I turned 15 last night, and the celebration on my rooftop was amazing! The movie Charlie St. Cloud was great, and Zac Efron can't get any hotter or I'll die. Barbecue, Masquerade Photoshoot, and mostly just watching the city under us go by was excitingly chill. Thanks everyone for having so much fun with me!

Jasmine Darlene Hanley

I remember the first time we talked was during art class in 7th grade. You were admiring the hundreds of topless photos of Chace Crawford in my black iPod Classic. 

Then, a year later, it was Spring Break 2009. It was the best Spring Break of my life, seriously. Besides watching The Devil Wears Prada together over the phone, going to the nightmarket with Dev, and pretending to be Jumby in the MS Lockers, the best thing that happened was us. We became friends. 

It's something I never have and never will regret. You are one of the only people that I don't get into fights with often. You are the only person that never judges me for anything I do. Anything. No matter what. I know that when you go to boarding school, you will meet lots of new people and have lots of new best friends, but I sincerely hope I remain the only David Yu in you. Please remember all our promises together- NYU, Greek/NY Mansion, BF swapping, GBFFL- and I hope you will keep being who you are now because that's the Jasmine I will always love and want to be best friends for life with. It barely even feels like you're leaving; it's almost like you're on vacation only because I know that when you visit in December, our friendship will be equally as tight. That's how good of friends we are. 

I don't want to keep going on and on about how much I miss you because I think that's pointless. Just know that I miss you a bunch and call me weird, but I don't want you to think about me when you go to Taft. Think about me once in a while, but I don't that to be your daily requirement. When you visit however, you need to channel yourself back to being the da juju for me. I hope all our jokes together will be more than a distant memory in the future. I want you to know that being your friend has made me realize how "germane" a "predicament" really is at times, and if that's worth being a bitch about.

Anyways, I will see you on the flipside.

baby daves, xc / starship / frontierville buddy, xiao juju, your GBFFL.

PS. No matter what happens between us, I hope you will never throw my CD away on purpose.

the house bunny

i'm the house bunny. yep.

fine, this isn't a time to be joking around. so i just watched the house bunny on television and even though it's one of the most hilarious films i've ever watched, there's something really meaningful addressed in the story. i know this is the corniest shit ever, but "don't judge a book by its cover" is so true. you never know who you're with until you really get to know them. i think that's something i've achieved with most of my closest friends but i want to learn that about everyone and be the nicest bitch ever to people.

*update: SALT was amazing! i love angelina jolie, so, so much. and that movie talks about trusting people. you can never trust anyone completely. at all. you never know who you are dealing with, always keep that in mind, and also, always keep a part of you to yourself unless it's your life partner or something.

the movie was amazing. fucking amazing.

so the movie talks about dreams. then dreams within a dream. then dreams within a dream within a dream. intense. 

two things:
1) i love joseph gordon levitt.
2) i love ellen page.

it questions what reality is. the film revolves around going into a dream with your conscious to live a life that you wouldn't be able to live in "reality". the twists to the story make the long film a true blockbuster, and the ending leaves the audience hanging on the question "what is reality?"

so what is it? my over-studious english tutor would always question me what reality is, and how do you know what you're living is reality. after all, the things you see are just the energy reflected off the object. how do we know what we are living in is reality? 

there have been tons of theories suggested by lots of philosophers such as existentialism, humanism, and relativism, but the one i agree with is humanism. it's the belief that humans on our own can act morally without a god, and that all humans are intrinsically good. it doesn't matter if we were raised without parents or in a violent family; that's no excuse to go around killing people. humanism explains the consequential difference of your actions- and with no belief in afterlife, it gives people the right to live however they want without worrying about any consequences.

it's inevitable. it's horrific. and at times, it's unexpected.

yesterday i was stalking a hot distant friend of mine on fb. i saw he was tagged in a photo, and next to him was his brother. i clicked into his brother's profile and i did some more stalking. after a while, when i started showing some friends about this hottie, and suddenly there was a weird status from the hottie. "My friend, My roll model.....My brother.....I Love You." my mind blanked out. shit. shit shit shit. shitfuckers. that's horrible. that's fucking hell. i realized the guy i had just stalked was dead.

over the next 24 hours, there's been over 6 pages of wall posts of hearts and "stay strong" and "you and your family are in my prayers". that is seriously fucking sad. i can't even begin to imagine the pain. what would you do if your sibling died (no cursing intended). i know i would be crushed if any family or friend of mine passed away.

anyways, i just wanted to post this and to tell everyone reading this to make the most of life and cherish the moments you have with your family and friends because you never know what will happen tomorrow, and know that i love all of you!

on a summer's day

hey y'all, 
sorry i've been really busy and also too lazy to get up and blog. but you can't really blame me for making fifa sooo addicting. "i love fifa for providing me with eye candy" -coco fong. :) 

well, a few days ago i went to bai sha wan with my homies but i'm just going to pretend it's today so it's easier to blog about. well at first, i wasn't allowed to go because it was an unsupervised trip to a beach with random strangers and lots of random gangsters. but then, i lied to my parents and told them i was going to a birthday party. this made me consider what my life would be like if i hadn't been tricking my parents about almost everything. scary.

anyways, on the trip there, we met four super cute gay guys and magically, they were also on our bus back! it makes me really jealous to see them together because i know i'll probably never have that until i get to college because my school is just that lame. but whatever. we had a lot of fun at the beach, but it wasn't actually that fun. it's really nothing compared to laguna beach, or any other beach in california. there wasn't much sun to tan, so we were in the water most of the time. it sucked. really. i hate it when we come out of the water and sand always sticks onto you. and at the end, we had to pay 20nt for a ghetto-ass shower room that provided us with freezing water and naked fat men walking around. thanks a lot.

the only good thing about it was being with friends and eating smoked sausages. my love. they are so goddamn delicious!

thanks guys <3
