I am so sorry that I have not updated in a long time! I’ve been busy redoing my room and working on a post for a blog tour. Other than those two things, nothing has really been going on. I’ve been trying not to fall back into my rut, it’s hard, but I’m trying. I know that as soon as this year is over with I’ll feel so much better. There won’t really be that much to this post but I thought that I would make a post just for the heck of it.
I’ve been on such a Resident Evil kick ever since the trailers and talk about Resident Evil: Afterlife started! A month or two ago, I bough a Playstation with the first three Resident Evils! I already know the whole back story but I can finally see it through the video game perspective instead of online and the movies.
Speaking of Resident Evil, I finally went to see Resident Evil: Afterlife with my mom! I’ve waited three years for this and it lived up to the franchise! All the action, blood and everything was amazing! Although I hated that it was in 3D but the 3D was pretty good unlike other films that I’ve seen in 3D. I think that it’s safe to say that Afterlife is my second favorite Resident Evil movie with Apocalypse being my favorite. I just hope that we won’t have to wait another three years for the next installment of the series EDIT
We also went to go see Resident Evil: Afterlife again! I noticed a few things before that I did not see the first time. I also realized how much I love this movies soundtrack, how amazing Ali and Wenworth are as Claire and Chris and just how amazing Wesker really is. I still want to know what type of hair gel he uses. :)
Resident Evil: Outbreak, Resident Evil: Outbreak File 2, Resident Evil: Code Veronica X, Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition
Resident Evil, Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
All three live action movies and the CGI movie, Degeneration
Resident Evil 5 strategy guide and Biohazard Archives.
(The Biohazard Archives is the Japanese version of Resident Evil Archives)
After I saw the movie. I have my mom's ticket and my own and I'm wearing the 3D glasses too!
A couple of weeks ago, about two, I went to Best Buy to get a new computer. My Dell still works fine but Safari stopped working after I installed the newer version of the web browser and iTunes. Internet Explorer even stopped working, leaving Monzilla the only one working and I hate that one. So at Best But I started looking at the Mac computers and choose a Macbook Pro. Although the biggest desk top, which was a tad bit cheaper than my Macbook Pro, is one that I would not mind getting in the near future. My camera's batteries are dead right now so no new pictures of my computer. My next entry I will be posting some. :)
We also went to Game Stop and I was able to pick up a few games and a new Playstation 3 Controller! I really like my new controller. It’s the new pink one but it looks a whole lot better than in my picture(s) and in the advertisements. It seems like it's a tad bit smaller than the controller that comes with the PS3 but that could just be me.
Silent Hill: Homecoming(PS3), Silent Hill 3 and Silent Hill 4: The Room
My new PS3 controller!
There is really nothing else so I guess that I will leave you with pictures of things that I've gotten last month.
Anna Tsuchiya Rule CD+DVD
Shout In The Rain Single
Umbrella Corporation Decal
I Now Pronounce You Someone Else ARC
(For my book blog blog tour and contest)
Sailor MoonS Volume 1 & 2
Ayumi Hamasaki L Single+DVD and Crossroad Single+DVD
My next entry will be better and hopefully more entertaining. I think that I'll make a new update on Halloween or the day after. I'm not quit sure yet. Until next time!
So sorry that I have not been updating regularly or anything. I would say that I've been extremely busy but then that would be a lie. Why do I feel like I'm reliving deja vu when I typed that? Nothing exciting has been going on, so no exciting post or anything. You know how in almost every single post I say that I am working on cleaning my room and clearing out things that I don't need? Well it's partly true. I started, and it looks better now than it did before, but suddenly I stopped. I really don't know why but I need to finish before August. That's the month when I have to redo the whole math thing ... again! It does not upset me it just makes me frustrated. I want to just scream at the top of my lungs about it sometimes. I feel like I've been falling back into my major rut like earlier this year. I mean, I am a whole lot better than I was earlier but all of a sudden it's like I don't want to do anything anymore, like I want to give up. I know that I've come so far and I'm not one to give up. I'm sure that when I finished clearing out my room and cleaning it, I will feel a lot better.
Last week I got a package in the mail! I pre-ordered a few things back in March and they finally came in! Four CD's and one DVD, with two posters and one photo book.
Mmmmh, I wonder what could be in the box?
Oh pretty green, I forgot what you call it.
Look at the goodies inside!
This poster came with the MOON/Blossom CD+DVD and the Blossom/MOON CD. I have two but I might sell the other one. I only have a use for one. :)
This poster came with the Live Countdown Future Classics DVD! I love this one so much, I'm thinking about framing it. ^^
And all of my goodies!
Ayumi Hamasaki MOON/Blossom CD+DVD with poster
Ayumi Hamasaki Blossom/MOON CD with poster
Ayumi Hamasaki Live Countdown Future Classics DVD with poster
Anna Tsuchiya Brave Vibration Single CD with photo book
Anna Tsuchiya Atashi Single CD
That's all for this boring post. Hopefully next time I will have something exciting with some exciting pictures to post! \(^.^)/
Goal To A Happier Me
Step One: Get Rid Of Unnecessary Stuff
Keeping old stuff is different then keeping old memories. Every piece of fabric, toy, book ect. Can mean a lot to someone but to keep it all will start to affect someone too. By getting rid of all these pieces of old fabrics are a good thing. Getting rid of old books and toys is also a good thing.You are allowed to keep a few old memories, just not every single one.
-Keep maybe one old shirt from Elementary school; don’t keep pants/shorts/skirts/ect.
-Keep a couple of old books but don’t keep every single one.
-Keep a few toys or if you have too, put your favorite old toys in your toy box and store it away.
If you don’t want to throw any of it out, then you can donate the stuff to your local Good Will, Salvation Army or Homeless Shelter. Any and all helps other people.Step Two: Make Yourself feel good
When you make yourself up, most people tend to feel really good about them selves. Even though you may look and feel pretty, depending on your weight, you can still feel horrible about yourself. By exercising more and eating correctly, you can be on a quicker and faster way to a happier you.Remember, you don’t have to go full vegetarian/vegan to be healthy. Red meat is actually very good for you.
-Monitor how much you eat for a week; write down what you ate for breakfast lunch and dinner on paper. On Saturday sit down and read over what you have written and make changes. Try to cut out junk food, soda of any kind, how much bread/pasta/ect you eat.
-Exercise is also part of being healthy. There is no need to kill yourself with extreme work outs. Just doing a ten minute a day exercise is good enough. If you feel comfortable after doing the ten minute work out, then go on to something else.
-If exercise is not your thing, you can always take up some kind of dance. It is also a workout but it keeps you busy by having a ton of fun. Hip hop, Zumba, Ball Room, ect. Heck! You can stay in your own living room and practice the latest Lady Gaga or Britney Spears dance!
Remember to take the exercise one day at a time! Don’t over do yourself and have plenty of water with you!Step Three: Clearing your mind, body and soul
Stress is one thing that comes with being alive. No matter how small or how big the stress is, it takes a lot of energy out of you. Sometimes, depending on how bad the stress is, you can start loosing it a little bit. At that point you start to slip into depression which can make you not care anymore. So if you’re feeling stressed or even depressed, clear out everything!
-Yoga! This also applies to step number two but yoga is also very relaxing.
-Listing to classical music helps bring the chaos out of your life for a few minutes. Depending on how long you actually listen to the music of course.
-Some people find even reading a book can help clear your mind, body and soul. Step Four: A New You
When you make over yourself, you want to feel good about what you have just done. Don’t worry about regretting what you’ve done, you can always change it! Try a new hair style, hair color, new clothing, anything goes!
-Try a new hair style and color. If you don’t like your new hair cut you have two options. Option One: Go to a different stylist and ask if there is anything they can do to save your hair. Option Two: Wait for it to grow back. Remember it is just hair and it WILL grow back! Don’t stress!
-A new style can make you feel so wonderful! If you’re normally wearing shirts and jeans, spice it up some. Try some dress shirts or a skirt. Something that’s fun! You can also try fun colors too. Bright, neon types with a ton of cute bright costume jewelry. Sure it may seem childish but you’ll have a fun time!
Once you’ve gotten rid of unnecessary items, feel good about yourself, cleared your mind, body and soul and got a new look, you should start feeling happier about yourself and your life. You may not at first but keep it all up and hopefully sooner or later you’ll feel wonderful!Other Tips
1) Get rid of any negative influences in your life. They may be a good friend but sometimes getting rid of friends who help bring you down, so to speak, is a good thing. It helps you focus on more important thing in your life.
2) Put fun songs on your iPod! Ones with upbeat sounds, happy lyrics and more can help you start feeling better about yourself. Dance Dance Revolution songs help me by getting up and acting silly!
3) Speaking of DDR, DDR is also a fun way of exercising. Sure it may be a little silly but that’s alright, it’s good to act funny/silly/crazy/ect once in a while. No matter how old you are!
4) Spend a few days by yourself and rethink your life. Ask yourself questions like, “What do I plan on doing when I grow up?” or “Is my current situation worth feeling horrible over?” Or something along those lines. It’s amazing how you can feel by yourself just thinking.
5) Don’t let drama into your life anymore than it has too! When a friend or a family member starts talking about their drama, politely ask them to stop. Just remember to use manners when asking!
6) When a friend or a family member calls to hang out, don’t say that you’re too busy or you’ll hang out next time. Go hang out! Even if you’re sitting at each other’s house watching a horrible movie, it’s better than being by yourself. (But being by yourself is something that you don’t want to do all the time)
7) Do thing’s you have always wanted to do! No matter how silly or how hard they may be, you never know what happens when you try. Thing’s may start to happen. Just go out and try. Remember: Never Say Never!
8) Do not spend unnecessary money! Whenever you get upset or mad and you tend to spend money on things that you don’t need, you have to stop! Take deep breathes before you log online or get in the car to shop. You never want to waste money on things you don’t need.
I got board earlier today, so I decided to type this up. Hopefully someone will get some use out of it. :)
I was going to post this yesterday, Sunday, but I was too lazy to actually type.
On Wednesday I was supposed to go to my
sister's graduation but I ended up not going. I felt really bad about it too, I still do, but I had to do what made me feel better. Not that I don't like hanging out with here, there are just some problems with other
members in the house. But I'm going to make it up to her, not quit sure how but I know I will.
. Other than that happening, nothing exciting is going on right now. I am in the middle of some heavy duty cleaning. It is kind of hard because I want to put everything in it's rightful place the first time but I know that I have to set things where ever I can so I can get things done. Ugh it's so complicated and exhausting.
This will be a short post but there will be plenty of picture's so here we go.
Last Tuesday we went to Crispers and Books-A-Million. I did get a few books but not as many as I tend to get when I go to a bookstore. I really love Crispers though. They have some amazing wraps! If I could, I would eat lunch there for the rest of my life!
A few weeks ago I ordered a contact case off of eBay and it finally came in! It is a licensed Sanrio item but I could care less. Look at how cute it is!
My cute jewelry box came in as well. I was not expecting it to be as tiny as it is but it works out just fine! I am using it to store all of my deco items in for now.
When I ordered my contact cases, I had also ordered a Nintendo DS Game case. I think that I might order one more or two. I have one more slot left open until it's full. xD
I finally got my MAC Lady Gaga lipstick in the mail! It only cost me $14.00 with free shipping! The MAC website had a special going on where you got free shipping.
When I ordered my MAC Lipstick, I also ordered two eyeliners and a concealer brush from NYX. The eyeliner is nice a creamy, I can't wait to use all of them!
The pencil case came in on Saturday and is cuter and I thought it would be! I got this for my purse since I tend to carry a lot of pens.
The last item is something that I have been wanting for years! The last time I saw it in stores was about ten years ago. I should have gotten a few of the items back then but whatever. I got a really good price with this since most of the toys are priced at over $100 now. It is Mint Sealed In Box! Well it was until I took it out, put batteries in it and awed at it. xD I have always been a de-boxer. But don't worry, I put it back in the box.
As you can see, I tend to have a pretty exciting week. Just kidding! One day I will actually have some fun things to say but until next time. (^.^)
I am so sorry for not posting regularly like I said that I would! I'd say that I've been extremely busy but that would be a lie.
To be honest, I get too lazy to type but that will change soon! I promise. Like always, nothing has really been going on. A few weeks ago I finally went to Ikea! I've never been to one before so it was a fun adventure. Although when we arrived, I didn't feel too great but later on I did. Strange but whatever. I went with my step sister and a few of her friends. I kind of wished we had gone to the Ikea in Tampa instead of Orlando but hey, I like small road trips so it's alright with me!
I found a really nice bed at the store. It's low to the ground, almost like the ones they have in Japan, but it's really expensive. I also found nice bookshelves. Oh, they also had a place to eat in the store! Honestly, the food was pretty good. I wished I had taken a picture but next time I will.
On Wednesday my mom and I went out for the day. We got lunch at Crispers
, went to Books-A-Million
, Wal*Mart, and a few other places that I cannot remember at this time! I also went to sign up for my fifth time to take the math portion. While driving away I think i may have figured out why I have such a problem with math. I think that I may have a math disability. I can't seem to retain anything that I'm taught. It's not that I'm lazy and don't want to learn, it's that I have problems with it! It's like after 15 or 20 minutes, I seem to forget what I was taught. It's kind of hard to explain with writing, I'm better with speaking about it honestly. Anyways, that had to be the best day that I've had so far this year
We also talked and laughed until we could not breathe and till our sides hurt!
I had the East Coast Chicken! It's just so yummy!
I got these books at BAM
I also bought two Jane Austin Bookmarks!
This is how it was packaged. Very cute! ^^
I also bought this really cute iPod holder! I got it until I get a clear plastic iPod holder and deco it but I love it! :D
That's all for this post. Until next time!
Oh before I end this, I was thinking about something. I think that I will just use my LiveJournal for fandom stuff and this as my personal blog. :)
I saved both of these fun recipes from Tumblr
. I have the links to where they originated from but I have to find them first. Please note that I do not take credit for either of these.
I can't wait until I get to try both of these out!

Today is my 19th birthday. I'm 19. Yay! :D
I got a pretty amazing cake if I do say so myself and such a sweet card. :D
This is the cake:
I'll post pictures of the cake & card later. :DHAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!!!!! :D
So I've been looking for my camera plug in thing so I can upload pictures but I have yet to find it. My batteries are also dead. :(
I'm looking for it though. ^^
So I've basically been ignoring this blog since the last time I made an actual post. Last time I was way too busy with midterms and then the parents came up to see me. It was also the week of Halloween. Three things happening on my favorite day of the year was way to much but I balanced it out well. I made B's on all my midterms and one A. They were hard but I'm glad that it's something that I love doing. Although this semester I switched my major to Photography. Somethings went down last semester that made my change my mind to change my major. Though I will never give up on a dream. Once I start something that involves something that I love, I never give up.
So what's been happening with me lately?
Well a lot of thing's are going on right now that it's kind of hard for me to actually believe. Good things and horrible things but I guess that that's life. Come this fall, 2010, I probably won't be coming back to AAU. A few reasons, 1) It's way to expensive, 2) They literally expect you to know all
of what your major is. I'm there to learn about that major not be told that I should know quit a bit about it. Well I'm sorry but unlike other classmates I never had the money to do that kind of stuff when I was younger but I'm blessed to go to a school like AAU. I learned a ton of stuff from my previous major which will not only help me with acting but with singing as well. But with Photography, it's like pulling teeth! I don't know a thing about MAC's. I'm a bloody PC for crying out loud! :(
But anyways, I've been looking at USF, University of San Francisco. It's in the same area as AAU and it's not
a private College, which means that it's a little less expensive. If I can go there, I need to take the SAT's this Summer, boo, so that I can apply and hopefully
get in. I love San Francisco to death and I will move there. ^^
Besides school nothing else is really going on. I'm still going through major 2010 Winter Olympic withdraws but good things came out of everything with it.
That's about all I can think of right now, so until my next post.
I haven't really posted in a few weeks, so I thought that I would make a post now. Not much has been happening lately just me thinking over things and using my brain to it's full capacity. I can already see slight streaks of smoke coming from the top of my head, that can't be a good thing. I recently got Ayumi Hamasaki's new album, Rock In Roll' Circus
in the mail. It came with a really cute poster, it had the image just like the CD only cover. Last night I listened to that album for over seven hours straight. I just wished US iTunes had her new album but sadly they don't have that one yet. They do however have all of her previous ones. Besides that epic moment for me, it's been raining and that's it. Of course I've been busy but that's to be expected.
I've just been enjoying my time that I have let until the Summer. The last day of school is May 22, 2010. My last class is Wednesday 19, 2010. I'm really happy/glad that I was able to get Thursday and Friday's off. If I did not, I'd have to go home either Saturday or Sunday, not something I would have wanted. This Summer we might, and I use might as a yes, go to Disney World! Although I've been asking my mom if we could go to the Harry Potter Theme Park or just go to both. She's thinking about it but either is just fine with me. I'm so excited to go, have not been to Disney World in years
. I don't think that I have anything else to add, so until my next post. :)
This post is brought to you by Plushy! :D
All Good Things Must Come To An End
School has officially ended! My first time away at college was ... interesting. A ton of stuffed happened, good and bad but it was all worth it. Basically it's all apart of life and growing up. This summer I'll have to take my SAT's because I was home schooled and never took them. Also because AAU did not require you to have them. But since I am going to a regular college in the fall, I'll need to take them. Going to school in Florida is something that I never wanted but it's a little bit cheaper and I need that. I hope that this time everything will go alright so I can make at least one of my dreams come true.
This week I need to start working on my room. It's time for a change and I need a change. Not only will I be cleaning the mess that there is right now but hopefully I can get rid of this hideous dresser that does not match anything else in my room and put my clothing in my closet. Living at AAU has thought me to deal with a tiny closet and I actually liked it. Although my closet is a bit different than any of my other ones that I've had, I can work with it. This closet also doubles as a storage place in the very back. But anyways, I'll be getting rid of old clothing and things that I don't need. Organizing books, movies, CD's and anything else I can. Getting rid of things that I don't need or things that I want to keep but put them in storage. I just really want to keep busy this Summer.
I realized that I have three blogs to which I have different uses for them. Why do I have three? At first I never though of it but now sitting and typing this I know why.
- Livejournal - I started this one in 2008. I think the day before or of Thanksgiving, something like that. I sort of started it off like a normal blog but then I started blogging about fandoms, picspams, graphics and more. Then the communities play a major part of my LJ. But now I have it for not only the communities but so I can post links to my picspams, post videos, blog about fandom stuff. Very few anymore are actual "blog" posts.
- Kilees Closet - I actually started this blog out of pure boredom in the Summer of 2009. I guess the reason why is so I can share my thoughts and opinions on books and how I felt to other people.
- Bunny - And this of course there is this one. I started this one in the Fall of 2009 so I could share my experience of my first year away at College. But now I'm starting to use it as my regular blog not only for school but for everything else as well.
I guess I should get rid of one or two of them but I will never do that. I like to keep myself busy, even if it's in front of the computer. I know I know, it sounds like I have no life and that I am a person who can't go a day without being on the computer. But in reality, I have a life but I can't go a full day without my computer. :)
I guess I should end this post now but in my next post I hope that I'll have something interesting to blog about. And I hope that I will finally have a new UBS for my cameras memory card. :)
