Disappointingmentness & A New Read for Me

:x Last Saturday and this Friday. Boo.

So last Saturday we had our pre MESA competition. And well, we've got some crappy Algebra 2 teachers, because our entire league of sophomores didn't place in the competition at all for Team Math, and only one did for Solo Math because he's just crazy like that. So I assume we've got a lot of learning to do. At least I'm still passing my math classes, righty-o? My team did place for our balsawood glider for 9/10th grade though, and our other peoples in MESA managed to place in a variety of things, and in all 3 places for Geometry, so we've got good Geometry teachers instead. WoNdErFuL. yay~

So I've been reading a book called The Faery Reel: Tales from the Twilight Realm. It's a collection of short stories or poems about faeries or fairies, however you like to spell them. There's stories about faeries from Japan, Europe, America, and others, but it's incredibly interesting.

Wednesday or Thursday, I checked out the book plus another one by Amy Tan, called The Kitchen God's Wife. I left the other one in my locker and grabbed The Faery Reel to read on the bus. To my unluckiness, it was absolutely pouring outside! Horrible weather, for a normally sunnyside place. Whenever I haven't got my umbrella, the weather goes haywire. I brought it Friday and the weather went happy on me. Thanks for the rage, weather.

Anyways, I walked 2 blocks to the bus stop and waited about 10 minutes under a nearby porch to stay dry before the bus came. Then I went on the bus, plunked my backpack and lunch box on the ground, and took up a seat (two, now I think of it, maybe) while zipping out my copy of the story. I laid down reading the book while staying warm for 20 minutes until I got home, and it was an absolutely fascinating book. I actually just finished it today.

Anyways, I recommend it. It's perfect for a day when you're in need of inspiration and hope, and great on rainy days when you need something to brighten up. And awesomeitiousness when added in with hot chocolate. It's definitely a read better for teens, as the stories tend to edge towards that spectrum, with some about teenage love, some that are more like folk tales, and others. A great read for those in need of a curiosity boost.

Tower of God

As you all know, reading manga is one of my good hobbies, right? There isn't just manga though, there is also manhwa & manhua, respectively the Korean and Chinese equivalents of Japanese manga.

I find that manhwa tend to have sketchy art that is crisper that manga, and manhua are softer and prettier. I find that manhwa have a greater variety of plots, especially in webtoons via Naver or Daum, which are Korean net portals similar to how we would use Yahoo or Google.

One of my favorite manhwa-webtoon comics happens to be Tower of God. It's a mysterious story about a boy named 25th Baam who is someone we know almost nothing about- but his best friend, or more so, his love is Lahel, a girl who wants to travel up to the top of the "tower". Which is also called the Tower of God because reaching the top enables your any wish to be granted- as in the preview, you could have riches, fame, revenge, or power, or even more; making the tower a dangerous game all throughout.

Summer mode, with the bright colors of salamanders, scarabs, and spring. hating on this lovely, lovely coldly rain of our city. The radiation must be pouring in.

Lately where I've been, we've simply had a torrent of rain. Everyone's assuming it's from the horrible radiation coming in from Japan, bless their poor hearts. Rain isn't nearly as bad for us, but I'm sure they might need the water resources, so if they need it, so it be. They've got a terrible situation and a radioactive mess of business to fix, which is totally not so pretty. I'll miss my fixes of manga, anime, J-drama, and J-pop, but the people come before the outsiders.

Anyways, this rain calls for a little blur of hope. Brightness means blue. Lots of it! The dress is more of a frilly, semi-formal dress type. Makes me think of .. a bright blueberry. The belt gives it a refined look, since it's just so.. wrinkly. :3 the clutch, gives a flowery look and adds to the look with a different shade of blue while still staying.. Wrinkly. The shoes do the same, and give a springy, jump start perspective on this bright spectacle. Vera Wang Princess is one of those wonderful, springy, sweet fragrances, so I've added it on to add more depth to the polyvore! :) An absolute necessity. Finally, there's a bright pink, black, and off-white cardigan- adds a change to the eyes, and a jacket in case one gets a little chilled over the course of your prom dance. It's cute, fashionable, and the pockets could look like penguins, huh. The color blocks give it a weird, structured view, and the belt is added on for its mosaic-like depth and as a cincher to keep the outfit giving a tight feel. Outfits worn out are not meant to be baggy, of course.

GNL by Avril Lavigne inspired set :)

Avril recently released her new album called Goodnight Lullaby. It's definitely a great work of art! It's far more composed and soft compared to her last album, The Best Damn Thing. I especially adore Push, Smile, and Wish You Were Here.  It makes me think of love, regret, and overthinking.

In honor of her comeback! I've made a polyvore outfit. This is my first time using it, so I only used some of the top things that were shown. It's a soft and fluffy feel, like tulle or chiffon; the peach, sheer gray, and muted tone colors give an underrepresented feel to it. The nail polish gives a little pop. The outfit comes together to a perfect spring date outfit, like when you'd be outside with a Smile on your face with the leaves blooming and the flowers falling. :)

Going Crazy- Ji Eun ft. Bang Yong Guk

The most beautiful video in a while, or the song at least. It's been compared to Love the Way You Lie by Eminem ft. Rihanna; which is an amazing song, I cannot deny. This song has a similar beat and very similar lyrics.
Ji Eun is the singer, and Bang Yong Guk is the rapper. They interchange their lyrics which add to a type of story telling in the video and lyrics. You'll need to see the English subs to really understand it. Compared to other Korean songs, this MV is amazing beautiful, simple, and descriptive in itself. It's a ballad, so it doesn't need a dance or anything like that.

The lives where they portray their emotions while singing are simply beautiful. I viewed the first live performance via YouTube, and whilst the video was sadly taken down, it was a gorgeous stage with a piano, stairsteps, roses everywhere, and just a very melancholy, beautiful feeling. It wasn't flashy, but just awe-inspiring. I really enjoy how this song is

INFINITE- Nothing's Over

It's a good day, a good day indeed. Before the dawn, they know that she's back to come back again. :)

Dresses, Celebrities, and Fashion, whoopie!

Oh man. Two gorgeous ladies pitted against each other. OMG Yahoo, why must you do this?

Either way, Hudson's barely winning votes by 5%. I personally believe it's because her picture is in far more attractive lighting to show off her looks and the dress, but I also prefer her. Her curves are giving the dress that needed oomph. Hair and shoes are far better, as well. Salma's hair is pulled back, making her seem like she's the one being worn.. And the shoes aren't even alive! Does she have feet at all? I wonder..

But Hudson's won this round, so it's all cool, folks. All cool in the house.

I have a love/hate relationship involving ulzzangs/ulhjjangs.

I mean, there are a couple who are amazing gorgeous.
And then we get the oh my gosh, you are seriously a bug eyed alien kind. Not like it wasn't obvious already, buuuh just saying. :) These types apparently are more like Chinese Net Idols, which I shall get into some other fine, wonderfully fine day of doom. :)
I think I'll post some more of what I like to call, real ulzzangs. Well, as real as they get with good clothes, good figures, good hair, good makeup, and amazing photoshop & liquefy. If only I was able to do the same!

Big Bang's Comeback

love love love Big Bang. ranked in order of loveliness by meee~

G-Dragon- my homie, my love, the awesomeitiousness of my life.
Daesung- totally underrated, but his voice is love <3 and he's so cheerful and funny
T.O.P- he can have a dark look, a happy look, and still look hot either way, because he's the TOP of the charts
Seungri- maknae love! cute, adorable, and funny as well. awkward turtle.
Taeyang- mweh. he's shy, every Asian girl in America loves him, and his fauxhawk is copied by 70% of guys at my school. What more can I say? :)

But despite orders, they're all awesomeitiousness.

Even Gaho. We love you too.

Steve Jobs vs. Bill Gates

Steve Jobs versus Bill Gates. I suppose this is an obvious enough title.

Steve Jobs- the creator of APPLE. My beautiful iTouch, my older brother's iPhone (2 of them, in fact), and my father's iPhone/iPad. And all my friends went to our friend's house, and all of us had an iTouch or iPhone. The latest trend. Ahh, EVERYONE be lovin' these. He's raking in the dough, and we love the simplicity of his company's gadgets. And j'adore how iCarly parodies the name and even the gadgets with iPear, and the show name.

Bill Gates- Microsoft's founder dude. Where would my operating system BE WITHOUT HIM!? I would not be posting on this blog if not for him. I am glad, sir. Very. I doubt Apple woulda popped out without him. Mighty glad I am, and might glad I will always be. He's retired now, but he's pretty much still rich & doing better things with his money- philanthropists are wonderful folks. I'm glad to say he's someone I admire. :D

This commences.. mine's comparison of techy folksies. (:

People are Geniuses.

There's a random topic generator! Why this will become very handy. I will find random topics to blog about, yo!

Today, I spent 5 hours at a friend's house along with 2 other friends. We were working on our MESA projects. :) Currently, we're working on our Balsawood Glider. It's going to be timed and my partner is making the glider while I do the plans. So these next few days will be pretty exciting- I've got an AP World History powerpoint on the effects of the Industrial Revolution as well as a press conference for Catherine the Great of Russia.

Aye, aye. A girl's life is busy. :) but it's quite satisfying.
