HI! [06 Sep 2009|02:49am]
I leave for Halifax again on Tuesday. LAME!
I totally don't want to leave at all. I really don't want to go back to school either. YUCK!
I'm going to finish each line of this entry with some sort of emphatic yell. WOOT!
This summer was pretty awful. Really short, as well. BOO!
However, the short few weeks in Windsor were out-of-this-world awesome. YAY!
Surprisingly, I met quite a few new people. And catching up with old friends is probably the coolest thing ever. SWEET!
Well, hello seven consecutive semesters of school and co-op; goodbye life. ARGH!
This is going to be stressssssful. BLAH!

Well, it certainly has been quite a while.
I don't even know who's on here anymore.
So, hello to all you who read this!
Hopefully I'll be able to keep posting regularly.

so i got really bored the other night
and i miss home
so i wanted to get some mail from people at home. so, i did what i thought was necessary and this is what i got:

Mail Mike First!

Contest Rules:
1. Write me a letter, buy me a little gift (don't go crazy though folks), draw me a picture with your little sibling's crayons and then mail it to me.
2. If you don't have my mailing address, message me and I'll gladly give it to you!
3. Be creative!
4. The first person to mail me something (and I have to receive it first) will be considered one of the coolest people in the world by me! Folks, that is one major accomplishment, so be excited! Also, you will receive a prize when I return to Windsor!
5. In case of a tie, then you're lucky because I just want you guys to send me stuff! You'll all be winners.
6. I have the right to buy the crappiest reward ever.

it's been a while [22 Sep 2006|10:59pm]
so it has been quite the while since my last update. so let's try to recap my life.
cross country started this first week of school, so i'm running everyday.
geometry is killing me; so is chem and so is english.
i got a job at a&w at tecumseh mall; come visit me?? yeaaaa.
um.. i'm probably going to be drumming instead of playing guitar now for my band.
and that's about it. my life's pretty boring.

peace out gangstaaaaaaas

pain is your friend [03 Sep 2006|12:06am]
"pain is your friend. pain tells you that you're still alive."

i saw world trade center tonight. it was good, yet horrifying. it was painful to watch it all again, seeing the lists of firefighters and police officers that were killed, and seeing all the heroism (is that a word) that went on that day. i wanted to cry and i almost did. that's right, i almost cried. mainly at the end tho, when all the names went scrolling by. it was sad.
production wise, it was a good movie. it was a little slow in the middle, but it did set a good and appropriate mood. when i went in, i knew what it was about because i saw all the previews and stuff, but still it was sorta different than i expected, yet still similar to what was expected. it is a true story tho, so i guess the imagination can't go too far without straying from the truth too much. oh well. i enjoyed the movie.
that's all that was exciting today cuz that's all i did.

peace out all,

p.s. i sold out and went myspace style.. check it out.. http://www.myspace.com/mikeshih

on a little more clearer note, last night, i read some verses that really hit me and made me think.

Proverbs 16:9 "We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps."
Proverbs 16:33 "We may throw the dice, but the Lord determines how they fall."

That really hit me because it just showed me that God is in control and all you gotta do is give up everything to Him. and i think i really need to work on that. but the verses were really cool to read.

again, you can share thoughts if you please

alright guys & girls. i need your help.
so i was reading in proverbs the other day. and i came across a couple of verses that kinda puzzled me for a second. then i checked them out in the NIV bible (i use new living translation) and things didn't get much clearer, if at all. i really don't like my nlt bible b/c the translation is sorta dumbed down so low, that you lose a lot in translation. kinda.
so here we are:
Proverbs 14:4 "An empty stable stays clean, but no income comes from an empty stable." -- NLT
Proverbs 14:4 "Where there are no oxen, the manger is empty, but from the strength of an ox comes an abundant harvest." -- NIV

and then there was

Proverbs 14:13 "Laughter can conceal a heavy heart; when the laughter ends, the grief remains." -- NLT
Proverbs 14:13 "Even in laughter the heart may ache, and joy may end in grief." -- NIV

1. how would you interpret the first verse (Proverbs 14:4)?
2. what does the second verse really mean?
3. can joy really end in grief? i always thought was ever lasting happiness. happiness can come to an end, but i thought joy was eternal. like the joy of knowing God is never ending, because you get to spend eternity in heaven and such. you know? yea. so i'm kinda lost here.

thoughts? please share

real last day [19 Aug 2006|11:18pm]
so i guess we're in a hotel again tonight and i have internet access once more. tomorrow i shall be home. which means i'll be back on my normal computer, which probably means my livejournal will be blocked :(

but oh well. today, we drove about 8 hours or so.. maybe a bit more. we were on the road for a long time, but that includs rest stops and stuff. we dropped off jonathan and his grandma at about 8 then came looking for a hotel. then we ate dinner, watched flight 93, then "anatomy of 9/11" .. kinda scary to watch the towers fall again .. eek. um. then just chilled on the computer, talking and such.

i have the urge to write. but i don't have anyhting to write about. i wanna get home to play my guitar.

peace it

p.s. i guess my brother had to break into our house yesterday cuz he locked himself out. he broke in through my window. i feel really safe now.

the last day [18 Aug 2006|09:25pm]

today will likely be my last day of livejournal. i might get on once at home and post some pictures. otherwise, if you want to see any pictures of nova scotia parties, then you'll have to check out my msn space.
today we drove from 8pm (nova scotia time, 7 here time) - 8pm .. so really, 13 hours. horrid. katie and aunt karen left for one of katie's horsie clinics at 6 this morning (again nova scotia time, i'm still used to ontario time, so it would have been 5 am). so i woke up when they left. i'm a tired dude. tomorrow is about an 8 hour drive i think.
we're staying in some cool fancy quebec hotel tonight. other than good food, i don't really like quebec. i get home on sunday. i wanted to get home SO badly tomorrow to see courtney, but that's not happening *tears all around*

on a positive note, i have become pretty much booked solid with hang outs and recordings this coming week. the new program will go on the computer on sunday and i will be recording monday, tuesday, wednesday, probably.. band practice on monday. woohoo. can't wait. i miss my electric guitar with a deep burning passion. i'm never leaving it again. haha.

on another positive note, protest the hero = amazingest band alive. i'm in love.

hmm.. that's all i have to tell you about today. today wasn't that exciting. neither was yesterday.

p.s. best quote of trip = jonathan to katie: "I don't want to sit here. and you have fur."

rock and roll [16 Aug 2006|11:08pm]
so today was probably one of the sweetest days out here in good ol' n.s. besides protest night of course =P
lets see. last night, the dog took over my bed, so i got to sleep on the last 3 feet of my bed, lying perpindicular to the bed haha. but it was okay. i slept not too bad, considering all things. woke up, went to cora's with fam & katie.. best breakfast ever. then we got home, me and katie went biking. tackled that lake like it was nothing. haha. she wouldn't let me bike up the big hill :( oh well.. haha, it's probably best for us. don't wanna die and all. when we got back, we went to the beach. which was totally sweet. then we came home and we all took turns showering and washing all the icky sand off. then i went out in the garage and chilled with andrew, malory (girlfriend), and mike and ritchie (band members).. they jammed, i watched and had fun. malory was drawing pictures on the computer haha. it was sweet. then they went for dinner/got ready for the show tonight. andrew's band is currently touring the east coast with protest the hero. lucky bum! then i played some guitar. the grandparents and jonathan came over.. we had a sweet steak dinner. then me, katie, kristen, and jonathan went ot the park and played some sweet games. then we went back, played some cards, ate candy, talked to katie's stalker boy???, and then went to watch so you think you can dance. then i worked out and the rest of the family went to bed.. now i'm here, all alone.. with the dog and kitty cat.
tomororw is the last day here. we leave friday morning at 8. *tear* which also means my livejournal days will be over as of this weekend. i might try and sneak on the laptop at home so i can post some pictures. otherwise, you'll have to check out my msn space to look at pictures. so yea.
today, i accidentally deleted my nofx video.. i meant to press play, but i hit delete instead ... i'm so angry.. oh well, i didn't like nofx that much haha.. it's only a concert.. i'll see others. plus i still have my protest video. i'm all good.

that's it? i guess so. peace it!

good show! [15 Aug 2006|03:00pm]
so last night, i went to a sweet show here in dartmouth. the bands i watched included the letter unfolds, cancer bats, protest the hero, and nofx (a few songs, then i left). there were a whole bunch of other bands, but i never did get into them really. letter unfolds were cool cuz my cousin is the current fill-in bass player. they were pretty sweet. then cancer bats were on the main stage and they were really cool. i talked to the singer a lot after the show, it was cool. they were good. then some other band played on the little stage while i talked with band people, fellow ontarians out in nova scotia haha. so then protest went onstage and they blew everyone away, in my opinion. best band by far at this show. best i've seen live, which isn't much.. so it doesn't mean too much. but they were incredible. then some other band played on small stage. then some band against me, who weren't very good. then another band on the small stage and then nofx.. so many people were there to see nofx.. and it was a huge show. so fun to be there. i waited til they played franco un-american before i left cuz that's the only song i know by them and wanted to sing along. they played it like 3rd tho, so i left pretty early in their set. oh well, they weren't the most amazing band ever.
so it was a good night. i got lots of autographs, pins, free stuffs (stickers, cds, etc).. talked it up with some halifax band peoples and some ontario band peoples.. got pictures and autographs of protest the hero peoples.. soooooooo good. it was completely insane.
so that was the major part of my day yesterday. nothing else all too exciting. i was woken up early by the dog puking 3 times and the cat knocking a vase over and breaking it next to my bed

peace it dawgs

oh yea [11 Aug 2006|10:49pm]
Jonathan wrote a new song today. it goes like this:
"i walked through the garden,
i walked through the garden,
i walked through the garden,
oh yea!"

previously, he sang that camping song, which went like this:
"camping, camping, camping,
and now our song is done"

so yea, today was pretty cool? i woke up, ate breakfast. tried out some "kashi: go lean" cereal. tasted like.. plain lol. it didn't have a taste. anyway.
on the way to the grandparents house, we stopped at music stop and buckley's music store.. music stop was sweet; i played some acoustic guitar then some drums on the electronic drum machine.. i want one soooooooo bad. they play really nicely and they sound cool. plus i cud do some sweet recordings with it?? probably. too bad it costs 3000 bux. at buckley's.. i mainly looked at all the dreamy guitars with emg pickups.. i didn't do much playing there tho . oh well.
we then went to my grandparents to eat, surprising?? lol. then me, jonathan, nhi-nhi, yeh-yeh, and .. uh.. jonathan's grandma (i odn't know how to write it out, just say it haha).. we went to the park in search of basketball nets and a playground. we found it. jonathan won at basketball&swings game.. he had a million zillion billion and 11 points. i only had a zillion. he beat me by a lot. oh well, the basketball only had 500 points. so i don't feel so bad.
we then went home, where we sat around until we headed back to uncle's for dinner. we ate. again. but it was good, again. andrew and his girlfriend were home so i finally got to like, actually chill with him for a bit. we talked about music for quite a while. i guess there's a protest the hero, cancer bats, nofx, and other bands show on monday. i'm kinda excited if i get to go. then we sat around, i worked out a bit. now, here i am.

tomorrow, we might go to "fan's restaurant".. GREAT place to eat. they have the bestest peking duck !! soo good. it used to be called fran's.. which i am used to and have been since i can remember. but then someone else already had that name and just made a fuss about it now. so they had to change the name of the restaurant. i guess they decided to just drop the "r" haha.. oh well

i'm out
peace it

and now the song is done [10 Aug 2006|10:40pm]
so today was pretty fun. realllllllllly boring until the aunt, uncle, and cousin came over. so i woke up around 10.. ate some breakfast, sat around until 12. at 12, we went over to my grandparent's house to eat lunch. after lunch, i sat around on the computer/played with little jonathon. that was fun?? haha not really. then around dinner time, my aunt, uncle, and cousin katie came over. that was fun. we ate, then me, katie, and kristen went to the tv room to play with jonathon and i got beat up by him? i guess so. apparently, i'm a girl cuz i like girls and katie is a boy cuz she likes boys and kristen is a piece of tickling paper. don't ask. then he got really sick and starting having nosebleeds and broke out in hives and his eyes became swollen. eek. so we watched some treehouse and ytv. then we left for dairy queen, cuz it's miracle treat day.. but they were closed. so katie is now off to her dad's house and we're chillin at the uncles tonight. and there isn't much to do cuz everyone has to go to work in the morning (doctors and nurses). i might watch a movie later. who knows what's going on. andrew might come home?? who knows.

oh well. that's my day. tomorrow looks like lunch, sitting around, dinner. that's what we do in nova scotia. sleep and eat.

peace out

2-in-a-row [08 Aug 2006|09:39pm]
for the second day, i am able to sit here on livejournal and bore myself into writing something.
we drove from drummondville to fredricton today. it was a long drive... 10-6:30.. 8.5 hours.. yesterday was longer.. lol, but it still seemed long cuz i didn't sleep as much. oh well
fredricton is boring. the pool was cold. the fitness room was useless. the pizza was good though. haha.
so i'm bored, just updating cuz i can. watching some as i lay dying stuff on youtube.. it's kinda fun. i also don't get youtube on my home computer, so these things are new to me.

hmm... today, we watched dinosaur, charlie and the chocolate factory, and the pink panther. i also slept a whole lot. and um.. that's it. yea, i'm bored.
peace out

i'm back!!! [07 Aug 2006|09:47pm]
so i'll probably be writing in here quite often over the next 2 weeks.. well maybe.. it all depends. i'm on my dad's laptop right now and so livejournal works here. which is good.. not sure if i'm gonna be able to get on a computer much in nova scotia. i guess i'm staying at my grandparents and i'm not sure if he has a computer or not. oh well.
so how's the livejournal community been? i've been able to read and post anonymous comments on my computer at home, but it just isn't the same. i miss you guys.
my life has been good. somewhat eventful. as you (probably) know, i'm on my way to nova scotia. long drive today. but i slept quite a lot, which is good. the weekend was good. hung out with kristin & the heritage crew saturday and sunday. fun times. friday i chilled at melanie's house for a bit before she left for dashboard, then i went to play soccer at 7. it was good times.
can't wait to get to nova scotia!! i'm sooooooooooo excited. hmmm. i don't know what else to write about. it's been way too long since my last update. so yea, i'm kinda stuck . oh well.
maybe something more exciting will happen tomorrow. jonathan, my second cousin from china, is having a blast watching movies and such .. he's 4. we watched the incredibles, finding nemo, chicken little (twice), and charlie and the chocolate factory today. he's a funny kid. i wanna be 4 again.

quebec is all french. it's funny. i'm weird. i know

peace out

my last entry was not completely accurate. so i deleted it. here's the real update.

melanie's surgery didn't work, so that sucks. and she was in lots of pain, but appears to be getting a lot better. so thanks to all who were praying.

in mike news,
on thursday, i went to denis' house and we made a video for our travel and tourism project on trinidad and tobago. it was rather interesting. quite fun times indeed.
on friday, i was really bored, so aubrey came over and we cured ourselves of boredom. at first, we just kinda sat around deciding what to do, which didn't work. then becki told us to go and find green for me to wear. so we went to dollarama to get some green stuff. but then we had to go pick up aubrey's brother at the U. that was fun? okay. so we went back to dollarama, got some flowers for melanie and some caps for my cap gun :) . then we went to shoppers to get melanie a card and some gummi bears. we then spent the next 10 minutes trying to write something in this card for melanie. we're not great writers. so we went to melanies house and provided some company for her. and i felt really bad because she was so tired and hurting. but after about an hour, we had to leave :( ... aubrey dropped me off at home for dinner and she left for her youth. i went to my youth for a st. patricks day party. not all that fun.
today was jammin at christians, without jesse so it wasn't all that great. but we played some nhl 2006 and madden 2006 on his ps2. so that was fun. and then i got a haircut and sat around.


beyond the surfaceCollapse )
