Q:You are cool and pretty, and this is fanmail.
Ha ha ha yaaayyyyyyy!!!!
All the happy moon bears!
Multiple, topic-specific blogs?
I’m wondering whether I should “expand” and have different blogs for everything that I blog about, but mostly about fitness. I do tend to blog most inclusively about fitness and working out.
Do any of you have any thoughts on this?
On another note, I kind of wish that I got asks and fan mail and other giggle-worthy things that indicates that things I write about are read. I suppose it’s a sort of satisfaction knowing that I’m not merely throwing out words.
Q:But baby get a new boyfriend! Youre supossed to be happy with your relationship like 24/7. Dont expect less........ NEVER.
I don’t want a new boyfriend. I love whom I’m with right now and am so happy and satisfied with our relationship. The only thing that sucks is that I’m an ocean away for summer school.
But then again, what do you know about my personal life, anon? That’s a really naive view on relationships. Every relationship needs obstacles.
I often spam my boyfriend’s FB inbox with Tumblr images and gifs
Because I really miss him and want to cuddle with him indefinitely.
He is too far away.
Should probably blog about China
So I’m doing the Chinese Summer LBAT program organized by my school, so I’m practically taking 12 credits of Chinese during the 9 weeks that I am here (6 weeks in Shanghai and 3 in Qingdao). Class has…. not been engaging for me. Three and a half hours straight is not the best way for kids to learn, especially at 8:30 in the morning, but we’re getting through.
I’ve been here since the 11th of May, and it’s been an interesting ride. I’ve met some very interesting people and some not so interesting people. We’ve been to The Bund, this amazing little tea shop on Nanjing road where I’ve spent more money than I should, karaoke, hot pot, and this shopping place that’s underground (sorry, I don’t know the name of it).
There are so many things to do in and around Shanghai, so I haven’t been bored yet, though I do feel quite drained from the lack of sleep.
Will blog more about this topic.
Insanity: Day 3 - Cardio Power and Resistance
It’s actually a really nice day today. I got up early in the morning (6:30am) to go out and do Insanity outside in the heat, though it wasn’t actually very hot at all. But humidity? Ick ick ick!
Needless to say, it was exhausting. It’s just so difficult to get back into the system of high impact + intensity, and let’s not couple in sleep deprivation. But I’m glad I got through it, minus the power jumps because my knees hurt and they always hurt more after them. Maybe I’m just not doing Power Jumps right.
But I’m showered and ready to eat breakfast. HUNGER!!!
Perfect description of me. Perfect description.
Sometimes I wonder whether I did the right thing by not doing the pre-health track. It’s definitely not too late to take all those Chemistry classes, but I’m wondering whether I should have taken organic chemistry instead of survey of organic chemistry or plan my schedule to include it.
Part of me is still kind of interested in veterinary school, but I’m still unsure whether I still want to do that. I mean, I want to do engineering—developing technology, specifically biomedical technology, is so amazing. There are so many things I can see myself working with in the future with BME and areas where I would be completely stoked to be working in. However, with medicine, I mostly see myself either using the degree to aid my knowledge to make better technology (essentially getting a medical degree to help me be a better biomedical engineer) and then kind of as a practitioner.
Hrm hrm hrm.
Tumblr + Yahoo
So today, Tumblr announced that they’ve been bought by Yahoo and that it wouldn’t change the goals of Tumblr.
I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it; as in, I haven’t even really decided whether I should read more about it or not. These really are just my initial thoughts after reading the Staff’s post.
On the one hand, I totally understand that Tumblr needs the money. They’ve been so good to us Tumblr users about advertisements and other annoying things. The amount of monetary input required to keep such a site running can’t be little, and the quality of the services and improvements made also deserves much more than we give Tumblr credit for.
On the other hand, it is slightly unsettling to know that Tumblr, something that I use daily, is owned by a corporation (can I say that?) that has not had the best track record with buying sites and keeping/making them successful.
Though there’s the possibility and ease of transferring to another blogging site, I find that my love for this platform and the type of information that I come across from fits my ‘demands’ infinitely more than any other social network site I have used before. Of course, everyone has their own standards and criteria when choosing services to use, but it feels to me that Tumblr gives me the perfect platform for what I want to use with a social networking site.
Currently, I feel quite neutral, but interested in this topic. I’d definitely have to read more into it and find out more from legitimate sources apart from a single message from Tumblr and gossip.
Insanity Summer ‘13: Day 1 (Fitness Test)
Started Insanity again today. I’m practically back at the level I was in November (at least I’ve had a net gain since last summer! Yesh) But alas, finals and whatnot have no been kind to my body. I gain so much weight when I get stressed sigh ( I wish I knew by how much, though. But I don’t have a scale and I don’t know where I can get one here)
So here are my fitness results from today, which I’m not entirely happy about, though I kind of want to take into account that this time, I’m doing it outdoors in 90 degree weather and I haven’t slept well at all since I’ve been here in Shanghai. I’ve never had to do it in such polluted air, either. My lungs felt kind of weird. I don’t know if it’s the humidity, air quality, or both.

Having the first emotional off day in a long time.
Even though at the back of my mind I know I don’t, I just want to rampage and want to watch the world burn.
Q:The chat icon, I mean.
Oh okay. So?
Q:Ah, So the green icon next to your name on facebook is a lie :( Sorry!
I’m back in Asia!
And…. no Facebook…..
So for all my FB friends, this is practically the only means I have of contacting any of you.
More stressed about packing than my last final. What.
