Helen is my bitch and I'm her bitch. We like to call each other that.

At work just now...
I’m sitting at my desk and the phone rings. Karen picks it up, points at me, and mouths something with a smile. Assuming the phone call was for me from Helen.... I pick up the phone.

Me: Bittcccchhhhh.
Me: Bittccchhhhhh.
Me: Uh, hello?
Voice: Hollie? This is Dr.Lam.
-silence- Me turning RED.
Me: Uh, heeheeee. Hi Dr.Lam. How can I help you?


O_o   I just called the doctor a B*I*T*C*H. How absolutely nice of me.

A big, round of applause to the great and powerful, Damon!! He's been teaching me how to post pictures up. Thanks Damon!! HK pictures will be up when Costco's done developing them.

This weekend = :D *smiles all around*

minus a disappointing "flaking" incident at home = :(
and minus the >:O as ....
I was filling out the fee form to pay for tuition for this coming quarter. O_O Tuition increased from $812.75 to $950.75 per quarter, plus parking permit. The total comes out to a whopping $1020.25!! Oh my goodness. $1020.25 x 3 quarters.... where's my calculadora?... $3060.75. Another O_O. No financial aid. Frick.

I will NOT worry. Worse comes to worse, my parents can lend me the dinero. But I wanted to do this on my own! Oh welps. o_O Such is life. I'm gonna work work work really really hard this summer. My mom asked me the other day after I was complaining about the tuition increase if I regret going to HK. Not only was I NOT working, but I also had to take out a chunk of my savings. Even so, I still don't regret it, cauuse, I love HK! I should have bought one of those T-Shirts that have "I (heart) HK!" in typewriter print to declare my non-regretfullness. What a fun shirt. :D)

More work (but of course) for the rest of the week.

Another "Mommy & Me" swimming class with Evan and Paige. Free (yes! Free! Gotta love that word!) natural high right there, being able to actually helping them learn how to swim. I love it when they jump in the pool and I get to catch them. In Evan's case, more like walking into the pool. I love hearing from Paige, "Jeje, come back! It's too far!" followed by a jump, even though I didn't move forward at all. 

Afterwards, a family celebration of an additional candle on my Uncle's birthday cake.  Dinner in Chinatown.

Workin' the daycare at church again. Last week, 4 crying babies + 4 "Don't come near me or I'll cry too" babies. Only 3 (including me) sitters. Kelly, you would have loooved it. Lotsa cryng, lotsa baby boogers, etc. etc. etc. ;D Muahaha.

Dinner with Sara's papa, Damon, & Jason!! Sorry guys about having to change it to Sunday!! :D

That about covers the rest of the week. More laters! Need to get my beauty sleep.


What my brother had to say to that.
"Not that it'll help." What a booger. ^_^

It works!! After how many tries? A whole frickin' lot. Now I'm all ready to post my HK pictures up.

^ Up above. A reaaaaalllyyyy good tuna sandwich at this one restaurant in HK

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

If only it was that easy.

Only Fooling Myself
Kate Voegele

I stop to catch my breath - And I stop to catch your eye
No need to second guess - That you've been on my mind
I dream days away, but that's okay -
It's like I want to hear a silent sound -
And then hold it in my hand
But a rose won't blossom from a ground -
Of desert sand, but I like to pretend that
One day I'll turn around - I'll see your hand reach out
I'm only fooling myself, - But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile - Just maybe you'd save me now - Save me now
Well, now it's etched in stone - That I can't survive alone - You have the missing piece
That I need so desperately - Yes, I slip away to a day that'll never come
It's like a splash of water to my face -
When I suddenly realize
That you could never find a place -
For me in your eyes, and I don't know why I keep thinking
One day I'll turn around - I'll see your hand reach outI'm only fooling myself, -
But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile - Just maybe you'd save me now -
Save me nowIt's love in disguise -
I've lost track of time - I'm lost in your eyes
And I don't know why I think that
One day I'll turn around - I'll see your hand reach out
I'm only fooling myself,  - But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile - Just maybe you'd save me now - Save me now
Just maybe you'd save me now

Pretty darn good for an amateur. :D
Love the lyrics. More tomorrow.

My first experience of true independence for 3 days and already, I'm a bit homesick. Gah. I called home twice already and Sara once (I'm sure there's plenty more of that during the rest of my stay). You don't know what you miss until it's gone. :D

HOng KOng is so frickin' hot. Even hotter than Me. That's pretty darn hot. ;) J/k, j/k. I'm drenched in sweat half the time and all I'm breathing in is hot air. I'm melting, I'm melting. Oh, what a world, what a world.

I was in the subway this morning and these two teenage guys was holding onto the bar up ontop while the train was in motion. Ohmigoodness. We could not breathe. Major B.O. I seriously was gonna puke. B.O. is the latest cologne/perfume everyone is wearing. O_O Heehee. Me too.

Gotta go. More laters.
