So I was reading this article about Leehom Wang's love life... and now it seems like all of his songs make me want to cry. I really can't wait to hear him sing live this weekend. I think I'll tear up when he sings! I'll get all emotional and shiet. Please don't look at me when I cry, I don't like letting people see me cry... I just can't. I don't know why? It's not like pride or anything... I just feel ashamed when I cry, like I ruin like everyone else's happiness if they saw me cry. Ever feel that way??
Anyhow, here I am sitting on the couch my roommate just got from craigslist for 100 bucks! It's pretty sweet! and comfy! Yay! I should be finishing the final touches on last ENG 114 essay, but noo... I decided to watch Playhouse Disney Movie Monday and guess what was on! MULAN! :D I think Mulan is awesome! I really do! Haha, and I had no idea her story is actually a ballad. Wow! Whatever, she is still a real person to me!
Hmm, I apologize for my unorganized thoughts but I just remembered something. Have you ever seen that Wongfu Productions short film, "Just a Nice Guy"... I feel like that, except the girl version of Philip Wang. I don't want to be just a nice girl anymore. I remember one of Philip's character's friend said to him, something like.... How will she know that she is special to you if you treat everyone the same? Yeah, so true! Haha anywho, back to getting work done!
I have to get that English essay out of the way... even if the deadline is until Wednesday. I should just do it! Blah, I think I also need to go to the piano practice rooms and PRACTICE for my piano final! >___<"

I like it here
You know, I love my college. I guess it's hard to make friends at first because it's a commuter school and I live off-campus... kinda. Haha, but I live close! But this city and this college is awesome. I remember at the beginning of the year, I started wondering whether I had made the right decision on going here because really... I did have other choices. Better... in ranking? That probably would've made my parents a tad bit happier. But, I chose this school. And I'm glad I am here. I don't plan on transferring anytime soon! Maybe study abroad though? We'll see!
Anyhow, life is pretty good with a LAPTOP. Yeahhhhhh!!!!~~ ;D
But I still use my desktop when I get back to my room. Haha, I don't know why! But I guess I'm not use to typing on a laptop at home... I only use my laptop at home when I want to video chat with friends! Video chatting is so amazing! I love it! :D
Okay, I really don't have much to write today. I just felt like I needed to write something because it feels like it's been awhile! Blah!

MY LAPTOP ARRIVED EARLY! It was said to come on Wednesday, but came on Monday instead! And it's made my week... *giddy-ness* well except for parts of my week, but that drama is over now! Thank goodness! :D
Something I wanted to say... (not part of my materialistic wants)
One of my guy friends recently asked me about whether or not I had ever been to rural China and we started a conversation about how he wanted to go to rural China because he said something about how he "felt disconnected from 'third world' countries as most english speakers do because the truth is there isn't any rural places that speak english."
...and went on about how "if a country speaks english they are a developed country"
I'm still going over the idea of that in my head. And what he said is so true! I really need to go to rural China next time I get the chance to go to China... maybe this summer?!
But the thing is, this coming summer will be Summer Olympics in Beijing. I guess this could be a good thing as well. I always hear people talking about rumors they hear about bad stuff happening in China. I've gone 4 times already and I don't see what they are talking about. Like, sure... the first time I went, I packed too much... ate some stuff I shouldn't have eaten which made my stomach ache (but I mean, if you're not use to it at first... then of course you'll get a little ill and plus, Americans have such clean stomaches... it's no wonder this would happen)... Seriously everywhere you go, there will be little issues like these. Now, I'm starting to think the idea of bringing in foreigners to China will be a big perspective opener for people who have narrow views about China! And I hope people who go to China for the Olympics visit rural areas as well... maybe even stay a night. We could learn from people who are less fortunate than ourselves. Haven't you ever heard of the idea of the more simple your life is, the happier you'll be. From the last time I went to rural parts of China, I definitely saw this and I would like to learn how to be a little happier and giving. =]

I had my first manicure & pedicure today! It was a little scary... but those chairs are super awesome! xD
Reto is so hilarious with comments like "Did you put moisturizer on my legs??" Lady: "Yeahhhh~~" and "What? Why isn't this working?! Ohhh, you have to open the remote thing... no wonder it wasn't working!" and "Hey! You should try this! The tapping option on the chair! It's intense! Oh shoot! Sorry (to the lady)... I don't know how to turn this off!"
A day out with the boys. Awesome! :D

I think deactivating my facebook has been the best decision I've made this whole week! Although, I am getting withdrawals like not realizing I type "facebook.com" into the web browser, but haha! That'll be over soon...
So I'm officially on hiatus from facebook! :DD For at least the week I have off from school! ----- I'm flying back home tomorrow! I can't believe I'm finally going home! Who would have thought that I could've lasted this long! I, for one didn't think so!! I thought the minute my parents drove out of view, I would start bawling. But I didn't. I think calling my mom every morning while I'm walking to class helps a whole lot because I feel her presence there even though she isn't here with me at college. =] ----- I'm in the process of learning how to swim! I went to the swimming pool earlier tonight with a few friends. This is my second time in the pool in uh, what? like 7 years?! Yeah, I was too sissy to get into the water before! But hey, I'm always giving others advice about facing their fears, but I'm never taking my own advice. So, I decided to learn how to swim!! =] I think I was never really afraid of swimming pools or the fact that when I was younger, I probably some weird ass movie that had sharks in a swimming pool which made me never go in one after that. But no, I've grown out of that... for the most part! I finally faced my fear and ducked my head underwater! Haha! It's a pretty tiny accomplishment, I suppose? But to me, that means everything! And you know what, it really isn't as bad as I thought! I'm glad I have friends who are willing to support me! Thanks, you guys! <3

from where i'm standing
I somewhat watched the movie, "I'm Reed Fish." It wasn't that great, but I fell in love with this song! :D
It's been an amazing 3day weekend for the most part.
-I decorated my side of the room with post-it notes, a few pictures, stars... I was trying for an artsy look, but it's like artsy girly. Haha, whatever I suppose! I just thought it was about time I buckled down and started putting something on those bland white walls. Sheesh! I'm glad I did finally! I'll post pictures up soon! When I get a chance to straighten up my room and such and such... yeah!
-Badminton! I'm improving! Yay! :DD avec Mia! <3 style="font-style: italic;">beep! Haha, well I guess I'll be doing the same to him this friday...
-Green Fest... a lot of food? Haha, kinda defeats the main purpose... but yeah! I think I'm pretty green at the moment? I had a good time with my girl friends! xD Haha we were all comparing goodies that we got! :D Man, I really wanted that Planet Green bagg.... ANGIEEEE! I WANT IT! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! T_____T aw well. That mango apple wheatgrass was TASTY! & Hemp Soymilk... that was good! Haha!
-Film shopping? A lot of walking in a not-so-good neighborhood, but thank goodness I wasn't alone! :D Today was my first time working with John's camera (I named the camera, Tristan Dante!)... well when there's film in it! Pretty exciting! First time using B&W film as well! xD First time walking around downtown alone... well, because my friend parted ways with me (for like an hour?)... I was getting nervous having someone next to me who knows a lot more about photography... eeek! Anyhow, as I was walking, I realized I walked to where my brother works! Pretty sweet! and it just so happened that he was working right in front of the window! Unfortunately, I was trying to wave at him from ground level and he was on the 2nd floor, so... I just looked like a lunatic. He didn't see me at all! Boo!
...however, seeing my brother up there... doing what he's passionate about, that just really makes me happy! I'm glad that he chose what he loves to do and didn't let others get in the way of his decision! Kudos to him for staying strong and making my parents understand that he needs to choose his own path in life. I haven't seen my brother smile that way about anything since... I was a little kid. I'm glad he found out what he wanted to do. I'm glad to see his genuine smile! :D
-Pre-Thanksgiving dinner avec ROOMMATES! Thanks to them for preparing an amazing meal filled with tons of food! Haha! That pomegranate cider or whatever was REALLY GOOD! and Simon's mushroom gravy was SO GOOD! Haha! I <3 my roomies!!!
I can't wait until Friday! That's when I head home!! I'm really excited to go back home! As much as I love it here, I really miss home! I'm so envious of people who can go home on the weekends and eat their mommy's homemade meal. Ah! *drools* Haha, I'm sure my mom will look at me and be like... you lost weight?!! *Mom stuffs face with rice* xD Unfortunately, when I go home... I have to work. right when I get home for this Women's Expo. What a pain in the butt... -____- okay, but I'll think positive! A good way to boost up my confidence in public speaking! For some reason, I think doing sales makes me a better public speaker! Haha! We'll see... I'm getting my Macbook when I get home! HELL YEAH! I've been waiting since June! It was suppose to be my graduation gift! But of course, I waited because my eldest brother said that Apple was going to come out with a new OS. and they did. and it's out now... so! I can get my MACBOOK!!!! *giddy*
Okay, I really need to get to work! -ATM
