it's official. my summer's over. tomorrow is the start of my frosh week for uni and i'm moving downtown in a few days. boy how fast this summer's gone by! here's to nerves and excitement!

on a sad note, I just found out a friend of mine passed away a few days ago while I was on vacation. I was never really close to her, but she was a best friend of one of my closest friends. any time I spent with her was always lovely. RIP to a young beautiful girl, inside and out. IMY.

now onto a much lighter note...
I just came back from New York City a few days ago... always a pleasure visiting such a crazy busy city haha. this time, it was mad attraction visiting since my past visits have mostly been for shopping and broadway shows. from the MET to MOMA , Rockefeller to Empire State, King Tut to Bodies exhibits, Soho to Times Square, and much to much much more, I don't think I've ever walked so much! Thank goodness for the insanely complicated subway system and metro card that successfully brought me around everywhere. But I must say, the highlight was none other than Wicked. I've been a musical goer ever since I was a little girl, spoiled by my parents and my arts schools. right when Wicked first came out in 2003, coincidentally while on a coach bus ride to watch a Stratford musical, my friends were belting out all the songs. unfortunately for me, I hadn't had the chance to watch it, and the next thing i knew, months had passed and it's run had left Toronto. nevertheless, I bought the soundtrack and diligently memorized the songs, though I had no idea what context everything was in. So you can't imagine how amazing it was to finally see all these tunes fit together to tell such an extraordinary story on stage with such a mindblowing performance! and to see it on broadway too! it is happily returning to Toronto again this october so hopefully I can see it for a second time, but wow am I amazed by Mandy Gonzalez and Katie Rose Clarke! I stand by those who forever believe that Idina Menzel was the best original Elphaba, and that Kristin Chenoweth was the best original Glinda. I do agree, judging by the soundtrack and what i've youtubed lol. But Gonzalez and Clarke added their own sparks to these characters that made them just so perfect as well. alright, I can go on forever praising Wicked, but that's what my physical real life journal's for ;)

anyway, before I left for NY, I did put together a real short r/k video, so as usual, here it is :) this will probably be one of the last ones that i might make in a short while since i'll be busy moving in and adjusting to uni. hopefully it wont be my very last just yet though!

here I am, right in the midst of summer :) haven't done much lately, mostly been sleeping, shopping, and watching movies, you know, just the typical 'i have nothing to do this summer' life. not much planned for the rest of the summer besides hopefully a road trip to montreal, a week in cali, my friend's pageant final, lots of girls nights and a bunch of movie dates ;) here's to hoping my list gets much much longer soon!

been reading lots too. recently finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which was simply amazing. can't imagine how well written it was in swedish! I admit it freaked the hell outta me since I read most of it around 2am a few days ago, but it sure kept me hooked. watched the movie too which I thought was done brilliantly. I know hollywood's planning a remake, but I honestly think the swedish one is perfect and I don't see the need to remake it so soon. most of us are all capable of reading subtitles or listening to dubbed versions anyway. plus, Niels Arden Oplev did a perfect casting job in his film which I'm sure will be hard to top.

anyway, I made another R/K fanvid the other day. didn't spend too much time on it so it's definitely not the best. either way, still a pleasure to share it :) here ya go!

haven't posted here since the olympics! definitely been swamped these past few months with school and university deadlines. there's just a few more days before I'm finally on summer break, and graduated! a few days til my arts program graduation and 3 weeks til commencement :) can't believe I'm almost done!
also signed the lease for the place I'll be staying in next year :) so excited to be living downtown after having lived in the suburbs all my life!

anyway, for some reason I just couldn't fall asleep last night so I decided to FINALLY make another r/k video. I know its been awhile and I do apologize to those I promised so many times that i would update. after my finals next week, I'll be sure to start another vid to make up for the few months I've been gone :) and this time, I'll try my best to keep this promise ;D

oh gosh, my current Olympics obsession: Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir <3
Their ice dancing is flawlessly beautiful... can't wait to watch their original dance tonight!
How gorgeous is she?! and even with the glitches, my Canadian pride is still stronger than ever :)
GO CANADA ♥



And as a dedication during a hard time for many of us,
here's a video made in memory of an amazing friend and r/k shipper, Gauge Richards.
You shone a light in so many of our lives bb. We miss you.

youtube really darn sucks with all the audio muting and video disabling cause of the music. i mean i swear 80% of people go on yt just to listen to music. geeez. thank gawd WMG is soon gonna allow their music on yt again.. just hope it happens fast. well anyway made a new short R/K vid. its really more just on rob and kris individually lol but since they're a packaged deal... its still a robsten vid ;) but youtube disabled the video the first 2 times i uploaded so i had to make a short intro to prevent it from a happening again.. but of course it did again. so i had to go risk my account and dispute it LOL so the video's up for now. but no clue if they dispute claim will be passed. keeping my fingers crossed! 
anyway here's the vid :) shall make a REAL r/k vid soon. i promise :)

LOL hopefully i'll finish in time for the 7th ;P

okay so rewatching it REALLY makes me miss Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush <3 they were so cute! like another Rachel/Ryan for me lol but of course they would never top Robsten ;) but still... just look at them <3 haha screw chad's oth cheerleader extra fiance lol
