One very distinct form of writing text messages/mail is called ‘gyaru-moji (‘gal characters’ named after the fashion style ‘gyaru’ or ‘gal’ because the people of this fashion style are the ones who often use this kind of lettering). For example Lt wouldn’t correspond to the Latin characters ‘L’ and ‘t’ but instead it would correspond to the hiragana, け (‘ke’). Notice that it looks very similar when written. Many hiragana, katakana and kanji are taken apart and reassembled using different characters including alphabet characters. It is unclear why this usage is now seen. Some believe that this started as a way of making secret messages that a quick peek wouldn’t reveal, while others claim that it was just for fun.
I have no problem eating alone. (Well that was probably clear from my between-tutoring wanderings. :| )
It’s just that in my mind I hear my parents and grandma telling me to “socialize,” so I try to find people to go eat with.
We don’t get grapes or peaches in our dining commons.
Had “family dinner” with my hall today. Though not everybody went, and even though we were all in the same room, we all pretty much sat with the same people whom we see every day. ._.
At the end, some of the girls were asking the boys “Boobs, butts, or legs?”
Our RA chose butts and later posted a link to an SNL clip of a Beauty and the Beast parody-thing that kind of explained his thoughts toward his choice. LOL
Then my roommate started talking about (and showing) what kind of features she would find in the “perfect guy.” I need to remember to compile everything into one drawing for her someday. XD
I thought I was doing the opposite of procrastinating (with some procrastinating in between), but apparently I’ve still managed to screw myself over on the first week. (Well, it’s not that drastic, but yeah.)
I spent a long time answering study questions for HumCore, even though they were merely the retrieve type questions. I hope I don’t get called on or checked tomorrow. Still have to look over tomorrow’s lecture notes some time tonight.
I have to study kanji for the quiz tomorrow. It’s not super difficult kanji or anything. In fact, there are only two or three readings that are new to me, but I still feel the need to give it some worry..
I’m supposed to have chapter 2 of this book for IS read by lecture tomorrow night. I read/skimmed chapter 1 (as told) on Sunday (which I thought was pretty early!) and then started chapter 2 on Monday. But I hadn’t touched it since because I went to volleyball games two nights in a row. =__= Now I have to try to finish tonight. 60 or so pages + notes (my own choice). I don’t know how well that’s going to go…
My mom sent me an email saying she wanted me to edit a picture of my grandpa and wanted it back by tonight/tomorrow, so that took a chunk of my time just now. And here I am writing this. I am terrible.
