So on August 17th 2012, unfortunately, I turned 17 years old.......against my will. I was born an old lady (as in: "Get out of my house, it's getting very late and I don't like sleepovers," or "Oh great a party.....what time will it end? I gotta make sure I eat... Continue reading

One of my favorite comedians Louis C.K. has mentioned many times in his comedy acts that one of the main reasons this generation of people is so horrible is because everything is amazing and nobody is happy. We have been exposed to techonology's most current and intelligent creations known to... Continue reading

Yes, it'll be weird showcasing two musicians in a row for "Artists Who Shape Me" and I should probably switch it up a bit with my selections but I can always make an exception for Marina. Again, I got into her music through my dad's everlasting love for KCRW's Eclectic... Continue reading

A;LSDKFJ;ALSDKJFA;LSDKFJA;SDLKFJA;ALKSDJF;ALKSDJF;ASLDKJF;ALSKDFJ;ALSKD. Yes. It's happening. I could not be more exited for this movie to come out. I have always been a huge Les Mis nerd and to see the musical motion picture be produced for the first time (the right way), I just.......I'm pumped, what else can I say? Judging... Continue reading

It was a few years ago when my dad bought Regina Spektor's third album Soviet Kitsch because of a simple interest in the CD's cover art. I've been in love ever since. Seriously, I've listened to Societ Kitsch almost spiritually for years now and I will never get tired of... Continue reading

This has pretty much described my life since.....well, I can't remember a time when this book title didn't describe my life (I was a crier as an infant). I can almost hear the many mental voices of loved ones thinking the same message directed towards me. "Go the f*ck to... Continue reading

I just saw the movie 21 Jump Street and the thing I loved most about it is the fact that it addressed the fact that the whole "teenage angst" thing has definitely transformed itself over the years. It used to be very easy to identify the stereotypes in high school... Continue reading

You know what's interesting? How immediate criticism for Invisible Children came out from certain people after their most recent documentary: Kony 2012 was released, and these people had no particular idea what the details of this cause entailed before the video. The usual reasoning behind this criticism is because of... Continue reading

Ok, so, I had a dream a while ago when....OK, I was in the backyard, and perched up in our olive tree was this big, shiny, glittery, blue/multi-colored, crystal-like ball sitting in the leaves by itself. Let's just picture it like this (except more sparkly swirls of other metallic colors... Continue reading

OK, so, regarding "How I Met Your Mother"...........Robin Scherbatsky is pretty awesome right? I've always liked her, and could always somewhat relate to her personality. Even though she annoyed me a little bit after her breakup with Ted WAY early on in the show, I constantly see her as someone... Continue reading

Group I would be more than happy to watch live: Flight of the Conchords. Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. Before I even saw their television show or listened their stuff on iTunes, I had been introduced to them when I was in 7th grade and our teacher wanted us to... Continue reading

You know what, I admit it. I still haven't seen Breaking Dawn Part 1 yet. Which is weird because I had been so into going to midnight showings of the first Twilight movies.....yes I was kind of a big "Twihard" or however you say it, especially when the first one... Continue reading

Writing a "stream of consiousness" piece is very good for every day practice. I guess it just motivates you to get more things accomplished. Plus, Neil Gaiman said that (paraphrasing here) there are a bunch of little snippets of horrible writing that everyone possesses. So it's better to just let... Continue reading

Not a lot of people have heard of the old Mexican soap opera that is oh-so-cheesy but oh-so-enjoyable to watch called "Vivan Los Ninos" (couldn't type in the "enye" in "ninos"). On Sunday mornings when I was younger, there wasn't much to watch on TV due to the fact that... Continue reading

One day when I was four years old, my eagerness for a new day of preschool was quickly shot down when the first thing I heard my best buddy Eva say to me was that we were no longer friends. There was no rhyme or reason. I hadn’t stolen any... Continue reading

I must say that Christmas 2011 was pretty great. I ate a lot, practically lazed around in my PJs for most of the day, and received total "Monica" gifts as well as a total of $450......Korean relatives like to give money rather than buying presents (which is fine with me!).... Continue reading

People immediately assume I'm some super-smart-anal-overachiever-who-speaks-six-languages-and-who-has-skipped-seven-grades kind of person because my Korean side dominantly shows. And I guess it doesn't really help when I try to avoid as much sound coming out of anyone's mouth due to my talking when I'm around people I barely know. But I can tell... Continue reading

This video.... I cannot stop watching it. I guess in a nutshell, it's a story/song about a dad lecturing his son about how it's wrong to kill the spider that scared the boy in his bedroom. And....that's it. But the animation and the way it is performed makes this simple... Continue reading

My food addiction.....Nutella. I don't necessarily encourage my parents to purchase it at the grocery store because I know I'll eat fork-fulls of it every day. No, not spoons, forks. Since I've been a vegetarian for almost a year now, I can now probably safely say that Nutella has become... Continue reading

Christmas card? I think yes. Yes, my family looks pretty normal on the outside, but in reality....we're like this. This was inspired by the bookmarks of the author, David Sedaris, who decided to simply make them pictures of decaying, disgusting teeth. My mom's friend printed out some other goofy ones...

Llamas came to my school.....again. I skipped eating lunch today and spent all of my time with: Bahama Llama, Dalai Llama, Pajama Llama, and Barack Ollama. How much do I love my school? Very much. Dalai Llama's eyes.....they look into your soul. Continue reading

When I was younger and still believed Santa Claus and his elves made toys for all the children in the world, I couldn't help but notice the conversations about "Christmas shopping." I heard it talked all the time amongst adults, as well as on TV shows and movies. And I... Continue reading

Just finished watching the film "Life in a Day". Basically, Youtube had people from all around the world film some part of their life on a specific day, July 24, 2010, and post it on the internet. Many clips were compiled together into one huge montage to show "the story... Continue reading

The Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana has a whole virtual supermarket on the upper floor to teach kids about reading nutrition facts so that they can be healthier eaters to become better people. It's complete with the plastic apples and the cartoon characters telling the public how great it... Continue reading

Even though I'm only 16 years old, I always feel like I'm 60. It's absolutely ridiculous, but it could just be a normal-hormonal-teenagey-angsty feeling right? Feeling like the past was so simple, and the present is just too....huge. But small at the same time. And dangerous. Like waiting anxiously for... Continue reading
