Feeling random.

{1} I just had to share..I was walking to my english class, which is on the second level of its building so it has a balcony, right, and the balcony overlooks a high traffic walkway that goes into the bookstore. I always see this really quiet, shy Vietnamese guy standing there by the balcony looking over the over the edge. I always figured he looks at people but he stands there and spits on them! ((HAHAHA)) I thought that was hilarious. Watch out for the quiet ones.

{2} It's 4:01 pm and the children are already out trick or treating. Is it me or did trick or treating start after dark when we were growing up?

{3} I saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for the third time yesterday & I enjoyed it like it was the first time. That's when you know that it would probably be a good idea to buy the DVD.

{4} Who here has heard of Matisyahu? Dude, this guy is INSANE. He's a orthodox jew (huge beard, sideburn curls and always wears a black suit) who raps in a reggae style. He's verrrrry good. I recommend listening to his music - you'd be surprised if you saw him though.
Here's a song or two to look up >> "King Without a Crown" and "Salvation"


Ok that's all the random shit I can think of right now.. I'll come back if I think of more.

Mix-mapping

"Child don't worry it's ok,
the sun is out for another day..
and I say it'll be alright." - Finally Woken


I dunno, this sounds really interesting to me for some reason. The concept is to take a road trip with a mix CD and a visual guide/map of places that correspond to those songs. So when you get to so and so place you have to listen to so and so song. I got this from the movie Elizabethtown which opens next weekend. I am SO excited for this movie, I've been waiting forever to see it! Well, I am challenged when it comes to explaining movies so here's thanks to Yahoo:

"After causing the Oregon shoe company he works for to lose hundreds of millions of dollars, Drew Baylor (Bloom) is fired for his mistake, and promptly also dumped by his girlfriend, Ellen (Biel). On the verge of suicide, Drew is oddly given a new purpose in life when he is brought back to his family's small Kentucky hometown of Elizabethtown following the death of his father, Mitch, as it falls to him to make sure that his dying wishes are fulfilled. On the way home, Drew meets a flight attendant, Claire Colburn (Dunst), with whom he falls in love, in a romance that helps his life get back on track."

So Claire gives Drew a scrapbook/map with places he should see in his late father's hometown and a CD to go along with it. It seems like an awesome idea..especially the part about the music because I think that if you found the right music, it would make traveling ANYWHERE more interesting..even if the boonies of the WA islands or something lol bottom line, it would be fun and the mix CD would enhance the experience and it would make you pay attention to where you're going. Just think of your favorite place and what the perfect song is to fit that place. For me, La Jolla Cove but I can't think of a song at the moment...grrr.

Well that's all..I just wanted to share because I thought it would spark some ideas ;)

PEACE.

Funny story

Well, the new neighborhood is much different than the old one. Neighbors actually TALK to eachother, and once in a while, there are unexpected visits from neighbors who want to say hi or who have made some food they want to share. It's different for us because we never got to know our neighbors in Edmonds, they were kind of stuck up and didn't talk to anyone. Don't worry, this is going somewhere.

Yesterday, I was watching tv downstairs when someone knocked on the door. I was still wearing pajama pants so I ran upstairs and changed really quickly and came down. Some of the kids had come to invite me to their party lol I thought it was really cute, and I felt bad not going, so I thought I'd see what they were doing and leave. I went behind the houses and saw a little girl sitting at a kiddie picnic table in a little nook behind some trees, drawing. She saw me and became excited because no one had come yet. She let me in through a rope thing she had hung across the trees and went off to look for her friends lol When she came back she offered some plums they had picked earlier. Soon after that, a rush of kids came and chaos ensued. I was completely surrounded - some kids were hanging from a tree above my head (one of which climbed onto the chair I was sitting in to get onto the tree lol), eating plums, singing "Who Let the Dogs Out", fighting...aye yi yi. I kind of just stood there and looked at them, I didn't know what to do. Occasionally I was offered a plum or they asked questions, but that was really it. I figured they would get bored with me anyway because I'm about ten years older than them! But no. This is the best part – they asked me to play charades with them, but they only really wanted ME to act out things so that they could guess. They sat stadium style in front of me on the grass and one girl brought her play microphone and "introduced" me to the "stage" lol later she came up to me and was like "do you know Jackie Chan? can you act like him?" I was like, "um...ok?" LMAO so, I did some karate moves and a little boy actually guessed it, and they wanted me to do more but I was like "maybe someone else wants to try?" I really didn't want to play charades lol I sat down because I still felt bad leaving, and this really adorable little girl started talking to me. She was SO cute! They wanted me to play on the playground with them, so I went along lol but I managed to sneak away when this weird lady came up to one of the kids when they were on the playground and yelled at her because she didn't invite her son to the party and said "how dare you call my son white trash! blah blah!". The poor kid ran home crying! What kind of grown ass woman yells at a little kid? lol it was so immature, she should know that kids don't know better.


So that was my strange day lol.

I have one word for you:

S O U N D C H E C K !!

It hasn't sunk in yet..the fact that I am going to another one of their concerts after 4 years is surreal and unbelievable in itself, but the honor of going to their soundcheck??!! There is not much I can say to describe it because it's bigger than I am and it feels too good to be true. That's why when Chandra called me, I didn't even know what to say. I hope she doesn't think I wasn't excited, because {I MOST DEFINITELY AM EXCITED} ! I don't think it will actually occur to me until we're driving to the arena and I'm shaking and feeling sick to my stomach.


How did I get so lucky? I think Chandra is my lucky charm.


By the way, I almost forgot how great this song is.

Fabulous Fourth. mmhmm.

So I came from Chandra's cabin on the morning of the fourth, and I was kind of glad to be home. I hadn't got any sleep in days and wasn't feeling my best and I needed some time to rejuvenate and to shower. I got online and saw that Cecile was on, and a few minutes later she asked me if I wanted to go to Gasworks Park with her, Mike and Rita to watch the fireworks show. It was a definite yes for me, because I knew I'd have fun and I'd never been to Gasworks on the fourth, or at all for that matter. Rita had the hardest time finding my house and I couldn't giver her directions because our cell phones weren't wanting to call eachother for some unknown reason, so Cecile moderated for us! lol eventually the phones worked, and I got her here. She seemed distressed because she'd been working all day, but I tried to tell her she wouldn't regret coming. We eventually got to Cecile's house, where we all hopped into her car to head downtown. Rita and I were having a good time in the back jamming to the music, reminiscing about California and trying to sneak pictures of Cecile. It was really hard to find parking, we tried several residential streets but ended up in some parking lot hosted by "My Brother's Pizza". Cecile and I asked "where is my brother's pizza?" because it was nowhere in sight and people looked at us like we were nuts lol We had (nasty) food at Magic Dragon and walked down like, 10 blocks towards the path that goes into Gasworks. There were people sitting on stoops, lounging on chairs in their driveways or front lawns. A favorite thing to do seemed to be throwing fireworks into the street in front of cars. There was this one that stunk REALLY BAD and it made colored smoke. People walking on the other side of the street were confused and cars were maneuvering around the smoke. I wouldn't want to drive down there lol So we headed down the pathway with a big crowd through the park, where we were supposed to be searched, but the man searching bags wasn't even going to bother, he just motioned for us to go with a little "grrrr." lol The crowd in that place was CRAZY! The entire hill was covered in people. It almost looked like there wasn't a hill there, just a gigantic pile of people. You had to get really close to the hill to see that there were small patches of grass left to sit on. We saw alot of people from Shorewood there, and found a spot next to Cecile's cousin Khrystine, Jackie Q and Nicole Bugai. Rita and I were still trying to get a picture of Cecile but she wouldn't let us or she'd take the phone or camera and delete the picture we did take. I finally got one of her and Mike posing lol it was funny. Rita got some really CUTE ones later during fireworks :D It was really fun, being out there with friends and even people you don't know, just kind of hanging out and watching the fireworks. They were the best fireworks I'd seen in years, actually, they were awesome! At the end of the fireworks, there was a MASS of people all going in the same direction, trying to get on a dinky little pathway. You can imagine how that is on a hill. We got out and as we were going on the path, weird things started to happen. First, some Russian guy pointed out Rita's name on her sweatshirt and she could understand what they were saying so she turned back and spoke to them. Then this guy came up next to me and asked us if we were going to any parties later. I said no and walked ahead lol I'm apparently not very good at these things, guys don't come up and talk to me randomly like that, so you can imagine it caught me off guard. The crowd went into the street and cars honked, so people would clear one lane and go to the next until another car came. There were more crazy drunk people than you could imagine! On the porches, front lawns, in the streets, on the sidewalks, everywhere! It was pretty amusing. We walked by this one house where some college guys were sitting on the sidewalk in lounge chairs, and one of them said to me, "I only sing for high fives" I smiled and walked away! I don't know why, I think I have a disease. I just don't have any faith in guys, at all. I always feel like I'm being tricked when a guy talks to me. Rita was like "are you crazy? he was cute!" Cecile said I should go back, and I kinda wanted to lol I figured the only reason they were talking to me was because they were intoxicated in one way or another and their vision had been slightly blurred haha yeah anyway, so we got hit on some more by drunk guys, until we finally got to the main street and people dispersed in different directions. We walked by "The Erotic Bakery" for the second time and Rita and I joked that Cecile and Mike would come back to it after we were gone lol It was alot of fun, even the car ride back home. When Cecile dropped off Mike at her house and Rita at her car, she took me home. We got to talk and stuff, which was nice. She gave me another cd because I said I liked it! lol I wouldn't have taken it, but she threatened to throw it out the window if I didn't take it.

Well, that was my fourth! I hope you had fun wherever you may have been :) Later!

Graduation jitters

It's so wierd, to think that graduation is less than a week away. I can exactly remember the beginning of this year, the whole senior thing being almost surreal, to the point that it went unnoticed to me. It was rare for me to feel like a senior, maybe because my mind had subconsciously tried to avoid the reality of it. You know when you leave a really fun place and you're on your way home, but you feel like you want the car to go slower so that you get there later, but you know you will get there eventually, and the disappointment builds from there on....this whole situation feels like that. You want it to slow down enough that you have a chance to look back and remember some of it, instead of the speed smear you experience in its place. And when school would go out for the summer and your friends had signed your yearbook with notes that read "see ya next year" or "keep in touch over the summer", and you had opened that yearbook so many times and read those notes over and over again to keep that feeling of being surrounded by the most pure friendship intact. But now your friends are signing your yearbook like a eulogy - "it was nice knowing you all these years, I hope your future is promising." You want to shake those people and tell them 'it doesn't have to be that way! We CAN still be friends!' To go from having such hope and contentment to constant uncertainty and confusion is the kind of thing that can spin you into pure excitement, or complete insanity. I can see how starting a new beginning in college can be refreshing, but it seems much more terrifying and larger than life at the moment. Like someone taking a child's favorite toy or a safety blanket. That's what 12 years of going to school for much of the day and coming home has been, a safety blanket. A predictable pattern. Something you can rely on to be the same every day. Change can be such a bitch...a mean and intimidating bitch. I don't know what to do with myself outside of covering my eyes and hears in denial....until that {fateful, scary, sad, amazing, terrifying, relieving, intimidating, proud and free} day that I have to put on that cap and gown and sit with my graduating class, full of people I may never see again in my life.

My Prom Dress..! EFF yeah.

This is the one I ordered today which should be coming in the mail Monday! It's not a giant gown or anything that special, but I fell in love with it because I thought it was gorgeous. I've seen TONS of dresses, and in the exception of that beautiful blue one I couldn't get, this was the only one I could see myself wearing comfortably without fussing, adjusting, and pulling on. In my eyes, it's the one, but we'll see for sure when I try it on! Let me know what ya think!

The Lake City Starbucks Chronicles..!

How's everyone's break so far? Hopefully all is well. Mine hasn't been the most exciting so far; on Friday, I saw "Guess Who" which was very funny, I would definitely recommend it :) But you gotta hear about Saturday night lol...

So everytime Chandra and I go to the 24-hour Starbucks in Lake City, something wierd happens to us.

The first time we went, we got lost on the way there and ended up all the way in West Seattle by Alki Beach! We finally got there with directions from Kristin and Chandra's mom. On the way home from there, we went through Kenmore (which has some FREAKY ASS backroads). So we were going through these really dark, gloomy backroads that were just lined with rows and rows of tall pine trees and not a city light to help us see better. So we're keeping an eye out, and Chandra screams all of a sudden because we drive by a row of mailboxes in this wood thing that has two red reflectors on the side that she thought were alien eyes or something. She screamed, so I screamed! It was hilarious..we were freaked out. Thankfully, I used to have relatives in Kenmore, so I'd go there often and knew the way back home. THAT was the first time we tried to go to Starbucks and come home in one piece.

This last Saturday, we got there safely and everything, and had our chat. Some kids from Inglemoor High came and talked the roof of the place off at like, 11:30 at night. We were infatuated with the cashier or as we call him "Starbucks guy" lmao I think the talks of Prom got to Chandra's head a little. She'd look at him through the reflection on the window and often blurt out, "*Gasp* Where'd he go?? Is that him with the mop??" lol..So we talked and stuff, and decided we'd go back to the cash register and I'd buy a passion tea lemonade and she got some water. He asked us if we had any plans for the night and Chandra says really quietly under her breath, "No, but you could go somewhere with us.." FREAKIN' HILARIOUS MAN. OMG that was great. And that wasn't the end of it..oh no. We go out to the car and it wouldn't start. So Chandra called her mom to see what she could do and attempts to change gears without the ignition and such didn't work. Her mom suggested that I PUSH the car back..LMAO..me!! I thought she was joking, but she was serious. So I got out in front of some people sitting in their car having a nice little chat and staring at us from their car window like we were zoo animals, while I got out and PUSHED the car back with my legs, and then with my arms. Awful. After maybe 100 tries, the car starts and we finally get home!! That was the last episode of The Lake City Starbucks Chronicles, I bet there will be more soon lmao reminds me of "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle"...

Until next time!

Kinichua, bitches.

Sitting around doing nothing is SO FUN! Yaay! Limited Time Offer: Membership to this exclusive Lonely Loser Club is at a low low price of $14.95!

I've had a busy week and all the energy I ever had is pretty much nonexistent right now. I wish I had some people to go out with or something, I feel so pathetic! lol the end of a long week should be celebrated, not wasted. This weekend I'm in the mood to see a movie or go shopping. Hmm...

Anyway, I've been thinking an awful lot about summer - or rather, craving it. The weather, the freedom. I don't really know what I'll be doing this summer, hopefully going somewhere on vacation. Graduation, above weekends, HAS TO BE CELEBRATED! lol no exceptions. Well I don't think there's much else to say at this point because everything I've said is random lol

Good night, people.
