dayeeeem son! Days 23-28

I've been hella superduperfragilisticexpialidocious (remember that?) m.i.a. status from this blog and 30 day challenge. If anybody cares, i'm sorry. Hrm, it seems that's all I ever do on this thang - apologize.
Well, for the few of you out there who are still reading - HI! I'm back! And ready to be done with this challenge soon enough.
I went off to Los Angeles last weekend and had a freaking BUH-LAST (as usual).
Christina, Giang, me, Angelique, Tiffany
I felt so fecking special, oh very special that my beautiful blogger babes came to see moi!
 @ Avalon for the 28th of August (Leif's un-birthday because he didn't want to acknowledge it was his birthday. he just wanted it to be Saturday the 28th hence I said HAPPY 28TH OF AUGUST) for their 6 year anniversary party w/ Felix Da Housecat
that is how we do, all legs and cups with our pinkies up!
happy 28th of August bro.

Day 23: Something I Crave
I always crave sunshine. It's so rare in San Francisco. (I've become really redundant huh? Whining about no sun and apologizing.. hrm) I want to just be laying on the beach (on a sunny day) , wearing my favorite pair of jeans (with the holes in the knees) with my ipod blaring some 311. When I was in college, I had a hard time getting my ass to class. I went to a community college that was right next to a beach that had good weather most of the time. If I wasn't in class, I was at the beach..doing what? Listening to 311. The best chillaxing beach song ever is Amber by 311. Take a listen on YouTube if you don't believe.If I can't be at the beach, at least let me be poolside..pleaseeeeeee

Day 24: Share A Story From Your Past That You're Ashamed Of
Dam. Which story to choose.. I have so many! Well.. I'm running out of blogging time at work but.. I logged into my xanga the other day and i'm quite ashamed of how angry I was all the dam time. I needed to caaaaaalm the feck down, take down a few notches. Glad i've done so.

Day 25: What You Would Find In My Bag:
The purse i'm carrying today is a cream soft leather hobo from Top Shop that I picked up in New York. I really need to buy some leather cleaner for it, it's filthy. I was running in the rain at SFO one night to try to get on my flight to LAX on time. The dye from my jeans stained that purse :[
ipod touch
cell phone (blackberry baby) - obviously it wasn't pictured because I used it to take the photo!
Marc Jacobs wallet
Betseyville by Betsey Johnson makeup bag (which has TONS of things in it)
pay stub

Day 26: Place I Want To Visit Before I Die
To be honest, i'd like to see the entire world. I know that won't happen. I don't have the funds like Paris Hilton and there are just so many countries and only one of me!
Here is my list:
South Korea
South Africa
Spain (more specifically, Ibiza.. I might be going to Barcelona in November though)

Day 27: Why Am I Doing This 30 Day Challenge?
At the beginning of this year, my partner in crime Melissa and I were talking about blogging.
We both have always wanted to start one but never did. We vowed we'd each make up a blog and stick to it. Guess what? We both slacked on it (she more so than me!) I thought that doing this 30 day challenge would enable me to blog more (which it has) and help me open up to others so that they can know me a bit better. I also hoped that others would follow suit so that I could learn more about them as well.
labor day weekend of 2009
my  buddy Jeff from New Jersey was in town 
he snapped this shot of me taking a shot of food at our buddy Diona's birthday party
always grubbing and all about the peace sign
hrm, which reminds me. i haven't eaten crawfish in over a year! *sad*
the little cynic in me.
longer hair , plain face.
 a night out on the town
How have I changed since then..Well besides the obvious physical differences (longer hair, less makeup).. I believe I am far more patient than I was last year. Either I have learned patience or have just desensitized myself to bullshit. I think it's a little mix of the two. I forgot WHERE I came across this quote, but it has stuck with me. I found it somewhere in 2005 while browsing blogs. It has been something that I go re-read every single year on my birthday. Today, I go back to that quote because of this 30 day challenge.
"You know, looking back on the last couple of years, and where I stand now emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually, I've grown so much. When I say "change" it doesn't mean I'm a different person, but that I've matured - turned into someone more beautiful than who I used to be in the past. If age makes one more beautiful, then I'm not afraid of growing older. If pain gives one more insight, then I'm afraid not to take it. Life brings more uncertainties, momentary joys and pains. Isn't that what's beautiful - to experience everything? It certainly is a blessing. Sometimes, I forget that. I will be sure to remember that this time as I make this new journey."
