Life's Turns

Hello everyone!

How are you all doing? I am sorry I haven't written a post in quite awhile. I just never thought about it or was too busy watching new Korean dramas on Hulu.com. A lot of new things have came up recently; I'm a little surprised! Mind if I update you on my life today? =)

The first thing is I'm moving by April! Not out of the country or anything, but 8 hours away from where I live now (by car). This means I'll have to start my life all over again. A new house, new neighborhood, new church, new friends, and I won't be able to be in my recital this year. =( I feel devastated. Especially after so much money was spent on the recital costumes. I know a lot of people have it worse than me, but I can't help feeling this way. I'll be moving even farther away from my family down in Southern California.

And the thing is, I'll have to still be home schooled. COME ON. So this just sucks and the place I'll be moving to is a small town of 7,300 people. It feels like my life is going to end, but maybe, just maybe, it's for the best! The reason I'm moving is because my dad got a new job, and he's not planning to move again after we move to this new place.

 
Hehe cute picture...

Another thing that is coming up is I have to do a Physical Science project. I've found a lot of cool experiments online that I'd like to do , but dumb dad doesn't like ANY of the ones I mentioned and says they're too easy. So, being a reasonable daughter that I am, I said, "Okay dad, you can look at the website and pick a few out that you like and I can look at them afterwards." He says, "You're the one doing the project, not me! Why do I have to look at them? Pick one out yourself!" =___=

Ugh he pisses me off sometimes! He wants me to pick one out, but he has the most horrible attitude. I wish he just didn't say anything! I always have to meet up to his high expectations. He makes me so stressed out. When I say something, he says "You're too young to be stressed." I'm about to explode because of this guy. Deep breathing Anzu... -_-*

Frustration

Recently, I've been trying to make new things. I've tried to make kettle corn which wasn't successful.. but some bits were okay! Today, I made Canned Tuna Patties and they were really yummy! Most of them didn't turn out as patties because the batter was too liquidy, but I can probably make it better next time. I just saw the video of this cooking tutorial this morning and tried it out. I'm trying to get better at cooking! If you'd like to see what I was trying to make, there's a link below. ^_^


In the time that I have not been blogging, I have finished watching three dramas? Dream High, Dream High 2, You're Beautiful, and now I'm watching Heartstrings. Hulu is now my new best friend. =D I am so hooked to these dramas it's not even funny lol. So I guess if you haven't seen any of these, I'll go ahead and explain what they are about.

1. Dream High
 Southern Koren television drama that features Suzy, Taecyeon, IU, Wooyoung, Ham Eun Jung and Kim Soo-hyun. Six students at Kirin Art High School work to achieve their dreams of becoming stars in the Korean music industry. During the drama, the students learn how to develop their singing, songwriting and dancing skills while also undergoing personal growth. Each one of the students has his or her own strengths and weaknesses, but with the support and guidance of each other, they strive to debut on stage.


2. Dream High 2
A South Korean sequel to popular drama Dream High features actress Kang Sora, alongside 2AM's Jin Woon, T-ara's Ji-yeon, SISTAR's Hyorin, JB, and Park Seo Joon. Dream High 2 follows a group of students at the Kirin Art High School stars who pursue their dream of becoming K-Pop idol stars. The group of students in "Dream High Season 2" deals with a completely new group of students then those that were featured in Season One. In Season Two, after going into financial bankruptcy, the Kirin High School of Art has been taken over by Oz Entertainment. Competition then brews between then troubled students at Kirin High School of Art and then newly transferred in-training idol stars from Oz Entertainments.

3. You're Beautiful

A South Korean drama about a fictional boy band A.N.Jell and the relationship between its members when a female, posing as her twin brother, joins the group. It starred Park Shin-hye, Jang Geun Suk, Lee Hong Ki and Jung Yong Hwa. Go Mi Nyu is a sister-in-training. Her twin brother Go Mi Nam successfully auditions for the musical band A.N.JELL but is forced to leave for the United States to correct a botched plastic surgery. Mi Nyu is approached by Mi Nam's manager to pose as Mi Nam while he recovers. She is against it at first but agrees in order to fulfill her dream of finding their mother. Now, posing as Mi Nam, Mi Nyu enters the group A.N.JELL and meets its members: Hwang Tae Kyung, Kang Shin Woo and Jeremy.



4. Heartstrings (the one I'm watching now)
Heartstrings is a South Korean youthful melodrama about the main characters' love, friendship and dreams, set against the backdrop of an arts university.



 
I hope you guys enjoyed this blog post! Thank you for reading so far! ^_^ Right now I am craving green tea icecream, but I think it'd sound weird if I greeted you as that. Down below is a video of a tutorial on how to make this yummy treat!

 
 
Take care everyone!
 
Love, Anzu xx

Spring's Coming

Woot woot!

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY! Without women, we wouldn't be here right now and babies wouldn't be born. How are you all doing? It is 11:23AM as I type up a new blog post and explore new things on the Internet. Yes, I have no life.. sadly. My blogs are pretty boring, but I'm glad that more people are taking their time to check out my blog. Thank you everyone! =)

Talking about how the Internet, it is really amazing that there is so many people on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter these days. A rave has been going on about the movement Kony 2012. It is about the a leader of the LRA (Lord's Resistance Army), Joseph Kony.

Since yesterday, the YouTube video "Kony 2012" has gone from 150,000 views to almost 37,000,000 views. It has been posted all over the social networks and gone completely viral. When I first saw this video yesterday morning, I cried. It was heartbreaking. Some people says all this is real, that he really is a bad guy. Other people say it's totally fake and a scam. If you ask me, I really don't know. I'm confused by all the articles and videos and it just isn't funny. Let's leave it at that for now.

Here is a link to the video:

So enough of Kony! Are you ready for spring? It is my favorite time of year and the fashion trends are the cutest! This year, according to Bubzbeauty, it is all about pastels. I love spring dresses as usual, but I think they're going to be even prettier this year. =) I love the pretty hairstyles, clothing, and weather that comes with spring! The only downside for me is this is when my allergies kick in. Lots of tissues and allergy medicine! I hope it's not just me.. sigh. -_-



I think the colors are very sweet and girly which is lovely, and I think I can rock this look. ^_^ I need to go shopping again some time! I haven't done so in I don't know how long. If you don't already, I hope you can come to love pastels!

 Friendship Wrap Bracelets are coming back in style and I recently watched a video about how to make these. I think they are so cute and the way anneorshine on YouTube makes them is so creative! She has another DIY video for just regular wrap bracelets (with rhinestones) too. I hope this blog post isn't too short! I have a major brain fart right now; better than nothing I guess lol. Here's the video, thanks for reading!


Take care everyone,

Anzu xx

Ps. Happy Women's Day again!

Pps. Sorry about the brain fart...

Doot Doot Doot...

Hello my sweet apple pies!

Yes, apple pie is what I am craving at the moment! It is the reason why I am sipping on some apple juice... okay random. I was extremely bored so I decided to write up a new blog post. It is currently 9:17PM which is the latest I've ever posted or even thought of posting. I hope you don't mind that I might post this entry tomorrow (March 3, 2012) instead of tonight. I don't know, maybe. I usually go
to sleep early, but not because I want to. I'd pull an all-nighter if I could.


So how is everyone doing? I am doing good! I had a birthday recently so all the congratulating makes me feel special. =) How do you like to spend your birthdays? A special night with your boyfriend/girlfriend, a nice dinner with family, movies with your closest friends, or a wild party with... I don't know. Fail. Well, just make sure it's safe and don't get high or drunk. =P Especially for the ones who are underage. I went out for a fancy dinner with my family, and I got treated out to ice cream. It was nice lol.

Oh, by the way. I ended up not going to my school's Physical Fitness testing because of personal reasons. I'm actually pretty happy that I didn't go, but for some reason I'm bummed out at the same time. At least I didn't have to embarrass myself by running the mile the slowest and experience an epic fail with the push ups. The more that I imagine it in my head, the more I think, "THANK GOD."
-_-'
Macarons

I really wanted to try these French Macarons for my birthday. I have posted a video of a makeup tutorial inspired by them in a previous blog post. Michelle Phan went to Paris and got to taste them herself. I hear they're delicious and they are pretty popular these days. When I told my dad, he thought they were "macaroons" which are American cookies (biscuits I guess?). Oh well! There is a big difference though. They look so cute and I'd love to taste one of these!

I have found an awesome way to get rid of blackheads! I just discovered the tutorial video today, and it is very inexpensive and effective! I have tried it myself and it dries faster than pore strips. This may not work for those with sensitive skin. You can test it on an area of your arm. Here is the link to the video.. sorry if it is not the best quality!

Okay, so I also saw a video today by a girl I subscribed to on YouTube. Her YouTube name is x3Hahah and she posted a video about her [Yumart] Fashion Haul and Review/Giveaway. As I kept watching the video, I realized that the clothes and accessories from http://shopyumart.weebly.com/ are REALLY cute. (Yumart sells authentic Taiwan brand items.) Of course, I'm broke and don't have any money so I decided to enter the giveaway. I hope I win! I fell in love with the website and the stuff that have on there. It is the very first giveaway I've ever entered.. super excited!
 
Recently, I've found a new K-Pop group called Brave Girls. I saw a video on YouTube of them practicing the choreography to their song (one of my favorites) "Do You Know". I will post the video down below and I hope you like this blog post! I'm in love with this choreography. These girls are so amazing, and I wish more and more people will discover their talent!

 

Take care everyone and good night~


I love you all! ^__^ Anzu xx
