(Here’s an essay I wrote for a scholarship) When I think of college, I imagine independence and responsibility. A college education is important because living in a melting pot of culture and academia on a campus is a worthy life experience. With opportunities flowing in and out of a single place, a college student is able to discover what he or she is passionate about, and pursue those...
(Here’s an essay I wrote for a scholarship, also Tumblr, I’m having a hell of a time formating this text, thanks a lot) Community service is ideally more than a day cleaning a park, hanging up flyers or manning a station at a marathon. While for the high school volunteer these activities are the main course of a volunteer club’s activities, the concept of community service is a...

Sometimes I catchy myself tearing from a movie. Not a heavy flow, but a slight dab is needed. Sometimes the salt reservoirs in my eyes let loose just a bit. I always catch myself and ask “Is it okay to be crying right now?” “How much emotion is this for you anyway?” “Is this the right thing to do?” I spent my whole weekend watching 6 Zaitochi: The Blind...
I think we all do this at some point in our lives. We get to a stage where we sort of just give up of quality. There is a twinge of guilt as we do this, and as we realize our fate, we give in to failure and we try to forget as shame sets in. Replace all of those “we” s with “I”s. Maybe it’s just me. However it’s hard to hold the single pronoun as during...
Whenever I turn on Tumblr, I always float my cursor to the “Text” icon. I feel weird not actually typing anything in this box for such a long time. It’s just that I don’t have anything else to say. There’s something there, but nothing is coming out. Well here’s something. I’ve lost my voice due to a pretty bad cold last week, and while I feel much...
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and while I should be lamenting the day like another “lonely” person, I can say that I am proud of myself this year. I tried not to be lonely this year. If anything, I feel it’s a mile stone for me. I muscled up, and asked, and even though I got rejected, I tried. Maybe next year it’ll be different, but at least, I’m proud of...

I am seriously kind of troubled over missing the Chinatown Street fest twice in a row. The worst part of it is that I forgot the last time it happened, and this time I got sick. I think it may be a reminder that maybe I don’t belong in Chinatown any more. I mean, I know the place like the back of my hand, but it doesn’t help that I feel so foreign there. I feel like doing something...

Well, I owe Cheyenne ten dollars ;- ) The thing with owing Cheyenne ten dollars is that it makes me hungry afterwards and this cold has been an odd appetite suppressant. I’ve probably had like 4 meals in the past 3-4 days. Which sucks, because with all this water, I’ve been shitting liquid. Nothing solid, just brown liquid that is like a dirt yellow color. I’m freaked out...

I will never be the best at Unicycling. As depressing as that sounds, becoming a professional in the competitive yet obscure sport of Unicycling is not a task that I feel is in my future. I think this because I have expectations of me and having the discipline for it isn’t in me, as depressing as that sounds. But of course, Unicycling isn’t my only concern, but the thing about...

Man, I am really out of shape. I was cramping all over the place, moaning in pain. I can’t wait to do it all again tomorrow. Tennis is a fun sport. It feels good to coordinate mind and body once again. Gonna feel like shit again tomorrow too! I’m all smiles.
