- I met a super nice guy with beautiful eyes and a great sense of humor but all I could think about the entire time was: “Why is he wearing those shoes?” It makes me feel pretentious.
- Scott told me the most princessy thing a girl has ever done to him was Continue reading “[Day 830] Princessy things to do”
Today, I realized that it felt pretty good telling other people that you’re helping your friend move. First, it lets people know that you have friends. Second, it makes you appear to be a great friend. Continue reading “[Day 825] ’90s babies”
Simon asked me to come to a robotics event with him at Google X, the moonshot factory. I was psyched — there’s such an air of secrecy around X. The only problem is that I wasn’t invited. Some friends at X asked around for me but unfortunately, the event was full (s/o to Nick and Stephen for being homies). Simon told me to come anyway. If I couldn’t get in, we’d just grab a drink.
Some friends messaged me that I seemed rather down in my previous blog posts. I appreciate their concern and I’m happy to say that the down phase is over. I’m doing great. I’m feeling great. I rarely have the urge to just lie in bed and do nothing. When that happens, it’s because I’m a bum and not because I’m sad. I even went on a date. I was so awkward that I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t want a second date, but this still made me happy. The butterfly feeling I had in my stomach before the date let me know that I can fall in love again. Continue reading “[Day 822] Dance your way through life”
Jensen Huang invited all interns, 400 of us, to a party at his house. He was as funny as ever. Everyone loved him, though watching him, I had a feeling that he should have a lawyer with him at all time. He was prone to jokes that, while hilarious, weren’t exactly politically correct. HR reminded us about a dozen times that everything was strictly confidential. They walked around telling people to put their phones down when things got out of hand.

After work, I went to this semi cocktail party hosted by an entrepreneurship school in Menlo Park. These schools are everywhere in Silicon Valley. They charge about $5 – 7k for two weeks, without room and board. They attract mostly international startup founders and startup founder wannabes. I joined the husband of the lady who runs the school and his friend. I found out that this school, in particular, has had 4 courses this summer, each course has about 15 students.
“You’re doing quite well, eh?” His friend said, and the man chuckled. Continue reading “[Day 813] Having nothing better to do”
I was feeling like crap today and started compulsively sending messages so alarming that Tucker decided to come over with his girlfriend, Daniela. When they arrived, I told them I didn’t want to talk, but they hung around anyway. I told them they should go out and do the fun things couples do, not stay in this room with someone so moody, but they told me that they were here for me. Tucker and Daniela said all the right things and helped me do the right things. Daniela told me that when Tucker talked about me, she felt like I was the most interesting person ever. Why let anyone change that? Continue reading “[Day 811] A friend in need”
