I finished the first day of my exam today, whoohoo! It bothers me that I got the last question wrong for sure (no, self, lambda can't be larger than one when it's a proportion, omgfuuuuuuu ;;;; I don't know what the correct answer is, but I know for certain that I'm 100% wrong X3;;;;), but whatever, it's done and over with! I didn't think I could sit still for more than six hours (I ended up taking around seven hours), but I managed to override my urge to just put my head down and take a nap in the middle of the exam. Tomorrow is going to be just as terrifying, but at least it'll be a shorter day! And then, one more day on Thursday, and assuming I pass all of the parts (omg, do not want to take quant again or an econ course D:) this should be my last exam ever! \o/

My collaborators are all like, can you do this and this? Oh, right, you have comps -- do them after comps, okay? And I'm all like, D: D: I want a break D: I still need to email a couple of people and tell them that I'm going to Europe and won't have internet access. X3

Also: Thanks to whomever sent me the anonymous gift! The notification was the first email I read this morning and it definitely made me feel much better before my exam -- so, awesome timing, whomever you are ♥♥!

Also-also: This Castiel-meets-the-Ghostfacers video is hilarious -- even if you're not fan of either Castiel or the Ghostfacers, the video is worth a watch. ;)

Also-also-also: I'm listening to the new Super Junior album and it's delightful ♥ And the album cover? Is lolarious~ (oh, Siwon~~~ XDD)

Oh, how I miss fangirling over them ♥♥♥
Also, there was this one time back in second year where my housemates and I played that song over and over for about a week. ;;;

1a. My present state:


1b. My desired state:


1c. Oh, exams. :|

2. After spending the past two hours trawling through AHBL con posts, I really, really wish I could fly to BC for the con in August! I also kind of wish that I'd spent those two hours studying...

3. I don't know what pretty boys prancing around and fake!kissing has to do with saving the earth, but, hey, I'm all for it! Oh, Suju ♥

4. So, what's with the all the clamouring for Dreamwidth accounts lately? I suspect the main difference between Dreamwidth and the other LJ-copycats that people have attempted to migrate to (e.g. IJ, GJ) is not one of function, but rather: "all the cool kids have one!" That being said, I'm quite content to be on LJ, in the suburbs of fandom. I'll jump on the bandwagon with the last stragglers if fandom in its entirety migrates over.

Sorry Sorry is ridiculously catchy. I've had it on repeat non-stop for the past half hour. I hope the rest of the album is as good as this!

eta: And speaking of Korean music, I randomly downloaded Songs for Ophelia by Ibadi on some music rotation community yesterday, and oh man, the entire album is just gorgeous. Try out one of the tracks here! I highly recommend the entire mini album.

1. Wonder Boys will never not be delightful to watch (though their previous performance was a bit better). The dance moves! The slinky slinky hips! Hee! How cute are Sungmin and Taemin? And that boy from 2AM (I think...? 2AM and 2PM...are they two different bands? [livejournal.com profile] dear_whimsy??) has awesome facial expressions.

2a. So, funny story. Last week, people on LJ were saying how they watched SGA 5x19 and how alkdjfs;k awesome it was. Thing is, the episode is due to air on January 2nd. For a moment, I had thought that maybe I skipped forward in time! Yes, that would mean that I missed out on a week-and-a-half of vacation time, but maybe it would also mean that I had somehow finished all my grad school apps! But then common sense kicked in and I realized the episode was leaked online -- and of course I rushed to download it. I've watched it several times since because it is just that awesome. The downside was that I still had to do all my applications myself (two done, three more to go! or four more. IDK.)

2b. 5x20, the show finale (D:!!!), was leaked online as well. I kind of want to watch it, but at the same time, I really really don't (and not just because of the McKeller line). I never did watch the Season 10 finale of Friends -- I've watched almost every episode of that show at least twice, but not the finale. In my mind, if I don't watch the ending, then it hasn't ended! How's that for awesome logic?

3a. Does anyone know where I could obtain the Merlin soundtrack? I found a handful of torrents, but none of them had seeders. :(

3b. I haven't been actively seeking out Merlin fic, but I came across this Merlin fratboy!AU and it's pretty fabulous (check out the sequel too!). The thing I like about fanfic, compared to original fiction, is that no matter what kind of crazy setting you throw the characters into, they are still essentially the characters you know and care about (the assumption here is that you're reading good!fic ;) none of that fanfiction.net stuff). It's like going out with good friends instead of meeting new strangers.

7. I've lost my train of thought. There are cherries downstairs and I want to eat 'em.

I went to Chinatown today and bought two wee bamboos.
They will be named either:
a) Bruno and Boots
b) John and Rodney
c) Hyukjae and Junsu
I haven't decided yet, but regardless, I will shower them with my love and they will flourish. :D

I moved back into my teeny close-to-campus room yesterday. I'm feeling a bit homesick, like I always do at the beginning of the year. I guess it's because I know that one of these days, when I move out, I really will be moving out and my parents' house won't be my home anymore and I'm no where near ready to accept that. Next year scares me so badly because I'll be done undergrad and will be one giant step closer to leaving home.

Also, the thing about living on my own is always feeling hungry, even when I've eaten a decent-sized meal. The constant eating last year might have contributed to my unwanted weight gain. X3 I simply must go to the gym more this year.

The thing about living here is that I feel more of an urge to go out and meet up with friends. When I'm at home, whether during the summer or the weekends or the holidays, I feel so reluctant to even step out the house. I met up with two friends today, separately, and I feel kind of drained and worn out, but still kind of good. I sat gossipping for hours with one friend and I'm glad we were able to chat for so long because we drifted away for a while, and it made me miss our first year a lot (I saw so many frosh today on campus, wearing their vibrant t-shirts and cramming as many of them as possible into a single bus shelter... Doesn't feel that long ago that I was one of them, fresh and new out of high school, living on my own for the first time). First year was so...turbulent; there were times that I felt awful and scared, but other times that I felt great and that maybe I belonged. I hope this year will be a good one, a memorable one.

My friends all find it rather amusing and surprising that I like Stargate Atlantis so much, because I'm, apparently, "not the sci-fi type". LOL. Just because I haven't seen Star Wars or Star Trek doesn't mean I can't be a sci-fi fan! I'm not huge on sci-fi (I'd choose arcane magic over technobabble and super-duper-spaceships), to be honest, but I do like a good sci-fi story from time to time, especially if the characters are engaging.

I'm trying to convince a friend that Asian boyband boys can be both hot and cute. She insists that Asian-boyband-boys are cute and manly-scruffy-men are hot, but I think I may have successfully convinced her to see my way by bombarding her with pictures of Siwon, haha. The Shibrows = cute, the ShiAbs = hot. Hee.

--
Apparently Henry is back in Toronto, but alas, I did not catch a glimpse of him today as I walked around downtown with my friend (but we weren't looking for him. we were looking for chicken shawarma. I had shawarma the first time ever today! It was yummy, if a bit messy.)

1) Since everyone's talking about Twilight:
I've read the first two books, about half of the third, and an awesomely cracked up summary of the fourth. I don't know whether to crack up or to be horrified by Breaking Dawn (I'm kind of leaning towards D:!! because I have a thing against babies but that's another issue for another day). I...don't think I will be finishing this series. Let's just say, if the main appeal of the books stems from inserting yourself into Mary Sue Bella's place, I would not want to be in her shoes for a good portion of Breaking Dawn.

2) Pyjama Party MV
...
......
.........
...SUNGMIN/PINK SNAKE OTP!
It's interesting to note that both SJ-H MVs featured a group of girls...BUT THE SPARKLING GHEI CANNOT BE MASKED. SJ-T is about a different music genre, SJ-M is about a different language, SJ-KRY is about pretty boys singing pretty ballads, and SJ-H IS ABOUT THE SPARKLING GHEI. TRU FAX.

--
Okay, that's enough crack for one afternoon. I'm going back to marathoning SGA. But oh wait, SJ-M's Bravely Going Forward just came out. DILEMMA. :|

(1) Art muse still at large. D: I want it back back back.
I finished two of the doodles from the doodlie!meme a few days ago, but just scanned them in today.
Hankyung; Atobe/Oshitari )

(2) We're going to Florida for a week in mid-August...! A club/apartment/place with wireless♥. The thing I'm looking forward to the most is sitting on the balcony looking over the beach, listening to the ocean waves, soaking in the sea breeze, and basking in the loving glow of my computer screen. Now that is my idea of a vacation. XD

My computer addiction aside, anyone going to be in the area around that time? I think we're an hour or so away from Orlando; my mom's just like, you can go meet your internet friends if you want, and I'm like, LOL okay. Anything exciting to do in Orlando or Jacksonville? We'll be landing at the airport in Jacksonville and spending about a day there.

(3) This is the cutest thing I've seen all week alksja;flsdj Heebum and Champagne ♥♥ Makes me want to get a kitty and name it Heechullolll

(3.5) I'm not one for sleepovers, but I would totally go to this pyjama party! Teukie's messy hair! Eunhyuk's bunny tail! ...Shindong.......I think I preferred the 'fro. ;;;; My favourite Shindong hair would have to be his Don't Don style (I liked Teukie's Don't Don hair the most as well).

(4) The great thing about finding a new fandom is that you have a whole slew of good!fic just waiting for you to discover (and these people do podfic too which means being able to listen to fic on my commute which is all sorts of awesome and I have successfully managed to contain my facial expression, though I end up biting my lip a lot, and contain fangirlish squees and it's still a little awkward listening to NC17 fics on the bus but whatever :D;;;). The bad thing is that OMG SO MUCH WORK I HAVEN'T EVEN TOUCHED AKLDJAS;FDS;SOSCREWED. I wish all this work would go away so that I can happily waste my time marathoning SGA non-stop without feeling guilty. D:

(5) To end this post in a more upbeat note...Henry's ^__^ face makes me ^__^ in response. Also, he fails in every language he tries to speak on-screen, lol♥.
