|08:55 pm - I'd give up all my yaoi collection for a time machine...|
I really really really really need/want to learn to read and write Chinese completely fluently. That would be a big big big help with my current obsession. Yes yes it would. Dammit why didn't I put in more work when I was younger and mom tried to force me to learn more Chinese? Grrr...
I'm also beginning to think I'm born in the wrong era. Probably a couple hundred if not thousand years late. Stuck in the middle of an era and society that I don't particularly care much for, darn, isn't that just the greatest.

So apparently I can see/sense ghosts/spirits, like cooking, cleaning, and possibling babysitting...>___> erm....o~k~...XDDD I don't know about the rest but just that cooking one is enough to make me roflol since anyone who knows me knows I can't boil water without setting the kitchen on fire *snicker*
Current Mood: uncomfortable

I don't think anyone likes the time they're born in...
How good is your Chinese? I'd think you'd at least be able to understand the conversations in Bao Qing Tian and such. Is it just you're not as good with reading text?
Yeah I can understand about 99.9% of what's said in BQT, and normal conversation wise I can speak and understand about as much (once in awhile I'll stick in an English word or two to make up for words I don't know in Chinese lol). It's just my writing and reading skills suck like whoa ~_~
If it's simplified Chinese I can probably pick my way through given some time, as long as it's not like, highly academic writing or anything. As for writing...er...the most I can manage with writing is like, msn conversations (aka a few words XDD)

Lemme rec some fics for ya then... This bbs should be non-registry required but lemme know if you can't see them.
These are just Zhaozhao-centric, not slash, cuz I really don't know any good yaoi fics with Zhaozhao as seme off the top of my head.
XDD I just read that first one (well..."read" maybe 60% and guessed the other 40% XDD), took me from 4:48 to 5:30...so around 40 minutes (yes I timed myself ^^;;)....wow, but lol, got some good laughs out of it.
That's pretty cool, I'll have to read the other 3 once my eyes stop swimming, so different than reading english fics lol, thanks for the links!!
lol your not the only one that can burn water lol ^^ i like to cook but i wouldn't want to eat my cooking lol
exactly, it's more like...chemistry experiments XDD

I know the feeling. I'm on such a wuxia novel kick lately but there's hardly any of them translated into English so I have to take a whole day or more to read one chapter.
Omg that'd definitely take patience, I barely made it through that one 昭昭 fanfic up there XDD
