So yeah, today is my birthday! Like you didn't notice the counter that's been there for the past couple months. :P I have to re-look up the code for the counter again. I might put up a graduation counter. :D Damn. There's only less than 3 months left! BTW, I heard that our prom is on June 7th. JUNE 7TH?!?!? That's SO late! Our graduation is on June 18th so prom will only be 11 days before that. WHY SO LATE???
So yeah, the last of the schools that I applied to as supposed to hear from was UCSD. I didn't get into there either! I totally jinxed myself when I told my friends that SD better not reject me on my birthday. Eh. Oh well. All my friends were telling me 'Don't worry, Linda. I'm totally sure you got in. There's no doubt.' Well, yeah, I guess they were wrong. Considering some of the people I know that got in I figured I would too, but I guess not. But that's okay, I'm totally okay with it. I'm perfectly fine with UCI. So I'm officially going to be an anteater now. And not JUST an anteater, but a C.I.A. (Completely Insane Anteater). I'm sorry, they totally need a new mascot. The anteater is SO lame.
Molly, Ritu, and I went out to Golden Spoon for some frozen yogurt. And hot damn! I mean, cold damn! :P It was soooo GOOD! I had it for the first time today and I'm totally going to go there all the time now! I got a small half chocolate malt, half vanilla with oreos. MMmm.. I want more! It was a small, but it was A LOT. And so little calories, too! :D
OMG! I'm trying to figure out how Pmachine works and it's all just too overwhelming for me right now! I remember Blogger taking me awhile to get used to and that is nowhere as complex as Pmachine. Ergh. HELP! I know I can ask certain people for help, but I don't even know where to start! I don't know if I want to keep the same layout or find a new one. I would like to have my own layout, but I don't really have the ability to make my own. Oh well, I'll just take one step at a time. I wish I knew how to make my own. *sigh* I'm not even going to both with my new blog anymore today, it's just making my brain hurt. But if anyone is EVER bored and would like to make a lnew ayout for me, I would much appreciate it. ;D
I forgot to mention in my post yesterday that I was in a cyber cafe for the first time. It was kind of cool. Mike and I were bored so we just went in and I used a computer for 30 minutes. Pretty neat. Props to the person or people that came up with that idea. They must be rackin' in the dough.
I have homework to do. I feel like being VERY unproductive today. I don't think I'm going to do it. I have a Siddhartha test tomorrow though. Blech. I'm just going to go now and mellow out in my room with the music of Nick Carter. :P
Today has been such a loooong day! I had to wake up at 8:30 this morning to get ready to make a trip to the dentist. I rarely ever wake up that early on a Saturday unless I have to. So Mike and I had our teeth cleaned, my mom had to get a root canal (ouch!), and my dad had one of his bridges fixed. Mike and I were the first ones done, but my mom's root canal took forever! So we stopped by the donut shop. I had a donut and a cream cheese croissant. Afterwards, we stopped by McDonald's and I had an Oreo McFlurry. Ohhh.. how I LOVE ice cream! Did I mention how hot it was today? Yeah, it was hot day. After my mom got done we stopped by Jack in the Box, and I had 2 hard hard tacos for $.99. What a deal! So yeah, I ate A LOT today. And I'm not through yet!
After the trip to the dentist, Mom and I went shopping in Ontario Mills Mall while Dad and Mike went to the junkyard to get some parts. That mall is BIG. Or maybe it just seems big because it's all one story and it's like one big hallway that goes in a loop. There are so many stores! And even stores that I haven't been in since I was in Houston! Ahh.. some of my old favorites were there. It was nice. So yeah, my legs are tired from walking so much today. Also, I bought a Kiwi-Banana Dutch Ice drink at Auntie Anne's.
On my way to my grandparent's house afterwards, I was driving and I was going to make a right turn at the red light. I didn't notice a car making a U-turn on the other side so I almost hit it! :O But I'm alive as you can read. :P So now I'm still at my grandparent's. For dinner, we had pizza. I had like 4 slices of pizza. Or maybe it was 5. Who knows. I ate so much today!!! I'm sooo baaad!!!
I just checked and my other new blog and it's already up! :D All right! That was quick! I only signed up with Blogeye yesterday, too. I'm still wondering why they're so generous as to give free hosting and web space. But hey, I'm not complaining. I was lucky I sign up for it right when I checked it out. Because I just checked out their page now they're charging a one-time setup fee of $10. That's still an awesome deal, too. At least I got out of having to pay for that. :) BTW, I'm still going to continue with this blog until I figure the stuff out with the new one. I'm so excited!
I watched the Kings game against the Lakers, and we won! Woohoo! The Kings could have done so much better though. But eh, at least they won and beat the Lakers. And wassup with all the technical fouls?!?! Sheesh! Just friggin' shut your mouths!
Well, have a great weekend everyone! It's the weekend before I turn 18! And the funny thing is that I don't even feel like I'm almost 18. :P Ooh well, big whoop. It's not like it's going to be much different from my other birthdays. And I have to go to the dentist tomorow. I don't really going, but it has to be done. It doesn't feel like it's been six months since my last appointment. I hope I don't get another cavity. It's not like I have a lot anyway. Only one.
BTW, if you happened to be bored or even interested at all, check out the following links to bloggers blogging from inside Iraq. These links look pretty good and legit to me. I got these links from a gal named Trinity. She's the cool person that set up my Blogeye site.
1. If you had the chance to meet someone you've never met, from the past or present, who would it be? I would meet Princess Diana.
2. If you had to live in a different century, past or future, which would it be? I would live in the 22nd century? Why would I? I have no clue! Maybe just to see how much of a difference 100 years can be from now.
3. If you had to move anywhere else on Earth, where would it be? I would either move to somewhere in the U.K. or to Australia.
4. If you had to be a fictional character, who would it be? I would be Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It would be SO cool to be able to do magic!
5. If you had to live with having someone else's face as your own for the rest of your life, whose would it be? I would live with having the face of Reese Witherspoon. I think she's so pretty!
I watched MTV News last night, and they had interviewed some of our soldiers and it's just so sad that they're all so young! God bless them and their family and friends. They also showed how they interviewed a regular Iraqi teenager and their lifestyle isn't too different from our very own. It was really interesting. He also said wants to visit America one day, but then he was asked if he felt the U.S. deserved what happened on 9/11 since so many people hate us. And he said yes . . . I can't say I agree with him, but I can't say disagree with him either. I dunno...
So I was surfing through some of my daily reads and I noticed that someone made a comment on Kathy's blog about Blogeye. I checked it out, and it's really cool!!! It had free hosting that is ad-free, 50 MB of disk space, an email account, and they'll even install Pmachine for me upon request. How cool is that? :) I seriously think I'm going to go through with this, but I don't know yet. This banner on blogger has been driving me nuts forever, and it seems like would be a change for the better. Hopefully, I'll know what I'm doing and I have no problem with it.
The physics test today was okay today. I've learned long ago to not guess how I did on tests. It can only lead to disappointment.
Sorry I didn't post yesterday. But yeah, yesterday had some ups and its downs. I seriously had studied for at least six hours for my calculus test that day. I actually had no problem keeping myself awake either. I ate some yogurt, a Nutrigrain bar, and a banana to try to keep myself awake. I'm not all sure how I did on that test though. Hopefully not too bad.=\
So I wake up yesterday morning hardly able to get out of bed with just four hours of sleep. I was running late and in a blah mood. So I'm on my way to school when my mom mentions something totally by random. She asked me I remembered this girl that we met a couple times back when I lived in Houston. She was like the niece of my dad's childhood friend. The only reason I even have the slightest memory of her is because she was mute. So I never really associated with her much because of that. I now regret that though. I was probably only around 13 at the time, and she was about maybe 17 so about 20 now. I barely remember her. So my mom finally lets it out and says that my dad recent got a phone call from that friend of his. It turns out that girl and her mom was alone at home one night, and a couple of black men broke into their home and took turns raping them. :( When my mom suddenly told me, I was overwhelmed with emotion. As I walked into school, I kind of had to fight back some tears. I mean, I didn't really know this girl but I can't even imagine that it could have been like for her! I even had this horrible visual in my head imagining a couple of black men raping them and she could've even call out for help. Just because she's never been able to talk! And her mom doesn't know any English either, only Vietnamese. *sigh* :*( The world can be a awfully cruel place. I've heard stories of rape, but it didn't really hit and affect me until it happened to someone I barely even know. I'm never ever going to forget to lock the doors to our house again.
Moving on. I've never really voiced my opinion about the possible war with Iraq before, but that's because I have such mixed feelings about it. On one hand, I see can why we should. But on the other hand, I don't see why it should be resolved like this. I want to say that I could care less right now, but I know I do care. I'm just not sure how. My dad is totally against the war. I guess after what he's experience in the Vietnam War, he doesn't think too highly of war and that it should resolved in some other manner because it kills too many innocent civilians. As far as what the majority of the students at school think, they're against it. I'm more against it than I am for it, but I'm iffy cuz I can see both sides. Seriously, I don't trust our government very much. Not that I don't completely, but just look back in history. The U.S. ain't exactly a perfect little angel. If I weren't an American and I looked at the U.S. from the outside, I don't think I'd like us sometimes either. =\ All this coverage of a real possible war of Iraq is seriously getting depressing.
Tawny and I have decided to ditch our EMT class tonight. We were planning on making it up by going to a different EMT class tonight since we couldn't make it on Monday, but we're not going at all. It's only one absence anyway. We'll live. And we have a good excuse for ditching: physics test.
