This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

passion.. music.

i like my chemical romance's helena no matter how many times they play the video on tv.

i still like saves the day circa stay what you are.

i will always like chris carrabba's voice.

jimmy eat world. clarity is still the best cd.

certain songs will always bring back certain memories.

so much for everyday

so the reasoning of writing everyday on a blog that noone reads would inspire me to write more.. has seemed to have failed... as i have not written on here for like 2 weeks. oh well... so what have i missed .. well had a game night / riceball party that i think turned out rather successful.. despite first time riceballers and a game of trivial pursuit that seemed to make everyone sleepy.. and make many (or just me) feel rather lost about the 90s. but i did have fun.. especially as we made our move to the xbox playing defjams fighting game. oh yeah xzibit rocked. hanging out with friends is always good times.. i think i should do it more often. lately the weekends have been packed with hanging out with a multitude of different people so it's been grand. this past weekend hung out with our married couple friends.. the hubby's went to play golf as the wifey's went .. well shopping ofcourse! it was good times.. and i actually got my mirrors hung up! i guess it's about time to at least take some photos of the inside of the house for posting. then after dinner the hubby's cousin+friend came over for some payperview UFC. senseless fighting is so entertaining. sunday celebrated my bro's birthday and relaxed a bit.. sooo anyways i'm feeling happy. and that's all that matters.

a shakespearean moment.

Angels and ministers of grace defend us!
Be thou a spirit of health or goblin damn'd,
Bring with thee airs from heaven or blasts from hell,
Be thy intents wicked or charitable,
Thou comest in such a questionable shape
That I will speak to thee: I'll call thee Hamlet,
King, father, royal Dane: O, answer me!
Let me not burst in ignorance; but tell
Why thy canonized bones, hearsed in death,
Have burst their cerements; why the sepulchre,
Wherein we saw thee quietly inurn'd,
Hath oped his ponderous and marble jaws,
To cast thee up again. What may this mean,
That thou, dead corse, again in complete steel
Revisit'st thus the glimpses of the moon,
Making night hideous; and we fools of nature
So horridly to shake our disposition
With thoughts beyond the reaches of our souls?
Say, why is this? wherefore? what should we do?

i memorized this in high school, my senior year. and suprisingly i still remember the bulk of it. i'll always be the girl with the shakespeare refrigerator magnets.

a new day. a new blog.

today i signed up on blogger, and miraculously they had 'lilorchid' untaken. well i guess you could say they were holding it just for me, then i decided well new blog, might as well get a new name. thus, issarocks was born. i decided i wanted somewhere to write that was less xangafied with well... xangstas. so here i am a whole new blog to write about absolutely nothing, isn't it beautiful? yeah, i think so too. well work has been going by slowly lately.. i think it's because of the lack of things to 'qa' and the bulk of things to document, research, review... etc. all good though.. since i do like it here. i like the lax environment, nice coworkers (more than half are uber gamers), and the fact that i can where tank tops and flipflops to work.. w00t. things at home have been well.. everything i hoped it would be :) sure we dont do anything to 'wild and crazy' but it's so nice and relaxing sitting at home.. eating a nice homecooked meal (made by yours truly).. catching up on all the tv i missed during college.. heh.. and doing randomness stuff.. like playing the sims on xbox.. sure the yard work isn't very fun.. but it feels good when we finish a project.. and ofcourse there's the best part of the house.. furnishing and decor.. i'm having much fun looking through catalogs and watching hgtv. and things with the hubby? well i'm absolutely mad about him. more and more each day <3 as for friends.. well i couldn't ask for more.. i am lucky.

and that my friends, is my first post.
