Recap: Auditions| Concert. Target. Bike.
+Re: Yesterday I spent 3 hours practicing at the music building and hanging out there before the auditions. I met Gerard, a trumpet player who was waiting for a practice room when I got there. I practiced for an hour in a room when one was free. Headed down to the old firehouse. Man it’s old. While I was waiting my turn, the conductor came out and was checking the list and said ” Are...
First quarter at FIDM
tokyoplus: First quarter of FIDM ended on September 15th, but i was lucky enough to have it end on the Friday before this date. I’ve realized that i learned a lot from my effective speaking class, for i have changed dramatically on my public speaking skills. I have always thought that my final grade for that class would be a B+, since the chances of me getting a B+ on my speeches are greater than...
+ Wow. Today was a long day, but I shall recap yesterday, move-in day. Mom and Pop and I left at 0800 and arrived on campus at 1030. Finished unpacking at 0100. Baba lofted the bed so we have space underneath, but now when I wake up I have to be careful about not bumping my head because the ceiling space is really really low. We went to eat at In ‘n Out, which is the only thing the gps is...

Goong. Laptop. Lesson status.
+Watched Goong all day (got up to ep. 8) as I sorted paperwork and resorted my packed books and packed a little more. Now 99% done. + Got my laptop back, completely restored. Yeee :] + Ms. Friedhoff says she has one opening for lessons. Yay! Now if only I had enough money to pay for lessons and a gym membership.
San Francisco [Last hangout]
+ Bumpy morning. I woke up at 0745. Dad came at 900 on the dot, which I didn’t expect at all. He took the kungfu van. Picked up everyone- (Shirley),Kevin, Yujia. Drove to Sunnyvale to get license plates for the van. Headed to San Francisco. +Arrived at SF at 1130. Drove around in circles due to GPS. “Recalculating…recalculating..” -__- So we didn’t go the the...
I think I’m a waterholic.
Mountain View, Ca.
+ Yijing and I made arrangements to bike/lightrail to Mountain View to explore the shops there. I got up at 0900 and biked to her house at 1000 to help put on her bike accessories. When we just finished putting on all the stuff, baba called and said he was free…ugh. Might as well take the ride, so we did. +Drove there. + We ate dimsum. Walked down the streets and found 3 bookstores!!! 3!...
First rain of the season. I’m happy :]
New shoesies. Lbs. Liver Cleanse.
+ wowsers. This saturday passed by really quickly. Mom and I went to DSW to get some ‘rain’ boots. I ended up getting blowfish leather boots. They’re alright. I also got a new converse shoe (on clearance :]). It’s not jackparcell, but it’ll do as my next pair of walking shoes. Downside is that it’s made of canvas instead of suede, so it’s not waterproof...

I was going to bike to Shirley’s house today to return her Daiso stuff and maybe take a walk in the park, but right as I got my bike out of the shed, my mom called me and told me that we were going to go to Fry’s to get something that was on rebate today. Norton bundle pack. Original 100. Sale 70. Rebate 20. Not bad. While we were in the checkout line, I saw Ricky Truong, who always...
+ “You will soon be involved in many gatherings and parties.” LOL. Damn straight.
I hate American corporations. This is why I’m moving to Europe. Then I’ll equally hate the corporations there, and then will probably jump in the ocean.
Shark Attack. New Fence. Netbook. Career choices?
+ I slept at 5. Woke up at 8 bc someone dropped a call from ny :] Didn’t mind. Went back to sleep at 9 with the discovery channel on - talking about shark attacks. And so in my dream I was attacked by a shark. Chest wound and leg gash. .___. some scary shit but this still doesn’t beat the grudge hand dream. + New fencing makes our yard look spacious. I want to grow flowers where the...

+ My computer is officially dead and needs to be reinstalled the op (which my mom’s been wanting to do in a while). I blame this on avast!; it didn’t detect the other lessee…112 viruses and trojans that avg did! Not that it helped that I scanned it with avg, bc it couldn’t remove those files anyways. After 2 days, everything’s been infected to the point where I...
Feelings are only fleeting memories.
Bestbuy. Fry's. Bestbuy again...
+ Dad took sansan and me out to Bestbuy, so I could get a netbook. The first one we went to had the Toshiba one out of stock, so we went to Fry’s, but my dad wanted to go to Bestbuy for ‘points.’ We then drove to the Bestbuy at Santana Row, only to find out that they were out of stock too. Great. +Bought folders from Maido. Discovered that pilot makes different patterns for my...

+ 4th of July in NY. The big finale. It’s better in San Jose, there’s smiley faces :[ We were stuck between two buildings and the fireworks were coming from boats on the other side, on the Hudson river. +What is this?! Vimeo suckks. “Waiting in line” for 20 mins? What a joke.
