 This is kind of late, but about a week ago, Sanrio came to Herald Square for their Pop-Up tour. This was to promote the 50th anniversary of Sanrio.♥  I went after school with orangeincest . I bought a lot of items, including cube plushes.♥

It's nice to be posting again.♥
I've been obsessed with Utada Hikaru's new single ,"Goodbye Happiness". If you haven't heard it yet, it's on Hikki's YouTube channel.♥ I'm telling you, it's AHMAZING.♥

I need to get back to some fangirling. I'll try to post more often! ;)

 Today was a good day. On my way to the bus stop, my friends and I stopped by Carmen Rosa's Bakery. It's a really nice Dominican bakery. [I love their cupcakes!] They were promoting the new Top Chef Just Desserts show. You have no idea how excited I was! I said I would attend the event on fb, but I didn't think I'd be able to go. The site I went to mentioned some places near me, but it's kind of out of my way. Plus, the nicer ones are in Manhattan. BUT LET ME TELL YOU, CARMEN ROSA'S RED VELVET CUPCAKES ARE AMAZING. Sadly, they only make those if you order them. [Maybe I'll order a few tomorrow. XD]

overtures06 took some pictures of me and my friends. I'll put a few up when she uploads them to fb.♥

 I realized that I haven't posted in a long time! Don't get me wrong, I have been on lj a lot, but I haven't updated. I have had moments where I wanted to blog, but was unable to because of punishment.

This past July, I've taken an SAT class in the city. I've also been buying more manga recently. I'm currently obsessed with わたしのすきなひと. CLAMP IS AMAZING.♥

Today, I watched Dinner for Schmucks with my sister. Definitely a good movie. After, we went to Wal-mart [I hate that place! D<]. Then, we headed out to the city because my sister needed to look for a dress for her friend's wedding. We happened to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt filming for a new movie called Premium Rush!♥ ;)

My sweet sixteen is two weeks away! This week and next week will be crammed for me, though! I have mandatory practices because my choir will perform at Carnegie Hall!♥ We're last in the program! I'm so frenetic!

My internet's acting up on me, but it's fine for my sister's account. I suspect it's because I downloaded two programs to convert some videos for a health project. Therefore, I might not post as much. I'll still be on lj most of the time.

Recently, I've been making some Nino and Sho icons in my spare time. It's been fun! During Easter vacation [when I finish the projects and the essay that I got D:], I'll probably make a animated Sho icon.

From yesterday until this Saturday is referred to as the Holy Triduum. That means I'll be going to Church more often. On Holy Thursday, I went to Mass, where we celebrated the Last Supper. Today, I went to the Journey of the Cross. It is an outdoor procession that marks the Fourteen Stations of the Cross. The parishioners would leave the parish and follow the priest. He would lead us to fourteen different homes representing the Fourteen Stations of the Cross. Tonight, I will be going to the Stations of the Cross Mass, which marks Jesus's last journey from Pilate's Palace to his entombment at the Holy Sepulcher. On Holy Saturday, my family and I will attend the Easter Vigil. Then, on Easter Sunday, we'll go to the 10 A.M. Mass. We'll probably go to a relative's house after. My relatives usually invite people the day before. D:

In other news, have you seen the Tokujo Kabachi scans?!♥

Just kidding! Actually, Visual Thesaurus is a pretty cool site. Obviously, when most people are crafting reports, articles, and the like, they rely on online dictionaries and thesaurus, such as dictionary.comand thesaurus.com. To be honest, once you try Visual Thesaurus, you'll want to keep on using it!

I tried it this morning during my Journalism class. At the computer lab in my school library, Benjamin Zimmer, the creator of Visual Thesaurus, gave a demonstration of his website. He gave us postcard-size advertisements of the site. On one side had a huge label with a sentence from a somewhat recent New York Times article. In that sentence, a word or two were underlined. My class was then told to search for a better word on Visual Thesaurus using the underlined word(s). Then, some people told Mr. Zimmer of their findings. I don't feel like getting into that, though! XD;

Then, Mr. Zimmer showed us a powerpoint of why we shouldn't abuse thesauruses. He showed us a quote of someone who admittedly abused the thesaurus in his younger days. Mr. Zimmer tried to see if anyone could figure out who said the quote. One guy in my class thought it was George W. Bush. Guess what? He was right! Stupid!

Near the end of my Journalism class, Mr. Zimmer told us that his wife graduated from my school in 1988! He also said that she is Filipino! That's pretty cool, but honestly, I can't picture a Jewish Filipino. But then again, I wanted to be one a year ago! XD

I think someone should get me a subscription to Visual Thesaurus. The promo that I got from Mr. Zimmer runs out on January 23rd!

Yes, it's that time of year again. The day when people all across America stuff themselves♥ I am currently at my house waiting for my relatives to come.

I actually auditioned for JYPE. It was really bad. A lot of people were giving me looks because I looked Japanese. And the staff were harsh; I'm not even talking about the people that were judging the auditionees! My friend wants me to audition for SM tomorrow. We'll see~

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm going to crawl away for now XD;

If you had to give up one indulgence for 40 days, what would it be?
Ahhh, Lent. D; I might actually give up my iPod this Lenten season. Or I might just try to improve in my life, since that's a valid alternative~

It's so amusing to watch egl_comm_sales ~ All the candidates for the available mod positions are enforcing the new rules, but the fact that they've quickly warned posts before the other candidates makes me giggle XD
Can't wait until the poll~
