Hi. Happy birthday. Sorry I can't come see you at Sukira. I'll be on a field trip to Busan. But I'll think of you.
Don't really know what else to say because it's 4AM and my brain is fried. I should probably sleep now.
I love you. Have an amazing, fantastic, wonderful, and delightful day, filled with bliss, joy, and happiness (there is no such thing as redundancy).
p.s. make your damn comeback already. I'm getting impatient.
My flight's in an hour, and I'm excited and a little nervous. I don't know why; this isn't the first time I've flown internationally by myself. I mean, two years ago, I made the same trip (albeit backwards, from Seoul to SFO) alone. Well anyway... 13 hours from now, I'll be in Seoul! I've been dreaming of this day for so long :)
My dad's going to be there to pick me up, so I won't feel so terrified of being stuck in some foreign language where my language skills are practically non-existent (WHY HAVE YOU LEFT ME, MY KOREAN SKILLZ???). I think it's nice that he gets a lot of business trips all over Asia, so he can come visit me occasionally while I'm there.
I'm totally stocked for entertainment this flight: DS, PSP, and my new laptop that actually has a decent battery life. kekeke
Alright well, see you all later, from Korea! :3
Sorry I haven't updated lately. I've been on sort of a general hiatus. But I don't have much else to do tonight besides sit in bed being dizzy, so...
Spring Quarter! New classes (oh god I want to drop Korean so bad) and teachers and friends and events. I've wasted so much of my college life away... but I really want to get more involved this quarter.
Anyway, EAP has a gazillion forms that I have to fill out and turn in and it's driving me crazy, but aside from that, I am pretty stoked about studying abroad in Korea this summer. To be honest, when I applied, I had visions in my mind of going to Music shows and stalking Teuk at Sukira and stuff. Now I'm just thinking mostly about classes, making friends, clubbing, and shopping and having an actual social life lol. I don't know if that's a good sign or not.
But yeah, I've been checking out a lot of blogs lately, to see what experiences are like at Yonsei.
And LOL this one girl managed to get into GD & TOP's High High MV while she was there. I cannot imagine ever having that kind of luck, but god I wish it would happen. Just walk into a cafe someday (because I cannot imagine Suju ever filming a night-club MV lmao) and see Donghae ordering iced tea or something lol. And then actually end up being a part of the MV? hah. Too bad I'm not white and don't stick out.
I'm worried about money. I really want to buy a new laptop, but I was looking at plane tickets and they were all 1200+ so I'm pretty sure I can't afford one :(
Kiettana 6:00 pm
MY FUCKING ZEKROM
FUCK MY LIFE
GRRard Capashen 6:01 pm
RESHIRAM'S LAUGHING AT YOU
That about sums it up.
Fuck you Nintendo. I'm serious. Why on earth would you make it so you cant check natures until AFTER you beat both final bosses and the credits roll and it automatically saves for you? That's just so stupid and now I want to bash my head against a wall because my Zekrom is the utter epitome of shit. What am I supposed to do? Keep it as a subpar physical sweeper? Or make it into a failure mixed sweeper? I dont even... UGH. WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY?
So yeah. Apart from that...
PSP is coming in on Wednesday. I'll probably drown my sorrows by playing lots and lots of Dissidia and Crisis Core. Except I have a final and a paper on friday lol. This week... is crazy.
To be honest, PSP has always been pretty far down the list when it comes to consoles I've always wanted to buy. But recently the news (and trailer omfg you have to watch it) of Dissidia 012 have REALLY MADE ME WANT A PSP. Originally, I was going to save up for a PS3, but now that I'm looking at the list of games...
PSP games I really want to play:
- Final Fantasy Dissidia
- Final Fantasy Dissidia Duodecim
- Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep
- Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core
- Final Fantasy Tactics
- Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
- Final Fantasy IV + the After Years
But... PS3 games I really want to play:
- FINAL FANTASY XIII
But yeah, looking at this list in a non-biased way, it's pretty obvious which one I should get. Price for PSP = 130, price for PS3 = 300. /cries why am I so poor?! ;A;
Lissa you should lend me your PS3. I will give you my love forever and ever ♥♥♥♥♥
On another note... I should be studying for my finals, but I'm sitting here playing Pokemon. 7th gym right now, 4 pokemon in team. I probably won't be using any of these for my competitive team, but I am proud of my Chandelure. Bred 27 of these Litwick bitches before I got a Modest one with decent IVs.
Edit: I bought it. It was on a whim. After studying for my Korean final for 4 hours, I was in a bad mood and really needed a pick-me-up, which always involves spending money. So yeah. Got my PSP 3000 and 3 games (Dissidia, Crisis Core, and Tactics) coming in on wednesday lmao.
I'm so fucked for my Poli 13 essay.
So despite my very best efforts to make sure I would not waste money on the new pokemon game, this hoar here spent a whole day spazzing to me about it (although her spazz was at times, quite negative, so I'm not sure why this happened) and so I ordered white version against my best judgement this afternoon. Finals are next week. I am pretty much screwed.
Our conversation follows along these lines:
elisanwhatnot: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFU MY SMUGLEAF GOT A GENTLE NATURE.
Kiettana: RESTART BITCH.
elisanwhatnot: SRS HAVE TO REROLL.
elisanwhatnot: THAT’S FREAKING GARBAGE.
elisanwhatnot: YES I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE MY FUCKING POKEMON A NICKNAME.
elisanwhatnot: what to call this son of a bitch….
elisanwhatnot: Omg.... she just said, "Me and Oshawatt."
elisanwhatnot: IT'S OSHAWATT AND I, YOU UNCOUTH IMBICILE. NOW I'M GOING TO BEAT YOU TWICE AS HARD. GOD THIS IS WHY WOMEN BELONG IN THE KITCHEN AND NOT CATCHING POKEMON.
Anyway, not 3 hours after I placed my order, she tells me that jaykay she bought white instead of black like she said earlier. Amazon: "It's too late, you can't change your order."
FUUUUUUUUUUU DAMMIT LISSA.
But I do love her for getting me a celebi ♥
Also, life sucks right now. Putting off a korean project as always, and feeling lonely :(
There's actually been a lot of stuff going on lately that I wanted to talk about at the time, but now I don't remember what to say anymore.
Truthfully, LJ has become rather dull to me. It's a pity that I think this now, after having actually paid money for it, but well...
Not saying I'm going to abandon this or anything, but I'm definitely spending more time on tumblr these days.
Life? Life is hard and tiring. I just pulled 2 allnighters in the last 4 days and I'm incredibly exhausted.
I don't feel like doing anything productive lately. I don't even feel up to drawing anymore. Although Pums and I will be doing an art trade, wherein I have to draw her more Mimi (surprise). Hopefully that'll give me more motivation :3
Loved the academy awards, but my roommate pissed me off for acting incredibly superior the entire night. But it's okay, because Anne Hathaway was gorgeous and she and James Franco should go get married plz.
So... yeah, just thought I'd share some more gifs I've made recently.
Fierce Mimi *___* ♥
I'm really proud of this one. It took me about 3 hours to make (the fireworks drove me crazy), but I like how it turned out.
( And more under the cut :)Collapse )
HOW IS POSSIBLE TWO OF THE HOTTEST THINGS EVER WERE RELEASED WITH MERE HOURS OF EACH OTHER, AND AT 3 IN THE MORNING WHEN I HAD TO SLEEP CUZ I HAD AN EXAM IN THE MORNING ADL;KFJADSF
KAHI IS SO DAMN HOT I DONT EVEN AASDL;FKJASDF SHE IS OFFICIALLY #3 GIRLCRUSH AFTER HYORI AND BOA BECAUSE OH MY GOD. HER DANCING AND HER BODY AND HOW CAN SHE BE 30 WHEN SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE'S 20 ;A;
AND OMFG SJ-M /DIES
SEX. THAT IS ALL I CAN SAY. SEEEEEXXXXXXXXXX
Now for a more coherent review... I could barely hear Min at all, nor could I hear Henry, but that might just be because I don't recognize Henry's voice well. I LOVE the chorus, but I don't really like the parts where they're just repeating the same note, and it's all autotuned :(
Kyu's voice was eargasm, I swear. CANNOT WAIT FOR MV IT WILL BE SO HOT
Oh, and Happy Valentines day! Usually I dread this day, but today I'm spending it with 8 gorgeous men and one extremely sexy lady, so I'm good :D
Dat's rite bitches, Photoshop CS5!
I've been stuck with Photoshop 7 for the last 8 years. All this time, I've felt like a neanderthal, struggling with Windows 95 while everyone else is flashing around their shiny Windows 7. And now I've finally upgraded to the best editing/art program out there. *sniffle*
However, so much has changed between 7 and CS5 (which is technically like, 12 :|) that I no longer know what the hell is going on anymore.
/slowly presses random buttons and fiddles around
Anyway, hopefully this means my art will be a little better, since my tablet seems to work better with CS5. Thank God too. What's the point blowing 300 bucks on an Intuos if it can't even reach its full potential? Also, making gifs in CS5 is like, 9348723 times easier than it is in Imageready :DD
Anyway um... Sorry this post was so pointless OTL. But here, let me share some gifs that I made! :D
The only one I refuse to put under a cut, because everyone needs to see the sex that is Don't Don Teuk
( click for more sexiness and cuteness in motion :DCollapse )
On a personal whine-about-life note, my favorite Korean T.A. is moving to Washington D.C. ;A;
How am I supposed to survive another quarter and a half without her? She's the only one who understood how crappy I was at Korean, and was willing to put out extra help just for me. What if the new T.A. just thinks I'm retarded and fails me? :(
So after talking to dip_eiffel_tea, I felt motivated enough to finally finish my Zhou Mi painting that I've been working on for the last friggin month. I started on the day I flew back to San Diego on the 2nd, but things kept popping up and I never had time or motivation to work on it. Made for vintagentleman 's Book of Love.
Anyway, here it is! Precious Mimi :)
I had so many problems with this drawing. For one thing, my reference photo was cut off right at his chin, so I literally had NO CLUE how to color his neck. I mean, male necks? That is as foreign territory to me as amphibian morphology. So that's why it's just a weird blob. I tried my best ;____;
The chinese is from the last 2 lines of the Super Girl chorus. Changed it from simplified to traditional though, because traditional is prettier, but honestly, my penmanship is so terrible that I doubt it made a difference lol
But in the end, I'm happy. Beautiful man is beautiful :) ♥
I dont think I'll be doing any more of these for a while though. It's exhausting, a little stressful, and makes me want to bang my head against the wall in frustration. Especially not since the only 2 members I'm currently interested in drawing (Teuk and Heechul) don't have their birthdays till July, lol.

Comments & critique are greatly loved ^^
fuck yeah nerd teuk
WHERE ARE ALL MY TEUK STANS AT? :|
GO GO GO LISTEN TO HIS NEW SONG. YEAH OKAY, IT'S ALSO KRYSTAL'S SONG, BUT WHATEVER. SHE'S MOSTLY JUST HARMONIZING WITH HIM ANYWAY.
I think this is the first time I've heard him sing more than 20 seconds in any recorded track, and a;sdfja;jsdhf his voice is beautiful ;___;
It's sad how nobody really gives him much of a chance. I was so proud of him when he got the highest score in the Enjoy Today singing thing. I just hope he gets more lines in the next album. He's improved so much and I... *sniffle* ♥ ♥ ♥
I could listen to him forever, I love this song so much ;A;
LMFAO TEUK YOU PEDO. First Yoona, now Krystal? I know you like to play with the girls' hearts, but you're almost old enough to be Krystal's dad. I liked her response though. They're really cute together :)
FUCK YEAAHHHHH!! *dances around like a madwoman*
My dad called me today and finally approved of my study abroad plans. That was pretty much my biggest obstacle to going: paying for it. My family doesn't get any financial aid, so I was afraid my parents would object to having to pay an extra 16k dollars. And well, they were a little against it, but I promised I'd try to get a job teaching English or something while I was there, and pay around 4k out of my own pocket.
I still have to actually turn in my application, but since nobody really gets turned down for EAP, and I meet all the requirements, my trip is pretty much set :)
So yeah. This summer, around mid-June, I'll be taking that flight to Seoul. And I'll be staying 6 months at Yonsei University. a;dfja;djfhadf I'm so excited I don't even know what to think anymore XDDD
I'm a little worried about my classes, because they look kind of hard and time consuming, so I hope I'll still have time to go out and have fun
and stalk Teuk. I just really wish this could have happened last year, because WORLD CUP IN A COUNTRY THAT ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT FOOTBALL? Oh man... I would have given anything to be there. I'll be sure to make the trip again in 2014. Or maybe to Brazil :P
One of my friends studied at Yonsei summer of last year, and he said it was the best time of his life. Then again, he's a lot more social than me. Goes out drinking a lot. I also don't like spicy food, so I'm not sure how I'll fare in that area... Although I heard food is cheap, so that's good :)
I just have one wish for this trip: Teuk please don't leave for the army. I'm giving up so much to fly across the world to see you. Just give me this one year, this one last year. ;___;
And don't be scared if you see me drooling against the Sukira window every night. It only means I love you ಠ_____ಠ
p.s. you people going to SS3 singapore, I hate you ;A;
