||ready for the new year
Happy New Years Everybody!
I decided this year that I'm going to have new years resolutions and I'm going to actually keep them.
I like those hearts so I'm going to use them!
♥Be nicer to Ceci
♥Try not to be so sarcastic
♥Get better grades
♥Don't be so lazy
♥Be more social
♥Try and not to dress so grungy
♥Beat my times in swimming
♥To be more serious about what I do
♥Not to close my feelings so much
♥Eat less carbs so I won't get sick (if I have to many carbs I faint)
♥Lose some weight
♥Try not to be mean
Okay, hopefully I'll do this.

Today was a kind of boing day. Zoe ended up staying for awhile. So when my parents left I had to take care of her and Ceci. David called, asking if I wanted to go do something with some friends. I couldn't at the time, I had to take care of the kids -_-. I never did get to call him back...oh well. When my dad found out who David was he got all worked up about it. He didn't understand that I can have friends who are older than me for some reason.
Plus, I wouldn't want to go out in the streets now. For New Years, they burn dummies of people they don't really like. There is a lot of Bush dummies I noticed. All because of the TLC thing. Maybe I should make one of Mr.Baliey. I can find a bunch of people who would want to burn it.
My mom was asking strange questions to me. Like where do I want to go to college or whatever. I still have awhile to thing about it. She didn't like that I was thinking about Tokyo University with Lisa. I'm guessing she was talking to my Uncle Carlos about it. Since my cousin is going to the University of Texas. I'll probably end up having a few cousins at UT and some at Texas A&M. But I don't want to go to school in Texas. Maybe in California or even PennState. Or if I have to go to school in Texas, Texas Tech or some other school in Waco, I just can't remember the name right now. Why am I typing this?
|didn't go to crepes and waffles -_-
||[29 Dec 2005|10:26pm]
Oh well, but I really wanted to go. Zoe ended up coming over. I don't really like that. She is also spending the night. Don't like that more. Oh well....
I'm really tired all of a sudden. Have no idea why. I'll just cut this post short.
||[29 Dec 2005|12:18pm]
The past two days have been fun. I got to hang out with Laura. It is better than what I was doing before. That was nothing. My sister was driving me insane with here Karaoke game. But now I'm better. I actually got out of bed this morning before 11. ^_^;
Yeah, we went bowling. I'm doing better! Then we went to the arcade and I beat the high score on Soul Calibur, that was really easy to do. The Ecuadoreans are not very good at video games. Well except for Russian but he is only part Ecuadorean. Then she spent the night. But Ceci bugged us the whole time. I wonder why I haven't hurt her yet? hm....
I have to go eat lunch with Zoe....argh
Off to go somewhere....hopefully Crepes and Waffles.
|merry christmas peeps
||[25 Dec 2005|11:37am]
hey people...how was you're alls chritmas. Mine was okay. But like every Christmas I'm sick. So I have to stay in bed all day and "rest." I'm so tired....but can't sleep.
Yesterday, there was some people over at my house. To sum most of it up, I just played Halo 2 with Andrew, Evan, and Nathan. I learned that Nathan is really good as playing with the sniper. But I can write about that for a while. Evan is on crazy kid. We lighted some fireworks off the balcony. We burned the railing.
When I woke up I was feeling sick. Urgh....
I miss watching anime like I used to...i need to go buy some DVDs. Anyone have any suggestions?
||[24 Dec 2005|03:34pm]
I just wanted to wish everybody a Merry Christmas on here. If you don't celebrate Christmas than Happy Holidays!
Why do I always get sick around this time of year?
||[23 Dec 2005|09:46pm]
Before the MySpace frenzy.
Before the Internet & text messaging.
Before Sidekicks & iPods.
Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX.
Before the 5 hours of homework you put off every night.
When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.
When gas was $0.95 a gallon & Caller ID was a new thing.
When we recorded stuff on VCRs & paid $3.50 for a movie.
When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our walkmans.
Hide-n-Go Seek at dusk.
Red Light, Green Light.
Heads Up 7 Up.
Playing Kickball & Dodgeball until your porch light came on.
Mother May I?
The annoying Nano Pets & Furbies.
Playing Street Hockey with the neighborhood friends.
Running through the sprinklers.
Happy Meals where you chose a Barbie or a Hot Wheels car.
Getting the privelage to sit in the front seat of the car.
Watching Saturday Morning Cartoons in your PJ's still wrapped up in your Garfield comforter.
Hey Arnold, Doug, Rugrats.
The original Power Rangers
Or what about:
The Secret Life of Alex Mac.
Ren & Stimpy.
Rocko's Modern Life.
AAAHH!! REAL MONSTERS.
Wild & Crazy Kids.
Clarissa Explains it All.
Are You Afraid of the Dark?
The original 'All That' cast members.
Kenan & Kel.
Who could forget Snick? & Nick @ Nite with Bewitched, I Dream of Jenie, The Facts of Life & I Love Lucy.
Where everyone wanted to be in love after watching The Wonder Years.
Not finished yet.
Kool-Aid was the drink of choice.
Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school.
Class field trips.
When Christmas was the most exciting time of year.
When getting high was swinging on the swingset.
When $5 seemed like a million, & another dollar a miracle.
When you begged to go to McDonalds for dinner everyday.
When Toys R Us overuled the mall.
Go back to the time when
Decisions were made by going 'eeny-meeny-miney-moe'.
Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming 'do over!'
'Race issue' ment arguing about who ran the fastest.
Money issues were handled by whoever was banker in 'Monopoly'.
It wasn't odd to have two or three 'best' friends.
Being old referred to anyone over 20.
A chance to skate as a couple at the local roller rink was like winning the lottery.
The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties.
Nobody was prettier than Mom.
Nobody was cooler or stronger than Dad.
Scrapes & bruises were kissed & made better.
It was a big deal to finally be tall enought to ride the 'big people' rides at the fair.
When playing Nintendo was the hardest thing ever.
When Ninja Turtles ruled the world.
If you can remember most or all of these
than you have lived in the 90's!
|its been awhile
||[23 Dec 2005|03:05pm]
It has been awhile since I've updated....a lot of stuff has happened.
Fist off Thanksgiving sucked. Only good part of it was that I got to eat good food. I had to go to school! Even though it was for a half a day it was pointless.
Luis and Andrea FINALLY got together. And they are still a happy couple. It is so sickening.
I went to go see Harry Potter the day it came out here. I thought it was a good movie. But it was missing a lot of stuff. Mosco was hilarious, because he loves Emma Watson. When she came out in a dress his jaw dropped. I had to close it for him. Then his jaw dropped again, but with his toung hanging out. I had to close it for him again. That happened a couple of times.
Leo started liking Lisa. It was kind of strange.
Sadly, Lisa left back to Japan. And now she is in love with Leo.
However, Leo likes Mila now. A lot of scary stuff is going on. Mila made my spy on Leo. I am NEVER doing that again.
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and stuff. I have to prepare to get sick. I always get sick on Christmas...
||[23 Nov 2005|05:19pm]
I get to go see Harry Potter when it comes out. I have to wait till the second of December but that is okay.
Thank you Luis for reserving tickets!
Fausto today during Pub/Graphic class. Mrs.Faidutti was talking about how she started drinking when he was 14 and that it was bad. Then Fausto says out loud,
"I started drinking when I was 12!"
He was really proud of it too.
Also Luis and Andrea H. better get together soon. Because it's starting to get annoying. Them liking each other and not showing it.
It is driving me insane!
|should be doing hw
||[21 Nov 2005|02:43pm]
||bored and busy
life is kind of confuzing at the moment.
All my friends seem to hate each other. Except for Laura, Andrea H., and I. It is nerve racking. Especially since they all gossip and complain about each other. I hate being in the middle.
I heard that the MUN trip was fun. But I'm not in MUN. 5 people got suspended though. It is so stupid really. The people in MUN are trying really hard not to talk about it. But Mrs.Bitch-Clay (the principal) had to put an annoucement about it. So now the rumors are worse.
Now, back to Tibetan Buddhism....hate homework.

||stupid third world country
It isn't cool that I have to wait till December to see it; while everyone in the US gets to see it now. I guess that is the life of living in a third world country.
|bad week good ending
||[19 Nov 2005|04:16pm]
||I MADE COOKIES!
The beginning of this week I felt really bad. I don't really know why. I think it was my dad, because my mom was in the US and when she is not around hell breaks lose. My dad is really negative towards me.
I was so tired on Wendesday. I went into Paola's office after school and sat in her chair (it is really comfy), and slept for over an hour.
But Thursday and Friday weren't so bad.
Thursday I found out that I really don't sleep much, because of this survey we took. I guess that really isn't a good thing but oh well. Also I did really well in art. I really like drawing still life. I did really well! After school Andrea H., Luis, and I hung out after school. It was kind of fun.
Yesterday was a half day! Only thing that was wrong, was that we got are report cards. I didn't think I did to bad, but my dad still wasn't that happy about it. Oh well. But my mom talked to my teachers and whatnot. They all say I need to put more effort. Which is the nice way of saying that I'm lazy. Which is true. But she also talked to Mr. Guaci (my art teacher) about my drawings, so now he wants to see them. I DON'T WANT HIM TO SEE THEM! I don't know of what I'm going to do.
I also went to the movies with Andrea, Andrea, Mosco, Maya, and Luis. It was funny. We were going to go to one movie theatre, but it was the wrong one. So we had to go to the other one. After eating sushi, we went to go see Red Eye. We all were going to scream at one point but didn't and Andrea screamed alone. It was funny. But then we did all scream at the same time. After we all went to Luis' to see 40 Year Old Virgin. It was good, but perverted.
||[13 Nov 2005|11:40am]
I'm never telling a little boy again that I have old Pokemon cards.
Because the next thing I know, he is asking me I'll give, trade, or sell him cards. Then he is asking me all these questions and it was driving me insane!
|kind of fun day
||[11 Nov 2005|05:19pm]
I proposed to Luis today.
That might have gotten your attention.
Not really. It was something for school. Today was a community service day. And before we went to our site we had to fill out this sheet and do crazy things. Like proposing to somebody. Luis was the only guy around at the time.
It was funny though.
So, today we went to on of the city dumps, Zambiza. It wasn't what I expected. But it always changes, that is what I heard. Luisa, Luis, and I went around passing out food.
One thing that was funny was when Won-Soek, Luis, and I were passing out colors for the kids. The kids where kind of afraid of Won-Soek. They would go away from him. He would ask a kid if they wanted it and they would say no and walk away. But if Luis went up they would say yes and smile. One girl asked, "es chino?" Of course Won-Soek gets mad when someone calls him Chinese because he is Korean. She doesn't know where Korea is, so we told her that Won-Soek is Chinese.
I'm bored....Why doesn't anybody talk online?
||[10 Nov 2005|08:31pm]
Today was Camilo's last day. I know he was going to move, he told me that he was last year. But I didn't expect it to be so soon. It is really sad. Because Camilo is a good friend and all. But Mosco and Luis are planning a trip to Columbia to go visit him or something before he leaves to Peru. I think that will be fun. Just have to ask my parents first.
To think, Lisa is also leaving too this December. It is so sad. I don't want Lisa to go back to Japan! Unless I can go with her! I've always wanted to see Japan.
That is the sucky thing about going to an international school. People leave. Andrea H. might be going to Columbia after this year. And well, I have no idea if I'm leaving or not. Right now it looks like not!
The Loser Lounge is breaking apart. But like Mosco, Maya, and Luis said. "You all might leave and new members will join the Loser Lounge but the original will always be in our hearts."
|Finally finished my paper
||[08 Nov 2005|10:24pm]
You know, gay guys cut peoples hair the best? Really they do! My mom made me go get my hair trimmed and what not. But the guy who cut my hair did I really good job. Plus, he had to be gay, because I've never met a straight guy confident enough to sing Hilary Duff out loud.
I finished my paper for English! I didn't think I was going to get it done.
Why did I take art class? I can't draw still life. But Andrea said she like the picture of the dead bug I drew. It was funny, the people in the other grades where surprised that I would even touch it. They don't know me very well.
Because I'm strange, but it is normal for me. So am I strangly normal or normally strange? That is the question.

LJ Interests meme results
- celtic jewelry:
It is neat really. Plus in Celtic mythology there is a lot of war and stuff.
I live here. It doesn't suck like the other places I lived. But I admit, CC wasn't that bad.
Matters about what you believe in. God, created people and stuff.
- mocking movies:
It is fun to do. Like you gag when people kiss in a romantic movie. Or you make fun of how fake people look or about killing in a horro movie.
It is one way how I express myself. Plus you can make a mess and it will wash off. Actually only if you use a certain kind of paint.
It's a good band.
What can I not like about it? First Vash, he is funny! And likes donuts! Plus how he hates not hurting people even though he still kind of does. And Wolfwood, a priest with a gun and he smokes. Don't see that very much. Also Kuroneko-sama. Awesome!
I really like it for some reason. Don't really believe in it though. But I like Fruits Basket!

I hate it when my parents plan stuff and don't tell me. This morning my mom wakes me up early and says we are going on a roda trip. They didn't even know where they wanted to go. It drove me crazy! But we went to the local butterfly gardens, which was kind of cool. But right now, I'm super tired.

I wrote a poem right now. I don't know if it is any good though. What do y'all think?
And I have something to say
I'm am an expressionist
And a warrior
I have pure inspiration
And a lot of it
That comes from the heart
It will all flow
I'm in my place
And ready to speak out
To all my friends
new and old
also those who want to listen
this is for you to read and hear
here it goes
i'm always clever
and in control
respect and honor
is a big part of me
i'll be where i need to be
even with the enemy
i have what i need and wantso i go on
i hope to be known
in the world real or not
my life alone
is always full
i just barely make it
but still go on
what i want to say
is all in my mind
sometimes it isn't all good
but i say it anyway
and i continue on and on
if everything is going wrong
is still stay strong
to all my friends
who help me keep control
i might leave
when i'm full of pain
but i'll come back strong
no matter what
i hope you all will listen
for i will listen to you
because no matter what
honor is important
the ones i protect
for those who still
read and listen
you are the best
for i might never stop
but only take a break
for inspiration flows
in my heart
for i will always be who i am
a mexican american
and many other things
that is who i am
and who i will always be
no matter what
i will always
let my feelings out
