i enjoy the weekends freakin’ more than ever now for some reason. maybe it’s because it the only time you can sleep for how ever long you want. it’s the only time were you can party the night before, and don’t have to worry about getting very tired during work the next morning. and it’s the only time were you can cruise down places (i.e. SD) and kick it with the homies.
i’m about to roll down and go to rex’ shindig/bbq. he said he cooking everything, so it should be a bomb-diggity lounge scene. daaaang, he’s twent-five… time has gone by so fast after twenty-one. well at least he can rent cars haha.
i have had my emerald green, toyota 98 camry LE for about five years. since it is the almost the end of the year, and the fact that most great deals on cars occur during the holidays—it was time to trade it back in. the day was saturday afternoon…supposedly at norwalk toyota, where we got it at. so i woke up after gallivanting with G, dean, jeff, ed, vic, and grumpy…i mean jevon =p (look smilie). we went to hermosa beach btw; patrick’s was the bar/club/spot were we all got faded haha. anyways, i was suppose to go see some all-star bball at banning HS….but i guess i hit snooze or the off-button at 9:30am, and just didn’t wake up till 11am—which was tip-off already.
so i called my moms on the cellie and just asked what the game plan is. i said, “hey ma”…she replied, “watup?!” haha. while still “waking up” i really don’t know what she was saying. then i asked her what time we meeting up at norwalk, and she replied with something along the lines of meeting up at VANNUYS?! daaaaamn, that’s a lot of area codes to travel. instead of being a friggin’ 15–20 minute drive, it became a 40–50 minute one. that meant more mileage to add to the 2,000 miles i already have over 60k; which is more money to pay the dealers—great one ma =\
meanwhile, i go to the auto mall up in the valley (van nuys blvd.). i was going into the trading-in thing to get either a 2002 camry or accord. i was diggin’ the 2002 accord because of its low-profile rather than the camry’s bulky body/chassis. so we met up with the toyota dealer, and asked directly for the 2002 camrys; she led us to the lot. $24k+ for the SE—which looked pretty cool. however, for some reason, i wanted something that looks like a car and not a breed between a car and a minivan.
at miller honda, we asked for the 2002 accord… freakin’ dealer said that they don’t have anymore—too bad for me =p so he pointed to the freakin’ 2003 accord EX. it was kinda what i was looking for—a silver paint with a sun/moon-roof. when we opened the door, guess what… leather seats with a 6‑CD changer bling bling! …from that moment on, i was sold; it was just the matter of my mom and aunt wanting to get it.
after hours and hours of bargaining, and doing paper-work… our 3pm-8pm car trade-in escapade was finally over. here’s my NEW ride:
from my mind to yours… sometimes when the dealer lies about not having anymore of a particular car batch, it works in your favor haha =p
ahhhh…i had work for all five days this week?! boooyah! yah, it sounds lame, someone who is exd to work you might ask? actually, your right. i am exd. the bottom line is: money is money. what i earned this past week will go towards rent for next month. this will let me not to have to ask my mom for mula since she paid enough already for the past months (i.e. class, utility, and rent).
it’s a great experience to work in a temporary staffing agency (for now, that is). you always get to meet different people. a particular job might last an hour (or more)…or go for long as a month (or more). you get to take in other people experience and skills, and their story on how they chose to work for a particular company. cool thang. people are nice (most of the times), and they treat you like a regular colleague. for example, my first job was with a law firm (doing data entry of course), for lunch…they offered to treat me to some expensive italian place. however, i had to turn the offer down because i was sooo freaking tired from the night before and wanted to go home and chill.
trying to go to bed early, and waking up early in the morning is a new culture for me. man, i can kinda relate to my roomies now (kinda). for some reason, when i sleep more hours (4–5) going to work compared to going to class (2–4) i still get so freakin’ tired at work than in school—what gives?! i think it might be a psyche thing. cause you are exd to get out from an hour, or 1.5 hour, class to see and kick it with friends at the courtyard/terrace/zotngo. so there’s that extra juice to keep you up. but at work, it’s just that you know you are going to be in there for a long time, and just can’t wait to go home and take a nap. so you are feeling sleepy already while thinking about it. or is it just me?
anyways, congratulations to SigEp football for a fall 2002 season. those were some exciting games this past week—but it was so freakin’ cold and ish. everyone was just twitching from the night’s freezin’ grip. all were just waiting to see the markers moved for yardage, or a first down, because that means they get to walk and do something to heat themselves up. but yah…great games—great season.
from my mind to yours… your money and you don’t even know it!
