i voted in my first election yesterday. it was for the california primaries. and as lame as it sounds, it was exhilarating. i love the democratic process. seriously, more people should vote.

i'm also thrilled that most of the people that i voted for ended up winning. the most prominent victory went to phil angelides.

say what?

i thoroughly enjoy a good conversation. that's the point of socializing and meeting new people, right? that's why networking sites are so popular, because people really like talking to others and opening themselves up to new individuals that they haven't met before. it's fun.

for all of you who have added me to your friends list, i thank you for acknowledging me. and for those who have taken the effort to actually converse with me, you're awesome. but for those who simply added me and have never taken the initiative to get to know me...then what was the point? am i just another digit to make your friends list look more populated? you added me, so why don't you introduce yourself? do you think it's my responsibility to talk to you first?

i'll talk to those that read what i post and respond because i know that they find me at least somewhat interesting. that's why, in turn, i'll reply back because then we might have some things in common. if you don't care, then why did you add me?

life is not a popularity contest. people aren't going to think poorly of you if you don't have tons of people on your friends list. and even if they do, that just means they're not worth your time.

undermining words

i've had enough of how everything on the news is a "tragedy." you know what I'm talking about? whenever someone's child drowns in a pool (incidentally, pools are 500 times as likely to kill you as a gun, and this is without even being designed to!) it's a tragedy. it isn't. it's an accident. September 11th was a tragedy!

calling everything a tragedy devalues the word. the same goes for "love" and "hero." when you can feel LOVE for chocolate milk and people just doing their jobs are HEROES, how can anything have the right shade of meaning attached to it?

"I love you."

"Really? Well, I love cheesecake too!"

washington d.c.

wow, it's been a while since i've written.

i just woke up actually. but, i get the house all to myself today since my mum is out of town and she won't get home until very late in the evening.

i've been nominated to go to washington d.c. to represent my school and my community in the National Young Leaders Conference. as it says in my nomination letter: "less than 1% of all high-achieving high school students are presented with this opportunity, and many alumni of the program report that it is a life changing experience." i'll get to meet with high-ranking government officials, leaders from congress, the executive branch, the national news media, and the diplomatic corps. i'll also get to stay in a nice hotel for 10 days, tour monuments and museums, participate in debates and model congress, etc.

i can't even articulate how excited i am to go. but for now, i'm still focusing on earning some sponsorships since it'll cost about $3,000 for me to attend.

return of the henri

thank you, Nathan, for bringing back phusebox. i know it's a lot of hard work and we all truly appreciate it.

so i'm finally on winter break. it's fantastic because i get to sleep in until 3 in the afternoon. plus, there have been late night parties & new years eve should be incredible.

christmas was fantastic and i am very pleased with my presents. i got my shopping done last minute, as usual, but thoroughly went through the process to make sure that my gifts pleased their recipients.

i hope everyone else had a good holiday.
