  • Mood:

Wow, this is random~

  • hetalia_penpals has such a wonderful concept behind it. Getting to meet people from all around the world, learning about cultures, getting to use awesome stationary, adding friends to your LJ and flailing about Hetalia? It couldn't get better than this. I'm adding my own post soon~
  • Been obsessed with the Winter Olympics like whoah. Well, mostly the ice skating bits and whatever comes on whenever I turn on my TV. I kind of almost want to see a nation that nobody expected ever to win the medal count, though. Like Canada, or Spain, or even Brazil or something like that. It's always the same feud between the Russians and the Americans, and the Germans kicking ass alongside. I get a little tired of it. On a random kind of depressing but nonetheless hilariously cute note, I found out that Costa Rica has only won three Olympic medals. Ever. And that was for swimming with the same two sisters who aren't even Costa Ricans by birth or by ethnicity. orz.
  • I sometimes wonder why my parents chose to live in such a cramped space in the city when there's so many beautiful areas in the mountains to build a little house on. The one place that I went to today was absolutely breathtaking. Granted, it's significantly more expensive, but still. And... then again, my house is actually pretty decent and nice compared to other areas around San Pedro and I even have a flowering tree and christophenes outside of my window. Yeah, shutting up now. XD 
  •  What's not cool though is mosquitoes. Gah. They're all over the place around this time and I've been itchy and it's nasty.
  • Oh! And Robles de Sabana are flowering now. They're special.
  • I found some old pictures from about three years ago back when I was taking tango lessons and I've lost a lot of weight since then! In fact, some of  the shirts and jeans that I wear now are so ridiculously loose on me. :D
  • My brother has this neat little book called Numbers which contains hilarious, surprising and sometimes downright depressing statistics. I thought I'd share some with you guys. Have to warn you though, most of them aren't innocent at all and I don't mean to offend anyone with them. Oh yeah, and the authors are British, in case anyone is wondering why he picks on the Brits so much. But the best part is some of them even scream Hetalia. XD

Day 03 → Your favorite television show
Day 04 → Your favorite book
Day 05 → Your favorite quote

Day 3 - Your favorite television show

I don't watch a lot of TV now, but I did back in the day. Ocassionally, I'll tune in to some series I used to be a loyal follower of like Grey's Anatomy or CSI or Friends or something like that. But I do enjoy historical series.



Day 4 - Your favorite book 

I don't have a favorite! XD Sorry. But I do love the Harry Potter series, any Phillipa Greggory book, and random reads that I find around the house or that friends recommend. If I have to name one...A Respectable Trade by Phillipa Greggory.

Day 5 - Your favorite quote

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." - Jimmy Hendrix.

Powerful, powerful quote that I heard during a Shakira concert, actually. XD I guess it's just my own little way of reassuring myself that almost all things can be done if people are moved by them. That's how powerful love is.
