Be mine and I'll love you forever

Graduation. It was lovely. The question is, what to do with my life now?

Hello, Goodbye

 What I have learned is that Time does not make any exceptions.  Keep an open mind, have a free-spirit because you will never know how beautiful certain people are if not given a chance. By the time you realize how amazing they are, your time is up and their time to leave.  Make the best of times spent with others for who knows when you will see them again

Another goodbye but I'm still lucky to have these girls.

So Far, I've been well behaved with my spendings... That is, until I met this hunk at Best Buy. I want you so bad.

“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.


Hello world I am still alive though lost amongst the treachery of PCATS and Pharmacy applications. Everything has been the same and nothing out of the ordinary. I'm definitely in need of some excitement. Maybe another travel will will do and help me find what I'm looking for- a tall, nice, built man with a Spanish, Italian, or German accent and...oh shit, I've said too much. Anyway, I guess my Starbucks coffee will suffice for now. Stay loved my friends.

see you soon my love.

I love that lavender blonde.

July is finally over and so is its hectic schedule. I can't believe I have done so much, met new faces, experienced new places in ONE month. All these new experiences and surprises are for the better, I guess. 
First off, Lady Gaga was amazing as always. She made me realize how much fun it is being a "Free Bitch." My entourage wasn't bad either. I love them. I've never had a big family, thus being with these monsters make me feel loved and less lonely. 
   As always, my girls, Rose and Laura, and I had a fabulous girls night out. Well, until I got super drunk and woke up by a bathroom door. Anyway, they are amazing. Weekly lunch with my girls and ATX ladies who lunch keeps me sane and gives me something to look forward to. I can't wait for Claypit this week ladies.

Lastly, I'm very happy that my sister is feeling better and more alive again. I guess she has embraced her new lifestyle and I can't be more proud. Weekend, you were lovely. Lake, sun, fun, and love.

As you grow, you learn

Alot of my loved ones are going through a tough time with their personal relationships. Being in a relationship is one that I still do not understand. I find them complicated and difficult to maintain. Seriously, my relationship with myself is hard enough already.

Here is a quote I find to be sort of uplifting, yet true. Life - just accept it.

As you grow, you learn- Anonymous

When the broken hearts are mended and the many tears are dried, u learn.  When you're over the old boyfriend and u realize you can live without your first love, u learn.  You see that the world doesn't end just b/c u think it will, and that sometimes growing up means letting go.  You learn what real love is, and u begin to see that one friend who really cares about u is better than a hundred friends who don't.  You learn that u can be strong, take each day step-by-step, and survive every sad moment.  So feel the pain and cry the tears, go out and experience life.  But when you're at the end of your rope, and you're ready to jump off the ledge, remember that the heartache fades, pain subsides, and though life seems at times too tough to handle, it's also too precious a gift to waste.  Keep on livin, never give up, and remember: AS you grow you learn.

I have never been quite the socialist to voluntarily participate in any group activities, but I'm grateful to have opened up. I decided to have lunch with Atx Ladies who Lunch along with my friends Rose and Laura. It was one of my great experiences yet. I shared a (crowded) table with lovely/ talented /ambitious /outgoing designers, artists, fashionistas, and bloggers. I  feel motivated and inspired. Thanks ladies.  I am anticipating next week's lunch.

So this is it?

 So this is the feeling. The feeling that people hope to feel and share in their lifetime. The feeling that makes people do crazy things, feel crazy things, and just turn plain insane. I guess what human nature has created is inevitable-- even for people like me.

This could've been something fun, amazing and beautiful. But I know it's not mine to keep.

Maybe next lifetime.

Perfection at its absolute best

Perfection [per-fek-shuhn] noun: a quality, trait, or feature of the highest degree of excellence.

I'm sure everyone in their lifetime has had a celebrity "crush" once in a while whether it's for their talent, fame, reputation, philanthropy work, or their down right good looks. Cristiano has been mine ever since I saw him play for Manchester United years ago. Let's all admit that his soccer skills are the absolute best of the best. I have not seen any type of footwork as great as his. He will become a legend.  I doubt any later generation soccer players can do what he does.  Did I mention how good looking he is? Every physical feature is perfect! I'm a sucker for great smiles and a deep voice, and he sure has me hooked. Ok, I'm going to stop before I start acting like a silly twelve year old girl going crazy for Justin Beiber.

I'm just glad you came.

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is,
you will know what to do for that person. 
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. 
They have come to assist you through a difficult time in your life, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.

What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. 
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. 
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season .

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. 

Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.

It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant. 

Whether you came into my life a reason, season, or lifetime, I'm just glad you came.

Ambition at it's finest

Ambition never is in a greater hurry that I; it merely keeps pace with circumstances and with my general way of thinking.

But fate ordains that dearest friends must part- E.Young

I have met alot of great, intelligent, inspiring and amazing people in my life. Some of them are still around, but the majority moved on to bigger and better things. Goodbye is no stranger for I have seen so many come and go. 
Today, I faced the hardest goodbye of my life thus far.

If you are ever reading this,  I wish you the best and am very happy for you. I sincerely am. Don't forget about me. Don't forget, we have to meet in Rome!

Been through whatever together, I mean whatever the case.

Dear Life,

Thanks for all you have put me through. Thanks for not letting me be the person I used to be.Thanks for allowing me to witness the good, the bad, and the evil.Thanks for letting me see that the grass isn't always greener on the other side and that bad things do happen to good people.But also for letting me see that there are good people out there still and that I'm lucky enough to have them in my life. Thanks for letting me learn that there are bigger and better things for me out there. love,
Mai Quynh Ngo

Another semester conquered, yet another awaits. I can never seem to escape school's wrath. The past two weeks had been nothing but play. I deserve it I suppose. If I work hard, I play hard. So much has happened in 2010 and only half the year has gone by. Many life lessons, experiences, and mistakes are learned. I am ready to learn more. People change, places change, seasons change. Change is out of our control. However, we can control the impact and effect it leaves in our lives. Be grateful for who you have and what you have. Surround yourself in a positive environment, with good people. Never underestimate yourself or get discouraged, unmotivated. Just remember that things are hard so you can appreciate your success and effort more in the end. Don't settle for comfort, contentment or the familiarity. Why settle for good, when you can settle for something greater.

I am me.

As of right now, I may not be who I want to be, but thank God I'm not who I used to be.

The measure of good life is the accumulation of good memories with good people

       It has been a while since I had a whole day off. Thus, I knew not what to do! Luckily, it turned out to be a great day with the Monster, the Nguyens, the Vo, and the Ngo . They seemed so bored at the house and luckily I came to the rescue ;). Old Navy was the first stop, then we upgraded to the Domain treating ourselves to yogurt dessert first before indulging at North. And no no, we couldn't end the day there. Dinner was served at the house followed by an inevitable food coma. Let's see if I can get next Saturday off so we can go to Houston (hopefully) :)

    Anyway, it's that time again. You know, the End of the semester time. In case you don't know what it is, it consists of:
-Last minute tests  
-sucking up to TA's
-sleep deprivation  
-mi goi

Yet, I love!

When you cheated girl, my heart bleeded girl

Ignore the title, I was jamming to JTimberlake on the way home.

Be appreciative of what you have and who you have. Surrounding yourself with good people in a positive environment is one of the best favors you can do for yourself. Every person has the right to feel happy, but only the lucky few gets to actually be happy...
