Greeting Saturday with a(n Un-)Healthy Dose of BOF!

Greeting Saturday with a(n Un-)Healthy Dose of BOF!

Nothing beats my undying love for K-Dramas. “Boys Over Flowers”, my first drama, my first love, my introduction to the wonderful world of crappy acting and Earth-shattering love. I swear, I’ve never had the Earth shift so violently beneath my feet than when I watch my beautiful K-Dramas.
Where most people love Lee MinHo (with good reason, may I add), my heart lies irrevocably with Kim HyunJoong.
That man.
OMG.
*Fangirl Squealing*
*Ovaries Explode*
I love him, I love him, I looooove hiiiim.
So I’ve been trying to get Chimmercharlie to watch this for a while and now I actually have her watching it legit! I told her to watch BOF over a year ago and she refused. I told her to watch “Death Note” and she refused. A couple of days ago though she changed her mind and watched “Death Note” and seeing as she enjoyed that, I’ve managed to convince her to give BOF another go. If she likes this then I’ll get her to watch “Playful Kiss” next (starring my love, Kim HyunJoong).
See, the beauty of K-Dramas is that it’s not something you just *watch*. To WATCH is not the right verb for when you experience the life-changing thing that is KOREAN DRAMA!
I’ll admit that the acting is astonishingly, phenomenally, fantastically, unbelievably bad. To me, that simply adds to the charm of them. Call me weird, colour me crazy, but K-Dramas have ruled my life since I first encountered them in 2010. I was so resistant to it at first, but then my friend (I’ve known her my entire life- something that’s very rare in an expat community) *finally* convinced me to watch an episode of this at 2 in the morning in Cambodia on a school trip. Nothing else was on so I agreed. It happened to be episode 18 out of 25, therefore it was extremely intense and impossible to NOT finish watching. When I came home the first thing I did was get an account on Maaduu.com and watch ALL of BOF, then do extensive research on my one true Korean love, Kim HyunJoong and track down an english-subbed version of “Playful Kiss”.
CAN’T WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR!! KIM HYUNJOONG’S LATEST DRAMA- “CITY CONQUEST”- COMES OUT!!
Furthermore, I think I will cry at least 9 times before this very first episode is over. Seeing as we plan to have an all nighter to watch as many episodes as we watch before she goes home, I suspect this will only be the start of draining my tear-ducts. Oh well, it’s so amazing that I don’t really care how much I cry or how unattractive I’ll look tomorrow, I just want to watch ALL THE K-DRAMAS! And lust of Kim HyunJoong’s gorgeous face. *drool*

Death Note Marathon… and Pizza

Death Note Marathon... and Pizza

So I had two of my girlies over to watch all three “Death Notes” (Well, the two “Death Notes” and the L spin-off). I swear I cried a bajillion times. These movies are sooooo good! Ok, they portray criminals in a very black and white way and so it’s impossible to empathise with them, but watching Light disintegrate into what he despises is *nearly* heartbreaking. What IS heartbreaking though, well- what broke my heart into a million billion pieces to watch, is L. I swear if I ever meet a man like L I’d marry him on the spot, PROPOSE to him even! L is amazing. So amazing… *sob*

Library Put up the Christmas Tree

ImageYou know shit be getting be getting real when the librarians have put up the Christmas Tree! My family won’t be in Singapore for Christmas Day so we’re not putting up our tree tomorrow as we normally would, instead we have this tiny ass (it’s seriously about 40cm tall) mini plastic Christmas Tree… I don’t think we have any decorations that will fit on it… oh well, we’ll make it work! 😛

What else is there to say?

Oh yeah! This time last week I got stood up. Ha! True story. I guess the whole thing was a bit dodgy from the start… it was supposed to be a “blind date” with this guy I’ve been chatting to online for over a year now. But he cancelled last minute… oh well 😛

Wow, whoops I didn’t post this… now it’s like… 9 hours later. Oh dear.

TGIF!!

Thank God It’s Friday! Today is going really well! I’ve missed English and TOK! Now I’m in Chemistry, just got my highest score yet on the last test! How exciting! It’s the last day of November and all through the school there’s this sense of anticipation, only 10 more wake-ups until holidays! On top of only having one class today (Friday is my best day, I don’t have a period 5 today!), that being Chemistry, I made Mr. Asshole feel guilty about yesterday and he apologised  I’m on a bit of a high right now!

“Death Note” marathon later tonight! Woop, woop!

Last Post For Tonight!

Thursday is nearly over! Thank goodness, not a moment too soon! Have to cut 15 words out of one essay, then submit it to TurnItIn then I can sleep! Half hour sleep in tomorrow thanks to the doctors! Gotta count your blessings! 😀

Going to be missing English and PSHCE, what a loss… not. Don’t get me wrong, I love school, I really, really do. I live to study, learning is a passion of mine, but if I had to see Mr. Asshole for an entire hour and a bit tomorrow I think I’d have to punch something… or him so:

ImageI’m pretty sure my posts are getting inane now so I really should go and just finish tonight’s work and go to bed. Bed sounds really nice. Knowing me though, I’ll procrastinate (IB kids put the PRO in PROcrastinate haha) and wait until nearly 3am before I pass out on my bed. I just don’t have the endurance I used to! Once upon a time, staying up until 2am was natural, for some reason it’s now becoming a struggle… I guess turning 18 has really hit me hard, haha.

I have to bring in all my Movember donation moneys tomorrow…. and money for the Leavers Hoodies/Sweaters! I’m already so far under broke from putting all my spare cash into this Greece endeavor that I don’t have the money to pay charities, pay for Panto props or for my friend’s birthday party this weekend.

*Sigh*

I’ll have to find a way to make this work… and I will, I’m an IB student for crying out loud!

Before I go, I just want to put up these last edits I made, these are more blog-centric than anything else and so are a bit out of place. OH WELL! 😀

Five Months Left To Go...

IB EXAMS ARE IN MAY! I’m so close to the end I just want to be done with all this already!
Sorry- I took and edited a lot of photos today, so brace yourselves… more are coming (Y)
