Goodbye Mr. Bingley November 11, 2009

Filed under: Warrior's exploration — asianwarrior @ 6:11 am

After some reconsideration and cost analysis….I have decided Mr. Bingley will not work. Mr. Bingley is my future retriever that I was planning to adopt from the animal shelter.  He is not a specific dog, I was just planning to name which ever dog I get Mr. Bingley. I wanted Mr. Bingley because dogs are so much more useful than cats. They can watch over your house, prevent thrift, take a walk with you, and actually love you and be loyal. This is how I came to the conclusion that it is a dead dream. First of all, I don’t take walks. And then these other grievances came along. Dogs are high maintenance. I don’t like the smell of dogs. I don’t want Mr. Bingley to be in my bed with me. I hate it when dogs get excited and create a victim by excessive salivation. My alternative was a tiny dog, a chiwawa or anything. So why not get a cat then? Don’t need to bath them. They are satisfied with themselves and don’t need social company. Easy.

So in the memorial of Mr. Bingley, I will not re-use his name. I shall name my future cat Mr. Darcy. I think Mr. Bingley in personality is more a dog and vice versa for Mr. Darcy. I am excited for Mr. Darcy’s arrival next fall. heartssssss

 

I’m just that into you November 4, 2009

Yes I love you sooooo much Jay Chou….I know……this is completely creepy…whatever! I vowed to marry him since middle school! I do what I want, he do what I want! Hahaha Jk…..

After a series of horrid events—HON social( thanks Sriyutha you made it, I heart you), genetics test, poli sci paper, job interviewing ( which was actually quite fun), bumping into many objects due to my poor driving skills ( thank budda no major damages…..), gaining f***ing like 20 pounds, catching the flu from some incompetent people, missing two classes, losing my doctor’s note, getting a 125 dollar fine from the library for a book that clearly says its due date is January 2010, using toilet paper to blow my nose because I am too lazy to go to Wal-Mart,and worst of all, the tofu I bought at Market Street was bad—I still manage to be alive and  in my usual ecstatic mood.

And my usual food pictures…..I cannot recall what else I’ve eaten for the past 2 weeks……I should just bring my camera with me 24/7

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.

 

Van Gogh? October 6, 2009

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! =)

To start my semester, I would like to share some of my favorite quotes from Jane Austen and Confucious.

Here it goes:

I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal.

My idea of good company is the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company.

One half of the world cannot understand the pleasures of the other.

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

A superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.

Never contract friendship with a man that is not better than thyself.

No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance

Study the past, if you would divine the future.

The firm, the enduring, the simple, and the modest are near to virtue.

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

There are three methods to gaining wisdom. The first is reflection, which is the highest. The second is limitation, which is the easiest. The third is experience, which is the bitterest.

I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.

To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it.

To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue; these five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

Wisdom, compassion, and courage are the three universally recognized moral qualities of men.

Without feelings of respect, what is there to distinguish men from beasts?

I have100% admiration for Jane Austen. The delightfullness of indulging myself in her books and plots! Thy shall suffer from the lack of such prodigious masterpiece.
