So this is the second year where I've taken out my birthday on Facebook and not really tell anyone that my birthday has come up. In a sense, I've given up on people actually caring about my birthday and whatnot. I'm so over so called "friends". And then in another aspect of things, I feel like it's just added pressure of trying to make something of myself.
|Besides the "Catwang" app, "Photowonder" has the next best stickers. lulz.|

Just spewing out some food for thought~
Funny how I don't see my little cousins the same way I do the kids at work. But then again, I see the kids at work much more often than I do my little cousins. Whenever I hear my them enter my house, all I can think of is "what can I do to keep them occupied and not make a mess?". My brother learned to print out coloring sheets for them and they just held on to them until I came downstairs. If it wasn't for me asking if they wanted to color, they wouldn't ever have been able to. My brother is such a fart face. I LOVE how my brother just half asses everything. After coloring, I asked them if they wanted to watch a movie and HJ (the boy) asked if I had anything Ninja Turtles. Sadly, all I got was Wall-E and UP! on DVD (LOL). We ended up watching UP! since I haven't watched it in a long time. I ran into my room and they followed me (which I didn't want them to). I then got the DVD and said we'd watch it in the living room so HJ and the little sister starting going back down. Funny thing is that little sister took one step and said "I can't go down" in Cantonese to me and I'm, like, all "LOL" inside and carried her down. She's not much of a talker and has this pissed off face all the time so I can't really read her. I gave her my Domo plush to carry around for the rest of the time she was over.
For Chinese New Year I got a whopping amount of red envelopes. I got a whopping FOUR red envelopes. I don't really care too much since I work, but yeah. I feel like times like these, I'm being culturally disconnected from my heritage because we're not as festive anymore.
We started this thing where when we would eat out in my birthday month, I would go to Krispy Kreme for some donuts. The first time it happened, I had korean fried chicken from "Kyochon" in the same area, but that place closed down a couple years ago.
|Ughhhh~ supposedly, they're expanding in southern California. Maybe there will be one closer to home in the near future. I didn't get to get any heart shaped donuts this year because we went there are night : (|
|Our most normal looking pictures.|
|Pictures from my phone.We were so ugly in high school...lol|
As for my fitness goals, I was hoping to have a perfectly flat stomach by my birthday like I stated on my Instagram. Sadly, my goal didn't really happen. I still have that stubborn pooch but I'm slowly leaning out and although my stomach isn't perfectly flat, it looks much better than what it was two years ago. I went through my pictures trying to find good comparable pictures but all I've been faced with is regret for flexing my stomach, using different quality cameras, and altering lighting. Guess that shows how self conscious I am of myself. When I'm moving my hips, jumping around, and doing chest pops like an insane person in my room though, I can definitely see that my stomach is tighter. I also feel more meat than chub when I put my hand on my waist, and I can say that it feels damnnnn good.
Even though all my before pictures in the last year are looking the same to me, on with the pictures.
|Oh~! here's an old picture of Lisa and me 4 years ago. Just for kicks to compare to the above pictures (LOL). If you think we were boring looking then, you can imagine how much worse we were in high school. These were all post-high school.|

|2010 (I think...) vs. 1/25/2013... is there even a difference? ; O ; ~ Basically, I got more of an upper body and bigger back.|

|I run 2-4 times a week. I ran earlier today (2/23), so it's now at 60.58 mi and 6363 calories. It was a light run. Today's not a cardio day :d ~ Added to today's workout since my mom worked. There were no errands to run.|
Fastest 1K -- 5 minutes 6 seconds
Fastest 1 mile -- 8 minutes 16 seconds
Fastest 5K -- 38 minutes 51 seconds
Fastest 10K -- 1 hour 22 minutes 35 seconds
Keep in mind that I hate sports and I was never an athelete, sOOooooooo YAH.
Lastly, I ordered some stuff from Topman because I have chronic sales section checking disorder and stumbled upon some really cheap stuff that was in my size. I took the gamble and surprisingly all my stuff shipped. I, however, still haven't received them yet *sad face*. Hopefully, they'll arrive this coming week.
|$5 (orig. $72... O_o)|
|$8 (orig. $44)|
|$15 (orig. $72)|
|$20 (orig. $36... I needed to get to the minimum for free shipping/ this will redistribute into the other stuff...lol)|
|$10 (orig. $24... my current brown belt got all wonky and stretched... > _ >;;)|
The rest are images of stuff...but not all the stuff from my Instagram, since last entry
