"I Want A Beat that Changes Every Minute" -MIA

my life is so BORING right now! i absolutely hate junior yr. Why is life like this?! Besides school i have 3 tutoring lessons in a row from friday through sunday. so yea, no more free sundays which is a bummer! But this year i'm been trying to be as active as possible with my interests, so i joined 5 different clubs. Annnd i'm so glad i did. i was part of a Global Warming Awareness Club and to raise money and awareness, we hosted our school's first ever Band Night and it went awesome! i was super suprised by my classmate's talents! i'd say, its just as good as going to a concert. We had a double stage set up where one stage would perform while the other prepared. & guess who's idea was it?! MINE. Although when it was a group's turn, some bands did end up taking a while to set up. It would have taken much longer without this setup though. And the crowd flowed from one end of the room to the other..it was great! We raised over $800 and it was a huge sucess. We'll organize another one once spring whips around.

i know i've been MIA but i just want you guys to know that i will never stop blogging even by the time i'm 80, cause i just love it too much! You guys keep me young...even though i'm only 17. haha well, have a good one! and talk to you (who ever you are) real soon :] And i gotta figure out some shit to do to spice up my life!

Trick? or Treat?

October has come and gone! Is it just me or did it go by super SUPER fast. & Halloween isn't getting as much hype as it used to. darn. this really makes me miss childhood. but i still had so much fun going out trick-or-treating with my friends around the neighborhood...anddd i'm 17..i wonder how long i'm gonna keep doing this lol.

So...my friends and i went to this house and the guy openS the door. he seemed kinda ...suprised to see us.. he leaves us at the door, goes to a closet, and comes out with a trick-or-treat bag with candy in it... He digs through, and in his hands, there's candy (normal)and then, we see the candy wrappers........he picks out the wrappers and says with a nervous enthusiasm, "anyone want a snickers!?" my friends and i look at each other like wtf! and say "it's ok..." then we speed walk outta there asap! i feel bad for that man. THE END.
Well, anyway my friends didn't dress up this year but 2 years ago my friend didn't have a costume so with some brainstorming, i came up with an awesome idea! Jess and i made this rubiks cube that victoria's wearing. isn't it great?! we shoulda jumbled up the colors though.

Sorry for that month long break (which is a year in blogger years) but anyway! It’s good to be back. I missed you guys!! Since the coming back from Taiwan, it’s been so hectic! It’s already been a month of high school and let me tell you. Junior year ain’t fun. There’s loads of work! And to add on to the load, I have 2 SAT tutors and Princeton Review classes every Sunday. Which means no more free Sundays!! WHY must you do this to mee?? I already have so much stress! Well at least my younger brother has to suffer with me. MUAHAHA. But seriously, my parents have robbed me of my leisure time. I barely have time to hang out with my friends! But I know that I’m not alone: my friends are busy too. Let’s not talk about work anymore. It’s kinda depressing just thinking about it. So let’s divert to something different.
aha this is julien dressed for his performance.
they are always sleeping!OCAC was by far the BEST experience I’ve ever had. That’s the one thing my friend who had previously gone there, was right about. Isolated from my parents I felt so free from authority. And this environment was just what I needed. I loved that it was an international camp where people who were interested in learning Chinese could come or…their parents make them. Of course that’s not everyone’s priority. Yes, people go there just to have lots of fun too, but I was also pretty interested in improving my Chinese since I’ve been struggling in Mandarin class last year. And making friends was a piece of cake! I practically made new ones everyday! Everyone was soo friendly and even though ages ranged from 14 to 18, age didn’t divide us or make us different. We treated each other the same. We, were friends. Back home I hated how my parents thought I was weird for having friends a year younger than me. It made me so mad! Don’t be age...-ist! But anyway people here were great not like in America. No offense but I feel like we, Americans, judge too much from the way others look and dress and even age! It’s really wrong but that’s a part of our lifestyle. Even though about half are from America the whole friendly environment of it made people not judge, I guess. I don’t know how to explain it but I didn’t meet anyone I hated! Although, there is this one person…but that’s cause she acted fake. And there’s really no reason to! Anyway, I made the greatest friends from all over the world! There were kids from Thailand, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, England, and even Guatemala! It was so sad to leave them but I will definitely visit and keep in touch with them. If you can, do something international with lots of people, you’ll meet the greatest most interesting people, I promise ;]
