something to do this summer: volunteer more

my younger sister had her graduation ceremony from high school this morning. a lot of inspiring speeches from great people. plus, a lot of inspiring stories about students who were recognized during the show for doing so much around their school and community. it was awesome.

over this summer break, i’d like to get into the habit of volunteering more.
it’d be nice to be more active in my community.
service above self, right?

what made today awesome

1. got an extension on my psychogeography project. i was like, freaking out about the deadline yesterday, so i feel so much more relaxed now. 🙂

2. had a fun little adventure trying to get something printed for above mentioned project. discovered that they offer colour printing on large sized paper right at my school! :O seriously, spent four years here without ever knowing that. (too bad today the printer was out of the size i needed, and the person who was there did not know how to refill it. >.<” but it’s okay. now i know that such a place exists. 😀 right there in my very own school. 😀 will make future printing jobs that much easier, haha.)

3. OH. and it was funny because once i discovered the place mentioned above, first, i thought i didn’t have any coins on me, and you need to use coins here. but then i rummaged through my bag. and found coins! 😀 AWESOME. and thenn, found out that the computers they had there are really old (like windows XP old) and doesn’t have any SD card slots. >3> and there was no wireless internet for me to transfer the file from my laptop to the old desktops either. alas, i thought, if only i had brought my USB. but then i thought to just rummage through my bag again, and found out that i had, not one, but TWO of my old USB sticks in there! great stuff! turns out that not clearing out my bags ever, does sometimes pay off! ;D

4. so then, since it was out of paper, i went to UPS, like i had originally planned. found out their prices are way higher than my school, and they didn’t even have the paper in cardstock. which would have made up for the price, ‘cause i originally did want it in cardstock (which they do not have at my school). but then, i found this small little printing store in the corner, where they did have cardstock! 😀 (and it was cheaper than UPS too! :3 good stuff. [still more expensive than my school print shop, but, at least they had card stock. 😀 that made up for it.] (plus, getting to see #5 made up for it as well. :P)

5. saw a huge Tidus poster at the printing store (so random! no idea why they have it there. xD but beautiful none the less >3 tidus = my number one favourite male character of all time. so. that was a lovely surprise, seeing him just standing there and smiling and sparkling in all his sexy, wonderful, glory. :3)

6. caught a ride on a bus driven by my bus driver friend, who drops me off right at my street (instead of one street back which is where the bus stop actually is). it’s always fun running into this guy. 😀 he’s so friendly, and kind, and nice to have a quick chat with during my ride home. 🙂

7. turning the tables around, even when it seems as though the odds just aren’t in your favour! 😀 (in a “command board” mini game LOL i love that thing. [from kingdom hearts: birth by sleep. one of my favourite games ever.])

8. anticipation for Square Enix’s announcements/trailers tomorrow at the E3!! 😀 Can not wait! (*fingers crossed for some news on Versus XIII) :3

psychogeography project

another fun thing for the summer.
going on a derive.

what is a derive?
The derive is described as a practice of “getting lost” in a place on purpose, abandoning the goal of a destination, and simply drifting through an area and discovering new ways to experience it. You know how usually when people go outside, we have some sort of a destination in mind? And we don’t usually take the time to actually take in our surroundings, or explore different routes, other than what is familiar to us? Yeah. This works to counter that. =)

and psychogeography?
Psychogeography refers to the emotional and behavioural effects a geographical environment has on a person.

so basically, for my final project in my art and activism class, i had to go outside. and get lost.
seriously. 😀
what fun.

and, you know, discover things about the area that me, or most people, usually wouldn’t. interact with the environment in unconventional ways, like standing on park benches, and talking to lots and lots of strangers. and also taking a LOT of pictures! 😀

i went on the walk with my sister and a friend. 🙂 everything is more fun when you have someone there to share it with. ;D

here’s something new you could try: go outside, and get lost! 😀
here’s a good read to check out if you’re interested in trying out something like this:
of course you don’t have to follow what the article says. just do whatever feels right to you. =) it’s all personal and stuff, so. it makes sense if you get to decide how you want to do it.

i want to have a “command board” board game

i’ve been playing a lot of kingdom hearts: birth by sleep lately (working to get 100% report completion to unlock the secret ending), and i was thinking how i actually really like the “command board” thing they have. =D it seems like something that would be really fun as a real-life version that you could play, like a board game.

i want to make up a board game based on it.
or something.
that’d be fun.
for sister game night. (game night with my three sisters) 😀

Suppose you…

Suppose you watch a clear sky and wait for a cloud to form – you might learn something about nature. Suppose you wait longer, for the sky to clear – you might learn something else about yourself.

june.03.2013. things that made this day awesome

1. i’ve figured some things out about myself

2. the flowers outside my house
i was walking along to school pondering about things, and the beautiful smell of these purple flowers (i don’t know many flower names! sorry! >.<) just broke my train of thought. the scent is so strong, you can smell it from like a few feet away, and it smells beautiful! and looks just as pretty! they were so pretty that i had to just stop and smell the flowers! like, literally! ;D awesome stuff.

3. i had a chat with my professor about psychogeography and lifelike art (+got a 100 on an assignment ^^”)

4. i helped my little sister choreograph moves for her talent show audition tomorrow
