coketalk: These types of shitheads are everywhere in my industry, and they are the bane of my fucking existence. One of them recently wormed her way up from the assistant level into my department, and I’ve spent the last couple weeks trying to teach her how to wipe her own ass. I liked her well enough at first. She’s hot shit, barely old enough to drink, and loves telling everyone about her...
Sherlock Holmes Theory
I admitted in my EDCO (Peer Counseling) Class today that I was a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. It was very satisfying. I proceeded to explain how technically it could be possible to distinguish/tell/categorize what someone was like by their appearances alone. You just have to be very good at it. :)

'Gameover' Scam Targets Bank Accounts
usagov: The FBI identified a new phishing scam online that targets your bank accounts. The scam is called “Gameover.” Once the virus is on your computer, it can steal all of your user names and passwords before you realize what has happened. How It Works The Gameover scam will email you, pretending to be from the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA), the Federal Reserve Bank,...
Beverly Hills, cars, cars, cars
I had an interview there a few days ago and although the interview was kind of lame (but still quite a hilarious story), just driving to Beverly Hills with my dad was an interesting experience. A lot of what I remember is cars, cars, cars. I must have seen at least 10 different Porsches from Panameras and Boxstars to Carreras and older models (that I can’t remember the name of). Saw plenty...
Applying to Internships Galore
Unlike those lucky people who happen to have certain connections, I have to slave away looking for a summer internship. Sure, I have contacts/connections too but it’s not a very long list and for the most part, they are not the right people to supply me with an internship with the snap of their fingers. Today I have applied to 4 and I must have applied to more than 7 this past two weeks. I...
Robert Frost's "Nothing Gold Can Stay"
andrewlouisqin: Nature’s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf’s a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. I really love this poem. Eight lines of gold and then it’s over. Very appropriate.
McDonalds Popcorn Chicken
hisbrotherskeeper: Because I’d rather die a disgusting, high blood pressured, fat riddled, grease injected death than live life like a long-eared, bucktoothed fool. You say that now, Grandfather. People who are healthy are not always long-eared, bucktoothed fools! At least their plumbing works like new haha
I feel more lost today than usual.
USC begins partnership with Kaya Press publishers →
I enjoyed writing this article especially. Not sure why.
Just wait and give it time and you will find a solution. Whether you like that situation or not, be truthful and true to yourself. Whatever it may be, I believe in you.
How to make my day in 14 words
cherylock-holmes: “Your outfit…You look like you just stepped off a bus from New York!” …One day. One day.
Despite what people say about public...
I think it’s actually pretty good considering that most people have cars in LA. There are plenty of buses you can take that can get you around the specialty districts (like the DASH lines) and then there’s the Metrolines too! Taking DASH F to the Financial District tomorrow for an informational session thingy (wish it was an interview) for Northwestern Mutual!
How to Study Like a Tiger Cub by Sophia...
ktom: (link) She’s actually incredibly witty—and brilliant, she goes to Harvard. Her other posts are really funny too. Preliminary Steps 1. Choose classes that interest you. That way studying doesn’t feel like slave labor. If you don’t want to learn, then I can’t help you. 2. Make some friends. See steps 12, 13, 23, 24. General Principles 3. Study less, but study better. 4. Avoid...
Watched Sherlock yesterday
Third Episode. Watched it in Leo’s room with his floormates. I was sucked into the show the entire time. It drew me in like a moth to a bright light. Darn it all I keep thinking about it and now it’s over (or at least I think so). THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS I WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT. ARGH. I LOVE SHERLOCK HOLMES. I can’t say that I liked every single part of Sherlock. I thought...
HP makes you single hahahhaha
Mom: "Your clothes won't fold themselves."

Mom: "And this is why you're single"

Musicals at Pantages
From my good friend Jason Chern THE BOOK OF MORMON IS PLAYING AT THE PANTAGES SEPTEMBER 5-NOVEMBER 25TH THIS YEAR. MY GOD I WANT TO WATCH THIS SO BADLY. I WANT TO SEE THIS AND ROCK OF AGES. D: I WILL GO FOR ONCE. I MISSED LES MISERABLES ALREADY
is very tedious. I’ve spent at least 4 hours on this huge load of homework already. I can’t really tell if I enjoy it or not. It’s interesting enough.
Ted: [Appalled] She was 15?
Barney: A 15. Like in blackjack.
Ted: As in, not sure whether you’d hit it?
I love living in Los Angeles
even when I know that I sometimes get bothered by the fact that the seasons don’t change much here and the lame stereotypes that come with living in this amazing city. Today I had one of those college nighttime adventures around Los Angeles with Niki, Peter, Jay, and Anhkhoa. We blasted music and danced to songs in the car on our way to a bowling alley which we ended up going to the...
New Years Eve
To end 2011 with some of my favorite people in the world, gov gov gov. It was mostly fun, lots of laughter and delicious food. Minus the part that William’s dog bit me… I had a grand time. It had a very kick back kind of feel and it was nice to just sit around and catch up with people. It was like Jon ma’s birthday party :) I love Arcadia people. Speaking of which, I didn’t...
On a following note, the possum in our backyard...
is still alive. It escaped an hour later in the wash and probably sent us that skunk that stunk up our whole house as retaliation and revenge. The adventures of living with woodland creatures.
On a separate note, I really love Top Gear.
I wish I could do what the trio does for a living. They travel everywhere, crack jokes, laugh their cajones off, play jokes on each other, laugh some more, take on ridiculous challenges, and most of all, THEY DO THIS ALL WITH THE BEST AND BRILLIANT CARS. It’s glorious. And it’s only on a separate note because of my dark and somewhat disturbing post about the possum. But back...
The Dead Possum in my Backyard
This account is not for the weak stomachs. it wasn’t originally dead. In fact, it was crouching and growling in our backyard in a small section between a tree and a bush as my dog frantically barked and sniffed at it. And for some stupid reason, no matter how much we poked at it to leave or left it alone staring at it, it would not for whatever dumb reason leave. How could this possum...
