So, I'm redoing this bad boy just so it's current. I don't really use this tho
I'm 921227, tho most people call me Alex! I'm 23, a business graduate currently living in the east coast US. I work with children.
I'm a big kpop fan and have been so since high school. Some of my earliest groups were SHINee, KARA, Wonder Girls, UKISS, FTI and over the years I've gotten into a lot more. I love rookies! Red Velvet, Oh My Girl, Seventeen, Up10tion, April and WJSN are some of my faves right now, but the list is quite long. I love merch, I own about 50 individual albums and still buying. I've seen B1A4 and b.a.p (2x) in concert and am super sad more girl groups don't come to the states.
Other interests include reading (fiction and non), anime, nail art, writing, hgtv and the food network, ink master, project runway in any incarnation and more stuff that I can't think of at the moment.
Anway, I'm done here, feel free to add or chat with me in other places. I think I have links somewhere
Now that the semesters over, I don't have any classes until August. So, basically, I've nothing to do but sit around the house the entire week until it's time for work. It's nice, I guess, but I should probably figure something to do so I don't just be lazy for the next couple of months. A friend of mine suggested I get a full time job, but I don't...I don't think that's a good idea because I know I wont be able to keep up with it once school does start back up, plus I like how much I work right now and I want to continue my job for a while before I become jaded and angry about it like some other people.
Maybe I should pick up a hobby or something, invest my time in a task other than my computer??? Nah...I don't think so.
I guess I'll figure something out soon. Hopefully. Maybe.
I've recently become a big fan of nail polish/nail art so I'm really excited that today a box of polish I ordered from mingsunni had arrived in the mail and it was all so wonderful~!!! The colors were so vivid and went on smoothly, I was surprised since I'd never worn the brands before even though I wanted- they just don't sell them where I live OTL. I wish I had more than one pair of hands so I could use them all, but sadly I don't so I just used three. T~T.... Thank you mingsunni~! and good luck on your move~!!!
Maybe I'll upload a picture of my nails once I clean them up some....
EDIT: Don't mind the crap-tastic webcam pictures....I couldn't find my camera OTL.
( look! pretty nails~!Collapse )
The yellow is OPI Lemonade Stand By Your Man which I really liked since all the yellows I own are more creme based, but this wasn't and it had just enough shimmer to be interesting. The purple is Sinful Colors Let's Talk which went on like a dream; it honestly only needed one coat for full coverage which is plus since I've never used it before. And the glitter is Sephora Too Good For HIm, another first try. It's hard to see on the picture, but the glitter is really dense purple with a bit of blue/silver/pink thrown in.
All in all, I'm supremely satisfied with my new polishes!
The thing with anime for me, is that no matter how interesting or cool the characters or plot is, if I get bored with the visuals, I can't manage to finish it. Michiko e Hatchin I had no trouble finishing because everywhere was complete eye candy. From the towns and scenery, to the character design- it was all so colorful and just gush worthy that I wanted to keep watching.
( word vomit ahead~!Collapse )
tl;dr this was amazing and I really enjoyed it and my only regret is that I don't speak Portuguese. Now, to find the OST because, ugh, ultimate ear candy.
So...I think I'm experiencing my first bout of true writers block and it's quite annoying -_-.... Seriously though, I've never actually had writers block, but now that there's stuff I want to write that not coming out it's terribly frustrating. I want to write ALL THE THINGS but am succeeding in writing some of the things and those some are....well, not my best~ >:[ I'm sure it'll only take some time before I"m back in top form, but for now, I'll combat this with proactivity~!
Forward and onto joining some sort of comm~!! lol maybe I should join Omona~ :P
dear sweet jesus what is this sudden want/needurge to write exo fic?!? they haven't even properly debuted yet/we have no idea about them and yet they ship themselves in some giant OT12 love polygon that NEEDS to be written in some way and sm markets them like some avatar/legend/superpower having bbs and......
but, i don't even write boy groups tho... idk... i guess they can be the exception... /feels for bb rookie groups
For close to a week, our internet has been gone and it's only just recently gone back up. These passed few days have been.....interesting. At first, I was frustrated because, hello, I love the internet. I love looking at blogs and pictures of cats and checking my email and all sorts of things so when it went down I, understandably, was put out.
But then I looked on the bright side. The silver lining~ if you will.
Without working internet, I cleaned my room- something I've been putting off for a while. I also wrote and doodled and colored and read actual paper books and comics and I freaking loved it. I read some manga I've had in my closet for years and completely fell in love again, I read both of the Zora Neale Hurston books I own and was completely moved at the writing. I even reread A Little Princess for the first time in nearly a decade and had to actually stop and cry everything out because it was so lovely and enjoying to read.
Not having the internet....it has literally been like I was transported back in time where personal computers were only meant for playing solitaire and going into sketchy chatrooms. There simply wasn't another alternative to the massive amounts of things I have in my room that I neglect because of the internet. I just feel so...good and whole and complete and I feel like my emotions got a true work out and my mind is so....at ease...
Maybe...maybe I'll snap a photo of some of my things, my books or music or something, just to put in perspective how I could be spending my time rather than mucking around on tumblr everyday.
UKISS IS MAKING A COMEBACK UKISS IS MAKING A COMEBACK UKISS IS MAKING A KOREAN COMEBACK~!~!~!!!!!!!!~!~!~!~!~!!!!
I know they've been working their butts off in Japan, but I'm so freaking excited for a Korean comeback BUT! BUT BUT BUT I want them to put it off just a little longer. It's scheduled mid April, but maybe May would be better because I can't really think of any big name groups that will still be promoting during that time and if they are, they'll be at the tail end of their promotion cycle. I just.............I WANT UKISS TO WIN SO MUCH it's almost kind of sad but the day they win Kiss Mes will lose their collective minds probably harder than the boys themselves. Also, I'm hoping the momentum from their almost scary good Japanese singles will rub off on their next Korean one because they seriously keep getting better........ugh just.......come back to me~!~!~!
Seriously, looking for a job is one of the most difficult things I've ever done. That and actually creating a resume to get a job. But, the sad life I lead is one that is also expensive if I don't do something other than babysitting to get money. idk... I get why resumes are important, but if I just want some throwaway retail job, I shouldn't have to worry over a resume... I'd much prefer if I could go into somewhere that was hiring, ask them about an interview, do the interview, get the job and profit. Is that that too much to ask for? OTL It doesn't help that I'm picky about where I want to work either... no food service, preferably nothing that deals with whiny/rude/obnoxious/etc customers/management/coworkers etc or that I don't really have any skills... I know microsoft office and I'm a pro at googling and I can fake my way in understanding Spanish and German...that's gotta count for something, right? -__-... sweet baby jesus I am a giant sack of rocks...
