I’m getting lazy at this already and didn’t take a pic at the gym.
Day of firsts for the year. First day of class in America again. First day of riding public transport again in America. First day of cooking again in America. First day of working out again. It feels good. I am so out of shape. I’m gonna regain all the weight I lost.

A day late. On the road to SD in SoCal. Sunshine, warmth, lots of cars and traffic, yup it’s SoCal.

Packing and leaving. Heading back down to SD tomorrow. This is not even half the stuff I’m bringing down and the majority of stuff I’m bringing down is food or kitchen stuff so I don’t have to buy down there. Sometimes I wish I would just pack less or my mom would stop shoving so much extra stuff into my packing.

@H&M. SF hangout with JC and EJ. Gahhh I miss them so much! But it was definitely nice to catch up. And I tried a super good mint mojito iced coffee at Philz Coffee. Back to H&M. No. It is not the same as in Europe. This is not H&M. The layout sucks and there’s no organization or good style. I think I’m just going through Danish fashion and people withdrawal.

Alright 2013, come at me. I’m ready for you. A jar for every happy moment, a picture for every day, and getting back to at least 130# because damn I miss being in shape. 2012, you were many things to me good and bad but I definitely would not be the same without you. Here’s to moving forward.

Side note: you have no idea how freaking excited I got for this jar. It’s a glass Nutella jar from Europe. I can’t believe how overly excited I got for this jar :P

09.14.2011Day One Hundred Forty

A Stuff of stuff to bring down to the apartment in SD. I am excited. Sometimes I feel like I pack too much, but then again it’s mostly large items in those boxes. Also, my mom insists on overpacking so last year I had a LOT of stuff to lug down. I’m trying to cut down on stuff. Although I am bringing a box of food down to save money :P

Hum, I’m getting lazy about doing Project 365.

Monday: my lovely Wacom tablet for a few lovely people who lovingly bestowed it upon me on a special day. LOL but I finally put it to good use this summer since I haven’t had any creativity til now. Actually, it was mostly for making slides for Welcome Week events next week. Monday was a little stressful.

Tuesday: GPOYT haircut. It’s finally thinned so that maybe I can spike up the top again. And my bangs were thinned a little too much. Same with the sideburns. Now I must wait for them to regrow. Oh iPod Touch’s pitiful quality. Is it sad that I like the fact that I can pass as half? Though oftentimes I wish my skin were much tanner.

09.11.2011Day One Hundred Thirty-Seven

I can’t believe I kept this newspaper for an entire decade, back then when we used to receive the newspaper. Time sure does fly even for a decade, and yet I can remember clearly the day of 9/11. It made no sense to me back then as a young nine-year-old in fourth grade who regularly watched morning cartoon shows before school, but it has made a large impact, from current events surrounding 9/11 that has affected everyday life such as airplane travel, to becoming more aware of the global world. I remember it was around 7:30 or so when I was eating breakfast and flipping through the TV for my usual cartoon shows when I saw a report of some towers being hit by a plane. I didn’t think too much of it and returned to my usual shows, and told my dad about the place, to which he thought wasn’t true. At around 8, we proceeded to pick up a neighbor, whose mother told us in shock if we had heard about the planes flying into the WTC. I responded to my dad with “I told you so” not knowing the severity of the event. At school, the teachers sat in disbelief as we watched the news for a little bit. At home, we turned on the TV to see that every single channel was covering this state of emergency. The images and stories were powerful in conveying a sadness, and I began to feel a somberness over the events.

There were so many iconic photographs of the event, from the man jumping to firefighters with the American flag over the WTC rubble. May this day be remembered both in our generation and the future. Most importantly, may this day be remembered not as a tragic event in which America was defeated by the horrors and immense scale of an attack, but through the way we came together in cooperation and empathy in aiding each other to find healing.

09.10.2011Day One Hundred Thirty-Six

A family of lovebirds at the place where my parents got hardwood for flooring. So apparently the family started off as a pair of lovebirds who hatched four other chicks. The owners were cleaning the cage and forgot to close the door so the mother bird took off, leaving the father bird with four chicks. Being left alone, the father bird learned to raise the four on his own, from regurgitating food for the chicks and caring for them. A few months later, the mother bird returned to the cage, but took off again as soon as she saw her four chicks. Yet again a few months later, she returned. This time with a male bird of a different species that was its new mate. That part was kind of depressing, but it was amazing to hear how a father bird was able to raise a whole family on his own.
