Work of Junnie Jadetrin Ranola. @Stain Tattoo. 04-07-2012 (Taken with instagram)
I tend to go with the flow, so I don’t get upset much. I always say that there is no point in getting upset over things you can’t control… you learn from it and move on. I tend to find happiness in small things around me, like looking at the stars, running around in the rain, reading and writing. I guess you can say I’m romantically stimulated. I do what I must in order to survive. People around me describe me as friend that will be there, a dreamer, an out of the box weirdo in my own standards, optimistic, but I describe myself as just Kathy.
We will never understand
Why we hurt our loved ones
Nor Why our love ones hurt us
Or why we feel what we do
But life will never give up on you
They say being strong is all you have to do
But being weak shows us where we fall
And how to fix those mistakes we have done
Don’t try to fix what happened in the past
Or go to your future for something that’s to far ahead of you
Look at what you have now
Change what you need to
And live how you want to
Dont let anyone tell you who you are
Cause you know who you are
A person with feelings
Who doesnt care about what they have lost
But who cares for whats right here in front of them
Mentally Scarred for life.
Usually I spend 3-4 hours at the gym, if I’m really motivated I spend 5-6, ever since I started my membership at LVAC.
-Anywho today I was at the gym around 5 almost 6 in the the evening til 9 something at night.
Everything was great, had a good workout for today until after I hit the showers.
My workout log for today /mostly cardio:
-3.01 miles on the Treadmill
-13.14 miles on the stationary bike for a good hour or so.
-10 mins on the StairMaster
-8 sets of 20 ab crunch
-4 sets of 15 on the Hip Abduction for outer thighs set on 80 lbs weights.
-2 set of 15 on the dip machine for triceps, anterior deltoids set on 75 lbs weights
After working out, usually head for the lockers to grab my facial cleansers , shampoo/conditioner and towel.
Headed to the bathroom to cleanse my face, then after head to the showers.
Took like a quick 5 min shower, grab my towel. Was totally securely wrapped, then BOOM! this lady in her late 40s full on nude bumped into me.
From then on I was totally scarred. It wasn’t just a naked lady…. this lady was over weight, not that I have a problem with over weight people because I do not have a problem with them what so ever. It was just her naked body touched me. Never in my life - I’m scarred for life. There was so much loose skins, and rolls on from her body that came in contact towards me. Her saggy breast literally was touching my face. =( 0_o
-Then she was like “Oh my goodness sweetie, I am so sorry”
And went off to one of the individual shower area like it was nothing.
I am mentally/visually scarred after that incident.
put it into my past
I wish I could go back into the past
So I could fix every mistake
That I’ve ever made
My world isn’t perfect
But who’s really is?
You can hide the truth
Or learn to deal with it
Where would I be if I didn’t know the people I once knew?
Could anyone ever replace them… no, not really.
I can start all over
And forget everything that happened
To put it in my past
And to relax and enjoy life

Yvette Flores’ Baby Shower =]
It is hard to ignore all the negative comments people are saying about you, especially the false accusations people are spreading. Why go out of your way making others look bad. The only person people will avoid is you. No one wants to be around people who only has bad things to say about other people. Especially the lies you had to make up and now no one will ever believe you. People who gossips will eventually become lonely individuals in the end whether what you said was true or not.

Maroon 5 - Goodnight goodnight
Personally, I can interpret this song in a whole different out look then what was on the original music video. Okay, that quoted verse of Maroon 5’s “Goodnight Goodnight” hits home hard.
"I’m sorry, I did not mean to hurt my little girl
It’s beyond me, I cannot carry the weight of the heavy world
So goodnight, goodnight, goodnight, goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight, goodnight
Goodnight, hope that things work out all right, yeah”
Awkward conversation with my aunts
It was brought to my attention that I have a big ass.
My aunt Phayvahn was telling me that Asians with a big ass, is kind of rare, because usually they have a flat butts.
I’m like okay.
Then she continued…for Laotian woman they usually have big set of breast/racks or just descent sets and have no ass.
She pointed out “Damn, Kathy you are just the opposite, you have a nice big butt, yet you have no chest.”
-Kind of offended and told her I do have a chest but it’s not big.
She joked “Kathy are you mix with Buc Dum (That means Black in Lao) or something….because you really do have an ass.”
-It got me to thinking about all the females in my family, both from my mom side (which are all viets) and my dad side (Lao/viet). And realize, all of them have no ass what so ever but have descent set of racks/boobs. 0_o
Then my aunt Sommay was like laughing it off…”Gee, Katt I think your genes just flip the boat, but don’t worry sweetie you can always buy a set of pairs to your liking”
Afterwards I was incomplete silence.
If you want to get somewhere, the most important thing to do is to take the first step. Well… Metaphorically I just stepped into a puddle, but you got to start somewhere…right?
Today got me thinking about the far far future
Today, I tagged along to a high school football game only to support my lil cousin Priscilla cheer-leading. You see, all the elementary school 5-6th grader division cheerleaders was going to that game to support high school football, and cheer along side with the older cheerleaders.
I for one do not follow football what so ever because I don’t understand the whole concept of football or any sport for that matter.
Made me get to thinking…that in the far far far far far far future, if I ever do decide to have kids someday in that long long far future ahead of my time…. and if my future kids decide to get into sport for example such as football…it would suck to have me as their mom. I could image myself being the worst sports mom ever- not being able to follow a game/to be able to even attempt to understand it.
Image myself at a little league sports like football- I’d be the worst. Though I’d be a big supporter who would know nothing.
I been thinking about getting myself a tattoo on my lower wrist, for quiet a while now. I want to honor my grandpa’s family name/surname. Now that I finally have “Phanthavong” in Lao characters, I’m going to do just that when I decide to get inked.
I just want “Phanthavong” as a tattoo in Lao characters, to honor my grandfather who past away before I was born.
I come from a background of Phanthavong, Nguyens, & Tran.
I like to put a lot of ingredients in my pho, mainly because I do not like to eat my pho clear sometimes…so I tend to add a whole lot of flavor to my liking when I’m making myself a bowl at home.
but when I’m at a restaurant I eat it sometimes clear or sometimes i’ll just put in the regular sauce they have like the rooster/,oyster sauce and lil bit of soy sauce and dash of grounded black peppers and the oil chili and the veggies mint,and bean sprout that came with it.
But when I’m at home, and it’s homemade I’ll make myself a bowl and put the same things and pho beef flavor paste and a bit ground chili peppers and dries fried garlic and onion with fresh chopped onions and a whole lot of spices… idk why but I just do. Maybe it’s because I live in a Laotian household, we like a lot of spices in our pho.
