Hmmm, not really sure of what to write.
Looking back at my previous entries, its interesting to see the progression between then and now.

Anywho, I've been to the library and took out some french books to help me get back into the language. Its strange how a year is plenty of time to forget about 7-8 years of learning. So I am going back to basics and refreshing myself on simple french grammar as well as reading the french books to help improve my grammar.

Also, I have been playing Rayman Origins on the PS3 and the artwork is quite nice and has an appealing look to it. I believe Ubisoft came up with a specific engine for the artwork of that game. Pretty Cool.

I learned Rikku's Theme

mood: sick sick

So after practicing piano on and off for about a month and a half, I finally was able to learn Rikku's Theme from Final Fantasy X, The piano collections version. It is quite accomplishing. The next song I hope to learn is Love me by Yiruma, although I may learn another Final Fantasy song :)

I've also been reading Vampire Knight, and the art is a bit inconsistent. Sometimes the characters are drawn and look really pretty and other times their features are kinda off. It is quite confusing but there is something about it that is drawing to me continue reading until the latest chapter. I thought it was a finished series, unfortunately for me it is ongoing.

Just another day

Hello again!

So I didn't do much today but I printed out 'The River Flows in You' and 'Love Me' by Yiruma sheet music and I am quite excited to play it. I also played some Marvel VS Capcom and so far I think Amaterasu, Wolverine and X-23 is my party so far. I also played Rayman Origins and I must say its such a visually appealing game and I strongly recommend it. Its refreshing to see a game with sharp and fun visuals with an amusing gameplay. Its 2D platformer style and the artists did a great job with putting layers of color and background to give depth to something that would otherwise be flat.

And I hope to read Life of Pi soon. I also got volume 8 & 9 of La Cordo d'oro.

After the hiatus....

Wow oh wow. A post after how many years, haha.

Hm, I;m not really sure where to start but I was browsing around Live Journal and thought why not just post something. It is kind of amusing to read after looking back and what I posted. So far, I just finished the Japanese Drama (You taught me all the precious things) with Miura Haruma and Erika Toda. The first two episodes were quite good and it made the drama look promising. After those episodes, the plot seemed kinda slow with emotions going back and forth but after finishing it I must say I was satisfied and it was one of those dramas that made me think. What the main character went through and the decisions he had to make seemed really realistic and applicable to life.

I also got a giant pile of books from the library. The books I hope to read are Life of Pi and this other book I can't remember ( I will mention later when I remember).

I'm also trying to learn Love me by Yiruma on the piano and this classical Bach song to help improve my technique.

So far that's it. It kinda nice in a way to post again.

"More than a month of no updating ---- to be honest I actually forgot O.o"

As I see, time has flown past me. I have been really productive and making great use of this summer, unlike last year, where I struggled to do something other than warcraft :P

But I am kind of proud of myself at the fact that I am slowly getting into routine and trying my best not waste time. Also, from the last time I updated, quite a lot has happened. On July 11, I watched Harry Potter 5 and O waited 2 hours before, so I had good seats. And then a few days after, I saw it again with Zaynah. I must say, that was the best day, and it still is. It was really, really fun, and I hope we have more days like that :) Sushi !!

And, a week after, I went to chapters and bought 100 dollars worth of books; it felt good because it has been quite a while since I have bought a book. One of the books I bought was Eragon, and I am going to read it very soon. I also bought this harry potter series book holder, and it really makes hold my books well :D

In addition to that, I went to Pacific Mall and it was great, but the store had changed. I got a purple headband, Hitomi Shimatani's Prima Rosa album, a few stationary, 2 keychains, and a clock.
And the week after that, I went school shopping.

And now I arrive to now. I have been reading, drawing, painting, and playing a lot of piano. I have been working really hard, but in the end, its fun. For me, the summer is not at all boring. To be honest, I enjoy the me time, all by myself, fufufufu ~

I think that's it. It feels nice to post after a while.. ^.^

Summer !

Jun. 28th, 2007 | 04:38 pm
mood: humid humid
music: Arashi - Kitto Daijoubu

"It's super, super hot outside!"

I think today was the official last day of school because I got my final exam marks and my report. I think I did alright on the exams, but since my marks from other assignments were quite high, my final mark was at all bad :D And I gave my teachers a card and flowers and they really liked it.

And its really hot outside. The air is filled with hot air and its all humid. Its really making me sick and its hard for me to breathe at times. I cannot even play tennis because of that, and all the bugs are outside which makes it worse. But at least there are not any mosquitoes. As for the flowers, some of them have wilted so I must water them 3 times a day. I am really tired today for some reason, so I think I will relax some more, but I need to practice piano soon ~

I think that's it!

Plus de Jello pour moi :P

mood: I have a tummy ache I have a tummy ache
music: Gackt - Returner Yami no Shuuen

"Mes pauvres fleurs......et je besoin manger plus de jello --- deliciuex!"

Yesterday I thought I would get better by eating Jello and soup, but unfortunately my tummy was hurting really badly this morning and it hurt even more when I attempted to get up from bed. At least I can sit up right now as I write this post. I just had a bowl of strawberrry Jello which kind of calmed my tummy. And then I ate an egg with some orange juice.

I must say this vacation so far is pretty good. Even though I'm not doing much, I'm letting my body relax as much as I can and taking every slow like a snail. I still have 4 days unitl I actually follow a mild routine. After my exams, I had a week off before report cards so I used those days to do nothing or just sleep a lot. I can feel it inside that I am really rejeuvinated. :3

As for the plants, the front area  of red flowers  wilted and  they look a bit dead.  The evil scorching sun burned them. I think I'll need to buy new ones and water the flowers 3 times a day, its just to hot out there. My mommy watered them this morning, and an hour later the soil was dry.

And, I have been saving up for 7 months, and I have more than enough to buy an iPod Video with 30 GB. I'm still thinking if I should buy it or not. I'll wait a few more weeks.
I think that's it. Bye Bye!

Gardening !

"My tummy hurt  today and I needed to eat Jello ALL day"

When I woke up this morning, I had a terrible tummy ache and couldn't even get up. So I went to sleep and woke up two hours later. But my tummy was still hurting so my mommy told me to eat Jello, and I lived off that all day.

But after that my aunt, my cousin, my mommy, my sister, and I went to Tim Hortons and the Garden Store to spend some quality time together. It was quite fun :D And when we went to the garden store, there were so many pretty and colorful flowers. They were all on sale which made it even better. There was this strawberry flower that was originally five dollars but it was put down to two dollars! I like sales.... :P

Then around 5, we started gardening, and I enjoyed the whole way through. We had a rectangle with a rose patch, a giant circle beside the stairs, and a big triangle shaped box near the window of our house. I planted purple and white flowers in the rose area, a long white clementis vine in the circle about 25 cm tall, and pink, red, and green flowers in the triangle. The finished product was really pretty to look at.
And that was my day ^_______________^
I am counting down to Harry Potter 5 movie and Harry Potter 8 book ~ !

All done !

"After weeks of memorizing, I am all done my exams. Yay!"

As you can see, today was my last day of exams. Yesterday, I had a geography exam and it was alright. There was this one question that I didn't know how to do; it was something about maps. And today I had the History and English Exams. For History, it was alright as well because I tried really hard to memorize a lot of the dates, and they were getting mixed up in my head. But, for the first time, I was able to finish my essay and have fifteen minutes to spare. I felt really good because I could review and in the past tests I was always scrambling to finish. I still have a bit of anxiety about it because there was this poster and I had to interpret the meaning of it. That was one of the questions that bothered me.

In English, we had to read a 6 page story and answer fifty multiple questions. In my opinion, it was not as bad as I thought it would be, but still I don't want to have hopes because anything can happen. Anyways, I feel relieved that the exams are finished. Still I need to remember that this is just the beginning. And because of that, I try not to stress too much. I learned a lot and it was my first biggest change in school life, so in the future I hope to improve and learn from this.

For my summer, I'm not really sure what I'm going to do, but for this week, I just want to relax and do nothing, maybe draw. But that's it. Really, I can finally relax ^___________________^

Zaynah, we are both done! I really hope to see you soon!

I think that's it. At least its an update :D That just shows how busy I was....

First entry of May

"It's a new layout! And, I saw a movie yesterday !!"

There is always a reason for my 'rare' updates. I have been very busy, and its almost the end of the year so all the major projects and tests are coming one after the other. At least, I have time right now to make a nice entry :D
So far, I have been studying for my 2nd History unit test. I think it was a major improvement from the last time I wrote the first Unit test because I was rushing to finish up my essay, and I was still writing 10 minutes after class. But for this one, I managed to finish right in time. Also, I have been working hard on English. We are reading "Much Ado About Nothing," and we need to do dramatizations next week.  But we had to write a comparison paragraph. It was a comparison between Don Pedro (Much ado About Nothing) and Uncle Axel (The Chrysalids).  I needed to make a topic sentence and find quotes on Thursday and write the paragraph on Friday. I think this was an improvement to because on my first summative, I blanked out and I was rushing to make my paragraph make sense. But in this, I had butterflies in my tummy, but I was sort of calm; hopefully I do well.
*starry eyes

Yesterday, I went to watch Spider Man 3. All the shows were sold out, but we got our tickets online. We were one of the first people to line up and I got a really good spot :D I must say, I really enjoyed the movie, but I was kind of dissapointed. They didn't show much of Venom in the movie, and he didn't seem to have a great part. Nevertheless, I still liked the movie !

As for the weekend, I need to finish off my ISU and ISP book and hopefully and I can draw something. And did I mention, I actually like IB, yay!
And, the weather is really pretty outside, almost time for gardening ^_________^

I think that's it, byebye!
