this is one of my favorite movies:

"Life doesnt hold tryouts"


i forgot, summer plans (pre-TAF that is). I'm unsure of what to do yet. A) get an internship in my field or B) go to Taiwan and possibly teach english.

regardless, here is a list of people that i know/have heard are going to Taiwan. I'm sure i've forgotten some, so let me know.

Ruth Ann Day
Alice & Alvin Wang
Jessica Fu
Ming Young
Dave Hsu
Roger Lin
Anna Wu (may or june)
Calvin Chen

I hope this list expands. and if i dont go I would hope those who do all meet up and take a picture in the Hsih Min Ding (no idea how to spell that) Night Market, with the KFC logo high up in the air in the background, a la these:


this weekend: a julie visit! wait... i have 2 julies coming to visit...

Temperment Sorter

this was good for the ego:

Free report for: Jonathan

You are an Artisan (SP)

Artisans are the temperament with a natural ability to excel in any of the arts, not only the fine arts such as painting and sculpting, or the performing arts such as music, theater, and dance, but also the athletic, military, political, mechanical, and industrial arts, as well as the "art of the deal" in business.

Artisans are most at home in the real world of solid objects that can be made and manipulated, and of real-life events that can be experienced in the here and now. Artisans have exceptionally keen senses, and love working with their hands. They seem right at home with tools, instruments, and vehicles of all kinds, and their actions are usually aimed at getting them where they want to go, and as quickly as possible. Thus Artisans will strike off boldly down roads that others might consider risky or impossible, doing whatever it takes, rules or no rules, to accomplish their goals. This devil-may-care attitude also gives the Artisans a winning way with people, and they are often irresistibly charming with family, friends, and co-workers.

Artisans want to be where the action is; they seek out adventure and show a constant hunger for pleasure and stimulation. They believe that variety is the spice of life, and that doing things that aren't fun or exciting is a waste of time. Artisans are impulsive, adaptable, competitive, and believe the next throw of the dice will be the lucky one. They can also be generous to a fault, always ready to share with their friends from the bounty of life. Above all, Artisans need to be free to do what they wish, when they wish. They resist being tied or bound or confined or obligated; they would rather not wait, or save, or store, or live for tomorrow. In the Artisan view, today must be enjoyed, for tomorrow never comes.

Atisans make up between 15 to 20 percent of the population, which is good, because they create much of the beauty, grace, fun, and excitement the rest of us enjoy in life.

haha yay i make life fun for the rest of you. thats actually a personal philosophy that i have tried to uphold for a long time. interesting eh?

wow. this article is sad. not sad like oh the world is terrible, but sad that its actually a top story. from my hometown newspaper nonetheless.

I cant believe they would write about Chicken Tuesday. i mean ok, i'll admit, in high school i loved that lunch day too and i looked forward to it, but the girl who was sick, was going to stay home, but then DECIDED to go to school because it was Chicken Tuesday...thats just sad. I guess thats how you get kids to go to school at lanphier though, offer them chicken (haha ok that was mean). but yes, i shake my head in pity.

or maybe im just mad they wrote about Chicken Tuesday at that high school instead of mine.

Go Springfield High.

and on a sidenote, how about them fighting illini?!?! Man we WHOOPED msu.

to avoid dropping to the stagnant list on wils blog...i feel compelled to write. so yea.

im particulary angry that harry didnt go after cho more. she liked him. he liked her. what were you thinking harry, go after that. or maybe i wanted it to happen because when i pictured cho, i imagined her as someone i know. and i wanted to live vicariously through harry. i kinda want cho. but oh, inquisitive minds, who dost one think jon's cho is?

in semi-related news, i might hitch a ride down to st. louis next weekend with julie and roger etc. but yes, next weekend, which includes...valentines day. as much fun as it usually is, i'm hesitant to go down and spend that day with the kids. i think i would much rather prefer to sit alone in my apartment and sulk about having no valentine to call my own. oh how sad is that? but have no fear stl, i still might come. the one power that can overcome a college student in a state of woebegone love?

free laundry at someone's house.

tomorrow: REALLY going to itasa ec in ct.
currently: in harmony's basement after missing my flight.
