Q:what are you doing?
Whenever I think life gets a little too cruel, little joys come along to offset whatever foul state I’m likely to snowball into. So out of place and out of the blue like stubborn little plants growing through cement. Like if my life had some sort of rhythm, it syncopates it and they somehow break the things I have to endure into slightly more manageable chunks.
A package from NYC!
Why, hello, love! I’ve been gone quite a while nay?
Here’s a little story, then. Since the 8th, we’ve lost four of our employees. Not all of them at once, of course, one by one in the space of a week. Gone. Poof. Along with our good shirts and underwear and, we now discover, a bunch of carefully pilfered utensils and flatware from our kitchen.
So we’ve been at it, non-stop, just mom, dad, my sister and I.Since June 8 we’ve been having 5am-10pm work hours with all four of us in sour moods by around noon. We have no choice but to keep at it. Funny thing is, with everything that’s going on, we thought about an all out physical and operational revamp for the store for two days by ourselves. Two days closed plus a Saturday was maybe enough time for us to think of a way to keep the business going.
Mom, dad, the sister and myself. Talk about DIY. This is honestly the first time since that I’ve felt strong enough to go online. I think I have to give us some props for holding out til now. I mean, running a diner with just four people is quite hard. There’s purchasing, cooking, baking, serving, TONS of cleaning plus you have to slap on a smile on top of that.
Sometimes I wonder what other sort of misfortune I have to endure this year. I feel like I’ve had 5 years worth of life experience since the year started.
On a less depressing but not entirely unrelated note, did you know I’ve grown out all four wisdom teeth about two years ago. I might have miscalculated because I seriously have one more coming out now.
I felt like messing with Illustrator in the tiny window of time where I got to sneak inside my room in the slower hours of this afternoon. It got my mind off feeling exhausted, at least.
I practiced working with shapes so I thought of drawing a simple cupcake. I figured I could use it for our store, besides. Anyway, the tools feel a little wonky to me, half the time, I don’t even know what I”m dragging or clicking at.
I think I’m putting the program to shame because of this stock illustration looking cupcake. It looked too commercial so I tweaked it in Ps into something more to my liking.
It’s nice, waking up with something of a spring to my step. Days have been generally woeful but for the little happies that come which I try to make quite a big deal out of.
It is so out of place and a little sudden that I don’t know, this probably wouldn’t hold out til the end of the day, but I guess maybe there’s also a possibility things aren’t getting as out of control as I swore I knew for certain.
Like there’s this gigantic knob that curbs the gravity of the universe and somebody deliberately turned it down a notch, looking away and whistling.

And my future employers should know I only use the latest, most sophisticated layout programs available :))
I haven’t slept in a little short of 2 days but I still can’t quite make myself to, what with all the sugar I ate (I’m rabid as five obnoxious seven year olds) so I thought of making a portfolio for some of my business-related projects. MS Powerpoint is amaze. Remove background whoooo! Haha. I kid. I kid.
I’d say it’s been sixteen years since I last compiled some tracks. Or posted a bit of music in this dreary thing.
Another first. I do just barge into things, don’t I? Even the ingredients, I only had as basis my very few memories of eating at Japanese restaurants and this one time some childhood friends made some for us what must have been 11 summers ago now.
With the state of our pantry all I could think of was a california maki. Japanese rice, cucumber, mango (our avocados needed a couple of days to be tender enough) and some turkey spam and wasabidized mayonnaise.
The nori I bought were all small sheets so I that was an added brain teaser. I didn’t know if miniature sushi rolls with 3 inch nori sheets was possible, normal sized sushi rolls seemed tedious enough so I decided to pin my hopes on the stickiness of Japanese rice to stick the nori sheets I patched in place together.
I think it’s something you can figure out for yourself along the way but I found this cute illustrated tutorial for you!
The family had nice suggestions. Dad says bigger mango chunks. My sister says next time I should try substituting rice with spam. Perfect sense.
Little did I know this was to be your last duty of friendship to me. You should know it occupies one whole wall in my room supposedly (you know, before it even got to me how long med school will actually take) to greet me a good morning, but now it is a constant reminder for me to value my friends, keep Al and Kate and I together now that you’re - pause for effect — gone and tells me to keep on going and not give up on my dreams and never settle for anything less than we deserve.
But you of all people know that’s BS, especially coming from me. An aries does like a good trophy. We miss you, Fay! Don’t mess up med school kay we need our free general check-ups and consultations.
Q:why do you keep your hair that short?
for safer travel lol
Not quite finished but happy enough that my patience got it this far. haha. I’ve been quite into Italian architecture lately. Much influence on the books I’ve been reading, I think. Even my current read is set in a fictional city of Camorr which I think probably is medieval Italy because of the canals and the capas and the garristas and the contrarequiallas and their sharks! Yeah!
Okay. Seem to be having a bit too much fun with that. I just want something pretty up the top of my blog that’s all. haha.
