so...i've recently made myself a chinese twitter, more appropriately known as "sina weibo", out of sheer boredom and followed many rising and on demand chinese models. the little descriptions some put under their names are very simple yet inspiring. ex.
be yourself, be happyand
. . . .我就是我. (i'm just me/ i am me/ i am who i am)they both kind of go together. life is short, don't fear being judged, please yourself, don't let others bring you down. i'm sure we all need some little inspiring words every once in awhile. those certainly picked me up...from my periodical sense of hopelessness...
ah i haven't really taken any pictures lately, i don't really have a reason to. i was suppose to go out today but some crap came up. i ended up wandering the mall for awhile before buying boba and then returning home with nothing. i saw this mustard colored cardigan for 10$ but i ended up putting it back and saying "spring is coming anyway"...go me...i'm so rational...lol.
i'm going to start short rant/entries in here now more often because i feel like...my tumblr is getting too many visitors and my privacy is getting a little invaded, especially when this is the more personal side of me. my tumblr is more of the visual, musical, superficial, materialistic side. i took off my link earlier...which i know it technically doesn't do much but i can tell the blogger community and tumblr community is quite different so...it's a little assuring, i guess. i mean...i do like having my blog open but some followers i'm getting on tumblr don't really seem like me? or seem like what i put out on tumblr anyway...
besides waking up to my day off because today is Martin Luther King day, i ate..., showered, went out for a little while, and then came home to update my UC application because i found out my grades from fall semester. i'm a little disappointed but glad at the same time. my GPA remains @ 3.0 (at like 3.08 be exact *sigh)
Elem. Japanese- C
Far Eastern Religious Studies- C
Philosophy (Intro to Crit. Thinking)- A
Traditional African Hist-B
man..i wonder if i happened to do the extra credit for history, whether i could've possibly gotten an A. philo was pretty amazing...i just did all the HW (basically copied the answers from the back), did the written assignments, and memorized the type of questions + answers and concepts from the HW and got an A. I never really read the book or learned anything lol. history was basically open book tests but my teacher expected so much...japanese was hard as hell and i regret not teaching myself more japanese before taking it. religious studies was also hard...and i should've studied more...blah. if i don't get accepted...i won't be too bummed...it just wasn't meant to be, i tried my best.
i'm happy i passed japanese though...towards the end of it...was quite the slippery slope.
i really want to drop one of my classes for spring...because i don't want to wake up early...technically i'm SUPPOSE to take 12 units for health insurance reasons but they never really check for proof...so i'll probably take the risk.
the weight placed upon me with the 2nd graders still burdens me a bit...but i'm starting to adore each and every one of them just as much as i have with my 3rd graders. the only part that i can't get past is how childish they are...it's either...you play along...or (in a controlled manner) yell at them until they calm down and listen. my other kids were more mature and want to know more about you than anything else. they are so adorable though...i'm totally going to have someone help me take a class picture at the end of the year.
some random chats with my kids:
*helping 2 kids with their friday homework*
d: you're wearing sunblock aren't you?
me: because it's hot and my arms are dark. how can you tell? can you smell it? *sniff and rubs arm*
d: because i can. your arm is shiny *cute kid expression*
d: hey peter. yanno my little brother is 3 and he doesn't know his ABCs yet?
me: rly? why don't you help him
d: i am. i'm making this little book for him.
me: *awww* *smile*
so yeah...since it is milan fashion week, i might as well post pictures of my favorite looks, models, and some chinese models' weibo pictures because i adore how they look, dress, and what not.
|Li Zi Feng out in Milan...I don't know why he doesn't book as much big name work as Zhao Lei because i think he's way better looking...|
|uh...the bad ass look i always wish i had. (南伏龙)|
|Daisuke Ueda...my favorite Japanese model at the moment.|
|Zheng Yu Guang...has this pale, prince look to him...and a killer body that i aspire to have...i also love anything he wears...lol|
and now with milan fashion week.
|i sort of like the fact that male fashion is conservative and doesn't move as fast as female fashion because i don't have to "update my wardrobe" as quickly. [Moschino FW11].|
|Ermanno Scervino FW11|
|my childish side really likes this...[D&G FW11]|
some of the pictures from the shoot can be found in my tumblr...but you'll probably have a hard time finding them in the archive because i don't tag my pictures... they can also be found on http://asianmodelsblog.blogspot.com/ ...just look up Zhao Lei
i'll look for typos later...i'm insanely hungry right now...to the point of sweating.
