I was supposed to go this New Year’s Eve, but the whole trip fell through. We planned it way too late, we’re all too broke to fork up $200 to sleep all in one room on the floor (let alone the ridiculously expensive plane ticket)...
Maybe next year, when we all have stable jobs and incomes! hahah
So far, the year has been pretty sucky: breakup, string of boys that don’t mean anything to me or I don’t mean anything to them, my little niece passed away, my GPA has been suffering, horrible high-school-like DRAMA, the New Year’s Vegas trip my home friends were planning isn’t going to happen anymore…
On the upside, I’ve been doing a hell of a lot more partying and meeting more people than I’ve done in the past 3 years of college (suprising I know!). I mostly blame the long-term long-distance relationship I had during that 2-year gap :)
But I’ve learned not to care about things that don’t need to be worried over anymore. I don’t know why it took me this long, while in college too, to learn to not care about stuff that just isn’t worth it. And I’m glad for that invaluable lesson.
So there’s a Korean bar in Berkeley that is named “Porno Palace.” I’m not sure if that’s ACTUALLY it’s name (since the sign is in Korean), but that’s how I’ve been introduced to it as.
They have so many flavors too. Strawberry, peach, watermelon, more that I can’t remember. But my FAVORITE is YOGURT SOJU. That stuff is just too awesomely delicious!
Next step? Get my friend to teach me how to make my own yogurt soju!
I just got an email from a camera repair site saying they’ve fixed my precious Canon SD450! Can’t wait to start camera-whoring-it-up again!!
Pictures are just too much fun, and it really helps you jog your memory after a night of heavy drinking :)
I used to have a long-term boyfriend, and with it being long-distance, I REALLY forgot how much I love partying.
I’ve been a party-girl ever since my college freshman year, and now I’m a senior. And I definitely don’t plan on giving it up… EVER. Well ok, maybe when I pass the quarter-century mark..
I just got my second tat a week ago: “Katelyn” in script with a “script” heart at the end, which is right next to my first tat on my right hip. I fall in love with it over and over again whenever I see it.
I got it on Nov 16th, which was to be my niece’s 3rd birthday. I really think that it helped me get through such an emotional day (all I could think about was her last birthday, and every memory I have of her just kept flooding before my eyes). And so far, it’s really been helping me get through every day after that, whereas for over 6 months, I have this constant pain in my heart.
I recommend anyone getting a memorial tattoo to DEFINITELY get one. When you look at it, it really helps you get through those difficult days.
The first time I got highlights, it was AWESOME. It was just the change I needed for the beginning of the summer, to feel like a new person. I loved it, and got so many compliments for it, because the blond shade of the highlights complimented the rest of me perfectly.
I recently got it redone, and I love it more than ever. Sometimes, I wish I had gone for a more ash-ier blond, but then I think it might look a little dirty (I naturally have black hair, and I think the contrast of that with dirty blond isn’t too great…). I think the next step is to have my hair an ashy brown, with blond highlights.
Yea, my hair is my pride and joy. :)
I got their “infamous” wings… they were SO DISGUSTINGLY OILY AND GREASY. But those jalapeno fries weren’t too bad, but most of the food there isn’t really worth the money.
The atmosphere just didn’t seem that great either. I would rather go to a place that put some more time in decorating, vs. the table, chairs, and bar haphazardly thrown together.
YAY!! My friend convinced someone to get ducktaped to the ceiling!! I’ll have this done in 2 weeks!!
I’m going to be starting my spring break off right! :)
What’s the stupidest thing you’ve blown tons of your money on?
It really wasn’t that painful!! My outer ear piercing is probably the most painful thing I’ve done to myself, and I have 8 piercings :X
My tat is a silhouette, so the guy did an outline of it first with a machine with 1 needle, then filled in the rest with a 3-needle one. The 3 needle one was less painful because it wasn’t concentrated in one area, and it went a lot faster.
I recommend Industrial Tattoo in Berkeley; the guys there are really nice and cool to talk to, plus their custom stuff is awesome.
I got this done last weekend and I really expected it to hurt a lot more than it actually did. I really recommend getting it done, cause even though no one can see it, you feel a lot more beautiful, sexy and confident.
I broke up with my boyfriend of 15 months, because I was his first gf and he wanted to see what it would be like to date other people who had different personalities from mine. It hurt like hell, because it felt like I wasn’t good enough for him.
Although he wasn’t my first bf, he was the first person I actually loved. And that made it all the harder, because he never loved me back, and it was like a slap in the face of complete rejection. I couldn’t really let go either, because he had become my best friend, but I couldn’t talk to him about why I was crying and hurting so badly.
But then I talked about it with my brother, and realized how much I had been missing out on life while I was with my ex. I had stopped going out, partying, keeping up with friends, making new friends, doing things that I’ve always wanted to do…
And it helps to be BITTER. I put together an iTunes playlist with every bitter love song I knew and just listened to it straight for weeks. It really makes you stop feeling sad and sorry for yourself, and empowers you enough to want to go out and meet other people and motivates you to want to go out again. It also helps to go and connect with old friends and busying your life with activities that make you feel happy.
I thought I did REALLY well on my Personality Psych midterm… But I got a 69%!! OMG this SUCKS. Thankfully, the lowest test score is weighted the lowest overall, so I have 2 more tries to bring that to an A.
At least I got a 90% on my Clinical Psych midterm. But I have a feeling I did REALLY bad on the paper for it. And I’ll find out what I got in MassComm tomorrow… crosses fingers
I NEED a 4.0!! I need to bring up my cummulative GPA to 3.2+ so I can actually get accepted for Research Assistant positions when I apply!! SIGH.
