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.

Death Cab For Cutie

Running out of time.

Bonded with boardies.

Had a lot of fun.

Death Cab is great live.

Everything was so chill.

I love being back at UCSB. Home away from home forfreakingsure.

A little bit ago I met the janitor that comes clean the ASPB Office. He’s pretty nice! (Haha, yeah I’m chillin’ in here ‘cus Nefi is asleep already)

Hopefully I can help Rona out! She’s in a tough situation atm.

Life is great … for now.

Oh, got sadish over something silly earlier… well I’m still sad. Family related. Argh. Whatevah.

The line-up for Extravaganza 2008 is as follows:

Nas.

Hellogoodbye.

Saosin.

Blue Scholars.

I’m so glad to say that all the booking is DONE! (: The huge poster that fell from Storke Plaza today was nothing short of amazingggg!

On another, separate note I joined Command Shift 3 a while back… well not that long ago, but a bit ago. And I’ve started to get ratings~ Oh, exciting. The summary of my site is here. Thanks to Jon Tan for letting me know about Command Shift 3.

Just got back from math midterm. I think it went well except for the last problem… ugh. UGH! Why!? If it is wrong (which I’m pretty sure it is) then the highest I can get is a B on the midterm. Talk about depressing. Whatever, I’m over it! (Ok not really, eh.)

Day 2 (or 3?) of sadness. I wonder if I should keep a mood journal of some sort. So exhausted.

Reminder to self: Check on PC to see if I own song Torn by Natalie Imbruglia. (:

Hieroglyphics

Dear ASPB Boardies,

The show tonight was really fun! Call time was much too early, but because of that we all ate Woodstock’s pizza together. Some good conversations, most definitely. And also lots of drama going on! What with spring elections and deciding if we’re still going to be on board next year and if so what positions we’re running for. I totally respect the hush-hush from you McSweeney. However, since Carissa isn’t going to apply for Films Coordinator I want to apply. Other positions I want to apply for I’m not going to say, but that’s OK.

Mm, sorry I left early, but school night after all! I have to wake up at 7am tomorrow morning unfortunately. I hope you guys have fun at retreat this weekend!

Hirashiki and I are going to Bamboozle Left this weekend, though. And Carissa has another retreat so not all of us will be there. Hopefully come Monday meeting there will be some repetition as to what went down at all the meetings this weekend!

Never have I felt more comfortable or as close to you guys.

Boardie love,
Bri

P.S. Sorry for bad entry. Focusing on watching a movie (that I hate).
