Hey! I answered your question if you didnt already see
yup! I read it and like it :) Thanks!
Sorry to hear about you not being able to pursue your interest in Jewish studies…but it sounds like your interest in other subjects are just as fascinating.
Mandarin, very interesting language. I had the chance to dabble in it; I took one mandarin class at my school and loved it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t go on to the higher level courses because my class schedule was taken up by architecture courses. I did, however, have the chance to study abroad in Taiwan for 4 months during my 4th year in architecture school. It was amazing. It’s inevitable picking up some of the language if you live there for a while.
I’d agree with you in terms of it being easy for you to take work with architecture international. There are a bunch of international firms out there. The #1 key to finding work with an architecture firm anywhere, I can tell you right now is experience. Sounds to me like you’ve dabbled in experience just by being involved with the renovation of your kitchen. :)
oh and don’t worry, your response wasn’t too long. haha. Hope my response wasn’t too long!
I’m tired of being confined in this space. I’m tired of being scared…I’m tired of wondering. I need change…I need something different. I need to get out of here. Only I have the power to make that change…it’s time. Last year, life knocked me down hard and I did not have the strength to get back up and move on…and life just kept going on without me. I’ve been stuck in the same place for too long by myself. It is true…I have learned a lot with everything that’s happened, but I have not tried nearly hard enough to make a difference about it. That’s my own damn fault and I’m tired of it. It’s pathetic. Fuck this shit. One of my best friends from college who I haven’t seen in a while…recently said “I love my life.” I want to be there. I want to be in a place in my life where I can say “I love my life.” It’s true nothing worth having comes easy but I’m ready…I’m ready to work for it, for a life I can say that I love. I really miss that friend and would like to reconnect…but not while my life is a mess. I want to get my shit together first and just be able to be happy for once, with myself…who I am and with my life. So here’s to life, love, and laughter!
what a night! lol. spent it with 2 best friends and we went out for sushi…the manager came to our table and offered us more than 3 free sake bomb shots…it was awesome….told us to yell bomb when he yelled sake…so we were all bombs!!! “sake!!” “bombs!!” “sake!!!” “bombs!!!” haha it was a great time. plus all you can eat sushi..oh man. what a great night…then back over to my friends house for beers and darts…reigning champion….undefeated..wooo!!! awesome friday night period.
Mostly spent with my dad. He was discharged from the hospital today… although they really wanted him to stay because his blood pressure was through the roof. :/ He’s now, very carefully, monitoring his diet but still in excruciating pain. (lower back, right side) The doctor wanted to do an MRI to find out what the pain is but the damage ($$$) is already high enough as it is, so he decided against it. Hopefully he starts to take his health a little more seriously now with this huge wake-up call.
I forgot to take my vitamin today and I was feeling a little tired throughout the day. Yesterday’s Plyo X was intense…I really pushed myself. Today, was feeling a little worn out so during the Biceps & Back workout…I wasn’t doing as many pull-ups as I should have been doing >.< I am tired though…another long day and I’ve got to go to school early to check on some registration complications for my last architecture class before my degree.
He went to the hospital today to see about a debilitating back pain that he could no longer bear. Without health insurance he knew the $$$ was going to run high to get himself checked…he figured it was worth it to rid himself of his back pain. Unfortunately, what he didn’t see coming was a diagnosis. I saw the look of fear in his eyes when the doctor diagnosed him with diabetes. I can’t say I was surprised but seeing the look on his face was disheartening to say in the least. Not only that, but I knew he was in fear for his life because, what was he going to do without any money or insurance in these economically hard times?… He’s staying in the hospital overnight to start initial treatment right away and talking to social services tomorrow morning about the whole money situation. Update tomorrow on his condition. At least now he has no choice but to stop his drinking…because it’s that or death. I’m praying for him.
