One Dollar Bill

Everynow and then my aunt sends me some very interesting email forwardsone dollar bill. Here’s one of them about the one dollar bill. It’s a very good read. It requires you to examine a dollar bill, if you don’t have one, here’s an e-version of a dolla…

What inspires you?

What fuels you in the morning to get up and start your day?

What do you have in mind when you greet the sunrise and say, “today is yet another day, just like yesterday.”?

Do you treat time as just another 24-stick tally system?

WHAT drives you to do the things you do in your agenda other than to cross them off the list?

Do you have a passion?

Are you acting upon the fire burning within you?

…or simply yet, do you need a spark within?


The next best thing since iTunes, Pandora.

They basically make your own radio station playing songs that are similar to the initial song you picked. It’s a great way of discovering unheard songs in the same type of genre you listen to.


“What’s your name…again?”

Today, my Comm class T.A. announced that for the next meeting, 5 extra credit points are up for grabs if we can name each and everyone’s first name in the class. Now extra credits are supposed to be easy work for a few points, but no no no… Not for me at least.

I’m terrible at remembering names.

To save myself from embarrassment, I’d do some sneaky and inane ways to know their names again without asking directly. One of my favorite techniques to “recall” their name is that when I enter their number entry to my phone, you would hear me say, “How do you spell your name again?”

Smooth, huh? Not only you get their names but their number as well…

Not that I don’t care, it’s just that I most the time I have a hard time matching names to faces.The ones that stands out to me the most are the “extremes” such as the ones who are drop dead gorgeous, people who instantaenously comment an inside ‘classic moment’, someone who I initially “click” with, or the horrifyingly mind-unerasable hideous folks. They just make a way too lasting impression for me to forget about.

In some way this is not a good thing because I might miss out on the average joes’ and janes’, whose types are typically reserved until you get to know each other a lot more. This is one of the issue I’m struggling to be better with because I usually lose the chance to get to know the other person on a deeper level because I don’t find a motivation to do so.

So next time I see you, don’t be mad if I don’t seem to remember your name. I guess I have some sort of a recessive selective memory. Save the stick, and just pretend to not remember my name too. That way we can introduce ourselves to each other again. And we won’t be nameless anymore. Then we can live happily ever after.

Welcome to Ohio!Ohio weather sucks.


Who wants to walk around cold, blue-ey, slushie-icky brown snow, nasty, gloomy and bleugh!

Or maybe I’m just complaining too much. Or not. But the weather really does blow. I can just see myself settling down somewhere in California after I graduate. Or not. Then again, that’s me setting a goal for myself which will eventually wind down to be not the best one for me.

Actually a lot of fellow students here may share the same plan as I do, as in having bright plans ahead in the future while meticulously trying to finish college. Livin’ like the best is yet to come. Extreme behaviors of such kind include the ones who rot their mind away in libraries studying till dusk, all in a namesake of not getting below an “A”. God forbid they get a B- in a pop quiz. I’m getting a notion that Fortune 500 companies never hire anyone with a GPA below 3.8.

Then there are some who seem to live like there would be no tomorrow. As in not caring a bit or none at all for classes. Same people look forward to the weekend’s binge drinking. College only come once, right? So why not have all the fun you can have? So come on! Livin’ la vida loca!

Seems to me that something is wrong in both mentalities. Most people are blindly preoccupied with a particular segment of their lifetime. Like thinking that college is the best time of their life, and those who itch away from their present situations and form visions of themselves living a perfect dream come true, somewhere, sometime, in the near future.

To those with these kind of attitudes, they are simply cheating themselves out of true happiness. Everytime is the best time of your life. It is in every moment where one can find opportunities and find valuable lessons life brings. The true joy of life is having a purpose to live for. What do you live for? A splendid career? A gazillion network of friends and social contacts? Recognition of some achievement? Having dreams is a good thing. In fact, I dream a lot, especially daydreaming. But dreams and success are not certain. Only One thing is.

Now Ohio weather isn’t really that bad anymore, heh…

…as long as I have my cup of marshmallow-loaded hot Swiss chocolate ::smile::.
