love the subject and the teacher, but she's not here today due to a meeting and even with shortened periods is still making us start writing that essay we were supposed to start today and finish tomorrow. I read the given quote, scribble a quick outline, and fall asleep. 
Third period AP Spanish I. Reading Comprehension questions. Ugh. Need I say more? 
Fourth period, Psychology. Yes! The only fun class of the day so far. We're watching A Beautiful Mind. Great movie, by the way. Y'all should watch it. The main character is played by Russel Crow. 
Fifth period, APUSH. Otherwise knows as AP US HIstory. We watched a video on the Roaring Twenties. 
Sixth period. Ugh, Gym. Our co-ed class is having volleyball championships right now, and today our team only had three people (including me) on it. So our teacher helped us out by being a fourth player. We played. I don't know if we won or lost the two games we had time to play - didn't really pay attention. 
Seventh period, Honors Chem. Not bad. Not good, either. Today is just an off day, 'cuz usually I like learning about the attraction between various sorts of electrons. But tomorrow we have a test. Although I found I have a natural aptitude for chemistry as compared to bio last year. God that was hard. 
Eighth period. Ugh, even my free period is stretching longer. The day just WON'T END!! I just want it to be over so I can go home, chill while watching some reruns of Gossip Girl (love that show, by the way) and then start my homework and study for my two tests, and one in-class essay that I have tomorrow. Totally yuck. 

2pm: I come home, chill like I planned and watch Gossip Girl. It's still only 2pm on a Thursday afternoon, but I'm so dead tired I feel like it's a Friday - I wish it's a Friday!!!! I don't feel like doing my homework or studying AT ALL. Like, niete (Russian for nothing). But eventually, I sit down and start my homeowork, though by the time i start it's like 5-something - what did I do for the past three hours?? OMIGOD I don't remember!!!!!!!

Ugh. I'm feel like such a scatterbrain right now. 

Oh and PS. On Sunday, I went up to our attic (it's a huge old place, and really surprisingly airy) to explore with my dad, and discovered THE HARD WAY that we have a false ceiling. See, there are wooden beams spread out across the floor of the attic, but where there are no beams, there's only big, soft bunches of pink cotton (or whatever the H-E-double-hockey-sticks that is) and bags full of that stuff. So I step out from the ladder and put one leg on one of the beams while my other leg on the top rung of the ladder and I discover that the beam is unsteady and if I don't do something fast I will topple head-over-heels down the ladder and be raspberry jam all over the carpet. Not a nice image. So I instinctively put my  left leg (the one on the top rung) on . . . one of the soft parts, without a wooden beam to support it. And, as expected, my leg went right through the "floor" of the attic and made a gaping hole in our ceiling. So that's how I discovered that we have a false ceiling, and the stuff up there in the attic is the only stuff keeping the whole roof from collapsing on us, while it breaks under the weight of one leg from a seventeen-year-old girl. Wonderful. 
Really, that's nice to know. 

So now I still have a gash in this really awkward part of my upper thighs, which right as it's  drying itches like hell. Yeah. Story of my life. :D 

This was officially the worst week of my junior year of high school. Ever.

I recently got into this new crazed obsession with the Monopoly game for whatever reason (I dunno, maybe I got interested in money dealings - haha) 

Anyway, so I decided to make a Monopoly of my own. But the problem is, I can't think of any themes. So far, I only have famous novels as a theme. 

Any ideas? Thanks. 



Put it all on me. 

Don't you wanna see these clothes on me. 


Don't you all "Fashion" girls just love this song??? I DO!!!!

I survived my first SAT's

Exactly what the title says. 


I wish I could give a a big warm hug to everyone in Japan who has suffered due the earthquake/tsunami. There is no greater sadness in this world than losing your home (and everything else you own) as well as the people you love.

I thank God that nothing ever this major happened while I was living in Japan way back when; I mean, we did have earthquakes, certainly, but they were very minor (I don't remember them but my parents do) and only took about 1-2 minutes and shook a little. Absolutely nothing compared to this. 

Finally, I'd like to conclude by saying that no matter how big or small there will always be something in this world that we can do. At times like these, even the tiniest of details matters, right? So here's how you can give your own little share of help: 

Simply text REDCROSS to 90999 and donate $10 to Japan and help them get through this crisis. For more information, visit the American Red Cross website or click the link below.

Double standards

I hate them. Plain and simple. Short and sweet. 

They're stupid, they're silly, they're made by people who don't know a thing, they're hypocritical, they neither say nor prove anything about anyone, and they should just not exist in this world. 

Point made.  


Guess what? Bet you can't guess. Nope, not in a million years. Well, okay, if you're a Pisces then you can probably guess what I'm about to say. Or if not, don't feel bad, you had a less than 1% chance of getting it anyhow. 

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

In four days, 1 hour, 45 minutes and a few-something seconds. 

But who's counting?
