THINGS ON MY MIND ( Resolved.. sorta? ) — Halloween costume, check. — Plan for Halloween weekend, check. [ TMR- Pumpkin carving + scary movie watching w/ Joshua then the Club w/ Nhu + Ni, SAT- Char’s Party w/ Joshua & Ni (?) ] — Japan = hopefully work @ my dad’s friend’s brothers cafe while living in the hostel [ $10/night equaling out too about $300/month good deal! ] w/ Joshua who might possibly come with to teach english in Japan! — New York = probably a no-go.. well it’s either NYC or Cali to visit Audrey.. decisions.. — Dad’s restaurant.. I’m still thinking.. :/ which brings me to maybe even trying to get a new job @ a cafe as a baker/apprentice/intern to get more experience in the industry. — moving out is a no for sure. thinking ahead: i’ll be done w/ school by next year & then probably going to Japan for @ least 3 months so I’ll just wait till I’m back from Japan.
i think thats all.. i feel a lot better about going Japan after talking w/ Joshua & my mom. now i’m super excited!!!!! :D
T H U R S D A Y — a regular day @ school except for a POP FREAKING TEST.. that i failed.. — found out there was miscommunication w/ plans for Western, so its a NO GO now :( — took a nap cause i started my _____ & was frustrated w/ halloween plans! stress. — finished buying everything for my Russell outfit w/ Joshua. — then @ Johnny Rockets, yum. — finished making midterm flash cards for theory — project runway
haven’t done this in a while :] + woke up later than usual but got ready just in time including making my coffee + due to my coffee was really awake the whole day + in CUL 106 we actually got do things aka cutting + cooking veggie + cookie rotation was good as usual - except we burnt a batch of cookies.. again + got to pipe meringue in theory + didn’t feel tired after getting home = NO NAP!!!!! HUGE accomplishment for me! + actually studied @ starbucks & enjoyed it - couldn’t decide what to do after joshua got off work so just went home grumpy + joshua came over ( most amazing bf ever ) & we made up + played ‘Professor Layton’ on DS!!

Today, I witnessed my 7-year-old sister standing up to a bully at the playground, who was making fun of her asian eyes. Before I could get there to stop him, my sister kicked the kid in the balls, and stood over him saying “Yeah, my eyes are squinty, but you can’t have kids anymore. Loser.” I feel she will do great things in the future. MLIA.

S E V E N T H O U G H T S 1] I think I’ll be Marie Antoinette next Halloween. 2] I’ve been craving chocolate covered gummy bears & Puntini candy for days. 3] I might go to NYC in March which would be absolutely amazing. 4] Movies I want to see: Where the Wild Things Are&The Hangover&New York, I love you. 5] I’m very very content with life :] 6] So since my baking program ends by next December I’m thinking/being pressured into by my parents to go to Japan & work/study @ a bakery there. 7] I’m already used to having my parents home. I’m really glad they’re back.
