Thoughts of the Moment: Blue Whale, Gordo.

Studying like a mad woman for philosophy test tomorrow. I went to work today, but came home early to study. Pearl's on vacation (woot woot!), so I'm full-timin' it as much as I can till she comes back. :)

I watched two movies (one old, one new) yesterday and today. I want to be in percussion. I want to go to Rome. Guess what two movies I watched. :)

I am poops. I went to Shelby's b-ball game for the Tiger B-ball Tournament at Blair High School. (Blair HS is the one we pass by on Marengo on our way to Old Town.) There was a game at 11 and then we had to go back at 615 for another. They were always thisclose to winning. They played three games, and lost all three by 2 points. Arghs! Their baskets, *bounce boooouuunce circle circle* and out of the basket. Going to their b-ball games, I don't think is too good for my heart. I tense up too much. Heehee.

You know what is not good for my heart? Driving with the parents in the car. Constant nagging that you can't run away from.
Watch out for that man 2 miles away, you might hit him. You should have slowed down for the yellow to turn red. Why are you going so fast? You're going 35 in a 40 mph zone.

Mom, Dad? Because you drive slow, it makes me driving speed limit seem fast. It kills me to drive 25 in a 40 mph zone. 25 might SOUND fast, but try driving it. It's like I'm slowly laagggging my way here and there. On my slow way here and there, I would get some cutoffs, some honking, and maybe even a few fingers. We got a MAJOR cutoff on our way to Blair HS because you wouldn't let me go any faster than 35 mph! Kill me now! My heart, oh, my heart! Talk about road rage.

So, I told them NICELY, very nicely, that if they want me to drive sanely, then all they have to do is shut up. Simple as that. They decided to listen to my wise words. The result, a pleasant ride home, and thus, further proving my point.

Here I am at work. No one is here today. Kinda quiet.

CSULB finals are over and done with. Two finals in an hour and a half straight. *shines nails* Heehee. Two down, two more to go, then it's all over. I can't wait. At the same time, not wanting it to come. I'm still not really sure what I want to do over the summer, besides work. I don't know if I'm accepted at CSULA, so I don't know what classes to take at ELAC for it. So confused. And for some reasons, I've been procrastinating on calling LB about the procedures for transferring. I need to do it, and soon. I don't like changes. I like things to be familiar.

Friday was also my Uncle's wedding. I saw my ex-aunt, aka, my uncle's ex-wife there. Gosh, EX-WIFE is sounds so harsh. I'd rather call her past-aunt, or something besides EX. :) My uncle and her are still good friends. Her name is Fran. It was really weird seeing her again. We were pretty close when I was little. She was really warm and friendly, as I remembered. She treated us like we were her neices and nephews. Shelby doesn't remember her though. He was little then. Fran remembered us as being shorter than her, now, even I'm taller, but not by much. She said, "I've always looked down at you guys. Now I have a cramp in my neck from looking up!" :-)

The reception was held at Phoenix Inn, the restaurant I hate eating at. Ugh. The good part was that we got to meet Regina's, my uncle's WIFE, family. They were so easy-going. They kind of remind me of the families in The Bachelor. Like when the Bachelor goes and meets the girls' families. Her family was like them. Heehee. They even invited us up to San Jose for their July 4th BBQ.

It ended with lotsa hugs and handshakes. Regina's brother had the tightest handshake. Me and Shelby were like ow ow ow! He looked like he use to be a football player. Congrats to them. :-)

Currently playing on WINAMP: Simple Love - Jay Chow

I keep thinking today is Wednesday. I told Regina, my uncle's fiancee, that I couldn't meet her for preparations tomorrow cause I have 2 finals. Oops. Tomorrow is Wednesday, not Thursday. I should call her. Their wedding is this Friday. I'm helping out translating things between her and my grandma, making place cards, doing seating charts, and picking things up. Surprised I could even help, being that Finals are the day before.

I haven't really been stressing over finals, which is a good thing. There's really nothing to study for. I just have to review the mathematical parts of physics, which I'll never get. But, I'm going to attempt anyway. Who knows, it might help? heehee. My Chinese professor was very understanding about the whole physics and chinese final being scheduled on the same day and time. He said I could come after my physics final and take it late. :-) *whew* I can't wait till school is over. I have till June 9th, my last final. *ugh* one ends, and another begins.

I submitted my application for CSULA yesterday! I'm done! Sorta. Still got paperwork, probably, for CSULB side. At least I'm half way done. I'm excited. I don't have to drive 40 minutes there and 40 minutes back. Honestly, I don't know how Damon drove to Irvine, went to classes, and drove back home in one day. I'm pooped by the time I get home! All that extra time!

It's a good thing cause lately, I've been spending a lot of the time at my Aunty and Suart's house, helping out. My grandma constantly needs me to bring food back and forth for my aunty to eat during her recooperation period. A lot of chinese herbal stuff. Ol' chinese secret. :) heehee...running on over to the shower right now. got a couple more things to do on my list. So I can cross them out and get a feeling of accomplishment.

...`~ X- CROSS -X~`:..`~ X- CROSS -X~`:..`~ X- CROSS -X~`:......just a couple more...and then I'll be done! woot woot!

I have not been updating. My apologies. More tomorrow.

As for now...
Sorries to DB for the utterly unfair lost at the GL Banquet. Leaders of any type, as a basic understanding, should rule as a leader and not as a leader who lets their personal relations guide their decisions. Those are not leaders. Those are just stupid people. Go kick her ass!

P.S. WHO THE HELL IS SCOTT?! Can you please spare your cousin the misery of curiosity? I don't like having dreams like that.

Ha, I'm not the only one!

lazy BALLER89: look at the lunar eclipse!!

Suckas! And I have company!
The Lakers lost. Kobe was so sad. Never saw him like that before.

I was about to explode. Damn this, I say. Thank goodness for DB and her marqee that made me laughed. Thank goodness for Dawson's Creek.

there are some things in life that uncrappifies all the crap that life decides to crap on you. those are good.

All I can say is....

jung sic hing yau.
I'm back!

Quoting Ra "SHE HAD THE BABY!" It was another awesome experience. Much quicker too. 4 pushes and he was out. Still no name.

A runoff between:
- Evan
- Trevor
- *a name I don't remember, prob. cause it I didn't like it?*

I got a call early in the morning at 530. At first, I thought I was dreaming. There have been so many false calls on my part that I gave up on the idea that the baby was gonna come at all. My aunty gave me the list of things to be done and directions. Me and Dad drove to Aunty's, picked up Paige, dropped her off at my G-ma's house. My dad dropped me off at ELAC for my Phil. class. He picked me up after class, Stuart called, They were at the hospital. Ran our asses over there and...waited. (Hurry up and wait! says the Beer-Belly Man!) During my wait, I heard a total of 7 cries during the 7 hours there. :) The sweetest sounding one of all, of course, came from Labor&Delivery Room 1, our room.

His cry sounded like the horn in my Corolla. A teensy little toot. He is definately not an ugly baby. He was pruny with a tint of purple from being so white. 2 slits for eyes, a button nose, *5 fingers, *5 toes, and all in the right places. He's perfect. My heart felt so sweet just looking at him. He smiled when I said his Chinese name, phonetically "ho ho". Like me!

I drove my G-ma and Paige and Dad over to the hospital to see him and my Aunty, who's doing great. Stuart spent the night at the hosp with her.
I am so excited. I can't wait to teach him stuff. I can't wait to teach him to call Stuart, "Papeeeeeee." and annoy the heck out of him. Heh heh. I can't wait to play b-ball with him. I can't wait to baby-sit him. I can't wait to place him in the grove of my lap, Indian-style, and read to him.

Aside from all the bleeding, cutting, sewing, and the unforgettable squishy noises, it was all worth it. He's coming home tomorrow and I'll be the first one there to greet him.

* * *
* Add 5 more to each. (Thank you to Kelly-bean. Or I would have sounded stupid. Ha. :-) )
(Thank you for the phone calls, S & R) Heh heh...me and ra make H & R Block.

Aunty called this morning, 530 AM.

She's having contractions!! I can't sleep. Run to class, take test, run to Grandma's house, make sure Paige is okay, run to Arcadia Methodist Hospital, have baby (not me, mi tia) teehee, come home.

Before my aunty says bye, she tells me, "Good luck on your test today." I say, "Que la! GL on my test? Good luck poppin' the baby outta you!"

Stuart called....

I'm getting my hair cut tomorrow. :O
Emotional attachment to my hair. But it's really really really split-endy. So I'm doing It a good thing.

At first, I thought my aunty was having her baby. Last night, we got a call at 11. No one calls after 10, so we freaked and thought it was the baby. But it was my uncle. He's getting married.


It was hard for him to tell my Grandma. His fiancee is Hispanic. Not that my Grandma's racist, just the fact that she's not CHINESE. But it's all over and done with. Now, I'm waiting for my Ma to come home with my Fish Filet. I've been hungry since lunch. Damn DinoBag.

Alhambra School District is laying off all Bilingual Aides.
My mom being one of them.


Ha..I never went outside to measure how much my car weighs. Instead, I played a newly dl FRIENDS episode. I'm bad.

My professor shaved off his goatee. He looks funny. His face is bigger and wider. You know what I noticed. The sides of his face, in front of the ears, it's green. Unlike Mr. Blankenhorn's red curl on his sides of the face. He reminds me of a leprechaun, for some weird reason.

After Philosophy, went to drop off some stuff at my Aunty's house. Like always, I never just DROP OFF something. I stayed and read a few books to Paige. She's really smart. She read a couple of lines from memory to me. My aunty needed to go to Costco to buy some Glucerna, milk shakes for diabetic people. She couldn't lift. I think she's a ticking time bomb. She says when she walks a little faster, her stomach starts to tighten. Eeeeee. I really really hope Evan (Aunty wants Evan, Stuart wants Noah. Personally, I like Evan. What do you guys like?) stays in till after Finals. I already told him to, but I don't know if he'll listen to me. We'll see.

Had a good talk with Aunty about transferring to CSULA. She didn't have a good experience there with the C.D. department. She says she knows a lot of other people who had a bad experience also. I don't know. I'm all confused. Even more than I already am. My aunty also thinks there's something wrong with me. She says recently, I've been so low-key. Sara, was I low-key when I went out with you? Honestly now.

I know some things have been bothering me, but I've already accepted the fact that they're always going to be there. I don't know. I thought that I step-over them pretty well. Maybe it's the dinobag. Perhaps.

H-A-P-P-Y. I will try to be more of that. Don't want you guys to suffer through it with me. heehee. :-)

Today I wish you guys....to have....an ICE-CREAM DAY!! Ice-cream always makes people HAPPY! (er, minus the mention of that in the Joy Luck Club) haha.

Tuesday, May 06, 2003

Something that was said yesterday bugged the HELL out of me. "I'm stuck in a moment, that I can't get out of...." I'm trying to get over it.
Thank you to Ra for calling. (I found my slippers...my mom hid them, cause I didn't put them away before I left. I found my phone...I left it in my car. :-) )

I really should be doing my HW. Again. I took a 10 minute break, cutting split ends. Wonder where my Split-End Cutting friend is?
And now here I am.

Lab was really short yesterday, it being the last physics lab EVER! whoo hoo! And to double double-mint gum it (remember those commericals, with the twins? Double-mint, double-mint, double-mint........................gum), and to double the excitement, it was my last day in language lab too!! (I mis-calculated my hours and spent 2 extra hours in there when I didn't have to. Damn, but it's OVEr!) Ahhhhh...so afterwards....

In order of appearance....
drove home
ate lunch
chatted with Sara and Damon
printed out my lab report
picked up Shelby &
headed to Franco's Florist to order some...funeral wreaths? (Sara, what were they called again?) Our neighbor across the street died of internal bleeding Sunday night.
got picked up by Sara
who made a U-ey when we saw Aunty and Stuart driving the opposite direction to my house
played with Paige
headed to Santa Monica
got some quotes
ate dinner (Ra, you would have loved the helper that assisted us. He was so nice to us! We ate at the restaurant KRSH went to...where we saw the big african-american lady laughing really loud)
headed to SMC
i shot Sara (heehee, like Ape scan-gunned me)
went to Sara's apt ( I needed an application from her), watched 7th Heaven, and drank Chocolate Silk SoyMilk, which was YUMMY YUMMY IN MY TUMMY good!
got stuck in some WEIRD traffic...transition between 10 to 60. We literally just stopped and parked there for a good 20 minutes (Thank you, Damon for trying to find out what the H-E-double hockey sticks, was going on)
got home safely

ahhh...long list. still awake? heehee. Today is just a short list.

In order of appearance.....
went to school
came back

that's it. now, i'm headed on outside to measure how much my car weighs. This was the only Take-Home experiment that didn't deal with the MOON. haha...funny thought just ran through my empty head.

I had to draw diagrams of the moon for one of the observations. I should have done such:

4/13/2002 @ 9:00 PM
Facing directly due South

Moon directly in front.

Is it absolutely inconcievable for a girl not to have a mirror? This morning in Philosophy, this guy asks me if I had a mirror he could borrow. I told him, "No, sorry. I don't have a mirror with me." He gets this really twisted weird look on his face, like I'm lying or something. Que la!
Philosophy prof. didn't show up for class. A YAY! there. I have another hour to kill before I have to head my ass over to LB.

Y'all have a good day now.

Sunday, May 04, 2003

I am tired, but satisfied. I did MAJOR cleansing of my room. I went down on my hands and knees and scrubbed the floors. Kinda felt like Cinderella. MY ROOM IS NOW *sparkling* CLEAN!! That was my achievement of the weekend.

I'm rather excited knowing that there is only 2 more weeks of LB. No more physics! Woot woot! Which also means, I have to get started on my CSULA application. It's due sometime in June. Should really do that. Fine, I'll do that by the end of the week.

I finished watching "Square Pegs" another TVB series. The series is pretty good, but the ending SUCKED LIKE DONKEY BALLS! Basically, the love triangle never ended. All three went their seperate ways, came back 3 years later, to the meadow. One came back as a HongKong-ian, one came back as an English woman, and the other came back wearing a kimono. They all run towards each other in the meadow, join hands, and do ring-around-the-rosy. Whoever thinks that is a THE stupidest ending ever, say AYE!... AYE! for me.

Friday, May 02, 2003

Okay, so I got home safely. :-) Thank you, Sara for keeping me company. It made time go by faster.

So for this past week, I've been frantically trying to finish up my Language Arts project for my Child Develop. class. It was A LOT of work, but some parts were really fun. The Language Arts project included:

1.) An Original Story, written by Me. (My book was called "It's No Fun to be Louise."
2.) 3 Hand Puppets (I did a girl hand puppet, a witch from a spoon, and a toilet paper and egg rabbi)
3.) Finger Play Packet (This probably took the second longest. You could tell I was getting tired towards the end)
4.) Poetry Poster (Way up high in the tree, 2 red apples looked at me, I shook that tree as hard as I could, Down fell 2 red apples, Mmmm they were good.)
5.) Dramatic Play Box (For kids to play pretend. You have a theme for you box. My theme was "My Kitchen". Inside were pots, pans, aprons, fake food, etc., so that when a kid picked up that box, they're all set for pretend. I spent $18 at the 99 cents store for the stuff.

I presented my project yesterday. I was a little apprehensive that Ms. Minnix, the nasty prof., would say it was copied. She's reads A LOT of children's books. My aunty and Debby said it sounded copied. But seriously, I wrote it. But it went okay. The prof. laughed.

Wednesday was an interesting day. DB got into a car accident.Thank goodness she was okay. She was allegedly hit by a drunk driver. The accident caused 2 police cars, 2 highway patrol cars, 1 ambulance, 1 firetruck, and 1 major traffic jam. She was on her way to pick up my aunt. My mom went to go pick up my aunt and I went there to keep her company. Man, thank goodness I changed. I was just going to go in my houseclothes. PEOPLE ARE CURIOUS! Everyone was looking at the accident and all the people involved. For a more detailed account, go to DB.

Today, it's more of cleaning room (yay!) and making flash cars (yay!). I have a fun day ahead of me.

Sara: Let me know about the SCHR concert band thingy?
