Gotta make some scrilla, killa

In order to come up, you need to own/start your own business.

Being an employee sucks. Not only do you have to do menial and tedious work day in and day out, but all the hard work and effort you put into your job is basically going to benefit your boss. I mean sure you'll get verbal praise on a job well done, or you may even get lucky enough to earn an insignificant raise on your already lowly salary, so that your boss will make your 4 years at a nationally ranked university seem worthwhile.

Every person's job is pretty significant to them. After finishing school, most people spend the majority of their adult lives at their workplace. Work is many times the center of people's conversations, and some individuals go as far as letting their lives be defined by their career. So while each individual person holds their job as something important or meaningful, to the employers, employees are just another cost.

When someone starts a business, lets say a sushi restaurant, do you think the owner is really thinking, "Hey, i want to hire a sushi chef, so that I can provide for him a meaningful job and a ways for him to provide for himself and his family." ? I doubttt it. Basically, the owner just needs a way for the fresh fish to come from the fish delivery trucks to the chopsticks of his paying customers. So employers just hire somebody to bring that service. Alongside rent, utilites, replacing outdated equipment, and buying new supplies, employees are just another cut to the boss's profit margin.

And im not saying that business owners/bosses are cruel and incompassionate monsters driven soley to make a buck, but i do believe that the primary reason for people to own or start a business is to make some monies.

Anyways my point is.......who wants to start a business with me? loll

Or who has an idea of an invention??

I mean there has been some crazy inventions that has made millions of dollars. I heard of this guy who sold pet rocks. He packaged it in a cardboard house, filled with grass and other amenities that a pet rock needs. He also put in like a pet rock owner's guide, that said jiral like, "this pet will never disobey you. this pet never needs to be fed, and never needs to be cleaned. this pet will never die on you. All it needs is your love and it will love you right back. " wow, this guy was either an autistic 5th grade PE teacher or simply a genius. Since he sold over five million pet rocks in a 6 month period, making him a multimillionaire, he's a genius in my book.

Snuggie

And another invention that sold like crez was the snuggie. I remember when i first saw that thing, i was gona throw my dog through the tv screen. "A Blanket with sleeves"?????? I think something like that was already invented. its called a jacket. Anyways, i thought the snuggie would be ultimate fail, but it sold millions already. MILLIONS! how..in..the...world. I mean i guess they got lucky. Cause i really believe that alot of people bought the snuggie, not out of pure functionality, but because it was so strange/wierd/cultish that they just bought it for 14.99 at walmart. Its more of a novelty item i guess? i dont think anyone expects to be taken seriously if they're "wearing" a blanet. So in a way it's like the perfect gift that would make people laugh, which is probably why i think every white elephant/gift exchange this year included a snuggie. and you know that make snuggies for DOGS NOW?!

btw do people read this blog?

if u have a good idea for a business startup/invention please leave it as a comment, so i can steal your idea. except for eugenia, i dont want to hear anymore of your ideas.


You know what's better than a snuggie? A Onesie. I'll cheers to that.

Its Raining.

As i get older, i'm appreciating food more and more.

When i was in elementary school, I was hyperactive. There were too many things for me to do (ie. ride bikes, go swimming, read books, beat up my sister, go to chuckecheese). And since there were too many fun things to do, eating food was the LAST thing on my mind. I remember i didn't even like wasting time to go to the restroom, so i would try to hold my poo/pee until my large intestine was about to implode like a dying star.

I don't know if every asian culture heavily encourages children to eat alot, but i know that korean parents love kids that eat alot, or maybe they just dislike kids who eat a little and waste food. So as i was going into the 6th grade, i just remember trying to be less picky with food and trying to eat larger quantities of food to appease my parents. I clearly remember that the first thing i changed was not to remove all the vegetables from hamburgers. Like if someone gave me a whopper/bigmac when i was little, i would take like 5 minutes removing any foreign substance from the burger except the meat, buns, and ketchup. So it was a big step for me to eat all the other crap they put into hamburgers like lettuce and tomatoes.

long story short, i began to eat more and more until i got fat and self conscious. I remember i wore like sz 32 anchor blue jeans in 8th grade. HOlyy i was fat. Luckily i got stressed out about life/my future in my sophomore year of highschool and lost weight.

wow. that was a long tangent. anyways now that im in college, i appreciate food more. If you live at home, your parents usually provide 2-3 square meals complete with banchan and fruit for dessert. but it's not uncommon for me to eat a box of cereal for dinner in college. So i guess i just began to appreciate cooked(not microwaved) food more and more.

Another thing good about food is that it can be an event itself. whether it be cooking, finding a new spot to eat at, or eating at spots you always go to. i saw princess and the frog, which was btw one of the worst disney movies to come out in a while (everything from the plot to the music was mediocre at best). In the movie, the dad of the main character said, "You know the thing about good food – it brings people together.” Word.

i dont know why i wrote this post. but i told myself i would try to blog more.
And what would be a AndrewParkPhotography post be without pictures?

The view from my room. At first i hated my view, cause it was just of the street and it was noisy as hail. But i realized its better than the view of some random hallway or something. I like how the street looks glossy after it rains.

peace outside.

Goodbye 2009

Happy New Year! Get some money, eat some ddukgook, and give thanks with a grateful heart.

This upcoming decade is going to be a crazzyyyy transitional period for most of us. We are going to finish college, (hopefully) get a job, and maybe get married?? By the end of the 20ten's we are going to be 30. wthell. So let's all enjoy our last years of college and enjoy our freedom, before we are thrown into the cruel and cold "real world".

I will try my best to update this blog throughout the year, but we'll see how that goes. I guess that's as far as my new year's resolution goes.

As we move onto the (20)10's, here is a (lengthy) flashback of this year. Most of you guys won't care about 2/3's of the pictures i post, but i dont care.
