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 on a roll
Wednesday. 5.26.10 2:10 am
TWO MORE WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!

Two more weeks of painful studying, stress over finals, stress over practice....and then...FREEDOM!!

Well, not exactly. I'll still have to get ready for nationals, get a job, and work a couple of camps, but OH WELL. No room to complain for me, because...

I'm officially moving to Redmond / Lake Sammamish!!


I'm about to live in the best house, during the best part of the year, with one of my best friends. My dad is also trying to get a used car for the family so I can take his Honda. It really doesn't get much better than this.

The only snag is that I need to have a conversation with the Lobster, the same conversation that I need to have with you folks as well...but that will come later. All in due time.

HAHA today I was in my Global Warming lecture catching up on some Zzz's, when I had a dream about jump rope that I started acting out in my chair! So I woke up kicking my legs and flailing my arms like a complete IDIOT in the front row of a 200-student lecture...the epitome of embarrassing.

Some of Muffy's Musings:
  • I've discovered that I'm really not as stupid as I thought, I just need to try harder and stop whining about my apparent shortcomings.
  • I need to re-adopt my policy of no complaining. I've been slacking on that
  • Ok...I have to confess a recent guilty pleasure of mine....Bad Romance by Lady Gaga...and not even that.....THE GLEE COVER AHHHHHHH WTF IS GOING ON . I'm as horrified as you are trust me, but there's something undeniably catchy about it...ugh ugh ugh. Don't hate me


Ok I'll end there, I'm thinking my roommate needs to sleep.

Muffy over and out!

Muffy lives the perfect life
Monday. 5.17.10 2:11 am
So...big happenings.

The first is rather disappointing, but incredibly gratifying. My coach and her husband are going to Africa to help a friend of mine run Tanzania's first ever jump rope tournament, and I was invited to come along. They were going to pay for everything, but I have to go staff a camp in Indiana at the same time :( I'm incredibly honored to have been invited, but super super super sad that I can't make it .

The second big happening, is that I have been invited to stay at my coach's house for the summer and the entire school year. FOR FREE. HOLY SH**. It's the NICEST house I have ever been in (her husband is the Microsoft guy who wants to hire me!)...plus I would be ROOMIES with the lobster. So freaking sweet.

Speaking of lobster...I have to admit, I was less than fond of him when we first met. And up till he moved here, I was pretty much against the idea of having to jump with him, but I guess that just goes to show that people can still surprise you no matter how certain you are that you've got them figured out. I don't really do the "best friend" thing, but lobster comes pretty damn close.

The third big happening: MUSIC. Discovered a LOT more of it, and it's good stuff! New favorite song: Undisclosed Desires by Muse.

The fourth big happening: I'm finally starting to become confident in my studies. I just had to try, give it my all...that's all it took. I got a 96% on my introductory programming midterm :) The first time I took the course...I got a 64%. I'm about to ace this sucker

Saturday was basically the PERFECT. Spent the day just chilling with lobster, driving around in an Audi convertible, soaking up the sun (the weather was fucking brilliant), being treated to steak and crab cakes, and playing COD. Yup, just about perfect.

Ahhhh I haven't felt this good in a long time :)

Sunday. 5.9.10 2:56 am
I JUST WANNA TELL PEOPLE HOW MUCH THEY MEAN TO ME.

I want to tell...the truth.

And, I want a hug.

That's all I want right now...that's how ridiculously perfect my life is.

Sometimes I have to remind myself of that fact, and remind myself that I need to keep FIGHTING for this...because this shit's worth fighting for.

So, ladies, gents, and baboons, excuse me while I smile and have a fucking great time :)

Iron Muffy
Monday. 5.3.10 5:57 pm
Iron Man IIThat's right bichzzzz, I watched Iron Man 2 four days before its domestic release.

I wish I could rave about its awesomeness...but alas, no such thing. I mean, it wasn't a BAD movie, but there wasn't really anything that stood out either. Nothing I hadn't already seen from the trailers and clips and whatnot. The comic-book nerdiness seemed to have fizzled out. I felt like the whole film was trying to take itself too seriously, focusing on moral struggles and such instead of charging headlong into all the SPFX goodness like it was SUPPOSD TO. And plus, the general plot structure was almost a direct parallel to the original...laaaame. These movies are definitely not capitalizing on all the cool things in the Iron Man universe. The Iron Monger was POOP in the first film... I won't spoil the villain of the second film, but they definitely didn't do him justice. Where's the Mandarin?? Where's Fing Fang Foom?? *sigh*

Anyways, this weekend was another great one. Spent Friday till this morning in Kirkland, at my friend's house, and travelling abroad. Racked up a first place ribbon for my individual freestyle :) Played some Call of Duty. Took a ferry to Port Townsend and explored abandoned military bunkers in the middle of a forest. It was pretty tight / creepy. I only just got back to my room this morning....

My coach offered that I move into their house over the summer. My dad said he would give me his old car. WHAAAAT?? My coach's husband is the Microsoft man who wants to hire me. This feels too good to be true. Why am I afraid to go all-in for my future...? I need to stop being afraid of failure. Stupid. I just need to go for it.

Anyways, practice tonight. I hope it goes well...I'm tired of having to accommodate her inability to handle her own emotions. Why are girls crazy.

MUFFY ENJOYS THE WEEKEND :)
Monday. 4.26.10 12:29 am
So my sister posted a video on facebook where she is apparently singing a cover of Justin Bieber while playing the piano....

I'm pretty sure she's lip syncing to a voice that isn't hers, and pretending to play the piano while wooing the camera. I say that because if she could ACTUALLY sing like that, I would've heard it by now, and the way her arms move don't match the harmony. Plus, the video cuts to black at the end instead of ending on the last frame, and I'm thinking that means it was edited.

Either that was a legit performance and I will be shocked out of my mind, or she just pulled the biggest load of bull shit and I want to throw up in my mouth a little bit, especially when she's currently playing it off as being her own work.

I'd post the vid here except for not because I'm not about to go posting my lil sis online, no matter where it goes.

EDIT
Ahahah someone actually found the video she copied! Oh god. I feel bad for her because it's so sad that someone her age (senior in high school) would actually try and fake a talent like this. I mean, she must be desperate to so shamelessly steal someone else's work and pass it off as her own....so either she's still having problems with depression or she's just reached a new level of stupid. In all honesty, both are equally likely.

New favorite song: The Suffering by Coheed and Cambria.

Why Muffy's weekend was most excellent
  • Practice at 9am. Rhi is pissed off for the entire thing and as a result most of us want to just give up on the routine. Our coach sits us down and by the end of it we're all laughing like the friends we are . I've never met someone who could make me so mad yet make me smile so much at the same time
  • We get a random call from my coach to come to dinner at Outback (ok, this NEVER happens. Our coach is one of the most respected and feared people in the sport of jump rope...and we're going out to a casual dinner with her). It was actually pretty fun!
  • I learn that my coach's husband loves me and wants to hire me after I graudate. Do you know how much this man makes??? $1+ MILLION ANNUAL SALARY. And he wants to hire me??? OH MY GOD I'm sooooo down for that. Starting annual salary at Microsoft is around $70k...count me in.
  • The evening was bombtastic. We went to a guy's apartment in Kirkland and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Basically, I love my friends and making new ones
  • I woke up without a hangover! I did smash my knee and bite my cheek without knowing it...but oh well. Rhi didn't fair so well ahaha
  • Came back to my room and PWNT a programming assignment. Retaking CSE 142 makes me feel super smart
  • Went to a show in downtown to see one of my former teammtes...it was actually really good. I even bought a CD, and I NEVER legally obtain music
So now I'm back in my room, and prepared for another week of studies and living life. I feel like I'm ready to smile again

Ok that was a lot of text all about me, but that needs to happen sometimes!

Everyone go enjoy themselves! Muffy over and out!

PS. How would people feel if I changed my avatar...? It's been the same thing since I joined in 2004!

PSS. 25 LESBIANS WHO LOOK LIKE JUSTIN BEIBER AHAHAH

MUFFY HAZ DROWN MAYBE??
Saturday. 4.24.10 1:15 am
I struggle to stay afloat in this crazy life. Sometimes I sink, sometimes I float, and sometimes I rise above it all....I'm always going up or down randomly, like the waves. I'm tired of strugggglingggg I just want to find some footing, maybe DRY LAND, some sort of cohesion so I can figure myself out. Faaaaaack....

I'm so glad it's the weekend. This week was killer....3 midterms, 2 homeworks, and one unhappy Muffy. I hate sitting in my chair forever and ever. I just feel like a big fat sloth. On the bright side, I'm actually excited about BEING excited to learn computer science. I just have to convince myself I'm not actually as stupid as I feel...it's a hard argument to make . Whaaaaatever, practice tomorrow with my favorite peeps and then festivities in the evening!

Man I have some vivid dreams when I nap.

Today was a particularly sexy day for movie trailers..."The Last Airbender" trailer is gorgeous, and Iron Man reveals the awesomeness of his suitcase armor.

Curses, my free play limit on Pandora just expired...it's weird how FB is now integrating with everything on the planet, so I can see which of my friends have "thumbs-upped" particular songs on Pandora.

OK. Early morning tomorrow. 8 o'clock bus. I need to sleep, it's been a long day.

Muffy Kicks Ass
Wednesday. 4.21.10 1:12 am
Kick AssIt kicked ass. There's something to be said for a movie that can actually make me sad for its characters, and this was one of them. I'm the annoying type of moviegoer who pays attention to the little details and the accuracy of plot details / mechanics etc....so it's often hard for me to get involved with a film, but not hard here. I was genuinely entertained...PLUS the soundtrack was kicking just as much ass...I have the whole thing streaming on Grooveshark right now. Can't wait till the OST is released on the 26th!!

There's something about music that just drives me...I don't know what it is. It can gauge my mood and even change it. It can make me SMILE. A great movie with great music is just too perfect. A movie isn't the same without the music, and music isn't the same if it doesn't have context or emotions supplementing it (e.g. a film or memories).

In other news...

I felt randomly inspired to learn "Home" by Michael Buble on the piano. It's a really sad song, but brings back great memories :) Speaking of piano, and interesting but somewhat creepy video about a talking piano.

POOEY those American Heart Association peeps never even emailed me back after I sent in my application...thanks guys, I'm really feeling the love and looking forward to volunteering for your organization . I guess this means I keep looking!

WATERMELON AND CANTALOUPE IN THE SALAD BAR NOW???? omgz this is hax for sure. Too good to be true. I'm going to miss it when I move out :( I guess all the healthy food makes up for the fact that I've had a pint of ice cream for the last two nights ahahh.....I've decided to splurge a little now that regionals is over. That and give my body a rest. I remember saying a while back how I loved to be sore...well it's getting old because I'm sore ALL THE TIME. Haha I guess that's a good thing though.

Nutang video challenge??? I like this idea. Perhaps a JUMP ROPE CHALLENGE?? Who can do the best trick?? lol. I can always dream. Someone posted this comment on Saltare's facebook page and it made me smile from ear to ear :)

"Ok, sooo no offense, but here's what I said when I watched the first episode of ABDC.
I was like, "Omg jump ropes, are you serious. That's stupid." You would never believe how much my mouth was hanging open after your guy's first performance. I have never put my foot so far in my mouth before. After my ignorance, I was rooting for you guys from then on. Then casually, my friend & I went out and bought jump ropes. You guys are rediculously amazing. After you guys left the show, honestly, it was hard to watch because I'm like, "but Saltare isn't going to perform." :( I loved your guy's confidence for being different. What a job well done, and thanks for putting me in my place. Seriously!! Lol :)"

I don't know if you guys know how happy it makes me to hear that someone in the world has gone out to buy a jump rope because they've watched one of us perform (thanks zanzi).

Sometimes I worry that my sarcasm tricks people into thinking that I don't care. It's funny, the people who I laugh at, ridicule, and make fun of are the people who I like and care about most. I wish there was a way to let people know I care! ... because when I open up and get all sappy, it's just weird....but gratifying :)

Muffy over and out!
