Well, it looks like NaBloPoMo is coming to an end.
Literally, in like 20ish minutes for me.
So, without further ado I present the last favorite manga snapshots of the month!
Of course, the month ends with Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. One of my absolute favorite mangas. Funny to the extreme and so awesome-tastic, I’ve yet to come across someone who doesn’t love it.
Anyway, this is my way of saying goodbye November.
So I’ve previously mentioned how awesome my teachers are, specifically my Biology teacher, somewhere on this blog or in a comment or something. And so I’m going to now show y’all exactly how awesome my Biology teacher is. I’ve still yet to take pictures of the classroom, but I’ve got this video.
This was taken right before we had to line up for our IB Biology exam. As it’s been a while since the exam, I can freely talk about it now without fear of being kicked out of IB and ruining my reputation forever. That kind of cheating can ruin your life. Seriously. So anyways, here we all are freaking out like crazy, obviously thinking we’re going to fail. (I’m still not sure how I did – I’m praying for a 4. Please, just a 4 would be nice.) And so, realizing how freaked we all are, my Bio teacher starts up a youtube video on the smart board on this dance thing. He tells us to loosen up and relax: start dancing.
We go, “No. Noooo…we need to study.”
His response, “Last minute cramming won’t do you all much good. Relaxing before your panic wipes everything from your memory will though.”
Us, “You do it!”
And he goes, “FINE. I WILL.”
And so he does. And we all die laughing. For some reason though, I’m the only one who decided to whip my phone out and record it! Like WTF, this stuff is GOLD! (In the last bit, you can tell he caught me. Bahaha.)
But yeah, anyways, this is my IB BIO HL teacher, LOVE HIM. He’s so adorkable. All the time.
*Note: This video is set as unlisted on YouTube (the only way I could get it on here), meaning that I don’t want it to be seen by EVERY human in the world. However, it can be seen to those who have the link to it. That means don’t really share this with too many people, all right? 😀
Visits to Jerico’s Clinic
While seemingly an innocent film about a cat doctor and his patients, Visits to Jerico’s Clinic, documents the sinister events that occur within the walls of an old clinic listed to be demolished.
The drastic turn of events from occasional visits by children with their mothers, led hand in hand, to suspicious looking individuals creeping in the doors at night, are not only shocking, but terrifying as well. More so for those who choose to sympathize with the kitten doctor.
At the start of the movie, it is clear that we are to connect with Jerico as he struggles to keep his clinic open long enough for him to be able to make a profit large enough to relocate.
It tears the heart to know that his beloved clinic must be destroyed and that he will lose all his supporting patients he has come to know for so long. As with each last check-up he makes, there are tears in his eyes as well as ours.
These only occur throughout the day.
Following various patients’ interviews, we are given an insight to Jerico’s nightly visits. We see disguised individuals make their way into the clinic only to eventually come to realize just what kind of individuals visit Doctor Jerico.
Vampires. Werewolves. Witches. Demons. Even Superheros. Villains as well.
A definite must see.
So I am finally putting up last week’s Creative Writing Club prompt which was to either ‘review’ a make-believe movie (your own movie) or make-believe book (your own book). This was mine and well, for 15 minutes of trying to come up with something, I think it went pretty well.
BTW, I totally want to see this movie.
The best part of this TED talk, besides all the humor, is Charlie Todd’s last comment on the point of improv: there is none.
In conclusion to his presentation on The Shared Experience of Absurdity, he says:
“There doesn’t have to be a point. We don’t need a reason. As long as it’s fun and it seems like it’s going to be a funny idea and it seems like the people who witness it will also have a fun time, then that’s enough for us. And I think as adults we need to learn that there’s no right or wrong way to play. Thank you very much.”
There is no right or wrong way to play guys. Let’s remember that.
And this is one of my absolute favorites!
Because I was so mesmerized. And just couldn’t believe the talent this guy has. It also posed several questions in my mind, the most important being “If you could control someone’s attention what would you do with it?”
That’s very hard to answer because there are all sorts of things you can do with that.
This TED talk is riveting and also very humorous. Did you see it? Are you observant?
It’s fun and definitely makes you smile.
Lots of cheers for Apollo Robbins, professional pick-pocket, who teaches everyone that the art of misdirection is more than what is conceived in movies and tv shows.
