Face you fears, live your dreams.

So I auctioned off my old laptop in my previous post, and luckily, it fetched a pretty penny AND ended up in the hands of a good owner. Some whack status scammer overbid on it the first time around for about, I don't know, $5,000(!) but I eventually went on to sell it for a little less than 900; a little less than half its original value.
On another note, I'm still in shock at what just happened days ago at Virginia Tech. I mean, wow. I do my usual website check daily and CNN is usually one of the last things I checked, but this time I happened to check it first and BAM. My condolences go out to all those affected by what happened. As I've already seen on facebook and all the other social networking sites, everyone is in full support of VT right now and will be for as long as need be, and then some.
We did discuss what happened over here at UCSD, and vice-chancellor Fox even addressed the students and staff personally, so it is definitely not an isolated issue.
On another note, my university life is going great. I'm doing my best to become more active and volunteer and get my name out there so that I might, even slightly, have a better chance of getting into international house at ERC. Thanks Ivy for getting me involved in the first place. [=

The more I look back at where I came from, the more I want to work harder to get away from that; that was a very self-destructive part of my life that I am not shunning, but am doing everything in my power to learn from and not repeat. Everytime I feel like taking it a little bit easier, I get reminded of where I was, and where I want and am going to be in the future. Seriously, there is no turning back now.
Warren honors, UCSD Tritones, KP, Kabayanihan, Kamalayan, and i-House are just a handful of the multitude of things I have on my list of academic and social priorities that I have in my sights as I make my way towards my B.A. Seriously Marc, all you have to do is take one look BACK, and something inside me begins burning with a passion to achieve and surpass everything I have set for myself. I do not and WILL NOT ever adhere to a scenario like that again.
On another note, American Idol audtions are coming to San Diego this July. I will be there, because you never know unless you try, right? Anyone else going?
