Mồng 2: Oh well, stupid people.

Mồng 2: SAO MÀ MÌNH CÓ “DUYÊN” VỚI MẤY NGƯỜI -VIỆT KIỀU- THÍA KHÔNG BIẾT??? Và câu chuyện lần này cũng lại liên quan tới tiếng Anh.

Mình hỏi chị ấy ở bang nào của Mỹ. “Ca-li-phọt-nhi-đa.” (California)
"Dạ rứa thành phố mô chị?"
"Lót An giơ lét” (Los Angeles)
"À, rứa là /Eo Lei/ rồi." (LA)
"Cái chi? /eo ei/ chứ."
"Dạ, đọc nối vào là eo lei. Cũng giống như USA, đọc là /ju wes sei/."
"NHƯNG MÀ NGƯỜI MỸ ĐỌC LÀ /EO EI/. Mi không có biết tiếng anh rồi!"
"Dạ, em không biết tiếng anh."

Hahahahahaha. Vui.

Day 4: New Year Resolutions.

1. Mua một đôi giày tốt.

2. Đọc sách và xem phim về thiên văn học.

3. Học tiếng anh.

4. Nấu ăn.

5. Giảm cân.

6. Lên kế hoạch cho những chuyến đi.

Note to self:

  • Bạn không thể biết một cách chắc chắn người ta nghĩ gì về mình. Và không cần quan tâm quá nhiều tới chúng.
  • Dừng việc mổ xẻ và phân tích quá nhiều về một vấn đề. Đến cuối cùng nó cũng chỉ quay về việc kể lể và than phiền mà thôi. Bạn sẽ không bao giờ thoát khỏi vòng luẩn quẩn đó.

 

  • Học cách yêu cơ thể mình vì đó chính là thứ cuối cùng ở lại cạnh bạn, nếu có bị bỏ rơi. Nhờ nó mà bạn có thể trải nghiệm tất cả mọi thứ, đi đến những nơi mà mình muốn và làm những điều mình thích. Vậy có lý do gì để không chăm sóc nó cẩn thận?

Day 3: Days before Tet holiday.

The days before Tet holiday are always ridiculous funnier than actual Tet days.

This month is being super awesome to me.

Even when I had a lot of worry and depression.

Even when I went climbing more often than usual. [Fun fact: Whenever I feel sad, I go climbing.]

Even when people kept making me annoyed.

My big brother finally finished builting his new house and I alreally moved my stuff from my uncle’s house to his house. Right now I am enjoying days without my niece at home. Parents are always the best. 4 months and 12 days staying at home because of the result of petechial fever and the unemployment makes me sick of babysitting.

I need my freedom.

I need my youth.

So that’s why I kinda fail at being an aunt.

I say, KINDA. I love my niece more than anything/anyone else. Just sometimes I am so bored.

This morning I started helping my mom cleaning the windows and glasses. I even watched all of the motorbikes in my house. FOUR FREAKING MOTORBIKES. :)

This year is gonna be awesome.

+ I am going to travel more.

+ I am going to have a boyfriend.

+ I am going to lose weight.

+ I am going to be happy.

 Happy new year. Happy 2014. 

Love you, <3

Day 2: My Company.

I know I am so lucky to have those people in my life.

They save me.

They feed me.

They make me laugh.

They pay me.

I am so grateful for past 2 months and 1 week. All of the sadness, boredom, anger, hunger I had to suffer through awful 4 months and 12 days don’t matter anymore. (:

— Sep.

I usually call him as “Sep!” or “Sep oi!” and I don’t consider him as a serious boss at all. I just wanna be friends with him. He’s funny, FREAKING funny, kind, kinda good-looking, and crazy. I adore him. 

Sep oi, thank you for everything. Thanks for saving my life when it was really broken. Thanks for being a part of my life now and forever after.

— Dung unnie.

She’s big (like me). She’s older than me, which makes my life so much more comfortable. I like her. Maybe she is kinda as sensitive as me, and kinda mean as well (sometimes), but after all, she’s a great person who deserves happiness.

Chi Dung, thank you for food left after every meal for tours, thank you for stories and words you told me,… Thank you. Without you, I would not be here.

— Hong.

She is as old as me. She’s prettier than me. She is skinner than me. She is more popular than me. She is more confident than me. She is girlier than me. She KINDA makes me jealous.

Sometimes I hate her when she tries to flatter Sep.

Sometimes I love her when she teaches me how to cook.

Sometimes I hate her when every boy in Bien Dong resort pretend she is the only girl there and yes, I am fucking invisible.

Sometimes I love her when she is not mean.

Sometimes I hate her when she tries to divide the company into 2 groups: me & Dung and her & other guys (includes Sep). HOW DARE SHE! Bitch.

Sometimes I love her when she lent me her jacket for a interview. (& I failed at that interview anyways)

Kinda.

— Quoc & Trai.

Quoc is younger than me. Anh Trai is much older than me.

I like them.

Because they don’t talk to me too much. You know, when you’re really close to someone, you often have a fight with them no matter what. So sometimes just try to be far from them some time, friendship will work out.

Because they are not girls.

Because anh Trai usually gave me many chilly peppers.

Because Quoc is kind and easy to talk.

Because, oh well, I like them.

 

— Bien Dong staff.

They’re mean. They’re ugly. They’re not kind at all but they always pretend to be really generous. They always act like they LOVE Hong and how about me, “Who is that awkward girl?” They are lazy. They are selfish. They are not smart.

Maybe I am so fucken mean to say those ugly things about them. But oh well, I tried to see the positive things in them, but after a long time, I gave up.

Forgive me, people.

— Son Tra.

I love you,

The sea.

The wind.

The atmostphere.

The cold.

The rain.

Forest.

Sand.

The beach.

The sky.

That blue color.

That gray color.

Clouds.

I love you, Son Tra.

——

I think I am going to live a long life filled with awesome and great moments.~ And I wish you guys, whoever reads this, will have a wonderful new year filled with happiness and joy.

Day 1 - Life after university.

Currently listen to After the storm by mumford & sons.image

When I was in a black hole of sadness, depression and vulnerability, Dung sent me a message on facebook which DID mend my wounds, ease my mind and set me free. Have you ever gotten the feeling when you get rid of a horrible job experience? Have you ever felt awful every single day doing work you don’t like? Have you ever finally gotten the job you always dream of?

                 Taken at Bien Dong resort. Jan 23rd 2014

Yes, feelings and thoughts change quite constantly in just few minutes.

She said her boss wanted to study English again and if I could help them/

HELL YEAH! Best moment of my life.

I wanted to quit my old job even when I had not started it yet, but just be honest with myself, I thought,

+ If I quit, how could I feed myself?

+ My friends have jobsssss.

+ I did not wanna go home again. 4 months and 12 days were enough.

+ I AM A FREE BITCH, and although salary, the old boss and the job sucked so hard, I must to go to Danang!

So, Dung’s message solved all of my problems.

Petechial fever. Horrible job. Annoying things and words from parents (I know they want the best for me, but sometimes they hurt me without knowing). Fears. Hair problem. Babysitting my niece.

ARE FUCKING GONE.

I am happy. I am free.

Today I challenge myself to WRITE, I mean, from now on, this tumblr is gonna be a home where I am gonna write my heart out.
Okay, kinda.
After days and nights feeling extremely depressed with reasons known and unknown, I realized I need to wake up and live.
After watching some videos about The Universe, and Gravity 2013, I realized I am just a little person in a little planet in the vast universe. Life is so short to be that close-minded.

So, from now on, 
+ Writing daily on this tumblr. About life, people, things and stuff.
+ Travel. Maybe, Hai Van Pass Tunnel.
+ Lose weight.
+ Be happy. (:

You can do it, Thuyen.

High-five for open minded people

this is cute and also observe: sometimes people aren’t being deliberately close-minded and douchey about issues like sexuality etc. ok sometimes they just need somebody to patiently and politely explain things to them

Currently listening to Story Of My Life - 1D. DON&#8217;T JUDGE ME, please. (:
Yesterday I took a job which is gonna eat me up day by day, I&#8217;m so sure about that. I heard everything about this job from my old friend and she adviced me not to take it because it doesn&#8217;t deserve what I put my energy and money and brain and everything in it and, yes there is an important &#8220;and&#8221;, THE SALARY SUCKS. 

I don&#8217;t know. I&#8217;m overwhelmed. I&#8217;m desperate. I&#8217;m sick. I just wanna cry.
I wonder where the old Thuyen is. The active, happy, grateful, enthusiastic Thuyen. WHERE THE FUCK IS SHE RIGHT NOW?
Lame, Thuyen!

Just put yourself out there.
You don&#8217;t need to care too much about the salary.
You just need to learn things and meet people and WORK YOUR ASS OFF.
JUST PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE.
YOU CAN DO IT. 

YOU.
MATTER.

Facts about me.

I’m sweating all the time. Seriously. And I hate that. I hate it when I don’t feel self-confident at all in front of people because I have really sweaty underarms. I don’t know why, it’s not that hot. I am always the wettest person among my friends when we go shopping, hang out, blah blah. They don’t even feel hot at all while my face is full of sweat. Sweat drips down my face a lot even when I’m in front of the fan. Sweating way too much makes me confused.

I AM WAY TOO CAREFUL. I care too much about arrangements, my clothes,… I mean, I care too much about things and stuff which I consider VERY IMPORTANT. I need them to be perfect and clean and fucking neat, and straight in my table, my closet,… I think I have a disease like Emma in Glee. 

I’m worried all the time about the littlest things. My friends get sick of me. Muahaha.

I’m able to be in the house in a week. With a computer and the internet. Sometimes when the power is off, I don’t know what to do with my life next. xD

I’ve not been fall in love with someone.
