real talk

if you are like me, you are reaching a point or about to reach a point where you are discovering your path to life. but you also aren’t alone..

you’re beginning to find out that certain friends around you have also made that discovery, and are embarking on their journey to their appropriate vocation.

in other words– we’re splitting up, but in a good way.

sometimes we get so settled in our comfort zones that we become afraid of doing something new. we like the way things are too much, and don’t want them to change.

but change is inevitable. and with that inevitability comes the bittersweet goodbyes. the goodbyes to your beloved friends and family who have made their own discoveries and have made the bold, courageous decision to chase their dreams, or maybe even just to change their surroundings.

i have to admit that although my heart is uplifted and filled with joy for those who are making such difficult decisions, i am also saddened.

i have been one to see the “good” in goodbye, but by no means does that place me as a pro at bidding farewell.

i can only hope that whatever path they take, that it brings them happiness, fulfillment, knowledge, and understanding. whether that is attained in reaching their destination, or the journey itself.

i can also take refuge in the fact that i let the people i care about, know that i care about them. never have i once been ashamed about letting someone know that i cared.

there is no shame in real talk.

for tomorrow is never promised.

I wish you all of God’s blessings on this wonderful journey that has been bestowed upon you. May your burdens be light, your travels be safe, and your fortunes be abundant. Rest assured that it will delight my heart the day we meet again.

You should never be afraid of the destination that awaits you..
someone is calling you there.

remember how i told you about my sister and father’s FAILED attempt in buying healthy food? well i decided to intervene. our refrigerator now has tofu, bok choy, celery, grapes, soy milk, and other yummy goodies that are also good for the body.

i’ve been cooking as well as helping to cook kimchi fried rice, soondo boo, crab cakes, kare-kare to spend MORE time with the family and spend LESS money. (fuck this economy)

yesterday pops asked me to buy some salmon at stater bros (along with various other things) because relatives were swinging by the house.

at the market, i get a phone call from dad
dad: where are you
me: stater brothers
dad: what! me too?!

and lo and behold, in the produce section was MY DAD. the person who told me to go to stater bros in the first place, only to end up going himself.

 

this is another problem entirely.

 
at least we’re eating healthier (-.^)V

Sorry I haven’t been on that blogging tip. It’s been a hectic couple of weeks.
However, this does not mean that potential blogging topics have not been ruminating in my head.

 

I just haven’t had the time to blog them.

So just in case I forget; I will be posting blogs in the (near) future about
– loss of life
– Michael Jackson
– James J Dilla Yancey
– Love is hype

They’re permanent residents in my head now and it’s about time I share my thoughts with the rest of the blogging world.

Anyway, time for bed. I have a macroBARFenomics midterm tomorrow morning which I am definitely not excited for (refer to previous post). It’s almost impossible for me to take summer school seriously. Especially if I’m not at mount. Especially if it’s summer and I just turned 21 and all I want to do is cut a rug and kick it with the homies. Especially since it’s not nursing related at all. Especially since I think macroeconomics is the most boring subject ever and does not stimulate my mind at all.

But hey, education is a blessing.

best bahleeeeee dat

i just finished cooking a pot of spaghetti for stephanie. no hot dogs included. a couple of days ago my mom left for the philippines and so did tita lerma. so essentially my dad, my sister, and i are alone. i came home to the house after one day of being gone and the kitchen was already a mess.

i think my family– namely my sister and my dad have a hard time eating healthy. they have particular tastes and only enjoy vegetables if they are fried or soaked in peanut oil. i confronted them and asked them to buy healthier groceries so that we can have healthier choices in the house.

my dad agreed that stephanie and he would make a trip to trader joe’s — a market famous for specialty foods, nutritious alternatives, and organic foods. they came home and i was delighted to see the number of cardboard totes they held in their hands..

only to be disappointed to find they were filled with gourmet potato chips.

haha fantastic. fancy junk food. now we can get fat with class.

i have more work than i thought.
it will be an interesting 3 weeks.

I hate complaining. Even though I do it from time to time, it still bothers me to mutter something so negative. I could have used that time complaining to say “ooh you have a nice smile” or “what do you think about artest being a Laker?”

However the past couple of days have been

SO

RIDICULOUSLY

HOT.

and no, i’m not talking about, i walked around all day and NOW i’m sweating. I’m talking about, “what the fuck? when did I move to Vegas?” type weather. The crazy phenomenon about this heat too is that it hypnotizes you into a slumber throughout the day.

I’d rather have it humid than this hot oven with the exhaust fan turned on. I feel like my skin is crackling as soon as I step outside of my car, out of my house, outside in general.

So in short, I would like to thank God for the wonderful invention of aircon.
Because without it, we’d be lechon– HI OHHHHH!!!!
