I got my quiz back


I got my quiz back yesterday, and I got another 8 out of 10. This is not bad, considering that I was up until 1:30 that night chatting online, didn't go to sleep until 2 and I had to wake up at 6:30.

Last night, I went to Hunan Garden in Palo Alto for dinner. The food was awesomely yummy, and our group polished off 3 Peking Ducks, along with a large assortment of other entrees.

I'm feeling pretty horrible right now, as I work and go to school. I feel as if I cannot devote enough time to both of them. I do not think people realize just how much time school takes up, and even with only 8 units, it's still a pretty large chunk of time for homework and studying.
Work is not nearly as challenging as school, but it's still a big part of my life.

Tami called me out of the blue today, just to say hello and see how things are. She asked me why I didn't move back home after I got laid off, or why I've been hard to reach as of late. (Ans: Because living at home would be tough, and my cell phone gets crappy reception). It's always nice to get an phone call from old friends.

I was watching this past Wednesday's episode of Smallville, and there was one line in particular that really resonated within me.

Lana: "If you don't open up to the people who love you, you'll always be alone. I can't believe you want to spend your life like that."

Clark:"I may not have a choice."

Lana: "You always have a choice."

I have always had problems opening up to people. I don't quite know where it stems from. I guess I'm afraid that if they knew the real me, if they knew who I really was, they wouldn't like me anymore or even hate me. I've only been myself with the few people I am close with, but even then, it doesn't always work out. I guess in this way, I am like Clark...
