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。」

Just a Quickie

Just a quick update so you won’t assume I’m dead. Although there isn’t really much to say if I were, save that the world has one less sadist in it. LOL.

Just a few more weeks and classes will be ending. This merits two reactions from me and, most probably, the rest of my classmates: “Hurray!” and “Asdfjkl; NO! I’m not done with my paper yet dammit!”

Well, there you have it. A week or two after Holy Week, I’ll be catching up on all the stuff I’ve been promising to post — the adventurous fieldwork in the mountains of Sierra Madre, getting that scholarship, happiness with my awesome forever classmates, our misadventures in Pampanga, and our weekly indulgences. There’ll even be pictures too! And, gasp, dare I say it? Fanfic updates! I commend and pity anyone and everyone who still sticks with me this far, with my erratic posting schedules. Or lack of it.

LOL.

Anyway, it’s nearly five in the morning here, and I have to go get some shut eye before our last dance performance for this semester. I hope. LOL. I just passed by to tell you that:

  1. Final Fantasy is amazing;
  2. I’m turning into an obsessive fangirl again;
  3. It’s okay because it’ll be what I’m blogging about in our weekly class blog;
  4. I have a legitimate excuse to take unwarranted breaks between the flood of paperwork we were left with; and
  5. I’m near to tears because I haven’t finished one-fifth of one of my major papers.

Oh, and I’m getting hooked again to Suteki da Ne, one of the songs in Final Fantasy X, the one I wrote about today. If you haven’t listened to it yet, I’m recommending it to you. Don’t worry, it’s harmless…relatively XD Well, I did get depressed the first time I heard it and all…

 So, life as usual, yeah?

Oh, I’ll be posting a copy of that sort-of-rushed article here too. But it’s all in Japanese, so don’t strangle me please.

Note to self: Finish all paperwork if I want to get anywhere or go anywhere for that matter. Procrastination. Why did I have to be a pro? LOL.

Sayonara, Bloody IV Drip!

So I just got out of confinement. And no, that’s not me trying to wriggle out of posting. My body was being a bitch like the rest of me and wouldn’t respond to medication. So you lot out there who haven’t been totally rendered insane by the randomness of this blog, I advise you to stay out of hospitals. If anything, try not to have yourself stuck to an IV drip. The dextrose isn’t that bad in itself, even if the nurses said it was supposed to hurt. What does that say about my body? but the skin test shots for the medication you might get through it is just not something you want. It bloody hurts, I tell you. And that’s coming from someone who didn’t have any anesthesia while having her leg incised. And watched the whole thing.

Anyway.

I wasn’t confined the whole time much to my mother’s wallet’s relief. The internet got busted, I got loopier (what’s new?), and other shit happened. So between traveling eight hours per trip to a far away province for our fieldwork (which I intend to write about, maybe even post some pictures. The stream was awesome.), researching, recording, doing paperwork, applying for a scholarship abroad (and actually getting it; another thing I really, really want to write about), and juggling all of that with all the everyday struggles of taking care of our very own Mini Lord Voldemort and just trying to actually live, I got to squeeze in some time to write. I warn you though: there is a high probability of crappy quality. Or well, it’d be different from what I usually write, I think. I just couldn’t seem to get into the “right” mood for writing long enough. I’m trying (read the operative word, mates, trying) to make it my life to write something that isn’t too technical, bland, boring (who doesn’t?), or plain. My current writing mode borders all of that combined. Following my earlier train of thought, that would mean I utterly fail at life “OTL

I actually have a lot of stories to tell, more randomness to infect you with, and even more crack to test your sanity. I just have to type it down. Because yes, I have finally admitted to myself that I can’t function properly without traumatizing people with my posts sharing them. I kind of really absolutely unbelievably miss writing for fun and not having my head ache at random intervals because of the ever-present paper. Besides, I have yet to fulfill my mission of learning how to write casually at will. Even in the dratted things known as papers.

That said, forgive the lack of posts. And the nearly month-long lateness of the next installment of chapters. And everything else, except maybe for spreading the insanity. That part I get to say, “Hah! I told you so!” I’ll be putting up the next chapters for NEP and SD, but SASBRC will be a tad late because klutzy me managed to lose the paper with the last chunk of the chapter. Please don’t maim me yet!

Oh, and the title? That was pretty literal.

Daily dose of being freaky complete!XD

Blog and Plug

I have a legitimate excuse to take a break from studying that massive pile of school texts that’s teetering and threatening to bury me underneath its bulk.

Our Japanese class’s blog is now official functional! And it’s on the same site! There you’ll see weekly posts from members of our class about anything under the sun. (Though I have a hunch that most of the posts there will be connected to Japan in one way or another. Well, it is a Japanese class.)

So far, the only things posted there are the welcome message and our self-introductions with our pictures. Give it time. Some of us have expressed their intentions to post when they aren’t too busy trying not to get swallowed up by schoolwork. Soon it’ll be filled with everything from trivia, events, to pure randomness.

It’s purely in Japanese though. Most of the thoughts survive Google Chrome’s translations so if you can withstand the atrocious grammar and lack of coherence of the translations, it should be fine if you want to read it. I anticipate no lack of pictures from us, so that may make up for it as well.

Join the madness here!

With my advertising campaign done, I now return to the nest I had made of my readings and school texts. See ya guys if I return from the land of the half-dead!

Japanese Blogging?

Two of my classes this semester include a lot of writing in Japanese. One involves blogging in Japanese on a wordpress account shared by the whole class. Okay, that’s shameless plugging right there. The other involves the proper creation and execution of an interesting and effective speech. In Japanese.

Bloody hell.

Creative juices and plot bunnies, please don’t abandon me mid-sem!

Awesome Forever Classmates Moments 001

So I said I wouldn’t be able to post until hell week ended, and here I am, typing a second entry not twenty-four hours afterward. Maybe if I say that more often, I’d finally be able to post in time to meet certain fanfiction deadlines. But today gave us (or me, at least) such an emotional work out that it would be a crime not to share it. The happier parts, I mean. Unless you’re particularly fond of schadenfreude, in which case it’s a pleasure to provide you with moments of my torment I think.

Today was a roller coaster of emotions, lots of  highs, lows, and the occasional okay, maybe omnipresent loopy moments. And they were all with these people who, in the course of two and a half semesters, have become a very precious part of my life. Continue reading

All Pepped Up

Another entry for Pilates class though it has absolutely no relation to the exercise whatsoever.

So no, this isn’t the fanfic update that I’ve been talking about for so long. I hope nobody tortures me for this.

Just this Monday, we attended our university pep rally to show our support to the various varsity teams for the upcoming season. It was an event in which we could rally together and cheer on the athletes, and see them perform amazing numbers onstage for us. Because the students were talented like that. The event started sometime after 3PM, and lasted somewhere around an hour and a half to two hours. And let me tell you: The ticket was well worth it.

Held at the University Film Center, the lighting and other effects were superb as expected. There were times when the audio failed, possibly due to the overexcited athletes tripping over the wires (which, if you think about it, is rather ironic considering how graceful and skilled they move in their respective fields) as they scurried from one end of the stage to another without trying to be seen.

I’ll be completely honest and say that I didn’t really expect the quality of performances this year; having seen last year’s pep rally — which consisted mostly of line dances and other similar mass performances that looked almost impromptu I’m so mean — I was expecting something along those lines. Also, taking into account the limited time they were able to practice (classes started on the thirteenth of June), I can’t help but be surprised at how well their performances went.

Scratch that. My jaw was hanging open by the time the Fencing Team was done with their performance.

I think you would too, if a whole team of lean yet muscled fencers complete with hot girls was in front of you and you started seeing a band of black showing above a steadily lowering  pure white garter line.

The other performances were amazing too. UP Street, which is said to be competing in a worldwide street dance competition sometime this year, was downright amazing. The movements were executed cleanly and precisely, blending well with the mix of music used. Together with the lights and the fog, the whole pep rally was really a sight to behold and a wonder to listen to.

And damn, I just realized how much I really miss dancing.
