Ummmmm, so yea it's been like 5 months since my last post on here- actually its been exactly 5 months, to the day! haha sweet- i swear i didnt plan that at all, weird... Anyway so yea um what should i be putting here? Well maybe ill just start from where i left off in my last blog and go from there.

So yea, the rest of april was nice, and then in may i got my new awesome camera Azzy (its a Canon Powershot S5) and yea it totally rocks. So then may and june were fun, went to school, hung out with people, went on a little road trip for a weekend, to the beach a couple times, fishing, swimming, crashed a couple hotel pools one day, dressed up like hippies and tried to start up a commune at my school football field (good times), and slept in a parking lot one night just for the hell of it... you know- the normal stuff.

Haha, so yea after we got all that out of our system and school ended i started my job as a camp counselor. It was so much fun, and the kids were great, and it was just awesome!! Cant wait to do it again next year, its gonna be even awesomer.

So then after camp i brought a whole bunch of the counselors who had been working at my camp with me but who lived in other countries and needed a place to chill until their flights back to my house to hang at my place. We pretty much just had like the best time ever... None of them had ever heard of "Dairy Queen" so i made sure to bring them there- which they loved. Then we spent a lot of time chillin' at my friend's house cuz they have a huge place and a pool so that was fun. We also went to new york city one day, saw the statue of liberty, times square, they got to experience the subway system(lol), it was just a lot of fun. And then aside from that we went fishing, to the zoo, the beach, and just a bunch of other random cool things.

Iris Sophia
Tara(ME!) Sujin

But now they've all left to go back to their respective countries and all my friends are now off at school so im left alone to entertain myself, and get a job- i really need to do that, lol, like soon. So yea i guess that's it for now, hopefully i didnt put you to sleep with my random babble- catchya later.

P.S. be sure to keep up with my vlogs on youtube, ill be posting them semi-regularly from now on (or at least until something happens to make me stop, lol. just kiddin').

Pre-Earth Day Celebration

Lol so yea people Earth Day is right around the corner, april 22th, hooray! So on friday as a pre-celebration for Earth day/ the offical beginning of my spring break, hallelujah, some friends and i "opted out of lessons" for the day, lol, and went to explore nature instead.
It was totally cool cuz we went on this random hike and found this cool, and very terrifying cliff, but it was still totally wicked.

Picture Explanation from starting from left to right:
1. Part of the cliff, ugh it was so high. :X
2. Me sitting on that cliff... because I had lost my mind apparently. (i hate heights)
3. Haha! curtis trying to get a better view of the bottom of the cliff :P
4. Awesome view of northen New Jersey, tis nice- i know. lol

(click to enlarge)

So yea, that's it for that. Yesterday was a pretty cool day. And then tomorrow I'm going into New York City to Central Park to check out the 'Green Apple Festival' they will be having there starting at noon tomorrow. If you're in the area you should totally go, it's gonna be such a nice day, they've got cool bands, and it's totally free so all you have to do is get into the city- which for me means $20 on train tickets, that's ok though, it's going to be totally worth it.

Check out their site for more info:

It's gonna be awesome, hope to see you there.

So bored right now... it's like crazy

Ugh so yea im bored. And since I haven't made a new blog posty thingy in like a long time and I'm sitting in a public library with nothing to do I thought I might update this page a bit.
Well actually that's not totally true. You see if I wanted to I could totally go on my facebook right now, and I really want to, but there's this totally weird guy sitting next to me that keeps spying on my screen (READ THIS LOSER!) so I'm not really feeling like I would want him to see my page. Argh... he's really annoying- and just weird.
So yea anyway, um this week has been decently interesting. Last weekend I went to Outback, an Australian themed resturant chain, twice, lol. Well it was with two different groups but still, it was random. And I had the same waitress both times, which was fun. The first time I was there with my friends she was putting on a really bad fake aussie accent but when I went back with another group of people she had like a really strong 'jersey' accent- haha. It was entertaining. Anyway so yea that was fun, and both times they sang happy birthday to me and gave me free ice-cream, even my bday actually isn't until tomorrow(the 12th).

Hmmm, what else did I do? Oh yea my friend Katie came and stayed at my place overnight, and i know that doesn't seem like its a big deal at all but she lives about an hour away so yea, it was kind of a big thing. Anyway, it was cool even though she's probably one of the most annoying people I've ever had to deal with...(Haha jk Katie- love you). So yea, we chilled, say a really crappy school musical, made a video (duh), went to visit this cool wildlife center by my house and saw all the little cutie animals, took the train back to her town (while i annoyed all our fellow train riders with my less than excellent ukulele playing, lol), and then once we were in her town we got some awesome macadameia (wahhh?) cookies and then walked to her place. *sigh* Good times.
And then the rest of this week has been pretty normal/boring. You know, school and all that. Except that today I kind of got bored of school so I "peaced" (it means left :]) with some friends and spent the afternoon playing guitar hero and wrestling some dogs. And now I'm just sitting in the library waiting for time to pass by so I can go home without seeming like i cut school. So yea, don't tell my parents. :D Thanks

Hasta luego,

Tara's new best friend= Bruce!

Hehe so yea like the title of this blog says- i have a new best friend. So now you're all probably saying to yourselves, good for you Tara, way to develop those social skills. But no. This new best friend is no boy- it's my brand new ukulele (see picture). Isn't he pretty?? Hehe, i love him so much.
So sure I don't know any actual songs yet, or even any chords, or notes. And I mean sure, he's not properly tuned so it sounds a bit off and for some reason I can't seem to figure out the correct way to strum anything but oh well! I'm working on it- k?

Ok then, that's all I wanted to say. Oh and hope you guys enjoyed the "Lice!" video that I finally put up. Again, don't worry people- I don't have lice, lol. Although I really do appreciate all the concern, you guys are the best.


Oh and- new video on tuesday ok? Or maybe Wensday, I'm not sure. Don't hold me to anything... lol

Happy Easter, sorry about the Lice. :P

Hey everyone just wanted to pop a message onto here wishing you all a very Happy Easter and all the best- God Bless.

Oh and sorry that I didn't post the "Lice" video but I just thought it would be a bit more fitting to put up an Easter. Hopefully I'll post it sometime next week, probably Wensday.

Lice, 1 yr Tubaversary, St. Patty's Day, Free Tibet!

So yea you probably read the title of this one and went, wtheck?! Lol. Anywho, thank you so much to everyone who participated in my one year collab, that is everyone but nat cuz i just dont like her (joking)... kinda.

So St. Patty's Day yesterday was pretty freakin' sweet. I went into the city for the day, on a school trip- i didn't cut, technically. Anyway, we drove around for a bit and stopped off for lunch like a block away from the United Nations (UN) building so some of the kids and i decided to walk down there and check it out. It was really cool, although we couldn't get in so inside I just took some pictures of the flags. :)

(click to enlarge)

And then across the street from that there was a Free Tibet rally so we joined up with them, which made our teacher very happy. It was really great and we all had a lot of fun.

Oh yea and the lice. No I don't have lice and neither does anyone around me- anymore. My step-sis had lice a few weeks ago so we stayed away from them for like a month, lol, but now everything's cool so no worries. The only reason I mention it is because I made a video about it back when it was happening so I thought I would use it now as my next video. Expect to see it somewhere around Thursday or Friday, probably Friday though. Hope you enjoy it.
