So the company I work for, Bazaarvoice, is in need of content analysts to moderate reviews for our clients. You can see some more info here and let me know if you’re interested. =) It’s a part time position, and seems pretty easy to do (although perhaps boring) and easily done by a college student.

Umm, I’m sure I’ve got other stuff to talk about, but I guess it’ll have to wait. =p


I went to lunch with a coworker and he was mentioning pranks he had done or had done to him in Jester. Once, he was taking a hot shower and his roommate dumped flour on him. It turned into dough and he had chunks stuck in his hair for days, haha. That’s a pretty good one. =)

“Rain, rain on my face
It hasn’t stopped raining for days
My world is a flood
Slowly I become one with the mud

But if I can’t swim after forty days
And my mind is crushed by the thrashing waves
Lift me up so high that I cannot fall
Lift me up
Lift me up - when I’m falling
Lift me up - I’m weak and I’m dying
Lift me up - I need you to hold me
Lift me up - keep me from drowning again” - Jars of Clay


So when we were cleaning my old room out, we found a project Oriana had worked on about sharks. It was supposed to be an informative book I suppose, so I will leave you with a page from it:

Sharks are so cool!

Haha, we all started laughing when we saw that. The sunglasses were a nice touch. =)

“The evidence convicts the hollow man
After looking inside
To my dismay I find I’m just one of them
Cause I’m an already but not yet resurrected fallen man
Come break this limbo
And I know you know just who I’ve been
Come define me

Rumor has it you love me
Rumor has it the world spins upside down
Rumor has it my only hope is you
And the rumors are true
I turn everything over” - Switchfoot


Well, I spent the brunt of today cleaning my old room out with the girls in my family. It was actually a pretty decent time with most of the kids trying to throw away as many things a possible without our mom vetoing the decision (ssssh, don’t tell her ;)). We found these audio tapes that Olivia and I used to make around 13 or so years ago to send to our aunt in California and we laughed a whole ton listening to it. I think my voice was higher than Olivia’s… haha. I’m gonna make an MP3 out of it, but I’m not sure if other people will find it as amusing as us. =)

With that, I leave you with Oriana’s away message:

Macaroni Grill @ 5
Facing the Giants @ 7.20

with the RR IBS gang.

now a message from Oliver (Gaugau):
Oriana stole all the chicken and wouldn’t let me EAT ANY. Next time you see her, punch her in the face. Also, watch out for our sister’s (Olivia) butt… it’s crusty and you might catch the itch.


Yesterday, I tried to get that Amazon XBox 360 Core for $100 deal, but that failed miserably. Haha, it was pretty funny to see us on planeteers as it was going on with all of us trying to refresh the page.

Went to the Round Rock Outlet Mall at midnight and got some clothes today. Had some hot chocolate and some nice sleep time and now I’m just bumming the rest of Black Friday away.

Here are some pics from Olivia’s birthday dinner with the family:

My sister loves the pictures I take:



Happy Turkey Day

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. =)

We had a family over today, the Tangs, that we’ve had over every Thanksgiving for many many years now and the son in the family, Justin, is in his third year at UT I believe. Back when he graduated high school, my mom gave me a card and $50 to give to him and despite having seen him multiple times (sometimes even with the card on me), I kept on forgetting and he never got it. Eventually, I lost it in the Legacy apartment somewhere, but I found it when we moved out and today he finally got his high school graduation card. Haha… well, better late than never, eh? =)

“the chord runs up the microphone
I flip the switch, we’re going home
transistor’s right on time
resistors fall in line
capacitors are at full
all engines good, no breach of hull
with all the hope that I could beg or borrow
I can’t wait, can’t wait for tomorrow” - Brave Saint Saturn


Went with Kathy the other day to take pics of a family she knew. Figured I could use the practice. They had like… eight kids and six adults and the kids were running around like mad. I kinda gave up on the posing thing cause it was too tiring, Kathy did a pretty good job though handling all the youngins. I took some decent candid shots though…

I’m really wanting Photoshop to come out for Intel Macs soon… ugh…

More wrestling

More under the bench

More on flickr.

Some shirts I ordered from Threadless came in… Yays! Thanks for the link, Andrew. =)

Sister Sister

Happy birthday, mui mui. =)

First day at the new job went well I believe. Still ramping up on a lot of things and it’s a little slow due to Thanksgiving, but I think it will work out well and be pretty exciting. Mmmm, I might write more later. Tata. =)

“January 1, I’ve got a lot of this on my mind
I’m looking at my body through a new spy satellite
Try to lift a finger, but I don’t think I can make the call
So tell me if I move, ‘cause I don’t feel anything at all

So Carry Me,
I’m just a dead man
Lying on the carpet
Can’t find a heartbeat
Make me breathe,
I want to be a new man
Tired of the old one
Out with the old plan” - Jars of Clay


Well, it seems like I’ve been on a blog hiatus… saw the new Bond on Friday and it was pretty good. The best Bond movie I can remember seeing. Definitely a lot better than the last few I remember seeing because they were too… typical. This movie still maintained the Bond feel but was also new, it was pretty good. Yays.

Today at Vox, we’re having a guest speaker to talk about the homeless. We’re also fasting today and I’m already a bit hungry… this is trouble. We’ll see how I manage… I didn’t really eat late last night and woke up somewhat early, so we’ll see… maybe I’ll make an IHOP/Denny’s run at midnight tonight. =)


So I woke up last night in a fit of coughing and ran to the bathroom and threw up. I don’t think I really have any stomach issues, I probably just got way too much air in there or something and lots of uncontrollable coughing can make you do that I suppose. Anyways, after that I seem to have slept decently well and I’m feeling better now and am coughing less frequently, so no worries. =p

I was chuckling to myself about if Van were there and woke up to me puking in the toilet, came over to see what was going on and saw me kinda slumped over in the bathroom. It seems like it would have looked like I had a wild night out and drank way too much or something… haha…

My memory of this trip to the bathroom is kinda interesting and very fuzzy (probably because my vision was really fuzzy since I didn’t have my glasses or contacts in). I’m not quite sure how to explain it…

Mmmm, been a while since I listened to BSS…

“I tried to steal the moon from the sky
I am lost and lonely
I drift in space
my dreams are haunted by her face
blessed are the drifters, the stars that die
whose light expires, before goodbyes
goodbye, goodbye” - Brave Saint Saturn
