I've had..

-I've had too many blogs in my lifetime. livejournal/xanga/blogspot. IT NEEDS TO STOP. It's hard to stroll down memory lane when there are MULTIPLE memory lanes.
-I've been saying goodbye to people TOO much these past two weeks: the Londoners, Jason, Annie, RJ, and soon to be saying bye to Mr. and Mrs. Rasay. People need to stop leaving my life.
-The boyfriend may soon be added to that list as he pursues his dreams of playing in the PBA. And it's not even a slim chance that he's gonna make it. There's a VERY GOOD chance that he will make it and then I'll have to say bye to him. Only temporarily though and WE WILL make it work. We're soulmates. That doesn't change the fact that it will probably be the hardest thing in my life to do. We haven't even been able to talk about it without me starting to cry. =/ It's ok. We'll be fine.

Quote of the day: "I've decided to stick with LOVE. Hate is too great a burden to bear." -MLK JR.

Just bored and felt like posting although I didn't have anything significant to say,

As I wait for the coffee to calm down...

..I haven't updated in a while. I actually don't even know if I have anything worth updating about. Scratch that--EVERYTHING is worth updating about. My super cool Sociology teacher who reminds me of the professor from Back to the Future has taught me the important lesson that I should never think anything is boring and that I should never EVER use the sentence "I AM BORED." I forgot what exactly he said that made that philosophy stick. I just remember sitting in his class and nodding in TOTAL agreement when he said that it should be IMPOSSIBLE to be bored. OH. I think he talked about how kids in less affluent countries will NEVER EVER use the sentence "I'M BORED." We're spoiled and should never be bored. 

That wasn't even what I wanted to update about, but I got off on a tangent. Sorry.


I'm supposed to be doing my paper for English right now. I had a cup of coffee and had a really good momentum going, but then I made the mistake of having a second cup of coffee so now i'm UBER-alert and all over the place. I need to wait for the coffee to settle so I can refocus on my paper. So in the mean I am. 

I can't narrow my focus long enough to concentrate on one subject so I'm just gonna stick in a quote that I've been mulling over for the past few days now:

"Part of our emergency is that it's so tempting to do this sort of thing now, to retreat to narrow arrogance, pre-formed positions, rigid filters, the 'moral clarity' of the immature. The alternative is dealing with massive, high-entropy amounts of info and ambiguity and conflict and flux; it's continually discovering new ares of personal ignorance and delusion. In sum, to really try to be informed and literate today is to feel stupid nearly all the time and to need help. That's about as clearly as I can put it" - David Foster Wallace

Never accept things at face value. Go out and educate yourself. You may feel stupid at first for realizing how ignorant you once were, but once you get past that feeling you'll feel MUCH better about yourself. I promise. As cliche' as it sounds: KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. We live in too corrupt a society to not examine issues (social, religious, or otherwise) for ourselves. 

And on that note...back to my homework.

This last week of school... kickin my behind. 

This is the second night this week that I've been up past 3 to finish a paper. And to top it all off, on everyday that I don't have school, I have work to worry about. Gotta love that holiday season. Sorry, I don't mean to be a Grinch. I'm sure my mood will lift as soon as I get this last history paper in. Then I just have my last English essay to do and I'm DONE DONE DONE.

Before I shower...

It's been awhile since I last updated. So here's what has been going on:

1. Kupaul is in town from London for two weeks. I missed him a lot and he's seriously one of the nicest people I know. I can't wait for his and Ate Christine's wedding. I'm going to cry my eyes out. They give hope to long distance relationships. 

3. We had a cute cousin dinner the other night at BWW. It was seriously the cutest thing ever. It was Soul Food status. Everyone was there and you could just feel the love around the table. I can't say it enough: I LOVE MY COUSINS.

2. Thanksgiving just passed! We had our annual Turkey Bowl and it was a blast. It makes me sad that it's only a once a year thing, but at least there's always something to look forward to. I'm so thankful for the people in my life and even for those who are no longer a part of it because the helped shape who I am today. But of course, ALL my thanks goes to God. It amazes me how much he's blessed me. 

3. I experienced my first Black Friday working at Best Buy, working a 5AM to 1PM shift. MY MY MY does it get crazy in there. It was fun though, but I don't think I ever TRULY knew how it felt to be EXHAUSTED until that day. I'm STILL recovering. 

4. Me and Gene are good. Always growing, always learning, always LOVING. 

5. It's my dad's birthday today. 

6. That's it.

Hey, I have a question..

When is THIS tour gonna happen, because it would be a good one. It would probably be the best tour ever actually. The should really consider it.

So I've been pretty much doing homework and studying all day. I hate that I ALWAYS have writer's block when I need to write for life. I'm easily distracted when I study. It sucks. If only I had the Santa Maria discipline to sit myself down and do what I intended to do. *sigh* Oh is found in the imperfections right? I just thank the Lord that I've found that someone who loves me despite my MANY imperfections. My goodness I don't know what I'd do without Gene Quiocho. 

Anyway, this Friday marks the 21st birthday of my brother-like cousin Deejay Gabriel. He is honestly one of the nicest guys I know and I pray for nothing but the best for him. He most definitely deserves it. He's one of those guys that just always makes you laugh, is always optimistic, and is NEVER caught up in petty drama. If he were a phrase he would mos def be something along the lines of "Don't worry, be happy." =) Love you Deejay Gabriel--you are definitely one of the most important men in my life--third only to my brother and Gene.

CRACKberry.. dead on. I should be sleeping so I can get up early and study all day tomorrow, but instead I'm online researching all the cool things I can do with my phone. =/ Consequence of working with cell phones all day I suppose. And I think I'm subconsciously trying to prove that my cute blackberry curve is better than the Iphone/BB Bold/BB Storm. 

UGH. This is probably the geekiest post of my life. Let me change the subject to something more meaningful so I can sound less materialistic.

"Look me in the eye. 
It's okay if you're scared. 
So am I. 
But we're scared for different reasons. 
I'm scared of what I might not become. 
You're scared of what I could become."
