Yeah, then I told her I'm interested in Elementary Korean stage 2, as well as pop guitar lesson stage 1. Hopefully, they start lesson here soon!

*我讨厌这个金钱世界!!!*


Finished reading "Memoirs Of A Teenage Amnesiac", by Gabriella Zevin. It was quite a pleasant teenage romance novel. Will and Naomi ended up together, just as I guessed. But honestly, I think I'm most attracted to James... even though he's sort of nuts in the head haha. Well, I know it was gg to be all about Naomi, but somehow I wanted to read more about James. This guy's way too mysterious... I mean... is all that's mentioned about him, true, in the story? Nt much elaboration on it though. Can't wait to see Ken 'ichi Matsuyama portraying James in the movie! The scent of mysterious aura surrounding him (due to the success of the character "L") seemed to have make him fit the role almost perfectly haha. The unique thing about the novel is that Gabriella Zevin used songs (Will loved to make song lists for Naomi, burned them into CDs... while each song had its significance.) in her writing... that introduced more songs to me haha. Quoted some from an interview online...

[The book takes place in 2004-2005. So, by now, Naomi would be in college, and the following mix is one she makes for herself to remind her of that crazy year when she was in love with three boys and had amnesia.

Part the First: Songs for Will

“Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) – Arcade Fire
“Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots” – The Flaming Lips
“A Certain Romance” – Arctic Monkeys

Part the Second: Songs for James
“First Day of My Life” – Bright Eyes
“Vindicated” – Dashboard Confessional
“Angeles” – Elliot Smith
“World Spins Madly On” – The Weepies


Part the Third: Songs for Ace

“Wigwam” – Bob Dylan
“Ripchord” – Rilo Kiley
“Better Man” – Pearl Jam

Part the Fourth: Songs for Myself
“Foux de Fa Fa” – Flight of the Conchords (in honor of Naomi’s French class)
“Life on Mars?” – David Bowie (“Changes” can be substituted here.)
“1979” – Smashing Pumpkins
“That’s the Story of My Life” – The Velvet Underground
“Your Ex-Lover is Dead” – Stars]

They are only "parts"... meaning gt loads more... yeah mentioned in the book. Haha... I would go look them up when I'm free!

Found a very funny vid of E.P.I.K High singing to DBSK's "Mirotic"! The members were celebrating Mithra's bday... and man the 2 really gt karaoke standard sia~ But I tot the way Tablo yelled "ba-chor!", "mi-chor~~" was hilarious haha. Mithra ah... he wanted to cover his face ba lol. The use of the musical instrument by Tablo was quite creative though~


*Work ending in early March. Okie nw wat's the nex step? I'm confused.*
