Nothing great.

So I've been sitting here for the past five minutes trying to come up with something deep to say or a meaningful topic to share my opinion on, but I'm just too tired for that level of thinking, so instead I'll write about my day. Fun eh?

So this morning I get woken up at 5 by my roommate asking me if he can borrow my car, but unfortunately for him I had work at 7 and had to be up in an hour. I couldn't get back to sleep after that even though I had an hour left to do so, so I ended up getting up and going to work early. My car was completely fucked over by ice. The doors were frozen shut and the inside and outside of my windshield was completely frozen, so I had to take a hot sponge to thaw it. On the way I decided to stop by Starbucks. There's a girl who I see almost every time I have opening shift and she ended up giving me a free coffee which was nice.

I punched in 7 minutes early because one of the slower workers had closed the night before and did a terrible job and there was a lot of catching up to do. So from 7-11 I proceeded to bust ass and get all of the morning and afternoon duties done so that by the time I went to lunch the 11-8 shift had pretty much nothing at all to do. When I came back I decided to back up check since everything was still perfect and ended up helping our grocery department build a few displays. I work at the Food4Less is cameron park for those that are curious.

Anyway, I got off at 4 and went straight to my girlfriend's house to have her birthday dinner with her and her parents. I'm happy to say that it's not longer awkward whenever I'm over there. It's always a pain in the ass to meet the parents because you have to try your hardest to make a good impression, and it was hard for me the first few times because a lot of my humor and personality is derived from sarcasm, but I didn't want to come across as an asshole so I kept my mouth shut for the most part and acted like a fine modern day gentleman. Then I learned that they were assholes too so it instantly became easier for us to get along haha. It was nice just being able to spend time relaxing with her. I work full time and go to school and she works part time and goes to school so we rarely ever have days to just hang out yanno? And when we do its usually just her spending the night over at my place. We're only able to see each other two or three times per week, but I think that works out just fine. In our case absence truly makes the heart grow fonder, because I know that I cherish the little amount of time we do get together.

So yeah, her mom made a delicious dinner which is a nice change of pace from my typical diet which mostly involves microwaved food, salads and chicken breast. She even gave me the left overs which I'm probably going to eat as soon as I get home. After dinner I laid on her bed with her just talking while she was doing her homework and when I started to fall asleep she leans over and whispers "I love you" in my ear. I pretended not to hear it and just layed there acting as though I were asleep. I wanted to say so many things to her, but instead I chose to stay silent for once and enjoy the moment. So after a while I got up and left which was the most arduous task of my day for two reasons:
1. I had to leave her
2. I had to drive home and freeze my ass off since my car doesn't have heat.

So now I'm at my friends house since our internet is down, laying on the couch typing this entry, wondering who, if anyone would've taken the time to read it all since it was pretty much nonsense. Maybe next time I'll write something a little more substantial, but I wouldn't count on it.


  1. Can't comment too much on this one......
    reason #1.I've never had a work(except the work study job at the computer lab) before. In China, concept is different. "Mind your own study business!" is the most things parents will say to students. And even if the parents are wise enough to see the importance of work experience, there's not so much job openings to students.
    #2.Never had a girlfriend, and won't be suprised if I end up with not ever had one. Nothing to do with China, I'm just having trouble confirming the emotion of love to a female.
    But, one thing for sure. This isn't nonsense. To me, a blog is just a diary in a digital way rather than an analog one.

  2. I agree with Dawei that this wasn't nonsense. I thought it was gfunny when you were talking about meeting parents and your sense of humor being sarcastic. I come from several generations of sarcastic people, so when my parents and I used to get together wth my aunt and uncle and my grandparents, it would get really sarcastic and funny. Sometimes when I would have friends (or boyfriends) with me, they would be a little taken aback by all the sacrcasm - especially if they weren't sarcastic people themselves. Fortunately, I had one friend who could dish it out with the best of them, so he was usually the chosen guest to bring to family dinners. I love sarcasm!

  3. i like your sense of humor in this first post. And no, its not nonsense. I think your blog will be interesting to read in the future. Sarcasm really is a good quality, when used in the right context that is.

  4. hahaha i think everyone can relate about meeting the parents. it's so hard to be so perfect :) how long have you and your girlfriend been together? you work at food 4 less! that's hella badass. i work at safeway next to you! at least you guys don't have to bag groceries :(
