Wednesday:
     This one I'm going to write out properly. Keke.
     So I woke up around 5:30 AM and got ready to go to Pebble Beach. Timmy came over and drove us there. So much fun. I kept freaking out because I thought that we missed the exits, but Timmy's just a really good driver.
     So I took my drug test, went to the HR Building, signed paperwork, went to orientation for 4 hours. SORRY TIMMY! (He went to all of the destinations in 17 mile drive. He did a photoshoot for Milo too! So sweet) Anyways, when i got out of orientation, he was waiting for me, then he drove me to the payroll place so I could get my ID card and stuff. Then I went to the Inn at Spanish Bay to talk to Vicki and Chef Anastasia. I asked tons of questions. When I got out, Timmy drove us back to the HR place so I could get my keys. That was our final stop which ended around 2ish?
     Anyways, we took a drive around 17 mile, then to Carmel-by-the-Sea. I love that beach. We chilled there for a while. Then we went back in town and ate at Internation Cusine. Yum! Timmy told me stories about his 1029479283570392481 different girlfriends. Lol! Just kidding, he's only had about 6. For me, only 2. What a difference.
     On the ride home, I basically KO'd. I feel bad though because I didn't keep Timmy company. Thank you for driving! When we got home, Timmy and I chilled in my room all brain dead and whatnot. Darren and Wilson eventually came over and they all just watched me pack.
     It was tough to say good bye, but I did it anyways. The hardest to depart from was Timmy. Immamissyou! <3 Two months almost seems impossible!
     Shortly after that, I left to pebble beach. Their city lights are beautiful! My roommates are Anna and Lauren. After I settled in for a bit, they invited me out to watch the midnight premier of The Last Airbender. Seriously, I was drained! I had to fall asleep a few times. I thought that movie was good... but then again, I think a lot of movies are good when they're not. Don't ask for my opinion! We didn't get home till 2! I definitely KO'd.

Today:
     I immediately woke up around 8 today. I saw Timmy's "Good Morning!" text, but I ended up forcing myself to go back to sleep before I would respond. When I woke up at 9, I just went on the internet and stuff. Then Anna showed me the way to work.
      WORK! Chef Anastasia started me off with making a flourless chocolate cake! GAHH. Lol. It looks soo good though. After that, She let me help her with her wedding cake. Keke. yesh! My first day and I got to help with something big! She was like, "I know you have good attention to detail". So awesome.
     I also made passionfruit curd (YUM!) and chocolate pudding. She also let me sauce 43 plates for the dinner time. I feel so privileged! haha. By the time it was 7:30, I was out and on my way back to the apartment.
     I didn't do much when I got back. Just watched some Vampire Diaries, sort of chatted, then the girls went to bed early b/c of work. Lala. Nothing to do. I'm hungry again! There's nothing to eat!!! Till tomorrow.

     The day at the beach yesterday was the SHIT!

RECAP:
     Woke up @ 8. Got some reading for polisci done. Picked up Clarice and headed over to my classmate's house for our "study group" meeting around 12. We took some group pictures of us as proof that we met up, then we left after about 5 or so minutes. I took Clarice home, then went home and cleaned out my car a bit.
     Once it was 1:30, the guys (Perry and Hieu) showed up and we left to go to Sharon's place. Upon arrival, Sharon and Vince hopped in my car and we went to a nearby tapioca joint to grab some snacks before leaving. I must thank Perry for paying for my food (although he did owe me to start with). I ordered the Crispy chicken combo (chicken + milk tea). So delish! Especially after a hard day's work of no food.
     Seacliff Beach! It's so windy there. I kind of wish we went to Carmel b/c the sand is much finer and cleaner. This beach had a bunch of rocks and twigs in it. It kind of sucked, but that's life.
     So many people were there! I was shocked. I'm so glad I went though. It was so much fun. Sharon and I started off by wading in the water. Then she decided to be a stripper and got down to her bikini. Sharon went full out in the water with Sherwin. Elizabeth, Eugene, Jasmine and I decided to not get fully wet and walked around in the water for a bit.
     After that, Sharon and I joined the guys and played a game I believe they called "God". That's where the ball as to be kicked 3 times consecutively, after the 3rd kick, someone grabs the ball and pegs it at someone. Pretty fun! Albert is definitely a beast. I got to peg Perry in the back! Bitchin! Haha.
     A few rounds of that later, we then transitioned to tackle football. If I remember correctly, the teams were:
1- Darren, Akash, Richard, Elizabeth, Tiana, Nhat, Van, Alan, David, Vince, and Kevin.  
2. Albert, Hieu, Eugene, Andrew, Tuan, Edward, Alex Tu, Wilson, Sharon, Alex G, and I
     I definitely felt that chicken in my stomach later on. It was pretty fun yet tiring. I got to tackle some people! Eugene and Richard were definitely at it! Richard mauled Eugene a bunch of times, but in the end, Eugene broke Richard's glasses by tackling him. LMAO! Also, there was some random dude from Alberquerque who played with us. He's pretty good!
    The game ended shortly after a few guys almost ran over a baby. Elizabeth, Sharon and I took some pretty randomass/funny jumping and posing pics.

     Omg! Tuan, Kevin, and Van play the guitar. I swear to god, I was in love for the longest time. They were all free styling it and everything too. Amazing. We all shared Van's Classical guitar. I got to showed them my noobie skills! Haha. I'm so gonna ask Kevin to teach me. He recommended some songs for me to learn. I'm currently on More Than Words - Extreme (cover by Frankie J). 
     Anyways, we sang to Elizabeth. She opened her gift from all of us (iPod nano in Black) and we just chilled around some more. By the time it was 10ish, we all packed up and headed back to San Jose.
     The traffic was terrible! Tuan was following me and he drives like an effin grandma! Lol. Darren was leading, Edward then followed behind. I followed behind Edward and Tuan behind me. But since Tuan was so slow, I had to slow down so much in order for him to not be lost. I got there perfectly fine though. We all met up at Denny's and got our own separate room. Sweet!
     Since Sharon and I didn't have any money, we kind of sat there and chatted with each other while trying to withstand the temptation of food. Everyone was basically high off of sleep. It was fun while it lasted. We stayed at Denny's till 2 AM!
     I then dropped off Sharon, then went home. I almost immediately KO'd when I got home.

Today:
     4 hours of sleep+Cotillion Practice. It was fun today, but not a lot of people showed up. After that, I met up with Jenann and Kat and we carpooled together to the Boiling Crab. The wait was 2 hours! Ughh. Kim, Anthony, Tiffany, Kjn, Jen, Ben, Alex, Jenann, Kat and I just chilled outside for about an hour or so waiting for Jen's friends to come. When they came, we then decided on where to eat at.
     Red Lobster! This was my second time going. My first time was when I went on a date with Daniel. I ordered the Crab Alfredo. It was pretty good! They also gave us bread, which was absolutely amazing. I couldn't stop eating it!
     Luncheon was fun. Its definitely amazing on how different we all are now. We're constantly changing and growing up! It's only in a matter of time when we all go our separate ways once again for college. I love my karate family! Absolutely love.
     When I got home, I did some stuff for my grandma, then KO'd on the bed. I slept till 8! Lol. When I woke up, I got one more reading article done. Now I'm trying to stall as much as possible. I'm not that sleepy right now, so maybe I'll do as much HW as possible by tomorrow. Blah! Hungry is overcoming me, but I must prevail! (12:43AM)

P.S. There were some pretty dodgy photos of me online, so I untagged myself. Sorry fellas! I untagged most of the pics where I had my hands on my hip. Whatcaniay? It's my favorite pose? Haha.
 
 
So much to recap on! Quick recaps!

Thursday:
     Veggielution-Water sunflowers and weeded corn. Helped Mark and Will with the irrigation system, that took a hecka long time!
     Stopped by PCI, Will picked me up and we went to Panera Bread for luncheon. I eat so slow.
     Santa Cruz! Nice, chill ride up there. We hit traffic, but it was alright. When we got there, we boarded around a bit, checked out the boardwalk and had a game of bowling. I hella owned him; I'm getting better! We hit some board shops, but was unlucky with the wheels.
     Will got a ticket for not having a permit in a certain parking spot! I still feel bad to this day, but he was like "whatever" about it. We then went to Santa Cruz Board Shop in this random-ass area. It was really nice though. The guy there was definitely cool. So many wheels to choose from! Same goes with bearings! I ended up buying $40 Blue candy-like wheels (69 mm, 80 a) Fuck yeaahhh!! The guy who worked there put them in for me too! He was so awesome, I know for a fact that he didn't try to rip me off or anything b/c Will asked him if I need more raisers, but he said that I could, but my board was fine, plus it costs money.
     After that, we went to explore the beaches. He took me to Scotts Creek Beach (or something like that). It was super windy and partial deserted. The sand was nice, but we only stayed for a little bit b/c the wind was going insane. After a few more stops to the homless farming community and to the whale bones, we then headed back home. I had such a fun time. I liked that it was all random and spontaneous.
     Cotillion practice! I was late by like 10 or so minutes, but I immediately partnered up with Ferly and got some of the moves down. I missed out on so much! We did pretty well! After practice, Cosmo helped me out a little more, then we went to Starbucks for a little chat. We talked till it was almost 9! Lol.

Friday:
     Woke up and did some math homework.
     Dress shopping! I met up at Jen's around 11, but Allyson and Kirsten didn't come till 12ish. Fail! Lol. When we got to Valleyfair, we met up with Erin and Junette at Macys' juniors. It's not dress season anymore! We couldn't find dresses anywhere! We ended up just trying on a few dresses, then heading out.
     Yum yum! Coldstone for the win! Right Allyson? (winkwink). Everyone else went to get some froyo while Allyson and I decided to be cool and get Coldstone. The guy who served us was this dude from my polysci class, but he dropped out. I was like "Allyson! I KNOW HIM!" and she told me to talk to him so I was like "HELL NO" at first. But after she ordered, I decided to just chat with him. He's pretty cute and pretty nice. Too bad he was such a douche in class. He annoyed the hell out of me... I almost forgot to pay for my ice cream because I was talking so much. Lol! Fail times 2. Allyson really thinks he's good looking though. He's just a white guy with gages. Lol!
     After, Allyson and I looked for the others but they were gone, so we decided to sit down and talk. After that, we searched for the others while looking for dresses at the same time. No luck. Allyson, Jen, Kirsten and I ended up going to Forever 21 to shop. I bought $80 worth of clothes! It's so worth it! We then went shoe shopping and found something that was really nice. It was the same heels I got for prom, the white ones. I'm going to bring them to Cosmo to see if they are okay to use, if so, we're gonna order it in a different color. I hope it works!
     Crossroads afterwards. Bought myself a nice vest/cardigan thingy. I took everyone home afterwards, then went to my brother's band picnic thingy. Jen came there with her mom, ironically. Lol! I'll try to make this long story short.
     Dirty park bathrooms, walked to Wilson's to use bathroom. No Wilson. Walked back to park. Chilled with Jen. Momma needed to use the bathroom so I walked with her to Wilson's. Yay for Wilson! He was there. I played with his 2 dogs. Then Wilson and I took Kobe for a walk to the park. Dog likes ball. Chilled with Wilson, Wilson goes home. Chill with Jen, Jen goes home. Have heart to heart with youngest brother. Then we all go home.
     After that, around 10ish, I hung out with Darren and Wilson. Go to Walmart, then to Borders, then go find Eugene. We see skunk and run for our lives. Chilled outside for a bit (no Eugene). Go home. Brawled with Wilson and Darren till 1 in the morning. Sleep

Saturday:
     HOMEWORK + Clean the house.
     Picked up Wilson, Michelle and Perry. BART TO SF!
     Eat @ Sam's Diner. The service was SLOW today. I have no clue why, but the food was good.
     WICKEDDDDDDDDDD. I liked it the first time. But it's still good either way. I love this musical!
     3 hours later, we walked around SF. Went window shopping, got Jamba Juice. Chugged the drink and barted back home.
     When I got home, I tried to do homework, but instead had a Brawl party in my room with all of my cousins and brothers. Effin` insane. I suck at this game! Yay for ice cream cakes! Brawled some more, then talked to my Aunt about my future. Shian came later! We had girl talk, then I drove Maggie, Remy and Wayne home with Shian and Calvin in the car. Mogos afterwards! Saw Hammy, Weesona and Eugene. Nomnom, short ribs sliders.
     Went home. Watched Ninja Assassin with Shian, Jordan and my brothers... Bloody ass movie. Rain is so hot though, but it was too gory for me. Afterwards, Shian and I talked some more, then she went home. Sleep!
 
     Sunday:
     Homework ALL DAY. I took a nap though. Nothing eventful today besides homework.. Yay...

Picture
I liked the dress I had on. But look at my badass tanline...
 
 
Thursday:
     Veggielution! We did soo much! First off, I helped Will with moving tomato plants. Then, we went to the worm bins with 2 others and started weeding everything. Then this girl and I started to feed the worms with newspaper scraps, then with this disgusting old food from a Vegan restaurant, then we put coffee grounds on top of that and lastly, added more scraps. We then washed the buckets and I left a little after that.
     I also had a dentist appointment today. I thought my right side of my gums were infected, but the surgeon was just like "Brush harder" so I was like "Uh... okay..." I don't want to question the doctor, but I kind of am.. Iono.
     After that, I headed over to work. I got to work with this guy name Abe, a girl named Julliet, and that super cute Richard guy, So, I first started off with Juliette and we got done really fast. Then Richard picked us and Abe up and we tackled another set of neighborhoods. Then, I got to work with Richard and that was pretty fun. We to talking and everything. We kept making fun of Dennis and everything. I also told him about the Teacup Theory and he told me that he lost his "teacup" look b/c he buzzed his hair and now it looks all gangster-like and everything. Pretty funny. Why do all the good looking people smoke? Gross! **Note to self: NEVER wear FLIP FLOPS when campaigning...
     After that, I headed straight to the BAC meet where the only person I really recognized was Alex. I was like "Where the heck is everyone?" Then I call Darren and he tells me that they were waiting for me.. FAIL! Lol. Eventually, everyone showed up (Alan, Darren, Eugene, Bob). We all just chilled around, talked to people, make some new friends, then decided to go in and eat some WingStop. I just ordered fries, nomnom! Lol. We met this guy named Tim who went to Irvington, who knows Kim. Hecka funny! We were trying to see who he knew and he was trying to see who we knew. He knows more people than we do.. obviously.. Lol! After eating, we chilled outside for a bit and took some pictures.
     Eventually, we all left to go bowling. Akash said we had perfect timing when we got there, the lanes just opened. For some reason, we chilled around, THEN decided to pay for shoes and everything. We got lanes 11&12! Effin` Bob! He's such a hustler! He's too good to be playing with us! Lol. I got lucky on my first bowl though, I got a spare. Then I got hella gutters, then I started getting better. The Teams were Bobert (Bob), Mantoy (Darren), Tampon (David) then Axel (Alex), Banh (Me), Kwokiepockie (Eugene) and Singforme (Akash). Bob was the best in the other group and Eugene was the best (and most shocking) in our group. He bowls in such an unorthodox way, but still makes really good hits! It's pure entertainment, laughter, and awesomeness. On the second round, we then decided to just fuck around and bowl some odd way. Bob bowled backwards! Lol. That was hilarious. We also did some other random stuff too, like bowl with our left hand and under our leg. When it was 12, I was forced to go home so I wasn't able to complete my game. Blah, oh well! Free turns for everyone else I guess.
     I just went home after that and watched a little Bones, then bed.

Friday:
     Not much today. I woke up and did some homework, but then I decided that, since I wasn't going to Polisci on Monday, I wasn't going to do hw... I got done with the Lester Brown reading though, all 12 pages...
     I then cleaned parts of the house while watching CSI. I fucking LOVE that show! It's wayy to good. Afterwards, I showered then got ready for work.
     When I got there, I was hella sleepy. I got to meet Mia, Yoriko's daughter. She's really nice. Her and I, plus this older lady named Susan, went out campaigning. It went pretty well. My feet doesn't hurt as badly as it used to. After this first round of houses, Susan dropped us off at a different location and left to go home. I got to this one guy who kept talking to me about how he didn't really support her decisions and stuff. But IONO!! Lol. He was nice, but he kept talking.
     Afterward, Yoriko picked us up and took us back to her place. I left shortly after.
     Now I'm at home, enjoying an episode of CSI. I'm waiting for the KFC to be home.

Tuesday:
     I skipped Veggielution today, instead, I stayed home and did my essay. I finished around 1ish, yeah yeah! Lol. Around 5, I went to Palo Alto to begin my first day of Interning. I got to even work with Yoriko Kishimoto. She's so nice! Lol. We went door to door together, then eventually we split and tackled some houses alone. There were a lot of people who weren't sure on who they would vote for, but I hope this helped their votes.
     I got off of work a little early today, so I stopped by pizza night. Since I couldn't eat anything, I just ordered the pasta instead.Yum! Nothing really eventful at pizza night. Callum and Kevin G was there though. After, we planned to go to the beach, but we changed our plans last minute and went to play pool instead. It was just Akash, Callum, Kevin G, Eugene, Bob and I that went to play. Fun stuff. I'm getting better!

Wednesday:
     School! My only day of school that week. Nothing important at school...
     Cotillion practice ended before I got home, so I just chilled at Darren's house. Eventually, we went to kidnap Kenny, we walked back to Darren's then chilled for a little bit longer. I had to leave though, b/c I was meeting up with Gaudry for our second meeting.
     It took me about an hour to get there! Stupid traffic. When I picked her up, we went to Santana Row and got some pearl drinks. Then we went shopping around and I got some pretty neat things! For dinner, we went to Chilis'. As we were paying the bill, guess who I saw? TONI! Surprise surprise! Lol. She's definitely different than before.
     After paying the bills, Gaudry and I decided to go home on a full stomach with no dessert. I dropped her off and then headed home myself. Not much to do now, but to enjoy an episode of Bones.
