I am home [22 Dec 2004|12:01am]
YAY!!! My finals are finally over and I am finally home (if I can really call it home). Sadly, I can only stay for 2 weeks...but I hope to make the best of it. I also brought back Top Dog hot links if anyone care to have. Okai...I'm really tired and exhausted...time to finally rest.

new record [03 Dec 2004|12:09am]
YAY!!!I have beaten my old record. I have been awake for 64 hours without any napping or sleeping. Doing two all niters in a row is great. I wonder if I can go for three later in the year. But now for a good long rest.

It's all over [23 Nov 2004|10:23pm]
Aiyah...It's over...It's all over. Ochem midterm was hell. I failed..along with majority of the class. Oh joy...I hope...or the curve is going to kill me. Not a great way to start Thanksgiving. But some good news...I get to be a TA next semester. I get to have my own students. What joy it shall be. Also I get to go home. Finally some time to relax. Okai...off to assasinate some peeps. tah tah

being allergic to nuts is awesome [28 Oct 2004|05:08pm]

Woohoo [27 Oct 2004|07:58am]
YAY!!!...The first phase of midterm season is over. Now for major slacking off for about 2 weeks. There is really a big problem with classes that are webcast...you just lose the incentive to come to class anymore. I get to enjoy 8 lovely hours of bio lecture. woohoo. And now the rainy season is about to arrive, more reason to be overjoyed.

school sucks [23 Sep 2004|01:31am]
It's only been four weeks of school and it feels like I'm 8 weeks behind. I have yet to open any of my expensive textbooks. More work seems to piling up each week that passes by. Maybe it's a bad idea to have 2 internships and a job at the same time. But at least I'm getting paid...which is good since now I have to pay for my tuition by myself now. Also my allergies have been acting up lately...darn runny nose makes me look like Rudolph. I hope everyone else is or will be doing a lot better than I am. Okai...I'm sleeping now...since it's so rare for me get at least 6 hrs of sleep. good nite to all.

the first week [06 Sep 2004|01:28am]
...the first week is not going so well. Already I am loaded with so much work. Aiyah...it was not a good idea to do an internship and have a job at the same time. What is worse is that my cd-burner isn't working...meaning that I cannot burn all the media files I have unless I want to have very little hard drive space. I did have a big nice juicy steak today...so that lightened up my day. I also reaquainted myself with friends in Berkeley...it was nice to see them again. We can suffer for a whole new year together again. I miss everyone at home in Rowland too!!! So now for antoher week.

back again... [29 Aug 2004|01:05am]
So I'm back at Berkeley now. I'm pretty much moved back in. Although I feel tat it is a lil different here, I also feel a lil familiarity. So classes are goin to start on Monday, a dreadful day for many of us. Well...just many many more years of school to go...it's so great how we spend more than a third of our lives in school. Anywayz...after the flight home, I had a nice sushi dinner with my roomies. Then I visited old floormates...how I miss the dorms in a way. Oh yah...Japan-tv is up and running again...so it's an opportune to get those j-dramas. Now I guess it's time for bed. I won't make the same mistakes as I did last year. TahTah.

can't sleep [25 Aug 2004|02:43am]
*sigh* I can't seem to fall sleep at all. Although I guess it is kinda early...2:44 am. So I mite as well update my journal since I seldomly do so anywayz. Well...it's been really fun being back...although it was only 2 weeks...but I really enjoyed it. So sad that the next I can see everyone again will be Thanksgiving and Winter break, such a long time from now. I'm really going to miss everyone. It would be nice if I had a personal jet tho...so I can fly home every weekend. Well, being stuck in Westminster without a car really sucks...but oh wells. I guess I should be happy that I can be here at all.

So anywayz...if there are people that are looking for english subbed Japanese dramas, here are the sites that I go to...http://drama.afraid.org/japan-tv/main.shtml I think this is a really really good site because the subs are really good and episodes are high quality. Plus, it's FREE!!! You can find Beautiful Life, Long Vacation, Good Luck!, Summer Snow, GTO, and other good dramas there. However...there are two things that people should know. For one, it is a bittorrent site...so it means you must have bittorrent to dl the episodes. However, they also have an irc address...so if you know how to use mirc...it will make things better. But I'm not sure what the address is, it's on their website. And most importantly, once in awhile they update their website, so their site is sometimes down. But somehow, for the past 2 weeks the site has been down, so the tracker is down for the time being. I'll be sure to post when the site is back. But I really recommend this site to anyone that enjoys watching J-dramas. Also, I recommend checking out their links so that you can find other dramas.

Another site that I go to is http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/ Once you get to the site, click on torrents and then search for your drama. This site has various dramas ranging from twdramas, hkdramas, kdramas, and jdramas. They also have the OST for a lot of good dramas too. Most of the dramas are Eng subbed. Once again, this is another bittorrent site, so you'll need bittorrent to dl these dramas. However, be warned...the subbing and the quality of these dramas are questionable. Some are really really good while others are pretty bad.

On another note, these dramas often require the latest codecs...everyone please be sure to update them like Xvid. All of the dramas from Japan-tv do work...so if you encounter problems, it means that you need to update your codecs. Also, some of the dramas from d-addicts require vobsub to play the episodes. I have all of these programs so I'll send them upon request. For the time being, I have Beautiful Life, Long Vacation, GTO, Good Luck!, Summer Snow, and Love Generation. Ummm...once I figure out how to set up my ftp...I mite be able to share these dramas upon request since my laptop can only hold so much. Yah, so either dl from the sites or get them from me later on. If the ftp doesn't work...I mite juss bring the cds back with me when I come home again.

Now for my math quote of the day:
"Sometimes there might be no exact solution to a problem, but it doesn't mean you can't find one close to it."

Sounds a little corny...but hey...what can a guy do that thinks about math. I was thinking about changing the ending to "find the best answer," but whatever makes sense to ppl. I hope ppl can figure what it means. Anywayz...this is a very long update. I mite as well go to bed. nite nite.

[24 Jul 2004|01:16am]
YAY!!!...So I guess I am coming home after summer school is over. So I can see everyone again b4 Thanksgiving. I can also give Nathan his Naruto and Macross Zero. But sadly Nathan won't get to the awesome episodes with Naruto since they'll probably show it while I'm away. Sucks how it's going to only be for like 2 weeks tho. But maybe I should tell my family about it, since it would be proper if they knew that I was coming home. Also...I finished my last midterm today...now just a final and essay left. How am I suppose to handle a curve where half a class is getting a perfect as of now?

AHHH...SOOOO COLD!!!...Why is that I have to wear a sweater when I go outside? What kind of summer is this? Anywayz...I finally got a job as a lighting and sound technician...now all I have to do is just keep it. And I think I might be able to go home for like two weeks. But hopefully, my new job will let me go home. Thanks to three special ppl, I have a chance to go home. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!! So then I can see everyone again, hopefully. But I'll hope for the best.

YAY!!! Half of summer school is over. Sigh...but I still have four more weeks of school and what is worse is that I can't come home til Thanksgiving. I'm also done with Wind Waker, but now i get to play Metroid Prime...which I have to say is a pretty good game. I sooooo want to come home...but I just don't have the money. One year of college really wiped account pretty dry. Oh yah...from now on I say good luck...I'm going to put two dumbs up and put a lot of feeling into it. I just think it's totally awesome when the Japanese actors do it on Good Luck!! Okai...enough said...time for me to make some eggrolls.

wat a distraction [27 Jun 2004|12:08am]
Yea...so I've gone through my first week of summer school. Statistics is not so bad...but asian am r2a a hella is. The GSI really makes me feel stupid, but watevers...ino I'm bad at writing anyways. Yah...with all this i should focus on my two classes, i've been playing wind waker. darn to the games...but it's so addicting. with all the time i could be studying instead of playing videogames...i wouldn't always be behind. i went to chinatown todai...i ate the grossest dim sum ever, but i guess i should have known when i didn't see a single asian person eating dim sum in the restaurant, only tourists. anywayz...i should start studying...my first midterm is next week. but maybe after a lil more Link action.

back again [20 Jun 2004|09:29pm]
sigh...I'm back in Berkeley again. I finally get to sleep in my own bed in my apartment with my roomate. YAY...no more couch. But sadly, my time in LA was way too short. I wish it could have been a lil longer. I miss everyone back home already. What sucks is that I won't be able to see anyone until Thanksgiving. Good and bad things happened this time, but that's juss life. So summer school starts for me tomorrow...sigh. Oh well...this just means more time to slack off and meet some new ppl, hopefully nice ppl. sigh...why are happy things so hard to hold onto for long?

OH the PAIN!!! [16 Jun 2004|11:58pm]
I wonder if it's a bad sign when my right ear bled last nite and now it really hurts. I wonder if I will go deaf in my right ear. Hmmmm...scary thought. Well...everyone is saying that I should go see a doc, maybe. Anyways...the horrible pain. OUCH!!!!! And thanks to freaken Nathan and KC, I got that song by Hitomi Shimatani stuck in my head. Nice song, but now it's stuck there. Okai...now I think I'm getting a headache. Sigh...3 more days left to go...so sad that time flies by so fast when you don't want it to, but so slow when you want to.

Finally Update [14 Jun 2004|12:14pm]
Hi...if ppl have ever read my lj, notice that the last update was in december. Yah...if ppl already don't know me...I am a very lazy person. I have also been MIA on aim for awhile too. Well...it's summer time and I really didn't have much to do. Living so far and having no car makes life sucks and and boring. I only get to go to Rowland mostly on weekends...which kinda sucks because it leaves five days of boredom. What does this single, bored, old person do...he is trying to watch the entire series of Sex and the City, currently on season 3. Sad life ain't it. Yah...and to actually get me to come update at least once in awhile...I'll write a lil story. Please ignore the story if you have a life, only read when bored to extreme and utterly death. The story is actually base on a dream I had. So yah...if there are things tat sounds familiar to videogames or anime, tat's where I got it from. And please excuse my narration, I'm juss goin to describe my dream. Please analyze the dream and tell me wat's wrong with me.

Story: Part 1

There are flashes of light and images. One image is of this lovely white dragon (really hard to describe if you're there to see it). But this dragon fades away and disappears into light. Another image flashes and it's this big evil looking demon getting blasted into tiny bits. Then another images flashes and it's a big kewl looking dragon (looks kind of like the Kaiser dragon from Breath of Fire III), but he's shrinking. Lastly, there an image of a baby boy in the arms of a guy. So, this 9 year boy wakes up and realizes that what he saw was a dream (big surprise). But he wonders why he always has the same dream....

OKAI...So I'm home again. Yeah, so as you can see I don't update that much. But probably because I had finals coming up and had no time to update. Yes...so I'm finally home. It sucks how Berkeley people come home later than the other UC people. But whatevers, we get a longer break. So I'm sitting in my room, getting ready to watch 100 cds of anime I downloaded from the T1 connection at Berkeley. AHHHHHH...it's so hard to adjust back to 56K. I went from 4000 kb/s to 4 kb/s. I guess no more downloading anime for awhile. okai...enough said. bye for now.
