That is the longest I’ve ever run and to others it may not be… But damn I really feel good! #365daysofpics #326 #Running #lakemerritt #Oakland
I will say, going to somaR was a bust tonight. Numero uno, I wasn’t on one meaning I couldn’t fully enjoy myself dancing D: I know lame, but when I’m a bit tipsy, all fucks are thrown out the door and dancing Sim is out. But when sober Sim is awake, I’m dancin cause I’m kinda feelin it… Anyways, this one fool tried to get me to dance but seriously, my knee was buggin me out :( He even gave me a lap dance ahahaha but it was not sexy AT ALL. There were a few handsomes out tonight.. but no hollering involved. After somaR, we went to The House of Chicken and Waffles in Jack London (I think that’s the name of the restaurant). It was a 45 minute wait -__________- but Po, J, and I made some friends. Hahaha how can I describe… I told the girls there was this handsome fella down yonder, and before you know it, we’re talking to his friend who happens to call him over O_O ahahhaa J puts me on blast and tells him I think he’s cute O_______O ahahahahah but hey, I got his number :) and his homeboy was talkin to me, but I think for conversation. I hope handsome fella didn’t think I was tryin to swoop on his homeboy! It just so happens that I sat next to him. But it is what it is, hopefully baby B (handsome fella) will text me later today hahaha.
I’m too awake. I need to sleep! Fuckk.
Hope you all enjoyed your first friday of March!

This whole weekend, I have been kind of a sap.
Once again, here I am blaming Mother Nature for my mood. Don’t get me wrong, I was so happy to be in Oakland with my sister and her husband. I just was out of it. But let me update you on what I did this weekend. I drove up on Friday night and caught up with my sister per usu. Then we painted our nails at midnight and thank God for quick dry top coat! I fell asleep to Ouran Host Club (watch it, YOU won’t REGRET IT). I woke up on Saturday morning and watched more Ouran (yeah, I’m kind of addicted haha). Then around Noon, Chris, my sister, their friends Brian and his girlfriend Stephanie, and I went to SF for the Red Bull Flugtug. I enjoyed looking at the different contraptions that competed that day. Before we left the team that was in the lead was Movember. Afterwards, we went back to Oakland to hang out before dinner. I had a fat headache and took a nap. We ate at a hipster pizza spot and caught up with my sister’s friend Angela who has been out of the country for 2 years teaching/voice acting in Korea. After dinner we headed back to my sister’s and Chris’ place and I was just dead beat. Perhaps it’s because it was just a long day or my sleepless nights have been catching up with me. Anyways, I went to bed around 1 and woke up today at 9 am. My sister and I were on a mission to find me some khakis and a polo for my first day of volunteer tomorrow! I’m feeling nervous a bit, but at the same time excited. I have no idea what to expect, but let’s hope it goes well (crosses my fingers). Other than that, my sister and I studied at Barnes and Noble, ate at Fuddruckers, and bought a few goodies at Sephora. I splurged on Bobbi Brown Peach Corrector :3 BUT these dark circles under my eyes seep through my regular concealer! Gotta fix it some how!! No regrets. We got back to her place around 4 and just hung out for the time being; did laundry, talked, watched youtube videos, ate snacks, mmm what else did we do? Haha no idea.
But I am bummed this weekend is over :(
My sister leaves for NY this week, I have a chemistry test next Monday, then it’s Thanksgiving, and my Mom’s birthday!!
I remember when this semester just started and was complaining for it to be over! Look, it’s already the 2nd week of November O_O
Anyways, I am promising myself that I will not pull an all nighter for this 3rd exam. Consistent studying this week. That is the plan.
Must. Pass. This. Exam.
Good night all! Hope you enjoyed your 5,4,3 day weekend (whichever one you had)!

First Fridays in Oakland with Po and Jenny! #365daysofpics #227 #Firstfridays #Oakland #October5th (Taken with Instagram)
I got a call around 8:30 last night from my friend Paulina.
“SIMONE, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” “…watching tv, painting my nails…” “COME OUT HERE NOW, DRESS CUTE, WEAR HEELS!”
I could not deny the excitement in her voice! I could not! I jumped in the shower and got ready. I had no idea what I was getting myself in for. I am making more of an effort to put myself out there, to just adventure, and enjoy my college years. I called my Jenny Chhy and told her I was going to swoop her up in 45 minutes. Surprisingly, she was down to go. There was no traffic on the 880, thank goodness. I mean, it was 9:30 by the time I left haha. I got to Jen’s house and she sees me and was like “NUMBER 1, WHERE ARE WE GOING?! AND WHY THE FUCK DO YOU LOOK SO CUTE?!” I said, “PAULINA SAID TO WEAR HEELS!” So Ms. Chhy ran back upstairs to change her attire hahaha. I call Paulina and ask her where exactly are we going? She told me this party called Project X. Paulina honestly just wanted to go to see how ratchet Oakland parties were and Jenny, who is born and raised in Oakland said, “RATCHET IS RATCHET in OAKLAND. If black people are there… IT IS RATCHET.” ahahhahahaha Good Gahd, when I think about what Jenny said.. I just start bustin up! Anyways, we drive to Po’s near Lake Merritt. That was the first time I went to an area that I was unfamiliar with. Scared? Mm, kinda, but not really. Po picks us up from my car and we leave for Project X. Driving in Oakland at night (the areas I am unfamiliar with) was quite the adventure. As I saw the street numbers increase… I was thinking “Shit is this party in the HUNDREDS?!” Barely… hahaha we were by 98th… So by the time we got to the party it was ALREADY BROKEN UP before midnight! Let me tell you, there were A LOT of people there. A lot of cops. Po decided to go into a Pak n Save parking lot where I had a high dose of ratchetness. People throwing dry ice, guys approaching Po’s car talking to us, thick girls wearing the tightest clothes, tight enough to rip! I was enthused. Po felt so bad that I drove up 45 minutes for nothing, but I reassured her that it was fine! I woulda been at home being a loser. It was a damn adventure! We decided to go to the Denny’s across the street and stayed there til 1:30. Had a great time just at Denny’s talking with Po and Jenny. People watching, having guys hit on Po(!), eating, just enjoying each other’s company. By the time I dropped off Jen, I actually ran a red light, gahd I’m such a bad ass -___- lol I left Oakland around 1:50 and cruised down the freeway like cake. Driving in the early hours of the morning is quite nice. I blasted my pandora and put my car in cruise control. But, I started getting sleepy so I opened my windows and actually tested out different speeds haha. I really wanted to push 100, but I haven’t done that since driving up for my move. I did push 90 which felt really fast with no one around. I got home around 2:30? Took off my clothes and went to bed at 4 in undies and a shirt and woke up at 10.
Now I’m bummin it. I think I’m gonna run in a bit before my cousin gets m. A long awaited hang out with my Kuya Emil is now going to happen! Hopefully we get sushi because I have been craving it. Kuya Emil is basically my brother. I mean technicalities, he is my God father/cousin, but I think of him as an older older brother. A male figure I can talk to about things I can’t tell my own brother. I’m just excited :)
I wrote too much haha
I hope all of you enjoy the great weather!
Glossy eyes for days. One of the best friends I could ever be blessed with! #Jenny #Oakland #tbt #bestfriend #love #chocolatewasted #365daysofpics #211 (Taken with Instagram)
