Looking back at all of my tumblr posts about love and relationships, I find it so ironic. Didn’t expect to find him so soon…Mr. Right, I mean. Nor did I expect that it’d be the dude I’d see in IKEA’s restaurant and break room every now and then for the past 2+ years. I’m excited to see what this guy has in store for me, and what the future has in store for us. He always keeps me guessing…always keeps throwing me off with pleasant surprises…romantic ass dude. Shit…haha. I got a good one.
and decided it’s more effective to say it with a llama.
My LA getting all up in that LA. Can’t wait to see you guys murk em and rep Seattle.
that I wouldn’t mind going on a date with a certain few of my guy friends (separately of course lol), kissing them because they’re just oh so sweet, and then just wanting to be back to friends afterwards like nothing really happened?
Damn hormones. That’s what drunk dials/confessions/kisses are for. LOL “oh sorrryyy I was just soooooo drunk I didn’t know what I was doing!” No justification necessary. ohp :o
HAHAHAHAHHA shit, Pat’s so smart. Good find, Nhi.
So there’s this boy…and he’s kinda fuckin driving me crazy. It’s been a few weeks and I’ve never been so impatient. If it were any other dude I just met I would’ve forgotten about him by now and moved on to some other. But unfortunately he’s not…we go way back, waaaaay back. It’s been years though, so I’ve just been so curious about him ever since we finally reunited last month. He was supposed to take me out on a date, but he’s been claiming to be really busy with work and such. I told him to just hit me up when he’s ready, but like I said, it’s been a few weeks since we talked about it. So I don’t know if he actually still wants to, or if he’s bullshitting and I’m just wasting my time. A part of me wants to hit him up to find out, but another part of me doesn’t want to bother him or seem desperate. I feel like I’m in a bit of a pickle. But I think it’s safe to say that I’m pretty determined to make it happen eventually. If not now, later, which may be a few months or a few years. At least just one date, ONE date. Then I could be at peace with this kid, my first childhood crush. I know if I don’t eventually make it happen, I’ll always wonder. And that’s one of the worst feelings ever. Regardless of the outcome, I have to just try before I regret not doing so or before it’s too late (aka, another girl snatching him up). As of now though, I just wanna know if there’s something actually worth being patient for or not.
Britney is spot on with this one…shit I hope he never reads this, LOL.
Don’t get me wrong, I consider myself pretttty smart, but by no means would I ever consider myself a genius.
1. My major. Which is Human-Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE). Every time I tell people what my major is they’re always like “Wait what? Wow, that sounds really hard…” Not as hard as you think, sucka! HCDE is not your typical engineering major. It actually used to be just Technical Communication in 2007 or so, but then they decided to broaden the curriculum of the department and make it more interdisciplinary, branching into other fields such as informatics and design. They changed the name to HCDE and provided two main degree options: Human Computer Interaction (which is what I’m doing) and Technical Communication. Rather than getting into the mechanics and science of engineering, HCDE is more of the study of engineering and design and how users’ needs are currently addressed or not addressed, and how we can improve engineering/design to accommodate their needs.
2. My choice of classes in college. My easiest class ever was INFO 100, total joke. Got a 102/100 on the final project. Like really? Haha. I managed to avoid taking chemistry altogether, which is pretty unheard of for an engineering major. I made such an effort to avoid it because I honestly didn’t want to deal with those 3-hour labs. My mentality: I commute bitch, I don’t have time for that! My major gave me flexibility in choose what math and science classes to take; I just had to choose from a list they had. The general chemistry courses were on the list, but so were biology and atmospheric sciences. So I took a few of those courses instead. Suckas, muahaha. Because I commuted and did extracurriculars, I didn’t want to overload myself will difficult science classes, especially when I didn’t HAVE to.
3. My grades. 3.996 GPA in high school, and I graduated with the IB Diploma (certificate that requires taking about 10 college-level classes throughout junior and senior year and a 4000 word essay). Genius? NOT REALLY haha. Do mind that I went to a Kent public school. My IB classes were pretty hard/time-consuming, but I just did my work and studied a bunch to get A’s in them (minus IB Chem…A-…SKAGENNN, fucked my 4.0 up! -_-). I only did the Diploma to challenge myself and get some college credit. I also felt obliged to, being in the Top 10 of my class, which I guess makes me sound hella smart haha. My success in high school was just due to using my head and doing my work when I was supposed to. My GPA now in college is 3.4, which is pretty good. But I’ve only gotten two 4.0’s throughout my college career, and that was in my first quarter ever. My lowest grade was a 2.4 in BIO 180, a 700-student class…HATED that fucking class. The tests were horrible, but the instructors were probably also just horrible. Ugh, the worst experience. I took that class during my second quarter of junior year, so my 3.87 quickly turned into a 3.48. Whatever, shit happens, my fault. Haha still, FUCK.
THE REALITY: My vocabulary knowledge is mediocre, therefore I have trouble reading a lot of the readings I have to do for class. Sometimes the material is too deep/difficult for me to grasp, so in these instances I feel hella dumb during class discussion when my peers pull out some insightful, philosophical shit. Sometimes I get hella bored in classes totally unrelated to my interests because I don’t really give a crap about what we’re learning. There have been several times when I have dozed off in class and missed half of the lecture. I’ve had friends/tutors help me understand entire concepts I’ve been clueless about. I’m like any other “normal” student in these aspects. So people are terribly mistaken when they think I’m too smart for them, or for my own good. Wanna be “smart” like me? Just do your shit, mang. Do all you can to succeed and you’re there.
