Twinkle Star

Published January 24, 2014 by sophiachandler

When I was younger I abused my worn-out copy or Kira-Kira by Cynthia Kadohata.

I read it so many times, especially when I was about ten and was literally obsessed with everything remotely Japanese. I loved Katie and Lyn and their relationship and Silly and Sammy and I hated Amber with a passion so ardent that the name still gives me bad vibes and I refuse to like it.

I haven’t touched that book in a long while now, but it was one of the reasons why I have liked Japan and its culture ever since.

and then today I listened to this Innocently Angelic song by Kana Hanagawa:

It’s. Shiori. It’s Shiori from TWGOK ohmygosh this lady just sang a song from my favorite manga and anime and it was beautiful, period. How could I not resist falling in love with it? How could I not? Plus Shiori is one of my favorite targets in the series (second only to Ayumi/Tenri).

you have to listen to it.

PLEASE.

That matter aside, I just want to say something about a certain friend (ahem ahem Kia *cough* cough*) that I’ve been talking to a lot reaaaaaally recently. Talking to as in spamming. Gommenasai Kia-chan~ but really thanks so much for putting up with my stuff and pretending to be interested even though you weren’t really though or maybe you were I couldn’t tell. And supporting me throughout whatever I did. And forcing me to stay true to my task and pissing off Alex (I gave up on that fanfic in the end, guys. .-.). And telling me I was brave for defending someone (really, I wasn’t, maybe it was a little brave, but it was estupido).

So thanks.

And I love you. Not in the romantic way.

P.S. that was the most awkward confession ik

Juniper

Published January 15, 2014 by sophiachandler

I’m finally able to squeeze in a short update in between all my business and shaz…

I’m not gonna lie. School’s fun to an extent.

Mainly because of Juniper who’s sitting a seat away from me. SHE’S AWESOME because she actually reads shojo manga instead of Naruto -.- (I don’t have anything against Naruto, it’s just that all the anime/manga people in our class, which is 75% are Naruto lovers and Naruto lovers only except for Juniper, her three friends and me) AND TWGOK AND Nisekoi AND Watashi Nii xx Shinasai AND wanted to try Ao Haru Ride as well. AND she listens to Vocaloid. AND because she also ships Alex with her childhood friend “because it was just like a typical shojo plot”.

Can you tell how much I adore her?

About Alex and her childhood friend: I’m calling him Declan because who cares he seems like one. Alex and Declan are really good together, that’s probably why their non-existent relationship is shipped by so many awesome people~ including Juniper and me of course! And it doesn’t exactly hurt that Alex’s best friend likes Declan too~ it thickens the plot.

so this post was a short one but have no fear I’ll be BACK on the weekends with an update on my Japanese class~

Walls (are the only exciting thing in this post)

Published January 2, 2014 by sophiachandler

Today marked the first ever day of my going to a new high school! It was… interesting. There were (loud) school cheers and classmates that I’m not sure if I’ll get used to and seniors so full of energy and nearly bouncing off the walls and old friends and scary teachers behind a nice disguise and a camp briefing.

Basically, eh.

But it was still nice seeing all of my friends and the food in the cafeteria đŸ™‚ and knowing which classes we would be joining đŸ˜¦ and which classes we wouldn’t be.

Okay sorry this isn’t much of a post! But nothing new really happened these past few days… so yeah. This is the only exciting piece of news I could share with you today.

But I’ll drop in a song:

“Oh damn these walls
In the moment we’re ten feet tall
And how you told me after it all
We’d remember tonight
For the rest of our lives

If these wings could fly”

~Birdy, Wings

Walls are kind of a recurring theme in my life .-.

Things I’ve learnt from this shuffle quiz: tomorrow I shall have a love encounter, apparently.  I am someone who abuses children, or will, when I grow up. I have to show my dark side to achieve my highest potential in life, WTH. I have to become Miley Cyrus and then get on a wrecking ball, NAKED and then swing around. Only then will my life become successful. And my best quality is my ability to not stop and party like Miley Cyrus and then ultimately embarass myself. People see me as a princess/queen in their eyes. That’s nice!I am as crazy as somebosy who tells their friends that their girlfriend died because of freak accidents. Anyone who really loves me will always be a friend to me (how true this is, jussayin’ guys). And I shall be in the US of A in a year’s time so bb guys!

I am absolutely in love with these random music shuffle quizzes I can’t even right now.

Happy Birthday Kagamine Twins!

tumblr_static_konachan.com_-_81237_headphones_kagamine_len_kagamine_rin_vocaloid

 

Happeh happeh birthday to the Kagamine twins!

Rin and her brother Len turn six today! They are my favorite Vocaloids and to celebrate their birthday, I listened to Romeo and Cinderella on replay for two hours straight, which drove me to the verge of tears, because there’s something about the song that touches my heart deeply. Ironically, it’s not torture, because I actually enjoy the song! ^w^

Before I go, a big apology for my previous post which was absolute crap. My face when I reread it:

gross-face

I believe that’s Kristen Wiig from SNL? I don’t remember.

This was an extremely short post… but I’m kinda packed right now, so I don’t have much time to write.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!

Did any of you guys get what you wanted for Christmas? Any new packets of air-dry clay (oh CCJ!), balls of yarn (hehe Kia) or Minecraft-related stuff (a certain Richard I know!)? Or a new computer perhaps? That dress you’ve been eyeing recently? A Starbucks gift card from a loved one?

I’m so very pleased with the bountiful abundance of gifts I recieved! There were gifts like the new Skullcandy headphones from my parents (thank you so much I love you to the sky and back okay!), gifts like the small but sweet keychain with my name spelt on it in alphabet beads that my best friend Emma gifted me, gifts like the somewhat touching small note that made me smile placed among the small treasure trove of items Clarissa bestowed upon me at the party last Saturday.

As corny as it sounds, Christmas isn’t all about the gifts that you receive, it’s about giving them. A confession: this year was the first year that I was actually buying something using the money that I had painstakingly tried not to use for buying my weekly frappes at Starbucks. And I enjoyed it, because, well, there’s something inside you that makes you feel good about using your own money and effort to get a loved one something to warm their heart.

I can’t believe I just wrote something that corny!

Speaking of which, did you know that Christmas is not the day on which Jesus Christ was born?

I know, I know, shocking. I read The Da Vinci Code a year back and discovered this fact. Apparently it’s something about Roman propaganda. I can’t remember the details, but it has something to do with Constanistople, the then Roman emperor at that time, converting to Christianity and mixing some of the pagan religion into Christianity. December 25th is actually the Roman Saturnalia in which everyone eats, drinks and is merry. Also, did you know that the halos of the angels are actually supposed to be the Romans’ sun disks?

I’m going to end my post here, but I shall leave you with some lyrics from my all-time favorite Christmas carol:

“I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree”

It’s from the Queen of Christmas – Mariah Carey!

A very merry Christmas everyone! Here’s hoping all your wishes come true!

Magic

Published December 23, 2013 by sophiachandler

To say that Saturday was anything but magic would not have been right.

Because it was.

Magic.

Okay I’m just going to stop with the dramatic intro. I’m still on my #YOLO high after all my partying on Saturday. Remember I told you guys I would be partying non-stop for three days? I’m back! And ready to update you guys on what happened!

On Friday it was a gathering at Jason’s house. I might or might not have mentioned that. I’m just going to rush through this part because the real deal is the next day, but anyways, it was a bit awkward with all our friends around. Especially since they knew about it. I swear I tried to enjoy myself and have fun with Clarissa (remember the Cohens I went on vacation with? That was my best friend mentioned) and her lil’ sister, Elle. Who is too cute for words. I got myself wet splashing around in the wading pool after trying to get my slipper which I dropped in the pool. Then we played wink murder, which I shall not go into detail about because my performance was too embarassing to discuss.

AND THEN SATURDAY CAME.

“We’re goin’ at it tonight, tonight
There’s a party on the rooftop
Top of the world tonight, tonight
And we’re dancin’ on the edge of the Hollywood sign”
~Tonight, Tonight by Hot Chelle Rae

I think it was all a blur. But this is the party where I’ve finally opened out and stepped out of my comfortable, cynical, world-mocking shell for a long moment to take a deep breath and see the beauty of being human, of being crazy and normal and letting everything go for one night. We played Truth or Dare, and I let all my secrets evaporate into the misty, cool night air, not once stopping to turn back and bow my head. I hugged people. I hugged people I don’t talk to normally, people I’m wary of, people my once paranoid self termed as “hates me” and people I love and cherish very deeply (I’m talking about you Kia, CCJ, Clarissa and Sam!), so much that I point to them and go, “She’s my girlfriend.” (Remember that for your whole life, Kia!)

I think this is the first time I’ve truly ever felt like I belong.

Sunday was really nothing, but I managed to eat quite a bit for the buffet! I had a nice long nap afterwards ^^

Earlier today I had my high school orientation. It was nice seeing all my friends again, and hugging them to death, and learning that I would be taking up Japanese on the side together with Kia and a couple other friends. I got my books and stationery – the usual stuff. Nothing very new or exciting.

When I came home, I brainstormed a bit and… I am pleased to announce that I am in the midst of writing a new story! Once I proofread my first chaoter and stuff, it will be up on my Wattpad page. I’ll inform you guys too!

And I realise I haven’t been using my Twitter a lot lately… I’ll be starting to now!
