People who are fans of Breaking Benjamin, no.  Just, no.  I'm talking going to the gym, working out heavily for an hour, and not being able to think or breathe afterward.  I want to be tiny.  Like, actually be the size of a child.  Okay, maybe not.  That would make every dude I know a pedophile.  But still.  I am working my ass off that I feel comatose and come back to life eventually.  I was tired to the point that, I laid in bed, playing "Yankee Bayonet" for 2 hours and then met up with my programmer friend.  Good day.

I sit down to do it.  To review everything I need to know for next year.  And I go at it for a good hour, getting super excited that maybe I'll understand something and do well next year.  But then I realize it's summer.  And then I get all sad.  I should be out on a Friday.  I kind of want to go do a work out.  But once again, it's Friday and I've already worked out.  I miss college and having friends not being so far away.



Taken from Tequila Always Helps
My endurance hasn't been tested this hard since I went to tennis camp.  My entire body does not exist right now.  During the workout, I wanted to die after 10 minutes.  And had 35 to go.  But with the music, the enthusiasm, and everyone else just doing it...the motivation was incredible.  And I want to go back.  But after I fix my knee.


Priest (M.R.)

Taken from Google
I found Priest  to be a perfect summer movie.  It does not require much thinking, has a fun plot, and awesome explosions and fight scenes.  I am a fan of pretty mindless vampire-related action movies, but this pretty much took the cake.

Imagine putting together a horror movie about dystopia, mixing in an action movie, adding elements of Van Helsing, throwing in a Western, and add in vampires and that's the movie in short.  I had a lot of fun seeing it with my friends, but not sure if it is worth the cost of 3D.

Rating: 6/10


Summer Reading

Taken from la dolce vita
I want to read this summer.  I want to read a lot.  Something like ten books all summer.  Or something.  I want to get my literacy on.  So when people approach me, I can have something really unique and awesome to talk about.  Like how much I liked Dune or how quirky Super Sad True Love Story was.  Or maybe I didn't like a book.  So I can talk about them with the same criticism I do my music.  And to not sit on my butt all summer.  Well, sit on my butt doing nothing.  Amendment!

Too Much Fun with Scarves (B.O.A.)

As you can see, I'm in a library
It's too early in the morning to be doing anything that's actually productive.  So I've been blogging.  And learning how to tie scarves in fun ways.  In this pic, I tried to do a bow.  The tie is a little too bulky to do a cute one, but it looks fancy enough.

The shirt is from Urban Outfitters and the scarf is Hardtail.  Yeah, I know my hair is a mess, but screw it.  I'm in the thrust of finals week.  Two more tests left, wish me luck!


It's Misty (B,O.A.)


5/17/11 by jladz65 featuring vintage tops

I woke up this morning feeling like I should do something cute with my appearance.  So I decided to wear one of my favorite tank tops with my favorite pants with my favorite flats and favorite jacket.   I also wore a score but I could not find it online.  Sadface, I know.

The tank top is from Abercrombie and Fitch (sue me).  The jeans are from BDG from Urban Outfitters.  The flats are kimchi blue for Urban Outfitters.  And the jacket is from Michael Kors.  The scarf I'm wearing is from Hardtail. 

Here's a pic of me with my scarf.  I look tired.  It's what studying for multiple hours a day does to people:


Last Week

Taken from closer ❦ to the sun
As in, it's the last week.
Not like, last week as in the
Week before this one.

It's the last week here.
And I'm spending time with friends


Exciting, I know.
But after Thursday,
I'm spending time with them not studying.

Watching movies,
Waling around.

The packing is going to be the worst.

Unlike last year when I moved here,
I did not abandon my room completely.

But this time, I am.

I'm never coming back to this
Ghetto of a dorm I lived in.
Well, I might, but that'd be creepy.

But either way,
My possessions are going into bags
And boxes
And in plastic
And the room will be like
I found it in August 2010.


"And I Dressed Up Like a Princess"

Taken from iheart-myself
Lyrics in title from "The Competition" by Kimya Dawson
I just want to be as good as I'd like to be.  Being better than the person that I was just yesterday.  I mean, it's hard but it's a better standard to hold myself up to.  Than to compare my life to that of someone else.  I've got my own stuff to deal with and I'll deal with it in the best way that I can.  But sometimes it gets hard when it seems like people aren't in the same place.  I just want to meet someone who can completely relate to me, but that would involve wasting precious minutes that I could use studying for my finals.

So I'll dress as cute as possible.  I'll write sentences so elegantly that my English teacher might cry.  I'll write the right equations and the TA's will just throw points at me.  I will sort the mail quickly and be the most polite that I can be.  I'll write down bio processes with precision and accuracy.  It'll be the best finals week that anyone has seen.


Slope Day Eve (B.O.A.)

Taken by my friend.

I realized I haven't done one of these in a while.  But this passed weekend was slope day and me and my friends went out that Thursday to celebrate the last day of classes.  It was too much fun haha.

The tank top is from Victoria's Secret, the scarf from a vendor, the pants from American Eagle, the shoes from Amazon,the hat from Urban Outfitters and the bracelet from my mom.


That Was That

Taken from the pursuit of happyness
So at Slope Day yesterday, I sat on a lawn with my best friend and he said "you need to find out once and for all."  Of course, regarding to how that one boy felt about me.  So I did and it wasn't nice.  And my best friend turned to me and said "Now you know and you can move on."  So I'm deciding to go down that road.


My Two Cents (N.a.P.)

Taken from Yahoo! news
I want to preface this with the statement that I am not one for revenge.  And that is mostly because I had a Christian upbringing where if someone wrongs you, turn the other cheek, walk away, talk it out, or in general do anything that doesn't involve hurting the other person because it's better for the soul.  Or because you're better than that, pick your side.

That being said, there's also the concept of justice.  Justice is generally defined as moral righteousness or exacting some form of punishment on people who performed misdeeds.  Sure, it is not right to revel in the fact that someone just died, but this man wronged a few thousand people in a matter of hours ten years ago.  I don't think the US should have out right killed him, but if he went down in a fight, then at least they gave him a shot.  I'm sure the US would have much rather given him a trial and heard his side of the story than just taking a gun to his head, as South Park seems to imply (South Park is not a credible source for anything, just so you know).  Some people argue, this point I agree with, that they gave the suspects a trial, but that's because they were suspects; it wasn't a known fact unlike in Osama Bin Laden's case.  But that doesn't mean we should have outright killed him.  But if they were planning on taking him and he wouldn't go without a fight and got killed during the raid, that's what happened.  Can't change that.

Most parts of the US are celebrating.  Hell, people are posting statuses equating it to Harry Potter or talking about how coincidental it is that 66 years ago, Hitler was also announced dead on May Day.  That's people's means of expressing themselves.  Others are worried or fearful of what is to come.  Al-Qaeda just lost one of its leaders, so they are probably mournful of that.  And perhaps even planning on retaliating.  But I guess all we can do is hope that things will get better, because right now, there is no guarantee.


Music Shout Out (M.S.O.)

Hey guys,

So I am ending the segment of my blog entitled "Music Shout Outs" or M.S.O.  I decided to make a whole other site for on tumblr because pictures would be easier to acquire and I can get more readership through that.  That does not mean I am transferring this blog to tumblr as well.  I like having it on blogspot.  But the URL for the music critique is: Music Shout Outs.  I hope you guys enjoy it!
