1. The Colony has returned to TV on discovery channel! i am excited! the first Colony was so great. interesting team dynamics, super cool inventions, and great survival tips! i can't wait for the apocalypse! (haha) seriously, when is the next Colony and how can I sign up?! So far, i think the new colony has more supplies and less teamwork/efficiency. I also think it will be slightly more dangerous because you have to worry about viral infection besides the normal survival/sanitation/weather/safety/marauders! can't wait for episode 2, next week.

2. spent time with atula and yummiestars. just chilling and talking. so nice to be among comrades. sometimes i'm just in a downer for no reason. nothing like good company to chase the blues away. even just listening to conversation is therapeutic- you can focus on someone other than yourself. :) atula has a cool graphic design internship and yummiestars just got a substitute teaching gig. i'm so proud of all three of us, actually getting careers in our majors! >w<

3. my dad installed an air conditioner in the back of the house. B)

4. Don't remember if i mentioned that i borrowed Everything's Eventual from the library again. of all the times i borrowed this book i never finished reading all the stories. I'm starting by rereading my favorites. So far i've finished the book's name sake, and Little Sisters of Eluria. This collection is very diverse in topic and writing style (although the common theme is true to it's description "[14] dark tales"). The writing really takes you away to another time and place. I haven't read for pleasure in a long time and i'm awestruck by what i've been missing in my life- adventure. I remember reading the Dark Tower series for the first time and feeling how influential the writing was. I actually convinced myself that there were beaches behind doors and the number 19 was everywhere [eventual] and I still believe it. after finishing Everything's Eventual, plan to read fight club (it's my favorite movie so i figure i should try the novel out. i already borrowed it from the library.) but then i think i will revisit more of mr. king. i'd like to reread hearts in atlantis before tackling dt7. i often reread dt 1-4 (convenient because i own them) and insomnia (i should probably just buy this book already, too) but i've never read bag of bones or the stand. and i understand these tie into the world of ka so i might as well read them. a daunting list of literature but there's no harm in trying.

5. i really want to get tattooed.

been writing my dreams down on my itouch (during biol lecture, heh).
hopefully will post the last couple of them tomorrow (if the wifi is working).
inception is making me dream crazy.
really want to watch that again.

been putting myself to sleep with lali puna and massive attack, recently.

also, when i'm using to stairs at work, i sing death to los campesinos (i swear it makes me walk faster... with a spring in my step) and when i get moody by myself i sing carpe diem (todor/emily).

on tuesday i went to the beach.
i am dying to go back already.
can't be away from the ocean for too long. :)


Last night I dreamt I was doing microbiology. I was trying to isolate
some really dry colonies (eikenella? P. Stuartzii? It wasn't
nisseria. What else grows really dry? My micro is slowly disappearing
from my mind) but I kept getting E. coli contamination. I was going
through all kinds of media trying to figure out what the bug was. I
think several days passed because I grew it up several times. Why oh
why can't I get away from the lab? :,D
Also, in my dream I was still living in my old house and I still had
my bunk bed. My friend, samantha came over and we were going to sleep
on the bunk bed but we were going to share the bottom and not use the

So bizarre.

last night i dreamt that i went to a cluttered vintage jewelry shop. the front had bay windows and a heavy wooden door. there were dusty-rose colored curtains. a lady worked there. i was looking for a thin gold ring, but i didn't find what i was looking for.

i was so angry after work today, i punched the inside of my closet wall and ate sen-sen and study biology really really hard. my eyes were like laser beams on that book. i was playing Bring Me The Horizon songs and i even opened a new deck of cards (i was saving them for a bad day) to make myself feel better. and now i'm going to go sew some shit together (finishing my bon dance dress) and watch Fight Club because it just seems like a good idea.
good thing i have tuesday off. ò_____ó


super hot!
it's a molecular capsaicin (what makes chili peppers spicy!) necklace.

found on supermarket.

i want the caffeine necklace, too.
support your indie artists (and science lovers). :)


emily haines has the voice of an angel.
i want this song.
unfortunately, you have to purchase the entire album to get it.
the album is the sountrack for Eclipse, the Twilight movie.
I'm not really interested in the other songs. :/
guess i'll just keep replaying the youtube video instead.

I'm so tiredddddd!
Went to sleep at 1:30 or somethibg last night. I remember the days of
staying up until 2 or 3 or 4 every day... Can't do it any more! Need
my sleep.
Yesterday I worked another eve shift. Was ok. Not particularly
exciting but not too boring either. Got stuck in the ER for a while.
Seems like the doc was ordering blood cultures on every person that
walked in there! Here's what happens:
1. It's 3pm. Orders come out, sean goes to draw.
2. More orders come out, I tube it to him.
3. Blood culture orders come out I tube it to him.
4. More blood cultures.
5. Orders x 2 come out
6. Sean comes back up. Then more orders come out. He goes back.
7. Blood culture orders come out
8. Sean comes back up, it's 530 and he has to clock out.
9. I go down to draw orders.
10. Nurse tells me there are more orders.
11. Lab tubes me down orders for a blood culture
12. I draw the first set of cultures and then more orders are sent
13. More blood cultures
14. More blood cultures
15. More blood cultures...
(did I mention that two of them were hard sticks?)
So at this point, the nurse drew one of the regular orders for me
since they were starting an IV (thank god) and I was missing from the
lab for, like, two hours so mike d. Came down to make sure I was still
alive so he drew two of the blood cultures and I drew one more set of
cultures and some regular orders and then we got the heck out of there
before we'd never leave. Good thing we had enough LAs to do 1630
After that, things slowed down considerably and we picked up the odd
draws and stocked (the frakking req checks were all done by 4pm!! So
crazy! There was NO paper work for us to do!) and talked about Lebron
James and the airport toxicology department (full of interesting
people, harhar) and where people worked after they left clh (grocery
stores, meadow gold, cardiac unit, etc.)

This puts me in a good mood, even though I'm feeling so blah from
decongestiants. I really didn't want to be sick but my nose won't
stop running! :U

Yesterday I watched Yip Man 2. Was so good! The fights were amazing
and realistic (not over the top)! The cinematography was really good,
not too bloody or too dark or too fast to see. My only complaint is
one minute the wife is in labor and the next scene she is holding the
new baby. Haha! If only popping out kids was that easy! I also
watched it in Cantonese (with English subtitles) and was amazed I can
understand a few phrases. One of these days I will find time to finish
learning Chinese. :X

Last night I worked evening shift. Was good and slow, since it was a
holiday. I got to do a whole buck of chem stuff so I can be checked
off. I don't know if georgene is going to like that, haha. She likes
the whole, complete, nice and tidy training but mike lau just signed
me off on a whole crapload of stuff because he said I know how to do
it from my student training.

Anyway, guess I'm off to class now.
Don't call me, loves. Left my phone at home today. :)
