Tuesday:
     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.
    
     Today:
     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....
