25 Things About Me (wanted to kill some time) [Nov. 8th, 2009|10:23 pm]
Leah~
1. I love first kisses!
2. I will play the new Starcraft game but I'm seriously not excited about it... I was but not much has been done with the zerg, so whatever at this point.
3. I've given up on dealing with inconsiderate people. Dealing with them is pretty much dealing with games in relationships, just not worth my time.
4. I inspired the name "Smack a Bitch"... that was just totally uncalled for.
5. Rachel is the most important person to me. We can tell each other absolutely ANYTHING and not worry about any sort of judgment.
6. I haven't played it in a while, but I absolutely LOVEd Insanaquarium.
7. I hate that since apparently my uncles and father's friends read my livejournal, I've gone to the point of censorship to where I don't even bother anymore. :(
8. Every guy's parents that I've met TOO SOON, the relationship died soon after.
9. I almost ALWAYS love songs that have to do with "yeah, I'm awesome"
10. I saw the movie "Where the Wild Things Are" today with Daniel-san.
11. I used to want to name my baby girl "Nine." Don't think that'll stick...
12. As the years have gone by, I've come to realize that my music taste is evolving towards Bevyn's taste(a taste I used to insult constantly), lol
13. I really really like Jeremy! *blush*
14. I've tried my best to keep in touch with my girlfriends but ugh! GIRLS ARE SO FLAKY!!!!
15. I tend to like white(looking) guys.
16. I think people who overly tan are ridiculous... the leather look ISN'T sexy.
17. Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey have a singing range that is to die for!
18. I'm extremely childish at times. I'm working on it.
19. I participated in a book about sexual abuse.
20. I love my mom for her honesty(because those once in a lifetime opportunities she has given me a compliment, it means so much more than from anyone else) but sometimes I wish she'd keep things to herself...
21. I feel like I can't do anything with my life to advance anywhere until I pay off my loans, which I got less than 3k left!
22. I respect Southpark because they don't leave ANYONE out... they poke fun at EVERYONE, which is how it should be.
23. I HATE being hung up on.
24. I really want to own a pair of thigh high boots!
25. I am American.

Boys will be boys [Feb. 28th, 2009|02:40 pm]

After my breakup with Taylor, I kinda went off on the deep end. We had broken up before, but, as much as I wanted to be wild and crazy at those times, I restricted myself. By this point though, I let everything go and I've been acting like a whole new person, very outgoing, very active, very adventurous. Of course they all sound like good attributes when they're taken moderately, not to the extreme like I've been doing. I never really was the good girl, but compared to what I am now, I was pretty tame. After last night though... I've finally decided that I'm gonna retire that wild side. I'm acting out to a irresponsible level, I'm better than that. It was only a month, but more than plenty. I didn't do anything that I regret or anything, or even anything too crazy last night... Dunno what clicked this morning but I just decided to return to my serious self. So back to being the good girl that I know I really am and had been :)

So now lets do that job hunting!

A little list, just for my own reference, of what I wish to accomplish to get back on track:
-get a full-time job towards teaching
-get a volunteer work gig, preferably wkly (hopefully the big sister program!)
-study Spanish on a regular basis to be up to par again
-not a big priority, but possibly pick up the violin again
-get a part-time night job

In other news, apparently I got really awesome credit!

25 Things

1. I sometimes force myself to have crushes to make life more interesting.
2. Where some fear baldness, I fear I won't have teeth in my future... esp since how well I took care of my teeth, or didn't actually... T.T
3. I'm a cat person.
4. I'm pretty useless when I'm cold.
5. One of my favorite moments was when Taylor came to Taiwan. When he was there, I was the translator, communicating between Chinese and English. Made me feel extremely competent.
6. I've been working on my house to make it more organized. I actually love organizing, I find it a lot of fun so I'm enjoying this project! :)
7. Due to my project Clean Up Allen Household, I've noticed my parents have been opening up and voluntarily bonding with me :)
8. I used to keep up with everyone but I finally gave up on it and now focus that energy towards my close peeps. Mainly cuz it's annoying to deal with one sided relationships
9. One day, I will have the 90's party that I've been wanting to have. Until then, I've been categorizing my music by year so that when the time comes for that party, I'll have my music prepped and ready.
10. I'm like a guy initially, you gotta keep my attention otherwise I'll move on.
11. I realize now that man, teaching English to the older students was hard because there are seriously so many exceptions to the rules and it's all about memorization and it really is a confusing language to figure out.
12. I have white tulips growing on my window sill!
13. I have a lot of pairs of heels
14. I feel most beautiful when I'm happy. And I've noticed looking back at pictures of while I was in Taiwan, I wasn't too pretty... and the only times I was pretty was when Taylor came to visit. I thought it was because I was a lot more pale but I'm still pale now and I think I look gorgeous in all my pictures here.
15. I'm currently reducing all of my stuff by 30%.
16. I'm obsessed with chocolate but it has to be good chocolate, none of that Valentine's crap
17. I can be a big bitch, tho it's usually with good intention behind it, unless I'm downtown.
18. I've only been in one car accident, and that was almost a decade ago
19. I've noticed that I tend to think most guys that my girls are dating aren't worth dating, not cuz I'm over protected... but usually I tend to think that my girls are settling.
20. I find girls are a lot more physically attractive than men are.
21. I love muscular arms
22. I prefer text messaging over talking on the phone.
23. I had stopped drinking soda until I went to Taiwan. Coke was one of the few escapes I had to the repetitive Taiwanese food routine. I'm addicted again.
24. I have no self control when it comes to food.
25. I've been swept off my feet, something that I never thought that could ever happen to me.

OMG! Someone FINALLY turned on the fan and that shit that's been stinking up the room while sitting on top is gonna paint em walls! Fortunately, to Ms. Leah's surprise, it was the head teacher himself who flipped the switch. What a dumb ass.
Even tho I finally have physical evidence, I'm still disappointed. Why did it take so long for the foreign teachers to realize the truth? Was their sense of smell really that inefficient? My theory is that they've been around the smell too long to notice.

Mr. Matt, what can I say. Do whatever to me, I won't make noise. But you just HAD to test the waters and fuck with the other foreign teachers. Today, the foreign teachers had to deliver presents dressed up as Santa Claus. Mr. Matt decided to cancel and went off to Taipei, forcing another foreign teacher(who was originally gonna pick up his parents from the airport) to cover for him. There's been stuff piling up but this was the icing of it all. Sadly, I dunno if the curtains will still match. I can't wait for the next foreign teacher meeting.

I can't wait to eat cheese enchiladas! [Dec. 6th, 2008|10:08 pm]

50F weather is fine when I can go inside and nuzzle on the couch but as much as I think Taiwan is more modernized than America (health care, recycling availability, public transportation, etc), they still don't have heaters in buildings. I have to bundle up in 2 layers and wear a hat to keep warm at night. I'm contemplating whether or not to buy a heater for myself. Do I really want to spend $30 to use for 4 months?

So yes, it's extremely cold but luckily I had a mini vacation to make it more pleasant. During my wonderful vacation with a gorgeous man(inside and outside of me, lol!) my cousin told me that my Chinese has improved drastically. I disagreed until the next day, listening to conversation and realizing I'm not picking up only a couple words, figuring out the meaning but instead understanding the complete sentence. I don't have to concentrate as before. I feel bad ass. Tho on the downside, I am starting to speak with a Taiwanese English accent.

The vacation, along with improving my acne, helped me realize that I still have more to work on. I've come a long way emotionally on my anger issues from realizations of the source, my mother. I don't mean that she pisses me off, I am referring to how we deal with anger, over emotional and irrationally. I've come a long way but I understand that I still have some polishing. I still find some of uncontrollable emotional rage in me, senseless and unmanageable. I strive to conquer and discipline myself to a more mature way to handle my emotions. ROAR!!

Being completely critical, what is up with people NOT wearing condoms? Obviously using a rubber is slipping from the mainstream cuz all around me ppl my age and younger are getting married solely cuz of the new bump in the tummy. No matter how ya try to hide it, I still believe that a couple marrying due to pregnancy spawn a bastard child in legitimate clothing through their counterfeit marriage.

This is from a long time ago, but it always makes me laugh!

My friend Daniel, who happens to be a comic book artist, drew a pic of Optimus Prime on a computer program. I saw the pic and created war. I was defeated but then my friend, Steven, cut in and saved Leah's Optimus. This is the result:







In other news, my scooter is a piece of crap. I love my Eggroll/Aunt Jemima/Sliver... but she's a 50CC which from my understanding means that if you go more than 50km/hr then it dies. 50km is 30mph... MY SCOOTER DIES IF YOU GO PAST 30 MPH! WTH!!!!!!!! Hah, still love her tho

So I take back what I said about my kinder classes. I do enjoy teaching them. I can still be myself with the kinder classes, it's the school that wanted me to be wild and crazy. After ignoring them finally(and them realizing that "Oh, maybe Leah isn't incompetent"), I realize I was just having a bad week. Tho I do agree that when you're having a bad day, kinder classes can be a struggle to teach.

But anyway, I've been inspired. I'm gonna teach my K2C(4-5 yr olds) the Soulja Boy hopefully it will be part of the choreography for our Christmas Show. For K1B(3-4 yr olds), I'm gonna teach them the Cupid Shuffle and maybe have it as a way to teach left and right. No worries, I will incorporate the dinosaur into the choreography of one or both dances. And I DEFINITELY will get video evidence if it is worthy, or if I can find new rechargeable batteries that last longer than 30 seconds.

Anyway, after reteaching myself the dances to prepare for tomorrow, I was in the mood, doing the electric slide, the cha cha, the cotton eye joe with bullshit,... it reminded me of Midnight Rodeo! AHHHH! I miss dancing in general! Dancing on the bar, 2 stepping, line dancing with strangers, waltzing, crazy dancing in the gay clubs, booty dancing, DANCING!!!

Yes, I am a complete loser...lol DAMN PROUD OF IT!!!!


I have many things on my MUST DO list when I visit in Jan. After talking to my beloved Jessica, we've decided there's gonna be a costume party since I missed out on Halloween(technically I was a ghost for Halloween but eh, I didn't really get to have fun with it). It'll def be easier than my desired holi party(where am I gonna find enough holi?)
