Took a trip to NYC not long after I finished my student teacher practicum. I love New York! It's such a green green green state! I'm sure the weeks of rain prior to my arrival helped a lot but while vrooming up and down the highways north of the big apple, the amount of greenery they had made me sort of think we would seen green signs for Vancouver at any given moment. But being so close to the city, the New York City manner of speech was a constant reminder that I was on the other side of the continent and maaaaan is it nice over here too! 

But I'm back and have been back for more than a month already. I really want to get out of here for a little while!  Changing over to the career phase of life feels like a sentence than anything else. Yet I  absolutely cannot wait to enter that phase for that horribly desirable stuff called MONEY. I  hate the stuff itself but looove some of the things it can be exchanged for!  

I realize I  still haven't posted my photos from my happy trip last year but don't have any interest in going through all that yet. So before this trip becomes too faded, here comes some memories!

pffft i dont even know either

Been a while since I've drawn anything from imagination like this! Sort of felt like I'd forgotten how to draw. ( =  W = )a

I'm nervous about the future~! I have two distinct opportunities developing and I'm not sure which one I'd pick. Both are related to education, my fresh little degree if I don't fuck up this last practicum, but one is so much more direct in developing my skills than the other. But this latter opportunity is something that I've been wanting... I think? BLAH! :(

I finally watched Inception the other day!!! :D IT WAS AWESOME! I bawled like a baby when Cobb was speaking to Mal at the end. Reading about how Christopher Nolan crafted the film to make the emotional a driving factor was just the best! :D And I cracked up soooooo badly when Cobb was talking to Yusuf about the number of dream levels....


Cobb leans in closer.


/(@      Z @)\


Anyways. Why would anyone watch this movie film five times over? :O It wasn't especially difficult to track the dream levels. The dreamer would never leave his level of dreaming to another person's to protect others within his dream. 

...ahahah Yusuf and the rain. AH HA HA H AHA Oh my gosh that guy is silly. :D

Such a pretty cardigan! And the "veins" in the skirt make it wonderfully organic.

Those "leaves" are like feathers on a bird! ( * W* )/

Speaking of feathers!

A rather sombre collection in spite of the light, creamy colours the line is sporting for fall. I guess the audience for this label is more business than partay ?

The pattern of the print is not appealing but I like the silhouette of the dress itself. But arm warmers? (@ o @)a

What reference is that wide neckpiece making? Wish there were details on the belt. :T

Such a sweet ensemble!

Fantastic! Love the feathery arms, the collar, the rufflage on the dress (what kind of a fold is that called?)

More subdued colours, but that jacket is AMAZING!

Love love love that dress! And what a dreamy kind of yellow~! X3

Like a mature sort of school girl look? Very sweet!

Oooh~ the jacket is soft but looks so wonderfully tailored! ( * W * )

Bring the badass to puffed sleeve, hehehe!

It's that folded bit again, I likey much!!

colours: flax and lemony yellows, dodger blues, light silvers and greys, and of course lots of blacks for that anchoring contrast.

When I'd exhausted the vault of clips from the Daily Show at the Comedy Central website, I turned to Canadian programming (namely, The Hour) to fill my mundane hours of procrastination. I caught Georgie Stromtrumplelumplelous interviewing some interesting people like Barbara Walters and Sarah Pahlin and Robert Munsch, but the guy who really caught my cogwheels a thinkin was Georgie's interivew with Dana White, current president of the UFC.

The thing is that the UFC really became popular in the past few years. White credited the success to the way they marketed the show: focus on the people and the interest in the game itself will follow. That's why so many women, not the target demographic here, became part of the viewership. The ladies were in it for the personalities and stories, not the smashing and thrashing. And that is so totally true!

So I'm a boxing fan mostly because I'm really addicted to Hajime no Ippo, a manga and anime that's damned addictive. The character art is pretty horrible and the fights go on foreverrrrrrrrrrr.... BUT! The protagonist is a really sincere kid and the author did well in convincing the readership to sympathize with his obstacles and challenges. (And it doesn't hurt that the anime did a WICKEDAWESOME job in getting fantastic voice actors to do some serious work in conveying the hilarity.)

Because of Ippo, I'm totally into present day boxing. Now I don't know aaaanything about sincere boxing, but I'm really entertained by the people and the pomp they parade. Like Floyd Mayweather Jr. Talk about flashy! He was a complete arsebag in his fight with De la Hoya from spring 2007 but you know what? I think he does it because he knows it's fuggin hilarious. He's a troll I R L. And I honestly believe he's friggin talented and skilled. MAN I am so impressed with his defense, it is like redonk!!!

Anyways, boxing is an entertaining sport. And I totally forgot about the Sugar Shane Mosley vs Antonio Margarito fight!!!! Looks like Margarito was messing around with his bandages. Maybe that's why he had such a super duper punch? But I liked Mosley, he seemed so suave when he was helping De la Hoya for that spring 2007 fight with Mayweather Jr.

.... and now I can't remember why I started on this topic. :T Anyways, Ricky Hatton vs Manny Pacquiao in May 2009. That's gonna be a fun fight! I wonder when Mayweather is going to be in the ring again? I heard he's moving on into the entertainment world, but I'm sure he'll eventually find himself in the ring a few more times. He's still a young guy. I want to see him fight some more! LOVE THAT SHOULDER ROLL! s( * W *)9

books: Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers has been released recently! I'm rather curious about the subject matter; the notion of success is very subjective but from a larger societal point of view, it's very particular. It will be interesting to see how Gladwell addresses it and I don't think he'll disappoint: "It struck me that our understanding of success was really crude—andthere was an opportunity to dig down and come up with a better set ofexplanations." link Gladwell looks like he's examining the larger social forces at work to how the business of success is formed and shaped~ should be a fun read when it comes out in paperback! XD

neuropsychology: H.M. was a character who I've seen in many of my travels through psychology textbooks. Turns out that he passed away last Tuesday and that his full name is Henr Gustav Molaison. There was an article in the thoughtful section of Sunday's newspaper and it hit me hard for some reason. Through his participation and cooperation with so many scientists, particular Brenda Milner, he provided data and and helped to create insight into the notion of memory and its capacity. The newspaper article made note that Mr. Molaison was very friendly and helpful... but my heart just goes out to him. To be treated as a scientific subject moreso than a human being must have really hurt. Yet, I'm so thankful. Rest in peace, Mr. Molaison.

fists: Manny Pacquiao won against de la Hoya yesterday!!! I was stoked for this fight after watching the first episode of the the docu-style episodes HBO had on their training on youtube last week. I usually prefer the lighter weight classes because there's much more opportunity to see footwork and dodging at play, but Pacquiao's handspeed is just bonkers! So I have no qualms watching him go toe-to-toe with other fighters. It's just tremendous! From what I've read (I didn't actually catch the match :P) de la Hoya was outclassed in speed, punches, and footwork. He was slow to respond and didn't seem to dictate, as he was advised, with his fists. Whereas Pacquiao was quite relentless which lead to a TKO in the eighth round... a doctor's stop. Nacho, his second, was telling him that it was over. Can you believe it?! Wow. Well, golden-boy de la Hoya, I would invest in just being good looking and managing companies. Your time in the ring, sir, is over. :T
