Oh my gosh I am so embarrassed I haven't updated in forEVER!
So much has happened... but all my friends here have been on my mind throughout these months.
Okay so a quick summary of what I've been doing this last year, all in this paragraph so that you may skip this paragraph if it bores you ^_^ I took my 3 courses on real estate, then passed the exam, so I have my real estate license now. I'm a regular on Chuck this second season, so they've been keeping us busy on set. We went to all these publicity things like this:

and packaging for this new project. We finished and printed our short
film from last year "Cinder" (yaye!) and I've been training a lot in
dance and martial arts, and dealing with RAID configurations on my
I created a new little website for my family and friends at
http://www.julialing.net And then we shot a trailer called BLACK DRAGON, starring Xin Wuku. It was the featured spotlight on youtube yesterday.
A few months ago, I went to Sequoia to find some peace and fresh air in the woods. There were signs posted everywhere that read, Keep Your Dogs in Your Car! Active Bear Site!
I drove to about 8,000 feet elevation when suddenly, noticed the most breathtaking, amazing scenic view ever! I decided to pull off to the side of the road, park and sit down at the edge to appreciate the majesty of the mountains.
And then I saw it.... Down along the precipice below me, ... a pretty black bear.
As I admired how the little bear was so comfortable gracing the forest of such vast lands, I realized the sun was quickly setting. I figured it was time to go home before the roads turned pitch black. But forgetting that I was 8,000 feet up and the air was really thin, I stood up way too quickly and blacked out!
In the few short seconds that I felt light-headed, I managed to knock my purse over the edge of the cliff. Of course, my car keys were in it.
It's now near freezing temperature, the ground was covered in snow, the camp sites in the area were all still closed, I was locked out of my car, and my purse was down below at the base of the hill, guarded by a bear.
Throughout the night, only three vehicles drove past, but nobody stopped because they didn't see me waving.
I debated whether I should break my car windows and grab my strobe light and camping gear, but decided against it. I had a pen in my pocket, and dug a tiny trench under my car where I ended up spending the night.
In the morning, I climbed down the mountain, took a few hours to find my purse, and was soon well on my way climbing back up. Of course I was trembling and messed up for the rest of the day, but it was a good life's experience!
The funniest part of it all was that the story made its way into my next episode of Chuck! After explaining to our executive producer why I had so many bruises, he added a bear-camp line to my dialogue! =)
