Lovely Christmas Day

Winter days are so lovely... I've always preferred summer because that's when my birthday is, but winter brings out a soft sort of nostalgia in me that summer can't quite replace.

Other times, (especially during the fall/November phase) whimsical notions are just so depressing... I think about how testing and school never seems to end, how I haven't seen my brother in such a long time, how I might not get a scholarship to my ideal school... I think about how pathetic I may seem in comparison to the real "superstars" who is able to achieve everything and nourish their talents and hobbies...

But during the winter, I finish up my work very easily and I go back to dreaming. Sometimes, it's as if he's never gone... And my Chinese family and friends are so 热闹,so happy in a way I can't even quite describe in English... It makes me so happy too.

Banana-Mango Pudding!

I put my own spin to the original Hong Kong dessert~
^After boiling milk and water, I stirred in the mango gelatin powder and added smushed bananas. Then I put it in a bowl to cool.
^After leaving the bowl in the fridge for a few hours, I took it out and added a spoonful of evaporated milk to sweeten it.
^This is the end result! Added some sliced bananas and put it in my bento box. Cute, no?

Mushroom Earrings

I'm like Inception, I play with your brain
So don't sleep or snooze...
-On the Floor, J-Lo (feat. Pitbull)

^My eight year-old cousin got those for me~

NHS Babysitting Volunteer

^Peggy, Ziyi, and me. Us Chinese peeps YUHH. That's my didi right there^^

^Dressing my little brother as an elf! Sw can laugh all he wants, I finally have a Chinese younger brother now, a didi~

NHS Parent's Night Out was a great success, to my delight! Definitely not a waste of time; there was plenty to do, and I had a lot of fun with the kids.

A Letter to My Mom

I'm the writer who lost his purpose
The end of this novel, how am I supposed to write it?
-Fiction, B2ST

I feel so sad and contemplative lately... Maybe it's stress or maybe there's a deeper reason. Well, whatever the reason, I'm going to deal with this my own way. I got my priorities all mixed up last year, and that was why I messed up a lot of things on my agenda. Never again. My life is fixed and almost perfect now, I don't want any more trouble.

At school, I try not to sulk because I don't want to bring my friends down and arouse suspicions, but at home, all I ever want to do is just lay on the bed and read and sleep. Of course, thank goodness SAT prevents me from doing so: I study instead, and that's definitely more helpful.

Even still, I'm so glad my family isn't really home to see this... I don't want them to see me like this. My dad will be back soon though, and my mom as well, so... I better straighten myself up.

Happy Thanksgiving!

My dad is coming back for Thanksgiving! Yay~~

America's Recycle Day

Everyone tells me that I can't do
What you do
Don't make me laugh
I do what I want...
-Huh, 4minute
A fun Eco-Club activity where we encourage recycling and reusing old materials around Valley Ranch! Passed out flyers, helped discard paper properly, took in batteries to prevent toxic poisoning, etc. It lasted the entire morning and then we ate pizza afterwards.
Fun day!

When Describing Life

I've had foolish fancies that turn into dreaming,
but never believed a dream could be like this:
I am fair, fair, immaculate,
the room pure, pure perfection,
with the lovely silk cushions,
and the joy-of-love quilts,
and these elegant footsteps were so unhurried,
these whispered words most enchanting.
What I described didn't seem to happen rapidly,
but then, strangely, became only temporary,
and I woke to nothingness,
suddenly aware that all is
an empty illusion...

[Erin Wei, inspired by Buddhist texts.]

YH: "It's so cold in Qingdao right now... I don't know how it is in Dallas, but be careful not to catch a cold. Dress warmly, and don't make me come ten thousand miles to check!"
Me: "Don't be silly!! It's as warm as Mexico down here! Why don't you get out of Russia and come ten thousand miles to party in paradise instead!"

Hehe, oh what a wonderful brother~ Is he still my gege? Maybe not, hmm? I don't know, I don't care!!

Typical Drama

B tried to kiss me in Physics today - in front of everyone. That was kind of really weird and awkward... Well first, I'm impressed with his audacity but I don't appreciate the attention. Just like how I'm flattered that he thinks I'm attractive but I don't reciprocate his feelings.

Sw, one of my close Korean friends, later told me that he asked B why he tried to kiss me. B's reaction was apparently something like this:

"Uh... I don't know. Instinct?"

Huh. At first, I was just a little annoyed at his persistance especially because I wasn't encouraging him at all, but B kept talking to me and then he said some things about my best friend that really really REALLY made me kind of furious. I was going to reject him anyway, but the things he said just convinced me even more that I was right.

See, the thing is: I don't want any drama in my life. I'm a very practical, independent person, and I prefer to not have anybody relying on me too much for his/her happiness. It makes me a little uneasy.

Another thing is the fact that I could never get into another high school relationship again. I don't want to be dragged down, and I can't get rid of that other feeling... you know... but oh...

It's so funny how Yuhao and I have all of the same books on our shelves... I have Wuthering Heights, Count of Monte Cristo, A Tale of Two Cities, Phantom of the Opera, and Crime and Punishment on my shelf. He has the same - in Chinese.

Then he has 《西游记》 and 《红楼梦》. Well, maybe it's not so much of a surprise that I have these books too, seeing as they're two of the four great classics, but I happen to have Journey to the West in English translation as well as Chinese as well!

I've never known any other person who likes the same classics I do, let alone someone close to my age. I mean, he's only 19 years-old. So I was really amazed.

Me: "We're probably going to marry each other when we grow up."
YH: "I think so too."
Me: "I feel bad for you. You're going to be stuck with me forever."
YH: "That's alright... It could be worse."
Me: "How?"
YH: "I could be stuck with someone who isn't you."

That really made me brighten up. It sounds like a line from a classic novel, something I would love to read^^

A Rock in the Stream...


A constant presence in a fast-moving life. That's what I am to Yuhao, apparently.

Do you believe in an "en"? He said that's a karmic bond that lasts an entire lifetime... It doesn't matter if you believe you'll never meet a person again; something ties you together so you'll always come back.

Maybe it's not real... but the way he talks makes me want to believe it's real.

I place so much faith on science in the natural world around us that I could never possibly be a real Buddhist in and out, but sometimes I really wish I am more than just a human and more like an Enlightened entity. I would make things happen on their own, rather than depending on circumstances and fate. Wouldn't that be nice?

哦,命运…… 在这世界上,在这生命里,我代表什么呢?

Fall Concert

As a senior, I feel like every event is going to be my last... And it's true. I will never have a fall concert again. So I'm just glad I had a good time!!
^With Megan, my Chinese sister!
^With Ania, my Polish sister!
^With Karla, my black sister!
^The seniors!

I wanna rock...
-Bang Bang Bang, U-Kiss
It was pretty fun!! Too loud, too much dancing, but being around friends was nice at least^^ I'm only a little disconcerted at the fact that people believe my "date" and I are going out. That's definitely not true; I only agreed to go with B because the tickets are cheaper if you buy them as a couple.
But here's a nice picture.
I definitely want to try this again some time! Prom, maybe? Last and first homecoming ever~~

Pumpkin Dash + Homecoming Decorations

NHS/Eco-Club volunteer activity where we pass out water bottles to runners in the marathon and cheer them on!
And, of course, we get free breakfast.
^Me, Alex, Ellie.
Afterwards, we went on to decorate the hallways at school for homecoming. Our theme this year is Candyland; my friend designed the entire mural, which takes up a huge portion of the wall. It was really impressive.
And it made me feel pathetic, especially since I was only able to paint in the mushrooms and candy canes. Well... what can I say? I'm not an artist.

Dongbei Dinner

It's okay if you're not too tall, like Napoleon
Like a bad boy who'll take over the world, don't hide like a coward
That's right, the one I need is a black knight...
-Pretty Boy, 2NE1

^Me, Lynn, Helena, and Sherry.

Las chicas chinas fueron al restaurante a comer anoche~ Oh, los echo de menos^^

On another note... WHY DO I ALWAYS LOOK SO STUBBY, FAT, AND SHORT NEXT TO MY CHINESE AMIGAS. It annoys the crap out of me. -_- They're too thin and pretty.

Monday, August 15, 2011


Hehe, I finally got the courage to email Yuhao-gege.

He's my coworker back in Qingdao, the only other teacher assistant besides me there, and he does the theater/drama department.

All of my other coworkers (who are all girls) think that he's super attractive. Which... is kind of weird for me to think so, because he's my best friend in China and always acts like an older brother, but they think that we're like a couple since he always takes me out to karaoke or dinner or mountain-climbing after a long day of work.

But anyhow, despite all the time we spent together for those two months or so, I can't seem to be casual when it comes to the little things. Like taking pictures together, or sharing contact information, or... BLEH whatever.

It frustrates me because he really is my best friend and understands me the most, but I have a hard time staying around him since I'm so shy.

I've emailed Eueu (the English teacher I was assisting), Zeny, and even chatted with Yongqiang-gege (the guy who rides the bus with me every morning so I won't get lost)... but not Yuhao-gege.

Eueu told me that Yuhao-gege seems a little more lonely at the school without me, more quiet anyway. He probably misses having somebody his age to talk to.

That was the push I needed to gather the courage to finally email him. I mean, I had his email and everything, I was just too apprehensive of how our friendship might change overseas...

But I'm relieved to find that it's just the same. We still crack jokes about the principal, debate about the government (he's so commie!), and discuss our favorite literature classics - not to mention complain about our lives, which happens to be my favorite hobby of all. And I love it when he talks about Buddhism too, it always inspires me artistically and creatively.

I'm getting a QQ so that I can chat with him now... It's currently installing. Whee~!

Lesson learned: Cowardice can ruin so many opportunities. If there is little to no risk, take the damn chance!!

Wednesday, July 27, 2011


I'm back from Qingdao. Everything feels a little different; I'm a little tired, miss the good seafood and comfortable weather and friendly people.
But I guess home is still the best place to be.

Birthday Gifts!

^An old friend of mine sent me these cute Forever 21 hair clips!

^My best friend sent me a cute compilation of assorted goods: Cucumber/Melon nail polish, gel pens, a mechanical pencil, an eraser, and a birthday card^^

Another friend sent me a huge box of Hello Panda chocolate snacks, my brother bought me an USB device, my father bought me a new laptop (*squeal*), and my mom bought me a $60 jacket. My neighbor also bought me three musical films that I had really wanted to see earlier, so I was touched.

Overall, it's a pretty good haul. I don't expect much as I grow older, but I really appreciate the effort! Thanks, guys!

Happy Birthday

To me.

I am now 17 years-old, which is a terrible change from the delightful number of 16.
15 and 16 were nice. But now that I'm turning 17, I feel... so old. I never thought this day would come - I never imagined that I'd be able to live up to this age. Haha, I always imagined some tragic car accident would occur or something while I'm some crazy teenager. But now it's here, and I've managed to survive.

Went to volunteer in the morning, then hung out with a couple of my friends at the mall for a middle school reunion. It was nice seeing everyone~ we really have changed a lot, I think. Except I still feel the same, so maybe not.

^Jane, Brian, me, and Min.

From Seattle to Vancouver to Victoria Island

Just got back last night! It was great. I've officially fallen in love with Vancouver...

Is it just my imagination or are Canadians friendlier than Americans? Wow. There was such a difference between the way people would speak to you from Vancouver to Seattle. I LOVE CANADIANS.

^A picture in Seattle, with my older brother.

^I shall miss this goofball when he goes to University of British Columbia and I'm stuck here in Texas.

^At an aquarium in Vancouver!

^Victoria Island's famous Chinatown!

Graduation Party

The feelings I held onto, even if they're not love
I'll reach out for you as you swiftly fall...
The starry sky you gazed up at is pouring down...
-Starry Heavens, Kimeru

Haha, yeah, so there was a real surprise yesterday!

I was kidnapped and whisked away to my dhost's graduation/birthday party.

At about six o'clock, I was on my bed, studying for a driving permit. My dhost, whom I shall refer to as "G," rang the doorbell and shocked my parents nearly to death. I almost had a heart attack too. The scenario could've been something like this:

"Hi, Erin's mom! I'm here to kidnap your daughter. Don't worry; I'll return her in a couple of hours. My mother will drive us... Bye!"

So I was wearing my lounge clothes and was completely unprepared when all of this happened. Even though I would've appreciated at least a hint or a warning of some sort beforehand, it was really nice too. I had never been kidnapped by a friend before, and it's a good experience!

I felt really bad though, because I had nothing at all prepared... no gifts, no cards, nothing. But I'm going to make up for it! I prepared a thoughtful little gift, but I'm a little worried now that G might not like it... Now to think of it, it looks really girly. I just wanted to get him a casual little sketchbook because he's a wonderful artist and I believe he has some real potential!

Sushi With My Favorite Dhost

Nice guys finish last
That's why I'll treat you like trash
It's not what I really want to do...
-Nice Guys, Chester See (feat. Nigahiga and Kevjumba)

My favorite senior dhost rode his bike over to my house today! I have to admit, I was really surprised at his endurance... especially since we walked over to the restaurant Yummi Sushi right afterwards.

^Both of us really hot and sweaty after the walk... -_- Texas heat. Also, I'm terrible at taking this type of picture - I always cut off my own face!

I had a really nice time, teaching him how to eat sushi (which he failed at, haha) and talking about our summer plans. Afterwards, we walked around the neighborhood - again! - and he mostly talked about music and I mostly listened.

Overall, it was a very relaxing day and I'm glad I had that opportunity to catch up. This dhost is more interesting and vivid than a lot of other people, and I will miss him next year.

Brother's Graduation

Always knowing we're gonna be fine
Feeling great, feeling alive
Never coming down from this mountain we're on...
-On the Ride, Aly & A.J

I had to do some NHS volunteering, and conveniently enough, it was for the 2011 graduating class which my brother happened to be in... So I got to complete my hours while watching him graduate.

It was pretty happy and sad, I guess. On one hand, I finally get the bathroom all to myself, but on the other hand... no more rides to school. And even though I won't have him pestering me anymore, I won't have him talking to me anymore either. That's kind of a bummer... I'll really miss my older brother, who, although is not my ideal figure of a perfect brother, is still one of the best people I know in this world.

^Ellie and me~

^I look so short next to Min... -_- Well, this wasn't a clear picture anyway...

^Min's little brother distracted us mid-pose... LOL, I love how it turned out! We look so idiotic... haha^^

^My mom, my brother, and me... I really am proud of him. Truly. Even though I complain about him being a "shame" to this Chinese family since he doesn't always make straight A's... Even though I claim he's "adopted from Thailand" since he's so friggin' dark...

I will miss this loser. But for now, I have the whole summer with him.

Last Day of School!

No such thing as you lost it all
God knows even angels fall...
-Even Angels Fall, Jessica Riddle

It is my last day as an official junior... *sniff sniff* Wow, time passed by so quickly! And I'm certainly glad it did, haha~ I can't wait to just grow up! But at the same time, I get all nostalgic when I think about leaving the classmates and friends I grew up with during high school... I'll be a senior next year, and that's pretty awesome to take in.

^Polaroid pictures of Ania, me, and Annie!

^Annie and me~

^Me and Ania~

I will miss these crazy burls T_T But I know I'll see them over the summer, so not really, I guess... haha.

Picnic at Grapevine Lake

Everybody, everybody wants to love
Everybody, everybody wants to be loved...
-Everybody, Ingrid Michaelson

First things first: I cut off a LOT of my hair! Eek! I just put it in a ponytail and then cut it all off myself... Of course, it came out unevenly, but who cares! School's almost over, summer's almost here!

^14 inches of hair cut off and donated to Pantene Beautiful Lengths program!

^I decided to make hua juan-er for our picnic today. The ones with the green stuff are salty onion ones, and the ones with the brown stuff are peanut butter-brown sugar combo types.

^My brother and I~
^My dad and I~
^I was walking along the trail near the lake, and I noticed how much trash there was... So I went back to the site to ask for a trash bag. Then I began picking up trash for about two hours, and managed to collect a completely full bag! It was surprisingly fun^^ and I'm helping the environment too. Lucky coincidence that I happened to be wearing my Ranchview Eco-club shirt too~ Haha.

Anyway, I am so utterly exhausted... I still have to finish my World Literature paper and study for English and History finals tomorrow T_T I have so much to deal with right now, but I've been feeling much more optimistic lately than I have been for the past two weeks. Before, I always felt so drained and hopeless, as if I had nothing to look forward to... But now I'm always active and getting out of bed quickly, looking forward to the day starting. Yay me!

Siena Pasta and Pizza + Estee Lauder

Let me be the one, the only one in the world
Let me be the one who cares
Let me be the one, it won't ever change
Even if I'm born again...
-Let Me Be The One, SS501

So our family went to Siena Pasta and Pizza place today, which is owned by Bruno's Ristorante... Most of the stuff on the menu seemed familiar (albeit more pizza-y), but we were all in the mood for pasta. It was pretty decent, and the prices were lower than at Bruno's!

^This was my meal. I ordered the Capellini Siena, which was some seriously good stuff. Angel hair pasta with fresh tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and capers in a garlic white wine sauce.

^Both of my parents ordered the same exact thing. They ordered Baby Clams, with white sauce over linguini.

And then we went to the mall to browse around... My dad needed to buy a suit, so I was stuck at Dillard's, bored out of my mind. I ended up going to the makeup section, despite being notoriously bad at that type of stuff.

Whatever. All I know is that when I go back to China, I want to look really pretty and glamorous, because all the Chinese girls over there are always stick-thin with a pretty face and perfect make-up.

Anyway... I'm going to the library in a few hours to study with my two favorite Koreans... That should be fun, I guess. Haha, okay, I'm getting off!

Yearbook Posts

So with you I will go
On ships over seas that I now know
No, they don't exist anymore...
-Time To Say Goodbye, Sarah Brightman

Wow... This year has gone by so quickly! Junior year was the most stressful, most eventful high school year EVER - so far. I thought freshman year was pretty exciting, but this one takes the cake.
I joined Eco-Club and Leo Club, was active in NHS, studied a lot more, got into National Merit Scholars, fell in love with my best friend, made tons of new friends, freaked out way too many times for major projects and tests, and almost failed Chemistry class.

BOOM. Destructive year. Seriously. It's been like a whirlwind.

Reading the notes from my closest friends really makes me feel nice about this year though...

"Yo~ The girl on the movie we watched in English class is hot, rite? I really don't have anything to do say... um... This year was fun when I had you as slave, and I looking forward to have you next year~ Don't forget! You are my slave next year~ I hope you don't get infected by any disease in China~ I feel sorry for elementary kids whom you will teach soon~ anyway have a nice one~ Bye~!! -Handsome Guy"

"Erin ___. I can't believe we've known each other for 6 years! :) We're finally going to be seniors hehe. I'm so glad that we have each other to confide in, you always support me and give me such great advice. We might be separated when we go to college but let's always stay in touch. You're like the sister I always wanted to have. Have fun in China, I love you gurl."

"Oh my burl. Dayum gurrl! It's been so freakin' long that I don't know what to write. The first thing that comes to mind is TAKE ME TO A CHINESE RESTAURANT!! YOU TIAO!!! WO YAO FAN! WO AI NI my LOVE. Heh. We'll see each other all the time anyways. Your summer better be amazing ._. Don't forget me. DUEI BU CHI~~~ HAHAHA I butchered that on purpose!!! Well... go have fun skipping now~ I'll hit on you some more later ;)"

I think my favorite note of all is the HUGEASS page-long note that my favorite dhost and senior left for me... He's going away for a while, so that's nice.

Waiting For The Light

As proof of my love,
I send to you the great aspects of life
And hope that you are happy with such a sacrifice
Because when you hurt like this,
I do too.
If you are happy,
Tears of joy will roll down my cheeks
The way a rainbow comes after the storm.
Even though
It is only just now
That I realize
What loneliness
[Written by Erin Wei. Inspired by F.I.R's song "等待黎明".]

Rainy Day

-打败, Energy

Yesterday was our last concert for Orchestra! Jeez, time passes by so quickly... it's a little depressing. But I sure as hell can't wait to get out of junior year! -_- Might update with some pictures later, if I look nice in them~

In the meantime, here is a little conversation between me and my best friend for some amusement... He was trying to get me to bribe him so that he'd be my lab partner in Chemistry, and the attempt was not very successful.

Him: "Wait! One more deal! I want you to text me everyday. I mean, LITERALLY EVERYDAY."
Me: "Haha, that's funny, oppa... The last thing I want to do is drive you insane."
Him: "Hehe, cute... You are already driving me insane because apparently I cannot even be mad at you for more than a week..."
Me: "Oh, that's okay. It's not you, it's me. Even my parents can't stay angry at me."
Him: "'It's not you, it's me..?' Wow, what a conceited girl!"

Logan's Roadhouse


Went out to try a steakhouse! I'm not so fond of heavy meats... but it was my dad's last day here for another long while, because he's going back to China for work. And he loves steak. So we ate there.

^This is my Onion Brewski Sirloin, with a side of mashed potatoes... Their signature 8-oz Sirloin Steak stacked on top of beer-braised onions, smothered with garlic butter and topped with crispy onions!

Aside from that... my brain is so crammed with random things that keep popping up... Hydrocarbons, Amitabha, conditional statement conjugations, role of society, USSR... GAHHH go away thoughts >:(

I have been working so much over the weekend... My head is about to explode with all this information. We got two huge-ass review packets for the Chemistry final (which looks super complicated, especially since I forgot most of the stuff from last semester), I've been researching my extended essay topic for Theory of Knowledge (parallelism between Greek Mythology and Buddhist gods), we have a Spanish oral final tomorrow, I need to organize my World Literature Paper I in a better way (it's the role of society in Chronicle of a Death Foretold and The Stranger), and I've been working on my History timeline for the League of Nations.

I really need a break - and no, I'm not talking about this ten-minute break right now... I feel so miserable and stressed right now T_T I need a good, long extended vacation once this is all over.

Thursday, May 19, 2011


Today was quite fun^^ Senior Awards Ceremony is actually a lot nicer when you're in the gym with the seniors and not stuck in Advisory classroom... I got to hang out with friends all day.

My oppa and former boyfriend shall just remain my best friend. I love having a best guy friend, because he will always be close to me... Well, I hope so anyway, but - really, who knows about the future?
I've been busy every single day this week, but in a good-busy way. It keeps me preoccupied about the stuff that matters, and I find that all my friends are going back to me, which is nice.

^Random squirrel on my mailbox... Hahaha.

I'm Such An Idiot

I hate myself so badly right now for hurting him...

If it's really meant to be and if he really loves me, then he should be able to forgive me though. Right? But still... now I can see clearly how much of an immature ninny I can be sometimes.

Why can't I just admit to the general public that we are going out, that we have been going out for a while? It's not that big of a deal, right?

But every time I see a bunch of faces turning my way and a bunch of gushing going on about how "cute" or "adorable" we are, I always feel this urge to just slink away and die somewhere private...

These are not the thoughts of a mature, capable girlfriend. I need to change - not just for him, but also for my own future happiness.

Tuesday, May 3, 2011


If I hurt you, then I hate myself
I don't wanna hate myself,
Don't wanna hurt you...
-Your Winter, Sister Hazel

Look, I went to T.J Max today, and bought a new bag!

^It'll be my new school tote! Great for projects and stuff~ I'm so glad I got it!

On the other hand... I pissed my boyfriend off today. A classmate of ours teased us about going to prom together, and I said, "I'd never go with that chimpanzee!"

Oh frick. I'm so immature and stupid for saying that... at least I can acknowledge it though. I know he's disappointed in me right now, and I wish I hadn't said it.

Monday, May 2, 2011


I'm stupid, I'm useless
I can't do anything right...
I'm difficult, hard to please

Bruno's Ristorante

Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
Oh, let's go back to the start...
-The Scientist, Coldplay

We went out to an Italian restaurant because it was my mom's friend's last day staying here in Texas... He's returning back to China. It was a good meal.

^The Grilled Portobello Mushroom appetizer! Served with Marsala wine sauce and sun dried tomatoes.

^Sunyun Shu-Shu's amazing Bruno's special! Veal, chicken, and shrimp sauteed in a Brandy mushroom cream sauce.

^My mother's Fettuccine Alfredo with Shrimp! Tossed in a Parmesan cream sauce.

Unfortunately, I didn't take a proper picture of my meal, which was also pretty darn amazing. Dang it! Oh well. I thought I took the picture, but when I came back home, I couldn't find the file...

Thursday, April 28, 2011


So, B (Korean guy) decided to tell me what he and my boyfriend were talking about during Spanish...
B: "You know what? I think that ____ would make a really good girlfriend... She's smart and good-looking enough, and she's really nice too."
BF: "Oh, really?"
B: "Yeah... You think I should ask her out?"
BF: " you really like her?"
B: "Well, sure!"
Later, B tells my boyfriend he was just kidding, and that I'm just a good friend.
He never realized until today that my boyfriend and I were in a relationship... Nice move, B.

You and I are black and white
I'm hot, you're cool
We're a mystery couple
-Black and White, G.NA

My boyfriend touched me on the neck yesterday. He had been complaining about a giant pimple growing on his neck.

Well, guess what? I discovered a pimple on my neck - almost in the same exact spot as his!!!

What. The. Hell.

The Best Message

没有你, 我会是谁?
-绝不能失去你, F4

This is the best message I have ever received. Trust me - any girl would be flattered to hear this... ;) Whether he is your best friend or something more, it doesn't matter. Sometimes, I think we just need to feel special...
