Both my roommates have moved in. Both are Asian who speak their respective languages (Cantonese and...either another Chinese dialect, Vietnamese..or not) pretty fluently by the looks of it. I...I feel like a failure of an Asian-American.

So...I'm officially at school. I've moved into my dorm (triple, private bathroom) and took the bottom bunk bed. I feel kinda bad...ish? First-come first-serve, though, right? -_-;; Hopefully my roommates won't mind too much...

Yeah. So. I guess I'll be hanging around outside tomorrow, buy my books, etc.

Hurrr...it feels weird.

Fun times, fun times.

Didn't really go to many of the events, and instead remained largely in the Exhibit Hall looking through the booths and Artist Alley...so I guess I missed out on a few things, but overall good. Lots and lots of walking for sure, but yeah...

Watched AX Idol. The contestants were all pretty awesome. Love, love, LOVED the Rurouni Kenshin dubbers.

Bought quite a bit of prints. Especially e1n's awesome One Piece ones. And OP Shanks and Mihawk commissions! One each from e1n, korilin, and Scuttlebutt, Inc. Hehe.

First day of cosplaying as Toph, I got this creepy dude wanting me to sit on his lap. Egh... Still. There were a couple very cute-looking Zukos around, too.

Bought the Samurai Champloo DVD set, hell yes, and a fuckton of yaoi manga. $3 and $5! Best bargains ever.

Er...what else...

Photos? I took some of cosplayers.

But my computer's being fixed by my cousin, so it's gonna be a while before I get repossession of the stupid machine.

In other life news...it's my second week of teaching.

Gawd. I have said more words in the past two weeks than I've ever in a month in high school (exaggeration? I dunno).

I'm glad at that at least the male teachers aren't ugly to look at. Eheh...

Merits a brand-spankin'-new Livejournal entry.

Yes. High school is over.

As much as I want to sound elegant and/or adequately run-on-sentence-y and emotional and poetic and writer-ly, I can't.

Now, there's this fucking huge world out there, waiting for me to fall over on my face and screw up again and again and again.

I can't wait. 8D

Wow. A whole year's passed since my last entry.

To celebrate, a momentary descent into inanity...

Korean Movies "Must Watch":
쌍화점 (Frozen Flower)
서양골동양과자점 (Antique Bakery)
소년, 소년을 만나다 (Boy Meets Boy)
미인도 (Portrait of a Beauty)
후회 하지 않아 (No Regrets)

And I've got to study, as always.

*sigh* Bored. Thanksgiving break's been beautifully relaxing.

And "Beowulf"? It was...weird. The action, violence, etc. was great, fun, exciting, yay! But the dialogue seemed kind of contrived--too stiff, too unnatural, awkward--and made me laugh when I wasn't supposed to. The CGI was okay...loved the dragon, the pretty blue water, but sometimes the peoples' faces/expressions weren't as...well, expressive as I thought they could be. And demonic high heels? Hilarious. XDD

Your Scholastic Strength Is Evaluating

You are great at looking at many details and putting them all together.
You are talented at detecting subtle trends, accuracy, and managing change.

You should major in:

Conflict studies

You Are 60% Boyish and 40% Girlish

You are pretty evenly split down the middle - a total eunuch.
Okay, kidding about the eunuch part. But you do get along with both sexes.
You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don't actively fight them.
You're just you. You don't try to be what people expect you to be.

Your Japanese Name Is...

Noriko Asukai

You Should Learn Chinese

Surprised? You shouldn't be - Chinese is perfect for an ambitious person like you.
You're a natural entrepreneur, and a billion people are waiting to do business with you!

You Have a Melancholic Temperament

Introspective and reflective, you think about everything and anything.
You are a soft-hearted daydreamer. You long for your ideal life.
You love silence and solitude. Everyday life is usually too chaotic for you.

Given enough time alone, it's easy for you to find inner peace.
You tend to be spiritual, having found your own meaning of life.
Wise and patient, you can help people through difficult times.

At your worst, you brood and sulk. Your negative thoughts can trap you.
You are reserved and withdrawn. This makes it hard to connect to others.
You tend to over think small things, making decisions difficult.

I liked it.

I don't know how historically accurate it is, but I'm not a stickler for details -- you can't expect too much from Hollywood and Gibson.

It was beautifully shot, though. @_@ And the Mayan pyramid = so cool.

Oh, man. Jaguar Paw... He had pretty cute face >_>;;;

Anyway, yeah...
Going to sleep now.

It was pretty good. LOVE LOVE LOVED the special effects/CGI...

Aside from that...Luna Lovegood was a cool character. I really can't remember how she's like in the book, but...*shrug*

Coooool thestrals.

Saw "Ratatouille" at the Grove today.

Don't have much to say about it... Some of the scenes made me LOL. Linguini was kind of TOO timid; Colette was cool; Remy was cute; Ego was...interesting.

It was far from a bad movie, but it wasn't the most exciting movie either.

What made my mood go sour: too many people (note to self: 12~5 PM Sunday = NOT A GOOD TIME to go the Grove to watch a movie); having to sit in the wayyyy back, saving seats for my mom and brother for 15 agonizing minutes; icky little stupid kids sitting (and standing and bouncing and screaming) in front of and beside me.

Oh well.

My mom's car's battery died while we were at the supermarket. At least it happened there and not at the Grove. Hmm... Spent about an hour on this issue, but got it resolved.

Hahah, that was quite an interesting experience.

Alright...so I've seen a whole bunch of movies in the past two/three weeks -- all but one rented/seen on TV.

Starting with the best/most recent/expensive one...

I enjoyed that movie very much, even though my bladder needed to stay on hold for at least half the movie.. -_-;;
But anyway. Yeah. Exciting movie. Lots and lots of BOOM!! CRASH! SCREECH!! and yeah. Pretty pretty FX.

Borat. Watched it with my dad. Ehhh...NOT the best thing to watch with dad. Didn't like it that much, but it was interesting...and gross o_O;;; Well, I guess I enjoyed the gay parade scene...but... Okay, that little tumble b/t Borat and Azamat? *retch* EWWWW FAT MAN. I'm sorry, but really!
Although...Sacha Baron Cohen himself is quite handsome...XD

Aeon Flux was interesting...but not my style interesting. Pretty-girl MC, kinda weird storyline...but pretty special effects/gadgets/scenery.

Starsky & Hutch. Are so gay with each other @_@.
Owen Wilson + Ben Stiller = lovely character interaction.

Dodgeball was funny. I liked it. XDD

Happy Feet was soooo cute.

What else...

Oooh, I got the first part of 해신 (Haeshin/Emperor of the Sea) -- 17 episodes, 6 DVDS, for $60. EEEEEH!!! XDD

And Gundam Wing. It was great seeing those again. And so now I have to concede...Heero looks like he's much more attracted to Relena than to Duo or any other male pilot. *sigh* Still, slash fanfiction for this fandom keeps me happy.

Alright then...

For the past 2 days, I've been having a really annoying headache. Possibly sleeping for 12 hours, then waking up and proceeding to watch 6 hours of television might have contributed, but still...

Belated comment, but w/e.

So...I got the collector's edition... (Couldn't resist.)

Some additional stuff that the regular one doesn't have, but nothing over the top. In fact, I didn't really take a look at all the special features. (More like couldn't; I can only watch it when none of my family's at home - it's not exactly known that I have the movie in my possession, and I intend to keep it that way - or when they're all asleep. Also, sleep impedes and apathy prevents...)

Er...okay, so...yesh...now the comment on the movie itself...

It's nothing really intelligent or anything, though. And it's kind of long.

SPOILERS, yay!Collapse )

I should rewatch it.

Whew...good night~
