You Are a Fist

Your life philosophy can be summed up as, "Life fast. Die young."

Your greatest wish is to have a life of passion and excitement.

And while you don't want to die young, you rather take risks than stay home and be afraid.

You are inspired and inspiring. You live each day like it's your last.

You Are the Sense of Sound

You love to talk, but you also love to listen.

You are simply a natural conversationalist.

You can have a deep conversation that lasts for hours and come out of it feeling energized.

You have a good ear for foreign languages and accents of all sorts.

You can imitate people quite well.

You also are a huge lover of music. You probably love music more than most people you know.

You Are Argentina

You are a set of contradictions, and it often seems like you live in two worlds.

You are introspective yet outgoing. You are modern yet traditional.

You are warm and honest. Your life is petty much an open book.

You are a hard worker, and you don't mind putting in long hours. And then you'll go party til dawn!

Gunslinger Girl: Part 2

ARGGGG! I was having a fun time watching my Gunslinger Girl then, I finished all the ones that were English subbed (has English subtitles)! I was watching episode 8: season 2 then, schwabamm! GGS2 is supposed to come out on DVD (English dubb) Autumn, NEXT YEAR!!! I either need to learn the Japanese language faster or, wait my life away... I am really annoyed right now... I'm thinking (hoping) somebody will dubb episode nine in less than a year! I really do enjoy the subbs better. I was watching Furuba (Fruits Basket) in English and found out that a bunch of stuff was cut out when they were transferring Japanese into English. LAME! So now I'm off to go to bed and rant in my sleep... I wish there was some kind of list I could sign up for that e-mails me when the new seasons of stuff are out! Hmm, I should research that... Anyways here's my somewhat updated anime list:

Gunslinger Girl: Part 1

"The Light Before We Land" - The Delgados (opening theme)

In truth there is no better place to be,
then falling out of darkness still to see,
without a premonition, could you tell me where we stand,
Id hate to lose this light before we land,
and when I feel like I can feel once again
let me stay awhile, soak it in awhile
if you can hold on
you can fix what is wrong
by a little time
for this head of mine
heaven for us...

"Dopo Il Sogno" (After the dream) -Opus (ending theme)

Whoa! This is probably the deepest anime I've ever watched! I mean, the uniqueness of this anime is ridiculous! First you've got these sweet little girls that can handle AK-47's and Sub machine guns! I wish I could shoot some of the guns in this show! I can't handle the recoil though... The beginning of the opening theme reminds me of Space Mountain at Disneyland... Well the part before the person starts to sing, when Henrietta is walking with her "violin case" (XD there's actually a sub-machine gun inside, flash bombs, extra ammo and magazines)
I am really disappointed with the drawing of season two. It's so different than season one and looks too Americanized (but it's the Japanese one! No dubs for me, thanks.)! I mean look at this!:

SEE WHAT I MEAN! The one's on the top are from season one, the bottoms are from Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino (GG season 2)... But the whole story line of Gunslinger Girl was so well thought out! You know when people make movies and everything looks better? That was the first season, it was so unlike any other anime! It had a sort of sadness to it but, not enough to weigh you down... If you want to learn more about the show you should go to Wikipeida. Or you could check out the Character List and learn more about each individual plot...

You kind of have to watch this anime carefully because the subtitles in both seasons are pretty fast and may need some re-winding. This anime is also based in Italy so it can be very confusing to hear people speaking Japanese in Italy with an English theme song and an Italian ending theme song... All and all it is a defendant 5/5 in my mind! I will do Gunslinger Girl: Part 2 and an anime update when I finish the series (I'm on Season 2: Episode 5 right now...).

(The blond Gunslinger Girl (above) is Rico. There were 6 girls but one died in the first season)

It's Grandpa's (on my dad's side) birthday and dad wanted me to bake a cake for him. Without much notice so, now i need to figure out how to get all the ingredients, recipe and decorate it before 4pm! There will be around 6-10 people. I was thinking of doing a double layer chocolate cake with chocolate frosting but, many people are trying to diet ( worst word a baker could hear) and that is WAY too fattening. I really think that a cheese cake would be better for the weather and a lot of people like it. Maybe I could just use food dye to paint USC on the top. Grandpa is possibly the biggest USC fan ever! Or maybe guns? Since he likes those too...
Aaaa I have no idea what to do! I still have to do all of my homework. AND mom just found maggots crawling around the garage! Which just brings me back to me delightful dream... Now I'm paranoid.
(Yup, the Rubik's cube is a cake!)

Sushi Sunday

Today, mom and I (Cameron was dragged with us. XD) went to the Mainplace Mall. Today's objectioves were:

• Get Cameron P.J.'s
• Get shampoo, soap at the Body Shop.
• Get some pants, halloween costume for me.
• Boba?

We ended up getting a Washington roll (a type of sushi roll) at Umi Grill at the food court. It was probably the best sushi I've ever tasted! It was even better than the Yen fusion sushi place by Cheese's house. Mm, I wish I had more! We also found this boba place in the mall but, they ran out of milk tea so we didn't get any.

After we left the mall, we headed off to a thrift store. Which was...closed, because it was Sunday... Geeze we're so clever today! All thrift stores are closed on Sunday! So we'll probably try again tomorrow. But, we are going to the roller rink again tonight with the Huelle's. It'll be FUN! I would like to do something physical since I can't skateboard in my own coldasac anymore!

Yes, it is MY coldasac, only to be taken over by a bunch of Mexican idiot males. I came out to skate in the over crowded black-top and couldn't really to find room to get some decent speed. Then I tried to hang out with these idiots who just decided to start talking about gangs, drugs and condoms.... That sure sounds like fun (no, not really)! I happened to wear a red bandanna that day, because I kind of needed to take a shower and my bangs were in my way. Then people were saying that their in the 'Bloods' (a huge LA gang) and wanted to buy my bandanna off of me. No thanks! So basically I'm sooo done with the whole male gender. The guy's I hang with don't act like this. So now I'm trying to find a good skate spot to practice my pro skater tricks.

Anyways, here's some new random Japanese words:

• Itadakimas, Thanks for the food/meal (before you eat)

• Gochisousama, Thanks for the food/meal (after you eat)

• Oishii, delicious

• Kore wa oshidisu, Thank you for the food (you say it to the chef/sushi chef)

I'll do the zodiac next time. Till next post, Sayonara! =(^-^)=

Mom called my Grahm to see if she had heard anything about the hurricane. It turns out that Grahm had just hung up with Farrah's dad. Which means that....THEY'RE OKAY!!!! I feel so relived! The watter didn't even come up their driveway enough to water their grass in the front yard! Haha TAKE THAT, IKE! Hmm, maybe I shouldn't taunt the bull...

I went to Japanese Culture class today and I did the homework right this time! But, sensee decided to go over Elementary school in Japan and how it was different than school here. I had no idea what anyone was talking about, being homeschooled and all. Most people usually go to school for a little at least but, not me! I've been homeschooled since birth! I don't really want to go to public school in America anyways. I probably wouldn't mind Japanese schools though. I'm going to look at transfer student stuff when I finish learning the language. I could go without knowing all of it but, I think it would be more fun if I knew what people were saying. They're so different, I really wish I would've just grown-up in Japan. But, then I guess I wouldn't have met all of my friends. Confusing O_o, now my head hurts. Anyways, everything is fine now so, YAY!
(The cat bus is from Totoro, one of Farrah's favorite animes that we watched together back in the day....)

Hurricane Ike...

One of my best friends in the world lives in Seabrook, Texas. Her family decided to honker down and try to pass through hurricane Ike. I really hope they make it! I am SO worried right now I may explode!!! It is a 2-5 degree hurricane with waves up to 20ft just in the first wave! It's supposed to hit around 1-2am and should be over around 6-ish. Farrah's mom said she'd call us when it's over, if they're still alive. THAT IS NOT AN OPTION!!!! I will not let them die! GRRRRR! I can't do anything! All I'm doing is sitting here worrying if my friend will be alright! I feel so useless... I'll update again when Farrah calls me. (Which she WILL do!)

My first 'Day in My Life' post.

Mmm, delicious brunch! An awesome sandwich of sourdough, mozzarella and pesto sauce!

I check my mail while my mom and little brother are at drum class.

Mom brings home boba! I LOVE boba! The closest boba place is 5 miles away though, so I usually don't go buy some.

I had Gymnastics so, I didn't have time to take pictures of the actual time I spent at the gym...

More delicious food! My dad made rotisserie chicken on the grill. With a side of steamed snow peas!

After dinner, Cheese decides to update her blog, again. I think she's addicted, like I am to Japanese or Harvest Moon (video game).

I go on face book for a little to see what everyone is up to. Only to find out that it's Morocco's birthday today! Happy 15Th Morocco!

And now I'm just munching on an apple... I didn't really do any time-checks today. There's my beautiful, mostly electronic day... Tomorrow's Disney day has been canceled so I'll just do my homework then. Till next post, Sayonara!

Awesome Skater chick!

This is a friend of a friend in Texas trying to win some skate equipment or something. Anyways, I WISH I COULD DO THAT!!! Seriously! I need to let loose instead of holding back because I'll get dominated by the concrete! "Don't even think about it, just DOO IIIT!" hm, maybe a good idea after all... Oh, and please do rate the video if possible! Anyways, I will update again shortly with my 'Day in my life' post.

Bunches of homework with the predictable overcast, and magots???

You wouldn't believe how much homework Ishii-sensee (JA1) and Shimura-sensee (Ja21) decided to pour on me. I had 7 pages of translation from JA1 and I had the regular homework from JA21 (which is basically just answering questions and a writen summery of the text book.). So after I was done with all this stuff, Ishii-sensee decides to pour more homework on me! It's not as bad as last time though, I really enjoy learning all of the characters. Soon we'll just take quizzes in Harigana instead of this lame, Americanized romaji version!

Today I woke up and looked out the window to find: IT'S OVERCAST TODAY!!! I am really excited for Autumn/Fall! I really love that season, with all the colors and stuff! I had to dig out the little bottle of clove oil I made into a necklace. Mm, I love the smell of cloves. It reminds me of the whole feeling of Fall. It makes me want to bake snicker doodles because of the cinnamon (I like that smell too It's all warm and homey) (no, homey is not a real word).

I had the weirdest dream last night. I was dreaming that me and a few friends (I don't remember who) were sitting on the edge of a little creak and we had our feet dangling in. It was really nice out it must have been the beginning of Fall. Then there were these cute little fish that were swimming around and started spitting out maggots! Then the maggots came by our feet and started crawling up our legs... Then they embed themselves in the back of our knees, I was really freaking out. The others were just fine while I was getting more and more freaked out at the small strange colored holes in the back of my knee. They were really weird colors too like purple, pink, blue, green and yellow... But in the crayon colors not the bruise type of faded colors. Then my friends told me that this is some sort of treatment for some disease. I DON'T HAVE A DISEASE! Then I woke up. Such a weird dream...

Monday park day: The food-filled future

Karasuma hasn't been eating anything, the other day he told me he hadn't eaten anything since lunch, the day before and it was already five o' clock at night! So, I decided to make Karasuma lunch Monday and um.... I have no idea what to make! Mom and I are going the grocery store tomorrow, so I can get all the stuff I need.

Hm, maybe I should make curry or something? That would be really funny because then Jon (Karasuma) would actually be like the Karasuma he's named after in School Rumble. Maybe I should make a bunch of onigiri? Or stir fried noodles.... Or orange chicken. He loves oranges.

If anyone has any ideas please share. Till next time (or I figure out what to make Jonathan), Sayonara!

JA21: Saturday and JA1: Monday

Today I found out that I did my homework wrong. I did way too much, and in the wrong format. Today in my Japanese Culture class, I learned all about the Shinto shrines, Buddhism, the Jomon period and the Yayoi period. I really do enjoy this class! Even if Shimura-sensee keeps shelling out homework. I already finished my JA1 homework. Since it was basically learning what characters made which sound it was pretty easy. Wednesday I learned A-H.

I've been into random pictures lately I guess, hence the awesome Popsicle lady on the top left of this post. Till next post, Sayonara (さよăȘら)

Anime Tuesday?

"Clint Eastwood" - Gorillaz

Oh oh oh oh oh
I ain't happy,
I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I'm useless but Not for long
The future is coming on

I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
The future is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on Yeah...

Ha Ha! Finally someone let me out of my cage
Now, time for me is nothing cos I'm counting no age
Now I couldn't be there
Now you shouldn't be scared
I'm good at repairs
And I'm under each snare
Bet you didn't think so I command you to
Panoramic view
Look I'll make it all manageable
Pick and choose Sit and lose All you different crews
Chicks and dudes Who you think is really kickin' tunes?
Picture you gettin' down in a picture tube
Like you lit the fuse
You think it's fictional
Mystical? Maybe
Spiritual Hearable
What appears in you is a clearer view cos you're too crazy
To know the definition for what life is
For you because I put you on the hype shit
You like it?
Gunsmokin' righteous with one token Psychic
among those Possess you with one go

I ain't happy,
I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless,but not for long
The future is coming on

I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
The future is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on

The essence the basics
Without it you make it
Allow me to make this Childlike in nature
You have it or you don't that's a fallacy
I'm in them
Every sprouting tree Every child apiece
Every cloud you see
You see with your eyes I see destruction and demise
Corruption in disguise From this fuckin' enterprise
Now I'm sucking to your lies
Through Russ, though not his muscles but the percussion he provides
with me as a guide
But y'all can see me now cos you don't see with your eye
You perceive with your mind
That's the inner
So I'm gonna stick around with Russ and be a mentor
Bust a few rhymes so mother fuckers Remember where the thought is
I brought all this So you can survive when law is
Feelings, sensations that you thought were dead
No squealing, remember (that it's all in your head)

I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
The future is coming on

I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
My future is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on It's coming on
It's coming on

My future
is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on

My future
is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on

My future
is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on

My future
is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on

My future
is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
My future ...

This isn't even from an anime but, it is anime in it's own way... The Gorillaz are a virtual band and no one has seen them in person... Kind of like the band, Kiss. They all wore make-up but one day they took it off and out pops Gene Simmons. The Gorillaz were even at the Grammes but had an AWESOME projection/hologram thing going on.

"Feel Good Inc." and "Hung Up" - The Gorillaz and Madonna

I found the Gorillaz AMAZING! I still don't know how they did the hologram thing. Madonna is kind of um, LAME. But, she shows off how the Gorillaz look like they're actually there! She even walks behind them! It's so awesome! Just imagine what people could do with stuff like that. Usually pictures are projected on pieces of glass but when Madonna went behind them you would've been able to see her through the hologram!

Here's a bonus, I'M FINALLY DONE WITH MY HOMEWORK! Next weeks homework shouldn't be half as bad. I get to practice the Harigana/Katakana characters next week in JA1 and I don't really know what I do next JA21 but, It'll probably be awesome! Till next post, Sayonara!

I never thought I would be complaining about homework, but here I am!

I just received an incredible amount of homework from my Japanese classes (JA1 and JA21)! I have to read Chapter 1 from my Japanese Culture textbook and summarize it. Also, I have to include certain facts within the first few sentences and such. I started reading the book and found it really quite interesting. I am pretty much done being grammatically correct now.

I will totally puh-own my homework and will enjoy it too. My life lately has been pretty good. I went to Disney Friday, hung out with my awesome friends and have been doing pretty good in gym. I need to get back to crocheting and drawing, and still need to do my JA21 homework. I think I'll add some romajinized Japanese sentences for people who read my blog. Oh! I just remembered that I need to send Kaleb some Japanese too! Anyways, here's some Japanese:

Anata no namae wa nan desu ka? What is your name?

Watashi no namae wa _____ desu. My name is ____.

Konban wa. Good evening.

Koniichiwa. Good afternoon.

Ohayou. Good morning.

Ohayou gozaimosu. Good morning (polite).

Itekimasu. I'm leaving (usually home).

Tadaima. I'm back.

Instead of Ohayou Gozaimausu. Usually you do not pronounce the U's and the end of words. Till next post, Sayonara!
(I have no idea how the picture is related, It just looked good..)
