My last post of 2008!

Konnichiwa minna-san! It’s Sachi-chan again, who has realized that she’s been using her kaomoji (emoticons) all wrong all this time u.u!

One of my favorite emoticons! ^_^!

One of my favorite emoticons! ^_^!

Actually, they’re supposed to be written with the parentheses, like this –> (^.^). But Sachi-chan was writing them like this –> ^.^. I know it’s not that big of a deal in most cases, but in some cases this can be a problem. Here’s an example:

OK, with emoticons such as *_* – (*_*) and T_T – (T_T) it’s clear what they mean even without the parentheses. But in certain cases when specific emoticons are used, the parentheses are needed to really be able to get the meaning of the emoticon. Like with this one –> ((((/˚o˚)/{STOP)!!! (She’s chasing someone down frantically *LOL*). See, it’s hardly possible to get the whole point of the emoticon.

So from now on I’m going to stop being lazy u_u… I mean (u_u), and take the extra second to add the parentheses to my emoticons. And Sachi-chan apologizes to anyone who felt annoyed by her incorrect use of these emoticons.

But actually, come to thin of it, there really is no right or wrong way to use emoticons. I think emoticons are an expression of your emotions. So if you feel like using these thingies –> [ ] instead of parentheses, oyou should be able to do that without other people having a fit! *nods* [^.^] <– (Sachi-chan is a robot [=.=] *beep-boop-beep* LOL).

Anyway, so Sachi-chan is going to try to make sure to use parentheses or these things –>[ ] or these things –>{ } or whatever fits the situation from now on. [[[[/*o*]/! *LOL* I really like these square looking thingies. They bring out Sachi-chan‘s eyes [*۷*]v! *LOL*

Moving on…

Wow, this is my very last post of this year… and… probably my last post as a co-blogger T_T. As is clear to anyone, my co-bloggers are very inactive here -_-. It’s clear they don’t enjoy blogging half as much as I do, so I’m think I’m just going to relieve them of their “duties” here and take over Cotton Candy Afros myself -_-. I know it’s going to be pretty much the same when I take over… but it just stinks that  I’m gonna be in it alone now. Also there won’t be any back-up for if I go on a vacation or have a busy week or something. And that stinks because I really don’t like having my blog go un-updated for extended periods of time. But I’ll do what I can to make sure to keep up my good blogging habits just like I do now…

Hmmm, speaking of which, I actually feel like I’ve been blogging a bit more than usual lately. Maybe it’s just because I hardly ever have anything useful to do these days ([;_;] <–*is useless*). But I know that will end soon enough, because school starts in about a week from now. [‘~’] I’m not sure whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing, though.

Oh! I forgot! Remember how I blogged recently about a girl named Megan? From a show called Momma’s Boys? -_- Bad news: She’s an actor… which probably means she faked that whole thing. She’s on imdb and everything! And I mean, maybe she was actually being herself, but there’s a great chance that she was just doing some really great acting that night.

Megan Albertus - the actor u_u

Megan Albertus - the actor u_u

I read something somewhere that she supposedly said that she was completely being herself and that she really did go on that show to find true love etc., but who knows if that was even really her? And if it was… why would she give up the act so easily? I guess the world may never know, ne? Anyway, come to think of it, many of the other “contestant” girls on the show are also actors.

But whatever. What else can one expect from a show like this one? Most of these romance reality shows are actually a lot less “reality” than you should expect from a reality show. Anyway, I can’t say it’s not entertaining sometimes. *shrugs*

Sachi-chan must now sign off. From her very last post of this year!

Oh! And a cool NewYears’ Day joke I always make use of on the day before New Years’ Day, is:

Dude, I’m so tired, I’m gonna sleep ’til next year tonight! *LOL* Get it?! *laughs*

… o_o …

OK, maybe it wasn’t that funny -_-. Anyway…

Sayounara minna-san and…


2008 Baton!

Hola minna-san! Sachi-chan at your service!

Right now I’m pretty much bored out of my mind! .__. *sigh* There’s little to do. Nami-chan and Yoshi are, of course, unreachable u_u. And my mom won’t let me go hang out at one of my other friend’s place. *groan* It’s really a dead-end right now.

But fortunately, I can blog to pass time for now… then I’ll see what I find to do after this.

Anyway, I was tagged by Ms. Aya from Paper Diaries to do this 2008 baton to end this year. So I’ll do that now – This should be fun ^.^

Here I go!

1. How was the atmosphere of the year?

Hmmm, well I can’t say this whole year had a single kind of atmosphere, but generally this was a year filled growth for Sachi-chan. In many different ways.

2. How many new friends did you make?

Hmmm, I can’t really remember making too many new friends. I know I made a couple friends through blogging. Also made new friends at websites that I visit regularly.

3. Have you gotten any taller or put on weight?

I don’t think I’ve gotten any taller (HALLELUJIAH! *o*/! – Sachi-chan wants to stay exactly the height that she is for the rest of her life! – about 170cm) and I’m not sure about my weight. I probably lost weight… I’ve been more active this year. I think I’m about 113 lbs. rigt now. I believe I was more earlier this year. *shrugs* Idk.

4. What kind of clothes did you wear?

As usual I’ve been wearing my American style clothes this year. But I think I’ve been dressing even more American than before. Lots of jeans, Converse All-Stars, T-shirts etc. I really stopped wearing sandals and slippers (unless necessary) for a huge part of the year. I also started wearing more stylish formals to church ^_^.

5. Developed any new interest(s)?

Blogging, of course, which I started a month or two ago. I hardly even understood what a blog was before -_-*.

6. Did you fall in love with anybody?

Well, I’m not so sure about love… but  I did develop a pretty big crush on…

Chris Brown ♥_♥ *sighs*

Chris Brown ♥_♥ *sighs*

7. What have you been dreaming this year?

Sachi-chan has been dreaming about:

  • The perfect guy! ♥
  • Growing up to be a successful young woman ^~^v
  • The day I get married!
  • Being chased by a crazy bodybuilder dude in an airport parking lot. o_o

8. What were your sweetest and best moments in Year 2008?

I can’t remember too many of them, but here are a few:

  • When Obama was elected President of America! Wow, that was an amazing experience.

  • Oh! And another one was just a few days ago. When my mom and I watched the opening ceremony of the Olympics in Beijin. That was the most awe-inspiring ceremony of any kind that I have ever seen. I wish I could have been there! – I think I’ll blog about it sometime for those of you who haven’t seen it.
  • Holding my friend Maes’s baby girl for the first time.

9. What were your WORST/FRIGHTENING moment in Year 2008?

Oh! One was this time when my dad, brother and some friends of mine were stupid enough to try climbing this mountain… WITH NO GEAR OR ANYTHING. It was really one of the stupidest things to do. We were just walking along a beach, regularly. Then for no apparant reason, my brother started climbing up this rocky mountain thingy. I would think my dad would have stopped him, but he didn’t. He joined him O_O. Anyway, it’s kind of a long story. I thought I was gonna lose my life that day!

10. What was the most proud thing you did?

Hmmm, yet another tough one. Lets see:

  • Was promoted to my next grade top of my class.
  • I stood up to a teacher who was being unfair.
  • I stood up for my beliefs in God multiple times.
  • Sorry, I can’t think of anything else.

11. What do you regret most?

I regret following my dad up that mountain.

12. How was your birthday celebrated?

It was hardly celebrated. I was “sick” on my birthday (red flag). So when my family took me out to have lunch, I felt so sick I had to rush home. -.-

13. What is the best thing given to you?

God’s gift of LOVE – Jesus Christ!

14. Any confessions to make?

I shot the sheriff!!! ;_; …. ♫But I didn’t shoot the deputy!~♫ ^o^/♫ *LOL*

15. What are the goals that you have achieved?

  • I was able to be promoted to the next year of school, top of my class.
  • I was able (I hope) to help others in different ways.

16. What are the goals that you COULDN’T achieve this year?

Hmmm, I couldn’t eat healthy all the time.

17. What do you have in mind for the upcoming year?

Next year I want to:

  • Continue to do my very best in school.
  • Help many people.
  • Grow in my walk with God!
  • Help others know Him too.
  • Get into the audience of the Oprah Show!
  • Be ON the Oprah Show!*LOL*
  • Have a successful blog!~* ^_^

———————————–Ta-da! Finito!—————————————

Hmmm, ok I pass this baton to anyone who would like to use it. If I may.

OK, that took up enough time, I’ll go now!
