243: what is the last thing you baked?
242: 10 most significant events in your life
- The day I joined a networking marketing company changed my entire life. Although I don’t do much with the company now, I’m more heavily indulged in my books on a daily basis. Self- education is really priceless to me.
- Up until sophomore year of high school, I was a complete loner. Then one of my good friends Cj decided to talk to me that day. I made tons of friends for the rest of my high school years.
- Tumblr.. haha. Trust me, you can learn a lot from any networking site, but I’ve learned much from being on here.
- Talking to my best friend Jan about my sexuality. I finally stopped thinking it was a phase.
- Going to Oklahoma. I saw how much of a big dream everyone was building for themselves in the company.
- Going on the 7 day cruise with my aunty and uncle.
- Watching the video about the educational system in South Korea. I had more of a desire to stay more focused on my language studies.
- Through the training I had in judo, I wasn’t afraid of being myself in public that much.
- Seattle’s Gay Parade 2011. It was just way too much fun as a first event.
- The day I started my 365 project, I was in a tank top and briefs at a cousins house. Who’d knew I’d made it this far.
I’ve noticed that since I don’t follow anyone, then I don’t have the sudden urge to create a new tab for tumblr. That’s one of the pros of unfollowing everyone, since I have more time to focus on studies and reads. The only con I can see in not following anyone, is that I lack the innovation to come up with any writing pieces. For example, I could be reading up to 5- 10 different write- ups and thus be inspired to write in response.
241: what name would your parents have named you if you were the opposite sex? did they have a list of names for you?
Probably Stephanie. And no, I don’t believe they had a list of names lol.
I assumed a majority of you would unfollow, since most of you thought I probably didn’t like your blog. I guess my assumption was right and I’m sort of happy about that. If the numbers reduce more over the next few days, you probably didn’t read the last post I made about unfollowing everyone. Or in this case, this post.
“Clarissa,” he said, “please tell my North American friend why they left their countries .” He nodded his head in the direction of the stage. Three new girls were accepting the hats from the others, who jumped down and started dressing . The music switched to salsa, and as the newcomers danced, they shed their clothes to the rhythm. Clarissa held out her right hand. “I’m pleased to meet you,” she said. Then she stood up and reached for our empty bottles. “In answer to Fidel’s question, these girls come here to escape brutality . I’ll bring a couple more Balboas .” After she left, I turned to Fidel . “Come on,” I said . “They’re here for U.S. dollars .”
“True . But why so many from the countries where fascist dictators rule? “ I glanced back at the stage . The three of them were giggling and or throwing the sailor’s cap around like a ball . I looked Fidel in the eye . ”You’re not kidding, are you?”
“No,” he said seriously, “I wish I were . Most of these girls have lost their families —fathers, brothers, husbands, boyfriends . They grew up with torture and death . Dancing and prostitution don’t seem all that bad to them . They can make a lot of money here, then start fresh somewhere, buy a little shop, open a cafe — “
240: what does your name mean according to urban dictionary? were you named after anyone in your family, or does your name mean something special to your parents?
Stephen Greek in origin, I’ve come to the conclusion that Stephen is just about the coolest male name. Whether it’s pronounced ‘Stef-an’ or ‘Steve-en’ doesn’t matter, it’s just awesome.
Steph and Stevie are also the coolest nicknames.Some famous Stephens include Stephen King, Stephen Fry, and Stephen Hawking.
Stephen is an awesome name.
I was named after a co-worker of my dads. So, in a way, Stephen has a lot of significance for them.
239: have you changed in the past 200 days?
Yup, I definitely have.
I’ve been wanting to test this out for a while. I want to see how long this and that lasts. I’ll tell everyone in a span of 4-5 days?
Of if you’re the kind of person who has no guts, you just give up every time life pushes you. If you’re that kind of person, you’ll live all your life playing it safe, doing the right things, saving yourself for some event that never happens. Then, you die a boring old man. You’ll have lots of friends who really like you because you were such a nice hard- working guy. You spent a life playing it safe, doing the right things. But the truth is, you let life push you into submission. Deep down you were terrified of taking risks. You really wanted to win, but the fear of losing was greater than the excitement of winning. Deep inside, you and only you will know you didn’t go for it. You chose to play it safe.
238: who/what can’t you live without?
