So. I've realized that I've missed some awesome teenage cartoons because I restarted reading some Chase Young x Jack Spicer fanfiction. Back then when the Xiaolin Showdown cartoon aired on T.V., I hadn't even thought of reading any stories of those two together in a romantic relationship. I thought that there was a possibility of them being together after watching some of the episodes where Jack goes gaga for his idol, Chase Young. I thought Jack was so cute being all fangirly with the star that shines in his eyes. I believe Jack to be an American otaku or somewhat like an otaku. Jack is smart. He can act stupid but I believe he is such a smart kid. It is just that many things grab his attention (like Chase) and he just can't stay on his stronger points like his bots or machinery. He could have done things that could show the world what he was capable of creating.
I am a bit disappointed with the lack of interesting stories out there with this pairing. I read a few fanfiction back then and I thought those were better then the stories that are created nowadays. I mean Jack can be an emo kid and I can see that as a possibility. It's possible that he could be suicidal. It is also possible that he can become stronger. What I'm trying to say is that, right now, at this moment, I would rather read a story that has a plot where there is a "possibility" that can be possible for the character themselves. Some kind of plot that involves a scenario where it can be plausible for so and so character...possible that it can almost seem realistic for the character and it's personality.....do you get what I mean? I'm trying to make sense of what I'm feeling. It's harder for me to create the right sentences at this time of night. Oh and of course a well written story is truly awesome. Also, I wish some authors aren't afraid to make those scenes more graphic. Broaden your strengths people! Just a few words of encouragement done my way and happy mother's day.
I have saved these two journals because it reminds me of who I was. It reminds me how much I have grown and matured. It shows how much I've changed. I have saved these two journals because I am afraid to forget who I was, how innocent I was or more so. It's quite fun to reread what I had written back then.
Here is my latest drawing posted on my deviantart.
- Fan art of Harry Potter age:18 (my version)
I finished the last book of the Harry Potter series (HP 7 : Deathly Hallows)
and I was glade that I was not disappointed with the story like I thought I
would be. Those who had read the story before me, told me that it would
disappoint me because they seem to not like it as much. It was always
"Oh she (J.K. Rowling) should have done this" or "done that," but I think
everything is good as it is.
I've waited to finish reading the whole series just because I didn't want
to finish it. I didn't want Harry to go away. So now I'm a bit sad that, that
part of the wizarding fantasy world will disappear. It was a great world full
of creativity and fantasy. Unlike Twilight which has jacked up many of the
fantasy creatures and ripped them apart to create a whole new superior
thing (the author made HER werewolves into shape-shifters!
I mean come on!).
A couple of my friends and I started on a conversation about Twilight and
how it is not the next Harry Potter or that the author of the Twilight series
(Stephenie....something) is the next Rowling. I've heard from many
females (oddly, mostly from those younger than I am) that Twilight is like
the next Harry Potter, which I think is laughable. I can rant all night about
this but right now I'd like to head to bed. Night everyone!
My morning did not start off on a good note and everything after that was affected by it. It was like falling dominoes knocking down one after the other. A bad event after the next. I thought that even though my morning started off with a huge headache that I would still manage to go through my classes. But I was (almost) deadly mistaken.
In my first class, we had to take a test and a partnered quiz. I thought this was fine and that I'd get through it. I have a good A in that class and so I wasn't too worried when I found out that I had screwed up on the test anyways after I turned it in. I blamed it on my headache. Then we had to partner up for a partner quiz, which I thought that the teacher would go around and quiz us but at that time I had been hopeful of that type of situation to happen. Yet I got a surprise and a nervous attack after I found out that we had to be quizzed in FRONT of the WHOLE CLASS! I wasn't freaking out at first but after watching the other students go up and taking the oral quiz my nerves built up. I was the person that was to describe the word that was displayed on the board and I didn't want to mess it up and make her (my partner) seem stupid, embarrassed or whatever. We both knew our words and definitions but I was the one that screwed everything up. I got a nervous attack. I felt everyone watching me, listening to whatever I said, whispering behind my back, and I felt...I don't know....pushed....no...more like pressured some how. I forgot the definitions at the last moment when we only had about 3 words left to go to get a full grade. I felt really bad. (We had to figure out the words within 2 mins.) I didn't want to make my partner seem like a fool or that was what I thought. I even felt pressured being with the partner I choose to partner up with. At some parts I felt like she was looking at me like I'm some weirdo because I couldn't explain the definitions to her understanding.
We switched places and got a really good score anyways because she wasn't the one with stage fright and explained this really well so that I'd get to guess the right words correctly. Even though, I still feel like I've just made a fool of myself and my partner in front of the whole class. In the beginning I thought I was ready for all of this. I didn't even feel nervous until it was close to our turn. At the end she went to her seat without even looking at me. I feel like I did something wrong or maybe it's my face. I know that my face does not show much of what I really want to show others. Sometimes people think I'm mad at them or something because of my face lacking facial expressions. I don't know. I just hope she isn't made at me. Even though we just barely got to know each other and I don't want things like this be like what she thinks in the future if we fun into each other.
My headache stayed with me well into the night. My mom used some Chinese remedies on me so I feel better now with a slight nagging headache. I just had to post up a journal because I feel like when I tired to bring it up to my friend or even if I brought it up, they didn't do or say anything that would make me feel like it was ok to be like that. That it was normal and one day you'll change that part of you. I've got the strength to try my hardest to change but I'm still weak to the point where I still need encouragement. I think it's too much to ask so I don't expect anything. That's why I'm trying my hardest to be strong with even the tiniest help along the way.
See I even feel a bit better after typing this up and boosting up myself.
Happy Black Friday!
So it's after Thanksgiving and items in different stores are cut half price! but I didn't get anything. My dad got another flat screen tv and something like a air purifier(?) I don't really know. Last night, Christian and I held a place in line at the San Marcos' Fry's Electronics for 2 hours (or more). I just felt like holding it for my mom because she wanted to make sure she was one of the firsts to get into Fry's and get herself things she wanted. I didn't know what else to get, electronically. I've already have a laptop and I don't think I need to get a new one soon. Maybe when I get into college. I'll get a new laptop by then. That new HP dv5t laptop looks really kool. If that laptop gets cheaper one day, I'll consider getting it.
Lately I've been playing some Tales of the Abyss on the PS2. I think I'm actually pretty good at it. I heard that there is an anime about it. I'll go watch it sometime. It has a pretty good story. So far I've notices that are 2 sets of twins in the game. The main character, Luke, has an evil twin named Asch. The other is uncertain because there is this masked character in the game that could be linked to a weak Ion but I'm not sure if my predictions are correct, yet. I'm still in the middle of the game where nothing makes sense yet it is still pretty interesting.

the comedy, mystery, and of course supernatural anime/ manga series. Summery
There Ciel Phantomhive, a boy, rich and lavished victorian style outfits with a sence of noblety, always in blue (which suits him nicely, I might add). He holds a contract, which is embeded in his left eye, with a demon, Sebastian Michaelis, disguised as a butler. His usual saying/ catchphrase/ pun is "Aku made shitsuji desu (I am a butler to the core" OR "Akuma de shitsuji desu (I am a demon and a butler)". By switching the "ma" from the beginning of the second word to the end of the first, the result is a rather horrible pun. But other than that, he is an awesome cook. I wish I had a butler like his.Cake.Moltenflower.net Sebastian Michaelis Profile
Sebastian's fantastic abilities aren't limited to household skills, either. He can dodge bullets and throw silverware with deadly accuracy. A bullet to the forehead is only a temporary setback, as is nearly getting sliced in half with a chainsaw. His speed and agility is nothing short of inhuman-- which, of course, is fitting, as Sebastian is actually a demon. The gloves on Sebastian's hands conceal a mark on his left hand identical to the one on Ciel's right eye. This mark is the symbol of their contract, and binds Sebastian to obey Ciel's commands.Majin Tantei Nōgami Neuro
is also a comedy, mystery, and supernatural anime/ manga series. Both animes even started in the same year and almost, close to the same month too.Anime News Network Plot Summary
Yako's father was murdered in a locked room. She then meets a man named Neuro Nougami who is a demon from Hell who eats "riddles." He forces Yako to act as a detective so he can solve mysteries. Neuro longs to eat the ultimate mystery.
Not to long ago but long enough to feel like it was last year, I read this in it's manga form. I thought it was pretty good but there was much to do at that time and I was too busy to continue reading it. I eventually forgot about it until I stumbled on it again when I found out that the anime came out. Just today in fact, I found it out today. I like the anime and the manga, now.
But what I really wanted to talk about was how similar these two animes were. More precisely, how similar Sebastian Michaelis and Neuro Nougami are.Similarities
In Majin Tantei Nōgami Neuro, episode 3, Neuro was shot in the eye and since he is a demon he won't die, of course. But than this part baffled and surprised me in how similar demon Neuro is to demon Sebastian. Neuro spit the bullet back out from his mouth just like how Sebastian did when he was shot at, not once but by a group of men. Now I forgot what episode Sebastian got shot. I think it's close to the beginning of the anime. Right now I just can't get over it. You've got to watch it. It's sooo similar is crazy.
I wonder if there are other similarities between these two demons.Similarities #2
Five minutes into Majin Tantei Nōgami Neuro, episode 12, the two main characters sneak into a privatly owned area. There, one guard dog guarded its place. It was going to attack but it got scared because of the warning glare sent by Neuro. This situation also happened in Kuroshitsuji. In page 12 of chapter 18, Sebastian and Ciel investigated a mansion in England. There was about 3 to 4 guard dogs (looked almost like the one that attacked Neuro and Yako) that went for Ciel and his servant. The dogs became scared once Sebastian warned them with this eyes just as Neuro had done.
Why are these two demons from different animes so similar in their actions?
Can they also be the same type of demon?
Ok, I have thought that it is BECAUSE they are demons, other animals are scared of them naturally as they seem to be at the top of the food chain (so to speak).
(I have not restarted reading the Majin Tantei Nogami Neuro manga but I will once I've finished watching the anime. The last time I remembered reading it, I think the manga is a bit different from the anime.)
Entry edited: November 24, 2008
In the afternoon on the 22nd of November at 4:00 pm, I went to my appointment to have a check up on my teethes. I find out that the one my mom had found me was a regular dentist. This dentist told me that he was the exhibitioner(?) or the main operator of my teeth health treatments. I was told that I was suppose to go to this sort of dentist before I got my braces. But you see I am finished with my treatment of straitening my teeth. So there is no use in consulting with this dentist and it's fine if I went to my Orthodontist first but I feel that I might have been taken advantage of and cheated in paying more than the fair price. You see the "main operator" dentist was suppose to tell the Orthodontist what the condition of my teeth is so that the Orthodontist can estimate a fair price and initiate better treatment. Since I need to get my wisdom teethes pulled out, the Orthodontist would need to consult with the "main" doctor to have he or she approve of which surgeon would be best to operate on my mouth. Is this really true?
I'm not knowledgeable with this kind of field because I haven't been to a dentist in almost a year. I've been telling my mom that I should see a dentist to check on the condition my teethes are in but she doesn't want to take me. She doesn't trust dentist because she thinks they would destroy my teeth on purpose so that they'd get more money. I don't know what to think about anymore. Her beliefs annoy me most.
I think I would have enjoyed the movie if there weren't some group of screaming Edward fan girls sitting behind me. I was about to kick some ass if this girl, who was sitting behind me, hits my chair once more. Such annoying little girls. I mean come on it's just Cedric...I mean an actor who is playing Edward. Edward who is suppose be every girls fantasy of a romantic heart throb...I guess. The actor played the role just fine...in that movie.
Last night, the movie was...........alright. I mean, Twilight was alright because I've read the book and I can criticize all I want but the overall rate for the movie is that I thought it was pretty good. It had all the aspects a movie could have: action, passion, romance, story, etc. The romance came and went too quickly. They acted it out in scene segments that looked like it was just as it was, a couple of scenes of romance. First there was action and story, then all of a sudden the "I love yous" and the "I can't live without yous" come out. Right when that starts, it ends and goes into the action sequences. I think the movie just made the story seem faster. When reading the book I had imagined that everything was calm, smooth, and elegant.
Speaking about elegance, I thought Edward's personality and actor was bit too forceful. I mean, I like the actor himself. He's a pretty good actor and just at the age of 22 too. But I still see him as the one who played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter's fourth movie (where he, sadly, dies). I guess playing the role of Edward Cullen was the best for him because his role in Harry Potter ended in just one movie/ book.
So it's Thursday and I still haven't made up my runs yet but oh well. Next week we'll have NO SCHOOL! YAY. Finally we get a break. Oh, but not just yet. My mother told me that I'll be seeing a surgeon about getting my wisdom teeth taken out this Saturday. Great, now I'll have fish cheeks all week if I'm getting my wisdom teeth surgically removed. I imagine that it will hurt immensely. That will be my worst day of the years.
Well today we had an assembly in the gym and it was the trustworthy video that all of us kids had to watch every single year. I like the presentation but I think last year was better. It still had that meaningful meaning to it and that educational stuff too so it was pretty good. I hope underlings start to learn not to bully or treat people like how they'd want to be treated.
I messed up on my shirt in Printing and Graphics class. Mr. L said he'd give me another try since I tried doing it today and noticed that I made a mistake. He's a cool old man.
Tonight, I have a load of homework to do. I'm a procrastinator and right now. I really don't feel like starting anything at the moment. I'll just read some fanfiction about Tsuna and Mukuro from Katekyo Hitman Reborn.
Today was an average every day routine. I woke up at 6:45 this morning which is alright. I usually wake up a little bit earlier but it's not unusual to wake up later either. So anyways I started to get ready for school. My illness is almost gone. I still have the sniffles and the coughing but it's not so bad. I can still exercises. I made it to school just in time. Every thing went along fine with the school schedule and teacher's agenda. Nothing was out of the ordinary.
At lunch, my friends and I discussed about what we should do over the weekend and the holiday break. So now on Friday we are going to watch Twilight, a new teen hit movie that everyone has been talking about (well mainly the girls). I'm up for going to watch it if i was either invited or if everyone was going as a group. Originally I wasn't going to go watch it because I didn't really like who they choose for the characters. Don't get me wrong, the actors/ actresses are great but I had imagined the characters differently but w/e. It doesn't matter now. Now I just want to see if the movie is good and worthwhile to see.
I'm going with a group of friends, including my boyfriend, to go watch the movie, Twilight, on Friday when we get to have our minimum day, where school gets out at noon. It's a maybe right now but I think the time we'll be watching it is at 2:45 pm.
I'll post a poll later to rate the movie.
In the afternoon I got my hair trimmed...and I don't really really like how the style much. -__-
Is there a good way to describe what you want your hair to look like to someone who is about to cut it?
