600 jump-ropes.

I jumped 600 times today.

I have been slacking on everything I've made goals for this past two weeks.
Script frenzy is behind.
L2 Reading challenge is going slowly. (60 pages)
Working out was on hold due to sickness
Kevin's phone is broken, so I can't even get a hold of him properly.
Korean has been put on hold.
School is almost over.

Today is time to get back on tracks. I had my lazy week due to sickness, but now it is time to get back on track! Readers and followers, you hear me! Back on track.

I need 25 pages for script frenzy!
I need 40 pages for L2 Reading.
I need to get back in shape SOON! (Before june)
I need to... Get in touch with Kevin. Somehow. Get creative!
I need to order the Korean books I want.
I need to get two of my grade back to an A. (B+ right now)

By the way, I talked to both my teachers, and my education class is now an A, and my speaking class is a B+. Therefore, I should be able to get all As.

Tip: Always talk to your teacher if you have a problem with your grades :D

I baked cookies today.
So I didn't feel so sick anymore. I dont know why I thought it would work, but I did enjoy my cookies.

L2 reading = a little less than 40 pages. :D! Of chinese. Never thought I would be able to do something like that!
Script frenzy = 47 pages.
Working out = That is fading. Need to pick that up, but it is difficult with my body aches D:
Grades = Talked about that with my education professor and my grade is back to an A right now. So the only grade that isn't is my Public speaking and Spanish. Spanish will be when I get my participation grade in, and public speaking... well. I will have to focus on that next.

Everything is possible in life.

Break ups.

"Breaks up at hard to do"
That's the jiggle of the new AllState (Insurance company). They offer a service that tells your old insurance you no longer what to be insured by them.

I didn't need someone to break up with Kevin for me this weekend.

It happened Sunday night. It is really hitting me now what I have done.
I don't truly want to give him up. I want to be with him, but he has been so uncaring lately, and so unkind to me.
I have been feeling pretty tense around him, like I couldn't be myself. I had to be the woman he wanted, instead of who I was.

Since I have broke it up (Or now it is "complicated" on facebook), he has all of the sudden taken an interest in being my prince Charming.
He has called my ex-best friend to tell her to never talk about me being my back, or tried to wish me good luck on my tests, and acting "happy" when I receive good grade.
I know it is all an act, and he is going to go back to his old ways, but it is so easy for me to see the good in him right now.

This might sound corny, but the only way to explain it is by saying: My heart is screaming "WHAT AN IDIOT YOU ARE ALLY!" while my brain is saying "This was a wise decision."

Who do I listen? My brain? My heart?

Behind on what? How?

How in the world am I behind on Script Frenzy?
I was doing so well! A week ago.

I am fourteen pages behind, which isn't that bad in script world, but not long ago I was 25 pages behind! HOW?!?!?!?!

Here is what I think happened.


Ally-chan: Oh! I am doing so well! I can just skip this ONE day and continue tomorrow. Hahaha ! *runs off with Kevin*

Reality: You did just fine. But now you're behind of 4 pages.

Ally-chan: Aaah... I don't feel like writing todayyyy!! Eh. It is not too bad to be behind a little more! It is all good, I will just need to write five pages a day instead of 4! :D

Reality: That's already 8 pages behind Ally. Bad.

Ally-chan: *forgot*

Reality: 12 pages.


Reality: 16 pages *sigh*.

Ally-chan: Okay okay, let's write. *writes two pages*

Reality: Well, you're at 18 pages now.

Ally-chan: I am going to write this. *sits down and plays with her kittens instead of writing*

Reality: 22 pages.

Ally-chan: I got a headache. I dont want to do this at all.

Reality: And 26 pages. Good job on life.

Ally-chan: (Yesterday) DAMN IT! WHAT?! TIME TO WRITE! *and writes 20 pages at once*


That's not good.
Missing one day isn't a big deal. But missing more one day, and another day, and another day... without catching up/ realizing it, IS BAD. BAD BAD BAD.
It wasn't even procrastinating as much as over-confidence.

Never be over-confident about something. You're not super awesome-ness until someone tells you you are :D
Remember Napoleon? Yeah. Over confidence is B-A-D.

First conversation in Chinese

As you can read in the title, I had my VERY first true Chinese conversation.
Outside of my Chinese class.

Yesterday, I had lunch with the Chinese exchange students from East China Normal University. By "Normal", the university isn't strange, or the average but built for students who want to focus on teaching in the future and want to study abroad. Therefore, if I was Chinese, I would go there.

The conversation was simple, but I got to used almost every grammar point that I learned.
Here it is:
(It will be in Pinyin, because i dont have the proper program to type it in characters)

Haze: Ni shou zhong wen ma?
-You speak chinese?-

Me: Dui. Wo liang nian xue zhongwen.
-Yes. I have been studying Chinese for two years.-

Shen Jing: Ni yao qu zhong guo ma?
-You want to go to China?-

Me: Who shuo zhongwen yidianr.
-I speak a little Chinese.-

Xie Lu: No, no, Ni. Yao *QU* zhong guo ma?
-No,no, You. want *TO GO* to China?-

Me: oooh!! Wo yao qi yue zhong guo.
-oooh!! I am going to China in July.-

Xie Lu: July?

Me: Dui. Gen wode nan pengyou.
-Yes. With my boyfriend.-

Haze, Xie Lu: Oooh!! Is he handsoooome!?
-Oooh!! Is he handsoooome!?-

Me: Yes! I think so, at least!
-Yes! I think so, at least!

And that was the end of it, then I couldn't help but speak in English!

I always knew I needed sleep. Always. My mother is a big advocate for sleep, and sometimes I wonder if some mattress store pays her to talk about sleeping.

According to her sleep is beneficial because:
- You grow while you sleep
- Your brain rests
- Everything you learned that day "sinks in".
- It is a moment of reflection
- It is good for you back. It relaxes the spine.
- Good for any muscles. Relaxes them
- A good night of sleep gets you in a better mood.
- Gets rid of headaches
- Makes you eat less
- Your hair grows faster

Now, all of those arguments could make sense. I am not a scientist, I have just been listening to my mom for 12 years without even thinking she might be wrong. Then puberty hit, and she used to be wrong all the time for 6 years.
At this moment, she is half wrong half right.

But sleep seemed like a big waste of my time. I tried my best to stay up late, to take naps, but all failed. Then last night, I went to bed early, and I was awaken today by my lovely mexican crew.
Let me tell you, I want sleep. I want it bad. I just want to lay here and sleep.

But, my schedule doesn't permit me to sleep for how much I want. So, I will sleep as much as I can (which is 5 hours) and I will be grumpier and grumpier as the days go by.

Alpha Mu Gamma

Yesterday night was my induction into Alpha Mu Gamma.
For some of you who do not know what that is, it is the National Honor Society of Foreign Languages.
My parents came and Kevin did too. Let me tell you my mom waited until everybody left to take the rest of the cookies. So now we have bowls filled with cookies. (that I have been eating... Already ruining my diet uh?)

I am officially Vice President, and the movie chair. Anyway, here are the first pictures of my blog.

You can blame my mom for the pixelation of the picture.
But we got nice roses :D
So here I am with my rose saying my pledge!

Tuesday, April 6, 2010


So I've decided, that, since I had two seconds to myself. I'll throw in more updates :D!

Script Frenzy
In Green.

I should have 20 pages by tonight. As usual, I have no outline. Keelya and Dylan are taking me wherever their kindergarten hearts takes them. I'm doing pretty good, much better than I was doing with NaNoWriMo [I was struggling a lot]. I am also having a lot of fun with this, and I think I might write another script once I am done this one :D

L2 Reading Challenge
In Orange.

I read about 16 pages of mandarin. Today while in class, I think I felt asleep with my eyes open. Mandarin is blowing my head up. I spoke in Chinese while in my French class, and I want to point out things in the street and scream their Chinese name [Like a preschooler]. It is good though :D It means I am getting the language down and "graving it into my brain" as AJATT- All Japanese All The Time- would say.

In Purple.

As some of you might remember, I am learning Korean. Well, well, after talking to Linda I was doing it all wrong. In Korean, the word order in the sentence is different, and so learning vocabulary isn't the most efficient way to learn. So now, I am learning sentences. Let me tell you, it is a lot more difficult. I was happy with my ten words a day (or more like 6 sometimes). I am going to have to put a halt to it though, because I am getting busier as we speak.

In Teal.

Alpha Mu Gamma. Or, the Honor Society of Foreign Language. Initiation is in a couple days (Thursday to be exact). I will be the vice president of the Honor Society of Foreign Language. Insane right? I couldn't believe it either :D

Editing and writing
In Yellow.

So no one can see my failure. I completely stop editing :[ or writing the rest of My New Prison [Alan's story]. I know I will pick it up again, but so soon? eh. We shall see :D

In Blue.

The boy. I am planning a trip to China with him, and he is making it difficult. The man doesn't want to do anything. No Scuba diving, No beach, No train traveling, No Hong Kong, No PANDA PETTING [DDD:]. After an hour of just pure whining at each other, I came up with the great idea of, he makes a list of things he wants to do. I make my list. We swap lists and we pick 5 things on each lists. Everyone is happy now. Well kinda, I am going to have to make 6 items beach time in order to go to the beach now. [Just kidding, there shall be no beach time :( ]

Working out
In Brown-ish

I have been running, working on my abs/ biceps/ triceps/ and thigh areas.
Basically, getting ready for a bikini season where I will not even be wearing bikinis (since I won't be near a beach). Last I ran was two miles, and I do this about everyday. I work out for 2 hours after school, every two days. Even though I have not lost weight per say (I remained the same weight- which wasn't a lot to begin with), I can see myself getting toner, and more in shape. I can run longer distances, and I can do actual push ups now! :D

In Red.

I talked to my two professors about my grades. This little non-all-A's problem is going to be resolved soon. I am not going to waste my time rewriting a paper three times to get a 55%. No-uh. Therefore, we will see tomorrow what will happen with this story!!

Well, i think that's all my updates. I am off writing my 4 pages for today, eating some cookies (I did run, so I need a reward now), and getting my Chinese down :D
If you got any questions about anything, comment!!!

Bad grades... Bad.

The title says it all.

I just received two grades that didn't make me happy.
This semester I am aiming for a 4.0 GPA, or all A's, or at least a 95% in all my classes.
Right now, it seems IMPOSSIBLE.

My education class is RUINING my GPA. It does not make me happy. I might have to lower my standards in order to keep sane. :[

How unfortunate.

Sunday date?

I tried to upload a new blog post yesterday. It was a fail.

Anyway, script frenzy is going JUST FINE. :D
Yes, you heard me. It is going. Just. Fine.
I am surprised actually, I was expecting to be lazy about this, because it looked so easy. I think since I have listen to the Now Habit tapes, I have been more prone to do things.
I have read 11 pages of mandarin so far. It has given me real headaches, and if I had done what I was suppose to do, I would have read 40 pages by now. (10 a day)
BUT. No. NOT FINE on the L2 reading Challenge!

I've found out that the rent will 410$. The landlord increased our monthly rent because of one extra person. Still less than I expected to pay, SO WHATEVER!
I am on top of the world.
