Stick shift and SF

no, I wasn't driving stick shift in san francisco - that would just be asking for it. However, JT was gracious enough to take me out yesterday in his car and let me tool around in the Foothill College parking lot, showing me how to get into first and second gear. Thankfully, there was no gear grinding, although I did stall out a countless number of times :P I'm finally getting a feel for it though, and usually when I feel it about to stall I can recover. Whee! Haha, when I finally get my corvette, I'll let you drive it, JT ;o)

I did however, drive to SF last night to go clubbing with my girls. We went to Suede on the north shore.. it was like, all asian people, haha. But I had suuuuuch a good time dancing with my loud, crazy girls. It was fuuuun. I missed clubbing. Left around 12:30 to drive home which meant that I didn't get to sleep until 2, and somehow still woke up at 9 this morning? Gross. Oh! And I got to see Janet, and dropped her off at her place in SF before clubbing (she lives in the boonies!) Other amusements - I wasn't on the guest list but Bonnie got me in for a discount anyway, and their way of showing whether or not you had your name on the guest list was that they gave you a condom. What sucked was that they took it back when you finally got to the door to pay. You'd think that if they were going to charge you $10 anyway to get in that they'd let you keep the damn condom. Anyways, I got to see lots of Mike Chen's friends, whom I hadn't caught up with in a long time, got to dance on the catwalk with my best girls, and be girly and silly which I don't do very often.

I'm currently listening to Aimee Mann, and about to start working on my Milton paper. I was sad to learn that the Stanford library is not open today, so I have to go SJSU to make sure I have the resources I need. SAd, becuase the stanford library is awesome (except for the fact that they're not open, and therefore suck).

My mom and I also went shopping at Macy's yesterday, which was a lot of fun :o) I forgot how much fun it is to go out with my mommy. hehee... :D I got these Bandolino shoes and then a pair of jeans. Eventually I'm going to have to stop buying my jeans in the teens ThisIsIt section of Macy's, but hopefully that won't be for a long while :o) That makes TWO pairs of jeans I have that don't have holes in the butt pocket, ie work friendly. Excitement.

What else...? Ummm, things are good in general :o) I feel pretty balanced and happy, although there's nowhere near enough time ever to do the things that I want to do. I miss Jack as always, but am lucky enough to be able to talk to him almost everyday either over skype or gmail chat. The other day my mom came in and asked me "is everything okay? are you happy?" I realized that I have absolutely nothing worth complaining about. My life is ridiculously good. I'm one of the luckiest people in the world to be cared about by so many loving, wonderful people.
