so its week 10 of school coming up. what does that mean? the fall quarter is coming to an end. soooo, what else does it mean? FINALS. oh my. lol. so im going to block tumblr and facebook until finals are over on Dec 7th. i dont post as much anyways, but i still like to scroll. therefore, its still a distraction. lol. so see you guys around! :D
Never aim for the best. Instead, always strive for the better.
i suppose thats now my new motto. if you think about it, if you aim for the “best”, thats only as far as you will ever get. it just stops there. you know, at the best. it means that youve put a cap, a limit on your potential. but do you really want to just stop there? youll just reach the “best” and youll just stay that way forever. isnt that..boring? thats why instead, always strive for the better. why? it just means that you can always go higher and higher. no ones gonna stop you. nothings gonna hold you back. just go for it.
dont ever forget that sometimes, YOU, yourself can be wrong.
drop your pride for once. it doesnt hurt to admit that youre wrong at times. no ones perfect right? so why try to fight as if youre always right? nothing good is ever going to come out of it. always remember that you can be wrong at times. the first step is always realizing and admitting your mistakes, once you do that, you can learn, and in turn, grow as an individual.
so dont be a butt, and everything will turn out fine. be the mature adult youre supposed to me.
nowadays i really dont care about what people do against me. i mean, if they can stoop so low, why should i care all the more? think of it this way, if i cant be worth their efforts, then why should i exert mine on them? things happen. people will be loyal, while at the same time, others will betray you. no biggie. it happens, its life, its not perfect. since its life, you just grow to realize that you really need to pick out what really matters to you. what really is worth your time and efforts. nowadays i’ll just confront the person calmly, forgive, and move on. if it happens again, then there absolutely is no excuse. sucks them then.
i may not fully understand this censorship law and its purposes, but i honestly believe that the government should be focusing on other things. such as our debt problem. i mean come on, there are things more important, like our education. like the 81% tuition hike over the next couple of years for the UC system? no bueno. with that money, maybe ten years ago, that projected tuition would have fully paid for maybe two or three kids. -_-
I thought some time alone was what we really needed you said this time would hurt more than it helps but I couldn’t see that I thought it was the end of a beautiful story and so I left the one I loved at home to be alone and I tried to find out if this one thing is true that I’m nothing without you I know better now and I’ve had a change of heart
I’d rather have bad times with you than good times with someone else I’d rather be beside you in a storm than safe and warm by myself I’d rather have hard times together than to have it easy apart I’d rather have the one who holds my heart
so today, i was unexpectedly hanging out with an old friend of mine today. and we just started talking normally, started cracking up out of nowhere, and eventually even vented a little here and there. honestly, its times like these that reassure me about my friendship with someone. though we may have had some misunderstandings in the past, as you can see, it gets better. it might not be instant. it might not be tomorrow, next week, next month, or even next year, but eventually, it gets where it needs to be, at the right time.
so no rush, just as long as you do your work, theres not much to worry about.
theres just so many to count. where does one begin? its been one hell of a ride the past 18 years of my life. yeah, its had its fair share of ups and downs, but through it all, i stuck it out, and well, i made it. i freaking made it. look at where i am now. its really hard to believe, even i, myself, cannot believe that im now 18. 18?! really? i look like im 15/16! lol. but anyways, it wasnt easy getting here, but it wasnt exactly difficult either. you just gotta keep your head up. you’ll make it. you’ll see the end of the tunnel. you’ll live. you’ll learn. you’ll grow. things may not have always gone my way, but it has most definitely gone the way it was supposed to. things went the right way. you win some, you lose some right?
moving onto the next chapter of life, i know i have much more to face. BUT ive got nothing to lose, and everything to gain, as long as God is with me. i have nothing to fear. i got this. LEGGO.
thank you to everyone for making this day one to remember!
its well known that people come and go, and in a sense, you get used to it. its true, people are only in your lives to serve a certain “purpose.” its not in the sense that youre using them, rather in the sense that theyre there for you learn, to grow, to live. it might be unclear or difficult to understand at first, but after a while, things seem to just fit together on this huge puzzle of life.
so for me, its quite alright if someone who “left” suddenly comes back in again. its all good, a little catching up isnt all too bad. let the memories come rushing back. (:
life of a college student. mayuuun. im doing all my hw for the week ahead of time so i could enjoy my three day school week and four day weekend coming up! AWESOOOME. but the studying and doing hw is LAAAME.
i hate this. i hate feeling all the guilt in the world when it comes to anything and everything. when something happens, i tend to blame myself often. even if it isnt my fault, i’ll say it is my fault. especially when it comes to people, it always seems like i have to give in first. when i KNOW for sure, that i did nothing wrong, i’ll try to let them come to me first to make a move, but it never happens. why? because eventually i’ll build up enough “guilt”, and i’ll say sorry, or i’ll be the one to fix things again. -_-
it isnt about who’s wrong or who’s right, its about willing to make ends meet, about willing to drop your pride, about willing to compromise. by doing so, there wont be a single doubt in your mind that the two of you will make it. its not the happiness that will completely define a bond, but what the two have to go through, and the way they handle it truly proves the strength of their bond. are you gonna give up, or go the extra mile?
At some point you will realize that you have done too much for someone, that the only next possible step to do is to stop. Leave them alone. Walk away. It’s not like you’re giving up, and shouldn't try. It’s just that you have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours would eventually be yours, and what is not, no matter how hard you try, will never be.
There’s a difference between giving up and realizing youve had enough. Giving up is calling it quits, having no more hope at all in the situation. Realizing you’ve had enough? It’s knowing that there’s still a chance of revival, but you also know that you’ve had enough, and just think that you just need a break. It’s knowing that you can’t tolerate much more. Standing up for yourself, making the other person realize things too.
I deserve better than this. This is a two way effort, come on.
