Tanjoubi Omedetou, Akira-san!

January 20, 2011

*OBSESSES MADLY OVER PICTURE AND THROWS SAILOR MOON THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR KUNZITE AKIRA*

This is the first time in eight years they have worked together. Eight years.

Aaah, my babies. I mean, sure they’re both older than me (Akira is 34 todaythirty-four… yikes), but still. Sailor Moon is my childhood and my present, I will always love it, and this is my Usagi-chan and Kunzite. Even though they didn’t become my Usagi-chan and Kun-kun until I was 16-ish, it kinda feels like they’ve always been there. Like Miyuu-chan were hiding behind Mitsuishi-san (and behind Annelie Berg when I was six and didn’t know better than to like the Swedish dub, though nowadays it still holds sentimental value for me ^^’) and that white-haired, hot, gay person (he’s not completely straight, anyway :P) always hid that black-haired, very hot, not really gay person (still not entirely sure he’s completely straight though, but who in BSSM really are ^^’). That’s not to say I’m not a fan of anime!Kunzite/anime!Zoisite together. ‘Cause those two are awesome. I just happen to like live-action!Kun-kun and live-action!Zoi a bit more. ^^’

Nickname galore! It’s a wonder Zareb hasn’t become “Za-za” or “Zebu” yet, though perhaps he would indeed kill me if that happened. Better not push it, ne? ^^’

I am sad about this blog. Because it’s so ugly, and I lack the ability to do anything about it. Bleh.

A Christmas Carol

January 16, 2011

Much delayed review is delayed. XD Uhm, but, yes. A Christmas Carol. Doctor Who. SPOILERS. Although if there is someone who hasn’t seen this by now, I feel sorry for you. I mean, I would’ve walked through fire to get to see it on Christmas Day. Sort of. Or managed to get a computer with functioning sound even though the one I had had died on me, and managed to find a quiet enough place to watch the episode uninterrupted in a house filled with eight children and two or three rather drunk and loud dads. Which is what I did. That equals going through fire, yes? I am kinda happy Christmas celebrations are more or less over on the evening of the 25th in Sweden though. Imagine having to postpone watching Doctor Who. The horror.

 

But yes. I have a new, shiny computer now. My own, my precious. So on with the review.

 

Amazing planet is amazing. How do they make it looks so real? ^^’

The sound the spaceship make sound very familiar. Someone tell me which earlier spaceship in Doctor Who made that sound? KTNX.

“Who’s in the honeymoon suite?” Who, indeed? I was smiling like a fool here, the first time. Oh wait, I do that every time. Rory~ ❤ And Amy, of course. She’s also WIN, just not as much WIN as Rory. Though I’ve missed them both. Mostly Rory. XD

Enter Amelia Pond! *still doesn’t like Amelia, but it sounds more impressive with long name* Ahaa, gotta love that skirt. And those legs. And, well, Amy. In general. ❤ I like how her hair is curled. At least I think it is curled. It looks different, doesn’t it? From previous episodes? Yes? Tell me I’m right and not just rambling about and being hair-obsessed all over again. Oh wait, no need to tell me I’m not hair-obsessed, I am. But tell me I’m not wrong. XD

ENTER RORY WILLIAMS! No wait, Rory Pond! Or Williams-Pond? Or Pond-Williams? The Doc (here we go again ^^’ but at least nowadays “the Doc” is used affectionately, and not because I don’t see him as the Doctor, like it was before…) calls him Mr Pond. Is he serious or not? Rory, what’s your name nowadays? XD I wanna know so I can fangirl properly!

Oh God, period clothing. Does Amy have a fetish for that, or is it just the Roman one? Either way, you know, I hope to see more of it. 8D Cause I totally share Amy’s fetish. *cough*Wut?*cough*

Just a bit of fun?” I. Am. Way. Too. Intrigued. ^__^ And very, very jealous of Amy. Gosh, will this ever stop? Will I spend the rest of the season (and hopefully some future seasons) throwing glances at Rory and wishing I was Amy? I think Captain Jack needs to come along so I can stare at something that isn’t taken. ^^’

Come along Pond…” <333

WHAT IS THIS GORGEOUS OPENING I HAVE NEVER SAID ANYTHING BAD ABOUT EVER IN ANY OF MY REVIEWS? I LOVE IT, YES I DO. <333 (Amazing what a bit of Arthur Darvill can do to change my mind… XD)

Pretty city is pretty. I love all these future-but-still-old-fashioned places that always turn up in sci-fi and stuff. I hope the future really does turn out to look all Victorian-ish and steampunk and all that. ^^

OMG, IT’S FAKE-DUMBLEDORE! YAY MICHAEL GAMBON! Seriously though, I love the guy when he’s not messing up Dumbledore. Even though that might not be his fault. Yes. ^^’

Those Willy Wonka-ish goggles some people are wearing are cool.

The Crystal Feast.” I love that, for some reason. It sounds pretty. Bet that’s what they end up celebrating in the future in Crystal Tokyo. *random Sailor Moon-moment* x)

I have never heard of Katherine Jenkins before. Is that bad of me? ^^’ But she’s really pretty and all that. 🙂 She looks like a Disney Princess or something. ^^ And sounds like one, too. 😀 And Abigail is cool. *really, no pun intended* ^_^’ Her surname is cool to, I mean. Pettigrew. ^^ *Marauder-fangirls*

I just realised this is the first review of a Christmas Special I make. *raises glass* Oh wait, it’s empty! *hurries away to refill it* Cheers for my first Doctor Who Christmas Special review! Here’s to Rory being in the next one too! 8D

Well, it’s a kind of landing…” That really shouldn’t make me LOL, should it? ^^’ But it does. Sorry. I think it’s just the whole… well, Dumbledore thing. Sci-fi Dumbledore… XD

TARDIS! ❤ Oooh, that sound could make me smile anywhere, anytime. Sure I’ve said that before, but still. <333

DoctorSanta! That is now official. KAY. Kay. Moving on. ^__^

Aaaand, he’s off! All over again. And how we have missed his rambling. ❤

I feel like I need to stop a bit in the gushing here and mention that Matt still will never be my Doctor like David was, of course. But he’s certainly in second place by now, even though I still don’t like some of the things he says. But the way he is and talks and acts, well, makes him DoctorMatt, and that’s just how it should be, right? 🙂

Jeff? Jeff? Wut? Doctor… ? Explanations are in order. As always. I still wanna know what the Earth being “a fully established, level 5 planet” means, and that’s from frikkin’ Eleventh Hour. Which was in April. Last year. Just sayin’.

Give me time. And a crayon.” Aaah, bring out that book with favourite Doctor Who quotes again, I have things to add! ^_^

In 900 years of time and space I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important before.” ❤

That whole isomorphic (wait, wut, spellchecker tells me that’s a real word, I didn’t know that… XD) thing is brilliant. YES.

Do you know where that puts you? 4004.” I am so torn between if I like this or not. Death threats. One one hand, the Doctor does kill. Frequently. On the other hand, he kinda, well, doesn’t. (Except he does.) Or I’m just in denial because I want him to be a good person. A hero. Not an anti-hero. (Even though most anti-heroes are lots cooler than actual heroes.) This isn’t making any sense anymore, not even in my head. Bleh. Perhaps you get my point anyway.

The whole sequence where the Doctor talks really, really fast and spots details and clues and stuff in the room and make all those deductions screams Sherlock. Well actually, “screams” doesn’t cover how similar it is. Not that I mind. Because I love it. And if anyone except Sherlock Holmes could get away with doing stuff like that it would be the Doctor. And Sito. But still. Pointing out. ^^

And this pic is funneh. Look at how the Doctor seems to stand. He's doing that Michael Jackson dance step thingie. XD

Back to Rory~ And I fully plan to point out every time he’s on screen in this review. ‘Cause even if he really isn’t a lot in this episode he totally steals the show and is gorgeous anyway. ^^

Amy is lying to Rory. She’s telling liez. SHE DOESN’T DESERVE HIM. *calms down* Okay, okay, come here Jack, give me a kiss… now. Is the new Torchwood starting soon? I need eyecandy that isn’t married or will be or doesn’t do Humans or are otherwise unavailable. (= the Doctor. ‘Cause he might one day be married to River, there is certain complications with him loving Humans as every Doctor/Rose shipper sadly knows, and he’s as unavailable as they get either way. And this review is starting to sound like something that could strictly be from Lee’s part of view. Screw my self-inserts for taking over my life. Oh wait, too late. *fail*)

*gets too caught up in the episode to comment for a while*

Quantum enfolding and a paperclip? Again, I am intrigued.

That lottery thing reminds me of that competition they fooled the Dursleys off to in Harry Potter when they were taking him to Grimmauld Place in the fifth book for some reason. Heh. ^^’

Mmmm, Matt. ❤ Ghost of Christmas past. ❤ David is ghost of Christmas present. Rory/Arthur or Jack/John can be ghost of Christmas future if they want to. Then I’ll gladly go all grumpy and Scrooge/Sardick for a while during next Christmas so they can all come and hang out with me. ^__^

Have you ever seen Mary Poppins? Good, because that comparison would’ve been rubbish.” Mwihihih. I have never seen Mary Poppins either. (No, really.) But I know the story, sort of. ^^ And I totally agree with the Doc. Even though he’s got SOCIAL INEPTITUDE with capital letters. (Or does twelve-year-old boys talk girls? They don’t, right? *clearly has got some social ineptitude as well* I think Lee is rubbing off on me…)

How did boredom even get invented?” That’s a really good question. Personally, I never get bored, but still. It’s really a crappy thing to get, isn’t it? Bored, I mean. *rambles on for a bit almost like the Doctor* I say almost, ’cause of course I could never do it as good as he does. But still. ^^

Mummy? Mummy? Was that a nod to The Empty Child or am I just getting creeped out for no reason?

Why are you so interested in fish?” “’Cause they’re scary.” Good answer indeed. Could’ve come right out of my mouth, if I had been as smart as that boy. *cough*

Lalalala, bow ties are not cool. One day we will settle that once and for all, and the world will be a much better place. Yay.

I wear it, and I don’t care.” Kay, have to give this one to him, I suppose. ‘Cause that’s pretty much my philosophy when it comes to wearing what I want to too. ^^’ I still don’t like when he asks people to trust him, though… The first time he did that, with the gun and all, ruined those words forever for me. But that’s one of the things that makes DoctorMatt now. So it’s really all good. 🙂

There’s a shark in my bedroom?!” That line. Only in Doctor Who. ❤

Oh yay, the shark is my new hero. It wrecked the ugly screwdriver! 8D

But why so many cold places? Poor Sito won’t be able to go anywhere. XD *teasing* Wait, so that’s why he doesn’t like the Christmas Specials…

Yes, Doctor. When someone sings that beautiful, shut it. Or the fish just won’t bite your cheeks next time. *gives bad mental images to everyone who reads this* >D

Fishies among the clouds. So pretty. ❤

Oh God, the boy’s got a bow tie now. Am I to believe he spent the rest of his life wearing those? Poor thing. x) You’re a bad influence, Doc.

You know, in Hawaii, Santa actually comes in a canoe with dolphins. Just throwing that out there. Just call me Stitch. ;P

Oh dear, the fezes. Where’s River when you need her? XD But YAY for multicolored scarfs!


Aaah, the Doctor knows nothing about girls. How lucky it is that Lee’s around, right? *shot*

Ooh, they celebrated most of Christmas on Christmas Eve because Abigail visited. Like in Sweden. ^^

It’s this or going to your room and designing your kind of screwdriver. Don’t make my mistakes.” Aaaw. ; _ ; That kinda makes me a bit sad. And teary. At the same time as it makes me smile. But don’t worry, Doctor. Lots of people love you, you know. ^^

ESPECIALLY IN A TUX OMG YOU NEED TO CHANGE CLOTHES MORE OFTEN I KEEP TELLING YA. ❤

And I love how famous women (and a lot of non-famous women too, of course XD) keep falling for him. Like, ehm, “the Virgin Queen”, and now Marilyn Monroe. I totally worship whoever changed Monroe’s Wikipedia page for a moment though, after this episode. Whoever you are, you are awesome. That whole part with him trying to break up the kissing is, too.

I wonder how long the Doctor had to wait between Kazran telling him he didn’t want him to come next Christmas and once he stood by that window. And where and when he waited, you know? I mean, I can’t imagine the Doctor just hanging around keeping an eye on Kazran and watching him grow up the slow, normal way. He’d get bored. But he couldn’t have gone back to the present either, ’cause then Amy and Rory (<3) would be closer to crashing and stuff. Getting time traveling induced headache now. What do you think? ^^’

Michael Gambon has pretty… womanly nails, doesn’t he? ^^’ *very random observation*

Amy and David are both the ghosts of Christmas present? Hotness overload.

A ghost? Dressed like that?” Bwahaha, Fake-Dumbledore, I love you. ^^

Eyes off the skirt.” *breaks down into giggles* Oh, Rory. Marry me… oh wait. Never mind. XD

You turned into a Roman.” “Yeah, yeah, I do that.” ROFL. XD

It must be terrifying seeing yourself as an old man/woman like that. Like… one day I will be this weak, bald old person with that stick in my hand. No more able to run around and climb trees and stuff. No matter that I happen to be grumpy and mean. Or perhaps that’s just me.

But should Kazran be able to touch his younger self like that? When Rose did it in Father’s Day she caused a paradox. Or was that only because those bats were around? I forget. Though maybe the Doctor has found a way to prevent that kind of stuff by now. Makes sense, doesn’t it? Or it just saves me a plothole. Either way. ^^’

And here’s the song with all the Silences. Really, now, Moffat. I’m gonna end up scared to death by this Silence before I even know what it is, with those hints dropping everywhere and giving me the creeps. >_<

Lucky Amy~ ❤

 

Gosh, Rory is cute. ❤ *needed to say that*

You know, that can almost be mistaken for a real person. The snowman isn’t bad either.” I love you, Amy.


Rory’s face when Amy hugs the Doctor is the cutest thing ever. ❤

Just for teh lulz. And the Rory-hotness. ^_^

 

 

COMING SOON

Running! Naked River! Rory! ❤ Jammy dodgers! Creepy dolls!


I wear a Stetson now. Stetsons are cool.” Yeah, actually a lot more cool than both bow ties and fezes, I have to agree…


Doctor with HAIR. In Area 51. Now why is that somehow sexy? Eh, the HAIR bit, not that he’s in Area 51. Which I’m just kinda guessing anyway.

Monsters are real.” Which basically means Moffat will scare me just as much this next season as he’s always done. Oh the joy. (No, I mean that. Really.)

Last obligatory picture of the hottie of this show. Yessss. ❤

P.S. Russell Tovey narrated for this Confidential. I hope that means he (and Jack) is gonna be involved in something more Whovian again soon. ^^

Today’s film.

December 26, 2010

Not gonna claim I got everything since there were no subs, but I got what it was about anyway. The general idea. And a bit more. *feels proud* ^_^ And that it was awesome anyway just proves it was really good, right? ^^

Fail things
– Zoroark’s ponytail, as usual. It cracks me up, especially when she ran and it sort of swayed from side to side behind her. Yeah, not even the fact that she is indeed a girl helps. She’s so much less kick-ass with it. The eyes still wins me over, though. ^^
– Shiny Raikou and Entei. Those two just doesn’t look good in those colours.
– Small amount of Team Rocket. Though the films have had that going on a lot lately. And I totally forgot that as soon as I saw James lying on that boat thing with the wind whipping though his hair at the end… ❤
– Zoroark not talking like Zorua did. I mean, why not? I’m gonna pretend she just played cool and didn’t want to. ^^
– Kodai’s suit. WTF?
– … as well as the fact that he cut off his hair. Okay, so you saw yourself with short hair in a vision where you were all succesful and junk, but still. So not cool.
– Celebi. Celebi, Celebi, Celebi. The epitome of fail things, you are. And evil. I don’t care if you saved Zoroark. You’re a manipulative little time traveller. And I don’t mean that in a good way. I mean that in a way like you and Theodora would get along, not you and the Doctor.
– Evil Ash never making it into the film. Honestly. Biggest let-down ever. Perhaps even bigger than when they made Hun a guy. Or gave her a male voice anyway. Whatever.

Good things

– …Everything else. Particularly James and Ash and Dawn and the other big amount of hot people showing up during the ending song. Yes. 8D
– Also, Zorua sleeping in Zoroark’s hair. So cute. ^^ Ignoring the ponytail, of course.
– Shiny Suicune. I want one. ❤
– Rioka is hot.

This is a good film. Not the greatest, but I knew it wouldn’t be, with Celebi in it. ^^’ So yay. ^_^

Oooh, I’m blogging. 8D

No spoilers, promise.

November 18, 2010

I’m gonna keep away the spoilers for this, kay? And I won’t call this a review. More a ramble with lots of opinions thrown in, and how I feel about it all. Awesome, yes? How awesome? This awesome…

Yes, I'm amused. Out of all those shots with awkward words edited into the background, Snape gets the one word I love to use, and do so... excessively. Anyone who reads this blog knows that part. It's both terrifying, disturbing and, well... awesome.

So… I often say that “I have no words”, and while I sat on the train home tonight trying to figure out how I should write this, I once again thought of using them. But then I properly thought about it, and those words are really rubbish, aren’t they? If I didn’t have any words, then I wouldn’t be able to write a blog post about it. So I won’t say that this time. Instead, I will say that there are an incredible amount of words to be said about this film.

I’ll start out very simply. “Wow”. Yes. It’s that good.

Now, I don’t know whether it has to do with the fact that I am so good at separating the books and the films these days, having had to learn to do that the hard way after the whole Harry Potter and Snape… thingy. (Do I have to write it out that “Harry Potter and Snape” = my name for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince? I shouldn’t have to. Yet I just did. Bleh.) But it’s like… haters gonna hate. People need to be able to separate these films from the books, because it will never be the same. That way, they will get much more out of looking at them. I like my description of the films as “a Muggle version of the books”. But it’s still Potter. Wonderful, wonderful Potter.

*eats more chocolate to stay awake* Oh God, Remus. ❤

He’s awesome, by the way. Somehow, even those characters who got an incredibly small amount of screentime manages to really shine. Everyone seems somehow… perfect. Even those actors and actresses I usually don’t really like in how they portray their characters. Maybe it’s because I pay so much attention to them all, knowing it is the last time I will get to do so. Or perhaps they knew, while filming, that it was the last time, and so really put and extraordinary amount of everything into their performance. Maybe it’s a combination. Rupert (<3), Daniel (LOL, ladies underwear), Emma (dat kiss), David (siriusly, you will never be my Remus, but I love your Remus anyway), Natalia (best Tonks ever), Alan (truly, no words for this one), Julie (Mollywobbles!), Mark (brilliance), James and Oliver (I wanna hug them again), Bonnie (gurl, you got catcalls) , Evanna (thank you), Robbie (no one else could play Hagrid), Matthew (kick-ass), Tom (I’m still in denial about how hot you are, but you rule as Draco), Ralph (terrifying, always), Freddie (YUM), Dave (if it weren’t for Moony, you’d be the most awesome werewolf ever), Helena (awesome fashion sense, the best Bella, you make me feel really proud about playing her too, rather than terrified that I might actually be somewhat good at it XD), Jason (Luscious, you are <3), Timothy (they really messed that one up, didn’t they? It makes me really, really sad and angry, because your Wormtail is love, no matter what anyone, even me,  says), Imelda (Hem-hem. You. Are. Awesome.), Brendan (I don’t think I’ve ever switched so fast between wanting to scream at someone and then cried my eyes out over that very same person), George (“I don’t like Snape.” DUDE. You’re brilliant.), Harry (they messed you up too, didn’t they? I’ll just pretend everything happened before the cameras was turned on, kay? 🙂 ‘Cause you’re an awesome Big D, even though you’re not blond ^^’), Fiona (I love you for that single closeup. Thank you <3), Richard (made of amazing), Clémence (can I have your wedding dress, thanks? You made me squeal over Fleur/Bill, I’ve never done that before), Frances (I didn’t even know you were going to be in this film! I was SO HAPPY), John (you are, in many ways, one of the most awesome things in the first film. I have missed you), Miranda (yes, I hate you. And that’s a good thing ^^’), Toby (oh, I can’t even bring myself to say anything bad about you, Dreamlord and all. Thank you, for always making Dobby sound the best <3), Warwick (how many roles have you played, now, in these seven films? You’re brilliant, you are. I don’t know if I would be able to stare down HelenaBella like that), even Michael (I was always in tears when you were on screen. Damn you for looking the part so much at times). You are all awesome. And the new cast, don’t get me started. They’re all so hot. And with some of them, I really mean “hot” as in, you know, not just unbelievably awesome, but really, really hot and gorgeous. (Evil-totally-sexy-bad-guy-Snatcher, who are you and who did you play? *looks it up* Oh. Oh, dear, dear. Why couldn’t he have been just as hot out of costume? ^^’) And, ehm, if I forgot someone’s name above, it was on purpose. ^^’ Not saying that person is bad, not at all. I just can’t see that person as that character no matter how I try.

The music is brilliant, though it didn’t strike me as much as some of the music from the other films have done. It never made me stop and go “WOW” like I remember has happened before in previous films. But it fit. It never seemed out of place.

The sets. Oh, the sets. Half of them seems like plucked right out of my mind, the rest of them is amazing nonetheless. As I’ve already mentioned on FB, I really, really want to live in Grimmauld Place, having Pads’s room as mine. Even if it lacks the scantily clad Muggle girls. x) Or who knows, maybe they were there, but they just never made it on camera. So much of these sets never do, which is really sad but, I guess, necessary. How accepting I am these days. XD

This film is truly amazing. It’s not the book, but no film will ever be, so whatever. Though I have things I don’t like about it, the cast does a brilliant job. Nothing feels particularly rushed. The pacing, how one scene switches from another, is totally epic at times, enough to give you chills. It’s truly frightening. The camera angles… At one point, there is a scene viewed from above involving one of the things in HP I fear the most, which really freaked me out. So many scenes made me twitch in my chair, or involuntarily made me push myself into the back of it as if I wanted to escape. I actually screamed out loud a few times, though luckily, other people in the cinema did too, so it wasn’t embarrassing. ^^’ I cried. Oh, I cried. I began after just a while, then I got scared enough several times to stop, and then the last part of the film just had me bawling all the way through. And I kept crying when I got home too. But there were jokes in there too, wonderful jokes. The whole cinema was laughing at times, and clapping their hands.

And finally, one non-spoilery nitpick. The credits weren’t special at all. No Marauder’s Map, no weird smokey effects. Just white text on a black background. Really, now. Lazy Warner Bastards. ❤

*

I am so lifting this whole spoiler ban after the nineteenth. I wanna WRITE about it all properly. ❤

The premiere happens tomorrow in Sweden. So yeah.

November 16, 2010

I’m starting to go to piecies now. As expected. Well actually, I’m surprised it hasn’t started sooner.

It’s not like I can’t remember the feeling I had just before the seventh book were released. I just can’t quite pinpoint exactly what the particular feeling was, or how to describe it. Elation. Sadness. Joy. Panic. Relief. Dread. Excitement. All of it. And more. I don’t think it makes sense for people who hasn’t experienced it. Somehow, it doesn’t even make sense to me, at the same time as it does, irrefutably, make all the sense in the world. I remember sitting in the car on my way to the place where I would buy the book. My mum was driving. She was very silent. I was very silent. Words failed me, and I didn’t know what she felt, what made her stay silent. Perhaps she for once felt a tiny bit that thing, that special atmosphere that I always seem to sense during big Harry Potter moments. The tension, like something is holding it’s breath, waiting for the big moment, the bang, the finish. Or perhaps I’m just wishing that was what she felt, that she somehow understood, if only for that one moment. Perhaps she just kept quiet because she knew I wasn’t in the mood for small talk.

I got the book. She drove me home. Still quiet. I started reading. I paused to step out of the car and settle on my bed. Then I kept reading.

My point is, I don’t really know what that feeling was. But I didn’t think it would return, because there would never be anything so big, of that magnitude, ever happening again in the Potter fandom. But here I sit, the words “The Beginning of the End” ringing in my head over and over, knowing that in hours, I will be on the train towards the premiere. Towards the beginning of the end. And it feels fantastic. Elating. Sad. Joyful. Panicky. Relieving. Dreadful. Exciting. And absolutely brilliant.

Noodles!

November 14, 2010

Jag tävlar hos http://kiminostyle.blogg.se om ett “mini-nudle-mix-pack” från Sapporo Ichiban!

Yay! Oh, I feel so bad about updating this only because of a competition, but hey, it’s noodles! ❤ Japanese noodles too. Yeah. I should try and get better at updating, I guess. Haha. I’m a fail blogger sometimes. XD

September 11, 2010

Today I read an article that tried to explain how a Japanese name worked, and there were lots of hiragana scattered about in the text. Now usually, when I read something that mixes Swedish and English, or when I switch between talking/writing in those two languages, I don’t even notice, and that’s how I know I’m good at them. Sort of. XD So imagine my happiness when I realised I’ve read half of this article without noticing the hiragana, but just reading the characters like they were a part of the rest of the text! (Which yeah, they kinda were, but you know what I mean. xD) It means I’m getting lots better at Japanese (hiragana, anyway ^^’), that it’s becoming kinda natural for me and I don’t really have to think when I read. 😀

*

I recently realised that while this actually happens to be my blog, I haven’t written one word about the fact that I’m actually going to school again nowadays. ^^’ But yes, I am currently brushing up on my old grades so that I can go to a proper university later. Something drama/musical oriented, of course.

Point is, it’s actually fun. After two years of rest, school finally seems fun again. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not completely mad, because it’s not like I enjoy doing homework, really. ^^’ But it finally feels like I’m doing something with my life, like I have a goal again. 🙂

*

Look at the mess my blog is in. ; _ ;

Someone who is good with Photoshop help me put it right, ne~? ^__^

(And no, it doesn’t help that WordPress is pissing me off now, too, just like Blogger used to. Is there no blog site out there that like me? -_-)
