P.S.S. I get my own desk. (!)

Currently, I feel that I've been living life with a lack of purpose. Of course, until today. You see, it's been reading for leisure, playing video games, and... sleep? It's been nice, but where's the greater incentive to it all? I don't see my life moving forward from all of this. But today. I went to my "internship" and we finally laid everything out. It'll be an extensive 4 weeks, but it'll whip me into better shape within the field of graphic design and visual communication. I'm excited, but also scared.
I also heard back from another internship I applied to with a health clinic, where I will be assisting with their marcomm biz. I need to go in for an interview... but granting I passed the phone interview, my chances aren't so dampened. ...right? I think it'll be exciting to commute a bit, and considering that it's only an internship (aka not permanent), I won't be too bored or start disliking work too, too soon.
So there. My summer has suddenly turned a 180 and I'm in for some jam-packed days, even if I don't get the health clinic internship. Wish me luck... with whatever comes my way :]

Somehow this leads to me feeling excited about taking on creative projects after I graduate. I can't wait to work with personal visual projects, from more vector art to Flash Macromedia. I can't wait to pick up my pencil-deprived drawing pad for a flip. I can't wait to take on amateur photography at scenic spots. I can't wait to read for FUN (I got a list of books going already).
Although I've been stressing out about not securing a job by now, I know it will come and I will be okay. So for the mean time, I'm trying to appreciate what is "securely" good to come! ;)

Afterwards, we went to SF Japantown. I thought we would spend a maximum of 1 hour there, but 3.5 hours elapsed somehow. We saw many cute things and gave into such cute persuasian by purchasing and pinching our wallets. I saw some things I really liked but couldn't bring myself to buy it, so instead, I took pictures of them! Hahaha :P

I went to Shanghai Dumpling King in SF with Max on Saturday before DCON, where I got to try xiao long bao, lion head meatballs, tread bread, savory soy milk, spicy chive and pork dumplings, and decadent sugary goodness egg puff pastry! The place was packed! We waited a good hour before we were seated. They delayed our order, which set off our tummy's temper :T Supposedly, they dropped the order sheet on the ground, so our order never made it through. Grr. Food overall was pretty delish, though! I would like to go back, especially for the dumplings and egg puff pastry (in which, got awesome reviews on Yelp!)
On Tuesday, I spent the whole day with my best friend to celebrate her 22nd birthday. :) We went to Red Robin for lunch and Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Then we hit up BJs for drinks. On Thursday, I had dinner at Sushi Factory, an all-you-can-eat place, with the bestie, her boy, and my boy ;). We stuffed ourselves silly and made our ways to D&B's to play games and I guess, again, drink.

I contributed my currant oatmeal cookies. They came out terrible, though. I didn't have enough oats :( Damn oats.
Cousin and I went to House of Curries and hit up Cafe Milano. We updated each other with every aspect of our life (well-needed at that).
Our next date will/should be when Crossroads or Cafe 3 has our beloved tomato bisque soup. Can't wait!

So ... what happened on such a commercialized, overrated holiday? :P I used it as an excuse to go out of course! Hahah. Max and I went to Crepevine (again!) for lunch. I enjoyed a club sandwich and he got a New Orleans Benedict -- English muffin, crab cake, poached egg, and thousand island (?) sauce. Man! Every bite was an explosion of flavor. I definitely want to get it either next time or the time after or... ;) I just know I'll be coming back again hehe.

We dropped off Becky a little before 4PM because she had a BBQ to go to. Alice and I made our way to Emeryville and enjoyed each other's company sipping Starbucks and wholesome (haha) shopping at Bay St. We left with a little bag of Teacake Bake Shop goodies and Abercrombie jackets. Oh! And Fuddruckers to-go. We were happy campers :)
We picked up Becky and we all ate massive Fuddrucker burgers for dinner while watching Desperate Housewives. So twisted!! Anyway, to end the night, we hit up Blakes' for a round of drinks and got the munchies so I drove Alice's car to Safeway for a frozen pizza. :P

Soooo... I went to Barnes & Noble today with my roommates because Alice wanted to find a GMAT book. Of course, I didn't mind because I wanted to swing by the children's section for some Paddington Bear literature ;) The first thing we noticed were bins of books all on sale for $1! Rummaging through, I found a book titled, "I've Seen a Lot of Famous People Naked, and They've Got Nothing on You!"
Yeah... I know, right? But quickly reading from the cover flap, I discovered it was a business entrepreneur book. Awesome! Skimmed oh-so briefly and decided to buy it. I looked up later on Amazon and it's listed at about $17. Oh good deal. :)
Oh, and about catering to my deprived-Paddington childhood? Fail. They only had ONE book about Paddington Bear. It turned out to be a novel and was a new story about him. I wanted to learn about this character from the beginning. Le sigh.

I never heard about such a character until this year. I instantly recognized Alex's Paddingbear stuff animal when I saw the little guy tucked away between the futon and Max's mean backside.
I forgot how my interest came about, but how can I resist learning more about him when this anthropomorphised little bear favors maramalade sandwiches and cocoa? I've gone to his website and got very little information about him and wish I can get my hands on some of these children books. I think I'll be curled up at B&N sometime reading these, for the sake of my deprived-Paddington childhood! :)

I've reflected a lot this week about how these sad, cruel moments are a part of life. How we react to life changing, permanent, events... with denial, tears, and acceptance. How people get older... to the point where outspoken personalities can't even cover up the aging lines. How the future looms in front of me... and the decisions of its outcome depends on the immediate steps i choose to take. How life continues, not slowing, and doesn't care where you are and how you are.
I've cried. Just did. And I hope that's the last of it. Right now it's best to move on and make the best of it.
