Insane. I must be insane for booking a morning flight out. I am sooooo sleepy. To those in in time zones approaching the end of the year, Happy New Year! Have a joyous and blessed year ahead. As for me, I'm trying to stay awake as the last day of the year begins for me.

Boring Night

Gah! Stuck on campus. Was supposed to fly out at 5.30 p.m. to San Fran today but changed it to tomorrow morning instead. Was supposed to run some errands, ie. mail things off and go to the bank, hence the delay. But guess what? The campus mail office was closed! And so was the cafeteria. Hungry me dragged myself to the strip mall area a mile away, did my banking, had a late lunch, shopped a little and walked a mile back. Well, at least I dealt with the banking errand.

Oh and there was a stupid dog that barked and chased me around. It was small luckily and not too brave. People should keep their dogs leashed. This is the sort of things that make dogs have a bad name. Owners must be responsible for their pets. I never let my dog out (when I had one) without a leash.

So I took a nap instead since I don't have to run my mailing errands and wrap things and print things. Lazy me. Yes, very lazy.

In my new room now. Moving rooms within the campus is such a pain without a car. I walked so much the past few days. I like the large desk in my new room. More working space, no more hunting for tables at the library. But the bed is smaller though...not that I erm, had any use of the large bed in my old room :P

And I walked nearly 2 miles to my friend's apartment only to find the rent cheque she wanted me to pick up has been sent to the office by her roommate!

My legs. My overworked legs. Can't wait for Yvonne to be back with her car :P

Hmm, should I lug my 6 pounds laptop to San Fran...I can watch a DVD on my flight...and have net access in San Fran? Oh well, we'll see.

On the 25th

Christmas Day. Lounging in front of the TV. Flight back to Phoenix tomorrow afternoon. Can't find good tickets for my last minute trip to London. Waiting for travel agent to email me Tuesday morning. Just in case, have a few alternatives in my head now.

Gloomy day again in SF. Staying in.

Amazing. 6 days to the end of the year. And no reflection of any sorts, yet. No thinking back. No thinking about plans and resolutions. No brooding.


Merry Christmas!

Sausalito is so comfy, I can easily live here. By the sea.

It was a nice quaint town off LA. A whim. Impromptu trip decided within 24 hours. With no plans. Just a car. And endless roads. Yvonne, Lyn and myself. Crazy they said. Oh well. Surreal it is to be here now, away from Glendale AZ.

I wonder what's next.

Looking out the window. The rain is unrelenting today. No walking around today. Sitting here with my trusty laptop and a nice glass of latte, I ponder on my next move.

Written 2 days ago in the car

Halfway from Los Angeles to San Francisco on the 5 at the moment. First it was the mad LA traffic out of Newport Beach on the 405. And then, we saw gorgeous hills and mountains. The sight was amazing. Passed flat fields flanked by the open skies in hues of blue, gray, white, light orange. Plantations. Green fields.

Surreal. We agreed to make this trip in barely 24 hours. A whim. Impromptu. Told Jean about it and she thought we are crazy. But she said I would enjoy SF a lot, it’s her second favourite city in the US, after NY.

Exam ended last Tuesday. Days have been spent with DVDs, books, drinks, parties, clubs, friends. Off to San Francisco today. Maybe for a week or so. Hope to use the manual features of my camera, which I have been too lazy to explore.


Merry X'mas

from a woman in fishnet stockings, driving after being pulled over by a police patrol : "I like to have officers behind me"

as the police patrol car was still behind her.

"Where Are You Christmas"

Where are you Christmas
Why can't I find you
Why have you gone away
Where is the laughter
You used to bring me
Why can't I hear music play

My world is changing
I'm rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too

Where are you Christmas
Do you remember
The one you used to know
I'm not the same one
See what the time's done
Is that why you have let me go

Christmas is here
Everywhere, oh
Christmas is here
If you care, oh

If there is love in your heart and your mind
You will feel like Christmas all the time

I feel you Christmas
I know I've found you
You never fade away
The joy of Christmas
Stays here inside us
Fills each and every heart with love

Where are you Christmas
Fill your heart with love

I am so screwed. Close to cancelling trip home due to various reasons. Two more exams. And one major deadline (worth 60% of grade). All within the next 36 hours.

Yippee. Then it's Christmas. Will read and read and read for fun. And sleep and sleep and sleep. Oh, maybe I should go to the gym.

Reality Check

Actually, it is damn simple. You are just ugly, all round, inside and outside.

That I Would Be Good

that I would be good even if I did nothing
that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
that I would be good if I got and stayed sick
that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds

that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
that I would be great if I was no longer queen
that I would be grand if I was not all knowing

that I would be loved even when I numb myself
that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
that I would be loved even when I was fuming
that I would be good even if I was clingy

that I would be good even if I lost sanity
that I would be good
whether with or without you

Alanis Morissette

Playing on the loop. Final exam season. Pray for me.

My list of things to do is growing like a teenager's pubic hair.
