Have you ever won a contest, drawing, or lottery? What was the prize?
I won a gift card for J&R worth $100. Most I've ever won. Ended buying the Wii Fit. 

I've been on digg.com alot just because there's interesting things on there and quite silly things as well. I found this interesting. Part of an experiment, 4 year old children were place in a room alone with a marshmallow. They were told that if they left the marshmallow alone they would get another one after 15 minutes. It's basically testing the child's temptations and self-discipline. Apparently those children who could wait fifteen mintues would eventually become successful and those who just ate the marshmallow not so much. Fascinating. Self-discipline is hard.

I have a stomach virus. Therefore I cannot sleep. So why not make a post?

Saw this in a Huffington Post article:

"Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good."

In other words.

"In some situations, the happier course is to know when good enough is good enough, and not to worry about perfection or making the perfect choice."


And there ya have it.

I always wondered how they keep track of all the story lines at Lost. It's seems so convoluted. 
Apparently Gregg Nations is the 'go to' guy. He has notes from all the season which in his words could War and Peace a run for it's money. 

Also quick tid bit. A man put his job on the line by twittering that he was in a part of the country that we would visit but never live in. He was on a business trip and was called out for being disrespectful.  Just goes to show that you better watch what you write or you might get fired.

Also currently I'm having a ridiculous argument with moms cuz I won't go downstairs and get the air freshener. Dad  clearly asked her and then she obviously pushes the job onto me. I tell her I won't be taken advantage of, only because I could get away with this since I'm an only child. And now she's calling me a spoilt child, daddy's favorite girl. I'm gonna go get the gosh darn air freshener soon tho.

Juggling classes is kinda hard. I'm actually trying to be a good student this last year and actually read the text fully. It's taking forever. I am liking this year better since its a lot more interesting. I'm taking a lit class on contemporary India. It's by far my fave because it's about things I've always been interested in but didn't exactly know where to go and find out about it. This way its way easier, all the info we need is right in front of us.

Scultping could be better. Thought we were going to work with clay, but she's making us actually buy our own material and make our own life size sculpture. Not cool. I bought a whole bunch of yarn and wire and I'm gonna try to make Wonderwoman look like she's spinning. Computer networking and data mining are interesting courses. Very practical. That's the good thing about it. The only class I absolutely hate it Data Management. The class would be fine if we didn't have the professor. What a joke. She doesn't even know what she's teaching. I swear she looks like she drinks four martinis before class.

Took bhangra class at school. Only four classes but still pretty cool. Really involving and a pretty damn good workout. I'm thinking about knitting next. Ooh and also found a threading video on youtube and tried it and worked! Kinda.

Been reading alot and found an article about a teenager who was stabbed in the head with a 5 inch dinner knife. But luckily survived due to the quick arrival to the emergency room and also because they left the knife in his head.



Sarah Palin vs what's his name debate tomorrow. Tina Fey is so great as Palin.

Cicadas are scary. They make these frightening noises and are really large and should not be anywhere near my clothing line. But one was which made picking up clothes a way faster chore than it usually is today. Last week there was a tornado warning. Just wanted to remember that. There was a tornado warning in NY. Never thought I'd hear that. Internship's over. What a disappointment. Thought it would be better. High expectations suck. There were some nice people so it was all bad.
I don't transition. Gotta learn how to transition. Oh that reminds me of those Danzitions that Joel McHale used to have. The Soup is such a great show. And Anderson Cooper even watches it. That made my day. Watching Anderson Cooper completely rip on the Lohans. It's priceless.




Also Phelps. Big news. 8 golds. What talent. And what fantastic looking body. He's a butterface. Buttisface? I shouldn't admit my shallowness. Can't help it. Reality shows are taking over too. Shear Genius and Project Runway. But the Olympics are pretty good too. The opening ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Someone was comparing it to a Nazi regime, since there's no way a over 2000 people could coordinate like that without having a sole dictator. That ridiculous. Some people will do anything for a story. That reminds me of the show Greek. There's an Indian girl in it. (I love pointing out Indians on TV) And she's a total bitch. But its great cuz she's great at it. Greek is a pretty good show. I thought it would be stupid but it has heart.

Mamihlapinatapai, Guiness World Record for the most succinct word. (got from kottke)

It describes a look shared by two people with each wishing that the other will initiate something that both desire but which neither one wants to start. This could perhaps be translated more succinctly as "eye-contact implying 'after you...'". A more literal approximation is "ending up mutually at a loss as to what to do about each other".
Wish there were an English word for that feeling.

Things started this week for the internship. Yesterday was the orientation. 600 around the country. 200 ppl were there. For finance, tech, and operations. Super fun. Not. I thought it would be better. I guess it depends on ur personality. I need to be more outgoing. Ugh. There was so many icebreaker deal games. One about bingo in which we had to fill in the boxes by asking people in the room if they can apply. Some examples were who has a twin, who is left handed and some question about the company. Fun stuff! It was actually a pretty interesting concept. Then we learned more about the company. Then we played a kind of monopoly game style game to see who knows most about the company. We had to get into groups of six and i kinda had to get stuck with the outsiders with 3 other peeps. Ugh again. I can't believe how hard it is for me to fit in. It sucks major buttocks. I need to take initiative with this bs man.

After the game was lunch. I stayed with the outsider girl with me. Well she kinda followed me so I didn't mind. She's 22 but looks a lot older and is my height which is pretty good in a sense. I don't know if I'll see her,hopefully i do. The next game we played got into groups and we had to play cards we call Trump. Like spades and hearts. Except we couldn't speak and each group had a different set of rules on how the cards are ranked. Whoever won the game would then rotate clockwise and play with another team. The whole point of the game was to show transitioning into another job/department was like. Showed basically that you have to play along with other people even though you don't know what's goin on. Some rules are implied. Sometimes things are just how a dept does things and you just have to take it. Yea. Fun! :/

Then after that were was a panel and that was pretty interesting. That was the day. 45 min breakfast. 1:30 hr for lunch. 8-5 in the building. The day seriously could have been shorter. Seriously. Plus I had heals. And that was torture. Pure torture.

Ok so this post is basically venting cuz i feel like not good.

After the orientation I was sooooo flippin tired. Went to Midtown to prepare my route for the today. Then went home and rested my foot.

What was the advice that was given to us? Don't be late. I knew it would take 1 hour to get there so I wasn't worried. But for some reason I didn't want to wake up. Actually I know why. Cuz the orientation wasn't what I expected it to be. So today I didn't have high hopes for the first day of work. So I didn't really put much effort to getting out of the house. But soon enough time was running out and I had to jet. And fast. Next thing I know I'm there early. 8:40. I have to be there for 9. It's good I have time. So I decide to go get some tea and a donut. Take 10 minutes with that and get to the building. And to my horror. There was like 30 in a line. Waiting to check in through security. It took my like a half hour to get in. :((( I started sweating soo goddamn much. I hate being late. I really do. I think that made a huge impression. As soon as I got in the boss took me into a meeting and I stayed and looked in. Ugh. I already know I'm going to suffer through this lovely internship. First impressions suck.

Now I know I'm probably thinking way out of proportion but I seriously don't think I'll get a full time job. First impressions are everything. Fudge. Whole day boss was busy didn't really try to give me work. I flippin sat there. It sucks. It sucks so much. But its the first day. I need to make up for this bs. At least I got an intern behind me that might work out. I like his boss wayy better. He actually tries to help even though he's busy too. Every intern is in a team. So basically we're not working together. We're in a team with a bunch of professionals. I'm so intimidated. But just have to prove myself worthy. Or start looking for other jobs already hehe. Oh dear this isn't funny :D Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I really hope so.

OH. I bumped into people. One a member from a long time ago. He's working at Mount Sinai and volunteering at the UN. Pretty good stuff. I bumped into a girl from school walking near my job. It's so crazy how many times I bump into her at school and now at work. Super crazy. Also I saw a guy I had a crush on in highschool but didn't say anything then and didn't say anything now. So long ago. He looked good tho :)

Ok that's about it. I just wanted to vent. Getting to work late for the first day kinda ruined my life today. I exaggerate for effect :/

Cyanide and Happiness, a daily webcomic

I love corny jokes!
It's Independence Day in the home country :)
One more week of sloth and then a taste of real work. So exciting. Actually I'm going to try and really accomplish something I said was going to do. Cleaning, reading, cooking, learning to edit photos/sound. Anything. Also I downloaded a bunch of Colbie Cailat songs and now I'm just really laid back and daydreaming.

you heart tube

You tube is all Valentinesy. Cuteness!
I took the day off today and did I study? noooo. Watched TV and noticed just how big a deal Valentines day is.
Hadn't realized that. Mainly b/c it doesn't affect me.
I'm stalling on my Accounting HW. Must stop that.

Counseling Center will have a Wellness Week. At the end of the week -  Project Runway: I Love My Body Fashion Show.
I signed up with our club and now I don't know. Now I'm reluctant to walk down a catwalk.
We had a choice of casual, formal or cultural wear. I chose cultural.
Now we have to answer questions so it will be read as we walk. Ugh.
What do you like most about your body? ( I can only think of the bad. I guess that's the whole point of this fashion show.)
How would you describe your style?
What message do you want to send to people about body image?

Good questions. Another thing I learned from the Counseling Center. He said he doesn't tell anyone they look better thinner unless he really knows them. They just might have a eating disorder. That kinda stuck with me.
