When people think that I am old/senile or a super immigrant and therefore don’t understand/speak English and they feel compelled to repeat simple things 4 times to make sure that I get it. Listen, asshole. I got it the first time. You don’t need to repeat it another 3 times in different sentence structures to make sure I REALLY get it. Unless you’re telling me some chemical...
you’ll know your parents love you if they fall for your guilt trips. I just overheard my mom say to her friend that she’s agreeing to my dog’s surgery because she doesn’t want me to hate my parents when my dog gets sick (when she’s older). Well, she got that assumption right.
I never pray. I stopped when I was 12 and my dreams were crushed (I won’t mention what). I prayed three times a day for a year and my dreams were still crushed. I woke up to a cruel reality that sometimes you don’t always get what you want, no matter how hard you pray. Anyway, my dog is getting spayed tomorrow. I thought it would be a simple procedure since boy dogs just get a...
and that means feeling super duper passive aggressive and non confrontational. Therefore, I am reporting my neighbors to the county and to the neighborhood board to try to a) get them evicted (they’re renters) and b) get their ridiculous RV caravan towed. I know, it’s mean and it’s the holidays. But you know when we have dead rats in our backyard and I’m woken up by...
So, so, so sad
I picked out a gorgeous purple polkadot Kate Spade purse (on sale for $147) that I wanted for Christmas and I told bf that I’d give him until Dec 3rd to order. Today is Cyber Monday and Kate Spade is having a 25% off sale items special so I checked the website for my beauty and lo and behold! It’s not there anymore!! Boo hoo hoo hoo….. The moral of this story is… if...

my dog is going to get spayed and get her teeth cleaned! my dad finally gave up on his dreams of having a litter or two of cocker spaniel babies after a) not finding a proper stud dog and b) I told him that our dog’s likelihood of getting cancer increases exponentially as we put off spaying her even further and c) it is really awkward when she start humping pillows, stuffed animals and...

American Top Gear
a few notes as I’d suspected, it doesn’t hold a candle to the original Top Gear Adam Ferrara is the worst interviewer I’ve ever witnessed. Ugh Ugh Ugh The fat nerdy looking presenter is the most tolerable The other two don’t seem very knowledgable or passionate about cars. I think one of the things that makes the UK Top Gear so enjoyable to watch is that despite...
My parents are really anti-recycle, not because they’re crazy Republicans but because they lived in socialist South Korea where they were restricted on how much trash they could produce each week, and they were forced to recycle. I think this was enacted when I was about 5, and I remember it because I loved making arts and crafts and I remember my mom telling me I had to limit my arts and...
what doesn't make me smile
though, is when someone charges $18 for a scarf pattern on Ravelry which looks like it’s just the trinity stitch repeated over and over. some people are ridiculous.
Going on a Whole Foods and Dick’s Sporting Goods date w/ papa. It’s the simple things in life that make me smile. Like when my dog smells nice after a bath.
all I want to do is squeeze/hug the life out of my dog. And immediately afterwards a meteor would hit my house and I’d die hugging my dog.
I’m in the phase where my oogly googly “I-have-the-hots-for-my-50-something-year-old-professor” burned out to nothingness. It’s like that one Feist song where she croons that the saddest part of a broken heart isn’t the ending so much as the start. I don’t know what I was thinking when I told myself that I found him to be attractive. Well, I suppose it...
I sort of beat procrastination!
Journal 1 out of 8 done! They are all due after Thanksgiving. Oh noes…
has got to be one of the most well written shows ever produced. It’s such a shame that it’s not very popular. I have a midterm, a quiz and 8 short essays I have to write but I can’t help but be glued to my laptop screen watching the entire series in one sitting. I just sent back discs 4-6 today, and disc 7 (the very last one for season 2) can’t come to my house any...
In Treatment: Week 4, Gina
Gina: So, can you tell me what you need?
Paul: I don't.. I don't need anything special. Just what everybody needs.
Gina: Well, you have food, you have clothing, you have shelter.
Paul: Well, sort of. I have a den with no other bears. Is that shelter?
Gina: You need some other bears?
Paul: Mm hmm. Yeah. I miss them.
I'm on to you Whole Foods
Today, bf and I went to the Fair Lakes Whole Foods which I’ve been told is one of the largest store in the area. They have a fantastic wine/beer selection and today they were doing wine and beer samplings. So naturally, given that I am Korean (therefore I have low alcohol tolerance and I like samples), I got really drunk. Then my woes began. I proceeded to buy about $40 worth of organic...

I love how the French write. A video on how the French emphasize the importance of handwriting from a very young age.
I chose to skip class this morning
I slept in. It was glorious. I kept waking up every couple of hours due to my dog’s snoring and each time, I saw the back of my dog’s head, resting on my pillow. It was lovely. By the way, is it normal that my dog sleeps with me? Do other people sleep with their dogs as well?

Foods I like
warmed firm tofu slices with kimchi slices on top. sounds gross but it’s delish.
I love my dog.
My dog is in pain. I believe she scratched her eye because she’s a cocker spaniel and they are prone to ear and eye infections no matter how many times I clean it (which is on a daily basis). Anyway, she can barely open her left eye and because it’s hard for her to open just one, the other one is halfway open. It is so, so, so heartbreaking to see her like that. Honestly, and...
