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.

Muffy engages nerds in battle
Monday. 9.13.10 3:01 pm
HERE'S THE DEAL: I think about shit too much. All the time. I need to stop. I need to develop an off switch for that portion of my brain.

I just spent 20 minutes typing and deleting all of these entry drafts until I realized that all I needed was a cathartic measure to get it out of me...and writing it down proved to be it.

SO. Now I'm back to feeling ok :)

Muffy's Musings:
  • INFORMATICS ORIENTATION. There are three kinds of people in this program. First, there are the nerds. These folks are really smart and like to let you know it...the problem is, sometimes they're so immersed in their nerd-worlds that some little details slip by them. Like social skills. Second, there are the self-aware nerds who are aware of their geekiness and use it to make hilarious quips and frequent references to memes. Third, there's this really chill black dude who loves basketball. LOVE IT.
  • DAVE MATTHEWS. Went to my first concert since LMFAO...at The Gorge. I'm not a DMB fan, but the Lobster is basically in love with them so we decided to do a last-minute road trip east over the mountains. Ok...I hate admitting when he's right, but it was pretty freaking ridiculous. They are amazing musicians, even if I don't exactly like they're style. But live, you can't help but love them.
  • TRON LEGACY. Looks sexy as fuuuuuu
  • WHAT ELSE?? Oh my god I know there's more. I just can't think of it right now.

Muffy records INSTA 2
Sunday. 8.29.10 6:06 pm
As many of you know, the Shoutbox is now clear of the latest INSTA event, and good 'ol Muffy has documented it here (now with clickable icons!): INSTA 2.

A basic framework of this INSTA:
Berfa, a potato head, uses her milkshake to bring all the boys to the yard, which results in a massive party and the initiation of a friendship with Ke$ha. However, the two encounter a violin-playing little man and some red ninjas who, through voodoo magic, turn off the sun and cause the sky to rain men. Al Gore writes a new book about the end of the world, and all three protagonists are assaulted with random advertisements and questions during a press conference with unwitting journalists. The INSTA abruptly ends at "a place downtown" (really in France), where the loop is broken.

In other news, I have also created a new thread called "WECOME TO THE ATL BITCHES." Just kidding, but it was inspired by the real ATL (sort of)...find it here.

I'm tempted to switch up templates again, because I feel like designing something...also it would give me a reason to brush up on some more CSS because I'm taking Web Technologies next quarter ahhhh! Any suggestions for new designs though? A source of inspiration? No I will not do a Jersey Shore template.

I'm rather excited to go to Bumbershoot on Sunday. My heart is sad that Muse isn't playing, but Weezer / LMFAO / Motion City Soundtrack should be able to alleviate some of that mourning. Lobster and I are going...and that presents somewhat of a problem. Because on the one hand I would enjoy to see some old friends, but I doubt he would really get much of a kick out of them. Very different people. Hmmm...predicament.

HOW TYPE CAN YOU FAST???. Challenge me. I dare you.

I just watched THE MATRIX last week and again today, and there is only one word to describe it: EPIC. The most honorable adjective known to mankind.

My dog, Clarence, is now known as the Bieber Feeder. He feeds on Biebs.

Muffy over and out!

---EDIT---
Forgot to say...the Chinese character in the tattoo is the formal character for "1." To me it means one of a kind, because no one else is really like me.

Muffy lacks wisdom...from the teeth
Thursday. 8.26.10 2:03 am


Behold my current swollen predicament. Wisdom teefs came out on Monday, and, much to my chagrin, I've been healing fabulously. Which means no sympathy treatment or lots of drugs...or tasty food. Ugh. My life is SO ROUGH, I know.

And yet, despite the fact that I've been stuck at home after having my jaw cracked open, I am feeling so good about life right now. Thus, begins Muffy's Musings:
  • MUSE. Fucking love them. I don't think I've ever been in love with a band before. This is it. I seriously considered flying down to Voodoo Festival in Baton Rouge to stay with one of my friends and see them, but alas, I have a workshop the same day .
  • EUROPE was an incredible experience. We did a double dutch battle in Belgium, and an impromptu double dutch circle under the Eifel Tower with the French team. It was one of the coolest things I have ever done, to have a crowd of random people around us just cheering for any of the tricks we tried. God it was incredible.
  • SCHOOL! I'm actually excited about it, now that I'm in my major :)
  • ME. I so comfortable with myself now, and it feels so liberating. And I'm finally starting to feel ok telling people about it. I mean, the road ahead is no doubt going to get rough, but I know this is right. It just feels right, and that makes me feel soooo good.
  • I finally have someone in "real life" to confide in.

For a long time, I felt like I was the crazy one for thinking all the things I do about the world. But now, I feel like I'm onto something. I feel like I have the answers, and I believe them with all my heart because I've lived them. I mean, I've had to go through a lot to get here, but I realize now that I wouldn't change anything.

And here is a picture of the tattoo that I'm going to get to symbolize EVERYTHING that has happened, and everything that I am now. I drew it myself...so even if you don't like, lie Because I love it and I'm going to get it anyway, so you might as well pretend to be supportive hehe.

SO. This is what the future will hold:
--WORK. Gotta start as soon as I get back to Redmond.
--MATERIAL GOODS. Because they are fun
--DRAWING. Because I miss being creative
--WRITING. Same thing
--MUSIC. Going to Bumbershoot
--TRAVEL. Road trip with the homies

Oh my GOSH I have just been full of all sorts of deep thoughts lately. I will post something whimiscal and stupid for your entertainment soon, I promise.

Muffy over and out!

100 Things about Muffy
Wednesday. 8.18.10 1:52 pm
SO. Looks like the 'ol challenge is back up...except this time, instead of 15 things, there are now 100! Thanks Dilated for always raising the bar. I got challenged a while ago, and I hope I don't get disqualified for being late...

3.) I LOVE playing the piano.
4.) I'm learning the play the guitar.
5.) I want to compose a movie theme song.

9.) But I rarely open up to people, or tell the whole story.
10.) I'm at a crossroads in my life.

18.) I just changed all the passwords to my online accounts, and I'm rather excited about getting to type something new.

27.) You can bash on me all you want, but do not bash on my friends. Bad idea.
28.) I have a medical condition called pectus excavatum. It causes the sternum to cave inwards. Sometimes I wish I could just be normal, but I've grown to accept it.
29.) This summer has been a whirlwind of memories...good, bad, and inbetween.
30.) There are certain blogs on this site who I automatically go to when I see their avatar in the "Recently Updated" section.
31.) I actually used to care about the Nutang top 10!
32.) A while ago I realized that I wouldn't trade my life for anybody else's, even with all the shit I've gone through and the rough road ahead. It makes no sense, but it's gotta mean something.
33.) I like to fake-sing in my super-baritone voice. It's fun.
34.) I wish I could actually sing though, that would be great.
35.) By most peoples' standards, I'm WEEEIIIRDDD.

44.) I also used to write a lot. I need to tap into thata again as well...for the same reason.

48.) Best way to piss me off: be negative.
49.) Best way to make ma happy: appreciate something about me :)

65.) I don't know that I've ever been in love, now that I think about it.
66.) I really thought I was FOR SURE at one point, but I think it was just because I had so much shit to think about, and nobody to tell it to.
67.) I realize that almost all of these facts start with "I" :)
68.) I kinda miss going to parties.
69.) The best adjective in the world: epic. One day, I hope it can describe something about me.
70.) In elementary school, they'd always say "now kids, just remember that it doesn't matter what other people think of you." Horrible advice.
71.) I tend to get caught up in the moment easily, and then look back and laugh at how sappy I was.
72.) I have crazy dreams. They usually play out like action movies.
73.) My favorites are when I have some sort of super power, which has included flying, flash-freezing, telekenesis, super strength, pyrokinesis, and control over plants.
74.) Clearly, I am a nerd at heart.
75.) When I dream about people, I can't tell if I prefer the dream world of the real world.
76.) I've only had one dream that made me cry....except when I was little, of course.

83.) I really wanna start watching Lost, but I don't want to devote so much time doing it. Blaaaah

85.) I wish my family was closer.
86.) I guess that's something I can work on, right?
87.) My biggest fear is that I will die alone.
88.) Wow that is super depressing...which reminds me that I don't like being a downer!
89.) When I scan over the word "downer" really fast...it kinda reads like "boner." Lol whoops
90.) I do not like poop. But I have the best poops in all the land.
91.) I used to get super constipated when I was younger...never again.
92.) Hahah oh my gosh I was so ridiculous when I was younger. I like laughing about it
93.) I don't toss around the word "love" very lightly. Sometimes I'll say it to people more as a sign of friendly affection, but I'll avoid it if I can.
94.) I don't make concessions when it comes to what I believe in. I rarely change for people.
95.) I DO use the word "bear" as a sign of affection, usually with pets but sometimes with people haha.
96.) Occasionally I will pronounce it "bee-are," but only when I'm with the Lobster.
97.) I tend to use Facebook too much.

Problem.

I feel like I'm at a disconnect with the people in my life. Like I always have to second guess what I say or do, because it's never really funny enough, or clever enough, or WHATEVER. I'm always worrying about whether or not I come off as a boring person, or whether or not I'm entertaining enough...or whatever. I don't like it.

I think part of it is because I'm sort of at a crossroads, and I haven't really gotten around to deciding the kind of person I want to be. You guys know what I'm talking about.

I feel like...I need someone to help me through this, but I can't really rely on anyone right now. I have the Lobster, but we don't really talk about stuff like this (maybe we should?) I have a friend who I know would always be there for me...but they're not exactly looking for just friendship from me, and I don't want to send any of the wrong messages. So..I dunno. It's a tough predicament.

On a lighter note, I finally finished reading "The Alchemist" :) It wasn't as striking as I expected it to be, but I think that's because most of its message wasn't a surprise to me. It was more of .... a good reminder about what I need to do with my life.

Here's a great quote from the book...

"He was sure that it made no difference to her on which day he appeared: for her, every day was the same, and when each day is the same as the next, it's because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day the sun rises."

Remember folks, when you want something, the universe is always conspiring in your favor, even if you don't understand how. You just have to get up and go.
