Sad Face

I wish I'd bought the Zelda 3DS when it was still in stores. I have the money now, but it's not in stock anywhere around that I know of. I only want the system really, I don't even need the game it comes with as I got it as a present by accident! Oh well, I guess I will keep scouring ebay though a lot of people are trying to sell the bundle for ~$300, which I am not willing to pay.

Writer's Block: All-Nighter

When was the last time you stayed up all night? What were you doing?
Last night! Well, I fell asleep for two hours, but whatever. I was waiting to leave on a plane back to the States. We had to get up around 4am anyways, so the people from my group just stayed up all night and hung out in our hotel rooms. It was fun~

Writer's Block: It Sounds Better When You Say It

No matter what language you speak, you've probably come across words or phrases in another language that sound better than their equivalents in your native tongue. What's your favorite word or phrase in a foreign language?

Pretty much everything sounds better in French.

une pamplemousse = grapefruit

Pourquoi pas? = Why not?

un sac a dos = backpack

Je t'aime = I love you

 

Better in French.
