Jumbo's Quote of the Day!


"Have you had a kindness shown? Pass it on; 'Twas not given for thee alone,... Let it travel down the years; Let it wipe another's tears, 'Till in Heaven the deed appears--Pass it on."

~Rev. Henry Burton~

46 miles baby! :)

I went biking this past Monday 46 miles to the Azusa mountains with a group of friends and I'm still pumped about it!

It's the longest distance I have ever ridden on a bicycle :)

Now the fun part is going to be breaking the record, hopefully I'll get my chance this Sunday when (fingers crossed) we bike out to the beaches.

Anyway part of why the trip was so great was because of the fantastic weather and location, I could go on and on about how gorgeous the scenery and the ride was -- the mountains are definitely the place to go for a bike ride, everything is just so fresh and isolated...

The next time we bike to the Azusa mountains me and the gang are going to try and make it past the initial peaks of the hills and to this biking trail.

It's going to be an adventure :D I can't wait! Plus I heard that it is also extremely gorgeous so I'm really looking forward to seeing it.

One thing I learned from this trip is to be PREPARED. Even if you start the day thinking your only going to bike ten miles or something light like that it's always good to be safe and pack some energy bars and nut mixes and lots of water -- you never know when your going to need the energy.

This time around I was very lucky, one of my friends brought enough food with him to have several delectable picnics -- and we did hahaha :)

All in all, it was AWESOME and such a nice change from the mundane routines of homework, homework, homework...If you own a bike I strongly encourage you to take it out of your garage, closet, attic, or where ever your hiding it away and take it for a ride!
You will be so happy you did trust me, by the end of it you might even be feeling something like that biking warrior chick in the above picture, I know I did hehehe :)

Oh dear!

The winter semester is starting to get extremely hectic...this last test that I took today has me a little worried -- gulp!
I counted all the questions that I absolutely didn't understand, included a few I was unsure about, and then calculated what my total grade would be and the answer wasn't very pretty :( boo hoo!
It's a B or less if I calculated correctly.

Normally getting a B on a test wouldn't be such a bad thing because professors always drop the lowest grade but in the winter semester where you take 6 tests and the tests are worth 54% of your grade a B on a test can make or break your GPA.

On brighter news though, I did get an A on my first test so that's good :)
I just need to make sure that for the rest of the semester (4 weeks) I continue to push, and push, and push for those A's.

I knew there were a couple of things I wasn't completely sure about going into that test but there just wasn't enough time to study them with all the home work our teacher gave out.

So I have some delightful news aside from all the Winter Semester drama...

This Summer I plan on doing an engineering internship for undergraduate students at Cal State LA! Woo hoo! I'm totally excited!! I'm finally going to get to see a little bit of what Engineer students do after they graduate :D

I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to be doing but I will certainly keep you updated on the going-ons and how it all turns out...

In the meanwhile I am going to enjoy a nice little break and then get back to homework...
