Okay, this as a dumb yet informative announcement:

I honestly learn more kanji from trying to parse ridiculously cute/well-drawn/deliciously aaaangsty/EFFYESMYOTP j-fen fancomics than I do, from, y'know a decently organized course of study. Which is sad, but probably not that surprising. .__.

On that note:

Uki, my S80 fan-love, why on earth do you use the more obscure kanji for relatively common words? I spent 5 minutes staring at one panel, until I made the discovery that... this was an alternate for 戦い. Acceptable because there are definite nuances there (I think 闘い is more figurative? Against nature, against rivals, whereas 戦い seems to be actual war/fighting, but don't take my word for it) but I nearly beat my head against the wall when I found out, mostly because, FML, I already knew it from 戦闘. Orz. And then there was the fiasco with 所為, which confused me to no end: I tried to think about it from the Chinese, failed miserably, was on the verge of reaching for a dictionary when I hit it after going through all the readings in my head. (It's "sei," if you're wondering. Used in the sentence, "Omae no sei ja ne-." After, y'know what looks to be a first kill sort of situation. Yes I am dumb like a brick. D|)

Brrr I cannot believe that school starts so soon.

SO. T-the concert was unspeakably awesome, she seems so incredibly nice in person and also hearing her talk about each of the songs was like. FWAAAAH ♥ and the first of the new album songs she did? "Antebellum" aaahhh. We got to see the co-writer for that, Alex Wong, who is also rather multi-talented-ish and provided the male vocals in that tract, I think. (Also a NorCal guy originally, who moved to Brooklyn? I think.)

I now own a copy of Inland Territory with Vienna Teng's signature. :DDD


though I was a super awkward fan as expected but. AHHHHHH ♥ ♥ ♥

So apparently, trying to talk classmates into remembering why they love their (my, our) major sparks a renewed sense of love for the subject. (Despite the considerable pain of reading spectrograms, I might add.)

It seems that spending 15 minutes relaying the discussion wax_feathers and I had about voice onset time in Korean will do that to a person. Waaaah, I've retrieved that feeling of having the best major ever. <333333 (Am now also contemplating putting up a sign declaring my room to be a "Refuge of Rhoticity," since, y'know, Californian Standard in the midst of Bostonian r-dropping, not to mention the application of the Beijing retroflex lateral diminutive amongst all these Taiwanese-American kids. I mean. I love you guys. xD)

I also now have a button thingy that says "I ♥ lɪŋgwɪstɪks," rightfully won through IPA bingo, bwahahah.

If you can't find me on chat applications these days, it is likely because of practices for Pan-Asian Cultural show + leftover midterms. Sob.

News at 10: I HATE FINALS.

...This ends your periodic broadcast. |D

[uh guys if I end up drawing a Matthew+Hector doujin, will you all like. Disown me? orz.]

Current fandom-y things!

Detective Conan/Magic Kaito (...thank you ever so much, Mera. OTL)
Jyuken Sentai Gekiranger (shut up shut up shut up! :<)
Fire Emblem 7 (replays always steal my heart)
One Piece (I am three chapters behind! But OP is my forever fandom, and I've been pretty good at keeping up with recent PLOT EVENTS.)
Maoh (...okay, it has Ohno and I am apparently kinda an Arashi fangirl. Just a little.)
Axis Powers Hetalia (...uh in bad taste? Or just, y'know, everything I've wanted since we started craaazy Bismarck ships in AP Euro)

This just in: rushing to finish papers the day they are due makes people hungry. And squinty from staring at words for too long. :(

Also the squirrels on this campus have seriously like, become more boldly maniacal. I EXPECT YOU TO MOVE OFF THE SIDEWALK WHEN I GET CLOSER not like. Stay there, sob sob. Small friiightening animals.

We've also suffered a lot of SUPRAIZ rain this week, which generally makes me unhappy as then things are wet. I totally almost slipped and died twice on the way to breakfast, which for me is like 50 feet from my dorm exit.

Otherwise life is okay! And I think, sadly, I will be caught up on Supernatural soon. The power of marathons and Jensen Ackles' cheekbones, I tell you.

Uhhh pre~tty sure everyone already knows that I am back from China, so this is now a LEAVING FOR THE EAST COAST post. Lololol at the idea of "regular updates."

On the short list of things I will miss includes: PEOPLE, proper sunshine, wide streets, desert plants, real food, and frozen yogurt places.


Hope I don't crash, guys! Dx (Or start adopting STYLISTIC CHANGES~~ from all the Shakespeare and poetry that I have assigned this semester, orz.) Now for a near-future full of moving things, unpacking, and begging teachers in the Chinese department to let me take the (FULL) CHN 203 class!

Guys, guys.

Who among you are going to AX this year.

[dies of envy and. general death aauuuugh]



...the saddest part is that, instead of wanting to gush over him for a properly fangirlish role, I would instead have been like,

あのっ... モモタロスの声で少しおっしゃていただけますんか? [.//////.] He got an award for it, okay! muuuu.

Or whatever the politeness level is supposed to be between seiyuu and faaaan. >>

I have not updated in a very very long time xD

gratuitous icon post, also an admission that I am occasionally too skilled at procrastination.

(cheeeemistry what chemistry?)

(also, s-sob i thought power rangers was the end of my association with tokusatsu/sentai. it wasn't.)
