What happened to my Textcube blog?!

maibliavue.textcube.com --->maibliavue.blogspot.com?
Yes I knew this would happen. BUT WHY?! I wonder why my Textcube blog got transferred to blogspot. Damn you Textcube! Just when I was getting along with making post you had to change...

Why don't I just stay with it? Well firstly, I used to have blogspot, but I didn't want to use it. So I signed up for Textcube and now this?! Well...it looks like I'm back to where I'm from. That was disappointing! One thing from my hate list is changing too much stuff. I wish it hadn't change at all! This is my rant for the day. Anyways let's deal with it. I changed the look of my new blog. I thought it looked creative. Hopefully everyone can read the font. I'll change it if it's hard to read. Good luck everyone!

Apple iPod Touch 4th Generation

Yes I got mine! :D It has a built in camera. Having it, I thought it is so convenient to take pictures without having to carry a camera. With this, I can finally blog on my me2day with pictures attached. Sadly, I tried to blog on here, but I couldn't type in here. I don't know what happen or why. Here's my me2day blog: me2day.net/maibliavue

I don't use much apps. All I do is take pictures of random things, listen to music and podcasts and radios, go to youtube, and practice Korean. Maybe there's more...? I don't play games on it very much. I might doodle when I get bored. XD Anyways, tell me what's good to do on the iPod. Any entertaining apps out there?

By the way, I got a new shoulder bag. These days, I'm obsessed with shoulder bags. I don't know why, but I just think they're very stylish for students. umm okay? ㅋㅋㅋ

The color isn't that bright...it's just the light. I love this color (baby green)! And patterns :)

After the day I rode my bike, I'm starting to get sore and the seat is so uncomfortable. ㅋㅋㅋReally! When I got home, I realized that I could've waited for my ride. Damn it was tiring riding 9 miles from school to home. In a way, it was good exercise, but then I get so tired that I find myself seeing stars right when I get home. And also, my legs become so weak and sore that I can hardly move. I think that's a bad sign that I need to drink more water? *Sigh* I have to ride back home for today too. Thinking about it...I don't want to ride my bike anymore. ㅋㅋㅋ But I want to get home ㅎ_ㅎ I'm in the school library and I have Music class next. I hope Music class is fun... It will be! :)

Piano (Heart and Soul)

Today, I had music class and I learned how to play the piano. I've always wanted to play the piano, but never have time to practice it and I needed someone who's a pianist to teach me. Well, this semester, I have piano class so I can finally learn to play it! :) Awhile ago, I practiced the piece "Heart and Soul". It's a wonderful piece of work and so is Canon. After I master "Heart and Soul" (which will be a long way) I plan to practice Canon. I think both of these are great! Here's my attempt. Sorry if I'm bad. That's just a little piece I learned. I could've played faster but the gadget keeps on cutting off right when I press on another key note. So I had to do it slowly. I'm improving :)
Here's my attempt of a piece from "Canon".

미역국 (Korean Seaweed Soup)

I made it! BUT...It was a failure. I'm not sure how 미역국(miyeokguk) taste like but mine was okay. I just forgot to follow some steps because I made it without looking at the recipe. So after I made it, I looked the recipe online and I realized that I skipped some steps. XD Anyways, 미역국 pronounced as 'miyukgook' is a healthy food because it's a highly nutritious soup made with nutritious ingredients such as garlic, ginger(my option), Korean seaweed(nori), soy sauce, sesame oil, and stock soup. The stock soup can be beef, chicken, vegetables, or seafood. Very healthy right! Koreans eat this on the day of their birth (birthday) and pregnant women eat/drink this to regain health after given birth. Well it's not my birthday and I'm not pregnant or anything as I said in my previous post on 'Sushi'. Search it up! You'll find more information about it's health benefits.
Here the picture to my miyeokguk. XD
[I put too much sesame oil+garlic oil :/ but it still taste good to me.]


My vacation ends after today. That's right! I'm going back to school (college). I haven't take my driving test yet, because I planned to take it either on February or March. How am I going to go to school? I'm not taking the bus or having someone drive and pick me up. I don't like to take the bus because too much switching to do. I also don't like to wait for someone to pick me up (waiting takes too long). In addition, my resolution was to become more independent. I don't want to depend too much on transportation. So how will I go to school (9 miles to get there)? Well, I'm certainly not going to walk since waiting for my ride would also take half the same time but shorter. I'm going to have to ride a bicycle. The other day, I bought myself a bike, a bag, shoes, and some clothes. Not much. I liked my new bike, but the only thing I don't like it the shiny color. I'm worried someone might jack my bike while I'm in class because it looked too new. One problem I still need to fix is the front wheel. I need to buy a new pump since the previous pump I had didn't work anymore. The front wheel is kind of soft so I had to pump it up to tighten it. I won't show my new bike because I'm worried it'll get jacked. LOL I'm thinking of painting it over with black so that it doesn't look new. ㅋㅋㅋ

This is the bag I bought. Looks cool and average for a person like me. It's a shoulder bag.

This is the shoe I bought. I have to say that I like to wear shoes with patterns like these.

And here is the helmet I bought for my bike. Honestly, I don't like it, but I bought it anyways because the rest of the helmets I saw at the store where I went was mostly for kids and the adults' helmets were just too shiny and/or weird.

Sushi (my style)

Recently, I just made sushi by myself. I think this was my first time ever to make sushi. It turned out pretty good, because I've been watching people make sushi a lot so I guess I learned from watching. I didn't have enough ingredients so I used pork instead. It wasn't that great, just good. By the way, sorry I couldn't share it cause while typing here, I already ate it until now. I didn't notice that it's all gone. But anyways, here's the photo of the first roll that I made. It's not creative so it's plain boring, I know ;)

hehe sorry about the bad quality photo...I still haven't got my camera back yet so I used my cellphone camera which is only 2 megapixel :(

My favorite is 김밥 (Korean style sushi). If only I had the ingredients, it would've turned out super awesome! I guess I'll have to look for the ingredients at the market so that I can make kimbap (for myself ag
ain). Anyways, I have a lot of nori, so Im planning to make some 미역국. By the way, there's no occasion or reason why I'm making seaweed soup. I just feel creative by cooking today. Don't worry, no one's pregnant and no one's birthday is today that I know of. XD So if you feel bored, just go to the kitchen and be creative. Create a dish of your own or a dish you've been wanting to make. It's fun to learn something! Good luck!

College (대학교) T_T

Obsession over! hahaha...

I have another week and a half of vacation left. I know I always dread about going to school (probably the same to you too). Now I want to go back to school. There's really nothing to do at home and 추워요. It's cold outside, so I don't want to go out. Actually, I want to go out, but then there's nothing to do alone. So I'm staying home because 정말 따뜻해요. 추우시죠? Are you cold? I hope you stay warm. 따뜻한 커피마시고 싶어요. But I'm too lazy to make coffee.

아ㅏㅏ...내가 학교보고싶어요! 내가 학교에 가고 싶어요... TㄷT

피곤해요... =_=

모두 잘가요...

Okay I know once in awhile, everyone will have an obsession, don't deny it. :) Currently I have an obsession (more like addiction) over a kpop song. Actually, this happens once I here something I like. Has anyone heard of the Korean group Co-Ed? Well if you have, this song called "Bbiribbom Bberibbom" is what I'm talking about. Honestly, I don't like to listen to a lot of kpop music because they are so addictive I tried not to. This song was stuck in my head everyday because of the phrase "bbiribbom bberibbom" which is the Korean version of the sound of a heart beat or more like "thump thump". The most part I like about the song is the beginning, when the girl in the blonde hair who wore yellow sing then followed by the guy in the turquoise outfit. I really like that part because it sounded soft and cute! (Sorry I don't know their names) XD Then next is the hop/shaking dance. First thought of it as annoying but later it gets addictive. I know they copied this dance from Lady Gaga's Telephone.

Next up is F.CUZ's song "Wannabe Your Love" I have to admit that their love/seducing dances were adorable. Although I'm not a fan of F.CUZ or any other Kpop groups, I like Jinon from this group. He looks adorable as a rapper. :D (Hint: I like hip hop). That probably explains why I like him. (I just feel that he's...umm unique?) Now, I know there are inappropriate English words on their outfit, but I still think it's colorful and besides their song is great. :)
