today doesn’t feel like the last day of february .. and that’s because it’s not :D hehe, three more months till the big day. can you believe it? i feel excited, scared, nervous, relief. only time will tell what will happen in the future. now for the present. i woke up this morning from a phone call exactly 8 to wake me up for school. i’m cranky in the morning though :X still, it’s pretty funny and cute to get a wake up call. hehe, i went to school and made it in time for second. we took a test and it as easy peasy. yesterday, mr. green noticed how tiffany and i were stuffing out faces with food. he calls our little snack a “picnic”. third period might be favorite period because we get to eat, listen to his stories, and often learn. so chill. and my awesome friend is there. (not you tiffany, go away). hehe, i can’t believe we had to write an essay today in english. and i can’t believe i actually did it. we were given the whole period and it was silent and unbearable because dang, so boring. i like funny and interesting discussions in class. it’s what keeps me paying attention and awake. we had a sub for mr. chin’s class today and the whole period felt like all eternity. we weren’t allowed to do anything and the case studies didn’t take very long. i will study for the test tomorrow.
i was craving froyo this weekend but didn’t get a chance to get it so i went to yogurtland with johnny after school and had my favorite flavors. yummy. i hope yogurtland expand everywhere. as in to every state because i will certainly miss it when if i leave. afterwards, i went to the doctor to check out my ear problem -_- the past two days, my right ear has been weird. for example, if i move my head up and down, i hear a slight buzzing or ringing. not really, but it’s really hard to describe. it feels like something is moving inside yet there is nothing. i had to wait like two hours but this nice lady started talking to me. she was really sweet. i found it so easy to talk to her. even though we had a language barrier because i don’t know canto (sad life) and she doesn’t know english well, we were able to communicate very comfortably. she started off by asking me to watch her eleven months old little girl while she quickly runs to the restroom. i was happy to help, but i feared that the little kid in the stroller might start crying. thankfully, she didn’t. instead, she kept staring curiously at the pooh on my phone. when her mama came back, she sat down and started talking to me. and that’s how our conversation started. i found out she has a sixteen year old niece in sghs that is in swim, that she’s busy with two kids (one which was still staring at me) and another who is five, and how she yearns to go back to school to improve her english. sadly, she has no time especially with the housework and two young children. even though our meeting was brief, and chances that i will run into her again is close to impossible, it was a meeting that i enjoyed. oh, and the ear thing turned out to be allergies that caused fluid to go to my ear. yay for two more bottles of pills.
i want to place this year. and i have some awesome friends to walk up the stage with. hehe, this week is dedicated to hardcore studying because we want to go to state that bad. actually, i don’t really want to do anything but we’re too near the date to procrastinate. i don’t even know what shoes to wear but dang, the skirt length has to be so long and it’s uncomfortable (for me). i recall last year my teacher humiliating me in front of the whole class about it and it was not cool. yesterday, we went shopping and i got a blouse since i had the skirt already. i found the perfect skirt with the perfect length and both tiff and i really liked it but we would be disqualified x3846385 for competitions. sighs, we ended up buying chips and going to jenny’s house to study. studied for an hour :X we got cheeto fries and i had to eat water. suck at eating super spicy things. and well, we did better than the last time but still not good enough so that night we skyped and did another practice test. hehe, we scored higher :D and i guess i will study for my other topic today but there’s english homework and i am so reluctant to pick up my book because it smells like crap -_-
especially tiring, but that means that i will have an easy sleep tonight :) friday, friday. who doesn’t love the weekends? i woke up a bit early in the morning to avoid being late again for school. we worked on study guide for accounting and i love how it’s really easy. or how after you finish a problem, your answers are right. it’s a similar feeling to working on a math problem and getting the right answer. only accounting is easier. in third, tiffany brought pocky :D !! yums, i didn’t bring anything this week :( i have nothing to bring to our little picnic in third period. next week, next week. in fourth, we had a partner quiz and i felt that my partner and i did pretty good. we had the whole period to ourselves afterwards and he and i just talked and played with my ipod games :) too bad we have homework this weekend. there’s an all clubs meeting today and we talked about the food festival and how it’s cancelled because of how it’s “unhealthy”, and i’d like to emphasize how that is complete bullshit. one day a semester won’t kill us. plus it’s not like we’re forced to buy this “unhealthy” food they speak of. i don’t think we can bring it back. i’d like to, but it’s not likely. jenny and i tried to convince tiffany to go to townhall today but she refused. grr, that girl. so frustrating. i am angry at her. just kidding. we have a study thing tomorrow :X fifth period was listening to mr. green’s stories and his jokes. i wish he was my grandpa :( quiz in sixth and then talked about our results on our homework survey. my numbers were so high that i was ashamed to share my score. hehe, it was entertaining anyhow.
i went home after school to drop things off and “change” for townhall but i ended up in a pair of jeans, tank, and cardigan anyway. not feeling very semi formal today. when i got home though, i was told i got mail. the envelope was thick, and it was no doubt college mail. it was the college i previously had an interview with — the very same interview i didn’t think i did too well on. and to my shock, they accepted me. it was indeed a surprise. i’m happy, but a part of me don’t think that i would go there. i’m just keeping my options open, and i’m glad i heard from them. i was starting to get anxious. anyways, at 430 i went back to keppel and most people were already there. on the bus ride to south el monte i got bus sick :( it felt really uncomfortable and i thought the bus smelled extremely weird. the ride was so bumpy too. but it was funny talking to jenny and sherry. we had mexican food there, and it was good :) the biggest pet peeve of the evening: they didn’t have dessert. it’s okay though, right now i am munching on green tea cake. i’m not done with my recap but i’m tired and my cake is waiting for me.
bipolar california weather fo’reals. i didn’t realize how close march is till today during the fbla meeting. competitions are next saturday and i didn’t even know. i always knew it was going to be the first week of march, but i didn’t know how close it was till then. it’s still february in my mind. it was a big shock as i realize i need to study more. i’ve made a few attempts to study but not enough effort to detain the information in my brain. i’ve been very tired. i don’t understand why, considering i am no where near where i was two months ago. today .. school went by pretty slowly. i got my first official tardy, even though i was late only twenty seconds after the bell rang -_- it’s my daily workout running to class. we have a partner quiz tomorrow for english and i will study a bit for that later. i promised my possible partner i will. we spent fourth period in the library doing nothing. in fifth, like every other day, i play games on my ipod while listening to mr. green’s stories + lectures. he has a great sense of humor and he’s really nice. i love his stories even though i’m not very interested in finance. i love how he talks about his wife, and many times make jokes about it. we could all see how much he loves her though. i went to yogurtland later in the afternoon and got $5 worth of yogurt :) favorite flavor and it’s packed like usual. went with daddios because he’ll be unavailable the next two weeks or so. and yep, that’s the general outline of my day today. i love funny texts <3
great day today :) it’s my friend’s birthday and everything went well. to start off, we had decided to go to boiling crab to celebrate her birthday. so school went by as normal. i was reluctant to wake up but it wasn’t that hard in the end. the weather looked chilly, so i brought a jacket to school. periods went by and i got a cupcake made by nellie for tiffany and it was so yummy. her cupcakes are so good and my favorite part is the icing. always been the icing. everyone waited for me and constance because we had a sixth period. we were a bit afraid that boiling crab would be filled with people (like last time) but that was during the time intervals for dinner. when we arrived though, the parking lot was completely empty, and inside was as well. there were just a few customers. after all, it was 3 in the afternoon. only us high school students would be pretty hungry. school doesn’t exactly provide us with a decent lunch. anyways, we ordered some pounds of shrimp and even though i don’t really like seafood, it was pretty good. i guess it’s because i haven’t eaten it in a super long time (months), so that when i ate it earlier today, it was new and yummy. all in all, it was fun — racing emmelynn and constance to yogurtland. we were in the car and them two dashed there. the sun goes down really fast, and before i knew it, it became really dark. after i left everyone, i went home to drop things off, and went to buy things. got balloon(s) that flew away and basically .. food. went home again, and then off to tiffany’s house to drop it off. it was suppose to be a ‘surprise’ but i was paranoid that she won’t be home and the trip would be for nothing. plus the balloon would fly away unless i tie it to her doorknob. haha, paul opened the door ;) HAHA. and i went home, ate and showered, and skyped for 2+ hours with the birthday girl -_- i also saw ‘you’ today :X now i’m tired but i promised i’d update so good night y’alls. and facebook just went crazy on me and it’s not unavailable. i was in the middle of a chat :(
yesterday evening, i went on an evening jog around the park with my sister. ran around a couple of laps (just kidding, just three) before my fatass got tired and we went home. hilariously, my sister also got chased by a dog. she was “scared for her life” and went home to drink orange juice for more vitamin c. hehe, i’m just so proud that i took the first step of getting back into shape. i can’t remember the last time i had proper exercise. actually, it was last tuesday but it seemed forever ago. it was a tiring day, and the cold, polluted air of monterey park somewhat made me feel better. we also bought a box of cinnamon buns and that was a small part of the intrinsic motivation i had. $5 of frozen yogurt that afternoon also convinced me otherwise. i just want to get into shape in case there’s a zombie attack and we gotta run for our lives. today, i went on a study date for global business with em and tiff, and we happen to run into the other tiffany and jenny studying for calculus. we left to play basketball after doing not-so-well on our practice tests. we ended up playing ping pong first :) it was pretty fun despite me not remembering the last time i played ping pong if i ever played at all. the only table tennis i played was on the wii :X we went to play basketball but the courts were all taken till it was super dark and we could hardly see the ball. all in all, it was a really good weekend and i haven’t had one of these in a long time. tomorrow is someone’s birthday and we’re going out to eat. more yummy foods !! :D so shout out to that fatass — happy birthday <3 and i updated because you told me too. now i am off to study :’(
when i got home yesterday, i was too lazy to type a post :X
and also, i wanted to include pictures, and i was certainly too lazy to do that. when i got home yesterday, i watched tv and dramas. hehe, but now i will recap it all (or as much as i can remember). i left off yesterday after lunch listening and listening to the speakers. food coma kicked in, and i swear that nothing was worth sitting through all that. sadly. but it was all in the moment, because later that night, the meal convinced me it was worth it all. seriously, through my stomach, you can totally win my heart. haha. there was this guy that was pretty interesting — he graduated from ucla, and he is openly gay. that’s all i can remember. oh, and the other guy, pamela thought he looked very much like the guy in the pixar movie ratatouille :X we ended up on our ipods (thank goodness for free ucla wifi). we went on a tour and that was a lot of walking. it’s extremely hard with my tights and loose flats because my foot keep slipping around and it felt like my shoe could fall off. and it did, a couple of times. till i took them off and ran up the stairs barefoot. ucla is so clean :) and it was very comfortable. there was no stray pebble. just saying. the tour made me wish that i will attend this school.
we walked into the room we would be dining in. it was the same room we listened to the speakers a few hours before — only it was completely transformed into a fancy-looking room. it was so nice and we all sat down in the back of the room. good thing we did too, because i could swear that we were the loudest table. i sat next to pamela and carmen. the table next to us were these group of younger guys who claimed that they snorted all their sugars. i don’t think they were serious, but there were 384395435 empty sugar packets everywhere by the time they were done. and mysteriously, after the meal, they all disappeared. the meal was so yummy. especially dessert, my favorite part of dinner. it was cheesecake with fruits on top and all and it was so pretty and so darn good. then we listened to the speakers again .. all our ipods died already — mine, then pamela’s, then brian’s, and then beverly. 1.5 hour later, they were done answering questions about everything and then we headed out. i found my old buddy and we talked a little before we all walked back to the bus. it was a long, cold walk. waited a bunches more minutes for the bus and waved good bye to the graduated keppelettes. sighs, so much pictures but i chose these three.
when you are in the middle of a fight, how about you not drag me in? i have nothing to do with it, so it’d be really nice if you leave me out of it. to be honest, the last thing i want is to get involved. being in the middle of two tense people isn’t my ideal day. i’m not going to play messenger and deliver messages from one person to another when clearly, you can do it yourself. back and forth, back and forth — when will it end? you’re not 5, and certainly mature enough to handle it yourself. being mad doesn’t mean you can’t speak to the person, it’s just that you don’t want to. so leave me out of it because i surely have better things to do than this.
