Hello there,

If you have read the last post and reflected on it, like I have, you must be confused and kind of curious. Well, I'd like to clear a few things up with all of you.

First thing, I do not just go out and about and buy the nicest Nike's on the block. It takes months of preparation. Months full of asking, begging, convincing, all that fun stuff. I do not just ask my dad, "Hey dad, can I get some new shoes?" NOPE, THAT'S ALIEN TERRITORY I'M GETTING MYSELF INTO IF I ASK HIM THAT QUESTION.

Second thing, I want to put an emphasis on the "Convincing" part. Thank you school, for teaching me how to write a persuasive essay and use convincing words to persuade my reader.

I give much thought and detail into what I say to my parents when it's time to get some new pick-ups.

1. I have old, worn-out shoes that don't fit me.

I sometimes tell them, "Man, my shoes are worn-out and are tight on me."

And they usually go, "Just wear them it's not a big deal, anak" (anak is a Filipino word for child, or son or daughter)

2. I worked really hard for them.

I also tell them "Dad, mom, I've been working really hard this past year, I got straight As, (no A minuses), I made the team, and I have doing hours and hours and hours of sweeping the floor for rice."

And they tell me, "Don't worry, it will all pay off in the end."

I guess it will.

3. I only have one pair.


4. I don't have a pair.

"Mom I don't even have a pair of shoes!"


Anyway, I guess I'm not the ASIAN PERSUASION after all.

But with a year full of these handy persuasions, you too, can get one pair of shoes. You may be confused too, like "I have 7 pairs, that's nothing to me." Well, one pair is worth a lot of value to me.
Don't be going around like Lawson and generalizing the people who go to Foot Locker. The people who go to Foot Locker are dreamers, believers, and buyers. I, for one, am a dreamer. It's crazy how some people have a wall of Jordans in their bedroom.

My point is, I don't get shoes easily.

Maybe we all need a pair sometimes.

Make Money


Who here has attempted to make some money because there is something you just...REALLY want? I'm sure most of you who are reading this has. What I really want right now, are Air Jordan Retro ones. I told Luke that we needed to make some money quick because I wanted those shoes really bad and he tells me that he just got a similar pair. I really don't care that he got some new shoes that I wanted but what pisses me off is that his dad just GETS it for him at FOOT LOCKER!

  I'm pissed because my parents just don't get me shoes from Foot Locker. I wish they did, there's a huge variety of shoes to choose from. Do you know where my mom gets me my shoes? Nordstrom Rack.

What can you find at Nordstrom Rack? Nothing. Dual fusion.

I went to Nordstrom with my dad the other day, I tried to get him to buy me a pair of free runs. He goes, "how much?"
Me, "90!"
Him, "Sale?"
Me, "no"
I'm like are you kidding me, the ones that go on sale aren't even good.

BTW, I am actually pretty grateful that my mom does get me shoes from Nordstrom Rack. It's better than Goodwill or somewhere else. (just in case she reads this)

Ok, lets get back on track, I was talking about making money. $$$ I really like to buy stuff. The only problem is that I don't get enough money. I don't have allowance, I don't have a job; the only way for me to make money is...Chinese New Year. I don't even get that much on Chinese New Year. It is not enough to bring me pleasure. That is why, I've recently been trying to make some money. I've actually been trying to make money, not really been trying, but creating ideas to make money since second grade.

I use to live right by a golf course and I wanted to sell snacks and drinks to the golfer. This was second grade. I didn't do it. I should've. Then, in sixth grade, I had the idea of creating an app for the iphone. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Super Hard! I went to ID tech camp to learn programming and it was too complex for my brain to handle. Now, I have been creating more ideas to make some money.

I have learned that to be successful, you need to do and not just create ideas. Even though Luke and my motto is "no idea is a stupid idea", you still have to make it happen, like what your parents did...

P.S. We will release the new idea/company once everything is set. We are currently in the process of putting everything together. It is not easy creating a company as kids. 

P.S to the P.S. (P.S. squared?) : Have any of you ever thought about starting a new company? If so, tell us about the idea. Comment below!!!

EFC VS. PAC Results

Du hullo dehr,

From the much expected hype brought to the table at our soccer game, it was wasted with the result of Eastside FC (Lawson) and Pacific Northwest Soccer Club (Me), of a boring tie. 

The game, itself, was not boring, but the result was. If your not much into soccer, I'll keep it short. 

Both our teams played a hard-fought game and you literally see the soccer ball shifting from one half of the field to the other. Some key highlights from this game was the MISSED (big emphasis on the missed) penalty kick and a bad offsides call.

If you do not know was a penalty kick is, it's basically when you get a free kick at exactly 12 yards of the field because of a foul inside a a box. There are no interferences and it is only the player who takes the PK (penalty kick) and the goalkeeper. You can describe this to a free throw in basketball, or maybe a field goal attempt in football. Anywho, the person on Lawson's team  struck the ball on the ground fairly well, but not well enough. Our goalkeeper saved the ball from going into the goal which afterwards gave us the motivation to move on.

The other call, the offsides call, was also a key highlight. I don't want to explain too much of what OFFSIDES is because it could get boring, so I'll keep it short. (Like I always do NOT) Anyway, the referee called a stupid call that could have allowed us to score easily.

But in the end, no one got bragging rights. Lawson and I kept smiling at each other like idiots on the field because of our tight ninger relationship. (Refer to our very first posts to see what a ninger is) 

I also was smiling because Lawson tried to slide tackle me but did not do so and failed miserably. 

In conclusion, it was a great game that heightened tensions between Lawson's team and I and was a mini-reunion of great future CEOs and entrepreneurs of soon-to-be famous Asian Occasion.

Eastside FC vs PACNWSC

This weekend, our soccer teams will play each other, me and Luke. As you may know, I met Luke from soccer. You may be wondering, how do you start a company from a soccer team? I don't even know but I'm really glad it worked! I left the team last year and transfered to Eastside FC. Luke stayed on "GRFC" that turned into PACNWSC. You may be asking, "WHAT IN THE HEL-ENA DOES PACNWSC STAND FOR?!?!" I know, it's dumb and long but it stands for Pacific (PAC) Northwest (NW) Soccer Club (SC). The FC in Eastside FC stands for football club, it's more official, as you can tell. The whole world calls it football.
Anyways, we will be playing each other at Starfire this weekend. I'm super PUMPED!!! Luke or I will post the result as soon as we can after the game. Bye

Cool Stuff #1


You guessed it, another new series. You may be thinking, "here we go again. What could this series be about?" I'd hate to say it but you guessed it again, COOL STUFF!!! 
This brand new series will be about cool stuff. enough said

Today, I will be showing you this thing that I saw on Facebook. The world's quietest room. 
It is called the "anechoic chamber." It is located at Orfield Laboratories. You may be asking, "WTF, how can a room be the quietest?" The answer, its walls absorb 99% of the sound. 
You may predict that I will predict what your questions may be. 
You might be asking, "but how? I'm so confused"    
I tell you, it has three foot thick fiberglass wedges and insulated walls. 

Some guy went in it for a few minutes. He later reported that your body adapts to the environment by gradually picking up smaller and smaller sounds. He said that he could hear his heart beat, your lungs working, and your stomach gurgling. 

People become disoriented and start hallucinating in the room. 

I'm pretty much just paraphrasing the important sentences but if you want to read more, here:

Current Events #2 B

Hello sir or madam,

As you may know, tomorrow is election day. You may think that this is not relevant to you but it can be. Wait, hode dup, it's will be relevant to you. You may ask why? Say it, "why?" Oh my Goodness, you just asked the wisest question you could in the history of questions. The answer- we are students, (no offense if you're a drop out) and both the president and Romney have different approaches when it comes to education.

Obama: Wants to focus on math and science because he is hiring 100,000 more math and science teachers for the next 10 years. Will continue supporting his Race to the Top program. (read more about Race to the Top here:
Will cut post-secondary (college, etc) tuition cost and help with loans. Goal is to have the highest proportion of students graduating from post-secondary schools by 2020.

Romney: Wants to improve educational offerings. Gives families more freedom in choosing schools based of its performance. Will reform No Child Left Behind program to better schools' performance. Has no goals but will work with both state and private sectors to better academic performance.

If you would like to know more about the two candidates and their plans for education, click on the following:

This is a lot more that I didn't cover but as you can see, this can, and will affect us. My point has been made. Bye.

How to Make an Essay Sound Good

Hello all,

Today I will be sharing with you some tips I sometimes use to make my ESSAYS look impressive.

Duh Step Number 1- Do your paragraphs look small and puny? Immensify them by raising the font up to 13, or 14 for the extremists.

Duh Step Number 2- Use transitions. You may already know this, but always use transitions at the beginning at the end of a paragraph. Words like LASTLY, and FIRST OFF, and IN CONCLUSION make an essay sound organized and neat.

Duh Step Tree- Double-space. Make the space between lines of words larger. Increase the space between lines to 1.15 or 1.5. It won't necessarily make your essay sound smart, but it will seem longer.

Fore- Use big words. Words that will make you sound duh SMART! Words like fastidious, beneficial, benevolent, imperative, bourgeois, zeitgeist, and precedent.

FIVE- Always proofread. Make your parents read it, older siblings read it, or simply use Microsoft Word spell check. It's a big turnoff to teachers when you spell a word, or words, wrong. It's like when you want to impress a girl and you bring homemade frog legs to school for lunch. (Sorry, that's just me)

And duh Six- Be CONFIDENT. Always be confident. Even if you think you're doing something wrong, just be confident. It's better to express a stupid idea than no idea.

That's all I have to say, really. I hope you can use these tips to your advantage.
