The Boyfriend

Okay i really don’t have a boyfriend or want one at this instance. But i did get to see Emily’s The Boyfriend musical at her school, Pearl River. It was amazing and i’m definitely glad i went. Emily can freakin sing and she is the awesomest French headmistress ever! And…i must say it was weird seeing her flirting and acting all scandalously. So that picture up there is composed of 25 hairpins dug up from Emily’s hair from the play. 25!!! i didn’t take pictures during the play because i was dumb but someone will probably post them up and i’ll just link it there.

Eric and i explored Alley Pond Park yesterday and we found bike trails!! YEAH! It was so FUN! It was twisty like a TORNADO! i need to put up some videos of how great it was. We were flying! We couldn’t believe how we never found this area, having lived her for more than a decade. We could go from Douglaston to Bell Boulevard to wherever. HM BIKING!

Today, teenLIGHT had a Photo Scavenger Hunt at Union Square. It was nice. i liked it. i wasn’t really playing because i designed the routes but Winnie and Marcus were with me so the photo batch of this one sided team is here.

i’m supposed to be studying Physics and Biology and U.S. History but i don’t feel like it. i am looking forward to the middle of May because that’s when all the major exams for junior year will be over with. It will be a relief. But i’m learning to move on from stupid test scores and feelings of being dumb.

Please hear these words:

Yesterday was not quite what it could’ve been. As were most of all the days before. But I swear today, with every breath I’m breathing in. I’ll be trying to make it so much more. :: Cause it seems I get so hung up on. The history of what’s gone wrong. That the hope of a new day is sometimes hard to see. But I’m finally catching on to it. Yeah the past is just a conduit. And the light there at the end is where I’ll be. :: Cause I’m on the up and up. I’m on the up and up. And I haven’t given up. Given up on what. I know I’m capable of. Yeah I’m on the up and up. Yeah there’s nothing left to prove. Cause I’m just trying to be. A better version of me. For you. :: To be prosperous would not require much of me. You see, contentment is all that it entails. To be content with where I am, and getting where I need to be. And moving past the past where I have failed. :: For you never cease to supply. Me with what I need for a good life. So when I’m down, I”ll hold my head up high. Cause you’re the reason why, yeah you’re why.

THE PERFECT BACON SANDWICH? NO WAY!

Filed under: buddies, eric, my stuff, school — mete23 @ 11:21 pm

Researchers at Leeds University claim they have found the formula for the PERFECT BACON SANDWICH. HMMM! my mouth is watering. Check this out: N = C + {fb(cm) ยท fb(tc)} + fb(Ts) + fc ยท ta. The variables are hilarious! It’s called a butty sandwich! Haha. courtesy New York Times

More depressing news for Seniors ’08, me included. This year had the lowest acceptance rates across the board for Ivy Leagues. Stanford had a 10.3% acceptance rate, Harvard 9%, the lowest in the nation Columbia-8.9%!! And that’s not the worse part, next year will be the peak year for lowest acceptance rates. Great! Researchers blame these statistics on the baby boom and copious amounts of applications. Read more here. Again thanks NY Times.

Ms. Chudnovsky was my Spanish and Global teacher for freshmen and sophomore year, respectively. She brags about her husband, Eugene Chudnovsky. So i googled him. Actually, Eric did first and then he told me to go check it out. Man, this guy’s got stuff under his belt. i don’t know, but over 140 articles published is quite a lot to write and he’s got 2 books. Not books but they cost over $40! He has a U.S. and international flying license too…why does Ms. Chudnovsky teach? He is also in a bunch of important sounding committees.

i’m gonna be sporting this exotic looking thing around. It’s pretty shiny ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Pratima, if i put the shells close enough to my ears, i might hear Mexican water hehe.

Yummiest sushi alive. Due thanks. i’d eat them forever.

Tests are coming too soon, coming like trains ready to knock me down but i’m not ready to push them back like Spiderman.

Be Real Yo

Filed under: books, buddies, church, Music, my stuff, TV — mete23 @ 4:31 pm

Much to say. Spring Break right now. Not so much “spring” it’s freezing.

i’ll rewind back until Whole Foods grand opening. This one’s on East Houston and Bowery, right by the Chinatown YMCA. Angela and i trekked there on opening day and sampled everything we got our Chinese hands on. Hehe. We stayed for dinner as well and ran into some trouble at the Sushi bar, whatever. Check out this receipt, mad expensive yo:

But the food was delicious. i like supermarkets; they make me happy with their neatly stacked apples and oranges. Chocolate truffles and Turkish delights stared back at you behind clear, and i mean clear glass. They have people wash it like every 5 minutes.

Oh yeah! It was post SAT day! Good to forget things. i had a yummy time nevertheless.

i’m currently reading Donald Miller’s Blue Like Jazz . i know, i’m like two summers old.

Bethany Dillon’s new cd Waking Up debuted this past Tuesday. Heard good reviews.

To more current news, i just returned from a Boston/Rhode Island College Tour/Trip with Emily and her mum.

Tufts University. Boy can you see the beautiful campus.

Northeastern University.

We stopped by Harvard and Boston University as well but i didn’t take any pictures because i didn’t. Harvard by far has the nicest campus only because it needs to be internationally marketable, viewed, and arguably, the most famous university known worldwide. No way am i applying there.

i accidentally bumped into a festival that was nearby Cooper Union at the end of March. i ran into this cube intentionally because Amazing Race had a clue box here awhile back and it was just cool. It’s by Astor Place. i don’t know what it’s significance is though.

i’m suppose to be doing “a lot” of stuff right. i had four essays to write over the break and i’m glad i knocked them all down before Boston. But i have APs to study for and right now i’m not in the mood to. i also have to read another chapter in the biology textbook. This thing has been my second Bible this year. SO MUCH STUFF STUFF STUFF. or WORK WORK. My first Bible has been totally true to me.

Okay, it’s Miranda Moo’s 17th Birthday tomorrow. i’m gonna give her an early wish. She’s gonna kill me if she sees this but she’s in motherland England right now enjoying herself. Stinky head. No, i’m kidding. You are a rocking pants not lying cow amazing biology buddy friend times basketball buddy friend!

So these are the courses I hope to be taking next year. I don’t know it may be a burden but again, I wish to be in college before the second term arrives so grades won’t matter that much…but I don’t want to butcher up my APs. Photography and Orchestra supposedly will buoy my GPA. And maybe I’ll be in some classes with some friendy friends. ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s always fun.

But can you believe it? I’m gonna be a senior like….NEXT YEAR!
