Aiming high

Oh life. What curve balls you throw me.

How is everyone? I feel like I have not blogged much here lately. Well, let's catch up again in hyper speed!

1. I took a few road trips recently. One being San Diego!

delightful bubbly flights

this will someday be in my bibliography

2. We also made our way to Berkeley to help the little bimbo (who is 1/2 an inch or more shorter than me) move into the new place. Gorgeous large windows and a skylit bathroom! What more could one ask for?

Oh, custom fitted curtains for the oversized windows? Ok, now you're asking for too much.

No pictures from me personally but here's a video to hold you over with until said Bimbo gives a video tour!

heheh, best thumbnail ever.

3. Starting this week, officially, I am no longer an intern.

4. I just ate a ginormous peach and am feeling too full. Full is cool.

5. I will try to blog more.

I have been working hard to become a professional Lazy Lady

almost there

Also, how weird would it be if  I had a long hair combover?

In this world full of sharp corners, uneven grounds, slippery slopes, and uncoordinated people, how can we survive?

the new Urban Urban Dictionary

Hello World,
You look like you need a bit of learning from me. Thank you. And you're welcome.

Acronym 101 (2012 Edition) with Ophelia-

Let's start off with something simple that even my parents know (Yes!) 

BRB use to mean: Be Right Back 
But as time has gone on, the meaning has changed drastically. The new meaning is: Bring Rice Back! 
This is a phrase that can be used when someone steals your rice before, during, or after a meal.

LOL use to mean: Laugh Out Loud / Lots Of Laughs
Nowadays, laughing out loud is so blasé.
It is WAY more awesome blossom to say, Love Our Llamas! 

WTF use to mean: What The F-word
Just inappropriate for the general public. We're a PG-13 community! New meanings are in store. 2012 is welcoming the phrase, Why Tree Farms, for frustrating moments. It can be used in cases such as, "She said I was a jerk? Why Tree Farms would she feel that way? I am so Whispering Through Hornets."

WTH use to mean: What The Hell
Oops, I suppose I went one too far on the last example. Anyway, let's explain this oldie.
I cannot condone the use of this phrase either because it's been overused, therefore, Whispering Through Hornets. 

WTHIMP use to mean: nothing
This didn't even exist till this post! That's how far ahead I am!
WTHIMP means What The Hippopotamus Ice Machine Party. Use it.

Ok, let's get to the more important ones:

NATO use to mean: North Atlantic Treaty Organization
I don't know how many of you are affected by this acronym as much as it affects me but I have realized the immediate need to acclimate this to all of our daily vocabulary. Let's make it easier to remember. 
NATO: Not Atlantic Treaty Organization. Easy to remember!
Next time someone asks you which organization constitutes a system of collective defense whereby its member states agree to mutual defense in response to an attack by any external party- you can remember!

SAT use to mean: Scholastic Aptitude (Achievement) Test
One word to describe this meaning - Boring.
Now let's make it interesting! The new meaning is- Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious At Thee

I was going to continue but I'm sleepy now. Good night.

Being sick kind of blows,
When you'll heal- no one knows,
Best to stay indoors and heal,
Drink fluids and eat a hearty meal.

Wait till your body regains its strength,
Patience is at arm's length,
Soon you'll bounce up and down,
Over walls- all around.

Till then I will sit and wait,
And tell everyone that I am great,
Sleep is what I really need and require,
Another post will come but for now I shall retire.

I'm a big girl now! (name that song)

I am typically not that go-getter gal who jumps out of bed every morning with a song in her heart and a bounce to her step.

I wake up groggy and stumbling as I wipe the drool off my cheek.

BUT I decided that it's about time to make small changes in my life. Though they are miniscule, every little step counts. 

Step 1. Try to do more for me.

Step 1.A  : Cook for myself.

To be honest, I find the effort to make a full meal such a waste if I'm only cooking for myself. All that work just for me? Well, why not, if there's anyone I should really work on pleasing then it should be myself.

People in life will come in and out but YOU should ALWAYS be YOUR best friend. Respect yourself, treat yourself, and take care of yourself.

Here's my attempt a few nights ago:

Yum yum yummy?

It didn't even taste bad! Lol, I am not new to cooking by any means. And though I quickly admit defeat at the beginning of every group cooking event, I am not exactly a novice. Therefore in an attempt to step outside of this laziness, I made honey glazed pork chop riblets with boiled cauliflower and rice.

Go me!

How I'm going to get ahead of the game

I realize that there are billions of people in the world. How can a 5' 2" (almost!) girl stand out?

Well, this early morning I have decided to create my goals list and show the world how unique/powerful/physically intimidating I can be!

1. Learn geography. And learn it well.

I am going to know exactly how many kilometers it is between every country, every province within that country, even how many steps it takes from tree 13920 to tree 329208

2. Either grow my hair really absurdly long (think wedding train) or shave my head bald.

That way I can be referred to either as Hair Flair Girl or Hairless not Careless Girl.

3. Learn how to drive manual on the right side.

I already know how to drive automatic so I need to learn manual to be able to adapt to all cars around the world. So if I need to run away from the mobs of fans following me in every country, I can getaway easily.

4. Work out my ring finger, aka soon to be known as: KING FINGER

Everyone says the ring finger (fourth from the thumb) is the weakest of all the other phalanges. Well, screw that! I'm going to work my ring finger out so much, it will be the strongest/biggest/most intimidating finger of all!

5. Develop a shrinking pill. 

Not for me, stupid. For the rest of the world! I'd rather not experiment with drugs personally of course, so I need to spike everyone's drink on Dec 31st at 11:59am so on Jan 1st at 12am everyone can be smaller than me!

6. Learn how to ride a bull. And then an elephant. And then combine them.

This way I can create a new species that has speed, power, and a long nose.

7. Create a new language based on a mix between Morse Code and French.

8. Learn how to conceal my cleverness more.

I am afraid the government will catch onto this newfound power/genius I have and want to get a hold of me to prevent any world domination. I will try my best not to mention all this again once this post is done.

9. Travel to Venus.

I need to go there to figure out how they did the following: maintain life, become a symbol for women, create great razors and then ruin them through the years.

10. Capture your attention.


Chuck Noris, watch out.

Donde esta?

Ever decide to go on random getaways with friends and family?

We did this weekend!

But how would you ever be able to tell when every Starbucks looks identical?

Well, it tasted Vegas-y and we look like we're suffering from heat exhaustion. Are you convinced yet?

My day

Here I am sitting on my TJ Max chair blogging and eating my Fresh & Easy sandwich. 

I cannot even count how many sandwiches I've consumed since working at this internship. Well...I suppose I could count them but I would be mighty depressed. 

I have decided that I need to become more active and putting more effort in taking care of myself. I need to go to the store, buy groceries, and make food. What a booger.

I'm in the sixth? week of my internship and six weeks more experienced with the architecture/design process. Unfortunately to many people (MANY MANY PEOPLE WHO KEEP ASKING AND ASKING) this is not a paid internship and not a guaranteed job. I decided that though my financial situation is very important, I need to just see the upside of things and understand that the experience gained is the most crucial factor. 

Which is the reason I felt the need to blog more often. Remember once upon a time I blogged every day. The end.

No wait, not yet. 

I don't think I can blog daily but I will try to keep updating on my current situation with working. Here's a snippet of what happened today!

7am          wake up to snooze
7:10         actually wake up
8:05         making 2 eggs, toast, and coffee for breakfast
9:00         walk into work
10:30        restroom break
10:32        jump back onto my rolly chair and ended up 
             rolling 2 feet from where I started
12:35        heat up lunch and chat with chatty chatsters in 
             the kitchen
1:15         back to my desk and opening my Hershey's Milk 
             Chocolate with Almonds candy bar
4:20?        just realized it was so late already! May going
             insane with her Revit crashing = Pinkberry 
4:30         some guy bikes up and does a cheesy cheesy wink
             before asking if our company was hiring..?
5:50         packing up and hearing coworkers take shots 
6:30ish      returned home!

Ok, I'll be back soon with another colorful update!

Monday Blues?

I suppose I now follow the working world "trend" by believing in the Monday Blues.

What is this Monday Blues I'm referring to? 

It is the day after the weekend where you spend a good part of the morning trying to figure out why the seconds on the clock are crawling so slowly. 

I suppose the sudden return to a fluorescent box of controlled noise and timely breaks makes it more difficult to bear. 

Well, unfortunately this Monday is over but let me help you out with your Tuesday Greens. (Nonsense carries over)


This is the post that never ends---

it goes on and on my friend----

somebody started reading not knowing what it was ---

and they'll continue reading it forever just because ---
