my insides are telling me to blog, so i am. i never really liked 아파/ It hurts by 2NE1 at first, but it has now infected my mind...gah. I always thought Bom was a creepy looking plastic witch too, but after watching some episodes of 2NE1 tv as i layed in my bed and try to fall asleep...my views on her have changed, weird to say.
soo on friday, i went to the outlet (or more appropriately, Los Angeles's only shopping outlet) after work. I was off at 4 so I might as well kill some time because I usually get off at 6. I spent almost an hour after work copying stuff for myself...bleh. I also took my brother to the outlet because he said he wanted to go to the mall. I always like to tease my brother and i'm always spot on about the stuff he wants and then i just hella talk shit about it. Well I was spot on about what store he actually wanted to go to, (lids). I haven't gone to the outlet in awhile and since i've read that the newly expanded part has opened, I really wanted to go. I told my brother to go to the outlet instead since they have a lids there too, so he did on the basis that i drive...zzz.
upon arriving, i noticed that a huge christmas tree was up and then i noticed there were some special performers that were going to perform there in the coming month. as i walked more towards the interior of the outlet, i noticed one of the performers was charice! i then spazzed about it on facebook via my phone like a loser lol. well at the outlet we went to lids and since the hats were buy one get one half off, i may as well get one for myself.
forward to the next day and i find myself going to see charice by myself. so sad...but whatever. i'm not going to be some butt hurt, crying ass bitch about such small things like that.

when i found out about charice's performance, i noticed it was going to be the next day for the tree lighting ceremony. kind of cool that i found out a day prior, but driving to the same place the next day too...blah~ but i didn't have to deal with rush hour traffic like i did on friday. (yey...). i asked my closest friend but she said she had plans depending on the time. i didn't want to depend on her so i said i was going anyway, with or without her. i didn't even want to ask my other friend because she has her boyfriend and junk...and everyone else i know? i don't feel comfortable enough with to ask. i asked my mom if she wanted to watch "that filipino girl" with me too, but she had to work : (. my little brother got guilted into attending some shitty event at UCI so he was out. funny thing about the plans that my closest friend had was the hello kitty exhibit thing in Santa Monica Place? i think and my other friend i didn't bother asking went there too...lol. but enough of them...more of me...or charice.
charice sang "i love you" (some dance remix of it), "pyramid", a medley of short covers (just dance, party in the USA, and MJ's rock with you), an acapella of justin bieber's "you smile", then she sang beyonce's "halo" hella good, and her final song was "jingle bell rock" which was really good because whenever i think of that song, i just think of the movie 'mean girls'...lol so many songs! and it was free! i didn't even have to pay for parking (unlike the BoA event...she only sang 2 songs...and then it was over...lol).
the opening celebrity was australia's cody simpson. i think MORE people actually showed up for him than charice...so many teeny boppers...ehhh. he actually sounded good live too...but yeah i didn't really pay attention...his song "second chance at love" was catchy...(lol..), he sang some song on the guitar, and sang iyiyi as his last song. there might have been one more song...i don't remember.
the concert came to an end before i knew it...i was going to leave too because i thought after cody and charice were done, they'd just leave. it turns out that they actually stayed until santa came out and helped turn on the lights to the tree. so i walked around the stage area and then got to the back of it to catch charice finally leave...this was the best i got.
this one is clear...wao.
she's really skinny, very cute, and small.
charice is going to perform at "the grove" for another tree lighting ceremony on sunday @ 730pm also...but that's in west LA...ehhh~it was a great event. i got parking pretty easily, got home quite easily, and didn't pay for or buy anything!
since it is shopping season...i've been running into pretty good deals. ahhhh...some of my purchases since my last entry besides the hat are...
|26$ish...cheaper than chucks and ATLEAST HAS PADDING and regular price is 40-50$|
|@ 34.50 + tax...cheaper than an ASOS jacket i bought previously and looks better than some overpriced nike hoodie for example...lol|
|these bowling shoes in black @ 28$ total|
adding to my checklist, i mailed the financial aid and tax forms the CSU's have emailed me about weeks earlier...and typed a paragraph for one of the three UC prompts. i'm SO progressing...lol i'll get there. I WILL. i'm not even sure i'm working next week because this year alot of school kids have the WHOLE WEEK off for thanksgiving opposed to thursday and friday. i'll find out later...
my kids were SOO cute on monday. one of my kids asked me when elizabeth (their former teacher) was going to visit again and i said i didn't know, and then he asked me to text message her asking when she would. i did just that...lol
one of my students is a 2nd grader while the rest are in 3rd and i mentioned him previously, but this week his mom wrote me a note asking for 15 PREFERABLY 20 supplemental packets for him to work on over the break. all the things that go through my head was "oh...poor guy..." and then i recall his mother saying how she loves to push him to do extra work but holy shit! lol i also feel kind of like i blackmailed my student because i told him to take 3 packets home and then i went into his folder of packets and counted 13 to give to his mother...so he has 16 packets total. they aren't easy too because he did most of the math ones lol....i always wondered why he always looked so worn and tired...and i think i know why...he's such a sweet kid though lol (hopefully he doesn't retaliate towards his mother and cuss her out in the future or something for depriving him of his childhood). ideally...i would make him take 5, so he could do one mon-friday and be a kid on the weekend but i don't think i should voice my opinion unless his mother asks...it is a business and they do pay for the resources...so i have no choice...*sneaky eyes*
so yeah...it's almost 5am...the sun is going to rise soon...i need sleep.
the rest are random pictures and what i wore junk...lalala.
|i bought a red velvet one the day after because i forgot to buy cheese for my bag of salad AND IT WAS SO GOOD.|
|how do i go to school, go to work, be responsible for my own work, and be responsible for the work of my children at work? this. T___T|
|waiting for charice....i pushed my ass all the way to there and stood in the rain...i kind of wish i pushed my way forward more lol|
|was ready for the rain while waiting for charice...and the boots gave me extra height for picture taking =___=|
