REPETITION IS KEY

at the beginning of an exam period, i always think, yeah let’s do this! i put on an imaginary Japanese headband that says ‘succeed’ (i use to have a real one but it got lost during the move) and I think, i have x days before the first exam and x more days after the first, i can do this! i can do this!!!!

so in the beginning, it’s not so bad, things are moving swimmingly and you think, hey it’s okay, i may be able to do this after all.

then after the 3rd day, it gets bad, it gets real bad, i have self-induced headaches thinking about the exams. i start wearing sweatpants, EVEN WHEN I GO OUTSIDE!! I put on headbands that keep hair out of my face, even though i have effing short hair.

but hopefully, i’ll stay sane.

because i smile when i see this :D

STILL HERE TO SAY HELLO

OUR LADY PEACE – SUPERMAN’s DEAD

I never listen to my mom when she says it’s cold outside! my chosen outfit is for INDOORS ONLY, of course i went out, and hurt my back, and my shoulder. I am here blogging to you at 9 am in the morning having not slept all night long, i decided to just get out of bed, showered, put on many medicine patches (the smelly ones)!

i dont know how i am going to survive the binge fest tonight. but i will! because this is what people do when they’re on break…! or so i think!

HELLLLOO BATMAN!

I dont know what it is with NIKE and their advertising, makes you wanna get up and run a mile, but my determination goes as far as purchasing a pair of new shoes, never actually running. But as far as nike is concerned, that’s their goal anyway. Their recent one, is pretty amazing! check it out after the cut

Spontaneously decided to go to richmond, luckily OUR LADY PEACE was playing tonight, got to catch them live! They’re a really great Canadian band that i’ve ALWAYS known about but never really knew about. But, seriously, nothing sound as good as it does live. Arkells played as well, i really like their JOHN LENNON song.

made some new friends of the forest?

So this is vancouver, at 1 am in the morning, night of beating switzerland 3 – 2 in men’s hockey after a shoot out, it’s not a great win, but it’s still a win. CONGRATULATIONS! We take our hockey VERY seriously UP HERE!

also congratulations to NESBITT for the unexpected GOLD in 1000 meter women’s LONG TRACK speed skating!

i am avoiding email checking, i am having too much fun, i dont want real life to catch up to me yet.

UGH

EXAM TIME MUST BE WHAT FOREVER FEELS LIKE

none the less, i went to this club /lounge /restaurant saturday night called OCEAN CLUB for my friend’s birthday

got lost getting there, three times! If you’re wondering how that is possible, it is, when no one knows the way and the printer ran out of ink while printing instructions on google maps!

Since you were in such a hurry you didn’t notice that the map wasn’t fully printed, nor were the instructions…

the DJ was really cute, really cute from far away, when i was getting up to go home i saw him up close, ehhh, not so cute anymore!! =_= you know what i’m talkin about!!

had my first ever, cosmopolitan! only reason i ordered it was because of Sexy and the City, i was wondering what all the fuss was about, wish they served it in a martini glass! but alas, it was a rowdy place, served it in a more sturdy glass..

my friend’s dinner

mine~~ the chicken was really good :D

Sigh, got home around midnight, while everyone else partied on, that’s the life of a student..

pfffttt..

I AM ABSOLUT

MUWAHAHAHAHA! Does any other city have Absolut edition vodkas?

this made me so psyched that I ran out and bought it :D I still have a 1.5L bottle of Smirnoff left in my kitchen, shhh don’t let the Absolut hear (it lives on my desk)

I was sleepy then I thought, yeah it’d be a good idea to sleep Non?

but then i started to read over some notes, then i couldn’t stop and here i am, blogging at 1 am because i dont know what tired means.

oh yeah!

i got quite a few reactions when i posted the 500 Days of Summer trailer and I finally saw the movie a few weeks back.

what can i say, if i met a boy that behaved like Summer, he’d never have kids (if you catch my drift)

Perhaps this isn’t the reaction, or the point of the movie, it is after all a Story about Love and not a Love Story, but no matter what her excuse is.

and yeah i agree perhaps GJL (gordon-joseph-levitt) could have been more agressive; but summer could have been less of a bitch ( i love you zooey! :D)

i just felt like summer lead him on, on and on and on, while clearly knowing how he feels about her, and that’s pure untained love, albeit he was blinded by love and it probably wasn’t what he thought it was..

honestly i dont think fighting for her would have made the problem go away.

it’s not right to treat someone like that, and i know, and I KNOW.

yeah, you know who you are, asshole

and good night :D

P.S. SHOUT OUT to my 2 new subscribers on RSS! I went from sad digits of 22 to 24! Thank you for making me so happy!

wouldn’t it be nice?

so my friend and i went to Vancouver international film festival and saw CASTAWAY ON THE MOON (above trailer) and it was so funny, and yes it made me tear up a bit here and there.

then we went to this new izakaya called kakurenbou? it was amazing, the food was good but the ambience and the decor was just amazing. it was styled like traditional japanese izakayas maybe in the 30s? Everything on the menu was really old school and there was a faux roof of a parler on the inside.

ah i try to do so many jumping pics, although this one is in mid-air im not fully in the frame..

im pretty bad obviously, look at ALL THAT FOAM

FOAM

Saturday People

BLUE RIBBON! –> LOL, it’s cheap..and i like domestic beer. I don’t care if my friends make fun of me *__* I can’t afford heineken!

Drove down to the casino so we could (well i could) take the new train to the airport! I got off at the wrong station and was separated from my friend =_= I had to wait 10 minutes in the dark night ALONE! While everyone on the train laughed.. “HaHA SHE DIDNT MAKE IT!!”

Apparently the train is made in korea~~ now we can re-enact all our favorite korean drama scenes, esp the ones from my sassy girl :D

doesnt it look like the talking tree in Pocahontas??

My friend had a coupon for the new ANGRY WHOPPER!
