But then I log onto twitter to see allkpop tweet that SHINee got booed in Hong Kong? My initial reaction was honestly,
"WHAT?! HOW DARE THEY BOO MY SHINee?!?! DO THEY NOT KNOW WHO THEY ARE? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THEM????"
Now I admit that that did come from a biased mind, but we really can't help that, now can we? Anyways, a few minutes later I cooled down a bit, and checked tumblr (which is basically where I go for all of my information now). I've read the fan accounts, and I've seen the video, and I have reached the conclusion (as many other fans have) that this unfortunate turn of events was not SHINee's fault.
Obviously this was as a result of lack of communication and poor organizational skills. The translator should have been better prepared, or at least received a bit more training. That entire event appeared to be poorly organized (from what I saw from the fancam). So many problems could have been avoided if Etude House took more care into the organization of this event. If there's one thing that pisses me off the most it's a "professional" event that is completely disorganized.
However, I do think the HK reporters really did overreact. According to one of the explanations I read, the reporters who tried to take some pictures of SHINee felt as though they were roughly treated by the Korean staff the day before. Okay. I get that. But even if this was "rude and disrespectful" (which is not verified to my knowledge), there is nothing more rude or disrespectful than reporters, who are supposed to be professional and unbiased people, boo a band because of what their staff members did. No matter the circumstances. This kind of behaviour should never be accepted in the media world.
Plus the headlines I have been hearing about that state that SHINee "only cared about using their phones" and they "disregarded their fans", etc.- I WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME PROOF, PLEASE. This is not just me being biased, I swear, but I have yet to see actual proof to support these statements. If anyone has some, do share. I'm not saying that these claims cannot possibly be true, I am simply saying I have not seen any proof of anything stated, ever. And spreading lies (especially about my favourite kpop band) is not going to get you very far up on my list.
Now please not that I am NOT blaming every citizen of Hong Kong for this mess. I have nothing against these people. It's just that these reporters are pissing me off and ruining my good-ish day!! Plus they probably did not even think about how this would affect SHINee themselves. They did nothing wrong. If you go watch the fancam all you will see is blank stares mixed with confusion. It's not their fault they do not understand the language. They were just going with what people told them. Now if you had booed the translator or the organizers of this event I would have been more understanding. But it would not have made you any less unprofessional.
But I must say, SHINee has once again shown us how professional they really are. And I really am proud of them. I could never be so calm about this situation if I was in their shoes.
And if you would like to see for yourself-
Also, not related to this at all, but How I Met Your Mother's new episode tonight was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. First of all, how is the new episode affected? Just curious because I really don't know. And secondly, I hope everyone tries to stay safe during this terrible hurricane! My prayers go out to you.

Yesterday in dance we finished the group number for the show (well Harmony and I did- Kiana was sick and Mikayla had a concert thing going on). So all we have left to do is polish and perfect it. Today I learnt some more of my solo; I have roughly one more minute to learn until I'm finished. My dance teacher says I should be finished by next week. That means I'll have three weeks to perfect it until showtime. I can't believe December is so close already!! ._.
My teeth feel much better, and I can chew more or less everything now. So yay~ Speaking of chewing, I should go eat dinner soon.
President's was as good as it always is. Take that as you will... We got to play Catch & Rescue today though! It has been too long since I last played that game!! High school sucks >_> Next week we're having our meeting in a park. Outside. In public. Where everyone can see us. And we have to cook a three course meal out there. I can't wait. :|
I think my mom was in a bad mood this evening because she wanted to go to the beach (like she always does) and my sister and I didn't want to go because we have homework (like we always do).
But moving on. We finally have flyers for our show~
So now I'm excited again. We have about one month again!! My nerves should start to kick in in about two weeks. It has been so long since I've been on stage! ._. Here's to hoping I remember to actually perform out there. One thing I'm always excited for is the stage makeup, since I don't really wear much makeup in my everyday life. I am 1000000% serious when I say my plan B is to become a performer. I just can't help but love it!
I did not have dinner and I am currently starving. I really need to rethink some of my decisions these days...
Oh, and today's the day I realised my dance studio's name is "&5678 Dance Studio". I have seen that written on all the notices we get, but I don't know, it just never clicked in my head. So seven years later I finally know the official name for my dance studio. Where have I been? lol
But in all seriousness now... Today I finally had time to listen to Alexander Rybak's new song, "Leave Me Alone". The music video is wonderful, I especially love the bits of dancing in it. The violin is mesmerising as always. And the song itself has a really nice beat. Like everyone else though, I am quite concerned about the lyrics. I have heard he really was/is being stalked like the lyrics explains, and I just have to say how fucking disgusted I am by whoever is doing it. If I was Alexander I would have called the police for her ass a long time ago. That girl is extremely lucky he's nice enough to only write a song about it. And a fucking amazing song at that. This girl is very lucky I can't get my hands on her, even if there isn't much I could have done either way. But on a nicer note, how convenient that this all came about around Halloween so he could have an awesomely spooky video to spread the spirit. It's things like this that always make me skeptical. Well I can only hope that if this girl is still around that she gets the message and gets a life. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Yesterday morning I had to go to the dentist. I don't really mind going or anything, it's just that I have had my bracers for a little over two years now, and I am really fed up. Every time I have gone since June this year, they keep telling me my bracers will come off in my next appointment. Well it still hasn't happened yet!! I don't really mind the bracers or anything, but they keep getting my hopes up for nothing!!!
My appointment yesterday was conveniently placed at the same time as my double of music, though. I'll just have to do my presentation on Baroque music next week then. Oh well...
The rest of the day was pretty normal. I got out of going for math lessons because I was starving and my teeth were hurting really badly. Mashed potatoes really does not fill me at all. I need to chew! I still can't chew properly right now, besides at the back of the right side of my mouth. It is not as comfortable as it sounds.
Today was also pretty good. My French course work could have gone better, but at least I did good in Social Studies. There was a disco at lunch but I really was not in the mood to see 13 year olds flex on each other.
President's was better than expected. The people from the army could not come again today (I think they're avoiding us lol), so our leaders were telling us what we should pack in our ruck sacks. I think our first hike is in November. On Saturday we have to carry two jalitres of water to hold on our backs again. And then I have to go practice a dance that involves a lot of hand movement. How fun.
In President's one of our leaders was also telling us how there are people in the bush that they cannot control, and how we should deal with them if the situation arises. They made it really creepy by saying that "there may be some lonely people out there". Now tell me that does not remind you of a Lifetime movie. A small part of me wants to reconsider this.
My sister upset me, but what's new? She honestly thinks I would tell my entire class her business, which is one of the most hurtful things she has said to me (and she has said a lot of hurtful things). But whatever. Maybe now she'll stop telling me all of this useless information (and steal another one of my friends to tell it to instead). Either way I promised myself that I would not let her get to me, and boy am I trying.
I am really hungry right now. I tried to chew something during my dinner, but that did not end well. I think my mouth will feel better by tomorrow though. Plus tomorrow is Friday which means I have dance, so I will survive. I am completely serious when I say dance is the only thing I look forward to during the week. I am aware that this sounds a bit sad.
Oh, and Grey's Anatomy was pretty good. One of the better episodes of the season. In my opinion. Although I have been rather indifferent about it since it started back. I think my feelings are really broken this time...
this "personal blogging" thing doesn't seem as hard as I thought

I'm still getting the hang of this website, but I'll get there. I was never that good at keeping a journal, but considering I spend so much time online I think this should be much easier. My tumblr also contains some personal posts, but recently they have become very censored. I hope that will not happen here.
I'm on tumblr- here
And twitter- here
So um....hi. ^^
(this doesn't really have anything to do with...well, anything, but my iPod is on shuffle and it just played Regret by Malice Mizer, and then it played the live version of it! I love it when things like that happen!!)
