Tabbed out Abbed out

Abs abs abs abs abs..

A couple of really good friends, Shelby and Dennis, with Erik and my brother Kearne took on this 30 day ab challenge. It’s so hard to actually follow through these things alone so it’s such a great motivation to have others do it with you. We actually make it a point every day to keep each other on track by having a Facebook message always buzzing reporting back once they’ve done it. As for me, doing it with Erik and my brother everyday keeps me consistent with this challenge. The reason why I wanted to do it cause I personally just want to be back in shape. That goal seems so far fetch now a days since life is so busy, it’s hard to find time to run or have a full body work out now a days. Yeah… i get some cardio in once in a while. But I guess the ab work out gets me some sort of self conscious on what I eat, and it gives me a good sweat everyday. So i’m proud to say that we’re on DAY 18, 2/3 more or less through the challenge. I get lazy here and there, but I’m thankful for these people that keeps me motivated. So today we took a progress picture, THE ABS ARE COMING TO LIFE! (sorta?). Except Erik…. yeah he’s an exception.

Out and about

So Erik and I somehow took on a busy schedule this summer. Erik landed a job with a business consulting group at Newport, and I continued on my internship at J. Medical Center on top of research at Glabe Lab that I just recently started. So with at most two days that I spend at my internship and 3 days at UCI for research, plus Erik working three-full day we are rarely home. As much as possible we try to spend as much time with each other (sometimes too much), making the most of our summer, while being productive before school burns us out again. So last Saturday Erik and I got two shades darker at Soak City with mi familia and today we spontaneously took a trip to Santa Monica.

Soak City was fun but we were able to finish all the water rides in two hours (i forgot how small it was). Nevertheless, I actually got darker which was my ultimate goal so that’s good. Soak City got boring after a while, and it got too crowded for such a small water park so ice cream at Farrell’s sounded better.

Today (Mon, July 28) was a spontaneous date, he planned on taking me to the aquarium but I told him that I didn’t want him to spend so much money so instead he took me to Santa Monica. A whole day at Santa Monica and Third St. Promenade only required 22 dollars! We’ve been doing well with not spending so much money lately. 22 dollars got us two bacon wrapped hot dogs, a full day parking, iced coffee, and two sweet dollar tea. Rides and games at the pier kinda got over-rated and it was too hot so we spent most of our day at the Third St. Promenade and window shopped. As boring as it sounds it was actually pretty darn fun. From finding grumpy cat items, drooling over tesla cars, and strolling the street with foreigners… it was another great day with Okazaki fragment.

I guess this is my very first blog post and lets see if I can keep up with this. I don’t really intend this to be like one of those every day blogs, but just free lancing on what I feel is post-worthy.

UntitledNevertheless, what’s the best way to begin this blog but with a video? Yesterday I finally got to hangout with my girls. I guess always being at UCI because of school and now research, on top of internship just kept me from doing so. Anyways, it’s always a good time with them and it’s always nice to come back to the hometown and see your favorite group of girls. Besides, most of us are now in our quest to fulfill our own future endeavors, hoping to land a spot in the medical field. So its nice to take a pause from the busy, stressful life and just have a small break. I can’t wait till we all finally live that Grey’s anatomy life (although leaving the drama behind). I’m glad they are still not tired of me after more or less 7 years of this friendship.
