Somebody call the doctor, before I overdose~~
I am, like, insanely obsessed with Ciara's new single. It's just full of awesome vibes, man. (*___*) I also love Colton Dixon's A Messenger album even if it's christian rock. It can actually be kind of secular except for a few songs where he explicitly says Jesus or God. I still wish the people behind Idol made Angie Miller record a studio version for her cover of Never Gone. Rats~
So anyway, I think I found a new show to watch for the summer. Initially, I was questioning the talent they were scouting to be on the show but now that they're up to the final 20, I've found myself hooked. I especially enjoy the judging panel so I'm basically searching up Chinese Idol on YouTube on a weekly basis now. I was kind of surprised that China has bought into the franchise too, but yeah. They're getting with the times.

|*fan girl squeal* he's 35, btw.|
Ironically, I read Zhang Li Yin (Jang Ri In) will be auditioning on The Voice of China Season 2, so I'm guessing SM Entertainment dropped her from their label too. It's kind of sad and unfair because SM just started promoting Henry for solo activities. The only thing Henry has, that Zhang Li Yin is missing, is basically the fan girl appeal which SM can't capitalize on. Meh~! On the bright side, I found out A-Mei (Zhang Hui Mei) is going to be a judge on the second season. I'm so excited because I like her and her ballads.
LOL It's kind of sad that I'm sucked into these singing competitions again because I was so over them for the past 5+ years, but there are covers that are always sooooo good!
I swear, I'm not sucked into the television that badly. It just seems that way. All I'm doing now is basically watching this and the 2pm rerun of the Wendy Williams show. I start class tomorrow so I'll have something more to do soon. During the latter half of my jog last night, I sprained my ankle so I'm finally trying to finish this entry (lol). It's pretty minor since there is no visible swelling, bruising, or inflammation, but it is a biatch to walk. I'm hoping to be able to jog again by Saturday. So much for working out everyday and seeing how much my body starves and craves for energy. In four weeks, it would have been a year since I made the effort to take cardiovascular exercise more seriously. I was hoping to make a larger gain by then. Blerg~ maybe I'll have a flat stomach by my 25th birthday...
Well anyway, since my absence, I went to my workplace to visit my after school babies and picked up a paycheck. Ah~ I haven't seen em in three weeks so it was nice to see my fake babies (hahaha). Also, the day prior to visiting my workplace, I finally got around going to the Natural History Museum. I've been wanting to go there since Dinosaur Hall was opened to the public in 2011. I was going to go by myself but I ended up asking my brother if he wanted to go with me, since he literally just sits on his ass all day and plays games on his computer for hours on end. I was not surprised to find that he did not want to go. He also said it was his jury duty week so I was like 'whatever~'. Later, I asked my dad since I thought it'd be a good way to bond with him since we don't do much. My dad has also lived here for 20+ years and I was pretty sure he has never been to a museum (which turned out to be true), let alone enjoy what the city has to offer, so I was like "why not~". He ended up saying stuff like "Oh~ your uncle really likes that stuff. I'm gonna call him" and I wasn't expecting much out of it but when the day came, they came through! It ended up being a little bit of a drag because I ended up being a tour guide, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
|Mamenchisaurus - the long necked dinosaur!|
|This picture kind of shows you how big the hall is and how giant that skeleton is D:|
|fossilized dinosaur poop! XD!|
|My dad and my uncle looking up at the mamenchisaurus. It's THAT huge!|
|A display you could stand on top of because it's placed within the floor.|
|Some marine reptiles.|
|A long necked marine reptile...that I don't know the name of. Let's just call it "Lochness"...lol|
|The original entrance to the NHM and the huge rose garden in the forefront.|
|One of the temporary displays, so I took a picture of it. A diamond collection... Ooooooh~!|
|This is a Mastodon.|
|This is from the Aztec...Inca...displays...I thought it was really cute for an artifact...LOL.|
|It's a huge furry and pink tarantula D:|
So anyway, I got to the NHM via the Expo Line and was actually my first time on it. We boarded one of the older Japanese made light rail trains and got off Expo Park/ USC station. That meant that it was also the first time I ever saw the USC campus up close. Pretty area....

|Before heading to DTLA, I asked if my dad and uncle wanted to have dimsum since that's what old Chinese people do in the mornings...(lol)|
|*dun dun dun*|
|It looked so sad...(lol)|
That is all. WOO! that was a lot.
