it's past 4 AM, and i'm still up because i just spent the past few hours glued to my laptop. this is why i try not to get into korean dramas, they're fucking addictive as crack and if the drama's good, it's always REALLY good.

i probably haven't watched a korean drama in literally years. i think the last drama i watched was "My Name is Kim Sam Soon" in 2005. i just started watching this newer one called "On Air," and it's about actors, writers, producers, and directors in korea's entertainment industry. oh mannn, it is soooo fucking good. i swear, the people who wrote this shit are geniuses. the plot is so twisted and amazing but believable at the same time and i feel like i'm really learning some inside stuff on what goes on there.

i started watching this a bit late so i was able to get the first 5 DVDs and watch them back-to-back. now i'm sad that i'm going to have to wait a week before i see a new episode because that's how often they air in korea and how they become available throughout the world.

i went to the gym today and i've come to the conclusion that i cannot workout without music blasting in my ears. therefore, i went ahead and ordered a new ipod online.

damn you apple with your amazingly sexy products that i can't live without, damn you...

i'm having a bad week with my electronics.

i lost my ipod on saturday while out with friends. i was at a karaoke in ktown and took my ipod out to look for korean songs to sing. i guess in my drunken stupor, i left it on the table and didn't realize it until the next morning. of course when i call the karaoke place to check if they found it, they said there's nothing. ahhh i'm such a god damn idiot sometimes. i totally can't afford a new one right now, fuck fuck fuckk. i guess $250 for a new 80 gig one is worth it because i'll use it everyday and it'll be less than a dollar for a year, but i'm fucking broke!

i know i have to buy one because i'm sure as many of you new yorkers know, living in nyc without music to listen to is torture. riding the subway this morning, i feel like i was using my sense of hearing for the first time and this was the music to my morning commute: coughing, sneezing, loud music playing in other people's cheap earphones, more coughing, people talking way too loud, and more coughing. i can't read or do anything without background music on, my a-d-d kicks in and i get so distracted by all the people and noise around me.

then earlier today, some friends and i went to this GQ Magazine party at the Stoli Hotel on the west side. out of all my friends, i am usually always the one who brings a camera because i enjoy taking pictures and sending them to my friends. i'm very anal and a control freak when it comes to pictures, so this is perfect for me. so at the party, my friend is trying to take a picture of me and our other friend, and he says it's too dark and can't see anything on the camera screen so he doesn't know where to point before he shoots. i admonish him for being an idiot, and later find out that my screen is broken! argh, fuck fuckk fuckk. i guess i did get a good 3 years out of this digi cam, but still man- a lost ipod and broken camera in one week? that just sucks.

anyway, here's some pics we did manage to take from tonight's party.

the last is my friend wearing my glasses. hm, i think i look better in them.
i just slept 13 hours.

damn i feel good.

usually located directly to the right of the videos/multimedia section, i feel like "pictures of the day" on was created not only to show important world events of the day, but also to humble people.

i have days when i leave work completely annoyed and aggravated (like today) from all the stupid shit that happened in my day. i just want to be alone and not have to talk, look, or engage in any activity where i have to interact with another human being.

but then i come home and go through the "pictures of the day" section and realize, all the inconsequential bullshit that happened in my day is nothing but that- inconsequential bullshit, and i should just shut up and realize how good life is. there are literally hundreds of millions of people in the world going through life-altering events that i will hopefully never be subjected to, and i am grateful for that.

i love being humbled, but sometimes it's so damn hard. all i do is think all day at work and i'm afraid i'll never be happy. i'm always on the lookout for the next thing in my life and i can't ever seem to feel content with where i am. yes, works keeps me extremely busy throughout the day but i feel so bored with what i'm doing, and with life in general. i need a new project, job, hobby, or person to just keep me busy and not thinking about all the stuff that usually races through my mind.

so i had a very stressful day yesterday because of work and a personal matter.

work has been kicking my ass lately. the past few weeks have just been madness in the office and i feel like everyone is always running around like chickens without their heads. everyday is just a constant flow of annoyingness, meetings, annoyingness, more meetings, etc. Suffice it to say, the stress level for everyone is through the roof. also, finding out about another personal matter that really gave me one of the biggest shocks in awhile didn't help, so i came home feeling pretty drained and exhausted.

i come home and decide to drink a 40oz i've had in the fridge for a few weeks. i see that my roommate is up and already drinking, so i ask if he wants to split my beer with me. he said yes and then we started talking and actually kind of got to know eachother. i realize in 5 months, we never really did that.

oh man, all i have to say is the stuff i found out about him just floored me, it's the funniest and craziest fucking shit that i never, EVER, EVERRRR in my life would've expected.

if i write a book one day, i am dedicating a whole chapter to write about his story because there's no way i ever wouldn't include it! this stuff is too good and must be shared throughout the lands...

this is when i say, "oh 25, there you go again!"

i fucking love me a good korean power ballad.
i think my roommate just brought a guy home... hahah i don't know why i find this so funny.

i know i've blogged about this before, but now i'm going to make it one of my themes of the year: when you become 25, everything in your life just changes.

i've been preaching about this to all my friends, who are also mostly born in 1983, but since i turned 25, for some reason my whole outlook in life has just drastically changed. all these crazy, unexpected thoughts and events keep happening and when they do, the only thing i have to say is, "oh...25, there you go again."
