This happened. This is true.
Five, six or even a dozen is enough and then I will start my diet.
Chocolate cookie request!
AHH, thank you everyone for the overwhelming response on the Ramen gif! Glad you guys liked it. The amount of likes are insane! Thank you very much.
I will continue to make more. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to send a message!
It may suit me to bake cookies this week. Stuff I’m thinking about:
1. I didn’t get an interview for EPIK. It doesn’t suit me to wonder why much. I know I was overqualified for the job and that I would have hit out of the park, and the rejection doesn’t change that. It does make me a little sad, but I will continue to apply to other jobs in both Korea and in the US. Looking for the window that was opened when the door closed.
2. Finishing my final paper, studying for my comprehensive exam, finishing and editing my novel (which is my thesis.)
3. Summer is coming, and I hope that I can spend it hiking around my parents’ house and studying for the GRE. (coming to get that phd.)
4. Cookies, now.
Do you guys know how excited I am about Red Flag.
DO YOU KNOW, THOUGH?!
DO I NEED TO LIST THE REASONS?! IMMA LIST THE REASONS AND I’M NOT EVEN GOING TO PUT THEM UNDER A “READ MORE” I AM THAT EXCITED.
- CHING. MOTHERFUCKING. SHIH. HISTORICALLY ACKNOWLEGED AS THE BEST PIRATE OF ALL TIME.
I am also hype as fuck about this. The ten seconds the Ching Shih-like character was on screen were the best ten seconds of the entire Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy for me (which is just to say that Ching Shih as character is enough for me nevermind how great it would be if the series sticks to history)
That said, it will be interesting (possibly dispiriting?) to see how much the show does deviate from history. Already I can see that they will have her sleeping with a Portuguese bounty hunter (who is being reported on as a male lead). Did that really happen? I don’t know. Is there enough historical record of her to say categorically that it did not? Will they have her eventually marry her adoptive son? Will the character stick to her real life context enough where that would even seem possible or will the writers/network feel it more important to alter her character towards more of a Western, contemporary moral make up? (he was one of her commanders and helped her retain her authority after her husband died.)
It will be interesting to see. Regardless, this looks like a giant step forward for Asians in media, and though “looks like” is operative in that statement, I’m so excited about the concept of the show and Maggie Q being involved that it makes me want to roll around on the carpet and sing. Even if it doesn’t stick to history, what a story and I look forward to gobbling it up.
(also, I hope it actually materializes. Looks good right now but shit happens…)
One phase of my life is ending, a new one is beginning.
Know what that means? New friends. Wonder who I’ll meet and what awkward ways we will find to insinuate ourselves into each other’s lives. I hope the slide-over-by-means-of-cane method is acceptable. See how she is pleasantly affronted but doesn’t run away.
