It's been awhile

I've been missing in action lately. Internet has been down for a long time. I hope it is up for good, now. :) Oh, and update--Summer school is ending next Thursday! :D I will be doing NOTHING.

I honestly think I can be a man. I can't identify much of the colors on the left. The only color that I even differentiate into shades is green and they're not really descriptive: green, forest green, puke green.

I heard the cutest story today

My friend and I were eating a late lunch and talking about our past crushes. She told me her story about a guy she had a crush on at that time. Here goes:

There's this guy that she saw frequently walking around campus that she thought was pretty cute, but never got the chance to talk to. One semester, she had to move down to San Diego to help out with her sister's family, so she took the semester off. While she was working at her retail job, she saw him in line. She recognized him immediately. Freaking out, she hoped that she wouldn't have to help him check out because she recognized him as her kinda crush. As fate would have it, she had to serve him. She greeted him and his mother and chatted with them while desensitizing their items. Standing in front of her with his mother, he said, "You look familiar." She said, "Oh, it must be because I'm Samoan. Everyone thinks I look familiar!" He goes, "NO! I recognize you!" She continues changing the subject until he said, "(name goes here)!" She goes, "Oh, you're reading my name tag!" Then he does, "NO! I've seen you somewhere! You go to (the school I go to)!" She says, "Yeah, I do go there." Anyway, the conversation goes nowhere because he starts asking where he's seen her. Finally, he remembers he saw her at an inter-club meeting, which had representatives of each club participating. He asked a lot of questions, like what she was doing in San Diego and what classes she was taking that semester. Finally, he asks, "When do you have a break?" Want to go eat and catch up with me?" She goes, "Sorry, I just had a break right now." He goes, "Um, how about after that? Do you have another break? When do you get off? Maybe tomorrow?" Basically at this time, people were looking at them, his mom (looking surprised) and my friend's brother (who was working right next to friend) were looking at her expectantly. Finally, she said that's she was free tomorrow after break. By the time she accepted, her cheeks were on fire! Anyway, they went out to eat and catch up the next day. Nothing happened. To this day, they are still friends. The end.

Okay, so not the most epic story. But when I heard it, I thought it it was the cutest story because it's sounded like fate was pulling the strings. Despite not going to school and seeing him again, fate somehow brought them together in a retail store. Though, the bad part is that they did not get together. But then again, she is young--she doesn't need to be tied down. :)

I hope you have the best of luck. I know I'm not exactly the most encouraging since my finals have been over for quite awhile, but yeah. :)

A Day in... the Flea Market

Today Veronica and I went to the PCC Flea Market. Flea markets are the best places to spend money. For those that never been there, there are a lot of vendors there. In the outdoor parking lots, there were vendors. Inside the parking structure, there are even more vendors. It's actually pretty overwhelming, trying to absorb everything. I typically search for postcards and cigar boxes whenever I'm at the flea market. This time, however, I looked at the DVDs. There were a lot of DVDs that I wanted to buy. I ended up buying Little Miss Sunshine and Forrest Gump (sorry for not mentioning this to you, Veronica--I kind of wanted my cigar box to get more attention.). In addition to the DVDs, I got a cigar box for $2 at this vendor who I once bought a skirt and dress for $2 each. :) Obviously she didn't recognize me, but I did recall purchasing those items from almost a year ago. I tried my best to document everything. However, I felt like faux-hipster when I took photos. These were some of the photos I took.
The first thing that I did was look at the outdoor vendors since I expected to feel the heat as the day went on. One of the first vendors I saw was this sunglasses stand. Look at these sunglasses. Each one of them are unique. It makes me wish I have a lot sunglasses.
This vendor sells much of their items on this table for $1. I don't usually see things I like. I bought a t-shirt from them once. There are mostly scarves and men's shirts or pants in the table. I'm sure there are other treasures at this table. I'm just too impatient to look through everything..
I enjoy reading old postcards. I feel sentimental reading postcards--seeing what people write in their postcards. I seriously can't seem to grasp the idea that these are real people who wrote in them. Also, there's all this history behind their words...
I liked the little quote in this postcard, "Whenever you need a guard, just call on me." I find it so absurd how sayings can live forever. It makes me feel slightly melancholic because I won't be able to live forever and see all this happening.
I didn't get the chance to look at clothes in the flea market this time around. I spent quite a bit of money the last time I was there. I did see loads of nice clothes but I was afraid of spending a lot of money again. :(
There were a lot of vendors that had signs prohibiting photography. I didn't know if this vendor was the same, so I snapped a quick shot of this vendor. It's a blurry photo, but I feel that this kind of shows how most how some vendors prepare their areas.
