Spring Breaking

28 Mar

This break started out pretty good. Once I came back, Emily and I went out to get Les Mis on DVD. It was a monumental moment (as I am sure you guys have gathered). I’d been saving gift cards so I could splurge on the most expensive version with all the bonus items… I got the edition with the collectible cards. You guys really shouldn’t be surprised. LOL. I’m not going to lie, I’ve probably watched that movie at least 15 times already.

Saturday I woke up with a sore throat. Not bueno. So I’ve been sick all week. My immune system has not been on its game this year. Anyway I ended up having a low grade fever for a couple days that was off and on. But I slept a lot. So that part was nice. I’m glad I didn’t have class this week because that would have sucked to have to worry about missing class and being sick.

Other things I did on Saturday:
-ate Dim Sum with my family
-went to the Asian market
-ate at Golden Corral for their all you can eat Prime Rib with my family
-watched it snowwwww! (ps. I’m getting tired of the snow now)
-had a Birthday Cake shake from HiBoy
-Hung out with you lovelies (except for that kid we never hear from anymore) and played spoons. LOL. Good times guys.

This is probably a bad thing, but I haven’t done anything academic until today. Meh. Oh well. I’ll get it done eventually.

Tomorrow Kendyl and I are road-tripping to St. Louis to visit an old WJC friend for the day. I’m actually really excited about it since we haven’t seen her in a while. Plus I haven’t visited St. Louis in a while either since I was like 10 (unless you count those few hours we waited in the Amtrak station going to and from Chicago).

After tomorrow, break will pretty much be over. That’s depressing. But then only 2 months until summer! Yay!

I think that’s it for this week.
Peace Out!

It’s the Lunar New Year!

10 Feb

Happy Chinese New Year!!! This is probably my favorite holiday of the year. Family, red envelopes, and lots of tasty food! Today I had dim sum with my cousins. It was delish.

And just FYI, it’s the year of the snake!

Here’s some videos for your procrastination purposes.

This guy isn’t even Asian, and he knows more Chinese than I do. I bring dishonor to my family. Haha! Just kidding. : )

Wishing you prosperity and happiness in the new year!

Happenings.

7 Feb

Hey guys. To be honest, this week, like most of your weeks, have been pretty dull. Not all that much is exciting in my life.

Remember how in my last few posts I talked about not wanting to do anything academically productive? Well the bad news is that it is all finally catching up to me. I have a paper due tomorrow, a test on Tuesday, multiple online assignments, and like a million readings to catch up on. I don’t know how people live like this for extended periods of time, just not caring about a single class. Maybe it’s just the Asian-ness in me. LOL. But I already regret not doing anything so much! And I just have so much stress right now and I’m pretty sure that’s the reason why my eye has been twitching non-stop for like the past 3 days. Actually I’m not for sure that’s the reason why, I might just have low potassium levels. Haha. But the good news is my sickness/cold is subsiding! Yay!!

Anyway did I mention I hate Thursdays? I believe I already have. But I’m saying it again. And actually I don’t hate every Thursday, just every other Thursday where I’m on campus until 7ish. Today was that Thursday. My last class is probably the stupidest class ever. Mainly because it is really unorganized and every time the professor talks, I just kind of automatically tune her out because she speaks like 5 words a minute. And also because it goes until 6:35. And I am usually starving by the end of it.

Tomorrow I start my 3 day, seasonal job working at the Candy Factory. I’m only working a total of about 9 hours for the Valentine’s holiday. But it pays pretty well, more than I was expecting. And honestly, my bank account is looking pretty pathetic at the moment. What I earn will help cover some bills, so I’m actually pretty stoked!

Sunday is CHINESE NEW YEAR! And I’m really excited but I don’t really have any plans. My mother is going to StL with my Grandmother, Aunt, and one of my cousins for an Asian CNY celebration. And my other cousins invited me to go eat Dim Sum Sunday morning back home. So there’s a possibility I might be going back this weekend… If I decide to be productive and finish a majority of my studying and homework that is…
