Ain't no virgin or no Virgo. I'm crazy. That's my word though. It's Ke$ha in the casa, baby. Let's get loco~♪
Hello, my little online diary. I finally have some air to breathe after typing papers and studying for finals. I'm also glad I had my finals a week before many other people who are on a semester schedule. Woo~ woo! Haven't really done much since my last major entry besides trying to keep up with my fitness goals and unintentionally keeping up my GPA (it's mainly because I want to get the most out of my education).
I just noticed I am able to do the photosphere (like how Google street view looks) pictures that's capable on the new Nexus 4. Here's one of my room, sort of. lol...You don't know the trouble I went through to get 4.2 because apparently, I messed up something with the stock ROM so I wasn't update to update OTA, and had to flash everything to exactly the way it should be. Afterwards, I prompted my phone to update and it finally went through.
|I'm one step ahead of you apple snobs ;P ~ jk.|
So, Halloween has passed. I work with children so one of the things I look most forward to is when they dress up for Halloween. It's just something about seeing a mini version of a profession or cartoon that just makes me go all apeshit crazy. I just go "AWWWW!!" to all of them and want to give them big hugs (lol for doing absolutely nothing).
Also being the old sack of crap that I am, I don't want to go to school in the morning one day and go to school at night the next (or on the same day), so I ended up finding another class to get out of the way but couldn't find another to be considered a full time student. Oh well...although I do want to move on to bigger and better things, that path I choose to take isn't exactly clear to me yet.
Is it weird that I don't find it degrading when a little kid asks me if I could help tie their shoe for them? I feel like such a old man going "you don't know how to tie your shoes yet? you're so smart, why!??" --ties shoelace-- lol
Moving on, election night came up soon after. I had class but I was basically scrolling through my twitter feed like crazy that night. (LOL) Growing up in the LA county, I was always educated at a very liberal standpoint while having some conservative parents. It didn't really hinder me from having my own opinion or whatnot. Such examples would be like my dad asking me about my position on Prop 8 and him going "how can a child have 2 moms or dads" and me replying "well, not all moms are good moms". I didn't state anything about all heterosexual parents being "good parents". I also didn't say any crap about kids being incapable of learning about their situation. A girl at my workplace was adopted from China and has a white dad. She's known about her adoption pretty early. I knew her since she was in 2nd or 3rd grade (she's in 6th grade now, I think...Gawd, when I see her graduate from 8th grade, that's when I know I need to move on... haha...). But anyway, she is totally happy and fine knowing that she was adopted. I've also never seen her cry. And once, I was talking to my mom about someone and how he or she spoke out against communism. I ended up Google translating the word to her and asking her what she thought but she totally just brushed me off. I always come off as very stand off'ish to my parents but I swear, it's better than my idiot brother who just neglects them until he needs something (like my mom's credit card to pay for his cellphone bill he shouldn't have gotten in the first place since he can't afford it). I can actually voice my opinion, so I will do so. I'm a registered independent but I'm pretty much sided with the democratic party since I live in a two party system. I don't get how my friend could be a Romney supporter when we come from similar backgrounds AND she's a woman, but I still respect her and consider her a friend. In the back of my mind, I'll probably forever be like "how could you? *squints*" but there's more to her than what she views as "politically correct". It's kind of funny because she works in environmental science and green jobs is more of a democratic thing than a GOP thing. Some old GOP dinosaurs don't even believe in global warming...

I'm totally going off subject but anyway, my mom would have to wake up 2 hours earlier for what should be a 15-20 minute commute by car. I come from a very working class background so we don't exactly live a lavish lifestyle. When my coworker would ask me if I'm doing anything special over break, literally nothing comes to my mind. She'd then reply "nothing?" and I'm like "hah...yeah.". Everyday is basically work, dinner, sleep, errands, and an occasional holiday off. And on that holiday off, it's just lay around at home. My mom would say she's considering getting another car but more money would have to go towards insurance and such. I would then tell her to tell my brother something along the lines of "your time is up. I'm taking the car back and you take the bus to school and home". In this way, he'd know how my mom feels waking up earlier than needed and maybe learning to appreciate his life and what he has more. Sadly, this never happens and my mom would go on about what car to get. I kept pushing for a hybrid car because it's more cost saving and she goes on her little self righteous rant about how a battery replacement would cost two thousand dollars and I counter by telling her there's a 10 year warranty for those. I also tell her that if gas prices keep going up or stay at the current price right now, the money she'd save from gas can go to maintaining it. The car would basically pay for it's own repairs and tire replacements. If gas prices rise, the car would pay for itself sooner than later. She would then go on about how ugly a Prius is and how it's so close to the ground which is ironic because she got a Matrix later on.
I'm also sort of bitter at that choice of a Matrix because when I started working at my current workplace, I never had a choice or any say in what car I could potentially drive. If my mom liked hatches so much, I would've opted for a Mazda 3 five door. But no, my parents opted for what my dad calls our Honda "VCR". You'd think I'm saying that as a joke because he's said it once. He's, however, said it it on multiple occasions. I've also pitched to them that if they wanted to save some money, they should really consider a Korean car because they've come a long way. They've never listened to me about that either, and now you see all these disappointing looking Japanese cars like the fugly Nissan Juke, Boring Honda Civic and Accord, and Toyota recently revealed the fugly redesign of the RAV4 at the LA Auto show. KIA and Hyundai, on the other hand, both have different design aesthetics but have been unveiling BEAUTIFUL cars with greater reliability and quality than American cars while being competitive when it comes to pricing. I was totally pushing for the KIA Sportage because they were so set on a compact SUV. Ugh, you can see how I'm so bitter because no one ever listens to me. What they've taught me is that I should be like my brother and squat my way through early adulthood to get a car. I wouldn't have had to take the bus home for a month and drive my cousin's car while she was in China to have a job. I could've just taken all those "go find a job. don't waste your time" lectures in, and not do anything. They tell me I should set an example, but they're setting a poor example FOR ME. Weird how I'm saying this as if I'm a child but I'm an adult. I'm almost 24. I, however, do still feel like I have a lot more growing up to do though...so yeah.
Times like these, I just want to run away and be on my own. Too bad I'm not from one of those European cities where I could do that with a part time job. It'd be possible because school is essentially free and rent would be controlled. I wouldn't need a car if the town is small. I'm sure public transport is better networked and funded either way. Sigh~ but don't get me wrong, I'm appreciative of everything given to me. I'm also learning what I can't learn in school because I don't just sit my ass in my room all day and night like my brother does. You might or might not know how hard it is to feel alone in that way. Where no one ever really listens. Ugh...
Here's our Matrix, by the way. I was annoyed I couldn't find an AUX cable in my room while I have tons of power plugs for computers. I later realized after work that I could set up an audio stream via Bluetooth so that eliminated the need for one. Also as I sat in the school parking lot that night while semi-studying, I noticed it had a moon roof. That's like the most feature packed car we have at home. Our "VCR" is like the most BASIC of "VCR"s. I'm glad for that though because for Hondas, the audio systems need a code for whenever the power is unplugged (like when you change batteries) or the stereo won't work AT ALL if you have a nicer stereo. Mine looks like a FUGLY ass aftermarket deck no one wants, so yeah. I never needed to input a pass code for my stereo for when I had to change my car battery, and THANK GOD because I don't even know there the manual is for it.
I bought two really cute Mickey tops from ASOS because they were on sale, yet still pricey. The HM Mickey stuff is so cheap looking along with the price and Topman's is REALLY PRICEY. I ended up getting the Mickey tee for $23 or so and the tank for $18 or so. If they were from Topman, they'd be around $30~$40...HELL TO THE NO!
|I was very close to buying a tank in the exact same print but in gray. Thankfully, it didn't happen because that would make me an impulsive monster. I'm a financially responsible mister!|
Gonna share some of her pictures without her permission because I'm such a horrible friend.

Well anyway, I still have more fat to burn off and that V thing to work on. I'll start focusing on specific parts of my body later on. I really envy and hate those people who already had a nice body to begin with and then just built it up. For me, on the other hand, it has felt like ONE HELLUVA roller coaster ride. But in the end, it teaches me to be a fighter who'll never give up. Woo....~
In my final words before I go to bed, I finally got myself a Clarisonic Mia or shall I say, ordered one. I got it from drugstore.com for $119 - %20 off = $95.20 + tax = $103.53 and I should be getting 12% cash back from ebates which would be $103.53-11.42 (I get in cash back) = $92.11 as my final total. lol. I would've saved more if drugstore.com didn't start charging CA customers tax again...meh.
Here are some pictures of my child-like face if you don't already follow me on instagram. Goodnight my lovely readers~ciaooo♥ (If anyone cares or misses me, I'll try my best to upload a new video by Thursday. It's suppose to rain on Thursday heheheh).
