I had my first section on Tuesday. It was pretty interesting. Actually, I'm pretty glad no one I knew showed up to listen to me teach. I was kind of all over the place and ill-prepared. But I think it should be better today. This time, I'm bringing along a powerpoint presentation I spent an hour coming up with. So yeah. I think it should be okay today. I also have office hours. WOW! I have OFFICE HOURS! =] My students seem to be cool. I have a lot of international students, though. This could be a problem because they seem to have English "disabilities." I'm not sure how they're gonna do. I feel bad enough since I figure this summer session is going to be pretty hard. Probably not as hard as Barath made OURS out to be, but still hard enough that people will be complaining. I guess that's to be expected from 61B.

Going back to Berkeley on Sunday! That's pretty exciting. I have so much stuff to pack up to go back. I didn't realize how much stuff I bought! I'm a shop-aholic! =] I bought a cute ribbon tank from Abercrombie and Fitch. Also bought the matching underwear. Apparently, it's "skanky cute," in the words of Li. Christine is getting back from Santa Cruz today and we're supposed to hang out later. We're gonna go get food and pick up on cute boys =] Haha. Right. I also bought shoes today to go with my new summer dress. Hurrah for my new wardrobe!

Went shopping today. That was exciting. I bought a cute yellow tank with cherries on it from Forever 21. =] Also bought a cute polo shirt from Aeropostale. Then headed over to the Sanrio store (never too old for Sanrio!) and bought a new pencil case since mine is broken. Also bought a Hello Kitty tote, large enough to fit my laptop. =D Proceeded over to GameStop and bought Street Fighter 3 Alpha on Game Boy Advance (for Desmond). Then headed over to Michael's to buy magnets for my sister. I wanted to sunbathe and get tanner, but it didn't start to get sunny until later in the afternoon, while I was shopping. It's okay, though. Tomorrow, I plan to head over to Galleria to shop.

I've been in Torrance for about a week now. Good times, good times.
Monday: Hung out with the family since my grandmother is visiting from Taiwan.
Tuesday: Tried to work out in the morning. I ran in a mile before I nearly died. Wow. I'm so out of shape.
Wednesday: Took my grandmother out to lunch and then took her shoe shopping. She was looking for a pair of sneakers. But she's looking not just for any kind; it MUST be the kind without laces. She prefers velcro, instead. WHERE, may I ask, AM I SUPPOSED TO FIND THOSE? So I took her to Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker, and even Children's Foot Locker. Better luck next time, I suppose.
Thursday: Sat my lazy ass at home trying to read over CS material so I won't be completely lost this summer.
Friday: Tried to take my grandmother to one of my favorite Chinese restaurants, but it was closed. That was depressing. Then drove over to this other Chinese place that USED to be good, but now isn't. We had dim sum, but there wasn't too much and it wasn't very good. I tried to pay for the lunch, but she wouldn't let me. She says I can pay when I make money (which I do). Apparently, she's talking about a REAL JOB.
Saturday: Headed over to my cousin's house in Rowland Heights. It's been two years since my grandfather pass away, so we had to do some praying and whatnot. Then had lunch with my family (including cousins, aunt, and uncle) at some Chinese restaurant in Rowland Heights. Apparently, my (older) cousin thinks its funny to joke about the Lakers and whatnot. I, on the other hand, was not too amused.
