...and I'm doing the 30/30 challenge, which means I'll be writing a poem every day of the month!

Hopefully I can follow through!

So on Valentine's Day, :iconwildicebell: tagged me with a lovely note filled with lots of love, so I suppose I must reply to her heartfelt feelings! :P


1. You must post the rules.
2. Each person must post 6 things about themselves in their journal.
3. You have to choose 11 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
4. Go to their page and tell them you have tagged them.
5. No tag backs.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about "you're tagged if you're reading this". You legitimately have to tag 11 people.


Since she asked me some questions, I suppose I'll answer them as 5 of my 6 things about myself. Hopefully that's not cheating. :P



Do you have a special someone who you wish to be with? What are your favorite love songs?
Favorite couple you ship?
What does love mean to you?
What's your favorite chocolate?


1. Hm...I think so.


2. That's depends on my mood! Though I really like 一剪梅. ^^ Also, "First Love" by Utada Hikaru and "For Fruits Basket" and "Koibumi" from the game Rewrite and "Colors" by Maaya Sakamoto. Hm...I think I like "Colors" the most. It always has this serene feeling to it and calms me down.


3. Ah, I would have said Xelloss/Filia without hesitation before and I still like them, but it really depends on the stuff I'm watching at the moment haha. Recently I really like Mayaka and Satoshi from Hyouka! And in real life, my OTP is :iconwildicebell: and her boyfriend (you know who you are)~


4. Love comes in all forms and I can write an entire page about what psychology have to say about it and it's all really interesting (especially the Triangular Theory of Love, go check it out), but I think in the end it comes down to what Tomoyo said, "When the person I love is happy, I am happy." I feel like true love is not possessive; it's not a trade; it's not like "I love you so you must love me back." It's something freely given. I'm not saying that the possessive kind of love is not love, but I think that the possessiveness comes from insecurity about oneself and not from loving the other person.


5. Hm...I'm not sure what it's called but once I ate this French or Danish or something chocolate that is in a crispy chocolate cup filled with mocha cream and sprinkled with small white and dark chocolate balls. It was super delicious! Ah...I wish I can find the name...


6. On the topic of food, yesterday I went to a toilet-themed restaurant! The food looked unappetizing to say the least, but was surprisingly good. Everyone sat on toilet-shaped seats and there was poop-shaped ice cream served in squatting toilet-shaped plates. Haha it was a lot of fun. If you ever go to Taipei or Beijing you should go check it out. It's called Modern Toilet. :D


Ah...I don't feel like tagging people. But do it if you want to!

Happy Chinese New Year's Eve, everyone! And happy Chinese New Year to those in China!

I spent my morning translating this pretty, pretty song to celebrate. I thought it would be appropriate since it kind of shows how even in the depth of winter, the promise of spring is always near. And Chinese New Year, although in winter, celebrates the arrival of spring, which is why in Chinese it's called Spring Festival.

The first translation is loyal to the original meaning, while the second is meant to be sung. I swear this was harder than iambic pentameter...The Chinese language is so concise and has so many spondaic meters! (The meter and rhyme scheme of my English lyrics is a bit off...^^;) Ah, but that's what makes it so beautiful and irreplaceable. :) Enjoy the pretty music!

Chinese lyrics/translation:
一剪梅
A Sprig of Flowering Quince

真情像草原广阔
True love is wide as the prairie
层层风雨不能阻隔
Layers of wind and rain cannot block it
总有云开日出时候
There will always be a time when clouds part and the sun rises
万丈阳光照亮你我
Towering sunshine illuminates you and me

真情像梅花开遍
True love blossoms everywhere like the flowering quince
冷冷冰雪不能掩没
It cannot be buried by the freezing ice and snow
就在最冷
At the coldest time
枝头绽放
It blossoms at the tip of the branch
看见春天走向你我
And sees spring walking towards you and me

雪花飘飘北风啸啸
The snow flutters, the north wind howls
天地一片苍茫
Heaven and earth is endlessly white
一剪寒梅
A sprig of flowering quince
傲立雪中
Proudly stands in the snow
只为伊人飘香
Its puts out its fragrance only for that one person

爱我所爱无怨无悔
Loving my love, I have neither complaints nor regrets
此情长留
This feeling will stay everlasting
心间
In the heart

English lyrics:

A Sprig of Flowering Quince

The prairie of love is so wide
That to drown it rain won't suffice
There'll come a time clouds part, sun shines
Dawn will light up our winter skies

The blossoms of love the earth embrace
The ice cannot cloak its tender glow
In coldest times
It blooms and grows
Watching springtime coming in the snow

The north wind chases shivering snowflakes
The world depleted of hue
A sprig of blossoms
Standing in snow
Gives its fragrance to you

For loving my love, I've no complaints
This love will stay
Always

Tagged by :icondingdingy: a long, long time ago. Finally got time to respond.

1. Your first crush, and describe your first crush on that person plz.
Sore wa himitsu desu~ (hint hint...I hope you get the reference.)

2. Do you ever dwell on past occurrences? Would you like to erase certain memories from your mind?
Yeah, I guess sometimes. I sometimes indulge in nostalgia...ah, the good times. But I think I do it less often now than before, maybe because I'm pretty satisfied right now, despite the stress. When I didn't know English nostalgia would be a way to escape, but not so much anymore. Sure, there are some embarrassing and sad moments, but I don't think I would erase them from my memory, because they do serve as a lesson and a part of my journey to who I am today. :)

3. What would my spirit animal (if u know ur pokemanz, my spirit pokemon) be?
Geez, that's difficult...I don't know my Pokemon, but I think in terms of animals, maybe a dog or a monkey? :P

4. Something/ trait you love about yourself
I like the fact that I'm persistent...albeit somewhat perfectionistic. ^^;

5. Most memorable dream you ever had
Haha I wrote it on Facebook once. It was the most lucid dream I've ever had. Let me copy and paste the most memorable section here:

The scene then shifted. I was in a restaurant...Fresh Choice maybe? And then I walked out and I was in a convenience store. I felt terribly lost and thought that I would never be able to get out of this maze of stores, but I ran to the door and was relieved when I saw that I was outside.

The night was dark. I was flying over the buildings. For some reason, this time, I was not that afraid. I flew into a corridor. I was trapped again, but I suddenly realized, standing outside what seemed to be a classroom, that I was in a dream. Though I panicked and initially wanted to will myself to wake up, I realized that this was a good opportunity to explore my mind. Remembering inception, I wondered what kind of architecture I would find. True to my expectations, I walked into a house that seemed impossible to get out. I panicked a little, but I thought that I could will myself out with my mind. And true to my predictions, I found a passage that I didn't realize existed before.

I walked into a semi-dark room with wooden floors and rushed out into the garden, thankful to be free at last. Then I heard my mom talking on the telephone. I flew to the window and listened. I forget what she said, but it seemed to me that she was talking to the past me, the little me, on the telephone. She gave me some sound advice that I can't remember right now, but it had something to do with how I shouldn't be afraid to be honest, and that she'll love me no matter what. I suddenly felt really sad that now I'm outside and she's inside, talking to the past me. I felt that I grew up.

When she hang up, I hid in the trees. But then she opened the windows and said, "You can come out now." So I did. She told me that even now I can come home. She said that no matter what I'll still be her child, and that we can go home and make cookies together.

But I suddenly felt that this was a trick: it was "an evil deceiver," so to speak, that wants to trick me back into that maze of a house, which was connected to the shopping mall and the rest of "society." I refused and started to fly upward. My mom gave me her blessings, and I started crying in my dream. I came down to hug her, but then she said that I can go back again, and thus I escaped, afraid that she might trick me again. As I flew away again, she smiled and waved at me.

There were tall buildings on each side of me as I flew, as if to trap me. But it was weird... This was the first time in any of my dreams in which I didn't feel afraid of flying. Instead, I felt relief that I was finally free.

Images flashed past me. I found myself in different advertisements. One moment I was trying to fly out of a juice bottle, the next I was breaking through a poster for clothes. It was like all the symbols of society flashed past me and I had to break through each and every one of them. Finally, I found myself in Fresh Choice again, and exited into the corridor with the convenience store. I rushed outside into the dark and crisp night.

At first I was still feeling pursued and trapped, and I wanted to fly again to escape. But then I realized: it's okay. I can wake up at any moment. So I kneeled down. I put my head in my hands and closed my eyes. I willed myself to wake up.

And I did.

6. If You Had To Choose Between Money, Fame And Freedom; What Would You Choose And Why?
Freedom. Haha, I wouldn't take money and fame, even if you pay me (get it? :D). It's just way too much responsibility, and I think I would start being paranoid. Besides, "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely." And "money is power." By transitive property, money corrupts.

7. If you wrote a book, what would the title be? OuO
Haha I have started a few books that I feel like I'll never finish...^^; So far my favorite project is "A Star Fell Down Tonight," where Fate falls in love with this princess who hates him/her/it.

8. Scars? Birthmarks? Where  i want to know.
Uh...I think I have some birthmarks somewhere on my arm? I forget...^^; Nothing super strange.

9. The person you want to meet most?
My partner digimon!!!
Oh, a person...Hm...Madoka. Oh wait she's a goddess...Then Tomoyo from CCS...wait no, Xelloss (see question 1). :P

10. The color of underwear you are wearing RIGHT NOW
...I don't remember and I do NOT feel like checking. -.-


And I also got tagged by :iconcurlyswirl:!

1. Favorite kind of food?
Haha, rice I suppose. Staple Asian goodness.

2. What animes do you really like besides Digimon?
Puella Magi Madoka Magica is amazing!!! Higurashi also!!! I also really love Cardcaptor Sakura, Hetalia, and Slayers!

3. Favorite time of the day?
Hm...afternoon, but only if I don't have much to do.

4. Favorite color?
Blue-ish Lavender

5. Do you think it would be more fun to be the hero or the villian?
Hahaha...Being a villain might be fun, actually, but I don't think I have that in me. I do not crave world domination, thank you very much. I have enough to worry about on my own without worrying about the world. :P

6. Do you like video games? If so, whats your favorite?
Not especially, but I tried playing Portal at my friend's house and it was fun! :D

7. Have you ever been on a plane?
Yep! Lots of times!

8. Do you prefer subs over dubs?
Yes! Very much so! I don't get bothered by reading subs at all, but I get bothered by inadequate dubbing skills, and especially when people change the background music. Like in English Digimon. -.-

9.  Do you have a Favorite Disney movie?
The Lion King! I love the music! Oh, and Winnie-the-Pooh. :P

10. Favorite zoo animal?
Only zoo animals huh...Hm...panda? :D

11. Do you like Pokemon? If so, which is your favorite?
Haha not extremely. But I do like Latias a lot. And Mew.


I guess I'll tag people too. Going with :icondingdingy: personal questions theme...
1. What fictional character can you most relate to and why?
2. What historical period would you like to live in?
3. If you could rename yourself, what would your name be and why?
4. What motto do you live by?
5. Do you have a virtue or character trait that you wish you had? What is it?
6. What is your greatest fear? Any phobias?
7. If tomorrow is the end of the world, how would you spend today?
8. If you need to sacrifice one of your senses, which would it be?
9. What is your favorite book?
10. Take this test and tell me your results!

That day, you took         away my poetry
And turned my words into     s i l e n c e between notes
Your carefully prepared mask of laughter and sunshine
Dark caves filled with unshed tears like an underground spring
The effluent stream that you let me touch. water music.
Because I know one day I will never see you again
I'm afraid of starting something
That will never stop beating
Forget you (I wish)
I can
Going on complete hiatus until June. I'm grounding myself due to my dismal math grade...I am determined to make this the abyss of my academic career. See you guys in the summer!
Sorry to everyone who wrote to me! I really want to reply but I'm super busy right now with school and badminton and...just everything!!! I'll be gone or unresponsive until at least the summer...Sorry again! My messages have accumulated up to 263 now...:(

note me



Hello everyone!

Okay, first of all, finals are over! I think I got all A's, but I'm not certain...Still, that was such a hard semester. One of the most stressful of my life.

(As usual) sorry for not replying! I'll use my usual excuse: I'm super busy. But really, I have no excuse...It's just me having a headache whenever I see that I have 200+ messages and feel unmotivated to go through all of them.

Current event wise, I'm sure you guys had already got a bunch of journals on SOPA and PIPA, so I'll not go into it too much. But I do applaud Wikipedia for its blackout.

What else? Well, I'm still super into Hetalia. It's way too obsessive for my own good...But it's okay. I'm studying English and history by reading Hetalia fanfiction. I think. :D (But no really, some of the stuff people come up with are amazing, literary and historical-wise.)

Still working on my fanfic/original writing when I have time (read: none at all). I joined this awesome group: nationsneverdie.deviantart.com…, as China. And now I suddenly discover that I don't know Chinese history as well as American history...Or at all. *facepalm* Asian-fail. But I'm reading Wikipedia about early Chinese history and it's really interesting! Hopefully I'll turn in my first prompt soon...Hopefully.

Finalement, je dois pratiquer mon français pour l'examen AP! J'ai trouvé aujourd'hui, au milieu de mon examen finale de français, que je échouerai à l'examen AP si mon français ne pas améliorer...maintenant. C'est la première fois que je dois étudier le français...^^;

P.S. I love this journal skin! I love journal skins in general...:D But premium membership is too much money and too wasteful...Sighs. I'll just wait until the next free promotion!

Attention all fans of Knite and :iconyuumei:! A bunch of characters have all suddenly appeared on Facebook starting last night! Including: 2 Sen's, Kai, Ling, Fei, Yu Zhen, Min-min, Sen's stepmother, the squirrel metaphor, Sen's kite, the sofa, the stars, the windmill, the barbed wire fence, Sen's popsicle, Kai's money, Kai's cell phone, Sen's tie, and even the smog.

I have spent my Sunday befriending inanimate objects and engaging in epic poking wars. And I have finals soon.

This will ruin your life but...Join in! :D It's fun!
Because :iconpwnedbypineapple: featured me...

Be one of the first 10 people to comment on this journal entry, and I will add you to the Featured List!

For each of the 10 first people answering this journal, I will put his/her name and the three deviations I like most from his/her gallery on the list.

IMPORTANT:
If you answer, you'll have to do the same in your journal. The idea of this is not to get a free feature; it's to spread art around for everyone.

...Let's see if I can actually get 10 people to comment this time. :D

Post this as "I screwed up __% of my teenage life"

Wow...I'm less of a good student than I thought...^^;
Somewhere in the Hetalia fandom, someone said this of pairing fanfiction, "Remember, nations would always love themselves the most."

I realized the truth in this, and it made me think. Is patriotism an uniting or divisive force? On one hand it unites the people within that country, but it makes them exclude others.

It is human nature to categorize themselves into "us" and "them." However, does it have to be this way? What if we all become one country?

In a personal sense, this would never work. To have a successful relationship with someone, you need to keep a sense of self. It's like in Madoka, Sayaka lost her sense of self, and that lead to her demise, showing the importance of loving oneself.  

I recently learned in Environmental Science the harmful effects of merging ecosystems. Because different, isolated places have different environments, they make for a total diversity of niches, and thus a diversity of species. Merging ecosystems would bring species from the same niche into competition with each other, causing one to be dominant and the others to become extinct. Thus, merging ecosystems would have a detrimental effect on biodiversity, which is in turn harmful to an ecosystem's resilience to disturbances, because assimilation makes it easy to wipe out communities in one blow.

Hetalia has shown that countries are really just a collection of people, and thus have the same feelings as human beings do. Thus, applying the lesson of real life, Madoka, and environmental science to this case, I think that we cannot become one country, because then we would lose the cultural diversity that makes us who we are. We would not have so many differing opinions that balance each other out, and we would become assimilated, making mob rule easy. Countries check and balance each other.

However, there is one difference between merging ecosystems and merging countries: we are all one species. The definition of species is that we can reproduce with each other, or in other words, connect with each other. Nature meant for us to share common traits, making us able to understand one another. Thus, even as we maintain our own national identities, I think we should try to understand one another. We have that capability; nature gave that to us. This is one of the reasons I love Hetalia: it celebrates our differences, and shows us we are all really the same in the end.

Thus, my conclusion. Patriotism is essential: countries must love themselves the most. Arrogance is unavoidably human in these cases, and sometimes, fear. But through understanding we can at least alleviate these side effects of being human, and celebrate our differences.

This is not to say that we will always live together in peace and harmony. Not at all. Being human means having misunderstandings and conflict and war. But through understanding our differences, I believe we can make sure that the worst won't happen. That even if we will keep on trying to destroy each other, we will never succeed.
Oh wow! Deviantart just got more awesome! :D I love this journal-favorite feature and Stash! :love: And no more HTML codes for writing! Yay!

Also, welcome to all the new members of the Digimon icon clan! I have recently been extremely busy with school, so might be as active as I could be, but I'm looking forward to meeting all of you! :D

Finally, everyone, please help a friend get her father back! Spread the message!

Tagged!

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 17, 2011, 8:28 PM


I was tagged by :iconskiyomi:, who is an amazing writer, so I'm happily and willingly doing this meme! :D

I've done the "10 things about myself" too many times to count, so I'll just skip that...^^; Now for her questions:

1.Who is your favorite character from a book?
Such a hard first questions! I honestly don't know, so I'll just go with a few of my favorite books.
The Book Thief: Rudy Steiner. He is really such an amazing character that is so heartbreakingly innocent. And Death. He is so hilarious yet insightful with a touch of humanity.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Daedalus, Artemis, and Zoe. First is a complex and tragic genius, second is an amazing goddess, and third is a proud huntress that makes me proud to be a girl. Oh, and Annabeth and Hermes (hilarious!) and...just about everyone in there.
A Separate Peace: Gene, the narrator. I read this last year in English, and...wow, it's amazing. I can really connect to Gene. I feel like he is the darker side of me, the person I would have become had I not had so many people to support me. And his revelation at the end is heartbreaking...
Bartimeus Trilogy: Bartimeus. Because come on, he's just awesome. Who else can talk so much in footnotes? Oh wait, there's someone else...
Tiffany Aching Series: Tiffany and the Wintersmith! First one is because of her down-to-earth attitude, second because...it's just so sad!
The Little Prince: The Little Prince. Because he made me cry.

2. Are you an organized or a disorganized person?
Uh...I'm trying to be organized? But it's not working very well, so I guess I'm disorganized..^^;

3. What did you want to be when you grew up when you were a kid?
When I was young I wanted to be an expert at everything: scientist (I didn't know it was a general term back then...), astronomist, geologist, novelist, chemist, linguist, and all other -ist. And then later I wanted to be a teacher because my pre-school teacher sucked and made me cry, so I wanted to be a good teacher that won't make children cry. And now...I'm not sure what I want to be. A teacher and a writer, probably. But my life goal is to do something for the environment, but I'm just not sure how to go about it.

4. What's your favorite animal?
Hummingbirds!!! They're so cute and beautiful and hyper and fluffy! And their wings make the symbol of infinity, did you know that (got that from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button)? Backwards figure eight!

5. What would you consider your phobias?
I don't know...Heights?

Wait, I think that actually is a phobia. I always panic when I go on steep slopes with a cliff beside it on hiking trips.

Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia. If you know what that means you win the internet.

6. What was your first job?
...No job yet.

7. What's your drink?
Um...Dihydrogen monoxide?

Oh wait, I know. Pearl milk tea! Oh, and those Asian drinks with jello in them!

8. If you could meet any three real people in history, who would they be?
John Adams because he defended the British soldiers after the Boston Massacre and because he put aside political difference and made peace with France during his presidency. And because he's actually one of the few to do what he believes in.

Robert E. Lee because he is honorable and protected his home, even though he did not support slavery. He is also an amazing battle strategist.

I feel like I should put down some people from other countries...^^; My American history course is getting to me.

Um...Robespierre from the French Revolution. He kind of turned crazy at the end, but his psychologic development never ceased to fascinate me.

I feel ashamed I can't think of anyone from Chinese history I would like to meet...^^; I should know my own country's history. I mean, I love Chinese history, but there is no one character that stood out in my mind so much that I would like to meet them.

9. What time do you usually get to sleep/wake up?
Sleep: Depends on homework. Terribly late. Like after 12.
Wake: Too early. All the time. 7:00 or so. But I sleep in on weekends.

10. If you could live in any fictional universe, what one would it be?
Another hard one! Um...Digimon, I would have to say. I want to meet Tenseimon (my partner digimon OC)!

I shall not tag anyone because I got to go do homework and don't have time to think of questions. Do it if you want!

Sad News for Digimon Fans...

You may have heard of this already, but Wada Kouji, the lead singer for all Digimon opening songs, was diagnosed with cancer...

Stupid cancer...It took away Takanori Arisawa, the original composer for Digimon seasons 1-4, too. I'm sad now...:( I wish he recovers from the bottom of my heart. Digimon won't be the same without him.

(On another note...This journals skin is so cool!!! :heart:)

First of all...Yay for free journal skins! :D

Anyway, as many of you have heard, Apple's founder Steve Jobs has died. For some reason I'm kind of sad about it...I found out about the news on an Apple computer.

Recently, I've been extremely busy with school, so sorry if I have not replied to your messages! I have literally 205 unreplied messages now, I'm not even kidding...^^; But this is just to say thank you all so much for replying and faving and wishing me a happy birthday! They are all really appreciated! :hug:

I've been really obsessed with Madoka Magica and Hetalia as of late...I'm working on a Madoka analysis, actually, and a Hetalia fanfic (historically correct, thank you very much), so be expecting that soon! Well, maybe not soon...But just expect it sometime.

There's also a Digimon Takari fanfic that I've been working on for a while...Hopefully I can finally contribute some Digimon to my gallery. :D

Now for some amazing AMVs that I've been meaning to share for a while:

Madoka-This song is so beautiful, and the video is epic!

Madoka-Cosplay video. There people are on Deviantart, too. And can I just say that this is my new favorite song?

Hetalia-This. You got to watch this. It's awesome. This is exactly why I love Hetalia...It's so sad that countries don't get along!

Hetalia-World music...It's so hilarious and entertaining! And I found some great music in other languages through this video!

And since I'm using the tree-hugging journal skin, this is an environmental video in French. It's so beautiful...and sad.
