"Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life" - Steve Jobs

October 4, 2011. The world awakens to the news of the death of Steve Jobs.

In his commencement speech to the graduating class of Stanford 2005 he said “No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent”

If death is the single best invention of life, then change is the greatest effect you can leave behind when you leave this temporal world. Mr. Steve Jobs, we are lucky to have been an audience to a man like you. You are a remarkable man who has touched our lives with you exciting and mind blowing creations.

Thank you for your inspring ways.

And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.

If I had a guy best friend this is what I’ll probably feel on his wedding day. I am not necessarily romantically attracted to him but the history of our friendship will make me nostalgic.

You look at him as he waits down the aisle. You can’t help but feel a rush of nostalgia. Those years when he came to your rescue (bad set-up dates, major heartbreak, bad boyfriends etc), made fun of you, made you laugh, cry and at times frustrate you. You don’t remember how you became really good friends, you just remember his value in your life. Things will definitely change but you won’t have it any other way-he was such a big part of who you are now. You feel nostalgic, you feel happy, you feel sad, you feel as if a new chapter of your life will begin… As you witness your best friend waiting down the aisle for his bride.


I discovered a song that best describes “arrested development”. I swear I could have probably written this song but Landon Pigg wrote and sang it well.

Read ‘em and weep or should I say listen and weep.

Deep inside every girl just wants to have Mcdo Fries. A worldwide campaign by the golden arches touches upon how “it” should be simple and uncomplicated. How did we ever make it soo complicated?

I am proud to say that I have been alcohol-free for 70 days. Nope this is not an entry for AA but this was due to the program I committed to last January 31. 70 days alcohol-free equals 30+lbs lighter. So if you are reading this it means that I am a bit closer to my Everest.

I am now used to having prepared meals wherever I go but I had to adjust much. This meant trading in wine/scotch for Coke Zero. My friend told me that there was a study and a lot of girls are willing to give up one year of their lives just to be thin. Well, I guess this is my version of giving up “life”. For approx 8 months I will be on this journey, the prize at the end I’m sure will be rewarding but I don’t even want to think of the end I just want to focus on the now or perhaps breakfast for tomorrow.


Last night over wine and Coke Zero my friends and I had a conversation about blogs. Two of us wanted to create blogs but were challenged on what we would put. I mean I have my fair share of  adventures and discoveries but most of the time it borders on routine. So I decided to give blogging a go and tell my stories.

So the journey in blogging begins and so does my way back to 95.

95 lbs that is…

It’s going to be one tough journey but I consider this as my Everest and being able to wear my senior year cheerleader outfit will be my pièce de résistance (note that it is already February and I do want to wear that outfit for Halloween, good luck to me!) By the way, I am supeeeeeer far from 95lbs. Let me put it this way the weight I have to lose was best described by Eddie (played by John Cusack) in America’s Sweethearts “That’s a Backstreet Boy!”

So I will share this particular journey (amongst other things) and how I battle and cope with  Arroz Caldo/Goto cravings at 11PM and dreaming of drinking Scotch just to wake up panicking because of the fear of deviating from my program.
