20 down-10 to go
February 21, 2010

My lack of blogging is from my life’s lack of excitement, but what’s new? Well, obviously it’s been months since my last entry and I must say, I did not keep my word on my promise to put more effort into blogging. I’m not sending out anymore empty promises to my readers and for that, I am deeply sorry.

Let’s see, the past few months I’ve been doing nothing but working and losing weight. The working part? Bleh. The 20 lb weight loss? Halle-freaking-llujah! I realized I was packing on some major weight after I came home from the Alaska Cruise. So, I woke up one day and told myself, “You don’t want to go back to what you were before. Do something about it.” Honestly, I had no idea I’d be able to do this on my own. You know, without the aid of Jenny Craig (scoff). I must admit, last month I went back to JC for a week after realizing my weight was plateauing. I lost 2 lbs from it and quit soon after I realized I’ve already gone this far on my own, I don’t want to go back to frozen foods. I still have 10 more lbs to go before I take my trip to Thailand. Ooooh! Did I say Thailand? I swear every time I even hear the word ‘Thailand’ my heart jumps and I get giddy with oodles of excitement. Every time I manage to skip a year of going, I fully regret it. Maybe it’s a good thing because itย  makes me that much more anxious to go back. This June, I’ll be laying out in the sandy beaches looking out into the blue waters. Oh sweet Jesus (I mean Buddha?), I can’t wait. Wait, this sounds too familiar…

Paramore’s Spring Tour is coming up and unfortunately, the closest show to me that they decided to have was at Bakersfield. Paramore, I love you and everything, but I think I’ll skip out on the 2 hour drive late at night. I was hoping you’d add a show in Los Angeles or Orange County, but I don’t see such thing happening (tear). This year to commemorate my 4th year of undying love for Paramore, I’m going to get a tattoo of lyrics from the newest album ‘Brand New Eyes.’ Unfortunately, I don’t have the heart to tell you what song or to show you my idea yet until it has been inked onto my skin. Understandable, right? Yeah.

Happy Birthday Riley!
July 27, 2009

Do you recall me moping and whining about not being able to bake because of the condition of my kitchen? We’ll definitely have none of that anymore. After 6 long months of eating out and possibly gaining weight, my kitchen is officially finished with it’s renovation. I would also like to add that my oven is not only a regular oven, it’s a touchscreen oven. Fancy, I know. I already baked a few cupcakes last night and I think the designs turned out okay considering it was my first time shaping fondant. I still need a lot of practice. Let me know what you guys think ๐Ÿ˜€

A few months ago, I signed up for another meet and greet with Paramore just for the heck of it. Since I already won a meet & greet with them in 2007, I wasn’t expecting to win in the least bit. A couple of days ago, I signed on to the club website to check if they posted the winners. Well, it turns out that I have been picked to meet them again! Holy crap! I was planning on giving this meet & greet opportunity to my cousin Tam but apparently, that’s not allowed ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I can’t believe I’m going to meet Paramore again! Ahhhhh! The concert is 6 days away and I’m already squirming in my seat just thinking about it. My cousins are going to 2 of the shows; one takes place today, which is the first show No Doubt has here in LA. They are dedicated fans ๐Ÿ™‚

Last, but not least: Riley turns 2 years old today! I can’t believe how fast time flies when it comes to kids and their growth. Riley is truly a blessing in my life, I can’t emphasize that enough. He is now talking and interacting, not to mention he’s in his “No” phase and I secretly love it. I also love the fact that he calls me “kee-kee” because it’s impossible for him to say Vicky. Did I mention that he’s an indestructible ball of energy? And speaking of balls (no pun intended), his birthday party this year will be basketball themed which is very similar to last year’s. My cousin decided to celebrate his birthday the day after the No Doubt concert, so hopefully I won’t be too dead the morning after. Here’s what his invitation looks like, so if you didn’t get one, you’re not invited. Haaa! Joke lang (that was for Tammy).

Brand New Eyes
July 11, 2009

Brand New Eyes! That is the official name for Paramore’s next album and the release date is officially September 29. Three days ago the presale for this album was being held on the paramore.net site and all I have to say about it is..holy mother. You’re probably asking, “What’s so special about a presale of a CD that’s going to be out on it’s announced release date anyway?” No, my friend. This presale was for the Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set of Paramore’s BNE album. Doesn’t it sound so fancy? This special set is limited to 15,000 worldwide; worldwide and 15,000 sounded a little alarming to me so I was getting myself ready. It took hours to get through to this site so of course I was going a little nuts. With utmost disappointment and defeat, I gave up after five hours of trying. Only then it was the moment when Franco decided to try. You know, just for fun. He called me about an hour later to tell me that he got through and it’s all paid for. Hallelujah! The bad news is when I came home later that night to check the site (because I guess I’m somewhat of a masochist) the deluxe set had not yet been sold out and it took 2 seconds to order. I didn’t actually order another one, just testing it out. You know, for fun…So basically, I spent hours mourning the fact that I might not get what I want, for absolutely nothing.

FYI. It’s not official yet (boy, I like that word today), but I read that Paramore’s BNE tour will probably start sometime after Sept 29. Now, I have to start freaking out again.

Speaking of Paramore. No Doubt’s concert date is nearing and I’m really really really really really excited to finally see them again. I mean, my first concert ever was on my 16th birthday with my cousin Tammy to see No Doubt. My cousin practically cried because we were on the brink of touching her fingertips and I, on the other hand, was in complete awe. I will never forget that night. No Doubt and Paramore, who would’ve thought? The two greatest bands on the same stage performing (too bad it won’t be simultaneously). Pit is obviously going to be nuts so I have to wear steel toed boots. Joking. No Doubt is to Tammy as Paramore is to Vicky; it’s always been and always will be. See you on August 1st!

recap
February 26, 2009

Special thanks to my cousin Des for scoring pit tickets today to the much anticipated No Doubt concert! No need to keep reminding you that my bffs will be opening for them. ๐Ÿ˜€ย  I’m sure you’re tired of hearing me or everyone else talk about it. Haha!

Remember? No Doubt is to Tammy as Paramore is to Vicky. Never in my dreams did I imagine No Doubt and Paramore would be playing together. A year ago, I even made a Sidekick skin in honor of the two most awesome bands. What a gigantic coincidence. Let’s recap!

i out-paramored myself
February 17, 2009

So this month has been Paramore’s band appreciation month. Basically, the band holds one photo submitting contest every week for one month and whoever has the best photo under a category they’ve posted wins $30 to the FBR merchant store. We’re into the third week now and the category is “dedication.” What they want to see in the submitted photos is a time where we decorated our rooms, cars, or even ourselves in the name of Paramore. Sad to say, I wasn’t completely satisfied with the picture I sent in because there are a couple of missing items that I just couldn’t find. At least it has an illusion that makes it seem like there is a lot ofย  Paramore loot. Haha!

paramore galore

“junior” release
January 30, 2009

I just read Hayley’s blog. She mentioned that once they move into their rehearsal space/writing room they’re going to finish writing and pre-produce their third album. I can’t wait for their “next big thing.” Hopefully, it comes out in time for the brilliant ND/Paramore concert (I am fully aware that there will be other bands opening but I don’t count them, heh).

Read Hayley’s entry here.

My cousin just sent me an email announcing that NO DOUBT’S 2009 tour will include guests PARAMORE and THE SOUNDS. Shit son! I can’t wait!

short weekend
November 9, 2008

Why did Saturday fly by extra fast this week? After not having seen my boyfriend for two weeks I guess 8 hours of spending time together was barely enough for me. I know it’s only Sunday morning but I’ll already be going back to work tomorrow, augh! Right now, I’m wishing that I was still going to school so that I can enjoy the 4 day weekend that has been given to students for Veterans Day. Okay, I’m done complaining.

So my 21st birthday is coming up in two weeks and I’m hoping I can take a trip to Vegas or somewhere more creative (suggestions?). Franco doesn’t have any ideas for what to do on my birthday so we’ll probably end up going to Vegas at the last minute, I don’t enjoy wasting my time planning out events, let’s just go Babe! With all the changes and cirmcumstances, I’m hoping my cousins will be able to go too. Ugh, not to mention that I’ll have to save all of next week’s paycheck for this.

A few days ago I got news that Paramore Lost Show will be taking place at Hollywood & Highland in L.A., I know this will sound very awkward and wrong but: I’m not going. This will probably be the first Paramore show I’ll ever miss that’s within my area, depressing isn’t it? The day the concert is taking place will be on a Tuesday and god knows that I can’t miss work the next day. I wouldn’t be able to function! For some reason, I’m not too upset about missing their show this time because I guess my mentality is, “been there, done that.” Paramore, I’m waiting for your “next big thing.”

paramore and edward?

Paramore’s Decode music video for Twilight was released today and all I say about it is wow. Reading the book and seeing the characters and emotions come to life in this video feels amazing. It’s definitely not the same feeling that I had when reading Harry Potter and seeing that movie, this feels much more different. Everytime I see Edward in a flash I get the chills and somehow he does it to me again. I’m probably a sick person for sharing this with everyone but I know that almost every girl out there who is reading or has already read Twilight understands exactly how I feel. I’m a dork and I’m not afraid to say that I’m in love with a vampire! November 21st baby, see all of you lovesick girls there.

Last night I had a dream that Hayley Williams was waving at me through a window. I was getting ready to meet Paramore once again and then attend their exclusive outdoor concert where I would have the privilege of being in the front row again. When I woke up, I was so disappointed that it wasn’t real :[
