Yearly Archives: 2003

if i don’t make the cutoff for magna.. i swear to myself i’m shaving off my hair.

one down, two more to go.. and then i’m forever free of this scholastic brain stretching. i wonder how i’ll fare in the real world..

i know what i want to do over the summer. i know what i want to do. its just a matter of selecting which one of them i choose to do first. the world is waiting for me, and i’m not too worried about anything else falling into place, cos it seems like it is for now. to think of it, everything is always in place anyway.. its just that some parts move around. its all relative, eh? i guess it’s always just a matter of what you make things to be.. you are, the ambassador to your own world.

i only have one thing to say: hawaiians KNOW how to PARTY.

i haven’t seen anything like it. its amazing. :) now i have a buzzing perpetual headache. who knows what happened last night, now only my camera can tell me. hehehehe. crazy crazy :)

i felt like i’ve been awake for the past three days. had to wakeup early today to drive down to the brazilian embassy and try to get my visa. of course, i need a copy of my plane ticket/itinerary. boo.

i finally finished all my papers for this week. i have one more paper to deal with for ISQM, but that should be okay. the rest of the finals.. who knows? i’m drinking tonight. :)

i am brain dead.

i seem to be stuck typing this neverending “strategic audit” extra credit paper for my management 409 class. for a split second i thought this was the price i have to pay for greed. what a tricky guy, dr. gale. but alas, i screwed my midterm and i need the points. here i am, pawning myself to the educational system that is just about to drive me over the edge..

how much longer will it last?

an all too familiar sight. the midnight lamp burning a golden into our room. those unforgiving sleepless nights where we conquer and detain our fears. well, these are one of the last ones. i never thought i’d make it through today, but here we are. just one day at a time, and its all over! i’m through! i’m done! i’m graduating! yeehaaaaaaaa!! hopefully, we’ll get a photo finish.. i need to make the grades this last sem, and its just that one last push before everything starts to cave in.. wish me luck..

we got free dinner, and free alumni license plate whatchamacallits. the pictures should be up soon from the senior banquet and string of on-campus parties, i just need to take care of this massive avalanche of papers and group projects.

played for the last time at open mic tonight. it was pretty chill, played with andre and JJ. although we wanted a more solid sound setup, it was still a good gig nonetheless. oh well. i just wish i could’ve done this more…

oh, and i randomly decided to go with andre to brasil the day after graduation. now how random is that. out of the blue. this is the peak of spontaneity.. and with that click of the mouse button, i’ve decided to travel around the world. :)

i’m tired. i really am. i just dont want to hurt myself more than i should, more than i deserve.

i had lunch with megs today, and met her friend who has a very distinct resemblance with sarah.. it was kinda creepy in a way.

but what’s creepier is spending 3 hours at the basement of hilton trying to make sense out of a balance sheet that harbors 3 circular references amongst all the entries. talk about mind boggling. of course i spent more time afterwards in the study lounge, bugging ponts and playing our “game” of psychological torture. at one point i stuck the gum she threw at me in her hair, and she retaliated by proceeding to kick my knee inwards. my friends do love me, eh? ;) poink!

what will beat the quote of the week?: “i feel like punching this flat screen and seeing how not flat it gets!” -andre on share repurchasing programs of AZO. fun times, baby.

i’ve realized what i really want to do over the summer: make music. first time i really jammed with other people.. and it was raw, intense, and funky stuff. its the greatest drug of all time, live music.. especially when its coming from you!

have you ever had one of those perpetual headaches? the ones which don’t manifest themselves physically, but the ones that are just there… and those are the ones that are the most annoying.. and confusing. but we gotta put up with it i guess. its those times when you try to convince yourself that you don’t care, but you still do, somewhere inside of you. sometimes i wish i can just shut off some parts of me that give me a hard time, but why bother.. you are who you are. :)

i don’t know why i’ve never heard of this before, but its one of the greatest truths there is.. “everything is always, and never the same.” good call, alana :)

i am sitting on the living room couch, listening to air’s playground love.. while trying to make sense of this mergers model in front of me. i’m about to finish the standalone valuation, i just need to setup the market value of each firm’s current debt. and then i’m probably a third of the way done in completing the model, which we need to write a 15 pager on. yay… i’m hungry!

a night of good open mic performances, and two bowls of nick’s fried rice. what can go wrong? oh, i have an IS midterm tomorrow.. that i haven’t studied for. and its 3am. oh boo.

when you’re tired from washing the dishes after a cook-fest with your hawaiian suitemates at 5am, after going out to watch a blues band in santa monica, when your two best friends are bickering and engaging in a petty fight, that’s when you know that the night was an interesting one. i don’t know about that last one though. but the rest is peachy keen! chalk one up for fun times! :)
