ups and downs

i'll be completely honest, i was getting concerned with the way i had been feeling lately with life and with jamella. But i figured out with help from a coworker that my small insecurities with life right now were what were causing me to overthink my relationship security. Things are good for me now, i'm back to happy go lucky and am happy to be where i'm at with jamella. My big two three if now officially a day away and i get to go to the huskies game thanks to lib. Hopefully i don't get called into work

lovin life

today was a good day
got out on the raft with matt, rachtha and maggie, floated and swam around the lake, got sunburned
ate at appethai with everyone plus jamella
took a sweet nap
played ball, we lost when we should've won, meh, still fun
went to tia's bday thing at kenmore lanes, met some cool people, bowled a 178
watched superbad with the roomies, even if 3 of the 5 decided to sleep before it was over

only bad part was feelings from the past like to rear their ugly heads at the oddest times, like watching superbad, shit still hurts man, shit still hurts

Wednesday, July 1, 2009


tend to get hurt
but i love playing basketball so much
another new injury this time, took a knee to knee on the proximal head of my left fibula
that was killer, i couldn't walk and still can't really put a lot of pressure on it
hopefully i can play ball tomorrow night

life is a little bit more fun now that i have my car

Monday, June 22, 2009


kind of came into a state of boredom immediately after graduation. my sleeping patterns have turned for the worse, but yesterday broke the monotony of the grad life

but yesterday was fathers day. didn't get much sleep and had to catch the 845 ferry. Turns out my dad had gone to church with the mom last night so i decided instead of church i would sleep since i had to drive btown to seattle later. but first i went and picked up the book of seattle sports lists (which i lost last week on the ferry) and gave it to my dad. He completely thought i was getting it again for myself.

My dad made the comment of being sad i was taking the car, because its his favorite car, which kind of made me sad to take it. I took his favorite car on fathers day :( But he'll see plenty of it in the future

the drive was horrible, the people who painted the doors left this weird film on the windshield and wipers, and when i drove through the rain my visibility was so bad. And then i hit the really hard rain and could hardly see, and then i hit the standing water on I-5 and was hydroplaning for like 10 miles straight, thunder and lightning, that was a crazy washington storm

workworkwork later

poker at emil's. tournament style threw me off a lot, but i somehow made it to the final two, but i was down huge to emil and it was winner take all. Easily 16-1 chip advantage for him. He let me get off easy the first couple hands, and then i started catching everything, made the right moves. Before you knew it I had come all the way back into a slight chip lead (two pair after the flop twice in a row). Slightly after that a Q10 hearts vs an AJ off-suit would decide it. Hit that queen on the flop and no help came for emil, what a run

having a car has so many damn advantages, now i need to just not get into an accident, not hit anyone, not get a ticket and pay for gas

Jamella and i have been together for six months now. I am the happiest ive been in a long time. Im at amber right now with the homies and they only way it would be better is if jamella was here. Happy six months baberz

Monday, June 15, 2009


it came and went, it seemed like it took forever for the last few days to pass, and now its over. I'm have officially made it through four years of college.

i worked my first shift at spag as a college grad

and jamella and I have been together for six months as of yesterday, crazy crazy crazy

Sunday, June 7, 2009

its over

I took my spanish final today, the last final of my undergrad career, maybe my education career

it started to hit me while i was at work, when i realized that i didn't have to go home and study or do any homework

Thursday, June 4, 2009

so close

Tonight was Fil Grad. The first of three graduation ceremonies for me. It really put things into perspective, how this whole journey through education is coming to a close. But like all of the speakers said tonight, its just the beginning of the journey, i don't leave my legacy, i take it with me.

congrats to all of tonights FASA grads and to anyone else graduating in 2009

observation(s) from spag

I finished my second day of server training today. Yesterday was food running which was nice, basically just nonstop taking food out and cleaning in the kitchen.

today was my bar class and starting on serving. Glad i got to work with mike today rather than tom (i get tom tomorrow), mike is a lot more chill than tom, probably the most of anyone in the restaurant. I kind of feel like serving there is a controlled madness. Basically you have complete control on your section, save for the fact that other people may bring out your food for you. But while you have this control, there is so much going on around you that its just like madness, but its madness that you don't have to deal with really so its cool.

so far its fun, i feel like i would have hated serving in silverdale, but here is really nice. Sections are set pretty well, theres plenty of staff who are almost always willing to help.

Theres so much I didn't know about working there while I was just a busser

esto es...

Muchos de los argumentos tienen puntos de la personalidad que personas que tienen hermanos. Pero yo soy un hijo único. Yo tengo dos padre y mis amigos. Muchos de mis tíos y tías viven en otros países y por lo tanto mi personalidad formo a mis experiencias con mis padres y mis amigos.
El mejor ejemplo de un rasgo de mis padres es que ellos son muy conservadores. Pienso que es un producto del año que mis padres nacieron. Los dos nacieron en los 1940s, una época muy conservadora. Y yo nací en una familia católica, un religión conservador. Pero también mis padres me ayudan mi personalidad social. Siempre me enseñaron que bebiendo las bebidas alcohólicas y fumando son muy malos y también jugando dinero no fue bueno. A este día nunca he fumado y no me gusta beber bebidas alcohólicas. A veces bebo pero no mucho.
Mis padres también me ayudan ser una persona optimista. Me enseñaron a hacer siempre mí mejor a todas las cosas, en la esquela, en la música o en otras cosas como deportes. Los dos de mis padres nunca trabajaron a trabajados extraordinarios pero siempre hizo bien y trato de ser como ellos.
Cuando fui un niño ser tímido. Pienso que es porque soy un hijo único y no tuve hermanos a jugar. En el cuarto grado empecé jugar al basquetbol en una liga de la ciudad. Me encontré personas diferente de mi esquela y empecé mi amor por los deporte y me gusté estar una parte de un equipo. Desde entonces, he trabajado bien con los demás. Y en la esquela secundaria establecido un grupo de amigos que extendió para los años siguientes y continuos a este día. Durante de estos años me enseñe que es bien a estar un poco de petardo y a veces es bien a estar un poco estúpido con mis amigos, pero con limitaciones. La vida no tiene que ser serio todo el tiempo.
Pero aprendí como un mediador del par que es lo mejor a resolver sus problemas con sus palabras. Pienso que la lucha contra la no demuestra que vale la pena o que te hace un hombre pero a ser un verdadero hombre debe ser lo que es correcto. Esto es mi personalidad.

Randoms for the night

I was shaving today. I had just enough shaving cream to cover my face. I have had that shaving cream I think since i was a freshman. I am near graduation as a senior, and it just ran out. Talk about a strange realization.

I love the little stupid things in life. Like seeing a moped go 15 mph down linden ave, with seven cars backed up behind it. They were going slow enough that i could see all the drivers' expression. A look of "WTF?!" on all their faces just made me laugh.

I am pretty damn good with time. It seems like everytime i tell someone I will be there in so-and-so minutes, I am there in so-and-so minutes. And it happened again tonight. I got off the phone with Jamella at 10:24 after work and told her i would be home in 12 minutes. Kind of specific right? I walked into my room 12 minutes later at 10:36.

Writing a spanish essay about personality really made me think hard about what has shaped my personality. I believe the product of my one-ish page spanish essay is up to par with anything i have written in english the entire time i have been at UW.

fantasy baseball

i'm addicted

could i please get someone to light a fire under grady sizemore, my number one pick is just utterly letting me down

Friday, April 10, 2009


Nick Adenhart was only three weeks older than I am now. Theres one main thing that differed between us though, he was a major league pitcher...


he had just pitched the best game of his young career, six shut out innings...

he had been with the angel's organization for four years and Angel's manager Mike Scioscia said he had grown more in those four years than anyone else

and now its all gone...

because someone with a suspended license stemming from drunk driving in 2006
who had his probation extended because of violations to that probation
had to run a red light
with his blood alcohol content three times the legal limit

today he was charged with three counts of murder, driving under the influence, and leaving the crime scene... but it all comes too late, three people are dead

my heart goes out to the angel's organization
to their pitching staff
and to torii hunter... who has to run out to center field every home game looking at Nick Adenhart's likeness emblazoned on the center field wall

I wish i could go to the anaheim memorial and contribute, and pay respects, because even though I never knew him or have ever had anything to do with anyone in major league baseball, sports are near and dear to me, and when tragedy strikes it hurts my heart too

the quarter so far

animal learning lab is awesome. Its known as the rat lab to those of you not in the psychology loop. I named my rat rhino... anyone seen bolt?
Spanish 103... i still don't like speaking aloud in spanish, but I don't feel as bad when i hear other people speak heh
Psych 470- psych and music. This class is pretty sweet, although its gonna be a lot of work. Its basically a seminar class thats not considered a seminar, everyone has to do a research project and present it.
I made it through my entire college education without having to do a presentation in front of the class, and now i get an old fashioned professor HA, lame

besides that, started to work out. Finally have time to make it to the ima during the day, yay for 2 hour break. Keep playin basketball, keep rolling my ankle, finally time to get an ankle brace.

Next week, April 14, Wong Fu Productions comes to the HUB, yay for re-release tickets. Thats also me and jamella's 4 months :D

that weekend, FASA conference WOO

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

starting with a bang

the start to spring has been awesome. I've been craving the sun and warmth for so long now

yesterday jamella and I went kayaking on greenlake. One hour for 14 dollars, kind of a steep price but well worth it, went all the way across. We ate at cheesecake factory and then went to gameworks too yaayy

today was a great day too, lunch with matt and rachtha on the ave, showed my parents and my uncle around campus, got to see the cherry blossoms. Then at home we chilled out for a bit before all of us, plus matt rachtha and nala walked all the way around greenlake. That puppy is a chick magnet for reals. I'm not sure what i'm more surprised at, that my parents went all the way around the lake, or that nala made it almost all the way around, she stopped to lay down randomly... a lot

the unc-michigan st game, yea i called that one as i'm sure most of you did

the mariners game WOOOO GRIFFEY'S BACK BABY, hopefully he hits well this year and stays healthy, hey the mariners are tied for first right now

Saturday, March 28, 2009

march 28th

its not a good day to remember, and its not even the exact milestone of the start to a dark time in my life

the exact date would be one month from today, april 28th, but I have kind of been thinking about it for the passed couple weeks

in many ways i still struggle with what went down, thats not to say that i haven't moved on, but it still hurts to this day, especially dwelling on the events that went on immediately after that day last year and throughout the summer

it's been 11 months but there are still SO many reminders, i just can't get away from them

one of your reminders just passed a few days ago, your birthday... i resisted any and all tempation to make any sort of communication, and for me that was a really hard, but i got passed it and it really felt like a step in the right direction

i wasn't happy with the way it happened 11 months ago, and the way things happened after
and honestly, i'm still not
but i am happy with where it has lead me... where i am today

Thursday, March 26, 2009


no not a car, man i wish i had a bmw, ok not really

but we have a new puppy, it was supposed to be a girl, and we were calling it nala for about 3 hours...

then matt decided to pet its belly, and realized, unquestionably, that its a boy

pics to come hopefully

Wednesday, March 25, 2009


even if i do absolutely nothing while i'm here

its good to be home

Sunday, March 22, 2009

spending money

its just so easy

me and matt went to tulalip today

i got some huarache 08 basketball shoes
also went to walmart up there and i got a new basketball, an 8 gb jump drive, and pokemon platinum... i'm a nerd so what
went to dairy queen too woooooo

on the way home we went on 99 all the way from everett to greenlake, a lot more interesting than driving i5

and we were this close to going to vegas... TONIGHT

tonight was well, just short of epic... for no apparent reason

i got off work and it was just like any other night, catch a ride home, chill out, talk to jamella, watch some tv, read up on the day in sports

but then matt asked if i wanted to go to pochis, of course a yes
met up with rachtha who was getting off work, chilled out a bit
searched for a lighted basketball court at 1 am, finally ended up at greenlake which we knew wasn't lit in the first place so we didn't check there first, we played by the light from the security lights
some random dude and girl walked by and we played 21 with the guy and talked with the girl, they smelled strongly of alcohol of course, hella cool people. matt won the game, but not before i went from zero to 19 before he went from 19 to 21
then we were gonna get jack in the box, but jack on aurora had like a 12 car line, so we were gonna get dicks, but it closed at 2... not 3... then we were gonna get wendy's in ballard, which closed at 2 and not 3... so we drove and found a jack, got three combos and drove.
passed the Lenin statue in fremont, i had never seen it before, i mentioned i had never been to the troll but matt said not now haha
at home we ate and watched family matters and talked about, well everything important in life, from what happened at work, to what happened last night, to what happened in junior high, and elementary school... i think we touched on every subject humanly possible

and then matt brought up that its really cheap to go to vegas right now, a suite for 500, rachtha said he could make that on the blackjack table in 2 minutes...

i looked up and said "lets go,"
matt looked at me and said "no i'm serious"
and i said "SO AM I!"
we looked at rachtha and he looked down and said "i have work tomorrow, its not that i have the job, its that people need me to be places"

and with that, we were THIS close to ACTUALLY going to Vegas... i was ready to pack some clothes and be gone until wednesday...

Thursday, March 19, 2009

the end of finals week

well for me and jaja at least

my test was, well meh
goin to primate lab still every day, i'm really sad i won't have time for it next quarter, hopefully i can get a staff job there after graduation... scary, graduation

Me and Jamella went to EMP, that was awesome, I love the grunge exhibits, and seeing Jimi Hendrix' guitar that he played at Woodstock, oh and taking pics that we're not supposed to take

Last night was our St Patty's Day party, man that was fun. Just a small party like usual, beer pong, this time we played Kings Cup, and a nice friendly visit to the toilet bowl... i now have an aversion to pizza, but damn that pizza was good

Today my parents and uncle came over, i'm so happy my uncle finally immigrated from the PI. He got to talk to everyone back in the PI via webcam while he was here and you could tell he was happy. I got to give him his presents too, the UW championship shirt and a hat, i ended up giving him one of my old hats cause the new one was too big for him. My parents bought me a knew mattress too, so now i have a bigger bed, they took my old mattress home for Uncle Ric.

Also tonight we had our double header... with five people... after a party! The first game was just bad, i only scored six points but Craig had like 26. We lost, pretty bad. Second game was crazy. We put up more than 150 points combined and I had 30 of our 77. Too bad we lost by 9. Man playing a double header with only five people SUCKS. If we had our other two guys, we would probably win those games.

And now tomorrow, seein Under the Sea 3D at imax, lab, home, work... sheesh its just nonstop even though i'm done with finals

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Sunday, March 15, 2009

the passed few days

a lot has happened

i finished my paper that was due friday... on wednesday night! wow i can't remember hte last time i finished something early
then me and onel did our poster on thursday in order to present it on friday

Brian's surprise bday thing was awesome, and jamella has really turned me on to sushi. And i can't believe that i like raw fish now, salmon sashimi is so good

i worked a double today, and for my hard work, i had 50 dollars stolen out of my wallet, in my jacket pocket, in my locker. it was my tip money from lunch. I don't feel extremely bad about it, they didn't take my ipod or my phone, but i'm still fuckin pissed. I'm pretty sure it was someone from the kitchen, one of the guys was sitting there while i put my wallet in my jacket

tomorrow me and jamella are going to see under the sea 3d at imax, then eating red mill burger, then getting fish, then who knows what else

Wednesday, March 11, 2009


jamella and i got three today

red- "coral"
green- "viper"
orange- "rufus"

a glofish is a danio that was once genetically altered to search for certain strains of disease, they were bred, and now we have them today, chemical free, but very colorful and bright and glow under black light

we plan on getting three more

we are also going to get three black skirt tetras that generally stay in the middle of the tank and a plecostomus for algae eating purposes. We're also gonna get a couple bottom dwelling fish, but haven't decided what yet

I will post a picture of our aquarium here in a couple days probably

Tuesday, March 10, 2009


how exciting...

jamella and I got a fish tank. Ten gallons to be exact, i'm listening to the filter motor as we speak, it will never stop making that noise i don't think haha

the tank deluxe starter kit, then gravel, plants, and a couple decorative rocks = over 100 dollars

now we need fish :P

dear god am i happy that my tax refund went into my account, i would've overdrawn if that hadn't happened

Monday, March 9, 2009

what a weekend...

got to chill out with jamellas family, eat food, play video games, attempt at riding a ripstick (so freakin hard), DRIVE wooooo

got to see my uncle ric for the first time in oh uhh ten years. He FINALLY immigrated here from the PI, FINALLY made it, next step is getting my auntie eli here. Jamella got to meet him too. Yay for going back to Bremerton for a day

i spent over an hour on seth before i angrily shut off the xbox (after angrily hitting my couch with my controller a few... thousand times)

i want to know what was going through the programmers heads when they made seth for the end of arcade mode

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

Thursday, February 26, 2009


Dear snow,

You're fucking up my education (at least today)


me and jamella woke up early today too! Well I guess I woke up earlier than usual.
Had to walk down to aurora to catch the bus
then waited with no avail for the 44, a woman told us it hadn't come for an hour, then one did, and it went straight past... full
We went back to the 358 and managed to get home
I still have to get to my lab at 1230 downtown, and work at 5


i feel bad

i didn't go to church today. I meant to go early this morning, but it proved to be too early for me (9 am at St. Johns). I woke up at 12 pm in order to get down to my lab only slightly late

I'm sure there was probably an afternoon mass somewhere, but I chose to go to tulalip outlets with the guys and jamella. It had been my idea in the first place to go on tuesday but Matt said tomorrow and I said yea that works without thinking about it, so I didn't want to back out.

I could've gone tonight but we had the basketball game, Francis didn't play tonight cause he went to church.

Whats done is done I guess, but some prayer is in store...

Warning: basketball analysis ahead

Like every wednesday matt, myself, and the rest of the guys had our PSBL game tonight. We were 8.5 point underdogs, felt slapped in the face. We kept it close through the first half or so of the first half, then the other team built up a lead that we couldn't come back from. Part of it I suppose was a lack of energy on our part, but their team just had too much size. They were able to pass over us and shoot over us pretty easily.

A couple good things came out of the game. Our energy was good to start the game. I had 2 fast break layups, a three, and split a pair of free throws within the first 7 minutes, before i got a sub. At the start of the second half we were able to light the fire a little, played with some pretty good energy. My defense was better tonight but I still need to pick it up. I hit a 3 and got fouled, hit the free throw. First 4 point play for me... ever i think.

Couple bad things, we don't rebound well against teams with size. We don't play well in a half court set. At least when it comes to dribble penetration. We take a lot of threes, its okay when we make them, but we've settled into a pretty average 3 pt percentage I think. I have at least. I was probably 2 for 3 or 4 tonight. I can't remember.

Number five, whoever you are, have a little sportsmanship. You came up to me after the game, about 15 game minutes AFTER you knocked me off balance from behind and i hyper extended my knee. Not to mention you also pretty much tackled matt out of the air, without as much as a word of apology. I didn't care about mine, I didn't really think about it, I was in too much pain, but the guys noticed it. Grow a pair, don't walk away like you didn't do anything...

as for the knee, i remember every part of what happened. I got clipped from behind, went off balance while moving forward, penciled my leg into the ground proceeding to hyper extend my knee. It felt like my patella slammed into my tibia. I've never had a knee injury before, and I don't want another one. A guy that I remember playing before was nice enough to give me his ice pack (ironic that that guy is probably in his 60s), number 31 thanks man. I REALLY didn't want to extend my leg back out after i curled it in laying on the floor, nor did i want to stand up, but the guys pulled me off the court, I think it was Stuart and Peter. After i got that ice pack i was able to extend it out all the way, having to watch us lose the game for 15 minutes on the bench. Walking out of the gym was not fun, but we stopped at 7-11 and got a bag of ice, I iced 3 times in total and took tylenol. It feels better now, but I still feel the pain, hopefully it'll be better than worse tomorrow

the Lenten Season

it is now an hour and a half old

my sacrifices are weak this year
chocolate, soda

Lent isn't supposed to be about giving up little things that you'll just put back into your life as soon as these 40 days are up though. You should be taking out things that are truly bad for you, and keep them out of your life. But really I don't know what things I would take out, I don't mean to be conceited by any means, but I just don't know.

But i'm also really seriously going to add more prayer into my life, i don't do enough of it, and what better time than lent

I said that last year, and it didn't really work, pray for me, that i'm able to start praying more and keep up with it. I also need to get back into the routine of going to church. This is the first year I haven't gone literally EVERY sunday, and i've really only been going about once or twice a month. I haven't even gone to Newman Center this year. I've gone to two churches in Seattle and one in Bremerton, but not Newman. Well it doesn't matter where I go, but I just want to get back in the routine of EVERY sunday, get it? good, cause i need to get it

As for my sacrifices, jamella pointed out that i eat a lot of chocolate. I never thought anything of it, but I really do, and so she basically challenged me to do it. So when we were at Westlake on Monday we went to candy tyme and i got $18.50 worth. Mostly chocolate with a couple peanut butter malt balls and a couple rock candy strings. Tonight, I finished (with a little help from jaja) all but one pb malt ball and the rock candy, and some white chocolate. Damn thats a lot of chocolate.

For soda, we get jones a lot from the dorm, and since i started working at spaghetti factory, I drink a lot of soda during my shifts. I've taken to mixing cherry coke and root beer, its pretty tasty to me. I've always mixed my sodas though. So i'll be giving that up, water at work and more juices and milk and water at home.

As for now i must sleep and hope to be able to wake up and make it to church in the morning... good night anyone who reads this

welcome to the beginning of the end

that is to say of my college career

i registered for spring quarter this morning, last quarter before graduation, unless i have to take summer that would suck
psych 470 - psych and music
psych 332 - animal performance lab
i thought about taking a psych class called insects instead, i'm still thinking about that

i had to take a test today too, which i crammed for until like 3 am, then woke up at 550 to register before 6 am, oh yea i got the second to last spot in psych 470 :D awesome feeling

the test went better than my last... i hope
i also had to take a spanish placement test, i fell asleep in jamellas dorm and didn't get enough review that i had wanted to do, OH WELL

i had hoped to place out of spanish, but i'm pretty sure i did well enough to get into third quarter, hopefully i get my scores and am able to register for 103 before all the sections close

after that i got to RELAX
we ate red mill burger for the first time since jamella is giving up red meat for lent
we watched dane cook on my comp and russell peters on youtube
i played a bunch of top spin 3 for the first time in like a week cause of all the damn school stuff

and now its 133 am and i'm gonna try and make it to an early mass for ash wednesday, must sleep

filipino veterans

your day has finally come

what president truman took away in the rescission act in 1946 has been given back to you in 2009

250,000 of you then were cheated of your military benefits
the 15,000 of you today are finally recognized for your support of the US

our country is finally honoring our heroes, and remembering those who have fallen


good follow up article sent to me by eva


the p word
its been the name of the game as of late

managed to wake up late to go to the zoo, but did spend a good two hours watching baby uzumma run around with mama amanda and sister calaya. mom is letting her be much more independent and shes climbing and swinging a lot more now

instead of going home to study, at 330 i headed to campus to get jamella. We got to my house around 530 i guess. between six and eight i guess i studied some, then we were gonna go to red mill burger, only to realize that it closes at eight on sundays. damn. So we cooked lumpia :D that she brought from home

ate and watched MIB2 wooooo

DIDN'T study until like 1130 wow. went through all my psych notes, the absolute worst way to study. At least my test isn't til tuesday. Now i'm gonna do more rosetta stone

don't want to take too much

from the times mariners blog but i couldn't resist

this is just too good, gives me goosebumps

that silky smooth swing is orgasmic, i can't wait to get to the games early and try and catch some griffey bp homeruns

taken from Seattle Times Mariners blog

Ken Griffey Jr on Seattle, Chuck Armstrong, and Ichiro

the best part of the video, talking about Ichiro...
"I plan on having him take me to dinner at least four or five times a week,'' Griffey said. "Being that I haven't been in the American League, I figure that there are some new restaurants he can take me to. As long as he does not dress the way he has. He may have to change his wardrobe. He can't wear skinny ties. Those went out with Duran Duran.

i have problems

with procrastination, damn

was supposed to go to the zoo, study spanish, study psych

instead i woke up at 1 and did nothing but clean, eat, and watch basketball

and now i have to work from 4 until at least 1115

sports musings

...Nate Robinson is ridiculous...
...Amare out for rest of regular season, KG out 2-3 weeks, Granger out... wow fantasy basketball team got hot right before the allstar break, they're back to meh...
...RIP Larry H Miller, Jazz GM.

...Dale Jr is the man. wait, ovechkin is the man. no no Nate the Great is still the man, and ridiculous, did you see that block on bosh? or that split the d lose the ball recover spin travel but not have it called and make the layup?

...welcome back Griffey Jr, i'm ecstatic as a Mariners fan, i'm skeptical as a baseball fan. But for the price it can't really hurt the team, and hes a great clubhouse guy, heres to being able to see him come full circle, my sports idol as a little boy has returned

There is just something about the sun... i know i don't have S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder) but when the sun comes out I just feel happier. It probably is this way for a lot of people, but its worth note for me, I feel like I have more of a spring in my step...

I've had a crazy day so far.

930 at the zoo to see baby Uzumma and mother Amanda, the gorillas i'm doing my observational study on. Uzumma is the cutest thing in that zoo besides the new baby ocelots.

1045 leave the zoo and catch a bus with jaja. Get to campus at like 1115, manage to get food in by george, run upstairs to odegaard and print out my paper, eat really quick, say bye to her for the weekend, and then sprint to my class in the chem library to turn in my paper at 1130.

1220 head to the bus to make my way down to the Western lab on bus 30. Got to see a different side of Seattle riding that bus, I want to explore Fremont more.

115 arrive at the Western lab and tour the area. Oh how i love the monkeys. Hopefully i'll be able to get a staff job in there after graduation since I probably will be too busy to keep the student job there next quarter.

2 leave the lab and hop the 358 home

I have work at 615 tonight down at Spag which is like 2 blocks away from the lab. It will be nice when I have work right after lab. Can just bring my clothes with me.

as for now, i should really get some studying done, either some spanish via rosetta stone, or some of my psych stuff. have tests on both next tuesday. But i'll probably end up eating something and taking a nap, yea that sounds like a good plan...


it is nearly 2 am, i should be finishing my short paper, yet i haven't even started writing it yet.

its okay its only two pages double spaced

but I found a new way to procrastinate, I've had a livejournal since like 7th grade but haven't consistently used it since freshman year

we'll see if i use this more...

welcome to my world
