the beginning of my spring/summer break~

the beginning of my spring/summer break~



'cause i'm young and foolish

so the other day, i was watching this show (which, so far, is one of the best things i’ve ever watched, but that’s another story), and the main character’s dad said this thing, which really struck a chord with me, because i realized that what he described is exactly the confusion that i’ve been feeling for a while now D:
(some things might get lost in translation; please excuse. but, basically this is what he said:)
deep inside every one of our hearts
we’re hiding this subconscious desire to become perfect.
but most people probably won’t have the chance to do so in their lifetimes
and don’t have the ability to properly express this desire.
that’s why we’re always so confused,
feeling that there are two sides of yourself.
one is the normal and simple me.
the other one is the me who always wanted to exceed limits
and create miracles
but between the two, we can only choose one.
( and i’ve just been wondering which one it is that i really want to choose. 3: )

“I‘m not perfect, but I keep trying cause that’s what I said I would do from the start.”

one of the best things ever

learning a foreign language enough so that you can pick up words/phrases/sentences when people who speak that language are speaking it near you and ohmygodtheydon’tevenknowhowmuchyouunderstandofwhatthey’resaying ahahaha~ such a fun feeling. i was smiling the entire time and silently LOL-ing, sitting beside these students conversing in their language, and i knew a lot of what they were saying, but they didn’t know that i knew! what fun! (don’t worry, i wasn’t eavesdropping on anything secretive. they were just trying to figure out some math, and i was helping them with it, so. yeah. ;D no worries~)

as my sister put it when i told her of this event
"wow, that’s like one of the best things that can ever happen to a person"



it just feels like a vacation

in my mind right now.

i feel so relaxed and content, just spending time with the family, fan-girling over celebrities and fictional couples, working on my simple little android game, listening to a lot of music and falling behind in math class

and right now, i’m eating the most delicious home-made bread! mm-mm-mm <3 this is happiness.



one of the greatest things ive seen in a long time

reminds me of “ I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth, then I ask myself the same question.”

“Be crazy. Be stupid. Be weird. Be whatever. Because life is too short to be anything but happy. :D”

the apple store is too hip for me.

so i went to the apple store today, and i was waiting around for someone at the “genius bar” to help me, and one of the employees came up to me, and talked to me about why i was there and stuff, and then he told me to “go grab that stool”

and for a second, i was so confused because i thought he was asking me to go get a stool for him, and i was wondering why he would ask me, the customer, to grab something for him.

then he continued the sentence with “go grab that stool and hang tight” (still pretty confusing), but then he added “and we’ll come to you. so just, wait there for a moment.” or something like that, and it finally made sense.

wow, colloquial speech.

much too hip for me.

so here’s some explanations for these pictures i posted a while back:

so i finally revisited all my family back in bangladesh :D the top two pictures are from the flight, the second row are pictures of this huge dog that my cousin has now. he’s HILARIOUS and over-friendly xD and loves small, moving objects, making my little sister (the eight-year old one) one of his favourites to chase around and sometimes tackle to the ground when she’s least expecting it. oh my;; xD and he eats everything! we always had to make sure to close the door to our room so he couldn’t go in and eat any of our stuff (like our friends [pictured in the last photo]! D: i was always so scared of that happening. yes, all our friends went with us on the trip - sora, cloud (it was both of their second time visiting the place), and also roxas, xemnas, saix/isa, and syaoran. (aqua stayed behind for this time).

the rest of the pictures are all from the trip.

the rings — are two rings that we took with us, but for some reason, some how during the journey, they got entwined together! O: i have no idea how it happened, as i don’t see any bends or gaps in either of them, and now we can’t take them apart, which means we can’t wear them anymore XD but it’s really cool, so it’s okay haha! :D

the second last row, first picture, is just my (dream) boyfriend/husband (i wish. he’s just a really hot, really adorable, really fun celebrity D: <//3<3), and the second picture is this computer science project i’m currently working on with a partner for school. we’re making an android game, about sushi and war LOL xD 

oh and the last picture is just sora and roxas taking selfies. sora keeps cutting out roxas, so he’s starting to get a little annoyed.

and that’s all~ :D yay fun stuff;;

we were watching cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2 today with the family, and before the movie, our little sister (she’s eight years old) made these for us as a surprise snack! :D haha.

i want to make a medley remix type thing

because i love music and medleys are awesome :3

i also want to make a video montage type thing of some family photos and videos.

and i want to
watch peabody and sherman
finish playing ff9, ice, atelier meruru, the last story, fire emblem: awakening, legend of zelda ocarina of time 3d
and also play bravely default

and learn like, 3 new languages.

and i also want to be friends with and/or date and/or marry this guy who happens to be like some sort of celebrity or something, but i guess we can’t get everything we want; oh well~
