I got to spend a couple of days at Emily’s lake house for spring break and it was so much fun. I don’t really know what to write about except the lake house was huge and the boat house was so cute and we went jet skiing which was fun and scary and basically, we woke up at 12 every day and spent our whole afternoon lazing around on a Pontoon, soaking up the sun and during the nights, we would bake brownies and watch hsm.
These are the gals I got to spend the first half of my spring break with ^^ - Hannah (my roomie), Emily, Me, Charlotte and Meg.
It is rainy, cold and super windy tonight and I had to walk under the rain because I lost my umbrella and I’m starving because I missed dinner but everything is good because I just met BJ Novak and he is the funniest and the nicest and so crazy good looking up close.
Remember that time I met Boys Like Girls and it was so bad I basically stopped liking them because of it? Hah. Not BJ Novak. Because I am so very incredibly fond of him at this moment.
He is pretty awesome.
I am livid. Just livid. Foals is performing in KL tomorrow and in New York on the 6th and 7th of May and all odds are against me ever seeing them live I swear. I am literally going to miss them by a day for the New York concert. One day. One fricking day. Because I only get in on the 8th and I am furious. I am just so angry.
A professor talks about the issue of racism in Japan
ETA: the person who made this video is being pressured to censor it and take it down from youtube, but he feels that it is very important that people know about it (see the second video he made about it for more info), so please signal boost this or repost it or either way share the video around before it gets silenced!
thisisnotjapan, just wondering what you think of this.
This guy is a Nikkei :-) his name is Miki Dezaki and I’ve linked to the article on him before. He came under a lot of fire from Japanese neonationalist scum for this lesson. I support him!
Please note that he’s suffered a lot for his principled stance, while whiny expat losers like Arudou Debito, armored with white privilege, actually profit from their criticisms of Japan.
“The End was coming soon. I married someone from the religion, a boy named C. I was nineteen and he was twenty. I did not know him very well. C worked the night shift, so I did not see him much. When I returned in the evening he was usually already gone. Sometimes I thought I was imagining him. If I woke late, he would be home and sleeping beside me. I watched him sleep and wondered if he was dreaming. Did he dream about me? He was an unknowable as a photograph.
My days were spent in class. One day my film class screened La Jetée, the story of a man haunted by a single moment, only to discover that the moment is the scene of his own death. I watched it with fascination and horror. Here was the black and white world, the post-apocalyptic After that followed the rumored End. No one wants to live there. It is frozen and perpetual, suspended in static frames. Only a single, blinking moment of real time, a lovers’ gaze, provides relief. I didn’t realize I was holding my breath until that moment. Suddenly I was gasping, released from stasis. A look of love and recognition–––the world seemed to hinge on this axis.
I walked home from class through dirty snow. We had a blizzard that winter, unusual for Virginia. Tree branches and snow, soot and snow, charcoal and snow. Everything was black and white, frozen and imperfect.”

Not only that, the company has said that “this concert will use the learned knowledge from the last world tour and will have better configuring and spectacular production to re-pay the fans”
To welcome the fans’ expectation, as soon as the ticket page for the “Infinite World Tour Encore Concert - One Great Step Returns” opened up, the site was filled and all 20,000 seats were sold out and set a new record as the all-selling-dols.
Infinite’s Encore Concert “One Great Step Returns” will open up on Feb. 28th at 7:30PM and Mar. 1st at 5PM at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium.
