Bay Area Menu Files: Spaghetti Sunday!

Selfies are just a matter of working your angles and lighting. (:

I interrupt your daily activities with a message from a fan girl who can’t keep it together.

OMGGGGGGGG~ JYJ. BACKSEAT! SERIOUSLY?! Ugh. These guys are killing me. I’m just so happy they’re back giving us music. 

The Just Us Album is killing me. DEAR J. Creation. 

What is life? Excuse me while I listen to this on repeat for the next several days. 

Interesting note of pattern: my two favorite songs atm both have the word “BACK” in it. 

YOUNGDAL! WHERE DID YOU GET TIME TO FILM A MV?! 

Thank you for listening to this Public Service Announcement. Please resume your daily activities.

(Focus! FOCUS! Oh, who am I kidding?)

"In consideration, every experience on an airplane is my worst. Why? SLEEP DEPRIVATION. I cannot sleep on moving vehicles, especially large, moving vehicles that are super loud. And airplanes are not comfortable. They are either too hot or too cold. There’s never sufficient leg room and trying to go to the restroom is a pain in the ass. I like traveling, but I don’t like planes."

FACT: For the first time in my entire life, I got hit on.. at the mall.

At first I thought he was asking for directions.

He paid me a compliment and called me cute.

I noticed how young he looked. My first impression: he’s pretty cute. Soon afterwards, it was along the lines of “are you even legal? Is this some stupid dare between you and your friends?”

I said “thank you” and he responded with a “Wow, you speak better English than I thought.” And that’s when I stopped thinking he was cute.

"I was born here." I laugh sheepishly and proceed to turn away.

"Wait," he said. "Really? Wait, I didn’t get your name!"

"That’s because I didn’t give it to you." I responded. He gave me his name and we shook hands. And then the bullshit continues. "I thought you were from China or some shit. Are you sure you’re not from another country?"

By this point, I rolled my eyes and stifled an exasperated laugh. “No.. I’m pretty sure I know where I was born. And it was here.”

"Are you sure you didn’t move here from another state?!"

I had enough. I laughed it off and walked away.

It wasn’t until I finished ordering my drink at the food court when I thought to myself, ‘Oh shit, I hope this isn’t those hidden cameras. I better not see myself on Youtube.’
