New Year’s Eve.

December 31, 2008

Whoo, are you guys excited?

A year is about to end, and another is about to begin. It’s about time that we forget all the bad stuff from the old year, and move on with the new one….

Fireworks are so pretty, don’t you think? First, they are like shooting stars, then, with a blink of an eye, they transform into flowers. Beautiful, brilliant, and dazzling…yep, that are  fireworks for you.

I hope my life could be like those blinding and colorful lights. It would be such an excitement to live that way.

I wish you all a fantastic 2009! Remember to make a wish at 12:00 AM…it might come true. 😉


Ouch.

December 29, 2008

Yesterday was a pretty sucky day.

I went to the park with my family yesterday. It was pretty chilly, but the air felt really nice. Kids were laughing and a lot of people were walking their dogs. My dad and little brother decided to play some basketball so I decided to join for a game. After winning, (I think they went easy on me) I decided to play on the playground.

Bad decision, a really, really bad decision.

The playground consisted of slides, poles, and twisty paths for kids to climb. At the top, there was this spot where you could sit and watch what’s happening down below. I decided that it would be fun to climb up there and wave to my mom. Yeah, I’m childish like that. So after a couple of waves, my mom decided that I should get down. Here’s where the problem started: I, stupidly enough, decided on a shortcut.

I figured if I go diagonally and cut my way across, I can skip the whole twisty stairs and climb down faster. At about halfway, I decided to stop and let this kid pass. Looking around, I decided if I jump, I could make it down safely.

Hahaha, gravity laughed at ChocoPuddi.

Well, it all happened so fast that I couldn’t really prepare. When I tried to jump, my foot slipped. That caused me to fall forward. Frantically, I tried to grab on to a near by bar but I missed by a little bit.

The result? Me falling down head first to the sand.

Ouch indeed.

The kids at the play ground were freaked out at that moment, and I think one cried. When my mom helped me up, I tasted blood and my lips were numb. My mom panicked and she rushed me home so she could examine the wound. She said my lips were bruised but otherwise still in one piece. I guess she sort of freaked out when I fall flat on my face. She thought that I broke my teeth the way that I was bleeding from my mouth. While washing my face, I realized that I have this dull pain in my arm. It wasn’t broken or anything, but I guess I landed on it a bit to hard. I decided to forget the pain by taking a short nap. I slept from 12 PM to 4 PM so I guess it wasn’t that short.

I reckon I should be more careful while playing from now on. My parents think that I should stay away from playgrounds all together. They told me that I could have broken bones, my nose, or my teeth the way that I was falling and I almost gave them a heart attack. I said that I was ok and nothing was broken so it was fine. I think they thought I was lying so they won’t be worried. Well, I do look pretty bad yesterday, with my swollen lips and all. My mom decided that I shouldn’t talk at all and that I should go to bed and rest. She also made some rice gruel for me to eat instead of rice. So the rest of my day was spent in bed reading, eating rice gruel and listening to my mom fussing over me. Ok, I admit that I did like being fussed over, but I felt really bad for worrying her like that. I should take my parents’ advice about avoiding playgrounds after all.

Ahhh, hopefully the swelling will go down in time for me to go back to school. I don’t want to walk around looking like I just got in a fight with somebody and got punched in the mouth. D:

Come on, people landed on the moon, discovered cells, invented the computer…ect ect but did they discover the cure for the common cold? Sadly no. >_<

Now excuse me while I get myself a blanket…


Movies

December 14, 2008

So my friend invited me to her house for a movie party in celebration for that Bio quiz we both aced.

Anddd…

She has such awesome movies (and popcorn, and soda, and chips)! We watched two movies that evening, Dead Poet Society and Freedom Writers. Both are very inspirational movies by the way. My favorite is Freedom Writer.

It’s about a teacher that has to teach a class of students that are gangster-like and is rumored to be bringing the school’s reputation down. Well, at a first glance, they do look that way but as the movie progress, it’s reveal that they have sad pasts and are having trouble coping with lives. The movie revolves about the teacher, Mrs. Erin, and her struggles to earn respect of the class room. The movie is deep, and it makes you think about the situation of the each of the characters and what would you do if you was in that same situation. What would you do, confess the truth or lie for your friends? Would you be loyal to your friends until the end, even though you know you are hanging with the wrong crowd? Would you show favoritism toward your own race when a life is at stake? Gosh, there’s so much to think about.  The movie is also educational at the same time. It gave facts about the Holocaust and has a part where the people in the Holocaust talk about their experience of the tragedy. Heck, At the end of the movie, my friend even pulled out her laptop and researched about the Holocaust and the real life Freedom Writers.

Dead Poet Society is very deep and depressing. It’s about an all boy private school that’s really, really strict. The teacher, Mr. Keating was determined to change the student’s view about life and literature. Hmm…now that I think about it, it is sort of similar to Freedom Writers. He made the students rip out pages from textbooks (poor books!) and stand on tables. Of course, Mr. Keating’s way of teaching was considered unorthodox by the principle, and the principle decided to fire him…not before the students views about themself and literature changed though. Gosh, the movie was also movie at the same time too, my friend and I sniffled and went teary like the emotional people that we are.You know the best part about this movie? The quotes! They are so awesome. Here are some quotes for you guys:

“Listen, you hear it? – – Carpe – – hear it? – – Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.”

“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion.”

“That you are here – that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?”

…and a funny one:

“You can feel it. This desk set wants to fly!”

Carpe diem guys, carpe diem. Live to the max, live like you only have one day left. If you have a dream, go for it. No reason to hesitate. A moment of hesitation means a wasted chance. Go crazy and shoot for the moon or something…if you miss, you’ll land among the stars…or those fluffy looking clouds. 😉

…And this all is coming from a procrastinator/ lazy bum/ unmotivated person. Yay?
