This year, I don’t really have anything crazy planned since everyone I know is still in school or have their spring breaks right after mines. I guess these are somethings I hope to do, even though they are not that exciting.
- Have a latte and waffle at a coffee shop
- Watch a foreign film
- Finish and catch up with Once Upon A Time
- Visit an old high school teacher to catch up and update with life
- Go running
- Retouch, dye and trim off some hair
- Finally get a car wash!
- Possibly get a oil change
- Finish “Grey” by Pete Wentz
- Look for another bathing suit
- Watch and finish the rest of Dexter
- Go somewhere outside of the city?
- Visit CSULB
- Be more boring
One day I hope to have a date with a nice guy at a coffee shop and talk about life. Until then, I’ll just go to Starbucks and take it to go.Mar012013
After anxiously waiting, I finally got an email saying I got accepted to CSULB.
Even though I am excited that I got in it’s now really sinking in that this is actually really happening.
When I think about college, these last four years have been a big adventure. I never thought I would even come across to even transferring. I know that I’m probably behind since I know tons of people, who graduated my year of high school, graduating with their Bachelor’s from a Cal State or a UC. Unlike the others, I’m only graduating from a community college with just Associate Degrees, moving on to another school to get my Bachelor’s.
I do admit, sometimes I do get upset with myself because my original plan was to transfer our of a community college after two years and move on to a higher education to become a sculpture or a history teacher. Of course, over time people and things change, things get slower, and don’t go exactly how you want. I never told anyone this but inside, I used to be upset with myself because of it. I do admit, there are times where I slacked off and I even had to retake 3-4 classes because of it (and I am not proud of it) I spent four years where I honestly could’ve left with less than three.
Giving this an example, my point is, I’m not perfect. I’m not a genius or anything but this last year, actually working hard for it pays off. It took me a while but now when I think of it, I’m glad I did. These last few years made me realize what I really want to do with my life and my future. I’m not saying I don’t want to be a teacher, but taking the time and being patient allows you to figure out and realize what you really want.
I know some people feel as if they are never going to make it, transfer, graduate, or even make it through the semester but you can do it. Some people can’t do school but thats okay, it’s not for everyone. However, it is important to realize that if you feel like you are behind or it will never end, you are not alone.
Don’t get me wrong, my thoughts of transferring to a “Big Kid School,” still scare the living crap out of me. However, not I just have to decide where I really want to transfer to. Hopefully I make one up really soon.
**Small side note, congrats to anyone to transfers or graduates this semester/year. You made it this far and you should be really proud. I wish I was already in your shoes. For anyone who didn’t get accepted or still feel behind, you are not alone. I was once in your shoes so I know how it feels. Just work harder and eventually it will pay off.Feb252013
I got accepted to attend Cal State Fullerton in the Fall 2013. As of right now, I am just patiently waiting for a letter for Cal State Long Beach. Even though I should be excited to finally transfer since I’ve been attending a community college, I am honestly scared.
The school work is one thing but honestly, that doesn’t even matter to me. What I am more scared of is if I can afford to pay for college. Over these last few years, school hasn’t been exactly “cheap” for me, but I thank my dad for his military benefits and luckily getting financial aid these couple of years.
I know I shouldn’t mind it but I heard stories all the time about how people drop out or still owe thousands and are in debt because of just paying for school itself. I get afraid that when I move, I can’t deal with it and I wouldn’t want to disappoint anyone, leaving school with nothing.
As of right now, my main focus really is just to graduate, get my AA’s, and finally move on. I hope that to whatever school I do eventually get to decide on, I can make it through. Everyday I think about my future, and hopefully one day accomplishing and proving everyone wrong.
Being the youngest out of 4 kids and being the only one that really went to college and fully graduated, I want to show everyone that I can do it and I am not a failure. Being a young filipino-american, I also feel as if it’s a setback to what I want to do with my career. I hate to say it but I do know that most of the time people don’t take me seriously especially because of how I look, dress, act, and what my interests are. I wish people didn’t see me that way because I know I can actually do something good in life. I know people also take me for granted which I kind of wished it would be easier to see. Hopefully one day I can be noticed and eventually take off with a good career which will help me and also my friends and family as well.
All I can do for now is sit and wait. I hope I get into Long Beach and I hope I get to go to a school, graduate with a Bachelor’s and move on from then.
But really, I’m honestly really scared to attend “Big Kid College.”Feb192013
No matter how many bands you like, there will always be that one band who can never be replaced. The band that got you into all of this, that literally changed your life. Other bands may come and go, but you will always come back to that one band. The one that will always hold a special place in your heart.

I Knew You Were Trouble
I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift
“Once upon a time a few mistakes ago
I was in your sights, you got me alone
You found me, you found me, you found me
I guess you didn’t care, and I guess I liked that
And when I fell hard you took a step back
Without me, without me, without me”Nov222012
I finally got the change to talk to on of the counselors at my school today.
After attending a community college since Fall 2009, my counselor said that I can finally apply to transfer to a Cal State next Fall!
Since I’ve been taking so many classes, she mentioned that if I were to take one more Physical Education class, I can actually get an AA Degree in Liberal Arts for Social and Behavioral Sciences.
She even mentioned that if I were to take that and one more Communication class, I can even get a double degree in Communication Studies.
Now all I need to really take is 5 more classes next Spring Semester which I’m still debating on.
As for now, since I can finally apply, now I need to think about where to apply.
Even though some of my dreams schools include, UCLA, USC and University of Arizona, I unfortunately can’t afford that for the time being.
So now I have the choice to apply to Cal State Long Beach and Cal State Fullerton.
Plus, as much as it would be a work load, should I try to get a double degree to end my college life at Cypress?Oct032012
I spent half an hour jumping, popping and playing bubble wrap while I was working at the backroom at my job. Don’t judge me..Oct022012
I have come to a conclusion that every time I go to a party, a drink will be spilled on me.
Forever with the bad luck :(Sep222012
An elderly man ran up to me while I was running at the track.
Usually this guy always tries to say hi, wait for me, walk me to my car, and ask about my whereabouts (which at on point kinda creeped me out)
He asked me if I was angry since he noticed that I didn’t say hi to him or anything.
Even though I didn’t tell him the truth, he politely said “I hope you feel better. Take care.”
I guess the simple things in life do really matter.Sep042012
