Blog #25 – All I want for Christmas is…

I don’t even know how to start my list, mainly because it will never end, there is just so many things i want and  would love to have.

for the gift that wouldn’t cost a thing, I guess an A for my class? haha well I would also love a nice warm hug, that would just make my day 🙂

For the gift below $10, I guess I would love a nice pint of beer, cant beat that 😉

for the gift below $500, I would love a pool table in my place, its just so cool, saw one over the thanksgiving weekend for $200 at Sears and couldn’t get my mind off it

for the unlimited range one, I would love a car, yeah a car, a real car not a toy one. I would love a hybrid though, would save me gas and I could drive to the Sierras whenever i want to.

But i’m not a greedy man, I guess I would just love to see my family again, i saw then last in June, and i don’t know when i’ll see them in person again.

Blog #24 – Worst Story Ever Written

Whats the worst story ever written, I mean is it really that obvious as to which story is the worst?

I have only one answer, the Twilight saga

I read all, Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse & Breaking Dawn and I thought it was an absolute waste of time.

Throughout theses four books there were huge portions in them that were just there to waste time and add unnecessary content. Most disappointing of all was definitely Breaking Dawn, because the whole book was leading up towards the huge epic battle in the end that just kept you reading on and on because i just seemed like it was gonna rock, they even recruited vampires all over the world that were ready to help them and die horribly in battle

then

it didn’t happen, everyone went home

meme-jackie_chan-wtf

I wasted so much of my time, and you might be wondering then why did i even bother to read all the books, well i started on the first one, i didnt like it, but i thought it had some potential for the next book, plus someone was making a movie out of it so the rest of the story must be good.

NEVER HAVE I BEEN SO WRONG IN MY LIFE

plus, Bella in the books is so indecisive and is waaaaay too needy, she wanted to kill herself when Edward wasn’t there.

Super bad role model for young females who are looking for inspirations in characters like these.  Plus, its very degrading.

I mean look at Hermione, she’s smart, intelligent, independent, witty, a perfect role model.

I think Bella’s character is very damaging, because there is surely gonna be someone thats gonna look up to her and be like, I wanna be like Bella.

Oh hell no, Stay away from Twilight, its horrible.

Read Harry Potter, any four chapters in Harry Potter could easily beat all the contents of the four books of the twilight saga

Harry Potter FTW

Blog #23 – gratitude

At this point of my life I’m just grateful for everything that I have right now.

I’m grateful that I’m able to study in college, to have food, basically everything. I feel that everything that I experienced in my life was a blessing and I’m just happy that everything happened.

I grew up in a family that was basically grateful for everything that we have in our life, and so I guess the part of me that is always grateful is from there. I’m just grateful about everyday I have.

BLOG #22 – EMBARRASSED

embarrassing deer

Growing up I was always quite a vain pot, i liked look at anything that had my reflection so I could do m hair and stuff, mirrors, windows, spoons, sunglasses, anything that had my reflection I would always look at it.

Well this one time i was in front of a restaurant and I was waiting for my table, so I turned around and saw this car with nicely tinted windows, perfect for me do my hair and smile at my reflection. I i was happily running my fingers through my hair when suddenly I noticed an old lady looking back at me from inside the car, then i proceed to squint my eyes a little more and noticed the car full with people and everyone was looking at me.

My heart immediately went cold! I tried my best not to freak out and walk away as calmly as possible, I just wanted to be out of sight of that car as fast as I can, I was sooooooooo embarrassed through out my meal I prayed that the occupants of that car would not come in and dine at the same restaurant I was in.

And this didn’t just happen once, it happened a couple of times, i’m such a genius

Genius!

BLOG #21 – One thing thats really bugging me, SO MUCH

rage face

well lets be frank here, theres probably a thousand things bugging me, things i cant stand, you know stuff like racism, stupidity, one’s lack of the ability to place themselves in someone else’s shoes, not getting the right flavor of ice cream, light beer, and many more.

But one thing thats really bugging me now is that i haven’t found the way to master to right consistency of steamed milk for latte art. I used to be able to do it, overseas but i think i havent found the right brand of whole milk here.

But i will not give up! NEVAAAAAAAAAAAA

BLOG # 19 — Social Problems I can’t Stand

There’s a lot of problems in our society that we can deal with, some of them are not exactly problems, but they’re just things that can be done better.

One of the social problem that I find serious and that it needs to be addressed is littering.

Littering seems easy, just drop whatever garbage you have on the ground, and there goes all your problems, you don’t have to hold on to it, you don’t have to look for a trash bin, you don’t have to think about it.

its easy, just let it go

But the problems it causes just irks me so bad, It causes the environment to look dirty, in causes rodents and all sorts of icky insects to strive in, it makes the place look bad, and if you’re littering in your neighborhood, it makes the potential price of housing in your neighborhood go down.

There’s basically nothing good about littering, each year, many sea turtles die because the mistake plastic bags in the ocean as jellyfish and feast on them, until they choke and die.

I believe people should understand the power of oneself to change the world. I believe in it.

I believe that people should be reminded that if they want a better life with better living conditions, they should start with themselves, and people will follow suit.

so next time when you have some garbage in your hand, for example the small plastic wrapper, or the small piece of tissue you just sneezed in, don’t just let it go.

Look for a bin and put it inside, be a responsible citizen and be the change.
