Trying New Things + Beach Trip

I guess a lot happened this week! Jin and I went on a beach trip to Panama City on Friday and got back Saturday night. Wow, it was freaaaaaaaking cold around midnight when we went out onto the beach Friday night... but Saturday was beautiful. Not a speck of cloud in the sky, clear waters, white sand... it was perfect.

Before we left for the beach, I curled my hair with a straightening iron! Turnout? SOO CUTE. Or at least I think, haha.

Anyway, I will update with beach pictures soon. I need to get ready to go work out with my baby, haha. Oh, and it looks like my mom is somewhat interested in him. She invited him for Thanksgiving this Thursday and it looks like he'll join us... oh man...

AU vs UGA. :(

Sucks that I have to compare, but my weekends have been nothing but fun since I met Jin! Friday, Jin and I went to ASF (Alabama Shakespeare Festival... apparently the 11th biggest Shakespeare theater in the world) to watch A Christmas Carol (the story about Scrooge). After watching, we went to get dinner with my brother and cousin, who came down to go watch the AU vs UGA game the day after. After grabbing dinner with Jin's friends and my bro + cousin, we headed back up to Auburn. Jin, Ian (my brother), and Alex (the cousin), pretty much got trashed that night, and I decided to be responsible and stay the designated driver. Yup... then we went to bed around 5am that night, when we were planning to be up and out of the house by 9am for the 11:30 game.

Saturday morning, we did get up, but everyone was too tired to go out. So we ended up leaving around 11 to pick up Jin, then get to the game around 11:45. We missed the kick off and first few minutes of the first quarter, but it was all good. I would've taken my camera to the game, but I hate lugging stuff around the whole time, and figured I could take pics with my phone... and wow, I am amazed at the quality! Here are a few I snapped at the game.

Not bad for a phone huh! hehehe... I should've taken more.

Anyway, then my brother and cousin headed back down to Montgomery after taking a nap. Jin and I ended up going to a friend's birthday party, and it was a bit awkward at first, because most people knew each other, but weren't close. Eventually, after a few people left, things lightened up. Jin was the oldest there, and I was the youngest... and they were calling me hyungsoo nim..................


LOL. I laughed about it the whole night. I don't know if I can get used to be called that! Anyway, I figured Jin would end up drinking a lot, so I only had 2-3 shots early in the night and was gonna call it a night. This guy Eric thought I had to drive back an hour to drive Jin home that night, and was letting me off easy when he found out that I lived in Auburn and everyone decided to make me drink. My body took alcohol very well that night, and after 15 shots and then some, I was all good! I chilled out for about an hour before I drove back home around 4:30.

Sunday, we woke up around noon, and grabbed lunch at a local chinese restaurant to get some jjambbong and kkan poong gee. mmm!!!

Sigh... as much as things have been good and fun, Chris talked to me today, and he seems really heart broken. He says he loves me and is tired of waiting, and told me that he misses me and is really sorry for what he's done in the past. He admitted that he took me for granted but it will change in the future, and that he promises that. Then he reminded me that he never breaks his promises...

awflekjlwkfjawef as much as I was tired of always waiting on him, I feel bad for him now.

Anyway, Jin is actually 25, turning 26 a week before I turn 20. lol. A lot of people think he's around 22-23 though, so I guess it's not bad. Except sometimes, people think I looke 15-17...... wtf. He graduated from here with a degree in Architecture back in 06, then picked up a Master's from UIUC last year. Now he's finishing up his intern thing and studying for the 9 exams he has to take...

Ok I'm rambling about random stuff, so I need to stop blogging before I start talking nonsense. I'll post more pictures soon! haha.

New Guy :)

Chris and I had our talk, and he was super excited to see me. He said all things he could and promised me that things will change, and he will give me more attention and etc etc. He seemed genuine and seemed like he wanted to work things out, telling me things like, our problems aren't as big as some of other people's, and that it could easily be resolved if I gave him another chance. I just left him that night after telling him that I'd like time to think about it (although I've already moved on and picked up a new bf, lol). He dropped me off with tears in his eyes, and I felt pretty bad. Since then, he's been practically begging me to come back and telling me everyday that he misses me and wants to see me. Sigh.

Anyway, aside from that, Jin has been nothing but full of awesome. So far. Hahaha. Anyway, he's been coming up to see me just about everyday, right after work, and leaving late and losing sleep to be at work again at 8am. It's about 45-50min drive to and from, and I feel bad about it. Too bad I can't do anything about it at the moment, since the license is still suspended! Dammit.

So, tonight, he asked me to be his date (before we began dating) to go see this play at the Shakespeare Festival. His work is hosting it, so we'll be there with all his coworkers. Tomorrow is the UGA vs AU game. We're probably going to lose, but Jin and I are gonna be attending, cheering the tigers on... and my brother and cousin (who happens to be a Dawgs fan) will also be there. Anyway, with the new phone and all, Jin and I have been taking loads of pictures! This guy doesn't mind taking pictures, even silly ones, if it makes me happy, or if we're both in it. hahaha, I love it!

Me wearing Jin's shirt... Jin wearing my glasses.

Anyway, last night, he had to attend some young professionals party or something, then asked me if he could come up to see me again. I was fine with it, but I told him I had to study. So he came up shortly after, so he could go to the library with me... while I studied and he worked on his presentation for next week. Where has he been all this time?

Oh yeah, a question for you ladies!
Guess his age, and either post it as a comment or in the chatbox! Hahaha, I'm kinda curious now :p

As of Sunday, Jin and I are official. Yesterday, he bought me the new phone from Tmobz. He also picked one up too so now we have matching phones...

Chris has been messaging me and it looks like he wants to get back together. I'm supposed to meet up with him tonight to talk things through with him and hopefully everything goes alright.

Feeling Better

Not quite. The day after I broke up with Chris, my dad tells me my license is suspended. Great. Apparently the ticket I got sometime last month or so didn't get taken care of, and now I have a big fat $300 fine to pay to the court, on top of the $100 to the Department of Public Safety before I can legally drive again. Wtf. Oh well, it worked out that I broke up with Chris, since now I can request rides from anyone I want without having to worry about Chris getting jealous :p

I should've posted up more pictures from Halloween. I think I will. Not sure when though! To answer some questions...

ladyish said...
hope things work well with this guy (: and I lovee your costume. where'd you get it?

I actually didn't buy it myself. I wasn't planning on dressing up this year either. It just so happens that I went home for my dad's birthday, and my friend told me that her costume was also at home (she's at a different city for school at the moment) and that I should pick it up and wear it. And so I did. Thanks to her, it looks like everyone enjoyed my costume. Hehehe.

Fuz: Dating IS a lot of fun, but I need to start thinking ahead, and think about how Christmas, my birthday, and New Years is fastly approaching! I have plently of candidates, and I think I've found one, but I'm taking my time. Ahh, I think it drives him crazy inside. I love it. LOL

Jess D: I totally agree about not wasting time on someone who's not worth it! Granted, he's not a bad person, but I just couldn't be around him anymore when he wouldn't put aside time and effort into seeing me and for me to do so for him. It just isn't fair, you know? And I understand that I don't need to be tied up with just this guy for the rest of my life. It's not like I'm looking to get married and am desperate :p

Wendy: It's awesome that you're Korean! Are you fluent? Maybe you've had a mix of something far up in your gene pool and you ended up with super gorgeous non-Asian looking features. I really adore your sharp features :p Look at me, I look like mashimaro half the time. Actually, my friends do call me mashimaro but that's a different story...

Anyway, last night, after catching dinner with my friend Sohee and Jin, I decided to go pick up my wii from Chris's. He's been bugging me to grab it ever since we broke up, and I was getting annoyed. I could get the hints that he wanted to talk about it, but fuck that! Hahaha. I don't know, I'm easily suaded sometimes, and it probably wasn't a good idea to talk about it, especially before I took a firm stance on what I wanted. So we drove there, and Chris opens the door for me, and notices that someone in a Jeep is waiting outside. Curious, he asks me whose car it was, and I told him it was a friend's, and that I'm not allowed to drive due to the license issue (I've already explained this to him the day before). He asks who's in the car, and I name them (not like he's ever met them before) and immediately ask for my games. Hahahahah. As soon as I got them, I grabbed them and walked out. I could tell that he wanted to say something, but didn't. He then texts me few minutes later, I guess feeling sorry at the loss of opportunity to talk to me. He said something like "So much for talking... I guess it's better this way anyway. Ill see you around." I felt kind of bad, but I explained that it was him who abruptly suggested breaking up and that my friends were waiting out in the car. He said it looked like I didn't care at all, and blah blah blah.

Actually, I guess Ill have to leave you guys hanging at the moment, because Jin, Sohee and I plus a few are heading to Atlanta again tonight. She just popped out of the shower, so I need to start getting ready. Once I return though, I promise you all a shitload of pictures! Mm!!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!

New beginning

I broke up with Chris. But more on that later.

So, I had a good time this Halloween. I met a lot of new people, and had fun. Pictures to follow!

So yeah, I broke up with Chris today. I don't really feel bad, considering I kinda knew it was going to happen sooner or later. I actually got pretty fed up with all that's been happening lately, and I didn't feel the need to wait around any longer when I could go out and be single, or get other guys who'd treat me better. That's the end of that, I suppose.

I did meet a bunch of guys Friday night. One of them, happens to be really into me haha. I've been hanging out with him a lot lately, and he felt bad that I had a bf and still was pursuing me, but he thought that he would never know unless he tried. So he did, and we're cool, and turns out that I'm single now. He seems really happy about that fact, but seems a little impatient. I want some time to myself before I commit again. Anywho, he's really cool. We're actually heading to Atlanta this weekend, and he's already planning a lot of things ahead. He seems like he wants to travel... haha, oh well.

Oh yeah, the doctor says I'm midly anemic. Looks like I need to start taking care of my body.
