Right

Firstfallen was right – Season of the Witch is bad.  I think it was made on a budget of whatever people had in their pockets.  The second half was actually better than the first half and more what I thought the entire movie was going to be about.  My word but the opening battle scenes were the worst.  Oops, my bad – battle scenes?  lol~  Stumbling about in the sand swing the sword at staged moments scenes were the worst.

Though it wasn’t a total waste of time.  I managed to finish a piece of fanfiction while watching it.  I just needed to write the final scene  but I’ve been distracted with another fiction I’m writing.  Now I just have to wait for my beta to return it so I can up load it and not feel bad about working on the other pieces.

Grammar exam on Wednesday.   Not a strength.  I can tell someone what a grammatical aspect is but battle to identify them in examples.  And the exam is two hours, not a lot of time when I have to identify and then test what ever it is I have to look for.  Maybe there will only be two or three in the exam – eep!

I now have a desk.  I have filled it with next semester course books, I have topped it with this semester course books as well as a variety of pencil/pen holders.  Tomorrow I will be putting up my phonetic table, vowel chart and year planner.  I have missed my year planner.  The first half of the year planner will be quite blank but the latter half is likely to make up for it.

Went to see Fast and Furious 5 – wow, what a lot of crashing.  Some of them were very impressive.  I saw a bunch of previews that looked rather cool such as X-men First Class, Pirate of the Caribbean and Season of the Witch.  I really hope X-men is not in 3D, or at least available for viewing in 2D.  Unlike Thor – stoopid 3D ruins everything.

I shall now go eat some awesome smelling dinner.

Manga Madness

May 12, 2011 at 18:43 (Uncategorized)

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a shounen manga reader but occasionally I’ll chick a random title just to see what’s out there – I might be missing something good.  I am often surprised at how many sports manga there are – cycling, boxing, and they have many chapters.  There are also a number of obscure ones.  For example:

Usotsuki Lily – Hinata Saotome is suddenly asked out by En Shinohara, a gorgeous boy in her grade. What she doesn’t know, though, is that his hobby is cross-dressing! En has always hated men, and whenever he sees his own reflection, he punches out whatever is doing the reflecting (windows, mirrors…). To combat this hatred, he dresses up as a girl. Hinata decides to go out with him anyway, despite his weird hobby.

To me, he has more than a ‘weird hobby’, I would say he has a serious psychological problem.  All I can say is that shoujo readers are weird.

Flag the World

May 10, 2011 at 09:53 (Uncategorized)

Often while waiting for the kettle to boil, I’ll study the world of flags poster on the kitchen wall at work.  It reminds of school and drawing the country flag.  Though I haven’t actually drawn the current SA flag but I think it would be pretty easy.  Unlike countries like Mexico and Fiji, they have quite detailed flags and Bhutan has a dragon.  I don’t think I was able to draw a dragon at 8, I can’t draw one at 30.  But I can colour one 😛

Roxette tonight.  I thought it to be much later in the month.  I’m curious to discover how many songs I remember, I was a huge fan as a teen – I listened to them all the time.  Well, whenever I got the chance, didn’t have a personal music system but had MP3 players been around I would have listened to them all the time.  Now I listen to OSTs all the time.

Getting it

May 6, 2011 at 09:31 (Uncategorized)

I’ve been fairly unsuccessful in understanding EWS but yesterday, exactly one week before the exam, I thing I figured it out.  It’s not really what I thought it was and I don’t know that it is but I think I might be able to pass it.  The exam is MCQ so I just need to know the information and check the correct boxes.

Human Rights is a mess though.  Assignment marks went from bad to worse and I don’t know where I’m going wrong.  Words like comments and suggestions are unknown to the assignment marker.  All I get back is a mark on the front page.  So annoying.

But I am glad it’s Friday, I’m strangely tired today.  I should be doing some studying but instead I’m blogging and attempting new manga titles.  So far, there aren’t that many titles that sound interesting.  Though in the mood I’m in, I should really be trying new things.

Yesterday was a painting day but it started as a paining day.  But once the medication kicked in, I painted this:

Trifle!

Now it’s in the kitchen…
