As you know, I have a strange imagination…

Lately, I’ve been packing my lunch 4 times a week to improve my diet, save money, and be more concious about the kinds of foods I eat.

Anywhoo, as I ate an apple the other day, the most random question crossed my mind…

Long story short, no mercy. Lol. Apples are delicious.

Umm…yeah. There’s absolutely no point to this post. Just felt like sharing the random thoughts of my mind. 

Speaking of random…I was tickled to see one of my favorite Korean singer/rappers make it viral online. Oppah Gangnam Style! Go Psy! Korea Fighting!

Have a wonderful weekend!

It was free donut day recently at Krispy Kreme.

So my friend and co-worker Chris and I went over to indulge in the free treat after work.

Because my mom and brother absolutely love Krispy Kreme donuts, I decided that while I was at it, I would bring a half dozen home with me. Box, ice coffee, and free donut stacked in hand, Chris and I headed out the door where a storm was brewing outside.

And then…tragedy struck.

It was a sign. No donut for me.

Which was probably for the best, considering that I’m on a diet. That’s what I get for cheating…

Anyway, at least the rest of the donuts made it safely home! Good times!

I’m heading out to NYC this weekend for a nice vacation road trip. Have a wonderful weekend, my lovely readers, and if you’re on the east coast, enjoy the fantastic weather!

Is it just me or is it cold out here?

Brr…

I take public transportation to work, and that means a lot of waiting outside in the cold until the bus arrives.

Before I went to work today, my awesome mom handed me a little care package for the road.

 

Ahh…that moment when you realize no matter how crazy your mom may sound at first…she always ends up being right.

I felt pretty bad for the people standing in line with me. I kept fondling the toasty warm eggs in my pocket, and I’m sure that I made a pretty strange sight.

Anywhoo, stay warm, my lovely readers, and stay healthy~

Everyone seems to be getting sick, so pump that Purell! Wash them hands! And if you are sick, please don’t cough without covering your mouth with your sleeve! Thaaanks~

Phew! 2011 is OVAH, and 2012 is HERE!

According to the WordPress Summary Report I got yesterday:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

That’s a lot of love. Thank you all for making 2011 the most successful year yet for my blog!

Since Christmas, I have been reflecting on the past year, and how much has changed in my life since last January

  1. In January, I rang in the New Year with my friends in New Jersey, and spent the rest of the month battling icy sidewalks, broken apartment heaters, and searching for my snow-buried car.
  2. In February, I continued to deal with crazy NYC Metro incidents, and Starbucks came out with their new “Trenta”-sized coffee.
  3. In March, I talked dirty to the Starbucks baristas, got bitten by a Vampider, and packed my bags to move back to the MD/DC area to work as an architect!
  4. In April, I shot my very first firearm, and shared trade secrets, including how to avoid bedtime bugs and how to make their very own photo comics~
  5. In May, I enjoyed my mother’s amazing cooking, tried to bring sexy back, almost accidentally killed my brother, and went fishing for river monsters.
  6. In June, I practiced my golf swing at the range, and tried to convince a stranger that I didn’t fart in an elevator.
  7. In July, my family went to Orlando’s Islands of Aventure, Faith gave a shot at making her own comics, and I pondered deeply on what my Prius would look like if it was a Transformer
  8. In August, I broke down and finally got myself a new computer, and experienced one of the most disgusting things in my life, and it was all my dad’s fault.
  9. In September, I went fossil hunting with my dad, helped my grandfather get Sex on the Beach, and had a stranger’s butt too close for comfort to my face.
  10. In October, I got myself some new glasses, and learned how to deal with my Dad’s creeping and my Mom’s backseat Facebook driving.
  11. In November, I began my very first Mini-Series comics (in which my own boss cameo’d), celebrated 11/11/11 at 11:11 am, and started my own Non-Profit Organization for Haiti by selling my comics.
  12. Finally, in December, I got to try my hand out again as a photographer, gingerbread architect, and singer/dancer.

What in the world could 2012 possibly bring? 2011 had a new job, new lifestyle, new locale, new friends, and a new look for me. I lost 15 lbs, started a non-profit that raised over $1000 in a month’s time, worked for a job that I absolutely love, and am the happiest I have been in a long time. I have no idea, but I have a really good feeling that God is still going to outdo 2011~

My own goals for 2012 include becoming fully licensed as an architect by the end of 2012, taking the New Mercy Project to the next level, and Lord willing (as corny as it may sound), finding love.

And no worries, lovely readers. I’ll be sure to take you all on this journey with me. Here’s to 2012~

새해 복 많이 받으세요!

My dad is a practical joker and is fascinated by gross things.

A very dangerous combination.

I was eating dinner last night, minding my own business, when my Dad decided to come on up and show me something.

Not gonna lie, I almost puked. As many of you know by now, I HATE BUGS. I will bungee jump off of the world’s tallest tower without hesitation, but I will NOT touch an insect unless my very life is on the line, let alone a wasp-parasite-infested-caterpiller.

Ugh. Ugh! UGH!

But…if you’re weird and interested in that kind of stuff, you can see a high-res of the parasite caterpillar zombie my dad found HERE.

Did you click the link? Gross.

UPDATE: I found out that the hornworm caterpillar that was covered in parasites was actually being a huge pest in my mom’s tomato garden, so I’m kind of glad it was getting consumed.

Plus, I learned that when they transform, they turn into one of THESE.

AUUUUUUUGHHHHHHHHH!!! If I had to rank my least favorite bugs, moths are my number one!

So good riddance, and good job, little waspies!

I’m on a mission to lose weight in a healthy way.

Instead of crash dieting, I’m trying to monitor more of what I intake, along with regular exercise at least 3 times a week, to slowly but more permanently shed the lbs.

Still, it doesn’t come without its own share of difficulties and struggles.

 

Everything about this story is true…I just happened to find my pillow on the floor later that morning.

Fortunately, the ends do justify the means.

One more week to go! I’m hoping to lose 3-4 more pounds, and I’ll be at my fitness peak~ Wish me luck!
