The Heritage of MK!

Konnichiwa minna-san! MK apologizes first and foremost for allowing her blog to go un-updated for more than 24 hours!!! T_T…

Yesterday, MK was completely engrossed in the festivities which were taking place in Washington D.C.! Obama is now the president! Yay!

I’m particularly happy about this because… (dramatic pause)

….MK is a colored person…. (awkward silence)

Beautiful Island

Beautiful Island

Yes, yes. I know minna-san is very surprised (O□O)’. MK is an Oreo, black on the outside, white on the inside. *LOL*

Of course I’m not african-american, I’m from the islands, but I’ve never really been very much of an islander at heart. Most of the people I know are very island-ish. They really love the islands and plan to live in the Caribbean for most of their lives. MK is very different from that [-__-]. I’ve always been a more international person. I don’t act very much like I’m from the Caribbean.

Why, you ask? Well…. hmmm. I’m not exactly ashamed of the fact that I’m from where I’m from, because in some ways I would have an advantage over other people. But I don’t plan to live here in the islands for much longer. And I don’t think I’ll come back when I’m old or anything. But who knows, right?

Anyway, so I really enjoyed watching the inauguration yesterday. It was happening while we were still at school, so all

Obama taking the presidential oath!

I asked my teacher if we could watch it during class and she said yes! I was so glad, I really didn’t wanna miss it. It’s a really historic event! I’d like to have been there too. Even though I’d be freezing and probably going crazy with claustrophobia, I think it’d still be nice. \ξ([^.^])/ <– *frozen*

Unfortunately, MK must leave soon. I apologize for so many short posts these days.

Oh! Report on Mission: Centro:

So far MK has earned about $10 [-_-] not very much. MK has become something of a penny-pincher. *LOL* Every penny counts! And since MK wants to make the burden on her parents as light as possible she must work over-time! [[[\[‘•’]/ *runs around looking for jobs*

Oh! How is minna-san? Everything going alright? Did anyone get to see the inauguration? What do you think of Obama being president? Oh! Don’t you just love his two littl girls!? ^^

Ja~ne!

Sniper-san!

Konnichiwa, minna-san! Today MK is going to try to refrain herself from blabbering on and on about her dream phone. Minna-san must be very tired of hearing about that now.

So… hmmm. What should I blog about today? *thinks*

Well, tomorrow’s a pretty big day, ne? Is minna-san looking forward to seeing the inauguration of president-elect Barack Obama? I know I am! If I beg, I wonder if my parents will let me stay home from school to see it… Wouldn’t that

be nice?

Hmmm, well MK doesn’t have much else to say about Obama’s inauguration…

Oh!

This morning I saw this thingy on CNN about the snipers who are there lurking in the shadows ready to take out any potential threats. I think snipers are so cool and stealthy! MK is very cowardly, so whenever she plays army video games or games where you use weapons and stuff, she loves to be the sniper so she can hide in the shadows where no one can shoot her back. *sneaky laugh*

Hmmm, Yoshi-kun said that he’s going to blog today… I wonder if he’ll really do it, and if so, what will he post about?

Well, MK has a busy day ahead of her. I have about two hours until I begin work [^_^]. And I have a test tomorrow that I haven’t studied for yet, plus I got three homework assignments. But since my employer has told me that I can work on homework at the job when I’m not busy, I’ll do that there. But I’m gonna get to studying in a few minutes because I doubt I’ll be able to study well at work.

So it is now time for MK to say sayounara to minna-san! But instead she will say…

Ja~ne!

The Keitai Craziness Continues!

Bonjour minna-san! It is MK who has been dreaming of her lovely dream cell phone [*.*]. How is minna-san doing? Have you all been having a nice weekend resting and relaxing?

MK’s weekend has been nice so far. Nami-chan came over to my place yesterday, we had a really nice time hanging out in the afternoon. Then in the night we played WiiMusic for a bit, but were interupted by MK’s beloved \[♥v♥]/! But, SHHHH! MK is only a secret admirer of her beloved [;_;].

Dream phone~!

Dream phone~!

Anyway, I must not put my focus on sad things at this moment. [-__-]

MK is SO anxious about her plan to have her Palm Centro in her hands within a few month (wish I didn’t have to wait so long).

What’s my plan, you say?

MK’s Plan to get her dream phone within months:

OK, I can’t get this phone on my island so I’ve been browsing around for it on Ebay.com. And I was pretty dismayed to see that it costs about an average of $300 \[O□O]/!!! And the thing that’s just so uncool is that if I lived in the States and had a subscription with a carrier (like T Mobile or AT&T) I could get it for under $50! *cries*

Anyway, that’s just the way things are. So my plan is, since I now have a job, and my birthday is coming up in a couple months, I’m going to save and save until it’s almost my birthday, and then I’ll give my parents the money that I saved and they’ll pay the rest for the phone. [^_^] … Or so I hope. [-_-]

But anyway, so that’s basically my plan. I have about 40 work hours until my birthday, so I’ll have to do whatever extra jobs and tasks on the side to earn more. Every dime counts! *determined* I’m really feeling hopeful and praying everyday that God will help me to get the perfect phone!

So MK will begin work tomorrow and will report to minna-san regularly on how things are working out with MK’s plan!

Ja~ne!

Keitai Crazy!

Konnichiwa minna-san! The last couple of days, MK has been thinking and dreaming a lot about getting the perfect cell phone! [*v*]

I’ve never really been the that person who has her cell phone with her at all times and gets a call or a message ever ten minutes. That’s probably because of a couple of different reasons:

  • MK has few friends who would call her. [-_-]
  • She’s hardly ever not at home, so it doesn’t make much sense for her to have a mobile phone when MK is so immobile and anyone can just reach her on her house’s phone.
  • When she finally does go out she normally just forgets her phone at home.

These and more are reasons why MK should not get a cell phone [;_;].

BUT!

Now, I have more reason to get a cell phone because…:

  • Yoshi-kun and Nami-chan both have cell phones that they use very actively. So now I have people to call and be called by. [^_^]
  • This year I have some new activities outside of the house (such as a new part-time job [n_n]), so in order for others to contact me, I need a cell phone, ne? *wink*
  • I’ve gotten into a good habit of always making sure to have certain things when I leave the house. Things like, my PSP, headphones, my palm pilot and anything else I need to go to that specific place. So, this means I should be able to remember not to leave my phone at home all the time. Also, I wanna get a really nice cell phone that I love, so that I’ll want to have it with me all the time.

Yes, so for those reasons, MK is in need of a mobile telephone…

What kind of a cell phone has MK been dreaming about?

Well, I have some ideal features that would be perfect in my phone. I know to get all of these features in one phone could be pretty expensive, but that’s just what I would get if money wasn’t an issue. But unfortunately, it is.[u_u]

Anyway, the ideal phone for me would have to:

My organizer - Tungsten E

My organizer - Tungsten E

  • Have a good camera, the more megapixels the better.
  • Have a keyboard/keypad. I really don’t like entering text with the normal number buttons on a cell. It takes forever!
  • Have a good calendar and to-do list.
  • Look somewhat japanese keitai-ish. ^^
  • And a bonus would be that it has a MP3 player and can use regular headphones/earphones.

So, those are features you’ll probably only find together in a smartphone or of course an iPhone. And since an iPhone is probably out of the picture for poor MK-chan,  why not check out smartphones? It doesn’t hurt to dream, right? [^.^]

OK, so when I think of a suitable phone with all of these features, I  immediately think of Palm phones.

You see, my organizer is a Palm Tungsten E. It’s super old! I’ve probably had it for 6-7 years now, and it still hasn’t failed me. [*v*] That’s why I think a Palm smartphone would be a good way to go, ne?

So when I googled “Palm phone” on Google images, one that caught my eye was the Palm Centro. I really don’t know anything about this phone yet, so I’ll definitely be looking into it. But for starters, it looks nice, doesn’t it?

Pink Palm Centro - Ooh! Its pretty!

Pink Palm Centro - Ooh! It's pretty!

I think it’s pretty cute and I’m guessing it’s just like an organizer, a camera, and an MP3 player in one. Hmmm, maybe I should stop guessing and search for some solid info.

Anyway, MK must come back out of dream land now, and get begin doing homework.[;_;] I’ll look up some more info about some more possible phone choices and let minna-san know later, OK?

Ja~ne!
