september... been feeling like knitting. flashback of childhood when my mom taught my sister and i to knit. it was pale yellow for me and soft pink for her. we wanted to make sweaters for our favorite stuffed animals: hubert (hubie) the pooh ~winnie the pooh in disguise and linda the pink rabbit respectively. since my sister and i are older and she now has kids... i've decided to try making something for my niece areiah and my nephew ethan for christmas. good luck to me. bought knitting needles and really nice yarn in baby soft colors...i think its called fingering yarn. it's really fine. not having much luck with the knitting. need some help.
october...i bought the the The Complete Idiot's Guide to Knitting & Crocheting by Gail Diven, Cindy Kitchel(Introduction), Nancy Lindemeyer from stacey's bookstore on market street. i've been working on my knitting... i showed my mom the baby knit yarn and well...she kicks butt at knitting. o___O i tried to imitate what she did...no go. un raveled the whole thing. my mom tells me to try a more hardier yarn. my brother still has his yarn from a past summer school project: skeins of blue and brown bought from michaels. i'll use those.
november...went to thankgiving lunch at a chinese restaurant with my fiance's family and spent thankgiving dinner at my parents' house. i made two pumpkin pies and green bean casserole. blah. i gave up on the baby stuff. i am now attempting to make a scarf.

april...melissa, dave's sister, turned 19 on the 26th. something bad happened to her on the morning after. she had to go to the hospital.
April 29th was my widdle nephew ethan's 1st birthday! :) He took the cutest pictures for his birthday.
may...may 3 or 4, we had ethan's birthday party. spent all day cooking and then jumping around in the jumper they rented for the day. the weather was really nice too. it was so funny to see all the so-called "adults" jumping around; namely myself, my fiance, my sister's husband, and various grown cousins. LOL My mother's birthday was on May 5th. we gave her two flowering potted plants- from dave, my brother jason and i - red tulips; from my sister jerilyn and her husband Q: fuschia daisies. and we gave her a tiny birthday cake. Liezl and Miles go to the Philippines for their second wedding! o__O I was soo happy for them.
june... was the end of the semester. i passed frontpage with an A without any effort and got a B in nihongo. we gave tanaka-sensei a small going away gift and card with a cute puppy on it. i had fun in her class. she is now teaching nihongo at UC Berkeley. good luck sensei! i started working as a receptionist at vector marketing part-time on the weekend. began looking for an apartment.
BIG NEWS!! My sister gave birth to a baby girl, Areiah Faith, 7 lbs. 1oz. on June 27, Thursday. I was not able to make it to the hospital. Apparently, my sister gave birth so fast. o___O so i missed out. Areiah is a cutie. She looks just like my sister. She's a Cabbage Patch Baby! :) I gave her a pink beanie baby for a presento!
july...got more hours as receptionist. apartment hunting goes on. looking for a second job. i would love to get back into school taking nihongo again. we'll see how this goes. Ethan and Areiah look different every week.

YAY! ^o^ I've also had to exchange my mom's x-mas present! :P
took a final fantasy quiz from tasuki.com and look:
You're Yuna. You're hardworking and honest, and also a little naive. You can easily be lied to, but in the end your friends will look out for you. Kind and loving you'd never hurt a fly. You'd be willing to do anything to help others, even if it means some personal sacrifices for you.
