Tetris Tetris Tetris. How I love thy little shapes; How I adore the way they fit so perfectly together; Yet how I despise thee; How I writhe with anger when the blocks go a foul and tiny squares are left behind, empty holes that represent the emptiness of my soul when I lose. chels
/25/ It's not me, it's you. But I'm not going to...
Hello! Back from hiatus. Anyway, thought of the day: if you can’t change someone directly, be inventive and find a way to inspire that change indirectly. Put ideas, theories, and supporting evidence forward, and let them take whatever information they want. You can’t truly change a person unless they themselves want to change. At this point, I’m fine with just being the...
People’s relationship to life is an ever changing one. There are times when people can only see what the next two weeks will bring, and we complain as if victimizing ourselves is justified. Then something bad happens (or something good, but usually it’s something bad) and this short term lense we’ve been looking at life through suddenly shatters, and all we’re left with is...
/23/ Alice in Wonderland Review
So Alice in Wonderland was quite interesting. Nothing I wouldn’t expect from Tim Burton. It was quite an aesthetically impressive film, paying close attention to every detail that ultimately created a fantasy land I’ve never seen before. The characters were not unusually crazy, and it was quite funny. I loved the bloody big head queen, as well as the white queen. But my favorite...
/22/ Be jealous of me.
Very excited for my first pre-screening of a movie… ever! So this is what it’s like to be special… chels
/19/ It was for you.
Just for your information, entry /18/ was for you. I know you asked about it before, but for some reason I didn’t want to tell you. But yes, it was for you. Thanks for another perfect weekend. chels
/18/ Here’s to the pilot that weathered the storm.– George Canning chels
/17/ Lightening and Thunder.
You know those days when you feel so annoyed that the very feeling of electricity and negative energy is flowing through and penetrating every single part of your body? Yeah, I’m having one of those moments right now. I don’t know what/where the exact source of emotions originates from, but whatever/wherever it is, it’s doing overtime right now. chels
Be open and free, but not reckless. Be friendly and happy but not expectant. Be confident and decided, but open. Be responsible, and think everything through before coming to a conclusion. Don’t be scared of new things or failure. Live in the present, but focus on growing from the past and working towards the future. Be independent, and be strong. Appreciate the sounds, smells, simplicity of...
/15/ Every sweet has its sour; every evil its good.– Ralph Waldo Emerson chels
/14/ It begins at the roots.
So there have been many recent campaigns surrounding the awareness of the small population of African American students within the UC system, as well as campaigns to increase those numbers. However, I highly doubt these attempts to make a change will do much if anything at all. I think the key concept they are missing is that the problem doesn’t lie within the UC system; it’s not so...
Isn’t it ironic that my unlucky #13 post is about how lucky I am? I had the best weekend ever! chels
/12/ Reading for fun?
So tonight I basically did nothing, yet it felt like an amazingly thoughtful day. It started in the morning when I went to an interview for a social work internship. In American society, “success” is simplistically represented monetarily, more so than any other individual factor. The pressures of social status and the associated hierarchy is enormous, almost overwhelming in my opinion....
/11/ Family dinners
It pains me to watch people have family dinners when they look like they’re in pain bring there. chels
/10/ Good luck
I’m officially on my iPhone. And now, you’ll never hear the end of it. chels
/9/ Back to basics
You know when you get so caught up in the errand you have to run tomorrow right after that first thing you have to do but you have to be sure you do both those things before that other thing? And if you don’t finish you get that “it’s the end of the world” feeling? Yeah, life’s been feeling a bit dramatic (off and on), and considering the world-wide events that have...
/8/ Past, present and future
Tonight I watched this Nickelodeon channel that I receive through my wonderful DVR service that plays old (aka 1990s) shows from when I was a kid. I originally chose that channel to lessen the creepiness of sitting downstairs in the dimly lit living room while I attempted to do some work (didn’t really speed through it like I imagined in my head), but ended up watching Justice League Now!...
/7/ I'm back...
Hello world! I’m back now. No really, I’m back. I promise I’ll be good about this. Along with many other goals for 2010, including but not limited to: learning how to cook better (not well, but at least learn how to make things other people besides myself find edible), being more positive and appreciative of what I have (a.k.a. stop being a whiney and materialistic), take more...
/6/ Ah Morning.
7:52 am. I love watching the day slowly come into existence; the mountain’s silhouette becoming more defined, the sky’s darkness fading and the light growing brighter… Oh yeah, but maybe this would be more beautiful if I had just woken up instead of headed to go to sleep. Another sleepless night spent at Pikachu with Roxanne and Hannes. But hey, no regrets. Sleeping at a...
/5/ I love limited edition stuff.
So I definitely fell off track after I wrote that last blog, because I ended up just reading other blogs. Anyway, came across this on the Hellz-Bellz blog: Sounds quite limited, and I secretly (ok maybe not secretly) love limited edition things. It just makes it feel that much more special, even if it is just a marketing ploy so brands can charge 9283592734597 times more for the same stuff....
/4/ Midnight Maniac
I’m a maniac, maniac! (Who remembers that song? Ok, maybe “remember” isn’t an appropriate word seeing as I was not born when that song came out in ‘83). Tell me why it’s almost 3am, and I am on point with this studying thing (with the exception of this blog break). I just start feelin’ alive around midnight, and I have no idea why. I am a conformist when...
So, this is blogging huh? Interesting. Exciting, full of possibilities, but confusing. Such a typical combination when encountering something new. But lately, I’m really liking new things. Coming from someone who hated change, I think I’ve come a long way. Talked to Andrea today on the MTR on the way to Shenzhen, and she told me about tumblr, so I thought I would give it a try. I...
