on friday we went to UCI to visit some friends. on our drive there, ghettopink offered ohfuee some hall's cough drop. however inside each candy had ant remainings (a leg here and there). then both of us became wary about the cookies she was feeding us... (which she claimed she baked the nite before). j/k ;p the drive was amazingly fast. we first dropped by jack's place (ghettopink's church friend). very interesting guy and through him we found out that ghettopink has a crush with... UCI! it's been her 3rd day @ UCI this week! we then went to visit johno. ohfuee and johno jammed with his guitars for a bit and we met rudy, his roommate. i later found out that rudy was msticazn's best friend, who goes to cal with me and is part of my anime club. msticazn was also ohfuee's chem lab partner. it's a small world isnt it?
after we got back, slicktran picked us up and we went to his fellowship. met a bunch of cool people and since me and ohfuee were newbies, we played this game called psychologist. there weren't any detailed rules on how to play it besides as psychologists, we're suppose to ask the patients questions and figure out what the problem is. i would tell you how the game was played but once you know it, it'll ruin it for you.
i went home afterwards, picked up some stuff and went to sleepover @ ohfuee's place. we played texas holdem poker with fake chips for awhile. jeff (ohfuee's church friend) won. slicktran also sleptover. in the morning, ohfuee picked up daizie and joehk that morning and ghettopink dropped by sometime later. i was on my way to my 2nd snowboarding experience. @ wrightwood, we bumped into jack (from irvine) and daniel (another one of ohfuee's church friend) met up with us. this time we went to Mountain High East Resort. there ohfuee and daniel taught heang, ghettopink taught daizie, and jeff taught me and slicktran. i finally learn how to go face-first! it's so much easier than back-first. we went down the bunny slope a couple of times. then i went down my first blue square slope. while daniel, jeff, and ohfuee were practicing their jumping and carving skills, i was just trying to strengthen my balance. i did try to carve a bit with daniel's help, but was a major failure. advice to future snowboarders who want to learn how to carve, "don't start off on a steep hill!" i practically slid for 50-100 yds each time i fell. i was going to try the black diamond, but then slicktran and joehk said they were going down the blue square again and i chickened out and went with them. there was this double black diamond which was very scary and extremely steep. only a few have attempted it while i was there. later on, daizie was unfortunate and sprained her ankle. she says she's better now. that's good to hear. ^_^x on our way back, there was a lot of traffic on the 10-West (dunno why) so i took the carpool lane, which was stupid because it didn't let met get out until the 710 which was past my exit. grrrrr, so NEVER TAKE THE CARPOOL LANE ON THE 10-WEST! had to drive all the way to soto and make a U.
overheard my dad's conversation with my uncle and found out that Gov. Davis has proposed that sales tax be increased by 1%. dunno if it's going to pass but don't u think 9.25% (9.75% in SF) is a bit TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH?!?! here's the article. if you want to read up on it.
did your parents ever tell you to trust them, that everything they tell you to do is for your own good. well, i figured out one of the reasons why teenagers are rebelious. today, while driving with my dad, he asked several questions in which i answered "truthfully". he then responds that he doesn't believe me and then tells me his "assumption" on what the "truth" is. from that point on, i just stayed quiet. i figured that he already has a mental set on what is fact and what is false, then there's no reason for me to say anymore. anything more i say usually makes the situation worse. then during lunch, he asks the same question to my uncle about his college life and he agrees to everything i said. i mean to question if i'm telling the truth or not in front of me. and he wonders why i keep stuff away from him. for a trust to work, it doesn't only work 1 way. both ways must have the same amount of trust in each other. to shatter once again my trust like that. sigh...
