Professor:I once had a student who's name is Paula but wanted to be called "Sydney" instead. So, if you have a nickname and want to be called as that, let me know. Okay I'll call roll call now... Paula Alba?
Professor:Just Paula? Not Sydney?
Me:Well, you can call me princess.
Professor starts writing a side note.
Me:Umm... I'm kidding!
Professor:I take these nicknames very seriously. One time, this girl got stuck with the nick name "Tinkerbell" for 2 semesters. I don't mess with these kind of things, princess.
Day Twenty-Nine: The most recent dream you remember in detail
The most detailed is this one dream with this yacht… That’s all I can really say lol
One night, I had a dream that I was smoking 10 joints in a row and I was just smoking a lot of if and these people around me were kinda sad and I was like “you should have some of this” but I never gave them any and kept smoking it…
I was at this shopping area in Europe and I got hostaged :( The bad people were really crazy and they were letting people go but right before they could reach the other side—the safe side—they would shoot them mercilessly. And then they were gonna let me go and so I started walking and right before I reach the other side, I woke up and I don’t know what happened :/
So tonight, I was at my friend’s house and we were having some DEEP conversation (in a not-so-DEEP way) and I brought up one of my cardinal rules. I forgot some of them but after looking up what they are again, I realized why I made them a cardinal rule.
Cardinal rule #1: The Golden Rule.
This made it as number 1 because I live by this rule. You like me, I like you too. You don’t like me, then die bitch! Jk But yes. I made this a rule because of my sister. I noticed that I get so angry whenever someone tries to start something with her. And I do treat them like shit because they don’t deserve to be treated with respect. This rule is just saying that my actions are just a reflection of how you treat me and the people that I love.
Cardinal rule #2: Always carry your phone, your wallet, and your keys.
This rule might sound ridiculous, but it is up there for a fucking reason. Phone. I was meeting up with someone but I left my phone at home. The person I was supposed to meet got PISSED.OFF. and then my parents were trying to reach me to go to dinner and they got annoyed because we ended up hitting traffic. Wallet. I came to school one day and I forgot my wallet. I was at school from 9:30 in the morning until 8 at night. No breakfast. No wallet = no cash, no credit card, not even change that you can use to get yourself a bag of peanuts from the vending machine with. Ridiculous. I left my accounting class 30 minutes early because I was too hungry. Keys. Have you ever been locked out of your house? All throughout high school I would forget my keys to my house. I had to stay out in the cold for 3 hours and wait for someone to come home and open the door. Well, like 2 hours and I got homework done but I still got sick so no bueno!
Cardinal rule #3: Always look your best.
It’s kind of stupid to put this rule up, but better-looking people get better treatment. It’s not really a better-looking issue but a confidence issue. When you look your best is when you have the most confidence and confidence radiates positive energy, and that’s how you charm people. This rule was added because on my way to my friend’s house last year, I stopped by Starbucks and this guy from Estonia (mothafucka, he’s from Estonia! Do you know anyone from Estonia?! I actually know this guy Mike, whom I had a little chat with at Starbucks too, who is from Estonia too and he said I could visit him and he has a house in Poland/Norway too haha) bought me coffee because he said I was beautiful. I think it’s about time I start to follow this rule again.
Cardinal rule #4: Don’t invest your time with someone who is investing his time on someone else.
It’s self-explanatory. It made the list because, well, it’s self-explanatory why it made the list and it’s too personal to put out there.
Cardinal rule #5: Don’t lie if your relationship with someone depends on it.
This rule made it because I lied so many times in my past and it created nothing but problems and, may I add, misery. Like Jay Z said, he’s “got 99 problems and a bitch ain’t one” because they’re all because of lies. It’s been officially established around mid-November, so if I met you after that time, I can whole-heartedly say that I haven’t lied to you. Lies are silly. Lies only create bigger lies. Lies create unnecessary drama. Lies ARE unnecessary drama. And truthfully, lies are disrespectful. So essentially, I really deserved to go through drama and find out cardinal rule #4 for my self because of cardinal rule #1.
Day Twenty-Five: Your favorite flavor of ice cream
Rocky road, cookies ‘n cream, Pistachio, Ben & Jerry’s Turtle Soup. I really like ice cream. It doesn’t matter what the flavor its, as long as it’s not Ube or Macapuno, which are my dad’s favorites, i’d eat it. Oh I don’t like cookie dough either :/
“Boys are like purses. You’re always gonna have that one boy that you’re always comfortable with and you know you’ll always kind of like. That’s your purse that you wear everywhere. Then you have that gorgeous bag that you want everyone to see you with but the gorgeous bag is usually an asshole or costs a lot of money. Then you have those other purses that you really like but you really don’t want to be seen with”—lauren conrad
Daddy: thank you, what did you get me for my birthday?
Me: a kiss…
Daddy: A kiss? what am I gonna do with that?
Me: i don’t know :/
Happy birthday, Mr. Daddy! You’re always busy and always stressed out, but it’s because you work hard for us. Without you, I’d have to work 100 times harder so thank you for your sacrifices. I wuv you :)
