I'm going to be honest with myself. Having left my hometown (or at least the first city I grew up in when i first landed on this country) and having moved away from it in the middle of highschool, then moved back has really been the most awkward transition of my life.

It sucks having entered my pre-teen years and exited them, then followed my early teenage years with the same friends, then having to go through a painful phase of having to leave everything and everyone I grew up with behind. I struggled so much during my first year in San Diego. I'd cry about what I left behind. After trying to exit that shell of independence I tried to socialize more, and the more I let myself be, I actually got used to living in such a (truly) nice environment and I let myself once again, open up and become affectionate to people and places.

Having actually established some of the closest relationships I have ever made during my senior year, again..having to move back to my "hometown" after having gone through so much in one year (possibly more than had gone through my freshmen and sophomore year combined) has been tough. Not going to lie.

It's true that college was going to tear everyone apart..but sometimes I feel like I'm being pulled in two directions. I truly dispise it, but the fact of the matter is, I don't know who my true friends are anymore. Sure, I call so and so my friend, or she and him a "shoulder to cry on," but let's be honest, if I were stuck in a certain situation, would that individual drive himself a certain distance to help me? I don't know. I ask myself this question often.

I'm one of those who socializes with different people. I like to be friends with many and whether it'd be quiet people, nerdy people, party people, so let it be. So who is part of this list, known as "my friends?" Probably a little bit of all those people, but now I've come to realize I am puzzled by who really would lend me a hand when I am in need of one. .

Ironically, San Diego is seen as this sheltered bubble (at least where I resided, the Del Mar/ La Jolla area) of plastic and fake niceness, and truthfully, I think that these 3 certain individuals whom I've known for less than 2 years, would actually be more of a friend role than the "friends" I've had in Fremont for the past six years.

I know that I play a role in this too. I did, at times, distance myself from old surroundings and people, and I do somewhat believe in the saying, "What an individual gets is the cause of his own misery," but is this really what I deserve? There are people out there who I have cared so much about, yet it seems like I don't get much in return except a "hey lets 'watch a movie' "

Maybe I'm over analyzing everything about my social life, and maybe not. To be honest, I don't know.

But that's just me, I think about things too much, too often.

I got a job offer to be on this weekly television series where mixed kids appear on tv or something. I went to the interview and yeah basically I can't do it because I'm only here temporarily so I wouldn't be able to do at least 5 episodes, which they need (which would keep me here till September which again is a def no-go by the parents)

I am so bummed!!!! ;( Oh well it wasn't very good pay anyway, only $50 per episode. kinda sad huh , i thought i'd get like $300/episode or something lol

i got a Diane Von Furstenberg dress for prom! i was soo amped when i saw it. all the marc jacobs stuff wasn't that good.. i think all the good ones already sold out . oh well.. Diane Von Furstenberg will do! haha my limit was $400 but it was on sale for only $200 (before it was $365) i think in this case i can for sure go to missions prom cos i can use the leftover money for the plane ticket. i was hesitant at first cos it'd be SO much money especially since i'm going to my school's, too! ..why are mission prom tickets ridiculously expensive!? they're only $80/couple here..

OH WELL, I'M STILL AMPED


and i found marc jacobs shoes but they were $200 and i was like nah i don't wanna spend $200 on shoes, who does, right?

ps: i was disappointed with bcbg, not to mention EVERYONE is gonna wear that :p
