100 Reasons Why “Summer Time” Is My Favorite NEWS PV

I fell asleep after I got home from school yesterday. It was Friday, so I thought it would be nice to sleep a little longer than usual. (Normally, since I can scrape together only two hours of sleep on a school day, I take 2-4 hour naps once I get home.) Friday, I went to sleep at four in the afternoon and woke up at nine.

That is, nine o’clock Saturday morning.

That’s SEVENTEEN hours of sleep. My new record. =D And I only woke up because The Pest woke me up because Mama told him to because she was worried that I wouldn’t ever wake up. xP I missed the dance at my school, and if I had volunteer work the next day I would have been late for that.

I learned my lesson: no more all-nighters.

So. I meant to type this up yesterday, which I’d been working on during the times when I should have been studying for the 6-chapter AP Bio test that I totally and completely bombed on Friday my free time.

“Summer Time” is probably my favorite NEWS song. Well, after “Bambina,” but that’s one of my favorite songs ever. Out of all of their PVs, “Summer Time” is my absolute favorite; there is so much going on in that PV that I couldn’t catch up with it without pausing the video. And so I decided to make a list of all the little things I love about it. I just didn’t expect the list to grow so long. I would have taken screencaps, but there would have been way too many, and I am far too lazy to do such a thing. :P

My timing may vary one or two seconds, depending on which video you’re watching.

Without further delay, here’s…

That took such a long time to do! Well, at least it was fun. Maybe I’ll do it again someday when I don’t feel like doing homework. Probably with the “weeeek” PV. There’s tons of happenings  in that.

NEWS is definitely dominating my thoughts lately. This is exactly why I wanted to avoid the world of Japanese entertainment. It’s terribly addicting.

Whenever I get really tired, I have no control over what I write. So when I was taking History notes during the day I pulled that all-nighter, I found myself writing the line, “I love NEWS” in my notebook instead of what the teacher was saying. >.< And two days ago, on Thursday, I was watching a film during French class. A pig popped up on screen, and immediately I thought, “MASSU!”

No school Monday so I’m goofing off as much as I want!

Until next time,

~ Mimi ^—^

P.S. That 68 I got on the AP Bio test? The teacher said, since everyone did atrociously (the girl ranked #1 in my year got only a 74), that we could redo the test, she’ll average the two grades, and that will be our new grade. My D+ went up to an 84, which I can definitely live with.
