I finally packed my things for Honolulu; it’s just going to just a few days to celebrate a special birthday. It’s been nearly 7 years since I been to Oahu, I should very excited but I’m not. Perhaps, it’s because I didn’t get a chance to plan anything. I know, I should be glad that I didn’t have to do any planning, but I love doing. Letting go is so hard… =( sign..
Oh well, I have an early flight to catch so I better get to sleep early!
=) Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
When you don’t take care of yourself, it’s amazing how the pounds can add up so quickly! I’ve tried losing the weight on Atkins before (many years ago) and it worked really well. However, the weight came back ever-since I fell off the wagon. So this time, I'm determine to lose the weight and keeping it off by changing my entire lifestyle! Since I’m done with school, I’m going to start cooking more while cutting down on eating out (probably 2-3x week max.) Travel doesn’t count, since I can’t cook anyways. =) Hmmm.. It’s been a while since I've actually cooked a whole meal, can't wait!

I must say, I’ve been using my time efficiently this past week- researching and booking for things to do for Cancun! I’m proud to say that everything (well almost everything) is book for our 6-day trip to Cancun next week. =) We will be staying in two hotels. Why? Since we will be doing things/tours during the first four days, we decided to stay at a regular hotel in the hotel zone. Then we got ourselves an all-inclusive hotel in the hotel zone for the last two days, because we will be chilling at the beach most of the time. Yes, it’s a little costly, but it’s well worth it. Beside life is short, and there’s nothing wrong if we spurge a little on vacation right??
Finally, one last thing, I’m going to kill the next person who warms me about Mexico being a dangerous place, and why I need to cancel my trip. Yes, I know about the Mexican cartels and certain things I should avoid. After all, I’m not as naïve as I look. It’s not like I’m going there alone or driving around the US/Mexican Borders. Even though I wanted to rent a car in Mexico, to make things easier, the liability is not worth it. We might not be able to visit and do everything we want, but I think we will have fun regardless. I’m so ready to go on this trip! Ok, I still need to pack and the idea of going somewhere hot and humid doesn’t excite me to do so. Then again, I should do it soon- avoiding last minute packing and forgetting things I need.
Ps. =) I’m not sure why I love travel books so much! I can literally sit in a bookstore for hours reading all sorts of traveling books. If I have my own place, I’ll definitely have two bookshelves- one for travel & cookbooks, and another for all my novels.
It’s been nearly a monthly since graduation and I’ve not done much since. The odd thing is that I’ve been busy with school the past year that I no longer know what to do with my life at the moment? Is there such thing as a post-graduation blues? Is this normal for all graduates? Or perhaps I’m just making things up again? Seriously, I’ve literally did nothing valuable with my life since, it is as though my mind and body has completely shut down- went on vacation without me. It’s not like I don’t want a job. In fact, I’ve been looking for a job for the past week but nothing seems promising. Then again I haven’t turned on the pc much the past month. To make things worse, I've been avoiding my phone for the past few weeks-by leaving it in the car.
Furthermore, I wonder if I am panicking about life right now? It seem as though everyone is doing their own thing and I’m just stuck doing nothing. Then again, if I’m panicking about life- why am I nervous, scare and excited at the same time about the future? My mind keeps wondering if I will be able to find a decent job that pays ok? Will I find, no not find, will I meet that special someone soon? Will I lose that extra 30 pounds I’ve gain the past few year? Will I make enough money to put a down payment on my own place? Will I be able to change myself? Will I be more outgoing? Will…. .... ..... Well, I guess we will see…

Graduating on Saturday felt surreal! It’s been a roller coaster of emotions the past few weeks. Nevertheless, Saturday felt like a dream. I actually thought the ceremony was great! It was short but bittersweet! ^_~ I agree, Lenny Williams definitely rocked our commencement!! Everyone was dancing and cheering!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKjuwR86huQ Life is strange at times! For the past two years I couldn’t wait till the day graduation comes. Now that it’s done and passed, I really don’t know what to do with myself. I feel a bit guilty for being lazy the past few days, and doing nothing! Eventually I need to find a job which is what I’m doing at the moment?? I guess, I just need some time to figure out the hell I wanna do with my life???
Friday's game. May 11, 2012. Free Blanket for all ! A's wins 11-4 Detroit Tigers. =D The yelling and scream definitely help relieved some stress.There's nothing like watching a live game with other fans cheering on! It would be awesome if this was a game between the SF Giants and Oakland A's game! Battle of the Bay! Which team should I cheer for?Ps. I'm the one on the top left hand side.
It's my birthday today! Yet, I just feel so tired and stressed lately. I'm not even excited to go to happy hour/dinner tonight. To be honest, I just want to be left alone, is that too much to ask?

Ah! Another girl hoping to win the lottery! Why not? Estimated Jackpot $363 million ($259 cash option). It doesn’t hurt to try?? Do I need that much money? Heck no. I’ll live happily ever after with $5 million. The odd thing is, I usually don’t buy the lottery until the jackpot gets to the $150 million mark. I figure if God wants me to win, I should win big. *_~ j/k (maybe not) LOL
About 4 years ago, I did a similar post “10 Things You’d Buy If You Had a Million Dollars.”http://sassysweetgirl.blogspot.com/2008/01/10-things-youd-buy-if-you-had-million.html
What would you do with a million dollars? Looking back, I would never spend a million dollars on myself- even if someone gave me that money with no string attached.
Ps. Don’t worry, I wasn’t driving when I took this pic.
like I’ve become very clueless about life. Wouldn’t it be nice if “LIFE” can give us some directions at times?
Two years ago, I’ve decided to go back to school. Here I am, graduating in June. Was it hard? Yes, but then again, nothing is easy in life. Do I regret quitting my job? Yes and no! I miss it financially. My saving is completely drained, but it was worth it.
Given the poor labor market, I’ve been debating for the past few weeks if I should get my MBA? For the first time in my life, I don’t think it’s that hard to get a Master degree. The hardest part is the Master’s thesis, which is about 40+ pages. I just completed a 26 pages proposal for my senior project, and it took less than two weeks. After a few restless nights, I’ve decided not to submit my grad school application. There are a number of things I want to learn right, such as photography and filming, etc. Perhaps, I give myself a little more time to see what I want to do in life?
It’s 5:45am. Waiting for my ride to SFO, I’ll be going to Philly for 2.5 weeks and two days in NYC. I’m not sure why I’m so nervous about the trip? It’s not like I’ve never been there or never gone up to Tahoe for skiing, but 2.5 weeks in the cold sound a bit scary for a Northern Californian girl !! Feel like I haven’t packed enough! Oh well, there’s always a mall if I need anything.
I’ve got my books and mini laptop with me. Hope it’s a good trip! =)
http://instagram.com/silly_sindy Would like to meet some new friends!! Any suggestions or comment about filming are definitely welcome. =) Thanks in advance! ...Read more
