MUFFY LIVES
Tuesday. 7.27.10 8:19 pm
WELL HELLOOOO THERE. I feel like I need to get re-acquainted with the island all over again...my bad.

A lot has happened since nationals...therefore, I think it's time to bring out the good 'ol list of Muffy's Musings:
  • NORTHERN CAMP. Freaking great. I loved being the Level 4 leader and seeing the kids perform my routine in the show :) It was smaller, and less intense than usual...but there was also a special feel to it that I haven't really felt before. I also haven't laughed so hard for so many days in a very, very long time.
  • I've moved into my new room in Sammamish! It's pretty ridiculous. Last night I sat on the deck and made tattoo designs in the perfectly still air while the sun set. It was like...movie-scene epic. I also love that Lobster is my roommate...two years ago I definitely did NOT like him. Oh how the times change...
  • JRG CAMP (Jump rope-gymnastics camp). Also freaking sweet. I was a teacher for the jump rope half, and a student in the gymnastics part. I haven't been so sore in soooo long. That's a good thing! I loved having some jump ropers up here for a change :) Had a HILARIOUS time messing with this black dude in Call of Duty ahahaha...oh my gosh. I miss it.
  • MY BIRTHDAY! Since my birthday was during the camp, my parents came up and surprised me...with my dog Clarence ahaha. Then all the staffers went out to dinner to celebrate..jolly good time :)
  • ACCEPTANCE INTO THE INFORMATICS PROGRAM! holy crap I actually made it in. The letter came ON MY BIRTHDAY and my parents made me open it up in front of everyone! It could have been a DISASTEROUS situation, but my parents had read it through the light to make sure I was accepted haha. Oh my gosh, I haven't been that nervous since...I don't even know. Maybe nationals?


Ok that definitely wasn't supposed to take so long. Blah. So...in order to alleviate your poor, tired eyes, I shall post this video! It's our double dutch pairs freestyle from grand nationals! Enjoy folks...Muffy over and out.

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 RETURNS WITH GLORY
Thursday. 7.1.10 12:49 am
NUTANG. I DID IT. WE DID IT, MY TEAM DID IT. AFTER ALL OF THE BICKERING, FRUSTRATION, TIME, ENERGY, AND SHIT WE HAVE GONE THROUGH TO MAKE THIS ROUTINE WORK, OUR DOUBLE DUTCH PAIRS ROUTINE FINALLY CAME TOGETHER IN THAT SINGLE MOMENT ON THE STAGE.

I still can't really believe that it actually happened....

... we actually won the grand national trophy.

When they called our names we all kinda threw ourselves together in this ridiculous hug, and I started crying. I really couldn't stop it...I mean I pride myself on having emotional control, but this was such a freaking ridiculous moment that I couldn't help it.

Just... wow. We tried so hard, and it actually happened.

In a nutshell, Nationals 2010 was one of the most emotionally charged experiences of my life. People were anxious, frustrated, excited, nervous, happy, and everything inbetween. It just seemed like everyone cared again, and in a weird, emo sort of way, it was nice to do more than fight my feelings...I got to actually FEEL them.

I finally got 186 in 30-second speed! That was my goal...that's like 6 jumps per second. I'm happy :)
ALSO, I finally got the hugs I wanted :) ... lots and lots of them.

I miss it all, a lot.

I'll always remember how you'd say "Hi Briiiiaan" everytime I walked through the door, how you let me eat ALL of your food, and how you always made me laugh with your really awful jokes. But most of all, I'll remember what you taught me.

Rest in peace, Michael.

This will be a very disjointed entry, because my brain is all over the place.

First of all, people who post whiny status updates on Facebook can shut the fuck up, a.k.a. welcome to my blocked feed list. Stop fishing for sympathy.

Second of all, grades went very well. I got a 94% and a 90% in CSE 142 an CSE 373, respectively (CSE = computer science and engineering). Happy about that.

Third of all, life has gained somewhat of a new perspective for me lately. I've decided that I don't need a reason to tell people that I care anymore. I don't care if I seem overly sentimental, I don't care if it's weird, and I don't care if I get shot down. You can't be afraid of stupid crap like that, because the people you're thinking about are worth so much more than social rules and playing it cool.

Finally. I feel like a big mess right now. Just a lot of different feelings, about life and certain people in it. I've lost solid ground again...although, given what I've seen this past couple of days, I have no room to be complaining.

Muffy muses
Friday. 6.4.10 3:36 am
Welllll then.

I'm feeling pretty relaxed about life at the moment. I guess I was expecting more of an abrupt change, even hoping for one, but...maybe I just don't quite know how to feel yet. Time will tell.

Gotta keep having that conversation.

I just got done being really frustrated / disappointed in myself over a computer science assignment. The solution: good food, good music, and good friends. And telling myself that I'm not as stupid as I feel, I just didn't try hard enough...but that's less inspirational so we can leave that part out.

Ya know, now that I think about it, today was actually a really good day. Lots of food and friends...I can't even complain about all the work.

Muffy's musings:
  • The Simpsons do a KE$HA INTRO???
  • I don't even understand how people manage to pee on the floor. Every bathroom I go to, ope there's pee under the urinal.
  • I'm actually having to shave every 3 days now, as opposed to 5...it must be cuz I'm almost TWENTY??
  • Girls use their bodies to act out "Harder Better Faster Stronger"
  • I made a nifty logo for a site
  • Met a girl who's name is CATALYST. How freaking cool is that???
  • Yawns really are contagious. I yawn when someone around me does, and when I think about it, like right now
  • This summer, I plan on taking up some art projects. I miss being creative
  • grooveshark.com/ - It's like Pandora on steroids. You can do playlists, libraries, radio, and widgets. It's beautiful
Well, that was a pretty good size list. Not sure what else is going on. I feel like there's A LOT. But I can't really put it into words right now, and I don't wanna get to being too deep-thinking yet. Gotta save my brain for finals. ALTHOUGH, on a somewhat exciting note...I'M GOING TO READ A BOOK! Because I want to! I bought my first non-academic book IN AGES...."The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. That is another one of my summer projects. For once...excited for the future :)

P.S. MUSE IS SO SICK. Why did I not discover this before? The 3 Exogenesis Symphony pieces are increeeedddibbleee....I usually only like certain singles, but their stuff is just GOOD.
