YEA!!! im so giddy. yea so today was basically wake, glamour shots, eat, mahjong, watch tv. OH YEA! tomm imma gonna spend more money, gifts gifts gifts!

but ok, some randomness:

-Piper Perabo annoyes the crap out of me in Coyote Ugly

-Howard has been in the shower for a long time...

-Trip to Taiwan = lots of food and weight gain

-Speaking of which...the five hours i spent taking glamour shots has been the longest that I have gone without eating in the past week, not counting time spent sleeping. too much food.

-I should stop biting my nails. Its a bad habit.

-Today, I was Derelict, a la Zoolander. Go glamour shots. har har.

-Stuff is cheap to buy here, but then you buy too much. I was broke when I got here, got money, and I will be broke when i leave.

-mmm....I'm having a blast here...but home....

merry christmas from taiwan! yes this is about 13 or 14 hours before all of you may be enjoying the day of christmas, but yea. this doesnt feel like christmas at all. no snow, no santa, nada. kinda sucks. yea i barely even remembered that today...well, yesterday technically, was christmas eve. hehe i "celebrated" by going to hsimen ding, one of the night markets here. glamour shots on thursday! and oogurt, cd's is bought for you. but sadness, no NET shirts that say NET like you wanted :(

hehe, setting up the appt for the glamour shots was amusing. it was me, catherine, howa, and my cousin. my cousin is from here with broken english, better than my mandarin. howard is pretty good in taiwanese, and catherine has decent taiwanese. and well...hahaha it was just really funny watching catherine and the sales lday go at it trying to figure stuff out. ppl would walk by and stare at us because catherine would talk so loud and the sales lady did too, and yea...highly amusing. hehehe. yea you had to be there...

oh and marge! we took apicture in the same spot you all did when you chris cc gill etc were at hsimen ding. how cool is that!?!?!?

im sick. not allergies any more i think, just sick. boooooo. but yea i hope y'all have a merry christmas or just happy holidays, happy birthday Jesus!

movies movies movies. taiwan tv has a lot of good us movie channels. my favorite so far is probably....sleepless in seattle. good film. and i saw the lord of the rings 2 with my cousin the other day. that was also good. taiwan theatres weird. but what did suck was when they characters would speak in english subtitles, only chinese. arg barg!

hello boys and girls. dang...i had something i wanted to blog about, but now i cannot remember. well that just isnt cool. back in taipei now, chillin at the grandpadres casa. i just got done playing some mah-jong. my grandma is a pimpstress in mah-jong, and she helped me while i subbed for her against her friends and my aunt. haha i lost some of her money. her friend is also a mah-jong pimpstress.

my cousins are chilling with me too. i just met one of them for the first time tonight. unfortunately my lack of good mandarin and total lack of taiwanese besides a few phrases dealing with eating...we cannot really talk. kinda sucks. i wonder how close i wil be to the majority of my cousins when i grow up cuz like...i cant communicate with half of them. yea das not so cool. i need to learn.\

oh yes, i remember what i wanted to say now, thanks to it coming onto tv. THANK GOD that the "Ketchup Song" hasnt hit the US...unless it has while ive been over here. fo real though, the Ketchup Song, by a group called Las Ketchup (im not lying here) is basically a 2002 version of the macarena...except A WHOLE HECKOVA LOT MORE ANNOYING. oh man its so bad. i hope you guys dont have to deal with this over in the state, cuz...its highly annoying. the dance to the song is so simple that its dumbnifying. see i dont even know if that was a word. thats how dumb the song is making me by simply watching it once. STEER CLEAR OF THE KETCHUP SONG.

ahem. so yeas, howard should be arriving in taipei tomm, and catherine yeh sent me an email saying she was here in taipei too! i had no idea. hehe i called her twice and well...its been tough trying to ask for her over the phone in my non-fluent mandarin, hehe. yea i'll try again tomm....later kids.

and im back! woohoo, its been way too long being offline. aiyo.

well since i last left you all, i went on a west coast tour of taiwan with my dads school to show some doctors from beijing around. the first night we picked them up and then went to this really nice hotel outside of taipei. i asked myself "am i in taipei or in europe", because the hotel and the surrounding areas all had european architecture. its was funky. the rooms were sweet too, complete with living, dining rooms, and a full kitchen. i went out for a walk and it was really nicxe and peaceful, and they had a large amount of christmas lights up. a laaaarge amount.

next day we hit up taichung, visited at high school and a grade school and other stuff. pretty much what i did all day wednesday and thursday was follow the group around and answer questions from other ppl about where i was from, what i was studying, how well my chinese or taiwanese was...yea fun times let me tell you. oh and the food that i was served was CRAZY. the things i was served, and ate out of respect, were weird. things of those shapes, colors, and textures do not appeal to me. thanfully they always served good fruit at the end of the meal. go asian pears and guava.

yea all the sites that we have been visiting are buddhist places, so they are like super extra nice. all the meals are pretty big, and haha, everytime we get off the bus at a new place, all of the ppl at the place line up on each side and sing this song and clap as we walk by. its like 80-some ppl, on each side, welcoming you. i dont know what to do when im walking through the procession. i either stare at the ground and laugh at how weird it is that a hundred ppl are welcoming us like this, or if im adventurous i'll look up at ppl and bow my head every so often.

oh yea, we visited Sun Moon Lake, that was pretty darn beautiful. it was like when i was in Lucern, Switzerland, we went to the top of this hotel and it overlookd a lake in the mountains. i love lakes in the mountains. they are f-ing pretty.

yesterday we were in tainan at another temple, and howa powa was able to join me. that was cool. hehe everyone was impressed with howa's taiwanese. good job howa, way to be. left for kaoshiung after that, etc etc. i dont think anything else was too exciting. and then we flew back to haulien last night, and i finally got to sleep in today at my dads apt. and now im at my dads office online....hurrah!

oh yes sadness however. pauline called me a few minutes ago...and we wont be able to meet up :(. tsunah leaves taipei on sunday morning, which is when i go back there, and tsunah comes back on monday, which is the day after i leave taipei :(. booooooo. dat sucks.

so yeup. so far my trip has been pretty much just me looking at random stuff. its been ok i guess. bus rides up mountains however suck. next week should be fun though, howa and i getting glamour shots in taipei. AWWWWW YEEEEAAAAA! ok well, im sure ill be back blogging later if i forgot anything...

ok ok ok, well, almost time to leave, but hey, theres always time for a blog. so my mom is trying to sell crepes now at the ice cream place. totally bad idea in my opinion, but that of course doesnt matter. but hey thats not the story. my mom was making crepes and trying to get ppl to try them out and taste them. so there were some ppl walking by, and my mom would stand there and be like , would you like to try a crepe? nothing bad. but then this one time she asked this girl "Would you like to try a piece of crepe?". and i froze. i was like "......are you kidding me....she did not just say that out loud...." . luckily however, i dont think ppl noticed, and even luckier, i dont think my mom ever used that specific phrase again. whew.

in other news...

-when the funk did howard get a xanga? that bastard never told me.

-its been 9 hours since i last ate at steak n shake, yet i feel as if i should eat because in my mind i will be going to bed soon, even though im really not for another 4 hours. well screw it, im hitting up the gas station before i go.

-im going to have my cell phone with me in taiwan, just for the sole purpose of being able to call my mom when i arrive in chicago. 99% sure it wont work in taiwan, but hey, you should all call and leave voicemails if so. yea thatll be cool.

-Susan - i bought a new hat (at abercrombie kids no less) so yea, i dont need my hat back right away.

-hit up the chatterbox thing to the left. lets get that new blog toy goin'

-well kids thats it. time for the JRL to make like a fetus and head out, y'all have a good 1 day without me signed on. i know i know it will be weird not seeing Thendxcrd on your buddy lists, but you can do it, i know you can.

well its 11:25 and its a half hour before my final. so what do i do? i blog! wahahah.

-oreo cookies are delicious, especially when dipped in milk. Everybody loves oreos dipped in milk, unless maybe if you are lactose intolerant. however, if you dont like oreos dipped and milk and are not lactose intolerant, you are not human.

-finals week is great for picking clothes to wear to class. Jon Lee's count: 3 days this week, 1 outfit for all 3 days. go hooded sweatshirts and cargo pants.

-oreos do however leave an abundant amount of chocolate cookie debris in your teeth and the sides of your mouth.

-i need to learn the correct way to work out the obliques, i dont think my lower back should be in such pain like it is right now.

-i will spend nearly two full days in an airplane during the next 2 weeks.

-i am seeing how fast/well i can grow out my facial hair. the mustache is coming in quickly, while my goatee area has baby fuzz then about 6 stalks of stickly hair. sideburns, well sad times for the sideburns area :(

-easiest finals ever, 1 on monday, 1 on tuesday. and thats it. and i could even be able to pull out a 4.0....

and im back! after a 24 hour hiatus from normal function of my computer i return. but you know what sucks? ill tell you now. i was copying my old hard drive to my new one. it was going to take 24 hours and like 15 minutes to do. so i let it run and dont use my comp. this afternoon at 5 it gets down to about 10 minutes and all looks well. i go back to watch tv, and when i come back, AN ERROR OCCURED. opasd;lasdkl;asdkasd. right right ok so at 99%, thats NINETY NINE PERCENT, the program had an error and made it worthless. after TWENTY FOUR HOURS, with only about FIVE minutes left to go, there was an error. and that made it a whole f-ing waste of time. worthless crap. so yea, no new hard drive yet. i cant belive it stopped at 99%.....blah.

so yea i didnt care about the new hard drive after that, i instead have deleted a bunch of things, and matt and i beat the new ghost recon in 1 day, good for us. and of course now that i am back, heres a new picture!!!

man...the music from the wonder years is so good. althought it makes me sad and i want to go back to junior high and be little all over again. i want to come home on the bus play football in seans backyard or basketball in jws driveway in the cool crisp fall weather. that was the life man. i had everything to look forward to. but hey thats life, growing up can blow. if only i would have known then how much id miss it. haha i sound like a yearbook. but for real, to be little, well not little, to be medium again. to be at the beginning of the teens and not at the end. blah. I WANT TO BE MEDIUM AGAIN.

on a lighter note my winamp playlist goes from Original Music From The Wonder Years to Outkast - Bombs Over Bagdahd. quite the sudden change let me tell you.

well today was an f-ing action packed and busy day. i got back from shopping around 830am, slept at 9, and then woke up at 1 from a call by steve. football football football! so yea i woke up and got dressed and headed out to play at 130. played for a few hours against some big guys. so i was tired when we got done around 330. got home about 10 minutes later, and i walked in and got a drink cuz i hadnt had anything all day since i just got up and left. so i sat down to enjoy my liquids and read the paper, but about 5 minutes went by and i finally was asked to work at the ice cream place. and to be there in 10 minutes. sooo yea. sweaty and grass-stained jon took now post-football shower and got dressed and left to go work. and i worked. it was f-ing busy, stupid mall. pretty constant flow of customers for the whole day into the night. and yea, we usually close at 9, but ppl kept coming and we didnt close until like 920. i was not happy. got out around 10 though, not bad.

went to nichos straight after that, still all nice and unclean, and i still hadnt eaten all day. hehe yes. but yea at nichos, we got our first nightly picture!!! hehe, nancy was looking at his cell phone. and you know how you can like enter your name onto your cell's main screen? like "Jonny Lee" or "Jon's Cell" etc? hehe well jenifer put this in...

ahahahahaha. ahahahahaha. haha yessss.......WHI-CHAAAA (thats supposed to be the sound of a heh heh...)

hehe ooook. jake brian and i left nichos and went to a party. lots of random kids, mainly class of 2000'ers, jake's class, and ajit was there. stood around outside in the bonfire etc etc. hehe i got probably the best picture of the night there. i was in an odd pose/position/possesion...hahah yea. if you really want to see it ask me. ended up at steak n shake awhile after that. elizabeth joined us there and faire du beth even came in with friends! buuut yea. after my "dinner" (hey only 1 meal today...) we went outside, and the pink elephant was in the next lot! so you know we HAD to get pictures. and there was a giant snowman in the opposite lot, and then the Lumberjack across the street! go Springfield, Illinois landmarks! Abe Lincold AND a Pink Elephant. beat that Anytown, USA.

yea jake must like that elephant. anyways, hung around steak n shake for awhile for traci, who never showed we came home. and im tiiired. maybe i will finally go to sleep before the sun rises. that would be a good thing i think......

when i first saw brian last friday, it was dark and i thought he was wearing a hoodie. but oh no, i was wrong, it was not a hood, but only his massive amount of hair. but yesterday brian got a haircut, not having gotten one in 4 months. good job brian. hehe and he has the exact same look on his face in each picture.


yes, this is what i do in the wee hours of the morning. make before and after pictures of brians hair.

yup yup. well tonight i went over to tilldos to hang out, played the new video game based on desert storm, the objective is to work your way through iraq and at the end assassinate saddam hussein. its interesting.....and pretty fun. did that for an hour or so, then brian ajit and i headed over to nichos. and jake came! and The Originals are once again 5/5ths strong! hurrah!!! ping ponged it up there. here is a picture of Zoe chasing the ping pong back and forth, something she likes to do quite often

aww look at Zoe go. she tires herself out let me tell you. nancy and mary were there as well, havent seen mary in forever. we talked about random stuff, hehe i was the only one from the class of 2001 actually, it was weird. class of 2000 was well represented by nicho, jake, ajit, mary, and nancy. but the class of 2001 is the best there ever was, is, or ever will be. true story.

headed over to adriennes after that. the usual crew was there, jenny courtney bobby katie and steve along with jon sadowski. sat around and talked, and of course played with adriennes cats. and to keep in the pet theme, here are adriennes cats!

aww how cute. adrienne made the scarf that they are being covered by. isnt she something? yea she is, whos a cool girl? oh its adrienne dawn cappelli. and now after that, i am home. thanksgiving is tomm...well actually its today. buuut yea, y'all have a good day and you bes stuff yoself at the dinna table.

my house is quiet. its about 6am and i havent slept yet. hey alright. well, a few hours ago i watched the latest Wonder Years episode i downloaded. then i check out my old cd collection and i decided to be productive and burn most of them onto my comp like ive always wanted to. and as i put them onto my comp i listen to them. haha first song was that sunscreen song. yall remember that? yea that was so sappy yet so tight. and you know what? the advice really is good, you really should do something that scares you everyday. pimp status.

yea so to keep going with the nostalgic theme, the forrest gump soundtrack and the wonder years soundtrack are some of the cds im burning. haha for some reason i got a strong sense of history from those cds/songs. and you know what? they still relate to whats going on today, 30 years later, were still all doing the same things. bad? i dunno? good? i dunno. who knows.

so yea im all nostalgic and happy now. my house is quiet. im all alone, just me, my computer, and my old cds. its pretty darn cool, and then i realized how UNBELIEVABLY F-ING lucky i am. right now, literally i have no worries. its jst right here, right now, being totally 100% free. and how tight is it that i can give thanks in a formal manner since thanksgiving is in a day? now normally ill go off on a rant of what im thnakful for, but after God, i dont know where the f i can start. i mean really? where can any of us comprehend everything that we are thankful for? so damn lucky is what we all are. do you really want to know how lucky i am right now? im burning Ace of Base onto my computer. yea i'm seeing a sign and im opening up my eyes, im seeing the sign. peace out kids, have a good break, and be thankful.

today i woke up around 130, feeling fully refreshed from my cold-like syptoms. then i got up and walked around and well, the sickness came back. blah.

i was able to get out of my house at least though and go over to steves for some fifa action. came back around 5 after good matches with brian and steve. later on tonight a bunch of us met up at Show-Me's to watch the monday night football game. funny side note story: When i was about 14, Show-Me's opened up here in town, and its basically a less popular Hooters. yea my mom took me there since we had no idea what it was. haha yea, i was basically at hooters with my mom. right. anyways. brian and i met steve, brian zeke, and mike montney there. steph and lori pulled up at the same time, and then nicho and jenifer came. now with my ability to post pictures, here is nicho mocking jenifer by playing with his hair and jenifer not looking to happy.

hahaha. yeas. you cant see it in the picture but i had a really good plate of wings, each one was 30 cents, not bad. i like them better than hooters wings too. plus Show-Me's has more tvs. more tvs for football is better. after our long stay, brian and i went back to steves to go play some more exciting fifa action. here is a snapshot in the middle of the tense action!

haha look how big both of their hair is. but yes, the joys that fifa brings. and the joys that picture on my blog bring. so happy :)

but i digress, tommorrow i must get a new car battery, as well as fix my sisters shower faucet. hey ill be productive! alright!

update from home:

mmhmm. back in good ole springfield now. so yea, last night i got back and unpacked, etc etc. hung around, then brian came over to toss the football around. brians hair is so big now...haha i thought he was wearing a hoodie when he got out of his car, but nope, just a big mass of curly hair. after a few minutes tossing the ball outside, we got cold and called nicho and jenifer. awww, nicho and jenifer. anyways, they came over, then we picked up matt and went to see The Barbershop. not a bad movie, not too great, but good for 2 bucks. went to perkins after that and ajit, kevin, and kelly howard came. and loli was working. yay for loli.

today i woke up at 315. yea thats not good. hehe. i dont have a clock in my room now since it is at school. so when i woke up i decided id guess what time it was everyday from now on, and i thought i would be pretty good at it. so my guess for this "morning" was 11:32. and it was 3:15. yea i was off....

didnt work today. so instead of "helping the family" out at the ice cream place, i gladly took it upon myself to do some laundry and clean the family room. my mom has way too many shoes. its terrible. went over to nichos around 7, played risk, hung around, the usual. watched finding forrester on hbo...yea it was a good night. nothing really exciting...but not bad nonetheless.

well hot diggity. last day before turkey break is upon me. well i still have yet to sleep, but yea it technically is. 1 more day before 9 days at home. yea home. so im excited to see all of my friends and hang out and bundle up in warm clothing, but at the same time....its going to blow major butt if i have to work a lot. its a given that i will probably spend all day saturday at work. and then oh God, help me on friday. screw you day after thanksgiving. its going to be so so busy. my mom better have extra help there. fiddlesticks.

this semester has flown by. i really dont know where all of the time has gone. after tomorrow we only have 1 week of class then the next week is finals. and then i think im hopefully going to Taiwan around the 15th. going to call it right now, big ass fight with my mom about that sometime this week. its unavoidable. although i could come back here. or just drive off. i really wish she knew how unreasonable and unbearing she can be. but she cant, cuz shes unreasonable. stupid catch-22 ish situation.

tkast has gotta stay here all break long. and his computer died last week. so poor tkast has gotta stay here all by himself with no computer for 9 days. luckily for him he'll be dead tired from all the bball practice. and he has his dvds. you go.

haha and in others news, i used the word "holla" in a non-mocking way for the first time tonight i believe. good for me. im becoming more cultured. what will i do for the first time tommorrow?!?! i guess you'll have to stay tuned and find out!

hehe im in CMIS right now and im typing up my blog while we are all having problems copying files from out server to disks. and billie joe is staring at me and laughing...anyways, if i only put in as much time into my school work as i did into fantasy, id be so good.

anyways, not much to blog about. rams beat the bears last night. sadtimes. (hmm i smell a comment from brian now...) but yea, if only that was last year, it would have been a great game. but now the bears faire du suck and the rams well...are fighting for a playoff spot. and thanksgiving break is coming up! 1 week off! woohoo! er...woot woot! but 1 week at home now means work work work at the ice cream place. crap. lksajdkljsklajlkadjaklsjdsalkj

yeas. well vice city is almost done. we need to beat it soon, hopefully tomm, so that it doesnt interfere with our studies more than it already has. hehe. so yea, today was friiiiiday. even though i know im technically posting this on saturday so the heading will be saturday....but oh well. so tonight i had the craving for fried chicken. yea i dont know why but i did, heh. hannah susan and i went to good ole KFC for dinner, and brandon and casey from praise & worship came by as well. potato wedges are so good. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm. oh yea, ill take a cue from peggy and give y'all a poll. ok ok so KFC changed its name from Kentucky Fried Chicken. hannah and susan say it is because "KFC" genetically engineers its chicken parts in labs, so calling it chicken would be false advertising. I heard it was because someone found a rat tail in some fries, and sued, so they had to change the name for some reason. or was it because the "Kentucky Fried" part was false advertising on its own? what do YOU think??? leave a comment.

oh sweetness yes, after that we went to walmart cuz like on tuesday i bought the Star Wars II dvd for 15 dollars (cuz walmart is pimp with new dvds) BUT i got the full screen version mistakingly. so yea i wanted the widescreen version and i went to exchange it. walmart is cool because A) they let me exchange it even though i had opened the dvd before i realized it was full screen, and B) they gave me FIVE dollars back. so the brand new star wars dvd was only TEN DOLLARS. dude. thats so good. im not even a huge star wars fan. but thats f-ing AWESOME. woohoo! or wait wait, andrea, woot woot! yea definitly happy after that. came back here and tyler and i proceeded to do dishes for an hour. yup, all of our dishes were dirty. every single one. all forks, bowls, plates, dirty. took fo-eva.

around 1130 beth came back with hannah susan and brandon and we hung out...and then, we played FOUR SQUARE!!! ahahaha. awwwwww grade school elementary days! luckily hannah still knew how to play since she worked at a daycare and then everyone started to remember all of the old rules and tricks. it was a darn good time man. but then we were apparently being loud, it was around 1230, and yea...hah ppl complained and we had to go in :( . but hey, we got a good amount of time in playing us some four sqaure. fooooshizzle. and that was my night. i hope you enjoyed my blog entry, i sure know i had a fantastic time typing this up for you. till next time, ta ta!

ok so a recap of jons sunday. woke up at 830. drove with 5 wheelchairs in my car for 40 minutes to the TPC where i gave my speech and led the youth group etc etc. that went well, but i left my folder there...hehe crap. ah well. service was good, yea it was. then we hung out, played some more wheelchair bball, hehe yea it was tough kinda. and then we went to lunch. and at lunch we went to taco bell. and the night before the Blues scored 6 goals. so that means 35 cent tacos!!!!! yea!!! hehe limit of 10 per customer. so yea i got 10. and i ate them ALL. go me. and i had 21 packs of fire sauce. yea it was hot hot hot. finally got home around 3, hung around, cleaned the bathroom. yea that was some good ole fun.

later on my mom called and said she and my aunt were coming down to pick me up for some food. we went to some new chinese place but i didnt like it so much, all the food seemed cold. blech. then on the way home my mom and i had our usualy fight. haha it was more funny though. like i got the feeling that my mom and her friend were on my side. hehe my mom called me, in my bad pin-ying, "mm-jah gi-nah", which means like bad or uneducated kid or something. then i called her "mmm-jah mama". haha and my aunt started laughing, but she had to like keep it quiet or my mom would have really gone off. hahaha. awww yea.

came back here and then yea....chocolate up the nose. blah.

hehe ok ok, so yea, that last entry sounded kind of, whiny or something. i dunno. anyways, heres something at least positive that i was thinking about tonight. while i was grumbling after my mom told me to do this and that, do you know how many people in this world would give almost anything for a job? and to own an ice cream place, yea it would be tough but like, 80% of the world couldnt afford to do this. and im complaining. isnt that sad? i mean yea it sucks...but it sucks sooooo much worse for many other people. sadly however, i usually forget that and just get angry again over the same stuff. ah the questions and dilemnas in life. id like to think i try to make the best of whats around. but yea. right now, here at cable tv. AHH!!! wait a second....yea see. yet another example. 80% of the world does not have cable (ok so im making guesses here, but i think they are really close and could even be underestimates) and i complain. but i want my sportscenter....what do i do???

home now. went straight to the ice cream place and it wasnt too bad. mom was really nice to me when i got there. then of course she yelled at me later. ah yes. my wonderful mom. my aunt is getting married though in la, hurrah for her! hehe her fiance was an one of the waiters from my moms old restaurant. aww, a lichee gardens marriage : ) .

yea so the wedding is jan 2nd in la. this puts an interesting spin on my taiwan plans. i could either go dec 15th to around the 1st and go to la on the 2nd then home, or i could go to la on the 2nd and then to taiwan from there till about the 11th. but then id be f-ing rushed to go back to start classes on the 13th. and my mom, being my mom, totally is against the idea of me going to taiwan because she needs me to work, even though this trip was planned way before she even considered opening up the ice cream place. but of course, even though i said opening would be a bad idea, she still expects me to be her slave and work for 4 straight weeks everyday. i feel no guilt and sorrow in saying SCREW THAT. yay.

my other aunt is here, shes nice. haha we had a quick little chat about how my mom rules with a short temper etc etc. its good to know that other people feel the same way i do. now if only some of them would tell her like i do....maybe she would listen to her older sister. she should anyways, since she tells me all the time to listen to my older sister. waha! caught in her own words. bet eh, probably not.

after work i went to see my dad. ive seen him for like 4 hours in the past 4 months. sadness :( . i missed my dad after i left his house, he had to go to bed cuz he was really tired and has a 10am flight tomm back to taiwan. but i should be able to hang with him in taiwan. if my mom ever changes. well actually that doesnt matter, im going if she likes it or not. i hope she doesnt get mad at all tomm..........hmm what am i saying, thats wishful thinking.

hmm. it seems as if my last entry got deleted. interesting....

well to sum it all up, jessica matt and i laughed uncontrollably for a good 10 minutes. jessica was losing her voice, said she was sounding like a man, matt did an impersanation of her voice, a la jim carey from in living color, jessica laughed, her cough drop flew out of her mouth and she almost drooled all over but her hand caught it, i pointed and laughed. you probably had to be there...and then we switched topics to matts away message. and heard it and i laughed a lot. it was yesterdays Quote of the Day, but it got erased...but anyways

Bravery is chancing a fart when you have diarrhea

ahahahahahah yea it was funny last night and it is still funny now. we laughed at that for a good while. and matt and i also made fun of jessicas "exhale laugh". haha yea.

in todays top story:

my head is killing me. lets hope the motrin i just took will help.

Praise the Lord! so uh, yea. no homework tonight, just visited abby and ashley over at their apt. haha they are fun girls, with all of their friends and roommates. They were watching The Bachelor on abc...and well yea, it was interesting, stupid since i dont think anyone can fall in love in 6 weeks and get married for a tv show, but yea, it reeled matt and i in. abby yelled at us if we talked, so yea we had too watch, heh.

The Lost Night

right ok. so beth calls us up and says she wants to go out to eat tonight with everyone. so beth hannah and susan come over around 7 or so and we hang around for a bit. tyler ends up coming back from bball at 8, so we wait for him, no prob. so we leave at 9, im driving, there are 6 people in the car. alright, we will just squeeze in then. im driving along and we dont know where we want to eat, either we go to fairview heights or trek into stl, either way we would be driving for at least 20 min. yes, remember that, 20 minutes. so ok, im pulling up to the split where you have to make a choice which way to go, straight to fariview or head to the highway for stl. hannah yells stl. our last minute decisions would become a reoccuring event in the car.

so im going to stl like usual, on 270, and beth suggests going to the Central West End district of stl for some nice food. sounds cool. but you know, we are all talking and i miss the quick exit for 255, which leads to I55. ok no biggie, i will just take a left south on a street after i cross the river. im driving down and well, its going into the ghetto. we drive for a pretty long time without seeing any ways to get on a highway, but finally, FINALLY, after i pull some uturns, and go through this crazy and highly scary Arc de Triumph-esque round-a-bout, we get on 70. hehe, 2 white guys, 3 white girls, and 1 asian guy in a car with an illinois license plate in the middle of the stl ghetto. hmm, i wonder if people could tell we were lost??? but yea, back on a major highway, hurrah! we head back east towards the river and the arch since well, i assumed we wanted to go that way and beth or no one else objected. so we are driving on 70, and then i see a quick exit and well, i dont remember much, but i take it. and then i see that i cant turn onto a street, so i go straight. and this led to a bridge. that went back over the mississippi. great. we ended up back in illinois. oasd;kdsalksdlkdas.

so i turn around, and we cant find out how to ge back right away. now remember that beth hannah susan and matt are all in the back seat with beth on sitting on top of them. quite illegal. buuuut yea, after seeing the most confusing and ridiculous group of highway interstate signs EVER...we get back on the highway back to stl. so all is good, and i cross the river for the 3rd time that night, and exit onto stadium street, next to Busch. now im thinking where beth wants to go is in downtown stl or something. but i was clearly wrong. we figured this out after driving aimlessly around for 10 minutes in downtown stl. ridiculous.

once it dawned upon us that noone knew where we were going, beth and matt figured out how to get to 55, since beth said 55 would take us to where we wanted to go. so im on 55. woohoo, its only been an hour of driving around. thats right. an hour. im flying down 55 and once again we are all talking and laughing, and um, dawns upon us that we dont really know where we are since we had been flying down 55 for a good 10-15 minutes. and then i see a sign for Lihndberg blvd. lihndberg blv?!?!? daheck?!?! we were WAAAY far southwest of the city. not good. not good since none of us had eaten and it was 10. crap on a stick.

after lihndberg i see the sign for I270. my eyes light up, cuz i know where 270 is. ohhh yea. so we get on 270. but then...i dont see a sign for 270 East. only 270 West. to Kansas City. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?! lkasjd;adlasdk;ldassd. so im freaking out thinking we are going even farther away, but then i notice a road sign saying 270N. ok ok ok, so im on 270 West and North at the same time. but then i remember that is correct, and that im close to the exit to go to the TPC. oh thank GOD. so i knew where we were. and we were f-ing far far away. we made a literal loop-dee-loop through saint louis. and we still had more to go. beth sees I44 east and we take that and eventually find out destination, the Central West End.

its a pretty cool place, lots of little restaurants and bistros on nice sidewalks, with Washington U close by, its like a rich collegey area. in the middle of it is a restaurant called Asian Grille. hey alright, its 1045, food! and its good food to! mmmm. we go in there and everyone really liked there meal. my korean bbq was cold though :( . but yea, good food, cool restaurant, i think we will go back there sometime. it reminded me of the ITASA retreat at northwestern last year, when a bunch of us went to that chinese place and grubbed for a good solid hour. roger and i finished everything then, this time tkast and i did.

hehe and i got ma po tofu...i asked for it like how my parents say it like "ma pu dofu", but yeam the waitress had no idea. but she was nice. good time, good time. after the meal we walked across the street to the "cartel", a coffee house that is hihgly popular among the gay community. and i was like "HEY! thats where cory always went last year!". it was carazy. i remembered him talking about it all the time. but yea, its not just a gay place like i thought, pretty much all mixed up. hannah and susan got ice cream, and then after that it was about 12, so we left.

and as fate would have it, i needed gas. and i got gas. and then i wasnt sure how to get back to the highway since we drove off looking for gas. so we took a right, and saw signs for the highway, but only to go west. and we do not want to go west. we live east. we need east. no east. left = east. sounds good. was it good? no. ksajd;lasdklsdakads;. we drove through another ghetto-ish area for awhile. but finally we found the highway. yay! but we couldnt find an onramp. askd;saldklasdklasd. luckily i realized we were close to Union Station and Club Liquid, and well, i know how to get hom from Club Liquid. so we are back in downton stl like we were 2.5 hours before, and oh finally, we find the exit. we find it we find it we find it, after making circle. we found it. and then i floored it all the way home.

so that was our exciting night filled with being lost.i used up half a tank, drove like 150 miles. wow. thats....not cool...but hey it was fun. hurrah for fun. hehe dang. this was long....

hmm. this is going to be a busy weekend. I have to start on my real speech that im giving at the TPC since i have my dress rehearsal on wednesday. I also gotta get officeXP on my comp since uh yea, i wasnt able to do my CMIS hw tonight since, after a long story, powerpoint and excel were removed from my comp. I'm also busting my brain writing a paper defining time. hehe my material comes from andreas blog with that phil guy, about how time is the moving image of eternity. it really is pretty darn pimp to think about, and how true it is. yea, its cool. i also want to fit some time in to update my peeps page, thatll take me some time, do laundry, clean the apt, and on sunday we have our first playogff game. yea its against an undefeated team. hope we do well. wah. so busy. well not really. but yea. always so much i want to do, and then i spend time playing ncaa football 2003. oh well. at least the game is fun.

i wish i had a really long weekend that i could spend here. brian and i were talking about how we are so creative at night right before we go to sleep. we dont have enough time to act on those thoughts though since we gotta go to bed, and then we end up forgetting about them, only to remember them again late on some other night. its a viscious and non productive cycle. and need to bust a cap and do something. well i did write a page and a half about time, and the paper isnt even due for like 3 weeks. hehe, yea go me.

man i really love my rolley chair purchase. im really glad we dont have carpet now, since that allows me to roll wherever i want in the apt with ease. and since out apt is the handicapped one, i can even slide right up to the sinks with so much ease! haha i just roll back and forth all day between my room and the living room and kitchen. OH SO GOOD.

went to the tpc today, hurrah! attended the youth group, listend to the service, tz told a joke, i was amused, good praise, and light football and lunch afterwards. hurrah! i havent had chinese meatloaf in forever (and it made my hand smell really funky afterwards). and i notice emily and angie both say "what the mother". hehe yes. played some more football after lunch, tossing it around. then i gave eric a ride home around 2 and then came back here. hung out, chilled, wasted the rest of the day away, etc. i am however adding many songs to my collection on my comp thanks to hannah. go hannah. hang out some more...and yea thats my day.

ps: i love my chair.

hurrah! man yesterday was a high quality day. the time around class was tough though, just running around trying to get stuff done, but yea once i finished that and came home all was good. first of all i gave myself today off, so i have a 3 day weekend! that mentality last night kept me happy. friends was on. friends is good. so is macaronie and beef. mmmm. then we went to praise and worship, and well that was pretty pimp. then tkast and i went to walmart, and i bought a rolling swiveling chair! this might be one of the best purchases of my life. its really nice to sit in at my computer, much more cushiony than the chairs the give us.

after that tyler and i played ncaa football 2003 of course, and we wont the national championship!!!! oh yes! man that was a good night. more of those is need.

anyways, last night at praise and worship, for the last song all 60 of us held hands in a big circle and sang. i was looking around the room at the other people just singing their hearts out to God and Jesus, and you know what? i wanted to take a picture. but that would be like, weird to. but its so beautiful to see that, to see people singing from their heart about and to the Lord, but it would be probably pretty impolite to step out and take a picture.

im thinking that some of the best moments you could possibly capture on film would be hard and impolite to do. it reminded me of taf and the slideshow, and how you never can get a really good and personal small group photo. i mean small group is where you spend most of your awakened time at taf, and its also where you can get the most intimate and personal. to get a picture of a small group in the middle of their talk while they are huddled in a circle and sharing and laughing and crying would be awesome to get to remember the week, but you cant do it. if you took a picture you would mess up the flow and what the small group is trying to do by being a small private group. just cant do it. and if you posed for it....theres no fun in that whatsoever. poop.

hehe ok time for a happier blog. lalala, no homework tonight! yay! yea ive been wasting time lately playing Stronghold, some war sim game matt downloaded. yea, being even more unproductive, excellent.

well as fate has it im probably going to end up going home this weekend, although i dont know how its going to play out. since my mom took my cell back she cant call me. and well im not going to call her because she told me not to etc etc and for other reasons probably. but yea tyler and matt are both going hom and adrienne will be home and if my mom makes my sister go home and work i will tell her to stay at school and i will work, so yea...will jon work or not? that is the question. it is homecoming weekend back home though, even though that doesnt really pertain to me much since really wouldnt do anything for it...hmm, i wonder if i could actually go home, as in too my house...with my mom all mad at me. i dont know....

in other news...i made pot stickers tonight. matt and tyler have never heard of one, seen one, eaten one. and well they dont want to.matt too like a nibble and said it was weird and looked nasty. but matt is THE pickiest eater in the world i swear. a large amount of things he doesnt like to eat. tyler and i shake our heads at him. bad matt.

hehe ok...time to go play more of me game. yay!

oh yea thanks for the prayers, me's appreciates.

disclaimer: this is long. and i vent about my mom the whole time. yea.

ok. so im kinda in a weird funky state now. quite irritated and frustrated and sad and all this other crap. so yea i was at home this weekend to help my mom sell ice cream. i get there friday night and i do my thing there since i used to work at baskins, and my mom starts barking out orders to me about how to treat customers like i dont know how too. right...anyways there was more of that crap that night. my mom doesnt really listen to me, in many ways. like i told her it wasnt a good idea to overtake this place. she did anyways. when she asks me a question, i answer, then she asks 3 more times. and then i get frustrated and yell back at her the answer. then she yells at for yelling at her. and then shes riled up so she yells at me for the next half hour. so yea. thats how it went this weekend.

well saturday came by and i worked all day. my mom unintelligently started this shop with no experience with ice cream / smoothies. whatsoever. she doesnt know where certain ice creams are located and really doesnt know what we sell and dont sell and other things. and shes the boss. and i dont know and my sister doesnt know. so yea that was stupid. at least friday night wahji was working and he had been there with the previous owners so he knew what was going on. but saturday just me my sister and my mom. it was pretty hectic, and i was dealing with the customers the most since my mom was experimenting with the bubble tea (which i think is totally stupid to try to start with it now, i think she should understand what chocolate chip ice cream looks like first since she had to ask me THREE seperate times....) and my sister was doing random things.

so yea im in a pretty pissy mood. and my mom is too. my mom and i are alike...and thats why we fight with each other a lot. i tell her how tyler was going to pick me up around 10 on sunday since hes my ride back. but she gets MAD. she wanted me to stay and work all day sunday. and shes like "any other child would come home every weekend to help their family business, you are so bad, i cant believe i have a son like you." now it doesnt really bother me since shes said that many times before, but ya know, it doesnt make me want to stay and help her any more when she calls me bad and calls me names. shes trying to make me feel guilty for leaving too since this is a family business and i am family and i have to help and if i dont im not part of the family. well shit. i told her long ago i didnt think this was a good idea to open up this place. and even though the rest of "the family", ie me and my sister, didnt think this would be good, my mom bought it anyways. and now its a family business and im OBLIGATED to come home every weekend, forget my life at school, and work oh about 15 hours in a weekend. screw that.

my mom says she opened this for me. not for my sister. but for me. and that i will get all of the money she makes down the road. ok first of all, she doesnt think she made much money saturday (which would be the best day of the week) and called the previous owner cuz he told her she would make lots of money. i think hes shady. and i dont trust him. personally, i think my mom got cheated a bit. so yea shes not making much money and her and i fought all weekend. anyone think thats worth it? hell no. so again, i feel pity for my mom and that i should help her. then she bitches at me again for being a terrible son and uses one of her favorite lines "why do i need enemies when you are my son???" on me. and then i dont want to help her all over again.

i dearly hope and will pray that my mom doesnt yell at the people she hires. i hope to God that she treats them well. she will need it. if youre still reading this and you pray...pray for my mom and her business.

ok so sunday comes around and im packing up to go back to school. my mom is doing the same to take stuff to the store. right before she leaves though she comes upstairs for one last scream session. my mom is like a bully. she will yell at you and belittle you and cut you down to make herself feel better. and its usually me who is the target of her anger. so she screams at me in a pretty scary voice because my mom can be a scary woman. usual jargon flows out of her mouth in mixes of mandarin, taiwanese, and english, pointing at me and whatnot. then she tells me to give back my cell phone. i knew this would happen from the day i bought it. so she takes it. and she doesnt know my school # so the cell was our only way of talking. so now she cant call me and yell at me on the phone at least. but yea shes like "good now we dont talk anymore, dont come back home ever again, i dont want to see you." haha wtf?!?!? its really mind boggling that she says this to me. shes said those words many times to me and of course it never happens. truthfully my mom loves me the most in the world. i know that. but then she also says she hates me the most in the world. and sadly, i can pretty much say the same about her. i dont know if i love my mom more or hate her more. thats just totally wrong.

anyways she goes on and says she is serious this time for me to not come home. she first did it when i was 15 i think. so i did. and she let down after a few weeks while i lived with my dad. now she says that she only let down because i was young and she still had time to "save" me and that i didnt know what i was doing. and now that im "20" (even though im 19....) i should understand how everything is and that im old enough to go. ok so now she wants me to go. but she wants me to go because she didnt want me to go. ok...anyways, then she says i should go because if i stayed i have to listen to what she says and do what she says and thats final. but she said i was old enough to make my own by default wouldnt i have to leave then? this is all very confusing. my mom is quite irrational and unreasonable and oh yea, she called me a hypocrite too. a hypocrite!!! the woman who while arguing says so many contrasting things called me a hypocrite!!! ahahahaha right. eh, well maybe she doesnt know what it means. or maybe i am really a hypocrite when i argue with her.

she brought up a good point though. ive been planning on going to taiwan to see my dad in december. then she bought this and she got PISSED when i told her i was going. she thinks it is my family duty to spend my break at the ice cream place. instead of go visit my dad who lives there now and saw for an hour at dennys for the first time since the end of july, over 9 weeks. she compared that to when i went to la this summer and only wanted to go for a week.

ok ill be honest. id rather go to taiwan by myself to visit my dad and see tafers and well just be in taiwan and play mah jong with grandparent...than spend more time in la, have my mom compare me to my cousins, and basically have her try to "teach me something" on the trip. and of course fight with her. since thats what we do. but yea i guess thats a bad refelction upon me, id rather be with my friends than family. well certain family that is. but hey now i REALLY want to go to taiwan so i wont have to work. sucks for my sister though. my mom is making her stay. and my sister wont fight to go. i wish my sister would stand up to my mom more. i dont want her to be totally like me and argue with her all the time, but my mom has just got to be put in her place sometime. i try i guess. but this is all just f*cked up.

my moms guilt trip combined with my knowing that she cant handle this by herself is pretty much f-ing with my head. i REALLY dont want to go home and work, but i feel i should at the same time. but she doesnt want me to now apparently and i dont want to give in. but she cant call me either and ask for help since she took the cell. see i knew this ice cream store would be bad. yea sure we will make money, but at what cost? will it be worht it? i dont think so. now i dont want to go home at all.

but after all of this, its just going to go back to the same. next time we talk i guarantee you it will be like nothing happened. and pasdjkfl;asdkasd. shes going to be nice. and i dont think im a mean i can only be nice back to her. its an endless and viscious cycle in my family. and well i pretty much hate it. i dont remember feeling like i dunno, sad, guilty, a long time. but hey my mom can be a good mom and a nice lady. shes usually nice to customers...thats good. and she was really nice to wahji. thank God. so yea dont think shes all that bad. she really can be nice and loving. but yea......ok i dont care anymore to type about this.

i need a hug.

hmm right. so traci was telling me about her latest person of interest and i busted open my yearbook to look. and then all of a sudden it seemed all too weird. flipping through the pages i saw what april wrote, and she wrote a pretty good amount. and i dont talk to her at all. heck i could probably count all the people i talk to regularly from my class on one hand...brian matt ktmac and jenifer. i think thats sad. and now im sad. sadness. i think im going to continue to make myself sad and read all of this. where has all of time gone since senior year? it seems just like yesterday. without a doubt. but it wasnt. it was so long and things there have changed. right......

Har Har

eh heh heh. well matt made a video from when beth invaded our apt last wednesday and when we were wrestling on the ground and i was holding her down. we added some porn music and made sound edits, and ta da! blackmail video for beth! haha. beth and hannah came over and were highly amused by it, kind of disturbed, but amused. and then they got mad at us again for nothing. haha right. dupid.

oh and before that, tyler matt and i were having some fun trying to bounce a golf ball into our toilet! haha yea it was crazy. im telling you its a fun game. we were all the way in our living room, had to bounce the golf ball over the couch, through the hallway, into the bathroom and bounce off the opened bathroom door into the toilet. it was FUN. haha the crazy unpredictablilty of the ball also added to the intenseness, haha, we would stand in the bathroom watching the toilet while the other person would have their turn trying to get it in the bowl, and wed stand there with out hands over our face and crotch standing back...haha it was carazy. the added stipulations was that whoever got it in, the person after him had to get the golf ball out of the toilet. AND I GOT IT IN!!!! hahahah yea!!!! so tyty had to get it out. hahaha. yes. man that was fun. we need to do it again.

aaand before that, i watched the X-files movie with jackie and matt on tv. now ok it was a good movie and all, but i was confused. i thought i had seen it before, but i was wrong. what i saw long before was like mulder and scully were in the bermuda or something as well as back in the 1920's doing something. i remember it well because it was really impressive to watch because there were like 3 parts where the camera was continuously rolling without editing, it like followed scully throughout the entire fbi building talking to all these people without a camera change or anything and it was really cool. but yea, if any of you know, tell me.

and oh yes. i wanted to ask my jh campers if they know who Alf is. i know y'all see him on the 10-10-220 commercials, but since they are young do they even know it was a show and whatnot? because alf is cool. emily and karen, you tell me.

aaaannnnd before that jackie was here of course and we all ate pizza. yay for pizza. and before that i did wind sprints to train for flag football, hehe. and before that i got a haircut with oshley, we got them together. hers is good. i dun like mine much, but itll grow out. and before that i went to my only class today, speech. mass media was cancelled today and therefore i didnt feel like going to english so i slept in this morning. hurrah. and before that at 730am i signed up finally for an advisors appt for classes next semester...i hope i can get in........

hey that was cool. it was like a reverse blog, in reverse chronological order. pimp.

Woohoo, go team thunder for our victory today in coed flag football, winning convincingly 32-6. Yours truly had a decent fantasy day, totaling 9 points with 80 passing yards, 1 passing td, and 1 reception for a 2 point conversion. 9 fantasy points for myself isnt too bad, i could have gotten more if i was going by a private league scoring system as well. but yea we won. yay for us. oh yea, if we make it to the championship we get to meet Rams players and cheerleaders, and if we win the school championship, we get an all expense paid trip to u of i for the state tournament! haha yea. thatd be cool.

eh he he. Beth and hannah went home this weekend, and since we have this wonderful war going on, we got into their rooms and messed with it all. the highlights include hanging beths teddy bears from the ceiling, taking a Hungry Jack pancake mix box and replacing "Jack" with "Beth" to make it Hungry Beth (since beth is way too self-concious about her weight even though shes tiny) and then, with credit to howard at TAF99, placing 400 dixie cups filled with water covering their floor. wahahahahaha. yea we are cool dudes.

and now its a lazy sunday night and ive actually done my homework and been productive today. AND i was productive yesterday when we cleaned the whole friggin apt. yea that sucked. we already have many dishes back in the sink. pooo.

Have No Fear, Jonny Lee Is Still Here!

hehe...i better blog to get my sagging ratings back up. so yea ok, The War started wednesday night. matt tyler and i went over to abby and oshleys apt to hang out, and when we came back the furniture in our living room had been moved back into the hall and the bathroom, such as the couches, fouton, coffee table, etc. so basically our living room was empty except for our entertainment center. other various things such as light bulbs and toothpaste were hidden, and my britney spears posters were turned upside down. (grr.) the culprits? beth hannah and susan. so yea the girls come over later like la la la playing dumb and they keep calling and knocking on our doors but we didnt answer them, until one time when they knocked and we opened the door and splashed water all over hannah. good move. then we opened it again and they stormed us since we could get much footing. well beth squeezed in while i was occupied with hannah and susan, but we kept those 2 out. beth however made a mistake coming in. big mistake. we basically had her pinned on the ground for 30 minutes with me on top of her for a majority of the time. beth doesnt like it when im on top of her. wahahaha, shouldnt have forced your way into the apartment then should you have?!?!?!? this is all on film to on matts camcorder. quite amusing.

so yea that ended with other random hilarity ensuing. and then we got our revenge later that night. wahahaha. they awoke to there door being tied to another, couches and chairs blocking the exit, and many hidden things from their apartment. hehe silverwair all over the place! and i took beths britney dvds and my starry starry night painting back. but yea we did a good job. good for us. its tough though since we love beth and hannahs other 2 roommates, jessica and marci (marcindaaaa is her real name). and we do not want to harm them in any way. haha marci is from washington, missouri...middle of the heartland. and she has one crazy boston (bahston) accent. dont know how she got it, but yea. its even more affluent whilst she is...partying we shall say. hehe yes.

so yea that was eventful, very eventful. last night we hung out over at their apt again, tyler and i tried to breakdance, and i learned how to crip walk. aww yea. drama outside between drunk straight guys and drunk gay guys. and well the drunk staight guy was stupid, really stupid, very funny, but stupid. and one drunk gay guy was kinda dumb too....but yea. unneeded drama. yea drunk straight guy was definitly stupid.

aaaannnnnd today i spent money on clothing for the first time in foeva. bought 2 hoodies and 2 pants. 1 of both kind from AF and Old Navy. yea. money money money moneeeyy. ive been throwing around the pigskin a lot though, preparing for our flag football game this sunday. yea hopefully we will all play very well and win one. that will be a fun time nonetheless.

and oh yea!!! hahaha. for english im writing a paper contrasting BRITNEY SPEARS vs. christina aguilera. haha yea. ill have to go to many websites to "bone up" on the 2. ahahaha ok ok dirty dirty...must remember emily and karen, my 2 little people, read this. (haha i just called you little people!)

in cleaner news, roger might come visit next weekend! and julie will be home as well. so its like mad taf party. man thats fonna be sweeeeeeeet. and dang it. i havent gotten my taf vcd yet. all because of my connections to kevan. pooo. well itll be worth the wait im sure :) . hurrah. i know theres something im missing, but hey, that just means more blogging for you!!!

yeeeeessss. ok so saturday i woke up at 11 and took my mom to the airport and then i went on my way of running errands foeva. took the car to finally get an oil change, haha i was scheduled to get my last one in december of last year. yea i think i was a lil overdue. walked over to target to see if i could use my 40 dollars in target gift cards i got in the mail on some picture frames but they didnt have anything too pimp for any of my selected pictures. so yeas. me buy nothing. went back to walmart and bought many canned goods and macaroni and cheese for school and the mighty ducks on dvd for 10 dollars! yaaay! i loved that movie when i was little. heres a possibly pointless sidetrack story but yea: so the movie came out whenever it did back in the day and my sister and i rented it but i couldnt watch it because i had an early soccer game the next morning :( . so i had to go to sleep early while my sister watched the movie downstairs. but i couldnt sleep because i could hear my sister watching the movie and laughing and i could hear the cheering in the film so i remember i kept getting up and going to the stairs to sneak a few peaks of the movie. haha yea....but i of course had to go to sleep. so i woke up the next morning for my game....but it was rained out! so i could have stayed up and watched the movie the night before if only i had known! graaaaahhh. but i watched it that morning anyways since i had no soccer game. yeas.

ok so yea...after walmart i went home and packed some stuff up and then left to isu land! got there around 4 or 5 to adrienne and susies to plaaaaay. adrienne dyed her hair brown and she did not like it right away, but oh let me tell you, she looks good. mmm mmm good. haha yea. susie put in highlights for her too and i watched them, it was interesting since i have never seen girls put highlights in for each other with the weird hat and the pulling of the hair out. yeas, i took pictures. hehe.

then the girl got all dolled up for jakes party, and yea im glad im a guy. they had to do their hair all and whatnot, ah yes. adrienne and susie do it well though i must say. hehe adrienne looked like a skinny kelly clarkson from american idol after she got ready. so we got ready to go to the party at jakes but sadly susie didnt feel well so she couldnt go. we met up with julie, their friends at isu who is like an asian version of them...its weird, heh. jakes party was fun, we danced danced danced while everyone else drank. yea...except for jake of course, he hooked it up with the cherry coke, hehe.

stayed there till bout 1130 then adrienne and i went back to her apt to hang out. susie went to sleep after feeling a bit better and adrienne and i chatted for like 4 hours while lying there. hehe. yea dude, adriennes bed is like...a magnet for comfort. its like the softest thing ive ever been on, its amazing. yea nice pillows. woke up a few hours later and susie and i hit up a church with many old people. hehe yea...many many old people. and then i had to come back and leave at 12 :( . oh sadness. hehe it was a mad rush too actually, i was flying down i55 trying to make it back to school by 3 for flag football practice. i got back in spfld at about 130 after going like 85 in the highway. i packed my car with all the crap i had to bring back it let me tell you it was pizzacked. left spfld around 2 and got here at 315, so yea i wasnt too late and i made it.

on the drive down i was listening to my taf cd and temperance was on it with forever young so i though of my forever young partner andrea and called her. and we talked. and then my phone disconnected and i called back thrice and got her voicemail.....hmmm....interesting.....

and now im here. and quite tired. and have a speech to do that i havent started. but i brought a tv down and we have an amazing idea for it. oh its fonna be good. ill show you pictures once we are done!

ok so yea, today was movie day. i watched that movie on BET and then after that i watched The Abyss on AMC, and earlier today i watched Mississippi Burning on AMC as well. 3 movies in one day. well good for me. but yea, all 3 movies like, were high quality pieces of work. the end of abyss had a good little self reflection piece on how humans treat each other badly and continue to do so. MS burning was based upon a true story back in the 60s with racism and whatnot and "the movie on BET" had like issues about judging people too quickly etc. yea i didnt explain it very well but all 3 movies all tied in together with a message of trying to understand the other side whether it be race, age, or in the abyss's case a whole nother foreign species of nice and intelligent jellyfish. but yea. gotta understand people. gotta try to understand the other side before you do something. we know its tough, but you gotta. hey jh quote!

"Seek to understand, not to be understood"

i need to go back to watching more tv in my life. i was smarter when i watched more tv. go figure.
