The more you know the less you need to say.– Jim Rohn. Guess that means I’m a genius.
I think I make my CF (RA) uncomfortable
He comes into our room.
Eduardo: Hey, do you guys go to church?
Eduardo: You guys aren't Catholic?
Eduardo: Oh, I guess you don't know what Ash Wednesday is then.
Eduardo: (To Mari) Okay. Hey, is that you playing tennis?
Eduardo: (To Mari) You were on the tennis team?
Mari: Yep. And she was too.
Eduardo: Do you guys still play?
Me: (sarcastically) Nope. The courts are too far.
Eduardo: Hah. That's funny. [lingering] Okay, well, see ya.
Note to self: Resist the urge to use the word “buttload.”
I can’t believe I slept for fourteen hours (7:30 p.m. to 9:30 a.m.). I guess that’s what happens when I forget to set my alarm clock on my phone. I can finally put my hair in a half ponytail when it’s wet. It is the smallest nub you will ever see but I was getting really tired of not being able to do anything with my hair. It was/still kind of is in the awkward stage of not...

Why does writing a paper always lead to an existential crisis?
and two and a half hours later
I have written less than a page. I wasn’t even been on Facebook/other websites for more than five minutes of that time. Why is this so excruciating?
okay, enough procrastinating
After my Arrupe reflection session, I WILL write my 10-page paper. I WILL.
So good to listen to old favorites like Landslide by the Dixie Chicks, Wherever You Will Go by The Calling, and Don’t Know Why by Norah Jones. It’s amazing how I still love the songs that I did when I was twelve.
uninstalling AIM for now
Hardly use it anymore and this annoying AOL pop-up keeps, well, popping up so hasta la vista, baby.
back and forth
One second I’m thinking, “Okay. 10-page paper. Let’s take this thing one page at a time,” and the next “Oh my God. I am never going to get this thing done. This is impossible.” What I need is a plan. A plan to kill my English teacher.
Alvin on Lent
Maybe you could give up something weird, like giving up the ability to use your right hand for a week or something :P Originally posted as a comment by AlvinT.
In less than five minutes, here’s what you can do with Photoshop. If I were in the darkroom, I couldn’t even produce the second image in an hour, if at all. I have no sympathy for the people in my class who are using digital cameras.
I’m not Christian but this year I am going to fast for Lent, agnostic-style. Basically, I figure if other people are giving up stuff this time of year, I can do it too. The only question is…what should I give up? Ideas: // television — This wouldn’t be too hard since I don’t really watch that much anymore, except for the occasional Real Housewives of Orange...
I really missed my friends today. Friends like Hilary, Natalie, Nikki, Jennifer Moy, Gary, and Bao. The people that I don’t necessarily talk to every single day (A, C, K, M) but still love to be around.
high heels today?
I haven’t worn them in so long and I am feeling fancy! Photo exhibit thing tonight for extra credit so maybe I will wear my 4-inch muse shoes? Oh, I am so ready for the pain. Update: Opted for the boots I got in China. Glad I did.
Operation Mixed-up Files: the book
The book was decent. Man, I miss books with illustrations. The pictures give you something to look forward to Will make up a list of necessities for the trip (food, blanket, flashlight, etc.).
“Jadaaa I love the photos you added. And I miss ur awesomeness and snark.”
I miss watching LATE LATE NIGHT WITH CRAIG FERGUSON. And FRASIER. Can you believe I haven’t even watched BROTHERS & SISTERS for a month? Yeah! One week, I actually forgot it was on. That’s really weird ‘cause even when I was in Mexico for the first part of Thanksgiving break, I remembered at 9:50 on Sunday night that a new episode was going to be on. With no B&S and...
My stress level is directly proportional to the number of pieces of gum I’ve chewed that day. Today’s stress level: 5.
So I was talking to my mom on the phone and she asked, “Have you been watching the news?” “No, Mom. I don’t have time to watch the news.” “Well, it’s important to know what’s going on.” And I thought, “That’s not important. What’s important is that I finish this gosh darn bibliography.” Woah, woah, woah. Take a step...
We have this thing called “Talkin’ Crap” posted in each bathroom stall. It has what’s coming up this month and it profiles two pairs of roommates. One of the questions the roommates have to answer is “What’s your biggest pet peeve?” Well, I know mine! It’s when people are sitting in the hallway talking really loudly so that even if you are in the...
Stuck in my head all day. Thanks Booze Cruise...
Operation Mixed-up Files: the beginning
I am reading From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler for some research. I’ve found a couple of hiding places for us (Mari and me) in the library. Now to figure out when the cleaning crew comes so they don’t catch us and turn us in. Update: Well, it seems Mari doesn’t want to do it anymore. Big surprise. Looks like I’ll be going solo then. Psh. I hate it when...
Does justice never find you? Do the wicked never lose? Is there any honest song...– The Blues by Switchfoot
I bought a rose gram to be delivered to Mari but I forgot that she was leaving to go back home today. I guess she will have a dead yellow rose when she comes back. Yes, I can see it now. “This dead rose is a symbol of our friendship.”
note to self
No matter how tired you are, it’s not safe to walk down the stairs with your eyes closed.
one awful week
An email I wrote this morning to my English teacher: Mr. Townley — I don’t really know what to say but here goes. For the past several days, I have been getting an average of four hours of sleep due to midterms and yes, the annotated bibliography that is due today. I honestly feel like I’m on the verge of some kind of mental breakdown (ironic seeing as how my latest idea for my...
Short little clip with Eric Dane (GREY’S ANATOMY) and Ellen DeGeneres on ELLEN.
A violent crime happens every 23 seconds in the U.S. A murder, every 33 seconds. Over 20% of college women are raped. 40% of car accidents are alcohol-related. African-American males are seven times more likely to be murdered than white males.
the certain knot of peace
Apparently, I fell asleep while doing my application for a summer fellowship. I say “apparently” because I don’t remember falling asleep. I do remember, however, getting a leg cramp. Yeah, I was like, “Ow, ow, that hurts. Oh…so sleepy. Let me just sleep for a few more minutes and then you can make my leg cramp later. Mehhhh.” Back to sleep.
