Long time no update no?
The evils of school and Tumblr have kind of taken me hostage. Thus, this blog is kind of dead haha. The cbox is even more dead. It's extinct. The last post on it was from last year xD
If you want to visit my tumblr- it's here--> namingdifficulties.tumblr.com It's filled with the random things I find intriguing and amusing, so you'll get stuff like art, architecture, LOL moments, and whatnot. And a while lot of Inception and Namie Amuro 'spamming'.
Anyway, I'm on school holidays at the moment. It's brilliant really, last term was so hectic and pressuring. The last three days of school were for School Certificate trials, so it was exam after exam with no classes. The papers weren't too hard (I'm worried about my English one though. For some reason English is my weakness,especially with the stupid ambiguous multiple choice questions. Sh*t. Loved the Maths & Science papers though.), but the time factor was certainly a concern, with all the long responses and essays. How sucky is that?
Especially when you are in the midst of a 2 hour paper in the hall and you hear the school bell signaling the change of periods. You end up groaning in despair as you hear the laughter of the rest of the school body as they oh-so-leisurely stroll past the hall towards their next (no doubt) entertaining class. Then you are attacked by the evils of the runny nose. It's not doing anything for your situation either, because you are recovering from what happens to be a terrible cold, in which your throat is constantly plagued by phlegm. You get self-conscious because the hall is so bloody quiet (which is good for concentration actually), that it makes it hard for you to blow your nose into a tissue without the rest of your cohort glancing over in your direction....and you get the point.
But so far I am trying to enjoy my holidays, and squeeze in some study too :)
Do some art, go out with friends, get rid of stress-FINISH THAT GUSTAV KLIMT PAPER+PAINTING.
Imma gonna do that now
I'm almost finished with them, I promise.
btw. SMASH was epic. Though I didn't manage to get Yuko Miyamura's autograph ): I was like, 5 people away from her, and the people were like "Oh I'm sorry, we need to get her up on the main stage. And like, yeah, too bad, you 10 people, we can't spare another minute just for one autograph.".
They didn't really say that, but that was the gist. lolwut xD She seemed pretty nice though.
I didn't really have harsh feelings against the organisers though- they went through a lot to set up the whole thing (which was REALLY FUN ANYWAY :DDDD ). Good on them for doing such a good job this year! I think I might join the organising team when I turn 18.
ALSO. WHY, SUNRISE!!! WHY DID YOU DO THAT TO the GRAHAM AKER IN THE MOVIE D:and here I thought that he was getting back on his epic gundam-loving track. wearenotamused.
SMASH is coming! ALMOST THERE!
I cannot wait to go :D
I am so grabbing my copy of Evangelion 1.01 to get it signed. Yes, I am totally aware of the fact that I just sounded like a complete nerd, but ARE YOU KIDDING ME? FREAKIN YUKO MIYAMURA IS COMING.
Once more can I relax into my (very, very bad) habit of waking up at 12 noon!
I need to stop doing that. I waste like, half the day doing that.
I also need to stop reading fanfiction on my phone before I sleep. It's so hard to find a good one to read. Srsly, most of them make my eyes bleed. And when I do find a good one, the author takes months to update. Well, it's not their fault, but still.
IN OTHER NEWS.
Yeah, I know this is really old, but you know- the World Music Awards never gets broadcast in Australia (at least not on free-to-air), but I'm ecstatic that Namie Amuro won Best Asian Artist this year 8D
I'd thought that she perform some of her newer material at the awards ceremony (y'know, maybe something from her currently chart-topping album PAST>FUTURE that I am currently playing on repeat and am most likely already wearing the CD out?) but she used her style and song from the 'PLAY' era. Still, no biggie. I love 'HIDE & SEEK'.
Come to think of it, that song is probably geared towards the American style of pop music, which is why she performed it.
But really, that doesn't matter.
She seemed quite nervous during the performance xD
BUT CONGRATS AMURO-SAN. OMG. Finally! When I found out, I was so happy for her ^^
She's been making music for so long- I hope I can get to here more material from her in the future.
Wow, I've been MIA for quite a while haha.
Not that anyone should miss me- I doubt anyone reads this but that's not the point.
Last week of school for the term right now. Year 10 has turned out to be a rollercoaster of school work- we have assessments 'Going Towards Our School Certificate' almost every week, and I have been tied up with Peer Mediation training and competition during every single lunchtime.
I don't think I've been able to sit with my friends during lunch for 7 weeks now D:
*has no life*
Blargh, my body of work for art is due too. I need to fix up my Visual Diary.
But we had our Senior School Transition course this week + Computer Skills practice, which meant heaps of free time during classes for me because I knew the work. Heh. I also had a Career interview, which went rather smoothly for me. I told the Deputy and the Careers Adviser that I wanted to head towards a Design/Arts career- maybe Graphic Design, or even Linguistic or Cultural/Social Anthropology. They had no problem with it, even said I could do anything I wanted (which made me happy 8D), but they did approach me regarding a decision as to whether I should do Chemisty or Ancient/Modern History. They said my marks reflected a capability to do either, but as I did point out to them, History was probably a more logical choice to study as opposed to Chem.
Bah, it's so true. And I can't exactly do both because I've filled up all my units. But I love Chemistry xD And I totally hate the essay part of the History course.
I don't exactly want to put too much pressure on my other subjects because the Careers Adviser said combinations of Extension English and Extension Math were rather rare.
Now that I finally remember have the time to sit down and watch TV, I can say 2010 has got a great line up of shows.
Flash Forward, Top Gear (OH YEAH!), Good Game, Mythbusters , Beautiful People, 'Allo 'Allo! (bah, its not new but who cares) etc etc.
But I'm really hooked to Glee.
Never before have I been so in love with a show on TV to the point where I've filled my music player with its songs.Never before had I realised what a Glee club was. <--- Fail
The acting, the storyline, the lovable Chris Colfer characters, comedy, and the music- what's not to love?
The only annoying thing is that Australia has to wait several weeks until the episodes can be broadcasted- which means it's really hard not to bump into spoilers haha.
HOLY CRAP, Chris Colfer, I have even more respect for you. 10-inches is not everyone's cup of tea.
Okay. Unison Square Garden is a band I discovered a few weeks ago while listening to AMPLIFIED~
I really love their style :3
Catchy beats? check.
Awesome singing? check.
Epic Bass Player? CHECK. (gosh you should see how energetic he is)
And here is their latest(?) single 'CODY BEATS' :D
Okay, so it might not be their best PV, action wise, and the Epic Bass Player isn't as super energetic here (or maybe he is), but its got cool CG effects xD And I'm quite addicted to the first 15 seconds of the song.
Was searching for something to get the Iron Man song out of my head when I came across this guy.
I'm really enjoying "Flashback". Looking forward to listening to some more of his music on the weekend :]
