I’ve never believed in treadmills, they never seemed to cut it for me. Well… the idea of a treadmill never cut it for me. They just never take you anywhere! I hear from people that no matter how long you run on a treadmill, it is never the same as running on ground or around a track. The feeling is just completely different. You can train forever for a marathon on a treadmill, but wen you do the real thing, its just not the same. Getting from point A to point B can never be supplemented with numbers on a treadmill.
Today was just way to hot to run outside, and it was really getting dark. Kathleen said we should go work out! so i said okay!! and i stepped inside a gym for the first time… =O
Ive only ever ran on tracks, hills, roads, streets, sidewalks, but never on a treadmill. IT WAS FUN. Although it never got me anywhere… the feeling of being surrounded by not only runners, but other athletes or people that simply want to work out is a very rewarding feeling after a long day of classes. Thanks for inviting me Kathleen! :D
and not to mention, a guy came up to me and asked if i was Gigi :D turns out he was a guy i met a frat party and i was too drunk to remember him. but now that i’m sober =] i got to introduce myself to him again, by being just myself. He doesnt smoke and drink too. Makes me want to keep up with my goal even more.
missed glee because we were at the gym, but thats okay. thats what Hulu.com is for!
It was kinda a hangout i guess? If hangouts consist of getting drinks/food, talking, laughing and walking whether it be aimlessly or somewhere intentionally, then it was a hangout. (:
Something Different wanted to go downtown to buy a book for a class, and invited me to tag along. So gigi follows, as usual. We didnt talk much on the way there especially on the bus because he was talking to somebody else, but thats okay, i was kinda sleepy, so sitting by myself wasnt a terrible idea or anything. After getting drinks, and chatting a little, we decided it was time to hunt down that book store!!! :D (from now on, whenver i see “do not enter signs” i will think of your joke that somewhat made sense…. O_O )
…I’m almost to the point of this blog…
On the way back to the metro bus station, a half blinded man with a pointer needed help to the restroom. The man came up to Something Different and introduced himself and asked for help to the restroom. Something Different, held onto his hand the whole way and didnt let go of him until they were inside the men’s restroom. After Something Different made sure he was going to be okay, we went out to the bus lot to head back to school.
Most people would ignore this man or pretend they didnt hear him, Something Different, was well.. different. He not only didnt reject him, but he allowed the man to hold onto his hand as they make their way to the station to find the bathroom.
I had an interesting talk with Something Different last night. I had fun and all, but I feel bad because I kept him up and he has class in the morning when I don’t. As of now Something Different is in the bathrooms while I’m waiting for him to come back so I can go back to my building. Thanks for having me over last night. :)
I have so much questions about the future. And i always knew what i wanted, but college hit me and i have no idea what’s going on anymore. Because the future is so uncertain, all we can do is wish for the things we want, and hope for things to happen. But i came to realize that if i want something to happen, i have to initiate it to get it to start moving forward. i.e homework, or relationships, whether it be friends or something more.
Two nights ago, my dorm mate + Kathleen had guests over to sleep over, the boys wouldnt stop talking until 3AM. We thought we were doomed because we saw Paige outside walking around the grounds. Everyone hushed up when thought we were too loud, before we knew it, everyone finally fell asleep.
Last night was something different. Aside from the drunk Wison who came stumbling throught our door and then passing out on our floor, we had another guest for the night. This boy was someone different. He doesnt drink, party or smoke. He inspired me that just because UCSC is known for its weed and partying, not everyone have to give in to it. 4 days ago, i told my cousin that i may be giving in to the norm, and he wasnt so happy with me, and hes not talking to me anymore. but i’m happy to say because of the boy that slept over in our room yesterday, he made me realize that I dont need to do any of that stuff.
As of now, I know for myself that, i will not give in to weed for the first time, and as for drinking, i cant pretend it didnt happen. But i am confident, i am going to stray away from it.
So thats how Frat parties really are. I finally experienced one. I love April, Kathleen, William, Paul and Squidward for watching my back!!! I’m glad you guys made sure i was okay before letting go of my hand. And Kathleeen… you are one crazy girl =P How can you not get tipsy after those shots, oh my. =P April and i knew when to call it quits, but it seems like you could go on forever! hahha
and i lol at you April, for waking up feeling sick ;D AND you have class in the morning, while I, do not! V ^_^ V *peace sign* haha
I really appreciate you Jessica, for trying to get me to stay in the dorm and not letting me out to Biko last night. i’m sry that i still ran out, but i appreciate you for worrying about me.
and it wasnt even from our own college dance. as many ppl noe, UCSC is on a college system where there are 10 different college campuses on one university. I live in Oakes, and our dance is on the 24th. Today was my first college dance, and it wasnt even Oakes!
We crashed Merrill’s after our night time adventure to Porter’s Cave. WOOT
DANG, it was so hot, all those hot bodies grinding on each other and stuff and couples making out all over the place. Haha naturally, most people like to be inside, where the crowd is, and not dance outside surrounding the perimeter. So it was alrite, tryna squeeze ourselves in and blend in with College Merrill students. Knowing well that other colleges were there too. including College 9, 10 and Oakes. Even our Oakes NAs were there. yay :DDD Halfway during a dance, William’s friend was all coming to us and asking us how many different ppl did we dance with, so far it was around 3-4, and he was like “oh no no no, the next time i come back, you guys better have danced with at least 10 ppl!” *hold ten fingers up* I didnt know until later that he was actually drunk. Later on he asked our names, and we told him. He was cool with that. finally when it was time to go, he asked our names again. So paul, william, april, kathleen and i went around saying our names again. But wat the heck….. wen he got to me, he was like “what kind of name is gigi!?” oomg.. -_______-;; he seriously needed to sober up. ahha
but all in all, we made it back to Oakes campus and chilled at Biko House with William, Kathleen, and PJ (William’s roommate) and Paul. We had some gatorade.. and dimsum from the fridge that we microwaved =P after that we seriously need a shower. April had already gone up to Hong-Lim, while i was still chilling in Biko in William’s room. Thank you William for walking me to Hong-Lim to get my shower caddy to shower in Huerta with Kathleen!!
Well, here i am above Jessica Wong, on the top bunk :D about to sleep…
