phew pt2

Firstly, I’ll put some additional likes and dislikes, this time a little more quirky…

I dislike when an auto-toilet flushes when you are still on the seat.

I like walking out into cold air after a hot shower.

I like it when people (girls) wear boots.

I like watching sad commercials.

I dislike rushing to class.

I like playing guitar.

I dislike bugs.

I like pies.

So I thought I would really have a lot more things to remember since last post. Oh well. I didn’t even realize that it looked kind of stagger-y until now.

Anyhoo, a lot has happened in just a few months at school. I have the most sweet and beautiful girl by my side and I’m still having an engaging (for the most part) time during class. Although, I can’t even remember the last time I went running or done anything active in general, but hopefully I can get back into shape. I’ve just been eating a lot and watching Youtube a lot and not being as productive as I want. Hmm… I’m guessing there are other people in the same boat as me.

In other news… my brother and his wife are expecting!!!!! (yes, a baby). I’m so excited to see a new generation of my family pop into this world, and it’s really made me think of just how lucky I am to be here at all. I mean, we’re only here for a couple years, and I’m pretty sure I waste a good deal of it on nothing at all. Whether its the internet, food, games, or sleep, I just feel kind of guilty that I’m not making the most of it. What bothers me most are the arguments or grudges I  hold just because of a few differences in opinion. For serious. My own pettiness will seem so insignificant when I look back at my life in the future. Anyway, I just feel blessed that I’m going to be an uncle soon and I don’t want these flaws to rub off on my nephew/niece; I just really want him/her to wake up with a bold, loving attitude every single day.

And that’s how the cookie crumbles.

Toodles.

phew

So I haven’t had a chance to update in a while due to not wanting to, though I would like to say that its because I’ve had no time. Anyway, life is good. Move-in was not stressful at all, classes are thankfully interesting, and the freshmen are delightfully excited for anything.

I really don’t have anything else to say (I’m super boring) so I’ll make a list of the small things I like (and dislike):

1. I like genuine people

2. I dislike adults who act like children

3. I dislike children who act like adults

4. I like waking up really early in the summer, just so I can enjoy the cold, crisp, renewing air

5. I like trying outrageous foods without any thought to consequences

6. I dislike being praised for things I do well

7. I dislike creepy, pushy, or elitist people

8. I like to laugh at creepy, pushy, or elitist people

9. I like to sacrifice for my friends

10. I like the feeling of getting into a really hot car knowing that the A/C will come on soon

11. I like running until my whole body gives out

12. I dislike having to think about what to eat everyday

13. I dislike missing people

14. I like wasting away the night with tennis, monopoly, or food in good company

15. I like the smell of my sweat after good physical activity

16. I dislike people who don’t appreciate life’s worth

That’s all I can care to think about for now, doesn’t feel as satisfying as I imagined. Hmm. Maybe next time then.

Some pictures I wanted to post. I took some of them, but not all of them.

ENJOY

Beautiful. Some of you will love this. You know who you are.

shaved head chronicles

This is going to be short.

So I can’t get over the fact that I did not have the balls to shave my head earlier in my life (say, in high school). My hair has been an issue to me for such a long time. The way it falls on my neck, the way I feel it in my eyes, the way I have to wait freakishly long for it to air dry- the list goes on. I don’t know if this is an issue for other people, but it has been bothering me to the point of insanity. I guess I was scared of what people might think of bald head, but now I believe that how I feel is more important than what others think. Oh, it feels great by the way, and I am not going to grow it out anytime soon. Sure, I’ve gotten stares and everything, but so be it. It’s so liberating and I can’t stop rubbing my head because that prickly sensation is really satisfying. It feels like I’m petting a friendly cactus.

Anyway, I’m not putting up a picture of my glorious Krillin head (boohoo) because I actually don’t have a camera, so I’ll put up something else instead:

I’m not even going to begin to try to make sense of why I’m putting that there. I guess I feel like I’m funny.

On a different note, I kept watching the ABC show What Would You Do? on Hulu this weekend and I ended up watching all the seasons available. The show is basically a hidden camera show that presents a tricky situation (racism, abuse, stigma, etc) and sees how the average person reacts to that. For instance, if you saw a store clerk refusing service to and calling a woman a terrorist just because she is Muslim, would you do something about it? Well, some of the other scenarios were stupid, but there were a lot that really struck a chord with me. I hear way too many people saying “don’t get involved” or “it’s not my business” or something of the sort when they see or hear something wrong. I have to admit that this has been my attitude at times, and I feel really guilty about being nonchalant toward things that really matter. Sure, the situation might be too dangerous or maybe I just don’t have the time, but looking the other way is really just me letting it continue- it’s basically like I’m encouraging it. People need to grow up and fight for what is right in the world instead of just letting “someone else do it”. Anyway, I was amazed (for good or bad) at some of the peoples’ reactions. Please, at least watch one of the clips to know what I’m talking about: http://www.hulu.com/what-would-you-do .

I lied about this being short, kind of. Hope you can forgive me.
