So I am taking it out on SONES.
There. I said it. I am taking my annoyance at the world out on innocent fans of SNSD.
Why you ask?
Because I can.
Because SNSD is probably one of the most talentless groups I have ever seen.

Now, I will give SNSD some benefit for being able to hold so many middle-aged men's attentions for more than 5 minutes and for being able to swing their appendages in unison.

Am I pressed? Maybe. Am I bitter? Yeah I am because SNSD, a group that doesn't deserve any of the attention they are given, are getting more press than my faves.

And honesty shall set you free.

Please SNSD. Disappear. The world won't miss you.

Hello ya'all!

Its been another long while since my last post, but I know you are all dying to know how I am doing! (not really)

Quick updates:
-Got sick last week with a cold and I believe I am now getting better.
-Been really annoyed with a couple songs on the radio because they won't stop playing them every five minutes. So far my list includes: Adele, Rihanna, Eminem and Bruno Mars. Ugh.
-Wishes I could go to SMTown NYC...but alas, I am poor as fuck.
-My new group of Japanese girls are so damn adorable I just wanna hug them all to pieces.
-New boss is awesome!
-Halloween makes me excited...like too much for it to be healthy. LOL!

So last night I ventured, with three of my close friends, to a nearby theme park, Scarywood, to celebrate the upcoming Halloween holiday. Scarywood is actually called "Silverwood" during the summer months, but near to Halloween they open the doors to the park and turn it into a gigantic haunted attraction. It was fun and exciting and I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about going since I am the biggest pussy you will ever meet in your life.

Ultimately, Scarywood wasn't as bad I first assumed, its quite chintzy and a bit hilarious at moments, but it did what it was supposed to do, scare me half to death. The first ride my friends and I decided to go for was the haunted house attraction, "Blood Bayou" since it had the shortest line. We all enjoyed it and screamed our little heads off...except for Drew since he was seemingly not scared of anything. *side-eyes* The best part of the haunted house was the acrobats flying across the ceiling and seriously almost hitting you on the way down. They floated right over your head, dressed up like dead bodies or people trying to hang themselves. It was the loudest I've ever screamed.

Second, we decided to hit up the roller coasters so Drew and Emily could ride them, but sadly the lines were 2-3 hours long and we didn't have enough time. We still had to walk through Clown Town and pass by dark corners where zombies and bush-men and scare-crows wandered/hid, waiting to attack any passer-by, to get to them though. One scare-crow made me jump since I thought it was a fake one and it turned out to be a real person...*shivers*

Lastly we went on the "Zombie Express", which is a train ride you take out 1 mile around the park (IN THE DARK) to kill zombies with a few zombie-hunters. That was fun and actually more funny than it was scary...bah.

All in all it was a fun trip and I enjoyed being able to hang out with Emily, Jessie and Drew.

I feel like no one reads or cares to read my thoughts and updates on my (so-far) uneventful life. Not that I blame them. *chuckles* My life is quite...schedualed and mundane in almost every sense.

I am but a University student, clinging to her routine like a tween to Justin Bieber tickets, scared yet excited for her real life to start.

As of Wednesday I have been back in school, waking up at all un-godly hours to take long bus rides to get to semi-interesting classes. I am taking 15 credits, which is a full load, but not as many as I had previously wished for.

I have been set on the goal of graduating by June 2012, so therefore, I must take upwards of 20-25 credits each quarter to make it all possible.
Oy-vey. Why don't I just inject myself inter-vieniously with stress.

Work is fine. I have another group of 10 cute, sweet, "genki" Japanese girls who are all studying to be middle school and elementary teachers. They make me smile and make me want to pull my hair out all at the same time, so therefore, quite an average group. *laughs*

TVXQ is still part of my life, although not as much as before. After the "split" of JYJ and HoMin, my love did decrease as I felt like the spark that had attracted me to them had (in some way) burnt out.
I loved them most for the relationships between the members, how loving and sweet they all seemed to be towards their fans and each other.
Now, I am more a TVXQ pt.2 fan than a JYJ fan, but I still love each man equally....well, maybe not Changmin as I totally stan him hardcore.

ANYHOO...that's about all the shit I had to say...so until next time...ADIOS!

Where were you?

I was brushing my teeth, getting ready for another day of 7th grade. I heard something on the radio about the World Trade Centers being hit by a plane, so I decided to get more information by turning on the news. That is when I saw the first tower engulfed in smoke and watched, seemingly in slow motion, the second tower get hit by another plane.

That day has forever made me more aware of how delicate life is and how much we should live each day as if it is our last.

stolen from maple88[info]maple88

I haven't updated my LJ in quite a while as my busy quota has risen exponentially, so as a sorry, here is a meme stolen from a friend on LJ. ^-^

Name(s) you go by:
My actual name is Megan, but I go by so many nicknames its hard to remember them all sometimes. Close friends call me Sweets, Princess, Megs, Meggers and Nut-Meg. My dad likes to call me Megs or Megga-roo. My mother likes to call me Meggie or Megan. My sister calls me Smudge (inside joke), Meggo or Seester. I don't honestly care which nickname is used, I love all of them since they were given to me by people I love and care about.

Where you lurk (social sites, other journals, etc):
I don't use Twitter as I believe, unless you are famous, there is no need to continuously update people on where and what you are doing, especially if your life is not that interesting. I have no need to know when your last bowel movement was or that you decided to buy a slurpee.
LiveJournal and Facebook, along with my DeviantArt page is where you will likely find me.

Birthday and signs:
June 9, 1988 makes me a Gemini. Year of the Dragon.

I consider myself Atheist/Agnostic as I wasn't raised with any specific religion aside from Unitarian Universalism which promotes the understanding and acceptance of all walks of life and religious beliefs. I do believe in the "human spirit" in the scientific sense, where all humans have a life energy that can neither be created or destroyed. I do not believe in a deity or an all-mighty God-like figure, angels or miracles. Science is my religion of choice.

Sexuality/relationship status:
I consider myself quite heterosexual yet I do think women are incredibly beautiful and sexual beings.
I personally love men, their bodies, the way they hold themselves, the deep voices, I find it all very attractive. Specifically, East Asian men or a man with dark hair and brown/black eyes hold my biggest attraction.
I have had 5 relationships with men and have immensely enjoyed all of them, even during all the drama each relationship held. One of the five was an Asian, another was Spanish from Puerto Rico, the rest were all mixed Caucasian. (The race is not of utter importance, but I find it interesting to note. ^-^)
A relationship with a woman would not be a wish of mine, but I wouldn't say no to a sexual encounter because, as I have mentioned above, women are sometimes very enticing.

This year will be my final year (hopefully) in the Communications department at Eastern Washington University. I am trying to acquire a Bachelors in Communications Studies with a Double Minor in Japanese and ESLG (English as a Second Language Education/General). I want to teach English progressively in Japan and S. Korea for at least 5 years and then move on to France, Spain or Denmark.

Favorites of television/books/games/anime/music:
TV: The Soup, Arrested Development, The Big Bang Theory, Archer, Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunters, Paranormal Challenge, My Ghost Story, Celebrity Ghost Stories, I Survived, Jersey Shore (I know, its lame), Castle, Burn Notice, Avatar: The Last Airbender, American Dad, Robot Chicken and anything on Travel Channel.

Books: I read so many books so this answer will just be my three favorites, "The Mercy Thompson Series" by Patricia Briggs, "The Warded Man" by Peter V. Brett and "2001: A Space Odyssey" by Arther C. Clarke.

Games: UNO, Solitaire and Apples to Apples.

Music: I love pretty much anything when it comes to music. Any language, any style, I don't care, music is a universal language. My favorite genre is Pop but I also listen to Blues, Bluegrass, Rock, Techno and Country. I used to hate country but it has slowly grown on me over the years for reasons unknown to me. I have a lot of Kpop and Jpop music, yet Kpop has taken over much of the Jpop.
Favorite Artists: TVXQ, Big Bang, SHINee, Davichi, G.NA, The Killers, Imogen Heap and OceanLab

Tastes (foods, smells, colors, sounds):

Foods: I love to eat, especially with friends. My food loves are diverse and span from the basic hamburger to exotic Thai and Korean dishes. Specifically, my favorite foods are okonomiyaki, chicken enchiladas, bulgogi, kimchi and cream puffs. My favorite drinks are Cafe Au Late, Macha Latte and Lychee Bubble Tea.

Smells: I love the smell of my father's old leather jacket and my mother's aloe body cream, it reminds me of my childhood, of watching my mother get ready in the morning and my father's hug on a cold winter afternoon. The smell of just rained on Pine trees, new books and anything Mint. Simple smells.

Colors: I love anything pastel, especially pastel blues and greens. I wear a lot of whites, blacks and grays, although turquoise blue looks the best against my skin. Favorite color is white.

Sounds: My father lightly strumming his guitar to the sounds of my mother cooking or fiddling about. Japanese or Korean language chatter. Heels on a hard-wood floor. The soft hum of an electric fan. Rain on my parent's house's tin roof.

Talents: Writing has always been the one true talent I posses and care most about. Without writing, I do believe I would never have an escape from life. I can edit papers and stories/books incredibly well and in a short amount of time. Very factual and can state facts off the top of my head quickly and easily.

Quirky or strange habits?
I still bite my nails and have a tendency to procrastinate until there is no more time for procrastination. I like to imagine I am in a movie of my own life.

Languages (speak, learning, want to learn) and places you have visited/want to visit:
English was/is my native tongue. I am fluent in Japanese yet still learning. I am learning to speak French and Spanish. I want to learn Korean. I have visited Japan (2003) and Canada and have traveled all over the United States. I would love to visit S. Korea, France, the United Kingdom, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Brazil and New Zealand.

Own any pets?
An old, Alzheimer ridden Husky/Lab/German Shepherd mix named Corky. I love him with all my heart!

Favorite animal - domesticated, wild or fictional:
Dogs, Horses, Deer and Panda....well, okay and Hippogriffs.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Teaching English is Japan or S. Korea. Dating or engaged to a wonderful man. Hopefully have a book published.

go into the world and do good." - Minor Myers Jr.

If I am such a fucking "catch", why is it no one seems to want to reel me in from the water?

Its like he only wants me when he is not with another girl and when it is convenient. Just like almost every other boyfriend/relationship of mine (excluding Alberto), I am cool and amazing to a point, and then they have to get rid of me as fast as they can without trying to "hurt" me in the process.

I am pretty...until...
I am sexy...until...
I am sweet and cute...until...
I am the nicest person they've ever met...until...
I am the love of their life...until...

I know I am better than this, that I deserve better...but another part of me wants to believe that it will all change. It probably won't.

He will love me and love me, until he meets another girl in a another corner of the world who is nothing like me. The girls are always so opposite of me it makes me wonder why he says he likes me in the first place.

I don't think he understands how much I care about him and how much I have wanted to be his since I was 15.

I know he is far away and we never made any promises to each other, but I still can't help feeling hurt and rejected every single time he tells me he is going to see another girl.

I know I need to get over him and move on.

But its hard. Really hard.

Fuck...I'm lonely.

I need to snap out of it.

"She loves her mama's lemonade,
Hates the sound that goodbyes make.
She prays one day she'll find someone to need her.
She swears that there's no difference,
Between the lies and compliments.
It's all the same if everybody leaves her.

And every magazine tells her she's not good enough,
The pictures that she's seen make her cry.

And she would change everything, everything just ask her.
Caught in the in-between, a beautiful disaster,
And she just needs someone to take her home.

She's giving boys what they want, tries to act so nonchalant,
Afraid they'll see that she's lost her direction.
She never stays the same for long,
Assuming that she'll get it wrong.
Perfect only in her imperfections."

What do you so strongly believe in that you would march in the streets to support, and why?

Gay marriage and gay rights is a subject I have always been so very adamant on showing my support for.

No one should be exempt from being able to live with basic human rights and freedoms. A religion, personal belief or just plain out bigotry is not a convincing way of coming up with an opposing opinion.

LGBTQ youth and adults are just like everyone else and they want to love who they want to love. How does that effect you in any way? It doesn't and shouldn't.

Heterosexual, Homosexual, its all the same to me. Love is love. Let it be.

Well hello there!

Once again, here I am with almost nothing too important to tell you. As usual my life is utterly lame and uneventful to the point that it is causing pain in my heart.

Hey y'all!

How is everyone doing?
I know I haven't posted for a while, but to be honest with you, even though I have a lot to talk about, I just don't have any time to actually type it all out.
So, here is a list of what has happened over the past few weeks.

- Got back together with Alberto for two weeks and then ultimately, after my trip to Seattle for Sakura-Con, broke up with him since I was feeling trapped, unsatisfied and depressed by our distance from each other. I believe, ultimately, if we hadn't lived 4,000 miles away from each other, things could have worked out. I feel terrible for breaking his heart and making him feel like I never loved him, but it wasn't what I wanted either...it just didn't make any more sense trying to make it work when it really wasn't. I did the math, I thought about it for days upon days and realized that the next time we could actually try to live and work together it would be 8-some years in the future. It was just too long a time to not know if the relationship would work. I didn't want to live in Orlando and he didn't want to live in Spokane. It was doomed to fail in the first place. I will always care about him and I wish with all my heart he can forgive me someday for being the woman who ripped his heart in two. I am so sorry Alberto. I will always miss you.

- Past the Alberto issue, I have been going to school consistently and this quarter's classes are hardcore. I have had no time to just think anymore...too much homework and too much expected of me. I am so lazy during Spring Quarters because all I want to do is hang out outside and enjoy the warm weather. I am sick of school. I feel so lazy, I just don't care about it anymore.

- So, a few days ago I was asked out by my first Asian man. Not that the Asian part really matters since I would have said no to him (Asian or not) if he wasn't the kind of man I'd want....but anyhoo...yeah, his name is James and he is 1. attractive (sexy Hmong man), 2. funny, 3. understanding and 4. honest. All the things I like in a man. For right now we are just dating, getting to know each other and not officially tied to each other at all. He just left a 5 year relationship with a girl he thought he loved and I just got out of a relationship with Alberto (a man I thought I loved), so we consider ourselves still healing open wounds. We decided to take it very slow and just enjoy each others presences in our lives until the moment we are both comfortable taking it further...but again...no pressure to even ever take it further. But I will say this...the sexual chemistry is DEFINITELY something we need not worry about. XD And....OMG HE'S ASIAN-AMERICAN!!!!! *flails*

- Cut my hair to include bangs and now I have been asked out constantly. What is it about the bangs? Did the bangs change my personality as well? LOL!

Nikki Minaj - Super Bass
