It’s been a longggg time since I last posted; I know. But unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your opinion of my blog) I’m not going to be updating this one so frequently anymore. After a lot of chaos and the loss of someone close to me in these past 6 months, I realized that it’s probably healthier for me (or my stress levels, rather) to blog about things that won’t require daily updates all the time. That, plus what my friends and coaches said recently about me having the potential to be a coach or teacher in the future (instead of my current goal of a doctor), I’ve decided to move my focus onto another blog of mine. It certainly will not be updated as often, but it will render a larger concentration on athletics, nutrition, and just how to stay happier and healthier over a long span of time. Here’s the link, in case anyone wants to take a look. http://healthyandhappyforlife.wordpress.com
There’s nothing on there at the moment, but over time, I’ll be posting recipes, stretching tips, injury prevention tips, and other health-related stuffs, so please stay tuned if you’re interested! Or leave a comment ^^
Thank you to everyone who ever liked and commented or messaged me regarding posts. I love you all dearly and hope to talk to you all again!
Hope everyone is enjoying the last days of their break / having a good start to the new year! It’s 2013!! o.o Sorry, just kinda hard to believe–time flew by. Really.
2012 was a year that caught me by surprise, both in the end of the ’11-’12 year and the beginning of the ’12-’13 (this) school year. I learned to be part of, and lead, a team. I tasted the bitterness of loving and not being loved back. I learned that limits are where you decide to set them; if you decide that you have no limits, then there will be none.
I might talk about the rest of those in the following posts, but before I forget, I just want to write down something–how the end of 2012 hit me with a lot of mourning, tears, and being forced to grow a little more as a person. Continue reading →
I’m sorry for not posting in such a long time. Believe me, I realize how atrocious it looks on my archives when it says August 2012, September 2012, October 2012, and– oops, nothing.
Sigh. Okay, so my resolutions for this year:
2. No procrastinating.
3. Train harder, focus better.
4. Try something new–not necessarily daring/crazy, just new. Let’s keep at that
5. Blog more consistently. …Let me edit that a bit. A LOT more consistently… You guys can help me with this teehee ^^;
6. Learn to bake/cook more stuff
7. Be more patient. Learn to actually listen, not just hear.
And, to start off the new year, here’s a video that I made myself. All the disclaimer content and used media are in the description, so look there if you’re interested. I do this once or twice a year, since I don’t get requests too often (for anime I actually watch once in a while), but since Christmas break is about to end, why not finish with a bang?
The mood of the video is a little dark, so if you’re still in the bright, merry holiday mood, I recommend not watching it, but otherwise–ENJOY (And please feel free to subscribe or leave a comment there/here! Again, happy new year’s to everyone! Hope you have a warm and enjoyable holiday with your loved ones!)
Ok, that’s a little better. Better 2 days than, like, eight. -_-
But today’s short as well. I just, for some reason, began to appreciate male country singers this past week, and of course, Blake Shelton appeared as one of the suggestions on YouTube. Hence, current focus on Blake Shelton and his music.
Today’s song is interesting in that the lyrics can be interpreted as sung by either a female or a male. Maybe I’m overanalyzing, but this could be an equalizing type of sign, where it doesn’t matter who’s reaching out to the other person (female or male to a male or female or vice versa, etc), it’s important that if you return their feelings to not hesitate and just grab the hand offered to you. Whether for the better or for worse, you’ll at least never regret never trying and being won “Over” by Blake Shelton.
This is to all the special people in the life that I had to let go of or lost touch with. I miss all of you, SOOOOO much. We seriously need to get an old-school reunion (for elementary school) and a get-together (for the over 200 swimmers who know each other from N to S California…)
And to the one that doesn’t know how I feel, you shouldn’t know yet, because that’s “The Way I Loved You” (by Taylor Swift).
Are the gods ganging up on me and trying to stop me from posting on this thing?! Cuz it’s working unfairly well.
I got sick this past weekend, and then was making up stuff, so it was an absolute tsunami of work and stress and BLECH!
Therefore, appropriately, today’s song is “So Sick” by Ne-Yo. Gosh, I love this song. Oh, but don’t forget to scroll down to the second link too! It’s a cover by Sam Tsui and Max Schneider (under the production skills of Kurt Schneider). I like that one a lot, too, so make sure to show them some love
Original: “So Sick” by Ne-Yo
Cover version: (Sam Tsui + Max Schneider, with Kurt on the keyboard)
I cannot believe what people are able to do with video editing programs nowadays. In a good way of course. I applaud all people for pursuing their interests by shooting for a goal using the best tools possible.
And when a certain portion of those talented people use it for Disney crossovers, I just about cry with joy xD
Here’s a crossover between Jim and Belle. It’s like a FanFiction but in video style! (which is the point I think…) Enjoy! (Also, the song is “Everything You Want” by Vertical Horizon.)
