On Socialism and Communism.
I hope people take the time to understand what these two ideologies truly mean before they use them as labels. Our minds have been bent by the media to perceive these two ideals as negative. But in their truest form, they have positives as well. My point is, don’t go claiming something falls into one of these ideologies if you a) can’t define it yourself, and b) don’t...
Today was rather
satisfying. I understood the poem in English, worked on my website in Web Design, finished some homework in Calculus, and ran the best workout of the season for track. It was twelve 400m intervals, with a 100m walk in between each. I completed each one in around 1:20. I marched through the twelfth one when my side felt like splitting after the eleventh. I even added on two 200m strides after the...
What a bizarre
day. Debated in English first period, watched Do The Right Thing in Film fifth period, left at 2:00 during sixth for track meet, walked home in twenty minutes, left house at 2:50, got stuck in traffic, went wrong direction on Hesperian, finally got to Chabot at 3:40, race was at 4:00, checked in, quickly warmed up, found out I needed a parking permit, ran a 5:09 mile, was NOT about to get...
San Jose State University: Accepted Cal Poly San Luis Obispo: Accepted University of California San Diego: Rejected Cal Poly Pomona: Accepted University of California Santa Barbara: Accepted University of California Berkeley: Rejected Four for six. Not too bad I’d say. See you in San Luis Obispo, loves. =)
you’d just pick Cal Poly and get it over with.” Shut the fuck up Mom. It’s my future. She’s done this to me for as long as I can remember. It’s this stupid game of “You can do whatever you like, but this is how I’d do it.” And she proceeds to make it well known to me what her clear “choice” for me is, even though she ultimately leaves...
epitomizes the ignorant American youth to the utmost degree. I wish he’d shut the fuck up in Government.

I must say,
I was pretty disappointed in the hours before Bandapalooza. Sincerely, Your Superior dropped out, and it seemed like hardly anyone was coming. But as soon as I got on that stage, it was game time. My mind went completely blank. I was no longer a student; I was a performer. Suddenly, my guitar was easier to play. I felt so comfortable and in the zone. I played all four songs without thinking,...
1 mile in 5:15. 400 in 58.04. I really want to be faster than this. I’ve got a lot of work to do.
You crazy? You think I’m gonna give up beer? I’m Catholic, not holy.– Carlos, my stepdad, in regards to Lent.
This totally made my day.
preparation and lack of organization are a total killjoy for me. Both of those were present tonight, and to be honest it really dampened what was a pretty fun night. I lost my voice from all the excitement and yelling. Sure, the actual event itself wasn’t the best, but I really enjoy dressing up and spending time with friends. Isn’t that what it’s all about? I hate it when...
Erik: We got to fifth base.

Me: Omg Ketan YOU'RE SO DUMB D:
Ketan: Dude i went on google and typed it in rofl nothings come to search foo try it watch
A good running day
ruined by a bad guitar day. It’s been two years since I last ran the mile in a race. Today, I ran it in 5:13. I also ran the 4x400 in 59.3. Not a bad start to the season. I hate restringing my Fender, and I hate solos that I can’t play. Shit.
