Another Year Ends [11 Jun 2007|11:16pm]
Haven’t updated on my life in long time…

College has been amazing, I’m still kinda not believing that my first year is almost over. The fact that I have finals still makes me think that its just any other quarter. But every time I walk into someone’s room that is packing, it just breaks my heart and brings me back to reality. I know that things are going to change next year, but I know that my closest friends are still going to be there right next to me. I am living with 3 of my bestest friends from the dorms, and some of my bestest guy friends will be living right across the street from us. Wed we are moving into our apartment in Cornell Court and I know that my time there will be amazing, and I can’t wait to make that place my home for the next 3 years. I am just so thankful of my college expierence and how it has made me grow as a person. The only bad thing about it would be that I have gotten way moodier than I ever was, but my friends understand and love and accept me the way I am I love that. I was born and raised in the Bay Area, but lately I can really call Irvine my home, and am so glad that I have had the opportunity to come here for college.
This summer I will be staying in Irvine pretty much the whole summer along with a bunch of my other friends, taking Summer school. I will be home June 18-23, the first week of August and the 2nd week of September. I am so sorry for not being home, but while I’m home I have to make the most of it! Lets make some plans guys! :)
Now its crucial that I go back to studying for my finals, because my grades are so borderline, and I really want to bring up my GPA this quarter! :)

its almost over [01 Sep 2006|06:39am]

Summer has been going along great lately, I am so happy that I have fun friends and family. As each day goes by i realize that my time here is limited. I went to the lake yesterday because i didn't feel like yogaing, so i took a lap and it just felt so peaceful and calm, so i just took another lap, and then i just sat there and watched the water lighted by the sunset. I really am going to miss this place and the people here. I've spent about 14 years of my life in Fremont, and this will always be my home.. <3

Now that I have no work all I ever do is, watch movies (usually at TAPEX), go to yoga, shopping, or just go sit with my friends and talk for hours. Each and everyday I have to say "see you later" to another person, but because we are friends I know that we'll one day see each other again. If you think about it, everyone is going off on their adventure and we all will evenutally come back around winter time and share our stories with one another.

I've done so much this summer but just hanging out with friends is the best part. Today was Jessica Chiu's birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESSICA! <333 So i took her to bagel shop for a Birthday brunch and bought a bagel and PINK strawberry creamcheese, and a pink starbucks drink, then Connie came and we just hung out. It was so cute when MSJ lunchtime came around! I saw SRS! like steph angel and annie scobel! <3 Everyone kept asking me if i was ever going to college because I see the mission kids everywhere. Then we left to go to Ohlone Deli because Dennis was there with Michael Le. Right when we got there Michael was about to leave :( because he had to drop ellen and amy au <333 back to Mission. So then we just hung out at Ohlone Deli for a little while before i had to go pick up Marcus and Clare to go to Bryan Han's going away lunch. So then me, Marcus, Clare, Eric and Bryan have fun at Elephant Bar. <3 MUD PIE :) Afterwards Bryan, Marcus and I go look at books at Borders and I drive us back to Bryan's house. After that it was jus pure fun! Lots of SuperSmash Bros, Food, Connect Four, Scrabble/Pirates POOLYIPHUS? HAHHA clare!! Then it got very interesting when we played the naked game! YAY i was so on a roll today! MARCUS SWEATY HUGS, COACH BURBERRY LACOSTE, RIGHT TO LIFE! hahha Then we ate some awesome food thanks to Bryan's mom and dad!! :) Afterwords we played many rounds of Mafia! haha I even was "Professor Mcgonagall" (GOD) for our Mafia set in hogwarts! :D The best game of mafia was the last game when i was Mafia and seriouslly convinced Eric i was not! hahha *sigh* today was such a good day! Thanks so much to Bryan for hosting us and i'm glad we got to spend this time before you leave! I totally got to know you so much better right before you leave! :(

Okay i must sleep now before amy chiu KILLS me (prob cuz i voted for her to die when she was my mafia buddy) haha i'm going to Stanford Shopping Center with her tmw! WEEEEE BYE

wow i'm so bad i haven't updated in ages! well summer seems to be flowing well pretty well.. i'm still working 40 hr weeks from tues-sat just until aug 19th! the job is not that bad and it's nice having money to spend during the summer and not having to ask my parents. i TRY to spend time with friends as much as possible but it's hard because my parents are very strict lately and i'm just so tired from work. since i've came back from aus i have had random hangouts with lots of my friends. I went to see RENT in san francisco with DC! :D we even got to meet the stars and get autographs! (look at pics) i took a trip to SOCAL to hang out with my cousins and to attend mini spop at Irvine. I'm registaring for classes next week but i'm still a little unsure about what i'm doing!! i have attended a lot of parties and even help put together our Old/New DC dinner and sleepover. That night was very interesting because we were at Elephant Bar and someone got shot outside =X Everything turned out to be okay and we had a lot of fun that night, it was nice to be around most of old DC again and fun to meet the new generation. The days are just going by slowly and it's kind of scary because starting this weekend my friends will start leaving and going to college... i will miss everyone so much and will enjoy my last month before i leave too...



sorry if my entry doesn't make sense, it's late! =X

o yahh

I am back from my trip to Australia and New Zealand! :) The trip was awesome! i will make a nice long post later about everything with pictures!

For the two weeks i was gone a lot of stuff changed around here. But you just have to deal with it i guess...

i have bad news tho...my car was stolen last friday night! :( my 91 toyota camry was taken and my dad's 03 GS300 was fine...haha... o well i guess i will be getting a car soon? i hope so, i feel so helpless without having a ride.

i might be starting work in a few days at my uncle's dentist office....but if i do i have like no time to hang out cuz i would work tues-sat 9-5! but its a great oppritunity to save up some money!

right now i just want to get over my jetlag!

tmw is the day. [15 Jun 2006|05:34am]
I keep thinking about it and i start to cry. even though we aren't leaving just yet, it all feels to sudden. i just want to tell everyone in the class of 2006 that i really love all of you, and am going to miss you so much next year. i have spent 13 years in the same school district! i've been going to school with some of the same people for the longest time. everyone has made a difference to me in my life, and i can proudly say that i am apart of msjhs class of 2006.

if you see my around school and i am crying, you might as well just give me a hug and cry with me. :)

i would like all my friends that aren't graduating tmw to come to TAK to see us all graduate! It starts at 7pm so be sure to get there early!

there will be major picture posting next week before i leave for aus and new zealand!

i love you all!

"Nothing is forever

and the time comes

when we must all say goodbye

to the world we knew.

Goodbye to everything we had taken for granted

Goodbye to those we thought would never abandon us.

And when these changes

finally do occur,

when the familiar has departed

and the unfamiliar has taken its place,

all any of us can really do

is to say hello and welcome "

it is kind of funny how in the beginning of track season i was really thinking of quitting, but i didn't because there wasn't anyone else on the team, and i don't like to give up. Suddenly the throwing team grew and i made a lot of friends with little underclassmen throwers. We laughed and joked through the whole season. Had numerous dinners at Sweet Tomatoes which consisted of me driopping food on myself. Made plans on how i'd make ALex a 40 year old virgin @ Irvine, and laughing at all the throwers getting pooped on by birds :) I am so glad i did not quit, because i got to meet such great people and have so many good times. I just came home from our Track banquet and i can't stop thinking about how I am going to miss the team so much. April and Jen i so know how you felt last year! =( But there were some highlights of the banquet! I got to see APRIL again! <3 <3 even though i saw her at the mall yesterday! i FINALLY recieved my VARSITY LETTER!!! And i got a gift from the little throwers (30$ AE CARD! & a fun filled card) <3 <3 I love you guys so much and thanks for everything!

Tmw is my LAST medex meeting, after being in the club for 4 years it is almost over!

Day by day I am letting everything go. . .

jackie and i got stuck in the boys hotel because we signed up for rooms to late, we totally missed out! cuz the girls hotel was SOO MUCH prettier!! well atleast our rooms were bigger!

highlight of my trip!
there was this bead store where you make jewlrey and i made a charm braclet for a lil less than 10 bucks!

-OM ( religion)
-Turtle ( AREA 5!)
-Topaz (birth stone)
-shoe ( iono why i picked it, but it's cute!)
-California (it has san fransico and LA labeled, NORCAL SOCAL my two homes!)
- a heart that says "He who holds the key can unlock my heart", and there is a key that fits in with the heart. I am gonna be a hopeless romantic and one day literally give this key to someone! =P

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.
Succeed anyway.
What you spend your years building, someone may try to destroy overnight.
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, others may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.

I think I am gonna cry [30 Apr 2006|10:07pm]
Okay so there is still some time before the school ends but it just seems to be more real every single day.

For the past three days i've been at the Santa Clara Marriot working at the Rotary Conferance. I was helping sell raffle tickets to send interactors to Denmark and Sweden for a International Rotary Conferance ( i can't go because graduation gets in the way! =( ) It was really fun i think we raised about almost 3000 bucks towards the trip, because rotarians are just too nice! Seriously the Rotarians i met this weekend are so cute !:)

Today I woke up at 6am to take frances and tiffany down to the Marriot for the Interact Talent Showcase. I had to introduce myself and my area to a lot of Rotarians. Frances and Tiff did their lil Tahitan dance and it seemed like the Rotarians like it alot! Then Michelle, Allison, Shamil and I went over to get gifts for Court/Bjay and the DC Advisors. We came back to set up for the Annual Interact Spring Banquet.

I feel like crying every time i think about how today was my last Spring Banquet, and how the Interact year is almost over. I am so greatful that I was able to be apart of this great club and was able to be on District Council this year. Even though I have spent so many hours stressing out, it has all be worth it. I love everyone I have met this year with all my heart, and I will miss them dearly next year. I know that life goes on, and we just have to go with the flow, but right now it is hard to let go.

This fall i will be going to UC Irvine and am going to get involved in the Rotaract Club there, and maybe one day I will be come a Rotarian too....:)

But for now I must do all my make up work!

p.s. Who ever saw that video at the Banquet today, sorry for my wild behavior...LOL it was all spur in the moment...
