i found a new hobby! tennis! :)
one small problem that needs a solution a.s.a.p : i need a hobby buddy. my friend who played with me today probably won't be asking me to play again (because i'm just like sooo good :P ) so i need to find a new friend until spring when the undergrad school offers classes. do you think classified ads will work? hm..
it was the first time i held a tennis raquet in eleven years. how silly i felt at the court today.
thought of the day : am i enjoying life too much as a med student? so i have been wondering.
okay, water's boiling. need some tea with caffeine and antioxidants for another date with my syllabus. ta ta!

i found a new hobby! tennis! :)
my laptop feels too hot on my laps.

wow... i have wireless in my room. i'm on my bed about to write a journal for the first time in a month and thought, hmmmm, i wonder if i have any reception here.
is this bad that i'm picking up random signals? i mean, i do have a cable modem. it's just that the wire doesn't reach to my bed! it's like how we have free cable tv. apparently last year, my roommate, the honest God-fearing woman that she is, found out that she has cable tv without any bills from the company, went to a branch office to return the cable box from the previous tenants. but when she returned home, our tv was still picking up cable channels including showtime and hbo.
now you know why we decided not to move ... ;) apart from free parking and a walking distance to school. maybe i shouldn't move away for my third and fourth year.
i need to upload pictures from my camera. sorry to those i said i would share the pictures!! ah, the first weekend of my second year in school. so far, i've been quite happy and chipper. i think my classmates have picked up on that.
'tis a boring entry. go visit others for tonight :) good night!

12 years ago, my dad told me over dinner that he had passed on his oldsmobile to his colleague at work who'll take my dad's position as he'll be transferred to jakarta. he didn't expect me to stop eating in surprise and sadness and say "but i didn't even say good bye!" i don't think i ate dinner that night. i really wanted to give my car seat a good rub and thank it for the comfortable ride over the past five years.
i tend to get melodramatic when it comes to parting. especially when i've become attached to you... or to it.
today was my last day at work. my intention to leave work hours early didn't really come to fruition but i was all smiles from the morning. not from the idea of 'no more work!' (au contraire, my friend) but out of contentment. 8 weeks passed by faster than the ny express train and it's hard for me to leave now. but at least this time around i could give my work seat a good rub and say a proper adieu.
it's pouring out and i need to pack. from the subway station, i couldn't bear to continue walking so i stopped by tasti*dlite for the last cup of vanilla and chocolate pudding. for those of you who know exactly where i live.. yes, i stopped 20 steps short of my apartment for a sweet fix ;) sometimes it's good to take things slow.
Thank you and Good bye.

if you were taking a multiple choice test and had to pick the person who was at the beach all day "tanning," which person would you pick?
c'mon, be honest...
yeah, now you understand my problem (in addition to freckles...:T)

happy monday... ?
i had a rought start. for one, i woke up in the morning questioning what day today was. after a few seconds of orienting myself, my life and such, i realize that it's monday and the reason why the world looked very clear is because i fell asleep with my contacts in. with their aid, i could read the time so clearly as 9:15. *sigh*
plus i walked out in these new shoes for work and they are killing my feet. it's a rainy day as well. at the office, the window cleaner decided to jump in through the window for some reason and spilled his bucket of soap water all over the carpet and my bag. i didn't mind this until 10 minutes when it hit me that he hasn't said sorry.
but all in all, it's okay. the meeting that i was unprepared for at 1pm is actually at 3.
had a great weekend but a little too much people-time for a homebody like me. that's probably why i just crashed on the carpet last night after dinner and woke up this morning so frazzled. i SO need some quality amy-time.

Happy Friday everyone!
haven't done this in awhile.. maybe since the days i use to work? maybe my memories failing? i had to turn on the computer because i remembered in my half asleep state that i signed up to see some surgery and i forgot about it until a dream haunted me to wake up. anyways, it's a drop by/leave anytime deal so i had some extra time. okay gotta brush my teeth now :) good day!

sometimes i wish to be disciplined enough to make scrapbooks at each chapter of her life. hm, something to consider.
@cafe lalo's tonight. dessert looks scrumptious, no? but they left me feeling a little sick afterwards.
count down has begun. 17 more days until school begins..... :(
the thing about blogging for me: when i miss that perfect moment to blog, i lose the whole momentum to do so later on regardless of how many times i remind myself to do it. so, all the blog-worthy stories from last week, from the african acapella concert and the ballet at lincoln center, to the story of the cute boy who introduced himself to me, and the recount of my visit to maryland by chinatown bus which oddly reminded me of the vietnam war and the day US military withdrew... all these will stay as that.

this is too much. the whole day, my mind is some place i can't locate, my eyes keep looking at the clear sky outside and an american flag hanging from a building. (but my thoughts are far from patriotic...)
yesterday, i walked on the famous brooklyn bridge, tip-toeing my way across because the heels kept getting caught between the wooden boards in the walkway. the little i saw of brooklyn, i said it reminded me of nj ten years ago and offended a new yorker *ahem*
such a long day. *sigh*
much to tell about last week and the present. perhaps later tonight?

"i've been pretty stressed ......... b/c i don't understand what i'm reading and just trying to get a rec from [someone] who doesn't even know my name is tough on the mind..."
i hear ya, pal. good thing i don't need to think about those right now.
