Overcast day, pinwheels, and flowers

Here are the cute pinwheels that we got from a dollar store. They make cute little spinning sounds in the wind..


Why is it that I always post so late and miss out on some great blogger writings? Errg.... -__-

To sum up what I missed, my Spring Break didn't amount to much, unfortunately.. I ended up NOT going to that Red Riding Hood movie since I was advised not to. People were saying that it was really bad. I went online too and the reviews were not so great, the negativity towards that movie was too much so I decided against it. I'm gonna wait for the movie to come out on DVD for this one. So sad, I was so looking forward to seeing another movie in theatres again... Oh well, there's always Pirates of the Caribbean 4 and Hp7 pt2 to look forward to~! ^^

I took a few pictures of the rainy day we were having around Wednesday or Thursday. A little Spring Rain but no snow storm this year... Very odd.. u.u

For this picture, I really HAD to photoshop the colors. They were just so dull! It was a very gray day.

Baby leaves..

More baby leaves.




The tulips have not bloomed yet...

I personally think this daffodil is really out of place (it's located right behind the tulips) but since it was technically there first, I can't say much. >_<
Gawd, I so wanna pull it out and place it somewhere else!

A bunch of daffodils. This one is a short bunch of flowers and the other one before this is a single, tall daffodil. :/

Last but not least, the two potted plants that my mom stuck in the ground. They look so dead right now that I can't really remember what kinds of flowers they were. Hopefully they'll bloom next year looking less like dead onions and more like pretty flowers. ^^

Things to look forward to: March 2011

I think having something to look forward to is so important in everyday life. It drives us to move on and accomplish things that we could never do without some kind of positive energy.

So, here's a few things that I'm personally looking forward to:

I completely understand if people make comparisons with this movie and Twilight. I mean, who wouldn't? Same director, similar concept, same fantasy element, blah blah blah...
However, I'm willing to give this movie a chance and am looking forward to seeing this during my Spring Break~! ^o^
It looks like there will probably be a much, much better storyline compared to Twilight as this movie's based off a popular fairy tale. The scenery also looked breathtaking after getting a few glimpses from the trailer. I can't wait. And Red Riding Hood's long flowing red cloak, *sigh*, beautiful... It really made me want to get a red cloak of my own!

I'm so excited since it's been a while since I've been to a theatrical movie. T^T

I read a few books on Little Red Riding Hood; I have an insatiable appetite for good fairy tales. I've also read some remakes of the fairy tales such as Scarlett Moon for the Red Riding Hood story and I was so intrigued by the dark sexuality it presented; The wolf being some mysterious and dangerous guy and the girl being fairly naive and drawn to his darkness... *cough, Twilight, cough!* xP

After briefly discussing whether this Red Riding Hood movie was based off Scarlett Moon by Debbie Vigue with a yt buddy, we've come to the conclusion that it's not; the story is obviously different with a whole new cast of characters.
Oh well, I always look forward to a good remake. Hopefully I won't be disappointed. The reviews I saw on this movie were equally good and bad so yeah, we'll see.

And if you can believe this, I'm actually looking forward to a.... SPEECH! I seriously don't know why but I am looking forward to this thing. For speech class (why am I taking a speech class you ask? Well, first, for the last class credit needed for my associates and second, simply to learn to speak better in public), we had to pick an aspect of a culture and write a speech on it. I believe that it'll be due after Spring Break. I picked Soju (Korean alchohol) because it looked interesting and I always see Koreans chugging this shit down in all the dramas I watch, lol.

I found some interesting facts about Korean "drinking culture" too so I'd like to speak about that.

Yesterday I was getting really pumped and excited about this. I was even thinking about going out and buying a Soju bottle so I could try it for myself and show the class and maybe even act how how Korean's drink this beverage. I found this interesting little fact yesterday that I didn't know before: When younger Koreans drink with an elder or anyone who is senior to them, they should turn their head away and drink instead of facing the other person because it's considered polite. I saw this action in a ahem, lol, K-drama and I thought the girl was embarrassed! LOL!

If I do end up buying this, I would hope to get the fruit flavored soju.. I've done some research and some people describe drinking soju by stating that it's like drinking nailpolish remover or gasoline! Ick, I hope that's not true.. Makes me scared to buy it.. >_>

My last speech was on a historical public figure and I think I gained a lot of confidence from that last speech. I used all the guidelines my instructor gave us and I think it was rather effective! I'll be careful not to get cocky though.. xP This has happened when I was younger in science classes and did lead to my downfall of being too careless; I was too overconfident.

Recently, I've gotten this clothing addiction where I can never have enough clothes and if I get the chance to shop, I will do it! Of course, only if there's a good deal.

This girl is one of my fav fashion models. She's just so adorable, I don't think many girls can hate her since she has this look that's so cute, innocent, and full of happiness. ^-^
I think she's super efficient at modeling since I wanna buy all the clothes she wears. >.<
