||Thursday - Dying in New Brunswick
HEY! I'm updating this thing! Yeah...I'm pretty bored, so I guess I'll write about today's events and thoughts.
Isn't that what journals are for?
Well today was an ok day. Woke up at about 10:00 and laid around waiting for people to get off the phone so I could call my little chomper. She's fun. =D After that, I headed into the shower to wake myself up. I thought about a lot of things standing there with water massaging my neck. Lately, I think I've been worrying the most about college and all that. Still no reply from UCSD, and I'm guessing that I'm not going to get in over there. I don't really want to go there, but it feels good to be wanted and it sucks to be rejected. Same as everything else. Now all I can do is hope that someone over at the offices of admissions at Berkeley, Mckenna, USC, Chicago, and Cornell will make a mistake and admit me. Yeah...there's my college situation.
Anyways, got out of the shower and headed downstairs to eat a little something and catch up on the news. I never really watched the news regularly. But now with all this Iraq bullshit, I try to keep up with whats going on in the world because things are getting pretty messed up and they're probably just gonna get worse. I really don't think Saddam Hussein is the problem and I don't think getting rid of him and his regime will solve that much in the growing conflict between Islam and America. As long as we have our noses stuck into the Middle East's business because of our reliance on their oil, I don't think things are going to get better. Maybe instead of invading, bombing, and conquering another country, we need to take a good look at ourselves and all the problems we have here in America. Improving ourselves will improve things for the rest of the world. War won't.
I know I'm being being pretty damn hypocritical when I talk about not relying on and trying to control the world when I myself live off of all that the world provides for us here in America. But I guess thats just a result of being part of a hypocritical society.
Ok, enough of that. I had Round Table Pizza for lunch with my dad, Stephanie, Andrew, and Mimi. Muy sabroso. Chicken and Garlic Pizza is the best in the west man. At lunch, my sister got a massive hong bau that my dad brought back from my grandma in Taiwan. She deserves it...she got into USC Film School. Only 15 people from the whole nation get in and she's one of them. I guess she felt bad because I didn't get any money for just getting into UCI and UCSB so far, so she wanted to give me 100 bucks. After a few minutes of arguing with her because I didn't want to take her money, I finally took it. Damn I feel bad...I need to get a job and I hope I get into at least one of the rest of the damn colleges I applied to. Shit.
Well after that, I came home and just sat around and watched Andrew and Stephanie play with my sis' dog Casey and my dad's dog Shakira. Yep...my dad named his chihuahua Shakira. Pretty cool eh? Haha...anyways Andrew and Co. left, and I spent the rest of the afternoon practicing drums. Eddie came over later and we hung out, and then my mom cooked dinner and we haucphed. Watched a little bit of the Oscars then came upstairs to do some homework and write in this stinkin' journal =D I think thats about it for now. Wow I wrote a lot. Cool. See ya later Blurty.
