Hai thar <3

YES. I'm back. Hoochah.
What has happened? Man, it's been like three-fourths of a year since I last updated this page. I really gotta get back on it, haha. Freshman year was about to start up when I last updated this thing and now lookie, it's almost over. Upperclass buddies halfway done with freaking out with APs.

But yes I shall write here a brief* summary of my freshman year, seeing as how it's almost over with only about a month left to go. So expect a giant delicious wall of text, not exactly of specific of events, but rather just general things that make me me.

Hmmm. So, I'm a bandy. Of Thousand Oaks High School. Sure, general views on band aren't exactly all cool, but I must attest that band, at least at my school, is a delicious...deliciousity. Seriously. If you try hard enough you'll make over nine thousand friends. I play the tenor sax, and I'm in the jazz band. Asians and jazz. Hmmmmmmmmm. I must say that marching around on football fields in competition and general ass-kickery was one of the highlights of first semester. Then there was spring drumline second semester, which was also fun. Sure, we didn't do so hot in competition there, but as a group I do believe we are very close to one another, which is the most important part of any team activity. Da ruv.

Yes, so another thing that happened to me is Sherry <3
She's absolutely amazing, and we've been together for more than six months now. You're probably not too interested in that, though, and this isn't really my "relationship situation rant blog" (*cough*) so I won't bore you with details. But yes, she is amazing and I love her <3

I've also really opened up socially. Like, (wow, I'm so Californian I have trouble not going "like, like" etc. Shoot me xD) if I put myself in where I was last year, I would totally not have seen myself to be where I am now. Back then, in eighth grade, my friends and I had our own little clique, and it was a very tight circle, but it was also rather exclusive, I must say. And there was always some barrier between people like us and then the so-called "popular" kids. At least, for me, the barrier has broken down and I really see no distinction now between "popular" people and "not popular" people. It's who they are that matters, not how many friends they have. I don't exactly see what my point was in saying that, but since I've already typed that out I guess I've decided I'm too lazy to go delete that and find something better to write. Welcome to my world.

But yeah, so things just kinda played out. And then swine flu happened. Funniest thing ever, the way people started panicking. I love how easily some people just take everything the media says as fact. So, we were all just laughing about the general situation, and then news came that it had spread to one of the three district high schools. They got closed down, and their prom got postponed for a month, which, cynical as it might be, just made us laugh harder, because the CDC had set a policy saying that schools had to close down all school-related activities for at least a week, but then a day or two after that high school got closed, they retracted that policy. Basically, they didn't get their free days off, and their prom got owned for nothing. Ouch.

Moving on now. Yesterday was tres fun. Woke up pretty early to work the band carwash, which was good fun. Got freaking drenched by Gil, who was manning the hose. Awesome. Nothing better than waking up and realizing you're sick and then getting owned in the face with freezing water. Oh well. It was pretty fun waving signs around and holding them around your waist so people think you're naked. Oh, the stares we got. We also got alot of cars in the car wash so I guess people like a giant cluster of high school males who appear to be naked and/or are holding the signs on their butts and waving them around. Wheeeee.

After the carwash, I went to go play at the jazz festival that was happening that day, and I do believe we performed very well. Looking forward to hearing the judges' tapes and seeing how we can improve.

Today is Mother's Day! My dad and I "forgot" about it, then we surprised her with the iPhoto book we had ordered. She liked it <3

Anyway, *breathe*, that's my rambling post for today. Rambly rambling rambles. Sorry it wasn't about any one specific thing, but I'm just startin up again. So bear with me, people/person (does anybody read this?). ;]

Bikes = Yurgh

Okay so yeah, today was pretty much focused around one thing: Fixing my bikes. Yeah. Um, it didn't work out like I thought it would so I'll just say yeah it wasn't very fun and I was mildly irritated at the end. Played Sim City for a little bit too. Not a very eventful day as you can see, and thus, a very short post. But here's a pictar.



Okay so I'm about an hour late for this to be yesterday, which is when I was supposed to get this post up but mkay.

Mikey's amazing bunny Momo.

Okay so, haha. I’m sure no one reads this blog anyway but yeah! I’ve got good news for…uh…I guess no one. I’m going to start blogging here again. So welcome back, Thermite and Anarchy! The format of this blog shall be a daily log (hence the “log” in “blog”), but as a bonus for the first post (and because interesting things happened yesterday), I’m going to go over both today and yesterday. Woohoo.

Ok so since a blog is generally formatted newest coming first, I’ll write about today first then. So, basically I got up incredibly early for me (9 am) and went to my saxophone lessons. My teacher, Tom Peterson, is truly a great man. Not only is his character very outgoing and friendly, but he has also played the sax for 50 years, including some years in Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. But yeah, I play tenor sax, which does happen to be the sexiest instrument ever. Although bass is close. So then after that, I returned home, bothered my little sister, ate lunch, and then embarked on one of my rather common trips to my grandparents’/aunt’s/uncle’s house down in Hacienda Heights. About an hour drive or so. Man, my baby cousin is so dang cute. He’s going to be eight months old tomorrow, and he sure seems to like crawling on you while you slouch on the couch. Unfortunately, I also learned that he likes sticking his fingers in my mouth, along with drooling all over my shirt. Aah, the potential of youth!

Anyway, so from there we went out to eat Chinese food, as we always do when we go to LA (I wish we could eat something besides Chinese). So basically once I get back from that, I bug my little sister some more, and talk to some other friends as well, including a friend who had just returned from Japan, and another friend who had just arrived there. Funny. Well yeah at the moment I’m on the car ride back from Hacienda. Yay. I have five hours of battery left (MacBook Pro ftw).

And then yesterday was more of a normal day but it was still kinda fun. I got up at 2 pm, and went to go play GMod, which by the way, is amazingly fun and I recommend it to all of you who have ten bucks to spend (for those who already have a Source game. For those who don't, you’ll have to buy a Source game and GMod for twenty-five). Then I went to go feed Michael’s bunnies, because he’s out of town for swimming Junior Olympics. Go him! Of course, this was a Friday so I was planning to go to youth group that evening, but evidently the people I usually carpool with weren’t available so I got screwed over. Oh well. So I went to go hang with Victoria, and that was pretty fun. Went to Michael’s house to see his bunnies, because they’re awesome, and we called him up to make fun of him, saying he should probably clean his sheets before he sleeps in his bed. He was like “LOLWUT”. Epic.

Languages, Languages...

Ugh...right now, I'm learning so many languages. Not that I'm complaining though :)

I'm Chinese, so I'm learning Chinese from the local Chinese School (which happens to suck, but my mom pretty much only speaks Chinese to me so I get plenty of practice).

Over the summer, I gained interest in Japanese, due to the extremely high awesome factor that it carries. I'm self-tutoring right now, but I plan to take the Japanese course in high school next year (although I heard they don't learn much there).

I'm also learning Korean from a friend. It happens to be the only language I'm learning (besides English, but I'm not really learning that anymore, obviously) that exclusively uses an alphabet! Yeyyy~. The alphabet's pretty freakin easy too.

The ironic thing is I'm teaching my friend Chinese and what little Japanese I know and he's teaching me Korean during our English class. Funny stuff.

So, let's just assume it's spring. This is the time when various animals come out of hibernation, or if you will, hiatus.

The other blog I was doing, Exunctly, has pretty much died (Like anyone else coming out of a dead team project, I blame creative differences :P). Besides, I've decided if I'm going to do a blog, I'd rather do it by myself. So, here we are. I'm bringing this blog back to life.

Hopefully it'll last and not fall into the dark depths of neglect.

This Blog is Now on Hiatus.

Ok, so I started a new blog with my bud, called Exunctly. I'll be putting all (or most?) of my blog posts there instead.

My posts are generally satire, in a twisted and warped way :D

His are generally rants (with explicit language, so if you can't stand that keep away from his stuff)

See it here.

A Rant on Wikipedia's Featured Articles

Ok, so I'm sure you don't care at all, but I seriously need to get this off of my chest. What. The. Hell. Is. Up. With. Wikipedia's. Featured. Articles?! I mean, they're so RANDOM. Chad? Scouts Wood Badge? Chicken Processing Plant Fire? THOU?! WONDERBRA?! Nobody cares! Every once in a while, something interesting DOES come up, but only every once in a while! It's such a waste of space on a page that gets many hits per day. They should have something relevant to current times or important events in history, not some fucking shark attacks in 1916. They sure have the potential to choose useful articles, such as the one on death cap mushrooms or the one on Japan. But noooo, they still don't do it. Get a grip, seriously.

Now obviously if anyone reads this someone's going to be offended. If you're one of those people, it's a rant. It's my opinion. Get over it.
