Nap substitute
Barely functional this morning from recent lack of sleep.
Gave 2 presentations to high school students trying to get them interested in medicine.
Wanted to take a nap really badly but instead chose to run with the running group.
Did 4 miles, quit on the rest of the team by cutting the run short 1 mile.
Came back and ate 1/2 a slab of teriyaki eel with broccoli.
Now I'm really awake, refueled, and ready to rock >:] BRING IT ONNNNNNNNN.

I want a pet dragon!
"How to Train Your Dragon" was awesome. I'm usually a big sucker for kiddy movies already, but this one was especially good. It was the perfect balance of epic adventures, humor, emotion, happy, sad... and for those of you who have already seen the movie, you must agree that the ending was very well done (happy but not overly perfect and overly happy ending).

No time for a long update. I've got stuff to do in lab now.

I'm thinking about making a stuffed Toothless :) Night Furies are the bombshizzlenitz!

Spring Break Reflections
My mother is driving me back to UCLA right this very moment. This ride marks the end of my very last college Spring Break. Even though I spent a majority of my break at my dad’s restaurant, I still had a lot of fun every time I saw my friends, even if it was just a quick yogurt run or a lunch at Starlight. :)

Before the Unfuckables Camping trip, I was told that I was too excited. I’m just as excited now, actually. We didn’t do much in terms of crazy outdoorsy activities, but as long as I got to chill with all my friends and at the same time admire the beauty of nature, 我已經超滿足的了! I realized that I suck at walkie talkie commands. I wanted to butt into Galen and whoever was on the other end during their strange walkie talkie battle but all I can come up with is 10-4, roger that, do you copy… O_O Lame! HAHA! I also such at come-backs. I was called a hemorrhoid andIdidn’t even know how to respond to it. OIGH!

Following the camping trip, I was stuck at the restaurant, but at least one friend would come see me every single day. Victor showed up the most, haha. Thanks man :D Aside from Victor, I also saw Angela, Galen, Venus, Steven, Taki, Gin, and Jonah. It may not seem like a big deal to others, but it means a whole lot to me to see you all come and support my dad’s business (and to keep me company)… 我真的很感動!It made all the working worth it (連發燒都值得).

Speaking of the restaurant, I want to thank everyone for being concerned about me, but I just want to let you all know that I willingly contribute to the family and I volunteered to work at the restaurant. Karen was willing to work too, but since she’s less experienced, we don’t feel comfortable leaving her at the restaurant alone. Sometimes we can get pretty difficult customers, and Karen’s too shy and nice to deal with those *^#@#$%. I’m glad I worked during the break though. It makes me really appreciate what my dad does. He does this 365 days a year to support the family.

My daddy came back Friday night, and Karen graciously came to sub in for me so I left the restaurant early for a yogurt run with my obento (+Gene) lovers. The most memorable part of that hangout was Jessica’s “bad kisses” anecdote. Thanks Jess, I’ll watch out for the woodpeckers, slobbering dogs, pacman biters, or dead fish tongues. 雖然是很噁心,可是我覺得很好笑啊!

Oh boy, Saturday… KTV… was INSANE!!!! I have NEVER been so high before! I mean, for those of you who have seen me at KTV in the past, I’m usually pretty darn crazy, but this time, it was 全場失控了!可能是因爲我們 (Me, Karen, Angela, Shirley, and Victor) 一點都不顧形像地唱。 We pinched our noses to sing Britney Spears songs, belted out Bon Jovi and Aerosmith, sang with eunich-like falsettos (maybe that was victor only), and did a damn good job at imitating Celine Dion’s funky enunciations. XD

Prince of Persia?
It’s the new Jake Gyllenhaal movie. I just saw the poster on the side of the building on Wilshire. The Alice in Wonderland poster just got replaced I guess… I heard bad things about that movie btw. People say that its like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory meets Narnia. Oh bugger.

We have arrived at our destination.

Koo, OUT.

在這幾年,我很遺憾沒有多做一點義工,可是我發覺大學生做義工的時候,都不是帶著想幫助別人的愛心,而是爲了讓以後的application 或 resume 好看一點。

每到淩晨三四點的時候,房號100 的主客和他們一大堆朋友都會聚在走廊裏很大講大笑。


不過,我剛剛去了打一個半小時的 cardioboxing, 然後挑了兩個鐘頭中國舞,我的心情好多了!
可是。。。 我改開始讀書了。。。

S.H.E fanatic
Yes, I am not at all ashamed to admit that I am utterly obsessed with a Taiwanese girl band whose fans mostly range from ages 9 to 14.  People who know anything about S.H.E must also agree though that their personalities are very refreshing, and even though they may not be the best singers or dancers, they are certainly very VERY entertaining :).

I had a lot of fun yesterday @ KTV, especially since my sister and I pretty much spammed S.H.E songs like no other. I was rather disappointed that they didn't have 只對你有感覺, or 可愛萬歲 (image above is from the music video) because I totally would've jumped up and danced along with the music video without hesitation (yeah i know the sequence...)!!! Karen would've done it with me too XD

It was kind of a bummer that I had to leave early :3 but it was fun nonetheless.

I heard that S.H.E may be touring to Las Vegas... I HOPE IT'S TRUE!!! If not, I will fly to Taiwan and catch their S.H.E is the One concert MOO HAHAHAHAHA! Anyhow, I strongly recommend that you all watch 就想賴著妳. http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Down_With_Love... OH YEAH and don't forget to buy the REAL DVD. DO NOT BOOTLEG! SUPPORT SUPPORT!!! hahaha :)

*** EDIT***

But of course, as a slapping reminder that another of week of school has just begin, I just inhaled pure carbon dioxide by accident (in lab) and my lungs burned like no other. ><

朋友們,我好感謝你們對我的關心!我最近看可能是因爲壓力太大,所以才會胡思亂想吧。。。 對不起,我又讓你們擔心了。
由於我上一次提過的 “缺一點點”
可是,我發覺我好無聊,突然會迷上愛情故事 哈哈哈!




我昨天去捐血了~ 感覺很好的, 因爲我知道我那麽小小的行爲可以就三條命。還有,我雖然不知道我的血最後是個誰的,可是我很高興我所付出的都有人會收到。

Haha... I guess I have a bit of Sawako in me... ^_^ It's kinda sad that I was able to relate to her as I marathoned 17 episodes of Kimi ni Todoke in 2 nights.

Throughout elementary school, middle school, and even high school, I have very rarely stuck to a single crowd of friends. I can't even call anyone my long-time buddy from way-back-when, because I have lost contact with most of my old friends (or have simply been forgotten by them). A lot of the problem isn't from the other people, but rather from myself. I don't have the confidence in myself to believe that I am a worthy friend. I always felt... dispensable. I'm afraid to consider any person a close friend to me because I fear that they do not feel the same way about me.

That is, until I was picked up off the hallways of AHS by an eccentric group called the Obento. I have to admit, I felt like such an intruder at first because I hardly knew anyone in the group, and yet everyone already seemed so close to each other!

Annie: Sketching/ anime buddy. Shared a summer of Bio with her... sketching, evading room E4 mice, and NOT learning bio. She literally walked into the classroom the first day and said, "hey! You're Michelle Tang's friend!" and sits right next to me. I'm so glad that happened <3.
Jessica: Also had a few classes with her, but she was more of a friend of a friend at the time.
Ruby: I had a few classes with her in the past and I've worked on projects with her before, but it wasn't until we started hanging out @ excel did I really get to know her.
Victor: The dude at excel who hangs around with Ruby. I really have to thank him for making me feel so at home with the Obento :). Thanks man. :D
Angela: Girl from freshman PE who was obsessed with Shadowfax. Always wore a ponytail in freshman year, but switched to short hair in senior year. 
Steven: (somewhat unapproachable) guy from Tucker's class and SMW secretary responsible for marking all the Orchesis girls absent at almost every meeting/event.
Shirley, Jay, Alan and Nina: They were friends of friends, but I didn't really know them yet.

And even though I was clearly a "new addition" to the group, I felt so comfortable with everyone. I was invited to all the events (one of the most memorable being the chaotic caroling night) and I always looked forward to lunchtime because I got to see everyone (shhh but I, Prez of Red Cross Club at the time, frequently ditched lunch meetings because I preferred being at the obento table during lunch than in a biology classroom).

I don't even know why I doubt this friendship at all. I love all of you, and I really should not doubt that you all care about me. Thank you Jessica for reminding me to have faith in my friends. THANK YOU!

 Every year around this time, the "girl" within Jenny just seeps out a bit. Even Jenny longs for someone to surprise her, someone to give her a giant fuzzy teddy (and yes, people who know me probably realize that I prefer cuddly stuff over flowers/chocolate) and just to say "will you be my valentine?"

But just when I begin to lose faith and feel doomed to live a loveless life, I just watch a Taiwanese drama and find myself all cheered up again. Because in dramas, boy usually meets girl in the most haphazard manner. There's always an element of surprise and spontaneity :). I know that 99.9999% of romantic plots from 偶像劇 are very unlikely to happen in real life, it just makes me happy to even think about such possibility. 

I'm just glad that Valentine's Day is also Chinese New Year this year. 
"well, it's not that I don't have anyone to celebrate V-day with, I just chose to spend Chinese New Year with my family over celebrating some Hallmark Holiday... :)"

LOVE. HA. Whatever.

上個星期真的讓我崩潰了, 可是幸好我在星期六去了滑雪板。 雖然我的決定害到我整個周末都沒有讀書,而且我這個星期又要考試,又要做presentation, 不過我很開心我現在滑雪板滑得蠻好的。連我都覺得我自己很棒啊!(一般來説,我很少說我自己好話)那種成功感真的難而形容!!!

最可惜的就是我還沒有成功鼓勵我的朋友陪我一起去玩。 我已經差不多每個周末都去,可是我的朋友們忙得不得了,沒空去滑雪。我有點傷心,有點失望。。。我只是想在我們畢業前多花一點時間在一起。説不定,我們畢業後就各散東西。

每當我滑雪的時候,我就帶著很矛盾的心情。 在一方面,我很高興能夠滑得很好,可在另一方面,我很寂寞,很希望我可以和我的朋友們分享那一刻。。。

It all started with Steven's away message that said something about celebrating freedom at midnight and watching Buffy. Then Kim finishes her lab practical with Dr. Steven "Titty Titty Bang Bang" Kim. To celebrate, I decided to make French Bread (wtf?). I also like to bake/cook when I'm alone in the apartment. Takes my mind off the loneliness when Winnie's gone.

The recipe for the bread is ridiculously simple, but the wait time is SOOOO LONG. It was only after I started making it (circa 8PM) did I realize that I had to wait more than 4 hours... oops? I guess I should have read and thoroughly understood the protocol recipe before starting haha. I think I am improving my dough-kneading skills (thanks to the awesome youtube videos). I made a significantly smaller mess than I typically do in the past, and the bread was actually edible!!! (Actually, everyone really liked it, and that TOTALLY made my day <3)

Long story short, the visit was nice, and we had bread + giant grapefruit.

While some unhealthy individuals chose to satisfy their nicotine addiction, Kim and I raided their pantry to satisfy our caffeine addiction.

I'm tired but wired out O_O

its almost 2AM 


I'll call in sick for lab tomorrow. I've never done that before (for 3 years now!!!). Sick accrual? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA who am I kidding? I'm an undergrad...

*** edit: I ended up going to bed at 3AM and woke up at 7AM. :D yay me?

I am very annoyed right now because I wrote a decent-length post and it got deleted. POOoooo

The food truck industry has flourished in the past couple months, and this is evident in the Court of Sciences, where two different food trucks park in the middle of the courtyard and sell overpriced food to starving science geeks. I once denounced the idea of eating out of a cart, especially since the prices were so ridiculous, but I succumbed to the seductive powers of FishLips (sushi cart). The options today were Baby Burger and FishLips, and since I have always been a huge fan of sushi, it was not hard deciding which cart to go to.

Plus, the Baby Burger truck was obnoxiously pink. And it had an obnoxiously shiny pink disco ball hanging outside of the truck. And there was an obnoxious blonde waitress in all black and a hot pink sash taking orders right outside of the truck. I don't endorse sex appeal, so I didn't like the idea of giving my order to a scantily-clad waitress. But FishLips was sexy to me... in a much different way. 

I got the Spicy Tuna Set (image below):

This is the first time I've ever has Temari... it's basically sashimi on a ball of rice. Same concept as your typical sushi, but much cuter. :)

Hopping on the Horoscopes band-wagon
Today the theme of your day will be self-reliance. As much as you treasure your friends and family, you will be aware today that your most important decisions are made by you only, and only you suffer the consequences of those decisions. Therefore, focus on your decision-making abilities today and trust your natural instinct. You are more capable than you allow yourself to believe.

WHAT ARE THE STARS SAYING?! At this point, I'm not even sure if my "top choice" med school really is MY top choice med school... So many other factors have kicked in... including: proximity to family, cost, ranking...

and yet I gave lowest priority to perhaps the most important factor: how much did I like the school when I interviewed there?

WELLLLllllll then again if the three remaining schools I am waiting to hear from all reject me, then I won't have a problem making up my mind because I would technically not have much of a choice :3
