Last Post of The Year?!! I've reached the end of the year...can you believe it??? lol. And honestly...this has been the 2nd worst year of my life. I had a feeling it was going to be...from as soon as I had my first car accident January 1st 2008. Everything went wrong that matter how positive I tried to the back of my head kept thinking...this is a sign...this will be a destructive year...if not that wont be a good one. I had some good times this year...some great times...but the bad outweighed the good. Nevertheless, this is the year I learned the most and the best thing of all...I am a better person for it all...they say you learn the most through the worst of times. I learned...I'm just glad im alive ...sdtanding taller than before and smiling to tell the story.

Bring it on 2009! :)

Its The Best Movie Of The Year!

So I went to see the Curious Case of Benjamin Button on Christmas day and OMG! that movie is great! If you havent seen it...what is wrong with you...go! When I say its good...its good! Brings meaning to life and relates to evveryones might be long but I didnt even notice because the movie was so bomb. It really just lets us know that life is all about fate...what is destined to be...will cannot control fate so stop trying. Nevertheless, through it matter which route we take...we all die. The movie goes so in depth on many different points and I belive ths movie is being moved to one of my op 10...I just have to buy it when it comes out..and watch it a few more times to determine which spot it will take.

What up Queens, Manhattan, and Harlem

Ok so everyone does not need to be in New York lol. What an adventure it has been so! But I cannot lie it has been fun and funny all at the same time. For one, subway station attendants are miserable...but I kill em with kindness...and asians in New York are scavengers..scavengers...SCAVENGERS!!! Everything is life or death with them...they have to get on the subway before you... cross the street before you...and even eat breakfast before you!! Thats why for continental breakfast we go at exactly 7am when it starts so we can get food before they get there and take it all!!! hahaha. Anywho yesterday we took the subway through Queens...saw some cool grafitti...then got off in Manhattan on 5th ave....we walked up and down blocks til we reached central park and took lots of pictures. I wanted to ice skate but man...the line for the trump ice skating rink in central park...the one at Bryant Park...and the rockefeller center had lines that were so looong...crazy long....long like you arent gonna skate til 4 hours later So yea tha want gonna happen. After that we decided to go to check out the Apollo theatre, and check out the streets...oh soon as we got off the train...we were looked at like we were some juicy pieces of steak! We reached the street and cars pulled over. ...staring...talkin about come here..oh no!! We didnt want to seem like out of towners but I guess it was obvious...we had to cautiously take pictures. I was cracking up at Ariana because of how tight she was holding on to her purse...hahahahahah!!!! So yea we went to Time square after that and OMG...not one bit of space on the had to push past people (it brought out the bullies in some ppl i.e. Ariana haha...shoving ppl around). People pushing and yelling ....I just had to laugh...laugh at the frustrated ppl...while tightly holding my purse because pick pocketers were lingering ...(I could feel em trying to keep up with Esther. So whew! ..we got out of the craziness...and headed back to our hotel where we could lay feet were killing me! I passed out at like 9 something...which was 6 L.A. time...and now its New Years eve...more adventures to come!

I Met Kanye Again :)

We both were having a bad hair day but we get fresh when need be...huh Kanye? ......right! I love it when he smiles and chuckles and talks so cocky on the phone about all that he has. Its just him....yanno?
He got smart with me this time...but we laughed about
*He comes to my checkout with like 15 magazines...his friend has 15 as well*
Me: Would you like a bag? (I was nervous okay!!!
Kanye: I mean if someone has more than 10 magazines you would think...
*I begin laughing and he chuckles*
Me: But I have to
*I was gonna justify it by saying I have to ask but his friend interrupted and said he was taking the bill*
*I continue to ring the magazines while Kanye continues to talk about one of his homes he hasnt had the privilege of staying at yet and he wants to for Christmas...some other stuff too but his face was distracting*
Friend pays and he depart...til next time...
Hey...he choses to come to my register everytime for a

Finals Ended...But The Stress Put In An Extra Day At Work

So....Wednesday December 17th was my last final right? Yep! Yay! pulled an allnighter with a group study review which really helped me Alot!!!! walked up that hill in what felt like 30 degree weather....hands frozen to the core. Got in the room..defrosted my hands for about 3 minutes and first began kicking that exams ass....then put in a little more punches here and there for an extra bit of effort. It ended and I was relieved! hallelujah! So it was then time to do laundry, clean m,y room, and pack in time to catch my 12:59pm train ride which was at 10:00am! So as you can imagine....I was running around on E! 15 min til train leaves Im on my way and ready to go! T and Mo are already waiting for me and we zoom...of course G street is closed so we have to take the long way. I get to the station at 12:58pm and I am getting ready to cry cuz I havent picked up my ticket to get on the train and the window is closed! Thankfully the man said I can do it on board. I get on the train with my 4 bags (which I call traveling light) and knock out. I awake around 3 (hungry and thirsty) when I hear "buses will not be departing from bakersfield due to a snow storm in the grapevine". AAAAAaaaaaaaaahhhhhh! Are you kidding me???? So of course I have to buy their 3 dollar water cuz Im about to faint....this cannot be happening to me...I need to be in LA. I get to Bakersfield and yes, they announce that you either wait til 6 and take a north train back where you came from or wait it out til the morning cuz all south freeways are closed. Of course I cant take the first option cuz THE MAN DIDNT EVEN COME TO ME SO I CAN CHECK IN SINCE I ARRIVED LATE its like im a little stowaway...amh. On top of that ...they announce they are providing everyone with tickets...which I dont have!!!!!!! *sigh* So I begin to my little corner in the train station...wondering what to do. My dad cant make it cuz the freeways are closed, and there is one way around it wwhich they say will take 6 hrs..and my dad has no gas money he says...and I cant get money to him cuz im tranded in the middle of nowhere (no disrespect to B-town ppl) and Im stuck here...hungry...what do I do?

So yea long story short... I get food (provided by this cute boy who took a taxi and got it for me), I get a place to rest and feel safe (Mo's house), and my dad arrives at 2am taking the 6 hour trip(where he got money??? idk). We sleep...wake up after 2 reporters hawking us and ppl around....grapevine was still closed so we took the long a flat tire 4 hours into it....police man stopped and helped...we were on our way and I was HOME! Whew! Crazy huh?

P.S. We took a girl from fresno state and a girl from hombolt state home too since we went back to the train station cuz a group of girls who offered me a room witht them in a hotel had my number but tw of them left two behind (friends?)...but thats a whole other post...that I dont feel like posting about....strangers were cool until...DRAMA!...lets just say I did my share of seasons giving.

Ready, Set, Go!

College Christmas

Just what I am about to endure...this made me

Twas the night before finals, 
And all through the college,
The students were praying
For last minute knowledge.
Most were quite sleepy,
But none touched their beds,
While visions of essays
danced in their heads.
Out in the taverns,
A few were still drinking,
And hoping that liquor
would loosen up their thinking.
In my own apartment,
I had been pacing,
And dreading exams
I soon would be facing.
My roommate was speechless,
His nose in his books,
And my comments to him
Drew unfriendly looks.
I drained all the coffee,
And brewed a new pot,
No longer caring
That my nerves were shot.
I stared at my notes,
But my thoughts were muddy,
My eyes went ablur,
I just couldn't study.
"Some pizza might help,"
I said with a shiver,
But each place I called
Refused to deliver.
I'd nearly concluded
That life was too cruel,
With futures depending
On grades had in school.
When all of a sudden,
Our door opened wide,
And Patron Saint Put It Off
Ambled inside.
Her spirit was careless,
Her manner was mellow,
She started to bellow:
"What kind of student
Would make such a fuss,
To toss back at teachers
What they tossed at us?"
"On Cliff Notes! On Crib Notes!
On Last Year's Exams!
On Wingit and Slingit,
And Last Minute Crams!"
Her message delivered,
She vanished from sight,
But we heard her laughing
Outside in the night.
"Your teachers have pegged you,
So just do your best.
Happy Finals to All,
And to All, a good test."

It Is Complete!

Dun... dun...duuuuunnnnn

Here is the ABC Newsletter that it took me so long to put together because contacting every UC, finding out who their Rep is and trying to get information from all of them was hard. Then making it look somewhat like a newsletter through formatting, putting it in PDF and then trying to convert PDF to HTML...oh boy. But it is complete and now I have to start working on the one for January... Enjoy!

Note/ Reminder: I am not a journalist...I am a Biology/Chemistry major in hopes of becoming a pharmacist. I am just the communications coordinator for the upcoming ABC Conference so if you say I have no future in journalism...I already Thank you.
