I finally heard about UCSF.

I got waitlisted for them too. ARGH!

At least I didn't get rejected, but according to their letter, people from the waitlist won't start getting notifications until mid-July for UCSF. In Hawai'i, people will start being re-evaluated as early as April.

I'm now wondering how I'm going to do this. If I end up getting accepted at Hawai'i, but then I get a call from UCSF saying that they're willing to take me, would I just quit and go back to SF? It's all very confusing...

But I won't have to worry about that for a while anyway *sigh*...

Wish me luck, and hope I don't go crazy in the meantime!

One way to keep my mind off of UCSF...

So I'm supposed to find out about whether UCSF has accepted me or not for pharmacy school by the end of March.

It's March 27, and three or four more days to wait. Needless to say, I'm tearing my hair out and going crazy with waiting.

Thank the goddess that my boss for my independent contractor job showed me this website of (naked, mostly gay) men and their awfully decorated abodes while they're in the midst of uh...pleasure. (Needless to say, this is WAY NSFW, so you shouldn't be looking at this at work, or with any children or small furry animals about or they'll be traumatized for life--YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED) To make things even better, there's really hilariously bitchy critiques of the domiciles, and the people who're being pictured, done by mostly queer men (and one dyke).

It's a great way to distract myself from why I haven't received that damn decision letter yet (and almost makes me wanna go to my former...uh, friends' houses and take pictures, just as a way of gaining revenge on them...).

This is why I love being queer--only queers can look at (bad) porn and make fun of the fucking decor...!

Just because it was cute...

I blame Ernie and 8asians for turning me on to this website....

One down, one to go!

So I just found out that I made alternate for University of Hawaii-Hilo pharmacy school. It's not a bad thing, but I guess I didn't do as well in the interview that I thought I did. But now I have to wait to see if I'll get in, and that can be as late as the first week of class. Yikes.

At least I'm still waiting for UCSF, and now I'm hoping that I am the one out of 122. (I hope I hope I hope I hope I hope).

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Thanks to everybody who sent me birthday wishes...I feel very blessed and honored to have such awesome friends and family. :)

It was a very strange, but good day. Woke up with a weird tension headache that went away after I took some meds.

The hospital where I work on Fridays had a fire and we were evacuated. After the fire, my computer was acting up and for some reason kept on punching in the number 8, so of course I took that as a sign and bought a lottery ticket. I didn't tell my coworkers about my birthday, but they found out and gave me a card and some candy totally impromptu, so that was a nice little surprise.

The husband left me a sweet voicemail wishing me Happy Birthday and decided to give me Duel Love as a belated birthday present (I actually blogged about the game here).

After crashing after work, I went to hang out with some friends and have dinner and karaoke at Playground, and noticed that a show was filming there. My friends and I didn't think anything of it, since we figured we wouldn't be filmed, until a cameraman barges in on us while I was singing Spandau Ballet's "True," and he ends up filming me and my friends singing! Then one of the other people filming asked us to do a toast for the cameraman--and considering one of our friends there was underage, we gave her a glass of water and did the toast, just in case people wonder... So I guess I'm going to be on TV. Again. The show's called Check Please!, and it'll be featured sometime in April (I'm guessing). Thank God I'm used to knowing what to do for TV cameras...

So overall, it was a very interesting and fun birthday--and reminded me that I have some great friends and family. Thanks. :)

Happy birthday to me....

That's all :)

Not doing much this year since I'm still waiting for my (I hope) acceptance letters for UCSF and Hawaii, but if you wanna send me presents or wanna get together that's cool...

or if SOMEONE would join her GirlFriend from LA next weekend to hang out with me for shabu shabu with Ernie...

(you know who you are, and yes I'm calling you out!) :D

How do you say...?

So I'm back at work yesterday (sigh) when one of the techs comes in frantic, asking us, "How do you say, 'hold your breath' in Tagalog?"

My coworker and I look at each other (we're both 2nd generation Fil Am, but I don't know Tagalog and she barely speaks it), look back at him, and say, "We have no idea." We end up calling different people and get different answers while the tech rushes out, and calls his sister.

He comes back in, and says, "I think she misunderstood me. She said, 'Hawak ang susu mo!'"

My coworker and I look at each other confused, look at him, and we all start laughing hysterically.

"Yup, she misunderstood you," we both say.

She had said, "Hold your breasts!"

Ok, I'm going to bed...
