ps. huh?: Impacted Tooth dilemma →
pskrizia: I have an impacted wisdom tooth. For the most part it doesn’t bother me, but there are times when it will hurt— like when I’m eating and something gets stuck between two teeth. Last year, while still enrolled at UCSC, I came home and had a dentist appointment. At the appointment I was told I had… mmm. You’ll be paying much more than $925 if you get those health problems...
Performing the World
Starts Thursday evening and will end Sunday evening. I’m in for a busy weekend, and yet, I’m excited. Can performance change the world? I’ll let you know.
Time for an UPDATE :)
^ This is how I’ve been unwinding when I get home: a nice shower and hot cup of tea. I realized I haven’t updated [my life] in a while. Things have been so busy and it’s starting to pick up a whole bunch at work that the biggest concern my supervisor’s and I have is when my day off can be. That’s a good thing, and I’m definitely enjoying every bit of it (for...
expandinghorizons.: Education →
chelseaelise: In the 1950s, California was #1 in education. Schools were funded by the local communities and everyone made a commitment to ensure their children were receiving the education they deserved. Now we’re 48th in the nation. What happened? Under NCLB, all public schools are supposed to have… WORD.

Day 27- Why are you doing this 30 day challenge
…because I can. and I want to. and I think it’s interesting to do some of these things.
Because I'm up late
Currently, it’s a bit after 3:30am and I keep telling myself I need to sleep because the next couple of weeks are gonna LONG so who knows when the next time I’m going to get a decent amount of rest (tonight isn’t that night). Lately in between my hot showers, subway rides and city walkin’, I realized that I’m in a position where I’m realizing what I want to do...
Day 26- What you think about your friends
My friends are amaze-balls. I’m so blessed and fortunate to have such an amazing group of friends that act more as my family. They always know how to have my back, hook me up and just be my friends. The one thing I love about my friends is that I know that they’re always there and support me in anything and everything I do. I <3 all of them, Norcal and Socal. To all my friends, I...

Day 23- Something you crave for a lot
FOOD. Lately, it’s been carne asada fries.
Day 22- What makes you different from everyone...
What makes me the same is a better question. I really can’t say what exactly makes me different than everyone else because it is really hard to pinpoint. I like different things. I look different. I come from a different place. I’m going in a different direction with my life. I have different aspirations. I have different opinions. I’m very different that what you might consider...
Day 21- A picture of something that makes you...
I usually don’t do this type of stuff, but I found out via twitter that JR Aquino was doing a meet & greet in Union Square NYC. The reason why I usually don’t go to these things is because I’m really shy around people that are pretty known and whatnot (take Phil Lumbang for instance, I was hella scared to meet him even though I drove two hours to see his work). I figured I...
Day 20- Someone you see yourself marrying/being...
Hard to say. But I do see myself being HAPPY with the person I’m with.
Budget = Life
I’m still figuring this out. I worry sometimes, but I have faith in something.
Day 19- Nicknames you have; why do you have them
JQ: I owe this nickname to my broski J-Bo, who dubbed me “JQ” our sophomore year of high school after football practice. He called me “little homie JQ” and it stuck. This is what almost everyone calls me, and sometimes people don’t even know my real name ;) J-Quiz, Quiz, Quizzle: Variations of my last name that is kinda/sorta shortened. I believe my SC homies were...
Day 18- Plans/dreams/goals you have
I have a lot of these :). For the future, I want to be happy. I want to be happy with wherever my life and education and experience takes me, and I know I want to help change lives in a positive way. I’m going to travel and I’m going to enjoy my life. I dream of making the world better and being able to get paid for chillen on the beach with my friends ;). I want to own a motorcycle...
