Quote of the Day

Sorry...I've been gone for a while, finals kind of took priority over posting :p

Guess what I'm Watching :D

Mushu: Did you see those Huns? They popped out of the snow, like daisies!

Yao: I'm gonna hit you so hard, it'll make your ancestors dizzy.

The Emperor of China: You don't meet a girl like that every dynasty.

Fa Zhou: The greatest gift and having you as a daughter.

Grandmother Fa: Who spit in her bean curd?

Shang: Ping, you' are the craziest man I've ever met, and for that I owe you my life. From now on, you have my trust.

Mushu: My little baby, off to destroy people.

...I love this movie =]
Haha although I'm actually not watching it anymore. I was, but now I'm watching Spirit.
My normal-people live TV isn't working, so the only thing I'm able to watch are VHS's and DVD's :p

My VHS player scares me.

I've noticed that when I watch a movie (on a video-tape) and then I fall asleep, when I wake up the video tape has been rewound. This happens every time.

I really wanted to know why so I decided to conduct an experiment. I put a movie on and then let it play way past the credits until the screen went black. After a minute or two the screen went from black to a static black and white. I let it play like that for about ten minutes and nothing happened. It didn't rewind.

It doesn't rewind itself while I'm awake but it does if I fall asleep and the movie ends. I don't understand, how is it doing this?

...Oh well, I guess the world may never know.

The other day a girl in my Spanish class asked me why guys never get panty lines.
I'm proud to say that this is the future of America.

Somewhere Only We Know

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting older and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're going to let me
I'm getting tired and I need someone to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?

Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting older and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're going to let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin
And if you have a minute, why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know

November =]

Thanksgiving, No-Shave-November, there are alot of things going on this month.

NaNoWriMo =]

So apparently November is National Write A Novel Month, who knew?
I found out just last week and decided to do it. The initial goal is to write 50,000 words, or 175 pages, before November 30th. Quantity, rather than quality, is the highest importance. The focus is just getting it done as a rough draft, and then December is the month of revising and editing. <---My story is here, if you want to check it out.

I'm writing under a pen name, and have no intention of trying for publication, this is just for fun. I started a bit late though, so I'm four or five days behind. I'm hoping to catch up soon.
I figure this is better than No-Shave-November :p


I Have A Cold :|

"Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken."

I love this movie =]
...and the book and the author and...

I really want this cold to go away! I hope it does soon, it's not that I don't enjoy its company or anything, but I would like to resume my social life sometime soon.
On the plus side, I'm starting to get abs from coughing so much :D

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday.

Happy Halloween =]

My pumpkin is a car salesman.

Orange Juice and Bananna Nut Muffins

Tomorrow is Thursday =]

Who wants to know the several factors that determine the biological effects of a particular source of radiation? :D

In other words, I don't want to do my chemisty so instead I'm procrasting
...with more chemisty... (This does not bode well for my future)

(The abridged version)

1. The energy of the radiation: radiation doses are measured in rads (short for radiation absorbed dose), the higher the energy content that more damage can be caused.

2. The penetrating ability of the radiation: The particles and rays produced in radioactive processes vary in their abilities to penetrate human tissue.

3. The ionizing ability of the radiation: Extraction of electrons from biomolecules to form ions is particularly detrimental to their functions. The ionizing ability of radiation varies dramatically.

4. The chemical properties of the radiation source: When a radioactive nucleotide is ingested into the body, its effectiveness in causing damage depends on its residence time.

Go, Get Your Ribbon Box

Strange faces, foreign places, they are all yours.

Take every little moment in.

Remember how you feel when air fills your lungs as you take a deep breathe.

Embrace the imperfections and anomalies of life.
Everything has beauty, even when broken.

This world, this life, it belongs to you, and only you.
And in decades or centuries from now it will belong to someone else.
But for now it's yours.

So don't look back and don't slow down, every second counts.

The World Through New Eyes

So today my cousin was showing me a Silly Band, which is one of those rubber bands that makes shapes and and creatures and all of that jazz.
To me it seemed like a plain green oval.
She asked me what I saw, and I told her just that; it was a plain green oval.

I was then instructed to pay close attention.
She held it upright and said, "Pickle"
and then turned it upside down and said, "Cucumber".

The sad part is?
I totally see it now as a pickle/cucumber rather than a plain green oval. I wonder if this is because it actually looks like a pickle/cucumber or just because that's what she told me it's supposed to be.

It's witchcraft I tell you.


Feel the Noize

Haha just for the record, Noise is spelt wrong in the title on purpose. It's a song by Quiet Riot.

Hmm so it's another one of those saturday nights...or more appropriately, sunday mornings where I can't sleep. That's right people, the desire to sleep has left the building (or body?).

I don't know why, I'm just really wired right now, but I know that if I watch TV or do some homework my drowsiness will hit me like a freight train and I'll finally understand the true extent of how tired I really am.

That's why I'm typing now. So I can avoid said scenario from happening.

I don't know about you but I'm in a bar-fighting mood.

You know those days when you just feel the need to walk into an old western saloon and challenge the first bow-legged, over weight, toothless man you see to a shoot out?

On the other hand, maybe not...

Well I think I'm going to go save some orphans from a ferocious gang of bears who beat their victims with sticks. I was going to try and redecorate my blog...but I probably won't have time, those bears are pretty notorious.

I hope you have a good time during those few awkward hours between night and morning.
Good bye for now,


Love the Way You Lie

Even though I'm not a fan of Pop Culture, I still know it like the back of my hand.
My relationship with Pop Culture applies to the saying 'keep your friends close and your enemies closer'.
Anyway I bring this up because the song 'Love the Way You Lie' has been stuck in my head for the past two days. I'm not going to lie, I actually don't mind Eminem.

Moving on...
This is my first post in almost three months. Weird, huh? Not that I was posting much to begin with :p
After a summer in four different states it's nice to be back in California. I feel bad for shifting to a generally serious subject on my first post since I've been back but it's been on my mind recently.

I just can't help but feel sympathetic for my great grandmother, I mean this woman practically raised me, while my parents were doing...whatever they were doing at the time, I spent the first few years of my life with her.
She isn't exactly a very tolerable woman, she's very independant and tends to meddle in the affairs of others but she's had such a horrible life, filled with abuse and hardships, and now she's elderly and although she may not admit it, she's become increasingly fragile over the years.
Her children are both dead, one blew himself up while trying to escape from prison, the other had a heart-attack at forty, and she only has one grandchild who will take care of her (i.e. my dad). Even then there are so many people in my family who talk horribly about her behind her back on a daily basis. It shouldn't matter about what she's done in the past or even how difficult she can be sometimes.

I call twice a week and try to visit at least every other weekend, but it's hard when no one else is putting effort into maintaining a relationship with her. It makes her happy when someone calls or vists.
She's just so lonely. That's not how it's supposed to be.

But then again, nothing's the way it's supposed to be anymore.

That's life.

I remember when I was younger I absolutely despised the phrase, "Life's unfair".
My mom used it against me on almost everything.
I have a new understanding of that phrase now than I did seven years ago.
Will I still interpret that phrase the same way seven years from now?

This is for Kumquat =]

...I told you he ate them all.

Baby, There's a Shark in the Water

Does anyone remember these?
They're the Shark Swimmer Fins or something like that...
I saw a commercial for thesm a few days ago and was amazed, I had no idea they still sold these.
Talk about a blast from the past.

Saturday, May 29, 2010

Haha so...I feel silly.
Anyway my venting's over...sorry it was so weird.
On a happier note today I will be going to a top secret, strictly on a need to know basis meeting with some of the other agents. I'd tell you more about it, but then I'd have to kill you...
Just kidding =] We don't do that anymore, erasing someone's memories is the hot new thing to do. You might be a little disoriented afterwards, but no worries, it wears off...or at least I think it does.

Haha anyway a big happy early birthday to Kumquat =] =]

All Of This

When I was younger I used to sit in my room and listen.
I always knew when it was going to get ugly because my mom would walk into my room and tell me to close my door.

I wonder if they knew that no slab of ivory-painted wood would keep their heated words from going through our paper thin walls and into my ears.

I wonder if they truly know how much I've heard.

Sometimes I'd cry into my pillow at night so that no one heard me, but deep down inside I secretly wished that someone, anyone, would walk into my room and comfort me. But no one ever came.

I used to never understand why my brother and sister always argued with our mom and step-dad but as I grow older it's all getting clearer. Our mom and step-dad get so angry over the littlest things...I think it's because they're unhappy.

Neither of them planned for a life like this. Both of them used to be just a kid, like me. They pictured themselves as happy, successful grown-ups living the American Dream. They deserve a happier ending than the one that they ended up with.

Even though as the three of us get older, everything mellows out. There's a lot less yelling and could even say that things are almost, almost close to being normal. But sometimes, every once in a while someone will blow up and a fight begins, except this time instead of simply listening, I find myself being a part of it. I just...don't like the pain that sorrow brings.

I'm sorry, this is weird. I don't really know why I'm writing this. I guess I want to talk. My family doesn't talk or dicuss anything rationally, they only yell and during arguments emotions run high. I don't want pity or sympathy or anything of the sort, I just don't want to fight or yell or anything anymore. I want to talk.

...I need to stop writing like this, I'm sorry again, for my weird little vent. This is what happens when I'm alone too long, my thoughts wander into the restricted corners of my mind.

This is a really long entry...sorry.

But one last thing.

To Wavery Smithers, I really hope you read this.

You're pure sunshine. I mean a day without you is a day in the dark.
You're bright and bubbly and have the ability to put a smile on anyone's face.
I could go on forever about how amazing you are, truly, I could but I'll save that for when I write in your make-shift yearbook. going away if hard for everyone; Kumquat, Rachelle, me, and I know it's definitely hard on you too. But I want you to know that I think you going to the new school next year is the right thing.

I would jump through hoops if that would make you stay and you mean so much to me, so it isn't that I want you to go but I want you to be happy.
You need to do what you want, it's your life and you need to do what makes you happy.

One of the best secret agents I know wrote something to me a few days ago. She told me that she would love me forever and always and then for infinity.
So, I'm going to make a promise to her now. That I'll love her forever and always and then for infinity also.

And I pinky promise that no matter where life takes us we will always be friends.
I hope you remember one thing:
The people around us may influence our lives, but they do not control them. We are in control of our own lives.
So don't let anyone tell you thast just because you're farther away that you can't keep your old friends. It's up to you to decide wether you want to keep us around or not.
(But I mean, come on, who wouldn't want to keep *us around? We're like the coolest kids ever :D)


P.S. I'm also saving the cornier and more sentimental things for your make-shift yearbook... :p

* When I say 'us' I mean our group :p

This corny joke keeps floating around in my mind. My oldest sister told me it last summer.
It goes like this:

A: Do you know why Williw Nelson really died?

B: No, why?

A: He was playing 'On The Road Again'

Told you, ut's corny :p
For all who don't know, Willie Nelson came up with the song 'On The Road Again'.

(This is the song for all of you who've never heard it)

They May Have Won The Battle...

For once I don't have to blame my faulty immune system for having to stay home.

The enemy snuck into my house yesterday night and switched the normal milk with milk that had expired...three days ago. Three whole days!

It was pretty clever if you ask me.

So, having been clueless I drank the spoiled milk... and spent the rest of the morning bent over waste basket. It's as fun as it sounds.

It's Time To Give Credit Where Credit Is Due

The other day I went swimming with my mom at my cousin's house . I was putting sunscreen on, you know to prevent ultra violent rays from seeping into my skin and causing irreverseble damage, when suddenly I noticed my belly button.

I kid you not, I'd forgotten all about it, I mean my belly button! The very spot where I'd been attached to my mother almost fifteen years ago.

I was ashamed, have I been taking my belly button for grantide? Have you?

It's such an easy part of the body to forget or ignore. I'm not saying we need a day devoted to belly buttons or anything, but I think some appreciation towards them would be nice.
Afterall, they did contribute to keeping you alive for about eight, give or take a few, months. So next time you're sitting at home, staring at your ceiling or counting sheep in your head, take a moment to remember your belly button and appreciate that you've even got one. It'll only take a few seconds and trust me, those sheep will still be there when you're through.

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Like, Ohmigod

Guess what? It's like totally the day before Rachelle's birthday! She's like turning fifteen, isn't that like amazing? No joke, she's like...the coolest person ever and like stuff.

Haha had an amusing, fun, somberero-filled pre-birthday day with Rachelle, whom (Whom or who?) I love with all my heart.
And we both glow :D

A Kumquat A Day Keeps The...Deep & Strangely Irrelevant Thoughts Away

Well, sometimes she provokes the little part of my brain that generates all of my deep and strangely irrelevant thoughts, in a good way, I mean.
Agent Kumquat brought up a very good point in a comment, it got me thinking about plants. There's supposed to be a balance. We need what plants give us (Oxygen) and plants need what we give them (Carbon Dioxide). According to that everything should be equal, we shouldn't have excess amounts of Carbon Dioxide, but still we do since the ratio of plants to animals isn't equal.

So...more plants less people?

What do you think?

When the Music's Over

I won't get the full Prom experience until my Junior year, but tonight I got to dip my feet in the shallow, beginner waters of MORP. The entire dance was like being lost in some sort of euphoric jungle, which is appropraite enough seeing as our mascot is 'The Wildcat'.

It was chaotic and crowded and amazing, a place where strange, scantily-clad creatures roamed. Really, there was no dress code whatsoever, and it got pretty disturbing at times, but all in all it's a good time.

Anyway there are four weeks of school left, it's a lovely yet sadening thought. Two whole months without seeing my most of my closest friends...thank goodness for snail mail.

Is it just me or does everything feel more mellow than before?

I don't know.

I've been thinking alot lately though. I mean people are starting to go against popular culture, the only reason being that it's, well, popular. As an example, the Twilight books. Sure Stephenie Myers has millions of adoring fans, but then there are the anti-Twilighters, who despise the book and it's author. I have no beef with those who've read the books and don't enjoy them, but it's the people who don't read the books and then very vocally express their hatred for them.

Or with food you've never tried before. If you haven't heard a certain song, or tasted a certain food, read a certain book, or met a certain person then how do you know if you like it or not? Some will bash celebrities that they've never before met when in actuallity that celebrity could be a very nice person.

I wonder as to why we do these things, not everyone does this, but some people do. I don't know. I guess for now it's best if we all just keep an open mind.

Goodbye for now,

Thoughts on Living

Have you ever thought that maybe all of those other species got it right and we're the ones who have it all wrong?

Life Lesson of the Day

In any type of war, wether it be between two people or two countries, there are no good or bad sides since both sides are right and wrong in their own ways and the only thing we have to show for this is the pain and confusion left by those who try and convince us otherwise.

(Like so many other things this made much more sense in my head.)

Times They Are A-Changing

Do I like Bob Dylan?
His voice is, well, according to a corny mid-nineties movie spoof it has the ability to destroy aliens. I don't know where I stand with him, I mean some people think he's one of the greatest musicians one will ever come by while others have said that he makes their ears bleed, it's harsh, I know.

I really like his song 'Times They Are A-Changing' and desputably mediocre voice or not, his songs do have very insightful, enlightening messages. I don't know, I think I do like him, I mean I'm not prepared to become an extreme, die-hard Dylan fan but when asked I won't deny that I listen to his songs. Anyway what do you think? Of Bob Dylan, I mean.

Okay, my mind's going a mile a minute right now so I'm sorry if I jump around alot. You know how people always announce that they have to 'go pee'? I have a theory as to why, a few theories actually. My favorite one is that half the fun of saying something like 'I have to pee' is that the other person didn't need to know it.

I don't know what it is but recently I've been feeling super happy. Unbeknownst to most people the end of '09 and the beginning of 2010 were really hard times for me. Things got bad, and I mean really bad, I had never experienced that level of bad before. And the worst part is I know that there are other people in the world who have it ten times worse, and although my family is a tangled and utterly imcomprehensible mess, I'm really glad that I have one.

Anyway lately I've been really happy, maybe its Spring's sunny weather or a new perspective on things, or most likely my wonderful, absolutely amazing friends. Hmm, I think it's the latter of the three, really they are amazing, I don't know what i did to deserve such great friends.
Really, I'm going to need reconstructive jaw surgery from smiling so much.

There's something weird all over my isn't water, because it's sticky but dry at the same time. This concerns me.

Oh! Okay, so I have to make an extra credit poster in Algebra on the Pythagorean Theorem. We need to make our own word problem and illustrations and everything, and mine is about a pirate! Are you up for the challenge? Can you solve the ultimate Pythagorean Theorem question?

Okay, so here it goes:

Zack encountered a math problem that he couldn't solve. The problem went like this:

Sid the pirate stood on a beach five miles away from his ship and three miles away from a chest of burried treasure. How far away from the burried treasure is Sid's ship? (Side B is 3 mi. and side C is 5 miles, find A)

Bonus Question:

How far would Sid have to travel to get to the the treasure and then back to his ship?

I know, this is probably the simplest Pythagorean Theorem problem known to man, the answer is four, which means the bonus question is seven. Haha, this makes Zack from the word problem look extremely simple, seeing as he couldn't solve the problem...although my brother Zack did it in his head :p

Anyway to my friends, who are pretty much the only people who read this, one again I love you all. I'm also in a very sentimental mood so expect very large hugs tomorrow...which is Thursday for those who read this later on in the week.

Well, I think my work's done here.
Feliz Cinco de Mayo,

You, Yes, You

I forgot to tell you! Yes, you. The other day in English we were watching Kung Fu Panda and my friends and I were wondering, how fat must you be to not see your toes?

Well then I was at the super market yesterday, buying milk since we ran out and I really wanted cereal, and I got in line when I realized the man infront of me was very, well, obese. He was also very stout and only a few inches taller than me, so while he was paying I went up on my tippy toes and feeling very much like a secret agent I looked over his shoulder and you know what? I couldn't see his toes! His belly was in the way.

Later I said I'd tripped and then apologized for getting so close to him.

Now, this message is to Kumquat:
I now know how fat you must be to not see your toes! I'll show you Monday =]

...and now my last lollipop is all sad.


Lights Not Lazers

How do they do it? I don't understand this amazing phenomenon. I got about four of the See's lollipops for Easter and this is my last one, it's vanilla, and probably my new favorite. Hmm, I'm going to end to addicted to these things and gain hundreds of pounds.
I look forward to the future.

Anyway, onto the real subject at hand. I just came back from my step-dad's, cousin's wedding. I only knew about a hand full of people there and whoever I did know I haven't seen since I was five. I had people I didn't even know coming up to me and saying, "Oh, you've gotten so tall!" Little do they know, I haven't actually gotten any taller but have developed the ability to wear very high heels, making me appear taller.

The ceramony was beautiful, there's something magical about weddings, even if you don' know the bride, groom, or half of their guests.

At said wedding I met Devin, the tall, blonde, and charming type. He happened to be the same age and grade as me so we danced and had ridiculously witty conversations with one another. I was being a bit flirty, seeing as one of my friends thinks I need to 'get back on the dating' train. But I knew nothing would come out of my short-lived friendship with Devin, seeing as he was either a byofriend of one of my extremely distant relatives or he was one of my exremely distant relatives. Either scenario wasn't desirable.

After talking for a while I found out that he was my cousin Tiffany's date, and that they'd gotten into this huge fight during the ceramony and weren't talking. So I dragged both of their gorgeous, blonde butts into the kitchen and talked some sense into them. So they're back together and I'm, well, me.

That's okay, maybe I'm not ready to climb back onto the dating train just yet or maybe I'm just not meant to be a passanger at all, I'll be the conductor instead.

Oh, so quick subject change that relates to the title. You know those mini colored disco balls that you plug into the wall and can win at most arcades for a couple hundred tickets? Well they had that during the wedding and my step-grandfather pointed at the colors on the ceiling and said, "Look, they've got lazers."

Then a tall, wrinkled woman whom I recognized as the band's drummer shook her head and corrected him, "They're lights, not lazers."
Same difference.

Make Way for the Revolution

A new golden age is coming, it will be a revolutionary period of time. The Renassiance and other ages of great discovery will cower in the shadow of this fabulous new era.
And it all begins with a lollipop. Mine, specifically. Not one that im going to invent but the one that I'm currently sucking on or licking or whatever word you want to use for the action of devouring a lollipop.

I know this sounds a bit far fetched but I'm being sincere. This lollipop is the future. I was never fond of See's lollipops, I just didn't think chocolate could possibly be good in a hard carmalized form but boy, was I wrong. I was hesitant to try such a bizarre lollipop but finally I did and it's practically a brownie on a stick, the taste is dead on. It's amazing, it's revolutionary, it's the future.

A new golden age is coming thanks to the creators of this little lollipop. So I say to you all, wether you believe me or not, you better start making way for the revolution.

I don't know wether to be amused or depressed. I think I'm a little of both right now. My family from Costa Rica are visiting California so we're having them over at my house today to celebrate my grandmother's birthday. Just moments ago my cousins and I went to the super market to pick up some ice. We also ended up having to get eggs, milk, drinks, and a few other things that my Mom had forgotten about.
My cousins got bored and started goofing around throughout the store so I went to pay for all of my groceries and ended up having a convesation with the cashier, he was a few years older than me and it was his first day on the job. After a few minutes of talking the line behind me started growing so he started ringing up my items. He was having trouble with the scanner and was taking longer than usual. All of a sudden the woman behind me, who was in her mid-thirties or so, sighed impatiently.
I turned around and gave her a small smile before turning back to the cashier who was trying to get the computer to stop angrily beeping at him. A moment later, the beeping stopped and the woman sighed again, when I turned to her she had a hand on her hip and was tapping her foot. I smiled apologetically, "I'm so sorry that i'm holding up the line, you must want to get home."
She rolled her eyes and then checked her watch before saying, "Yes, I do."
I looked over into her cart, she had a People magazine and two cartons of milk, which raised the question, why didn't she just go into the express lane?
I shrugged and then tried to help the new guy figure out how to work the computer, seeing as all of his older, more experienced co-workers were busy. That's when the lady turned to me and said, "You know what? I've got better things to do today than stand behind some brat and you," she pointed to the blushing cashier, "you need to hurry the hell up, I mean really? Stop flirting and push the damn button that gives her the reciet!"
The cahsier looked dumbfounded so I stepped in. In a very polite tone I told her, "Excuse me, I understand that you're annoyed and you must be tired of standing in line but you don't have to be rude. He's new on the job and will be finished soon."
That really set her off. She graberd her magazine and the milk from out of her cart and pushed past me to go into a different lane. Then she sharply turned around and nearly spat out her words, "Fuck you! My children are going to be smarter than you, more successful, and they are going to live longer! Both of you are going to amount to nothing, you'll be worthless scum for the rest of your life."
Security was called and I kid you not, she slapped the guard as he tried to help her outside.
Now that i think of it, I'm more amused after all.
Wow, what a day.

Scar Tissue

There's something about the Red Hot Chilli Peppers that makes you forget all of your troubles. Anyway sorry I haven't posted in such a very long time, the days have been flying by and I'm having trouble keeping up with them.

At the beginning of school everything was measured in months. There were a few months until finals, a few until Christams, four months until New Year's, ect. But now it seems like everything is measured in weeks. Four more weeks of Tack season, not even one week until STAR testing, five or six weeks until finals...soon we'll be counting down the days.

I can't believe summer is about two months away.

I have a feeling that this summer and our Sophomore year are both going to be very good =]

The penny tells all

I'm anemic, so says the penny. Apparently if you're anemic and you rub copper against you're skin then it'll leave a black streak while on normal people it leaves a white streak. Something about how the copper draws out the iron, I don't know. But low and behold a black streak appeared when a penny was rubbed on my face. I thought they stopped making pennies out of copper...oh well, anyway I'm kind of dissapointed.

I mean there are tons of anemic people out there in the world, it's become extremely common. If I have to have a disease it might as well be something extremely rare and unheard of. Hmm, I guess for now I'll have to live with my overly ordinary disease and see what the doctors say tomorrow.
Sweet dreams and don't let the bed bugs bite!


If you're wondering if I want you to

This song will not leave my head. River Cuomo's voice keeps repeating this one line that goes, "Girl, if you're wondering if I want you to, I want you to! I swear it's true, without you my heart is blue...."
I've gotten really into Weezer lately, oh, and Metric. Both on them are on complete ends of the music spectrum but still amazing. Hmm, well there isn't much to say...oh! But Bones starts again this Thursday and then a new Degrassi on Friday! This week looks promising. My school has two meets too, one on Thursday, one Saturday, it's going to be pretty exciting.
Sorry I'm not my usual rambling self, I'm just way too tired for comfort and soon I may find out why. The doctors think there's something wrong with me so I have to get my blood drawn, again. That or they enjoy repeatedly subjecting me to blood tests. I think they're vampires. I mean really, what do they do with all that blood once the tests have been ran?
The world may never know...

Okay I've officially gone through an entire box of tissues and also a little travel pack with pictures of Snoopy on it. I'm halway through a new box, delightful, huh? Oh the joys of being sick. My voice is getting better though. I woke up this morning the sound of my mother's laughter as small paws eagerly trampled over my face. "It's already five thirty, you over-slept," she tells me, so I scoot the dog aside and sit up and open my mouth to tell her thanks for waking me up but I can't utter a sound.

Well, actually, that's a lie. I manage this pathetic, hoarse whisper. Alarmed by my lack of voice and ability to breath through my nose she ordered me back to bed. I can actually talk now but it's much easier to whisper. Ugh, I'd rather be at school. It's such a beautiful day, being stuck inside watching old, black-and-white serial killer movies isn't what I had in mind for the start of my weekend. But oh well, that's life. We're having a garage sale tomorrow for my friend, Brittany. It's a long story but I think it'll be fun. Anyway I have to go and post flyers before my parents come home and see that i'm not curled up the covers.

Bye for now.

Mystery Meats

Today during lunch somehow we ended up discussing what pepperoni and salami were made of. So, naturally, having been raised mostly in the twenty-first century, I googled it. Finally, the answer! Waverly Smithers was right, since she said they were made of pork. Salami is made of pork, while Pastrami is made of beef, and Pepperoni is made of beef and pork. Fascinating, huh?
The we were talking about what was made from pigs, like ham, bacon, and well, pork. sausage is made of beef though, oh haha and according to google it's also made of pork. Smithers, you win =]

Snow Mission

I was going to write about my snow mission (which is really my game of Call of Duty from a few days ago) but I have to go soon, so I'll post it later.
Before I go here's a shout out to Kumquat!! She was the one thousandth viewer on Secret Agent Time, I love you Kumquat =] haha

Time to Pretend

MGMT's got some really great, revolutionary songs, like Time to Pretend, but they kind of lost it after their album Oracular Spectacular.

Anyway hi, sorry it's been so long since I've posted I've been way too busy. Hmmm I have some freakishl bug or something. I refuse to call it a cold, if I admit it's a cold then I'll have to admit I'm sick and that really can't happen when the first Track meet of the season starts in two weeks. So for now I have a freakish bug-thing.

My nose is all stuffed up and my throat's sore but that's really all...I don't have fever or headache or anything, I think that's good, I hope it'll go away soon.

It's really nice outside today. The sun is shinning, birds are singing, and the clouds are light and fluffy. No signs of rain whatsoever. I kind of wish it wouldn't be so pretty, if it were stormy and gloomy then I'd have an excuse for being holed up inside all day. Oh well. Oh so it's not just my freakish-bug that's causing me to shy away from the outside world, my parents went to Vegas for the weekend so I'm not allowed to go anywhere or hangout with anyone. I get to stay inside and be taunted by such beautiful weather...I'm suddenly looking forward to Monday.

Yesterday my brother and I were hanging out (inside) and he brought up a very good point. The difference between North California and South California is scary. Like Northern Californians say 'hella' in place of the words very or really. For example:

"That's hella funny" or "It was hella scary"

It drives most Southern Californians (for those who don't know I'm from SoCal) crazy. We also differenciate ourselves even further by classifying eachother as SoCal and NorCal. Can't we just all be one big California? I don't know. I have this bad feeling that we're going to end up like Dakota and split into two seperate states. Then we'd have fifty-one states...unless North and South Dakota decide to resolve their issues and become one state, though I doubt that'll happen.

Oh! So random new topic, you know how Tim Burton puts Johnny Depp in all of his movies because they're best friends? I've noticed something. He likes using another actor, well actress, regularly. Helena Bonham Carter, she and Burton are dating and have two kids together...I think. She's been in Fight Club, Wallace & Grommit, and Harry Potter. Then the other day I was watching Sweeney Todd and realized she plays Mrs. Lovett. A day after that I was watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and saw that she plays Charlie's mom. She's also going to play The Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland.

I thought that was kind of cool, I never noticed how many movies she was in before untill now. So, I guess that's all, I have a story to tell about a recent mission, but I'll put it on a different post.

Goodbye for now.

It's Complicated

Ah, who doesn't love the art of understanding the opposite sex? It seems to be everywhere lately-love, I mean. It could be due to the coming month of February. Did you know it was spelt with two R's? I still find that very, very strange.
Ew! I just ate a yellow M&M and it tasted like fish...not cool. Anyway I have a theory I think Winter is the season of liking, not the beginning but the end of it, it's the time where people start to develop crushes and what not and by the time spring comes it's blossumed into love.
Ohmygosh! Okay so I tried giving the yellow M&Ms another chance so I ate one more and I'm ninety nine point nine percent sure that the taste of greasy fish is now permanently stuck in my mouth. Ew, ew, ew. All the others taste normal, I think I'm going to stick to those.
Oh, so back on topic girls are always complaining about how guys don't make sense and are impossible to understand and guys always complain about how complicated and strange girls are. Stop trying to crack the code! Maybe that's truly whats driving both genders mad. Maybe we should stop trying to figure out one another and just enjoy people as they are. Less time analyzing and more time socializing and maybe then, just maybe wil we get a true understanding of one another.
But hey, just a thought. I have to go scrape the fish taste off my gross! Bye for now,

Death to Smoochie

Those bastards. Has anyone ever heard of traingle rubber-bands for braces? They're rubber bands that connect your top teeth to your bottom ones. Everytime I see some one with those I'm always curious about how it feels and how they're able to eat.

My Orthodontist put those on me today. I now know. Guess what? It's a pain. The amount of effort it takes me to eat a cookie now is very undesirable. I have to take them off and put new ones on everyday and I have to take them off before eating then put then on afterwards, lunch at school's going to be a hassle. When I got home I decided to experiment and see if I could eat something small, like a bite-sized Teddy Grahm. This does not work. I repeat-do not try at home.

I can't fully open my mouth all the way with the rubber bands on so I had to suck on it...that's what she said...haha sorry I've been watching The Office way too much lately. Anyway it's a pain but I'm always up for a new challenge. So there's a bright side after all.

Oh and then halfway through the appointment the assistent orthodontist was taking out my old wires inorder to put new ones in. When he started to put in the news ones something was wrong with my back bracket and the wire wouldn't go in all the way, so instead of stopping and checking to see what was wrong with it he continiously pushed the wire which caused it to slip and impail the inside of my cheek. It's as fun as it sounds, trust me.

So while my cheek was being stabbed as a distraction I began thinking of the do's and don'ts of rubber band colors. Like one time I'd gone with orange because for some reason I thought it would look cute. Orange is a definete don't. After a few days it fades and makes your teeth look yellow. Green's okay but I'd stay away from black, in my opinion it makes it look like you have a bunch of oreo cookie stuck in your teeth.

That's by itself I mean, black actually looks really good when paired with other colors like green or orange. I've never actually tried red but it looks good on others. Um personally I like blues and purples they match alot of things and the colors just stand out more. I tried pink once, that wasn't too bad either.

Thats pretty much all. I had alot more to say but fortunately for you I can't remember. It'll come to me sooner or later. Oh! Just remembered...haha.

My computer's being even weirder now...if that's even possible. When I turn it on a little message pops up saying that the USB drive that I've inserted isn't recognized, but the only thing inserted in my USB drive is my internet connector. So I clicked on update and it said my version was already up to date but it still wasn't recognized which meant I wasn't getting internet.

I disconnected then re-connected it but still nothing. I did that a few more times then my computer says that I need to replace the USB drive, which really is no bueno. Finally, I disconnected it then re-connected it one last time, fingers crossed and then I heard a little beeping noise and my internet was working again!

I'd take my lovely dinosaur into the computer doctor but they're expensive and they've fixed it for me a few times already...I guess I'll just figure this one out on my own and hope nothing explodes.
Wish me luck!

We All Live in a Yellow Submarine

My computer's starting to do this funky thing lately. I have a mini computer monitor in the bottom right corner on my actual screen, if the monitor has a little red X in it then that means my internet isn't working, if it's blue and has a pictrure of Earth in it then it is working.

Now what's happening is I'll turn on my computer and the little blue Earth is in the corner so I'll click to go online and it says my internet isn't working so I disconnect my router and re-connect since that usually works but then the entire screen turns blue and it says that Windows is shutting down to prevent viruses from attacking my computer and that I should either reset it or wait a few minutes before turning it on again.

Now it's getting worse. When I turn on my computer the first time it'll go straight to the blue notification-thing. Now the electronics are turning against me. Wondeful.
On a lighter note, I was going through my photo gallery out of boredum due to lack of internet
and I found some amazing pictures that I forgot I had! You know you're just dying to see them.

He is just so big now! My darling little brother, he turns eight this year-eight!! Haha he wanted to try my older brother's bowling ball which was a whopping eleven pounds...he found that one out the hard way.

My baby brother, ah, he's such a little pill but look at this kid-really? So adorable! This boy's going to break hearts, no doubt about it...he's a chip off the old block...haha.

Have you ever seen a one year old with this much character? He won't stop moving and talks like crazy, just looking at him gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside =]

I was going to post about a hundred more pictures of my darling siblings (there's more of them, by the way, two older sisters and an older brother) but my computer's spazzing out, as usual so a couple more will have to do.

My new boyfriend, he's hot, I know. It's kind of sad that the closest thing I have to a boyfriend is
a three hundred pound inanimate mass of frozen water.

Me on the left, my little brother in the middle and my oldest on the right. Oh how I miss Idaho. Oh, that's where these photos were taken by the way. It hasn't snowed in my part of California in ages, literally. It's good to be home though. Time to go...I don't exactly know where to but that's what makes it fun.




I had an epiphany about...five minutes ago. I was brushing my teeth when I realized that most blogs have purposes and that a blog in general kind of needs one. So I'm officially stating the purpose of mine...(drumroll)'s actually not that exciting. It gives you a look into the mind of a secret agent. Wow, I knew it wasn't that exciting but now that I've actually typed it out it sounds rather lame. Oh well.

I haven't been on any new missions lately so I think I'll just ramble for a bit.

Onto something hopefully more fascinating. Don't you hate it when you brush your teeth then have to eat?
I was getting ready to go to Burbank for my Mom's braidsmaid dress fitting so I'd brushed my teeth, had an epiphany, and all that jazz. I went through the kitchen to get to my Mom's room to get a blow dryer and on the way I grabd a cookie. Two seconds later I realized I'd just brushed my teeth and eating said cookie would mean that I'd need to brush them again. So it's now sitting in front of me tauntingly.

Oh! I saw the movie Julie & Julia yesterday, to my surprise it was pretty good. The ending was a little odd and the main character was a bit too obsessed with Julia Child but otherwise that it was cute.

Has anyone ever had Fruit Stripes? Best gum ever. The flavors are really good but it only lasts for about five minutes, the coolest part ever though is that the pictures on the wrappers are stick on tattoos! That blew my mind. Although it's an older brand that's been around for years it's still revolutionary.

Speaking of blowing minds, did you know the movie Oliver and Company is actually another version of Oliver Twist? The little orange cat's an orphan and he meets the cool, popular street dog, Dodger, and then there's big, mafia-like, cigar smoking bad guy, Mr. Sykes! It wasn't until the other day when I was watching it that I made the connection between the Disney film and the book by Dickens. In a way I'm dissapointed it took so long for me to figure that out but it's still so...enlightening.

Moving onto a new topic, everything I own keeps breaking. I kid you not, the entire front cover of my phone can come off, my ducky umbrella has a hole in it, the filter in my fish tank short-circuted although it's now been replaced, my shutters won't properly open and close so I have to pull them up completely, my alarm clock's going off at random hours-I'm pretty sure that's short-cicuted too, and last but not least, a latch on my window is broken so now I can't lock it or close it all the way.
My room's officially started a mutiny.

Well finally I have to go, off to Burbank it is.
Bye for now,

Saturday, January 23, 2010

I know I posted a few minutes ago but I've calmed down a bit more. I haven't been on my blog in a long time so I've been editing information and reading old posts which made me think back to the past year about when I posted them and events that have happened and wow, things have really changed. Some good and some, well not so good.

I don't know it's just odd, I mean maybe to others it may not seem like it but when I really take a step back and look at things I'm a different person than I was in the past years. I think the scariest part is how fast time's moving. Suddenly I'm in one moment and then it's gone. Just like that and I find myself in the next moment but then that one;s gone too. I guess that's the only way to really get by is taking things one moment at a time.

My brother brought something to my attention, we're all just waiting to grow up, but what happens when we finally do and the wait is over?
I don't know, I mean it's all just one big mystery. I guess that's what makes life interesting.
I'm sorry if none of this made any sense, All rational thoughts left my brain sometime after ten.

Well, good night-or more appropriately, good morning =]

Don't Panic

I'm finally posting again! Even though it's because I made a pinky promise, but hey, whatever works. Sorry again Smithers! Man, am I wired. Hmm, I really don't feel like sleeping. I've had like half a bag of crazy core Skittles and a bucketload of caffine so I'll be crashing eventually, just not any time soon.

I love the rain! It's such a peculiar phenomenon...gotta love big words =]
It's been pouring non-stop for the past week, it's great, the possibilities are endless in the rain, and in the sun, I guess.

Haha sorry, Ive been unusually happy lately, which is good. I think it's the rain. For a while even my happy memories made me sad but lately things are different.
School's going good, I mean numbers are making sense to me for once and there's been a lot of adventures, so I think things are really starting to look up.

The guy department isn't going very well, but it's cool, he's a good guy and sometimes I think attemtping a relationship would screw things up, it's happened before so I'm just a wee bit wary of my actions this time. I'd rather be friends than nothing at all, so for now I'm just going to chill and shut my mouth, haha lock it up and throw away the key =]
Sayings are always more fun to say when they're old.

Oh, I got caught in a monsoon the other day! It was crazy me and two of my friends were sharing one umbrella and bam! The rain starts pouring down and the wind blowing extremely hard and the umbrella's having a seizure, it was quite an interesting moment.
I have practice tomorrow at ten, well ten thirty if you want to be precise and then it's at eight thirty on Sunday.

Even if it's raining we'll still be running since we're 'distance kids'. Our coaches always treat the long distance and cross country runners differently, they think we can handle more, but they're right.

We have practice no matter what weather conditions but it's all good since it's always fun. I'll probably end up pulling an all-nighter then crashing either during or right after practice tomorrow.

Hmm, my Mom's sleeping in the room next to mine. It's my sister's room but she's out of state right now. She's talking in her sleep, my Mom, not my sister, the walls are ridiculously thin so i can pretty much hear everything that goes on throughout the entire house.
I got the Pokemon song as my ringtone, that's not very relevant, sorry but it sure is exciting.
Anyway I think I'm going to go stare at the walls or something, I'm getting kindof hungry again...I wonder where those Skittles went...
Anyway thanks for reading!

Oh, wait one more thing Mango Arizonas are amazing, I mean I knew that Sobes were pretty good but the other day I tried an Arizona and was like, 'wow!' haha sorry about my little outburst, the can's still on my yeah.
Well, good bye for now.
