The Confirmation Email of the Century

My current phone has completely passed on, so I decided to get a new one and this time, I can’t think of a siiiingle decent android I’m interested in getting, so I’m just gonna take a risk and try out an iphone. Let’s see how this goes.

Anyways, Abu and I drove out to the store yesterday and they only had the SE in rosegold which is basically a metallic pink to apple and I didn’t want that. We thus had to order the color I did want and when they did that for me at the store, they just said I’d have to confirm through email and then the phone would get shipped to me.

Unsuspecting, I come home, only to find a confirmation email….completely in Spanish. Uhhhh. And I am clearly not versed in that language.

So I then had to call customer care to try and get someone to resend me the email in English or at least tell me the details of my order. Talking to four people later combined with the efforts of google translate, I managed to figure out the details of my order and could actually confirm it. Phew.

But dang, was that a what the hell moment. Why Spanish I don’t understand….

So now my new phone should show up sometime in the coming week. Can’t wait to have a working phone again! ^_^

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)

A Quest at the Mall

This all happened yesterday, but I was too sleepy to type this entire story out.

My mom needed to buy my cousin a birthday present, so I tagged along. That’s literally how this story starts. I was just bored at home, and felt like going outside. (I know, how crazy of me, right?)

This turned into a quest very quickly, as soon as we climbed onto the escalators. See, my mom got onto it, but these two aunties managed to get between us, and so I was behind them. So it’s my mom, then them- a granny, a mother, and a little kid- and then finally me.

The kid is like on drugs or something- he was insanely hyper!- and had obviously just had over a spoonful of sugar, and was jitterbugging around, jumping up and down, constantly in motion. Then, he falls, drags Mama down with them, down a few steps to where I was standing, and dammit, I got stabbed in the ankle by that evil auntie’s heel!! I got stabbed in the ankle by an auntie’s heels!! I was also pushed, cuz damn she had some momentum going for her, and nearly slipped down the escalator (it was going up.) but since I’d gripped the railing thingie just in time, I was safe. After we got off the escalator, I gave them at least a 7 meter radius, and walked around them to my mom. That auntie was evil =/

No joke, after the kid did all that, I was expecting at least an ‘I’m sorry”, SOME form of an apology, but no, she just scolded him playfully, with the most lyrical fake voice ever, to make it sound like she was the best mother ever, scolding her kid for misbehaving, right in public, cheers to her for being so reasonably disciplined, and all that. I mean, you could HEAR the smugness in her voice, like she was thrilled to be in the spotlight- her time to shine. Bleh, desperate for attention. Another thing- who goes, just for the heck of it, shopping in heels? If your out with friends, or it’s a date, and you want to look nice for and to impress the people you are going with fine, but if you’re going with your son that’s barely capable of putting one foot in front of the other- wait, that more aptly describes his clumsiness, not his age…since he wasn’t that young. Son that’s around six or seven? and your mother, who obviously doesn’t care about what color she’s wearing so long as it’s all warm? Are the heels really necessary then?

And then, on our way up to this store Breakout, I noticed for the first time ever who was at the mall. Usually, I just notice if there are a lot of people or not. I don’t bother to specify and notice- hey, there are loads of old people today, or something of that sort. But today I did, and there were waaayy too many kids for comfort.

And in Breakout, bam!, it’s full of little kids! It was terrible, I was trying reaaally hard to avoid them.

Oh, and don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate kids. Well, I don’t particularly like them either…I guess it’s like people, if I like them I do, but that doesn’t mean I like all those of that age group…something like that? It depends which kid, and I’ll give you an opinion. I might love one, hate another, and just find the other three boring. But otherwise, I don’t dislike all kids in general. Kind of neutral about it? But I do have a general they-should-get-lost-ew-why-are-they-here?! attitude towards most kids HERE. That’s cuz parents let them do whatever the SHIT they want to do. And this story will explain what I mean. Since I don’t just mean that the parents will toss them their iPhones and give them their own by the age of five, I mean- well, you’ll get it soon enough.

So I’m standing towards a corner of the store featuring the guys’ stuff, cuz I was helping my mom pick something out for my brother. We finally decided on this hoodie that was stripped. But we were arguing on the color. They had this blue an green stripped one, and a navy blue and yellow one. I found the yellow one cooler, and I think my Que has waaayy too much blue and green in his wardrobe as it is. But, as we stand there debating it out, there’s this mannequin right next to me. And this little girl trying to climb it. Yes, she was in fact trying to CLIMB it. And her dad’s like right there, and he doesn’t even bat an eye, until she along with the mannequin come tuuumbling down, and she just wriggles away, jumping towards the next closest mannequin, and tries to get to the top of that one. The mannequin, explodes into an assortment of limbs on impact with the ground, right next to where I’m standing, and I narrowly avoid being impaled with a pink plastic arm.

See? Forget parenting, there’s no CONTROL over these kids here, and by the time they get to something like five, they will be untamable BEASTS. Fear them, and run. That’s the best advise I can give. When forced in their company, be wary, very very wary. But don’t flinch or show any indication of anything other than happiness and rainbows- they smell fear!

And that was my adventure at the mall. Them kids were out to get me O.o

The Great Gatsby- Gatsby’s Green Light

I was thinking about The Great Gatsby…both the book and the movie (although I haven’t read the entire book yet. Still stalled on Chapter VII =P =/ ) when I started to try and literary analyze the green light.

I thought- if I’m going to literary analyze anything, might as well record the thought. Maybe I’ll laugh at it later, for being so off or for thinking something so naive (perhaps that would be possible if the future-me was ever mature. Hah. Now that IS a laugh.). Maybe I’ll nail it on the head. Maybe I’ll just do it for fun. Maybe all three.

At first, I just thought it to represent something like the unattainable, or the desires that are just out of reach. But then, the scene from the movie came in, the MOTION of the green light and this thought just struck me-

It’s like a Lighthouse. It’s necessary. It guides you home, it’s a beacon of hope, it lights the way in darkness, its light is so appealing and beautiful compared to the bleak, pressing darkness, and on top of it all- If you get too close too it, it’ll harm you, rather than help you. You can’t sail your boat too close to it, or your boat will crash and sink.

And all that, all that, is what Daisy is to Gatsby.

We need to go deeper!

I had to, I just did =P I couldn’t possibly resist xD …

ahem. So anyways, I could go deeper to take the light to represent Daisy’s house, not her. But that would also end up involving Tom, and the estate, and it’s location, in comparison to Gatsby’s. Meh, no, that’s TOO deep, and confusing, and not worth getting into. Imma leave it at my initial idea.

I wonder if that made any sense at all… Or if my opinion was totally off ^_^ I wanna ask my seniors who analyzed this book in Literature now, to see where my idea stands to the opinion of Khilji/KillJoy, the Scholar of Literature, and the Great-Grandmother of the Furies.

Literature IS all that. Lyrical Literature keeps you lively and dainty.

#EmphasisthroughAlliteration. Mhmm. It’s a thing. xD

Zero no Tsukaima~

Ze Familiar of Zero!

zeronotsukaima_01

One of my faaavourite anime that I started when I was in eighth grade ^_^

zero-no-tsukaima

[I started watching anime a lot when I was in eighth grade- that’s when I got hooked onto it! And that is also the year in which I saw the most anime I had ever seen =) ]

Okaay, so Zero no Tsukaima is a wonderous fantasy anime with just the right amount of comedic romance to easily fall into my ‘Must watch’ anime lists =3

Zero_no_Tsukaima_3

 

^See what I mean by comedy? Well, I didn’t know these terms before when I watched it the first time, but Louise (ze young tiny pink haired lass) is a tsundere (did I spell is right?? I think so..) which would be Japenese/Otaku talk? for a character that rarely expresses their love or like for anything, always get embarrassed when it’s brought up, and contradict themselves about it- that is, deny they like/love that thing/person. So if Louise is a tsundere, and falls for Saito (cuute coolio Japenese guy in a blue hoodie), then she’s going to blush furiously all the time, stutter, get embarrassed, and deny everrr liking him, and say she hates him. But she doesn’t =)

I mean, lookie, isn’t Hiraga

 

 

Saito cuute?! He is one of my favourite characters, so bear with all these pictures of him now ^_^

^This last one’s a deviant art picture, fan art, by a fedyfaust, I think. Cheers to him/her for making it! =)

Louise also has one of the damn coolest names possible. She easily wins Ze Coolest Full Name fictional Character Award from me, at least. Her full name is- wait for it while I google it, yes it IS in fact that long- Louise Françoise de la Baume le Blanc de la Vallière~! Mhmm, best name ever, am I right? xD

Ok, now this anime is the story of how Louise, bullied and cruelly nicknamed ‘Zero Louise’ by her classmates since her success rate with all spells and anything associated with magic has been, well, zero, gets fed up with all the teasing and decided that for her Second Year at school for mages exam, is going to summon the most beautiful, most graceful, and strongest familiar ever. And that’s where the name comes in, cuz she summons- The Familliar of Zero!

Now, utterly and completely humiliated since she summoned a mere human instead of something spectacular like a dragon, or a griffin, or a Charmeleon on Steroids (I kid you not, there is in fact one.) she summons something with even less magical potential than hers- a human, which has none!

kkkkk

 

^Man, Kirche should’ve hit the B button while she still could…wait, I’m actually veryyyy glad she didn’t. I mean, how many of use really want to see a Charmander on steroids? O.o

But Louise still completes the ceremony to make a binding contract with her new familiar. Here’s  a snapshot of that. Cuz if it’s any sort of magical ceremony- there’s GOTTA be a kiss involved. It’s only expected of a Japanese anime. But come on, what about the girl who had the Charmeleon on Steroids?! Did she kiss that fat lizard??! Ewwww!

At this point in the story, I should explain what happened. Louise summoned Saito from Japan, Earth and he got transported to this new world- Helgia or something of the sort- and this country, with it’s fabulous two moons eternally apart of the skyline (one huge blue, a smaller cute pink. Subtle message?). Now Saito, Japanese teenager, only knows Japanese. These people are speaking something else. And Louise, when having to deal with him flipping out- seeing that Charmeleon on Steroids going to freak the best of us, right? And two moons in the sky when there’s supposed to be one sun? Although that’s a minor detail to the damn lizard on fire.- and screaming, Louise expertly and maturely decides that this is the perfect time to test a silence spell, and keeping her zero percent success rate intact, she somehow manages to have him speak and understand their language (which, because it’s an anime, shall obviously be Japanese, despite where in space they are. I mean, even the Namakians knew Japanese…They should’ve at least explained it, like in Doctor Who..).

BUT- plot twist/Some Spoilers- Louise doesn’t suck at magic! Whaaat? And Saito IS one legendary familiar- Gandalfr (yep, he’s a Gandalf with an R =/ ) but I won’t explain. That you’ll have to understand by watching the anime =D It’s really amazing, and totally must be tried out if you like fantasy, magic, romance, comedy, feels, war, and sooome ecchi =S (I hate ecchi, but it’s there…here, at least as far as I’ve seen so far, they just show loads of cleavage…so ecchi related to boobs, nothing else, thank god. So far >.> )

I still haven’t finished it? What-whyyy? Because, it’s got four seasons (the author died after that so it ended sooner than it otherwise would have.), and I watched up til somewhere in the middle or beginning of the third, then dropped it, for whatever reasons back then. Now, I watched from season 1 and 2, all in a looong go, (a few days, please. Not a marathon.) and now I’ve stopped cuz I got sick and did something stupid, anime related stupid, before I started off with season 3.

Here’s some cute fan art again >w<

^(Kirche should be properly dark skinned >.> What’s with changing her complexion?!)

Although this was probably a bit more than a week ago, I never got round to posting all this on Zero no Tsukaima…I was reaaaaally hooked on watching my anime rather than write about it… oopsies =P (then I also started a new anime, not a rewatch like this one- Hunter x Hunter, the 2011 remake, and I wanted to write an initial take on that first…so I did, but then I couldn’t post any of the pictures, for some reason they weren’t uploading, and that infuriated me to no end. Which put me in a foul mood to actually get round to posting this =P)

And here would be a few more pics cuz I did download and save them, so hence I must post them =3

images (7)^Hahahahahahahaha xD See, Louise refers to Saito as a dog and initially treats him as a pet since he’s her familiar- which is usually a magical animal- and this is from one of the endings, where Saito the dog reaches a paw out to his lovely and dazzling little master =3

^I ship Saito and Louise, they’ve had my support from the beginning =) Saito x Louise ❤

saito

 

^This is actually a super important scene in the anime. It’s in a boat. And it’s-spoiler- where Saito confesses! ❤

Ok, that’s all mah pics, and now I gotta update a bit more on what I’ve been doing with anime ^_^ Since these winter holidays I’ve been doing nothing but watch anime =P

And there’s still that thing I did when I was sick yesterday…

Should explain that now. But Fiiiiirst, finish that Hunter x Hunter post! Since all these pictures were uploaded with no problems, those should too now ^_^ Wish me luuuck =3

Buh-byyye~!

Crazy, Chocolate, and Cookies,

ps.
if you thought that was a lot, wait til you see how much I’ve got to type for HxH…I mean, it was supposed to be a first reaction kinda thing, but now I’ve seen the first 80 episodes, I’ve got a looot more to write about =)

 

 

YOLOing it- Last MidTerm

So today was my last exaaaam! Yaaay! Huzzaaaah! All that. I’m tired, kay?

This is after celebrating liberation from the treacherous clutches of a dastardly villainous dictator- Advanced Physics.

I was supposed to type and post this tiny thing after the exam- the tiny interval in which I was supposed to chill for maybe forty minutes before throwing myself into a crazed party mode (ironically enough, I didn’t even go to the ‘party’/Concert, but that’s a story for another post =P).

Soo, how was mah last midterm, hmm?

Utter shiz went down, that’s for sure.

Like, the first paper, MCQs, was pretty goodish-ok, but there were a buuunch of tukkay there…so I just hope my Devine Tukkah hasn’t abandoned me as of yet…Come on, it’s been but a year, it should still work…

But, the second paper? Dear Lordy, help mah, plis! SO TERIBLE. I mean, the stuff I had studied properly, I’m sure I did alright, but there were a bunch of stuff I hadn’t revised properly and hence muddled up, and there was an ENTIRE 1o mark question I had to leave BLANK cuz I hadn’t done the chapter it was from! (It was a chapter I had missed, and it was confusing since I hadn’t done it before.)

So, yeah, I YOLOed it. And I did to the extent that I hastily wrote #YOLO on my paper too. Aziz would’ve been proud xD But yeah, so that’s the story of how I YOLOed Physics. Can I get a Woot Woot? =3

Although my I wrote it REALLY hastily, so it came out pretty light =/ I’m gonna have to trace it in darker once I get that paper back. Ahem, after my parents see it, course. Shiz. They might see it.

Oh well. YOLO.

^The answer to every problem. HA HA HA, no. 

Kids, Be Smart, Be Safe, Be Awesome, but don’t be a 21st Century YOLO-Loser. Just Don’t. It will only result in disownment.

I should be a motivational speaker, I know.

ps.
On a completely Unrelated and Unretarded note, a year ago today my friends and I through a surprise farewell party for an amazing person, a friend called Zain (Miss Incredibly Long Name) at Gloria (…ironically where the concert that I didn’t go to was at..ahem) cuz she was moving to Canada, and had a huuuge, fun celebration. Miss her. Hope she’s well. I think I’ll arrange a Skype meeting with her at the least =P
