wow. has anyone ever seen someone from their past and felt like, their heart have a burst of joy and happyness within? its a good feeling isnt it? man, that made me feel really good. who did i see? well...

i downloaded some saved by the bell episodes. i watched the opening credits (for the first time in many many years) and then i saw "Tiffani-Amber Thiessen as Kelly Kapowski" and the 3 clips of her waving, spinning in a modeling pose, and looking up and smiling (which i remember was from an episode where she was at the Max, and she was smiling at Zak)...haha really surprised at how...really good...that made me feel. hahah. oh man, i forgot how much i watched this show, how it was such a big part of me growing up. hearing the intro, awesome.

and the episode was a good one too. i caught some jokes that i dont know if i would have caught when i was younger...hahaha. mr. tuttle RIPPED on mr. belding's wife, oh man. it was the episode where they all joined the glee club, and i remember they played the stereo and lipsynced it to make them sound good. and tori spelling was screeches gf Violet. hahaha...aww...great times!

im pretty close to euphoria right now. : )

so im at home. and this keyboard i weird on blogger...

anyways, got 5 hours of sleep and then went to minio's this morning. competed in bridge the hurt my groinal area. har har. actually no, its not a laughing matter. it hurts... :(

had to leave at 1130 to come home and work.

im so tired. work at the ice cream place isnt too much has a lot of perks. i got to see friend, lik ajit! he was randomly home too! haha yay. and then HANNAH! yea hannah! shes supposed to call me in 2 hours, lets see if she does, hehe. then beth and jeff are in town too! crazyness! all these siue people! woot! and of course other various people.

i gave extras to 2 ppl, because the were wearing Springfield High apparel. haha yea, i think i might make that a policy now, if you represent shs, you get more goodies.

but most importantly, some people at the mall just make me laugh. little girls in trendy clothing is usual. tonight there must be a homecoming going on cuz...i saw people dressed up with corsages and boutineers on. but i dont know why you would walk around the mall while all dressed up before your homecoming...yea....

aww there was this little girl who got ice cream! and she was so polite and like...mature. haha. she asked nicely and enunceated and just seemed to be so much older than she looked. it was so cool, haha.

and then there was this 13 yr old "cool" girl who couldnt decide what flavor to get. and kept asking her friend frantically. i tried not to laugh. but then she like threw her arms in the air and her coin purse was open and...all these coins went everywhere...and she needed every single one of them because she didnt have enough money for a lot of ice cream AND the movie she was going to watch.

ah the mall...a great place to watch people (mainly funny teenagers) and laugh.

im tired.

go cubs!

ouch. sad. tear.

from elliots xanga, i read that this girl he knows passed away today/last night. and there was the link to her xanga.

that gets to me, even though i never knew the girl at all. reading the thoughts and life of someone who has died, its a weird weird thing. she posted yesterday too. pictures of friends and family. its sad man. and then people comment on it telling her they will miss her and all of that. its like an eternal (as eternal as xanga will be) book of people wishing you goodbye and how they miss you and all that. i find that part cool. incredibly cool for some reason. but at the same time incredibly sad to see people say goodbye for real. forever.

i think this just makes online journals that much more personable? and connecting? or something. i wish everyone had a blogger/xanga. i wish everyone could share their lives (or to whatever extent we actually do share on these) with everyone. so then i could read up what long lost friends are up too and whats going on in everyone's mind, without actually having to have a conversation. i dont know if thats good to not have a conversation... but it makes it easier to just read blogs. it keeps me informed and most importantly, connected.

but of course. dont get too caught up in these blogs and these xangas. you gotta live to have interesting entries right? yea...cherish it.

and yea, the girl, whos name is Melissa, died because she didnt have her seatbelt on.

WEAR YOUR DAMN SEATBELT PEOPLE. especially some certain people from *coughSTLcough* *coughANGIEcoughcough* and *coughAJITcough*.

I highlighted the lines that caught my attention...hope you dont mind wayne

"Above all else, guard your heart,
for it is the wellspring of life. Proverbs 4:23

guard your heart, not because it's a prisoner, but because as the source of life, it's to be protected. proverbs says it's a "wellspring," a fountain or the source of a stream. water flows from a wellspring, giving life to all who drink from it. however, a polluted wellspring literally kills. one of the biggest and life-costing problems in the third world is contaminated water sources.

guard your heart from pollution. keep its water as pure as the snow it melted from. tend to the stream, removing branches and trash to keep it flowing smoothly. guard it with love and pride, as a dog guards his master's children.

however, don't build artificial barriers around it. streams need to pick its own route. they have a mind of their own -- they know where they're suppose to go. this freedom is especially important in the spring, as the ice and snow melts and swells the stream over its banks, which waters plants when they need the water the most. don't build walls around the stream -- deer and other wildlife need to drink from it to keep from thirst."

for some reason i just cant fall asleep at night. i go to bed around 2am and its usually 3 - 330 by the time i actually succumb to slumber.

anyone see the article about how you sleep is linked to your personality? well i have like 3 sleeping styles (maybe this is why i cant fall asleep lately, because i dont have a set pattern...) but yea. the article is here.

i used to sleep on my side with my arms around my blanket and legs around it too. that means i have a social and easygoing personality. ok so that could work. but i also do "the freefall, flat on the tummy with the hands at the sides of the head, is the most unusual position. Only 6.5 percent of people prefer it and they are usually brash and gregarious."

so im brash and gregarious sometimes? shrug. normally i end up on my back facing up..."Unassuming, good listeners usually adopt the starfish position -- on the back with outstretched arms and legs. "

so basically i have 3 positions with different meanings. meaning im one whack person. awesome.

but i still dont know how to get myself to fall asleep...maybe my queen sized sheets on a double bed or my feet hanging off the bed have something to do with my problem...

and in other news: ladybugs seem highly attracted to me. last week a lady bug joined me and took a ride on my cell phone for a few blocks. sunday the same thing, a lady bug chilling on my cell phone in my hand. and then today one flew onto my arm and i think it bit me too...and finally as i was sitting in class i noticed one crawling from my right shoulder all the way to my left shoulder.

now if that could only happen with real ladies as opposed to ladybugs.

oh and finally one more thing...tafcrush site updated.

we showed julie around the quad and the union and then went to Za's for pizza. and then we went to Evo for bubble tea...and evo is now like Joy Yee's. crazy right? joy-yees is that ridiculously popular and pretty good restaurant and bubble tea place in chicago chinatown and now evo is like it. Roger said something about Joy-yees franchising evo? regardless, when you walk in now they have waiters and waitresses asking if youd like a seat or if you just want boba "to go". haha yea weird. and they have those wood shelves filled with mangoes, very joy-yees-esque, and yea, the bubble tea...all fresh fruit and it was good. yaaahhhmmmyyyyy :)

My Story

ok so I was driving down to st. louis this weekend. I was cruising along the highway at about 80mph, my usual speed, when i got this urge to pray. I looked ahead of me, no cars. I looked behind me, no cars. The highwas was straight. So...haha yea...i closed my eyes and decided to pray. Now yea you can pray with your eyes open...but meh, i didnt. So i closed my eyes. I remember thinking to myself something along the lines of "hey im going 80mph on the highway with my eyes closed, this might be stupid, but whatever! God will protect me...right?" So in essance, i was testing Him. seeing if he would protect me while i did something unreasonable.

I finished praying and then opened up my eyes. oh nut.

I was on the left shoulder of the road, headed towards the grassy highway median. I quickly veered back to the right, probably too quickly. My car veered hard right and my tires screeched. On instinct i veered back hard to the left. My car veered to the left and my tires screeched more, all while i was losing more control of the car. So i veered back to the right one more and car and i did a hard 180 turn, i lost control, and i went flying in the the grassy median tail end backwards in a cloud of tire smoke and screeching. My car came to a long halt eventually. I sat there, hands on the wheel...saying "..."

I looked around and felt fine, and i was. I ended up facing the other side of the highway, and i could see some cars going slowly and some stopping to help. I threw my had out the window to signify that i was ok. I got out, stood up, and looked at my car. I saw a hubcap in the path of torn up grass and dirt that i had left, but luckily it wasnt mine. all 4 tires were ok, no flats, nothing. Everything was as ok as it could have been.

Moral of the story: Dont test God. He will mess you up. But He also protected me. I was fine. it could have been a lot worse. Later on that night when i was in st louis, i saw a couple crashes, one car flipped over on its top. That could have been me, it really could have. But it wasnt. So yea, dont close your eyes going 80mph, and dont test.

But there is more to the story. This is where it gets really interesting, and when i hear these stories in church or youth groups, i usually dont believe them all that much and take them for granted. but it happened to me.

As i was standing there, one of the cars from the other side of the highway had stopped. it was 2 guys, 2 guys you wouldnt normally think would stop and help a stranger on the highway. They were in a big Ford F400 truck, and the driver was dressed in baggy jeans, no shirt, had a shaved head and tattooed, while his friend was decked out in Hurley skater gear and earings. Stereotypically, not your stereotypical good samaritans. They asked me if i was ok and all that, and then they offered me help in pushing out my car. I didn't think i needed to, but since they obliged i said sure. I got back in the car and reveresed up the bank back onto the highway. I said thanks and they said no problem and ran off back to their car. I remember wishing i would have said more, or could have given them more gratitude for stopping and helping me. But i didnt, i was embarrassed at what i had done and wanted to be back on my way. silly me. But as the guys ran back to their car, i noticed the tattoo on the back of shirtless driver with the shaved head and baggy jeans. I saw it with my own eyes, saw what it was, but somehow it didnt register as to what the tattoo was until a day later sitting in church next to alice.

Across the top of his back, starting from the middle out to his left shoulder blade and right shoulder blade, were wings. They were two wings.

an angel? my guardian angel?

I think so.

hmm yes. just switched from majoring in econ to majoring in Advertising and then getting a masters in Broadcast journalism. IM SCURRED! AAAHHH!!! what am i doing?? is it the right thing?!?! will i want to go back to econ?!?! aaaaahhhhhh!!!


- I didnt want to do econ because i dont want to take business stats & calc etc...this i fear might have been in the back of my mind.

- Also in the back of my mind, I think watching What Women Want and seeing mel gibson have a fun time at work makes me think advertising will be "fun". what if they made a movie about fun econ work??? would everything be different???

- Broadcast journalism....whaddafunk am i doing? well ok, i do LOVE ESPN. and i would love to work for them. so this would be close...but....but....meh. boo. haha oh man...scary!

what am i going to do with life?!?!?

heres a really random thought i had...

what if the person you eventually married was also someone you talked to online? I dont mean someone you met online, but someone you actually knew and just talked online with. After you get married, well and assuming you both still go on aim...where would you put that person on your buddy list? would you make a whole new seperate group for you and only your spouse such as "Me and My Better Half"? or would you just leave them in the same group they started out in, be it "Friends", "Girls", "Studs", "TAFers" (haha), or whatever the group is called? I mean, its your spouse right? youd think they would get special consideration on your buddy list, kinda like that Seinfeld episode where Jerry got ranked up to #1 on his girlfriends phone speed dial. but phone speed dial, thats so 90's...and were not in the 90's anymore.

but yea, would you even have them on your buddy list? i mean if you are married, youre going to be living together, and quite possibly sharing one computer, so neither of you would ever be on at the same time, so why have them on your buddy list at all? Well maybe if one is at work...but really this is all too much interesting to me and i think i might be going to deep into this...haha, but interesting nonetheless....
