On Wednesday I finally watched Spirited Away with babe. I absolutely LOVED it! Maybe I'll go out and buy myself my own copy. Does anyone know where I could buy it?
     On Thursday after PCI, I hung out with Geoffrey. It was nice hanging out with that hooker! Lol. So funny.
    Today, nothing significant. I went to Patty's after De Anza and we played on the Wii. She got me really excited to play the Wii again, so when I got home today, I immediately took all the Nintendo game systems (N64,  Game Cube, Wii, DS, and SP) and brought them to my room. My parents said that we'll go to Ikea next week so I can find myself a nice shelf. I'm excited.
     Tomorrow is a big day for me... Well for the most part. I'm going to (hopefully) get a new phone. I'm really hoping to get the Android! Also, tomorrow, I'm going to have my hair cut. I'm honestly scared to cut my hair. If it doesn't turn out nice, I'd probably cry until Monday. I haven't cut my hair in years. Too many memories. But yea.. Big day!
     No deep thoughts or anything for tonight. I'll think of something though.

     Pink. Green. Orange. Yellow. White. Chocolate. Coffee. They all taste delicious yet I swear I will get cavities. I'm glad I'm doing the buffet final with Serena. I couldn't have asked for a better partner. We work so well together!
     Patty and I went out to Chipotle's for lunch today. It was so nice. I haven't went out for lunch in a long time. Plus she treated me out (for some reason... lol). Thank you Patty! I owe you one homie. I love lunching with Patty. If only I didn't have a curfew, then I'd stay Forever!
     Pizza night was pretty fun. The original plus Eugene, Elizabeth and David. We took so many pictures that I bet the other customers were like "WTF! STFU!" Lol. So after, we went to Darren's, then went to Costco for gas, then back to Darren's where they were planning on what to make a video of. I coudn't stay for long. Plus I was falling asleep so I went home and showered. I'm about to go to bed now. It's only 11 and I'm crashing!

     This past weekend was one of the busiest for me. I woke up early Saturday morning and immediately began to move things out of my room to downstairs.
    Sunday, eat Pho with family then help my sister move all of her stuff out. Then we took apart my bed and everything too. Pure emptiness in my room. How odd. The carpet cleaner guy came and cleaned. My family then went to this jump house place called "Pump it up" for my cousin's birthday. I did one round of all the obstacles. How embarrassing though, there were 2 guys that I knew who works there. LOL.
     When we came home, I helped my dad out a bit by putting some things back into the room. Eventually when the carpets dried, I put more things back.
     Today, I took Darren and Eugene to De Anza. Nothing else significant at school..
     Our days are shallow here at PCI. I shall forever treasure the moments I spend in class.
     Sorry, just random thoughts in my mind that probably doesn't make sense. Too much to do tonight! I gotta start with French Hw...

     Everyday around 11:30 PM, Clover goes to the front door and just barks and barks. No one is there because I've opened the door and I've peered through the peep hole, I've checked. But it's kinda freaky having your dog bark at the door around the same time. I didn't notice it at first, but then I started noticing the time he begins barking. Creepy much?
     Anyways, yesterday was alright, nothing special or significant. I called up that person that was bugging me and we talked for about an hour. Everything is all settled now and the dispute is now over. I'm really glad I did it because it really bothered me.
     So today, I woke up and immediately started emptying out my room. I finished around 1 PM. My room is now empty, except for the bed and the dresser. My walls are also very bare, I moved some of the things that Jen, Allyson and Maggie made for me to the wall right in front of the door. I also moved some pictures there from Kenny and Wilson also. Then I moved my shadowboxes to the adjacent and opposite walls. No more karate stuff on the walls. It's gonna get moved somewhere else. So at first, my parents were going to postpone the room remodeling to next week, but hopefully they'll do it tomorrow. Some guy's gonna come and clean the carpets tomorrow. I guess if it dries in time, then we'll move the beds and stuff. I'm excited to see what'll happen! For sure they'll do it this week right?
     Around 6:30 PM, I went to a family party, then I left at 8 to hang out with Kim. We ended up going to our usual place, Sweet Hearts. We left after an hour and a half, went back to my place, talked, then she left around 10.
     Now I'm at home, bored, and about to play some Neopets or something. Hehe...

     My pent up anger for this person was driving me crazy so I ranted to Patty about how bad it was... I'm so glad she was there to listen. I'm seriously going to have a talk with this person next week, obviously, me standing back and letting them treat me this way is not improving anyone.. But anyways...
     My final for PCI... OMG! I was so nervous! Chef set it up so we have to prep our workstation as if we were in a real restaurant. Then he times us, 1 min per plate, I went first and, knowing me, I had really bad stage fright. My hands were all shaky, I was sooo nervous! Blah, over all I guess I did well. I didn't fail miserably at least. We didn't really do much in class afterwards. It's only moments now till we're finished..
     After class, I immediately bolted out, changed and drove to my interview at Left Bank in Santana Row. I met up with Chef David and I immediately got the extern. Yay! He looked at a my portfolio and really liked what he saw. I can't wait to start! I wont start till after I finish school. But I'm basically in! It was a quick, short meeting.
     So as I was leaving, I somehow went on the wrong floor, unknowingly, and I was wandering aimlessly looking for my car. I seriously thought I was car jacked! I was soo scared! But then, I thought about it and I ended up parking on the wrong floor. FML. I looked like an idiot walking around, how embarassing! Lol.
    Anyways, I have to give my sister the laptop now.

     Since I was sick, I was too lazy to blog, even though I had all the time in the world...
     So on Tuesday, I did... Absolutely. N.O.T.H.I.N.G; Nothing. Okay okay, maybe saying "Nothing" might be a little too strong... I didn't really do absolutely nothing. I did something; like surf the net, worked on my portfolio, stalked people on Facebook, comment on things on Facebook, watched a crapload of CSI (LV/NY), drank so much tea that my salivary glands were starting to secrete tea... Oh! and also go to "Pizza night", instead, we went to iHop for their National Free Pancake Day. All I got were the Free Pancakes and hot tea, sadly I only finished 2 of the 3 pancakes, but thanks to Vince, he finished it for me! Along with his 5 other pancakes, eggs and bacon thingy... The guys, Darren, Alan, and Vince, were all competeting to see who could finish the fastest. Guess who won? Yup, the one and only FATASS; Darren.
     After our meal, we headed back to Darren's for a little, then all went our seperate ways. I didn't really do much at home afterwards. I talked to Blake before I went to bed (of course) and slept.
     This morning, when I got to school, I found Patty in the parking lot and we walked to class together. She filled me in on EVERYTHING that I missed out on. You gotta love Patty. Lol. In class, I basically stayed awake the whole time. I couldn't fall asleep at all! Oh well, I learned about Venus though. I wish I could stay awake like that. I guess 11 hours of sleep might do you in. Right?
     After school, I went to Blake's and made myself a grilled cheese sandwhich. It was absolutely delicious! We then finished the last episode of HIMYM S3. He made me another grilled cheese (with turkey) then we departed.
     School was pretty productive. I got everything ready for tomorrow's final. It is now a test of zen mixed with simplicity and elegance. Oxymoron much? I told Chef that my interview for Left Bank is tomorrow so he made some calls to put in a good word for you. I guess that's what happens when you have a chef with hook ups right? I didn't find it neccesary because I think I'd do well, but he did it on his impulse. I think Nancy was a bit disastisfied by that because she can't really get any hookups to. C'est la vie. She's getting better though, she actually cleaned all of her own dishes. Jasmine was also in class, but left early of course... I'm so ready for this final and my interview. No stress!
     Anyways, not much to do now. I found myself a hairstylist! The one, the only, TJ! I can't wait to see the wonders he can do to make shorthair beautiful.
     I guess that's all I have to say for now... Can't wait for tomorrow!

Picture
bacon and ground pork sasuage baking in a chocolate bar
     Don't you notice that almost everything on thisiswhyyourefat.com has to do with bacon and other various pork products? Good thing I stopped eating pork!

     On Saturday, I took Jen to Chowder Fest in Santa Cruz on the boardwalk! We made it alive! Lol. We first looked for Chef Tomm's booth. When we found it we decided to go looking around for things to do. We ended up going into this haunted house thing. HECKA SCARYY! Jen kept screaming! It was so dark though, I couldn't see anything.
     After that, we went to a deserted part of the beach and layed there, took some pics and talked. When it was time to eat chowder, Jen and I ventured off and went to booths that we thought was good. Jen thinks that Chef Tomm's Chowder was the best. Of course. Lol.
     After that, we crossed this old bridge thing. It was so scary! I was scared I was going to fall, unfortunately, I didn't know there was a newer walkway on the side. FML. After crossing that, Jen and I decided to go explore the neighborhoods. We found an abandoned house and got into it's storage spot. This person had really nice antique furniture! I'm so jealous!
     Around 3, we made our way home, I dropped off Jen and got ready to go to Sacramento.
     My uncle drives so slow! It's friken nerve racking! I ended up falling asleep though. When we arrived in Sacramento, I wasn't feeling well. We didn't really do much over the weekend. I helped my dad out on Sunday fixing up the house and stuff.
     When we got home, I talked to  Blake on the phone for a while, then went to bed around 9ish.
     I woke up at 5 in the morning, hecka randomly and I couldn't fall back asleep! It was torture. But I ended up sleeping. Now I'm all sore and whatnot. I skipped out on De Anza and I'm probably going to stop by PCI for a little bit, just for the demo. I think that if I leave school early, I'm gonna go talk to Amanda about everything, like how no one likes her and the whole Bryce thing. Ughh. Does being sick make me do irrational things? Whatever, she needs to hear it. I'm not gonna "sugar coat" anything and I'm gonna tell her straight up. It's for the best and I'm tired of seeing her depressing status updates on facebook. C'est la vie.

     I only look at the bad in life only to lower my expectations because when good happens, it's a shock to me. If you always look for the silver lining and you don't see it, then you'll be disappointed. But if you don't look for the silver lining and it doesn't show then you have already expected it. Does that make sense? Honestly though, it's really just me. We all have our own opinions and this is mines. I choose to be a pessimist; I choose to see the glass half empty.

     Nothing really important happened yesterday.. Oh! Chef got really mad at Nancy because she left early. I felt like she was totally disrespectful because she left early for an "emergency" and she didn't even tell him. The class was still a bit messy too! Ughh..
     Anyways, this morning I carpooled with Darren and we had a heart to heart talk. It was nice. We established that we're that far into our friendship that if we have a problem with each other, we'll talk it out and we wont have hard feelings about it.
     At school, we worked on plating, then chocolate. Nancy kept complaining about how Chef went and talked to her before class. Oiy vey.. Anyways... After class, I went over to Carlos' and helped him with his Pate a Choux. Anthony was home too. We just made pate a choux, talked and just hung out.
     Carlos is hecka funny. While we were walking to my car with all my stuff, he was like, "Did you know that Anthony had a little crush on you? He was gonna ask you out and stuff but I told him that Blake liked you." I was like, "Whatt? I barely talked to him back then!" haha. There was more to it, but yea, that was pretty much it. Funny funny.
     Anyways, just watching Good Eats: Chocolate. Perfect! Lol. Sometimes I feel like I have perfect timing on a lot of things in life. Well... Bed tim efor me! I'm exhausted here. Night loves.
