I’m 20, and I’ve just been hit with the realization that my body is not gonna get any better than this. I might as well hit the gym and get the good few years out of it while I can.


Today, I had dinner and dessert in Fremont with Xin. We went to the Dumpling House - not Din Tai Fung but still pretty good. We also stopped by Snowflake Tea House, and we had tapioca and milk tea served in the cutest jugs and green tea flavored snow. Yay for foodie adventures with friends!

I also got through a lot of reading on The Hobbit. I was so into it that I missed my transfer on the BART, and I had to spend an extra two hours to get home. Merp. For what it’s worth, I’d totally do it again because I hardly get time for leisure reading.

Also, while I was waiting for a train, this guy peed on a sign. He just dropped his fly and peed like there was no one around. That was a special time.


Ugh. Deleting my Tumblr was one of the biggest mistakes of my life.



do you ever have a plan for the day and suddenly it’s 4pm and you’ve achieved literally nothing 

Hahaha! Deeyum! Could have been though.

What if Frozen was an anime series?

What would its OP sequence look like? :D

also this

Among the things I value are Frozen and epic anime songs.

*edit* Also, watching this over, I just realized that Elsa keeps getting hurt by things of her own creation - like fear and chandeliers - but we are never in a position to call it weakness. Her fear was instilled in her by the trolls and her father, and her beautiful chandelier was brought down on her by the guards of Weselton (pronouced weaseltown).

ERICA GOLDSON: Graduation speech

Erica Goldson must have had some serious balls to give this speech

This is beautiful.

this is so wonderful 

This hit hard. Our education system is desperately in need of fixing.

This is the realization that led to my breakdown last quarter.

Defying Gravity by Idina Menzel.

This song strikes home for me. Looking back on my life up until now, I did not have much to choose for myself. I’ve always had someone there to tell me what to do, and I would make that my dream to follow. But ever since I entered UCLA, I felt like I was missing something important that everyone else had. And I finally discovered it.

Authenticity. I could never really flourish in something that I could not call my own, and up until now, I never really chased something that was my own. And I was always afraid to do so, either because I would lose love from those who are closest to me or I would second guess myself. I always listened to wisdom from those who have seen it and done it all, but when it comes down to it, they aren’t me. They can’t live through me, and I can’t accomplish a perfect life of my own if I’m just trying to stay within the lines that someone else draws for me. I have to mold my own life into what I want it to be, and I have to take risks with it.

So no more being that perfect son my parents want me to be. No more chasing dreams that aren’t mine. No more second guessing myself. At this point, I can only see myself being one thing - happy. :)
