A brief summary of my day.

(warning: conversations may have been edited for brevity's sake)

as follows )
chu_totoro: (Chobits-- winz0rz)
At 4 something yesterday, I hit 48,600 words.

I had also finished my NaNovel.

WHOOPS.

YAY FOR 1,400 WORDS OF BULLSHIT HAHAHAHAHA

After all that time spent coffee shop scouting, hours upon hours cooped up in libraries and Starbucks with Weina, mad sprints of word marathoning to classical music, I am done.

In celebration, I slept with my pillow facing the other way. Needless to say, I woke up very disoriented today.


So! The craze has ended.

And immediately, I have descended to... a WEBCAM JUNKIE.

No really! Yesterday (after the end of Nano) was like. Sharing Music Day. I found my study buddies (alas, no longer =/) in McDonald's and we spent at least an hour swapping music three ways on three different earphones (which, let me tell you, gets incredibly confusing) and learned quite a lot about each other.

ADELA: POWER METAL GOGOGOGO
WEENA: MY EARS
ADELA: ...I have classical, too?
WEENA: Here! Have some of my beautiful, melodic, Celion-Dion esque easy listening pieces!
TIFFANY: I CAN'T LISTEN TO THIS I'M GOING TO CRY /SOB
A + W: ... ...
TIFFANY: Here! Have some old Chinese songs!
ADELA: ♥
WEENA: My melodic pieces...
ADELA: Here! Have some K-pop!
WEENA: Too noisy.
TIFFANY: Here! Have some K-pop!
WEENA: Yay! ♥
ADELA: But that's just as noisy as my K-pop /sob

and so it went.

And then I went home. And ended up chatting on Skype for two hours and - you guessed it - swapping music through Skype speakers. J-pop instead of K-pop! Life of a fob?

In the morning, I woke up, disoriented by the odd configuration of the room (my pillow was on the wrong side), and became even more disoriented when I saw my friend, who was now BLOND.

ADELA: I don't recognize you.
MELODY: I don't recognize myself.
A: ... ...
M: ... ...

And so we stared at each other (or really just at her) through Skype for at least an hour, if not more.

Whereupon I rushed through all my homework on the train and right before class and made it just as the teacher walked in the door. HA.


Oh I was being patronizing in class today and totally got a slap in the face for it.

SENSEI: So anyone know what this yellow flower is called in English?
US STUDENT #1: Nope.
US STUDENT #2: Nope.
US STUDENT #3: Nope.
ADELA: Nope.
SENSEI: Oh, well then. The next kanji is...
ADELA: Psst, it's called rape!
US STUDENT #1: I know.
ADELA: Oh.

Totally deserved that. Also, for those of you who are not sure what I'm talking about, Rape is also the name of a flower. A YELLOW FLOWER. THAT GROWS IN FIELDS.

So when I got home today my Malaysian friend (the one in Britain now) - you guessed it again - Skype-d me! IN CLASS.

Oh boy we felt so badass, Skype-ing during the middle of a law lecture. Well, she was the only one really at risk there, since I'm sitting happily in my dorm all the way across the other side of the world, but hey. Share the love.

Also, her professor had an AWESOME BRITISH ACCENT. Understandable, as he was in Britain, but he also repeated the words "grievous bodily harm" at least 30-40 times within the 20 minutes that I listened to him lecture, and it was the only thing I really picked up on. Apparently grievous bodily harm is very important to lawyers.

AHEM.

So now that I have procrastinated making dinner far too long, here is a list of things to do now that I am free of the noveling nightmare!


LIST OF THINGS TO DO

-PIRATE MARATHON YAYAYAYYAY
-karaoke
-use up the rest of my manga cafe coupons
-CAT CAFE
-visit Shibuya!
-go to Harajuku. ON A SUNDAY.
-cut hair (wait for Weena)

-scout bookoffs for Yuu and Kaens
-GET ABOVE 90 ON A GRAMMAR TEST T___T
-shabushabu partayyyyyy



yay! I sound like those girls I used to think were really lame for facebook whoring all the time and using backwards smileys.

WELL HOW THINGS CHANGE

Incidentally, I saw an FML the other day about some girl's little sister who decided to get revenge on her by switching her bottle of hair dye with a bottle of Nair.

...what a horrible little sister.

O_____O k byeeeeeee


(PS. I'm still a little high from writing 50,000 words in one month. Just, you know. A bit. :D)


edit: Speaking of Skype and lectures, I have an idea for when we get back to school! How about everyone draw straws, and the loser can go to the lecture, keep Skype on, and everyone else study from home. :D

Todayyyy I

chu_totoro: (FMA-- I sleep now kthxbye)
spent my morning running around doing errands and cooped up in a coffee shop

then got to school and cooped up to write some more and nearly died of exhaustion

then found out that I FORGOT ABOUT NEWSPAPER CLUB and FREAKED OUT!!!!!!!

...and spent a lot of class kind of hysterically bantering with an American boy

and being silently hysterical in general

then during break

me and my friend ran around like maniacs shrieking our frustrations to the world

and I accosted random korean boys and tried to learn korean

and then random korean boys (and girls) from my class and I

spent a lot of time teaching other how to write (and speak) phrases such as

let's play!

and

i love you!

and after class two malaysian boys hijacked me at the piano

and later in the same hour one of them came back

and we played

(with the piano)

and he walked me to the station

and I came home!

but I am still unhappy

because I did not speak very much to the boy I like

and I have to ask myself...

what is the point of playing so outrageously with everyone ELSE?

but then again,

it's fun, duh.

HAHA HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH OF MY SELF-INDULGENCE YET

tomorrow!

I shall go to school super early

and write my head off with this lovely American girl who stays at a homestay house with THREE CHILDREN (oh my god!)

GOD SAVE ME 4 DAYS LEFT AND 13K TO GO

NANO IS TAKING OVER MY BRAIN

DID YOU KNOW HOW LONG I SPENT WRITING (AND PROCRASTINATING) AFTER I CAME HOME TODAY

HELP

BYE

所以前幾天我忽然想起郭媽媽積極推薦的那位(親戚?)歌手,ひろみ(沋美?洸美?)ちゃん

今天去看了她的live performance,不錯耶~
聲音很好聽~~
比我們前幾天去聽的那幾個band好多了
不瞞你說,那天有幾個吉他手還矕利害的
可是歌手超~~~爛!!!

哎呀我錄了好多打算上載的,也遲遲沒放上來
其實我不是太忙
最近在看日劇!
花より男子 :D
看日劇也用電腦嗎...所以一上電腦就直接去看,不理上載下載什麼了

最近看完了
所以現在才會來blog
哈哈

ㄇ反正說
ひろみ的聲音很強,而且有深度,range也不錯
雖然有時候音不太準
哈哈其實她第一條我有這麼想(音準的說)
可是不知道是不是我的幻覺,而且批評人家也不禮貌吧
結果碰到ひろみ的時候她自己這麼說!
我好高興
耳朵還沒退化耶

當然來這裡是會時不時拉大提琴啦
而且星期1到5至少四天放課後會去801號玩鋼琴

阿我快把rach 2的前五頁玩會了喔!
說前五頁,不過是score
所以其實只算是前五行吧
可這樣也不錯啊
超~~~愛rachmaninoff!! ^o^

話說回來
ひろみ還是比之前的那些歌手都利害
有一個歌手居然唱sk8er boi!
can you believe it!?
我一直笑一直笑,差點笑死
站在我旁邊的朋友臉好白好白,都快哭了
這就算是哭笑不得...吧
不會英文就不要唱呀
呀哈哈

唉令我想念起樂隊的好朋友
wooho假如在場,必定猛作苦瓜死人臉,很不禮貌的拽著我就想奪門而逃
呀哈哈
其實根本不需要像他耳朵那麼尖的
tiffany一定也歪鼻子皺眉頭
walter會做出一副無可奈何的表情
呀小connor在的話,一定猛比手勢,假裝自己被掐死射死
嘿嘿我看他長大也是一個死不正經的
唉可是在場的日文同學們,還是不一樣
到了最後,他們還是說:不錯呀!

最後那個band不是真的聽起來不錯
只是超有精神,很會甩頭髮
令我想起跟panda的談話 - 被stage presence騙了啊!雖然stage presence也很重要...
他們CD上同樣兩首倒是音很準
一定加工過

這禮拜五還要跟dorm的朋友再去喔
哈哈我不是去聽的
我是去看可愛日本男孩甩頭髮的
不過他頭髮那麼多,其實不知道真的可愛不可愛(看不到臉)

下次ひろみ唱歌,我就真正是去聽的
(當然ひろみ也很可愛啦)

ㄇ廢話這麼多,大家讀溺了沒?我也寫累了喲

じゃ、またね~


(下次發誓一定上載照片!)

Aw man.

I was having that awesome dream about rocking out on guitar to that super duper ridiculous outer space version of Rockband (which I've only ever dreamt about once before) when my stupid alarm clock woke me up!

And I was sure I hit dismiss and not snooze but 5 minutes later as I was trying to fall back into the dream it woke me up again.

残念です...

edit: also the reason I haven't updated much is

1. I'm busy

2. I've become addicted to watching jdramas (Debra would approve!!)

and

3. it seems pointless to update in Japanese

mostly the first two haha. life in japan is too much fun! some people may be interested to learn that I attended a church (while remaining utterly atheist). church kids are hecka nice though, even if I don't agree with half of what they say...
