1) Please be considerate of the hours
2) I've been getting weird e-mails concerning downloads and bandwidth
3) If you find any "dead" links, please tell me! I've tampered with the links previously but they should all be live now! I'm also known to put files under the wrong title, please tell me of those too! If there's no hyperlink, then I'm still in the process of making it.
4) If there are any learning points or culture-oids (as I'd like to call it) that you'd like to learn more about please leave a memo too~! I am always in need of ideas for powerpoints.
5) The tables are pretty big so I LJ cut the whole thing since it's taking up a lot of scroll space which annoys me. No I haven't removed them XD
^^^^^^^^^^^PRACTICING JAPANESE MUST READS!^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Anyway, I'm only here to update a few links. The ratio of me being on a website is directly related to the the websites tendency of logging me out. As such, I typically am found in and around Tumblr and Fanfiction (yes, they have a new interface that doesn't log you out) Wow.
If you're on tumblr you probably recognize me from posting lengthy character analyses on KHReborn! and if you're a constant resident of the KHR fanfiction world and have been for a few years now, you'll know me as "Hey! It's that writer who finally got off her lazy bum to finish her stories!"
Basically I'm just here to update links and selfish promotion.
- ☯ Mood ☯: bored
That, and the fact that I really don't know what to say at the moment. With a new and ready-to-go Adobe X Pro installed on my computer, I shouldn't be having any more converting issues, now if I can just get my lazily busy college bum on the job. XD
Going home for the 3day weekend~! Sure it's a 5 hour drive (10 roundtrip) but I can handle it. Besides, I can always use the time to study for my Math midterm and Chemistry quiz.
Fun times. I keep telling myself that I will look back on this week and laugh. Probably around December. Yeah...
LyricsTranslate.com seems to have found me a new friend. I only realize in hindsight that she's e-mailed me at least 3 times, but I only replied to the last one. Sure it was in Chinese, but the interface was German and I sorta kinda put it in my "aahhh I'll read it later" list. Cutely enough, she needs help with Spanish so I can do my little bit of linguistic magic there =)
I need to take Chinese as a class. Probably going to take 1A instead of 1 because I can speak as well as a native but can't read too much. Dx Had a chat with the Chinese 1A professor today and she told me that I'd probably have to wait until next year's fall quarter.... so I'll probably stick to Italian and stash in a Japanese class somewhere in there in the meanwhile.
GOD I NEED FORMAL CLASSES. Self learning doesn't cut it. In fact it bothers meeeeee (TTATT) [
No but it's more of the fact that even with self-learning, you can only learn so much. and THEN there is that freakin' barrier. Like earlier this week we learned an Italian word in context.
FIDANZA: (lit.) engaged
But this word is used to describe just about every couple that's been dating for at least 3 months or so. So if you and your boyfriend are going steady and people use that to describe you..... No, it does NOT mean that you will find a ring on your finger but just the fact that you guys are going pretty steady. Which amuses me because that means (in the spoken word) that you'd be going from one engagement to another if you breakup.
Ahhh, sweet words in cultural context. Yummy.

Only ones I can look forward to are November 11th and 24th~27th weekend.
Granted I won't be able to meet my parents until the 25th at the latest because my mother's coming back from Taiwan then. But I can wait, plus she'll have news on my favorite cousins!
And I still have 2 more midterms. Granted Italian isn't TOO hard
Looking forward to November 22, which
is when my pre-ordered limited edition copy of
Hetalia: Paint it White! will be shipping =)
I'm also quite happy that my mom agreed to let me
spend money on getting Adobe X Pro. I can have total
control over what doc files I can turn into a PDF~
No more middle-man online programs!
A group of JAC (Japanese Anime Club) members and myself sorta kinda branched off to create the Jpop Dance group (

Was jolted out of bed yesterday? Night before yesterday? by a rogue fire alarm. No, we learned soon after, it wasn't a fire drill (
Oh and reidluver, I updated the worksheets and made some flashcard sets for Italian that I thought you may like since I prepped them for my Italian quiz. I originally set it on private so I wouldn't get lag when I was studying, but we don't need it too much at the moment, since we'll be covering a new section tomorrow. I PM'd the link to ya~ <3
I have another Alzheimer's awareness club meeting today. I really want to go into research and public speaking via the group. I think it's a nice approach to the problem. College is so big, I still kind of have no idea where to start, haha.
Speaking of which, I need more friends.
Clarification: More friends who understand the idea of good, clean, fun. I had so many such friends in high school. Some of my new college peeps fit the "party in college" stereotype too well and it's annoying to have to close my door and blast music to cancel out the noise just to study (although I do appreciate the occasional music that flares up every now and then). I don't know if I'm happy or not, being in a single.
Well, I do know that it gives me a nice peace of mind, so I'll go with quite happy. =)'
Ciao a tutti~

Did I mention I'm learning Italian? No? Well, now you know (:D)
Every time I see a fanfiction notice in my e-mail inbox I feel so BAD. (OAO) People always favorite or put me on alert and I'm just sitting there going "aw crap, I still have that unfinished chapter on Word" but story writing for me is extremely time consuming. (I've also fallen behind on reading KHR, which is primarily my fanfiction foundation for TRAT and CM) I have no idea how people manage to crank out chapter after chapter. I think it may be something to do with the mindset of "if I plan on posting it better be a good 13+ page masterpiece rather than 4 page crap", but I think some of my readers appreciate it... I hope. DX
Fun trivia on Fanfictions about me:
- The minimum page goal I set for Clam's Much is 10
- The minimum page goal I set for To Reach Across time is 13
- Oneshot's minimum page goal is 6
Ciao a tutti~!

Basic "outside-of-work" things on the list include:
- updating LJ bi-daily
- working on Japanese powerpoints & worksheets
- writing up on fanfictions
in other news.... I am quite saddened when it comes to Tokyopop N.A. division closing down. I hope other groups or something will buy their licenses/titles because they have some good stuff (
Despite the fact that I go to sleep between 10-11pm every weekday college night, I'm subtly suspicious that I barely hit REM level of sleep.It's the only way that I can hear my alarm at like... what? .... 6, 7, 8 am? (depending on what day is). The weather here at LA's hotter than Norcal but there's always a really cold draft between 6pm-11am.
Erm what else? I'm taking Italian but DANG is it hard because I know Spanish XDDD "Come ti chiami?" (What's your name? inf.) becomes "Como te chiames?" And I have trouble pronouncing the "g" like in "orologio" (clock) I always tend to say it the Spanish way.
I'm suddenly feeling very Bianchi today~ XD

Request translation from YouTuber: amitetara ===> Music Video
1) The romaji lyrics are what I picked up by ear after listening to it for many many many times
not that I minded since I liked the song
2) I translated this with the my self-taught Japanese and had so much AMAZING help from Adrienne (You are the best!). If you see errors, please correct us, we do not wish to be eternally in the dark.
That and the fact that next year, I may finally get formal classes which makes me so happy =D
3) * we kept a half-translation since there were oddball words combos we couldn't figure out
*** we had difficulty translating these lines so I omitted them in the translation
