September 30, 2005[@] <-- supposed to be a camera.
its fall break and i don't know why i'm up so early! i woke up at around 7:30am. so here i am, uploading some more pictures that have accumulated in my camera.
yesterday was a really good day so i bought 2 pairs of earrings! euphoria leads into impulsive shopping. and i reserved a skirt at zara cuz it was perfect for international night. yay! i'm soooooooo excited.
See You At The Pole

mandarin field trip! i was the sneaky camera woman :)
oh silly mrs butron
we love the camera.
last night, the zit on my nose erupted and thanks to clearasil VANISHING pimple cream, this horrifying growth on my nose has shrunk over night. yay! vanish! vanish! vanish!
September 29, 2005loves it.
yesterday, i got to conquer yet another ben and jerry's ice cream flavor!!!
it was good, but really really sweet and peanut buttery- hence the description below the name (they mention the word "fudge" and "peanut" twice each).
i am still wanting to try the mood magic flavors.
i hear that great world's gonna open an outlet. YES!
audition for international night went well even though i messed up really badly. but hopefully no one noticed.
prayer meeting was a lot of fun yesterday. as usual.
aaaand we took our voice training to the next level (ooooh), so we sang the scales using a,e,i,o,u's.
"a a a a a a a"
no school tomorrow. HOORAY!
la bellaza de uno spontaneio!(i don't think i said it right)
September 27, 2005moo.
i know i made a post on cinderella man the other day but it had to be deleted due to my very stupid 'blonde moment.' oh, it was one of the worst. so i'll just say that it was a really good movie and i loved it. made me wanna watch boxing on tv and learn more about the great depression (i haven't done either yet).
I want these!
cherry garcia socks!
anyways, bed time now. i am needing more sleep! i hate feeling sleepy everyday. if there were 30 hours per day, i'd probably get 10 hours of sleep every night. but then again, if it was 30hr/day, the MOE would probably extend school hours to 9 hours or something. oh well. goodnight.
September 20, 2005can't think of one
hey! what is up cyber worldlings.
yesterday's basketball game went really well! except we lost by ONE POINT! (grrr) but it was pretty imressive how we managed to do some of our plays despite it being our first game. so, yay! go us! we just need to work really hard on our defense. we were honestly quite pathetic with our boxing out and rebounding. we gots to have more of the BUTT POWER!
college fair today at SAS was interesting. it wasn't as exciting as i thought it would be and it didn't help me THAT much but no harm done : ) felt a little out of place esp since no one seemed to have heard of ICS. timothy and i went to the sessions on interior design, hotel management, and nickelodeon. have no idea why i went to the nickelodeon one. totally irrelevant to my life. i don't even have nickelodeon on my tv channel. but i guess i learned today that passion is reeeaaally important. every single one of the speakers said it (including the nickelodeon guy from scotland). it made me think. do i really have a PASSION for interior designing? not exactly. i just have lots of fun doing it. my passion is to be in God's ministry! except, obviously, they wouldn't have had a session for that.
anyways, got lots of homework to do so later gatorrrrrrrrrz.
the zit on my nose is bugging me! it is huge!
September 17, 2005tabasco with pizza
yaaaaay my mom just brought me home made pizza and i've just drenched the whole thing in tabasco. i LOVE tabasco!!!!
anyways. had a pretty harsh beginning of the day today. ruth's dad recorded our worship rehearsal and my gosh, we need looooads of improvement. i need to work a lot on my voice too. gosh i felt so crappy listening to myself sing. thanks to uncle raymond, i know some weird voice exercises i can do (even though it makes me feel like an idiot sometimes) :D
and thanks to uncle raymond, i get "weather forecasts" on saturday mornings!
i finally got the open girl's basketball game schedule so here it is.

September 08, 2005no one really wins
hey! just came home from basketball practice and i am stinking lots.
i don't think i played too well today cuz of a few reasons: 1.) i haven't been going to the gym at all (zero stamina. ugh.), 2.) as ironic as it might sound, it seems that everytime we learn new plays and strategies, we begin to sadgjkgasdhsadjhg (sorry couldn't think of an appropriate word. don't wanna say "suck." we don't suck!) - probably cuz we get kinda lost. oh well, i'm sure we will get the hang of the plays soon so i won' t worry. games will be starting NEXT WEEK! yay! come to our games!
in history class.
"no! i wanna do world war II! that's my favorite war!"
"hey, whats YOUR favorite war?"
i'm thinking, "favorite war???" gee whizz. that is pretty sadistic.
right maria? ; )
"'I have it all planned out- plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. When you call me, when you come and pray to me, I'll listen. When you come looking for me, you'll find me. Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I will make sure you won't be disappointed. I'll turn things around for you.' God's Decree"

September 05, 2005"chinatown... my CHINATOWN..."
the weekend was an incredibly crazy one. it was one of the funnest weekend i've had in a long time :D
so, updates about yesterday.
the sermon was hilarious. i almost died laughing watching people impersonate each other in church. if only i had brought my CAMERA!
oh yeah, timothy visited too! so after church, we went out for lunch at takashimaya with ruth, isaku, jeanne, rach, and tanessa (tan tan!). i finally got my new running shoes, and returned my overdue library books. i bought some sequins for my international night india poster from art friend, so i'm excited about working on that. its gonna look faaabulous. timothy got this really cute donut binder from art friend too.
on the mrt on the way to orchard, timothy and i made friends with some stranger, soo lim. she thought red eye was a freaking comedy! i couldn't believe it.
anyway, in the library, timothy read "the best of SISTERS IN CRIME." hahaha what in the world. so we just sat there pretending to cry because laurie committed suicide. poor mike. "i want laurie! i want laurie!"
we tried stalking this chinese guy around the library too. you know its freaky when you keep seeing the same person walk into the exact same aisle as you? didn't quite work out though cuz he ended up spending ages at the chinese comic section. it was worth a try :)
on the mrt back to church... (we had to go back cuz our church was hosting city celebration- all the relating churches coming to meet and stuff.)
timothy: "why do you build me up buttercup baby just to let me down, MESS ME AROUND! (turns to some lady while holding an imaginary mic) COME ON YOU KNOW THE SONG!! COME ON! LET'S SING IT TOGETHER!"
lady: *weak smile*
other then all that galavanting in town, 'twas a weekend full of setting up instruments, clearing instruments, and LOTS of singing- preparing for the many church meetings our church hosted.
