hot hot heat!

Holy frickers! It's really hot right now. My trusty weather report tells me it's a scorching 70 degrees right now! I think 70 degrees in the day time is already ridiculously hot, so 70 at night is well, super ridiculous. How will I ever fall asleep? I guess it's shorts and a tee-shirt tonight--sans the comforter as well.

It was hovering around the low-90s this afternoon, which was nice and all, but way too hot for my San Francisco tastes. As such, I've been itching to play with some water guns, or even water balloons. I'd really enjoy pelting a big, plump water balloon at some of my friends (: HAHA.

It's that time of semester again!

I've had a moderately chill first couple weeks of the semester, but as we all know, good things like this come to an end within a couple weeks. It's midterm season. What I most dislike about midterm season is the fact that once it starts, it doesn't seem to end. As soon as I complete my first round of midterms, creeping around the corner is my second round. I have a paper due tomorrow--my first major assignment of the semester--and I'm already feel a bit of strain and stress. Aren't midterms just the best?

On another note, since it's still relatively early in the school semester and midterms haven't truly hit yet (but hey, I should be on my toes and studying all the time) I've tried my best to make some homemade meals instead of relying on microwavable hot pockets. I know that once I'm deep in midterm season, that's all I'll be eating.  There's just no time for anything, but studying. Anyway, I just want to say "Look, I cooked!" I made chicken for tacos!

Oh, something else worth nothing: I obtained a research position with my history professor!
I’ll be digging archives for Black Panther political posters during the era of the Black Power Movement (1960s-1980s) and examining these pieces through the lens of “black cultural politics”. How did these expressive cultural works influence the politics of this era? How did they influence the move to social action? 

I am beyond excited!

another year i claim, of total indifference.

Yep, I turned twenty today. My friends decided to acknowledge this with food, gifts and "happy birthday" messages. Thank you all for everything.

from facebook past

It dawned on me just the other day that maybe I should sift through my old facebook profile posts--examine past months worth of status updates, photo uploads, and comment posts from friends just to reflect a bit upon this past year. Here's some interesting status updates I stumbled upon from my little blast from facebook past:

"Saw a creeper urinating into a trash can in wheeler. ewww." posted May 5, 2010
"Signed up for the wrong class. -__-" posted January 9, 2010 
"Got sleepy and zoned out during a 'fundamentally important lecture'. =[" posted October 15, 2009
"Walked into a closed door in Evans Hall and proceeded to push at it like an idiot for a good five seconds before realizing it had a knob." posted September 30, 2009
"I've always known that I have a pretty badass date of birth." posted September 9, 2009.
"MMM...'ménage à trois'." posted August 28, 2009

Looks like I've had an interesting year. 
Cupcake photo is totally irrelevant, I know.  I guess it's just that I wanted to acknowledge that I have had two cupcakes in one week. Yes, I bought one today and I ate it.

My roomies rock!

We live right by a cupcakery. I'm a bit surprised none of us had ever tried any of the cupcakes until today. I guess we were all trying to avoid eating baked goodies, especially the scary sugary cupcakes. Today Wendy and Liza stopped by and picked up a half dozen cupcakes--one for each of us. How sweet! I had a red velvet. It wasn't overly sweet, which is just the way I like it.
