Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem is a latin phrase from Horse's poem, and it is usually translated as " Sieze the day". There are also other translations fromthe bible, " If not now, when?"

I strongly believe when one is presented with unexpected opportunity, one should take it and make the best out of it. For example, the verse from Ecclesiaste 9:9 "
Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun."

I would like to be the sponge, a very large one, soak up and learn everything I can. Today, I pledge to myself, I will take every opportunity I can, and not waste any time. I will do it, even if the people around me won't.

  • I will go to the gym, and enjoy yoga, running, swimming, zumba... etc
  • I will be fit!!
  • I will walk outside and take pictures, print the ones i like and hang them up in my house. Maybe make some post cards while I am at it.
  • I will learn all the Utah mom's baking recipe
  • I will go salsa dance when Tyffani invites me
  • I will laugh so hard till i cry
  • I will learn all the language i can
  • I will read till my eyes fall out
  • I will travel the world, eat yummy food.
  • I will go to all the concerts, symphany, musicals, plays, dance productions and etc
  • I will take off my clothes and jump in the ocean like I did at Barcelona.
  • I will take every opportunity and do things I have never done before, even if i suck at it, or no one else wants too do them with me. I will do them myself, and too bad for them..
  • I will not waste another minute of my life not trying something because no on else wants to try them with me.
  • I will, I will, I WILL, and I CAN~!!

I've done it before, why did I ever stop doing these things that I like? I will pick it up again, and enjoy life.

I miss Cindy Ford

I have a friend named Cindy Ford, who always takes on any dares. If you dare her to do something, she will never fail you. Cindy is caring, loving, funny, and has a tender soul, and she is currently teaching English in Annyong, Korea. She has a an interesting blog... click on the pic below... check her blog out.

Cindy and I met for the first time in a French study abroad orientation. I guess she was good friends with the director, Dr. Lee... and she just says random stuff and stare at him with her huge blue eyes. I seriously thought this woman can kill me with her thumb if she really wants to. I thought she was way ganstah.... Then we were in Paris together, and she seemed pretty normal.

I just love cindy, she's so nice and easy going. She likes sushi, and she's not afraid to try asian food. I think she probably eats more weird asian food than i would ever eat, since she's in Korea now. Wonder if she'd eat live squid.


I just want to tell you how much I appreciate you to be my friend and accept my weirdness. Thank you for going to London with me, we had some good time with the giant pair of testicle at Kingscross Station. Thank you for eating chinese food with me, and thank you for listening and understanding when i vent. Thank you for flying out to LA and be my bridesmaid, it means the world to me to have a friend like you.


your fav Jenn

Ferb Attack!

For those of you knew my little pets, Phineas and Ferb ( they are dwarf hamsters). They were separated couple months ago, cuz they got in a fight, and Phineas decide to bite Ferbs butt off. Anyway, since then they have live peacefully in their separate cages, with their own amenities. Running wheels, food, water, igloo house, and a sand bath tub. Having 2 cages for 2 different hamsters seems a little space wasting. So i decide to put Phineas a Ferb together again, hoping they'll forget the loath they have towards each other.

I put Phineas in Ferbs cage, and P just sniffed around. Ferb came out from the pile of the purple pee absorbing stuff, saw phineas.... and then Ferb charged at Phineas, got on top of him, and probably bit him too. I quickly separate them again.... i guess they still hate each other. 2 cage is good for now... never put 2 hamster together again. I don't want a hamster fight pit in my own home.
