earth day 2012 + uci dayy!
helping out the sgv water district, i can say, was pretty successful. we had plenty of hands, especially during the first 2 hours- that was a massive influx of people decide to take free stuff or try to take things away..speaking of that, i encountered 2-3 really, really annoying elderly woman. we gave out these big, blue reusable totes, and when they arrived, we ran out. those dbs scolded/ yelled at me, in cantonese, because they “waited for so long”, while i repeatedly told them we
fuckin ran out. one of them even crossed her arms and stood there like a stubborn mule. we had plastic bags and they were just as handy, like some people just took them and left. what i should’ve done was not explain we ran out and then apologize, but bitch back at them in english. about how today is earth day, the purpose of the event, and ways to help out the environment. and then tell them to leave, in cantonese… in the end, we had to take them from the volunteers, who saved them for themselves. other than that, our advisor, dave, was really easy to talk to. i like him, haha. but he left at 12, so we were in charge. michelle came! less than half an hour later, she left to go find food… -___- at 11:30, regina & kenny arrived. it’s funny how regina called michelle and kenny called me at the same time. yah, so when they all arrived, it was better ! i had people to talk to : [ . we had a verryy interesting&funnayz conversation. then one by one, we all left, except for kenny, who needed to help cwang&thomas clean up. irvine has a really great environment; plenty of trees= shade. but because it’s also uci day, everyone was pretty much confined in one area ! i didn’t like that. there were clubs selling food, so it reminded me of keppel’s food festival…zenni and i ended up walking around the campus, which was really big and empty. let’s just say the most exciting part was checking out the restrooms…but overall, the campus is nice, but i guess bad day, bad time so it was also quiet. the rooms are okay, too! roomy enough for two people. zenni and i accidentally walked in on a guy, who was checking himself out?, in the restroom..zenni’s cousin swiped us some dinner !! good food, not bad. i like their fries :3 ooo, and there was also funnel cake boy, who wore these awesome shades and was ,obviously, selling funnel cake. he can serve me one, but too bad i didn’t buy a funnel cake from him.. : (
