Bruno's Ristorante

Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
Oh, let's go back to the start...
-The Scientist, Coldplay

We went out to an Italian restaurant because it was my mom's friend's last day staying here in Texas... He's returning back to China. It was a good meal.

^The Grilled Portobello Mushroom appetizer! Served with Marsala wine sauce and sun dried tomatoes.

^Sunyun Shu-Shu's amazing Bruno's special! Veal, chicken, and shrimp sauteed in a Brandy mushroom cream sauce.

^My mother's Fettuccine Alfredo with Shrimp! Tossed in a Parmesan cream sauce.

Unfortunately, I didn't take a proper picture of my meal, which was also pretty darn amazing. Dang it! Oh well. I thought I took the picture, but when I came back home, I couldn't find the file...

So, B (Korean guy) decided to tell me what he and my boyfriend were talking about during Spanish...
B: "You know what? I think that ____ would make a really good girlfriend... She's smart and good-looking enough, and she's really nice too."
BF: "Oh, really?"
B: "Yeah... You think I should ask her out?"
BF: " you really like her?"
B: "Well, sure!"
Later, B tells my boyfriend he was just kidding, and that I'm just a good friend.
He never realized until today that my boyfriend and I were in a relationship... Nice move, B.

You and I are black and white
I'm hot, you're cool
We're a mystery couple
-Black and White, G.NA

My boyfriend touched me on the neck yesterday. He had been complaining about a giant pimple growing on his neck.

Well, guess what? I discovered a pimple on my neck - almost in the same exact spot as his!!!

What. The. Hell.

The Best Message

没有你, 我会是谁?
-绝不能失去你, F4

This is the best message I have ever received. Trust me - any girl would be flattered to hear this... ;) Whether he is your best friend or something more, it doesn't matter. Sometimes, I think we just need to feel special...

Pues, Pues

I love you more than I did before
And if today I don't see your face,
Nothing's changed, no one could take your place
It gets harder every day...
-Stay, Miley Cyrus

Today was so much fun - and then I received a certain email.

It resembled a small novel. Seriously.

But it also made me realize that I still love him too, though I'm not sure if it's in a romantic sense anymore. I absolutely don't want anything to do with him anymore, and I miss my uncomplicated, single life.

When I first went out with my boyfriend, I thought that what I always wanted was for my best guy friend to always be there for me and act like an older brother and stay in love with me forever. Now, I'm not quite sure...

Challenge Accepted

我的爱 - 全都给你
我的心 - 不会放弃
-表白 (Off My Mind), Henry Lau
Am I insane for agreeing to another bet? Why do I keep making the same mistakes again and again?

I promised to myself that I wouldn't make another bet... they're too much trouble... and then a few hours later, BAM! I make another one.

All because I wanted a stupid answer to a stupid question that I already know... What have I gotten myself into?!

But this is why he's my good friend. He knows exactly what motivates me to study and get my grades up. I dunno... if someone ever advises you to go out with your best friend, I guess I would agree - except sometimes it might be annoying that your boyfriend knows you so well.

Anyway~ my dad went out golfing this morning and noticed that his golf balls kept moving... And then he realized it was because there was a baby turtle among his equipment! We've decided to keep him. He could be a good influence on Lisa, our old turtle.
I've decided to name him Chase... He's the most adorable thing ever! I forgot what it was like when Lisa was a baby... She's 10 years-old now, d'you know? I picked her up from the lake when I was six years-old, and now I'm 16... It's amazing how quickly time goes by!

I'm looking forward to the future now~ Finding a turtle is always a good sign, right? They live for a long time and they're so constant... And Chase is so spirited too! He really brings me a lot of hope^^

A New Leaf

-Lydia, F.I.R

So I think I have a lot of resentment and stress building up right now, but I'll try not to let it get to me. It's kind of complicated and weird to explain, and I feel like I can't tell anyone, but at the same time, I also feel like I've been revealing too much to everyone. Here's the situation:
  1. I am an overachiever who is currently failing Chemistry. I'm not even sure where my problem is. I'm not confused with the concepts at all; it just seems as if I keep making the stupidest mistakes on the tests.
  2. My friend is depressed, and I don't know how to help her. I took the easy way out and sort of gave up on her, and so if she is angry at me, I completely understand.
  3. I have a boyfriend who doesn't want to talk to me - not that I blame him. If I were him, I wouldn't want to talk to me either. But I don't know what's going to happen anymore, and that's kind of scary.
The third one sounds so stupid, like a typical teenager girl complaint, but it actually really bothers me. It seems like the best solution is to just move on, but he was also my oppa as well as my best friend and boyfriend. Not like I'm encouraging incest or anything! Mind you, we are definitely not blood-related... or related in any way at all. But he was like an older brother, the way he took care of me... T_T And I miss having somebody who is always looking out for me.

It's okay though. I try not to take life too seriously.

Look, Annie had this cute little app on her phone where it would compare your face to a Korean celebrity. She took a goofy picture of me, and these were my results. Uncannily similar, huh?
