The joys of a skinny little asian dude..... [Mar. 17th, 2007|04:21 pm]

[mood |annoyedannoyed]

Well, it has been quite sometime since I wrote anything on this page, and since I have nothing else to do ... here I am.

I hate being skinny. I hate being small. I hate being Asian. Well..... being Chinese does have some perks, albeit limited. Especially when you're single.

Anyway, I went shopping today. And, boy does it suck to be living in a society where pretty much everyone is twice the size you are. I hate it, I hate the fact that I can't find an extra small anywhere. I hate that I AM and extra small. There are great styles out there, but I can't wear them because I'm too small. "Maybe I'll grow into it". I don't think that phrase works when you're 24. I bought this dress shirt (expensive, but i liked it) which looked good when I tried it on in the store, but as I try it again at home, I start noticing the flaws. It was supposed to be fitted, but it wasn't. The design became disproportioned compared to my body size. It just looked like I was trying to fit into something a size too big. I should return it. But i don't want to, I like the shirt, I really do. I just can't fill it out! It's really annoying to know that there are great shirts out there, but you can't wear them because you are so damn skinny! It just makes me wanna punch something. NOTHING FITS......

Maybe I've been looking at too many magazine filled with genetic freaks. Maybe I'm just jealous.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! and HAPPY NEW YEAR! I'm probably not gonna post until the next year. Unless I get a computer next week or so..... since work will get really boring.

What? You saw the word working?

YUP! I'm actually working right now. Nothing glamourous as engineering work.... but I'm having lots of fun. I'm working downtown at Harvest Energy Corp as..... a Mail room clerk assistant. Yup. I love it. The people I work for are hilarious! I think that is what makes it fun. Plus i don't have to go to the gym at all...... this company owns 8 floors so I'm using the stairs a lot. I'm also lifting boxes and moving furniture. I'm really "maning" it up. ha ha ha...... Too bad this temp job is over this friday. *cries* BUT! I have managed to get the company to extend my stay, however, instead of working in the mail room, I'm gonna work as a well files clerk assistant........ closer to engineering.... but not quite there. It's gonna be so boring! Filing files....... I hope I don't fall asleep. Working mail room, at least, keeps me busy and the day flies by so quickly. It's gonna be long days working with well files..... *cries* At least I'll still be with the same company. Everyone is so nice! It's gonna be hard leaving. ....... Well, for now, I should be happy. I'll leave the tears near the end of my term.

Gotta remember..... MAN UP!

5 months and counting! [Oct. 17th, 2006|10:26 pm]

Well! It's been 5 long months since I updated, so I think it's about time to do so.

Nothing too exciting happened during the summer.... well, I did go white water rafting. ... That was fun. Next summer we are going to do the waterfall!

Just today, some dude asked me out on a date. I was flattered, but not interested. I told him I wasn't looking.

What I am looking for right now, is a good job. Still nothing yet. I did apply to 2 jobs today. Well, technically one. The other I have to hand in tomorrow. Still don't understand why no one wants me. Too crazy i guess. or I probably have a huge mistake on my cover letter, and i can't seem to see it. I dont' know. Whatever.

Other than that, nothing to out of the ordinary.

Well, now, off to MAPLE STORY! ha ha ha....... oh, i'm such a dork.

why does the world work like this? [Jun. 6th, 2006|01:01 am]

[mood |depresseddepressed]

I'm proably not going to make much sense in this entry, but it's my thoughts, and thoughts are random. So, please bare with me.

What does the world have against me?? I don't really understand. Do the higher powers want to make my life as miserable as it can be? I don't understand.

Today, it was my convocation. A normally a happy occasion. My whole family was able to come. Except for my brother; he had school. So my aunt took his place. My mom had taken a day off, just to see me graduate. I was so happy that she was able to come. However, as fate would have it, she would get sick and throw up just after the ceremony began. Therefore, she was not able to sit and enjoy the celebration. So, she would be running to the bathroom several times during the ceremony, being in pain, missing her son's graduation. I feel so bad for her. Is it because I did something wrong that karma had to come back with such force that it had to ruin the day my mom would be so proud of me? What did I do?? Why is it the only time that she is able to see me graduate, she had to go through such pain. Why me? Now it may sound like that I'm blaming my mother, but I'm not. I'm blaming me. I blame the choices I apparently made that caused my family to go through this. One of the worst things that can happen to a person is not direct pain on ones self, but to those around them. I think this has been found true today.

The proverbial phrase: "to gain something, one must lose something" seems to show up in my life many times. My mom was able to come to the ceremony, but she was not able to enjoy the day. I graduate, but I have no job. I have great friends, but can never find the one I love.

I guess in reality, I may just as well be skewing the view to my favor of blaming the "higher powers". I should be happy for the things I have and be glad that my mom was there. But you know what? I am depressed. I can do what ever.

I have run out of complaints.

Day Dreaming [May. 28th, 2006|04:35 pm]

[music |angels and airwaves - the adventure]

As I sit chatting away with my friends, we start talking about trips to places and how we should go somewhere before we start working (Or in my case, before I even find a job. Ha ha ha.), I start to think about my dreams of travelling around the world.

I started to think, I'm getting fed up with the futile attempts at finding a start for my career, I should just go and travel. Ah, but with what money? I don't really know. I have just 2k in my bank. But that's enough for a week trip to hawaii. Well, sort of. Enough for the hotel and flight tickets anyway. Then it got me thinking about my dream to be working and travelling at the same time. I knew a guy when I was in Japan a couple years ago. My friend and I both working at vegetable farm around sapporo (part of my japan trip experience, plus it was free room and food, always a plus) and this guy was working there too. Anyway, I found out that he has been all around asia, and europe too, working at different places for a few months and then moving on. He's been to so many places. It makes me jealous. I really want to do that. Just pick a place to start and work my way around the world. So, now, I have this plan. I find a job now. Work until I get my P.Eng. By then I would have a nice boyfriend or husband. We would just go and travell around the world and work at different cities. Do that until we get bored or too homesick. Come back and continue my "career" as an engineer. And live the rest of my life, content with having done something exciting.

Sounds excited eh? But I don't know if that will ever happen. It doesn't hurt to dream right??

WHY CAN'T I FIND A FUCKING JOB??? [May. 15th, 2006|11:38 pm]

[mood |annoyedannoyed]

It's been 2 weeks after the last day of exams and I'm starting to get restless. I need a job. NOW!!!!! Seriously, everyone in my graduating chemical engineering class has a job, or is going back to do their masters. I can't do a masters cuz my marks are too fucking low. 3.00 they say. Well, they can take my 2.71 and shove it up their big fat ass.

Ok, I am a picky man. I want to do drafting and a chemical engineer is probably not what a drafting company really wants, but hey, I have to start somewhere. How many companies have you applied since the start of four year?? Well, lets see:

Clearstone, CNRL, DPH, Emerson, Enerplus, GRB, Hemisphere, Schlumberger, Smith, SNClavalin, Tri-Ocean, Concise, Projex, Segment, SolTech, WorleyParsons MEG, Nexen, PetroCanada, FM Global. These are on this computer. I dont' remember how many I have on the school one.

Ok, I admit, it's not a large amount, but still. COME ON!!!!!!!

I guess I have to suck it up and work at a oil rig for the first 3-4 years of my life. Then I'll probably have enough "experience" to make it into an office job.

Fuck that. I'm going into interpretive dance.

Happy New Year! [Jan. 1st, 2006|04:11 pm]

Whoa!

It's been like a billion years since I stopped writing in this. I guess I am too bored to do anything else, so I'm here! :)

Things have been boring, internship was boring, school was freaking hard and now winter break is almost over! Time flies by so fast!

What have I been up to??? Lets see.... nothing much really, school and volunteering with NUTV. So much fun. I should get more involved though. Get myself out there more. I wonder if I can do the news this semester. ha ha ha ha. Anyway, I watched BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN at the Globe. It was the best movie I've seen this year! It haunted me (in a good way) for like days. It still does. I can't stop thinking about it. I see pictures of it, and read articles on it. It's pretty crazy. I'll buy the novella and DVD and stuff. Jake G. and Heath L. are hot. ha ha ha

hmmm, what else, I've started playing Maple Story. Repetive gaming, that's where it's at guys. ha ha ha ha...... It's like an addiction. I know it's stupid, but I can't stop playing!

What else, I haven't found a boyfriend yet. But I have time.

Done lots of Kareoke at Superstar. LOTS of Kareoke. ha ha ha, hung out with friends most of the holiday.

I AM SO MAD that I couldn't find anything good from boxing day, boxing week really, shopping. NOTHING!

Well, I have stupid block week courses that I have to go to. So, I may not remember to update. Well, it was nice to come back and write stuff.

Bye for now!
