It's hot and I'm too pissed too exhausted too sweaty to write anything else.

F the weather F the heat and F my life

I'm back again to complain about the weather. I absolutely hate it. Today was exactly 95 degrees so you can just imagine me sitting in a one bedroom apartment for 5 hours with nothing to do but read and sleep. Okay I'm lying. But doesn't it sound more dramatic that way? The truth is that I live in a five bedroom house with air conditioning but still the weather was brutally hot regardless of the circumstances I was in.

I took a 4 hour nap today which made me feel completely exhausted afterward for some particular reason. I woke up feeling one hundred years old and unreasonably indignant. I rummaged through the fridge after my nap and ate 4 chocolate truffles which I immediately regretted eating afterward. So chocolate stained, hot, and pissed off, I threw a bitch fit and who took the blame? My little starry-eyed brother who just so happened to be the closest thing around me at the moment. There you go, me and dry hot weather just don't mix.

My head hurts now, great.

From the East toe the West and back again


Nothing much has happened since my last post but I'll update you anyways.

I've been reading On the Road and I'm almost done and I hate to say this but it's not really that great. I had the hardest time trying to concentrate on some of the chapters without, sad to say, slowly dozing off. I guess I just don't understand what's the main point of the story and I hate not being able to grasp the whole purpose of a book. The novel is suppose to be one of Jack Kerouac's more notable works but the whole book itself is about two mad men named Sal and Dean traveling across American from the East to the West and then back again. They travel without any thought or reason; just merely based on their impulse to go somewhere and start over new. So basically they travel mile after mile with one destination in mind: to get to New York without any knowledge as to how they're going to get there, just that they are.

On the surface Sal and Dean just look like a bunch of idiotic low-lives with no purpose in life but as you squint to see what lies beneath the surface, you realize that they are what signifies the "beat" generation. Which with the help of Wikipedia is the "rejection of mainstream American values, experimentation with drugs and alternate forms of sexuality, and an interest in Eastern spirituality." And although that may make the book seem like a pretty significant contributor to the development of American cultural history, I still stick to my initial thought that the book doesn't live up to all the hype.

On another note, I've gained 10 pounds and am about to jump off a cliff. Must exercise but as you all know that's physically impossible when you live in America, especially L.A., where there's a restaurant and fast food place outside of every gym. So I rest my case.

4th of July

It's a hundred and something degrees and I'm about to go crazy. It's a lazy Sunday and I can't even sit here without sweating. It's disgusting.

So let me tell you about 4th of July. It turned out to be a bit disappointing but overall it was better than staying at home watching my mom cry her eyes out watching overly dramatic soap operas about unrealistic characters being put in unrealistic situations.

Here's what I realized during 4th of July; all my once charming and innocent little chums have turned into psycho drug addicted maniacs whose sudden motto in life is to "Life fast, die young." For the guys it's been one drug or another and for the girls it's just been SEX. It's really disturbing to find out that your once high school lunch buddy is sleeping around with multiple guys just for fun and who you happened to see yesterday making out with someone who was obviously high. So I took a couple of jello shots and grabbed some of whatever was left of the food and exited with a couple of friends who were also terrified at the what was happening inside that one storied house jam-packed with drunk hormonal teenagers.

I ended up watching fireworks from a little cafe near home which turned out to be perfect since I'm a late night coffee addict who just so happens to have midnight cravings. So after my fourth cup of coffee I decided that it was time end my little escapade and go home.

Which reminds me I have a free coupon to IHOP yipppee! which means infinite refills! My ultimate scheme is to drain all the coffee out of that place.

Oh Hello Again!

So once again I've neglected my once daily entries. This is exactly what happens when you get lazy. So here's an update of what's been going on in my life.

Summer officially started. How do I know? Well here's the deal. One day the sun just decided to show just how scorching hot it really is by shining it's vicious rays down on L.A., frying everyone, especially me, into a nice crisp golden brown color like if I was some bread in the oven waiting to rise. And yes once it gets hot, I take naps. I guess that comes with the package of not having much to do over summer so for every moment that I'm not preoccupied, I am dozing off on my favorite comfy couch, which just so happens to be screaming "sleep on me! You know you want to" and taunting me with is oh-so-comfortable and inviting goodness. Trust me it's very persuasive.

Besides that Independence Day is coming up and I unfortunately have work. Bummer. But luckily Baskin Robbins is closing early that day which leaves me four hours to have fun and get drunk. Yepp

College starts in a couple of months, to be precise three months, and I'm not really looking forward to moving in and all that pish posh. I just want to suspend time and just have it be summer vacation all year long. I want to be able to relax, travel, and just do everything that I have in mind to do before school starts again. And hopefully I'll update you along the way. I hate having to be absent for long periods of time like I did do since my last entry was almost a month ago.

At the moment I'm reading this one book called On the Road by Jack Kerouac which I heard was suppose to be pretty good. So I guess that will keep me busy for a while.

That's it for now. Toodles!
