A lil' closer to home but not really
The 2008 Olympics torch came through SF today. Lining both sides of the Embarcadero were protesters as well as supporters of the event. It was quite exciting to be right where the action was until the re-route happened. Big bummer. Aside from heckling the crowd to show some protesting spirit (I was hoping for slight disarray, so I could snap pictures - thoughtful indeed), I actually managed to get a lot of work done today. So sure my apartment looks like its been hit by a tornado, I vow to take a break tonight and do nothing.
I have to share this with you because it's super funny (disclaimer: for someone as easily amused as I am). When asked how the torch is transported, my coworker and friend Tanner said, "I dunno. FedEx?" You get the joke. If not, click here> here> or here>
More questions: my Auntie Christine asked the other day, when we were talking about social standards in Asia, if I would be opposed to getting a nose job, and I paused for a second before saying, "I'm not against plastic surgery by any means, but I like imperfection." And as I said it, I realized how I honestly do. If it weren't for the bf, there'd be a lot more things I'd hate about myself, nose included. Through a lot of positive reinforcement over the years, the same kind he grew up with, I managed to actually somewhat like who I am. And that's the perfect reminder of why I'm with him**
