it is officially

~*~ SPRING BREAK~*~

and although i am spending the entire week either on youtube fangirling in my apartment or working in the school's computer lab (which is thankfully open and oh joy it shall be really quiet this week because i will be the only one there as everyone is off to cancun) because i am a huge nerd need to catch up on homework, i am still very excited because the possibilities of this week are endless.

okay maybe not endless, but i am looking forward to getting a shitload of stuff done, which i will list down here because i have no organization skills to speak of and i spend most of my time on lj anyway:

1. clean my apartment because it has been overrun by giant cardboard heads, rolls of hastily designed posters and their slightly better revised versions, huge amounts of prints from my letterpress and photolitography classes, blocks of carved wood from my woodcut printing class, enormous screens for my silkscreen class, etc etc. i'm starting to have a difficult time finding  t-shirts/sneakers/my dignity under all this mess. good thing i'm GRADUATING IN MAY. UGH I CAN'T WAIT.

2. homework (please move on to next number):
    a. history of graphic design -- typographic poster for my organic food manifesto (75% done)
    b. logos class -- 200 logo studies for a concert (50% done)
    c. graphic design 3 -- website for public intervention project (0% done)
    d. portfolio class -- series of 3 posters for a film festival (25% done)
    e. processing -- programming code for an image-driven interactive sketch (done woohoo!!!!)
    f. woodcut/letterpress class -- layout design and illustrations for my rhyming ninja book (0%done)
    g. silkscreen class -- 5 bags and 5 t-shirts printed (done and done)

3. new lj layout and icons! preferably with onew/onkey/onkeyhyun on them. because shinee. come on.

4. watch all the shinee videos on youtube.

5. catch up on drama: bloody monday 2, iris, tokujo kabachi, skins, etc

okay obviously all this cannot be done in a week. but i'm already starting on number one and i'm feeling real good about my chances.

i was feeling kinda down today. just because. you know, general sadness at life and being sooo far away from home and boring stuff like that. so i went on facebook and saw that my best friend ram from back home was online on facebook chat and i decided to assault him with kpop videos. just to cheer myself up, you know? nothing lifts my spirits up like pimping korean boybands to unsuspecting victims. he already knows SNSD because i pimped them to him a while back cause i knew he would get a kick (see what i did there?) out of the choreography of Genie. he's in love with yuri now, but what boy isn't? anyway, i never wanted to show him the boybands because, you know, he'd probably laugh at them for being gay or being fake musicians or whatever. but as i was sad today and i wanted to flail about boys, i linked him to sorry, sorry and mirotic and a bunch of other videos. surprisingly, he came out of it with a profound appreciation for hyukjae's spanish matador outfit and a man-crush on jaejoong. my best friend ram! who's the most un-gay person there is. ram who is in bands that play "real music." ram who is a fratboy and chain smokes lucky strikes. has a man-crush. on fucking jaejoong. it just cheered me right up. and i didn't even tell him i was sad. WHY ARE BEST FRIENDS LIKE THIS?

anyway, the real point of this post is, it's GD's birthday today okay? he's fabulous and gangsta and a dragon and his new album is hot shit and his new mv is even hotter shit so you betta recognize.




HBD GD. ILU

i've been feeling antsy the past two weeks. school's been out a couple months already and there's about a month more till the fall semester starts and i can't believe i'm saying this but i miss school. i know i nearly died during finals week last semester due to excessive stress and brain activity. and i just know that the coming semester is gonna be even more difficult because i felt brave and signed up for one class more than last semester, so good luck niña, here's hoping you'll survive to suffer another semester. i know school's gonna be the death of me so why am i raring to go?

tl;dr and a couple of gifs )

okay i started out wanting to post to do a meme cause i was bored. i guess i'll do that tomorrow.

wow. a five-month hiatus. and i thought i was never gonna update this journal again.

the reason for my disappearance from the wonderful, wonderful world of fandom is the back-to-back bitch slaps that real life had dealt me a few months back.

bitch slap #1
boyfriend (well now, ex-boyfriend) decides to dump me for a model. and he says that's just because i already dumped him, in my mind (!!!!), for nino/arashi/anime/japan.

and bitch slap #2
attempted rape. us fangirls are surprisingly strong. and we have to be, just in case we have to battle other fangirls for a crushboy's attention. or you know, merchandise.

needless to say, RL really fucked me up. and yes, it got to a point where i simply couldn't flail over my beloved boys with as much gusto as i had before. hence the hiatus. so my mother shipped me back to the philippines to recover. there i stayed for a couple of months to get much needed emotional and psychological support from my friends, which they gave me in spades in the form of parties. got back to the states, immersed myself in the dramas i missed while i was away, and found myself a reason to update this journal, which is exactly the same reason i started this journal in the first place: a boy.

but a different boy this time. this one:



 
yes. hongo kanata.

when i saw him in prince of tennis ages ago, i thought  "what a cute little baby." but when i saw him in NANA 2 a while later, where he played Shin (only my favorite character from the manga/anime because he was a hot, young, musician/prostitute) i knew i loved him. enough to add him to my interests on lj and watch all the other dramas he did. enough even to do a background check and youtube video search. but alas, arashi was having the best year of their careers, so kanata hongo was, i hate to admit it, forgotten.

fast forward to yesterday. i was 2 weeks into my MISSED DRAMAS OF 2008 IMMERSION EXTRAVAGANZA and seigi no mikata was up. and there he was. okamoto riku. high school dreamboat. smart boy/musician who is amused/fascinated by protagonist dork girl. only the most perfect character ever, played by kanata hongo AKA cute boy who used to be a baby but is now showing signs of manliness.

i'm still not sure about my feelings for this boy. i don't know if i love him like i love nino (which is, you know, an x-rated type of love) or if i love him in the way i will always love younger boys because i have unresolved high school young love issues and my subconscious will always project my present self into a high shool type of scenario where i'm the dorky girl whom the straight-A jock musician is amused/fascinated by (which is a purer, more innocent type of love where holding hands is the bee's knees).

all i know is i like looking at him. especially around the mouth area. look at those lips! and you can't see it but he has fangs! i was tempted to do a picspam but i was forbidden by my sister because she says that what i call love is, in other places, called pedophilia.

i know, i know. he looks really young. but he's already 18, and where i come from that's legal. hahaha.

1. i just saw tonight's himitsu no arashi-chan on TVU. bwahahaha it was so funny. even if i didn't understand half of what they were saying. nino's "hai~ CUT!" was precious. gaaah. i love nino.

2. then i accidentally caught the last half of the LAST FRIENDS SP when i changed the channel from TBS to Fuji Terebi. i didn't even know it was showing today. gaaaah. i love eita. oh and they showed ads for CODE BLUE cause it's gonna take over LF's time slot. gaaaah. i love yamapi.

3. family drama, laziness. paranoia. running away from real life. self-awareness. this week so far has been lousy.

4. got this meme from [profile] goldengutgirl   


EDIT:

5. go read nino's latest game nikki entry. he talks about how tegoshi is so kawaii and how massu is ...... a really nice guy. hahahahaha. i couldn't stop laughing at this one. it's filled with tegomassu love. who would've thunk it?

Nino loves Tegomassu...♥ cause he puts a heart after their name
