24th July, 2005. 11:32 pm. Taking a breather

After working my ass of for the past few weeks, I finally got some real time off. I spent the past three days @ the Huntington Beach Waterfront Hilton. I didn't do much but lay out on the beach and by the pool. It was nice! Tomorrow it's back to reality...but at least I'm well rested and nicely browned! =)

Current mood: calm.

I'm only working a very short 1/2 day shift....but I really don't want to. I would totally call in...only if I weren't a damn manager.

Current mood: annoyed.

10th May, 2005. 12:11 am. Holy crap....

Hooooly crap!!! It's been over a year since I last updated this thing. I totally forgot that I had a LJ. Maybe because MySpace is better, but then again I've got a Xanga as well and I haven't updated that in sometime either. Maybe in the back of my head I know that ain't nobody really reads my shit or gives a damn about what's going on in my life....blah blah blah. Whatever.

Anyhow, lots of thing have happened in the 12 months or so since I last updated. I don't know where to start. I'll just ramble on whatever pops into my head. Well first of all, career-wise, I'm no longer employed by TMI, but my ass is still @ Express. Deciding to leave TMI was one of the toughest moves that I've had to make. I can't believe I was there for almost 1 year. In terms of Express, no I didn't go back to UTC, I'm still @ Horton Plaza, but I'm a manager now. Thinks are ok. I both like and dislike lots of things about working there. For now, it just pays the bills. Aside from the change in my position and duties, lots of things have change within my store and within the company. Let's just say that on my desk I have a pile of applications for another possible job change. We'll see what happens.

"99 Problems, but a bitch ain't one!" Simply stated, that's where I stand in terms of my personal life. hahahahaha I ain't gonna name names, but I'll just say that sometimes there are reasons why some people come into your life, and there are also reasons why others fade away. I don't go out and party as much, mainly because my ass is too tired from work. But I'm happy being more of a homebody sometimes, so it's all good. (Except for a few weeks ago and some of my pee-poles from the bay were in town and I didn't even get a chance to see them because I was too tired to go downtown!)

What else? This past weekend was nice. Went to Disneyland...had a nice mother's day with my momma. There's lots of things to look forward to in the coming weeks: Eileen's graduation (and PARTY @ the house!), Rizel's wedding, and a trip to the Bay Area! Ok I'm getting tired now. I'll update mo' lata!

Current mood: tired.

20th April, 2004. 9:11 pm. "Barry Barry GOOD"

Oh man....I was totally into tonight's American Idol "Barry Mannilow" show. =X I was crackin' up when they flashed the Filipino brotha waving his "Barry Barry Good" sign for Jasmine Trias. Das a good wan! hahahahaha

The girls are totally taking over the show. They're really bringin' it, settin' it on the table, and opennin' it up! In contrast, the brothas on the show are hella weak. George Huff sucked ass tonight. And Simon hit it right on the head by saying that John Stevens put "Mandy" to sleep. I honestly like Carlton's version better. (I'm talkng about Carlton Bank from The Fresh Prince of BelAir!)

As of tonight, here's my prediction for American Idol's top 5

1) Jennifer Hudson
2) Jasmine Trias
3) Fantasia Barrino
4) LaToya London
5) Diana Degarmo


Current mood: amused.

8th April, 2004. 12:12 am. I'm back...

I've been missing in action for quite some time now, but I'm back for a little bit. I've been working really hard...but partying almost just as hard. It seems like when I'm not working, I'm up in LA! The past few weeks have been both extremely busy and extremely amazing.

Here's the reader's digest edition of what's been going on in my life for past few weeks (w/ a few pictures...Hey Apes, I hope you don't mind me borrowing some of your pictures Mahalo!):

I have a new job! I am now officially employed as CEF (Community Employment Facilitator) for TMI Employment Solutions. I'm excited about my first REAL full-time job where I get to use my degree! (More details on TMI soon!). I am also still with Express Men, but I'm moving on to bigger and better things with the company as I transfer to our Horton Plaza store.

My berfday luau was off the hook:


Me w/ some bay area peeps



con la familia Express



My LA family: Carlo, Ron, April...


My cake...without the candles! hahahahah

N.E.R.D and Black Eyed Peas @ the Wiltern in LA

April, Carlo, Jay and I had the most amazing night! We made lots of new friends including Cat (the infamous red Fanta chick...and dancer from the Ying Yang Twins Salt Shaker Video. I felt like we were really special VIPs that night because we got wristbands to stay in the front all night...and check this out....we got to meet the bands after the show!!!!



The lovely Cat w/ the lovely April. Yo Apes...lemme know when we gon kick it w/ Cat!




Yup..that is Justin Timberlake--the special surprise guest of the night. At one point of the show he was 3 feet away from me...and I could see hhis girl Cameron Diaz peepin' out from backstage. JT really brought the house down as he performed w/ BEP and N*E*R*D for most of their set. Yo JT, I ain't mad at ya playa...even though after what you did to my baby's mama (Janet). hahahaha



Hey MAMA! The super sexxxy Fergie of BEP.



Pharrell and Chad signing our stuff.


Me w/ Taboo of BEP (Yeah his name isTaboo...not Tabo as in for washing your puet...or your pek-pek. LOL)

Thank you again April for the bestest birthday gift in the whole wide world!!!!

Christine's Debut
My sister was one of the candles and I was one of the roses for our cousin Christine's 18th birthday in Cerritos. It was a fun night with family that I haven't seen in soooo long.




JANET JACKSON!!!!!
Last Friday I got to see my baby's mama Janet Jackson in Hollywood for a taping of OnAir with Ryan Seacrest I have hella awesome pictures...AND video footage!!!! My sister, Istine, Lexi, and Kim took pictures and video from the balcony and Rodney, Michele, and I took pictures from the floor. We were slick enough to be able to get our cameras through security and through the studio! It was worth waking up @ 4am and driving 3 hours in LA traffic to see her! Janet tore up the stage and she looked sooooo beautiful. I love Janet Damita Jo Jackson sooo much!





Current mood: happy.
