It’s been a pretty exciting/hectic/expensive time o’ the year. We’ve been going out to dinner a lot lately. But good stuff. (: Geez, I love my family so much. They’re so amazingly funny! I love it~

Saturday night I went to a Nightwish concert. ZOMGZ. Epic epic epic! And what do you know? Sonata Arctica opened. Freaking aaaamazing! But I definitely miss Tarja. ): New vocalist girly can’t go as high as Tarja could, and her voice is a little bit more pitchy. Blah and they didn’t perform Planet Hell or Nemo, but they still played a ton of great songs~!! (: Loved it so much. Rona and I went together. YAYYY.

Sunday we went to the LA County Fair!! AHHH Mom and I got on this bungee jumping-like ride. Lmao, you had to sign this waiver if in case anything happens to you and ugh the ride was $25 per person. Like forreal. But anyway, it was so much fun!! And they have a microphone on the ride so people down below can hear you screaming. Everyone said something funny so I had to, too. I yelled out, “I love you Jesus!” pretending to be all fuhreaking scared. People laughed. (: Goal accomplished. And they also record you! Hahaha… we got the DVD. It’s pretty hilarious.

There was also a concert there… Jaguares. Spanish rock. It was aites. There were *so* many people… it was a bit overwhelming! And everyone was so loud and way into it. I had fun, though!

UGH… I’m watching the news right now. =\ Stocks plummeted today. DOW down by 500 points! The stocks went down so badly… it hasn’t gone down as badly since 9/11. An international bank went bankrupt today! I feel honestly sad for my country’s economy. Thousands of those bank employees have lost their jobs, too. It’s so awful how from one day to the other things changed so badly. Merrill Lynch though merged with Bank of America though so that bank is safe.

Imagine whoever had huge investments into Lehmann… they’re now bankrupt, too. All your stocks, and all the money invested – gone. Their stock is worth 21 cents now… =\

I wish I knew more about business and financial matters. I want to be a worldly person, whatever that means… There is life outside my day to day insignificant life. And I want the bigger picture. Some times I want to get involved in politics, too. Ah, dream big. But the problem with that is that I’d feel I’m not making a big impact.

There’s change and impact in helping a person at a time, too. A helping profession. That’s my future.

Lalala. AHHHH I love my family. And I can’t wait for the school year to start again! (: Hahaha I say this now, but once the year starts I’m going to be stressed and so over it. Haha.
