Happy Birthday...Part 1

My birthday was a couple weeks ago. I feel as though as each year goes birthday is not all that special anymore. But i still enjoy spending it with my friends and hanging out as if it was a typical day...except sometimes i get some special treatments, such as...not having to pay for dinner, and people are nice to not that people are mean to me on a daily basis. I'm 23 now, i can't wait to get a few years older though...i'm anticipating what my life will be like in the next few years.

I had work on my birthday but my boss wanted to have a company luncheon at Sonoma Chicken Coop...He surprised me with a birthday card. I guess it was a company lunch for my birthday? No idea. Then After work I hung around until it was time to meet up for dinner at the Original Krung Thai. Not the New Krung Thai which some people went to instead. It was just a nice chill dinner like how i prefer it to be followed by some delicious frozen yogurt afterwards.

On Rotation: Clazziquai is Mucho Punk

- Snagged from google.

After Thwany and Letopho has put in their 2 cents, i thought i should also say that their album is so good! I usually only find two or three songs off an album worthy of my ears but its so good and i've been listening to this album for about 2 weeks now and their entire album is worth the listen. It definitely keeps me calm and awake during my commutes to and from school.

I love Horan's new look. She's super chic with that short bob. Alex is lookin good as aways!

thrift store findings

On a positive note, after class i went to Cross Roads to check out their stuff and i ended up using my store credit to get a pair of black Levis' 510 Super Skinnies. It fit great, since my 511 don't really fit me like skinnies should fit. I'm always happy when i find something good at recycled/thrift shops it feels as though i put in some work to find the item of clothing. Plus i got it for half the retail price.


We (The boy) had made plans to hang out yesterday. But after he got off work he cancelled on me. I was pissed off but at the same time i did understand his reason or excuse because his friend told him last minute that she was in town for work, and it was her last day. I waited for two hours after i got off i felt as though my time was wasted. Driving home and coming back was not a plan because i do enough commuting as it is. I was pissed, and he apologized several times, but i'm over it now.

I seem to do a lot of waiting and it's starting to get to me.

A second chance...

I can think of hanging out with The Boy as a second chance. I feel as though we have connected so fast and so well that I would seem infatuated with him. Which is why i am glad I've been given a second chance, because seeing him the other day and what we've talked about is also helping me move on and understanding how we wouldn't have a good relationship at all.

He doesn't like kissing...if anything it's just a small kiss on the lips. I think that would bother me a lot.

But there are more pros than there are cons

Pros: Cute, funny, Similar taste in movies, likes to cuddle, likes food.

Cons: no make out sessions.


So would a strong connection with someone overlook the small cons? I now understand how some people despite seeming as though they're in a good relationship, can be affected by the little things.

The reunion

Last night I hung out with The Boy who I havn't spoken to or seen since September of Last year when we stopped dating. I happened to walk by his store in the mall, and there he was working in the front window. It felt like a scene from a movie, where two people happen to catch each other's eye within a few seconds, and it's over instantly. As I walked by, I waved at him not knowing if he would recognize me or wave back.

He texts me later on...
Him: Was that you who walked by my store?
Me: Yea it was me...
Him: Why didn't you stop by and say hi?
Me: I don't know...not sure if you wanted to see me or not.
Him: Of course I do.
Me: Oh, well i'll stop by next time i'm at the mall then.

As stated, the next time I went to the mall, I went in to his store to visit him. I was nervous and didn't know what to say besides the usual "hello" and "how are you doing?"

We began texting each other here and there, when I found out he broke up with his boyfriend...

Recently I mentioned that we should hang out sometime and get some Pho, because I knew it was his favorite and I havn't had it in awhile.

Fast forward to Wednesday...

I followed him to the Pho restaurant. Where we caught up on a lot of things that have occured within the year we lost touch.
From our future plans, what we've been up to since we last talked and whatever else that came to mind.

After dinner we went back to his place. We snuggled up in his twin sized bed, got comfortable in each others arms and watched 'Sex & The City: The Movie," which was really good. It felt as though we picked up where we left off in September. We cuddled, held hands and had small talk in between the movie.

I feel a great connection with him, and I know he's a really genuine guy. Even though we'll only be friends, i'll have to enjoy our time together while it lasts before he moves in 2 months.

I really missed him...because he was a good guy, and we connected really well. He just has the ability to make me smile and laugh.

Scavenger Hunt

Via Amazon

When my mentor mentioned these Merona Rocca BROWN WingTips on clearance at Target for 19.98/13.98, I knew I had to try and find me a pair. Wingtips usually run about $140 to $200 a pair for a good pair. I searched through three targets last week with no luck in finding me a pair of these in a 7. Until I decided to try two more targets today, low and behold i found a pair at the first target I went to. I felt like a found the winning prize in a scavenger hunt, it felt unreal. I tried them on and they fit pretty good, theres about half an inch of extra room. I just hope I don't look like i'm wearing clown shoes.

I went to another Target to see if they had another pair, but no luck. I'm ready to take these out for a day or night out, sockless of course! since summer is taking over, i can't remember the last time i've worn socks with my shoes.

SF Pride

Pride this year felt really empty and uneventful despite having so much to do in the city around and my friend were not able to enjoy it as much as we'd like to. Issues revolving around one friend ruined the weekend.

The Pink party was the first on our list, we ended up arriving way to early, the sun was still out, and me and my friend was stranded for the whole night. We stood in the middle of the street looking lost for two hours before we decided to grab some dinner and just chill at the hotel for the rest of the night.

We missed about an hour of the parade but it still went on for another two hours or so. We got bored and headed towards the civic center for the festivities.

The trio was supposed to dress up this year for pride, short shorts, knee high socks, and a baseball style Tee. Only two of us dressed up, because one of them flaked on us, and ditched us for his boyfriend. It was a waste of time running around with him trying to find his outfit, and he doesn't even wear it! But it was fun to dress up this year. We didn't really see much of anything besides aimlessly walking around, and sitting down for half the time in the grass. Didn't get to see or say hi to people i was expecting to see there. This year just wasn't as fun as the previous years.

“Missy gave me crabs!”

"Don't feel bad...i've got crabs too!"

“How did my friends convince me to share 2 lobsters with 3 people!”

Later that night, we had dinner at Joe's Crab Shack at the Pier. Everyone ordered a pot of sea food, while I ordered a breaded shrimp sandwich thing. They all got bibs, with silly messages on them written by our waitress. I was sad because i didn't get one myself, so i substituted one by using a napkin. The staff danced about every two hours just to heighten our experience as people dove into their food. They did a combination of the disco, some charlie brown, stomping around and spinning in circles.
