I rarely have such vivid images left in my head after I wake up from a very comfortable but exhausting sleep.
I dreamt of and only of food!!!!
Last night I came home from school very hungry and tired, so I just made mac and cheese and had sausages and a tomato. I was hungry again by 10 PM. I decide to ignore it and hope that it’ll pass.
OF course it’ll pass, you’ll just end up sleeping, and that’s exactly what happened.
But instead I began to dream of food.
I basically don’t have any access to sushi, ramen, chinese food etc.
I don’t even have access to stuff like popeye’s chicken because I don’t have a car!
Very sad I know
But my dream began with a trip to a fried chicken joint with my boyfriend, but somehow we ended up at different ones so I had to go on a food binge journey alone because he had to go to work. What a realistic dream.
I found a ridiculously amazing food mall? And just started to eat.
I started off with some kind of Japanese style BLT. The bread was kind of like a sponge cake wrap? And it was fluffy and delicious. It came with this weird but delicious soup. After that I walked around the market and picked up a bunch of japanese drinks like BOSS coffee which I don’t even like. I was just so excited to see the can.
After that I picked up this pistachio/ chocolate cake that they slice into thin strips, they poured white chocolate on it right before serving? As well as a few other snacks from that vendor.
This dream market is amazing~~~
Then I met a bunch of random and colorfully dressed people and we talked about things but I don’t know what. Who cares, ended the dream with a bowl of steaming hot ramen.
Please feel for me. PLEASE FEEL FOR MY SITUATION.
I am going back to Vancouver is two months? I am hoping to make a trip to Toronto in one month….
p.s. it doesn’t help to see everyone’s food pictures on IG but alas I have something to look at.
the shitty thing is
that i think im allergic to my room
ive been sneezing a lot and my nose ran across the country and back within the last few days. But hopefully it’s seasonal..I bought a lot of garlic supplements because that’s supposed to be helpful.
but i am excited about another spot that i’m shooting this weekend!!!! I love writing commercials and doing concept for TV spots rather than print. While I appreciate both forms I feel like I am able to perform better with TV. Fingers crossed that it means that I can write TV/ movies well as well….
We’re doing a lot of poetry in my creative thinking class. I bought a Charles Bukowski book: The Last night of the Earth Poems because Amelia posted a beautiful Bukowski poem: Nirvana.
THIS IS STUDENT WORK!!!!!
My first commercial shoot for school.
Art Directors: David Sprad lin, Sarah R oss
Copywriters: Patr ick, Girts, Emma D ou
p.s. I also bought emmadou.com how surreal
It’s so hot here…I can’t believe it’s already September and still raging on 30 degree weather!!!
I’m still not used to Fahrenheit so I still say use celsius then subsequently explain that I’m Canadian. But really the only country that still use Fahrenheit is the US!
There are end of season sales everywhere and I’ve been trying to be really good and not buy anything. I ended up buying a really cheap rug from Urban Outfitters and missed out on a pair of sandals. All my shoes here are so practical and boring. I’m not excited to wear anything because I have so little to wear! Probably because of that I’m really feeling the need to buy clothes….
Living here has progressively gotten more comfortable. But at the same time I still feel hazy about everything. I keep thinking that it’s going to end really soon but it’s just the beginning.
I wish I felt more excited about everything but right now it’s more like what am I doing how do I do this assignment? How do you even do well when there’s no guidelines?
I guess that’s the whole point of going to a creative school, the LACK of guidelines. But man, I don’t know how to do any of the homework!!!
Well Happy Labour Day. I’m still spelling it with a U because I’m from Canada after all…..
But one thing that’s been keeping me a bit busy is cooking! I made chicken curry and this random attempt at an omelette. It doesn’t taste great but I felt pretty proud of myself. Only 4.5 months to go till I can go home for a little bit…
google reader is saying good bye. got this super cute image from feedly….
aww i’ll be missing you my friend
I am very boring of a person and I enjoy reading my own blog posts so I was going through the recent ones and I realized that I never fully wrote a reflection about MOTEKI the drama. I wrote about how much I loved the movie version and I felt like it would be pointless to watch the drama version. Holy crap I’ve written these exact same words a while ago haven’t I? But I didn’t fully talk about the drama in all its glory.
first of all, I think, whether you like Japanese entertainment or not it is a MUST watch for all boys and girls that go through that extremely awkward and unsure phase of god who will love me, will I die alone, what is life made out of? why is everyone else happy but me? what’s so bad about me oh wait it’s everything. Everything is bad about me and I have no redeeming features. I am sure all of us have had these phases, I know I have. because I was sure that no one could love me. There are so many bad things about me that I cannot begin to start naming them. But then sometimes on a rare day of feel-good-inc, I catch my own reflection as I get off the bus and face a FOR LEASE sign and a giant piece of glass. Another store went out of business, but hey these jeans look really good on me. Who said my gender isn’t evident? I’m clearly one of those cool girls that could pull it off without curves, you know what I’m saying, YOU KNOW WHAT I AM SAYING?
There is so much self doubt about trying to be with someone, or try to get along with someone. Obviously we end up changing ourselves for them no matter how much we convince that it is the nose-picking, beer chugging self that they like and love. It is, but that’s many months down the road.
When I was in elementary school I read a lot of teen magazines at the library because I didn’t have a house key and waited till I could get back in the house which was always some time after five. I’ve read a lot of those advice columns and for some reason this one stuck out at me even after all this time. A girl was bulimic and she was writing in to get help because her boyfriend encouraged her to throw up after they eat. I thought it was really weird that she stayed with him despite that. So what would happen if she didn’t do as he said? What if he got help for her disease? Did he enjoy having a troubled girlfriend and encouraged her troubles or did he just really like skinny girls and if she wasn’t skinny he wouldn’t want to be with her?
I think one of the reasons that I stayed so true to myself is that I have a nice family so I never felt too pressured to “fall in love” though dammit I wanted a boyfriend so badly in highschool. Mostly because I read shit ton of shoujo manga and longed for the cute high school romance. But alas, my life didn’t turn out that way.
The drama revolves around this guy who suddenly becomes popular with the ladies, a phase that they call MOTEKI in japan. I remember my Japanese teacher saying it really is like a phase, like suddenly you become an attractive mate and a lot of people wanna get with you. Our protagonist faces this dilemma suddenly. He has four beautiful girls revolve themselves around him, well one of them is like a friend type and is played by Rinko Kikuchi. I used to not like her that much but I really like her now especially after this I guess I’ll have to rewatch Norwegian Wood but I still stand corrected about the casting.
Our protagonist seems quite pure as he cannot do it with a girl that he doesnt love but throughout the entire self-defacing series he tries to get with this girl than that girl unconvinced of which girl he actually likes or wants to be with. I as a viewer is constantly confused for his need for sex or love? Is he confusing the two or does he just wanna get laid but is too in his own head and can’t decide whether he wants true love or sex.
SPOILER — of course lots of things happen and for some reason, all of the girls are attracted to him, but because of his greed for love (or sex?) he ends up being with no one. Because he could never wholeheartedly love someone, like someone, or even look past their faults as a reflection of his own insecurity. He ends up with NO ONE. But he realized the importance of focusing on himself. He realizes that only through focusing on his true self could he find true love.
So, basically it’s telling to you to shine the brightest as yourself and then other people will like you and love you.
