Christmas Eve

It's Christmas Eve here in the states, and even though I know it's Christmas in other places of the world, I'm bent on celebrating my Christmas Eve the way my family does every year: with Christmas specials on the tv and lots of cookie baking. This year we have friends coming to visit and they're arriving today, so the whole relaxation thing takes a backseat to our frantic cleaning. :P It's all good, though, because I really like the family friends who are visiting. They're coming from across the country and have two children around my age. The only problem is that since I'm a spoiled, materialistic American teenager, my parents bought me a lot of gifts. And since the friends are going to be here on Christmas day, they'll witness me opening a million presents and generally being spoiled.

While I don't mind the number of gifts I have (I don't really care very much about the gifts I get for Christmas. I just like the "Christmas Spirit" and giving gifts. I'm bad at being materialistic when it's acceptable.) a huge part of me is worried about being judged by our visitors. My parents are also fairly worried about that, so they've been trying to make me open my presents early. Which isn't working, because I'm a stickler for opening everything at once on Christmas morning.

This reads more like a diary entry than anything, so I'm sorry for being an awful blogger.

Merry Christmas, everyone! (Or Christmas Eve, I guess) I hope you all have an amazing holiday~

Mod Browsing

I was browsing Modcloth after a (failure of a) study marathon. These are some super cute things among the already ridiculously cute items for sale online. The first bag is my favorite. It looks 2d.

Quick update

I failed another math test today. ^_^ Oops. I got the last quiz back and was surprised to find that I got a C on it. Not horrible, but nothing to be proud about. Hehe, this isn't my strong suit.

Gave up on studying and am now focused on not having panic attacks in the middle of class. The joys of being a mental case. ;P

On the up side, I bought a cute pair of rain boots and am now waiting for it to rain. BRING IT, NATURE.

Math Quiz

I know that this blog makes me seem like a total downer, but I can't really fix that right now. I have more bad news. The math quiz we had today was so hard that I left more than half the answers blank because I had no idea how to do any of it. My brain hurts so much right now and the quiz is nothing like the homework we do every night. It wasn't even like the practice quiz in the textbook, which I spent 2 hours doing last night.

I think this will bump my grade down another letter. :(

I hate my math teacher so much.

Work work work and no play should give this girl an A

So yeah, I don't really spend a lot of time studying. I'm lazy, and since I'm in high school, everyone around me brags about getting great grades without studying. What about me? Well...there's just so many other things I want to do other than study.

So many other things that turn me into a procrastinator.

It's pretty awful to never want to do something, but expect decent results and finals are just around the corner. (2 weeks! Why didn't I start studying earlier!?) I wrote game plans for my academic classes and the material I need to study, as well as the time frame last night. But now that it's Monday and time to get crackin' on those textbooks, I'm having a difficult time dragging myself away from the computer. It doesn't help that I'm failing math, so studying for that will be learning the units instead of just refreshing my memory.

So I whined a ton to get this stuff out of my system. Better get back to the Spanish textbook and finish memorizing the fact that la portada means network. :P

Wish me luck!

Well, if you don't speak Spanish or if you're not familiar with the Americanisms we have here, nada means nothing. I'm only calling it an Americanism because most Americans know a few Spanish words that we integrate into our normal everyday lives. Tacos don't count. I'm not sure if it's the same in other countries, so I'm sorry if it's not actually an Americanism. I'm not stuck up, I swear! ;)

I seem to spend a lot of time (okay, all) ranting about how much a suck and things along those lines. Nothing's really changed on any front, but oh well. I've had a week off school for our Thanksgiving break and so far I haven't even touched my homework. Oops! That is entirely my fault and I'll spend all of tomorrow frantically playing catch up. The good news is that I've had an amazing break. My sister and I cooked all day on Thursday, and I'm glad to say that dinner was amazing! Our guests ate almost everything, so the food was either really good or they were starving. ;P

I'll get back into that self-hate stuff when school starts again, but it's nice to be a little less high strung all the time. Have any of you seen Rise of the Guardians? I watched it with my friends and it's amaaazing. Jack Frost is strangely attractive for an animated character. It doesn't hurt that Chris Pine voice acts him.   <3 Oh, his voice!

Failure =_=

So I just failed yet another math test. What's up with me and numbers? We really don't mix. At all. ._. The sad thing is that the rest of my family members are brilliant when it comes to math. Do you think I'm exaggerating? Well, it's probably smart of you. Teenagers exaggerate a lot, but I am seriously failing this stupid thing.

Drumroll, please...I have a...


C in that class. Ugh, math is a life skill that I will never have. D:

Well, I've got to study my butt off more! See ya later~

Ugh, I spent the day home today because I was sick. It was probably a poor choice, but when I woke up this morning, I honestly couldn't stand up without wanting to puke. My mom was skeptical, but I didn't want to risk puking in class and being known as "the girl who puked" all year. :( Now I'm behind, or should I say more behind, in my classes. Not only did I stay home for the entire day, but I also didn't do anything.
Instead of working on my schoolwork so I won't be as behind when I come back, I slept like a lazy person all day. Ugh, this is so stupid.
I'm just always wasting my time!
Sniffles and nausea,

Oops, I almost forgot I had a blog. Sorry for not posting in just about forever and dropping off the face of the planet. ^_^ That was pretty stupid of me. There's been no real progress since I've started this blog and I've actually gained weight! I know, right? So annoying. School = stress = more food = weight gain. =_= I wish I was one of those skinny girls who can eat whatever they want and never get fat.

On the other things I wanted to work on, there's been no real progress either. I'm still a little introverted shy girl, still wearing jeans and sweatshirts, and still no make up or hairstyling. I know! What have I been doing all these months?

Nothing. :P Absolutely nothing. I've just wasted time on the internet.

The school year is back in session and guess what? I'm also failing that. For the first time ever, I'm literally failing my math class. For me, math is the hardest thing ever. I just sit in class and listen and take notes, but I never understand what my teacher's saying! Another thing in the way of my imaginary perfection. :( No matter how hard I try, I don't understand what's happening. I tried getting students to explain things to me and I've been staying behind after class to make the teacher re-explain things, but that doesn't work either! I'm just not designed for school, poo.

And yeah, I guess that's my goal. To be perfect. I'm like the opposite of perfect right now, sadly enough.

Blah, blah, blah, it's unhealthy and whatever.

So is what I'm doing now.

See you soon!

Trend Alert: Pastel

For certain Japanese fashions, pastels have been in trend for a long time. (Lolita, Fairy-kei, Mori girl, ect) But here in the states, pastels are transitioning from Easter grandma wear to a cute spring trend. I love these muted tones so much! One of my favorite spring trends. Among the leading brands, Louis Vuitton's released an adorably pale ad campaign featuring these pale new bags!

Just three of the pics from the ad campaign. I'm lazy and didn't want to upload them all. It's not like I can afford them anyways, lol.

What are your favorite trends this spring?

My last post included a short-ish rant on my ability to get lost anywhere. I guess I'm lucky because not many people get superpowers like I do--even if getting lost isn't a helpful one. X3

My mama must've been psychically connected to me or something (yes, I'm reading about superheroes. How can you tell?) because today she surprised my family with tickets to NYC! We'll be spending the next four days in New York City and she has the entire trip planned out with friends of hers. I can't believe it! How'd she keep it a secret from us?

Spontaneous trips rock. :D This is the first time she's ever done something like this and it's super fun! In a few hours, I'm going to go to the airport and get on an airplane to go to the coolest place ever! I was on facebook with one of my sorta friends and she gave me a list of restaurants that I should visit during my trip. I better charge my cellphone so I can call my mama if I get lost. XD

New York is a huge city. If I somehow do get lost, I sure as heck am not going to be able to find my way by myself.

The Art of Getting Lost

I think I'm stupid. I really do. How can almost everyone I know find their way around this tiny, tiny town so flawlessly? They know where everything is, the shortcuts, and exactly where they are and how to get somewhere else. I live in a small hick town and I can't even bike to the grocery store by myself. Say it with me, folks, paaaaathetic.

I'm the complete opposite, guys. I can get lost going to the bathroom in my school. Like, seriously. (Not really. I'm not a total idiot) When I was in my mama's womb, rackin' up nutrition, I think I must've lacked what I needed to grow a brain. Or any kind of directional radar. Maybe she with held them from me because she wanted to have a better sense of direction.

It's really sad. My friends will be like, "Do you want to go for frozen yogurt at x or y location?" and I'll just be like, "I don't care. Can I go to your house before so we can bike together?"

It's gonna suck when I start driving. I'm moving to a city with a great public transportation system in the future, just fyi. But knowing me, I'll probably get lost in the subway. ; ^ ;

The good thing is that I have firsthand experience with getting lost. I just ask people where I am and how to get somewhere until I get pointed in the right location. No foreign countries for me in the future. I'd probably overstay my welcome and have some international force think that I'm a criminal. NO, I JUST DON'T KNOW WHERE I AM, THANKYOUVERYMUCH.

Hehe, that's why my sister carries the map with her while we're on vacation. It's a complete waste on me.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter! I made cute Easter egg shaped cake pops last night to celebrate but it was my first attempt at making cake pops so they were just lumpy messes lol. When I was younger, my neighborhood used to have a HUGE Easter egg hunt but I was never allowed to participate because I always helped set it up. It was okay though, because I'm a bit of an old soul. Making conversation with the grownups while mooching the left over candy was all right for me.

Please bear with my ugly photos. I'm not much of a photographer. :P

Failed cake pops.
Okay-ish cake pops.

But our new neighborhood does no such thing because all the "children" here are either teenagers or in college. My parents used to make us get out our baskets every year the night before and then when we woke up, they'd be filled with candy and all sorts of goodies. We kind of grew out of Easter, to be honest, but my little sister refuses to give up free candy so she pretends to believe in the Easter bunny. And the general rule in our house is that if one kid gets something, we all do. Lucky me. :D

My sister and I dyed eggs last night. I used three tablets of food dye to make the blue coloring but it was so faint that we just decided to use pink. I started making actual Easter designs but then she started to make chibi faces and I did too. My mom was like "WHAT DID YOU DO!?". Hehe, we decided a little extra cuteness was needed. Sorry!

Please bear with my ugly photos. I'm not much of a photographer. :P

I've gotta go, guys. Easter brunch doesn't just appear out of no where. Happy Easter?

Hello there!

Hi there, I'm Juju. ^w^ I'm obsessed with Korean and Japanese fashion and I've decided that I've had enough of being fat and kind of ugly, leh. It's not that I'm super shallow, even though I sorta am. I want to be skinnier and healthier and to have better skin. So yeah, it actually is that I'm super shallow. Even though I'm the sort of girl that no one wants to be around, I hope you'll stick around and follow my journey. Hopefully, I'll loose enough weight to be able to wear fashionable clothes. :D I love fashion. Any kind of fashion, really, but my favorite seems to be American trends and Japanese street fashion.

I'm not saying that fat people shouldn't wear fashionable clothes. They should. I just have severe confidence issues and I hope by loosing a few pounds (you can tell I'm from America now, can't you?) I can gain the confidence needed to wear what I want. Right now I'm wearing these loose, grosso clothes that hide my body shape (or lack of) so that people can't see how fat I am, lol.

So yeah, shallow girl here. I'm probably the epitome of blonde, even though I'm not actually, you know, blonde.
