8/30: -Nothing really eventful happened. We just prepped for the hugeass party for the next day. -Grocery shopping with Anna. We fail; we were litereally running from aisle to aisle across the grocery store to get out things. -Watched the Last Song with the roomies. It's so predictable and cheesy! Miley Cyrus' character gets so angry at the most ridiculous things! It kinda got me all grrrr....

8/28: -Work! There was so much to do, but it felt like it went by hecka slowly. -Watched 2 movies with the roomies; Dead Like Me and Whip It. Whip it made me realize how much I miss Timmy. Tear.
8/29: -Work up super early from all of Timmy's spam text msgs. Lol! -Went home by 1 to look for Clover. -Searched for Clover with Hieu and posted up fliers and stuff. -Napped with Timmy at home. -Went back to Monterey. -Watching Big Fat Liar with Anna.
Blah! Work at 12 tomorrow. 3 more days and it's overrrr! -Banhzaii
8/23: -All I remember is that Timmy came over, we hung out until 4, that's when he left for work. -Alan, Albert, Darren and Wilson came over. We went to our spot, drank some tapx, ate some In N Out and watched Zombieland. Good movie!
8/24: -Timmy came over! -Hungout with Kevy; kidnapped Patty, drank some RootbeerFloat on a hot summer's day, went to Vfair, and got some froyo. -Went "shopping" with Timmy at Michaels and Walmart. Then enjoyed a crepe + some banana smoothie with babe at QCup -Took a nap at my place. -Marchingband family Potluck! They don't look too shabby! -Went home; babe helped me pack and load my car. Imma miss home!
8/25: -Work! Got some of Roy's stuff done, then Ice Cream Machine for me! It was hard resisting temptation, but I did it for you babe! -Went cruising around Monterey. I found out that it's one giant circle. No matter how hard I tried to get lost, I always got back to a place that I was familiar with!
8/26: -Work! Drama Drama Drama! Not on me though, One on Katie and tons on Suzanne. Bleh. -Slowassday! -Phonedate with Kim! I like how we don't talk for days, because we have so much more to tell; Kim! I'm so happy for you. I know that he's going to treat you right, and if he doesn't, I'll deal with him. But I know that I wont have to. You truly deserve this! I hope you guys stick it out and last a long time. Long distance is tough, but you can accomplish anything if you set your mind to it! -Moviedate with Anna! I originally wanted to watch My Sister's Keeper, but they didn't offer it online, then I wanted to watch Sliding Doors, but that wasn't there either. So we just ended up watching this movie called Timer. It's pretty good! I really liked it.
"If a clock could count down to the exact moment you meet your soul mate, would you want to know?"
8/27: -Work. I was cramping so much today that I couldn't bear it anymore. I was allowed to leave early. Yes! -I decided that I wouldn't do anything at the apartment besides watching tv shows and sitting down. Which doesn't really help with my cramps... so I went to Carmel in search of Sur La Table -Found it after 10 minutes! Splurgeeeeeed! -Michaels afterwards and bought a corkbottle. -Target! They don't carry chocolate covered pretzels! Do you know how disappointing that is? -When I came back, I ate some hamburger helper and watched Bones. -Clover is missing, so I would sincerely appreciate it if you guys went out to search for him. I called my brothers to go look, but they're too friggen lazy, so I talked to my dad and he said that he'll look tomorrow. But then I whine and complained, which didn't work, until I started to cry. Then he said he'd go look for him. Yay! I hope my dad found Clover! I was about to up and leave and go home to look for him too! No lie. So yea... I hope Clover comes home, safe and soundly. I hope no one took him away or ran him over. I'd be devastated and pissed at the world. No joke. I really would. Seriously, no matter how annoying Clover can be, I was there when he was a cute little puppy. I watched him grow up and I taught him all of his tricks. I took him to the groomer and to the vet. I showered him and walked him around. Out of everyone in my family, I take care of Clover the most, so I would be really depressed if something bad were to happen... -Banhzaii
8/18 -Chill day with Roberto, Ana and Katie. I made some creme brulee, bread pudding, make a blueberry cake with Roberto. I got to cut, fill, and decorate everything! I got too scared to put the chocolate writing, so Roberto did it for me. -Towards the end of my shift, Roy's was missing a bunch of cookies, so I stayed another hour to try and finish everything. We also churned some Vanilla Ice Cream. Katie accidentally churned it so much that there were butter chunks in them. LoL! But it's better than nothing. It doesn't even taste like butter anyways.
8/19 -SUPER chill day. It started off at 8 with Megan. She immediately let me churn vanilla ice cream, make a raspberry swirl ice cream, white chocolate gelato, raspberry gelato, and coconut ice cream. That took up soooo much time. When I finished, I had about 2 hours left in my shift. Megan left by then, so it was just Anna and I. I literally had nothing to do. I kinda walked around, did some birthday plates, make some biscotti, and help scale for chocolate ganache. Oh yea! I also bought a crap load of sunflowers! So beautiful! Super cheap too! It's for my mommmaaa <3 -When I got back to the apartment, I did some flower arranging and waiting for the roomies to come home. -Shopping @Ross for clubbing tonight! I bought this cute black button down dress and black boots. -Clubbing around 10ish. I met up with Katie and her 2 friends. I also met her extremely tall boyfriend. Lol! When we got to the club, we waited for a little, then they let us in. Only $7, not bad! The club was tiny, music sucked, no one else but us danced... Other than that, we were in good company. We decided to bail about 2 hours later and run over to Denny's for a late night snack instead. Nomnom. I got the zesty nachos, and an oreo blaster. I also split half of a turkey sandwich with Katie. We got home around 1ish...
8/20 -Whoo! End of my 11 day workweek! Pretty chill day at work. I did all the stuff for Peppoli's. -When I got back to the apartment, I packed my car, showered, microwaved my zesty nachos and headed home. <3 -I met up with the guys at Hidden Lake, then they came over to help me unload and stuff. We chilled around for a bit, then went to Darren's place. Momma Toy bought me some cheese balls! <3 We met up with Alan, then headed out to sweethearts. -After meeting up with Eugene for a bit, we went to do a surprise attack on Timmy at work, then we just went to our hangout spot and stayed there till 12ish.
8/21 -Cotillion Practice! My feet were in so much pain. We reviewed Waltz, and went over some of the choreo for salsa. Funfun. -Got driven around by Jen. -When I got home, I chilled around, then went to the Dollar Tree to buy balloons. Guess who I saw? John Pasucal!!! Omg! He works there so he helped me blow up like 9 balloons, then he rang me up and gave me a discount. Sweet! -Remi and Wayne's pool party! Pretty funn. I swam with Shian, Chen and Calvin. I didn't swim for long though, I didn't put on sunblock so I didn't want to get dark. -We left about 2 hours later. -I went home, showered, then waited till Shian came over. We bought some pizza for my brothers, then went to Albert's potluck #2. -Pretty fun, we watched Valentines Day, some scary thai movie, and Don't Mess with the Zohan. I left around 12 AM while they were in the middle of Zohan.
8/22 -I got a frightened awakening from Clover at 7:30 as Timmy climbed on the roof to my window... once again. -Stupid Timmy... He confessed that he didn't love me anymore, and so I believed him, but I made him open his gifts first. He made me cry, but in the end, he was joking.. like always. grr. -Babe helped me chauffer my brother and grandma around. -Crepes at Barcode! I love how we always get one savory and one sweet and split it. Delish! - Great Mall! Thank you for buying those flats pour moi. I feel bad. Stop spending money on me! -After Timmy left for work, I took a mini nap at home, then met up with Shian. -We went to Sweethearts and talked, walked around, then went to the Carnival at the Great Mall. It was still pretty bright out so we just walked around in the mall for a bit. I bought new body cream, body wash, and purfume at Bath and Body works. Yesh! I needed some body cream anyways... it was just on sale, so pourquoi pas? -Carnival! I bought tickets for 4 rides. The first ride we went one was kind of like a drop zone type ride. Then I went on this super spinny one which made me dizzy like hell. Then I decided that I wanted to take my brothers to the carnival, so we drove home, got my brothers and came back. - I bought them some tickets also and we went on this Centerfuge-like ride. No bad. I watched my brothers go on the drop zone like one and then I was going to put them on this other ride and spins around, but the guy said that they needed 4 people, so Shian and I just went on. Not bad, I got dizzy though. My bros had one more ride to go, but they were so dizzy that we just decided to go home. Blahh motion sickness </3 -Banhzaii
I woke up at 10 and didn't really do much. I had eggs and and English muffin for breakfast though! I left around 12ish so I could go to the Payroll building to get a new ID card. Idiotically, I got lost and took like 10 different turns. Eventually I was like, "Okay... I know I'm going the wrong way and if I keep going, imma get lost." So I turned around and finally found my way to the building. (finally). The guy immediately printed up my ID card and I was out in less than 10 minutes. I was so freaked out about being late for work, in the end though, I was extremely early... Anyways, when I got to work, I began with dipping chocolate, counting leftover pastries (and snatching a few for myself) and doing Peppoli’s stuff. Super chill day today. I was extremely tired for some reason though. Like, halfway through, I was so drained that I was walking all sluggish and everything. By the end of the night though, I regained all my energy back. We had a party of 70 today. That’s actually pretty small. We had a circle plate with crème anglaise and chocolate sauce on it, then we put on a tart with chocolate filling, then a scoop of almond ice cream with a mint leaf. Super simple and super quick. After that was over, it was just cleaning up. By the time it was 9 though, we all ran out of things to do so we just kind of stood around and chatted until it was 9:30. So yeaa, now I’m back at the apartment. Work at 11 tomorrow! Ughh… Work is gonna make me fat! I ate nonstop today. Gahh. Okay, I shall try to refrain myself tomorrow. I’ll munch on an apple if I have to. I should just bring in a muzzle or something. LOL! -Banhzaii
What a chill day today. I couldn’t get out of bed today at 8. Instead, I snoozed my alarm and slept for another 2 hours 15 minutes. After that, I jumped out of bed, got ready, grabbed a croissant and went to work. It was just Megan, Alberto, Anna, and Katie today. All I did today was prep stuff for Peppoli’s, made ice cream base, and made a bunch of other things. Super chill day today actually. Hopefully tomorrow goes well. Megan and Ana are not gonna be there. I’m gonna be working with Suzanne, Alberto and Katie. There’s a party that’s gonna be happening, so I guess I’m pretty excited. Right now, roomies and I are watching the Proposal. So so funny. Lol! I can’t wait to go home! 4 more days!!!! Yeshhhhh!! Kekeke -Banhzaii
Who knew that having 3 12 hour shifts in a row would be fun? Concours D'Elegance, I shall definitely miss you. This entire week of work has been a mix of stress, mistakes, laughter and jokes. Although I am extremely tired from it, drained actually, I wish it wasn't over. Back to the regular schedule now... This week shouldn't be too bad. Today would be the 6th day of my 11 day workweek. I'm halfway through! I can't wait till I go home. It's going to be rewarding for me. Everyone is like "Omg... how can you do it?" But I just reply back "It's not like I have anything else to do here anyways. I might as well work and be able to go home." To tell you the truth, I almost got a 3 day weekend! But... at the last minute, a party came up. Darn you friggen rich people! Oh wells. I'm still excited to go home anyways. I can't wait! I'm also excited for Thursday to come! Clubbing..? WHAA? Hopefullyyyyy!!! Anyways, I think I'm gonna go make a shake or something, I'm so sure that I gained about 1928y49283y589340 lbs this past week. Cakes, cookies, and pies flying all over the place. I couldn't help but stock up on some.. Now I'm getting punished. Anyways, yeaaa. I'm gonna go now. Bye! -Banhzaii
