I knew it!
~mood: happy~
~song: 2012 by Jay Sean ft. Nicki Minaj~

I knew I would forget to celebrate my 50th post! Gagh! Oh well... I better not forget my 100th post. :)

Today's practice was pretty fun. More so than usual at least. Ah, there I go rambling about swimming again. Well, it's hard not to since swimming pretty much takes up my ENTIRE life now. It kinda sux but it's fun. Hahaha, warning here comes another rambling.

So right now my family is watching a movie. There was this guy that was on the screen watching this other guy fight and so my brother says, "Why is he mad?" and my dad says "He's not mad, he's scared." So it really is true that adult can tell fear when children see it as anger. Score one for Mr. Boyce. :)

I apologize again for all the rambling.

This stinks

Care2 is not working
~mood: upset~
~song: Teenage Dream by Katy Perry~

I finally think of a good petition and now the "create a petition" thing is not working! Gah! It makes me mad. I hope I can remember for later. Sorry for the semi-outburst.

Today's practice at swimming was okay. Not too hard. Anyways, my brother is screaming at me to get off the computer now so gotta go before he blows his head. xD

First day with Double Workout

~mood: semi-sleepy~
~song: Put Your Records On by Corinne Bailey Rae~

I'm tired. Plain and simple. Tomorrow is gonna be killer. Everyone will be so exhausted. Morning practice is way harder than afternoon but because I was coughing uncontrollably, the last few sets tonight were really hard for me. Ugh, all the coughing felt horrible. I felt really slow. :P Sorry for all my complaining. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

It's been a long time
~mood: pretty good~
~song: Billionaire by Travis McCoy ft. Bruno Mars~

So it's been three days now has it? Yup, three days since I wrote my last entry. :( Sorry, I've been so busy. Today we had time trials for swimming. Here were my times approximately:

50 Breast: 39.01
50 Fly: 33.??
50 Back: 35.??
50 Free: 29.1?

Yeah so that was okay, although I wasn't ecstatic over my free time. Oh well, I have lots of time to improve. :) Peace out! Lol.

School's coming too fast
~mood: meh~
~song: eh, none~

Hm, school's coming. I don't feel any older. I don't feel ready to start looking at colleges. Oh well, life's too short to worry over silly things like that. I'm tired. It's only 9:35pm and I have swimming tomorrow. Meh.

To make up for yesterday

Writer's block
~mood: slightly mad~
~song: Even Angels Fall by Jessica Riddle~

So I knd of have writer's block right now and that's actually the real reason why my other post was so short. :D Anyways, Even Angels Fall is a really good song, love the title. And the lyrics, they're awesome.

My Dad's birthday!! :)

Went Hiking
~mood: glad(?)~
~song: Ordinary Girl by Miley Cyrus (ew...)~

Today was my dad's birthday! Yay! So he wanted us to all go hiking. I think our dog loved it the most :) This is going to be a short entry because I have to go soon. Oh! Before I go, the reason I listed a song by Miley Cyrus is only because I like the lyrics somewhat. I do not like her as a person, just clearing that up. No offense Miley if you're reading this (highly doubt it) but it never hurts to be sure!

berriluver the Food Critic

~mood: full~
~song: Halfway Gone by Lifehouse~

Totoro in Downtown Ann Arbor

3.7 out of 5 stars

What I ate:
Appetizers - Gyoza
Salad - (Not sure what it's called... it was served with our meal)
Soup - Miso Soup
Entrees - Salmon Teriyaki Bento with Tempura and 4 pc. California roll

The salad and soup came first and were very good, but relatively small. Next came the gyoza (5 pc.) which were okay but a little bit too crunchy on the outside. Next came the Bento box. It was served with a small (I mean small) bowl of white rice, much less than I was used to getting, but then I saw why because the piece of salmon they gave was also very small. Inside the rest of the box was cold sesame noodles, 4 pc. California roll, shrimp and vegeatable tempura, wasabi, ginger, and a slice of orange. The sesame noodles were very good as was the tempura. Even though the portion of salmon was relatively small, it was still very good. Oh! I forgot to mention the salmon wqas served over some shredded veggies (carrots, daikon, etc) which were a good compliment to the salmon. The California roll was okay, served a bit warmer than I would have liked and not the best I've had. Overall, the food was pretty good, but not quite worth how much it cost.

Pun intended
~mood: very sleepy~
~song: too tired to think of one~

I'm sleepy. I needed to post today. It's almost 11:30pm. Hm, today we celebrated my dad's birthday even though it's a few days early. Yup I think that's pretty much it. Oh, I got to sleep in today cuz I didn't have swimming this morning. So that was nice.

Happy 40th Post!
~mood: okay~
~song: Your Love Is My Drug by Ke$ha~

Yup, it's already my 40th post! Maybe I should have waited to celebrate the 50th post instead but oh well. I could just celebrate both... lol. Actually, truth is I was worried I might forget to celebrate the 50th post. And I just noticed it's even 40. So yeah. No special reason, just that. ^_^

Watch out...

School is coming! O_O
~mood: upbeat~
~song: Animal by Neon Trees~

Yup, so it's that time of the year. School is just around the corner. Only a few weeks left of freedom. ;; But the point here is not to be a downer. I'm writing now because I wanted to warn you that I might not be able to keep up with my posts daily because I'll busy back-to-school shopping, driving to earn my 30 hours, swimming, reconnecting with friends, etc, blah blah blah. So yeah. To sum it all up, I'm gonna be kinda not posting for awhile. I might get back when school starts (so I can blog about all my crazy days).

To make up for yesterday

I can't really think of anything to write about...
~mood: nonchalant~
~song: Cooler Than Me by Mike Posner~

Wow... okay. So, I guess maybe I'll just put the lyrics of Cooler Than Me below.

If I could write you a song,
and make you fall in love,
I would already have you up under my arm.
I used to pull all my tricks,
I hope that you like this.
but you probably won't,
you think you're cooler than me.

you got designer shades,
just to hide your face and
you wear them around like
you're cooler than me.
and you never say hey,
or remember my name.
its probably cuz,
you think you're cooler than me.

you got your hot crowd,
shoes on your feet,
and you wear them around,
like they ain't shit.
but you don't know,
the way that you look,
when your steps

see I got you,
all figured out,
you need everyone's eyes just to feel seen.
girl, your so vain,
you probably think that this song is about you.
don't you? don't you?

if I could write you a song,
and make you fall in love,
I would already have you up under my arm.
I used to pull all my tricks,
I hope that you like this.
but you probably won't,

you got designer shades,
just to hide your face and
you wear them around like,
you're cooler than me.
and you never say hey,
or remember my name.
it's probably cuz,
you think you're cooler than me.

you got your hot crowd,
switching your walk,
and you don't even look when you pass by.
but you don't know,
the way that you look.
when your steps make

and don't you dare act like you don't know,
know what's up,
cuz your nose is up.
I'm approaching up.
like I can't give you winter in the summer
or summer in the winter
Miami in December
trying to look bored in them Dior's.
she probably is,
Was acting shallow 'til she found out
how deep that my pockets is
Mrs. pre-Madonna, this is your reminder
That I think you're fine, but I'm finer

'Cause it sure seems
('Cause it sure seems)
You got no doubt
(That you got no doubt)
But we all see
(We all see)
You got your head in the clouds

if I could write you a song,
and make you fall in love,
I would already have you up under my arm.
I used to pull all my tricks,
I hope that you like this.
but you probably won't,
you think you're cooler than me.

Hm, this is a long song... >.>

Swimming tomorrow

My Stye
~mood: nonchalant~
~song: Cooler Than Me by Mike Posner~

My stye is starting to go away. Most all of the pain is gone but you can still see it clearly. It's pretty noticable. I'm going to try swimming tomorrow. I don't know how my eye will take the pressure from the goggles but I have to try. I've already missed two practices.

I just realized...
~mood: upset~
~song: Someday by Rob Thomas~

That I forgot to do my TGIF last Friday! Nooooo! It's only been two entries of that series and I already missed one! :(


I decided that I will try very very hard to keep up with that one now, I promise. And I'm also going to start a new series! *murmurs of doubt in the audience* Yeah, yeah I know. You think I won't be able to do it. Well I will, and you wanna know why? Because it will be an infrequent series! Woohoo! :D So this means it will be a series, but I will never miss one because I can make an entry for the series whenever I feel like it! (Or remember...)

So I'm sure you're very excited to hear what this new series is going to be called, yes? Dah dah dah daaaa! The "Crap!" series, lol and this is my first entry of the series ^^ So basically, it's a series of entries that are all about when I have "crap!" moments because I forgot something important. Yup, so I hope this goes well. Thanks for reading!

berriluver's Movie Review

Date Night
~mood: excited~
~song: Untouched by The Veronicas~

4.7 out of 5 stars

Awesome: Cast, Creative story, Jokes
Great: Plot, Ending
Good: Chase Scene
Poor: ---
Horrible: ---

Date Night had an awesome cast. I love Tina Fey and Steve Carrel! They are probably two of the funniest characters in Hollywood. I very much liked the whole story of boring parent life, wanting to get out for ONE date, and then getting it all screwed up and being chased down by killers. The plot was good, sometimes predictable what would happen next. The ending was great, very funny. The chase scene in the middle was good, pretty funny with the cars stuck together. Overall, great movie. Some language and more-adult jokes.

Greetings from SF

Last Day in SF

Yes! Finally I get to go back home. Unfortunately though, our flight was delayed! Agh! That makes me kinda mad. But whatever! :) I'm going home!!!!!

1 more day!
~song: Sk8r Boi by Avril Lavigne~

Only ONE MORE DAY until I come back to Michigan! Yay! I'm so happy. I finally get to be back with all my friends and see them at swim practice and school (school later though thankfully). :)

Today we are going to KOME buffet restaurant. They have a giant sushi bar and since it's a buffet... I can eat all I want! xD And the sushi is good quality too. Oh! I also saw another movie yesterday so expect a review for that later today... if I feel like it.

berriluver's Movie Review

Bounty Hunter
~mood: content~
~song: Fire Burning by Sean Kingston~

4.4 out of 5 stars

Awesome: Cast, Jokes
Great: Creative story, Beginning
Good: Plot, Ending, Fights, Music
Poor: ---
Terrible: ---

Bounty Hunter was hilarious. The idea of the ex-husband chasing after his "felon" ex-wife was great. Awesome cast too; I love Jennifer Aniston. There was also lots of awesome jokes, sure to give laughs to the whole family. I liked the beginning of the movie because it was a foreshadowing to the rest of the movie. The plot was good, somewhat predictable and the music was okay. Definetly music to entertain all members of the family. The fights were also pretty good, but the chase scene at the beginning was pretty standard.

AH! My eye!
~mood: not happy~
~song: One Day by O.A.R.~

So I got back from Santa Cruz last night and it was really fun! I won some prizes at the arcade and I got a stuffy from one of those midway-type games. Now I'm back and for some reason my right eye hurts. It's weird cuz it's just the one eye, not both. So yeah, idk. Ugh, it's annoying and it looks funny too. It's like, you know what double-lidded looks like? Yeah, well it's like that only higher up than the double-lid on my other eye. :(

Yes you heard right, I will NOT be online tomorrow! :o I know, shocking right? Well not once you hear that the reason I will be gone tomorrow is... I will be going to an amusement park/beach. Yeah, it's like this theme park thing just off of a beach in Santa Cruz. Sounds fun, besides the fact that I will be going with my annoying family. Ahhh! I just wanna go back to Michigan to see my friends! ;;

Gone Biking
~mood: contemplative~
~song: Need You Now by Lady Antebellum~

Today we went biking which is why I haven't been able to blog until now. It makes me rather sad but also happy that I finally got to exercise since swimming ended.

I finished Furauba last night, as in, the WHOLE series! I'm relieved and also sad. Also, I didn't get much sleep last night because my mind was wide awake thinking all about Furuba characters. Ugh, this series is bad for my health, lol. ^^ Well, it also taught me a lot about life and the truth of the world. I learned... well actually, maybe you should just read it for yourself and learn on your own.

~mood: drowsy~
~song: Lazy Day Afternoon by Plain White T's~

Well, since I was too tired to do this yesterday, here's my review of BJ's!

BJ's Restaurant

4.5 out of 5 stars

What I ate:
Appetizers - Mini Bruschetta
Salad - Cobb Salad
Entrees - Spaghetti with meat sauce, Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo (I have two entrees because my family shared)
Sides - Fries thin

The mini bruschetta was good with pesto sauce to add on top. Lots of tomatoes and flavor. The Cobb salad was also very good. Although, it was a little heavy on the dressing in my opinion. The chicken fettuccine alfredo was fantastic! Good size portion, very creamy sauce and a well-balanced ratio of pasta to chicken (or chicken to pasta I guess). The spaghetti meat sauce was a little, eh, in my opinion. I didn't really like the flavor of it. The fries were okay. I'm not really sure how to judge fries to well but they weren't bad so, yeah. Overall, very good food.

UWAAAH! I was in the middle of reading volume 17 of Furuba at Barnes and Noble when we had to go eat dinner! Granted we were eating at BJ's (yum) but still! I wasn't that hungry so I could have gone without dinner right? :D

Anyway, this is probably one of my latest entries. I was really busy today so yeah. Well, I have to go to sleep soon. UWAAAH! I absolutely NEED to know what happens next! I'm so not going to be able to sleep. But no one spoil it for me thanks. ^^


Dim Sum

Dim sum... yum! xD I'm pretty hungry right now but that's okay because we're going to go eat brunch soon! I can't wait. Hope you all had a good breakfast, lunch, maybe even dinner depending on what time zone you're in? Sayonara! Auf Wiedersehen! Ciao! Adios! Au Revior! Bye!

New cool website!

~song: Nothing on You by B.o.B. feat. Bruno Mars~

So I found another cool website to add to my list called...


Swaptree allows you to trade your old games, books, movies, and music for new ones! You just have to pay shipping! Not only is it a great way to get rid of your old stuff, you also help the planet by "recycling" in a way.

Just take a break.
~mood: relaxed~
~song: Falling In by Lifehouse~

Sometimes you just have to chill. Then again, I do that almost everyday. I want to do something to change the world. But first I want to change myself. Yet, I also want to stay the same. I would like to be just like Tohru (Furuba, lol) but I also like me. I need to stay down-to-earth and realize the truth of the world. I don't think I could be as um, how do you say, clueless? or un-observant? as Tohru. I still admire her though. Well, yeah sorry for a sort of personal story. See ya! ^^

Oh, well I should probably tell you the real name of the manga, Furuba is the fan name. So here it is...

Energy Overload
~mood: devilish~
~song: Juliet by LMNT~

First off I want to apologize for not posting yesterday. I was out most of the day and then I got all caught up reading manga. ^^ Another note on the manga, I got 11, yes 11 volumes (from the library I didn't buy THAT many lol) yesterday. I also went to a sushi buffet! I think I ate twice my weight in sushi. Which leads us to my energy overload. I got so much energy from that sushi that last night, I stayed up until 1am reading my manga because I wasn't sleepy at all and once I forced myself to go to sleep, I woke up four and a half hours later (5:30am in case you're not good at math) to finish reading the books I had left. Yup! I predict I will crash around 2 or 3 this afternoon though. That's my usual crash hour.
