a final exam tmrw

i have one final exam tmrw.  it’s one of those tests i just wanna get over with.  i studied for the midterm a lot for this class, but didn’t get the grade i wanted.  i currently have a 94% in the class, but the final could bring me down to a B depending on how well i do on it.  i’ve been overthinking it a lot tho.  i think as long as i stay relaxed and grounded during the test that i should be okay.


last week of classes

it’s the last week of classes, and i’m sitting through the last session of my most boring class of all quarter.  why’s it boring?  it doesn’t allow for very much open discussion of the texts we’re supposed to be reading.  bright side is, my mom and dog will be coming to visit me afterwards.

on another note, i have a lot to look forward to this winter break!  my brother has invited me to go on a sibling trip with him, so we’re narrowing down our destinations right now.  i’m excited and flattered!  we haven’t gone on a sibling trip since we went to china almost 20 years ago, and a lot of time has passed since then.

in terms of school, i’ve finished most of my final projects and can focus on my final exam.  then i’m free for break; i hope i don’t get too used to relaxing over break that it makes it hard to adjust to school life.  senioritis strikes.






what is life

i’ve been low key freaking out lately.  are the people around me even real?  is this “world” i’m living in real?  or is it all just one big simulation.  what is life?  what is existence?  i’m so confused.  i’ve been watching rick and morty, which is making me question time travel, alternate universes, parallel realities, etc.

what if everyone around me is a fake robot or fake challenges.  what’s the point of that?!

i thought i lost my wallet!

oh my goodness.  so i wear true religion jeans sometimes, but the back pockets are so small, and that’s where i keep my wallet most of the time.  the pockets happen to be just the right size, so that it squeezes the wallet out of the pocket.  i reached for my wallet and noticed it wasn’t there.  i had lost it!   i went to the bathroom where i was before to find it..it wasn’t there.  i frantically check the floor and ask everyone in the bathroom if they had seen my wallet or where someone would have turned my wallet in if they found it.  nobody had seen it or knew where someone who did see it would turn it in.

fortunately i went back into the classroom and found it on the seat i sat in.  phew.  thank god for that one.

vegetarian no longer

i became a vegetarian around the start of summer in june, and i lasted until last week.  it was too tempting over the thanksgiving to pass up all the good food my family was eating, so i got lax about it.  and now i just plain give up.  i know being vegetarian/vegan is the right way to go, but it’s hard to do it when everyone around you is eating meat, and you feel left out or restricted.

thanksgiving was so great!

it’s always nice having my brother home for the holidays.  looking forward to his christmas visit already!  i’m including some pictures below of our time together over thanksgiving; you can find more on my facebook page.  the highlight for mewas definitely our 3.5 hour dinner at the 3-michelin star restaurant “the restaurant at meadowood.”  it included 15 different courses and a thorough explanation of each course.  time to start shopping for christmas gifts now!
