My Adventure on Foreign Soil!

I’m making it sound more epic than it actually is. Hey, embassies are considered the soil of the country they belong to, so I’m technically correct. Geez, it needs a touch of dramatic flare, is all.

It was QUICK. They newly introduced an actual appointment system, with ticket numbers like at a fast food place, and it’s so much more efficient and less messy than before. Five years ago, it was on a first come first served basis, and it sucked. I’d have to miss school and stay at the embassy for around six hours just for a ten minute interview, and a few signatures.

We were out of there in an HOUR. And it only took us that long too because the cashier wasn’t in at the time, so we had to wait a bit. Plus, other people were still showing up. I love hour our stereotypical Desi un-punctuality is even influencing an embassy of a foreign nation ❤ It brings a tear to my “dual” national eye :’)

While the first dude was checking out our application for my passport renewal, he was fiddling with the date stamp, and after a while finally stamped 28 July 2014 onto the form. It’s June, bro. My dad politely asked why he’d stamped July, and then realizing his error, fixed it. He also forgot which ink to sign at the bottom of the form in, so it was fixed up professionally with half a black signature that had been finished and rewritten in red ink. Poor guy must’ve been reaaally sleepy, really off his game, or just plain ol’ clumsy. Who knows.

The second dude that conducted my interview (they didn’t have me take a proper oath, but I still had to promise that I hadn’t lied on the forms, with my right hand raised. I hope that’s the closest I ever get to a proper oath too 😛 ) was a gora guy, and he was pretty great at what he was doing with the questions, and answering those my dad asked too.

There was also a stop between these two guys, which was stopping and paying the cashier the fees for the new passport.

We were waiting for the cashier to open shop, and this other family, that came AFTER we did, just stood huddled in front of the station, like they belonged there! I was pretty miffed at their hurry, and their rudeness, especially since they were counting out which ticket holder had to go up to which window. It was hence pretty satisfying when they were asked to move, and our ticket number was called. That aunty’s smug, haughty look was wiped clean of her face then as she shuffled back to take a seat and wait her turn like everyone else. Hah. Justice. #TheTripleA

That’s about it for that. I didn’t get much sleep last night though…even though I went to bed at around 1 am, I didn’t fall asleep until four. And so I’m running on two hours of sleep, and basically sugar and sunlight~

It was fun. We went to Second Cup afterwards, grabbed a bit of coffee, and some other tidbits (double chocolate muffin, a slice of apple pie, a chicken wrap). Ammi of course wasn’t very fond of her coffee. She’d ordered a medium/regular size too! I got a Cuzco, which is this nutty(aw yeah) chocolate-ish (barely) Latin American blend of coffee, apparently. Adding foam milk just made it all the more better ❤ (Ammi used up half the brown sugars we’d been served, so I only got to use two packets 😦 )

Aaaand now I’m home, typing this out, while I load up a Rizzoli & Isles episode ^_^

Hee hee, well, I’m off now 😛

I’ll type out more about Ayesha’s birthday later today, I hope~

Plan for Tomorrow- Ayesha’s Birthday & My Passport Interview

Sooo I’ve got two major things tomorrow. My interview at the embassy to renew my passport, and get my first “adult” one made that’ll last me ten years. (No pressure for the photo, or the signature. Not one but. Nuooope.)

More on that just now, but I also need to state- for the record~- that it is also Ayesha’s sweet seventeen Sassy Seventeen birthday bash. Much less of a bash, more of a crash. Seeing as we all invited ourselves to crash at her place. It’s going to be a casual affair (as casual as Ayesha can get), so we’ll just be playing a bunch of board games. I for one am super pumped and looking forward to this! I LOVE board games, and we’re even playing a  bunch of my faves- Cluedo, Pictionary, Taboo, “Foreheads” (the Lazy DIY version of Headbands, which is a charade like game.), and Credit Card Monopoly (never played that one before, so yeah!). Yay ❤

Ahem. Passport complaining time~

Er, maybe not now… I should be asleep. Gotta get up early tomorrow.

Um, there was the family album, basically proving I’m my parent’s daughter, showing my aging, school ID cards, etc, etc.

And I’ll fill it all out laterrrs, as Imma hit the hay now.
[#HayAbuse #BadPun, woot woot.]

So ciao~

Watch Delemna- Preferences with Metals

Ever since my dearest dear Sparkly Bracelet Swatch, I’ve never had a fixed daily worn watch (semi including Ammi’s red metal Swatch hand me down that lasted me two years).

It was this gorgeous silver and sparkly watch that looked like a bracelet. It had those clear beads that were practically prisms with how many teeny tiny rainbows they broke all the light that passed through them into.

LOL. It’s name’s apparently First Romance

I loved it! And wore it for a good three or four years before the bracletty strap finally broke and the beads went flying everywhere. (Still had it repaired and wore it for another three to four months before the OTHER side broke D: ) Anyhoo, it was retired and it took me forever to finally pick out another swatch to replace it with.

It had to be neutral. It had to be silver ish. It had to be- fancy fabulous.

Now that I look back on it- I NEVER picked out a swatch- no, wait, I did.

Silver. Pinkish. A bit of detailing, but not nearly as ostentatious as the first one. But neutral for me. Too tiny for my taste now, but I apparently liked the thought of a dainty watch back then.

I can’t find an actual picture of it, but it looked a BIT like this. Less pink.

It had the same inner dial thingie!

I was even considering this one, but it was too similar to my old one.

Menthol Mintie

Anyhoo, that’s it for my old swatch indecisiveness. Here’s my take on metal preferences now~

Sooo the deal with me and which colored metals I wore.

It’s basically silver versus gold, even thought there are so many other metallic colors now.

Back then, it was always silver. Silver rings, watch, earrings, all that. It had to be silver if it was concerning jewelry. I viewed gold as an “aunty” color for the longest of times. I couldn’t wear golden watches one BIT. Nor was I particularly fond of any other jewelry being gold either.

But now, years later, as I’m older, and matured just a tad, gold is the fabulous metal, and I love it. Yo, mah bling is gold man. #BlingBling

Although my sudden acceptance of gold is great and all, my current preference, especially concerning watches, would be rose gold. That pinkish golden color.

It’s gorgeous! And now I want, and am sorta already picking out a rose gold watch 🙂

There’s this one from Claire’s that Ayesha got at Budapest after I pushed her to.

Such bling and bedazzledness.

She wasn’t so sure about it, and I was originally going to buy it, but the curse with me and Claire’s on that trip was that every time I visited that store, I had already dropped most of that day’s money shopping! So I didn’t have enough to buy it then -____-

So I pushed Ayesha to get it, and she did. Now I’m considering getting it too.

But there’s this one I like a bit better at the moment, thought originally I was equally indecisive as which to get.

Still bling, pink, and GREY.

 

I like the random grey stripe through the strap, and the dial’s design intrigues me more than the other classical dudesy dial thing. Especially since none of those three tiny dial things even WORK >.> I don’t like the idea  of those fake ones being on it if they haven’t any functionality.

Plus, with the grey, if I do decide to wear  silver with this it’ll go better than having all silver jewelry and a completely rose gold chunky watch on.

I’m not sure yet. And who knows if I’m even getting these? I’d have to get them shipped from the UK, and I’m not sure if I’m up to pay the additional delivery charges =P

Meeeeh, so that’s it for now. Gotta pooof~!

Ze Week of Anime Endings

=(

Just about EVERY Spring anime I started is ending this week! Why must they have tiny 12 episodes only?! Gah D: (Only exceptions are Haikyu and Mahouka. *sniff*)

Akuma no Riddle already ended on Friday, and I hated it’s ending. They didn’t do anything cool at all. Plus, they held out on two pieces of information that just drove me up the wall =Y One, you know how Azuma’s mentor bunda just keeps texting her riddles? The last one was “The world is full of/filled of ____.” She replied. They show us his reaction when he read the text- he smiled, and laughed. But they didn’t show us her answer!! Grrr…That’s literally what they named the episodes after- those riddles! And they didn’t give them anyyy importance after that -.- Stupid. Then, two, there was how they didn’t tell us Azuma’s  wish, or even if she had cashed it in! What bothers me is that they could have done two things with this- the first being that they didn’t draw a conclusion, as Azuma didn’t demand to disband this test thingie, and a whole other Black Class scenario could happen just in a few months with other people. This seems like they did a terrible job of tying up the loose ends, and failing to notice their own storyline. YET, secondly, it’s possible that they put that loophole on purpose so they could eventually show us another Black Class scenario with new characters. Basically, pull a Beyblade *-* Dx

Black Bullet ends today…
I Enju better not die >.> <.<
II Grass Haired Kisara should not get a romantic moment with Rentarou(, and neither should Curly Haired Yukata chick).
III They better have an epic end finale with the Masked Dude and his daughter.

No Game No Life ends tomorroooow ❤ Whyyyyyy D: That’s the WORST show to be ending at 12 episodes… slkdjfaso;irjfghjsaoei!!! Maaaan, I mean, there was no waaaayy they could have (spoiler!) defeated the Eastern Federation, and all other races to have gathered all race pieces AS well as challenge Tet and WIN. They’re making a second season, of course, but it comes out in like 2016 D: I don’t want to waaaait that loooong~

At least there’s a manga…

So I just watched the twelvth and apparently SECOND last, not last, episode of Black Bullet. I actually liked it. It’s interesting where they’re taking the story. Even though I hated how easily Rentarou and Masked Guy defeated the Pleidaeiay (Mercury Shooting Gastrea). A punch from them EACH, and bam, it’s dead. Pfft. Plus, I’m so glaaad that Masked Guy is baaack~! I knew he didn’t die. He’s also in the theme song, as well as the only villain in the show. They couldn’t kill him so simply. He also has a very interesting and dark past. But of course. So yay ❤ Alya totally called his revival into the show though xD

Aaaand now I just started Durarara! =) Ooops, I better get to bed now! I’ve gotta get up for sushi tomorrow :3

Janeh~! (See ya later)

What Am I Doing with my Life- Er, I mean Summer Vacation?

Yeah, that.

Within three days of my Summer vacation, I was already at a loss for what to do with my new found ample amounts of free time. I just had no idea what to do. All the super productive things I put off until after the exams were far too tedious, and all the tv shows I planned on watching and starting just didn’t seem all that interesting anymore.

Soo what HAVE I been occupying myself with, hmm? Chronologically, it went something like this…

I I watched all the recent updates on the anime I’m following, but y’all have heard enough about my anime addictions recently, eh? 😉

In no particular order: No Game No Life, Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, Akuma no Riddle, Ishuukan Friends/One Week Friends, Brynhildr in Darkness (don’t know the proper Japanese name >.< Le Alien One, as I call it with Alya 😛 ), Dragonar Academy, Haikuu!, and possibly others I’ve accidentally left out…

II Getting super hooked on one TV show- Once Upon a Time.

And I do mean “hooked”. Like hooked on rereading all of the Artemis Fowl books or the Harry Potter ones in one go, with not a single day without reading at least half a book. Yeah, that kind of obsession xD So I binge watched the first season in three days. And while doing so, put all me anime on pause, until I got a bit exhausted of watching episode after episode. So, when I started season 2 of it, I watched my anime along side it. And now, reaching ep 15, I’m a little not in the mood to watch it anymore, and have moved on.

But moved on to what?

III Back to anime! But it’s not like I’m watching seven anime at  a time, naw, I decided to start another NEW ONE. Mekakucity Actors!

And it’s pretty cool. I’m surprised. It’s a let down in the way Deathnote was; there was so much hype for it, and because of it’s excessive praise, I expected too much from it, and was disappointed. Just a tad though. I was told it was complicated, which it sort of is, but everything ties together PERFECTLY and comes full circle, so I don’t find it all that hard to follow. It also isn’t nearly as confusing as people make it out to be! Not one bit. That’s where most of the disappointment lies. So far. Yeah, it’s also an ongoing anime, and I’ve just seen the first ten episodes so faaar. For now. Let’s see how this show goes :3

(It’s a sci-fi, partially mystery, partially thriller?, kids with super powers, teen pop culture like Japanese anime show thing. I made it sound so terrible…Go check out a proper summary here, so I don’t feel like I just ruined any chances of you watching it just cuz of me…)

IV Well…I have yet to find out! I’ve moved on from tv shows, and I’m not in much of an anime mood, but I am starting to watch a bunch of movies from the eighties on Ayesha’s recommendations.

On the list, so far in this order, are: The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty in Pink, and then a few more recentish films, like this one Kamil told me to check out called Keeping the Faith. It has Tom Daley from Night At the Museum in it :O Must watch!

V How could I forget this- MAH COSPLAAAAY!

I’m cosplaying as properly ish as I can without chopping my hair (as wigs are impossible to find in the right color here…) to yet just my second anime con! This one I do plan on going properly with my friends, and we are planning a proper group cosplay. Alya, Mnaz, Nahal, and I have put an insaaane amount of effort into our cosplays so far. It deserves it’s own post. With pictures, and everything ❤ And I’ll give it one too. I can’t wait for the actual con though! Just two days to go~ I hope it goes perfectly~

(I just bought my Liz and Patti guns today, with the spray paint and painter’s tape required to create the true Weapons look of those two sisters. I paint them tomorrow 🙂 And yuuup, our group cosplay is of Soul Eater, and I’m Death the Kidd!! #Symmetry )

(No, I am not going as Blackstar, soldgisdlkfjgdoirj!!)

[VI? While all of this is going on, I got back to Freaksworld, only to find that it’s just as empty as before, EXCEPT Freak’s back on the site, and he just made a new hang out- a Kingdom of Freak’s. It’s got all new people in it, and I’m the only oldie original freak there, plus Freak of course. (Pfft, the dude made a new account and wants to be called King now. Like I’ll ever call him that x3 ) I have also made an alt account! :O It’s just cuz I joined a Clan- the Fukushima one that Maya/Lizzie/Tidal started up a while back. She’s asked me to join all her clans every now and then, but I’ve always turned her down. This is the first time I actually considered it, and decided to try something new. I actually like it so far! I have the approval of Natsu for being Frostie, and I has a twinneh called Green~ I also found Am (Amnesia *buncha numbers*) from Freaksworld too! It’s pretty cool, even though the chat is dead recently cuz Tidal ain’t forcing people to join in as she’s stuck at her dad’s- The House of Terrible Internet. Plus there’s talking to new friends like SnowyEvil too. ]

Aaaand the Sun is rising now >.> I better go now!

Imma start watching the Breakfast Club now maybe? :3

ReviewRamble- HIMYM Finale

So How I met your Mother just ended. And wow. Just, whoah. I knew a few things were going to happen, and a few that didn’t, but all in all, there were a lot of feels in that episode.

But another reason why this is a big deal for me is that HIMYM is my replacement Friends. I know, Friends is the original hit series that himym was based off of, and all that, trust me, I do, but I haven’t seen Friends so…

“What?! You haven’t seen FRIENDS?! What is WRONG with you?!!”

*I haven’t seen Friends YET.

I have a promise I made with BK that I wouldn’t watch Friends til I was 21. I’d enjoy it more in my twenties according to her, and by Zaid’s logic, it totally makes sense, since I won’t get most of the jokes anyways.

So when I heard that HIMYM is a show created to be similar to Friends, and is targeting the same audience, with the same emphasis on comedy, I was thrilled to watch it.

 

And I loved the idea of the story! Not just the fact that a father is telling the tale of how he met the mother of his children to his children, but how the story is told to us, the audience, with the time shifts, the stories, the amazing future, past and present changes.

And when I googled himym, I found out that Bob Saget? is the voice of Future Narrator Ted! That’s Danny from Full House! WOW. I had no clue.

Although I can never see the scene where Future Ted is talking to the kids the same way again…I now imagine Danny talking to them instead! And the weirdest bit? He doesn’t even sound like Danny! He sounds like TED! It’s so confusing, and I can’t really wrap my head around it.

Spoiler Alert

I hated how Barney and Robin got a divorce, especially after their utterly brilliant and beautiful wedding. The struggles they each went through to actually get married, and all the character development, nearly all gone, and out the window in that one scene where they tell everyone that they got a divorce. And the true sadness of it all, and harsh reality of hopelessness when Barney actually replies to Lily’s confrontation of him reverting to his pre-fallen in love ways with how if he couldn’t make marriage work with an amazing soul mate like Robin, he didn’t see it happening with anyone else either, ever.

I hated how they broke those two up, after everything that happened between them in this last season. I mean, Barney’s freaking wedding vows!! The most romantic thing I can say happened in this show! Yes, more so than the Blue French Horn, there I said it!

Buuut despite all that, I still LOVED the last scene. It was too perfect. It brought the entire show full circle. It was like an entire reinactment of season 1. Not the entire season 1, but the scene where Ted went to Robin’s and.well, you know what I mean. Either way, it was just the same. And the best bit was the acting. How not even a single word had to be uttered to understand exactly what was going on at that moment. It was a second, one second, and Robin got what was going on. And Ted knew what he was doing. They didn’t ruin it with an “it’s about time” from Robin, and a romantic kiss. They just had Robin see Ted with the Blue French Horn, and it was enough. That’s what I loved.

Yet there’s still the super cliched, super expected terrible ending of having the death of the mother, Tracy! I really didn’t like that. They could’ve done so much if she was alive. I mean, Barney and Robin could have had their happily ever after, and Marshal and Lily have nearly always had theirs, and Ted could have proved it. Proved that even though he loved Robin, he was over her, and he fell in love with someone else, so much more. And he could have had his happily ever after with Tracy. But nooo, they killed her off, they had Robin and Ted get together. I didn’t like that one bit. Because in the end, it implies that Ted never did get over Robin. And here, if he’s the nice enough guy to steal her blue french horns, and get a blue orchestra, and so much more, he got together with her against all odds.

^and I typed all of that out on the 2nd of April, 2014 at 11:24 am. I never completed it, and I’m just gonna post whateverrrr I have written up until now, complete or not, making sense or not, cliffhanger or not, bleh. I really should post my things instead of leaving incomplete drafts for months now…

Stupid me -.-”

A Guilt Ridden Troublesome Two

Soooo

I just forgot my own blahg’s anniversary :O I feel so ashaaamed =(

IN MY DEFENSE, it was on the day of one of my CIEs so there. Hmph.

(June 10th- I’ve missed yet another anniversary. I think I’m starting to see a tradition here… >.> <.< )

The worst part is I REMEMBER the day. I just forget to actually POST something on that exact day…

Man, I’m lazy.

I have been distracted with just oh so much too…

(Uni applications, requesting teachers to write recommendation letters, always anime of course, sleeping, and throwing myself into mah cosplay for the last animecon with my friends in this country =( (and first).)

Hmm…worst anniversary post everrrr. I’ve only complained! I haven’t even thanked any of my readers for putting up with me ._.

MEH, I’ll do a proper thingie later. Yeah, procrastination! And I reaaaaally have very many dreams to fill you guys in on. As well as current obsessions (uni, skype, chatting ( I joined a CLAN :O no, it is not a cult .-. ), Once Upon a Time, certain anime I’ve already gushed about oh so much, as well as my COSPLAY. Aaaahrgh. #dyingOfExcitement. #BeeLive.)

Sooo. Here’s a funny article that just made my day. HARRY POTTER, man, go check it out!

Harry Potter and the thinking Train of freaking Tumblr. This is going to be a hella fun.

What a depressing, and disfunctional anniversary thingie xD

But this is a must- I love anyone who bothers to read the shiz I post here~! For now, forever, and for always. Yeah, I know “for always” makes no sense. It is nearly THREE AM. Deal with it. LA LA LA.

No, seriously, if you are reading this, you get  a pat on the back, and a gold star sticker of love, adoration, and approval from me ❤ Go you! I want to tell you you are perfect in so many beautiful ways, but if you’re reading this and enjoying this sort of stuff, then I’m sorry to say that may not be the reality of the situation. Run away before it is too late. Saaave yourseeeeelf.

Ahem.

Happy IInd Anniversaryyyy, my Blahg~! 😀

Love and stickers from all of us here, and now for my signature sign off:
