First of all....yay!!! I've got in to the Pharmaceutical Sciences PhD Program in UW-Madison!! (phew) It took a huuuuuuuugeeee load of my mind which means my shoulders too. Glad all my half-assed work did something for me. Now I have to go full-throttle into getting my freaking doctorate.

On Valentine's day, (fortunate or unfortunate-ly) I went to MSU in East Lansing to have my interview for the PhD program there. It was tiring and stressful as usual...well only because I take things seriously ^^ .....I thought I had gave the professors a good impression although I hope they do not suspect me getting drunk and spilling wine on the floor =p......oh well what's done is use crying over spilled wine right?

Waltzing through the interviews finally come Saturday night. My buddy Pat asked me if I had a date, and I replied umm I'm here...and he said so? I grinned and said We'll see. In the end, I hung out with a bunch of applicants and graduate students haha over dinner. While I did not exactly "celebrate" Valentine's Day, I had a nice if not slightly overcook steak plus 3 glasses of gourmet beer *teehee*...played pool w/ some really skillful girls (Heidi + Natasha) and lost (miserably).

While it was an awesome experience, I would have preferred celebrating the day as it is meant to be celebrated (w/ friends and family of course!! =p). So yesterday Todd and I got together for the first time and played pool and talked about girls. Ah~~ how ironic. We drew he won 2 and I won 2 lol.......these talks are priceless...

Then went back to have Neoguri + Jever + Slumdog Millionaire...Slumdog is such a good movie. While it was criticized to be portraying all the bad in Mumbai, I thought it was reasonable as most of the movies in this genre are pretty similar if not worse. In the midst of industrialization and prosperity from the outset was social problems and poverty. Whilst in the end, love, brotherhood, and friendship prevails, (typical typical), it was a nice roller-coaster ride to where Jamal won his 20 mil ruppies. The ending was very impactful, the way his brother Salim bathe himself in money and shot his boss before dying in gunshots. I love how Boyle intertwined the life story of Jamal with each question on the show, each baby step telling us his life experience and how those small, insignificant moments brought him to the pedestal the "million dollar" question. And of course, underlies all these brutality, stupidity, emotions, is a girl. The whole "mess" started because he wanted to find Latika!! Oh well she was hot and the last sentence of the movie "Kiss me" was so awesome in its own way. Finally, the bollywood dance made me chuckle a little. Haha...back to writing my paper...

Sometimes when we touch

I still can't believe this girl make me revisit my past...The deleted post. Never knew I would rewrite something I have deleted. Anyways so here we go Cryssie this is for you!

If lamenting can help us solve anything I will be sitting in my room whole day. Change in life is inevitable. What would happen to us if our lives just stays the same? No bumpy ride...all sugar and roses...that's why some people go crazy...

After all if we do not change, how can we grow up? Pain, sadness, frustration, meeting, parting, and the thing that hurts the most, breaking up will always be with us no matter where and when.

While there is always a little part part deep inside us, afraid, terrified of what may is very important to embrace the change, and go with the flow....the less resistance you give...the easier your live will be...I know it's a cliche but sometimes having the courage to give up is very important.

Plus you are never alone when the change comes. Family, good friends...will always be right there for you...that I'm sure. Don't you think they will get angry if you say that you will be alone? In the end, no one call tell you to do anything but yourself and we all know that. Most importantly be honest and fair to yourself...don't beat up yourself too much....being masochistic has its limits =p...Anyways just keep looking for the silver lining okay!! ^^

Every little thing

I like to talk to people..that's the kind of person I am...whenever I'm free or always seemed to me like it is nothing but people to people relationship are really complicated...their opinions of you and you of them...and as we get to know more of each other..we give them judgment...then gradually the way we talk to them began to shape..we either reject or accept a least that is how I juggle my is hard to accept the personality of a person once you rejected subconsciously.....

And these are all the little things that make a relationship on between two people....deciding whether you are close or not...things that tickles your heart when someone is mention or thought of...things that get you excited...things that hurts you...but the most annoying one i have to say are the indescribable feeling that pinches your does not hurt nor project any certain just plainly irritates you...yeah sometimes you get that with some people..and it causes all sorts of trouble...guys if any of you out there have this feeling pour it out!!! Or else this chronic illness is going to ruin your health! =p

American Stereotyping

To err is human and I have plenty of faults. If one of them being studying harder than the average lazy-ass American then screw you! Do not get me wrong I do not hate America, I love fact God bless America and f#$k the rest of the world. But it always bugged me the way Americans love to categorize people in types.

While it is the land of opportunities where gold is unlimited if you are capable to find them, it is also the land of bullshit. Now tell me how am I nerdy seeing that I study and get good grades? Isn't it given that you go to college to study? So are you lazy? Or are you envious? These people should get a life and stop having a complex for themselves.

While you are pointing, giving nicknames to people better than you, "we" the NERDS, GEEKS etc are happy with our lives. So get off out back and go back to your miserable reality. One advice, the sooner you face your own stupidity the faster you can cure it. Oh, wait stupidity has no here I am contradicting myself again..done raging goodnight
