Sometimes, when you feel down and under, you would want to just isolate yourself and ask for alone time. Sometimes, alone time is not enough and a hero shows up to your aid. When that hero falls, and you have no one to turn to, but yourself, you have to remember that life’s challenges are what help shape you. [[MORE]] A fallen hero is a hero, nonetheless. Heroes, not the superhero types,...
I haven’t been reading lately. It’s quite a shame…
62. Walk on a log.
1.2.13: Monkey bridge
66. Watch a meteor shower.
10.21.12:[[MORE]] I must say that I was ill-prepared for this meteor shower watching. Craned my neck with my roommates for two hours looking up at the sky. The orionids were quite a fascinating sight. Almost pulled an all nighter, actually. I was working on my post lab for the most part and then from 3 am to 5 am, it was time to head out into the cold, dark fields and watch. I was quite excited...
159. Go camping/rafting.
6.15-6.17/2012:[[MORE]] Boy Scouts of America. One would expect these nature loving people would know how to throw a good outdoor adventure. Isn’t the brochure very alluring? Well, let me tell you that this is no ordinary boy scout troop. This is no ordinary camping trip. This 3 day trip is supposed to encapsulate the great outdoors with family. Hiking, cooking, and star gazing were a few...
129. Cookbook, published.
6/4/12: I participated in a cookbook publishing! YAY! Seafood pasta with pesto reduction was sent to the Food Tech Club for their first ever cookbook. Muhahaha.
A simple mistake can tell me what you aren’t or remind me why I love you.– To remind me to interpret this quote. I haven’t found the time to understand what it truly means or if it’s meaningful.
For the items on my list in which I can’t complete because some other person’s name is no longer accessible, I shall exempt myself from doing that item. However, I shall try to find my away around it and complete the item. Ie: 158. Slumber party with Jackie, Tam, + An. I shall try my best to find three people by those names listed above and have a slumber party with them.
98. Make my own clothing.
2.9.12: As the screen printing class is almost coming to an end, I have earned a skill in printing basic t-shirt designs onto shirts. The idea began when my regular bio teach, Mr. CHEADLE, joked at me for not getting him a shirt from Davis. He had several shirts from other students who attended various other schools, but not from Davis. So, I took up that challenge to take this class and make a...
115. Spend time alone and treat myself out.
1.14.11: Among all the places in the world, San Francisco was the unique place for my get-away. Isolated in a city where no one cares about what you look like or what you do, for that matter. You see, I’ve been trying to escape from my troubles from home. More bad news just piles and piles on. Sure, I’m supposed to take care of the problems before it becomes too large for me to...
131. Search party for friend.
Some arbitrary date of the first week of Spring quarter 2011: Dear Jerry Ngov, Whether or not you were rushing or just party hopping, you disappeared one night. You probably forgot because you got so fucked up during the party. I believe Kim was the one who came and told me that you were missing. You couldn’t be found in the house party. She and another friend went looking around all over...
The Bare wall.
12.17.11: To replace the Stendig calendar that took up so much space on my wall, I resort to my Dandelion list. 29. Draw with crayons. [Not sure if I want to put these drawings on my wall…] 133. Collect colorful bottles that can be hung on a tree to catch the sunlight from the setting sun. [I NEED TO FIND A TREE] 151. Have a board filled with pictures. [I shall buy some cork boards and...
To the people.
To the people who dream of greatness…like me, The media has it wrong. People who dream of greatness, achieve greatness, manifest greatness are all great story lines, but in reality, only a few of us really become great people. Now, I don’t mean we should stop trying to achieve such a goal. I’m just saying, the media is wrong. What is it that is wrong? It is the people who live...
97. Make Churros!
9.2.11: Craving satisfied. Churros made.
126. Big bubble wrap popping.
8.21.11: Opening up the box where the flip phone Mino and Slide is safety encased in the bubble wrap, I decided that the bubble wrap was more important than the cameras and started to pop each bubble. Satisfied. x3
18. Cook surprise dinner for family after [1st...
8~12~11: Refer to the Chau time blog for pics. I made some Rotini pasta that was covered in tomato sauce (blended up from leftovers) and some turkey balls fresh from the oven. There were also some oven roasted eggplants that were covered in breadcrumbs.
The 7th follower.
My tumblr says that 7 people are following me. As I investigated who the people are, I have come to realize that only 6 icons appear. I would very much like to know who you are… Who are you mysterious 7th person?
I could have had a big bubble wrap popping and cross it off my bucket list, but this is such an old post. T.T
17. Iron Chef: Hank Pham vs. Brian Chau
6.25.11: Ten days from today, a culinary showdown will pit a “guardian angel” against the “Next Alton Brown”… A year of training comes down to this very day. What shall the secret ingredient be? Who knows? Whatever is in store, I shall be ready. Ready or not, but I come with full fire power!! If I had a katana, I shall “kat ana piece of pie!” Pun...
6/23 So, after watching the korean drama episode one and two, I ended up painting with the McMafia! That was quite something. I call artwork 1, scooter-ing, and artwork 2, calligraphy in the masses.
141. Watch "You're Beautiful."
6-23 I never knew that I actually watched part of episode 1 while getting a haircut at that Vietnamese hair salon place. I got bored after watching episode one, though…
A friend is one whom I may think aloud.– Emerson (As I have lived in his namesake of a dorm for a full year.)
Some people are strange…actually, we are all strange. I suppose that’s why we call other people strangers, huh? Yeah…I guess so. With our little quirks and squabbles, there is a word that comes to mind, tolerance. The more tolerance you have, the better you are to live with another person. I have always defended other people. I have always taken cared of other people, but what I...
42. Learn how to play guitar.
A work in progress…
Sometimes, I come to question what friendship is. What is their to question?...
Biking back in the cold and rainy weather, I almost fell on the exact...
What does care-free feel like again? I don’t quite remember. Was the summer of 2010 a feeling of care-free? Isn’t that when I had no stress? I had a college to look forward to, three temporary jobs to ease the costs of going out, the work out of volleyball, the fun of partying, the joys of doing new things and crossing off accomplished tasks. Or was my childhood care-free where I...
A smile. A warm day. A chuckle. I had a realization that home is more than just a place. Home does not have to be within the confines of a house, but can include the grounds where children run free, institutions hold their beliefs, memories run wild and experiences, good and bad, define the character of people. A more defined smile has crossed my face. I didn’t realize how much my family...
I am at fault for my own actions. I have been careless with my own bike, Mimi. For that, I have to pay up to $30 to fix up her back wheel. For the wheel is skewed and rubs against the brakes. I am at fault for my own actions. I took for granted my mode of transportation. Walking is fun and all, but damn the heat of Davis. I am at fault for my own actions…or lack of actions. If I have been...
Anonymous asked: Since your other blog for your dandelion list doesn’t have an ask, I have no other place to tell you this but here. I hear today is Dandelion Appreciation Day. It reminded me of your dandelion list. Have you been getting more things done? Yesterday, I could have had no. 131 complete. My friend was missing for a few hours and I could have pulled a search party for him....
160. Food blog.
2.22.11 I have created my first food blog! http://orgy-in-your-mouth.tumblr.com/
Starting today, I will become a better man. In order to do so, I will start Project Post-its! What project post-its is is a revision of who I am. Every complaint, regret, mistake or meddling that I say or do would be written down and put on my Stendig Calendar. I will see this everyday I look at my calendar which is quite frequently, and hopefully, I will correct my wrongs. If not, other people in...
40. Relearn piano.
2.7.11 I’m trying to lean a simple tune from Perpetuum Mobile by Penguin Cafe Orchestra!
I have been feeling lonely, lately. I feel that I have not made friends who I could hang out with everyday. That is not to say that I haven’t made friends. I did or at least, I think I do. The thing is, I don’t know them that well. I don’t feel connected with them. Sure, I see my suitemates and a few other friends everyday, but when they move to South Davis next year, I...
