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. . .


(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 ♥ )
haerae: (Big Bang together)
Can't go to bed until I make a quick entry. I have to make it daily! I have to! Or at least try. If I did this earlier today, I would have finally posted pictures of what I've been doing in class! But I honestly have been busy today. Last minute, though, I did my laundry, hung up my uniforms, tidied up my side of the room, and quickly did my homework. I had to do a sketch of what I want to do my chocolate centerpiece on. It's making me nervous. I think I may have picked a pretty complicated thing to do, with my level of experience, at least. I don't know why I put too much on my plate, but yeah. . . I pray it turns out right when it's time for practical. That'll be the last two days of the week I come back after break.

I want to bring my knife kit with me home for thanksgiving break, but I don't know how I'm going to get it on the plane with me. The only way I can think of it being possible is if I boxed up the bag and had it tossed on with my luggage. I'm going to call the airport to find out, because I have to take it with me, otherwise I'm not baking jack!

My dad's buying my ticket for November 20th, at some time at 6 in the morning (theres not many times to choose from, apparently), so I'm going to have to get up super early and catch the shuttle that leaves from the Starbucks across the street every 30 minutes. Man, it's gonna be cold. -__-

I called my mom today after class. I hadn't talked to her in a couple of weeks. I wanted to tell her I'd learned that if she ate good chocolate everyday, it would help her teeth, and shrink her stomach. The more chocolate liqueur in the chocolate, the better it is for you. So eat chocolate peeps!

She wanted to know how I was and all that jazz, asked about my friends. Somehow, we ended up talking about my dad's side of the family and it was really interesting. I learned things I hadn't known before, like that my grandpa was a very important man (was into politics and stuff), shook hands with former president Ronald Reagan! :D Just interesting facts like that. She also told me that she loved my grandmother's ex-husband because he used to give my mom and dad a huge wad of cash when I was a baby. Cash like $300-500 cash! His name's George. hehe, George. I met him when I went to St. Thomas for a cruise, when we stopped in Antigua. He's a very sweet man, and I think it's precious to see my grand-Lydia catching up with him like best friends do.

So yeah, I've been having really good convos with my mom lately. It's relieving when I get off the phone with her. I think the distance is helping with that alot. <3

I talk to Stasha almost every other day. Either that or every weekend. I rarely call her. She calls me. And gives me updates. lol xD And Dede hasn't even asked about me! She hasn't called once! Well then, she's not getting any gifts from me any time soon. pshh.

Okay. I need to go to bed. Omg, yes I do.


And be blessed please! <33
