end of year survey meme thing – 2015 edition

It feels like I only post to recap my years. LOL.

At home as usual.

What did you do in 2014 that you’d never done before?

  • Went to Cambodia (and, on a related note, went to a place where genocide happened. It was… quite a depressing learning experience.
  • Got a guitar pick at a concert(!!!). LOVE U THE SCRIPT

bastille my heaaaart (see what i did there)

One of my favorite stories/memories about Australia is going to see Bastille in Melbourne. It was one giant coincidence — I wasn’t even supposed to be in Melbourne that weekend, because if my bosses had their way I’d have flown to Sydney two weeks before and I’d have been in Melbourne the previous weekend, which was a long weekend. But visas take time and I only got it before the previous weekend, so my friend D and I decided to go to Melbourne on June 13th, Friday night, and fly back to Sydney on the 15th. Also, even if I’d been there a week early, flights on the long weekend were understandably very expensive by then.

We’d been looking at concerts and shows going on in Australia while we were there and knew Bastille had shows in Sydney and Melbourne that weekend, but they were already sold out when we first checked, right after I got the news that I was going to be sent to Sydney. But when we were booking flights to Melbourne (a couple of days before my flight to Sydney), we thought of checking concert tickets again on a whim. Surprise, new Bastille tickets were available! Suddenly the decision process got a little more complicated. We had two choices:

a) Stick with the original plan to fly back on the 15th, or
b) go to the concert and get the earliest flight back the next morning (there were no late flights we could take that night after the concert).

aka in which you see how much I’ve fallen in love with Australia. sigh.

Where did you begin 2014?
At home, watching the neighbors’ fireworks — still. The parents who used to live in the house in front of ours kissed at midnight, aww.

What did you do in 2014 that you’d never done before?

  • Went on a trip with my sister and not my parents. twice.
  • Went on a trip that I paid for, with my parents.
  • WENT TO AUSTRALIAAAAAAAA
    • Experienced winter! Not a snowy winter, but temperatures were in the single digits. Finally got to wear a coat and gloves and a million layers, haha.
    • Went to a concert outside the Philippines (actually went to two)
    • SAW BASTILLE LIVE WHICH IS ITS OWN ITEM BECAUSE IT WAS THE GREATEST
    • SAW SNOW. AHHHH. Though it doesn’t snow in Sydney, there’s this mountain place (called the Snowy Moutains. How creative, Australia.) where it does and people go to ski and stuff. It wasn’t snowing the day we were there but it had snowed for most of the week before so it was all white and fluffy (and wet and cold. haha)
    • BUILT A SNOWMAN. A tiny, pathetic one.
    • Lived on my own AND abroad. I say lived because hey, it was a long time and I had an apartment (that I didn’t pay for lolol) and bought groceries and cooked. And took out the garbage. Let me pretend, okay lol.
    • Spent my birthday not at home — and in another country, in fact. Not with my family.

my feelings about The Dark Knight Rises

leave a comment »

  • Basically: ALL OF THE FEELINGS. ALL OF THEM. (You should know by now that I have a lot of feelings about everything.)
  • Ok, just so nobody yells at me that I didn’t warn them, YES THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS.

things that happened this weekend

leave a comment »

  • My weekend started on Friday because I was on leave, so that was nice.
  • First thing I did was to renew my driver’s license, get that out of the way before the more… exciting events of the weekend.
    • Hilariously, they said I had 20/20 vision. LMFAO.
    • I have no idea what else they said on my medical/drug tests; for all I know they said I was on coke or something. No idea, was too busy anticipating DAVID COOK.
  • Later that day, I went to buy CDs for DCook’s signing thing, went to Angel’s to get her camera only to discover on the way that she already passed it on to Rie so I needn’t have gone to her place, went there anyway to catch up with her, almost got to the CD signing late, and then FINALLY MET HIM. He laughed at me and I died because of his SMILE. <3
  • Next day, this moment happened: from across the lobby I saw girls flailing so I knew someone must be there, and then I saw Andy, and then David then there were other people but I was too busy to notice them, and basically my friend R, my sister, and I just froze on the spot for the entire ten seconds it took for them to cross the room. They were practically in front of us when my brain worked for a second and I squeaked out HI DAVID, except who I really wanted to meet was Andy (wasn’t even holding out any hope that David would be wandering around, but I knew the band — Andy — could be) but I am dumb and am more capable of calling David’s attention than Andy’s because I don’t know I’m a little bit in love with Andy ROFL ROFL.
  • Next was concert time!
    • It was fantastic as expected. I missed seeing/hearing DCook perform live. We were right at the barricade (well, we had 8th row seats but you know nobody stayed seated), so we were right in the middle heaven, possibly.
    • I took 900++ photos in 1.5 hours, um. Was a little nervous because I wasn’t too familiar with the camera, but quite a few photos turned out well so that’s cool. GOD I WANT A DSLR NOW SO I CAN HAVE PRETTY CONCERT PHOTOS WAH.
    • We were at Andy’s side, so you know I took a lot of photos of him. Hah.
    • He played Rapid Eye Movement last. It’s my absolute favorite song of his, and one of my all-time favorite songs for that matter, so just hearing that one song live made the Patron tickets worth it, sigh. And then he just left us all to die to the tune of that last minute or so of echo-y maaaaaydaaaaay, somebody saaaaave meeeee, which I’ve always said was the recorded desperate sobbing of the fans that he has slayed. I’m glad I got to experience that in real life, lol.
    • I’ve got a photoset on flickr if anyone’s interested. Only has a few photos as of now, will add to it as I continue editing and sorting and picking out photos.
  • Today: tried to take advantage of the last day of the Fully Booked sale. Couldn’t find anything I really wanted, so I just ended up getting another Markus Zusak book, because I couldn’t leave empty-handed.
  • Tomorrow it’s back to work. UGH.

my thoughts about the amazing spiderman

leave a comment »

  • they weren’t lying
  • i mean i may be biased because ANDREW GARFIELD, but
  • no really it was funny and then it made me yell FUCK when uncle ben died and then  it made me cry (multiple times WHATEVER I’M A BIG BABY AND ALSO ANDREW GARFIELD ALWAYS MAKES ME CRY. the only character he played that didn’t make me cry was the one in doctor who but that’s because i wasn’t paying attention to that episode) and also had the right amount of suspense to make me want a sequel (which there is going to be, so yay)
  • andrew garfield’s smile is probably the key to world peace.
  • rofl spiderman was one cheeky bugger
  • ANDREW GARFIELD’S ASS gives a whole new meaning to cheeky bugger i mean wut who said that
  • also the 3D effects were a+
  • no but seriously ANDREW GARFIELD
  • bonus: THE HOBBBIT TRAILER! IN 3D! the imax tickets were already worth it before the movie even started.

And my life just kept going downhill from there.

When the camera gets crazy(-er)? The hosts had just pointed at K and my ghetto sign and BB waved at us and I flailed like a flaily thing. Sigh, good times.
