#AtoZChallenge – F for Forgotten Streak


As I lie awake in bed last night, I realized something. My blogging streak started last April and since then I haven’t stopped blogging. So I think this is the real anniversary of this blog, not February of 2013 since I blogged for less than a month before quitting. Okay, so I posted a few times between…

No Last Words


Daily Prompt: You have the chance to write one last post on your blog before you stop blogging forever. Write it. I am going to write it. There are probably only two reasons in this entire universe why I would ever stop blogging. 1. sudden death and 2. I got a job and am busy as…

Writing by Prompt


One of the things I love about blogging is to be able to free-write. I can write about whatever I want. But this is one of the things I don’t like about blogging because if you get so used to free-write, if it comes down writing based on a prompt, there might be trouble.

Paid off Finally!


Last October, when I dropped below half-time (<6 credits) in school, the loan company immediately needed me to repay my student loan. How dumb is that? At least let me finish school, earn a decent wage before making me repay the loans.

How long does it take…to learn English


When I was teaching English to newcomer students at LCA, a private school I work at for the past two years, I often get this exact question from either my students or some concerned parents who like to waltz in and out of the school as they please. How long did it take you to speak…

I wanted to post yesterday but…


Exhaustion and laziness took over. Ever since my test on Tuesday, I didn’t want to do anything. Even now, I still don’t want to do anything but I can’t do that, can I? On Friday morning, after waiting ’til the last day, I finally got an agenda for Saturday’s club meeting. Then that night, after…

Goals for the remainder of this Summer


Wait, it’s the “remainder of this Summer” already??? 😮 Yes! Yes, it is and before you know it, Fall rolls around and then the Winter. Time flies! I guess that’s the one down side of being so optimistic. Anyway, I’m going to savor what’s left of this summer by getting the most I can out of it.…

The one thing that went right…


Happy Monday, how were your weekends?  Sorry it took me so long to post something. I guess I’m just overwhelmed with laziness and frustration. Last weekend started so well with July 4th and all. On Saturday, mom even took me to Costco and I finally purchased a new computer! Then on the way home, at Home…

Double the Holidays, Festivities, and Fireworks!


In the U.S. or probably the world, most people knows that only one holiday exist in July for the U.S., the 4th of July or Independence Day. What most people also didn’t know is that in Utah, there is also Pioneer Day, which is July 24th. It commemorates the settlement of the first Mormon pioneer.…

Want to hear something hilarious?


Hi, everyone, since my day is going nowhere right now, I thought I share something hilarious I heard on the way to my doctor appointment yesterday. I laughed so hard when the radio announcer said this on the radio.

The Near Impossible Task of Multitasking


In the past two months (mostly), blogging has been a sort of an escapade for me, temporarily escaping work and study to go to another world, the world of blogging, that is. 😀 However, with two weeks away from my GMAT, I realize I need to buckle down and study.

Sometimes, I wish the internet and I are strangers


I don’t ever remember a case where I needed the internet as bad as I had this past weekend. Sorry, that sentence came out sort of weird. I guess I’m just a bit off my rhythm from not blogging or writing for two days straight. It might also be the fact that I’ve been staring…

A drama-filled past week


I wonder, for once, can I just have a nice, peaceful, enjoyable weekend? I mean, is it just thinking about it wrong? This past week This past weekend had just been awful and full of drama. First, my neighbor did a good thing for us and it backfired on me. Then the internet modem broke. What’s…
