[19 May 2005|10:43pm]
I know this might sound really geeky, but I've been craving for books since last semester. And now that it's finally officially summer break for me and I really have no obligations anywhere else, I've been revisiting bookstores and splurging on novels that I've been missing out on for the past year or so. Today, I was sitting in Barnes & Noble reading when La Vie En Rose came on and it felt really perfect. I wish life was always so relaxng.

Anyway, so I got Kurt Vonnegut's Mother Night yesterday and am on my last few pages now...I think I'm liking him enough to want to get most of his books. I came back today to get Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle and A Confederacy of Dunces but walked out with the latter and an impulse buy by Chuck Palahniuk. This is my first non-fiction buy and I think it's going to be really interesting since this guy's life is crazy. No wonder he has all of those warped ideas (i.e Fight Club) in his head.

But away from the geekiness and all, I think I encountered my first transgendered/transsexual person today. She was actually really pretty, prettier than most transgendered people I see on TV and definately prettier than a lot of real women. Her voice was ambiguous, her chest wasn fairly flat but hey, I know many people with mosquito bites so it doesn't count. What really gave her away though were the hands. Hands of a guy, something you really can't fix I guess. And the feet, I think it's alway the hands and feet that really gives a gender away. I don't know, I guess I just have this sympathy for people like that, I feel bad for what they go through just to feel comfortable in their skin...all the pain and self-mutilation though I guess they wouldn't consider it that. I mean, in that perspective, I'm really lucky to have my vagina given to me naturally. Today reminded me of Soldier's Girl...I wonder if she tells guys she's interested in (vice versa) that she was born a boy. I wonder how hard that must be, but it'd be sick if she isn't up front with men she meets. I don't know, this could ALL be one big assumption, but I'm pretty sure of it.

Okay, if commercials are shown in between certain shows on certain networks to attract the potential viewers, than why is every other commercial on Animal Planet for senior citizens?! Young people watch Animal Planet too damnit! Now, I'm just being random. I've just had a very long night...

Kind people are so much better... [18 Apr 2005|12:49pm]
I know I haven't had a happy update in a really long time, and this hardly warrants a real update but, I was pleasantly surprised with an act of kindness today by two people I don't even know or have ever seen before and I must share.

So parking is a bitch at Mason, and especially in Lot A. I had planned on circling the whole lot for a good 20 minutes or so before I found a really shitty space at the end of the lot but as I was driving along behind a whole line of other cars, I noticed this guy and girl standing in an empty lot at the closest spot possible flagging me down to stop. At first I thought they were talking to a friend behind me saving that spot for them but what do you know, the guy was like, "Park here! We've been holding this spot for you, have a nice day!" And they both turned and left.

I feel pretty stupid cause all I could say was some meek "Thank you" (I was really confused). I should have told them they were awesome or something. It just surprises me that people can be so nice. Why me? They were Asian, so it could have been that, or maybe it was my really good-lookin' g-ma sunglasses. Must be karma or something--have I been doing good deeds lately? Mayyybe.

My day's been made :]

For our movie club nights... [19 Dec 2004|11:00am]
I am really digging the movie: Love Me If You Dare (Jeux D'enfants)

I just wished Audrey Tautou would have been the girl lead because this movie is so Amelie-esque. The guy lead reminds me if a young Patrick Dempsey. But really, this movie is fucking awesome for those who loved Amelie. Even for those who are just looking for another off kilter romance to watch. I think I might just go out and buy this dvd.

and two more on my list of movie-night-in's...Collapse )

I didn't know I was so addicted to looking at Tiffani Thiessen until I looked in one of my picture folders and there were a bunch of her photos saved up in there. What can I say; she's beautiful and I love looking at her. I wouln't mind lookin' like thatCollapse )

i fucking hate idiot drivers! DLKJR#(@*&$# [03 Oct 2004|04:22pm]
So I was driving just fine when out of nowhere a fucking car starts honking me because the car in front of them in their lane decides to turn and I happen to take up the other lane...wtf! Then he or the she-man decides to flick me off and then HIGHBEAM me in the DAYTIME a couple more times because I was stuck behind a slow ass car...do they not have EYES to see that there are other cars in front and it's a one lane road!!??!?

Too bad my grandma was in the car with me or I would've given that cunt a taste of their own shit.

So, I figured the only way to piss them off without screaming and gesturing obscenities like a low-life is to drive very slowly and not signal at all. HAHA that mothereffer was pissed off like no other. When I slowed down to turn without a signal, they honked me again but what do I care, I've sucessfully pissed that piece of shit for a good 5 minutes or so. Too bad I was at my place or I would have proabably driven on just to give him hell.

On Monday we had to submit another fictional story to CW, my group's stories were read by the entire class and I just read the nicest email any stranger has ever sent me! This is all she wrote:

I just wanted to tell you I loved your story. Your writing is absolutely beautiful! Ok, that's all. I guess it wasn't a very important message:0) -Shelly H.

It's making my day...how come people are so nice? I really need to learn names in my class, I have NO idea who this is but I will find out...

because i have so much time on my hands.... [16 Sep 2004|07:08pm]
I am falling very behind in school, once again. I have all this motive but no motivation...I'll be the cause of my own disaster. If I end up staying, I'll go crazy; but what can I do about that.

I find myself wasting a shitload of money on my drawing class lately. I took my 5469875th trip to Plaz-A again today. The people there intimidate me, I feel so ridiculous--not knowing what anything is, what's its use, and they're so knowledgable. I bet they're all artists there. This guy had to help me out big time, he was very knowledgable, I like helpful people who don't make you feel like shit. He smelled good. I don't think it was cologne, just something really good, well, maybe it was--but probably not the regular "cologn-ish" smell though. Does anyone else do that? Smell people?

I find that whenever I get into close proximity of people, I usually feed off of their smell. Does that make me wierd? I mean, I certainly don't mean it in a strange way. But like, if they're close to you and they have a distinct smell, you're gonna be able to notice it. Like the girl who did my hair in ColorWorks...I really liked her smell. I wonder what she uses. It was a scent maybe with a hint of vanilla mixed with cigarettes. But the whole time she was cutting my hair all I could take in was the smell. And even hours after I left the store, waves of it would come back to me...and I like that. And the smell of my Wella hair products, it reminds me of the Vidal salon, and I really like that smell. Whenever I use it, I think about the salon.

I wonder if I smell. I mean I'm sure I do, but is it that distinct? I usually just use pearberry lotion and bcbg metro perfume. I wonder what that smells like, because since I wear it, I'm used to it, and I wouldn't know. And it's wierd, because I NEVER really smell my friends. Like, I've never noticed their scents before. Maybe because the majority of my friends don't use anything.


I'm volunteering at the Fall for the Book event at Mason this weekend. He's gonna fit me in as a greeter? Or so he says. He hasn't emailed me with all of the info yet--but none of the activities that day really interest me much. I just wanna go to that Joyce Carol Oates event, I like her--but that's next Thursday. WEll, if anyone is free on Saturday, definately come out. Who knows, maybe it could be pleasant.

How to NOT Be an Internet Asshat...according to Expulsion [15 Sep 2004|01:59pm]
"You might find yourself tempted to create an elaborate "buddy profile" that your friends, enemies, and random stalkers will be able to view in order to get a better clue of what you're like. Many people simply put whatever they can think of in there, with a pretty color or unique font to jazz it up. Don't be like them. Everything you can put in your buddy profile could send your friends a message you never intended. Let's take a look at a few potential options and find out what they say about the person behind the profile.

· Putting your dorm room or phone number in your profile makes you look like a loser. Nothing says, "I'm desperate and lonely" like a profile screaming, "I LIVE OVER HERE! CALL ME!!!"

· Your funny conversations with your friends are not funny to anyone else but you. Especially if they are filled with things like "lol" and "stfu"

·Quoting song lyrics is boring and unimaginative. Quoting emo song lyrics makes you a fucking pussy...

· Why would you put a tribute to a dead person in your AIM profile? Do you think dead people have laptops in heaven and just fritter away their time by checking everyone's away messages?

·No one cares what you wrote in your LiveJournal. Your life is boring.

·Greek letters, because it shows you have to pay to have friends. Of course, depending on what fraternity or sorority it is, maybe they were the only friends you could get.

·Love notes to your significant other can mean either one of two things. You're either psychotically possesive and will have a terrible breakup with whoever that heart is for, or you're whipped. The people who have love notes in their profiles are probably the sort who always make out in the stairwell at high school, just to prove to the cool kids that they have somebody

·There's nothing like a depressing quote to make you seem fun and hip. Hey, let's all have a wrist-slashing party! You go first. Don't forget the little heartbreak symbol, </3. Take some Paxil you fucking simp." HAHAHAHAHAAH Oh man, I'm a loser. I've done at least half of those things at one time or other :\

i <3 vincent gallo...but if i were a celebrity i'd hate him and be intimidated out of my ass! [14 Sep 2004|08:28pm]
I never knew of him but saw him yesterday on Howard Stern. The show was hilarious, mostly because VG went off on a bunch of celebrities he hated and wished cancer on (so wrong, but so funny if you were actually watching it). I can't find the transcript anywhere but he was hilarious...it was like, one of the greatest interviews I've heard...

Anyway, while looking for it I found an old interview that VG conducted with himself...I found some parts amusing: click for interview excerptsCollapse )

maya angelou on her 70th... [09 Sep 2004|11:35am]
"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how
bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.
I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as making a 'life.' I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.
I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.
I've learned that i still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."


I ran by this quote by Maya Angelou from someone's lj post. It really touched me. I guess it'll only take time for me to learn all of these. I hope you guys appreciate it as much as I did.

I'm not comfortable anywhere but home... [08 Sep 2004|02:13pm]
It’s been awhile since I’ve updated, and a long long time since I’ve updated publicly. My life is boring I guess.

Interestingly enough today, my professor in creative writing told us she and a friend of hers are working on a non-fiction book about strippers. They have everything in the works and are really dead serious about the book. When we asked her, “why strippers?” she told us that she used to be an exotic dancer herself. That really blew my mind because she certainly didn’t look like a stripper and she is such a perky, energetic, clean good-girl type of person, I never would have thought…

I guess I was unconsciously stereotyping strippers all along, although I don’t intend to anymore. I’m sure she has great stories to tell, and I remember watching a documentary on IFC once and strippers really do have a lot to say. They all want their stories to be told. Anyway, I have gained a new-found respect for my creative writing professor because she really had to work hard to get her education and on top of that, stay so focused on what she ultimately wants to do. She’s a writer, not a stripper. This makes the class that more interesting.

And to most of my friends who are oddly upset/sad/depressed/frustrated at the same time these days: Feel better.

My grandma just came up to tell me not to go anywhere for the rest of the day. It's raining hard. My aunt just got into a car accident...she's in the hospital. I hope she's okay.

Two updates in one day. Marvelous.

Who was it that said, "The more things change, the more they stay the same" ?

I need to get my hands on some Adderall.

GOD, I love the Felicity series.

I didn't know that season 3 was out. But I can't wait for season 4 because that is my favorite season, merely for the 4 December episodes...

Work depresses me, I wish I were a morning person.
8-hour days suck; remind me never to work an 8 hour day job when I "grow up".
It's either 4 or 12 hours for meeee!

I found some of the perfect kittens to get my best friend for her belated birthday present. They don't even look like kittens, they look like cartoons! AHH so cute...I'll admit, I'd rather be puppy shopping but I just love pet-animals in general!

stole the link from kim. here's my "supposed" type of man:

"Some may call one of your types "Pretty Boys," but all you know is that they're gorgeous. The combination of classic good looks with small noses, beautiful eyes, and full lips is hard to resist. These guys tend to be clean shaven, have clear skin, and get good hair cuts. They're taking good care of themselves so they can be "pretty" just for you! [Well, you and the 1 in 3 women (33%) that are also after them!]

Another of the "looks" that you consistently noticed has been described as "Ruggedly Handsome." These men usually have strong, angular faces and "chiseled" features. Forget small button noses! You like men with strong, manly noses, balanced with an equally prominent chin. A tan and weathered look further adds to their overall impression of masculinity. Only 1 in 10 women (9%) are uniquely drawn to this type of man over a more traditional mainstream type."

I guess this is mostly true generally. But, I have liked guys from different ends of the looks spectrum sooo I'm not sure if it does all guys out there justice.

This day turned from great to awful pretty quickly.

-Got TO Bang pretty well; only got lost a little but we had extra time, so we ended up being early anyway
-Hair appt. went great (except virginia didn't get to color her hair due to booking misunderstandings)
-So, we've established that i look like Hilary Duff (w/ dark hair that is)/apparently everyone there saw the resemblence except me
-It fucking cost 20$ extra to get my hair blow dried! wtf was that!?! and i only tipped the guy 2$ and felt really bad because i had miscalculated the tip--he also washed and rinsed my hair (i guess i am now his frenemy hah.)
-Got TOTALLY lost trying to get back home (we went from d.c to the ghetto, to UMD, and then to 6 flags and didn't know it! at one point, we were going to ask this man what state we were in!)
-Almost got run over by some crazy truck
-One of the greatest 5 questions of the century: How did Angela and Virginia get lost and end up there?!?!?!

Damn the rallyists, this was partially their fault.

I guess, all in all, it wasn't THAT bad but it tired me out and killed my gas tank by like half. For two girls who are 200% direction impaired, we did have the fun moments...eh.

How awesome was it that the boys from Heatherette were MADE coaches last night?! I love them...I wish I could be MADE. Just not willing to go through the humiliation that comes along with the process.

AWWW I just want a Ross<3 I swear, I am going to ball my eyes out when that show ends.

P.S I just also watched Ghost World. Good movie, in some way, it kind of just fascinates me.

updating on the random [21 Apr 2004|02:58pm]
So after about 2 weeks of owning the nifty Nokia 3200, I opted out; mainly because I'm just a flip phone kinda gal? I don't know, but that doesn't matter...now I'm using the NEC 525 instead. Although I will really miss the 3200's loudspeaker and handy flashlight, I'm sure the NEC 525 will make up for it with its other options. One downer though is that it's kinda confusing to use...but I'm sure I'll figure it out with time---after all, it did get voted best flip phone for march 2004.

This came up last week, but I would not be friends with most of my friends today if it weren't for meeting N and K in 8th grade French classe. How different would it be if I had never taken French--and Spanish instead. I couldn't even imagine.

Didn't go to Flipside because nobody (including me) felt up for it on Saturday. We went to Cosi's/Chipotle/Reston Towne Ceter instead. It was really fun; but now, I'm kinda kicking myself for missing out on Wakefield/Sugarcult/FallOutBoy/Maxeen... (doh!) >:[

I made my first stencil tee...it isn't perfect but I like it. Now all I need to do is get my lazy ass to surgurize it into a tank. What is a good sketch if you can't literally sew it together. I need to take sewing lessons, and I will ASAP this summer. Excited, I am.

And oh yes, 10 more days until I leave for NY. Glad to be going...but I am royally fucked with all of the work I'm behind on, plus, finals are going to blow this semester. I wish I could just erase the last 4 months of my life.

The end.
