i haven't bought a magazine in over a week... i'm being so good...

Tuesday, September 19, 2006

sometimes i get this urge to just get really shitfaced and wasted. i don't care off what it is, i just want to be goneeee.

sometimes i just want to start bawling. but i can't ever seem to cry. it's funny because lately i've been getting teary eyed a lot more easily, considering i was barely able to feel empathy or passion towards anything a year ago. are things changing for me?

i dunno. i hate to sound like a broken record, but i want to get a jug of red wine and just be by myself.

okay, aside from my feelings, i have to talk about my class today. i switched up my schedule and registered at the last minute to this magazine class called "Breaking into Women's Magazines."

yes, i know. it's for women's magazines but here are the reasons why i registered for the class:

1) I would say like 80% of magazines on news stands are geared for women. what would it hurt for me to learn about this demographic? that way, i could understand everything about both women and men's magazines.
2) i figured it would be interesting
3) taking this class would give me all of thursdays off
4) all the hot chicks that could be in the class! (jk)

so i come into class today and when the professor walks in and see's me, she looks DIRECTLY at me and asks, "ARE YOU SURE YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE?"

i nod and tell her i sure am!

so okay, soon after the rest of the class shows up and this is the breakdown of the demographics:

1 Female Professor
1 Male Student (myself)
16 FEMALE STUDENTS who mostly ALL look definitely a lot older than me.

for the first 1/2 of the class, the discussion was about last week's homework, where the students had to list ten hypothetical magazine article titles that they would perhaps like to write. here are the topics that were brought up:

"HOW TO SURVIVE IN HIGH HEELS IN NEW YORK"
"STALKER EX-BOYFRIENDS"
"HOW TO DEAL WITH DIVORCE AND YOUR GROWN KIDS"
"HOW TO SPEND A DAY BY YOURSELF IN NYC: IT'S OKAY TO WATCH A MOVIE BY YOURSELF"

okay.... can i say that at this point, i have MAJOR CHURCH GIGGLES. i'm digging my nails deep into my arm to keep from bursting out in laughter. i'm seriously biting on my bottom lip and looking directly at the ground to avoid eye-contact with anyone because i know that if i see anyone's eyes, i will explode in laughter. suffice it to say, i managed to keep control of myself, THANK GOD. anyway, i felt pretty out of place throughout the rest of the class, scared to say anything because at certain points the male-bashing is in full effect.

however, there's no way i could transfer out of the class, i am stuck with ending this class for the last semester of my undergraduate life.

cheers!

am i a bad person?

why do i feel such anger in my life???

Sunday, September 17, 2006

you know i say this to my friend all the time, and she tells me it's one of the most ridiculous things she's ever heard in her life, but i think i'm too happy of a person.

i need to cut down on the acting happy bullshit.
i just got this overwhelming feeling of depression.

omg i want to do something so bad.

i feel so restless and can not sleep. i have no idea why. my sleeping problems are so damn frustrating sometimes. i tried my breathing excercises, which sometimes works, but didn't today.

anyway, i had an interesting day yesterday. my cousin who is now living in my house, had never been to manhattan in his life. in fact, he came straight to queens when he moved here a few weeks ago, and has basically been working everyday since then.

so sat night i drank this whole jug of pinot noir by myself as me and him bonded and talked. he asked if i would take him out to the city the next day and i agreed in my drunken stupor. so i wake up hungover as fuck because he's been knocking on my door all morning, trying to wake me up. at ten i finally get up and shower, and we're out the door by 10:30.

i'm too lazy to list all the places i took him to, but suffice it to say we saw all the good shit. by the time we got home, i was exhausted as hell. so we get home and then i go out and meet some friends for dinner. blah blah, i get home and do some reading and school shit. i go to bed, but can't do anything but toss and turn. yeah. and viola, now i am here typing.

so a thought crossed my mind today as i was with my cousin. i asked him what type of food he likes, so i could think of which restaurant we could go to for lunch. i start asking if he likes pasta, indian food, thai food, etc. and then he said he's never had any of those foods in his life. he's 34... and i suddenly got real sad. not because i felt bad about asking him, but to think of myself where i grew up in a culture with only really one kind of food, i feel that's so unfair. the fact that he's 34 and has never had lasagna of pad thai in his life. i think it just symbolizes how lucky i am to have things that could be considered a luxury by other people, to have those things as a norm in my life.

i tend to bitch a lot about whatever, but lately i've been trying to humble myself as possible. if i think, "fuck i just missed the bus!" or "damn it i really hate how i look today," i realize how fucking stupid i am, and if THOSE ARE THE BIGGEST WORRIES OF MY LIFE, THEN I HAVE A PRETTY GOD DAMN GOOD LIFE.

of course, it's hard to always think like that, but i'm trying...

anyway, i've decided to start trying to add more picture to this blog, i feel like it adds some variety.

so here is a picture i took today:

so school's started, yowza!

my schedule this semster is a bit off, but enjoyable nonetheless. however, i've spent over $400 in books and supplies for the semester! madness! especially for a liberal arts school. i don't think i've ever spent so much in one semester.

tomorrow is friday. i end class by noon and have to go to the korean embassy in new york to inquire about some visa info. and then, hopefully i'll catch up on the pages and pages of reading i have. but i'll probably just frolick in the sun.

i don't think i've ever been so conscious of my race in my life.

what is it with people in this country? they can't get over the fact that there are non-white and non-black people here.

it's 2006 people, FUCKING GET OVER IT.

i can't stop listening to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
