I’m watching you

 

Cards I won while playing Apples with Apples at a church friend’s house. I like my cards! 😀

 

I bought a canopy that can prevent mosquitoes from biting me. Unfortunately it’s a bit uncomfortable than it looks. I feel like an insect stuck in a silky web.

Fighting boredom

I was complaining to Harry about how bored I was…and so he asked me, “So what are you going to do about it?” And I thought huh…wow…that’s a great question! I need to do something productive other than shopping or you tubing. I want to do something that’s fun and doesn’t cost a lot of money…but there’s no such thing unless I can amuse myself by just staring at the mirror and talking to myself. Texas is too hot to enjoy nature and exercise and such. That’s the only thing I can for free that’s productive. If anyone can think of something else please inform me.

So here’s a list of things I would be interested in doing:

1) Join a hip-hop class. Yep! I finally will learn how to dance like a normal person…yay! And good exercise. I feel so fat just sitting in front of my computer all day so hopefully this’ll be a good change. And the price isn’t bad as well…64 dollars for a year. One class per week.

2) Play the cello again. I just need to buy a bow since my old bow became infested with moth eggs (shudder). Bow will cost probably 30-70 dollars? Depending on how light and comfortable I want it to be.

3) Cook? I ended up losing my passion for cooking this past year cus nobody in my family eats what I cook and it ends up being thrown away :(. I do wanna try to make gumbo….for some strange reason.

But gumbo requires that I get a dutch oven…and they’re actually pretty darn expensive. :T Maybe I can bake something?

4) Buy a wii game and play it? I just don’t know yet which wii game I’d like to play.

 

Boredom

Now that I’m done with secondary applications (or at least the ones I have so far)…i’m realllllyyyy bored. Whenever I’m bored, I’m struck by how I have no social life here in Texas….and then I sulk. I am thankful for the friends I have made at church. But I miss the closeness I had with the people in college…i could just barge into someone’s room and chill with them if I wanted to. I talked about it with my coworker today and she said she felt the same way. My coworkers have been a blessing…Idk what i’d do if I was the only technician and I had no one to talk to at work. Recently, we’ve been talking about the Colorado shooting. My coworker also shared that there’s been a murder in her hometown…first one in ten years she says. At these moments I want to share my thoughts about the hope that is in Christ…but I know how they feel about Christians. She says many southern Christians are like the women portrayed in the tv show GCB (Good Christian Bitches)…I can’t help but feel a little twinge of sadness…to think that they see Christ through different people. I have been a little hesitant to bring up Christianity to my coworkers ever since one of the girls shared that she feels pressured to believe. Previously, she would ask me and my other coworker about Christianity…and sometimes we would get into friendly debates. I guess she felt uncomfortable. I realized it’s not about giving the right answers…it’s about touching their need for love and faith. I wasn’t being pushy or belligerent in the arguments though….ah well can’t blame myself can only hope God can move their hearts.

So here I am rambling in my blog cus I am bored. I am too broke to even distract myself with makeup or clothes. I realized how materialistic I’ve become since I moved back to Dallas. Recently, our praise team (who came from Oregon) were talking about how different the culture is in Dallas compared to Portland…how people here seem more materialistic (hopefully not in a mean way). But yeah you know why we are?? Cus we’re so freaking bored~ it’s hot in Texas and there’s nothing else to do except shop.

Maybe I can better spend my time reading a book…I am thinking of reading The Reason for God…but I couldn’t find it in my local barnes and noble. I’ll get around to buying it sometime soon hopefully.

Aaah doesn’t help that I’m bored and I’m antsy about my medical school applications. My application was transmitted to schools in July 6th…so it’s still early for me right??? Hopefully they just haven’t gotten around to reading my application yet……

 

I’m back!

Sorry for being away so long! I guess I’ve been busy traveling and finishing my medical school application. I turned in my Texas application last week and the amcas application today. Hopefully I’ll hear from at least a couple of schools?? >.<. If not my plan is to take next year starting in January to study for the MCAT again. But for now I’m going to enjoy a week where I can do anything I can possibly want during my free time! Post blogs here, watch youtube videos, try new recipes, and read the Bible more.

I guess it’s really exciting to think I’ll possibly get to be somewhere else next year. Cat recently asked me how I was getting along with the family…and I realized huh…I haven’t that area of my life much thought. But honestly I can’t wait to get out of my parent’s house…I miss having my own apartment. And I don’t exactly have a happy relationship with my dad. He gets on my nerves like crazy. I do appreciate my family though and the ways they’re supporting right now. I do need prayer for my heart cus dealing with my family and dealing with my working environment has made me a very angry person. I catch myself thinking really bad thoughts and being enraged when I am slighted just a little bit. And these are the emotional burdens God freed me from when I committed my life to Christ. Guess I need to also have a better prayer life.

Work has been all right this month…but since my coworker will be gone two weeks for Korea…I’ll working by myself with my two bosses O.O. Just the thought of it gives me a stomachache…God please allow me to pass those two weeks without too much stress!

I went to California two weeks ago to see Harry. Some of the guys from Emory actually were vacationing in Cali the same week so I told Harry to arrange for them to meet him without telling them I was coming. I was planning on surprising the guys. I was thinking of so many ideas…jump out of the trunk of Harry’s car…wait in the bathtub and have ketchup squirted all over me with my hair down…(like a ghost with blood all over??). But in the end I just hid in the restroom and ended up surprising a guy who barged in. We went to Balboa beach, Japanese village, and Universal Studios. They made everything a 3D ride at Universal…it’s not as fun. Plus they only had a couple of roller coasters :T.  Or maybe as I get older universal studios isn’t as fun?

Aw I was hoping to post some pictures here but my phone is being retarded and won’t send my pictures to my computer.

Random beauty thoughts: I am currently getting more acne than I usually do. I’ve been so proud of my clear face since my graduation from college. I thought the Aveeno face moisturizer and the Purity face cleanser were amazing at keeping my skin flawless! It might be because I’ve been trying new makeup and I’ve tried washing my face with sandalwood. I heard it helps with blemishes and the redness caused by acne scars. I don’t know what’s exactly causing my skin to breakout but my face hasn’t felt moisturized even after I put the moisturizer on. So I decided to get a different moisturizer from Kiehl’s called ultra facial cream. I tried their avacado eye cream and it felt amazing on my under eyes without migrating to my eyes and irritating it. So I have high hopes for this purchase.
