MK’s going to be a Farmer!!!

*dreading doing HW*

*dreading doing HW*

Konbanwa minna-san! Genki desu ka?

OK, MK‘s not really going to be a farmer (well actually, who am I to say? One day, I might). But yesterday, although I wasn’t supposed to be working this week (we have lots of tests to study for), I ended up having to go anyway because I was “needed”. I guess that’s the meaning of responsibility… [u_u]

Anyway, so although MK was all alone at work and had very little to do, she couldn’t bring herself to begin studying for the test she had the following day. This happens to me ALL the time, I don’t get why I just need to find something else to do instead of just getting my homework or studies over with… [-__-] I guess that’s the meaning of irresponsibility. (LOL)

So, insteady of studying MK decided to entertain herself by playing around randomly with her Centro. After calling and texting random people and typing random stuff on my QWERTY keyboard (it’s fun to type when you have a full keyboard! [^-^]), I decided to look around the store (where I work) at the “merchandise”. As I was looking around I came across a somewhat interesting little booklet.

*Interesting little booklet*

*Interesting little booklet*

Apparantly it’s a “farmer’s almanac”. I know I used to have this “Almanac” book with lots of information in it about pretty much everything. It was pretty fun to have. (I wonder where it is now[.__.]{?). So, I would guess that this little interesting booklet must have all kinds of information about farming.

Hmmmm…

I’d seen quite a few people come in and buy such booklets during my days working at the store, but I’d never really looked inside. So… why not learn something new about farming?

Mr. Mac Donald

Mr. Mac Donald

Apparantly this guy↑ was Mr. Mac Donald (hence the name of the booklet, “Mac Donald’s Farmer’s Almanac”). The picture wasn’t extremely clear in the book, so it came out even worse on MK’s Centro‘s camera [-__-]{Gomen). I’ve never heard of a “Mac Donald” in history or anything and I don’t think this is the founder of the fast-food restaurant McDonalds (I’m lovin’ it♪♫ [n_n]).

Moving on…

The booklet consisted pretty much completely of pages like this…↓

One of the pages of the interesting booklet

One of the pages of the interesting booklet

MK was way too lazy to read what these pages said, but there were pages like this (filled with long sentences and words [>.<]) for every month of the year. It seems this “information” inside of this booklet was based at least partially on the stars and the zodiac and those kinds of things.

There was this one page, though, that drawed MK’s attention, mostly because it wasn’t filled soley with boring stuff about farming…↓

Less boring page

Less boring page

I don’t think minna-san can tell exactly what that sentence under the pictures of the people says, but it says: “A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.” Not sure exactly what that phrase means… but I guess it’s trying to say something like “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”.

This page had about 10 different “jokes”, but I only found a couple to be kinda funny. So I took note of this funny one:

“Nature was very wise. It planned two ears for man and only one mouth.”

Hmmm, well I guess that wasn’t that funny… [.___.]

Alright, MK has lots of work to do today, so I must leave now.

Have a lovely day and… SMILE, Jesus loves us all!

Ja~ne!

MK’s long-awaited PALM CENTRO Review!!!

*SUPER EXCITED!*

*SUPER EXCITED!*

KONBANWA MINNA-SAN!!! [^-^]/

Is minna-san having a lovely day today? Well, MK has wonderful news…

My Palm Centro (dream keitai) has arrived!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

\[*Δ*]/{YAYAAYAYAYAYAAAAAY!!!!)

Wow! MK is still in awe that her phone which she worked so long and hard for, has finally arrived in her hands! [•◊•]{?!)

I actually got it on Friday, so MK will share with minna-san a quick story of when she recieved her phone:

It was Friday, I had just gotten home from my unexpected trip to the hospital (I was having issues with my heart – gonna have to give blood tomorrow [0.0] for them to figure out what’s up). I decided, since I was going out of the house to go to work, I might as well pass by the Post Office on my way there. I really didn’t expect for anything to be there because they said they’d call me when it arrived. But I went anyway, and to my surprise, the guy working there called me over and said that MY PACKAGE HAD ARRIVED!!! MK stayed very calm as the package was handed over to her (didn’t want to act crazy in front of all those people). After recieving two packages (one with new keitai and one for grandpa), I walked quickly to the phone company placey where I bought a SIM card for my new phone! I wasn’t fully sure whether I should go to work with my package and open it there (I had about 25 min before I had to be at work), or if I should run home and quickly unbox the phone and carry it to the shop. I decided to do the last option, that’s why the pictures for the review will seem a bit rushed…

Alright, time for the pictures of the…

UNBOXING

Note: Many of these pictures are pretty much pointless, but at the time MK felt as though she had to record every step of the unboxing.

OK, so MK quickly opened her box and saw purple bubble-wrap. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen purple bubble-wrap before in my life…

Purple Bubblewrap - fun to play with!

Purple bubble-wrap - fun to play with!

So, after taking out the pretty purple bubble-wrap, MK discovered, to her fascination…. [0.0]

Under the bubble-wrap

The box of her PALM CENTRO!!!!

I then took the box out of the shipping box, with much caution – didn’t want anything to go wrong…

Palm Centro box - Let's see what's inside, shall we?

Inside of the box I found…

– A “Read this First” Booklet…

Of course, I did not read it first - Who has time for that?

– A “Quick Reference” Booklet.

Will keep this, I know it'll come in handy

After getting through the little booklets and un-important stuff….

By this point MK is bursting with joy! My brother was just ignoring me while I was making a whole lot of noise. It was kinda funny (MK’s brother → (¬_¬)

– Here are the leftover contents in the box↓

Charger, USB Cable, Headphones

Charger, USB Cable, Headphones

————————-

So… That was the unboxing of MK’s new Palm Centro!

Something that MK noted as she was unboxing:

  • The size of the phone. Trust me when I say this. The Palm Centro is a very decieving little guy. When you see him in pictures, he looks so big and fat and heavy. But when you see him in person… it’s quite a shock. At least it was for me.

The tiny size of the phone is one of my favorite things about this phone. I’ve never been a fan of big chunky phones that look like a PSP, so I was very pleasantly surprised to see just how small it is.

One thing that many people seem to complain about with this phone, concerning it’s size, is the keyboard. Honestly, it is quite small. And I can understand why most people would have a problem with that. It’s not such a big deal for me because my hands aren’t that big. But I wouldn’t advise my dad or any man above the age of 11 to get this phone because I really don’t know how someone with hands as big as my dad’s (or bigger) could manage with such a tiny phone.

So, the keyboard can easily become unbearable if you don’t have small hands. That’s why I think that in general, you should only buy this phone if you’re a teenage girl or a woman with really small hands. Advice to anyone who’s planning on buying a Palm Cento: Try it out, if you can.

OK, on to…

The CAMERA:

The Palm Centro has a 1.3 megapixel camera. Nothing special…. It can take pictures (2x zoom) and record videos (no zoom).

MK took two pictures with her Centro:

No zoom

No zoom - LOL Hello Kitty!

Zoomed

Zoomed

Sorry about the lame topics of my pics. I really didn’t have anything interesting to take pics of [-_-].

Now for the video…. OK, I did this video myself. Very embarrassing, but again, I had nothing better to tape…

[…]

Uh oh! The type of file that the Centro’s videos are cannot be uploaded… [-__-] I’m gonna have to look for a converter if I want to be able to use those vids for anything. Accept my apologies [u_u]…

Hmmm, what else is there to say?

Don’t have much else to say. One bad thing is that the USB cable is kinda hard to disconnect from the phone and I’m always afraid that I might break something while pulling it so hard to get it out…

About how MK’s enjoying having this new phone:

I really love it. Of course I don’t get tons of calls, and I have a prepaid cellphone account, so I always have to watch how much I’m calling or texting. But I do really like being able to always contact whoever I need to contact. Also, I’ve set up twitter on my phone, so I can send tweets through text messages, which is very cool…

Alright, MK is getting tired. This has been a very long post and I’m now ready to retire to my quarters to enjoy my phone some more! [^-^]v

Sayou!

Cool Sims 2

*going to have lunch*

*going to have lunch*

Konnichiwa minna-san!

MK is kinda starving and about to go get something to eat, but I was just searching around Youtube and came across this awesome Sims music video! The song is “Hot and Cold” by Katy Perry. I LOVE IT! Just looking at this video shows you how awesome The Sims 2 is! LOVE LOVE LOVE this video!

What does minna-san think?

Gotta go, hope you liked it! [^.^]

Ja~ne!

Big Responsibilities

*blank*

*blank*

Oyasuminasai minna-san…

MK‘s had a really crappy day today [;_;]. But MK will not be boring minna-san with the long story of what happened today that causes her to say that.

I just wanted to quickly let minna-san know, and apologize in advance that she’s going to be very busy this week and probably won’t be able to blog daily.

Why?

MK has very big responsibilities at her job this week [.__.]. My manager is away for the week and so MK is now kind of an “acting manager” of the store where she works. So I stay at work about an hour longer and I have to take care of the money and the keys to the store and everything [•_•] *wonders if manager made a mistake*. Because I have to stay longer at work, my schedule’s totally chaos now. I have pretty much zero free time until about 8pm, and I never know whether my mom might decide to turn MK’s lights off at 9 or 10… [>.<]

So, once again, MK apologizes for her inactivity this week, and thanks minna-san for their support.

Ja~ne*

Update on Mission: Centro!

*Anxious*

*Anxious*

Konbanwa minna-san! Genki desu ka?

Minna-san might be wondering how things are going concerning MK’s “Mission:Centro“. This was a “mission” that MK started when she needed a cell phone. She decided that since times are hard for her parents lately, she would work to earn the phone that she wants herself, for a change. So now, MK is going to update minna-san on the status of her mission.

MKs new cell phone! ^.^

MK's new cell phone! ^.^

OK, so the last time MK posted about this mission, she was still working to earn the money needed to buy the phone. But MK is happy to tell minna-san that she has bought a red Palm Centro!

Unfortunately, since I bought it online, I still have to wait a little less than a week before it arrives. But I’m already SO excited! Within the next week I should recieve a call from the Post Office telling me that my package has arrived! \[^o^]/~*

On Friday, I got a letter with all kinds of cool formal stuff [*v*]{Ooooh!). And then I had to go to the Post Office to sign some paper concerning the package. All of this is causing MK to become even more anxious about this package arriving!

OK, so as soon as MK recieves her package, she will either film the unboxing or take many pictures to show minna-san!

Until then, God bless minna-san!

Sayou!

Tagged by Sheep-chan!

*Tired*

*Tired*

Oyasumi minna-san!

MK is beginning to feel sleepy, but is going to quickly do this tag before hitting the sacks.

I actually have two other tags that I still have to do (Doushiyou, doushiyou!) but since this one’s really short and interesting to MK, I’ll do it quickly.

OK, enjoy!

Rules: Once you’ve got tagged, you have to answer ALL the questions HONESTLY. Lastly, choose 6 people to be tagged. (Uh oh! Sachi-chan is all alone and has no one to tag!)

How old were you when you had your first relationship?
Hmmm. Well I guess when I was in kindergarten we had something of a “marriage” game that we used to play… I was probably 4-6 years old. Nothing serious though. [n_n]

Are you single/taken?
Single. Just keeping my eyes open. Not really ready for a real relationship yet… So please do not ask MK to be your girlfriend (she could turn out to be your worst nightmare MK —>\[°Дº]/<RAAWR!))) *Laughs nervously* Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Do you like anyone right now?
Well, it depends what “Like” means… I have crushes… but I definitely do not “Love” anyone romantically… That’s all I’ll say…

Ever had your heartbroken?
Well… I guess… MK is probably too young to be sure though… I don’t think I’ve ever fully been “in love” per say, so that means I couldn’t have truly had my heart broken, right?

Miss anyone right now?
My big sister. \[TAT]/*boo-hoo*

Who was the last person you sent a text to?
My best friend, Nami-chan.

Last person to text you?
… Don’t remember… N/A

Last person you saw?
This guy who I never saw before… and probably won’t see ever again…

What was the last thing you said to someone?
“OK” – to my mom. (She was telling me not to leave the food out on the counter otherwise it’ll spoil)

Who is your top friend(s)?
God, Nami-chan and Yoshi-kun! You might know Nami-chan and Yoshi from MK’s old blog. These are my closest friends…

Who do you trust the most in your life?
God. You can’t trust people… They’re mean! [;_;]

Who do you love most?
God.

Ever been in love?
I probably thought I was in love a couple times, but I doubt it was ever the real deal.

Who has hurt you the most?
My dad. No further comment.

Has a tragedy ever happened in your life?
Well, uhm… my cat died a very sad death after living a very sad life. [T.T]

Are you happy?
I’ve got the best friend in the WHOLE WORLD! (God) That makes me happy!

How many good friends do you have?
Three, max.

Are there some songs you cannot listen to because they remind you of someone?
There is this song that reminds me of 9/11… We were listening to it when we saw it on the news.

Have you ever cheated on a partner?
Nope.

Ever been cheated on?
Not that I know of…

Ever been told someone loved you?
… I think “like” was the word that was used…

Ever told someone you love them and meant it?
A family member. And my best friends…

Not meant it?
I forget… [.___.]{…)

What is your idea of true love?
That you would give your life for that person. Or that you’d sacrifice your happiness for that person to be happy. Or something to that effect.

Do you believe in love at first sight?
Nope. Not real love. I believe in attraction or infatuation at first sight, but not love.

Do you believe that it is best to have a friendship first then love?
Definitely. For me it’d be really hard to just go straight to being romantically involved with someone withought having known them closely as a friend. (Not saying it’s impossible, just my opinion from my experience)

I Tag:

[T_T] I only have one person to tag!

1. Sleepy

And anyone who’d like to do this tag…

——————-

Yatta! (I did it!)

Now it’s time for me to head to bed! Bye bye! Off to dreamland!

Ja~ne!♦

MK’s Tweets

*Feeling droop*

*Feeling droop*

Tadaima minna-san! It is I! MK!

This morning my class and I went on a hike. It was definintely not a relaxed hike. There was much walking up very steep paths and stuff. And you’d think that at the end of such a hike there’d be some grand thing that would cause us all to be happy that we came all this way (some beautiful oasis/ awesome jungle with cute monkeys). But you’d be wrong… There was really nothing special. [-.-]

Anyway, MK has limited time, so she will quickly tell minna-san about:

Twitter

OK, well some might have already heard of it, and maybe even have accounts on Twitter. If you look at the sidebar on the left ← you’ll see a widget called MK’s Twitter. If you read them you’ll see that they’re all basically answering the question: “What are you doing?”. And that’s basically what Twitter is, it’s a way to stay connected through frequent, very short posts (called tweets) wherein you state what you’re doing at the moment.

I know when you first learn about Twitter, it seems like a really pointless idea. That’s why I don’t understand just why Twitter is so popular. Because I felt just the same way when I first learned about it. But when you join, it’s actually quite fun. It’s a great, fun way to keep connected.

Twitter Logo

Twitter Logo

One thing that I really love about twitter, is that it makes you feel close to people who physically aren’t that close. For example, celebrities. I know of some famous people that twitter, some more than others:

  • P. Diddy/Sean Combs
  • Martha Stewart
  • Ryan Seacrest
  • Shaquille O’Neal
  • Tony Hawk
  • Barack Obama
  • John McCain
  • Britany Spears
  • Vanessa Hudgens
  • Ellen Degeneres
  • And more

Wow, that list’s longer than I expeted, and there are more, of course, so it’s quite a few celebs on there. I think that’s pretty cool.

Anyway, so I’m letting minna-san know that if anyone would like to follow MK on Twitter (I tweet quite frequently), you can look for me on Twitter. You can, of course, follow me if you want, and let me know, ‘cuz I’d love to follow minna-san too!

OK, MK is feeling rather tired at the moment, so, I guess that means it’s time for me to go. [u_u]

Ja~ne!
