“The irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating- in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life” ~ Starbucks cup
Made pineapple fried rice even carved the bowl. It’s for our friends house warming party.
Ever since his sister gave the dogs a hair cut, the dogs have been acting really horny. Maybe they look really attractive to each other with shorter hair.
So the dogs have been doing it a lot. In fact they knocked down a laptop and the cord. I freaked out to Mr. Fish “the cord is wrapped around Marshmellow’s neck! She might choke!” So Mr. Fish goes over to unwrap the cord. And then he goes “the cord is wet and I feel the cord is tense.”
Eww!!!!! Out of all things the dogs are stuck and the charger is too. Let’s just leave them alone. Pulling them apart might hurt.

I want to make a habit to take cold showers. It saves energy and it’s beneficial for your health :-). Honestly, I feel a lot better taking a cold shower.

Went to Mt. Soledad yesterday–the view from the top is gorgeous! You really can see pretty much all of San Diego.
Thank god for the WordPress app so I can always always blog on the go.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
What’s the plan for tonight?
I was thinking about going to Henessey’s in Pacific Beach to celebrate with my coworkers. Coincidentally my roommate is going with her coworkers. We’re not going together though, I’m going to the gym first and my roommate is going to her coworkers house. I wanted to go but why do I feel tired all of the sudden? I was pretty pumped up on going until I realized something–POLICE TRAP!! I mean gosh it’s going to be so funny trying to get out of PB. I was thinking of taking a cab and maybe Mr. Fish can designate drive me home or take the taxi.
Anyways away from the tangent, I like reading articles during my break time–any articles. This Psychology Today article caught my eye on people who have an allergic reaction to personal responsibilities. They call this person a Victim and I’ve met plenty of people in my life who played Victim. It’s quite annoying really–they don’t allow room for personal growth or change. I mean the Victim who calls out for help and then makes excuses and pushes it away saying “yes, I agree but…” which all end in “life is (very, very) hard” and buying into failure is fatal.
Actually as I got older, I became more bold, more direct figuring how to help the Victim to get over themselves. I them straight forward “your problem isn’t that unique–really it isn’t… because I’ve gone through this problem (or a friend I know gone through this situation.” Of course they’re not so happy to know they’re not unique and I tell them “this is how I got over my situation” (or how my friends got over their situation). The typical reaction from the Victim is “ehhh…” or make a face (of dismissing advice and anecdotes ) and then they come up with something–anything to why they’re still the only person in the world with that problem.
I try to avoid those type of people in my life. To me, I feel these Victims eventually just become emotional bullies guilt-tripping me to help them. But why go through the trouble of helping the Victim if they just make you feel miserable all the time like you’re always doing wrong? When really, the only solution I see to do is the drop them. Maybe dropping them may make them realign their views and realize they’re not so unique after all.

I like the quote so much, I’m going to repost again.
In college people told me that I should have a vlog since they were reading my blog. The funny thing was the people who read my blog were people I didn’t really talk to, when I was working on campus people would say “I read your blog” or “I read your latest entry last night” or “nice list”. My close friends in college never ever read my blog until I moved from LA. It’s really funny when I come back, my college friends would say “I read your blog…”
Actually back in high school, my classmates read my blog too.
Anyways would I ever have a vlog. That’s highly unlikely. I don’t really have the personality for it. It’s not the same as sharing a conversation if that’s why I should have a vlog. I would hate having my face on video the whole time.
