USA beach volleyball is……
#1 (for now)
but i still think the women’s game was more exciting/interesting than the men’s game

yay Singapore got the silver for table tennis..first medal of any kind in quite awhile =)
too bad the girl who got it is a native Beijing-er..

i find all these new “naturalized citizenships” a bit strange.. i don’t fault people for wanting to compete and play and i think it’s a little overboard to get mad and call them traitors.. i just find it..strange

USA Redeem Team vs Argentina tmrw morning bright and early
hopefully i can wake up

as i was telling someone earlier.. nowadays i find it a waste to wake up at 1/2pm cuz then the day’s pretty much over = i dunno why i found such joy in waking up so late (i guess the fact that i COULD do it) in the past..although i’m still not a fan of sleeping early.
i procrastinate life too much, something i keep wanting to fix..maybe a step at a time, but then i end up pushing those steps aside too.. go figure.

back up job: work in a bookshop/library =)
hopefully we don’t need a degree for that…

at least i’m reverting back to my voracious reading while i still can (and i’m looking for more good reading material..suggestions welcome). and i plan on watching all last season’s House before getting back to UT so i can be all caught up =)

“Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner; no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.” – JodiPicoult, “My Sister’s Keeper”
[i can see how it’s true..just wonder if it’s false as well.. cuz aren’t there some people who truly enjoy solitude? i guess maybe not all the time? but what if some people do? guess it’s up to people to individually figure it out for themselves..]
regardless..she’s an amazing writer =) maybe if i read enough of her books i’ll find that there’s a slight hint of a formula, but the formula’s so amazing that i’ll continue to read them all the same
i tried staying away just because everyone else was reading (kinda like Harry Potter, which i only started reading after watching the first movie), but now i’m hooked like a lot of the world’s population. sigh.

tundras are humongous.
my gums suck. and molars. and ex-wisdom teeth.
