Farewell red brick dorms at SJSU

I lived in Royce during my freshman year. I experienced college there for the first time. Homework. Drinking. Slacking off. Drug use. I didn’t do all of that. But I saw some of it. Oh and it was fun to meet people and just getting to enjoy the college life right in the heart of campus.

They are gone now. I will miss it. So many memories all gone.

Thank you brick dorms. It was fun!

I can’t believe I was part of the RAW after Mania crowd

I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that I was part of this epic night.

And WrestleMania the day before? Amazing!!!

WrestleMania last night was such a blast

I cannot believe that I attended WrestleMania! What an amazing show. I had planned out the entire trip for months and it finally came. And knowing that I had all day, there was no rush to try to get to the Stadium. But wow, it was so awesome to be there. The setup looked amazing and the atmosphere was electric.

The fact that the sun was out for most of the show was tough. I was in section 214 and the sun was on me for five hours. I had my binoculars and my sunglasses, cap so I was OK. Still, it was tough on me.

But to be part of something so amazing was juts indescribable. Visually, it was great. The matches were fun and the storyline as great.

RIP Robin Williams

When I was trying to figure out my career about 10 years ago, I was very close to get into teaching over my career as a writer.

The foundation for my passion to teach can be traced back to “Dead Poet’s Society.” What Robin Williams did in that movie made me believe that I can influence and change lives, open up avenues to young minds that they may never have thought possible. It’s not a glamorous profession to be a teacher, but it is the greatest joy to share your knowledge, your hopes and your love with one another and see it grow into something beautiful.

RIP Robin Williams

A very embarrassing story about my high school

I spent four years of my life here.

It’s not Thursday, but here’s a throwback story.

I went to St. Mary’s College High School, a private Catholic school in Berkeley. They try so hard to do the right thing and try to instill good morals to people. Fine, that’s all good and dandy. But at times, they don’t think things through.

Like this one time, the school decided to do a celebration to show our appreciation to the custodians of our school. Good intentions and could be a great deal.

What a very exhausting weekend of fun

On Friday I met with some outta town friends for a late dinner. We tried out this Tokyo fried chicken spot. Let me tell, you that place is good.

Following, we met up with other friends for some boba. Now that was fun.

The very next day, we spent 14 hours at Disneyland and California Adventure. I had never been to California before but it was a blast. I didn’t get a chance to see it all but I love that place. Too bad I don’t think I’d be going back there anytime soon. But it sure was memorable.

10 years ago today: I saw Eddie Guerrero win the WWE title at No Way Out

I don’t remember much about this day. I know I took BART with my friends to The City, and I think we got picked up by his dad to go to the Cow Palace.

This was my first ever wrestling event live. I followed wrestling but to actually go to the event, let alone a PPV event was pretty cool. I think the tickets were for $45 and they were on the side of the stage, which was tough to see the jumbotron but still had a great view of the ring.

John Cena was a wigger then. Kurt Angle was popular. Kane and Undertaker were about to meet a month later.

But this was Eddie’s night. I didn’t know what was going to happen and I didn’t pay attention to spoilers on the Internet as much as I did, but seeing him win the title, knowing where he came from, and the jubilation everywhere, that was special. He deserved it and I am so glad it happened.
