Vacation is sure fun, but there’s a draw back: my sleep hour is so messed up right now. During my vacation, we usually woke up really late in the afternoon, and slept really late in dawn. When we were on the road, we took turns in driving, so some of us only got sleep of 2x 3 hours instead of 6 hours straight. It was really tiring.

I think I’m having a jet lag (or road lag? šŸ˜•) now. Yesterday was my first day coming back to work and I was so sleepy. Luckily my boss was pretty understanding, and I got my paycheck that I’m suppossed to get early this month, yay. That’s all that I have to post today. I have to catch up with my sleep and with few tv shows that I missed. A friend has recorded some of the amazing race ep 1 and 2 for me on DVR, I’ll stop by his house tomorrow to watch it.

So I went to Vegas for few days and it was so much fun. I did a little bit of this and that, so I didn’t have time to blog at all. Another reason that I didn’t post anything while I’m there was because I had to pay an extra $15 just for 24 hour of internet service, whatĀ a rip off. Well, I didn’t need internet to keep me company anyway,Ā we were so busy getting out from hotel at 1 pm and coming back at 1 am or later šŸ˜‰ Oh, and we met a group of chicksĀ there who were in bachelorette party. Hell that was fun!Ā 

Other than that, I’m not gonna tell whatelse I did over there (although youĀ have the freedom to guess). WhatĀ happened inĀ Vegas, stays thereĀ 8)Ā I’m still out of town tough, next week I have to go back to work. I feel a little depressed by that.

I have been planning to take a break from work for quite a while. Since summer quarter is over, I’ll have a couple of weeks off before fall quarter begins. Where am I going? That’s a secret šŸ˜‰

I’ve told one of my boss that I’m gonna leave forĀ 2.5 weeks, and sheĀ understands. On the other hand, on my other job, I haven’tĀ got a chance to talk to my boss about my plan.Ā On that job, I’ve had about 2 weeks off because my boss was out of town, and the next timeĀ I’ll see him is on Monday. So…onĀ Monday, I have to break it to my boss that I’m going to take 2.5 weeks off after 1 week of working (I’ll be leaving the week after) šŸ˜ I don’t know if it’s a good idea or not, but I cannot cancel my plan becauseĀ I won’tĀ get refund. Maybe I should’ve told him before he left 2 weeks ago. Oh well, if I get firedĀ from that job, I’ll just have to findĀ another job after I come back from my vacation. šŸ˜†

While I’m away, most likely I won’t be able to update my blog either because I don’t have a laptop to bring. I’ve planned to buy a second-hand laptop, but I’m not sure that I’m willing to spend the money. I’ve found a great deal (I think) on craigslist, but I still can’t make up my mind if I need it or not.

So this week, I had a pile of things to do at work,Ā 20 pagesĀ of draft due this week,Ā and finals are coming closer, making me hardly have time to breathe. Thank goodness that there’s nothing much on TV (no more The Mole and I survived Japanese show), that’s an extra 2 hours for me to do something else. But I can’t wait until this weekend, where I can catch up with everything I miss (on TV of course), and next week I’ll have a week off from one of my job because my boss is going out of town. Yay!

So, I’ve been planning to take a few weeks off from work in the end of summer (after this quarter is over), to take a vacation somewhere. I’ll get into that more next week, when I have more time to blog šŸ˜‰ I don’t even have time to moderate the comments, I’ll do that next week too. Until then, cya.

On June 22, summer will be officially on, and I am very much looking for it. However, I have a decision to make for this summer, whether I am going to take summer courses or not. If I do, then I will be as busy as I am now. With 2 part-time jobs and 2 or 3 classes a week, they really drive me to the wall sometimes. And if I don’t enroll this summer, I might pick up a summer job too. However, if I take classes this summer, I’ll be over with my study sooner…

I have 2 more weeks to decide whether or not to enroll for summer class. In the mean time, I’ll think about it when I have time to do so.

And about my phone cards website, it’s been abandonned (NOT for good, I promise). Maybe next week, I can find sometime to update it.

Howdy!

Happy May 1st everyone!

Last time I talked about my first quiz, and last week I had my 2nd quiz. It didn’t turned out to be better than the first one. Actually it was worse than the first one. The teacher didn’t go over the quiz after it was done, but I know that I missed some of the problems.

The thing is, I don’t buy the textbook. Textbooks are just expensive, even for used and older edition. And once I’m finished with the course, I’ll have trouble selling it again because 1)It’s old edition so the bookstore won’t buy it back. 2)I have to sell it online, and I don’t really like it. 3)There are tons out there waiting to be sold too.

So yeah, I don’t have any textbook for any of my classes. I’m not hoping to be a straight A student anyway, I’ll be happy with all B’s. Tomorrow I’m going to have a midterm. It’s pretty nerve-racking because I haven’t had to memorize a lot of things at once. Good thing that tomorrow I get a day off, so I can spend my afternoon studying.

Outside school, job is okay I guess. But I was kinda hoping for raise. When my boss hired me, she said that I’d get a raise after working a month or two. Now, it’s been more than two months, and still no raise, but Friday is payday, so we’ll see.

No Update

Posted on: March 28, 2008

I know I owe lots of blog posts šŸ˜¦ But I haven’t got any time to do almost anything these past few weeks. As I’ve talked on my previous post, I applied for a second job, and I got it. So now, I have 2 part time jobs, and it’s just like having a full time job. And one of the job requires me to work during weekend, so I lose 2 days where I used to have spare time to update my websites and blogs.

Another thing that I talked about is going to school again, and yes, I got accepted at this small university. I’m taking 4 classes, and all of them are evening ones. So, basically during weekdays, I hardly have time to do anything else. And on weekend, I still have to go to work, so I barely have time to do anything else….

I don’t know if those decision in taking 2nd job and going to school again are too much for me. I guess I have to continue for at least a quarter and see how far I can take this cramped lifestyle.

Anxious

Posted on: March 13, 2008

These days I’ve been so anxious about a lot of things. There are a couple of things that I’m really hoping for…

First, a new job. Currently, I have a part-time job, the pay isn’t so bad, but the hour is not a lot. So, I’ve been looking around for another part-time job. Today, I had an interview, and it seemed to go pretty well. I also had another interview last week, but I haven’t heard anything until now. So, I’m really anxious in getting this job, the pay is lower than what I earn now, but the job is easy and they can give me up to 20 hours, which is very nice.

I can use some extra money, but the time that I’m going to spend working will take out some time that I usually useĀ to write on my blog,Ā update my website, Digg,Ā Stumble, and play online games.

Speaking of online games, that’s my 2nd thing that I’m anxious about. I found a game, and I’m dying to play. But then, I have to wait some time until my account can be activated. While waiting, I’ve been doing some research on what character to play, how I’m going to play, and stuff. I’ve even thought of several names for my characters! I really can’t stop thinking about the game that I haven’t been able to sleep well these few days. (Yes, it really happens; I’m not exaggerating.) I really can’t wait to play!

The last thing that I’m anxious about is courses that I’m planning to take. I have been thinking to get a college degree for quite some time. I’ve taken some courses on and off, and I think some of the credits can be used towards my degree.Ā This time, I want to enroll permanently and take some courses every quarter. So, I’ve been talking to several colleges, but I’m having trouble with some paperwork (transcripts and stuff).Ā Also, I’m not really sure what degree I want to take, but tomorrow, I’m going to have a meeting with the Dean, and hopefully he can help me sort things out.

I found this website during my blog hopping. It’s sort of a test of how fast you can type fast accurately. And here’s my result:

65 words

Speed test

65 WPM, not bad huh? I guess I have to thank my boss because of the workload he gave me, I was able to train my typing skill šŸ˜›

Additional note: Hmm, the code that I pasted for the result didn’t quite come out as it should be. There should be a white box with “65 words” on it, and when you click on it, you’ll go to the typing test page. But anyway, test your typing skill and let me knowĀ the resultsĀ šŸ™‚

I managed to do a little update on the website. But mostly I concentrate my time on trying to get people to visit my site. I don’t see the point of having a webpage if nobody visits it. I’ve been blog hopping and visiting other phone card collectors website, introduced myself, and asked if they’d like to link exchange or something. But so far I don’t get a lot of results. But, patience will be worth it. I’m also hoping that people will be regulary visit this blog šŸ™‚ And let me know if they have some suggestions or comments.

Out of the net, I’ve finished one of my project, but I think I still have to proofread it again. I still have 2 more to go for this week, and 1 more for next week. Wish me luck! But I’m not feeling so well. Today I woke up and feel that my throatĀ was so sore… I could hardly talk, thank God today is holiday. Hopefully I get my voice back for tomorrow because I need to work.
