Oh blogger, I haven't forgotten about you. It's just that my life is so boring that I just don't bother. Nonetheless, I'm back and will just go on and on about boring stuff. I've been working on a new layout which has been kind of frustrating since I can't design and code for beans, but there shall be one coming soon.
Since I've been gone, I haven't done much really. I ate out a bit and I donated to the Oklahoma disaster. I don't really donate because of guilt or to make myself seem like a saint or anything, in all honesty. I feel like it's something everyone should be doing because everyone needs a helping hand and if it had happened to you, you'd want the same. I put this out in hopes that other people who happen read my blog would, maybe, understand where I'm coming from or what I'm trying to get at. I mean, the tornado itself was a freaking mile wide. I can't imagine myself in that situation without hoping where ever I'd be, that there is an underground storm shelter I would be able to run into.
Going back to the boring-ness, I kind of fear but can't wait to graduate school, THE CONVENTIONAL WAY. Part of me kind of wished that I took a unconventional approach to life after high school but I'll stand by my decisions since I can't really do anything about it. I'm partially stuck on these reflections since there's this junior in high school who I see rather frequently at work who would ask me what she should do after high school. I can only tell her so much of my own experiences and her future is ultimately in her own hands.
Moreover, I learned someone I knew from elementary school is working for Twitter now and I'm kind of bitter about it. I know once I'm officially done with school there will be bigger adult decisions and obstacles to face but stuff like that only means that I should start moving on to bigger and better things sooner. There's also this one girl I knew of in high school who went to a community college for a year, transferred to Berkeley, and now works for Firefox. She didn't seem super smart or anything either. She was like a sorority girl type. The guy I knew from elementary school, however, was pretty smart (on paper anyway).
The timing is amazing too, I guess. Since I'm taking a break this summer from work to reflect upon myself and what's ahead of me, stuff like this just even more thought provoking(being all up in my face and all). My professor for my last theme class said I write really good papers and I was like "what? no. me? huh? --awkwardness--". I knew she was pretty young but I didn't know that she was only about 5 years older than me, and I only found out because I searched for her on Facebook to a picture of her to my friend (LOL). Her prompts were pretty easy so I kind of whizzed through her essays because they only required a minimum of two pages. The topics in that class were pretty relative to everyday life, so I don't really see such a challenge in writing for her. I would write them the night before after my whole "be a good schoolboy" mentality went away after the second or third week of the quarter. I was originally suppose to have some middle eastern professor with a heavy accent, so it was kind of a blessing to have her take over. I also thought it was kind of nuts in the beginning because she was so pretty and rather business-casual stylish. She's also a business owner that takes part in gathering sponsor money for new media (basically YouTube) and stuff. TOTALLY NUTS! She's also not a born and raised Angeleno but from Hawaii, so she has this slight pidgin accent in her speech. She looks prettier in person though. Her Facebook pictures don't do her justice (LOL). I won't go around posting pictures though. I'm not that huge of a creep, but yeah. She's pretty cool and someone to look up to.
Similarly, I have a follower who is making me all rainbows and unicorns because he also has qualities similar to the professor I just mentioned, and I have yet to mention that he was once overweight and majored in practically the same thing as me. STOP BEING SO ATTRACTIVE. --talks to thin air--
