Jabba Jabba Jabba! Again....
Tuesday. 4.8.08 9:38 am

I be the guy in the hood...the most pro of them all...

So, AP US History is taught in the auditorium, and I'm a tutor for the class. When we're not teaching, the rest of the tutors and I chill in the back room, aptly called "The Green Room." Well today I discovered an open door...to the props closet...and found masks! If anyone can recall how excited I was about the JabbawockeeZ in my blog a few entries back, you can imagine how fast I jumped on those masks. Then we danced and took a tutor picture, it was awesome, now I just need to find myself some gloves...

Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
3 days till it ends

I think I am officially recovered from my cold. There's still those residual symptoms like the stuffy nose and shortness of breath after intense exercise, but after spending 3 hours outside doing flips I think it's safe to say I'm back to my normal, healthy self. Good timing too, since practice starts up again in the next few days...why? Because Spring Break is ending in the next few days . Time is so effed up these days...it feels like break has been fast and slow and everything in between all at the same time.

I'm really hoping this movie doesn't flop. The trailer looks excellent, but Jet Li and Jackie Chan are old. I mean really, like 50s old. I guess it doesn't matter too much since they're both hooked up to wires, but the majesty Li and Chan's movies used to have won't be there anymore. Oh well, I'm a diehard SPFX fan, and they look pretty good in this movie...though I'm wondering why the heck they casted Michael Angarano as kid-prodigy? Pssh, white people can't do kung fu...except Neo





Shoutout to Tiffany for the info on how to get text to wrap around images/objects (above). Sweet stuff

Muffy over and out

Current obsession: JabbawockeeZ

My friend sent me a link to one of their videos, and I've been hooked ever since. America's Best Dance Crew is the only show I've ever regretted missing on TV. Oh, sorry, that's Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew. Whatever, Randy, get outta here. Not to be confused with the other Randy, that's why I call her Decepticon now.

Anyhow, *shifty glances* I may or may not have attempted a few Jabbawockee moves...to a certain degree of success. But as William Hung once said, "I have no formal training!" If anyone wants to get caught up in the craze, this MTV link has full videos of all the episodes.

I wish I could explain why my girlfriend is so amazing BUT, I don't think the citizens of Nutang would enjoy hearing the details. Bwahaha...you're right Bbr, Paul will be proud.

I've been so effing weird lately o_0 It's even starting to wierd me out Gotta get this problem fixed...soon. It's second on my todo list, after I finish taking over the world.

Muffy over and out!

Bleh bleh bleh I'm sick. I haven't gotten "sick" in a while. My nose seems to be perpetually stuffy, but this time I've got all the symptoms, annoying sore throat included. To sooth my burning tonsils I've been drinking a looot of water, and as a result, have gone to the bathroom a total of 14 times today.

>>Begin rant
Part of the reason why I haven't been around Nutang more often (how am I still in the same Most Active spot as when I left?) is because I've been trying real hard to be productive and fill out more scholarships. There are so many perfect ones out there...for Latinos. And African Americans. And Native Americans. And Indian Americans. But are there any for Muffy? No. Because Muffy is WHITE and ASIAN. I'm trying to fund my education like the rest of the college-bound community, and it's frustrating when I can't apply to half the shit out there because my skin is not "of the appropriate complexion."
>>End rant

I had more to say, but blogging is exhuasting, as is being up at 1:30 waiting for your sheets to get out of the dryer. Night folks, Muffy over and out

Life is picking up again...there never seems to be enough time in the day. And who would've thought that blogging could be so energy-consuming?

I saw Shutter yesterday. It was surprisingly good! I was covering my eyes through half of it though, because I HATE jumping, but fortunately the film didn't solely rely on the jump factor; there were some pretty legit goosebump moments as well. I'd see it again...but probably not in theaters, because there is no such thing as movie that is worth $9.25

I'm officially going to the UW! My parents are sending in the $250 enrolement fee and I'm going to be finish up applying for residency soon, too...so exciting! I got a response from Moira MacDonald of the Seattle Times, and she said that she never actually took Journalism o_0 Hmm...what should I explore in then? So many questions and so few people capable of answering them...

I've been acting strange lately. I can't even write like my usual self.

College: exciting and damn confusing
Tuesday. 3.18.08 11:14 am
Okay. I'm afraid to come out and say this because it means that I will have officially made up my mind despite the fact that I want to keep all options open. My head says "I don't know" but my heart says otherwise.

I think I'm going to the UW. My parents and I had a talk to get some things out in the open. They said that if I wanted to continue jump roping I would have to finance it myself, which I am more than willing to do. They also said that I wouldn't have to live at home! At that point I think I was already convinced...and it got even better when I discovered that working on staff for The Daily, the UW student newspaper, is a paid position. Everything is falling into place almost too well, I'm nervously waiting for the one hitch to throw my plans awry.

Since the paper isn't technically a "class," as far as I know, I'm debating whether or not to major in Communications. Something like psychology would be fun. I just don't want to devote my tuition to some stupid BA degree just for journalism, which doesn't even pay well. It's lame, everything I have an interest in has zero career outlook.

I just finished e-mailing a few staffers from the Seattle Times, so hopefully they can give me a bit more insight....

I might sound really apprehensive, but beneath the uncertainty I'm sooo excited

Wooo

I haven't thought about my jump rope career for some time now. There was a point last year where I realized that I probably wouldn't be continuing to jump through college, and I was really okay with it...until my coach sent me to Ohio on November 29th 2007. That boosted me to a whole new level of involvement with the sport and totally screwed me over because I began to realize how much I loved it and didn't want to give it up.

Until now, I've avoided contemplating the touchy subject, but my recent acceptance to the UW has sparked a small commotion that neither my parents or I can ignore. My coach was dancing when I told her I made it in...and then parents whom I have hardly spoken to are offering to drive me to practice? My dad was a little bit overwhelmed by the response, because he had his heart set on this being my last year. He slipped, though: "Brian, if you go to Worlds again I'm not paying for it." OH MY GOD. This is huge. He's envisioning a future that might possibly have jump rope? If I could jump during college....just the thought is exhilerating. I am not exaggerating when I say that jump roping at the UW would probably be the best four years of my life.

I have a Journalism conference tomorrow. From 9am to 4:30pm...and then tolo a few hours later. I will be one tired Muffy...tired, but very very happy

Oh
And just for the sake of sensationalism...I'm not sure if I mentioned earlier, but Jesse chipped his two front teeth trying a trick called the Death Wish, aptly named because you fly toward the ground with your hands behind your back. Anyhow, he was "peer-pressured" into trying it at trials, and, well...the video tells all.

The funny part is the cackling mothers. One of them even says:
"Did you see what they were trying to do? You do a handstand...then you lower." She says it with such earnesty, it's hilarious because she's dead wrong.

Gushy sentiments
Wednesday. 3.11.08 11:14 am
So I worked out for about an hour and a half yesterday, watching a movie. It wasn't a good pump-up movie like Rocky. It wasn't even the Matrix. Hell, it wasn't even remotely masculine. No...I watched 13 Going on 30.

There's something about that movie that just stikes a chord with me. No, I'm not a thirteen year-old girl who magically fast-forwards her life and discovers who she'll be in the future....it's the underlying stuff, like the little kid in all of us. I know there's a little kid in me. The whole idea of growing up has been incredibly relevant in my life lately, and it's really scary. Who am I going to be when I'm older? Hell I don't know...I just know that there aren't any do-overs, there isn't a way to go back and fix those stupid mistakes. FIX THEM NOW.

I don't know what it is with that movie...I just love it. And it has Vienna (Billy Joel) on the soundtrack and that makes it about fifty times better. If that scene wasn't in the movie I don't think I'd be sitting here blathering on like I'm doing now (bwahah I'm actually listening to it on my iPod as we speak...it's something of an inspiration).

I'm just feeling overly sentimental today. It sounds really nerdy, but I keep a do-now list in my documents, and at the end of every day I've started to put down something that's made me happy. Some of it's stupid, little things like "dinner was really good," but in the end it reminds you what you haveh to be thankful for. If you don't remember what makes you happy in life, what's the point of living?

P.S. Got accepted to the UW today I am on a fucking roll, people
