I just changed my layout, and all by myself! haha, I looked up all these tutorials for different things, found a pretty plain layout code on an lj comm and messed around with the css code box. Wasn't as bad as I thought! Now I won't try to pester friends about hacking into my account to change my layout for me.

I feel like I should backtrack on what I've been doing with my life. That'll have to wait yet again, hopefully until only tomorrow. I'm undergoing some revamping of everything. hehe, I'm bored with all my online accounts. I just feel like I've been too mediocre with stuff, so it's time to learn some new skills and be consistent. It's probably going to end up being one of my resolutions for the new year.

I really cherish this journal. Every day that passes, I'm reminded that I'm neglecting to update this thing. It could be so simple, yet I'm too lazy to upload a few pictures and share my thoughts. Most times I need new things to motivate me.

If I get tired of my itunes playlist, I'll avoid using my computer altogether sometimes.
When I get bored with my lj layout, I neglect posting.
When my room's disorganized and messy, it affects my motivation to do homework.
(it's how I roll :/)

It's weird, because I never used to like change much. I loved routine. In some aspects, I still do, but I think alot of it changed because of how I live now. Since college, I don't really have a permanent home. I lived in a dorm last year; live in an apartment owned by the university now; and I plan to get a house with Gwyn next year. My current schedule back in Charlotte's ever-changing and busy, and spontaneous. Never thought I'd like that, but right now I do.

I've put my plans on getting a job in full swing. My work-study job in the library isn't doing much of anything. As a full-time college student with a 20hr/2 wk job, I'm eligible for a max of $200 in food stamps each month. That really comes in handy when living with 3 other roomies who are as short of money as I am.

I actually took my sweet old time on a resume based on my culinary experiences and gave them to a few bakeries. One of them was an authentic French bakery in a hipster part of Charlotte called Amelie's Bakery. I ADORED the place. It was the only original bakery I'd ever physically visited aside from the awesome ones you see in magazines and cookbooks. Unfortunately, the place looked over staffed, and the dress of the staff was very informal and laid back. It was a turn off. I don't really want to work there anymore.

I tried a bread bakery and another ritzy one uptown, but no callback yet. Gave up on the bakeries and applied for a cookware store in South Park mall, where an insanely beautiful creature named James worked. Apparently, they'd already hired two more people just that morning. Uh-huh, yeah, I'm gonna believe that one. >.>

Applied at Best Buy and Target the other day, called and was told to check again after January (*heavy sigh*), and applied for 4 locations at Harris Teeter online. I'm calling them tomorrow. PLEASE GOD LET ME HAVE THIS ONE ;_;

So yeah, uh huh, Gwyn came back with me to Charlotte after Thanksgiving break. Things went well and she's staying with me for the rest of this academic year, I believe xD. We both want to get jobs and save up for the future ahead. Hopefully, by this summer I'll have a job, which'll be just the excuse to stay in Charlotte and put in a deposit for a house for rent. Houses for rent are ridiculously reasonable in NC. It's crazy. A 4-bedroom house split between four people would be as less as $250 a person. And it may include some scrumptious hardwood floors! *0*

So basically, I have big plans, even bigger dreams. Though I've been in my room all day today, even got up super late, I'm very happy with life right now. Maybe it's also because it seems the kpop realm is doing so many boombastic things to me I just want to shake, cry, thrash, and crash.

♦ I mean, dbsk's technically back (with just Changmin and Yunho), but still. I just saw the teasers for their comeback in Jan. 5 and I can't even. . .

Photobucket
CAN YOU EVEN COMPUTE AFTER THIS?!?!
PLAY THAT SWEET BISCUIT WITH SOME MUSIC, YO, AND WATCH THIS GIF! :Q____

Photobucket
(no really, it is, lol)

When I watched the teaser, I heard the familiarity of the dbsk I always loved and miss, and if I think about how all of 5 of them could've been in this, I really could cry. I don't think people understand when I tell them about a Korean pop sensation called Dong Bang Shin Ki. These boys freakin impacted my whole life! I was so proud of them; loved how close they were. Seeing them broken up like this really hurts. Even after things have been kind of resolved between JYJ and Homin, I don't think it's hitting me until now, until after homin's coming back with all these fierce and powerful photoshoots, and all these fierce and powerful teasers, and this fierce and powerful song.

DBSK was my first love ♥ My first boyfriend. The boyfriend who died unexpectedly and left me with alot of questions and bittersweet memories, then came back as a friendly ghost to stay by my side, while in the back of my mind, I'm knowing it won't be the same.

But what bothers me most is not knowing what they're feeling about all of this. If I knew they were all happy, I wouldn't care whether they split or not. That's all I want to know. :3

♦ And then GD&TOP popped up with their jammin album and mv. And Knock Out's gonna be the next mv.

♦ And Big Bang's gonna have an album released soon, whenever that is

♦ And 2PM's still hotsaucing it with everything they do

♦ And I 2NE1's on fire with all their mv releases this year (all of them eyepoppin and bootybumpin)

♦ And I feel like Taeyang's gonna blow up in America soon. That's my prediction. That anticipation has me bubbling up like a heavily carbonated soda, man

Wow, I need to go to bed. It's 4am.
On Monday, Gwyn picked Stasha and me up to stay the night. We watched Inception. I saw it for the first time, and it was crazy. I lived it. SO VERY GREAT. And crazy. <3 We also went to McDonalds for a good hour, talkin it up about everything. Well, mostly boys. And it got on some pretty deep levels, some sexy levels. lol
The next morning, we got up and dressed to go to the mall.

Gwyn chillin on a bench outside the mall before the old creeper sitting across from us
asked for her age and if she had a boyfriend. I mean, really man? Ugh. I'm glad we were there to rescue her!! jk jk, I'm sure she'd have been perfectly fine without us. :p

Rockin' the Pinkage wigs. <333333

a few more pics & the rest of meh entry here ♥ )

I had to do it.
I had to reformat my computer. -__-
But I hadn't failed in the process like I've previously done the last few times I had to reinstall. I actually backed up everything I needed.
Thank GOD!my laptop was functional enough for backing up to be possible, otherwise I would have been shaking and crying in the corner of my room, making dents and scratches in the walls, and scaring my peers at work with my more-prominant-than-usual eyebags and coon circles.

:D
But now I'm refreshed! I was off today, so I got up when I wanted and continued the reinstallation, vacuumed the apartment, got chinese food with Shan. Today was pretty glorius.

It became even more so when we got back. Definitely not because there was a surprise apt. inspection and my room was locked out (it's part of their procedure to lock your room door after inspection when you're not at home, for unknown reasons >.>), but because when I went to the front desk to get someone to let me back into my room, I found out my package had come in.

That's right folks! The Pinkage wig I ordered off of Ebay on October 17th came in today! I don't think I mentioned it at all, but yeah. That's what I did.
I tried it on and it's GAHJUSS!!! It's thick and luscious, and totally worth my money. It's too fun to wear, and you can do so much with it!

Photobucket

I must post pics of my wearing it. Trust me, I took too many :p. It shipped out on Oct. 18th and came in on Nov. 1st. So actually, whoever was working the mail at the front desk, never put a slip in my mailbox telling me the package came in, so it came in earlier than I thought. :pppp

---HAHAHA! I'm in the library again. Working. And two guys come in while another's leaving out. They do their man-shakes and then one guys says to guyleavingout, "how's your face lookin'?" And then he touches his face like a girl would do, pretty intimate, but quick. Quick enough for the awkward gayness/kindaness to be ignored. I guess the quickness of it, and the way the other two reacted to it(which was no to react at all), just made the moment BROMANCE.


Good stuff. Nigahiga turned hot on me! Jay's always been hot. keke <3

Fall term's almost over already, which means my internship's coming to a close, thank God. I've enjoyed the experience, and I'm glad it hasn't scared me away from the profession. I can see myself doing something similar to this in the future, but my weakness is most definitely customer service. I choke when I talk to customers. If I don't choke, my voice is too quiet for the customer to hear. It's gotten a teensy bit better. Teensy. I'd rather be in the back, but if I must be in the front, just don't expect me to speak. I'll be your busy worker. :3

My friend Nesha got accepted for a co-op internship in Pennslyvania, at a ski resort. She's a culinary major. They'll provide housing for her, and they'll probably pay her $9/hr. T.T This just reminded how easy my opportunity to go somewhere else for a term was, while being taken care of, at that. *sigggghhhhh* But what can I do. My senior year also requires another internship, and I may just study abroad for that one. If not, I'm going going somewhere way across the US. I'm itching to do that.

I want to bake for the holidays. You know, the good ol' traditional Southern desserts for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I think it'll be a nice thank you gift for Tisha and Mrs. Sonia to give them a few cakes to go with their dinner. Maybe an almond pound cake, red velvet cake, and a carrot cake. KJ wants a pecan pie, but I told him he has to supply the moolah! :DD Next week should be fun.

Welp, tomorrow fur shur. :)

Goodnight, all, and be blessed! <33

haerae: (whazz now?)
It's been a long time! Spring term is beginning tomorrow! And I have academic classes for the first time this year. It's pretty exciting. I don't have to get up super early except on Wednesdays, I don't have to wear my chef outfit except on Wednesdays, and I don't have classes at all on Mondays. 

My classes this term: 

Baking Science (same hours as lab classes: 7am-1pm) on Wed. 
Leadership (NONONO - insert Jokwon here - ) on Tuesdays and Thursdays 
Food & Beverage Cost Control - on Tues. and Thurs. 
Sanitation on Tues. 


I don't know what to expect, but hopefully, it's just a repeat of CCS, if not easier. I heard there's alot of writing and craziness in Baking Science and that Cost Control class doesn't help it at all, but I'm just hoping it's something like Mrs. Carter's workload. I can deal with that if I had to. 

Over Spring Break, I practically had the campus to myself. The first few days made me stir crazy with the loneliness. I talked to myself more than normal. And I think I was emotionally vulnerable, but I was fine after the break started to come to an end. Ariel, Olivia, and Alexis(another Alexis. We call this one Sandycheeks <3) went to stay in Lake Norman for three days in a Marriot hotel. They invited me to stay with them for free, but I just stayed in my dorm. I wanted to get things done, but I didn't do anything, really. lol I was supposed to work on the book, but I sat around with the file open.  NOTHING WAS DONE. I took over the whole common room for two nights and watched tv in there, played sims. It was great. But I didn't even keep up with Rosetta Stone. I got it to learn Korean. And I AM going to learn it. I'm currently on Unit 2, and so far, so good. I know some colors, I can ask "What is this?"; I can count to 6, and read some words, so it's coming along. I enjoy doing it. It's fun. That must mean I'm obsessed with Korea. I am. lol 

I'm gonna dye my hair. It's happening Wednesday. I'm afraid, because it's gonna be lighter and louder, but my biggest worry is if it doesn't compliment my skin. I'm going with a red. The red Tyra Banks sported a few times. 



Yeah. That's all I want to say today. That, and I've made an observation. Stasha, Gwyn, and I are attractive singles. Like, we've been single all our lives! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE! Find us, perfect boys! My goodness. >.>;;; Yes, I'm frustrated. We're getting old! pffft.

Anyways. Oh yeah. While I was alone last week, I sang a song by James Fauntleroy and made my voice chipmunk. It sounds all Disney at the end, but I think it's pretty cute. lol And I improvised on like, two words, because James Fauntleroy doesn't seem to have lyrics for any of his songs, so. . . bear with me. I had fun doing it, so I think I'm gonna do it often. heehee! <3 Listen prease!
