College Confession #87

My boyfriend broke up with me out of the blue, shortly after I’d turned 19. His four roommates, around the same time, had started to get annoyed with him about other stuff, and they were all buddies of mine as we’d partied together in residence. So I go out to the strip club one night with a couple girlfriends and run into those guys and they start shit talking my ex, telling me I deserve better. My already drunk self allows them to buy me a ton of tequila shots. Enough that I get up on stage and take off all my clothes, participating in amateur night. This is extremely out of character for me because I am a fairly innocent honors student who doesn’t drink very much. So anyway, I win the $500 cash prize for the night and the ex walks in, to meet his roommates, as I’m up on stage getting my prize.

He then decided to tell me how embarrassing that was for him, as if expecting an apology for me having fun but I refused to give it. Fast forward to a year and a half later where I have a new, great guy in my life, and he still tries to get me to hook up with him every few weeks.

I competed in a beat battle last Friday in front of 300 people and producers Ryan Lewis and Sango last Friday. I lost in the second round. The winner got a cash prize and a slot at Upstream Festival next month.

I was upset that I lost but the people I met that night and the doors it opened up for me were worth it.

Then, as I was leaving, the event organizers pulled me aside and told me that they were going to try to still put me in the festival. I was taken back, for I just expected them to contact me for a future gig, not get me my own set. I was doubtful they would get me in, but I received a text that night from them telling me that I, chong the nomad, will be in the lineup for Seattle’s Upstream Festival in Pioneer Square.

It took me a while to get there, but I’m performing a set with my music in a fucking huge festival next month.

I have no idea where the future is going, but for once, it looks so bright.

Lucky - Jeff Atkins

Haiii!! I love your blog BTW! May I please have a Jeff Atkins imagine where y/n is a really good singer so as a surprise, he goes to one of her performances (she sings at Monet’s as a job) and he starts cheering for her being so supportive? (If you do characteristics of the reader, can you make her darkskin, Ie, big puffy hair, “her chocolate skin seemed to shine under the lights”) if that is okay. And lastly, can she be singing any song of your choice! Thank you!-

hey b! thank you! so i basically did it but minus the characteristics just because i like to write it as neutral as i can! the song is lucky by jason mraz, i hope you enjoy!

“You really can’t make it?” i said, sighing into the phone.

i put my guitar into the case as i switched my phone to my other ear.

“I told you, baseball practice is running late because Monty didn’t show. I’m so sorry babe.” jeff sighed into the phone, i could hear that he was upset.

i took a deep breath before answering him, “Well it’s the thought that counts. I’m still gonna do great so sadly, you’ll have to miss another amazing performance.” 

he laughed before responding, “I’m sure I can get you to play me a song later. Good luck, you’re gonna kill it.” 

i smiled a bit, he is always so supportive. “I will. Have fun at practice!”

we said our goodbyes and i ended the call and finished getting ready.

monet’s was having an open mic night with a little bit of a cash prize and i knew there was no harm in at least trying. 

on my way over, i was still a little upset that jeff was going to miss another performance. everyone wants their significant other cheering them on when they do something they love. 

i settled down and watched the acts who were also amazing. once it was my turn jeff still wasn’t here.

i pouted a bit but hey, the show must go on.

i grabbed my guitar and as i got on stage. i quietly set up.

i starting the beginning of lucky by jason mraz and right before the chorus hit i heard the bell ring above the door.

i keep you with me in my heart, you make it easier when life gets hard. i looked over and smiled wide at him.

he gave me a thumbs up and stood to the side of the stage grinning. 

lucky I’m in love with my best friend
lucky to have been where I have been
lucky to be coming home again
i’m lucky we’re in love in every way
lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
lucky to be coming home someday

and i finished the rest of the song and heard jeff cheering the loudest. i hopped off the stool and walked over to him hugging him tightly.

he grabbed my guitar from me and hugged back, squeezing me tightly. 

he mumbled into my hair, you did amazing babe.

i smiled and pulled back, “i thought practice was running late?”

“i ran some extra laps to leave early, coach knew i came to practice early.” he said kissing my head. “Plus, I needed to see this beautiful performance from my beautiful singer.”

i smiled even more and hugged him again, “Well, lucky I’m in love with my best friend, right?”

he laughed, “Extra lucky.”

Harry Houdini vs. the Ghost Whisperers,

Today it’s not uncommon for popular magicians to devote their time debunking woo peddlers and bullshit artists like psychics, faith healers, quack doctors, and others selling fakery in order to make a quick and easy buck.  Some examples that easily come to mind are magicians such as Penn and Teller and or course James “The Amazing” Randi.  The tradition of magicians debunking con artists goes back to the legendary Harry Houdini, who in the 1920′s made it a personal crusade to shut down spiritualists who claimed to be able to communicate with the dead.

In the late 19th and early 20th century spiritualism was reaching the height of its popularity.  Spiritualists claimed that they could communicate with the dead, often through a ritual called a seance. People would sit around a table in a dark room with a medium, and during the seance odd events would happen. The table would move without any noticeable force acting on it, weird sounds would be emitted from the walls, sometimes strange lights and apparitions would appear, or people could feels phantom objects brushing up against them. The medium would then convey a message from a dead loved one, and with all the paranormal things that occurred a client, who often paid a large sum of money, was left doubtless that the whole event was legit. As a result, spiritualist mediums became superstars of the day, and thousands of people believed that they were the real deal.

Harry Houdini despised mediums, recognizing their fraudulent methods as mere tricks and carny trash. Houdini himself once dabbled in spiritualism, but quit when he found using trickery to take money from grieving people extremely distasteful.  Houdini was also a grieving man who had a close relationship with his mother who passed away in 1913. It angered him to no end that such flim flammers, con artists, and frauds were preying upon innocent people who just wanted to talk to their loved ones again. Thus, in the 1920′s Houdini set out on a personal crusade to expose the mediums as humbuggery. 

Thus in the 1920′s Houdini cut back on his magic and escape acts and being hosting special shows where he would expose mediums. He did this by offering a cash prize if any medium could prove that their claims were true.. Often the medium would come on stage in front of an audience, demonstrating his or her powers and creating wondrous supernatural feats.  Houdini would then come on stage and replicate those feats with equal of even better quality, then reveal how they were done. It was through this method that Houdini was able to debunks dozens of popular spiritualist mediums, as well as other tricksters like Jaquin Argamasilla, a Spanish man who claimed he could see the numbers on dice through a box with his “X-ray eyes”.

Unfortunately Houdini’s crusade against the mediums cost him one of his best friends, author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who was a passionate believer in spiritualism. Doyle believed that Houdini was a genuine medium who was using his powers to eliminate his competition. 

Today in celebration of Houdini’s crusade, magicians often hold mock seances in honor of Houdini.  Houdini’s offering of cash prizes would also become inspiration for James Randi’s “Million Dollar Challenge”, which is offered to anyone who has paranormal or supernatural claims. No one has every successfully claimed the prize.

This one day holiday suck

My school is crap, they never think how burden for the student who lives 400 miles away from home,

It tooks 5 hours journey back and forth by bus, and they holiday was only from 20th to 22nd.
20th we left school about 4Pm, arrived the station around 9 to 10PM. We only spent only a day with a family and close friend nearby, which isnt enough, with tons of homeworks they asked us to do.

But honestly i never did one of the homework because i think the report need to analysis, not using my logical ideas. And I havent gone out to analyse the enterprise logo for my assignment because i have to go medical checkup. I hope this excuses will accept to my art teacher.

And the other thing, my school should have extended the holiday until monday because this monday is a public holiday for malaysian (idk if other country has it as well). But my school principal force us to come back to school this Saturday (which is today in my time) and attend school by tomorrow, if the student come back late they will mark as absent for no reason.
Which is really frustrating for a student who lives very far, that they need to come back to school before 6pm. If they late for just an hour, they will get blacklisted for having an outing with their family on weekends .

So yeah, im just ranting about my school. Which i really hate it so much because the system works are unacceptable. And one thing is my school is a scam as well, they took all the cash prizes from the student who have won the art contest, i was one of them as well. And i really dont want to participate any art contest under my school’s name because of that.

Bleh, enough of this talk.
My parents and I right now is dealing with the bus deiver

“I don’t know Ji-yeon I don’t think I’d make a great partner for that.” I said shutting my locker and throwing my books in my bag. “Can’t you find someone else?”

“Come on Y/N the grand prize is almost $3,000, imagine if we win,” Ji-yeon groaned shaking my arm in frustration. “Please I’ll even pay for your fee to enter.” I rolled my eyes about to give her another no in response until I heard the first period bell ring and I shot her a smirk,

“Got to get to class don’t want to be late!” I teased pushing my way through the hundreds of students filling the halls. I heard her shouting over the crowd and I proudly smiled to myself for getting out of another one of her schemes she wanted me to partake in. Although Ji-yeon was my best friend, she certainly always got both of us into trouble. Back in freshman year she somehow managed to convince me to sneak into a bar with a fake ID she bought off some guy she met outside the mall, needless to say it obviously didn’t work and we were both grounded for the rest of the school year. Ever since then her shenanigans have gotten crazier and this idea just sounded like trouble to me. I made it to the English building and found my classroom, I made a beeline to my desk and got all my materials I needed for the period as the final bell rang signaling the start of class.

“Good morning class please turn to page 147 on your book, you will be working on this worksheet today,” Mrs. Kim announced, “Also I have the flyers for this years Senior Assassin competition, the prize is pretty big this year so take advantage.” My head shot up from my book and I waited patiently for a flyer to get around to my desk.

This is what Ji-yeon was talking about…

Grabbing it I scanned it reading the rules and details.

Senior Assassin Competition

Rules: You and your partner will be assigned two targets and you must eliminate them by shooting them with a nerf gun, you must do this outside of safe zones. Last team standing wins the cash prize.

Safe zones: School property, jobs, homes.

Please turn in the fee to participate by Friday. Targets for each team will be released on Monday. Good luck everyone!

“You gonna do it?” My classmate Yerin spoke up next to me getting my attention. I shrugged my shoulders, “I’m not so sure, Ji-yeon wants me to be her partner but I think I’ll pass.”

Best Pun Ever

Mallory and Mark Kensington were two star struck lovers who had been married for 12 years. Mallory was a commercial airline pilot and Mark was the captain of a nuclear submarine. They were both very responsible with their money, lived simply, had no children, and no vices. The only exception to their frugality was their dog Max whom they doted on at every possible occasion. Unfortunately for Max, fate had terrible plans in store for him. One dark August day, Mallory and Mark were both at their respective jobs and in a cruel twist of fate suffered major mechanical failures at the same time. In a million to one oddity, they both perished in the astonishing first-of-its-kind airplane/submarine accident.

Let me tell you guys the story of what happened today.

I participated in a competition at my college called “Dolphin Tank”, which was supposed to resemble the Shark Tank show (though it didn’t for several reasons; I think it was just marketing). Essentially, teams of students had 5 minutes to pitch their company to judges to win one of three cash prizes of up to $1,000. Naturally, everyone who presented was a Business Management major except for myself (physics and chemistry). But there were only 9 teams who presented, so I had a ⅓ shot of winning a prize.

Frankly, there were a couple ideas that were highly nonviable (collided too much with legal restrictions and/or technical promises hard to fulfill) or had so much market saturation (ahem, restaurants) that there’s no way they were going to get backing. So my chances seemed pretty good.
