MViet Dinner, Holi, and Cramming

Dude, I was not kidding when I said that this was going to be a busy week. I literally had no time to do anything but practice, cram, and work on stuff this whole week. Look at my schedule!

But this week was also pretty fun, lol. I made a lot of new friends and had a good time in between being so busy. I don't know how people juggle having such a busy social life and still pass classes. :c

Monday, I had dance practice with everyone and ended up volunteering to help out with handing out food for the MViet dinner before and after we have our performance the next day. Basically, I was in charge of handing out banh xeo with Jake, lol.

We couldn't practice on the stage because another club had reserved the room for until 9, so we were practicing in the lobby area outside for an hour while everyone else in the club was working on stuff for the event, lol. We only had 20 minutes to practice onstage before I had to run out of there to go to Jackie's house to watch the season finale of Teen Wolf (which dude, that ending!

The next day, right after I got out of class, I went over to help them prepare and get ready for our performance since Shena wanted us to wear some makeup and have our hair curled so that the hats would stay on our heads better, so she had to do that for me since I don't even own a curling iron. Then she had to let Jasmin do her hair since the bathrooms didn't have outlets in them, and she couldn't do her own hair without looking in a mirror. 

Then it was five, and everyone was busy changing into their outfits, and Shena was doing everyone else's hair, and it was time to start serving food! The only thing that sucked was that I hadn't had lunch or anything to eat besides breakfast and a snack in class, so I was starving. In the end, Shena, Jake, and I ended up sneaking food when we weren't that busy, lol.

Then there was the performance, which we couldn't start until Shena's dad came because he was going to be so mad if he missed it, lol. Not gonna lie, I made a couple of mistakes, but people said that we were pretty good and looked like we were having fun. That's prolly because we couldn't stop laughing because Carina kept on whispering "smile guys!" at us throughout the whole performance. 

After the performance, we took a lot of pictures because Shena really likes taking pictures, lol. My Facebook feed is full of them. 

Eventually, it was seven, and we started cleaning up after everyone left. The guys had put up some of the tables and moved the rest to the center of the room so that they were all connected, and we had a feast of the billions of leftovers along with some Vietnamese karaoke. XD 

When we were done eating and actually really cleaning up, there was still so much leftovers, even after people boxed some up to take home. So many boxes, man. Luckily for me, there were still a lot of umbrella cookies left, so I grabbed a bag full, lol. 

But man, cleaning up took a lot longer than I thought it would. Shena and I didn't leave until 9-9:30, and they were almost done putting everything up. 

Then I went home to study for my Marketing test that has been pushed back twice already, lol. I didn't do that much studying, though, because I had to finish coming up with the front design for my club's t-shirt and send an email to my prof so that he could send it out to everyone. 

Kimberly had designed the back, and it looks awesome! Too bad the colors won't be the exact same since the online shop I'm ordering from it doesn't have that peach color. 

But yeah, after advising for summer classes and my regular classes were done on Wednesday, I was in the library, trying to study for my next test before I went to a guest speaker for extra credit for my Marketing class, when I ran into Shena. On the way to the library, I saw a lot of advertisements written in chalk around campus talking about Holi taking place from 5-7 that day and saw them setting up on Cruz Plaza, so I was on Facebook, looking up what exactly the event was about. 

I really wanted to go, but the guest speaker was at 5:30, so I was indecisive. But after running into Shena and talking to her about it and then surprising Alec, who was also in the library, we all decided to go. We ended up running into the girls from the dance performance there, too, lol.

Basically, Holi is an Indian tradition of celebrating the beginning of spring by throwing colored powder at each other, so that's what we did. We changed into the white shirts that they gave out and went to different tables that held bowls of different colored powders and threw them at each other. They also had water balloons, which was awesome. 

The only thing that sucked was the moment when I didn't close my mouth in time, so I ended up getting a mouthful of yellow powder. I couldn't stop spitting out yellow, lol. And my glasses, man! I could barely see after a while. 

The funny thing was that the event was supposed to last two hours, but it ended after 20 minutes because we ran out of colored powder. XD I totally could have made it to the guest speaker presentation if I wasn't covered in powdered, lol.

The cleanup was a pain though. Shena and I spent a lot of time in the library bathroom cleaning off our arms and faces. My sink was slightly stained green. -__-" I changed back into my black shirt and went to my car to change into a pair of shorts that I always keep just in case I work out at school, because I refused to drive home in my black seats wearing colored clothes. :P

But I ended up sticking around for the MacTown Breakers dance practice later that night with the gang from earlier, so I didn't go home until 10 anyway. On the bright side, I'm learning how to do a basic six-step and baby freeze, and we did some fun group exercises.

Like, we all laid in a row on the ground with one person laying diagonally on top of all of us that we were moving every time we rolled to the left or right across the room. Whenever the person at the end was free, they had to quickly run over to the other end so that the person at the top wouldn't fall flat on their face. It was great. We messed up the first few times, but we finally got it right when it was my turn at the top, and we moved Alec all the way to the end of the dance room when it was his turn.

Then we took a group picture where we were doing a pyramid. Shena and her friends really like taking pictures, man. But it did look really cool. XD

Thursday was busy because I had work after classes were over, and even though it wasn't strenuous--I had to learn how to use the big printer for the giant posters we were printing for the conference we were holding next week--I really needed to cram for my Media Law test on Friday because I have not had any time to study for that test, and he gave us 95 pages of notes to study for. 

So yeah, I stayed up until 2:30 studying and then woke up a couple of hours later at 6:30 to continue studying because I wasn't done reading over all of his notes. I even skipped Marketing to study, and I'm not sure how I did on the test. :/

After the test, I went to work on making labels and nametags and helping them with the tote bags afterwards. Then, Cam and I went to dinner because we were starving and haven't hung out in 5ever, lol. He showed me his new house he was living with his roommates, and his room is really nice! Just sucks that he doesn't really like his roommates anymore, lol.

Then we went to dinner at Olive Gardens because I wanted Italian. Our waiter gave me the wrong pasta, so it took a while longer to eat, but my order was really good. The pasta they gave me had way too much onions, lol.

Then I hung out in the TCO lab for a while before picking Marc up at 10 to go to Midnight Movies. We ran into his roommate already in line, so we cut and stayed with them, and then Marc cut right to the front of the line because he knows everybody, so we got our tickets pretty early once they actually started accepting them at 11, lol. 

We were all watching Divergent, and dude, I'm so glad we got there early because the seats filled up fast. The theater was almost completely full, and I swear, almost everyone we talked to had already read the book, lol. But I guess it was a good thing Marc and I hadn't read it yet, because a lot of our friends were disappointed at the changes the movie made. 

But we thought the movie was pretty good. There was a lot more humor than I was expecting, and watching the movie with other college students definitely made it funner because of the comments and clapping and awws going through the crowd, lol. 

Now I really want to read the book, but there's so much to dooooo. :c

So yeah, this has been a very eventful week. Now I need to work on my schedule for next semester and my Marketing project before meeting up with my group tomorrow and study for my Management test on Tuesday this weekend. So much to do...and all I wanna do is watch YouTube videos and catch up on my shows. -__-"

Some more awesome "Let It Go" covers

"Let It Go" is such an awesome song and people's covers are just as awesome. Here's some more amazing covers of the song.

I've followed JunCurryAn on YouTube for a long time, nearly since the beginning of his YouTube career. His violin covers are really good, so it was no surprise that his "Let It Go" cover was also great.

Apparently this Africanized Tribal cover has been going viral for the since it was released, and I'm not surprised after listening to it. It's seriously amazing.

Also, here's a ukulele and guitar version by Sungha Jung, because he's just an amazing musician.

And my sis recently showed me a freaking amazing metal version of "Let It Go" that I just had to share. Listen to it, it's so good!

Shows I'm Currently Watching: Grimm, Criminal Minds, Suits, Lie to Me, Kuroko no Basket

In between watching the last episode of White Collar, I started watching three new tv shows. Yeah, I don't really know what I was thinking either. -__-" What with all of the recent shows I've been watching, it's no wonder the first two shows are in the police/crime genre.

I've only watched two or three episodes of each. Not totally sure if I want to continue watching all of them or not since it's nearing the last month of the semester, and I'm really not going to have time to watch anything what with projects and tests to worry about.

Currently Watching: 

Not gonna lie, I was interested in Grimm because it seemed like a mix of Teen Wolf and Sleepy Hollow, both shows I'm a big fan of. So far, it's not bad. The show's slowly revealing its mystery and mythology, and Nick is an interesting character. I just really hope that his girlfriend doesn't die like how Sam's died in Supernatural, lol. Also, it was much gorier than I expected, which was totally fine with me.

My friends' recommendations usually never prove me wrong. For example, White Collar had been in my watched list on Netflix for a long time, but it wasn't until one of my friends told me about the show and praised it that I eventually started watching it. One of my other friends has been going on about how great Criminal Minds is that I decided to give it a shot since I seemed to be on a criminal kick after watching White Collar.

The first two episodes proved to be interesting, but I haven't exactly warmed up to any of the characters, which makes it hard for me to want to continue watching a show, so I dunno if I'm going to continue watching it. I'm gonna give it a couple of more episodes before I decide, since it took me a while to get into Supernatural, and wow, my last semester would have been so much more productive if I hadn't became addicted to that show. XD

Suits definitely reminds me of White Collar, except for dealing with cons and crimes, the show focuses on courts and laws. It's probably because both shows are from the same company that they both share just the right amount of humor and drama and smart characters to keep me hooked with every episode so far. I just love how arrogant and self-assured Harvey is compared to how out-of-his-league and clever Mike is. Of the three shows I started watching, this one is definitely my favorite so far.

Maybe Later: 

I think I mentioned this in another post a while ago, but I started watching Lie to Me sometime last month because we were talking about nonverbal communication in one of my classes. I watched two episodes and kind of forgot about it. The show was definitely interesting, but I don't know. I wasn't inclined to marathon it like I usually do when I like a show. I feel like I'm just going to continuously watch the show randomly whenever I don't know what to watch on Netflix, lol.

Watching Soon: 

What with all of the basketball games lately, I remembered my love for this anime. :D I've been waiting for the second season to finish airing before marathoning it, and since the last episode airs next week, I think I'm going to start watching this soon!

why did i procrastinate??? ;^;

Why didn't I write the rest of my research paper on Saturday like I had planned? Why did I procrastinate and start writing my research paper at three in the afternoon on Sunday instead? 

This is why.

I'm not gonna regret watching the game at six though, lol. Even if we lost. 

But yeah, it's ass o'clock in the morning, and I'm still not done with this thing. Almost done though. 

I'm kind of sad that my teacher moved our Marketing test to Wednesday instead of it being today, because I'm still definitely not prepared. But on the other hand, I have a presentation on Wednesday and another test to cram for on Friday... :\ Let's not forget the dance practice later tonight and the actual performance tomorrow and an art project that's supposed be finished on Thursday. :/

Yeah, it's another busy week, lol. On the bright side, I think we have another midnight movies this Friday. Although I'm not sure if I'll be up for it, what with everything going on. 

...nah, I'll definitely be up for it. I need a break, lol.

MU: Duke-Slayer :D

Yesterday was a great day. :3

I never considered myself much of a sports fan, but after working at concessions at basketball games for the past two years, I have found myself pretty invested in our men's team, lol. After our last home game, where we won the Atlantic Sun tournament in a nail-biting, super intense game against Florida Gulf Coast University, we reached the NCAA tournament for the first time in 29 years. 

To help support our team, our university rented out buses for students and faculty to ride to go to the game; they left on Thursday afternoon and came back Friday night after the game was over. Because I was supposed to have a test on Friday and a research paper due on Monday, I didn't sign up. Instead, most of my friends and I watched the game on Friday with the rest of the students at Mercer at Mercer Village, which they had closed off and had set up a big LCD screen to show a livestream of the game. 

It was really great for many reasons. My teacher had moved the test to Monday (which is both good and bad for me because research paper! D:) since a lot of students were going on the bus trip, and since a lot of teachers were either canceling their classes on Friday or moving them to a different time to before or after the game was over, my other teacher had canceled Media Law and my Marketing teacher let us out of class early since we were just reviewing for the test. 

So I met up with Marc for lunch at Margarita's, which had all of their tvs turned onto the game. Unfortunately, even thought the game wasn't on for another 45 minutes, the place was already full, so we had to sit at a table outside. Luckily for us, we chose the table right near the door, so we could see the big screen through the open doors. Stephanie came and ate with us since the line at Ingleside's was also ridiculously long, lol.

So we ate and watched the game and then joined everyone else in front of the LCD screen. The weather was really nice, although sitting in place with the sun shining down on you in a crowd of people, really didn't help with the heat problem, lol. But it was still really fun cheering with everyone every time we stole the ball or made a goal. 

The game was pretty evenly tied with us always tied or a point or two behind Duke. That is, until the last two minutes of the game. Oh my God, it was so crazy. Suddenly, everyone was standing up, jumping up and down and cheering and yelling our heads off because we were dominating the game. It was freakin' insane! So many free throws and scores and steals! The crowd was going crazy, and we couldn't be stopped!

It was crazy, just 20 seconds before the game was going to end, the LCD screen stopped working and we were all panicking, lol. So we ran to Margarita's to watch it on their tvs, and it was just as crazy as it was outside, lol, with people standing on their tables and continuous cheering and hooting. It was great.

After that, Marc and I ran back to the square to celebrate with everyone else there. And on the LCD screen, it showed one of our players doing his victory dance, which involved the naenae. Now it's almost every news article about our win and all over vine, lol. 

That, and some article called us the Duke-Slayer, and I friggin love it. That, and lots of people were posting pictures on fb about us tearing up millions of brackets with our win, lol.

But that's not the end of my great day! Afterwards, I hung out with Emily and Meethu since this week was Emily's Spring Break, so she was actually home all week, lol. We decided to go hangout at the mall and then eat at Cheddar's, and I was stopped more than once by people telling me "Go Bears!" or how they watched the game and loved it. This was because I was wearing my MU Basketball tank top that I got for free at our last home game, lol. 

So yeah, it was a great day, and I'm really hoping that we'll win tomorrow's game, because I already signed up for the bus ride to the game (seven hour bus ride!), and I really need to finish my research paper today because I doubt that I'll find time or have enough battery life on my laptop to finish it on the way to or from the game tomorrow. 

So no more procrastinating! I need to get this over with already! >:c

...and I just found out that I'm getting sick. Lovely. I don't think I can handle a bus ride. :\

Regardless, I need to finish this paper today before I get even sicker.

Book Review: Icons (Icons #1) by Margaret Stohl

Title: Icons (Icons #1)
Author: Margaret Stohl
Pages: 448
Publication: May 7, 2013
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Summary taken from goodreads:
Your heart beats only with their permission. 
Everything changed on The Day. The day the windows shattered. The day the power stopped. The day Dol's family dropped dead. The day Earth lost a war it didn't know it was fighting. 
Since then, Dol has lived a simple life in the countryside -- safe from the shadow of the Icon and its terrifying power. Hiding from the one truth she can't avoid. 
She's different. She survived. Why? 
When Dol and her best friend, Ro, are captured and taken to the Embassy, off the coast of the sprawling metropolis once known as the City of Angels, they find only more questions. While Ro and fellow hostage Tima rage against their captors, Dol finds herself drawn to Lucas, the Ambassador's privileged son. But the four teens are more alike than they might think, and the timing of their meeting isn't a coincidence. It's a conspiracy. 
Within the Icon's reach, Dol, Ro, Tima, and Lucas discover that their uncontrollable emotions -- which they've always thought to be their greatest weaknesses -- may actually be their greatest strengths. 
Bestselling author Margaret Stohl delivers the first book in a heart-pounding series set in a haunting new world where four teens must piece together the mysteries of their pasts -- in order to save the future.


Last year, I tried to read BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, which Margaret Stohl famously coauthored. Unfortunately, I couldn't get into the book. It was just too slow-paced and I felt like it was trying too hard being mysterious.

That's why I was a little wary about reading ICONS. However, I was pleasantly proven wrong once I started reading the book. It was interesting and fast enough paced that I was quickly speeding through the book to finally get some answers.

The concept of the story itself was pretty cool and original. I liked that this was about another species that took over the Earth, but the way they were explained was so vague, I hardly knew anything about them other than the fact that the Icons were--and continue being--the reason why no human has been able to fight back. However, like most series, nothing is ever fully explained, especially in the first book.

Anyway, I also liked how there were files and notes in between each chapter. They either added to or help slowly solve the mystery.

While I liked all of the characters, especially Doc, I felt like I didn't know them that well. Even though ICONS takes place from Dol's point of view, I never really knew much about what she was thinking. There were so many things going on one after another, she never had much chance to think about things. And she was always repressing her feelings and in a constant state of confusion because no one ever explains what's going on, so I feel like I didn't really get to know her that well until the very end. And that goes for the other characters too; I got to find out about their pasts, but there weren't many details and I didn't get really know them that well besides from what Dol felt from them. Hopefully they will be clearer in the next book.

If you have enough time, I would definitely recommend this book. Although it's pretty thick, it doesn't take too long to read once you get sucked into the story.

Forehead Mustache

Omg, I couldn't stop laughing after I saw this picture. XD

I mean, were you trying to be ironic or something?

Ermagerd, I'm so tired. I should have studied Marketing during my two hour lunch break instead of goofing around on Netflix (can't believe I forgot my headphones again -__-") and reblogging way too many things on Tumblr, because I'm not getting any studying or writing done tonight, not with dance practice in an hour. D:

Sunday Rainy Day Blues

I've noticed that it's always rainy on Sundays--at least it is where I live anyway--which really sucks because rainy days always make me sleepy and lazy. I mean, I don't mind rainy days during the summer when I don't have anything to do, but for the majority of the year, I do the bulk of my homework assignments and projects on Sundays, so rainy days aren't really conductive for me. :P

Plus, I just really want to finish watching White Collar. -__-"

But my research paper... D:

My White Collar Addiction

These last few days, I have been completely binging on the tv show White Collar. The show has been in my Instant Queue on Netflix for a while, but it wasn't until my friend, Forrest, told me about it a few weeks ago that it really caught my interest. Since I didn't really have much to do over my Spring Break, I decided to start watching White Collar.

Basically, the show is about a criminal named Neal Caffrey, who is a super suave conman and forger using his skills to help the FBI solve white collar cases. The show is intense and comedic with just enough drama to keep you watching the next episode.

I'm still not sure if I regret my decision or not. :P Because, like I said, I became completely addicted to the show these past few days. I watched a few episodes on Monday and Tuesday and liked it the show, but then, suddenly, I became really addicted and invested in the show, marathoning whole seasons on Wednesday and Thursday and half of today. 

There are currently five seasons out, with a sixth season still in the talks, and I'm already halfway through season five. My addictions and lack of self-control scare me some times, lol. I was totally prepared on finishing watching all five seasons throughout the rest of the month at the least, not by the end of the week. -__-"

But the show's so good! I love the characters and the plot so much! I just love Neal and Mozzy and Peter and Elizabeth and Jones and Diana; their characters are interesting and complex and great. And the cons that they pull while catching the bad guys are genius and nerve-wreckingly exhilarating. Some episodes are just like watching Ocean's Eleven, full of great distractions and beautifully executed stunts. Not to mention the character development, especially when you compare Neal's growth with each season!

And I love how diverse their cases are because it lets all of the characters go undercover as some of the most hilarious people in their situation. Like the time when Diana was a cigar girl, or when Neal was a substitute teacher for a posh school, or when Neal, Peter and Jones were wealthy bachelors for a speed dating event.  

But yeah, I've been watching White Collar these past few days instead of working on my research paper, so I'm completely screwed since I only have tomorrow to write it, but it's okay. I just need a rough draft for Monday, and I think I can do that within 24 hours. 

However, it's already 30 minutes until midnight, and I'm running on three hours of sleep, so I'm just gonna continue watching White Collar and worry about the paper tomorrow. :P

25 Things You Have To Try In Your 20s At Least Once

I found this list over at Thought Catalog that I thought was really cool. I haven't done any of the things listed except for #13, but I really want to now that I've read about them. :D

And you should definitely check out Thought Catalog; they've got interesting articles for everyone.

25 Things You Have To Try In Your 20s At Least Once

1. Call that person you’ve been thinking about for longer than you can remember, but whose rejection you have always feared. Just pick up the phone, hold your breath, and accept the fact that knowing how they feel is better than living in limbo.

2. Go on a camping trip with a solid group of your friends, a cooler of drinks, and enough grillable meats to last you for at least twice as long as you actually need. Get really scared when you think you hear a bear, and then realize it’s just your friend coming back from peeing.

3. Learn how to make your favorite restaurant dishes, even if they don’t taste as good as the original. Learn what actually goes into the food you love so much.

4. Apply to a job that you really want, but which you know you have next to zero chance of actually landing. You’ll risk nothing, and may actually be pleasantly surprised by getting the job.

5. Go an entire Saturday without a smartphone, and intentionally get lost in your own city — ask for directions from strangers and read street maps if you need to find your way back somewhere.

6. Approach someone at a bar who seems cute and cool, and without even thinking about it, just start up a conversation with them. Remind yourself that you don’t even know this person, and even if they don’t like you back, it will have no bearing on your life.

7. Tell a close friend that you love them, and don’t worry about it feeling weird. If they’re a good friend, they will love hearing how much you care.

8. Paint your room a really odd color, one that you’ve always wanted to live in but looked at as too “childish” or “bold” for an adult’s apartment.

9. Paint over it right away if you don’t like it, but give it at least a week to test it out.

10. Force yourself, for an entire month, to wear the kinds of clothes that actually make you feel good about yourself, even if they aren’t what is currently considered “stylish.” Just focus on looking like the “you” that exists in your head, and not caring about what other people think.

11. Get a job that you can quit with no remorse, and leave it as soon as you save enough money to go somewhere far away.

12. Go to a country where you know nobody, and take a book of translations that never leaves your right hand. Fumble through conversations and force yourself to ask questions in stores or restaurants, even if you think you’ll look silly.

13. Eat big plates of delicious food, and don’t think for a second about the caloric content.

14. Throw a surprise birthday party for a friend who has been going through a bad time, and who hasn’t had time to plan their own birthday party. Even if it’s just a few friends getting together for dinner, let them know that people care about them.

15. Bring breakfast for everyone in your office and don’t expect them to do anything in return (even though, if it’s a decent office, they definitely will).

16. Practice having a conversation with someone where you focus entirely on listening, and don’t think at all about what you’re going to say next so you can concentrate on everything they’re saying as they say it.

17. Plan a weekend trip to the beach with friends, pack your car with blankets and coolers and swimsuits, and rent a shitty little place right on the boardwalk. Spend the whole time eating fries with malt vinegar and Old Bay, riding old roller coasters, and getting sand in your hair.

18. Make a four-course meal for someone you love, and set up the table all fancy and nice.

19. Spend time with someone much older than you — like your grandparents’ age — and just listen to what they have to say about life. Play board games or cards with them, and think about what you can learn from them.

20. Apologize to someone you slighted, and mean it.

21. Organize a night out with your coworkers so that everyone can get to know each other and have fun in a more cool setting, and be the person who takes the initiative to reserve rooms and coordinate schedules. Make things happen.

22. Take a dance class, and stick with it.

23. Move to a city you want to live in, even if it means having to work odd jobs and long hours to pay for everything. Make the choice to be in the places where you want to be, and live your life in the right surroundings.

24. Get a bike, and ride it as much as you can. Memorize public transportation. Learn how to get yourself around without a car, and rid yourself of all of the expenses it comes with.

25. Pack up a bunch of lunches and toiletries and give them out to the homeless people you pass every day. Decide that you can do something about the sadness you see on your walk to work, and actually follow through with making a difference. Be generous with your time, your money, and your compassion, and realize how little it takes to be that person if you really want to.

Really Cool Minimal Logo Designs

This was part of one of my art blog assignments, choosing my favorite logo from this list, but I couldn't decide my favorites because a lot of them are just amazingly simple but effective. So here's my favorite out of 60. It's still quite a lot, lol.
