Arbitrary Mind Picks #96

1. I went from hella ecstatic to crazy bummed in about 2.7 seconds as i heard the words, "Filipino passport holders need a visa for entry..." slowly uttered.
It really really really sucks.

2. Snippets of optimism is the last thing i ever want to hear when freshly bummed. One week should be an efficient amount of time. Maybe 5 days minimum. Just saying.

3. Lesson learned. Again.

4. PMS and disappointment is not a good combo.
I am better off locked up in my apartment than out and about snapping at my friends.

5. I'm gonna stop now.

6. Jason Mraz on Sunday isn't such a bad consolation prize. Ridiculously funny how things work out. I meant that in the most sarcastic way possible.

He is my only hope.

"The grass is greener on the other side..." only means you gotta water your side more. Maybe a little fertilizer. Put in some work.

And she’s gonna learn that this life will hit you hard in the face,
wait for you to get back up, just so it can kick you in the stomach.
But getting the wind knocked out of you
is the only way to remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air.

Arbitrary Mind Picks #95

1. Spent our Tuesday hanging out at the hospital.
The way things work in our country... baffles me.
Registrar: "Do you have an appointment?"
Me: "No. Just a walk-in."
Registrar: "Ok, we'll put you down for an appointment at 3:30pm."
Me: "Ok, great."
Registrar: "First come, first serve po ito..."
... uh, wha?

2. I will never get used to cooking for 2.
It's a double whammy because i don't like eating leftovers.

3. Dylan owns a skateboard. (Finally). I think he likes the thought of owning one... not so much the using of one. *sigh*

4. I love Burger King's Crosscut Fries. McDonald's Twister Fries. Jollibee's French Fries.
I just like fries.

5. I love how kids can play for 12 hours non-stop... and complain about homework that requires 15 minutes of their time.

Arbitrary Mind Picks #94

1. With all the iconic deaths in the past few years... i've realized that it's possible to be affected by the passing of someone you've never even met. I mean, obviously, duh. But if you really stop to think about it... isn't that just a crazy emotion? To feel for someone you have never even had a conversation with or looked at straight in the eye....

2. I need to go shopping.

3. I'm finally going to put my new passport to use. Key word: FINALLY.

4. There's a reason i can't live with roommates. I treasure my alone time. Plain and simple.

5. When the sell-outs come out ahead and your progress begins to dwindle... where do you draw the line? Is it still considered to be your "dream" if a slight alteration has been made against your favor?
There are days i wish life came with an instruction manual. I, for one, am not the kind of girl who reads them... but if the need should arise, i'm the kind of girl that keeps em tucked away in a drawer- you know, just in case.

To Changing The World.

I used to be so anti-Apple. I complained that everything was on "the wrong side" and i didn't understand it at all. Little did i know...
I own a Macbook Pro, an iPod, and an iPhone.
And i absolutely love em all. Made my life just that much easier.
Who knew?
I never would have guessed...

[PS: This video sounds like it's directly speaking to my son.]

I hated every minute of training,
but I said, “Don’t quit. Suffer now
and live the rest of your life as a champion.”

Saturday's Shennanigans

The bright idea of having your friends sit in the trunk of a sedan because you can't fit in the car... and to have one your friends yell out, more than once, "No! We're 30 years old!!!"
... as she walks towards the street to call a cab. I follow behind her, amused at the thought of age-appropriate behavior.

The last time i was ever in a car with people sitting in the trunk because we couldn't fit any more inside was in 1999. I was 15 years old.
