Hello hello hello!
Let’s talk alcohol.
So, are you a beer person or a cocktail person?
I’m a give-me-any-alcohol person. Yes.
Thanks to Oregon and very awesome friends, I got to taste an awesome selection of good beers and cocktails other than screwdrivers and cosmopolitans.
As far as wine goes, I used to hate it because I thought it was a fancy-people drink. But if you were to ask my opinion now, I’d say drink it and drink more of it. Wine is awesome and delicious. Plus, it makes you feel fancy.
Well, I never found one. So I just decided to work as a bartender myself.
↑Alpha Korean Gastropub, 42-24 Bell Blvd, Bayside, NY
This is a pretty chill bar, and I’m not just saying that because I work there.
It’s definitely not a dive bar but a casual place where you can enjoy good food and drinks with good friends.
They serve Korean fusion pub/bar food on top of the typical bar snacks. But they’re pretty serious about their dinner menu, too. If you’re looking for some hearty Korean stew, they’ve definitely got ’em here.
Um… It feels like I’m advertising… I’m just saying, I’d come here even on my off days. Really.
They’ve got a good selection of craft beers, which is awesome. In fact, the manger’s actually actively trying to get rid of Coors.
Also, they have two giant screens to watch the games plus two more not-so-giant screens to watch more games. hehe
On top of it all, you’ll have a really nice wait staff to tend however big or small your group might be.
Anyways, you get the picture, right? Hopefully?
Well, I guess my point is, I’ll be your bartender at a really chill place.
So come and find out if you’re a beer person, a cocktail person, or a wine person, OR a give-me-any-alcohol person. 😉

Being a believer of “If you aren’t happy now, you won’t be happy later,” I’m always seeking for happiness.
When faced with making a decision, naturally I think of which choice would deliver most happiness.
As of late, however, this belief hasn’t been helping me solidify on a decision.
So while I’m struggling to make the “proper” choice, I met someone.
This person mentioned along the line of, “at certain point, I started to make decisions not by what makes me happy but what would leave me with least regret.”
It’s amazing how a change in perspective can twist the whole process 180 degrees.
I was completely blown away by this person’s insight.
So tonight, I’m going to try to orient my thoughts in a different angle of perspective.
But for this very moment, I think I’ll just breathe.

I am stronger than I believe myself to be.
I am better than I think myself to be.
I am smarter than I present myself to be.
I am more beautiful than I see myself to be.
I am better than I reflect myself to be.
A great human being.

I really should be updating my blog, or diary, more often than I do.
Not because it’s a chore but because I actually like pouring my heart out on this electric magical place.
But lately I’ve been too sad, too stressed; my mind wandered into a void where I’d forgotten what it is like to be me.
Buts and buts and buts, no more buts.
I’ll be okay.
And I’ll come back as myself.
So please wait for me a little longer my beloved, whoever you are.

I wrote an entry about my past, present and future.
But I deleted it.
cheers to an emo night!

My blog, this blog, definitely has no pattern or a specific topic of discussion as I initially intended it to have.
I wanted it to be all the sweet things in my life (mainly baking and music) but no. I’m officially making it my diary. It’ll be all about my random rants and crazies along with the occasional sweet perspectives.
Bitter, do I sound?
I am frustrated because I was lying in the bed for two hours trying to sleep. Not once was I even close to feeling sleepy!!
I only had two, mere TWO 12-oz cups of coffee.
I love it when caffeine decides to kick in when I absolutely don’t care for it, at all.
So, here I am, sitting in the middle of my bed in complete absence of light, pounding on my wee little pink netbook keyboard, obsessing over the possible relationship between the two cups of coffee and sleep.
Maybe it’s not the undesirable relationship between coffee and sleep, maybe it’s just the simple fact that I have too much crap in my mind.
I might as well just get it out.
1. I have a problem with phone calls. I get slight anxiety from phone calls. I don’t know why. I hate talking on the phone. I’m very awkward over the phone. I don’t know why. I don’t really like texting that much either. But don’t get me wrong, I love having good conversations with people, I just don’t like it over the phone. Oh and I hate voicemails also. I rarely check it. I like to use my phone only as a watch, a calendar and an alarm, but that’s about it. My mom thinks I have phone issues–I agree. I’m sure this goes way deeper into psychology of my childhood memories which I don’t seem to remember much of. I want to get over it, but I just don’t know how.
2. I stopped learning. I thought I’d be happy once I was done with school. But it really saddens and scares me at the same time to feel that I’m wasting my brain’s ability. It sounds wrong to “stop” learning. I feel like I’m getting dumber as the days pass by. So I went to Barnes & Noble today. Hahaha As if going to the bookstore would bring me the genius of this world. I felt less nervous about my intelligence at least. Bookstores always empower me in such an ambiguous way, they give me a jolt of energy to always want to pursue for more! Don’t you ever wonder, “I’m fit to do something greater than this…”? I always forget that it’s up to me to direct my life. I must pursue for more.
3. I need a closure. I’m a creature of bad habits when it comes to relationships. I don’t think I’ve ever had a good closure with all the relationships that ended bad. Like a little coward, I always made up excuses to avoid having to talk to them in person (friends, mentors, aunt, cousin… etc). Well. Look what’s happening now. They came to haunt me on a night that I need to sleep the most. What should I do, contact all of them and have very very awkward phone conversations with lots of ugly pauses while having slight anxiety attacks because I hate phone conversations to begin with? :[ Tricky situation, I’d say.
I think the pressure is somewhat gone down now that I’ve ranted about my thoughts. Sadly, I’m still wide awake, more awake that I was 20 minutes ago. Boo caffeine, boo!
