. . . . . . . . My cousin Alex is getting married at age twenty six. He has known Eva since their early college career. They are absolutely adorable together and I wish them the best. First marriage in my generation, Alex is the oldest of my cousins and first to get married. My other cousin Kockraoch( thats his nickname…ofcourse) is planning to get married in the coming year. It is such an eccentric feeling to see my closest family, my childhood playmate, and my ever lasting friend going through this life changing milestone. Six years, what is six years? Six years is how long it takes to finish middle school, to finish college plus grad school. Six years is how long WWII lasted. When Alex first met Eva, has he ever thought he will marry her six years later? Six years ago I was thirteen years old, second grade in middle school, studying hard for my high school entrance exam. Never would I expect myself in US for college. Where will I be six years later? Will I be in a graduate program that I am working hard for right now? Will Obama still be the president?  Will my brother be in China still? Will I look back to today and read this post and say to myself: wow…I have changed so much?

. . . . . . . . Time flies. Minute by minute, day by day. The way time abruptly disappears is breath taking. I want to scream, scream at the ocean, scream to the sky. Scream at the bewildered person in the mirror.

. . . . . . . . Life is a game, indeed. As a kid, I was a fan of Sims, a simulation game of life. Bought all the add-ons and devoted all my energy and time. One day I came to my senses and realized how naive I was. Why control my character to take a shower, do homework, read, eat, watch TV when I myself need to and am able to do that in real life? Complete irony. Since then I have lost all my enthusiasm for all types of computer games. I have the best game, its called life.

. . . . . . . In this game of life, I am under the jurisdiction of time. It forces me to tear off  new calender pages when I desperately glue them back. I can look ahead, I can only to look ahead. The excitement, the joy, the misery, and the hope, it belongs to the future. Nothing belongs to the past,  only memories and lessons to learn. So why look back? It disables you to look ahead. Looking back only means you long for the past. What good is it to look back and stop going forward? Past will not come back, but future is waiting, waiting to be created. Future will never give up on you, so don’t you dare give up on it.

. . . . . . . . What is my future? Get married, have kids, work, and die? There will be excitement, family drama, political chaos, lay offs, raises, wars, peace, love? I am grateful for my easy life, for having such an amazing family, such supportive parents,such wonderful friends, such fabulous country. Because of these, I enjoy my life, sincerely do. I cannot say that I will be happy in a different situation. I know I will not. Farmers in China, in India, even in US. Their kids will never get a decent education. They will not be able to afford college. They will be farmers, generation after generation. Yes, you can argue that since they have never been wealthy, they will be happy. They have never seen the real world, they will be fine with what they have. They can work their way, its a fair game. That is BULLSHIT.  I know I am lucky. I enjoy my life because challenges that I will otherwise face are removed, they do not exist. Indefinitely, I should live my life happily. Enjoy it, conquer it, triumph it.

. . . . . . . . What is my life? How do I conquer it? I want to be free. Free from stereotyping, free from the predetermined. I want to be successful. Successful in that I wake up everyday knowing I have done the right things, no regrets, only elation. I can see myself in six year. I will tell the future me: keep going, you are destined to do so, keep going forward.

Instinctively I crawled back to bed when the alarm set and my first breath of fresh air was notably cold. Freezing to be more exact. The neuron circuit in my brain was calculating which action would be less painful— sleep ten more minutes and rush out to my car in thirty seconds, or give up the precious sleeping time for the risk of heart diseases in my old age. The neurons decided sleeping has an absolute advantage, and the opportunity cost was fairly low.

After dropping Alissia off school, Sriyutha and I went to Barnes and Noble in search for a daily planner. We were aghast to find all the planners and notebooks cleared out due to a relocation purpose. Oh well, a new Barnes and Noble can only be described as deluxe. We soon found new pleasure drenched in isles of 50% off clearances. We treated ourselves with five dollar cook books, and imagined ourselves devouring the pages of professionally photographed foods. After arriving home, I ordered a daily planner from amazon and added a GMAT practice book along with it. The day started amazingly since my planner was on its journey to acquaint me and ease my chaotic and catastrophic life. Room cleaned, laundry done, notes organized; now I just need to bury myself in numerous papers and journals and text books.

On the way back from picking Alissia up from school, we went to Wal-mart since she needed a poster for her español project. Due to our long desire for a sandwich maker and waffle maker, we have decided to stop by and see if the cheapest ones were in stock. Astonishingly it was, both for $9.49! Ten dollar machines!? Luxury indeed, especially for a destitute college student. =) I grabbed a bag of grapes thinking it would at the very least last two day….it it completely gone now…in my stomach…hehe. I strongly believe my genetics text book is hailing me. =) Until next time, from a devastated Homo sapien.

After Sherlock made bean burgers last week, I have decided today was a good day to make some. It is soooooo good! So boil some pinto beans and add whole wheat flour and some sauce, fry it and add cheese, mustard, KETCHUP, and whole wheat bread.

We get Monday and Tuesday off for fall break!!!( Dumpling still has school though, hehe) !!!

Classes are posted for next semester! Love picking classes. That’s basically what I’ve done all day. Possibly having Tuesday and Thursday off next semester. That way I can FINALLY find a job as a pharmTech. I passed the exam when I graduated from high school and am lazy enough to not use my license for almost two years! Shame shame.

Weather in Lubbock is becoming unbearable! Tomorrow we are hosting a pot luck. You are welcomed if you are hot! Bring your favorite food! See ya 😉

 

Autumn? October 8, 2009

100_7327Finally my favorite season is here! I can wear cute winter cloths~~~ woo hoo!

Soooooooooooooooooooo……yesterday was remarkably terrible! I was SUPER nervous and excited about donating blood. HOWEVER, I got turned down! (Wha!!! oh please take my blood??!!) I wasn’t able to give blood in high school since I was under 110 pounds. Now that I have grown tremendously in width, they have raised their standard for my height to 120! I took Charlie with me and I had to “watch” him donate. Boooo. (p.s.Charlie saved 3 ppl! You are a hero!)

If I pretend to be 5’5 and 115……humm…..I shall do that. Anyway, I have never fainted before, experience is always good.

Some food I’ve killed this week ( with my infamous warrior spirit)

My breakfast this morning~~~ yumm~~~Poping the blueburries is super fun

Van Gogh? October 6, 2009

Filed under: Warrior's exploration — asianwarrior @ 6:56 pm

Many people have notebooks and calenders to keep lives in order, to prevent entropy and chaos. I, too, love keeping notebooks! One of my philosophy teachers had introduced to me the amazing Moleskine notebooks. COMPLETELY in love with such a classic notebook dear I say! Moleskine notebooks are legendary not just because it was used by people like Van Gogh and Picasso, but it has high quality paper with a classic look.

Aside from keeping my agenda and to-do-list, I scribble in them. =)

And……since I am using this same very notebook that was used by Van Gogh, I shall not disappoint him! My super long to-do list will not be put off until tomorrow. That means, coffee. Absolutely adore coffee with LOTs of milk! ( powder milk is the best with coffee)

Good night readers and farewell to 1/5 of my blood cells. I have set a goal to donate three times a year and tomorrow will be my first time donating blood! =)

 

Race like a warrior October 5, 2009

Filed under: Devour Baker Street — asianwarrior @ 11:30 pm

Hola,
Did everyone go to race for the cure? We are destined to make this world a better place. =)
yours,
Anastasia

Tech vs. UNM. This game is amazing! GO TECH GO TECH. Football players are too cute.

Monstrous mistake made when I decided to eat breakfast one hour prior to Race for the Cure.
Usually I can run 3 miles in 30 minutes without stopping. I was aiming to do that today. Unfortunately, my breakfast decision had led me to walk through most of the race. On top of that, Sherlock slept through the race! Where is thy support?!

Support breast cancer research! You can make a difference! I arrived home and decided that another bowl of fried rice and one fried egg and four servings of fried green onion eggs ( 2 whole eggs+ 2 egg whites + lots of green onion) and 5 (!!??) pears and two apples would increase her brain cells’ ability.




Just when I decided no more food for the rest of the day, Sherlock and Dumpling made butternut squash fries!
Another 3 mile run was needed for the day!

Duty of the day

  • Finish reading the Time Traveler’s wife
  • Do notes for genetic/analytical chemistry/biology
  • Research for bridging the gap between science and humanities
  • Reach Ch5 of PoliSci
  • Read the Wallstreet Journal and economist
  • clean room
  • do laundry!!
  • STOP EATING
