A Fantastic Comic Site- SatW

So I’ve been prowling the net for a website which displays cute, and interesting comics that need not be professional, detailed as much as something like the DC ones, or even with much of a plot.

And now, after so so SO long, I have finally come across a site worthy of mentioning, because it’s just SO impressive and perfectly what I was looking for!

I introduce to you, and I do hope you’ll enjoy it, the satwcomic.com ! It’s Scandinavia and the World comics =)

The characters are countries, and they all have stereotypes attached to them- America is blonde and buff, meddling in everyone’s affairs, with very little knowledge on the European countries. Sweden is a typical nerdy character, with his hair slicked to one side, wearing glasses and a collared shirt at all times. Denmark is happy go lucky, has cute floppy hair, and is rarely ever seen without a bottle of beer in his hands. Finland is a mute, menacing man in a ski-hat (the kind that covers your ears?), and always carrying a knife.

The countries wear shirts with their flags on them, and trust me, sometimes even that inspires a short story, like this. It’s hilarious!

The stories are sometimes just random, inspired by real-life occurrences, or even historically enlightening! Myths and the Scandinavian’s perception of other countries is a constant theme in these sketches, and I love it. It’s fun, interesting, and funny.

^This is a panel that cracks me up everyyyy time xD That’s America as a child, and here, England is his father =3 How cute is that? (Canada is America’s brother.) This is what happens when England ignores America when he was showing him all sorts of things as a kid…The tea got what it had coming to it =/

^[I like to think of the two twins near the bottom as the Weasely twins =3]

The drawing style itself catches my eye. Possibly cuz it resembles mine so much. The character’s are,  usually lanky chibis like the power puff girls. Although that’s hardly fair, since this artwork is amazing, not over the top, but the simplicity gives it dignity and it has an admirable effect. It’s fantastic, and I spent all of yesterday stalking that site. I’ve read nearly all the comics that have been posted in the past three years…It’s adorable and I love it ❤

I’d definitely recommend visiting this site every now and then to see what the Nordics are up to =) It’s worth it ^_^

Anyhoo, that’s all that there is towards this tiny post that I should have written yesterday….B-but, I was reaaaally absorbed in reading the comics then >.<

Amature-Bookreader- My Sister and The Fan

My sister amazes even me, which should be pretty difficult by now, since my expectations are the lowest of all (in the family or otherwise). And yet, when she still manages to stoop lower than that, it leaves me speechless, mindnumblingly shocked, and totally mindblown.

This happened to be one of those incidencts.

So my sister just started an adventure that scared even the over-couragous me (becasue if my siter was infact about to set out doing this…then what may become of the world as we know it?). and that adventure was reading. yes, my sister started to READ. even i am shocked.

and yet, that is not todays particular incident of shock, oh no. However, while on the topic of her reading id like to ellaborate a bit.

Still disappointed and depressed over the books she decided to read, im still not sure how i feel about my sister reading terrible books i hate like Vicky Angel by Jacqueline Wilson (a book that manages to be controverisal to almost all world-widely famous religious beliefs about life-after death) instead of something truly epic like my re-reading Harry Potter. i mean, realllyyy? Wilson’s…shtuff over Harry-inspiring-kids-to-look-forward-to-their-eleventh-birthday-for-a-letter-from-hogwarts-Potter?! really?!

ahem. so er…yeah =P to the actual incident of shock now…

The rooms cool, but both the AC and fan are off…so i tell my brother to turn the fan on. Hadia, isntantly starts complaining, saying that itll mess with her book. so i ask her HOW in the world the fans managed to do that. She responds- and here it comes- with how if the fans on, the pages of the book will begin to flip, because theyll get blown away by the fan. Just just- what? So she ellaborates, exasperated, asthough this is something as easily understood as needing food to live. that basically, the fan will blow air towards her book (factually incorrect. the fan does not blow air, it turns, causing already existing air in the room to move.) and thus turns and moves the pages, making it totally IMPOSSIBLE to read. DUH.

um…how about just trying hold the book properlyy?? you know, in such a way that you can actually READ it without worrying about the pages being moved by something normal like having a fan on in the summer…

and then she showed me how she held the book. it was like she was pinching it tentively, like it might try to bite her, or that shes considering how much cooler itd look on the floor…, anyways, basically, if i so much as turned the fan on, the might might have flown out of her hands.

As a porffesional and awesome mega bookreader nerd-mhmm, self bestowed title, course =D- that i am, i couldnt even COVNEY the level of hugeness of the facepalm i wanted to and nearly did attempt having witnessed and HEARD all of this…but out of fear of smushing my head and killing all my brain cells, making it pretty unlikely to get into say Yale or Standford or even THINK, i decided not to. it was a VERY close call at that too.

aaaand she just did another face palm worthy moment just now as i was typing all this out…she asked me if i wrote in the book shes particularly reading right now and not the author cuz the FONT HAD CHANGED when they showed what was written…um, i cant explain it too well, what i mean so ill show you and examples. (cuz like im all about the examples ^_^ )

so then i elegantly scrawled a message across the corner of her page. the message read,
Oi, what do you MEAN by Percy Jacksons not awesome?!
^the above scrawl being in an actual different font…it didnt work here for some reason =Y

SO YEAAAH…it was like that. but it was basically a girl writing a message with frosting on a cake or something. it couldve been ketchup on a hotdog too so…yeah, whatever, she basically thought wrote it…just no…no.

hmm =/

ladies and gentlemen, my sister. wohoo.

keep your facepalms ready.

Ze Out!

Exam Prep/Freak Out/Past Paper Rage

Yeah, yeah, i know, i should be studying right now. and chill out, i AM. im doing physics MCQ past papers on Xtremepapers.com right now. so yeah.

but i am freaked. i mean, ive got the most important exams of my life in 6 days- wait, no its past midnight so technically five days. not like im counting. oh no. my friends do that for me. ‘only ___ days til our exams, like, ohmagooodddd!!’ you are not making the pressure any easier to deal with, oh dearest friends of mine -.-

so anyways, i was supposed to get my past paper booklets yesterday. i ordered them on sat, paid for 75% of them, and even had a witness. buuut, evil photocopier dude, LOST my order, and on top of that, FORGOT to print them out. so i was told to pick them up today. but, boy, did i freak out. i cried and cried, that theres only a week left, and the freakin loser just cost me a day of my prep time! grrr…but i finally got them today, so im feeling a loooot better about my prep, although im still freaking and ill tell you why.

one, im not a genius nor a nerd; im not adil nor a fiza. ive only started preparing for Bio. (theory is right after the atps.) and ive done math past papers sorta at my math tution. but otherwise, i havent studied shit seriously for physics, and i havent as yet TOUCHED chemistry. so im freaking out majorly about chemistry…

And Math. see, i havent practiced math in atleast a yr, since i got sir sohrab as my teacher, and im totally out of practice and my prep is literally less than one fourth the prep i had LAST year when i attended sir farid’s math tution and didnt even GIVE the exam last year…so very veryyy scared about even math. and i used to be better than adil at it too!! >.< aaarrrggghhhh

speaking of genius adil, i talked to his mom the day we were getting our mock results (were childhood friends;ive known him since 3rd grade) and shes going on how shes forcing a genius like adil to study 8 hours a day. lady, im not even studying 3! 3 hours, max, breaks included. im soooo scaaared =(

and and literature. i havent even ever once finished reading the entire wuthering heights. when i went off to the national debating thing, i missed loads of stuff, and havent really read up on what i missed. soo yeaaah. there shall always be apprehensive when it comes to the literarure exam, regardless of your mock grade (i got a 82%! the only one in class who got over 80! ME! and A!! =O) and prep, and grasp of the storyline/plot/ coursework, basically.

and then theres loaaads of nervousness when it comes down to the science subjects too..very much so…i hope i truly pray for atleast an A in physics so i dont have to regive it…

i hope and pray these cursed exams go well. then i can finally look forward to a whole summer vacation of nothingness and  , eventually, boredome. ah, but that boredome is still much more preffered over this evil evil exam time, no? =P

i cant wait for this stuff to end….

and i do promise, as soon as my exams end, ill update my blog. bring it up to speed. ill put all my wacko weirdo dreams up. ill add a bunch more of gahssip junk from the Lyla and co. group. and ill talk more about random shiz again =)

until then, toodles~

haha, toodles =P pathetic…

Later, Homies!

yeaaah, i know the ‘homies’ doesnt make it all that much cooler…=P
