I wouldn't say I'm addicted to League of Legends....

...but I can safely say I've been playing it quite a bit!!


Yes, I, Olivia have been playing League of Legends~

I really really enjoy it! It's a really great way for me to release stress (or get more stressed in some situations) and interact with my friends. Some of the champions I enjoy playing (but still am not too good at) are; Ashe, Ezreal, Teemo, Jarvan IV and Quinn (and Valor). Not to mention the art in the game of some champions is absolutely AMAZING.

More recently though, I've been watching the League of Legends Championships and Wow!! some of the players (well all of them are professionals) are so amazing! Their tactics and co-ordination really fascinate me and make me want to try harder. ^O^

I've been following some teams for a few months now that I'm getting more into League.

My favourite team is probably Team SoloMid (although they were going through some roster changes, Keep Fighting TSM and Chaox!!)

And I really really enjoy watching the streams of Voyboy (from Curse Gaming) and Phantoml0rd. Both I find are really educational and also really fun to watch.

I've also been a little starstruck today~
Maybe that's why I'm all giddy!

Today as I was watching the Good Game University vs. Team Vulcun game I noticed the mid lane player of GGU Jintae playing really amazingly. He was not only making good plays and was also helping a lot in team fights. I sent him a Tweet just congratulating him and saying he played well and I was greeted by a lovely surprise!


Haha Here's what I said to him~

 And his replies. (please read from bottom up ^o^)

Admittedly I fangirled a lot, and I can safely say I squealed a little. (Hey, I can do this, I'm human too!!) I just really love how professional players acknowledge their (new) fans and say a thank-you~

I know that this is a very different post for my blog but it's something I've been really into and I thought I'd make a blog post about it. ^^

Do you play League of Legends? If so who is your favourite champion?? I'd love to know!

All for now~

University of Sydney O-Week!!

Whoo! Today was the last day of my first week of University but this post is about the week before...//belatedposttt// Sydney Uni's O-Week, or orientation week.
The week is supported by the University of Sydney Union and they manage the social clubs and associations~


Now that oweek has left and lectures have started here's my recap of 2013 usyd oweek!


Day 1: Wednesday!!

Monday started early with catching the train up with kevin, arriving just before 9 and quickly signing up for my first club, SuAnime (ofcourse!) And then promptly heading off to an education lecture....


Post education orientation lecture Beatrice and I found each other and we went on a wander having a look at all of the clubs and societies which had stands and miscellaneous stands looking at products and services offered.


On day 1 I ended up signing up to; SuAnime, Scandinavian society, Chinese cultural appreciation society (chopsticks) and Japanese cultural appreciation society (wasabi). All of the people at the stands were so nice and I was pretty easily sucked into joining haha...


With Beatrice and John inside the Domo-kun suit!! It would have been a heater in there ><




Lunch with Beatrice at Seoul-ria!! It was soo nice >3<


After Lunch we headed to media asia to get some things (of which I am going to blog about next!!) and to Kinokuniya before we had to split~

It was sooo awesome hanging out with Beatrice!! She's one of the funniest, frank, hyper and chirpy persons I've ever met! Thank-you sooo much for hanging out with me ^o^


Day 2: Thursday!!


Thursday morning was more relaxing as I knew I was in for a day of listening to welcomes~ As soon as I got to uni I was talking to the members of SuAnime and CosSoc and had such an amazing time talking to A. from Cossoc!! It's soo awesome meeting Jrock/pop fans!!!!


Eating cotton Candy with Beatrice ^o^ We had to split up after this as I had an Arts lecture and Beatrice a Pharm one~



A surprisingly big turnout for a rather dim day~ Luckily there was no rain so no one was wet!


Yeah USyd has their own Quidditch club!! I watched a game and it looks so fun!!



Day 3: Friday

Man, Friday was just wet wet wet. From getting on at the station till I got home it was rain rain rain! I'm sure mum was happy she didn't have to water her garden ^o^


 Ahh the small turnout!! On the day most of the stalls were empty of people but filling with water! On the day I walked around talking to my unit professors and went on a tour of Fisher Library~


How I saw USyd on Friday~
After wandering around, Tim (who is now going to UTS) and I met up and caught lunch at Ajisen Ramen in Haymarket! The ramen there is sooo good and they were playing a Kat-tun concert (which it took me a while to figure out it was them D:)




The Katsu Ramen is sooo good!!

All in all it was a really fun week and I ended up joining 5 societies and hopefully I'll be active within them! ^o^
So far the first week of uni has flown by pretty well and I'm happy with all of my classes~ All of my peers are so nice and I've made a few friends within my classes ^3^

All for now~
I'll be posting a review soon hopefully~ Maybe tomorrow :O
