writers block.

I'm supposed to be writing my admission essays right now.
But I don't know what to write.

I really hate those "Who are you?" prompts.
Who am I? I don't know.

stargazing.

There are certain activities that I feel that everyone wants to do, but has never gone around to actually doing them. Examples of these are juggling, origami, and playing an exotic instrument.
Stargazing falls under this category as well.

I personally have always wanted to learn how to do this. When I was little, I read many picture books that glorified staring up at night and seeing the stars. 
But I could never find the right dots of light.

Is that the north star?
No wait, I think it's that one.
No, that one seems more bright.

Many years have passed, and now I've realized that I can use this to impress others and make new friends.

You see, not many people actually know how to stargaze. In fact, none of my friends have a clue which star is which. This is good, because this means that I can pretend to know what I'm doing, and they'll believe me.

The conversation would go something like this:
Me: <points randomly up at the sky> Hey look, there's the Big Dipper!
Friend: The what?
Me: The Big Dipper. It's a constellation. <points at another random spot in the sky> And there's the North Star!
Friend: I don't see them.
Me: <point at the general spot where you said the Big Dipper was> It's right there. See that big cluster of stars? If you connect them... <move your hand like you're doing a connect-the-dots, still in the sky> it'll form a picture! Cool, huh?
Friend: I still don't see it.
Me: <acting frustrated> Right there! <stab your finger at the sky>
Friend: Oh, that's cool! 

Your friend won't ask more than two times about the specific location of the stars if you act frustrated and irritated enough each time you point it out again. 
They'll pretend they see which star you're talking about, so they don't seem ignorant. 

And that my friends, is how you impress people.
But make sure the person you talk to isn't an expert with stargazing. Because if that happens, you're pretty much screwed. <3 Fi

Dear Santa,

why are birthdays celebrated?

You didn't do anything important. You were just born.

One of the many mysteries of today's society... <3 Fi

music spotlight.

dIt has come to my attention that many songs and artists don't get the recognition that they deserve. This is because artists like Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, and Bruno Mars are hogging the spotlight and being overplayed on the radio. (You know it's true.)

So, once in a while I'll post music from a few of my favorite lesser-known artists, in hopes that I'll create some new fans, and to share their lovely music.

The first band is called Parachute, and their latest album was called Losing Sleep.
It's really a beautiful, and it's a great album to listen to if you're stressed, or just need to relax. Some people say their music is a cross between Maroon 5 and John Mayer, but it's a great summer album as well.
My favorite song by them is called Words Meet Heartbeats.





The second band is called Jack's Mannequin, and their latest album is called Everything in Transit.
There's a happy-go-lucky feel to most of the songs, and there's quite a bit of piano in the tracks. Both the melodies and lyrics are amazing, and worth listening to.

I put on the same clothes I wore yesterday.
When did society decide that we had to change
And wash a t-shirt after every individual use:
If it's not dirty, I'm gonna wear it.
(These lyrics are from their song I'm Ready.)






Well there you go. (= So, I hope that you take a look at these two bands, and take a break from all the bad pop that's taken over the radio. <3 Fi

wishing you a happy holiday.

I'd like to take a break from all the food that I've been eating, and wish you all a happy Christmahannukwanzadan (Hope that covers everyone), or for those who aren't celebrating anything, have a nice day at home. (=

My family and I aren't exactly religious, so when Christmas-time rolls around, we pretty much sleep in, have dinner parties, and enjoy the alone time.
... we sound like such losers....

But I love the holiday season.
I love the lights that everyone has on their houses.
I love the candy canes.
I love the smell of christmas trees.
I love the snow.

So, have a nice one! And if you believe in 2012, we have about two years left to live, before the world explodes, so make it a holiday to remember, bahaha.

snow.

IT'S SNOWING!!
asbdvlsdfjdkdnsnowsnowsnowsnow.

Our school was really pumped about it, since it started snowing on the last period of the day.
Everyone was dancing outside after class.
And my friend Alex was running around saying that it was a Christmas miracle.

Of course, there was always that one kid who was all,
I'm Jewish.

But hey. You don't have to be Christian to enjoy the miracle.

I especially love new snow. I love the feeling of stomping all over it, and knowing that the little boot tracks are from me, not from some random moose or something. 
And I love knowing that I was the very first person to experience it.

Here's a song that I listen to that makes me happy. Like new snow. Tee hee. (:






... and I hope swim practice is canceled. <3 Fi

because chain mail can be hilarious.

I found this in my inbox, and I laughed.
It was titled "if facebook existed years ago", sent to me by my friend Emily.
Hope you like them. (=
(Click the image for the original size and clearer viewing.) 


Normally I hate chain mail though. Especially those If-You-Don't-Forward-This-You-Will-Die ones. Ugh. <3 Fi

tetris.

Tetris is probably my favorite thing in the entire world. And I'm not even kidding.
This is the only game I play anymore.
Because Pokemon, Xbox, and Call Of Duty just don't make the cut.

lovelovelovelovelove

When you think about it, it takes SO much talent to play Tetris.
You have to think really quickly and have good reaction time in the higher levels when the blocks start coming down really fast.
You have to be smart, because if you just place blocks randomly, you won't get a good score.
And you have to think ahead, because it shows the block that'll come next, and you need to keep that in mind.

It takes more skill to be good at Tetris, then it takes to be good at mindless shooting games that are currently popular.

And it's really fun. =D
So here's the link, in case you want to play it. Cause you know, it's kinda awesome. 


On a normal day, I fall asleep playing this. <3 Fi

i learn how to play bassoon.

Yeah that's right.
As of yesterday, at 7:15pm, I'm a bassoon player.
But a very bad one at that.

I sound like an elephant farting when I try to blow out a note on this tremendous instrument.
But hey, we all have to start somewhere.

I'll probably add more details about it later.

But I really need to practice. I need to be able to play a few notes before my next lesson. Bahaha. <3 Fi

justin bieber.

Alright guys.
Let's talk.
About Justin Bieber.

When I bring this delicate topic up, about 50% of people I talk to you are like...

OHMYGAWD JUSTIN BIEBER KISS ME ILOVEYOUILOVEYOU HUG ME LOVE ME!!! OMGOMGOMG

They'll go on and on, discussing their undying love for this kid. And they won't stop. 

And then there's those people who are like 

Ew. Justin Bieber. I hate that kid. His music sucks, and he's ugly.

Ok guys. I know this a popular topic of discussion.
On Facebook.
In real life. 

And half of the discussions are always Haters vs Fans based. 

I really don't get the hype about him. He's a good singer, and he's successful at a young age. He can dance well, and he's a pop star.

SO WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL. 

And here's the thing,
I feel like half the people who hate on him, don't actually feel that way. I think that they're just trying to fit in with everyone by hating on Justin Bieber.
That's just me. I know that there are some people out there that really actually truly hate him.

But look at me.
I hate certain bands.
But I don't go around parading my disgust about them.
I don't make hurtful Facebook groups about how I think that the Black Eyed Peas possess absolutely zero talent and how all their music is just all autotuned crap.
I just keep it all inside.

Go make some real music, ok? Cause yours sucks.

And to clear some things up,
Justin Bieber isn't fat.
Justin Bieber is most likely not gay, judging by the fact that he dates girls.
Justin Bieber isn't ugly. 
Justin Bieber has gone through puberty. 
Justin Bieber is not a girl.  
Justin Bieber probably won't be run over by a train in the near future.
Justin Bieber probably wasn't a hobo who lived in a box for the majority of his childhood.

He's just a talented person who's just trying to sing and make some money.
And his songs are decent.

So stop hating unnecessarily. 


Please and thank you. <3 Fi

christmas carols & some.

I wrote a long ranting post expressing my hate for Chrismas carols.
But then I accidentally deleted it all. Oops.

And due to Saturday-afternoon laziness, I won't write it again. Sorry.
To make up for it, here's a goose. 

 

And a unicorn. 

Did I make your day better? Yes I did. Now you're going to be happy because you just love unicorns and geese with a burning passion of ten fiery suns. Deny it, and the unicorn will stab you to death with it's horn. =D 

I'm just grumpy because it's raining outside. I want snow. Ugh. <3 Fi

my awkward little secrets i don't share.

It occurred to me, that I will probably won't meet any of you in real life.
I don't show any of my friends my blog.
So, might as well tell you about all the little, weird things I do. [:

1.) I live in constant fear of burning my tongue. I reduce microwaving times by ten seconds. I let hot chocolate or tea sit for at least five minutes. And above all, I hate eating cookies "fresh out of the oven".

2.) I've wanted to play the tuba since I was in second grade. That wish was unfulfilled. I play the violin.

3.) Those little printed address labels on envelopes that are addressed to me make me feel special. They also make me feel like I'm in trouble with the police.

4.) When I'm really mad, I kick a wall. It's normally not a good solution.

5.) Before picture day, I prepare at least a week in advance. I practice smiling in any mirror, so I don't have that forced-smile look.
... Yes, someone has walked in on me grinning at myself in the mirror. Yes, it was quite awkward.

6.) I still play Neopets. And to those who are prejudiced about it, I bet I've talked to people twice your age there. So ha.

7.)  I have this habit of counting how many weird looks I get. My current record is 48. I don't remember the exact day, but I remember that it was on a Thursday.

8.) I hate Tuesdays. I can't stand them. Every Tuesday is a bad day.

9.) I've never been in a church before. I'm not Christian, so don't make any assumptions of me being the devil or anything. Never stepped foot in a church though. How weird.

10.) I probably knit better than most old grandmas. 

11.) I think that citrus scented body wash should be banned. Same with grapefruit. And lets get rid of those bottles of glitter. They get everywhere and you can't get them off.

12.) There's a box in my basement that has a dead spider in the bottom left corner. I know this because I was looking for crayons inside of the box, and saw it. This was when I was eight. I hate spiders, so I haven't touched that box since. (I found the crayons though.)

13.) I harbor a secret love for Ke$ha. Ask me about it, and I'll deny it.

14.) I shake bottles of soda and seltzer before I open them. I love the thrill of slowly opening and closing the cap so everything doesn't explode.


This list will probably grow over time, as I catch myself doing some more odd things.

Hope that none of you judge me from this. <3 Fi

hobo gloves.

How amazing.
I can't describe how much I worship these things. No joke.
I know it sounds weird.
But I would sell my soul to fingerless gloves.

They keep your fingers warm!
They allow you to keep doing things you want in life! Like writing, texting, or playing the piano!
They come in stylish designs that will make your friends think you're super cool!
They're cheap!

I got a pair this weekend at the Nordstrom Rack. And they were 20% off. And then another 10% off.
Which equals... a lot of savings.
I think they were about ten dollars.
Not quite sure.

But it's the best decision I've ever made. So go buy a pair. Because gloves are stupid because you can't do anything if you have them on.
Except for snowball fights.
Gloves are good for snowball fights. (:

And now a little song to make you happy...


Oh yeah, we got our first snowfall yesterday! It was when I came out of the pool after swim practice. My hair froze into little icicles. <3 Fi

i'm never eating pomegranates again.

Today, the first day of December, I was walking home from school.
And I was feeling pretty good.
So, I decided to treat myself to some pomegranate in the fridge.
Harmless, right?

As I took it out, I realized that aside from drinking a bottle of pomegranate juice, I have NEVER eaten one before. Ever.
But hey, that's ok.

So I wrestled the fruit onto a cutting board and started attacking it with a knife.
Opening it, I started digging out the seeds.
Red juice started flying around the kitchen, but I was intent on getting my share.
... and that was when my mother walked in.

Which was unfortunately a horrible time to make an entrance.
She saw her daughter with a bloody-red substance splattered on her face, hair and clothes, holding a knife, and with a murderous intent in her eyes, hacking at something that was squirting the red liquid everywhere.
I suppose it was quite traumatizing for her.


I'm sure that she will never be the same after that. <3 Fi

Note: Sorry for not updating as much as I used to. >_< Private school admissions are eating up my life. I'll start being more active after the deadlines. (:
