I've come to the conclusion that Twitter can make the best of us sound like uninteresting a*sholes, not to mention the rest of us humans. As with LiveJournal, it makes me wonder if people continue to follow me because they don't want to offend me.

As for Google+, there's a reason why I don't like using Facebook. Pinning everything to one online identity? Unless there's a way to lock things down so that I'm the only one with access, no thanks.

I also realized that my mom uses Facebook a lot more than I do. She's asked my brother if one of his friends has one. She asked our badminton couch if he had one. She asks a lot of random people she knows if they have a Facebook, while I'm pretty much still in the MSN era of things. Sometimes e-mail if I don't like you. People ask 'do you have a Facebook' all the time, when the question is actually 'can I add you on Facebook'. Why can't people just say what they mean? Life would be a lot simpler.

So basically, I don't like Google+ and Facebook, and I think Google is evil. I mean, who says they're not evil unless they actually are? It's not a bad thing, being kind of evil, but it's still evil.

I watched The Social Network for a homework assignment. There were seven movies to chose from, but this was the only movie I wanted to watch but never did. We had to write either an essay on our feelings or a poem for the assignment. I chose to write the poem because I only had a few hours, but I used all the time I had to finish it anyway. At first I thought the movie was exciting and interesting, but I wasn't thinking too deeply into it. Then I wrote that poem and suddenly there was a lot of emotions invested into the process and also, self-loathing, but that's another matter entirely.

In which I try to talk about the movie but fail because my thoughts grew too complicated and I gave up midway. )

ComicCon gave us news on Avatar: Legend of Korra, which is being called The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra, wtf that makes no f*cking sense you idiots. I'm blaming the blue furries, because the avatar is the focus of the series, the last airbender was Aang and he's not even the last airbender anymore so how do you call a series that unless they're calling the next series Legend of Korra: The Next Avatar, which would be even more stupid. URGH. But aside from the title, OMG SO EXCITED. It's beautiful and I want to kill anyone who thinks girls have to have girly figures to be girls because Korra is awesome and female and no one gets to take our female adventure series main character away.

I'm supposed to be writing but my notes for this one sort of looks like this for now: A and B somewhere. B finds out. Shit happens. C visits A. A and C have fun. C talks to B. A and B talk some more. I don't even remember what I was thinking when I wrote most of that, so I might not follow it at all, but damn. Stepping back, it's so easy to find everything I write so boring.

LJ has been gone the past few days, and it's just as distracting as it is when it's alive and well. I also read Watchmen during, and I have thoughts on that too, but mostly just that it was a heavy read. I'm not used to the American format for comics, and it took me a long while to finally be able to tell who's who. Once I could tell what was going on, it got much easier, and it's a very different experience from other medias, so I might be trying this sometime again. All in all a positive experience.

Heading towards the airport in four hours. Possibly my last trip to Japan for a long while, until...I don't know, until I have a better reason to go there, I suppose. I have a lot I want to talk about, but I can't seem to get out the words. Maybe when I get back.

Good luck to me, I guess. I do hope to have fun, at the very least.

Chinese New Years is over! And by over, I mean people are going back to work and I have to get busy too even though school hasn't started yet. It was equally boring and hectic as usual, meeting relatives and eating and waiting and all that (plus more eating). Also, family trips! I always feel so lazy after Chinese New Years. Boredom is was awesome.

I'm lucky to have a very interesting family. Drama aside, it's cool to have twenty relatives eating dinner in the same room every year :D

Because I am lazy but wanted to say these anyway, fandom rant in bullet points: Yasu, Shounen Club Premium, an old Jrs. video, Yamapi, NEWS and HSJ; in that order. )

Such a weird ending. Oh well. Happy Chinese New Years, rabbits beware! :p

I totally debated for a while which icon to use first this year, and decided it just had to be Digimon. Saw the fireworks from the roof this year, though it was mostly covered in smoke. Also bought some ice-cream in attempt to freeze myself. ♥

I need to make a few of my own icons, but before that, HI NEW ICON EVERYONE USES. I thereby proclaim myself pretty much an Avatar fangirl.

After watching cartoons (FOSTER'S HOME FOR IMAGINARY FRIENDS!), I went back to the j-poppy places a bit. And. I LOVE SHOUNEN CLUB PREMIUM. Especially when Kanjani8 goes on ♥♥ Song rant beneath. Plus tinsy bit of shippy stuff. )

Merry Christmas and happy holidays, I suppose ♥ (Don't really celebrate that holiday here, but hey it's still a joyous time for all.) Life is too short to be all sad and mopey. MUST CELEBRATE ALL I CAN!! xDDD Even though my celebrating means me eating till my stomach hurts, and feeling satisfied from that. HEE. TURKEY!

So, yesterday was the last night I slept in this room I'm in right now. Moved my mattress today, so I'd be going over to sleep tonight.

The ten to twenty minute drive distance is barely a distance to some people, even in a city as this one. But I've lived here for nineteen years -- this is home. That place is what will be home, later, but not now. Not for quite a while yet.

I never claimed to be good with words so I'd use a phrase I've heard before.

I'd be staring at an unfamiliar ceiling tonight.

I'm trying to catch up with everything, but there's way too much for me to read. Plus I applied for summer courses, which should start soon as long as I'm lucky enough to get in. I hope. Anyway, back from a seven day trip to Tokyo. Probably surprisingly to some people, I did no shopping.

Walked around a lot. I killed my left foot, but otherwise had a lot of fun. I love old cities! And also, the further away you are from a station, the less likely you are to be attacked by cigarette smoke bombs. Gah I hate that smell.

Probably won't be going to Tokyo for a long while. I've gone there quite a few times since a kid, since my grandma has a house there. But there's really nothing to see if you don't like shopping (and I really kinda don't), plus the crazy amount of people walking in and out of the train stations and shopping areas scare me. Sorry, can't stand people waves. I did recall quite a few fading memories though, which is always fun.

Also went to Tokyo Disneyland on the day before a discount, which meant the lines nearly always take less than ten minutes, while usually we just go directly on. A few times, we aren't waiting for the people in front of us, but are instead waiting for more people to come from behind us. School kids who come to Disneyland after school have too much time on their hands.

I'm too lazy to remember what else is there, but all in all it's an okay trip. Tiring and slightly annoying at parts (bleh my brother should just travel alone and my sister is mostly alright until she starts whining).

In Kansai International Airport. Taking advantage of their free Internet :)

Been in Kansai for the last five days - had a lot of fun. The worst thing about Japan is I can't stop spending money. Everything is either ridiculously cute or pretty or shiny!! And impossibly expensive. I'm utterly broke, and I didn't even buy that much! Best thing is probably the air. Perfect temperature (around 10 celcius, I think) and little pollution. So CLEAN. Compared to Taiwan, anyway.

Boarding the plane in a little more than an hour. Then a three hour flight plus a half an hour drive and it's home sweet home (plus a hot and humid climate). I miss my bed! The hotel rooms and beds are so tiny.

I've been on my feet for about ten hours each day. Walking from train station to bus stop to temple to shopping center, standing on trains and buses and everywhere else. Starting from the third day, my feet never recovered...And I'm going to a dancing camp sort of thing tomorrow. SO DEAD.

After that camp, I'd be uploading photos. And maybe writing a report on this trip. Hopefully. xD

I have no idea what's happening right now. LJ-wise, anyway. Three days without Internet, and I survived! There should be icons saying "I survived [insert number] days without Internet!". I would be using it whenever I travel, lol.

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!! To anyone that celebrates it, and to those that vaguely know about it.

Just got home and took a nice long bath, so I'm all relaxed right now. Every Chinese New Year, we travel to my grandmother's house and our entire family gathers there. This means my dad and four of his siblings, excluding one of his sisters because she's married. Ha, Chinese New Year is a very traditional holiday, and it's pointless to argue with three thousand years of Chinese history. But another of his sisters (they're twins too, lol) comes back every year because she lives in the US with her husband (= American), and the husband doesn't always come, but she brings my little cousin over. So this year, it's 10 adults (aka my dad's generation and above) and 8 kids.

We do the same things every year, but it's so boring it's sorta relaxing. Hard to explain, but being able to sit around and do nothing once in a while feels nice. Visiting graves (a very Asian thing to do?), eating a large dinner, deciding who sits which car when we try to move 18 people...It's fun ;)

I'm too lazy to think about it now. But in the end I'm just glad to be back home. ^___^
