let them say what they will

I just woke up to a text message from a friend telling me to pick the itunes bonus tracks from Sainthood by Tegan and Sara (out today! yes!)... aaaaaand I think the song Light Up is just what I wanted (but is no Call It Off)! Slow heart songs are my favourite.  Oh, and, Wrists isn't bad either.

So, everyone go check out Light Up (especially if you were kind of disappointed by the album...).

Love, Keiko.

fuck stats.

Standard deviation destroyed my mark in math in grade 12.  Guess what... It's going to destroy my stats mark on this assignment I'm working on+midterm tomorrow. Eff. I don't know why, but standard deviation+keiko just does not work. So, instead of working on it let's check out this wikipedia entry that one of my BFFs sent to me...

(Plus, who's stoked on the new season of SYTYCD?!)

Love, Keiko.

P.S. Once I get myself caught up in all my courses (I am determined!)/midterms are finished I plan to start blogging more/being more interesting.

I don't wanna know.

Tegan and Sara - Sainthood.

Yup, I downloaded it as soon as it leaked. That night I gave it a quick listen (approx. 10-15 seconds of each song) before I went to bed, and hated it.  Well, not hated it, but I didn't like it. I'm not sure what I was expecting - all of their albums are so different, and I've grown to love The Con more than anything, so I guess wanted something similar (or something like If It Was You...). Anyway, I was super bummed the next day because I thought I didn't like the new album, but since then I've been listening to it on repeat and I really like it. I am still a bit bummed that there isn't a slow song that just breaks my heart (example: Call It Off). I guess it sounds fun and catchy and sort of upbeat. And I like it. It's not my favourite by them (eventually after enough listens I will LOVE it), but I like it (and the bolded songs below? I love).

My faves?

On Directing
The Cure
The Ocean
Sentimental Tune

Love, Keiko

we are all running for the thrill of it.

ch-ch-check it out!
im defs gonna do this if im around.
pretty sweet calgs. pretty sweet.


i love tv

I haven't had much time to be keeping up with all the TV shows that I love, but here's a list of what I think is awesome.

1. Glee - Best. Show. Ever.  This is my new fave! Jane Lynch is perfect (well, everyone in it is perfect), and the more her character gets into the show, the better/funnier it is (my fave Jane Lynch part so far = writing in her journal).  Just hilarious! This is one of the only shows that I've been keeping up with every week.

2. Grey's Anatomy - Obviously. But I hate the whole deal with the merger with Mercy West, but whatev, it's still alright - There have been some pretty funny moments so far (Christina in pediatrics = so funny). I've also been watching this one every week... aaand I'm pretty much in love with Callie and Arizona <3

3. Criminal Minds - I've only seen the first couple episodes of this season.  This show is amazing and terrifying.  So good.

4. Dexter - So many people have never watched Dexter before! What?! If you haven't seen it, you are missing out! Go watch it.

There are more, like Gossip Girl, but I've missed so many episodes I'll have to wait a while before I have time to get caught up.

Love, Keiko.

Not too happy

There is so much I would rather be doing right now, but I am stuck completing a Stats assignment (part of which, I copied wrong from the program at school - and the program isn't compatible with my Macbook, so I can't even do the parts that I want to) and studying for midterms.

Some things I wish I could do:

1. Play Scrabble and/or Bananagrams
2. Clean my room/Organize my room (sometimes I can be a little bit OCD with organization...)
3. Shop.  I need more tights, maybe some skirts, and some sweaters
4. Catch up on Gossip Girl + The Hills + Glee
5. Bake! I've been in a bit of a baking mood (but lack the funds to buy ingredients).  Cupcakes, please.
Love, Keiko.

p.s. Fuck the snow.  I'm not ready for this.  Today after work I had to scrape the ice/frost off of my windshield.
