Bootlegs, bootlegs

I bought some Kamen Rider Ryuki toys from eBay the other week. They were super cheap, and from Hong Kong. You know what that means: cheap knockoffs! I pretty much figured so; there’s no way you could get the official Bandai stuff for so cheap. Anyways, they’re actually really poorly done knockoffs (the worse kind), so I might just throw them away or something.

That’s OK though, it was expected. HOWEVER, the unexpected (and most hilarious) part of this eBay purchase was actually the seller’s name. I didn’t know it until the package arrived, but check out this guy’s name! Hahaha! And you thought you got picked on in school.

Keeping Up Tradition

No comments

The IUSTV End-of-Year Banquet is tonight. The last time I had a similar event was the Sayonara Party back in Tokyo for IES. And much like that time, I’m running on very little sleep and making a video for the event, while at the same time doing a bit of school work here and there. I don’t know if this is just coincidence or what, but this seems to be my trend whenever there’s a big event or something similar. I guess it makes sense, adding on extra responsibility (usually self-imposed) for a big event like a banquet. I still remember high school graduation when I went for like two days without sleep, staying in Donnelly’s lab with the rest of the crew making that video. The Project Graduation video (took me a minute to remember the name).

Let’s just sum my last few hours up: I woke up yesterday at around 6:30AM after falling asleep on the futon watching Ryuki the night before. Tried going back to sleep, but that was unsuccessful until around 8:30AM. Woke up at 11 to go to the office and finish my homework for M343. Got out of that class at 2:15PM, went to grab some lunch at Wendy’s (don’t get me started on the inefficient retard army they have staffed there during the day), then came back to the office. Started off interviewing 2 candidates for the Tech Director position, then started doing video stuff. I’ve been out of the office twice since then (right now it’s 6:30AM of the next day): once to get dinner at Chili’s, and once to go home for a half hour.

Staying up late all these times to prepare for a banquet, graduation, etc, always seems so tiring while I’m actually doing it. But once it’s done and over with, I’m usually happy with my results. I guess in some way this is fun for me, haha. Don’t want to sound like I’m complaining or anything. Video stuff like this was always (and I guess it still is) a “hobby” or mine, although it seems to take over my entire life at times. I think I ‘m not making as much sense as I should be with this post; I’m starting to actually feel tired. I guess I’ll go write my R100 paper, and finish up stuff. Who knows which classes I’m going to go to today. I need 2 of them for possible review sessions, and the last one I really should just skip.

Temperament Sorter

No comments

OK so I’m really really bored, before I go to sleep and then waking up to do a lot of work (and 2 presentations in a day for classes). But to waste time, I took this “Temperament Sorter II Personality Instrument.” Here’s what it says I am…

Your Temperament is Guardian
Free report for: Anthony Leong

Guardians, are the cornerstone of society, for they are the temperament given to serving and preserving our most important social institutions. Guardians have natural talent in managing goods and services–from supervision to maintenance and supply–and they use all their skills to keep things running smoothly in their families, communities, schools, churches, hospitals, and businesses.

Guardians can have a lot of fun with their friends, but they are quite serious about their duties and responsibilities. Guardians take pride in being dependable and trustworthy; if there’s a job to be done, they can be counted on to put their shoulder to the wheel. Guardians also believe in law and order, and sometimes worry that respect for authority, even a fundamental sense of right and wrong, is being lost. Perhaps this is why Guardians honor customs and traditions so strongly–they are familiar patterns that help bring stability to our modern, fast-paced world.

Practical and down-to-earth, Guardians believe in following the rules and cooperating with others. They are not very comfortable winging it or blazing new trails; working steadily within the system is the Guardian way, for in the long run loyalty, discipline, and teamwork get the job done right. Guardians are meticulous about schedules and have a sharp eye for proper procedures. They are cautious about change, even though they know that change can be healthy for an institution. Better to go slowly, they say, and look before you leap.

Guardians make up as much as 40 to 45 percent of the population.

Hmm…that seems fairly accurate of me. That’s kind of creepy actually. I only answered like 70 questions. Anyways, at least the result didn’t say anything like “You are a jackass.” Oh, and Nick is online and he took the test also. His answers are here.

Well, it’s a little past 5AM, and I’m still at the office. I got here at 7:30 last night, with an hour break where I had to go to the library to meet with my Z302 group (some break, huh). Soooooo the ice cream episode of Rate Your Plate is done, and looks great. I’m exporting another show, then I’m gonna go home and pass out until a meeting I have at noon. I think the thunderstorms are almost over, so I won’t get soaked on my way to the parking lot. I figure it’s done raining cause the birds are chirping (that’s scary).

It’s not all bad though, since one of the greatest sitcoms ever, Mama’s Family, is on TV right now, and I’m watching it as this stuff exports. I might just have to buy cable next year at my apartment…

The home stretch?

I’ve noticed that when I’m not busy, I don’t post on here as much. I guess the constant sleeping and watching TV doesn’t require the distraction that I usually use this Blog for (when I’m supposed to be doing homework). This last week was one of the most relaxing/least busy this semester, so it was nice. It’s now the very beginning of the second-to-last week of classes. Two more weeks of this (only 8 days of classes), then some finals, and the year is over. I’m pretty happy about that. I have a few projects and such to finish up this week and stuff, but I’m not anticipating any of them to be too tough. Then finals, which shouldn’t be bad, and that’s all.

I still haven’t figured out what I’m doing this summer. Hopefully I’ll know that before the end of the month. My main two options are that FDA international internship, and then 1 other G-14 Classified mission. Lets see if either of those pull through. I think I can also get a few other internships, if I can get class credit. I’m not in the telecom school or anything, but maybe the B-school will help me pull some of these TV/media-related internships. TokyoPop translates Japanese comics for the US and they have an internship program I could probably get into fairly easily. Still, Japan would be my top choice. I dunno, I just want to get back there, even though realistically I will probably be working there in about a year.

I got bored last night and did this. Wow I’m a dork, haha:

Now off to the laundry mat to clean 2 weeks of clothes, then the office the work on the ice cream episode of Rate Your Plate.
