Minh and I are chatting online about our favorite t-shirt. Yes, OUR t-shirt.
So back in college, Minh had this plain dark navy blue Hollister t-shirt size L. All it is really is a navy blue t-shirt, with bold white letters H O L L I S T ER. I think I own like 5 things total from them my entire life. LOL, just not my store..too much my sister's age (16). I think this shirt was a Hollister shirt from when he was in undergrad...haha ancient! Minh's 26 (Dec 26, 1982). Steph (me) I'm 22 (April 4, 1987) I'm a young 22 :D. In case anyone was wondering lol. This shirt feels sooooo good. I stole it to wear a lot when I was going through my "I ate too much my clothes don't fit as comfortable as your shirt Minh stage" in college. HAHA. Our story?
Minh was a 2nd year law school at MSU, I was a Junior (undergrad) at MSU, we studied at the same library. MSU's Law School is also the Law Library/Business Library in one. It was basically proximity, haha and him offering to buy coffee and snacks..which then eventually lead to meals..aka lunch, dinner, and snacks! Which lead to DSK gaining 30lbs.
So back to our Hollister T-shirt story. I refused to buy new clothes once I stopped fitting into my normal clothes (which I still can't fit into today...yikes!) I realized the older I get, the harder it is for me to lose the LBS. Kind of freaky.
I couldn't afford to buy new clothes because I was pretty dependent on my parents. AKA, I had no money, all I did was focus on my academics. Mr. M. Tran decides to enter my life and trick me into growing needy and dependent on him for a good meal! Haha,he bribed me with food, and won. Now I love him more than anything really. I can't lie though as much as I tried to push him out of my life at the begininig I couldn't help but feel sad when he wasn't around or asking me out to do stuff. I LOVE TO RUN ERRANDS and shop and browse even the grocery stores. And yes, I fell in love with him randomly one day. HAHA, been stuck ever since (and I don't mind)!
We don't really have an anniversary date, it was around end of December/January 2007. Therefore, we declared January 1st our anniversary so we never forget it, lol. I'm not really a big "remember the date" kind of girl. I don't need a special day to feel special because I feel special each and everyday almost lol. Minh made me feel like a million bucks everyday we saw each other. Even when I couldn't fit into my clothes and stole that navy blue Hollister T of his. He would still take me to Ihop or Denny's whatever was open so we could eat late night while we studied. It was sweet, but now I despise him for it..I can't taste that food now, but I can feel the extra Denny's flab still in my arms & thighs!
He was just here in MI for my graduation and just took the shirt home, and he's wearing it tonight, haha. He knew I would be jealous because I LOVE that shirt! It's super quality material, and it feel so good against my skin, and it keeps the right places warm! LOL, like my shoulders.
Overall: I want your old, faded Hollister t-shirt back Minh!! That's my HG of bum around the house clothes. I swear I've posted pictures wear that shirt, or wore it in a video cause I'm a hobo/homeless casual stylish like that. I really want to make a new video, I've just been really ugly lately. hahaha
I caught the Heidi dog sleeping on my pillow!! She's actually still sleeping on it...GRRR
I'm not sure if many of you know my sleeping arrangements, lol. WELL
(You have got to love the simplicity of growing up Viet, or Asian..haha nothing fucking matches, ahhaha and we're okay with this...right? HAHA, not when I get my own place will I live with mixmatched bed sheets)
My parents house has 4 rooms,
-1 My Parents
-1 My lil sis, Julia
-1 Mine, but now occupied by my Grandma (who moved in with us so she can get her cancer treatment in MI, it's easier to go to and from the hospital/dr. office in MI, rather than in busy CA) My Gma has gone through chemo, radiation, and how she has a disk of some sort inside her chest, so they're just monitoring that. She's 77, and her hair is growing back beautifully. She's actually the one who organizes all my jewelry chains for me after they arrived individually packaged. HAHA DSK does not have patience to deal with tangled chains!! Patience has never been my strong point, but it is hers! DSK blurb** The Sterling Silver Box Chains I use are Made in Italy, they're pretty fancy pants! That's why they look so elegant. RANDOM FACT RIGHT THURRRRR, it takes good eyes but if you have one of my Sterling Box Chains, look on the tag, it says Italy. Italy = EXOTIC to DSK, okay? I've never been, but my lil sister has..maybe one day I'll go with Minhers. We're planning a vacation to Disney World first week of August!!!
So back to my Grandma Hue
She used to own a "Home Depot" style business back in the old country lol (Vietnam), my Grandpa was an Aritecht, building, contractor etc. He built bridges, railroads in VN; he did a lot ishh back in his day. He's a smart man,speaks, reads, writes perfect English (HAHA he's better than some of his children), he's 77 or 78 and uses word, and clipart and make me a graduation card! haha I'll have to show you guys sometime. He's also a Volunteer Police Man..so yeah you better watch out. DSK's Grandpa Khuong will write you a ticket for parking in the handicap spot.
I saw his old photos. My Grandpa was really hot aka using the world handsome now cuase he's my grandpa! when he was my age (22). AHAHAHAHAHAHAA SERIOUSLY, my female cousins all had to agree when we went through his old pictures.
WOW, look at my tangent. I must be in DIARY writing mode.
-1 Basement Room, my mom's "nail salon" storage room
That leaves me, the inflatable bed (which is wicked comfy for only $52 Walmart size Full) lol
I sleep in the middle of the living room!! Why isn't in the basement? Well....DSK workshop is all over this house..I drive my parents loco. But they put up with me.
How's home life after being away for 4 years?? TERRIBLE.
I'm so used to my freedom. I feel like I'm in jail with annoying cell mates!
