Dooj: "Whoa David made another shot!"
Boner: "Someone's been doing his QT's."


God answered my prayer.
Of course.
This morning.
Just in the nick of time.

***

Today was the 4 on 4 basketball tournamenet at church.
All the teams were made by Mark, and they were pretty balanced out.
On our team: me, Dooj, Jon, and James.

Our record: 1-3.

We still made the playoffs because 4 teams made it (there were 5 teams total), and we beat Mark's team for the last spot.
We faced Kim JDSN's team since they were the 1st seed. (it was 1 vs 4, 2 vs 3)
Of course we thought we had no chance... they had Kim JDSN! He wins every year!
Yet, somehow, we won.
James was our MVP. He kept Kim JDSN from taking over.

So we'll be playing in the CHAMPIONSHIP game next Sunday against Sung's team.

From last place to the championship.

From zeroes to heroes.

Eric: "Who gave you that tattoo?"
Boner: "Your mom!"
Eric: "Come on. Show it to me again."
(Boner shows his tattoo again)
Eric: "Wow. What did that say? Pokemon?"
Boner: "Yeah. Poke your mom!"
Everyone: "OHHHHHHH!!"


I slept over at church last night to help out with the mural for the jr high group.

Those jr high kids are insane.
In the membrane.

It was fun spending some time with kids with such high levels of energy.
They're so carefree and full of spirit, I feel younger when I am with them.
Is that possible? Me feeling younger I mean. I'm pretty immature as it is.

Afterwards, I accompanied Amy with Jason and Andy to get her first-ever cellphone. We went to the place in Cerritos where Hana works, and she wound up getting a Nokia 3360, which is almost exactly like my old phone, and which she named "Camille." We also saw Jen and Adrian there. Ahem.

After that it was time for the VBS dinner at Kimchi BBQ Buffet.
What a horrible name.
It was pretty good though -- the food I mean -- we had 5 people in our table -- me, Doos, Paul, Joe, and J. Lo -- and we ate the most out of all the tables. I just ate meat, meat, and meat. I was still kinda hungry when we finished eating, but I didn't want to eat any more meat, I got sick of it. In fact I'm hungry right now. Damn worms. Leave me some food!

After dinner a group of us rented "Frailty" and watched it on Eric's teeny weeny TV. It was a disturbing movie, and/but/so I liked it. Great story. I wish I could write good stories.

Now I'm here.

I need to pick out songs for tomrrow's worship.
Then I need to practice them.
I also want to read through Ephesians again, and pray.
This is my last day to pray for it.

God, please give/show me the answer.
hahahaa . . .

I laughed out loud when you posted "SoloooOoo . . . ."

Why is that so funny? It still boggles me. hahahaha . . . oh man.

C: Let's try this path over here!
H: I don't see a path.
C: We'll make a path!


For once, there's a lot of things going on in my life.

I'm not sure if it's a good thing.

***

I might be moving again.
My uncle (the same one that gave me a big fat lecture last week) knows this guy who is renting out his guesthouse, and he can hook me up with it. It has a kitchen, bathroom, the whole shebang. What's the catch? It's in Garbage Grove. Home sweet home. Back to the 'Grove. My mom also called few days ago, and told me I should take the offer and move out. So my whole family is pressuring me to go. I think I should. I feel really bad for Steve since he doesn't even have a room of his own, so I feel like I'm taking his spot in his own apartment. And it will be better for me to live on my own, have some privacy. Yes, that will be HELLA nice. I'll probably check the place out this weekend, then decide.

***

I couldn't make it to the big CCC outreach yesterday because I had to work.
Hey, I gotta pay the bills.
I did make it to the meeting afterwards though.
Adrian had asked me to lead praise for the meeting, which I reluctantly agreed to. We only had to do two songs, but I was still pretty nervous about it. Once we started singing though, all that disappeared; I was only focused on praising God. I love praise. :)
The rest of the meeting went really well, as Adrian said.

***

We had our first small group meeting last night.
To tell you the truth, I wasn't really excited about our group.
Just look at who's in our group: Xiao, Seungwoo, David, Ruben, Adrian, me, and Kim JDSN leading us.
Age-wise, there's not much difference, well, except for David. I just don't feel like I could really relate to anyone else, except Adrian. We're the oddballs in our group.

Only three of us showed up: me, Adrian, and Ruben.
I think that's fine.
It should just be us. :)
That meeting changed my mind; I'm getting excited about our small group.
Promise seekers.
Boyz II Men.

Whatever.

***

I have four three days to pray for... something.
Will God give me an answer?

Of course he will.
hello darling buttercup.
let me maul you.

"Life gets easier once your brain begins to die."


It's 11:30 am, and I should be getting ready for class.
But I'm not.

All I have to do is get dressed, and get my arse off this chair.
But I can't.
I won't.

WTF is wrong with me?!

I really should go, especially since we're having a very important CCC meeting about tomorrow's big outreach event.
But, I can't even stay for the whole meeting, since I have to leave early for work.

By the time I get to school, and find a parking spot, and walk from the parking lot (or the street 2 blocks away that I always park on) to class, it's going to be like 12:15.
And I hate being late to class.
Going in while the teacher is talking, everyone staring at you as you try to find a seat.
It's even worse 'cause in our philosophy class we move the chairs and make a circle around the class, so you basically walk through the middle of the circle to get to a seat.
Awesome.

Okay, I've decided what to do.
I'm gonna get dressed.
I'm gonna walk all the way to my car. (I had to park way down on Stanton in a church parking lot since I can't park on the streets here on Tuesday mornings -- the street sweep thing -- I already got a ticket)
I'm gonna go to school.
I'm gonna find parking (in 30 minutes).
I'm gonna go to the bookstore and finally get the philosophy textbook.

On second thought, screw it.

Dijonnaise: that's what I'm talking about. HOLLA!

Boy: change it to something else, then change it back.
But I am quite fond of my template.

Sunday, September 22, 2002

jesssssss
i already changed mine's on ma own!
damn proud of me.
holllllaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
note to people who have their own blogs: update (ie. change) your template, 'cause some of your blogs aren't updating. You HAVE been noticing that little error it gives whenever you publish, right? RIGHT?!

It's only September, but I already know what my favorite movie of 2003 will be.

Kill Bill.

Tarantino doing a kungfu movie.
Brilliant.

It will be better than the Matrix sequels, X2, the Hulk, Terminator 3, and dare I say, the Return of the King?!
Remember, you heard it here first.

Go to my page and take a look at the picture.

Donnie: What's it like to have a wacko for a son?
Donnie's mom: It feels wonderful.



I visited Grams today.

I apologized for not visiting for such a long time, and told her about all the drama I've been going through recently: the talk with my parents, my uncle's lecture, yadda yadda yadda.
I feel like I could tell her anything, because she doesn't yell at me or judge me (anymore).
She just smiles.

Then I played "Hear You Me" for her in a crude, unplugged fashion.
I hope she liked it.

***

Hear You Me

there's no one in town I know
you gave us someplace to go
I never said thank you for that
thought I might get one more chance

what would you think of me now?
so lucky, so strong, so proud
never said thank you for that
now I'll never have a chance

may angels lead you in
hear you me my friends
on sleepless roads the sleepless go
may angels lead you in

and if you were with me tonight
I'd sing to you just one more time
a song for a heart so big
God couldn't let it live
"It's such a stupid question, in my opinion. I mean how do you know what you're going to do till you do it? The answer is, you don't. I think I am, but how do I know? I swear it's a stupid question."

"Psychologist vs. Psychiatrist... Psychologist vs. Psychiatrist... Psychologist vs. Chocolate... MMM..."


Studying with the friends helped me temporarily forget about this crap.

Man we laugh at the stupidest stuff.

You know how you can't laugh 'cause you're in a certain place (i.e. the library) so you try to hold it in, but when you do that the you laugh even harder?
Well that happened like 10 times.

Clara didn't think it was funny.
She laughed too though.

***

Boy: I hope it went well. It's still pretty gay though.

Family jankiness is the worst. I am with you . ..

Literally, you are upstairs and I am walking to you now =)
I got lectured by my uncle today.

I feel so... so...

I dunno what the fuck I feel.

I'm a melting pot of rage, melancholy, shame, and self-pity.

Worst.
Week.
Evar.

Fuck.

Tuesday, September 17, 2002

I just cried like a little baby after talking to my parents on the phone.

I'm such a yuj.
heh
i've gotten that same exact fortune before.
i've gotten many bs fortunes.
thing is, that's not even a fortune.
i don't believe i've ever gotten a real fortune.
odd.

From a Panda Express fortune cookie:

"You are open and honest in your philosophy of love."

WTF?!
Boy: I dunno yet, if I'm free and I have money, I'll probably go.
Speaking of money, where's my money?! :)

Jules: ahhh... you crack me up.
I'm kinda getting used to your impulsive hugs.
"DEATH TO AMOR."
Indeed.
dearest darling mr. Daniel,

hello. thank you for accepting my impulsive hugs when i need to objectify you into The Person Who I Chose To Let My Anxiety Out On.
i choose you because you stand there like a tree and kind of wearily accept it, and make me feel like a freak, but a *special* freak, and i like that.
don't you feel special mr. *hot. young. man.*

mr. daniel: would you or would you not agree that this drama that has beset our lives is very very very disturbing.
and i know a lot about it all, so it's like watching my very own tv show with very wide eyes.
back to the disturbing part. this is all very pathetic.
especially if: in the case of me, and in your case as well, it is all in our heads and seems very hopeless.
but in the case of others, it's real and equally icky and mainly caused by those damned feelings that we call emotions.
DEATH TO AMOR.

mr. h.y.m, do you wish i would shut the hell up on your blog?
i think you do right about now. byebye!
Notting Hill was a dope movie.

Hey, are you coming to the CCC retreat? Let's try to get everyone to go. Sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

Sunday, September 15, 2002

I'm doing good, things are pretty slow but its going. I went to b-ball today with Church and Kim JDSN spotted me and said "oh this guy" He took down my phone number and said where gunna talk. Dun DUn DUN Don't worry about this so called apple, i know she be burning a whole through you with her beaty eyes.

So much drama...



Seems like a lot of people are going through drama these days.
Including me.

***

I'm slowly starting to get more comfortable with the jr high kids.
They're a good group.
There's this cool 7th grader, Esther, who plays guitar.
She can play Michelle Branch songs!

***

This thing with Apple ain't getting any better.
Actually it's getting worse.
Oh lord.

***

You know what's a pretty good movie?
"The Count of Monte Cristo."
Check it out.
Guzman rules!!

***

This week went by really fast, and I think this coming week won't be any different.
Lot of things coming up.
school: psychology test
CCC: leadership meeting, Wednesday meeting, Ignite on Thursday?
church: bowling with jr high kids, weekly praise preparation

***

I just finished watching "Notting Hill" on TV.
Definitive chick flick.
For some reason, I liked it.
Oh wait, I know why.

Damnity damn!

***

I haven't seen Dooj in awhile.
Hope you're doing okay bud.

Wednesday, September 11, 2002

Where they hell do they get these people?!


I don't know if you've seen these "Switch" ads for for Mac's, but someone made a little parodie of it.

I personally think the real ads are funnier.
(not because they're supposed to be funny)

Make sure to check out Jeremiah Cohick (the gay missionary), Ellen Feiss (she's like, a future Pulitzer winner), and Hamilton Morris (the "powerful" 9 year old with deeper voice than anyone I know).

What the damn hell?!


I mean, what the damnity damn hell!

"I learned French for you!"


So you like skinny dorks.
Jules, I love you.
And you wrote "you totally look like the white version of him." Hahaha I dunno if that was intentional or not, (probably not) but it was funny.

sidenote: Edward Norton was friggin' buff in "American History X." Then he got skinny again in "Fight Club." I wish I can change my body like that.

another sidenote: That Bianca girl is cute. Way cuter than Julia Stiles. No way I can get my "Bianca" though.
you totally look like the white version of him.
and he is SO NOT DORKY
he's so hot.
way hotter than stinkin heath ledger.
which means you can totally get your bianca.
he's like hot in the way edward norton is hot.
which means you're hot in the way edward norton and joseph gordon levitt are hot.

get it?
*muah* buhbye


=)

Sunday, September 08, 2002

of course you don't look like him.
he's cute.
which doesn't mean you're not...
just in a different way.
i'll shut up now.
Julie told me today that I look like that dorky kid from "10 Things I Hate About You." (and 3rd Rock From the Sun)
She's the 3rd (har har) person to tell me this.

I don't think I look like him at all.
Except for the skinniness.
There's no person.
It's a phantom toll booth.
You pay, or you die.

Saturday, September 07, 2002

about paying for the toll booth, did you try telling/asking the person that you're just gonna turn around?

"Where da hose at?!"


Dooj and I decided to go to Newport early today so we can ride the killer waves we've been hearing about.

The original plan: meet Dooj at his house at 5:30 am (!) and carpool to Newport. Maybe even do QT.

I stayed up all night drinking vanilla Coke and playing Battlefield 1942 with John. (Adrian you bum, you ditched us.) Then at 5:30 in the morning I went to Dooj's house. I don't think he was awake, since no lights were on, and I didn't want to ring the doorbell and wake up his whole family, so I waited in my car. Then I fell asleep.

I woke up to the sound of my window tapping, with Dooj outside. I looked at the clock. 8 am.

Plan B: go to Newport at 8 and try to ride the killer waves, and fail miserably. Wipe out hard and nearly break my back on the last wave.

We came back home around 10, then rested a little for the next event: Laguna beach with the old young adults. (and more people)
On the way to Laguna, we accidently got on the 133 north freeway instead of south, and since it was a toll road, we had to pay. To get off, and to get back on. A whole dollar.
Laguna was pretty fun. I basically spent the whole time in the freezing water, boogie boarding. I thought my nuts were gonna fall off. Ahem.
We came back around 6, ate dinner at Rubio's, met Keisuke, went back to Dooj's house, watched Paul play Counterstrike (again), and now I'm home.

Good times.

***

I'm leading praise for jr. high starting tomorrow.
Poor kids.

***

I saw Seungho's motorcycle today.
Sweet.

Jules: aroo?
dear daniel.
i'm armed and dangerous.
i need to show you my ammunition so that you can approve of it.
be ready freddy.

My recommendation = LORD OF THE RINGS

There is no other recommendation.

It has to count for something, no?
So just keep doing what I'm doing. Gotcha.

Love advice from Diana. What's next? Movie recommendations from Adrian?
D,
i'm not sayin be a hermit, i'm just sayin be yourself and don't do anything that's out of character for you. but at the same time, make it so that she notices that you're there and that you notice her. so you know, look at her and if she sees you looking at her, flash her a goofy/sarcastic daniel smile or something. make her laugh. and talking to her doesn't have to be hard either. just talk the way you normally do. like make short sarcastic remarks/comments around her, tease her, just normal stuff, ya kno? start it off that way.
I didn't go to any of my classes today.
I was really late for philosophy, and the fact that parking took me longer than usual really helped.
Since I was late, I decided not to go to class, since it wouldn't have done me any good anyway, and went to the student center to kill some time 'till class ended. After about 10 minutes of doing nothing, I went to the library and checked out some books.

I haven't checked out any books since 6th grade.

I got three books: "Franny and Zooey" by J.D. Salinger, "Walden Two" by B.F. Skinner, and "The Best of Ralph Waldo Emerson" by, uhh, Ralph Waldo Emerson. Why these books? Well since I liked "The Catcher in the Rye" so much, I wanted to check out more books by Salinger. "Walden Two" was recommended in my psychology teacher's syllabus, and the last book, I just like Emerson. He's nutty.

I read for a while, then it started raining/sprinkling (actually I just felt three drops), and I just felt like going home.
So I did.

***

Jules: More girls should take initiative and be bold. Of course it's allowed.

Dijonnaise: Wait. So you're telling me to be a hermit, but I should pay more attention to her and let her notice that? AROO?!

Thursday, September 05, 2002

no. don't offer her candy.
only girls can do that.
and forget what i said yesterday.
don't say "how's it goin".
just be your hermit-like self
BUT pay her more attention and
let her notice that.
may the force be with you bonersan.
oh mr. man.
i feel you sir, i feel you.
i'm giving you one month to take initiative and become her friend.
and i'm giving myself one month.
after that, if we fail, our punishment is we marry each other.
ehehehe. just kidding.

mr. daniel ! ~ ! ~ ! you can do it!
give her a piece of candy.
that's gonna be my "first move"
but i'm a girl!
i can't be so bold as you can be.
it is not allowed or proper, is it?
you can do it!
you can do it!
Diana and I just talked for like 2 hours.
About our love life(s).
Or lack thereof.
She said exactly what the others have said: "go and talk to her/tell her how you feel/take the initiative/yadda yadda yadda"

Yeah.

Like it's that easy.

***

Calvin: "What's it like to fall in love?"
Hobbes: "Well... Say the object of your affection walks by..."
Calvin: "Yeah?"
Hobbes: "First, your heart falls into your stomach and splashes your innards. All the moisture makes you sweat profusely. This condensation shorts the circuits to your brain, and you get all woozy. When your brain burns out altogether, your mouth disengages and you babble like a cretin until she leaves."
Calvin: "That's love?!?"
Hobbes: "Medically speaking."
Calvin: "Heck, that happened to me once, but I figured it was cooties!"

Wednesday, September 04, 2002

My mind goes blank whenever someone asks me to make him/her laugh. (usually her)

That's like asking JDSN to preach a sermon. NOW.

I love you too Jules.

NOT.

What "chain?"
Pray for us! The craj spiritual warfare is going on! See you later today @ BIOLA!

Tuesday, September 03, 2002

hahahaha.
i refuse to press the button.
thanx for telling me not to.
although if it were green instead of blue, i might have been tempted.

hi mr. daniel.
MAKE ME LAUGH. NOW.
hehehe.
i like to be demanding.
and having those demands ignored.
it is funny.
you are funny.
girls love funny boys.
i love you.
NOT.
oh dear.
my little "chain" went in a direction it was not supposed to go!

byebye
damn it. i pressed it...
and i can't get rid of it.
jerk.
we have DSL NOW!!!
oopsie~
Don't press the button.
I have DSL again!!!
!!!
It turns out that the DSL was up last Friday, but they failed to mention that I needed to put in my new IP address in my computer. How the hell am I supposed to know that if they don't bother to tell me? I didn't even know until I called technical support this morning.
Friggin' tards.

I've been having really strange dreams... with people I know... what could they mean...?

***

Was that an earthquake last night?
It's hard to tell since our apartment shakes whenever a big truck goes by.
It scared the crap out of me though.
I was playing Resident Evil and the place started shaking right when it was all silent and creepy in the game.
bones in da houze!
HOLLA!!!!!!!!!!!

"Guess who's back. Back again."


After a "long hiatus" (one week) I'm back (kinda).
I'm sure no one noticed.
We were supposed to have DSL in our new place by Friday, but I guess they're having problems with it, 'cause it ain't up.
So I'm blogging at Doojin's.

***

I'll be starting the praise thing for jr. high next this Sunday.
Kinda nervous.
I don't know that many kids in jr. high...

***

I had not one, not two, but THREE dreams about Her last week.
Three In a row.
"Apple."
Not the old one, the new one.
Does this mean I'm a freak?

***

There are so many atheists in our philosophy class.
So when Adrian went up to talk about his personal beliefs, he almost got crucified.
Good thing ze teacher Rowley was there.
