An inspiration....

Alright, so i'm just sitting around now, I might as well blog about something. I've been going through a lot over the years and it's been a very difficult path which i'm sure most of you know how that goes. I am not the only unlucky woman on this planet and at least I know that. I am a little homesick. I'm a small town girl and thinking that moving to a bigger city would be more thrilling and exciting, which it is! But it's a lot more difficult to get around and make friends when you don't know anyone here. So I guess i'm feeling a little loser-ish. I was thinking of my younger brother and how he's doing on his own at college. A Pre-med student he is. I must admit, I am jealous and wish I was more like him. But that's what sets us apart as individuals right? 

2 years ago during my younger brother's senior year of highschool, he was hospitalized 3 times for his lung collapsing. Stayed in the hospital 2 weeks each time it happened and missed a lot of school. We were so afraid. And I think for him, in the dark, he found the light. And Today, he's doing very well. Just can't ride roller coasters. Haha. 

Anyway, I missed him and couldn't forget his love for music. He picked up the guitar right away after he came home from surgery all 3 times. This video was taken less than 2 weeks after his 3rd hospitalization. Watch this video of him covering The Scientist by Coldplay. 

Now I wish I was as musically talented as he is. I can't wait to see him graduating and going off to Med school and accomplishing his goals. For all the things we've gone through, it just makes you realize there really is a light at the end of the tunnel. And "you aren't alive if you're not living". - taken from Rich in I Love You Beth Cooper

Another older one he recorded of himself covering Hey There Delilah.

A deep voice, but still good. This was probably taken in 2006. Ahh the memories. How I miss them. and if I could, I would totally repeat them. But that's the blessing of memories because if it becomes repetitive, it's less memorable and less valuable right? 

The things we do for love and to be loved... makes your heart melt doesn't it?

I guess bad things really do happen before it can get better. Life doesn't wait for you so live it! :)

Sunday Fun-day

So it's Sunday the 16th. Aaaaaaaaaand I'm still laying in bed. Almost 2 pm. I'm such a lazy butt. But that's what Sunday's are for right? After a long rough Saturday, who wouldn't want a hot bowl of Pho? If you've never had pho, it's the best soup dish ever. I usually put chicken in mine or fried pork but you can select any meat you want, how much veggies you want and what sauces you want. Love love love. I suggest you go to a Vietnamese restaurant and get a bowl. Right meow.  

Anyway, it's getting very close to Halloween. I must admit it's the only day that society accepts women to dress up like skanks. I did go Halloween costume shopping but unfortunately left the store with nothing. I am not going to pay $80 for a tiny piece of fabric barely covering my privates. So I might as well put my old costumes to use again and go downtown in my Sailor Moon costume. I must say my costume is very short and you can't avoid seeing my granny panties if I bend over for some reason. But this is the only time of the year I feel "sexy" and can dress like a skank in public. I've seen worse... Ahh the memories I've made with that costume. A picture to share with my sidekicks; Carebear and Ninja lady.

Yeah it's a messy apartment but as much as you clean it, the faster it gets messier. I was with a few friends discussing what our costumes should be this Halloween. One of my friends suggested someone should be Steve Jobs for Halloween. Oh hell no, it's way too soon to impersonate Steve Jobs. Oh yeah and everyone Facebook keeps posting their status as..

 "20 years ago, we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs.... Today we have no Jobs, no Cash and no hope."

I must say, it is true after all. 

So last night, I spoke to a highschool classmate for the first time. I've been out of highschool for 3 years now and have lost contact with most of my closest friends. Everyone grows up, moves out to college and have their own lives. He wanted to know what movies I thought he should watch. I suggested "I Love You Beth Cooper" with Hayden Panettiere. All I can say is that movie makes my heart melt. The soundtrack is perfect and if you were like me, and felt like your life would be ordinary after highschool, this would be the movie for you. Idk, I just found a great connection with the movie. It is a chick-flick after all. 

Anyway, as of right now, I'm craving watermelon or some cantaloupe. I went home with my boyfriend over the summer to his parents' home, and his mom served us watermelon. His mom told me to help her finish the watermelon because the boys hate watermelons. My boyfriend then told me he hates not just watermelons, but cantaloupe and honeydew as well. How weird, who can hate the best refreshing fruit?! And my best friend hates bananas! She says just the smell of bananas makes her queasy. I guess everyone has their picks huh. I'm pretty picky when it comes to food.

Anyway, thanks for reading my blog and my babbling about nothing and everything. I'm gonna try to get up and be productive! :)  More to come tomorrow so come back and visit!

Sweetest Day

So who knows all about Sweetest Day? I certainly didn't. as well as all the other holidays. Like Hump Day or Be A Pirate Day. The only reason I knew about it was through friends posting up pictures of their gifts received from their significant other on Facebook. Aww isn't that sweet? I guess. Now i'm starting wonder if my boyfriend might do the same for me... Sigh if only he knew. It's okay, Doesn't count if you didn't know about it.

Happy Sweetest Day all! Go tell your loved ones how much you love them!
