Hey y'all.
I'm Jasmine, and I'd love to travel the world, ride my bike in the woods, and jog along the beach. Hawaii will be my future home. Or Canada.

Intense practice sessions the past 2 weeks. We basically lived in he chapel lol. It was filled with food, people, laughter, and even tears. But I’m so glad everything happened, even the mistakes that we did. This past 2 weeks has shown me what’s important in my life. I can’t wait for the centennial celebration :)

I never really understood why my mom kept my first notebook that I wrote 10 years ago (when I first came to America) but after reading it few minutes ago, I’m quite thankful that she did. 
My grammar has definitely improved a lot, but anyways.
I’m just glad that you were my first friend here and I’m glad that you approached me even though I couldn’t speak English that well. I was the most awkward child ever, but you still came up to me and you taught me to catch butterflies and to be free. It was your 9th year death anniversary last week, and everyone that knew you still remember you, because you were very precious and you have touched all of our lives. 
Rest in peace Sandra, and thank you for being such a close friend to me.

So while my friend fixes her stuffs, I’m here reading Tumblr posts from way back (aka October 2010, when I started #lifeandotherstuffs) and I’m just laughing at myself.

It’s actually really funny bc I can remember all those days lolol.

My tolerance level is way too high.

Wait for me where the world begins.”

So I’m quitting my school orchestra next year to give space for this CNA program near my CC, and I thought my course load for next school year would be a little easier, but I sorta just realized how much of an over load it is:

-English IV Dual Enrollment
-Government Dual Enrollment I and II
-Biology Dual Enrollment (or AP, depends)
-AB Calculus
-AP Stats
-CNA (second semester, early double release first semester)

I think the double early release might give me some time to work on stuffs! If I can do Eco first semester, that’d be so much better.

I miss my friend like we’d literally chat for hours after hours and there’d be no awkward silence or anything, and we could vent to each other but not all the time bc that’s very annoying, but we’d listen to each other and I’d help him out with his relationship stuffs and we’d give other song recommendations and yeah…

But life happened and I’d still chat with him at school, but people are always on the way, and he works whenever I’m free, and I’m doing other things when he’s free, and I just miss my friend a lot…

Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailing

Somewhere beyond the sea
[He’s] there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to [his] arms
I’d go sailing

It’s far beyond the stars
It’s near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon

We’ll meet beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just as before
Happy we’ll be beyond the sea
And never again I’ll go sailing

I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon
We’ll meet (I know we’ll meet) beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just as before
Happy we’ll be beyond the sea
And never again I’ll go sailing

No more sailing
So long sailing
Bye, bye sailing…

I guess I’ll update and what not.

I’ll be getting my letterman in the summer, but that’s not really important, I guess.
We got 2 new cars bc the other one got total wrecked, and we were able to pay for a cheaper price for the other car compared to the past one.
I’m quitting school orchestra. It’s not the same anymore. I guess we sounded nice, but the teacher puts so much emphasis on reputation rather than passion.
I’m still in orchestra, I’ll probably elaborate more on this too when the right time comes.
It’s been really hectic, especially on weekends. We had to drive to Humble every Saturday, and I guess I’ll update more on this (hopefully) by the end of summer.
I’ve been pretty good with keeping up with my diary, compared to last semester.
Kuya Jel moved to Philippines.
I’m becoming an organist trainee for Church.

So yeah, I sorta learned these past few days that you should let go of the things that are not good for you. For ex, school orchestra got in the way of everything, and my teacher went a little hard on the upperclassmen (she’s new), and I don’t need that in my life, especially at this point. So I’m letting it go.

Few nights ago, I had a nightmare that my friend was still alive, and it gave me chills and goosebumps.

Annnnd apparently, my internal clock is messed up, and They told me that I’m an insomniac. I don’t believe it.

10 April 2014.

I know people associate being awake at night with being lazy, but honestly, I really love being awake at such a late hour because everyone is asleep and everything is quiet and peaceful.

My friend tells me I’m leaving her in dust after ditching her for another group on this physics project, pero like, I’m the one who did 99% of the work for the roller coaster project last six weeks and she always copies off of my and everyone else’s paper for the physics ws.

Whatever :p

~6 or 7 years ago, while prepping for the Bible Quiz~
Kuya Ron: So how do you know if you actually understood what was sung during the hymn singing?
Me: If you cry? That’s what everyone does.
Kuya Ron: No, anyone can cry. If you do the things that you sang in your everyday life, it means that you actually understood the hymn.

~5 years ago after a CWS Final Thanksgiving Practice~
Someone: Omg, I cried.
Someone else: Me too? (To everyone else) Did y’all cry?
Me: Just because you cried doesn’t really mean anything.

~Today for our Holy Supper General Practice~
Choir Directress: A minister stressed to us the importance of singing from our hearts. Now, he told us that to sing from our hearts, does it necessarily mean to cry? No, because anyone can cry. Because the same person who cried can be the first to fall asleep during the lesson. Because the same person who cried can be the first one to disobey God’s commands as soon as he or she walks out this door. And so, if we do the things that we sang in these hymns in our lives, it means that we are singing from our hearts.

Seriously, why the hell would you text while driving?
That can wait. I don’t want anyone risking their lives all because of someone’s careless driving. But for real, I CANNOT tolerate that bs.
And if you tell me to not overreact, then f you. I’ve lost my first friend in my elementary school all because of someone’s stupidity, and I for sure hell would not want the same to happen to anyone else.
