First day back and the homework attacks. I already have bio homework, which I think is kind of sad. I know, I know, “Wait until you get to university, then you’ll be crying!” but I’m not in university yet, so I can complain about the now, because that’s all I know.
So my schedule got messed up, so I have Business first period, Bio second, lunch, Tech Design fourth, and English last. Bio and Eng switched for me, so I went from a good bio teacher to a bad one. Plus my English teacher, I just don’t understand. It took me a while to figure out he was talking about the Prime Minister, which then somehow turned into a lecture about consuming snakes in Africa. Me and my friend T spent the period wondering what the heck he was trying to tell us.
My friend Danica got me to watch this Japanese drama: Hana Yori Dango (Boys Before Flowers).
Makino Tsukushi is the only poor student at Eitoku Gakuen, the school of the ridiculously rich and privileged that is ruled by Flower 4 or F4, a group of four boys who come from extremely powerful families: Domyoji Tsukasa, the leader and heir of the Domyoji World Finance Group; Hanazawa Rui, the introverted son of a large company; Nishikado Sojiro, a player who is the heir of a tea ceremony school; and Mimasaka Akira, a madam killer with ties to the underground. If a student gets on the F4’s bad side, he/she gets a red notice and is bullied and driven out of school.
Makino hopes to pass her days quietly– without drawing any attention to herself– but one day, she stands up to Domyoji in defense of her friend. The next day, Makino gets the dreaded red notice. Even though she is harassed, Makino decides to keep going to school because she is a “tough weed”. She declares war right back on the F4. Her resolve gets the attention of her crush Hanazawa Rui and oddly enough, rouses romantic feelings in her worst enemy, Domyoji Tsukasa.
The series is based on the Japanese shoujo manga “Hana Yori Dango” (Boys Before Flowers) by Kamio Yoko.
That’s the description from the site. So far, it seems pretty good, though some parts are really funny, while others make me want to bang my forehead against a wall (mainly in the scenes with her family). I just finished episode three, so it probably gets better soon.
Currently: Doing bio homework…
