Counting Cars

I counted all the blue cars and Amy counted all the red ones. I was winning, but then Amy saw a FedEx truck and shouted, "FedEx I win!!!!!" I couldn't compete with that. I lost.

Bus Waiting

Asha and I missed the bus (saw it drive away) so we sat at the bus stop for a half hour. Then we decided not to go on the bus we should've (cuz it said Express and we were dumb and didn't go on it). So, because of our idiocy, had to wait at the bus stop another half hour. That's one hour total. Yay us; nothing quite like quality sitting at the bus stop time.

Asian Bikers

The other day I was on my way to my History class. I was crossing the street, and there was a car that was waiting to turn onto the street I was walking across. So, like a respectful citizen, I sped up to cross the street faster. When I was almost to the other side I felt a sudden pain in my left thigh. I looked to behind me to see what had caused it. There was a girl on a bike, stopped, staring at me. Mind you it was about 10AM, and I was still waking up. I thought about saying "are you serious right now?" but instead I just kept walking. This girl just looked at me as if it was my fault, and didn't apologize, or say anything. And, as expected, she was asian.

TA zn

It's just my luck to have the only Asian T.A. in all of physics 7. And of course he can't speak English very well. Yay.

Bikes Suck

The past two days my bike chain has fallen off twice. Luckily i wasn't too far from where i needed to go so it all worked out. But today something weirder happened. While I was WALKING my bike on the way to the DC for lunch, I heard a poof! It shocked me to see that my rear bike tire was instantly flat. I wasn't even putting pressure on it and i didn't run over anything, it just felt like spontaneously popping. I don't even have a clue how it happened. I guess I should just take the bus next time...

Asian People

So, I was sitting in my Political Science class talking to my new friend as I started to notice some asian people sitting a couple rows in front of me. It was brought to my attention, about 2 slides into the power point, that these asians were extremely ridiculous. Not only were they taking pictures of EVERY slide the professor showed (yes, with their iphones and digital cameras), they persisted to take picture even after the professor confirmed that all the lecture slides would be online. This instance reminds me why I am embarassed to be asian.

First Days Of School

Okay so we all know that nothing really happens during the first few days of school. But this year I realized that professors in college also use these days to show off or to explain what is on their mind. My biology teacher who refuses to go by any name other than DOCTOR Gerhart, spent the entire class period explaining what science is and the approaches that one might take in order to be a good learner. I don't think any one person took a single note in that class. My archaeology teacher spent 45 minutes showing pictures of her career archaeological expeditions across the globe followed by a single definition of what archaeology is. Almost all of my teachers today also talked and explained the UC Walkout and all of the reasons/solutions for it. Yeah, pretty boring and unproductive day...

Crash or Not

Today Amy and I watched for potential bike crashes at the busiest bike circle on campus. To our dismay, nobody crashed, but somebody did almost get street swept.

First day of school- yet another day of ridiculous freshmen. My chemistry class was PACKED full of people; there were more than 500 people there. It is mostly a freshman class, which makes it fun. And since it was the first day, the wee little freshmen got to ask their precious little questions. *Sidenote* My Professor is Dr. E and he makes a lot of jokes (he's very very good) and says things to get a laugh that normal professors wouldn't. Anyways, back to the questions. It was sad to find out that some freshmen didn't get his jokes. For example: Dr. E joked that he would take attendance (but sounded serious); later, some kid asked, "Are you really going to take attendance?" REALLY DUDE!?! I mean, how on Earth would a professor take attendance in a class of over 500 people? That kid was clearly a 'n00b' freshman because, hello, lectures aren't mandatory- especially one like chemistry. But the idiocy didn't stop there. Somebody asked what P.T.A. number stood for (permission to add). That doesn't sound so bad, but it was, because the kid asked that question RIGHT AFTER Dr. E said what it was. I even heard some girls behind me discuss the spelling of the word: syllabus. Ugh! I hope I wasn't that loserish last year, but maybe I was.

Chem Test / Freshmen

Yesterday Asha and I took the Chemistry Placement test. It wasn't too hard of a test (we think we passed) but some funny things happened before the test even started. First, we were directed to a lecture hall to sit down. By the way, since we were about to take a placement test, the majority of kids in the lecture hall were freshmen (it was so easy to tell). While Asha and I were sitting and waiting for the test to begin, we started talking. We discussed our apartment, taking the bus, and other such things that, to the eavesdropper, would make it apparent that we were not a freshman. Luckily for me, I noticed that the girl sitting next to Asha (who was totally a freshman) was listening in on us, and had a look of respect / admiration for us, strictly because she could tell we weren't new to the Davis. I could be imagining it, but I swear it's true. However, that was just the beginning... Once the test proctor began speaking and telling us how to fill out the scantron was when the true freshman idiocy showed up. Examples: One guy asked, "Um... you said registration card... does that mean our student I.D.?" YES!!! you crazy person! My gosh! But here's the best one: One girl said, "I accidentally wrote my name upside down on the scantron, is that okay?" WHAT?!! I couldn't believe it. Asha and I both laughed. I mean, seriously, how did people like that get into Davis? Oh well. Basically my point is: freshmen are hilarious.

Parentals and Technology Do Not Mix

So my Mom called me yesterday, only to interrupt a perfectly great nap. The reason for waking me up? She had to ask me how to use something on my computer for the SIXTH time. Yes, the sixth time. Before I left for college last year, she took the time to write down the steps of how to do this incredible feat of burning a CD. So, naturally I was very impatient with her while I was trying to explain to her how to do this over the phone...which almost never works. Why can't parents just get it right! Neither of my parents are very good at the new, or not so new, technology out there.


Yesterday I went to the ARC and worked out (yay!). Then I went to the bookstore and paid lots of money for dumb books (boo). Then I learned some chemistry (boo again). Then we all watched Kill Bill Vol. 2 (yay!).

Big Kid's Park

So last night, Harry, Kyle, David, Amy, Jaclyn, Asha and I went to the big kids park. I've never been there but it was fun. Us guys were on the little spinning thingy just acting kewl like from Westside story and spinning at the same time. Funny part was some freshmen girls were walking by, sadly only like one was decent, and telling, almost yelling, us to go to SAE for the frat party. We could tell she was already drinking as she stumbled onto the mulch of the playground and her friends were telling her to get a move on. Ah, the dumb freshmen. I'm just glad I wasn't that stupid looking and drunkard. haha

Free Cookies and Lemonade

Sam, David, Harry and I went exploring around campus yesterday. Since it was move-in day for freshman, we 'snuck' into some buildings. We went to Courtney's hall (lol...pun) but she wasn't there, so we posed as freshman and ate some cookies and drank lemonade. Then we went over to our old building, Rienda, for nostalgic purposes; it was weird. Then we got Icees (yum) and went to the pool. Later was a night bike ride to the big kids park.

IKEA = hot swedish girls

Yesterday was saturday, a very boring day, but in the end there was no school thus an alright game. So I decided, with the help of Harry and his Sequoia, to go to IKEA to get some furniture in my room, especially that everyone else in my apartment is moved in nicely except me. Anywho, in IKEA there seems to be a natural tendencies for people from different backgrounds to come, but also the tendency for hot women to come. I have no clue why but it was nice. We also went to the walmart next door to IKEA... some how they had decent good looking girls there too. Probably because that walmart is pretty kick-ass.

Mike Stand

So yesterday I wanted to play guitar and sing in Rockband at the same time. At first, I had the microphone awkwardly placed on my chin, but it would slide around. Then I decided to make a microphone stand. Using one of my crutches, we duct taped the microphone to it and leaned it against a chair. So now I can sing and play. It is awesome.

Move In Day

Today, I moved in, for good. I was hungry after playing tennis, but realized I never went grocery shopping. So, I heated up some frozen chicken strips my Mom gave me before I left. I guess this means I'm a true, starving, college student now. I'm over getting older.


Big shopping day with Amy, Asha and David. David and I didn't buy anything, but just went along for fun. We went to Wal-Mart, and yes, there were some weirdos there. It just never gets boring watching people at the Wal-Mart.

Community Dinner

Today was a big deal for us: we made a dinner as a "family." I made mashed potatoes (that were really good), Harry cooked burgers and Kenny made a salad. It was fantastic, and I felt all grown up and awesome inside.

Sausage fest

So last night was Thirsty Thursdays as they say in College. I was invited to two parties, one at Temescal and another at Arlington. Derek and I decided to scope out the two parties see how they were. Both weren't bad but the party in Arlington, (sharp inhale) wasn't our type of party. I mean yes the girls were of good choice, ones we would talk to and hit on but the guys were the douche bag type. The type that girls like, not us guys who are suave, handsome, and fun loving. thus this party at arlington was a Sausage fest. Even though there were a good amount of girls it just seemed pointless to Derek and I. So we left, regrouped with our good looking friends and headed to the first party. Which was not horrible because we had some good friends to chat with and make jokes.

Party Fun

So we went to a party yesterday. It was way too hot inside the house so we stood outside the front door making life difficult for anyone trying to exit or enter the party. For example, whenever somebody would come out of the house, we (like 9 of us) would all purposely change spots, getting in the way of the person leaving so that it would be an annoying crowd for them to dodge. We thought we were so cool.


Don't you hate it when you get to the end of a bag of cereal and all that is left are the smaller crumby pieces. You wind up having about half a bowl of cereal full before you get to the bottom of the bag and you have to decide whether you are going to fill the rest with that small crumby stuff, or to have a small unsatisfying bowl. It always happens that those small bits always get soggy quickly and ruin the rest of your cereal too. It's just a bad way to start your morning with soggy cereal.

Thursday, September 17, 2009


Now that I'm a second year in college, I've pretty much had to cook all of my meals for myself. Although I wouldn't even call it cooking, more preparing foods. The only things I've actually cooked were brownies and seven layer bars with Harry, everything else has either been microwaveable or reheated lol. Kenny on the other hand is like a master chef compared to me. He marinated chicken one night for the next day! Holy cow I will never be able to do that for myself this year. Kenny, just promise me that you'll at least cook our family meals every once in a while so we can have some of your delicious looking food too!

Chem Day

I learned me some chemistry today. Woo hoo. I hate it already. Alicia visited, we played cornhole. Then we went to Eshan's like always. Always fun.

Girls are truely insane and are on Crack

Why are girls so weird. Granted I did make the group: Girls are on crack but seriously, they just don't make sense. My pseudo-girlfriend who I treated with all the respect and honesty just like an actual boyfriend would, broke our relationship saying "we didn't want the same thing" and " you deserve better". Now let me get this straight, the girl I like, I CAN'T deserve? I mean there are REASONS for liking some one, hence making me deserve this girl. And also, "we want different things in this relationship"? I mean come on! I wanted her! Just to be with her, to hang out with her, to enjoy time with her no matter how awkward it can be. This is why I believe even more that girls are on crack and that I don't know what to do about them. If a girl makes sense, I will take back what I've said, but otherwise, Girls: make up your effing mind!!!!!!

Yet Another Boring Day with randomness

Well living in college, by yourself is, well what it is. You're on your own, living by yourself, unless with roommates but essentially its by yourself. With school starting around the corner, the weeks before seem mundane and stupid. The sad reality is watching the flies try to escape into the open air... When I say try I mean make wild loop-de-loops, aimlessly at the moronic screen which is right in front of them. But what made today interesting was my soccer practice.... We have two goal keepers, myself and this guy named George. George, is what we would call a character. He slow, tries hard but doesn't make sense. Now the reason why I call him a character is that today he made a remark. Not a foul one, not a stupid one, but one that I took to offense. Why did I take it to offense? Let me tell you the events of what happened. We were playing field positions, everyone of us. I was working my ass of while this guy stood there with the blankest look on his face like a dumb jock trying to understand algebra. Also, this guy is what we would call an "Addy". He has no competitiveness or balance and this is what he said when I said: "You know we keepers need to understand how to play the field too." guess what he said: " Same to you."
That ticked me off, I mean if I didn't have self restraint that guy would have the sorriest look on his face with nice black and blue eyes. Oh, might I add he's a FOURTH YEAR!!!!! wth.

More than Yesterday

Today I had cereal for dinner. Welcome to college life I suppose. Oh and KevJumba lives in my apartment complex (non-excited yay). And I bought a new tube for my bike and installed it; hopefully it won't go flat. My toast just popped.

Purple Shirt

I wore my purple t-shirt yesterday. Too bad I didn't hardly leave the house to show it off. Lame.


Not much happened yesterday; watched Del Potro beat Federer, watched the chargers beat the raiders and went to the supermarket for the first time to buy groceries for myself. It obviously wasn't the first time grocery shopping, just the first time where i could buy whatever i wanted to eat. It's nice that i didn't have to cry for that candy bar I always wanted, but it's still my money in the end.

Mosquitos Suck

The mosquito that has plagued me and Dave these past few days will get its just end. I will smash it to a thousand gooey pieces for the itch it has caused me. Damn it to hell. Kenny might have got it though.

Blink 182 Concert

Last night a few of us went to the Blink 182/Weezer concert which was amazing! But one thing with concerts (and most public events), is that it was also filled with lots of weird people. One guy, while sitting in traffic on the freeway, decided he needed to use the restroom. He jumped out of the car and began urinating on the side of a business building off the side of the road. If you have to jump out of your car to relieve yourself, you must really have to go... he certainly did... it took him awhile.

blink 182 concert!

It rained the entire concert, but we were under a cover (by about 4 rows) WHAT UP! Sucks for all the thousands of people that got soaked. The concert was awesome! Blink-182 even gave away a couple of their guitars to people in the crowd, but I guess you had to have boobs to get them. Lucky groupie girls...

Aggie Football

Today a few of us went to our first Aggie football game of the new season (apparently it was also Eshan's first aggie football game). Anyway well the Aggies were behind by a touchdown (like always) and were driving down the field with a few minutes left in the game for a chance to tie, when the lights of the stadium turned off! This stopped the game and ultimately stopped the Aggies momentum when they failed to convert a fourth down on the resuming play. I'd like to blame the lights for the Aggies loss but it's a bad excuse for the suckiness of our football team.


Today David and I were playing catch with the football in the parking lot and he hit a car on accident. It beeped.

Bowling Weirdos

We went bowling yesterday and saw some weird people there. In the lane next to us was a leash kid who really wanted to escape (who's mom was fat and wearing zebra patterned shirt). We also saw a creepy guy there wearing a tuxedo and top hat with bunny ears- like a playboy bunny but a man. Gross. And the people bowling next to us had names of Keke, Zafa and Jeffie.

Friday, September 11, 2009


We finally got internet today! Ah sooooo exciting! We also got cable. It is kinda pathetic how we were going crazy for 4 days without it, but whatever. We even have furniture now. Amazing, I know.

Thursday, September 10, 2009

Dave arrived

Dave got here! Yay! We are like peas and carrots again. Anyways, we went to Eshan's and watched The Emperor's New Groove- I was surprised at how many people (especially Derek) knew all the lines. Crazy. Wiener wiener (haven't done that in a while). inside joke. lol

Day Two

So we found our first cockroach in the apartment today. Surprisingly, it was in the sink. That made it easy, because we garbage disposaled that pesky little piece of crap.

Moving In

I moved all of my stuff in yesterday, but our apartment has no furniture. I don't even have a bed yet, so I have to sleep on the floor. Yay carpet.

Jury Duty

Last Monday, I had to fulfill my civic duty as an American Citizen. I was called into jury duty. First of all, it was in Oakland (about 45 minutes away from my house), and I had to be there at 8:30am. For a college student during the Summertime that is WAY too early-especially for me, since we all know I'm a bum. Anyway, I made it there on time, and sat in the jury room, waiting, and waiting, for them to call my name. As I was waiting, I looked around to see if I knew anybody, and I did recognize a guy from my hometown, but did not talk to him. So about 15 minutes into the wait an older, African-American man sat next to me. Naturally, we started talking. I got to know a lot about him. He lives in Hayward, works at UC Berkeley in the DC, served in the Navy, and has carpal tunnel in his right wrist. After chatting for a bit, he introduced himself. His name was Pearl...

Am I Allowed to Start??

kyle...can i talk about my new bff pearl, or are we waiting until we get up to school?
