|Well, I finally did something productive .. or not.. and posted
pictures of my room. It's small... really small. It's so
small that I can't even stand back far enough to take any quality
pictures. It's only 157 sq. ft. and about 3/4 the size
of my room last year, but John (my roommate) and I managed to squeeze
everything in without having to loft or bunk our beds. The desks
are right next to each other and the armoires are facing each
other, which makes the orientation a bit awkward, but
it's really the only possible way to arrange the room
to make everything would fit without having to raise
We took off our table shelfs and made a custom staked wall shelf with it.
I have a pretty nice view of Lake Cayuga, if you can see it.
And also of the Bell Tower.
So my room is a lot smaller, but I don’t really mind; all
I'm concerned with is that I have a good roommate now. It feels
liberating. I'm sure some of you may share similiar
sentiments. It's nice to be able to talk to my roommate more than
just once a
month. The dreadful times are over
hope all of you had / are having a great summer. Over the past 3
I visited and spent quality time with my parents in Chi-town, traveled
down the coast to visit Cornellian friends in Sacramento and San Diego
(can't get enough of you guys), and spent way too much time in cl with
kids playing games and killing all my time. But now, it’s time to
get back to
work. I need to get a 3.8 or so if I even want to stand of chance
getting an internship this coming summer and be eligible to study
abroad in England
next year. I think my classes are manageable -- no more writing seminars,
which probably took up more time than all my classes combined last year, and no
more CS database class, which I can’t understand even if my life depended on
it. This semester’s going to be a challenge. We’ll see what
For Fall Break this year, I think my parents are coming here
to visit. We’ll probably be in the Boston area during the 5
days, so lemme know if you’re there and want to meet up. I would like to go home for Thanksgiving
break, but I’m not too sure yet. As for winter
break, my last final is on Thursday evening, so if everything goes well and I don’t fail and drop Econometrics, I’ll be
home on Friday, December 16. Can’t wait
for winter… CES at Vegas and snowboarding at Mammoth. It’s gonna be amazing.
Well, good luck in school for those who have started and
enjoy the rest of summer for those still at home. See you in four months!
|Hello everyone. Now that school is over, I have some time to fix
this xanga page. I've neglected to use this page for most of the
past year for seveal reasons. First of all, when I made the
previous layout in August last year, I was using IE and everything
looked fine. However, when I made the switch to Firefox, I
realized that this page was completely deformed when viewed in
Firefox. Secondly, not only did the layout not show up, my banner
and background pattern were huge and were eating up my 2GB bandwidth
limit everytime I loaded the page. Finally, I was probably also
too busy / lazy to do anything about those problems. Therefore,
because of these reasons, I've pretty much done nothing to this page
So, I kind of cleaned up the layout and kept it more simple. I
made it a Calvin and Hobbes theme and made sure that the page worked on
both IE and Firefox. I usually get sick of my layouts after two
months or so and switch it up, but as you can see from the length of
time between version six and seven, don't expect any new changes
anytime soon. I might add some new pictures to the header, which
is easy, but I doubt I'll be doing anything else.
I miss Ithaca and all you crazy kids that I can't get enough of, but
I'm glad to be back in Torrance as well. I'm probably going to
summer school and working, and traveling to Chicago / St. Louis and
possibly Europe later on in the summer. As far as school went, I
hope I did better this semester than last, although its pretty much
impossible not to considering how poorly I did last semester. I
can't wait to go back to school though. New classes, new dorm,
and new roommate. Next year is going to be amazing.
|I'll be leaving Ithaca at 5:30 a.m. on Friday morning, May 6th, and
will be back home by noon. I'll leave Los Angeles on Saturday
night and be back here in Ithaca by Sunday noon. I hope you guys
have a blast on Slope Day. Whoever records The Game for me will
have my eternal gratitute.|
Today, my grandma was walking home from Levy Adult School when
she was hit by a car at the intersection of Hawthrone Blvd and 230th
St. Paramedics rushed her to the hospital where she passed
away a few hours later. It is truly a tragic event and it is
my first encounter of death of a close family member. It has been
years since tears last rolled down the side of my face. She was
77 and had been living with us for the past 10 years.
She was by far the most altruistic person I've ever known,
and our family will never be the same again. We
will miss her sincerely.
Rest in peace, grandma. You will be in our hearts forever.
Soo, I got destroyed by Cornell this first semester. I started the semester off by fooling around and trying to be social and what not, and consequently failed two of my first three prelims. After that, I buckled down and concentrated on my classes and managed to get respectable grades on my second round of prelims. At that point, I thought I was safe and let up a little, trying to experience college by attempting to balance out studying and playing time. But when it came to finals , I don't think I re-gathered myself to the extent that I should have. I certainly didn't perform nearly as well as I had hoped on my finals, as my final grades brutally showed.
Well, that was all first semester, which done and over with, and there is no sense agonizing and dwelling over it. College is nothing like high school; I am just another freshmen trying to make the transition between the two. Next semester, I'll know what I need to do and will make the appropriate precautions and changes.
Hope everyone's break is going well. Happy New Year!
