No one is afraid of heights, they are afraid of the fall, No one is afraid to play, they are afraid to lose, no one is afraid of the dark, they are afraid of what's in it, no one is afraid to say "I love you", they are afraid of the response.
“I think we’re a kind of desperation. We’re sort of a maddening luxury. The basic and essential human is the woman, and all that we’re doing is trying to brighten up the place. That’s why all the birds who belong to our sex have prettier feathers / because males have got to try and justify their existence.”—
I looked it up because I was thinking of The Truth About Forever, and this is the definition I got: faint from extreme emotion; be emotionally affected by someone or something that one admires; become ecstatic
Followed by the example: teenagers swoon over Japanese pop singers.
“Music is a total constant. That’s why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in your or the world, that one song says the same, just like that moment.”—
Even though my mom said she didn’t want to go shopping today, I think she did because she’s planning to water the orchids tomorrow instead of today. Went to Great Mall. I sat (and slept) in Group USA forever just waiting for her to try on dresses and stuff. She didn’t get one in the end because the one she wanted was little bit torn in the back or something. Then we went to Nike because Kevin wanted Nike shoes. Not that he needs new shoes. There’s something about him liking name brands (well, only Nike, really) that pisses me off. So from then on, I was in a bad mood. Then Shannon and her friends come along and ask for a ride even though she knows the car only fits 5 people. -__- Didn’t go far in Old Navy because we saw the long lines. Couldn’t even get into Gap because they were at max occupancy. -_-
Went to buy pumpkin pie before I even got to eat breakfast. xD
Grandma, aunt, and cousin & her boyfriend came~ Almost went to watch a movie, but they all watched 2012 already, and my cousin already watched New Moon. :\ Everyone went out and I was left home alone, well until I found out my mom was also home. Hahaha
Made pudding pie, but it didn’t turn out that great because it the crust is actually pretty flaky & thin. -_-
We actually had a turkey & mashed potatoes! Too bad there was no gravy.. Ate turkey with ketchup! :D The adults ate hot pot.
I want to watch Up tonight. My dad’s watching Harry Potter right now, and my mom wants to wait till 9:00 when she’s done with her Chinese dramas. -_- But I know she’ll probably fall asleep before we finish watching Up. When I told my dad, he was like “Where’d you get it?” And my mom walked in and said in this condescending voice, “She probably went and bought it. Why would you buy it? You can just borrow it/rent it.” Such negative responses, gosh. =___= Of course I went and bought it! You wouldn’t buy it for me… >:|
Probably won’t go shopping tomorrow. :< My mom hates Christmas shopping because it’s so crowded, and you can’t find parking spaces. Instead, she wants to water her orchids tomorrow morning. asdlfj;
Overslept even more than usual this morning because Shannon didn’t turn on her alarm clock (since she didn’t have school today). =_= It’s a good thing it was a minimum day.
Played Catchphrase in first period. Kind of annoying.. Presented my famous artist, Durer. I don’t think I did that great; I realized I didn’t talk about what else was going on during his lifetime. :x Thanksgiving quiz & Charlie Brown! Thank you, Mr. Taylor! xD Sensei gave us the most loser quiz (as Guttal would say, haha) ever, probably in the history of the SCTHJP.. though I need to work on humble forms. xP It turns out I made the stupidest mistake on my free response. I could’ve gotten 2 more points! >< Stayed more than half an hour after sixth period ended to finish the physics quiz. It was only 10 questions this time, and yet I still spent forever doing it. -_- Went to Guttal’s afterwards but didn’t really do anything, and she was going to leave soon so I just called for a ride then.
Slept for 2 hours when I got home, though it felt much longer… I dreamed that Mr. Taylor imprisoned us (Sally, Johanna, me, and some other people). And every time we tried to escape, we’d get caught. And Johanna was going to punch through the concrete walls with her fists to get us out. In the end, we were stuck inside, and suddenly we had to do our math homework. Ms. Guttal was yelling at me for doing a problem the loser way…
When I woke up, I found that everyone already ate dinner, even though it was only like 5:30. o_o I made プリン again! :D Hopefully they’ll be yummy when I eat them tomorrow. It’s sad how so many ingredients are used up, how much time and energy is put into making them, and in the end it’s only 4 custard cups. :|
Sometimes you just want to put other peoples happiness before yours. Because you love them, because they deserve it. Sometimes you want to go out of your way for people, just because you know its important that they get a chance to smile.
Number one priority tonight is to do my famous artist report. Then comes Japanese and English… but I probably won’t get to those until tomorrow. xP
C- in art because I haven’t finished much and can’t shade properly. Depressing. -_- We have to make a thermos for our physics lab. Too bad Amber won’t be here to help us..
Stopped by Safeway on the way back to school and bought canned vegetables with my leftover dinner money. Later Ms. Guttal said she bought cans at Target for 49 cents each. I was gonna buy mine at Target at first (since I went to buy Up anyway), but I decided on a whim to go to Safeway, which sells the cheapest ones at 79 cents each. >< Carrying all this stuff today was tiring. I think I’ll bring my cans another day. Bumped into Anh on the way back, and I think she’s convinced me to go to Zen Cafe tomorrow. I guess I will if I can get the money. .__.
I stayed up till like 4:00 doing dailies… And I didn’t even finish. Oh well.
Learned about color in art today! It was a sort of pleasant surprise. I’m presenting my artist on Wednesday and haven’t started yet. >< Didn’t fall asleep in history today! Watched hilarious skits in Japanese today. xD
Went to L&L for dinner today, which I regret. -_- Felt bad after eating all that chicken katsu stuff and spending so much on it. Felt sick for a while… Did homework with My-Linh in Leadership while waiting for tutoring. She ate the left over chicken katsu. Haha
My parents are watching a Chinese movie, but I can’t watch it with them because I have math & English to do.
Still just beginning to read about the new chapter in math, but I’m really hoping the homework is easy like she said it would be. I have like 24 dailies to write. And I’m only on Act 3 in The Crucible. Really there’re about 50 pages left to read. Maybe it’ll be okay if I don’t finish it tonight though..
"Yesterday I turned my calculator on to do my math homework and ‘I love you’ was written on the screen. My boyfriend said ‘I wrote it last Sunday and I’ve been waiting all week for you to turn it on.’ He knows I’m struggling with precalc and he can’t help me, but his love and support make me want to do my best. It GMH."
