THE BITCHING COMMENCES...
(Meanwhile, I will be at ACen attempting to distract myself from the fact that the boys are in LA at this very moment. ;__;)
This is the best DBSK fandom/pimp post ever!!! *o*~~ (Not dial-up friendly, however. Ignore the picture of Uchi & Pocky at the top. D:)
I especially like how the girl finally realized the greatness of Dong Bang through my favorite YunJae fanvid. (And it is also probably the sappiest YunJae fanvid ever. BUT THAT IS OK because YunJae is naturally fluffy and ♥♥♥ when they're not being neurotic. :D)
AND SPEAKING OF YUNJAE:
The Haptic Battle CM has been subbed!! :D
I find it so amusing that they decided to use YunJae for the love triangle plot.... which will obviously never work because
YunJae radiates too much gay Jaejoong is SO not the love rival type. We all know that IRL Jae would fangirl over billiardplaying!Yunho along with Tiff, and the two of them would be all "HAENG UN LEADER-SSHI WAIWAI o(^^o)(o^^)o" together.
Who could blame them? *o*~
EDIT: And BTW, Junsu is by far my favorite in these CMs. WHY SO CUTE. *~*
LOL WHAT A FAIL. Though in my defense, pretty much everyone went into it not expecting to do well because the test isn't even geared towards high school students as much as it is for teens who learned the language at home (who seem to be the majority of test-takers).
The speaking section was particularly gruesome, since we were not AT ALL prepared for responding to questions on-the-spot. And even the questions that allowed four minutes time to think & plan was still utter failure since the students were expected to be able to speak for two minutes... and most of us could only think of things to say for the first 1 through 1 1/2 minutes. That and a lot of us ended up laughing out of sheer awkwardness into the microphones. >_>;;
Aced it. Though I better have after all the studying I did. DD:
I'm hoping for a 5, since that means I'll get to skip the introductory courses at Kenyon. 8D
- Language & Comp.
I AM SO ANNOYED WITH HOW I DID ON THIS TEST. :(((
Because this was totally the exam that I was supposed to get a 5 on, easy. But I screwed up one of the essays, since the prompt asked about rhetorical strategies, but my brain mistook that for rhetorical modes. (And even then, I got one of the terms wrong!) SO THERE GOES MY FIVE. :(((
We had Lang class almost directly afterwards, during which we basically had a food party, and through some of it I was just like, "I'M GOING TO GET A THREE!!!!!1" and my friends were like, "omg the lowest score you're going to get is a four shut up plz" :((
Totally unrelated, but I just found out that one of my little, barely-a-teenager cousins from Cali. had a huge growth spurt over the past year, which also kicked up her metabolism and made her super skinny. And she was already pretty, fairly tall, and mature-looking when I last saw her over the summer, so now she probably looks like a twenty-year old model at the age of thirteen. My question is, WHY DIDN'T THAT HAPPEN TO ME WHEN I WAS A PRETEEN. STUPID SHORTNESS! STUPID METABOLISM!! *drives away sorrows with a tub of ice cream* :'((
Just wanted to make a few quick notes:
- Now that my AP Psych exam and various other things are over with, I'm more-or-less done with my semi-study exile. Expect more frequent posts on the writing journal again! :DD
- I found out that That One Problem I had a while back was partially resolved today. :D
- I also found out that I have a half day this Friday, which means I get to head off to ACen early. :D
- Checked the calendar and remembered that my birthday is in a week. I feel like I should attempt to care more, but eh. Guess I'll never be much of a "yay it's my birthday!" person. ^^;;
However, Jaejoong is perfectly willing to strip for early birthday greetings.
- Staying up studying for Psych, and I just ran into this interesting tidbit:
Compared with people of the same age, race, sex, and neighborhood, those who keep a gun in the home (ironically, often for protection) are nearly three times more likely to be murdered in the home--nearly always by a family member or close acquaintance. For every self-defense use of a gun in the home, there are 4 unintentional shootings, 7 criminal assaults or homicides, and 11 attempted or completed suicides.
What I've noticed is... when Americans speculate about the now well-known fact that Canada has less gun violence than its neighbor down south, a lot of people seem to suggest that Canada (and all other non-American countries in the world, for that matter) is somehow innately less violent a country. But doesn't it seem more likely that the simple perception of America being a violent country is enough to make that perception a reality? If the self-fulfilling prophecy applies to individual people, then certainly it could also apply to whole societies. Not to say that people should go around hugging everyone they meet on the street, but I think a society as a whole ridding itself of the belief that "everyone you don't know is dangerous/out to get you" will make a huge difference in this unhealthy paranoia we've built up.
- Yes, the bullet point means we are moving on to the YunJae part. :3
So in the midst of my frantic cramming, I found myself wondering what YunJae would be like if they were characters in a Western soap opera. (I've had a weird day, ok. >_>) And unsurprisingly, I ended up with YunJae as the middle-class couple with love problems: Jaejoong plays the part of the nagging, overbearing wifey/mouthy drunk when he's had one too many Spritzers & Yunho is the overworked lawyer-husband/pitiful target of Jae's passive-aggressive snippiness. And YooSuMin would be the musicians who live in a studio on the floor directly above, and the three of them can hear every word of their arguments. :D
...And all of that sounds more like a dark sitcom rather than a soap, but hey, I'm flexible. 8D
