This I Love Thursday!

I have been taking part in this for the past several weeks on Gala's site, but I always felt a bit weird expanding it. Now, I can post as much as I want. This week, she assigned homework. Not just a regular "TILT" post, but an alphabetical one. So, here it is!

♥ A is for...Aoife Fae! This is the new name I want. Seriously, I want to change my name. This morning, I found out what I want to change it to. I looked for a site that had baby names and meanings. Aoife(pronounced EE-fe) means Beautiful/Radient. Fae means fairy. This is the closest name I have ever encountered that I feel is me! I'm excited and I am going to try it on!

♥ B is for...BELTS! I always see such nice outfits and really cute belts on people I see on campus or just walking around. This is the first I have actually seen that I fell in love with. I typically don't find much stuff at Forever 21 that I like. The website almost seems as messy as their store (I may have just had a bad experiance at the particular store I went to, but there were huge piles of clothing that didnt seem to be folded and at the racks, many of the hangers were just thrown onto the racks and trying to take down one item to look at it seems impossible).

♥ C is for...Chocolate. Really, who doesn't love chocolate? Everything about it is amazing. There are also so many different kinds of chocolate that there is something for everybody (personally, I enjoy dark chocolate, but I won't turn any of that away...I guess that is why I needed to start lifting...^_^)

♥ D is for...Dwight K. Schrute. The Office is such a funny show, and Dwight probably my favorite character. I know he is supposed to be the jerk, but he does it in such a funny way...usually while shoving food in his mouth.

♥ E is for...Eating. Food tastes so yummy, and it gives us the energy to live. Because we have this energy, we can do things and not be dome boring, cranky person.

♥ F is for...Forgetting lyrics. This may sound terrible of me, and I realize that. However, it is one of the most obvious indicator of whether or not a singer lip syncs or actually sings. Ayumi Hamasaki, one of my favorite J-pop singers, is ever. She is so cute when she forgets her lyrics (and her audience still loves her). She even shouts an apology at the end of the video. There is another video of her at a New Years count down a few years ago, and she forgets the lyrics for quite a long time, and just goes with it. The audience kept on singing and dancing and just had fun with everything!

♥ G is for...Google. I love being able to put in a ridiculous "how to..." question, and then getting so many hits. Not only hits in general, but accurate hits! I also like how it doesn't have all the annoying junk on the front page (see yahoo).

♥ H is for...Hats! I have had this hat since high school. It is missing a charm (it was a star), but I still love it! It's teal! It's soft (It is made of suede)! It's SUPER CUTE! If ever there was a "signature item" in my ward robe, it would be this little number!

♥ I is for...iPhone! They are so convenient. It's like a micro computer! Apple is so innovative and awesome! I would never want another phone in the world...except maybe a newer iPhone a few years down the road!

♥ J is for...Japan! I love more Japanese singers than American singers, I would rather watch a movie with Hiroki Narimiya (Nana (see N)) than Owen Wilson. The language is mysterious, beautiful, sexy, and awesome! I know so many nice people from Japan, and everything about the people, the language, the culture, and the pop-culture is so amazing and awesome!

♥ K is for...Kariza Wraps. I first found this little treasure when I went to Miami (yay cruise!). They are over priced for what they are if you go to one of the stands. I found them in many other shops in Key West, however the quality was terrible. Trying to find a color combination that I actually liked made this quest much more difficult. I ended up buying a few because even if the quality sucks, I would be able to still be able to use it as a pattern. They are simple in design and one wrap can be worn is so many different ways.

♥ L is for...Love! My boyfriend of 2.5 years. He is so sweet and puts up with so much of my crap. How can I not love him??? He got some of my technical stuff for this site to work properly. He is amazing, he's adorable (look at his picture!), and he's mine! He also smells REALLY nice!

♥ M is for...Molly. She is the best pup I know. She had to be put down a few weeks ago, and I am still coping with everything. She was 16.5 and very sick when she passed away. She stopped eating and even drink water. It was a very sad sight, but I love her. I will forever miss her. She was my little sister.

♥ N is for...Nana. I love this manga series so much! I cried so much at the end of it. It was also made into an anime (which I love!) and a movie (which I also love!!). The movie stars Mika Nakashima, an amazing j-pop singer with an air of "don't make me kick your ass"! She has an amazing voice and I love her style.

♥ O is for...Old English Sheepdogs! They are so cute, giant, fluffy, and playful!

♥ P is for...ParaKISS. From the same creator as Nana. I have drawn much inspiration from this anime. I even designed a piece of jewelry based on this show. AMAZING!!!!!

♥ Q is for...Quarters! I do my laundry at the facility provided by the leasing agency. Coin operated laundry is annoying, but I can clean all the clothing I want when I have a giant stack of quarters! They are more convenient than we realize!

♥ R is for...Roller coasters. I love going to amusement parks and riding all the rides I can, especially the ones my mom has dubbed "happy-go-pukey". My mom gets dizzy very easily from most rides...the result is the nickname.

♥ S is for...Sakura Trees. Possibly one of the beautiful things in existence.

♥ T is for...Tommy Shaw!!! I have been a Styx fan since I was 8. My parents took my brother and I all the way out to Albuquerque, New Mexico (we live in Pittsburgh, PA) back in 1997 for our fist concert ever. It was amazing. But above all, I have been a huge fan of Tommy. During another concert(when I was still small enough to be picked up by my dad) I had Glen tickle my palm with his guitar pick, and I was still screaming Tommy's name. That's dedication! In retrospect, I wish I did give Glen a bit more credit...

♥ U is for...University. I like being at my school because there are so many people I met here. On top of the fact that it is assisting me in my future, it is a place that I can call home. I know all the short cuts to get to class, and all the side routes to take when its winter and I don't feel like walking outside a lot. It is also where I met a number of my good friends.

♥ V is for...Vanilla, an amazing song by J-Rocker Gackt. This video is particularly amusing to be because he violates a band member on stage for most of the song. Hello fan service! You can tell that they don't lip sync because when Masa (the guy who gets violated) is being violated, you can hear that he stops playing. I respect Gackt all the more for that.

♥ W is for...W. The cutest j-pop duo in existence...hands down!

♥ X is for...X-rated movies...especially when they have plots! It is HILARIOUS!!!

♥ Y is for...Youtube. Really, there are so many different videos. It is kind of frustrating when you are weeding through fan tribute videos just so you can find the original, but some of those fans have talent.

♥ Z is for...Zoo! I love going to the zoo. I love animals, and getting to spend the day going from one exhibit to the next is so much fun.

Ok, that took a TON of effort and a few hours!!! I'm terrible at making REALLY long lists. When you put a length requirement on it, that makes it so much harder...geez!

Love to all!!!

  1. I love this list :D I was going to create an A-Z too, but you're so right.. it is MEGA time consuming!

  2. I didn't realize I got a comment until today! I'm so sorry that I didn't check sooner. It is time consuming, but very entertaining. You think of something you want to put in, but that letter was already taken. Now you need to find a more creative way to incorporate it. It is so much fun and I recommend it to everybody!
