I woke up at 6 AM, got ready and met up at the school. Patrick was hecka late! Lol. So we left around 7 and arrived at the Santa Clara Convention Center near Great Mall. That was where The Red Canvas premier was held at. Once we got inside the vacinity, we put out stuff down and chilled for about 10 minutes or so. When KJN Ernie arrived, all of us helped him unload the truck and finish setting up everything. After that we just chilled a bit and then it was time for all the staff to head off into a seperate room.
In the room there were tables and chairs and stuff, but not enough for everyone. KJN Terry Lee talked to us about stuff and made us sit in groups; school owners, managers, program directors, and intructors. We had to write about the 12 things that we need to do as an instructor. Later, we just dicussed it and heard the other group's comments and stuff and what they would expect from another group.
After that long and boring discussion, 3rd degrees and up had to go judge candidates while the others went to a seminar with Master "Sugar", I forgot his name. But he taught us some really neat stuff. Pretty fun. We had a 5 minute break then we went back and learned some Judo. That one was... Interesting. Lol. Shelby, Mariah and I are so mean! Lol. That lesson, I must say, was quite boring. I'm seriously gonna get breast cancer. Tear. Anyways, after judo, we went back into the main room and watched some of the candidates get judged. Andrew got 1st place and Audith won 3rd! Woot! Milpitas represent! Haha. We hecka cheered for them. I'm so happy milpitas is so prideful of who we are and we show it. No one else cheered for their school except for us. Ok so after that, we had another judo seminar with the same teacher.
Then the fun part came after judo. We had a seminar with Pressure Points! Lol. Its hecka fun. When I was partners with Shelby, I couldn't find the pressure point above her collar bone so she asked the master to help her and he grabbed her arm and hecka pushed on her pressure point. Lol. Then he did it to me! Ow. Haha. My arm was like deadish. Iono, that was a fun seminar.
The seminar after, we learned from a escrima master. All the stuff he taught us was similar to what we've learned as curriculum. That was was kinda fun but dangerous b/c there's no room to swing your stick. Lol.
After that seminar, it was basically the end. We were supposed to do a demo, but the Milpitas staff didn't go to the practice so we didn't particiate in it. We just hid. Lol. There was demo with all the masters in it. Omg, they're crazy! Espcially the escrima master. He's hella fast! But I heard that that was slow for him, but he moves like friken lightening! Dang. Lol. After that demo, The Staff did a demo, then the action team demoed. It's the same routine over and over again. Bleh. Ok so basically, it took forever till we left boot camp. We were supposed to be done by 2, but he was running on philipino time and we ended almost at 3.
After boot camp, we were about to leave but Danyelle and Allan Dale were talking, then Allan Dale came up to us and was like "I don't want to go anymore". Friken Danyelle, she said something to him to make him feel bad. Omg. I don't like her. Anyways, Shelby made Allan Dale go back and talk to her because she's not gonna leave without him. I guess everything went well because he ended up going with us. We went to St. John's burger joint with Donald and KJN Jason from Arizona. It was delicious! Yum yum. That was pretty fun. We went home around 5 and Allan Dale, Shebly, Patrick and I just chilled at the studio and talked. We basically told Allan Dale on how we disapprove of his insane girlfriend and that he needs someone better. We all really don't like her. But I'll rant about her later.
I went home around 6 and chilled and relaxed at home. Then I showered and got ready to go to Caitlyn's birthday. When I arrived at Stephanie's house, no one was there! I called Shain and Chen but none of them picked up the phone. I ended up finding out that they were in the living room. Shian and I went into a different room and talked. She's hecka lucky! She got to travel to most parts of Europe. Hecka Jealous! Lol. We're gonna travel to Spain and France one day. Yay! Anyways, kids kept coming in and bothering us so we ended up walking to the park near her house. Omg, when we were walking, a car honked at us and some guy hecka stared at us while driving by. So annoying. So when we got to the park, we just talked some more and it was getting hecka dark so Shian called Kent to pick us up. She told him we were lost and he was seriously gonna pick us up but she was like "WAIT let me call you back!" Haha. We had to walk to Morril Middle. While we were walking, another car honked at us and some guy was like "HEY BABY!" and calling out to us. Ugh. people are annoying. Maybe I should stop wearing short shorts and a tank. But anyways, we got to Morrill and she called Kent and Alvin. After they picked us up, we went to Yoswirl and chilled for a little. Then Kent drove us home. OMG Hecka funny, when we got into the parking lot of Yoswirl, Kent hecka ran the curb. LOL. Alvin was like, "After you get your license, all bets are off." Which is pretty much true. Lol. After we arrived back at Stephanie's house Alvin and Shian had a "music battle". Alvin and Kent has hecka good taste in music. They introduced me to Artic Monkeys, The Hush Sound, Mae, and The Fratellis. There were more but I don't remember. I wish I remembered. It was pretty good. We just youtubed hecka songs and they eventually had to leave to go to a party, so it was just Shian and I. We ended up going home at 12. Once I got home, I went straight to bed. So tired.

"You can't blame anyone but yourself" That's what I've been craving to tell him when he said that the Black belts were a bunch of IDIOTS. I am well aware of their lack of knowledge of the curriculum only because they have either recently graduated or never have been taught the material. But seriously? Calling black belts idiots especially if you can't teach the material with good technique and everything? That's what got me mad. He teaches these group of students like they're worth nothing. He DARES to call it HIS class when rightfully it's not. He's supposed to be a "role model" to Allan Dale when in fact he isn't a model or a follower. It ticks me off when he SITS there while teaching. You know how much trouble you'll get into if you SIT DOWN while teaching? Let alone mingle with parents? The one thing that he said today besides making fun of the black belts was that as adults class was beginning, he was complaining on how tired he was. I was thinking dude seriously? you only taught ONE class and your friken tired? but I actually said "You're tired? Patrick has been here since 3 teaching so he should be the one tired." And Patrick was like "Yea, I went on a 20 mile bike ride today" and He has JUST the DECENCY to say "I don't care what you do outside of Karate, I've been sitting home drinking a 2 litre and working out my arm. It MUST be working because it seems to get lighter." It just kind of pissed me off that He is complaining about how exhausted he was and how he's so inconsiderate. It gets me so frustrated seeing him getting paid for sitting around, making fun of students, and mingling with parents. First off, I think his way of teaching is so different that it's terrible. He hinders the students instead of helping them. Second, I hate that he dares to call the students his. He can't even teach them correctly. Third, he always sits down, talks boisterously, and walks around as if he's the head honcho. He's a higher ranking belt, yes, but he's not the boss. I feel that he needs to be careful about what he does because it's not that hard to fire him. He's just lucky that Allan Dale has a kind heart and I feel that he's taking advantage of him. He knows that Allan Dale wont yell at him or scold him or whatever, that's why he does the things he do. Seriously though, if he was under my employment (which he isn't), he'd be gone in a second. I don't deal with shit like that. I know I'm always saying that "Oh, he's still a good person and all" but all of his actions revolve around his personality and it makes me dispise him no matter how much I don't want that to happen. Your students are a reflection of yourself, that is what I have learned. No matter how much I don't like working, I still make it to the days I work unless I absolutely cannot go; busy days or vacation, But I have never not gone to work just because I didn't want to show up. He, on the other hand, doesn't go to work just because. Or that's what he told me that day he came to pick up his cupcakes. He said distinctly "I don't want to go to work today, maybe I'll call in." And I felt bad, not for him of course, but to Allan Dale. Like I said, taking advantage.
But anyways, that's my rant of the day. I swear that I'm gonna explode on him one day. I don't care who hears, he needs to seriously learn especially if he's really from the "old school" days. Seriously.
I'm pretty disappointed in you guys. I go out of my way to take you guys out. I try and make this your best summer yet. I drive you guys everywhere, even when it was still illegal. But honestly, I never get anything back in return. You guys never ask me if I need help or be considerate of how I feel. You just expect it. Like the other day, when I visited you guys at school, I had to go somewhere but you wanted to pick up Kikay. Random? You didn't even ask you just assumed that I'd do it. Then I had to go to my dad's shop and you guys just tagged along. At first I was alright with it, no harm, but when we got there and I had to sort out paperwork, the two of you guys just sat on the computer and basically i g n o r e d me. That kinda got me mad, especially since I was having trouble pulling out the files from the file cabinets and when I had to pick up all the paper on the ground. I'm disappointed in you guys. I go out of my way to pick you up, drive you home, take you places and I never receive anything back in return. I'm not talking about gifts, but maybe a little more gratitude would be nice. I hate it when you guys tell people about my driving. I'm not a bad driver, I just drive really fast. If you guys have a problem with that, then don't get in my car. I hate it when other people go up to me and say, "So I heard that your a bad (dangerous) driver." I ask who told them that and they say you. It's not funny, it's actually hurtful. I know my car, therefore I know my limits, if I was going to put lives in danger, I wouldn't drive you guys around or I wouldn't drive. Period. I just hate it when you guys talk about stuff like that though. I don't care if your joking, you never considered what I thought. All in all, I like driving you guys around but if I'm only going to be a taxi driver for you guys, then I'm going to start charging gas money and I don't want to do that. If you guys arn't going to be more considerate then I'll stop driving you guys. People actually notice that I take you guys around too much and they are concerned.
Anyways, enough of that stuff. My day yesterday was alright but then it turned out to be fun. I'm just gonna skip the beginning because most of it was in the paragraph above.
After karate, Kim, Allan Dale, Brandon, Trevor, Shelby, Jose, Patrick, and I all went to BJ's in celebration of Kim's last day in California!! She's going to NY! I'm jealous but scared for her at the same time. I hope she'll be okay. If anything happens, I'll be there, first plane out. Just call me Kim. OMG I'm gonna miss her! At least I'll still be able to call. I can't believe that TWO of my best friends are going off to vacation! Well technically Kim if going for school... BUT STILL.
Anyways, at BJ's it took them a long time to seat us and serve us too. The food was good. I got grilled chicken pasta. Super filling. So Patrick ordered these beer tasters thingy and he got a Blonde, Ale, Red Head, and a Brunette and he liked the Blonde the best. Then we had the most interesting convo with him. We were talking about Chimpanzees and for the longest time I didn't know how they looked like, but I just Google them and this is how a chimpanzee looks like:
Aww cute much? Lol. That's what I've been picturing the WHOLE time, but they kept telling me I was wrong, maybe I just described it incorrectly. LOL. But yea. Trevor's hecka funny. He says the solution to everything is to "Punch them in the face!" Haha. I'm totally stealing that now. I took pictures from BJ's but the printer doesn't work so I can't upload it. Poo. Having no camera sucks. Does it really take this long for them to send me a new one? Like seriously? I feel Incomplete without my camera! Sad. Yup. Today, I'm planning to stay home. Maybe I'll hang out with the guys or something. Iono.
Omg! I had a dream that I told them and then one of them told their mom and their mom hates me now. And then I had another dream that I told them again but everything turned out OK. Iono, I just had to say that.
