I'm going to start with the first book I've read this year: Deaf sentence by David Lodge

I heard about this book in a tv show here in Argentina where celebrities and famous people talk about their favourite books and authors. I thought the idea for the plot was really good but I was a bit disappointed with the end product.

Let me tell you why.Collapse )

Hello, guys! I don't really know what to do with this LJ.
I've completly lost the ability to make graphics which is why I basically created this lj.

I've been reading and watching reviews of books and I have actually been reading a lot more now that I finished college so I've decided that I would write reviews myself.
I wanted to do something of the sort because I'm not attending college this year (I'm just working at a private school) and I'm afraid that is going to be really difficult for me to get back into writing in English next year when I start my second career.

So, whatever I post here is basically me practising my writing skills and what better way to do it than by forcing myself to read more and gather my thoughts afterwards!

I know that not a lot of people actually follow this journal so I guess anyone would mind that I'm changing the focus of the journal. But if someone is actually following me still and wants to comment about my reviews, please go right ahead! I would be incredibly happy to see your thoughts about the books I'll be reading/have read and discuss them.

Untill the next post!

It was vsays' birthday on Friday and this is my gift to her. It's not much but at least it's something nice for the eyes :P
I was going to post this on Friday after work but my stupid internet connection didn't let me.

Some random Dubu loving ^^Collapse )
Well, this is all from me. I hope you had a wonderful day! Love ya!!

After vsays various comments about my lack of posting, I've decided to do an icon post. Nothing new, though. All these icons are entries for different contests and their variations, that I kept and never posted. Loads of different things, some good, some really bad. Enjoy!


So don"t call me no moreCollapse )

On Saturday, I went to the Obelisco (an important sight here in Argentina) because KPop fans organized a flashmob! It was amazing!!! Dreamstage Korea organized a contest with flahsmobs around the world and the country that wins gets the opportunity to have a Kpop concert there.
Unfortunately, there weren't so many people as in other countries (I checked videos from other countries and there were tons TONS of fans) but everyone was great and friendly. There were awesome flags and posters. To sum up, I had a great time! I bought four posters, not official posters but still, they're so cute! I'll be hanging them on my wall pretty soon.

Here are some pictures and videosCollapse )
On Monday, I went to the last McFly concert they did here in Argentina. I just can't believe it, it was amazing!!! I've never screamed, laughed and cried so much in on night in my life. It was absolutly perfect.

I need an Argentinian woman, so how about you?Collapse )
I know nobody would care about this but I needed to write this down to come back to it from time to time :P
Agh I was planning to be more active this year, I started posting more often, making more icons, I even started entering contests again. And then this horrible thing called college arrived. Agh I hate not having time to relax. I should be spazzing over Beast's comeback and reading about how to write academic essays ¬¬

No matter how tired, stressed or busy I am, it's not possible for me not to fangirl over this

HOW FREAKING AWESOME IS THE UNPLUGGED VERSION OF LIGHTLESS?! I wasn't expecting that at all! I think I listen to it twenty times already. Everybody's vocals along with the beautiful guitar melody make this song the most amazing song ever. I loved the other version too but this one left me breathless. Boys, I'm so proud of you. I couldn't listen to the rest of the album more than once so I haven't made up my mind about the whole thing ye. What I did do was to check the translations (thanks to the amazing people over at B2strising) while I listen to them, and even though it's a pretty emo album, I think the lyrics are really beautiful and well written.
JASON YOUR RAPS ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FLAWLESS THING MY EARS HAVE THE PRIVILIGE TO LISTEN TO. Really. He's the first rapper that I actually enjoyed, so I'm always biased as regards Beast's raps, but really, fangirling aside, the raps are amazing in this album, especially on "On Rainy Days"

When it's the type of day that you really liked
I keep opening the raw memories of you
Making the excuse that it's all memories, I take a step forward
I don't even make the effort to escape
What can I do about something that already ended?
I'm just regretting after like the stupid fool I am
Rain always falls so it will repeat again
When it stops, that's when I will stop as wel

Again, beautiful guitar melody. Can you see the trend here? :P I'm a sucker for songs with heavy acoustic guitar melodies like these.

I was planning to make a Beast fangirl post like the one I did for Big Bang but I don't have time right now. Maybe in a few weeks.

Can you believe that I was without electric energy since 7pm yesterday? I had the morning off today and I couldn't do anything ¬¬

Well, I promised to vsays I'm about to do a fangirl post. I'm actually fangirling over Big Bang a lot lately due to their awesomeness and the lack of Beast and SHINee in kpop world. I was thinking that maybe I should do a post giving all my reasons for loving them. Nobody cares why you like them, Laura.

Things like this make me want to have a facebook account (too much trouble anyways). JSDFHJSDFHJDHFDFJSK if only YG, if only you can send your boys down here to the end of the world so I can fangirl live with my only oppa and possible kidnap him to never let him return to Korea. Aaaahh~ a girl can dream, right?
What if they do come to Argentina and the tickets sold out in 2 hours like it happened with McFly, leaving me without a ticket, again, and I won't be able to see them anyways? I'd probably die, for sure.

Anywho, today was the last day of my first almost complete week at college. I already want to quit but at least I'm getting the degree for last year next month. I'm a teacher!! Well, a primary school teacher as the degree says. Hopefuly, I'll be a complete (?) teacher (for primary and high school) next year. Why am I rambling about all this? That's what you do to me Big Bang. It's not cool.

Oh! I'm a member of this amazing community creative_elite and I was accepted as co-mod! So if anyone is interested in icontests, you can apply here

Also, the book fair is starting next week, so I'll be going soon.

I'm excited! Anyone has any suggestions on what book should I get?

P.S.: I'm doing the bolding thing again, let's see how long that lasts

It's time for some KPOP icons! Well, all these icons are quite old, I just gathered the icons I made in 2010 in this post. The only new ones are the Big Bang ones cause I'm new to the fandom. As I am also new at making Kpop icons, I've been fighting with the colorings for certain pictures, so be good to me.
All the 2PM icons are dedicated to Kate, sugarpopchan. I made them for her birthday but since they look like crap, I didn't think they were gift-worthy.


It was all liesCollapse )
