You Are 30% Left Brained, 70% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.

Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.

If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.

Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.

Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.

If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.

Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.

the story thus far

well, it's been awhile since I posted so I guess I should recap. saturday was pretty busy at work. after work, I went down (or is it up?) to Manhattan. we went to Famous Dave's and had food there. the service wasn't the best and I just checked on-line at my bank statement and I saw that they put $13.25 on my account. the bill was for $10.60. I think the total I put down, with tip, was $12.00. so, if that's the amount that is withdrawn from my account tomorrow, I'll be making some phone calls. yeah, so don't go to Famous Dave's. instead, go to the Chili's there. the service was good and so was the food and they put the right amount on my debit card. after fooding, we went to aaron's and played GT4, katamari damacy, and the new nhl hitz. a great time was had. I think we (shannon, aaron, and I) were up till 5:30 AM playing it and had a record of 301 hits on our last game. then I crashed at shannon and nicole's, woke up at noon, had chili's, got back to lawrence.

on to today's merriments. work was really slow today so they sent the two people that had been there the longest for the day home. unfortunately, that was the two supervisors which meant that I was left in charge and was the only one that could stick red veins and do a couple Senior BMT only duties. everything was fine till about 5:30 when we had our usual rush. six people came in...all of them had red veins except one. one of the red veined people I wasn't able to stick so we just wrapped him up and let him go. unfortunately, I still had to do paperwork for it. as I was doing the paperwork for that, the person that was sticking the only donor that wasn't a red vein couldn't stick him so I fidgeted with the vein. unfortunately, the needle was too deep and I couldn't save it and we couldn't use his other arm 'cause he didn't have a large enough vein in that one. so, if you're keeping track, that's paperwork for two people I had to do then. as I was trying to do the paperwork for these two people, an alarm went off. one of the people that had been stuck by one of the other phlebotemists had a hematoma (sweeling of the arm due to liquid flowing outside of the vein) so I had to stop the autopheresis machine, pull the needle, and stick him in the other arm. this is about when the other four red veined donors came back so I couldn't do the paperwork until the other four were stuck. guess I shoulda known this was the kind of a I was going to have when the first donor I stuck today decided to pull the needle out of his arm when the machine was returning his cells to him. it made a mess.

enough of that now though. I'm home and am planning on relaxing until OC time where I plan on playing lots of ntn.

deep thoughts

well, lent is a time of introspection and deep thoughts and I had one a few minutes ago. it's only during lent that I really pay attention to what I'm eating.

stomach: give me food.
brain: does it have such and such in it?
stomach: don't care. food me.
brain: no it doesn't have such and such.
stomach: yeah! food time!


stomach: give me food.
brain: does it have such and such in it?
stomach: don't care. food me.
brain: yes it has such and such in it.
stomach: stupid brain *gurgle gurgle*

I shoulda been a playwright.

it's a beautiful morning

well, the sun is shining and it's basically a stereotypical spring day. the only thing is that it's still winter which makes the weather seem wonderful. I woke up this morning and andrea made french toast this morning which, like most things she makes, tasted great (I say most because of a banana soup incident). and on top of all of this, today is pay day. the only thing that could make this day a little bit better is if we had some more people come in to donate because it's kinda slow but I'm sure it'll pick up around 5:30 (half an hour before we close) like it always does. right now I'm on my lunch break (we get an hour today 'cause it's so slow) and enjoying my cheese pizza combo from pizza hut (stupid no meat day :( ). I'm contemplating possibly going to manhattan tomorrow but haven't decided yet. depends on the weather and a couple of other factors (like what shannon and everyone else are doing tomorrow).

let's see...quick recap of yesterday...went to work, andrea came down, we had crab dip, went to bed at 11:00 'cause I had to be up at 7:00 AM today so I can learn to open.

well, like I do every pay day, I'm off to pay bills.

life finds a way

well, I've been feeling kinda hermit-ish all day and a little melancholy. no real reason. in any case, I made myself empty the water in the aquarium because the water was a quarter of the way gone and the filter was making its little choking-cause-I'm-out-of-water noise so I thought I might as well change the water in the tank. this usually requires taking a little bit of the water out of the tank with a vaccuum-tube contraption but as I was about to do that, I looked in the tank and noticed something tiny floating in the water. now normally, I would assume that it was fishy-feces but this debris was a little different, it actually went against the water current! upon closer inspection, I realized that it wasn't fishy-feces at all but fish fry (baby fish, not potato wedges trying to pass as fish) and not only that, there was not one!, not two!, not even three! but four! fry (fries?) in the tank. funny thing is that I was thinking about getting some more fish tomorrow. looks like I don't have to anymore (assuming they all survive and don't get eaten by the mother fish or the three ghost shrimp). well, off to bed for me. I've got work tomorrow.

my day

there's something about a blank computer screen that makes me want to just fill it up. I'm not really sure what it is but that urge has always been there. I think it has something to do with all the papers I had to write in college where blank pages = homework not finished. consequently, instead of writing better papers, I've just gotten better at writing the same thing, just with more words. something for all you teachers out there that assign papers based on the length of their essays to think about. anyways, I said I felt a little creative this morning but nothing wound up coming out of that. I found an old game on the game boy advance that I hadn't played in awhile and that occupied about two hours or so and then I cleaned up a bit, taught two classes, came home, made dinner, made lunch/dinner for tomorrow. that, in essence is my day.


I feel kinda creative today so we'll see what sort of mayhem comes out of this. I'll probably post more later.

Your Element Is Air

You dislike conflict, and you've been able to rise above the angst of the world.
And when things don't go your way, you know they'll blow over quickly.

Easygoing, you tend to find joy from the simple things in life.
You roll with the punches, and as a result, your life is light and cheerful.

You find it easy to adapt to most situations, and you're an open person.
With you, what you see is what you get... and people love that!

Tuesday, February 22, 2005


well, yesterday was pretty relaxing. we were really slow at work so I actually got home at about 7:15 which is really early. then I went to OC's with some friends and played trivia for a while. I got first on the first game and second on the second game. got home a little before midnight and went straight to bed. for some reason I was really tired. that brings us to now. well, guess I'll go get ready for work. I think some of the guys from work are coming over tonight for poker night so that should be pretty fun. I go now.

Monday, February 21, 2005


well, here I am on my lunch break. I'm not really sure why but it feels kinda gloomy today. well, at least it did until I got back home for lunch. now it feels kinda good. I've got chicken and noodles for fooding and am listening to Ray Charles right now. very light jazz/gospel-ish. nice and relaxing. let's keep it that way for the rest of the day.

corn beef

well, I'm just sitting here have a corn beef sandwhich and it is mmm...mmm...delish. I made the corn beef about half a week ago and had leftovers. in case you're wondering what's in it, here's the ingredients:

2 slices of whole wheat bread
2 slices of corn beef
1 layer of colby cheese

dir: toast the bread. place the layer of colby cheese on one slice of bread and the corn beef on the other. place it in the microwave without assembling the sandwhich for about 30 secs. spread mayonaise on the slice of bread with the corn beef on it. assemble and enjoy.

on to the events of the day. after studying for about an hour, I went up to andrea's place and we had dinner at her mom's place with her mom, sister, uncle, and aunt (we had chicken and noodles, home made apple pie, mashed potatoes). then we played a couple of games of mario party 6 until about midnight, then I came back to lawrence, stopped by dillons to pick up some bread, and made my corn beef sandwhich which brings me back to now.

what else...tomorrow/today's president's day. it's one of the eight or so holidays that the company I work for celebrates. we don't get it off but we get paid holiday pay so I'm not complaining too much. hmmm...oh yeah, I just posted something new on the poet's corner if anyone wants to take a look at it. anything else...? oh yeah, I was able to stick someone that I hadn't been able to stick yesterday. this donor comes in quite frequently and I think I've tried to stick them about three times but could never quite get it right until yesterday so go me! boo-ya! on that note, I think I'm heading off to bed.


went to go see Constantine yesterday. it was pretty good. definitely had some pretty nice graphics in there. the story was decent. it blends a couple of religions into there. othere than that, yesterday was pretty uneventful much like today. went to church, went to IHOP for lunch. studying for MCAT right now. well, just wanted to update the blog a bit. off I go to study more.

Saturday, February 19, 2005

the story so far...

well, I've been up for about an hour and a half now and my grand accomplishments? I checked email, read blogs, looked up some stuff for MCAT, and showered. I'm not sure if I'd call that productive or not but it sure was time-consuming. well, I guess I'm gonna get some food in me 'fore I leave for work. probably shoulda done that before all the other things but oh well.

something weird

well, something weird happened to me today as I was leaving work for the night. I slipped the key into the ignition and, being the ignorant person that I am, I expected the car to start. well, that didnt' happen on the first try. nor did it the second. nor the third. then I noticed that the security light was on on the dashboard indicating that the security function on the car had been tripped. basically what that means is that when the security function is tripped, the car prevents gas from getting to the engine. so I walked home, went to the manufacturer's web site and looked at the faq expecting to find some elaborate combination that I have to pull off (step on the gas pedal three times, the brake pedal twice, turn the key two-thirds of the way, and honk the horn or something like that) to reset the system. is this what I find? no. instead, it tells me to wait until the light turns itself off, then try again. so after, walking all that way home, I find out that I should've just waited there until the security light goes off. so then, I trudge my way back to work (where I left the car) and tried it again with much better success.

now, on to the rest of my day. we were short -staffed...again. no surprise there. the supervisor's grandmother was sick so she had to drive to oklahoma today which left basically me and another guy that was capable of doing most of the sticks. after work and that whole car fiasco thing, I went to best buy and got the new green day cd (mostly 'cause I got 'boulevard of broken dreams' stuck in my head most of the day). got home, studied for the MCAT (I'm only 3 days behind now. yea!). that basically is my day there. tomorrow's only half a day so that'll be nice. I think andrea and I are going to go see the new Keanu Reeves movie (Constantine) it looked kinda interesting and I've heard it's gotten great reviews so we'll probably do that (assuming it doesn't snow).

give me a lab and I will give you life

well, just spent the last hour and a half stuyding. I was a little bit behind (by little I mean a week's worth) on my reading so I had to read three sections today. genetics (punnett square stuff), molecular genetics (DNA replication, etc.), and evolution (Darwin, etc.). so, in theory, if I had a lab, and I read my lessons correctly, I should be able to create life. well, maybe not but that would definitely get me to read my lessons a lot more closely. if I knew that my misreading something could cause me to create something with a third eye and six toes, I might pay a little more attention to the genetic mutations portion of my reading. well, I think I'll go listen to some jars of clay and clean up a little before heading off to bed.


short-staffed...again. can't talk. gotta go back to work. so much for my half-hour of paradise.

very trippy

well, I got katamari damacy today (the ball-rolling game). I read the reviews on line and they were all good so I couldn't resist...and for $20 it was an even better bargain. basically, you do what the game says. you roll a ball around and try to make it a certain size. the game is very trippy though. sounds like something I'll have to bring down to manhattan sometime (aaron, get your ps2 ready...). in fact, andrea's playing the game right now. I'm just watching and reading my collection of Robert Frost poems and listening to 12 Girls Band now. well, off to enjoy the rest of the night.

I just saw...

I just saw the stupidest thing and had to write about it. I was leaving the parking lot of a store when a car stopped in front of me (this isn't the stupid part). the car carried two teenage girls and the car stopped as if the driver was just dropping the passenger off in front of the doors to a store (not someplace smart like a parking spot). so the passenger gets out (everything still normal so far) then the driver (yes, the driver) gets out of the car with the engine still running! now if I had been just walking around outside (because it is fairly nice outside) and I saw a car just sitting there with no one inside and the engine on and not in a parking spot, I would think "wow. a free car." so, moral of the store, always make sure there is someone in the car if it's still running and if it isn't parked in a parking spot or else I get a free car.

my day

well, today's my day off, I've spent a lot of it just running errands like returning Shark Tales to hastings, buying groceries for lunch, getting the mail, and taking the trash out. I'm also a little behind on my studying so I'll probably be spending most of the rest of the day doing that. what else... oh yeah, I've posted the answers to the last song list if you were wondering what they are. well, off to do a little studying.

*snore, drool*

well, feel asleep on my futon yet again. I was lacking in the sleep department most of last week so I'm catching up this week I guess. anyways, I was just laying down on the futon and relaxing, listening to the new (and last) Ray Charles CD (which REALLY recommend) and reading a book of Robert Frost's poems (I got it for Valentine's day) when I dozed off. guess I was a little too relaxed. I probably would've slept longer but I forgot to turn the alarm off from yesterday so, as a result, I'm up. I think I'm gonna take it easy today.

of God, love, and other trivialities

well, I went to church today for no more noble of a purpose than the fact that I wanted to sleep in tomorrow for the first time in months. left church feeling kinda depressed 'cause the preacher spent a lot of time preaching against gay and lesbian marriages and stem cell research (personally, I think a person can choose to love whomever they choose and that they should be allowed rights and as far as stem cell research goes, I' still debating about it...). I guess I just consider myself more of a neo-catholic than a traditional catholic. in any case, this week is marriage sanctity week or something like that so he blessed the married couples and had them all come up to the front of the church to renew their vows. it was kinda cute so that cheered me up a little. so, as I was saying earlier, I left church feeling kinda down and questioning all sorts of things. since it was raining, and as I sometimes do when it rains, I turned off the radio in the car and started thinking about things. this popped into my head:

I believe that good music is a series of two notes that are so attuned to each other that when they are played at exactly the same time, they harmonize and produce something more pure, more splendid, and more beautiful than anything either could have created alone. this note, then, wafts to the ears of the listener who finds it pleasing. I also believe that this principle applies to love. love is two souls that are so attuned to each other that when they exist at the exact same time in history, they harmonize, merge, and intertwine and produce a life more joyous and more fulfilling than either soul could have produced on its own. the happiness created by these two souls, then catches the eyes of God who looks down on them and is pleased.

just a little something to get everyone in that pre-valentine's day mood.

keep rolling, rolling, rolling...

well, everyone just left so here I am. yesterday, shannon, nicole, nette, chris, and aaron came down here. we met up at free state and had a pretty good dinner there. afterwards, we roamed around best buy for a while, then headed back to my place for some donkey konga and nhl hitz. as of now, the apartment's pretty quiet. perfect for going back to bed for another hour.

my day thus far

let's honor of chinese new year yesterday, andrea and I watched Mulan. what else...well, I went in to work today at 11:00 AM and left work at 8:00 PM. work itself was alright. we were kinda busy most of the day but nothing outrageous. I am now officially a senior biomedical technician (the paperwork for it finally got completed earlier today). right now I'm just catching up on everyone else's blogs. I usually do this in the morning too but I didn't have time to do it before work today so my after-work blog-browsing is taking longer than normal. that's alright though. always interested in what's going on in the lives of friends. what else...oh, we got our schedules for next week. looks like I'm working a 40 hour week next week. I'm supposed to be working 37.15 hours this week but it's probably closer to 40 hours which means that I'll probably be working 40+ hours next week too. tomorrow's also payday :) . the only problem is that I may not have time to get to the bank tomorrow before it closes cause I have to be at work at 8:30 AM (they're teaching me how to open) and I usually make my deposits before I go to work. now I'm gonna go and work on fooding, watching some tv, and probably folding some cranes.

Wednesday, February 09, 2005

happy new year!

well, as some of you may not know, today is the chinese new year (tet in vietnamese). this is now the year of the rooster. coincidently, today is also ash wednesday for catholics so that meant that I got to go to church this morning and get my head ashed. let's see...what else is newsworthy... well, today is also my day off from work which meant that I spent most of the day doing chores. the chore for this week was cleaning. do you ever REALLY look inside your fridge? some really nasty stuff can grow in there if you don't clean it out too frequently. unfortunately, I got acquainted with some of tha nasty stuff as I was cleaning out the fridge today. plans for the day? take the next hour off and actually relax on my day off, then teach two classes, then andrea comes over and we're gonna figure out something to do. I've also made a pitcher of tea so I'll probably be enjoying that once it cools down a little bit more. well, I think I'll go now. for those that care, crane count is now up to 18. only 982 more to go...

the first of many...

paper crane #1. the first of many... Posted by Hello

1000 cranes

I'm not really sure why but the story of Sadako Sasaki came into my mind today: "The paper crane has become an international symbol of peace in recent years as a result of it's connection to the story of a young Japanese girl named Sadako Sasaki born in 1943. Sadako was two years old when the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. As she grew up, Sadako was a strong, courageous and athletic girl. In 1955, at age 11, while practicing for a big race, she became dizzy and fell to the ground. Sadako was diagnosed with Leukemia, "the atom bomb" disease. Sadako's best friend told her of an old Japanese legend which said that anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes would be granted a wish. Sadako hoped that the gods would grant her a wish to get well so that she could run again. She started to work on the paper cranes and completed over 1000 before dying on October 25, 1955 at the age of twelve...Today, people all over the world fold paper cranes and send them to Sadako's monument in Hiroshima." well, now I've got it into my head that I can fold 1000 paper cranes so I'll be working on that on my 'free time'. if you want to help, you're more than welcome to. just use a 6 in. x 6 in. piece of paper and bring them to me the next time you see me. if you need directions on folding paper cranes, they can be found here:

it's slushy

well, in case you read shannon and nicole's blog and were wondering if it snowed here in Lawrence, it did. we got about 4 inches of snow here too. what was mardi gras day at work so we got to dress up. I wore beads and a dr.seuss-ish-type hat that is green, yellow, and purple. it was fun. the only down-side is that I have hat hair now. I've got tomorrow off (assuming I don't get called in b/c we're understaffed or something) so I think I'm gonna spend tonight eating the pizza/buffalo wings I ordered from Gumby's and playing lots of madden. finally, I night of peace and quiet.

Monday, February 07, 2005

anything that can go wrong, normally does

well, it was another busy day at work. not so much because we had a lot of people come in but because we were short staff (even more than usual). one of the guys in reception had someone pass away which meant that one of the people on the donor floor had to go up front to help. then, on top of that, one of the guys on the donor floor broke his arm playing frisbee so he couldn't do sticks. then we had all sorts of problems doing the sticks and then people clotting up. anyways, long story short, I didn't leave work till 8:00 PM. I came in at 10:30 AM...and I get to go back to do it all over again tomorrow. yea! :<

onto some other news, tomorrow's mardi gras so we get to dress up for work. I've got this Dr. Seuss-lookin' hat and some beads that I'm plannin' on wearing tomorrow. unfortunately, that means that lent is just around the corner though. hmmm...gotta think of something to give up for lent... anyone have any ideas?

Sunday, February 06, 2005

how did you find me here?

well, I was just checking my email and I got one from the vice president of the midwest district alumni association vice-president for kappa kappa psi/ tau beta sigma. scary thing is that I don't remember giving them my email address...hmmm....maybe they're CIA.... :P

on a totally different subject. go Pats! I'm kinda tired of them winning but I applaud their team spirit and comradery.

Saturday, February 05, 2005

my day

well, went to work today. everything went well. after work, I stopped by Wal-mart and got some fishies from the pet department and some ghost shrimp. they look more like miniature prawns than shrimp (or, maybe rock lobsters? :P). got them acclimated to the aquarium. spent some time cleaning up. then studied for the MCAT. I read about muscle contractions today. fun fun. that brings me to now. I'm just sitting here updating my blog. oh yeah, I also posted the names to the songs in case you were wondering what they were. I'm probably gonna put up another list in a little bit. thanks to everyone that guessed.

Friday, February 04, 2005


what do you get when you mix stir fry with pasta? well, it's stiretti, of course. why did I mix the two? 'cause I had spaghetti and no sauce and stir-fry and no rice. it doesn't taste that bad actually. it's not really that weird. if you think about it, you're just replacing rice with another form of carb. I might have to make stiretti more often.

so far...

well, so far, I've managed to wake up, brush my teeth, and shower. I also felt really relaxed today so I started on a poem. it's not up yet but I hope it will be soon. check in later. well, off to work I go.

Wednesday, February 02, 2005

what happened to today?

well, I had the whole day off but it seems like I just woke up five minutes ago...I paid rent, droppped laundry off at the laundromat, bought stuff for the aquarium, bought groceries, returned to the laundromat, put the wet clothes into the dryers, made lunch/dinner, brought the laundry home, got the mail, ate lunch/dinner, ironed the clothes, went to teach two classes, came home, ate dinner, put the laundry away and that brings me to now.

let's see...what else...I think the head instructor/owner of the school is proud of me. he popped into my adult class (the one I REALLY enjoy teaching) as he was heading out for the night and gave me one of those aproving smiles that say I'm proud of you. my other class is a green belt and above class but it's mostly full of kids. most of them are pretty good but there are a couple that you'd just like to kick and make it look like an accident. some of them were acting up more than usual today so I had the class do a lot more physical fitness stuff (running, push-ups, etc.) than I normally would but that seemed to calm them down a bit. I bet all teachers wish they could make their kids do push-ups when they're misbehaving. hehehe...

well, it's almost 11 (my new bed time) so I should get going. I've been trying to get to bed semi-early since I've been having to wake up earlier to get in to work.

I heard the strangest thing

I heard the strangest thing today on the radio as I was driving to class. I heard a commercial for radio. not a radio brand. not a radio station. just radio. that's it. a commercial about radio. looks like xm radio, sirius, and the other satellite radio stations are giving am/fm radio stations a scare.

my holiday

my accomplishments

my accomplishments so far today? I woke up and had a pot of honeydew melon white tea. if I accomplish nothing else all day, I am content.
