That's What You Get For Sticking Out Your Neck

Currently Playing: "Music Show" by Super Kidd

This band is actually really funny... They're Korean. The music video for their song "Love Dance" is funny. Some of their songs on their album don't sound real original (like, one of them sounded like The Ting Tings's "Shut Up and Let Me Go"), but other than that, they're cool.

They're less rock than what people claim them to be. They have lots of electronic elements to them, judging from their album. I really like them. It's fun, funny music. :D


This week was rather hectic. My aunts and uncles came from across the US (okay.. only two of them...) for my uncle's wedding. The entire thing lasted the whole day. The ceremony itself was pretty short... That was held in Worcester. Then everyone had to drive to Boston for a tea ceremony at her
house (they're Chinese). After that we had the reception at a restaurant in Chinatown which included a 10 course meal! Haha. The food was really good, but for some reason, I couldn't eat much. Most people weren't really full by the end of the night.

Yesterday and today I spent with my aunts. Mostly shopping. Saw Transformers. It was okay. Ate lots of food at grandma's house. Lost a lot of sleep. Luckily, I wasn't called to work in this week, although I did miss a call from my boss during the wedding ceremony. Oops.

This is random, but every time I try to spell lucky or luckily, I keep typing licky. Hahaha.

Hopefully, I'm not doing anything tomorrow. My aunts invited me to lunch at Minado's in Natick, but I don't know if I want to go. It is free food (for me at least...).

Umm, wow. This was real boring. I need exciting things in my life.

This is Not a Test or an SOS

Currently Playing: "The Wolf" by Miniature Tigers

Aha. I love that band. They need to come to Boston.

Well, I didn't pass my road test. Haha. I had a good laugh about some of the reasons why I failed, then that turned to frustration, then anger. So... oh well. He failed me on not looking over my shoulder when reversing (which I so did...), forgetting one signal (ugh, I can't believe I forgot that), and going 35 in a 25mph zone (haha, well, okay. But I didn't know the speed limit). I'm just going to have to take it again. That's fine...

Work was really tiring yesterday. There was a huge rush of customers from 10-1 so I hardly ever left the register. They put me in men's suits. Luckily, I didn't have to help people look for things. I got work on Monday also!

I need to make money so maybe I can go on a trip during one of those college breaks...

So many bands I like are releasing albums and having concerts. I want all of it. I need to remember the dates.
Paolo Nutini:.................Friday.............July 24.....House of Blues
*We Are Scientists:.....Thursday.......July 30......The Middle East
Tinted Windows:.........Monday..........Aug 3........Paradise Rock Club
*Parachute:..................Wednesday...Aug 12.....Paradise Rock Club
Ben Folds:....................Thursday.......Oct 1........Boston Symphony Hall
*Mute Math:..................Thursday.......Nov 9........House of Blues

Arctic Monkeys and The Flaming Lips are also releasing new albums (also Mute Math, but I knew that for a while).

Go Run and Tell That

Currently Playing: "Now We Go" by Peppertones

I just downloaded a lot of Korean indie/rock albums yesterday when I should have gone to bed. I need time to listen to all of them. Haha.

I'm gonna get my license tomorrow~! Hooray! I wish I could go somewhere once I get it, but I have to clean the house because people are coming over and then I have work all weekend, so... That will be put on halt until the weekday comes.

My life is boring.

I Am Your Umbrella

Currently Playing: "Without It" by Mute Math

Okay, so this layout (which isn't even that good by the way) was a lot more difficult than it should've been, just getting that out of the way. The HTML is so much more difficult than what I used to do.

I'm pretty much beat. Today, I didn't do anything, but my weekend seemed really heavy. I had training all day Friday and Saturday and I went to a bridal shower and a graduation party yesterday. I was so nervous my 2nd day because I got to actually work on the floor after register training ended. I was horrible at doing transactions for the first hour, but I slowly got better. It stinks that I don't work till next Saturday. 7:45AM to 4:45PM. Yay, me. Sunday, I went to a bridal shower in Boston then a graduation party down in Newport. I didn't get home till around 10:30PM and I was so tired. I went on my laptop a bit, but I thought I was going to pass out, so I quickly went to bed. I love beds.

My family is having a gathering down in Rhode Island that day for my aunt who is coming to visit, but I won't be able to go because I have to work. Ugh, that's sad. I'm hoping they won't make me work a lot of weekends during the school year because, well, it should be obvious.

This week is pretty much nothing. All that I'm looking forward to is my road test and then work. I need to hurry and get my license so I can go places.

Edit: Mute Math is coming to the House of Blues in Boston on Nov. 12th!!
It sucks that it's a Thursday, but it is awesome anyways.

Paolo Nutini is also coming to Boston on July 24th. I really want to go to everything... I'm so poor. =(

We Are Peculiar People

I haven't blogged since middle school when I had Xanga. It was really popular during that time, but I find not many people use it nowadays. Sad. I've been wanting to get a blog on wordpress, but I guess blogspot is easier since I already had a gmail account. I'm sure wordpress will happen sooner or later. Then, I can pretty it up with my awesome coding skills that have not been put to use since those Xanga days. I need to brush up on my HTML and CSS.

I don't actually know who would read this since personal blogs aren't common with the people I know. I don't know why people like getting comments on their entries. It's like you need to know that at least someone cares about your life since you can't find anyone else to rant to. I find writing it out good enough for me. I don't have to say it to a certain person, it just needs to be said. That way I get whatever I'm feeling off my chest and feel better because I expressed my concerns (even if no one listens). I blabble on and on about certain topics when it comes to people so be prepared whoever you are.

I bought 3 books today when I wasn't supposed to: Living the Wisdom of the Tao, Walden & Civil Disobedience, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. That last one doesn't really relate to the other 2, but it sounds awesome. I've already finished the first one. I really like Lao-tzu's passages. It's hard to say which one is my favorite, but I do have one that is just very memorable.

I tripped up the escalator when I was at the mall earlier this morning. It wasn't even on, so that's pretty sad. Luckily, I did not fall and no one was around. If someone falls up an escalator and no one is around, does she make a sound? Yes.

I have to get up early tomorrow for my 2nd day of training, but I can't bring myself to get to sleep early. Yesterday night, I went to bed around 11:30PM and was up for a good 2 hours before I actually fell asleep. I think about too many things.

I like writing. I wish my school had more writing classes. Luckily, I'm taking Creative Writing in my 2nd term of this coming year as well as an Inquiry Seminar in the 4th term. I'm really excited.

I'm not sarcastic at all today. Showing some improvement?
