Veggielution!!! Hehe, I look forward to going there every other day now. I feel as if this experience has been very empowering to me. Not only does it keep me occupied in the morning, it allows me to make a small difference by contributing about 2 hours of my morning to grow, plant, weed the vegetables and feed the worms. Today though, I helped reorganize the farm a bit so it's all in order... somewhat. Then I helped feed the worms by ripping up scraps of newspapers with Hailey. There were so many roaches, spiders and rollie pollies in that ditch... It was like a friken grave, but more shallow. I was frightened that I would have fallen in. Good thing I didn't! Afterwards, I helped this guy fertalize the plants. After that, I just headed home. I didn't get to work with Will today! Sadness.
When I went home, I was planning to make some Macarons, but Carlos randomly texted me asking to hang out. It was around 12ish so I said that as long as we finish my 2, I'm totally fine with it. It took him till 1:30 to finally come over. We didn't have much time to do anything, so we just chilled in my room instead. We talked, watched TV, plays guitar hero, and (I) learned the guitar. Kim was supposed to show up at 2, but she ended up showing up around 3 or 4.
I helped Kim out by being a "check point" for the Amazing Race (Kim style). So basically, all of her friends (5 groups) run around all of Milpitas to certain checkpoints, then do a task at the checkpoint and go to the next place, etc. My task was, "Sing Jessica a song, she loves Taylor Swift, Wicked, Journey and Grease." The first 3 teams all sang me Taylor Swift. The 4th team was awesome and sang me a mix up of Journey and Wicked. The last team sang Taylor Swift. Lol! It was really funny.
After all the teams came and went, Carlos finally went home. I felt bad for having him stay for an extra hour while I was running up and down the stairs... So after he left, I had some downtime before Pizza, so I practiced This Modern Love - Bloc Party on guitar. I'm getting better! Lol.
Pizza night was fun. We played Telephone and got some REALLY random results...It was fun nonetheless. After that, we headed to Darren's played some smash and talked about random days where we're gonna wear fanny packs, carry pokemon cards, and do what we would've done when we kids. We're gonna bring back the 90's! Haha. And maybe throw in a random TOGA day or something. This'll definitely be interesting.
I shaved my legs this morning! So smooth! Lol. Business was alright. I was really focusing on trying to stay awake that I didn't pay attention to her at all. I'm scared that maybe business isn't my thing. Ahh! I'm just so lazy! Bleh.
Break! I went to Starbucks @ Target with the oh-so-lovely ikevyftw. I ordered a double chocolately chip. Craving: Satisfied. We then walked to Whole Foods and splurged on some derrrrisious mac n cheese, veggie potstickers, chowmein, and pulled pork (which I obviously didn't eat). We're such fatties. <3. We also bumped into An and Nazhat.
I was getting serious blisters from my flats that I was breaking in, so I was basically limping everywhere because it was extremely painful. The things you do to look nice nowadays... Ouch. So, I went to class and I was going to ask Will for a bandaid. But then I got nervous so I chickened out! I just sat there! Blah.
Class was fun today. The prof got 2 guys who just became friends in class to be an example today. He made them hold hands and asked them how they felt. They said fine at first, but then he said "if you guys saw each other outside of class and held hands, how would you feel?" Then they said uncomfortable. Proven point. We are conditioned to be homophobic in the slightest way. There's nothing wrong with holding hands, but we automatically associate hand holding with the term Gay. So, the prof showed us a sunday comic and it was about "Jeremiah's Last Song" and basically there's these 2 cowboys sitting around a campfire. Jeremiah is holding a guitar singing something like this, "I haven't seem a woman in weeks and yer startin to look pretty good". Next to the guy he is singing to is a prelit dynamite and a shotgun. The point is, the society laughs at this but is this really something you should laugh at because this cowboy is bisexual or gay? It also throws in violence meaning that if you're gay or bisexual, you are unaccepted in society.
He also showed us a Bacardi news ad. The scene is basically the night life with city lights behind. In the middle, there is a circle with 3 men and 1 woman who is being carried at an uncomfortable situation by those men. In the background is a couple which symbolizes love. There is a huge Bacardi bottle in a phallic like state that is basically shoved up the girl's crotch area (because her legs are sorta open) and there is literally, white foam coming out. What this ad is basically saying is "If you drink this, you can get laid or gangbang a girl, or eventually fall in love". The power of ads. I feel as though we see ads like this everyday, but the message is so subliminal that it just passes through our minds, yet, we are conditioned to think about sex and romance and stuff. I don't know.. There was so much more we learned in class though. Definitely love this section in class though.
After class, I packed my things and went up to Will and asked him if he had a bandaid. He was kinda like "uhh, wtf?" but he didn't have one. Darn, oh well. I did it right? I gave him a hug and then limped my way to class all joyful like and everything.
I got a 15/20 on my quiz. Ehh, C..? I could've done better. Class was boring, Darren got me a bandaid, and we left early.
Cotillion Practice today! Pretty successful. I hate that I keep forgetting the basics! Grr... My feet were definitely in pain though. After practice, Kristen, Jen, Jojo, Allyson and I went to Sendai for some supper. Yum! We had some money confusion but we got it all sorted out. So, I dropped everyone off at home and went home myself. I got done with 1 math homework and I practiced some guitar. Painful fingers! Ouchie! Maybe I'll do more math or something....
Jen's droid kept sending the same tweet over and over again to my phone. The tweet was "I feel like this is the perfect time to say something... I'm so scared though! My fingers are shaking!" It seemed as though it only kept resending to my droid for some reason. So Jen and I came up with the conclusion, Jen's CougarDroid, Fabrizia, is in love with my Nerdy Droid, Dexter. She's trying to send him a sign. Lol! If we could get Allyson's BabyDroid in, we'll have a DroidThreesome!
I woke up and did homework. Yay for me! I got distracted, but at least I got SOME done... right? Around 3:30PM, I hungout with Hieu. He picked me up and we visited the band kids at MIP. Around 4, we left and went to the theaters. KICK ASS! Omg, that movie is good! I totally did not expect it to be this great... and bloody. Lol.
After, he dropped me home, I was going to hang out with Geoff, but he rescheduled to Tuesday so I just tried to do more homework.
I woke up early and got ready to go to MHS for the very first meeting with Cosmo. I was super early when I got there so I wandered around for a bit, then I decided to just sit down. Next came Cosmo and his dance partner. I don't remember her name... lol. Then Jen, Allyson, and Kevin came. Axell came too but he had to leave early. So anyways, we had a small discussion with Cosmo, then we headed off to the L buildings so he could teach us a few moves. Kikay, Junette and Kirsten came later on and that was it. We started off with the salsa. We did the basic steps and eventually added in our hips. The salsa is supposed to be a nice flirty type dance. Next was the tango, which is a more seductive and serious dance. We did a few steps of that and just kept practicing. It was pretty fun. We got to partner with each other and practice our moves. All in all, it was really fun. Pretty dissappointing on how many people came though. There better not be that many next time or imma kick some ass.
After practice, I called up Kim and we ended up going to the Blackbelt test really early. I didn't expect to be there at all! But we went anyways. We said HI to a bunch of people. I actually got to have a sit down convo with Danyelle. She's pretty cool to talk to.
When testing was over and it was time to leave, I helped the Creamers set up a bit, then met up with Kim and Jen. We waited for a really long time before KJN could come out, but once he did, we immediately left. We went to Mongolian BBQ for lunch. Delish! I love how it is an all you can eat buffet. This is definitely a MUST GO TO place! You'd love it.
After lunch, we went back to SCU and got out seats. VIP BABY! Lol. I felt so special! The show was alright. Demo team finally had a new routine! Its definitely better. The show ended around 9ish. I had to leave though, no conditioning unfortunately, but I'm sure they did great
CONGRATS YOU GUYS! YOU DID IT! Many many red tops are coming in the future. I wish I was a part of them through the trainings though, C'est la vie.
Ate pho with my dad and 2 brothers, no mama today... I basically just did some homework and met up with my teammates at De Anza to discuss what to do with our team and stuff. Not much happened, really.
When I got home, I was just basically stressing out on hw. I have wayy too much! I gave up around 11 and headed off to sleep.
Bus10: Our team is #1 in our planet! Yay! But it doesn't mean we're #1 in our class.. which we aren't.
Poli01: I went to the extra credit help session. The TA's are so cool! We stayed for about 20 minutes, but they gave us an hour worth of points. They also answered our questions and stuff. Class was pretty good. I was dozing off towards the end though...
Math51: Midterm! I'm pretty sure I did really well on it. I mean, I HAVE to right? I already took that friken class. Lol
When I got home, I decided to watch RENT. It's actually really good the second time! I liked it. I also decided to go take Karate today. Just did pad work and conditioning, argg I'm so out of shape. Bleh. I just watched some tv when I got home and slept.
Today, I was going to go to Veggielution, but I set my mindset that it was going to rain, so when I woke up, it wasn't raining... I ended up not going anyways.. I feel bad now. But I need rain boots! maybe I'll buy some when I go hang out with Geoff. Session with Brent today!
It's amazing how a few days could change your life. Recap:
Yesterday, I began working on my Lemon Tart for MOM. After I made the short dough, my back started hurting like crazy! Long story short, I ended up getting in contact with Brent to help me with it. I was going to have a session with him before the dinner, but I rescheduled it to next week. Anyways, around 11:30, I headed out to buy Pearl Drinks and food from Tapx so I could treat out Allyson for being there when I really needed it... And to Wilson who asked for some. Lol. I'll get you something next time Axell, I have no more money!
When I got to the high school, I was mobbed by a bunch of juniors who attacked me with their hugs. Especially from Jen. LOL! But anyways, before I left school, I went to visit MOM. We talked for a bit then I left. When I got home, Kevin picked me up and we went to Chipotle's, then to Patty's, then to AW, the sort of adventuring, then back home. After an hour or so at home, I left to go to Bucca de Beppo for dinner with former classmates; Lynn and Serena. We had such a great time... Especially sitting next to a family with a screaming baby. Oh the joy.. But we did have a great time though. We talked and talked, I think Lynn had a thing for our waiter. After, we went to the small bakery nearby and checked out their goods. Then we went to Coffee Society and chatted there till it started pouring rain.
After a few hours, Lynn went home and Serena and I went to PCI to visit our chefs. We took Chef's bench scraper and said HI to Chef Stephany. Fun times. around 9, we decided to just go home. Not much happened afterwards.
Today, I woke up and began to finish my tart. It's finally complete! I just need to chill it more so it could seize. While I was playing rockband, I got a phone call from Pebble Beach. So, they offered me a proposal, after they do background checks and drug screening, they'll offer me a job if everything goes well. Yes! I have no worries now. I'm so excited!
So yea, plans for today: Give Pie to Mom, Go have drinks with Amanda, Karate, home. Busy day! Sorta..
I can't use weebly with my Droid! FAIL. lol. So yesterday, I went to the Verizon store with my parents. I originally came in with the mindset of getting a blackberry. But since the "Buy One Get One Free" offer only worked for same or lower priced items, getting the Blackberry wouldn't have worked if my dad wanted to get his free phone. Well... the Blackberry Storm would have worked but it SUCKS. So instead, the salesman convinced us to get the Droid. I was really iffy, but my parents really wanted me to get it, they said, "If we pay 30 a month for internet, you might as well get the Droid." So I was like, hmm.. alright I'll get it. SO yea! I got the Droid, with a case, a charger and a bluetooth. Sweet! Lol.
Today, I watched Alice in Wonderland with Jen, Allyson, Kevin and Dee. I really liked it. It was so trippy! 3-D baby! Good thing I know Hoan, he hecka gave me a discount. We also went to Chipotle's for dinner. Delicious, even though I was the only one who ordered...
After the movie, we just chilled in the car, then when everyone left, I dropped off Jen and went home.
I should sleep early! Blake's Graduation is tomorrow and I need to really get ready for it! Eek! Lol.
First day of CHOCOLATE and CANDY CONFECTIONS!! It was so awesome. Serena and I are pro at tempering chocolate now. We made Almond Rocher and Four Brothers today. Nom nom! I can't wait for our final final, we get to present all the chocolate we make!
More issues with Nancy... Ehh, not a shock huh? I'm gonna tell the whole class tomorrow that I think that we should do our own dishes. I'm gonna say it straight up, no sugar coating, and if I have to, I'll probably put Nancy on blast. But that's only if she's pissing me off as I'm trying to speak.
Blake cancelled on me at the last minute. Oh well... He got called to work unexpectedly. But I guess the good news is that I went with my original plan and hung out with Axell instead? We were planning to play some basket ball but the courts were full and the HS courts were dark... So we ended up just going to Allyson's place and just chatting with her. We left around 8:40 though, that when her dad came home. Axell stayed at my place till 9:30 and we just talked about random stuff. Then he left.
What a spontaneous day... sorta. Lol. Why is everyone in such a bad mood? I guess that's what happens in life.
