My favorite movie ever is Love Actually and because it's set around Christmas-time, it's also a go-to movie for the holidays. Also in the chick flick genre is The Holiday. Both of these movies are in my DVD collection and both are watched routinely.

Now, for the must-see holiday movies of this 2011 holiday season, there are two:

1) Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law <3. I've been waiting for this one since the first one.

2) New Year's Eve
A bunch of A-list actors/actresses thrown into a cheesy plot line and deemed a "best ever" chick flick... Kind of sounds like Valentine's Day? Also written by people who worked on Valentine's Day and has actors/actresses who were in Valentine's Day. I don't know - I just like the multiple story lines thing, as you can see from the two movies above, Love Actually and The Holiday.

My holiday wishlist is the following:
- A pump espresso machine
- A tablet (although there's no real reason I need one...)
- An exercise bike
- A scale (a Withings one would be neat, but not necessary)
- A FitBit

I think that, just by thinking of the above though, the thing I want most for the holidays is the willpower, perseverance, and determination to stick it with my weight-loss and fitness goals. And maybe just with the decisions I will be making in the near future.

It's a time of change for me and my goals include:
- Significant weight loss
- Passing the CPA exam
- Grad school (Masters? PhD?)

And last but not least, I wish for more time so that I could catch up with people that I haven't seen in so long.

I probably should have done this a long time ago, but this is a friends only LJ. This post marks my graduation from high school! Class of '07, baby! So yeah, this LJ is quite alive compared to its seemingly dead status from the public entries. :) Comment and be added, or just add me and I'll add you.

No fancy banner. Maybe I'll get around to that too.

Memeee. Again. Taking a break from research paper-ing. Stupid existentialist circles. Headache. Anyways, I haven't watched many movies, but yeah.

Taken from ctrl_a:
Go to IMDB.com and look up 10 of your favorite Movies.
Post three official IMDB "Plot Keywords" for these 10 picks.
Have your friends guess the show names.


1. Nightclub, terminal illness, rich snob - Moulin Rouge
2. Father daughter relationship, high society, London - What A Girl Wants
3. Father Son Relationship, Chinatown, Rubik's cube - The Pursuit of Happyness
4. Jar, curse, tentacle - Pirates of the Caribbean (the second one)
5. Writer's block, novel, wristwatch - Stranger Than Fiction
6. Chandelier, gondola, underworld - Phantom of the Opera
7. Chicken, Chinese mafia, counterfeiting operation - Rush Hour 2
8. Memory loss, aquarium, waffles - 50 First Dates
9. Butler, gadget, Tibet - Batman Begins
10. Crooked lawyer, murder trial, faithful husband - Chicago

Some of them easier than others, but good luck!

EDIT with answers. 'Cause like, I don't have that many people who read my LJ anyway. Dx

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
Travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something

I started trying to write the essay again, since I need to submit it by Monday. Luckily, they're accepting it by e-mail now. Anyhow, this time I'm taking the suggestion from my sis. And y'know, 600 words is actually a lot when you're writing it. Well, whatever. Mm... so yesterday, I overslept and woke up with a hugeass headache so I asked my mom to call me in sick and took the day off. It was nice. I went back to sleep and woke up at 11:45am-ish. It was refreshing getting the sleep, but I lost it all last night. Oh well. I wonder what they're looking for in our essays though. There's not really much to say about "growing up as an Asian American" when the rest of the community isn't really... un-Asian. I dunno. I just kind of wonder what they want to read. The form says: "The purpose is to promote cultural connection between generations." I don't really get it.

Like, I kind of understand there is a cultural gap sometimes, but I've pretty much grown up with my Chinese background and stuffs. Mm. It kind of reminds me of when we read The Joy Luck Club though. The mothers and daughters were separated by their generations. Mm, I really liked that book. Well, there'll always be some gap of some sort. It makes me kind of wonder about other Asian families. What are the parents' relationships with their children? I mean, all you hear from Asian teens is complaints about their parents not being satisfied with grades, etc. There's gotta be something deeper than that... y'know? I don't really see my parents much now since I work, but back when I was a kid, I didn't really see them much either. My parents are always working. However, while there does exist somewhat of a gap, I do talk with my parents and I enjoy it when I do.

There is something that bothers me though. Today, when my dad was asking me about what plans I had for Sunday, I replied that I had to go over to a friend's to work on a Lit project. He was saying how while my sister is independent and an adult, I am not and I need to be kept track of. This kind of pisses me off. Once again, he just kind of pops into my life and is able to decide whether or not I get the say. Of course, that's the parent's role, but... I don't know, it just really, really bugs me. "You have your license now and a lot of freedom because of it, but remember that you're not an adult yet." -sigh- Eighteen = adulthood. But, I've been taking care of myself all these years. What does he think I've been doing?

The first star I see, may not be a star.
We can't do a thing but wait.
So lets wait for one more.
And the time, such clumsy time in deciding if it's time.
I'm careful, but not sure how it goes.
You can lose yourself in your courage.

Slowly working on my Hamlet essay. Brings up a lot of questions. I don't know; I complain about AP Lit a lot, but I really think Clark is right. You can't really find the depth of things without suffering. Mm, maybe that's why I try so hard on Lit stuff. I care and I want to find something more from it than just a grade. I know she grades really reasonably though. If you have the evidence to support something, she'll give it to you. As long as your interpretation is backed, you're good. It sucks when you have one or the either but not both, though.

It makes me really wonder about life. Not that I don't already.
