Okay, if you’ve been following for a while…

Hold on, wait, damn, I start a lot of my posts this way.

Whatever.

You’d know that I’m Filipino (not exactly proud, but I’d say it if you specifically asked for my ethnicity. If you ask what am I, I’d say an American. Again, not proudly. I’d love to be English, lots of people would love to be English). [Keep reading after the break to find out what the hell I’m going on about!] (more…)

I dislike schoolwork, but I’m looking at schools.

I apologize to any of you and all of you who are readers of my posts, specifically. Due to my load of schoolwork from AP classes, I have not had a chance to fulfill my duties as a contributing co-editor. I’ve been keeping updated with the blog, but need to make some edits on grammatical/spelling errors, not like anyone cares. I love you all.

Anyway, the point of this post was to inform people of the colleges I wish to attend and to pose a question, which will be asked at the end of the post and to be answered by you, the readers, in the comment section below.

I’m really looking towards two schools, both in the New York City area.
— School of Visual Arts (SVA),  Manhattan
— Pratt Institute, Brooklyn (with locations in Manhattan and Utica)

another college I may consider is the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). I might consider FIT, but that’s a very slim possibility.

The question(s) I wish to ask is(are)… Should I be following my dreams to become a graphic designer?

Earworm: “Gangnam Style” by PSY

Okay, what? I don’t understand a word of this. I’m an American of Filipino descent. The only words of this song I understand are “Heeeeeeeey, sexy lady!” That’s it. But that doesn’t stop Gangnam Style from being today’s Earworm. I hate Korean dramas. I hate Chinese dramas. I hate Filipino dramas. I hate all Asian dramas. Except maybe Japanese anime. That’s something mostly every Asian loves. But then there’s the music. Chinese power ballads. J-pop. K-pop. WHAT IS THIS?! All things Korean have taken over the minds of my generation, but thankfully, it hasn’t caught up to me. I first caught wind of this song when JustKiddingFilms (A YouTube group of film makers, known for being hilarious) made a parody of the song. It definitely helped that the extremely gorgeous Geo Antoinette (http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m4bc4nMujn1qc06bjo1_500.jpg) and the insanely hot Holly Lee (http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lrg3y1Xgk81qa4jmro1_500.png) are in the video. But it’s really funny, so here it is. And then, I saw a picture on Facebook posted by WongFuProductions (Another YouTube group of film makers, known for being hilarious and very dramatic). This is said picture. https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/540362_10150981849136767_88683596_n.jpg This post led to another parody video called Gundam Style. They replaced all the faces with Gundam heads. Now THAT, is hilarious. Oh, and here is the actual video and song.  The girls in this video aren’t too bad, either. Heh. And finally, the English translation to the song. Within the comments section on YouTube, I learned that oppa is what some girls call a love interest in Korea, because it makes the guy feel manly. And Gangnam is a suburb of Seoul, so Gangnam style is the style of Gangnam. Yes. That literal.
