it seems like the people who i've known only a short time often make the biggest impacts on my life.

i worked with for a year or less. he gave me some good advice and had lots of stories to share. after he left to pursue huge dreams (new yorkkkkkk~) he still called and visited the work place and it was like a reminder there is a whole WORLD outside of the life you already know.

the clinique makeup girl. i only have one thing to say: SELF-EMPOWERMENT.

one of the most ambitious people i've known! she was a friend when i needed one and i don't even know if she remembers me after all this time... but where ever she is i'm sure prosperity will find her!

another ambitious fellow! hard working, and persistent. he inspires me to be a better scientist- i learned my aseptic technique under his watchful eye [piercing gaze]. did i mention he's hillarious? there's a special mnemonic for remembering F-Met-Leu-Phe that i'll never forget...

an amazing photographer and wonderful conversationalist! we had so many good darkroom days talking about movies and other stuff. i wish i could have picked his brain on photography more. when i left the photo lab for the last time, i never really said goodbye because i always imagined we'd run into each other again. i haven't seen him in two years.

and now i come to rsuenaga.

the main person i am thinking about as i write this whole post.
i hardly knew ye. funny, sarcastic, and HUMBLE. he was always busy but always had something to tweet about... advice, food, random stuff. in all honesty, rsuenaga often filled up my tweet stream and if i threw out a random question to the twitterverse i felt like i could count on him to make some kind of reply. my first tweetup was #tweeball, which he arranged, and i was lucky to meet him several times in person. i met a lot of other tweeps through him which makes him even more special. your life ended too soon, in tragedy, (i can barely believe it myself- keep thinking he'll tweet about how this is a huge sucky mistake and why has it take it so long to become a hashtag) but i'll never forget all the :) he brought.

when i was in elementry school i heard the phrase THE LIFE IS EPHEMERAL on tv (it was a tattoo of a girl on soko ga shiritai). i just liked how it sounded at the time but i have come to realize it's true meaning as i got older. i think about it a lot these days, when the world is moving on with out you (so sue me, i've been rereading dark tower 3), especially in times when another acquaintance is lost. one really should say what they feel when they have the chance or do what your heart desires but it's something easier said than done. you always imagine there will be another time when you will meet again. so much for carpe diem.

it's hard to end this post because there is so much more to be said but i can't really think of any other way...
