Well besides waking up late after last night’s event…
I went to my first college football game with Amanda, Monica, and Kyle and even though everyone thought the chances of UCLA beating CAL was close to zero… WE WON!! And we didn’t just “win,” we pretty much OWNED! (Sorry CAL kids, but you’ve guys had enough victories so no need to feel bitter)
I even got to be a part of the card show (where you flip cards of different colors to produce images in the stands). The whole time the people around me and I were just scrambling to find the right colors saying, “how did I get into UCLA…?” But seeing it on the big screen was seriously the coolest thing ever (: During the 4th quarter, I also took part in the flash mob (which we seriously just learned on the bus ride there). Man, UCLA kids are so organized with these things.
I won’t go into details about my night. I’ll just say that I LOVE MY ACA FAMILY, especially my dad (LINS!) <3 And, Cat and Josh got their asses kicked (:
Now time to write an essay about Korean dramas and study for my midterm this Wednesday. Oh, and casting tomorrow! Shit…
And I pretty much finished moving into my new dorm, so come visit me! (:
I really wished I could accompany you to your last trip to China. That way I could have kept my promise, and bid you a final farewell. But I’m happy that you’re ending up where you hoped for all your life. Hopefully you’ll look after us all, and remember that you’ll always be in our hearts <3
We lose them in death, petty fights, distance and over time. But even though they may be lost, hope is not. The key is to keep them in your heart, and when the time is right, you can pick up the friendship right where you left off.
Even the lost find their way home when you leave the light on.
When I get old, I hope you understand ‘n have patience with me In case I break the plate, or spill soup on the table because I’m losing my eyesight, I hope you don’t yell at me. Older people are sensitive, always having self pity when you yell. When my hearing gets worse ‘n I can’t hear what you’re saying, I hope you don’t call me ‘Deaf!’ Please repeat what you said or write it down.
I’m sorry, my child. I’m getting older. When my knees get weaker, I hope you have the patience to help me get up. Like how I used to help you while you were little, learning how to walk. Please bear with me, when I keep repeating myself like a broken record, I hope you just keep listening to me.
Please don’t make fun of me, or get sick of listening to me. Do you remember when you were little ‘n you wanted a ballon? You repeated yourself over ‘n over until you get what you wanted. Please also pardon my smell. I smell like an old person. Please don’t force me to shower. My body is weak. Old people get sick easily when they’re cold. I hope I don’t gross you out. Do you remember when you were little? I used to chase you around because you didn’t want to shower. I hope you can be patient with me when I’m always cranky. It’s all part of getting old. You’ll understand when you’re older. 'n if you have spare time, I hope we can talk even for a few minutes. I’m always all by myself all the time, ‘n have no one to talk to. I know you’re busy with work. Even if you’re not interested in my stories, please have time for me. Do you remember when you were little? I used to listen to your stories about your teddy bear.
When the time comes, ‘n I get ill ‘n bedridden, I hope you have the patience to take care of me. I’m sorry if I accidentally wet the bed or make a mess. I hope you have the patience to take care of me during the last few moments of my life. I’m not going to last much longer, anyway.
When the time of my death comes, I hope you hold my hand ‘n give me strength to face death. ‘n don’t worry.. When I finally meet our creator, I will whisper in his ear to bless you. Because you loved your Mom ‘n Dad.
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
