today has been one of the best days for a long time now. even though i’ve had about 7 hours of sleep for the past 2 nights, today was so fucking worth it
First dragonboat race of the season! and it was crackin’ as fuckkkkkk. Got up at 530am for it. it was SO chill and relaxed. it did sprinkle pretty hard for a long ass time, but when it cleared up and the sun came up around 1-2ish, it was all good shit from then on. our races were pretty fun but i re-aggravated my sprained ankle and it got all swollen up again =[ i couldnt walk without it hurting for at least an hour or two. i even had to take myself out of the finals because i didnt want to injure it more.
THEN came dinner. and the sf giants game. we got to the sushi place around 8pm and it was already the 8th inning BUT the restaurant did have a niceass tv. AND greatass timing cuz URIBE hit that game winner right after we got there. then all of us nervously watched lincecum come in and allow those two singles and we got too nervous. but then, of course, BRIAN WILSON come in and gets out of the inning like with two pitches. FEAR THAT FUCKING BEARD. and the ninth when brian wilson couldve clinched it with a base hit while the bases were loaded but he didnt cuz HE DIDNT NEED TO BECAUSE HE ROLLED RIGHT OVER THE PHILLIES. after that final pitch, our table went CRAAAAAZY. even the sushi chef behind the counter was celebrating with us. AND we got free dessert (some fried green tea ice cream thang, it was DELICIOUS) after our dinner. we all tipped this restaurant SOMUCH but they were hella nice and deserved everything.
SO fuck. giants are in the world series again and it cant get much better than this. until the giants win it all of course, but thats in at least 2 weeks. LETS GO GIANTS.
today was a fucking bombass day.

I’ve been getting hurt all my life. Even my screenname was at one point “Da1DatGetsHurt”.
STORY OF MY LIFE
Now since i’ve been in college, I’ve been seriously injured 3 times and another time just hurt really bad. Maybe its time to BLOG ABOUT IT?!
Oct 2008: I get a call from Harrison Lau at 2am saying to come over to Revelle! Mitchell (his bro) came down for the weekend or something and was hanging out with Stephanie Leung and Phillip Chung. So Im like ALRIGHT! I go borrow Chris Law’s bike and head out. It was foggy as hell and the floor was pretty damp but I didnt really care. I didnt even leave Muir yet when I cross a street, miss the ramp to the sidewalk, hit the curb, the bike takes a bad hop and i fly head-first into a fence. My right side of my forehead was kinda scratched up and bleeding a little bit. My shoulder gets scratched up pretty bad (but it looked pretty damn cool!) The security guard who heard me crash comes over and calls an ambulance and i had to go to the ER because i apparently had “head trauma” and had some symptoms of a concussion (i was dizzy and couldnt stand up straight).
(PS. SOOO people kept telling me to say NO to the ambulance because its hella expensive right? i tried. The accident happened 2 weeks before my 18th birthday so i was still a minor when the accident happened. and because i had “head trauma”, i had to go to the ER. HELLA DUMB. my mom had to pay HELLA because i “wasnt able to choose for myself whether or not i was hurt since i was a minor.” TWO WEEKS. WTF)
Heres a pic of the shoulder part a few days after the accident:
dont mind the stupidass look on my face..just look at the shoulder..this was the best picture of my shoulder after the accident..dont make fun =]
DEC 2008: I havent even finished my first quarter of freshman year when i get my 2nd serious injury. SOOOO my friend Frank Chang was one of the Social Chairs of Muir College or something and organized a “Glow-In-The-Dark Capture the Flag” event against Revelle College. I didnt really want to go but Frank insisted that i go so i went and dragged Chris with me. 10 minutes into the game and its pretty fun..until some revelle douchebag charges me since i was across the center line and i start backing up to the line. Im jogging backwards as he pushes me with full force, flipping me over and i land on my right shoulder. i instantly feel so much pain in my right side and i cant move my right arm. one of the organizers come by and notice my writhing in pain and the guy who pushed me just said “oh he tripped on himself” and then he walked away. as im lying on the ground, disoriented outta my mind, all i thought about was..i HAVE to get to the jail, he tagged me! so i get up, hobble to the jail and collapse because im so disoriented. i think i actually mightve had a concussion then..as i think about it now. BUTYEA. i couldnt finish the game and Chris brought me back to the dorms. I went on WebMD and figured out i had a Muscle Strain, but my RA insisted i go to the hospital because i was in so much pain. I said i’d go the next day and i went to sleep. Little did i know that i had FRACTURED my collarbone and would need a sling.
I was supposed to wear the sling for 4-6 weeks. I stopped after 3 and a half. and i think my right collarbone will forever be bigger than my left one. =[
FALL 2009: I was at Ranch 99 with my friends and i was sitting in front of the cart being pushed by my friend. All of a sudden he stops and i land on my feet. THEN he pushes ahead really hard and jams the front of the cart right into my right ankle and yea. My bruised ankle. That was it for my second year. Not that exciting..
FALL 2010: As i sit here writing this fucking blog, my ankle is still throbbing a little bit. Last Sunday, Ivan Yue invited me to play basketball with some of his church buddies. I played with them before so i just went with him. 2 plays into the FIRST GAME, im on a fast break down the court, i go up for the layup and i miss (>.<) and as i come down, my right foot lands on someone else’s foot and i roll my ankle pretty damn hard. It hurts IMMEDIATELY after and i fall to the floor but the ball somehow lands on me, i try to pass it to my teammate but the other team steals it from me as im on the floor. I cant get up since any weight on my ankle caused me so much pain.
I went to Student Health the next day and my sprain was confirmed to be a Grade II sprain, not a complete tear of the ligament (grade III) but not a minor sprain (grade I).
NO PICTURE. but for the past week, i’ve been using crutches and they hurt like hell! both my hands were a little bruised and my pits were sore from walking to class.
my life just keeps throwing shit at me. and i keep getting hit. What wont kill me, can only make me stronger? HAH. we’ll see. BRING IT ON LIFE!
PS. shorter blog next time? yea..imma try haha
