America's Recycle Day

Everyone tells me that I can't do
What you do
Don't make me laugh
I do what I want...
-Huh, 4minute
A fun Eco-Club activity where we encourage recycling and reusing old materials around Valley Ranch! Passed out flyers, helped discard paper properly, took in batteries to prevent toxic poisoning, etc. It lasted the entire morning and then we ate pizza afterwards.
Fun day!

When Describing Life

I've had foolish fancies that turn into dreaming,
but never believed a dream could be like this:
I am fair, fair, immaculate,
the room pure, pure perfection,
with the lovely silk cushions,
and the joy-of-love quilts,
and these elegant footsteps were so unhurried,
these whispered words most enchanting.
What I described didn't seem to happen rapidly,
but then, strangely, became only temporary,
and I woke to nothingness,
suddenly aware that all is
an empty illusion...

YH: "It's so cold in Qingdao right now... I don't know how it is in Dallas, but be careful not to catch a cold. Dress warmly, and don't make me come ten thousand miles to check!"
Me: "Don't be silly!! It's as warm as Mexico down here! Why don't you get out of Russia and come ten thousand miles to party in paradise instead!"

Hehe, oh what a wonderful brother~ Is he still my gege? Maybe not, hmm? I don't know, I don't care!!

Typical Drama

B tried to kiss me in Physics today - in front of everyone. That was kind of really weird and awkward... Well first, I'm impressed with his audacity but I don't appreciate the attention. Just like how I'm flattered that he thinks I'm attractive but I don't reciprocate his feelings.

Sw, one of my close Korean friends, later told me that he asked B why he tried to kiss me. B's reaction was apparently something like this:

"Uh... I don't know. Instinct?"

Huh. At first, I was just a little annoyed at his persistance especially because I wasn't encouraging him at all, but B kept talking to me and then he said some things about my best friend that really really REALLY made me kind of furious. I was going to reject him anyway, but the things he said just convinced me even more that I was right.

See, the thing is: I don't want any drama in my life. I'm a very practical, independent person, and I prefer to not have anybody relying on me too much for his/her happiness. It makes me a little uneasy.

Another thing is the fact that I could never get into another high school relationship again. I don't want to be dragged down, and I can't get rid of that other feeling... you know... but oh...
