Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

Saturday, January 31, 2004

About my previous post- I am more convinced than ever that if you need to do/finish something, you need to do it ASAP.

I just found out that Jason's neighbors moved away. This is disheartening because I have been meaning to do or get something nice for them, but I put it off and now I won't ever be able to.

Ever since Jason moved in, they have been so kind to us. They woul give us tupperware filled with bahn chan (side dishes) and they always would have warm smiles for us. I've been meaning to fill up one of their tupperware with something and give it back, but I put it off thinking, "Tomorrow. There is always tomorrow."

Yesterday I went over, and noticed that the curtains were pulled back, showing an empty barren room. I don't know where they've gone. There were no good-byes. Now, I'm stuck with their tupperware and I never had a chance to say thanks for their loving presence in our lives.

This is really going to bug me for a long, long time.

My motto: "Don't put off til tomorrow what you can do today."
Jason's motto: "Why spaz about something today that you can do tomorrow."

My 26th birthday today! Happy birthday to me. Jason told me that he would take me for "good good sushi" but I told him I rather go to Todai instead. I like that place! Plus, you get a free gift certificate for one more dinner if you go on your brithday! What a treat!

Well, I was a big grouch yesterday and whined and whined about everything to anyone that would listen. Such a big whiny ass girl that I am. I whined about: having a messy car, not having any clothes to wear, the caterers charging us an arm and a leg, Jason thinking that we don't need a Dj at our wedding, that I'm confused about my dress, that I need a haircut (badly), that I ate too too much for three days in a row, that the prospective Dj talked on and on for 2 hours and it got on my nerves, that I didn't take Jason's suggestion of finding another route to meet the DJ and it took too long to get there, that our family dinner got postponed (again), that the favors I ordered for the dinner can't be postponed and I will have to give out rotten cookies to my family when the family dinner thing finally happens. etc, etc!

Now, I've even whined to y'all. (sorry!) It's too much to do and think about all my once, and my spaz-tic self can't handle it. At least I'll be happy tonight in Todai World.

Down payment?? Shit, it's not a car...I mean, deposit. Is that right?

Going on a field trip today. Hoping it won't rain.

Seeing some slight results from my Sunday's facial. Amazing! (Cause I know you wanted to know.)

Lastly, worried about The dress, which I already have a down payment on, but getting cold feet about. (Claudia just laughs in my face, which is not one bit nice.)

Monday morning. Damn, it's cold. I hate it when the school turns off all the heaters over the weekend and it's freezing in my classroom when I get in. There is nothing more miserable to me than being cold. I hate it. I once told Claudia, while sitting on the couch, that I couldn't do anything when I am cold . She told me that if I would get off my fat lazy ass and move my body, then I wouldn't be cold anymore. Maybe she is right.

Yesterday, I got a facial at Burke and Williams. The girl picked and pinched my face so much that now I feel bruised and raw. Hopefully, I will feel better soon. Note for the boys: There is a pretty good package that they are selling at Burke and Williams right now. It is called the Valentines Day Special; four different services (full sesson massage, full session facial, a salt glow, and a detox wrap) for $260. I think it is like a $60 savings or so. This is one of my favorites gifts to receive, and I bet your special girl would love it.

Well, another week... Have a good one!

Wedding update! Since I knew the ring was coming, I had begun planning like a month or two in advance. Therefore, we already have the time and place: 4:30, May 29th at the Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church. I am very close to finalizing my dress. (My mom is meeting the person who will make them and the different styles I want. If she oks it, which she probably will, then I will be able to cross out "dress" from my "to do" list.) Since I consider those two major details in planning a wedding- at least for the girl- I feel like I am close to being done!

It's not too bad. Planning a wedding, that it. Just as long as the girl has at least a small inkling of what she wants to begin with. Now, I am glad for all that I went through with Claud's wedding. (She kept telling me that I would thank her later. I didn't believe her at the time, but now I must admit, she was right.) It really opened my eyes to the various vendors I would need, different styles that I could choose from, and the overall feel of the wedding that I would want. So girls, even if you think that a wedding far off in your future, I would suggest that you start to think about it and keep your eye out for all things weddings. Trust me, in the long run, it will make your life so much more easier.

As for me, I have come to the concluson that I am a very traditional girl. As much as I want to think that I am a hip, casual, modern girl, it's just not happening. First of all, I've always wanted a church wedding and it is important to me to say my vows in the house of the Lord. So, I think that's very "traditional." Then as much as I think that I want a simple white dress with no poofiness whatsoever, I go to try on dresses and I like feeling like a princess in big ol' dresses that make me think I am an Asian Cinderella.
hmm.... well, four and a half months to figure it- and myself- all out.

A kid wrote today a note to his brother. It said, "I will love you until I am in a coffin." I thought that was sweet (?), odd (?). Kids sure say the funniest things.

A student wrote this in her writing journal today: Ms. Park got a big shimmering diamond from her feonsay. Feonsay! Too cute. Had to share.

What a big, big treat it is not to go into work until Tuesday.

Today, Claud and I went to see the beginning stages of her wedding video. It was a rather fun sight to see, and we both agreed that it was well worth the money to have captured for all eternity many friends and family members making fools out of themselves on the dance floor.

I don't feel well. I think it is because I haven't seen Jason all day, which is uncommon. I really, REALLY don't want to go to school tomorrow.

We're officially engaged! It happened yesterday in Santa Barbara and it was perfect.

Now all the planning truly begins! We only have a couple of months so it will be a hectic time for all. So many details to take care of.... but it will be so much fun!

Want to hear something funny? There is this girl that I met in one of my teacher classes. I could tell she's Korean and she looks strangely familiar to me, though I can't pinpoint where I had seen her face before. So, she comes up to me, looking as if she knows me too. Anyways, we get to talking and we figure out that we were in the same kindergarten class at Hoover Elementary, a mecca for Korean fobs in the 1980's. Anyways, so were both shocked and happy and think this is real damn cool, not to mention that we both think that we are genuis for remembering each other's face after all these years. I ask her about her cousin, who I vaguely remember being in our class too. She tells me that she is doing fine. And then, to wow her even more, I tell her, "There was this girl in our class, Young Joo. Well, her name is Jennifer now and she is like one of my best friends." And then, she saids- get this- "I remember her. She was the one you always hung out with and you two girls woult never let other girls play with you." How does she remember that?

haha. I thought this was so freakin' hilarious. This confirms it; Jenn and I were major snobs even at a young age.

Ok, so I was looking at some friendster sites (I sense some capital L's signs coming up to the forehead.) and I saw this girl's name, Moon Hui, and I thought, "Oh, I knew a girl name Moon Hui when I was younger" so I click on her site and, guess what?! It was her! What a trip. I want to write and say hi, but I don't remember the neighborhood girls being too kind to her nor recall me sticking up for her so she might have clumped me into a phase of her life that she would rather forget. Even though we were only five and six at the time. You never know- it could have been damaging.

hello. hello. it's been awhile.

I'll have to explain this one later, but I was just wondering if it would be completely tackless to send out invites to a pretty casual get together to very close family members with the street misspelled- specifially, one letter missing. Damn.

Should I do them over? It was pretty costly to begin with.

I wish I could write a long exciting account of my adventures during winter break, but there are none to tell. How sad.

Well, I did buy a single scoop of black cherry ice cream at Thrifty's in the midst of my sickness. There was not even one cherry in it and I was very, very disappointed.
