So they say…

… that what you’re doing on the 1st is what you’ll be doing the rest of the year. I’ll be cooking, cleaning, singing, eating, and sleeping. Not a bad start, I think.

2012 Shuffle

Opening credits: Close enough to start a war, all that I have is on the floor…

Waking up: Something always brings me back to you, it never takes too long…

How I’m feeling today: Baby, you’ve got the sort of hands to rip me apart…

First day of school: I found God at the corner of First and Amistad…

The weekend: Galileo fell in love as a Galilean boy…

Will I get far in life: I don’t know if I can yell any louder…

Will I get married: Are you listening, Javelina? Every corner of the coast is still clear…

Will I have a happy life: I am the sea on a moonless night, calling, falling, slipping tides…

How does the world see me: I never thought that you would be the one to hold my heart…

How do my friends see me: This was a triumph, I’m making a note here, “HUGE SUCCESS”…

Falling in love: Now here you go again, you say you want your freedom…

Fight song: Hand out the window, floating on air, just a flick of the wrist, and I am waving you goodbye…

Breaking up: We watched the season pull up its own stakes…

The best thing about my friends: I’m caught in a moment out in the rain…

Best friend’s theme song: I watched the morning dawn upon your skin…

High school overview: Don’t delay, something tells me I gotta go away…

Life: Keep drinking coffee, stare me down across the table while I look outside…

Mental breakdown: I wake up every evening with a big smile on my face…

How can I make myself happy: If blood will flow while flesh and steel are one, drying in the color of the evening sun…

Driving: I have been blind, unwilling to see the true love you’re giving…

Flashback: The sky looks pissed, the wind talks back, my bones are shifting in my skin, and you, my love, are gone…

How is my life going: She’s out of my life…

What I should do with my life: A beautiful and blinding morning, the world outside begins to breathe…

How can I get ahead in life: I’ll start this broken heart, I’ll fix it up so it will work again, better than before…

Getting back together: We were sitting, we were sitting in the strawberry swing…

Wedding: Ninety miles outside Chicago, can’t stop driving, I don’t know why…

Will I ever have children: Tell me his name, I want to know…

Birth of child: Met my old lover in the grocery store, the snow was falling Christmas Eve…

Final battle: Starry starry night, paint your palette blue and gray…

Death scene: No words, my tears won’t make any room for more, and it don’t hurt like anything I’ve ever felt before…

Funeral song: Right, right, turn off the lights…

Life overview: I wish I were pretty, I wish I were brave, if I owned this city, I’d make it behave…

End credits: They say that home is where the heart is…

  • To anyone looking for an absolutely delicious lunch or dinner on a very special occasion (or a perfectly ordinary occasion, but be prepared to spendddd), I highly HIGHLY recommend the Brown Dog Cafe on Pfeiffer. Go hungry and make sure you share a display, have an appetizer and a salad and an entree and dessert, and if you’re over 21, have fun with their insanely extensive wine/beer/martini/liqueur menu.
  • officially has two new Kuyas =) *happy*

  • what if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near? what if the greatest disappointments or the aching of this life is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy? and what if the trials of this life, the rain, the storms, the hardest nights, are Your mercies in disguise?

  • ‎”Has it ever struck you what an odd creation Merlin is? He’s not evil: yet he’s a magician. He is obviously a druid: yet he knows all about the Grail. I often wonder whether Merlin doesn’t represent the last trace of something that became impossible when the only people in touch with the supernatural were either white or black, either priests or sorcerers.”
  • Stef Ofhfs Mother. Pg 11 of THS. “… some men have got to take charge of the rest… sterilisation of the unfit, liquidation of backward races, selective breeding. Then real education, including pre-natal education. By real education I mean one that makes the patient what it wants infallibly: whatever he or his parents try to do about it. Of course, it’ll have to be mainly psychological at first. But we’ll get on to biochemical conditioning in the end and direct manipulation of the brain…”
  • ‎”What should they find incredible, since they believed no longer in a rational universe? What should they regard as too obscene, since they held that all morality was a mere subjective by-product of the physical and economic situations of men? … There was now at last a real chance for fallen Man to shake off that limitation of his powers which mercy had imposed upon him as a protection from the full results of his fall. If this succeeded, hell would at last be incarnate.”

And… when they found out that it means nonsense, Paco said, “No, no, ate, you know what it means? Tsetseburetse equals… hindi sen-see-bul!” and now the boys have even made up a song…
    “Tsetseburetse, tsetseburetse, tsetseburetse equals… hindi sensible!!!!”‘

  • i’m in the honors lounge! again… lol… wasn’t planning to be, but there we go.
  • sometimes, you have to allow for a day that cannot be a “keep smiling” day, but merely a “grit your teeth and keep going” day. a little downton abbey before the grind, i think. some prayers wouldn’t hurt, either.
  • Dear God, Mama Mary, and Guardian Angel, YOU GUYS ROCK. This little girl could not stop smiling and laughing and singing everything Hillsong United all the way home =) ~ so i’ll stand with arms high and heart abandoned in awe of the One Who gave it ALL ~ Off to Adoration with the fam!

  • trying to remember now who those seven people were… i don’t think i’m even friends with all of them still. Lol. — with Jeff Cooke and Joe Blocker.
  • I have determined that I need to hang out downtown more. I strongly object to an already forty minute drive home from work being sixteen minutes longer than usual due to weekend ramp closures and four detours which rendered me completely lost and that much more sleep deprived. Way to end week 8, yo.
  • 9/11… miserere nobis. And to think Yena was still in Mommy’s tummy when all of this started. Anxious to get to Mass with the whole fam (boys just got home from their canoeing trip).

    me: Yeah, kinda… Except for the wine?
  • Brunch with Anna Marie Ridenour before work =)
  • RED NECKERCHIEF. ’nuff said. end somewhat bumpy day 31.
  • ell, they liked it. my fav lines are: “if we could just find some bricks and put, like, a dozen on each layer… then we have to figure out how to get it upstairs…” – Jay Olzak; “unsweetened flaked coconut; question mark?” – Thomas Bella
  • home from day 32. end week 9. best week yet for laughs =) and best thing ever coming home to a chorus of “hi, ats!” from three little sibs ♥ oldest of four sibs is already asleep, hahaha.
  • yiii. rather chilly afternoon to be heading to KI (took me a few seconds to remember that it’s not PKI anymore)… i object to fall showing up so suddenly.
  • Sooooo cute hearing the 2-yo say, “longganisa.” Speaking of which, toast + longganisa + white cheddar. Pretty awesome breakfast to start off a day of… getting-ready-for-the-school-year-cleaning… >.<
  • Advanced Asian is now available on Blackboard… Looks like my class isn’t that small after all!! There’s nine of us, and I know half my class off the top of my head =) Hahaha. Schweeeett.

  • Tomorrow’s going to be a good day. A making-limoncello, coffee-with-the-guys, Scripture-Study-and-hot-cider kind of day. It’s going to be excellent.
  • Stepped out of my room into the hallway and 21 Guns is playing from somewhere in the house. I think I’d forgotten that song existed…

  • a) two words for you, Alice Swadner: Beet. Salad.
    b) Michelle Johnson if you were in town, we’d be hanging out every single thursday because on thursdays i’ve got four hours of downtime just ten minutes away from your house.
    c) it’s an incredibly good thing when one gets up at 0445 and at 1600 is totally looking forward to work being the best and most enjoyable part of one’s day, isn’t it?
    d) unless of course, one intends to have coffee and chit-chat tons and tons with Stephanie Boertlein =)
  • Dear UC Asian Student Welcome organizers-who-want-to-know-what-the-Asian-Students-in-question-hope(d)-to-get-out-of-attending-said-Welcome,Knowing the size of last year’s graduating class and what percentage of it was Asian is not going to get me a 4.0 this quarter.I am not asking for an Asian posse. All I want is just -one- college Kuya who is -actually- Pinoy and wears a Scapular, is totally up for a jamm session or a Bourne marathon or Jet Li’s Fearless anytime, will teach me breakdancing and how to use a balisong, will practice arnis and chako with me, and who will speak to me in anything but English 50% of the time.Thanks for wasting two hours of my life that I’ll never get back.ais
  • hay nako! TARAY!! kung pwede lang umiyak… >.< but then one becomes more conscious of the many angels who constantly and consistently go out of their way to keep one smiling. on a better note, i might have to help pacs clean the basement before the next potluck just so jason and i can throw stars =)
  • Would any of you like to come with me? — with Sylvia Ulmer and 20 others.
  • this is my prayer in the desert when all that’s within me feels dry, this is my prayer in my hunger and need; this is my prayer in the fire, in weakness or trial or pain; there is a faith proved of more worth than gold, so refine me, Lord, through the flame; this is my prayer in the battle; all of my life, in every season, You are still God; i have a reason to sing, i have a reason to worship… this is my prayer in the harvest when favor and providence flow, i know i’m filled to be emptied again, the seed i’ve received i will sow…
  • Stef OfhfsPaco Josemaria P
  • GOT IT. =) Enjoy. (He speaks a little fast and skips a line, but I hope you’re able to follow… lol) — with Nate Eckman and 7 others.
  • Tricky Chris we’re making beef rendang in class tomorrow =)
  • heading into an 18-hour day entirely devoid of any breaks of any sort on 4 hours and 52 minutes of sleep is probably not a good idea. we’ve established that i’m insane, yeah? well, here goes the sleep part. or, you know, the lying awake until 3 waiting for the adrenaline to wear off part. i think i’ve half forgotten why i do this to myself…
  • end day 39… natapos rin sa wakas…


  • home from day 40…. yay teamwork =) oh no adrenaline >.< here’s to some kill bill tonight :P
  • pizza… beer… downton abbey… WIN ^_^
  • three pages into this lab analysis thingy. whew :/ today was a YAY-for-super-Kuyas Steve Leisring & Josh Monroe school day =) fetal duck eggs and kusari fundo and common sense and ♥ and bear hugs are a perfectly wonderful way to precede a work week.
  • WOOT.
  • i have pics with steffy and brad & brad and steve. why do i not have a pic with brad -and- steffy -and- steve? this is a problem. it is extraordinarily frustrating. similarly, i have pics with nate and michelle & michelle and kit, but no picture with nate -and- michelle -and- kit. i object.
  • yay! chem exam 1 completed early = half an hour of free time… to try and finish this lab analysis. lol.
  • rediscovering music while completing lab analysis (i’m on the last question… yay!) Tricky Chris i found… red jumpsuit apparatus’ your guardian angel. hahaha haven’t played -that- in ages.

  • five-page lab analysis… or a ridiculous amount of latin translation and parsing. one or the other -must- be completed tonight before the adrenaline wears off. i truly enjoy and adore both instructors, but the timing on this latest latin assignment is perfectly horrendous.
  • ~ i’m so sorry i’ve been so down / i started doubting things could ever turn around / and i began to believe that all we are is material / it’s nonsensical ~
  • bumping into an old enemy/stalker – as in, from three years back – who, within ten minutes, proves that they are just as keen on stalking as they ever were, is a perfectly valid reason to order one’s birthday weapons five months early. i HIGHLY object to this most unwelcome and completely unexpected meeting.
  • Let nothing
    disturb you;
    nothing frighten you.
    All things
    are passing.
    God never changes.
    obtains all things.
    is wanting
    to him
    who possesses God.
    alone suffices.

Christ has no body now on earth but yours,
no hands but yours,
no feet but yours,
yours are the eyes through which Christ’s compassion
is to look out to the earth,
yours are the feet by which He is to go about doing good
and yours are the hands by which He is to bless us now.

  • I realized that Let It Rock and Matthew Almario are inextricably linked in my mind when I heard it for the first time in ages and ages on my way home from work tonight, and I’m not even entirely sure that I remember -why-… ??
  • Should I know better than to assume that fifty-six minutes is a sufficient length of time in which to legally make it from Liberty Township to Blue Ash at 7:04 in the morning? I seriously think that’s pushing my brain cells a little too far. On a bright note, toasted batard + fresh tomatoes + mozzarella di bufala + fresh basil = best lunch & breakfast ever. Thank you, Mommy Stef =) Currently chilling at Panera to keep out of creepy high school stalker’s way.
  • Tomorrow’s going to be SUPER. Pics fo sho.

  • i am four days behind on the 100 day picture challenge, because day 92 stipulates “Something weird in your house.” someone *else* needs to come into my house and find something for me, because i have no idea what is ‘weird’ by other people’s standards. i think everything in my house is perfectly normal.
  • i wonder what it’s like for the ‘rents to be hugging the 20-yo kid and the 2-yo kid at the same time. while watching star trek. lol.
  • yay for lunch with fr. geoff and marv =)
  • today’s been a motion city soundtrack ~ even if it kills me kind of day. i don’t know why, but i strongly suspect that it has something to do with november.
  • a new hobby = speeding mcs up to 128 bpm. lol.
  • praise God for sunshine and chai soy lattes beginning a potentially seventeen hour day ~ He’s more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens / as close as a heartbeat or a song on our lips / someday He’ll call us and we will come running / and fall in His arms and the tears will fall down and we’ll pray / “I want to fall in love with You”

  • if i actually finish this lab analysis tonight, i’ll have zeroooo homework to do for the rest of the week… aside from any latin hw i might be assigned tomorrow. bother. lol. *so close…*
  • Which time she chanted snatches of old lauds / As one incapable of her own distress / Or like a creature native and indued / Unto that element: but long it could not be…
  • “Tedious? Yes. But rewarding. I don’t have to *buy* a drum machine, I can *make* one.” Stef Ofhfs guess what we’re programming in class today xD it’s AWESOME in every way possible.
  • well, that was fun. the pizza never came, but that’s ok. i just had foie.
  • never take a chem exam on less than four hours of sleep. how this could have been avoided, i have no idea, but don’t do it.
  • hah. hah. haha. also on less than four hours of sleep, on top of a chem exam first thing in the morning, i do not recommend a dental procedure which necessitates certain restrictions and following said procedure with class and work, thus preventing one from eating anything of true substance for eleven hours and fifteen minutes straight.
  • Kuya Judd, Kuya JunixMatthewGabe, i’m alive. and i’m still asian. just wanted to let you know. if any of you were home, i’d offer you green curry chicken that has one green chile in it for every ounce of chicken. it’s a -little- hot. but it’s good. and cod with shrimp sauce and talong and sitaw, wrapped and steamed in banana leaves. and if there was any left, a twist on turon with butter and more brown sugar and lots of rum.
  • it’s gotta be more like falling in love than something to believe in, more like losing my heart than giving my allegiance… caught up, called out; come take a look at me now, it’s like i’m falling… it’s like i’m falling in love.
  • with my eyes closed, all i see is the skyline through the window, the moon above you and the streets below…
  • ehhh. 99% on my second latin midterm. is it the homeschooler or the asian in me that isn’t thrilled? Stef Ofhfs speaking of which, i’m not normally conscious of it, but walking through CCM today, there are sooo many tight little groups of asians standing around chit-chatting, and i wonder why can’t -i- have a nice little group of asian friends at college to chit-chat with in my own language, too? xP fail.
  • I was standing outside and thinking what a miserable morning it was, weather-wise. Then a super awesome friend smiled and asked, “Isn’t it nice?” and indicated the rain. There was truly no better way to spend this stormy morning than at MCI, wandering around and catching up with several of my favorite people. God is so good =)
  • Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, the bowels of mercy, benignity, humility, modesty, patience: Bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if any have a complaint against another. Even as the Lord has forgiven you, so do you also. But above all these things have charity, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of Christ rejoice in your hearts, wherein also you are called in one body: and be thankful.
  • Jet Li’s Fearless always makes me weep. Like, really weep. Hehe, poor mom, outnumbered by the entire family in choice of Thanksgiving movie xD
  • what can i say? life is beautiful.
  • it’ll be weird walking into work and saying “good morning” instead of “good afternoon.” if it were mci ops, i’d be dishing out and happily receiving good morning hugs, but i don’t think we’re quite there yet. or not even close. oh well. so, not that i went black friday shopping, but…1.

  • Dearest Wheelock,
    It’s been a long time since 5th grade. My older, more mature, and more appreciative self wishes to declare the deep and sincere affection that I have developed for you over the past ten weeks. While I firmly intend to never allow my love of Latin to be sullied by being made to read from you out loud and pronounce everything classically as opposed to ecclesiastically, I am going to keep you and study the rest of you on my own time at home.
