My brother turned 14 today. Ah! It makes me feel old and very maternal towards him...is that strange?

I'm taking the smallest number of credits this quarter yet I feel like my classes are more demanding of me than ever. Then again, it could be everything else that's weighing me down. Thank God for friends...who are all GONE right now. Soooo, to pass the time on a lazy sunday, I've decided to do some reading. I'm working kind of slow and I'm not sure if it's because I'm dreading all the work required to get through the quarter or if I'm just intimidated by new material or if it's both...but it doesn't matter I suppose. Either way, I have to do it sometime, so why not now?

Except right now, I'd rather go to the beach and not do anything or just preoccupy myself with some pretty things.





...I really wish I had something more interesting to say about my day but hey, it's just the beginning right?

Slow Day [May. 5th, 2006|08:20 pm]

I don't know why but today seems to be a slow day. Everyone's preoccupied or not doing much but not really around. Well, most people anyway. On the bright side, I did eat a churro today. That was nice. I got Jon one too when I went to visit him at work...but otherwise, yeah, a slow day.

...Okay yeah, I wish I had more to say about today. Well, at this very moment, Wendy is driving up to visit so that's pretty awesome.








So how are you?

a sense of calm [Oct. 15th, 2005|04:43 pm]

I believe He's watching over me even more so everyday.
I usually stress over things that may seem like a life-and-death situation, worrying over petty things and forgetting what is most important.

But everything's back in perspective. Everything makes sense. This sense of clarity and love...I want to share that with you.

Wesley said, "Yeah, we're family, you know?" And I believe him.



I'm feeling it now. Finally.



Thank You.

KIDS ARE SO FUNNY [May. 25th, 2005|11:00 pm]
Amanda
[mood |chipperchipper]

I was talking to Meishan about my brother. Kids are the funniest creatures. EVER. seriously. they say everything we don't because they're so honest. and when i say honest, i don't mean brutally honest like many of us cynical adults do. theyre just so honest. Not only that, they say the cutest things. i say this because everytime i read my brother's essays, i find that many of the things he writes are so true. not only that, but his writing reflects what we say. i know, its bad writing if you write like how you talk, but it always amuses me. am i the only one who finds this really cute/funny?


redhotfire16: my brother sent me an essay for me to revise
redhotfire16: im not sure exactly who hes writing it for
redhotfire16: i think its a newspaper...or like...magazine..or omething
illusional stars: oo
illusional stars: i thought i was gonna be a love letter
illusional stars: haha
redhotfire16: he keeps saying "that's it folks. have a nice day folks."
redhotfire16: HAHA
redhotfire16: i think its cute
illusional stars: awww
redhotfire16: and he created this interview
redhotfire16: with queen elizabeth
illusional stars: o how cute
redhotfire16: he kept making her say "darling, blahblabha..have some tea?:
redhotfire16: HAHAHA
illusional stars: HAHA
illusional stars: very very accurate
redhotfire16: thats SOOO stereotypical. i remember telling him to put stuff liek that to make it more authentic too
redhotfire16: LOl id idnt know he'd remember. thsi was like..weeks ago
illusional stars: that IS authentic!
...
illusional stars: i make verbs outta nouns too [dude. meishan's really ms smartypants. the last thing i was thinking about was verbs and nouns. i was just telling her about how funny it is that my brother can right "dingdong" instead of "rang the doorbell"...cmon. admit it. it is funny.]
...
dude. i can't type w/o making a billion typos. oh well. as long as you can read it, right?

i think ...decades from now, i'm going to talk like a typical mom, saying things like, "my son said the FUNNIEST thing the other day. Oh my goodness, he's just a darling isn't he? he's just so CUTE!" I can totally see it. Now i feel OLD. oh well, plenty of time for that, yeah?

In case you were wondering...

YES! I've been REALLY BUSY LATELY! Let me break down my schedule as of sunday to this
weekend:

Few days ago: Sunday, i missed the review session for the midterm. i was super stressed about that. My moods were off the charts, all over the place. it was overwhelming. I tried to make myself cry so i'd feel like i'm not keeping everything bottled up. didn't work. couldn't focus on anything. seriously. not even things or people i enjoy being around, let alone STUDY. study, my ass. i can't study! so...i hope that doesn't reflect on my midterm. Yesterday, i don't remember what happened yesterday. Same thing, i guess. moods all over the place. wanted to be alone and got just that. ended the night with a heated argument and semi-makeup right before collapsing on the bed. Yeah. can't keep this up. it's tiring. my mood swings are tiring. it's kinda overwhelming after awhile.

Today: Study...cramcramcram, get distracted, half-assed reading for midterm today at 4. I didn't get around to studying and i'm paying big bucks for it, with beauty sleep, wasted time, guilt, and lots of gray/white hairs. I'm stressing big time here! So I took the midterm, second-guessed myself a million or so times, and was again, one of the last people to turn it in. ugh! let's hope I do as well as I did last time. Ate dinner quickly so I can get started on my essay which is due tomorrow. It's only a rough draft but I have to get cracking. Then Jon reminds me that we have to do a reader response, in which I respond saying, "OH WHAT?!" I hate reader responses cuz well, you have to read. a lot. but i selectively flipped through whatever it is we had to read and wrote a decent amount so i think i'll be fine. It didn't take that long, thank goodness. so now i'm working on the rough draft. that'll take up all of tonight and maybe some of tomorrow morning before section.

Tomorrow: Class at 9:30-10:40. Come back, work on draft, get a quick lunch, work on draft, head to section and turn in draft and reader response at 3:30-4:40. get a quick dinner (yes i know, its way too early to eat. my eating habits are all bad now cuz of the messed up/random times when i eat) then i have rehearsal at 5 so i pretty much have to eat fast if i'm not going to be late and i can't be b/c i perform the beginning half of the play. go figure. that'll run until the start of class at 7:00-8:45pm. Then i'll get back, shower, maybe work on the next paper (i have 4 due next wednesday), then pass out on my bed.

Thursday: morning class at 10-11:10. then meet up with elisa at 11:30 for accountability and just talking in general until 4, when we have class. 4-5:45, class. then dinner. then head back to room, work on paper, shower, bed.

Friday: Morning class at 9:30-10:40. eat lunch. work all afternoon on other papers. then head to sj with fellowship people for annual senior banquet. Hopefully, i can bring along my laptop and backpack cuz this is my ride home. halfway anyway. Then i'm fremont-bound by night. maybe like...10ish or however late the dinner runs. Yep. That's my week for you.

Weekend: Eating, tving, movie-ing, sleeping, family time-ing, see people??? ...oh right. and essaying. =(...and maybe some studying. maybe. we'll see how loaded i am.

I got back today from the long weekend. Not much happened. But. some good/random stuff did.

Sai gave me spam. that means now i have 1987598262978572938472+ 1=1987598262978572938473 spam cans to my collection. jk? okay i only have 3. but thats a lotta spam! at least now i'll have more stuff to eat with rice when i cook some.

i'm wearing my big mickeymouse tshirt nightgown. somehow, that's considered scandalous. yeah. right. it goes just above my knees and i have shorts under even tho you cant tell cuz the tshirt is that long. jing told me to pull it up so people know i have something under it. of course, you don't really need to wear anything under. i mean, some girls show more skin than i do but i show ANYTHING (like..if im wearing shorts or a tank top), it's like super scandalous! lol. i don't get the double-standard.

anyway. tommys gonna be an RA!! how awesome! he gets his own room. i'm so jealous!


hm. yeah. back to my essay. i wish i had something more interesting to say. you know, like something FUNNY!!! oh wait!

monica and i talked about raining latex. that was odd but funny. it got gross when it went from raining latex to raining USED latex. that's...yeah. hahaha. >.< EWW MONICA THATS GROSS WHYD YOU BRING IT UP HAHAHA!!

i wanna do something fun. FUN!!!! too bad we never got around to going clubbing/pooling/anything on sunday night. but it was good seeing rita again! she wore pink! how cute! MONICA! UPLOAD PICTURES ALREADY! =) yeahhhh. met some ahs people and ahs alumni and saw nathan, wendy, monica, and rita (of course). omg. there were so many people going to tapex. it's weird. maybe i just haven't been to one in a long while. what's even more strange is...i didn't get anything to drink. and here i am complaining about not having anything good to eat/drink around here. oh well.

LOOK SAI. I'VE FINALLY UPDATED LJ! NOW COMMENT!!!

=( back to work. sort-of.
