September 30, 2008

Today consisted of:

1. My first experience of a dog in seizure. It was sad because the owner felt like she had no choice but to put her dog down for financial problems.

2. Having a Crunchwrap Supreme at Taco Bell all alone. I used eight packets of hot sauce for just that one Crunchwrap, it’s insane how much condiments I use for food.

3. Going to Target to kill an hour of lunch left and ending up buying a bag of Kit Kat Bars, Andes Chocolate Mints, and two $1 stuffed monster toys for Riley (which he threw at the floor the minute I gave it to him).

4. Receiving a responsiblity at work I never thought I would get this soon. You probably don’t understand how great I felt when he handed me a key to the clinic this afternoon. “This is your copy, now don’t lose it dear,” is what he said but the subliminal message I heard was, “I trust you.”

I’m happy and tired at the same time. Tomorrow is Pudge’s grooming appointment at Petsmart and I hope that goes well. His fur is going nuts and he’s shedding all over my sheets so me and my mom figured that it’s time for them to chop it all off again. I’ll post some pictures tomorrow to show you how funny he looks with short hair, it’s hilarious. Hah

Hey guys! I’m starting to get the hang of using WordPress with all it’s nifty features that Blogspot never had. On top of that I’m feeling more confident about blogging every single day again (possibly even more, but don’t count on it too much), it probably sounds pretty creepy how much I’m into this but I won’t take it offensively if you think so. Haha! Today I woke up early and actually cleaned the hallway in front of my room because there were dozens of cups and bottled water compiled there for about a month already. My sister was starting to get the spending urge again so we ended up shopping at Brea Mall for about two hours. Hmm, I wonder if shopping endorphins exist because if they do, I probably get it every time I pull out my wallet :] For lunch, we went close to home for Little Tokyo Shabu Shabu, everyone who knows us knows that the restaurant is mine and my sister’s sacred eating place. If we ever went a week without a taste of ponzu sauce, who knows what would happen?

Home is where the heart is, home is also where we dye our hair and always manage to stain the granite counter with smears of brown or red. Because of me, my sister’s hair is now more of a hot red color today than she had before. Her red head is so intense that it causes her schoolmates to rename her from Pauline to “Little Mermaid.” Cute.

I’m getting an early sleep today because I’m the only assistant Dr. has scheduled to work in the morning and that means I need the strength to cover receptionist and assisting him. Thank goodness Lily didn’t schedule any surgeries for Monday’s and Tuesday this coming month or I’d be one big wreck. On the plus side, I get to wear my new dog print scrubs! See you tomorrow.

I’m still categorizing my past blogs little by little every day so I won’t feel so overwhelmed if I try to finish it all at one time. Thanks for your patience :]

officially moved
September 28, 2008

Welcome to my new WordPress Blog! So I decided to put forth some effort, go all out, and actually create my own template (which I never thought I was capable of) on my brand spankin’ new blog. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed spending a couple hours creating it. It may look a little on the empty side for now but I’m still trying to work out the kinks on the comments page and whatnot.  I don’t know for sure how long that will take but I’m sure those of you who are regulars will notice. I also still need to add a couple of widgets on the right hand side for your enjoyment. If you haven’t noticed yet I’ve changed the title of my blog for the third time, only because it was appropriate for the theme I’ve created and I’m a very, very indecisive person. I can’t wait until this blog is officially done.

excuse me

I’m still trying to get the hang of using WordPress. So give me a couple days (or hours) to settle down and fix my page up. Thanks for your patience!

for a pessimist i’m pretty optimistic
September 26, 2008

Well, I’m not really pessimistic, but that’s a great song. Good morning everyone. So far, the day hasn’t exactly been going great for me because:

1. I’ve been sneezing from the minute I woke up and I haven’t stopped since. My allergies are obviously back.

2. I’m having one of those days where none of my clothes look good on me.

3. I’m at Cerritos Mall, how great can that be? I’d rather be at the vet even if I have to put up with Mrs. E reminding me about everything I already know. Gotta love her.

4. I just received news from my auntie Jean that my parents will not be coming back tonight because their flight was delayed by a couple hours in Bangkok.

5. That exam I took yesterday has been nagging my conscience all night and day. Nevertheless, I will remain optimistic about the situation, whatever it may be.

6. Did I mention how much the insides of my nostrils itch from the allergies?

On the other hand, there are a couple of things I should be excited about…

1. I’m going to Brea after work to visit my little monster, Riley. I’m already groveling from not be able to see him for a whole week.

2. With my parents’ flight being delayed, I have extra time to clean the house tonight.

3. Wicked next Friday!

4. Franco’s Birthday next weekend. He’s getting so old!

5. Last but not least, I opened the door this morning to a package of complimentary Godiva chocolates sent to my mom. She doesn’t enjoy eating chocolate so I’m going to devour the box with absolutely no guilt today. I think I deserve it, just this once.

If blogspot should ever delete me from being the “spam” that I am, I’ll most likely move my blogging to WordPress (as suggested by my cousin, Desi a.k.a Mr. Google/Mr. Gizmodo). If that should happen, I’ll give everyone the heads up as to what my new link will be. Thanks for reading!

“I don’t know if there’s life after death, but there’s life after birth. And that’s what you gave your dog for a long 19 years. Life.” -Dr. Paul A. Evans

Another inspiring quote from the man himself after a sad euthanasia today at work. No matter how long I’ll be in the Veterinary field, my eyes will never fail to water whenever I see the owner clutching their dog in their arms for one last time. If one day I should stop feeling sad about putting an animal to sleep, I think that would be a sign for me to quit the field and that’s my word.

So I finally took my entrance exam at school today and I’m not feeling too good about how I did. Instead of the test being multiple choice it turned out to be a complete question and answer deal. Whatever the results I’ll be happy because I’m already where I want to be. If I should want to go further, I’ll definitely be ready for anything. Until then.

Here I am sitting in Silverlink cursing to myself about the free Wi-Fi Cerritos Mall provides us with. The only reason I’m fussing is because Myspace is blocked, blogger thinks my blog is a spammer and they haven’t yet gotten the chance to review it before it automatically deletes itself in 20 days. Maybe I should’ve stuck with Xanga or Live Journal. Or maybe I could possibly be pessimistic about being here in the first place which gives me a perfectly good reason to complain about the insignificant dilemmas in my life. No more complaining, Vicky.

After a few months of swearing off Cinnabon, I didn’t think I’d ever cave in but today I’ve failed horribly. I hardly think a Mini Cinnabon is going to kill me, since it’s half the size of a regular one, right? It was pretty darn satisfying too. Just wait until I get to Max’s Manila tonight for some Dinuguan and Halo Halo, I’m really hoping they have Puto to go with that Dinuguan. Thank you for driving to see me tonight babe, I know it’s mostly because you want your iPod Touch already. Asshole.

Tomorrow I need to drive to Garden Grove to my school (PVAS) to turn in my application. I’m also required to take an entrance exam to enter the Vet Assistant Program and if I should fail that I’m going to be very disappointed. So wish me luck!

But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it’s better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you’re fighting for. –Paulo Coelho

September 23, 2008

After working at the pet clinic for a while I start imagining that certain foods smell somewhat like the stuff I smell at work everyday. I don’t know it but I’m going to take a shot in the dark and assume this happens to people who’s workplace has plenty of distinct smells, especially in the medical field. Don’t worry, this little problem doesn’t really affect my appetite. I usually take a whiff of what I’m eating and think, “Hey, I think I smelled this while I was holding down that Chow Chow earlier,” and continue my lunch. Not a big deal. Work was not as busy as me and Lily expected, especially with Dr. E back, we were anticipating the worse but fortunately it didn’t happen. I asked Dr. E for a week off in October for a Jewelry Convention in Miami; he was very nice about it and told me it wasn’t a problem at all. He also offered to buy me some scrubs, gotta love him.

Today my parents finally called from Thailand to check up on me and my sister. They didn’t even bother to call 2 weeks ago when they first arrived in Bangkok, instead they choose to call 4 days before they come home, weirdos. Honestly, I could definitely use a couple more days of parental freedom but it does not mean that I don’t miss them.

The Big Bang Theory season premier was on CBS tonight and it was great! I almost forgot how much I’ve missed watching this show on my Zune; but now I get to watch it on my DVR anytime I want to! Awesome.
