Avant - I Wanna Be

It’s funny how life works. How everything happens and somehow it all fits together.


There’s someone who I’ve known just as long, if not longer than most of my girlfriends and it’s just been the past month that we’ve really taken the time to hang out, talk, and really get to know each other. It’s funny because when I’m having issues she’s the first person that pops in my head to reach out to. And I’m truly thankful that I have her as a friend. Now when I think about the past month and how nice it has been to find someone trustworthy again, it makes me think why didn’t I take the time to get to know her before? People really do have great timing when coming into your life, another reason why I truly believe that everything happens for a reason.

She’s shown me that not all girls are fake, so thank you for being real, honest, and most importantly trustworthy. We’re so much alike that it’s good to hear her tell me things that I wouldn’t listen to if I was telling myself the same thing.


When things get to be too good to be true, I gotta do something to make sure it’s still real.


How do you know that the person you’re with is worth all of the time? There’s a bajillion others out there in the world, how do you know that the very one person you are with now, is the one?

I believe that everyone has one heart, therefore, everyone will have one love.

I've been feeling so unmotivated to blog lately. But I promise (you ^_^) that I will post up about my guardian angel soon.

I've been feeling curious lately... *sigh* and I can't fight it away. I'm actually scared.

Theory #3:

Everyone is whole; no one needs someone to complete them.

I believe that happiness starts with you. If you do not feel happy with who you are and what you have then how is anyone else going to make you happy? Especially a significant other.

I think too many people expect their boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, or wife to make them feel complete and happy. And a lot of people who expect that out of their s.o. are finding themselves more and more disappointed when their s.o. doesn't make them feel that way. But maybe that’s the problem; you shouldn’t expect them to create something that you should have for yourself to begin with. I mean think of it like this, shouldn’t you be happy that you have friends, a family, a car to drive, a roof over your head, and food to eat? Shouldn’t you just be happy that God gave you life and he gave you another day to breathe? I know I am. That’s why I don’t depend on anyone to make me happy except for myself.

The weight of happiness shouldn’t depend on another person, they have their own happiness and problems to worry about, no need to add yours onto the list.

One thing I do expect out of a boyfriend is for him to make me happier. That’s not too much to ask for is it?

"I don't need a man in my life to make me happy, I'm already happy with myself, but I wouldn't mind a man in my life to make me happier." -Tammy Le

For Memories, $ is worth it

When I was in my teenage years, I’ve never wanted to get married. I thought the idea of spending my life with another person was impossible, I didn’t believe in love, and I thought if I was ever to get lonely I could just adopt. Well things have changed, not because I’m with someone great, but because with me being with someone great, it made me realize how much I want to share my life with another great person. If I wanted to, I could graduate from college, start my career, start a family, own my own home, and travel the world by myself. But I don’t want to; I want to share all of those things with someone I love.

I blame Nghia and Giang for getting me hooked onto these Still Motion videos. I haven’t cried watching one yet, but I have to admit they are pretty sweet. Supposedly to hire Still Motion for same day editing is $10,000.00. Well, I better start saving now.

I am only going to get married once in my life with my true love whoever that may be. I definitely want to cherish it, remember it in the best way possible and also share it with everyone I love and care for. A video by them would definitely do!

Here's a video of one of my favorites:

In addition to theory #2

Things I wouldn’t give an exception for:
  • physical abuse: a slap, a punch, a kick, even a little pinch, if he wasn’t joke then adios!
  • too controlling: when he tries to be in charge of every aspect of my life, the possessive one
  • cockiness: total turnoff and it honestly makes the guy look bad
  • disrespect: don’t put me down, you will not succeed and you’ll never see me again, even as a friend
  • gold-digger: I don’t mind paying and buying things, but when you’re using me, that’s another story
  • expecting change: I will not change for anyone but for my immediate family and myself
  • not defending me: I can defend for myself, that doesn’t mean I want to. If you are my man, you will defend me and have my back. I would do the same for you, and I expect the same from you. Even if I’m wrong, have my back in front of others, and talk to me about it behind closed doors
  • the word “divorce”: this will only apply for when I’m married. If we’re in the heat of an argument and my future husband says the word divorce, it’s OVER. I don’t believe in divorces, because I believe that love will work out no matter what. But if you’re thinking about it…warning sign.

    Things I thought I wouldn’t give an exception for:

  • infidelity: I’ve always told myself I’d never be that girl to take a man back after he’s cheated on me
  • waiting: I’ve always told myself I’d never wait for a man to make up his mind on whether he wanted to be with me or not, because I believe that if you really want to be with someone, you shouldn’t have to think about it
  • no clear future: I’ve always told myself that I wouldn’t waste time on someone who couldn’t see a future with me
  • sexting, sex-mailing, sexbooking, etc: when you’re sharing nudes w/another person or talking to them about sexual deeds
  • crying: I’ve always always always have told myself a man is not worth my tears
  • verbal abuse: I hate when the man I’m with swears at me. I am not your friends or your dog
  • dishonesty: I hate liars, and I never thought I’d make an exception for a man lying to me. (I have in the past but I won’t anymore after our “official” break up with T two years ago, I broke up w/him because he lied.)
  • underappreciated: who hasn’t felt like this ya know? So I guess it’s “normal” but I’ve always thought that a man should always appreciate the things I put forth into the relationship.

    Obviously, there’s probably more to both lists, but I just can’t think of off the top of my head. I’ve always this and that, but you really never know what you’ll do, whether stay with him or leave him until you are in the situation yourself. Things are a lot easier said than done.

    Theory #2:

    Expectations before and exceptions after

    I’m guilty of this and I know I’m not the only one. We’ve all set expectations of how we want every relationship we’re in to be. What the deal breakers would be (most of us would say cheating), what we want from the other person, etc. But then when the s/o does one of the things we've told ourselves we’d break up with them for, which one of us would really leave everything we've put time and energy into?

    That’s when the exceptions come in. I don’t like to admit it, but I’ve made plenty of exceptions in the past, with past relationships and even with the person I’m with now. It’s not because I am weak willed, it’s because somehow faith always keeps me going. Faith, that if I give this exception, this one time, things will be better and he wouldn't break another expectation.

    But with every expectation does come with disappointments.

    Theory #1:

    There are good men in the world, but even good men are human, and as humans we all make mistakes. I don’t think woman who are in a monogamous relationship with a man should trust him 110%.

    My theory is that in all men, even the good ones, that there will always be a .01% chance that they will cheat on you. Whether it be physically (kiss, holding hands, sex, oral, etc) or emotionally (telling things he doesn’t tell you to some other woman, etc), never give him that .01% of your trust.

    We all want to believe that the man we’re with will never do us wrong, I mean if we didn’t, why would we still be with him right? But, if a man finds a chance to cheat and never get caught (in his mind, because the truth will always find its way to the surface no matter how old the situation is), he will. I’m not saying, go throw your relationship out of the window right now, because I also believe that if the man above really wants you two to stay together, than you two will find a way to work out anything and everything, even infidelity.

    Let’s just hope these good men that I’m talking about are smart enough to learn from their humanly mistakes.

    Success, Money, & <3

    The view from my parents' living room
    Success is an ambiguous word. It’s hard to have just one definition for the word, so what’s yours? I’m sure a lot of people’s answers will include the ‘lots of money’ in it somehow. Not mine though. It might be cliché to quote someone for a definition of a word, but I couldn’t have said it any better.

    "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty. to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

    I’ve never understood why so many people value money, and I might never know why. There are a few things I value in life, and money shouldn’t on anyone’s list, but the sad thing is it’s on almost everyone’s. Yes, it’s nice to have it, but if you don’t it shouldn’t be a problem. It just seems like everyone who’s started from the bottom and worked their way up, all of a sudden changes who they are because of the fact that they have more money, I think it’s rather sad. Everyone starts from the bottom, remember that. And if you didn’t start from the bottom, then I feel sad for you because having money handed to you by family doesn’t show very much of who you are as a person. I just wish that people who started from the ground up, wouldn’t forget who they are while riding to the top.

    I will be successful later in life, and I can guarantee you that I won’t forget where I came from before all of the luxuries. And I definitely won’t forget the people who stuck by me either, because all of you will be up there by my side.

    I think one way men show that they love you is by them trusting you with their deepest, darkest fears and secrets, especially from those who have too much pride in saying the actual word itself.

    I wonder how women show their love?

    cause this is how I always feel

    "I guess you’re right; I’m afraid. I’m afraid to put my guard down. I’m afraid that if you know who I am, you won’t feel the same. And I’m afraid that once my barrier is defeated and I’m comfortable, that you’ll walk away. Because that’s what everyone’s done anyway."
    ...but I've never allowed anyone to break down this barrier, and to melt this ice.

    I'm so sad right now. It's sad to see friendships torn over things that aren't worth it. Even if it's not my own friendships. but it is what it is...

    Testing 1,2,3...testing out the mobile blogging.

    Todo Tiene Su Final.

    All I really want in life...

    I think I've come to realize that all a girl really wants is:
    1) to find love
    2) to experience love
    3) to fall in love
    4) to marry and create a family w/her love
    5) to be loved unconditionally

    ...well maybe that's all I really want. That's not too much to ask for is it?


    Someone prove this wrong to me please...

    They say the one you love and the one who loves you most, are never, ever the same person. Someone please prove this wrong!

    ....what.the.hell. has gotten into me? Where is the cynical Tamzilla I used to know?

    Is it fair?

    Is it fair to consider myself 'mean' because I am not afraid to speak what's on my mind? Because I am comfortable enough with myself, that I know who I am? Because I don't care what anyone else says about me and the people that I love and will stick up for them? Is it fair to consider myself a 'bitch' because I am not afraid to speak the truth, even if it hurts someone else's feelings?

    I am against liars. I have no respect and want nothing to do with people who lie. Sugar coating is considered lying and I won't sugar coat no matter how much I'm trying to protect someone's feelings.

    There are people I know who don't take criticism well, in fact they probably take an offense to it, but I like it. It makes me know how I should better myself. I think other's should do the same. Listen to the critcism, and thank the person who had the nerve to tell you it. Cause only true friends will tell you what's up.

    I'll definitely add more to this! I just really have to finish my philosophy paper. 11 hours left to finish it.

    Scary Cat

    T’s not a big fan of scary movies. He likes to say they’re boring and pointless to hide the fact that he’s actually scared of them. Back then I’ve always gotten him to see scary movies with me but ever since my move back, there’s been no luck on getting him to go until about a couple weeks ago, and even then it was hard to get him to agree to go, I had to use the best of my best persuasion skills for us to go. The movie we saw was Paranormal Activity, and ever since that movie he hasn’t been sleeping well. I vow to myself that I will never ask him to see a scary movie ever again. Yes, it’s that bad, and yes, I feel that bad for getting him to agree in the first place.

    We were probably one of the first ones to see it in Minnesota, and we had no idea what the movie was going to be about. Rather, I didn’t know what the movie was going to be about. I mean I saw the trailer, but I didn’t know it was going to be like that (I don’t want to ruin for those of you who haven’t seen it yet). If I had known, I wouldn’t have asked T to go in the first place, but what’s done is done. The night of the movie, I was forced to sleep over, and we couldn’t sleep at all. We had to wake up to make it on time for his 11 o’clock class but he decided to skip it since he was so tired from not getting any sleep. And for the rest of that week he slept over at his best friend’s house, after a week of that he’s finally been sleeping at home but not in his room, which is cute and funny all at the same time, but I’ll have to admit I do feel bad. Even when I’m sleeping over at his place, we sleep in his room but we both can’t get any sleep. He does crazy things and it makes me scared so I wake him up and it’s all just a continuous cycle…haha.

    And on top of not being able to sleep in his own room, he has me stay on the phone with him until he falls asleep, then I hang up around 7 or 8 in the morning cause I know for a fact he’s sleeping then. I could hang up earlier when I hear him snoring but just in case anything crazy does happen. Well tonight is the first night since the movie that he’s decided to try and sleep without me on the phone. So far so good.

    Wow. I can’t believe I just typed up that much about my boyfriend being scared!

    11 Things People Forget

    1. your best friend is your worse enemy.

    2. Nobody wants to see you doing better than them.

    3. Blood is not always thicker than water.

    4. Not everyone you love will love you back.

    5. Things are always easier said than done.

    6. It's true when they say the hardest part is letting go.

    7. Life goes on with or without you.

    8. Just because someone tells you they love you, doesn't mean they mean it.

    9. The trusth always finds its way to the surface.

    10. People come and go.

    11. Someone always has it worse off than you.

    "Hey lover, am I the only one,or are you selling your baby a dream?"-Twista "Dreams"

    Valley Fair July 11, 2009


    "When you're young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don't leap at all because there's not always there to catch you. And in life, there's no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?"-Unknown

    When did life get so scary? Between finding ourselves and the person we’re suppose to spend the rest of our lives with, we could die, or worse break, our heart. That’s one reason why I’ve never given anyone one. You can’t break what’s not yours, and since it’s not yours, you can’t break.

    I’ve never let anyone in 100%, because I’m smart enough to know the consequences of doing so. And is kind of sad, but I don’t think I will ever let anyone in all of the way. T’s been the only person I’ve ever let in this far, and I don’t think anyone will get passed this point, even him. No one wants to get hurt, no one wants to be vulnerable, and no one wants to cry, so why let myself get any of those things? If there’s a way to protect my heart, then you bet you I’m going to do whatever I can to never let it break.

    It’s not that I don’t believe in love, I do. It’s just my definition of love is complicated. There are no first, second, third, or tenth love, there is only one love. That person that I will love will be the person I marry, and will be the person I die happy loving. I believe that if you love someone, you can and will work out anything and everything, from distrust, lies, infidelity, to financial problems, if you truly love that person, and if that person truly loves you, you will be together forever.

    It might sound a little corny, but I’ve seen it happen with my own eyes, true love does exist. And I’m not worth any less; I deserve true love, with my one and only love. So until the day comes, I’m keeping my heart to myself.

    T is a very good boyfriend. I actually can’t imagine anyone doing the job of “Tammy’s boyfriend” better than he does it, but there will always be doubt with him. Not the kind of doubt you’re thinking about, but the doubt of whether or not we have a future together. I’m the kind of person who likes to plan things out, to know what the future holds for me. While T on the other hand likes to take each day as it comes, I bet you he probably doesn’t even know what he’s saving for right now! That’s another reason why I know I shouldn’t let him in completely, because I don’t know if we’re going to be in each other’s future or not.

    What keeps me going, what motivates me in a relationship is knowing that we have a future together. The future is what makes me want to try. If I couldn’t see a person in my future, I wouldn’t want to waste my time on them. But with T, even not knowing what our destiny holds for us, I can’t help but keep trying my best in our relationship. I guess for this relationship, it’s not the future that’s keeping me going, it’s the faith I have.
    "So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don’t, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it, if it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."-Greys Anatomy

    We have split, went our own ways, lived our separate lives, and even then our feelings for each other couldn’t be erased. Maybe, just maybe it can’t ever be erased. Just maybe. Only the man above knows what our fates hold, I also wish I knew, so I know if my efforts are going towards something good or just a lost cause.

    Early morning vents

    Live I’ve said before, when I am meeting new girls, I am very cautious. And there are two deal breakers that I look for when meeting one: gold diggers and sluts/whores/skanks…you get the point. If a girl is any one of those two traits, I will not befriend you. Yes, I give everyone a chance to prove themselves to me, but I believe that you are who you hang out with.

    You are who you hang out with:
    Say you go out to the clubs and bars with a girl who known to be a gold digger or a skank, or just has a bad rep in general, people who know her but don’t know you will automatically assume you are the same type of person she is. After all, that’s why you two are friends right? –Because you guys have things or rather something in common. But then if you go out to the clubs and bars with a girl or girls who have a clean rep, girls who are well-liked by mostly everyone (it’s very hard to be liked by everyone, someone will always try to bring you down), then those who don’t know you, but know them will automatically assume you are well-liked, clean rep also.

    --This theory of mine, works only to an extent though. It is possible for one person to have a variety of friends, BUT the person looking at you at the bar or club doesn’t know this. They only perceive what you’re letting them perceive, which at that very moment is the group of girls you are friends with.

    And with that theory of mine, I wouldn’t want to bother wasting my energy and time on girls who have no self-respect. We all have standards in life for everything; let’s just say this is my standard for having girl friends.

    Gold digger:
    A woman who cares about the material objects and the money more than the man; A woman whose underlying interest in the relationship is material benefits; A woman who is a prostitute (in my sense), using sex to receive material benefits; A woman who lacks the independence to support herself, so she sells sex to get it from a man; A hooker, just smarter.
    …need I say more? Who wants to be associated with a hooker? –Definitely not me!

    A woman whose intentions are to sleep with as many men as possible; A woman who sleeps (it could be dating too) her ex-boyfriend’s friend(s); A woman who sleeps with another man, while in a long-term relationship with the man she did not sleep with; A woman who has more than one baby daddy within a year or two; A woman who has done dirty deeds for more than one man during a week time span; A woman who sleeps with a man while knowingly that he is unavailable; A woman who has no self-respect.
    ……yeahhh enough said.

    I feel irritated by women who have such low self-esteem that they constantly are looking for attention from men. If you don’t respect yourself enough to have a high self-esteem, seeking the approval from men isn’t going to make it any better, I mean if you don’t respect yourself, who will? I certainly won’t. And I think it’s ridiculous that so many women are getting breast implants to make themselves feel better. Yeah, men like big breasts, and you could easily say “Oh easy for you to say because you have big boobs.” –Yeah, I do for a woman my size, but whatever happened to appreciating what your mama gave ya? Besides, fakeness will only get you so far. Just like fake breasts. They look nice (again with the whole perceiving thing), but while you’re in bed with your man, he’s always going to prefer the natural stuff over the too hard stuff. Oh and that goes for push-up bras too, it looks nice, but once you’re in bed and he realizes your “big” breasts aren’t so big, he’ll be one disappointed fellow.

    I could go on and on about my women pet peeves, but I’ll save that for another time. (=

    I'm honestly trying to keep all of the "parasites" out of my life, and along with that I'm trying to figure out who are the "parasites" that are already in my life and kick them out, but it seems like they're following me everywhere!
    Like a good friend of mine has told me, no matter how far you try to run, your past will still be with you. I just wish these people would just let me have seperate lives for them, and then seperate lives for others. Let's not intermix two things that are so good so that it could go wrong.

    Job Hunting

    I've been unemployed for about two and a half weeks now, but I haven't started looking for another job until today. I had no motivation, and I definitely wanted to enjoy the free time I didn't have before quitting M&I...and so I am. Enjoying my time. I'm definitely getting the sleep and study time I deserve.

    Took me about a half an hour to update and revise my resume, it's been two full years since I've touched or even looked at it, boy should I start revising it every month! It's hard to think about the skills I obtain and the work related courses I've taken in school under pressure. For resumes, I'm basically trying to sell myself in the best, shortest possible way. Not everyone will be impressed at first glance, and if they're not impressed at first glance they won't even read it.

    During this job hunt, I've got to remind myself that not everyone has created a resume or even know how. Not everyone has the work ethic and work experience that I have. So I have an advantage over the majority of the people. All I need to do is land the interview and I'm set. I've never ever landed an interview and haven't gotten called back to accept the position, never. I think if there was an interview that I've failed, it'd be a big blow to my ego. But right now, I've got a big ego...

    Wish me luck guys, for I need it because my savings funds are running low, and bills need to be paid!

    I've applied at too many places. Sit back and let it happen...rewarding myself with an all new episode of GLEE!! (=
    "You will find that each relationship you’re in & the hardships that come with them are the building blocks for being able to handle almost any situation in your future relationships. Until finally someone comes along who will love you unconditionally & who you’ll just know is in it for the long run. For now, learn the lessons, appreciate the time spent & move forward. There is no use in being miserable over someone who is happy without you." -Unknown

    Cultural Backgrounds, who are you?

    I am a Vietnamese-American woman, and if there was any other racial backgrounds that I could pick I wouldn’t trade up my ethnicity for any other ones in the world. From Vietnamese culture to our country and our different religious beliefs, I am damn proud to have Vietnamese in my blood. Growing up was different though. When I was a child growing up in Eden Prairie there was a big part of me that wished I was White. There were so many things that I couldn’t do that other White kids could do because I was Vietnamese (or just Asian to them). I remember I could never sleep over at any of my school friends’ house for birthdays because my parents held certain beliefs that “We are Vietnamese, we don’t allow our children to sleepover at other people’s houses unless we are there with them.” especially because I was a girl! And one birthday I got my dad to let me sleep over (he was always easier going than my mom), but during the night, my mom called my friend’s house telling them that they were going to be over immediately to pick me up, after that night I remembered holding a grudge against my parents for not letting me stay. Even growing up in Richfield in my early teens, I got over the whole White thing and wanted to be Laos..took me awhile but I know who I am today, and I’m damn proud of it. I love the beautiful ao dai’s (traditional Vietnamese dresses), our fish sauce, our food, music, our people, our holidays, even the crazy stuff like superstitions…everything. Don’t get me wrong, I love other cultures, I just am proud to have the culture that I have. But am I so “Americanized” that I cannot recall the day where I first saw someone other than my ethnicity? I grew up with all different kinds of races and ethnic backgrounds that I think I’m pretty accepting and open minded about everyone, it was normal for me to walk into a classroom with a “rainbow” variety of kids. Today, was probably the first time I felt like a minority in a long time. Everyone in my intercultural class could relate to one another but me.

    Growing up I hated that everyone in school who had dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, chinky eyes, and short, was automatically Chinese. Or when they call us 'Asian'' like it's an ethnic background. Yes, we're asian, but we're a sub group of that group, ignorant people! But now I love it when people guess my ethnic background, gives me a little taste of what I look like to others than those who already know who I am. I've gotten guesses on Korean, Chinese, and Japanese...I guess I look pale or something (haha..ok that was wrong, bad me for stereotyping).
    It still amazes me how racial discrimination is still around though. You'd think since it's the 21st Century people would grow up and learn from past mistakes, but nope.
    And it's funny how we conform to the "American" way so that we don't get discriminated. We now wear premium jeans and North Face gear just like "Americans"do. You don't see any one of us wearing those silk pj's they wear back in Vietnam out in the streets, and we did, we'd automatically assume they're "FOB." Yes, I'm guilty of this, but it's just funny isn't it? How we talk about how much different we are and blah blah blah but really we're still trying to conform to something?

    Short 'dislike' list

    -People who change their profile pic (on FB) every week/day, and have more than 25 "profile pictures" are too into themselves. Get over yourself!

    -Boots that are open toe..not cute!

    -Not being employed

    -cleaning my room; I don't mind cleaning other people's rooms but when it comes to mine, I try to avoid it for as long as I can.

    I need new friends. Or maybe no friends at all. Why can't people just be honest and real? Why are there so many fake people?????? The people I've hated in the past, I've apologized and told them why I disliked them. The people that I actually wanna be friends w/atleast. But so many of my girl friends talk about this person and that person to me behind their backs and are friends with them to their faces. DISGUSTING.
    I've been meaning to make a post about my guardian angel, and how I know she's mine and my family's guardian anglel, and what have led me to believe it. But I just haven't gotten around to it yet. BUT

    My brother just totaled my sister's car while driving her and himself to work. After all of these years, she's still looking down on us and watching over us to make sure we're ok. <3

    It's the anniversary of her death today. (I posted on my FB her birthday sorry mistake!)

    Maybe after I get out of the shower I'll tell you guys my story.

    The three of us back in the days

    Today marks my little brother and sister's 20th birthday. They are no longer teens, and are a year closer to being able to drink legally. Even when that day comes, I have no doubt that I can trust them with alcohol. Neither of them have shown any interest in drinking in the past unlike myself, so I know I can trust them when they do turn of age next year. But that is next year and this year they are finally 20!

    I'm proud to see where the both of them are right now in life. And even though they both can be the pain in the ass most of the time, they are my blood, family, and I love them very much so. Just like my parents, if anything was ever to happen to either one of them, I think I'd be depressed...<3 you both very much so! and I hope they both get what they wished for, even though this year, I cannot give them whatever it is they want because I recently just lost my job, but hopefully when Christmas rolls around, I'll be employed again and can give them somewhat of a little something something. (=

    This is as deep as I can go since it's five in the morning, and I just got done reading pages after pages of philosophy..but I may add a little more later on today.
