- I have folded 400 cranes. FOUR HUNDRED. I am getting pretty good at it! I can fold cranes ANYWHERE. But still. That's 700 to go. Dang. (That's 200 more silver, 500 red. Should our koi face each other? Or should they be going in a circle like a yin/yang thing? Blah, idk.)
- House is really one of the most stressful things I've ever gone through. But I really do need to suck it up because there actually is a significant dollar value for doing it this (stressful and difficult) way and yep. It's 100% worth it. Or so I tell myself. Gosh, I feel so bad though, I need to learn how to handle it better. I come home and I'm grouchy 80% of the time. Either from work, dealing with the house issues, or I can't find freaking parking.
- I've had a weird pinched nerve somewhere that gives me carpal tunnel feeling symptoms in my right arm. I wonder if its from bad posture at work (probably), bad form during P90 (probably also) or if I just slept funny.
- But on a better note, I was a bit apathetic about having to watch Season 2 of the Walking Dead but I'm really enjoying it so far! It's a lot funnier then I thought it would be.
Escrow. Noun/Verb. A contract or agreement deposited with a third person by whom it is to be delivered to the grantee or promisee on the fulfillment of some condition.
Whenever I see the word, "Escrow," I think about Scarecrows. -
Who takes their fridge when they move??? It must have been a nice, beautiful fridge. Or maybe they'll turn around and say, "Hey, I just took the fridge for a minute but you can have it back now. Heehee." I wish. -
Addresses Addresses Addresses Addresses -
Speaking of addresses, is it bad form to not invite one or two people in a certain group? IE: There is an ass who is very mean to me in a group of about..10 people who are all really nice. Can I invite everyone except him? :) -
I'm over Greek Food. I don't really miss it. I'm a bit over sashimi too. The thought of consuming large quantities of delicious fish (or sushi) hurts my stomach, a little. I'm so boring now. I think I could live off of Peanut Butter/Hazulnut Butter (not nutella but it costs double as much)/raisin sandwiches for days. Oh, and that ridiculously expensive vegan lasagna that I've come to love. *sigh* -
ONE I've been working out at KBay for the past two weeks, which means Fred the Focus and I have been going up and down the Pali (and H3) all week. And perhaps its all just coincidence but for every weekend that we've been out there, someone has died going that way. I should remember to take all those turns slower. And to have my breaks checked out. I have one more week out there, and then a two week break. And then another three weeks.
TWO Dealing with loan officers and escrow people (and inspectors and appraisers) is a kind of a very stressful process! Maybe its just my realtor (who means well and is a very nice guy) but damn. Idk. I have had stress headaches more times in the past couple weeks then in the past year.
THREE I am happy that my friends are all getting jobs. I ran into an old friend at the mall yesterday, I haven't seen her forever! She told me that she and another old friend both work and have lunch every Tuesday. And another friend got into orientation somewhere. DAMN I feel old. I'm going to be 26 this year.
ONE. Damn. UH is a touchy subject for me. I agree whole heartedly that if you can afford to send your kids to a mainland college, that's awesome! They'll learn to live on their own. I also totally agree that UH isn't the best school out there, but c'mon people! It's not THAT bad. It is entirely possible to graduate on time and have fun. I did it (yoga, part time work, honor society) and I know at least 30 people who did it also. I realize that big class sizes (in the beginning) and a commuter campus aren't for everyone but I get irritated/upset/frustrated/SUPER PISSED when people blame the school for their own shortcomings. So you partied your heart out, failed that important class, couldn't get into the class you wanted because of it, and now you're going to graduate in 7 years. OH and you don't even take the full course load (12 credits?). It's all UH's fault, right? Of course. Give me a break! I have no sympathy for you. Ever heard of hard work? Obviously not.
TWO. Dinner. We are regulars at Goma Tei. They know our order and put it in as soon as we sit down. I love that Tan Tan broth more than anything--it's flavorful but not overpoweringly so. I eat Vegetable Tan Tan with some pieces of char siu from Brandon. Addicting. (I feel like I have grown out of sweets. I love chocolate but savory is my favorite taste now)
THREE. Dogs. I would REALLY love to have a dog. I love my family dog, Frank, but if I could, I'd own a Shiba Inu. Unfortunately, this is probably a no-go dream because we'd be gone all day and future puppy would be lonely. I'd feel bad. Maybe we'll get a cat. At least there would be no roaches, right? *fingers crossed*
Bonus: Argo finally made it to the top of our Netflix queue a couple weeks ago. Man, I haven't watched a movie that good in a long time. Was it because of Bryan Cranston? (WALT!!! I love Breaking Bad) #Argofuckyourself (hahahaha.)
It's going well. No-white showing is not a problem for me, it's more of a...I can't perfectly hide the tail and head/neck behind the wing tips that's the issue. A totally justified issue also--it's like hiding a thin pointy object behind another thin pointy object. Now it seems like its less patience and more PERFECTION OMG.
A friend of mine is going to make hers into a...bonzai crane tree. It's creative different! And will also be cheaper. But idk, it's not me.
Blah, I better jump back on the wedding planning train soon. I took a two week break to relax (since I was ahead) but I can't give up my lead! Back to folding.
And gathering addresses. I should start asking for help with getting those. Hmm.
(RANDOM- Watched Anna Karenina last weekend. I didn't realize now that the "handsome" Russian officer guy that steals Anna's heart is KICK-ASS. Omg seriously?)
