Bleh, sorry guys, Weebly won't let me upload photos yet.. how weird!
My day today consisted of yawning, slight focus and talking to tons of people. Business was the usual, nothing really exciting... really.
After business, I went to that study session, then chilled with the guys for a bit, then to polisci. We had to know 15 people in that class, so at the beginning, everyone was scrambling around to know new names. It was pretty funny. We talked about racial oppression and oppression against class. Deep shit.
My teacher (a latino male) basically grew up in America. He graduated #1 in class and went to a super prestigious school, which he graduated 5th in class earning his masters I believe. After that, he wanted to continue to getting a doctorate (?) so he applied to Cal Berkley which accepted him. Basically, De Anza was offering him a part time internship as a professor because he was Latino, so he took that job and after 1 year of teaching, a full time opening was available, which he applied for against about 58 other applicants. Because he was Latino, he got the job. He was the only one at De Anza in the political science area that was a man of color. You might say it is discrimination that he got the job and he deserved it, but that is incorrect. This allowed a sense of opportunity for him and for his students. They had a role model (so to speak) to look up to. This also added to the pool of opinions; without having a diverse team, the thought process would basically be standard. Having a diverse background helped others be open minded about their opinions and beliefs. Many would beg to differ but having professors like this would be a good and positive thing. Some deserve it more than others.
Anyways, Math was boring. Stupid teacher. I think I failed the quiz. After class, we just went home. I actually went to karate to interview people of their race. Michael Grey was there! Omg, I hecka remember when I had the hugest crush on him. It was insane. We're friends now. I got to have deep convos with him on politics and everything. I'm glad we have a similar thought process, although his might be more intelligent of course. I would hate to get into an argument with him. He's a friken genius!
Well anyways, I was waiting to go shopping with Darren, but he was too busy doing hw, so I ended up just driving Michael home, and going home myself. I thought that I wasn't going to shop, but Darren finally responded and we headed towards the mall together.
We "bumped" into Bob at the mall so I got to interview him! He's definitely full of insight so I had a good time interviewing him. Darren and I planned to go to Bed Bath&Beyond, but that stupid fatass led us the wrong way! By the time that we would've hit it, it would have been closed... Oh well. Next time. We just chilled near Bob's work as he was cleaning up. We then walked to my car, which I drove to his car, and just chilled in my car.
We got to some deep conversations, played some scenario games, and also played "would you rather" games. It's fun chillin at night. We stayed for a good hour and a half in my car... until the security guard guy came by and told us we couldn't loiter. Darn that man! So yea, Bob eventually left my car and we went home. I drove Darren home and now I'm here.
I think it's going to rain tomorrow, but I'm not sure. Does that mean there's Veggielution? Well, I guess I'm gonna go anyways. I told Will that if it rained, we could go wheels/bearings shopping together. I just need to find places nearby that sells them... Bleh. It's 10 till 12 and I'm getting tired. Bed time? Hopefully I'll be able to wake up early and do a little research! Night loves.
Oh man, this past weekend has been the best ever!
We left around 8:30 and arrived at Motel 6 (30 minutes away from our destination) at 2 in the morning.
We woke up around 8, got ready and left around 9. We arrived at Universal Studios and got to park in the Frankenstein Parking Garage.
Once we parked, we immediately went straight to City Walk. A band was getting ready to perform and I was instantly in love. We didn't stay long enough to find out who they were though, but honestly, they sounded amazing! Lol. Music = love.
When the gates open, we headed in, got our super awesome Gate A passes and went straight to our first destination: The House of Horrors. It was really scary! Kjn kept laughing at up because Kim and Jen screamed the loudest. I hid behind Kim who hid behind Jen who hid behind Kjn. After that was over, we went to a bunch of other attractions such as The Mummy Ride (times 2), Jurrassic Park ride (which I got SOAKED on. I love the theme song by the way), The Simpsons Ride (times 2 plus is my favorite!), Terminator 2: 3D (Reallyy good), Shrek 4D (ehh, okay attraction), Universal's Animal Actors (pretty awesome), and Water World (which was pretty cool, especially seeing all of those tv show actors).
The last thing we went on was the Studio Tour. That was hecka cool! Pretty fun too. Oh yea, we got the all you can eat pass also. I ate so much food... I feel so bloated and stuff. Bleh! I think that I'll be good with food for a few more days now...
After Universals, we went back to City Walk and did some shopping. I got to buy a Sharks Pennant! Yes! I also got to see The Quiet perform. They're really good! I ended up buying their 2 CDs. After all that excitement, Kjn took us to the Hollywood stars place. It was cool. We got to see all the stars, plus the Chinese theater thing where movie stars watch movie premiers at and have their hand prints cemented to the ground. Pretty awesome! We also stopped by High Voltage Tattoo where LA Ink is located at. Kat Von D wasn't there, but KJn got pictures with Khoi and Aubrey. We also went to the back parking lot and took a pic of the mural of the crew in the back.
We were pretty much exhausted by then so Kjn decided to drive to a hotel to rest up. We ended up going to the Marriott or something. The room was hecka nice!
The next morning, we woke up around 9, went down for some complementary breakfast and went back up, got ready and headed out. The ride home was 5 or so straight hours. We had some sunflower seeds to occupy our time. We also played the alphabet game and some scenario games. Those were really fun. It passed the time by hecka quickly.
When we got to Gilroy, we stopped by Sonics for lunch and headed home. We got home around 3:30, we stopped by Jen's Parent's house first, then I drove my mom's car (with Kim) back home. It's not that bad! lol.
So Kim just chilled at my house for about an hour, then her dad picked her up. After she left, I did some homework, then took a nap for 2 hours. Now, I'm "finished" with my part of homework. Time to sleep!!!
*It seems as though uploading pics aren't working right now. I'll try again tomorrow if anything.
I've had a pretty eventful day yesterday.
I went to Veggielution and harvested 2 buckets of favah beans. My favorite! Lol. Then, I got to work the wash station with Will again. It seems as if everyone had left that morning. There were about 4 workers, but in the end, it was just Will and I left. So him and I worked the wash station and got talking again. I find out new things about him everyday! i love talking to Will, we tend to get into some pretty intellectual conversations also.
After Veggielution, I was about to hang out with Marissa, but she got called into work last minute. Darn! We were gonna go to Carmel by the Sea also! Instead, I just went home and cleaned my car and my mom's car. I just chilled at home after that, picked up my brothers and attempted to do some reading for polisci.
Around 4, I left to go meet up with the juniors at school. We went to St. John's for supper. Yum!!! That place never fails. We were all pretty rushed so we scarfed down our burgers and fries and bolted home. I got a little lost, but thanks to Allyson's droid, we made it to Cotillion practice just in time. This practice was pretty much a fail. Not everyone was there, plus the people who were there were part of the jazz band and they had a concert that same night. So basically, we were left with 3 pairs plus I. We went over the basic steps and reviewed what we learned, then we also learned the Sandwhich contrere (the other sandwhich) and the half sweep (?). Practice ended early since there was no point in furthering on.
Instead of going home, we all ended up going to watch the Jazz performance. The jazz band is realllyyy good. Let's see, after that, we just chilled, then Jen, Chris, Ferly, Dee, Axell, Kevin, Edward and I went to Nobhill. We hung out for a bit, but then I was starting to get real sleepy so I took Dee and Edward to school, and dropped off Kevin, Chris and Jen.
When I got home, I did a few last minute things, showered, then went to bed.
Today, I woke up and immediately began on homework. I think I got to about 3 articles/readings. I'm definitely bringing my laptop with me, hopefully I can get some homework done in solcal.
I'm so excited for today! This is what I'm gonna do...
-Put away laundry
-Pick up SBN Jen from work
-Possibly switch cars with father
-Probably hang out with SBN Jen or something
-Pick up Kim around 5ish
-Wait for KJN
-GO TO UNIVERSAL STUDIOS!
Yeaaaaa. Haha. Anyways, I gotta go and pack now!
p.s. refreshing my page will not magically produce more blogs, it only gives me more pageviews.. In less than 24 hours, my page views went up by 5 times! Amazing! Lolol
My Weebly won’t let me Blog on my Macbook for some reason. I finally get to blog when I use my brother's PC...
School, School, School… After, I went home and watched a bunch of Big Bang Theory. After a few hours, Chris Vu calls and asks if he can come over, so I let him. It was nice seeing him. He really likes to hug though… We just chilled and talked, and played some guitar. After about an hour, he had to leave and that was basically it. Nothing really eventful on Monday… Not that I remember of course. Oh Wait! Will gave me a “purple flying hawaaiian fish” Sticker for my longboard. Yay! Oh, I also baked some coffee cupcakes and formed doughnuts. The cupcakes turned out awful…
Veggielution, like always. I helped them reorganize a bit, then put about 20 sprouted tomatoe plants into pots, fill it with soil, worm castings, and also this bark like thing to protect the castings from turning to clay. Then Mark came around a fertilized everything. There were only 4 of us: Mark, Will, Khanh, and I.
After that, I go home and Immediately started baking a new batch of NEW cupcakes. It’s definitely better, but not perfect yet… I got to bake my cupcakes, fry my doughnuts, and also assemble the cupcake and doughnuts together with chocolate ganauche. De-Lish! Lol.
I brought about 8 to Brent and got my session. Then went home to watch more Big Bang Theory. After a while, I got sleepy and took a 30 minute nap. When I woke up, I dropped my brother off at karate, and I went to Pizza Night. There were a bunch of people this time; Darren, Alan, Vince, David, Thomas, Arnold, Bob, Sharon, Elizabeth, and I. Hecka people! Oh! I gave Thomas 9 cupcake doughnut things. He loved them so much! Lol. I’m really surprised. Pizza night was so much fun! Afterwards, we all decided to go play pool at the Santa Clara Billiards place. I got to ride with Bob on the way there. His ride is so awesome! I really like talk to Bob! When we got there, we got about 3 tables and just started playing. Fun Stuff. I went against Bob, and I lost every. single. time. By the time it was 12, I had to go home so Bob drove Darren, Sharon and I home.
Bob is so funny! After dropping off Sharon, we took the 85 to go home and it was literally empty and super dark. So Bob was like, “OMG! I can do doughnuts!” So he basically he did 2 doughnuts in the middle of the freeway then kept going and hit 110MPH. Hecka crazy!!! It was so much fun though, no lie.
When I got home, I seriously thought that I left my phone in Bob’s car so I ran upstairs, went on FB and found his number, then called him. Long story short, my phone was in my car the whole time and I saved Bob a trip to my house… Lol, fail on my part. I slept around 1.
School. Not much happened. Nothing very eventful… Although, my math teach knows my name… so not creepy… Haha. jk. After school, I went home, ate, then went to Cotillion Practice, which ended HELLA early. Oh well, we just chilled outside for a bit, then all decided to go to Nob Hill. I had to smuggle Edward in my trunk… Lol! So, I hung out with the group for an hour or so, got to talk to Kim on the phone, and then went to hang with Amanda.
When I got to Santana Row, Marissa called me and was like “Where’s Amanda?” So basically Amanda went MIA, but actually was sleeping in her room. FAIL! Lol. So yea, I just went to The Container Store, waited till they come and chilled there. We took these really nice comfy chairs and started rolling ourselves around the place. Eventually, we felt like we were gonna get into trouble so we put the chairs back. It was fun while it lasted. I want to invest in those chairs now…
We had nowhere else to go, so we ended up going to Amanda’s new place. It’s actually really nice. Pretty clean to, which I’m surprised. At the same time I was there, I was making arrangements to hang out with Will. I didn’t expect him to agree to chill tonight but he did. I didn’t get to hang with the ladies for long because I ended up going to the same Billiards place yesterday to meet up with him. Will is really good! He was giving me tips and pointers and stuff. He basically beat me all 10 times we played! Lol. But he’s a good teacher, I’m getting the hang of it. I seriously couldn’t stop smiling though. I was smiling ear-to-ear. Now my jaws hurt.
I had such a great night though. We talked a lot and he was being a gent and paid for the game. I definitely owe him some pastries. Surprisingly, he’s allergic to strawberries! Omg! Howww? It’s the best thing in the world! Lol.
So yea, after that, I went home, showered, and now I’m here blogging. I’m starving though! Midnight snack? Good night!
So I woke up at my usual time when I don't have school; 8 AM. Well, since we don't have cotillion practice at 9 (which have been changed to 1) I had absolutely NOTHING to do, besides homework... which I didn't do. I ended up falling asleep for an hour though to kill time.
At 1, there was cotillion practice. I only stayed for half an hour since I had prior plans.. Well, plans that have been planned for months now, so of course I couldn't turn that down.
Family outing! So much fun! I was late though. Patty coordinated the whole thing! Thanks patty! Love you lots! The people who participated were:
Blue Team: Danyelle, Allison, Patty, Samira
Yellow Team: Diane, Garmin, Sabrina, Jason
Green Team: Kasey, Ricky, Katelyn, Daniel
Red Team: Allan Dale, Bianca, Travis and I.
When I got there, we were just beginning a new activity. It was some water balloon game. We have to put the water balloon in between our necks and transfer it to our teammates like that. This lady that worked for the park came to check up on what we were doing and Patty convinced her to join us. It was hecka funny! It was fun though.
Next game: Fruit by the Foot eat. Basically, patty tied fruit by the foot on to a bo staff and raised it up super high and basically, we have our teammates eat it by lifting them up and stuff. Whoever eats fastest wins. We eventually seperated and paired up with random teammates. It was fun nonetheless.
Next Game: Flag football. Just basic football but with bandannas as a flag. We didn't play much of this because everyone was getting hot, eventually we switched over to Water Wars. Danyelle and I couldn't get our hairs wet so we sat out and were nurses. We just basically had to re spawn anyone that had their "health" (AKA Alkaseltzer) down. So basically, with the bandannas, we tied it to everyone's arms and stuck Alka Seltzer in them. If it starts to fizz, they have to get it replaced. Eventually, no one came back to us, tears. Oh well! I wish I could have been a part of that... Blah.
After that, we packed up a bit and I helped Patty bring the stuff back to her house. Sabrina and I somehow ended up sticking with Patty's dad while everyone else was doing the scavenger hunt. We helped him find a place at the park and help set up everything. About an hour later, the Yellow Team came running in, then the Red, The Green, then finally the Blue (where Patty had to go look for them and pick them up.. LOL!)
After the Scavenger hunt, we all just chilled and ate at the park. Such a beautiful day! Garmin asked Diane to be his girlfriend. SO CUTE! haha. So yea. I got to talk to Jason A LOT this whole time. He's Asian and super cute, but I'm almost certain that he's gay. Oh well! Best friend? He goes to Berkley so I'm definitely down to visit him.
To end the night, we had an epic game of Cider pong. We introduced the little children to a game that's meant for alcohol. It's was fun nonetheless. We took some pictures and went to Patty's house to play Just Dance. I played against Jason and I won of course, just barely. Fun stuff. We looked (and laughed) at some pictures of the day and then everyone eventually went home. I stayed behind with the Nguyen's, Ricky and Jason. Ricky and I had an intense battle of Chess, but he had to leave so Daniel took over. I was winning with 16 points! But then that DU MA beat me! Haha. Fun stuff though. I declare a rematch! I'm not good at chess anyways..
When I got home, we had another house party (so shocking). I'm just texting Will now. He's pretty funny, and apparently I intrigue him because of the various, yet random, activities I do, such as playing chess and longboarding. He thought that a cotillion was like a rave and he wanted to join in. Lol! Very funny.
Anyways, I should be heading to bed now. I'm getting tired from this super long day. I have to wake up early and do homework too! Blah. Too much to do! I'm gonna stress myself out tomorrow because I'm gonna force myself to do homework. Especially math. Good night! Hopefully, I'll be able to post up pictures later, if Patty uploads it and everything.
i miss the moments when my mom would chaperone for my field trips. I used to love it as a child. Now, it's an honor if they even make time to be part of my life.
Donovan comes up to me and says, "Dude, I know you guys are right for each other. Go for it! I hate seeing him hurt by other girls. Especially his ex that he is chasing after."

Today was definitely an awesome day. It started off with Veggielution of course. I helped water some plants, harvest bok choy, After that, I went to the wash station and got to wash the veggies with Will. We definitely got talking. It was really nice and funny. He told me things that he doesn't tell his friends or random people in general so I definitely felt special. I found out that he used to play the flute, he taught himself the saxaphone, he's a pool shark and he londboards! After washing/weighing, it was time to leave so before we left, we both pulled out our longboards to compare. We're definitely going to go riding together plus, he's gonna come with me to a longboard shop to buy new bearings and wheels. I'm totally looking forward to that. After our longboard talk, we exchanged numbers and headed seperate ways.
I then went to PCI to pick up my chocolates and to visit CHEF ALEX. Yeaa! He wants me to help him out in his factory. Hopefully I have time... I got to talk to a few people on my way out.
When I got home, I got to relax a bit. I also watched some Big Bang Theory and cleaned my room. My favorite already is Sheldon. This show is pretty hard to comprehend, but it's pretty funny already. Too much smart talk...
Around 3:30, I headed out to Palo Alto because I volunteered for the Yoriko Kishimoto campaign crew. So, I was supposed to meet with this guy, Richard, but he ended up not being there. He told me to go and talk to Dennis instead. So when I rang the doorbell (to Yoriko's super old, extremely large, definitely beautiful house), this guy who looks like he's around 21-25 opened the door and that was Dennis. So he escourted me into her home and talked to me about what I was going to do. So basically, We would both go door to door and ask people if they were going to vote for Yoriko and if they are unsure, give them information about her. I was so nervous! He was definitely a chill guy though. One who loves John Mayer, or so it seemed. Lol. So yea, we ran through the drill and he tested me on that. I got a cheat sheet to work with too. So later on, he asks me how old he looks like. I said 21-25 but he's actually 34 or something like that. I was like "DANG YOU OLD GEEZER!" haha. We just kept bashing on each other afterwards. So when we came up to the street we were supposed to work with, I followed him to a few houses and saw what he was doing, we then split off. He gave me a list of houses to go to and I slowly tackled them. Dennis is a chill guy. Too bad he's OLD, has a gf and smokes. But he's definitely a great person to hang out with. He was like "Man! I hope you come back! I definitely love your personality, we need more of those in our campaign group, we don't have many people like you." So I was like "SWEET!" Haha. Well.. what can I say? I actually get that a lot (no lie/trying not to brag or be cocky or whatever).
I'm definitely glad I went. I was pretty iffy at first, because of my friken lazy ass, but I was like "Well... I told Richard that I was going to do it, so it would be pretty messed up if I didn't go for it." So I went and I had an awesome experience. I'm definitely looking forward to doing it again, even though it was pretty scary at first. The experience is definitely a plus, it also will help me with my speeches and with stage fright. But yea. Since I was doing this strictly for voluntary reasons, he was scared that I wasn't going to come back. I probably will though, if my schedule allows me to... Plus, the Standford Shopping Center is nearby. I hear SPRINKLES! Lol.
(Note to self: Bring fruit by the foot for Dennis [the menace] next time I come... Hopefully I remember)
So, we exchanged numbers and then I had to go home since it was my sister's 22nd birthday. When I got home, everyone was waiting for me (stupid traffic...) We started devouring all the pizzas, breadsticks, french fries and ice cream there was. Such fatasses we are. Then we watched Cash Cab as a family and part of Jeopardy. These are the days that I cherish the most.
As I'm being lazy at home, after a super long day, Kevin randomly calls me and forces me to go out to Mogos. I was forced to go against my own will! Wilson Yu came to pick me up and we all chilled at Mogos with a bunch of karate people. It last less than an hour before everyone ate and left. It was alright, but I definitely got to talk to Wilson Yu and catch up with him and everything, which was nice.
It's finally time for me to RELAX and go to sleep! I gotta clean the house in the morning since I'm getting my hair done tomorrow. So much to do, I'm such a busy person! This sucks, but is good at the same time. I'm getting better at guitar... sorta...
