Just receive my paid account for a whole year, yeah. First time I ever brought time for myself ever and I'm all excited for more icons. Wednesday and Thursday is my last days to work at Tensar. Researching and thinking about application process for school is driving my ass wild. I'm freaking out. I don't know what to do and I'm totally out of it.

Sunday at work I was melting, I didn't know I could sweat like that. I'm not even going to tell what the temperature I was working in just hot to never work in that condition again in my life; glad my time is almost over. Nervous to get another job though.

Post new recs and upload whole bunch of account on my other account. About to change my mood theme once I upload the photos.

My mom and sister bought me Circle of Fire by Michelle Zink and The Great Gatsby (One of my favorites).

I think I'm going to buy myself a Kindle, but I should save for school, tough decisions.

RL: I'm tired very tired. I can't sleep and I'm trying to keep my mind occupied. I feel ill and I'm in crappy mood. My grandmother had to go back to the hospital because of congestive heart failure. (Last Friday we had to take to the ER, we thought it was just an asthma attack.) This will be the third day that she is in ICU.

I'm trying to stay positive. I'm upset that she didn't say anything about her discomfort. My aunt wants to come visit her, as if she truly cares. She was the one that should have taken care of her in Florida but now you care about your mother's health since she is not your responsibilities anymore. My mom told her that their mom is fine you don't need to waste your money. (Not exactly in those words and it's ironic that my tia will take a plane since she is notoriously cheap.)

Everyone but my sister is sick. Ugh!

Books: Last Saturday I got to meet Michelle Zink and was such a nice person to meet. I was totally shy but I usually like that with any new people. I got my copy of Guardian of the Gate sign and got some awesome bookmarks. At the Barnes & Noble I bought The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins paperback so I can reread the story again. Jealous that my sister bought Karakuridôji Ultimo: Volume One by Hiroyuki Takei. (It think it the only manga that I want to read more of even if its get ridiculous.)

BFFS: After the book signing and eating awesome food at Pollo Campero, my sister and I got drop off to hang out with our best friend Amber. I love hanging out with her, in her apartment goofing off and relaxing. We talk ridiculous shit and learn more things about each other. I miss seeing all of my friends at regular intervals; they totally lift my spirits up.

I'm looking for a face to attack. It could be there, a kiss and you're licked. You will not know because I'm laid back. So watch yourself, I come with a smack.

Damn it has been a while since I wrote or even check my dreamwidth (my livejournal too). The only social networking sites I check on my phone are Goodreads and Twitter and sometimes check on my Facebook. (Mobile web is not my preference of lurking so I don't.) Anybody on twitter? You can follow me if you active on it. :)

I'm going to try to update every Friday to get back into the swing of using this journal. I'm practicing my horrible spoken Spanish on my grandma.

Annoyance: My grandmother has been living with us for several weeks now and I want to kill her. She moves things around too much that its becoming a inconvenience to us (her medicines; the trash bag) and herself and she watches TV too much (and the volume is always loud). Then again, this week I had my period so my mood was horrible and anything annoy me.

Suckage is that my grandma is not able to see the doctor until her insurance card comes and she really needs to see one. Both of my parents are sick, but my dad is being in denial. I feel bad for my mom, giving her lots of hugs.

Computer Trouble: Drama I don't want to talk about it. My laptop is perfectly fine though.

Books: In July, I read four books and in August, I read nine books. I made shiny new read-book-list post. I may start posting book reviews on this journal and work on my English writing skills. (I have no idea where to start though.) Currently reading Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld (My dad bought me this book on my birthday but now in storage so I have to check it out of the library.)

Recs: I have been reading fic but I won't be posing any more recs on this journal. I'm using delicious to keep this journal from cluttering. Here is my July Recs and my August Recs.

I been listening to new music and you can find what is at my Last.fm. (New for me: VV Brown, Hot Chip, and The Knife)

I have never realized how much my mother knows my sister and me. My mom is the best, yo. Last weekend went to the flea market and spend nine dollars for four books (two for my sister and two for me) and Kurt Cobain lunchbox (that my mom saw and told me to get it). I can't wait to go back and get some more used books.

This Saturday going to Barnes & Noble Alpharetta store (76 mile trip north) to go to see Michelle Zink with my sister to get our books sign. We are excited since this our first book signing also going to stop by for the Decatur Book Festival. We going to drag our best friend Amber with us and celebrate her 21st birthday. (I want to go to Dragon-Con so bad maybe next Labor Day Weekend.)

My sister is nice, she made me a icon.

Monday, has not been a good day. I’m sick, in the feverish, achy kind of way. I don’t know if I still have a fever but I had a high temperature since this morning. The weather is not helping either, the high pressure made the joints in my feet ache. My stomach hurts and I so don’t want to eat. Also, I don't want it to be summer right now. The heat & the humidity seem to make me ill.

I think I should stop eating spicy food, too since I had heartburn when I woke up this morning.

Sunday, I had a good time at my mom’s best friend church. Too bad the church is in Stone Mountain and not closer to home for me to go regularly.

Films/Series/etc. I want to see: From the Earth to the Moon, a HBO mini-series. The Harry Palmer films, which stars Michael Caine. Cast a Deadly Spell, H.P. Lovecraft-ese HBO film. BSB will be in Atlanta on 6/3, I so want to go.

Sequels to books I want to read: Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl (10/26/2010), sequel to Beautiful Creatures. Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick (?), sequel to hush, hush. Torment by Lauren Kate (09/28/2010), sequel to Fallen. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, sequel to The Hunger Games.

My sister first post, about why you should watch Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam/Straight from the Heart.

I better get some sleep.

I did some clean up in this journal, delete entries I deem unimportant and useless. Fix videos links and still working on fixing download links. Most entries in this journal are recs but hopefully will end up with entries fill with my self-expression and personal endeavors. I don't what to make any entries private. I don't feel like I have to hide my self.

I'm so OCD about organizing things be it tags, something about clutter that seem to get to me, especially when I paying the least amount of attention.

♣ I watch I'ma Be Me, Wanda Sykes HBO special, yesterday and I'm loving it. She just fabulous and still undecided on watching her show late-night talk show. I don't watch tv much anymore since nothing seem to catch my attention.

♣ Just watch Just Wright, a movie that going to star Queen Latifah and Common, and I can't wait for this movie to come out. Common is so fucking hot in this move, Queen Latifah is looking fine in this film too and they seem to have chemistry in the movie. I don’t even know when it coming out.

♣ My sister and I can wait to see Aladin. We love cheesy, bad movie it our crack.

Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton, I still love this novel, it gets to me and never met anyone that every read it or hadn't enjoy it like I had. I still haven't read The Age of Innocence & The House of Mirth, but eventually I will read them.

♣ I feel the need to pimp this great podcast I’m listening to called Better in the Dark. The guys, Thomas Deja and Derrick Ferguson, are seriously funny and knowledgeable about movies, comics, and various other things. I learn about various movie genres and wishing I got Netflix so I can watch some of movies they discuss about. Seriously, guys check them out.

My mother really likes to buy a lot of cookbooks. I made this assumptions since today another package from amazon.com came to the house today. This time an Italian cookbook. (First package was a cupcake cookbook and a cookbook on cooking meals for two.) I think that meant to be a gift for my father since my mom doesn’t eat any type of food outside the characteristics of Puerto Rican cooking.

My mom is going to come home from Afghanistan soon. I don’t know what state of mind she will be once she comes back. I wish we don’t have this war going gone. Makes me angsty thinking about what my mom is going through and that she be upsets with me when she comes back. (I will totally fail to receive the best daughter of the year award.)

My sister and I went to the bookstore and spilt the cost to buys some books. I’m now the proud owner of Gunslinger by Stephen King (My sister tells me it was great.) and Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey (I‘m going to take this as a vampire romance spoof.).

I also check out the first two book of The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. So far the first book is keeping my attention.

Also did the US Census, Hispanic/Latino is not a race so my dad told me to put white for him, he has no Asian or African in him and my mom well she gets to pick for herself.

I put my sister and I under white too and under two Hispanic origins. (Funny note: People think my sister and I are twins at times but they think she half black/white. Me more Asian looking.) (LOL I always laugh when people think we look a like. We don’t have actually have lots of share features.)

I think I’m finally done tinkering with my layout. Still have old recs post to up. I hate working with html at times.

My New Stuff )

I'm tired from lack of proper sleep and I feel sick.

This is me being random: Seriously how much of the Beatles can I listen to at a time? I don't know their music makes me happy but not like the Beach Boys. I must never have mention that I really like the Beach Boys. It just my type of pop music. I just got into the Beatles, I been listening to their albums. My favorite is Help! at this very moment. I have lots to said about the Beatles but I don't want to bored anyone.

Seriously I think I'm going through a weird musical journey and have no idea where I'm going to stop for the day.

Today, I was listening to Fall Out Boy nonstop.

I'm in love with Juan Son, at this very moment. Listen to the song, this a fair warning the music is experimental but very catchy. He from Guadalajara, Mexico and think he really sexy.

His Face )

LISTEN to Mermaid Sashimi – Juan Son

Lyrics )

I think I need to eat some chicken soup.

I feel like I’m at a weird place when dealing with the internet. I don’t what to do with myself and I don’t feel like writing about my life. I usually have an all right ability to write about my daily life but I feel like I’m in a bubble, about to go into cabin fever.

Amazon.com best place for me to shop online but I hate reading the reviews. Just is get me upset and not only on things I like in the store. I should never read any online reviews unless it a blog I trust.

For a week and half I’m been listening to massive amount of the Beatles, I don’t know why, and it the first time I listen to any of their albums. They make really good pop songs. I don’t have a favorite album at the moment.

It is weird that I only listen to Christmas songs on the radio and have two or three in my music library.

Also, I don’t think anyone on the internet will know my opinions on anything unless they call me. I have lots of thoughts on many subjects and only my family gets to hear it. I’m glad that I can talk about anything with my family because I hate to upset anyone with my views. Also, I feel too young to understand the world. I’m not worldly, still pretty shelter, and think I need some time to truly understand me.

I’m about to be nineteen in a few days and I feel sick in body & mind.

I bought Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld and check out from the library: The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, The Last Apprentice Book One: Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney, and Stranger in a Strange Land (Original Uncut) by Robert A. Heinlein

PS. Do anyone of you ever been in the mood to just say 'fuck you world' for messing with your head?

Look I won a book at Wondrous Reads. (I love how Jenny writes her blog. One of the only place I look to see upcoming YA book titles.)

I been waiting to read Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and I can't wait.

I love stories about angels, fallen or otherwise, because they are so much fun to read about the mythology. Gosh, I’m almost nineteen years old and still in love with YA/Children section of the library. I don't know if I will grow out of it. Reading adults books just doesn’t make any emotional connection to me. Also, the lack of racial diversity in some books is appalling.

Another awesome blog that found via post secret is 1000 Awesome Things. The recent entry is #630 The moment after you wake up from a nightmare and suddenly realize it was all just a dream

Two days ago, my copy of The Dream Merchant arrive in my mail. I'm so happy to re-read this book again. The book is brilliant, the characters are diverse, the plot is massive, and it a really awesome cracky fantasy epic. (I'm reading some of the reviews on Goods Read that say that this book is horrid make me sad. The book is a translation, it has some rough patches but I think that more to do with the difference in language.)

Twilight is horrible English, read the Spanish version and I laugh so hard.

I also read Shaman King volume 19-24 and I’m continuing to read the rest of the series. I miss reading this manga series. The story and art are not perfect but the characters especially Manta makes me want to read more. I’m sad that near the end of the series I don’t get to see much of him. Some people called him annoying but I like him for being non-shaman.

I don't know why I feel so tired at the moment and I been sleeping fine. Well for Thanksgiving, I will be in Florida and again I will be cooking the dinner. Well no one is going to do it.

Question, did anyone went to still New Moon yesterday, or plan to go see it in theaters? Did any of you like the movie version?
crisporres: (reality → piper perabo)
Gosh, I haven’t post in a while. I’m feeling horrible; my face is like dry & red, probably an allergic reaction. I don’t know what to do with it.

I’m been reading The Dream Merchant by Isabel Hoving, the book is translated from Dutch. It very long read (over 600 pages) and good enough to distract me away from the computer.

Saturday, my dad took me out to eat at the Chinese restaurant near the train tracks. It was delicious, a bit salty, but it was great. It makes me sad that there are not enough good Chinese places around my area.

I think Monday was a great day. I slept in, which is always awesome, and my dad made me drive. We went out to eat at Olive Garden (2-1) and went to Marble Slab Creamery (3-0) for desert.

I always have fun shopping with my dad. I realize that without my mom in the house, we vote like a democracy. I like that my dad listen to me about my views & opinions of the world. Like I think human beings take for granted that we are human beings. We should be able to use our big brains and not act like animals.

I’m in a weird state. My sister was like amaze that I could rant about three things that tick me off at one time. I actually felt like I was on my period because I was so angry that I feel like I need to voice my thoughts.

Five things that make me rant @ home bc I’m nice: Science, Politics, Religion, YA Books (was Anime/Manga) & Gender. Really, I will never try to rant in this journal. One of the reasons is that I don’t want to offend anyone and the second is that I feel better speaking then writing.

I rather have a discussion over the phone then the internet, even though I hate talking on the phone.

Also bought my mom some stuff for her birthday. Also I'm going to my uncle's house to give him a cake on his birthday. We also got him a Hoops & YoYo.

Also got a Thanksgiving theme Hoops & YoYo card for my friend Ailsa. I miss my best friend. I love my other friends but she the only one that let me have pseudo-intellectual conversation.

I really enjoy Lily Allen new music videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWjNFC-FinU
Also I like her 1970's wig in "Not Fair".
crisporres: ([stock] sleep)
I have a fun time over the weekend at my friend Amber's place. Athena & Amber got me to watch the first season of True Blood. That show is serious crack and probably my favorite lmao show. It has everything you can think of and maybe I download the second season. Lafayette, Tara, & Sam are my favorite characters. I like to point out that the True Blood opening is all kinds of awesome. The song is great too. So here a download of the song.


Favorite part of White Collar 1.01.


Going to watch the second episode tonight hopefully.

Remember Counting Games. I still use them to day to figure out what to choose at anything. Great place to get Quotes for Writers. Nice Prompt Generator to get off a writer's block. A great thing to send to friends, give Blog Awards. For any of my writer's friends that need a pick up read about Famous Rejections. My favorite blog to find about new books in the young adult book world (UK & US), go read cityofbooks.

Here some links to artists I like to buy pieces from if I had money.
Oliver and the Elder.
Travis Louie.
Audrey Kawasaki.

Article that better describe my feeling on the Twilight Saga. First two was okay.

I don't know I think I'm the love to hate this series. My sister & I already found books that are way better than Twilight. I like to pimp Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink. Omg this book is my favorite for this year.

Day Three (totally miss because i went out and fall asleep when i got home.)

Excerpt: I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Constantin and Socrates and Attila and a pack of other lovers with queer names and offbeat professions, and another fig was an Olympic lady crew champion, and beyond and above these figs were many more figs I couldn't quite make out. I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn't make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet.

~Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar, Chapter 7

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath may have been written almost forty years ago but it still feel relevant. This is very semi-autobiographical account of Sylvia Plath who suffer from clinical depression during college.

Spend way too much time over here.
