Quick/Lazy Post

Alright, so I finally made it to the threshold known as summer! Definitely a relief, for a little bit anyways. I’m also back home, so now I don’t have to deal with the extreme awkwardness of walking into the bathroom that my roommate was occupying at the moment, or waking up in the middle of the night to my other roommate singing and playing the guitar like no one else lives in the home, or just saying hey to final roommate after coming home then being drawn into a solid 2 hours of one sided conversation where I get to hear how his day went down to every last detail, including which spoon he used to eat his cereal that morning. Oh it is so good to be home! Anyways, now that I don’t have any assignments to keep me busy (only the ominous day which I will leave to Alabama for Field Training) I still have to keep myself motivated! So anyways, I found these pictures earlier today and didn’t really have a place for them, so I thought I’d share them on here. Ahhhh, now off to my own bed, in my own home…:P

Sorry if the text is kind of small…

And one more to chew on…

And so…Finals week commences.

My study jam. Now I just need to study LOL.

And I will start that by being on WP, when I should absolutely be studying. My room is an absolute mess right now. I’ve got stuff everywhere. If a tornado were to somehow enter my room and just blow everything away, it still wouldn’t look as bad as it does now. Just add a few angry midgets in the mix with some wooden hammers and you’re probably on the right track.

Haha, on another note…I should totally have waited on posting these last two awards. At least until after finals week. The amount of traffic recently has totally kept me on here for way too long! But I’m not complaining. It’s amazing to know that when I first started…I figured that I would be the only reader. And now…I couldn’t have possibly have known that this supposedly ‘lame’ first attempt at a blog would’ve gotten to where it is now. But I just wanted to thank everyone out there for the incredible support. This blog wouldn’t be, if it weren’t for the incredible people that stop by and are kind enough to drop some advice, or wisdom, or even just a hi! Although it’s getting harder to personally thank everyone, it’s still one of the top priorities that I have. I think it means a lot more when you get a personal thanks from that person.

I know it totally makes me happier than a kid Christmas morning when some of the more well known blogs reply to something that I’ve said. Even if it may have been only one or two words haha. But it means a lot to know that they go through their comments and see who’s reading their stuff. So I’d like to reciprocate that as well. Boy, if WordPress was a class, it would be one of the few that I could ace without even studying.

Haha, I’ve finally narrowed it down to the last few comments :P

So anyways, this one’s out to you! Thanks for making this school year that much more bearable :) Now, should I finish up the night with some studying or by watching The Departed…

The Departed it is.

Beautiful Blogger Award (edit)

Ok, so I was going to just put both awards on one post, then I realized how freaking long that was going to be. So here is the Beautiful Blogger Award as presented to me by the ever so nice Ayasonice.

Alright, so at first I wasn’t too sure if I had done this one right. I mean some other people had the same rules as the one’s posted here. But others had alternate rules that allowed you to share 10 random facts about yourself. And it was pretty 50/50. But considering that these awards are designed for others to recognize your blog, I kind of wanted this one to mean something other than just “Nominate five blogs (er in some cases 7)” Yea, it’s cool if you get an award, but it should definitely mean something to you! So I’m going to change it up a bit and add one more rule. There’s no blogging authority to stop me eh?

Beautiful Blogger Award

The rules of the Beautiful Blogger award are:

  1. Thank the one who nominated you by linking back
  2. (New Rule) Either give a paragraph of the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen or post one picture of something you consider beautiful. Because a picture’s worth a thousand words.
  3. Nominate five blogs
  4. Let your nominees know by leaving a comment on their sites
  5. Copy and paste the award image on your site.

[Sigh] Haha, so once again thank you for nominating me for this award! I never would have thought I was beautiful LOLOL. But I’m glad you think so Ayasonice ;)

My elementary school classroom looked a lot like this. Definitely brings back the memories. I would consider this to be beautiful.

Anyways, so for my nominations:

Alright, I know it said only five. But hey, you all deserve it. I wish I could put more actually. But I definitely should go back to watching a movie (er I mean studying, yea…studying.)

So thanks once again Ayasonice, it’s always a pleasure stopping by. Now you just got to stop posting for this next week so that I don’t get distracted from studying!!

7×7 Link Award

Hmm, so I’m sitting here right now pondering whether I should study for finals…or watch a movie. Turns out neither is happening as I decided to spend a few minutes to put these up before I totally forget about them. I don’t like to do awards posts for my own sake, but I realize that it’s a great chance for some of the other lesser known blogs to get recognized, so my intent in doing these is so that other well deserving blogs get the recognition they need and/or deserve. So anyways, I just want to thank Ayasonice for nominating me for not one, but two awards. If you’ve the sudden urge for some delicious poetry, her blog is definitely one to indulge in. Yum.

7X7 Link Award

The only requirements of this award below.

  • Thank my benefactor.
  • Tell one unknown thing about me.
  • Link to seven of my previous posts.
  • Award seven other folks.

So first off, thanks a ton Ayasonice! Going to totally be honest…I wasn’t a huge fan of poetry, at all in high school. But after reading some of the stuff that you put up, I guess you could say there’s been maybe a change of heart haha! So yea, thanks for that and keep up the great posts too!

Hmm, one unknown thing about me…Born in Germany, raised in South Korea (for the first 6 years of my life anyway :P ). I’m half-Korean, half-Puerto Rican. 100% Awesome. <—haha, jk.

Links to seven of my posts eh?

1. First Ever Post.

2. A bit about who I live with LOL.

3. Cue the creepyness.

4. Some nightmares I’ve had.

5. The Ultimate Nightmare (I still shudder thinking about this one…)

6. A little introspection

7. The work of rainy days

I hope you enjoy those, if you take a minute to look through them. These were some of my all time favorite posts that I’ve done, I think anyways haha.

Alright, so for the fun part. Here are my seven choices for this award:

You guys definitely deserve the recognition! Alright well keep up those amazing posts! I always enjoy reading them for sure :P

Pencil and Eraser

I found this story a little bit back and it was definitely a shot to the chest. I’ve never really thought of it this way.

Pencil: I’m sorry

Eraser: For what? You didn’t do anything wrong.

Pencil: I’m sorry because you get hurt because of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you’re always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and smaller each time.

Eraser: That’s true. But I don’t really mind. You see, I was made to do this. I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong. Even though one day, I know I’ll be gone and you’ll replace me with a new one, I’m actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad.

I found this conversation between the pencil and the eraser very inspirational. Parents are like the eraser whereas their children are the pencil. They’re always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes. Sometimes along the way, they get hurt, and become smaller / older, and eventually pass on. Though their children will eventually find someone new (spouse), but parents are still happy with what they do for their children, and will always hate seeing their precious ones worrying, or sad. All my life, I’ve been the pencil. And it pains me to see the eraser that is my parents getting smaller and smaller each day. For I know that one day, all that I’m left with would be eraser shavings and memories of what I used to have.
