I quit on my 365 day project a long time ago, and now there’s no way for me to continue it :( Oh well, I should’ve finished it the right way. I only have 100 and something days done.
365 day thing that I haven’t done in months but I’ll do at least half of it right now :)
Day 67 - how you found out about tumblr and why you have one
I don’t remember. I probably found it through formspring? I have one because I’ve always wanted a blog.
Day 68 - The best concert you have been to
Haven’t but I will this upcoming school year.
Day 69 - Powerful song lyrics you love
Right now, Lykke Li’s Everybody But Me is a song I relate to. So that song’s lyrics are powerful to me right now.
Day 70 - A celebrity you don’t necessarily enjoy and why
Taylor Momsen. I don’t know. It just seems to me that she tries too hard to not be “Hollywood.” That’s fine and all but…whatever I don’t know her personally but from what I’ve seen I don’t have a great impression of her.
Day 71 -Difference between you and your best friend
My best friends are a lot better in sharing stuff about themselves than me.
Day 72 - List of everything you ate today
Cereal, pizza, two tamales, and I think that’s it….I have a feeling I forgot one thing lol
Day 73 - A movie you cried in
Most romantic films I’ve seen lol No ummm Titanic.
Day 74 - How would you describe your style of clothing
Simple. Cheap lol
Day 75 - What is one of the best dreams you’ve ever had
Ummmm….I don’t think I remember most of my dreams because I don’t dream too often AND if I ever do they are usually some deja vu thing that I experience later. It’s werid. I think one of my favorites was when I was in some trippy place and I was freaking out but I woke up really alert and just rejuvenated so I guess that’s the best one so far.
Day 76 - How do you feel about going green
I think it’s a good idea. I wish I was more green. I’m pretty green when it comes to recycling and reusing paper but that’s it.
Day 77 - What gives you everyday inspiration
I don’t everyday inspiration, on a daily basis, but when I’m feeling down I just remind myself of the people in my life and that people have been through worse things. That usually puts things in perspective, you know.
day 56: something you did as a child that other people remember you for
My cousins probably remember me for jumping off a flight of stairs just because they told me they’d buy me barbies lol When I was younger I think I was a lot more free-spirited, loud, and brave, so other kids may remember me for that.
day 57: what is your definition of happiness
I think it’s when your life isn’t prefect but you have accepted it and are satisfied with yourself and your life despite of it.
day 58: places you want to visit, and why
I want to go everywhere, every continent, most countries, and to as many cities as I can. That’d be awesome. Usually after every Olympic Game I see, I want to go the country it took place in. So out of the Olympics I’ve seen recently, I’ve mostly wanted to go to China and Italy.
day 59: one person you can tell everything to
I’d like to say my mother, but I don’t tell her about the guys I like or anything. But I don’t tell that to my friends all the time either, since I get over my crushes really quickly. The only time I tell my friends about any guy I like it’s usually because I really like him. If I had a boyfriend I’d let my mother know but I think my friends would find out first. So honestly, there isn’t one person I tell everything to but there are probably four people I could trust with everything I tell them about myself, my mother, EB, EE, and FA lol I’ll see if they figure it out. Overall, I keep things to myself unless I need advice.
day 60: a youtube video you absolutely love and describe why
I’m not much of a youtube user. I mostly use it to preview some songs I may download. However, I recently posted a video that my brothers showed me, which I enjoyed very much . It reminded me of my friend and how I KNOW she’d join this guy if she were there.
day 61: one of your most prized possessions
My ipod:) Not because it was pricey but because it took a lot of thought and effort on my friends part to keep this present a secret for SO long. Once in a while, when I see it I remember what they did for me and it becomes more precious to me because of them.
day 62: describe your best friend completely
I have two best friends and they are both supportive, thoughtful, caring, and like a second immediate family to me. They are funny at the most random of times. They are confident and beautiful people. They are strong young women who stand up for what and who they believe in. They’re level-headed and have always been a good influence.
day 63: your views upon gay marriage
It should be legal. It will not corrupt your kids. Your kids won’t “become” gay if gay marriage is legal. All it will do is let two people who love each other marry under law. Maybe God did want men and women to be together, but religion isn’t what’s in question. It’s about civil rights, and if two adults want to get married, let them. Let people have that choice.
day 64: your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before, what do you do
Go to the hospital and apologize, if they can hear me. I check on their condition. I try my best not to cry and I hope that they are okay. I try my best to just be there for their family.
day 65: one random fact about yourself
I stopped biting my nails but I can’t seem to stop picking at my cuticles, when I am nervous.
day 66: if you could switch lives with someone for a day, who would it be
My brother. Just to really live in his shoes for a day and try to understand him a bit more, because I really don’t.
Day 51 - Describe your future wedding
The funny thing about marriage nowadays is that we either over think it or don’t take I seriously enough. I think that I’ll probably overthink it but even then I hope that once I’m sure my wedding will be full of attendees that only include our loved ones. I don’t want to worry because i get sweaty when I’m nervous (tmi lol) and I know that interacting with people i don’t know too well will make me extremely nervous. I want it to be a simple wedding, nothing too extravagant or expensive lol. I want to wear a simple, elegant, and timeless dress, you know one that I didn’t wear just because it was “in.” When I think about a future wedding I mostly think about the people who will be there with me, my mom walking me down the aisle, and the great (faceless-at-the-moment) guy who has made me happy enough to the point of convincing me he was the right one. yup that’ll be the day lol
Day 52 - The most inspirational thing I’ve ever heard
I hear inspirational things once in a while but my favorite has to be the last lecture by Randy Pausch. It was beautiful. The most inspirational thing I’ve heard from someone I know is not that inspirational but it was reassuring. I was talking to my mom about college majors and me having a hard time choosing things because I want to provide for her but the majors that will best do that don’t interest me that much. She simply told me ” do what you want to do, what makes you happy, not what you think you need to do.” So I’ll follow that and my heart tells me to be involved in journalism, writing, and maybe teaching. Thanks mom.
Day 53 - Your day, in great detail.
Well so far I woke up, ate cereal, called my friend Stefy because I missed talking to her, got on Tumblr, and I’ve been a low life ever since.
Day 54 - Your definition of love
I’ll focus on friends and family love because I honesty don’t have much experience with the other love. I’ve found that friendly love is mostly about connection, acceptance, and support. I think that love is existent when you’ve seen a person be less than their better self but still care and love them regardless. It’s when they tell you something strange about themselves or do something strange but that doesn’t affect your love for them. It sometimes amplifies it. Family love is much more difficult because for me it has been more intense in the sense that the arguments get extremely personal and no one is less than blunt. Despite the arguments, I love my brothers and my mother is the most important woman in my life. When I figure out what romantic love really consists of I may share it here.
Day 55 - A passage from a book that had touched you
When I read Frankenstein, the creature was the character I sympathized with the most. I just wanted to give him a huge hug of love. So most of what he said touched me, no specific passage :)
Day 47- is the truth always good to hear
No. People say they want to hear the truth but a lot of times the truth causes a lot of problems that people don’t want to deal with. No the truth isn’t always good to hear but I prefer it most of the time. White lies don’t hurt anyone, but an accumulation of white lies do. So lie sparingly lol
Day 48- your story life in three words
What?! I don’t know. If I can summarize my life in three words then that probably means I haven’t gone through a lot of things. Despite everything, I’ve been lucky. So I guess those are the three words. I am lucky. I am lucky because of the people that have surrounded me.
Day 49- are you a lover or a fighter
I fight for what I love :) I’m mostly a lover. If I fight (as in argue) it’s because I think someone has crossed a line. I don’t fight for the sake of fighting. some people look to start fights. I prefer to end them or keep them from happening in the first place.
Day 50 - why are you doing this challenge
because it’ll probably be the one thing that I can stick to for a year lol no I just thought it’d be interesting to talk about some of the topics that this challenge has.
day 44: when is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just do what you know is right
I usually do what’s right when someone has crossed the line and I’m fed up. When I’m fed up with someone, I have no problem telling people, who aren’t close to me, off. I’m not much of a risk taker but when a value of mine has been disrespected I don’t think about the consequences. Overall, I’m not the best person to ask about risks, because I don’t take many. I take safe risks and I really wouldn’t call that a risk. When I think about risks, I think about carelessness and disregard for common sense. So, I’m far from a risk taker. I try to make logical decisions.
day 45: when was the last time you tried something new
I tasted a different subway sandwich the other day. lol I usually go with tuna but the other day my uncle brought me one that wasn’t tuna. Yeah, it’s not that I don’t like to try anything new. I do as long as it doesn’t cost me much. For example, when I go to UCI, I am most likely going to use the ARC to try kickboxing, yoga, rock climbing, and other stuff like that. So I’m not afraid of trying new things. I just don’t expose myself to many new things.
day 46: what makes you smile
Very simple things like family, friends, babies lol, cute animals, getting new nail polish, getting new earrings, romantic movies, eye candy, people’s kind gestures, and just about anything that is pleasant :)
I think body language says a lot, probably more than words sometimes. So yes it’s possible to lie without saying a word; people don’t always catch on though. that’s the main difference. when you lie with words there is usually a lot of deductive reasoning you can do to find loopholes in someone’s statement. Body language is usually a brief thing so it’s difficult to pinpoint a lie through it.
day 40: what are features you get complimented on a lot
My smile, attitude, and personality.
day 41: write a letter to yourself stating all the things you love about yourself
LOL I’m not in the mood to write myself a letter. I think the one thing I admire about myself is that I stay true to my values.
day 42: your best friend just died, what is your reaction
Cry for days. Feel like shit for not telling them how much I love and admire them. It’ll be like losing a close family member, extremely devastating. nevertheless I’ll try to be there for their family.
I think I’ve learned more from the bad. I’ve learned how I deal with hardships, disappointments, and tragedies. I think that the way people deal with hardships says a lot about a person. I admire people who don’t let a hardship dash their spirits. it’s really difficult to overcome the bad things life throws at you, especially since it feels unfair. When things are easy, one is less likely to notice any life lessons. I’ve always thought that there is more time for reflection and personal growth after a loss, devastation, or bad event. Despite the pain that is affiliated with a bad experience, personal growth is usually something that results. So, I can deal with loss and learn from it; I just don’t enjoy the loss part very much.
