Quote of the Day: Hormonal

me: Before we entered the Dojo, an Asian guy took off his shirt.It took my everything not to stare at him. But but he was toned, tanned, and smooth. He had pecks and i think i hallucinated some abs on him.
her: so hormonal...
me:  I looked away though, but I couldn't stop smiling like a little perverted idiot
her: What the heck is wrong with you? did you say this to anybody?
her: good!

Last Day of Karate (winter semester 2014)


I went volunteering in the morning, then I went back home to eat lunch and at 3:00 I met up with Revi to wrap the senseis' gifts. We got them Peeps and a lindt chocolate each. You see, our main sensei raises chickens for shows and we though a peep would be appropriate for her!


We also signed thank you cards, then headed to our karate class. man, karate was a lot of fun. Sensei made us hold two cups of water and do kicks with them, so we would not move our hands from in front of us since some of us lose control of their arms or something. She then told us whoever drops water has to get into plank position and wipe it with the tissues a la Miyagi style (three sweeps right, three sweeps left). It was so hard to hold them, kick and not laugh at the same time.

Afterwards we went out to eat at Relish ( a burger place). I had my very first veggie burger, and I do not know what I was expecting, but it did NOT taste good. It was like mushy fried peas. Oh well!
Oh, also our sensei gave us chocolates too. She gave everybody lindt chocolates because it was our last karate class together at this gym.
However, Travis came up to me and told me that the Nationals for karate will be in Quebec next year, and asked me if I want to go. I told him I'll think about it. He said that we will drive there, it's only a one day trip. I don't know if I should travel alone with two men, it's nothing I've ever done before. It's quiet risky, I do trust them, but still. If something were to happen to me there, they have to take complete responsibility over me. Hmm, I'll consult my parents.

I was also asked to join the other dojo during the summer. I really would love to, I mean I already know my next kata, but I have summer classes in May then I'm going to be in Kuwait in June and July, so that leaves only August to practice in. How good can that be? Actually, I already know the kata by heart, and the other moves will not be that different. I think if I also practice a bit in Kuwait, and go there on Saturdays (it's on Saturdays and Mondays) in May, I can do it.

I'm insane! I always manage to find ways to make my life harder or busier. However, right now, this week. I am NOT busy. So, I will try to do the laundry tomorrow, cook the food and clean the kitchen. My sister is busy, so I should help more than that! I need to bring my A game!

On another note, it snowed today!


Pray for me,

I took the 20 (bus) towards Scotia Square at 11 this morning. I went there to meet up with "Justin" and "Revi". We walked all the way to Tim Horton's down at the waterfront. It was so odd, this feeling of complete freedom. It felt like I was a caged bird who has just stepped out of it's prison. Suddenly, there was light and colour. I spaced out as we walked, I spaced out into the sky for a while and then by my unfamiliar surroundings through the path "Revi" took us in. It's a nice feeling not having to stress over anything. I hope such feelings last.
But alas, they will not. May is in a week, and my summer course will start then. I can already feel my chest clenching with anxiety.

After we ate at Tim's and walked along the waterfront, we headed back to the bus station. They left for another mall, while I went to the superstore to buy some groceries and then meet up with my sister to eat outside. My sister was still busy with her friend, buying groceries too, and so we missed the lunch menu...and I was also locked out of the apartment because our sublet had my key. My sister called Jim, the super attendant , and he opened the door for me about half an hour later. What an ass...

I went inside and; as I have previously stated, we missed the lunch menu; which we had a groupon offer on, by the time my sister arrived home. So, we ate leftovers.
I also ate two cookies and three/four tim bits, making me a total fat ass.

Tomorrow, I need to buy Peeps (marshmellows) for my sensei, and return a book, borrow a book, and go to karate. I missed karate, I haven't been there in at least a week because of my exams.

Good night,

Finals Finale

"Oh, I'm so sick of studying, so tired of books.
      So sick of worrying 'bout how my GPA will look."

BUT! At last! My finals were over 8:10 pm I was done with my last exam. Oh, what a relief.

I went to school at 8:00 am, took my Cell Bio exam at 9:00 am and was the last to leave at noon. I wanted to thank the professor in person for sending me the email that said: "You did an excellent job on your paper." Instead, I awkwardly said "bye".
I was so dizzy though, I felt like I was swaying, but I wasn't. I just couldn't maintain walking in a straight line for some reason. I guess I was experiencing "Vertigo". I bought a combo meal at Tims; a small mocha, chicken sandwich, and a blueberry muffin. I rolled up the rim and I WON! I won a small coffee or latte. hehe. After I was done with my coffee, the world kept on spinning. It felt like I just got off the spinning teacups and the floor kept moving. That was kinda fun. I then studied for psychology, my next exam. At 7:00 pm, my exam started and it was hilarious. I had one question asking something like this "... In Appearance Anxiety; the fear of being judged for one's physical looks, who usually has it the most. ____ experience it more than ____"
and the options were, and I shit you not, the following:
a) Werewolves more than vampires
b) men more than women
c) women more than men
d) smurfs more than ninja turtles


Now I'm calculating my GPA to see what in God's name must I get to receive a scholarship next year.
So far, I have A- for genetics, and B- for cell physiology.
I'm almost certain I have an A+ for psychology, which means I need at least A- for both astronomy and Cell biology in order to get the scholarship.
That chance is very slim though...seeing as I think I failed my Astronomy final exam.

Pray for me,

Kuroshitsuji (manga)

I should be studying for my finals but instead, I will make this one quick post.

Favorite picture of Ciel Phantomhive

         I just read
Kuroshitsuji and my, oh my, what a beautiful manga. I never knew what a great manga it was! It had everything I desire in stories; strong stable unique characters, a great focused plot, dark ambiance, anguish, tragic pasts and continuous mental and physical suffering of the main/ favorite character. Yet, some light random humorous moments to lift the spirits. It also had glorious drawings, which is a bonus. Something else I loved was it was unpredictable, it had NO CLICHES; there were several surprises here and there which added to the thrill of it all. All these thoughts ran through my man as I was reading the manga,  "This person got stabbed? that person is seriously ill, that person can actually kick ass?! I knew that person was the murderer all along, but wait...what's that?!" and finally "How will they get out of this one now?!"

The more they did that pose, the funnier it got.
         For those who never heard of Kuroshitsuji, AKA Black Butler. It is a story that revolves around a child; Ciel, of a wealthy, prestigious family of England; The Phanomhive, in the 18th century. This child's family was killed at the age of ten and then he was kidnapped for a month by some nobles in which he was tortured and starved. As a last attempt for help, he unconsciously summoned a demon that night and to gain the demon's powers he made a contract with him. Ciel; the earl of England and the Queen's watch dog, traded his vengeful soul in return for power so that he can take revenge on the people who were behind this tragedy. The demon became "one hell of a butler" as a disguise and mean to be at his master's side and aid until the day he gets to devour his soul.
 The readers/ watchers already know this wont end well, and we already know Ciel is not exactly "the good guy"...or "the villain". I suppose the little anti-hero is willing to do anything for revenge. Huh, he sounds a little bit like Sasuke now. I wonder if a Naruto will come to save him!

        How do I say this? I hated Kuroshitsuji; the anime. I watched it in 2007 or so, and then I watched part two in around 2010 or 2009 and I thought it had the dumbest plot. The idea of a demon butler serving this child, was new and interesting and I loved the artwork. However, I hated how nothing made sense in the anime. They showed some flashbacks, but it didn't make any sense. They just ...flashed! and I knew Ciel was in anguish and was looking for the murderers of his parents, but it didn't make any sense. The episode of the Queen was creepy and didn't help one bit. And in the end (spoiler) he should've just died because Sebastian ate his ...why did he become a demon? (spoiler ends) Plus all the characters like Grell, Lady Red, Lao and Elizabeth were so annoying. The amount of fan girls this thing has was annoying, the name pronunciation was the most annoying "seiaru", and "erizabet", pfft! Nothing made sense; it was all for the fan service, is what I thought. I thought this anime is hinting at some perverted pedophilia yaoi fan service just like "Loveless" was doing and I don't like it! The ending was the most confusing, or at least that's what I remember! It was years ago after all.

Season two made no sense, why was ciel even alive, and why was sebastian still chasing after him? ._. and that poor little blondie..I think I watched season two for the abused blondie...NO! back to the point.

I never even considered reading the manga, especially after I watched such a horrible anime version of it....until I was searching for "manga slave" (yes, I'm weird) and came across this picture:

Ciel's slave mark revealed
       That picture took my breath away. Someone trying desperately to hide a slave mark, but he is forced to show it. oooh, how I longed to see the reactions that followed after and I was not disappointed when I did. I was confused to know that that person was in fact Ciel Phantomhive, and that there seems to be this Freckles person tugging at his shirt. "Wait, when was ciel a slave?" I thought. And "I don't recall a Freckles". That's why I started reading the manga. I loved how twisted everything is, how afraid Ciel is, and how uncaring Sebastian really is. I also really loved Sebastian's perspective of the events. "...but he would wake up every night, regardless of the racket. Haunted by nightmares, he would wake up screaming."

Petrified Ciel

        The manga is amazing. It makes perfect sense, and every once in a while it tugs you back to that wretched feeling of guilty pleasure at the sight of a small suffering Ciel in one of his flashbacks. And what was even better, is that it's all PTSD that he is suffering currently that makes it all the more beautiful. The way Ciel clings to his blanket, like a child refusing anything but sweetened milk, as opposing to his composed elegant self. AUGH! It makes me want to read more.

but alas, I've hit the stump. I finished reading chapter 91 and they update on a monthly basis. How depressing.

I've even gotten a tad bit obsessed to the point that I've saved a picture of him as a screen saver and doodled it in less than 10 minutes:
Ciel Sketch #1

I admit, it's not my best work...but only because he is not proportionate! I'll sketch a better one later.

I can't wait to see where this will go..
"How beautiful and foolish..." ciel is... By far, my favorite anti-hero.



Ciel Sketch #2

A better sketch of Ciel, however, he still doesn't look quite right. He needs to look thinner. This round face makes him look even younger.

Hal-Con 2013 Cosplay

I just realized that I made a little promise in a previous Post that when I get a follower, I will be posting the cosplay pictures of 2013.

Since I got one now, enjoy:
The gorgeous line we waited (not even half)

A storm trooper
A troll, right?

I don't even know, I just thought he was cute
 This creepy couple kept holding a poker face. It's very unclear, but the woman has a cosplay as if her face was peeled off and so she's holding the face in one hand and a doll baby in the other hand. In this picture she was caressing her partner's torso as he stared off in space.
The Creepy Couple 
This cosplay was simple, and looked cheap. YET IT SUITED HIM SO WELL THAT IT LOOKS EPIC.
Tenzin from Legend of Korra

Glaring Bane

Some random cosplayers

Darth Vader
Edward and Lanfan
My favorite picture!
Alphonse and Lanfan
Yes, I'm aware I wasn't the best dressed over there, but give me a break. I wear a hijab (head covering), and I have no interest in wasting money on costumes. One guy stopped me to take my photo though, and another thought I was Amon, from Legend of Korra. That Alphonse costume though...gah! I love it!

I had to chase the FMA characters down for a pic, one of them was taken in the mall. I also took a picture with Spike; from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and a picture with soul and death the kid; from soul eater. I wasn't wearing my mask, so I will not be showing it here.

Post what you think,


I went to the doctor yesterday to see my cholesterol and ECG results. Everything seems fine, but I don't I have enough "good cholesterol" or what ever. I honestly don't care. I only checked my cholesterol because she said I has lipidemia, which means she saw a lot of fat tissue in my blood, but everything is fine now. I also had her check my sore foot. You see, the back of my foot, the bone of the second toe has been hurting me for a week now. It didn't occur right after karate, it escalated from pain while walking with shoes, to pain while walking in general, to just numb chronic pain. It has been feeling better now, but I'm still limping. I wanna go to karate anyways. Screw this, how many Tuesdays will I miss!

I went to a "thank you volunteers" breakfast today. complete waste of time. They gave everyone eggs and bacon, tatter and half a grilled tomato. So, I only ate half of my plate. But there was also some fruit salad and some pastries in the middle of each table, so I ate two of those. I liked the pastries.

Yesterday I noticed there has been MORE israeli products being sold in the supermarket, which absolutely appalled me. I wrote a complaint comment to Loblaws for selling Orri mandarin from israel. And I'm very disappointed that "organic tomatoes" are being brought all the way from across the world. How is that organic? Augh!

Please check the labels guys, we don't wanna purchase and support products from an apartheid state, alright?

Thank you for your support,
