State of Washington Department of Correction

Recently I took a new job at DOC on Feb 16, 2016. So far its been good experience. A lot of new things to learn from environment and new faces. Its a whole new culture over here. We need agile so information are flowing between the groups.

Its a bit frustrated but I’m not giving up. I’m going to keep trying.

Sick Kids

I got three sick kids at home. One’s 8 years old, second one is 4 years old, and third is the 1 year old. When kids sick the whole family are sick. Hearing a cough after the other keeps you up. I haven’t slept the last 3 days. Its killing me. Energy drink does work! it keeps your mind awake!

A Well Thought of Ideas

Sometimes in life we all hit a point where we don’t what to do. I have seen that in this person I met. I didn’t know how to help but make them realize that what we got now is important. I made them pay closer attention to our surroundings and love ones. I finally feel proud of myself for many reasons.

I’m able to make them distant and hate me to the point of no return. No matter how tired I am working two positions, but it made me happy. I rather not be friends then being a friends because it made me love them more. This is the only way out for me.

We live to create the appreciations, we live under facts but lights will always shine. Every day I sit at the cliff of the ocean, starting into the waves pounding against the shores, and day dream of that special moment with the friend. That’s when I realize exactly what I should do to make them wake up. There are many ways to piss one person out to get a punch in the face.

I hate myself for being so right. I hate myself for projecting my thoughts out to the hairline. I hate myself even more when you say “We cannot be friends”. But i loved myself more when I gave up my thoughts and feelings of a friend to take the blame and gave you happiness.

Thats just the way I am here on earth.

A step backwards to leap forward

Sometimes in life its better to take a step backwards. Yesterday a friend visited me yesterday with a partner. I finally understand what it means to defend. But to make this friend happy I rather take the blame and not provide the evidence. Like what this friend said “I’m not a family destroyer”.

My friend, I’m the same. I rather see you happy then being the destoryer. Hence I am keep everything away from you to let you see what you need to see. I don’t need to defend myself. There’s no need to as words that comes through a third person always get changed. You’re old enough to figure that.

—- thats my day yesterday —

Last week July 19 at 6:35 am Bac 5 Hieu passed away. Everyday I was there with Tam Dang drinking with Hai Nguyen. We drank everyday from Sunday night till Saturday night. It was hard. Drinking suppose to be fun once in awhile, but because someone pass away you have to drink make its really hard. The Heineken was very bitter.


I guess over the pass months its been very hard. The day that I stepped into Department of Enterprises was the day that I smiled everyday. It was also the day that my smile was taken away. Smiling to me doesn’t mean the same anymore. It’s a gesture that is not true anymore. They day that I gave hope was also the day that my smile was take away from me.

I think I’m smile disabled.

Going with the Flow

Ya know what? I couldn’t be much happier. Being a by stander and looking at others be happy, it makes me more happier. Yesterday, LinLin called me up somehow. Don’t know how she found my new number, but somehow she found it on her own. I left work today at 2 today just for a coffee with her at Starbucks. While sitting there having Green Tea Frap with her. I don’t know what to say to her. I just smile like I always.

She said “I’m really sorry. I didn’t know what to do”

I said “you don’t have to. this smile will always be with you.” and I smiled understanding every aspects of her.

She said “you really do? ”

I said “Yes LinLin” and gave a smerkle smile again.

She said “Could we ever be friends?”

I said “Yes Lin, we’re always friend from the day we haven’t spoke.”

We sat there and stared at each other from 2:20pm to 4:30. We didn’t say much, but I couldn’t be more proud of myself than ever. It’s not that I hurt her in anyway, but its the support that I have given. As long as LinLin is happy and decide on a path. I’ll always be there for those whom I have loved.

What I learned in life is, Smiling is my way out of everything. I want to be the support of my love ones. I don’t want to be questioning my love ones decisions. I rather be there to pull and jiggle their hands when they are stuck. Recently I fell in love again, loved this friend as a friend, but she quite don’t understand herself yet. Therefore she rather locks herself in our own coldness heart again to believe I’m a crazy mental person instead of believing the fact that her unrealistic life is playing tricks on her. She rather hold tight on to hear coldness minds instead of realizing what is the meaning of loving. Letting one past away than realizing the mistakes that she made, than in the end she draws her self back to where she was.

What she doesn’t understand about me is: what ever she decide I’ll always be there to support those who I once have cared. My smile will always be there with me to support you.

My meeting with LinLin was a really understanding one. At the end of the hang out she gave me a hug and said “Thanks Cardin” and gave me a light kiss on the cheeks.

I don’t hope this meeting with ever happen ever again. But I do hope to see her once a year just to know she is doing ok or else I’ll just be praying by the day hoping that she is doing ok.

Sometimes life isn’t about words. Its about the smile on our face. I didn’t make it hard for her but I supported her. Appreciation is all it counts. Though we didn’t say more then 50 words.

What makes a break up beautiful is:
We did not say anything bad with each other.
15 years later we see the past as a memory that exist in our hearts but couldn’t turn back in time. We’re just friends from now on.

This rules applies to friendship too. Real friends will never abandon you no matter what happens, what you did. I will always be true friends to those I care.

Those who abandon you are those who never really see you as a friend.

Once again, I was promise a friend, but that friend abandon me, because …………. But then I gained an understanding from a friend I never abandoned “LinLin”.

To LinLin, I know you’re reading this and I’m happy you are reading this. Else you wouldn’t be able to find my phone number. I’m not mental, I’m not crazy. That’s just my way of loving and living my life here on earth. I’m happy for you girl. If we ever get a chance next life. I hope we can be friends since we will have no memory of this life.

To the Person who no longer see me as a friend; I understand why you are doing and what you’re doing. I don’t mind what you call me, mental, crazy, liar, or what ever you say to others. You have nothing for me to lie for. You have nothing that I want. I wanted a friend. Your boundaries of a friend don’t exist and you blame it on others. But you have sparked my life and understanding of whom I am. My smile will always be the same. I will never abandon my friends. I have many friends who left me. I have few friends who have left me. But I still have a great friend who never said a single thing after she have left. She’s a real lover to a friend no matter what position we are in. Thats how I see you. I dont see you as a lover. I see you as a friend.

Thank you Lin. Thank you for all your wonderful email my internet readers. Thank you for the great support all these years.

I am crazy?

No I’m not crazy but I’m heartily crazy. Facts are facts… =) Oh well, anyways life moves on. I was used as a stand by friend. When I could not lie to this friend. It bit me in the neck.
Moving on, ouch thats all I can say. Ouch…….
My brother is heading off to Central this Thursday and Friday. I’m not sure if I can take the days of to go with him. I’d probably give him some money and let him go alone.

gaaaaa……. For love you can do anything ….you can lie anything…..

there  are two type of love

a.) understanding and accepting your pair to be happy.
b.) twisting facts because you don’t want the other pair to see your sicko side.

it hurts ..hahahahh…but if I have to become a side friend. I will do that. Funny fact, guys like me got punched and got hurted but we get the blame. oh well……life hurts ……..I shouldn’t have ate, talk, or even come close to other people PROPERTY.

To me its a friend in my heart, but to other they are no more than personal property enjoyment.

oh well closing this topic. Tomorrow journal will be about different topics.

Giving an Easier Ride

Lately I been acting against my heart because I want to give this friend an easier ride on decision that she have chosen to unfriend me. Though it hurts a lot inside me but I think its best. If that is her decision to decide the value of “friendships”. Coldness and losing the value of life comes from it. Family is always important, but when we define what’s blood and whats not. Friends kill each other over many weird things. At the end no matter what time of friendship it is we’re just human beings.
We decide what friendship is. We decide the value of friendship. Friendship takes understanding one another and willing to accept ones past and forgive what has been done.
As a friend, I see her as a friend no matter what she have decide. As a friend I will act, react, and make it easier to hate me to death. I hope that after I die you will read my journal before my website goes down. After I die, I hope you will read it before my server runs out of money so you will understand that my intention was never bad. It was to help you succeed. I’m willing to become your stepping stop to lead you to your happiness.

Beside all the painful things I have to walk everyday. Now I have to keep my eyes and ears open. Somethings coming up my way…..I should be recieving my important mail today.

Stepping Stone & Decisions

Yesterday I received an important call to head back to work. That’s the call I’m very afraid of. Our life here on earth are very limited. Every moment we should pay close attention to what we’re doing and others are doing. Though we are careful of what happen, but no matter what happens we all have our weak points. Sometimes other takes that weak point in our heart to step on. Either they train their own minds to think you’re the bad one. I guess I’m so use to it now that I’m dull. I’ve been a stepping stone and willing to be it. It’s interesting today, I bumped into a friend at Safeway today. Good to know she’s doing great with 4 kids. I walked by with a grin on my face and whispered “hello”. I can already see the tears dripping in her eyes and heart. That tears made me forgive and forget what had happen.

19 years ago I signed up to be a part of this country and defend the constitution of the United States to heart. Today I took that oath to continue to make my remaining life worth while. A skills set that I can only deliver at my finger tips. Life hurts…..but what else can we do…..People find things to make their life busy. Myself, me , and I find things to make it better for those we care. Later, i’ll stop here. I’m talking non-sense now…….. =)
