crizarah:

More amusing than anything, really. And because UP is my home university no matter which country I’m currently in.

Much has been said about the University of the Philippines. But, the people were never told about the things that some of them might not consider UP, the country’s premier university which has the most number of CHED’s Center of Excellence, as the best school in the country. Below are the reasons.

End It with a Bang…and a Wet Shirt: December 2012

Huzzah, I am not yet dead!

I’m sooooo sorry this took so long. I’m slowly but surely emphasis on the slowly trying to write all the things that have happened in the past year and a half, while keeping track of the current stuff. I have no excuse. It’s spring break over here (Hear! Hear! Filipino student on spring break? You probably already have an idea of what one of the future posts will be about.). And I’m working. Oops, so much for no excuses.

Either way, if you’re still sure you want to see what madness my classmates and I have been up to, read on below! Continue reading

Ode To Bucky Goad

crizarah:

“There’s nothing more valuable in life than someone who’s nice to you and means it.”

My oldest brother was twenty-five when he had the life stabbed out of him, but I was only eight. I’ve always known that he was murdered in Paris in 1969. What I didn’t learn until recently was that his whole life was only a dress rehearsal for that ugly final act.

My other brother Johnny, who’s thirteen years older than me and knew my oldest brother far better than I did, has helped me fill in a lot of the blank, bleak details.

Dad met mom at a USO Dance in Philly, accidentally knocked her up, and was in Europe fighting the Nazis when informed that he’d gotten her pregnant. Their first baby was born out of wedlock.

His legal name was Alton Howard Goad, Jr., but all we ever called him was Bucky.

Bucky was different from 99 percent of us because he couldn’t hear or talk. My mother…

Kanji Card – 操

crizarah:

‘Kay. I know I haven’t been posting, but…yeah. I promise, I WILL post all the stuff I’ve been busy with. In the mean time, lemme show you one of the new kanji I’ve learned so far. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorites. I blame my resurfacing HPLV/HPTR fandom feels for this.

ファイナルファンタジーX:すてきだね。できないけど、できる

(Taken from a blog entry I wrote for our class blog. The captions won’t save so I just put it in as regular text underneath the pictures, with some formatting.)

ユウナとティーダ:いい終わり

  一回に時代、誰か来た。あの人は固有に則らないけど、至難の業ができる。

できないけど、また試みる。敗れるけど、またやる。終わらないけど、終わられる。

 

ファイナルファンタジーXはファイナルファンタジーの十番の一回分です。この話は二部分があります。まず、ファイナルファンタジーX。ティーダ (Tidus)はザナルカンドのBlitzballの一番一軍でした。Sinの討ってから、Tidus はスピラという世界に着きました。Tidus は スピラの最新Summonerユウナ( Yuna) とYunaの友達と知り合いました。慌てて、喪家の狗で、同伴しました。 和のため、Yuna はSinを壊さなければなりません。共々、その企業に参加しました。旅しながら、あの二人の関係は発展しました。しかし、さまざまな多難があるので、よく準備しなければなりません。成り行きを発展した、あの二人は離れるけど、Yuna はスピラをもう指導しました。ここは第二話の始めでした。

ファイナルファンタジーXの簿面はMedievalみたい世界スピラでした。この世界はSinの生成するから、葛藤が沸き起こりました。ですから、この時代のSummoner がSinを討たなければなりません。その時、また和があります。

ファイナルファンタジーX は Square Enix の生産でした。このゲームはCGIを使いました。日本で6月の2001年に発売してから、ほめるのがたくさんあって、賞賛も受け取りました。筋立てはすばらしいと言っていました。RPGというゲームでした。ファイナルファンタジーシリスの中で、一番一回分は世界地図がないけど、ファンによると、「依然本当にファンタジーだよ」そうでした。スピラについて、ちょっと陰気だと思いますが。始めは、すべてはすてきで、いい所けど、本当は隠れる悲劇があります。そして、挿入歌もすてき。

この話は固有に則るのについてと思います。この人は存在はずがないのに、改めるました。なんか。。。この話に命が映し出されます。時々海運が起こるため、固有が則らないことをしなければなりません。この話に、皆Sinの繰り返しは終わらないと思うけど、終わりました。固有に則らない人のおかげで。

「最後がかもしれないだろう。だから、全部話してを聞いたいんっだ。」

「最後がかもしれないだろう。だから、全部話してを聞いたいんっだ。」

Aaaand School’s Out!

Okay, so it’s been over since the tenth, but I’ve spent the first few days organizing and putting away the school texts I’ve accumulated for the past semester and catching up on sleep.

This has been sitting around in my drafts folder for a bit so I thought it was about time it got out before anyone tried strangling me because I didn’t make it in time for the two weeks after Holy Week thing when I said I’d start posting again. This one’s going to be pretty short, because I’m pretty sure I’d make your eyes bleed with the probable length of the next few posts. But I have plans >D It’ll be like a month-by-month thing with the stuff I’ve promised so far, maybe with bits and pieces of other stuff (like ranting in Japanese) mixed in between.

I’ve started my personal summer projects too. Re-learning how to cook and cooking for one or two people at most was supposed to be at the top of the list, but it got displaced by catching up on sleep. I’ve begun re-writing my notes for the this sem’s Nihongo classes, taken out the old ones for review, downloaded several raw light novels and raw manga for reading exercises, and gotten new listening material. (Summer Paradise by Simple Plan featuring Taka from ONE OK ROCK is lurve. And the video’s nice too! I’ve been listening to it the whole week and I keep repeating it enough that a certain Dark-Lord-in-Training ended up staying in my lap and demanding to watch the music video on loop) I’ve also begun looking for dummy’s guides to learning stocks, teaching myself Italian, and transferring files from the laptop to make room for a sudden urge to download and watch Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Charmed in HD. There are also writing projects and books I’m just itching to read although I don’t really know why that is as I’ve worked my way through three-quarters of the pile of actual books by the first week alone.

So I’ll be taking my leave (again!) to draft out the first few narratives of what the last four months have been like for me and my merry, not-exactly-normal, absolutely insane, awesome forever classmates. Until then, knock yourself out with this one ;)
