Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo/The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

Okay, this was so unexpectedly DIFFERENT from what I thought it would be! I knew it was about time travel- I mean, who wouldn’t with that kind of title? Speaking of the title, Makoto figuring how to leap through time is just…

[Spoiler Alert! Not really, but the rest of the post is!]

her legit LEAPING all the time. I’m surprised she didn’t get all those bruises she got when she was trying to save Kousuke and Kaho (?) earlier with all the jumping she did.

(ALSO. They sort of never addressed that head on- how she tripped over some guy’s trainer when she was running down that hill. I mean, it’s obvious to infer that “some guy” is probably Chiaki, buuuuut he said he used up his last time travel charge to save them because a certain someone was crying with guilt. But he made her tumble too..? To save her from sacrificing herself?? Though she WAS way too far to do anything like that…I DON’T GET IT AND IT BUGS ME. It’s legit like the only discrepancy I notice with the time travel so far in this movie…)

I sort of found it annoying at first- how the art doesn’t seem to focus on the main characters. They’re all extraordinarily plain, but the backgrounds and different scenery are amaaaazingly detailed. It was unnerving and a little disliked in the beginning, but I kinda grew to like it. It makes the characters seem easier to understand and simpler, though they aren’t really. A bit more…honest almost.

This scene bugged me! I thought Makoto would time travel back and back and back and maybe eventually realize she liked Chiaki, then time travel back to this scene and just damn SAY YES.

But she doesn’t.

Mayyybe Chiaki being from the future had a little something to do with that. Just maybe.

I originally thought Makoto would learn her lesson with time traveling and use up her last time charge to leap back to the day that was super “unlucky” for her- which she edited to suuuuper lucky once she figured out how to control her leaps. You know, live out her life as she was supposed to that first time. With all the mishaps and disasters. Getting up late, not getting any pudding, cooking like me in her cooking class, but walk home instead of ride her bike. But they didn’t do anything like that, and it was evident after the scene where Makoto waited in the  science lab for whoever it was she saw that day.

Now, I thought the movie would interestingly have Yuri walk in like they did and make it seem that the person that shocked Makoto in the first place into time traveling was her from the future. But instead of having her realize that herself when no one showed up in that room, Yuri mentions once Makoto runs off how she did see someone on her way over to that science lab. Surprise, surprise, it was Chiaki.

And there you have it- it becomes blatantly obvious that Chiaki was- is- I don’t even know anymore- from the future.

(….what a bore.)

But it was kinda alright, sorta really emotional, and prettyyyy infuriating with THIS ENDING. And now I don’t know what to expect.

There was no amazing end credit scene in the future or anything. I reaaaally liked a lot of it. It did catch me off guard, got me to care and to cry, and got my interested. But it did annoy me with some aspects like Chiaki being from the future and actually going back once he had his time charge.

(Also, how did he time leap back so that Makoto and he had one last charge left AFTER they both used them up?? AND his device was broken??? MORE DISCREPANCIES AAAH)

AND THEY NEVER EXPLAINED THE PAINTING D:

So many questions. Such few answers. Absolutely no sequels. (Unless this pulls a pixar- since it very well HAS been ten years since it came out….)

Aight, I’ve procrastinated for a good five hours now. I should actually do my english essay now (ewwww).

RandomTip- Dealing with Hairspray

Hairspray would be a girl’s best friend. If it was easy to get out the next day, and NOT make your hair super stiff to the point where you can’t run your fingers through it, let alone brush it….And that is why it’s a frienemy.

But that’s not important right now. Have you ever curled your hair, then sealed it all off with a load of hairspray, or perhaps used it to keep down flyaways, or just to keep it all in place (for loads of dancing, or a fancy evening out, or whateverrr)?

Well, I know I have. Not much, or often, or even at all, if I can help it. It’s just a total pain, and a much worse one trying to wash it out!

But for the annual school play, I wasn’t allowed to follow my own rules, and hence had to put up with stage make up (sooo much more than I actually would ever wear anywhere) and curling my hair (apparently, it was a crime back in the sixteenth century to have had dead straight hair =Y ).

Aaaand they put hair spray in my hair. The next day, I took a shower, and it still didn’t come out! (I didn’t shampoo that day, because I had the day prior, but either way, my hair was all tangled up.)

Sooo I experimented a bit, and found a simple way to get hairspray out of your hair. Just put some oil in your hair, sleep with it in after your night of partying, and just wash your hair in the morning. Your hair will feel so amazingly healthy afterwards, you won’t even realize you had to endure icky hairspray in it for as many hours as you did!

It worked great with me, and even after I put the oil into my hair- oils like olive oil, or coconut oil- I was able to greatly detangle/untangle my hair since it had become super smooth, and greasy, and, well, oily.

Anyways, hope this helps with keeping your hair healthy and yet still being able to do some fancier hair stuff every now and then =)

Buh bye now!

Just a Small Pick-me-up (made me feel awesome)

see, i dont date. i have my reasons. (religious ones too. but the internet is evidently no place for religion so just ignore that anyone…) either way, when i was in a random discussion today with an awesome friend of mine, Kamil, we were being nerds on fb and discussing our amazing note taking skills. When i suggested we discuss something less nerdy, he drastically changed topics (as a joke, i guess) and asked me about how many guys ive dated. (he used another word, but i dont know what it means, but im pretty sure its nothing good. so that goes unsaid. duh.) Being nine-year old me, i was kinda at a loss at how to reply. treat it as a joke, get offended, just respond….especially since he used a verb ive never heard of before.

amyhoo, after questioning him about the unheard of unknown word, he says he meant date (and pats me on the head. grr. i obviously told him off for that.) So i just decide to set the record straight, and just said i dont date. And then he said and i quote ‘Yeah, i know. (which proves that he was joking) *respect*’ and i felt AWESOME and super good about myself. most people usually dont have that reaction, as im sure you can guess.

(he later said something about a one and a half i didnt really get it. i shall simply assume he was a stalker. wow, if anyone besides us two reads that, they will have absolutely NO IDEA what im talking about or how exactly did a number conclude to stalking. oh well. it basically shall be nothing new. i amaze, baffle and astound many, its just what i do.)

yeaaah, i REALLY need to get to sleep now. its 1.34 am for gods sake….

so ‘night =3

Blame the Internet: an Apology, Exams, and a Ban

First, an Apology. im SO SO SOOOO SORRYYYY. i havent exactly been updating this thing for a loooooong tiiime. im sowwy >.<

I have excuses, believe me, i do! its like the universe, life, and everything else (ie, 42) are trying their hardest to stop me…well, first the internet sucks. its biased and mean. a true typical hollywood bully =( and as ive complained about it multiple times previously to this post, i shant do it again. atleast not now. and two, the laptop broke down.  and i absolutely refuse to type on an ipad. it kills your wrists and then you cant draw! and my not being able to draw- weeelll, im not about to let it happen, now or ever!

So how am i typing this out? well, ive kind stoled my dads laptop and am trying it out now. its just IMPOSSIBLE to use for me. first, its waaay too big, and ive somehow alread managed to close this tab twice. and i hope there isnt a third time…

ignoring my constant rants that few of you have probably missed, who am i kidding, ive got no readers =( *sniff*, back to the main point!

i apologise now for my extreme lack of updates. although, i do have an alt. ive complied a documentation, a journal, if you will, of all the going ons of life and shit as i know it to put here once i have the time after my exams. yes, on paper. and as the concept of an actual tangible diary (NOT a diary. a journal.) may be hard/impossible for many people to grasp, its there. and i did write one. a journal. hee hee.

kaaay, so updates about that journal, laterrrrr. summer vacation, wohoo!

soo. EXAMS. due to which my parents have banned me from the internet, the ipad, the laptop, video games (all excluding that ONE pokemon game i just cant find…(platninum)), emails, fb, 9gag, and at some point, my phone. bleh. i myself have banned myself from reading new books so to satisfy my thirst for reading, im rereading old books of mine. like the charlie bone series. i found out NOW, my second time only reading the series, that i havent actually read the ENTIRE series. i mean, sure, i knew i skipped the first book, but i didnt know there was an EIGHTH one!! and now that im done with that, im reading alex rider. again. bleh =P

soooo ive got two weeks til my exams start…and then they end on the 30th of May. cant wait. til the 30th, not the 7th..er, yeaaah.

so up. the apology…oh and an apology in advance since i wont be back here til the 30th! sorryyyyy.

Whats there to look forward to when i do get back, HMMM?! well, im glad you asked!

stuff like my recent dream where i became bros with batman, and the very awkward moment (so awkward that when im next asked in truth or dare, and ive been dared to pick truth, ill have to answer with this) with my childhood bro, ishi, and the science fair fail of the 6th and 7th graders that i attended, the Farewell function/my graduating thing, the drama of the couples in my group of friends, and much much more. i also had a dream where goku and vegeta become knights in shinning armor and asist me in defeating the Bloors of Bloors Academy (from charlie bone. get my references, people, plz!?).

now that you know i have not been holding out on the craziness and insanity and randomness of my actual life, stay tuned!

[uuuuggggh. i just realized im gonna have SOOO muuuuuuch to typpppe ouuuut nooowww…bleeeeh. im laaaazyyyyy alreaddyy just thinking about it..]

Buh-Bye! And wish me luck/pray/whatever that i get GREAT grades =P

laterrrr, y’all!
