Tomorrow, Jan. 18th, would’ve been my grandpa’s 80th birthday. Would’ve. I still think about him and wonder what it would be like if he were still here. This might’ve been the empty feeling I felt yesterday… maybe. Thinking about it just makes me tear up, sigh. Honestly, I’m hurt and I feel like I will always be hurt/disappointed. I feel like I didn’t get...
It’s such a beautiful day. The sun is shining but it’s chilly. Just the way I like it! The ice is glistening when the sunlight shines and when I walk along the path it’s like a movie. It’s perfect. Though in my eyes it’s a perfect day, where is this gloomy feeling coming from? Why do I have such a glum face and why do I just feel empty. The day has just begun, I...
It’s not much of a change and you can’t really see it. Especially since the lighting is bad. I feel like I’ve always had that same keep it safe and don’t rebel type of attitude. It’s not a big step or big thing but it’s different. I’m ombre-ing? my hair, well it’s been a couple weeks already. It was spur of the moment and different and I love it!...
HAHAHA!! I cracked up pretty bad!
Work work work...
Today was the first day I actually had a good time at work. I got used to the system! WOOT! We had fun, full of laughs, and it was quite productive! :] Did I mention I LOVE dressing up for work? It’s so nice to be able to wear business attire that I would never be able to wear casually. I bought all these clothes for a reason and now it’s being put to use. YAY! I love business...
My past haunts me...
It came in a dream the past two nights… I’m moving on and living life fine but why does my past still haunt me. Your past will never really go away but I wish this would go away. I don’t like thinking about it and I thought it was finally done with. Never mentioned, never thought about, and so it won’t affect me. It’s still scary, once I’m starting to feel...
to have loved and lost, or to never have loved at...
Everyone has had people leave, we can all agree that it is painful. Moving on or grieving is a sad process. So what is it? To have loved and lost, or to never have loved at all? John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one...
Ong Ngoai (aka Grandpa)
I wrote this that year. He was the first family member that I’ve lost. R.I.P Rest in Paradise January 18, 1933 - August 28, 2008 We LOVE YOU!! & you will be missed! You were definitely a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather! I am thankful for the days that we have spent together and the special times we have shared. You were kind and loving and also a GREAT...
That one night..
Awhile ago something happened.. Not many know about it and I struggled… I used this event to write for my personal statement to get into Business School and I did have to tweak the story to make it fit the situation. The way I originally wrote it was all over the place and confusing, since at the time I was still figuring it out for myself. It had to be clear and concise. Knowing that my...
I just finished my advising appointment with my business adviser. Since I was just admitted to the Foster School of Business, I needed to figure out my plan of when to take certain core classes and such. We made my graduation plan… Looking at this one piece of paper seriously makes me scared. I’m nervous & in shock! My time at UW is coming to an end… It feels like I just...
What an AWESOME day indeed.
Today was truly just a good day! I am so thankful for all the events that happened today! :] Being able to see people ;], having good laughs, and getting one step closer to your goals. I’m so thankful that I got into business school. I really didn’t know what I would’ve done if I didn’t. Now that I have, new doors are opening and a new chapter of life begins. I...

free from fear of ridicule.
People don’t seem to realize how difficult and competitive business is. It might not seem much compared to other majors but in it’s own way it’s stressful. My schedule is light and easy now only because I took a lot of my pre reqs at running start. Running start helped take the load off of my first year and all I really had to worry about was applying and those few reqs that I...
been sitting here for awhile trying to put all down.. It’s tough to start thinking about the hard times in life. It’s generally the stuff that you don’t want to remind yourself of. But here I am having to write it down and make it sound good. Sigh* For business school!

I guess its finally time to share this weekend since I have mixed feelings about it. There were great moments and then there were some that don’t really make sense to me but that’s just how I feel. Friday: Like I said CRAZY NIGHT! but one reason I found it so fun and great was because people were actually there for me, celebrating me? If that makes sense. For awhile I’ve always...

Early Fall Start (Business Bridge Program)
*I’m finally typing this because I just finished my essay’s so now I consider myself done. For the past month, I have experienced a UW class environment and professional development workshops, oh and dorming in Lander. The writing class helped me realize that I had a lot of work to do. During this class, I constantly felt like I didn’t have a good foundation of writing skills...

As I was attempting to paint my nails and such today a series of things took place… First I spilled nail polish…. then after that… I spilled nail polish remover on myself…. then after that I knock over my nail stuff that is laying on my desk… WHAT IS THIS!!!

I do not handle heat well… Seriously I love the non rainy weather but DANG!! The sun always gives me a head ache! Most of the time in cars and stuff I feel like I can’t breathe because of the hot air or even when air conditioning is on! I feel so sloth-ish…. I just lay flat on my bed and do nothing since it’s freaking HOT! NOSE BLEEDS! UGh I hate those.. I recently...
I’ve been keeping a journal of my thoughts and it has really helped me keep my mind clear lately. I’ve been rereading this specific entry that I wrote: “I’ve usually had this go getter attitude where I’ve gone after the things that I want. Which has been forcing my way into peoples lives or forcing my way out. But after everything that has happened recently,...
Not satisfied with how my day has turned out. There were some upsides but a lot of downs. Sorta disappointed in myself.
