The trip to Hawaii is here! Leaving to go to LA at 4am, flight leaves at 8am! Can’t wait to eat the peanuts and hopefully get to watch a free (good) movie. A week in Hawaii…priceless! Beach and paradise here I come!
Be Happy and Smile! “Welcome to the Good Life” - Good Life by Kanye West
I know I am and will definitely be happy and smile. I’m going to eat dinner with my family with my brother back from Berkeley, see all my friends that came back from college, go to Hawaii, and then start another new year!
I want everyone to know that I’m thankful to have met you and get to know more about you guys! It is because of all of YOU that I am so full of optimism and joy. My life would be so incomplete without every one of you, and even if I don’t really chat with you so often, I’m just glad to have met you because every little thing in our lives help change and shape the way we think, act, and feel.
I hope you all are having good times, and if bad things are happening to you, I just want to let you know that no matter what you are strong and can fix the problem. Everyone goes through all kinds of shit in life, it’s normal; Luckily for me, not too much has been effecting me. I mean I got a F in physics and am just worrying about my other grades, but I accept the fact I have to retake the course because I know I failed in trying my best in that class. But an important note: You have to look at the brighter side of things man. People just like you face the same exact problems you face, probably even worse, so don’t fret! Just be thankful you have that OPPORTUNITY to do whatever you want to do. Sure there might be rules for what you are going through, but you know what? Fuck it, follow those rules and own that shit. You are a strong person and can take whatever life throws at you. In the end, you will feel so much better and will be so much happier.
As I said before in my ‘LLL’ post, learn from your mistakes, build from them. You will become a better person than you already are and you will definitely feel a shit load better. I saved a link that I saw on Yahoo a long time ago. It’s a 72-year-old study on Happiness. I live by these three standards, and encourage everyone else to follow them, because that’s how life should be lived: with you being happier than ever and spreading the positivity to those around you.
Love is the strongest feeling in the world and can never be lost; However, Happiness is a feeling that many are able to lose in life in an instant. People are able to lose such a great feeling? I say Damn That Sucks, no Man I Feel Sorry For Them, no Fuck That! Everyone is entitled to be able to smile and be full of joy and pride. Don’t let anyone tell you what you should do in life. SHOOT for your dreams, AIM for your goals, BE what you want to be, DO what you want to do.
So thankfully I was finished with finals on Wednesday, and so far so much has already happened!
Wednesday - Shopped around Horton Plaza with Sean and spent so much money…so poor! Finally danced at the gym, and it felt so great, even though I feel so slow now haha! At night, ate at Wing Stop! Woooooo! Finally went there after so longggg.
Thursday - Original 4 Dinner at Sushi Deli, Christmas Gift Exchange, and Beer Pong! I got so much great gifts! Thank you Shirley, Vannessa, and Sean! Although I got a parking ticket (my 5th one ever…all THIS YEAR…) when we ate, the rest of the night made it up! Was 3-1 in BP, damn you Sean for the 1 lost! Haha! It’s all good. Love the O4.
Friday - Ate lunch with Shirley at Lolitas in Convoy! Mmm carne asada fries! Then got boba at Tapex! Went back to my house and chilled until Mark’s Bday party! Damn it was so fun!
And the fun has just begun! Hawaii on Wednesday, hell yeah!
I AM FINALLY DONE WITH FINALS AND PAPERS!!! I feel so relieved! Now I get to party, go to Hawaii, and chill for more than a month with no worries!
I feel so proud of myself because these past two weeks have shown me my own potential as to what I can achieve. What are my limits? Nothing, I’m limitless. I can do anything I want as long as I put my best effort into it, and even if I fail in the end I’ll still be damn proud that I tried with the best of my abilities.
Never let anyone tell you "You can’t do it" because you can, anyone can. The greatest thing about being human is that there are no barriers that block us from what we want to achieve; we can always reach the unexpected and the unknown.
I will never fail in life. An F in a class is not a failure to me, losing in a tournament is not a failure to me, not being able to cross the finish line is not a failure to me. The most important thing to get out of everything I do is to learn, think, and have fun. We all must learn from our own mistakes and build from it, I cannot stress more how vital that is. And to have fun? Definitely a necessity in life because that is how you become and stay happy, positive, and enlightened. As long as I try my best, I will always succeed.
What is a failure to me? To not be able to use 100% of my effort in what I do. To not make people laugh, smile and stay positive. To not be there for my family, friends, and other loved ones. To not stay true to myself.
Life is hard at times, it is for ALL people. Compare yourself to others in the world. Are you feeling as down as someone who has no food or clean water? Are you having as bad a day as someone who has lost a loved one? Are you really that angry that you failed a test when there are those in the world who have no education whatsoever and can never find a stable job?
Be thankful that you have the life and opportunities that you have, I am. I’m thankful that I can go to school, play basketball, drive my car, buy a coke at the store, write this blog. If your life is going downhill, you can climb yourself back up, everyone can. Utilize what you have around you: friends, family, gym, etc.
Love is the most important thing in life, everyone contains this entity within themselves, and it will never be destroyed or weakened, it can only grow stronger.
I hope you all can read this, learn something, and agree. This is my opinion and some of my views in life, what are yours? Think about it. I certainly did.

I finally finished ALL 6 papers!!! Totaling 23 pages of stupid shit for history class!! I also have 3 more finals and I finish on Wednesday, so 3 more days of school and then it’s freedom from there on!
Honestly, I feel like I’ve accomplished so much in these past 2 weeks. I tried so hard, read a lot, took the time and effort to do the best I could possibly do on the papers and finals, hopefully it pays off in the end but seriously I feel so great right now. I don’t care what grade I get, I did my best and tried the hardest I’ve ever tried in my life. I was able to actually do my SOCIAL LOCKDOWN week and restrain myself from going out a lot and spending money!
And so I’m thinking, if I can do this, I can do anything I want in life, just as long as I keep true to myself, try my best, and try to have as much fun as I possibly can in what I’m doing.
I’m not much of a blogger..I don’t think my life is too interesting hahaha but I’ll try to update as much as I can. I remember the first blogging site called Xanga? Yeah that didn’t last too long! Anyways, today I had my first two finals, CIVE100 and CIVE120, and both I thought were easier than expected, I should be able to pass those classes easily. I’ve done 5 essays in 5 days and just have 3 more finals and 1 8-page paper left, I think I’ve been very productive this week cause it was my SOCIAL LOCKDOWN week. The prize in the end? HAWAII!!!!!
A shout out to my homegirls in chula vista and la mesa! Yeeee we da best! Love you Vannessatee and Shirley!
Oh and another shout out to APSA Eboard, some of the best people in the world!
