update
Here's an update:
I came home to a completely empty house which was kind of unusual. I went straight to my room bypassing the note my sister left on this roman style column we have in our living room. I walked out to the living room and noticed all of my dad's glucose test strips and machine out on the coffee table. I figured I would just call my mom on her phone since she'd know where my sisters and brother were(I figured they had just gone to a movie because that tends to be our friday plans) and as I had finished dialing I noticed the side of the note sticking out from the column. I went to read the note expecting something bad. Right when I read it my heart sank into my tummy. She wrote, "Sarita, something's happened to dad. He's sick. Call me on my cell and I will explain but you need to come to the hospital as soon as you get this, he's in room 374" was at the hospital for a couple of hours, until visiting hours were over. I walked in to find my mom, brother, both sisters, and my aunt and uncle in the room. I found out that my mom had checked his blood sugar 3x in the morning(the 3rd time it read 28), well, then he ended up passing out so my brother called 911, they took a read on his blood sugar and said it was so low that it wasn't giving them a read on it. They gave him something and he finally came around and was totally confused as to why there paramedics were in our house. He started to feel better after they gave him whatever they did so he didn't have to go to the hospital. Well, then about a few hours later my mom said he wasn't aware of anything, he couldn't recognize my brother and he complained he couldn't move his arm. They ended up taking him to the hospital and my dad told them he thinks he may have had a mild stroke. So right when I got into the room they were ready to take him down to get his CAT scan. We didn't get the results until late late last night. He didn't have a stroke(thank God!) We all headed out to get some dinner and then went back home. My sister spent the night in the hospital and my mom got there at about 5 a.m. and now I'm going to go and take my shift. He's got an endoscopy scheduled today and I guess if everything goes well he can come back home either tonight or tomorrow(hopefully he does).

Prayers please!
Okay, so I get off work early and come home to an empty house. I look around because something just doesn't seem right. I look to our banister in the enterance of the house and there's a note from my sister. Apparently my dad is in the hospital. I guess his blood sugar was really low, at 28, i don't know what to expect when I get there but please say some prayers that he'll be okay and get better soon! I am in complete shock and my heart is in my tummy right now. Thanks guys!

Ari Hest, Red Heart The Ticker, Angie Aparo @ Cafe DuNord in San Francisco 1-20-07
Review time! Bare with me because I didn't get home until 3:30a.m this morning and I have been awake since 6a.m.

Getting to the venue was insane! Apparently, there was an accident on west bound 80 that occured at 11:30a.m. There were three fatalities and the cars ignited(I am so glad I did not see this because I do not know how I'd handle seeing something like that with my friend's death happening that way). The accident closed 80 for 5 hours which of course screwed me up bad. I was supposed to be at the venue by 7:30p.m. since I was selling merch. I left Sacramento at 4:30p.m. and should have reached San Francisco by 6:30p.m. From 4:30-6:45 I had only traveled 40 miles. By the time I got to the venue parking was impossible to find so I decided to park in the Safeway parking lot hoping that they won't tow my car and just giving me a parking ticket instead. Yes, I totally risked it after praying to God and asking him to make sure my car was there after the show. I got inside at about 8:45p.m. and got settled. Ari introduced me to Ty from Red Heart The Ticker and I found out I was going to handle merch for Red Heart The Ticker which was cool.

Red Heart The Ticker got on first, they sounded great. I had heard of them but lately with my crazy schedule I haven't been able to do a whole lot of new things so I never got around to checking them out. I enjoyed them from where I was at the merch table, I didn't get a chance to sneak a peak. I felt so bad because Robin from RHTT came up and introduced herself to me and I shook her head and said Robin...trying to think if I should know that name or not. She must have sensed it because then she explained that she was part of RHTT so then it made sense. They were both very nice people, they let out good energy. My head was in a fog because I didn't pick up a cd from them or Angie Aparo. Next time, I guess.

Angie Aparo got up on stage and did his thing. I enjoyed him as well, he was upbeat. He sang Faith Hill's "Cry" which sounded amazing. He mentioned he was to blame for the traffic on 80 so after Ari's set he was sitting next to his merch guy and I pointed at him and go, "you! you're the reason why I was stuck in my car for 4 hours!" We talked about what happened and I mentioned how it was the car accident. I guess they were driving from Redding and came down on 5 and then they were going to take 80 and decided to turn around and get back on 5 because of the congestion which was such a smart move on their part. I wish I had know about the accident or something. I hate being late to anything, it just speaks poorly of you, in my opinion. Anyhow, I liked him. Again, somebody I had known about for quite some time but never remember to check him out. I'm missing out! haha.

Robin and Ty from Red Heart The Ticker offered to handle the merch while I watched Ari's set so I actually got to see the whole show which was really nice of them. Ari performed solo and it was a great set. The new songs from the new album sound fantastic and I absolutely cannot wait for the album to come out. Ari started the show off with this new song that he wrote about a week ago. Part of the lyrics go something like, "fallin' in love with a memory you've forgotten." It was a nice song and I really enjoyed it.

Okay, so here's the set list:

Untitled
When & If
Bird Never Flies
Fond Farewell
Caught Up In Your Love
I've Got You
I'm On Fire
Upstairs
Sleep Tonight
Hallelujah
When Everything Seems Wrong
Strangers Again

I loved getting to hear the older ones again like "Strangers", "Caught Up In Your Love" and "WESW". I don't think I'll ever get sick of hearing "Fond Farewell", it's one of my favorites. "I've Got You" sounded great and Ari started it off by asking if there were people who had been to previous shows of his and a ton of people raised their hands. So then he said something along the lines of how we'd know the story behind the next song and how he wrote it wanting someone in particular to sing it with him and also that about 2 weeks ago he finally got to meet Norah Jones but didn't mention the song to her. When Ari introduced "Caught Up In Your Love" he said he was going to sing an old song that was kind of a silly song and me and Rachel thought the same thing, we thought it'd be "Pound For Pound" or "Terms & Conditions" but it wasn't. "Sleep Tonight" sounded AMAZING. "Upstairs" is one of my favorites and When & If absolutely puts a knot in my stomach(in a good way). "I'm On Fire" got the crowd hyped. "Bird Never Flies" sounded great, he mentioned how he got some help on that song from I believe Gary Louris of The Jayhawks. "Hallelujah" sounded great as usual but the noise from the bar area was a bit much. It was a great night and the set was fantastic, I'm glad I got a chance to take a break from all this other stuff going on in my world and escape for that one night. Oh and for those of you that are curious, no my car was not towed and I did not get a parking ticket.

6 facts.
Once tagged by this entry, the assignment is to write a journal entry with six random facts about yourself. Then, pick six of your friends and tag them; no tag backs. This explanation should be included.


1. I absolutely love roller coasters. The bigger, the better.

3. I was a Johnson & Johnson's calendar baby.
4. Babies make me smile and I absolutely love holding them.

Wedding time fun!
Okay, so I got to thinking about how stretched out Hindu weddings are and how different they are. Yesterday I actually decided that I was going to start blogging about the different functions that lead up to the wedding and then what happens during our wedding ceremonies.

About a week prior to the wedding we hold something that's called "The Ramayana". What the Ramayana is, it's a text that tells the stories of Rama and Sita. Here's a bit of background; "the Ramayana relates the adventures of Rama, who, together with his three half brothers, collectively made up the seventh avatar (incarnation) of the Hindu god Vishnu. Rama was deprived by guile of the throne of Ayodhya and forced into a long exile with his wife, Sita, the prototype of noble womanhood. When Sita was abducted by a demon, Rama allied himself with the king of the monkeys, Sugriva, and the monkey general, Hanuman, and fought a mighty battle in Lanka (Sri Lanka). Finally, Sita was recovered, and Rama was restored to his kingdom. The Adhyatma Ramayana, a popular work of more recent date, tells how Sita's mother (the earth mother) rose from a great chasm to reclaim her daughter. The epic influenced many of the literatures of Southeast Asia. Its principal characters are still worshiped in India." I got this information from: http://education.yahoo.com/reference/encyclopedia/entry/Ramayana just so I don't end up getting hit with this whole plagerism stuff. haha.

Anyhow, it's a very significant function to hold when anyone is getting married and traditionally the bride has to start it off. So when my Ramayana is held, I will have to read a piece of it. My mom will translate it in English so I can sound it out and make it sound as if I'm speaking Sanskrit.

The whole Ramayana will take close to or over 24 hours to complete, depending on how fast one reads the text. Throughout those hours, there will be many people(family and friends) who will come to read from the book. The house will be left open for those who are coming in to read and there will continously be food readily available to guests. After the Ramayana is finished about an hour later there will be a pooja which is a religious worship. There will be religious hymns that will be sang and an Aarti that will be done. Aarti is a hindu ritual in which we have a religious brass instrument where there is oil or purified butter with some cotton inside the instrument. It's like a mini brass candle holder with handles. More religious hymns are sang in honor of one or many deities. Aarti literally means "towards the highest love for God" in sanskrit. After the Aarti, the panditji or priest goes around and splashes holy water on each and every person.

For me, after the Aarti is done and after lunch is served we will hold a Lady Sangeet. Sangeet means song/singing so when you put the two together you've got it, a bunch of ladies singing songs. These aren't any regualar songs, they are songs that welcome the bride to married life. They're very lighthearted songs and while the ladies are singing there are also women dancing. It's quite festive.

On another day during the week one of my mom's friends is actually holding another lady sangeet night at her house for me. It's all about celebration.

On thursday night I will be getting ready for the mendhi night. Mendhi is more popularly known as henna. It's one of the first preperations for the bride. I'll have henna on my hands that'll go up close to my elbows and then henna on my feet up to my ankles. It's a sign of happiness and a prosperous union and it's said that the darker your mendhi comes out the happier your marriage will be along with how much love you will receive from your in-laws, particularlly the mother-in-law which is very important. It's said that the bride does not perform any household chores until her mendhi has faded off. Also, once the mendhi is applied you are not allowed to the leave the house until the day of the wedding. That's rigth folks, I'll be on lock down! haha.

Friday morning will be the Maiya and choora ceremony. Here's basically what happens:

"The Bangle Ceremony
Ivory and red bangles denote purity, wealth and fertility. The chuda ceremony is performed at your home and your maternal uncle (mama) plays an important role in adorning your wrists. Bright colours such as red, orange and magenta are generally worn, as they are believed to be lucky.

Traditionally, you are not allowed to wear the chuda until your future parents-in-law have given you the ceremonial gift of kwar dhoti, which includes a sari, white dhoti (coat) to give to the priest, dried fruits, sweets, bhindi (red spot for the forehead), oil and cosmetics.

The ceremony begins with the priest praying and takes place either in the morning or a time deemed auspicious by the horoscopes. You are not allowed to see the set of bangles but everyone present is supposed to touch them to offer you luck. Lightweight ornaments in beaten silver and gold (kalira) are tied to the bangles with which your maternal aunt and mama had covered your wrists, although the kiliras stop you from performing any housework. When you are leaving, hit one of your friends and cousins with the kiliras and they will be the next to marry!

Maiya: Some of your friends and relatives(The first seven people that apply this on me have to be married)help you to apply vatna or uptan (turmeric powder and mustard oil) to parts of your body as this is supposed to purify you for the wedding."

I found this section at: http://www.weddingguide.co.uk/articles/ceremonies/hindupunjabi.asp#bangle2

Anyhow, now we're not to the following day which will be the wedding. I'll leave that for another entry since this is looooooooooooooooong and I've still got work to do! :) Hope you enjoyed!

"When the lights go down in the city and the sun shines on the bay..."
Oh my goodness! I just got back from seeing Journey tonight and can I just say AMAZING! What a show! They rocked it out hard and being able to be a part of their thirty year anniversary was just something in itself. It is undescribable as to how great it was to be there sitting, watching, and listening. Just taking it all in. Great great stuff. It's amazing how you can't really tell the difference now that Perry is gone. I went to the show with the hopes of getting to hear the songs I wanted. The crowd was awesome, better than last time I went to a show at the Amphitheater. It was just great. Towards the end I watched two songs at the bottom to the left of the stage and I got a real good look at the guys. What songs were they? FAITHFULLY! and we got "Don't stop Believin'". We also got "Any Way You Want It", "LIGHTS"! I love that song. "Open Arms!!!" Love that song too and they rocked it. It was funny because when they were tuning I turned to Terri and said, "they're going to do 'Open Arms'" and then they did. The piano intro to it was great. "Who's Crying Now", and a bunch of other songs. I must say that I don't care too much for the new stuff, especially for the new single. But the show was just wow. Loved it! I'm really glad that I can say "yes, I've been to a Journey concert."

So the funeral is tomorrow. I can't believe she's gone. I went by the accident/crash site yesterday. I had to drive by it on my way home to Yuba City. I lost it as I drove by. I cannot believe that she's gone. I saw a picture from a local news station, you've got to see this, her trunk was the only thing remaining. ugh.

title or description People might think I'm torturing myself but I have to get evey bit of this in my mind so I can deal with it and get over it asap. I miss the fact that she's not here anymore. Those quotes above were shared by her best friend whom was considered her sister, Mandy.

12:18 am
A 20-year-old Sutter County woman was killed Tuesday morning when her vehicle collided head-on with a big rig in south Sutter County.

The grisly accident and subsequent grass fire prompted the closing Highway 113 a half mile south of George Washington Boulevard for more than three hours as emergency workers doused flames from the collision.

"We had to close the road. It [the accident and fire] was too much of a hazard," said Jeff Larson, spokesman for the California Highway Patrol.

The woman's name was not released, pending notification of next of kin and the completion of an autopsy. According to Sgt. Bruce Hutchinson of the Sutter County Sheriff's Department, the coroner will identify the victim by dental records because her body was badly burned.

The CHP wants more information on the crash and is encouraging witnesses to call 674-5141.

According to Larson, the crash happened at 10:15 a.m. on Highway 113 between Everglade Road and George Washington Boulevard north of Robbins. The speed limit there is 55 mph, Larson said.

The woman was traveling south on Highway 113 at an unknown speed in an Acura SSX when she drifted off the road and onto the shoulder, according to Larson.

The woman overcorrected her steering as she started to lose control of her vehicle, he said. Her car swerved back onto the road and into the path of Singh Jagtar, 56, of Stockton, driving northbound in a 1991 Freightliner gravel truck for JS Trucking, according to Larson.

The collision's force scattered debris around the crash site as the truck rolled atop the victim's car and pushed it onto the shoulder of the northbound lane.

California Highway Patrol officer Dan Kleinert writes an accident report at the scene of a two-vehicle collision Tuesday on Highway 113 north of Everglade. The accident killed a woman and injured a Stockton man.



The collision started a fire that consumed both vehicles. Jagtar escaped from his truck, but the woman was trapped inside her car.

Jagtar was taken by Bi-County Ambulance to Rideout Memorial Hospital with complaints of back pain, Larson said.

Firefighters from the Sutter County Oswald-Tudor station and the Yuba City Fire Department put out the fire and afterwards extricated the victim's body from the vehicle.

A wrecking crew lifted the cab of the truck off the Acura so firefighters could determine whether anyone else was in the car.

The woman was the twenty-eighth traffic fatality in the Yuba-Sutter this year, Larson said.

this was the captioning under the picture:

Poor Vinny. oh my gosh!

Soul numbers
hmmm. who knew there was such a thing? I'm at home watching "Pay It Forward"(love that movie) and listening to the rain fall outside. It's quite nice. Anyhow, I'm just one of those people who likes reading about all this 'mystical' stuff and came across this whole "soul numbers" thing. So yeah, here's what my soul number says about me:

You have a Soul Number ... 2 ...






Keywords: Communication, Cooperation, Romance, Wisdom

Your soul has a calling for harmony, bliss, romance, and cooperation. Inwardly you yearn for situations in which there is little stress, or competition.

You generally feel best in a role that lets you be supportive.




Want to know your soul number? Here's the site: http://www.simplynumbers.com/html/interactive/sn_int_soul.asp


Actually, this website is interesting. http://www.simplynumbers.com/html/interactive/interactive.asp


This is a good description of me: (this is my personal name)
The Five Person: Curious, Giving, Traveler, Innocent
As a five individual you enjoy quiet times, with a few friends or alone. Family and friends are important to you, although you may have difficulty in relating to them.

You have the capacitity for being a great teacher, or educator, as you enjoy learning and sharing your knowledge with others.

You can flourish at activities, and pursuits which enable you to be in an environment which encourages inventiveness, and creativity. You may feel drawn to vocations in which you can harness your strong intuitive nature.

Life for you can be very pleasant if you can allow yourself to make time and space for the activities that nourish you, rather than doing the things which you think you ought to be doing.


My life path number is 6

The 6 Life Path is about having compassion and empathy for others. It may involve standing up and willingly giving assistance to those who need it most. Balance and Responsibility are key elements of this life path. Feeling useful makes you feel happy.

Maturing
When a family member, or friend later in life, is upset, angry, or ill you are the person that tries to make the feel better. Somehow your kind words or actions contribute to helping that individual to feel better about himself.

You would do well in any endeavor that requires kindness, patience, tolerance, generosity and caring. As such, you would be an excellent caregiver, nurse, doctor, host, teacher, or perhaps stay at home parent. You are also very logical. Your innate analytical ability allows you to solve problems easily.

You enjoy the arts, and like to bring them into your home. Decorating can be an important part of your life. You enjoy making your home an attractive and welcoming place. This can allow you to entertain which brings you much happiness.

Mature
Although you have genuine concern, and love, for your family and friends you understand that you have your own needs and that they are important.

You have come to realize that the world is not black and white. All problems do not have to be immediately thought through and solved by you. You can let others take on their own challenges.

You also understand that you do not have to keep up with the latest trends and styles to your home decorated well. You also do not need the latest "in item" for your wardrobe. You realize that happiness comes from within.

Interesting how these things can be so on.

So Mel did this little personality test and since I was bored I decided to take one too. I'm not sure if it's the same one though.

Your Type is

Qualitative analysis of your type formula

You are:

moderately expressed intuitive personality

distinctively expressed feeling personality


ENFJ type description by D.Keirsey:

The Idealists called Teachers are abstract in their thought and speech, cooperative in their style of achieving goals, and directive and extraverted in their interpersonal relations. Learning in the young has to be beckoned forth, teased out from its hiding place, or, as suggested by the word "education," it has to be "educed." by an individual with educative capabilities. Such a one is the eNFj, thus rightly called the educative mentor or Teacher for short. The Teacher is especially capable of educing or calling forth those inner potentials each learner possesses. Even as children the Teachers may attract a gathering of other children ready to follow their lead in play or work. And they lead without seeming to do so.

Teachers expect the very best of those around them, and this expectation, usually expressed as enthusiastic encouragement, motivates action in others and the desire to live up to their expectations. Teachers have the charming characteristic of taking for granted that their expectations will be met, their implicit commands obeyed, never doubting that people will want to do what they suggest. And, more often than not, people do, because this type has extraordinary charisma.

The Teachers are found in no more than 2 or 3 percent of the population. They like to have things settled and arranged. They prefer to plan both work and social engagements ahead of time and tend to be absolutely reliable in honoring these commitments. At the same time, Teachers are very much at home in complex situations which require the juggling of much data with little pre-planning. An experienced Teacher group leader can dream up, effortlessly, and almost endlessly, activities for groups to engage in, and stimulating roles for members of the group to play. In some Teachers, inspired by the responsiveness of their students or followers, this can amount to genius which other types find hard to emulate. Such ability to preside without planning reminds us somewhat of an Provider, but the latter acts more as a master of ceremonies than as a leader of groups. Providers are natural hosts and hostesses, making sure that each guest is well looked after at social gatherings, or that the right things are expressed on traditional occasions, such as weddings, funerals, graduations, and the like. In much the same way, Teachers value harmonious human relations about all else, can handle people with charm and concern, and are usually popular wherever they are. But Teachers are not so much social as educational leaders, interested primarily in the personal growth and development of others, and less in attending to their social needs

And then there's this one:

ENFJ type description by J. Butt(um, it would suck to have this as a last name, don't you think?)

ENFJs are the benevolent 'pedagogues' of humanity. They have tremendous charisma by which many are drawn into their nurturant tutelage and/or grand schemes. Many ENFJs have tremendous power to manipulate others with their phenomenal interpersonal skills and unique salesmanship. But it's usually not meant as manipulation -- ENFJs generally believe in their dreams, and see themselves as helpers and enablers, which they usually are.

ENFJs are global learners. They see the big picture. The ENFJs focus is expansive. Some can juggle an amazing number of responsibilities or projects simultaneously. Many ENFJs have tremendous entrepreneurial ability.

ENFJs are, by definition, Js, with whom we associate organization and decisiveness. But they don't resemble the SJs or even the NTJs in organization of the environment nor occasional recalcitrance. ENFJs are organized in the arena of interpersonal affairs. Their offices may or may not be cluttered, but their conclusions (reached through feelings) about people and motives are drawn much more quickly and are more resilient than those of their NFP counterparts.

ENFJs know and appreciate people. Like most NFs, (and Feelers in general), they are apt to neglect themselves and their own needs for the needs of others. They have thinner psychological boundaries than most, and are at risk for being hurt or even abused by less sensitive people. ENFJs often take on more of the burdens of others than they can bear.

TRADEMARK: "The first shall be last"
This refers to the open-door policy of ENFJs. One ENFJ colleague always welcomes me into his office regardless of his own circumstances. If another person comes to the door, he allows them to interrupt our conversation with their need. While discussing that need, the phone rings and he stops to answer it. Others drop in with a 'quick question.' I finally get up, go to my office and use the call waiting feature on the telephone. When he hangs up, I have his undivided attention!

Functional Analysis:

Extraverted Feeling
Extraverted Feeling rules the ENFJ's psyche. In the sway of this rational function, these folks are predisposed to closure in matters pertaining to people, and especially on behalf of their beloved. As extraverts, their contacts are wide ranging. Face-to-face relationships are intense, personable and warm, though they may be so infrequently achieved that intimate friendships are rare.

Introverted iNtuition

Like their INFJ cousins, ENFJs are blessed through introverted intuition with clarity of perception in the inner, unconscious world. Dominant Feeling prefers to find the silver lining in even the most beggarly perceptions of those in their expanding circle of friends and, of course, in themselves. In less balanced individuals, such mitigation of the unseemly eventually undermines the ENFJ's integrity and frequently their good name. In healthier individuals, deft use of this awareness of the inner needs and desires of others enables this astute type to win friends, influence people, and avoid compromising entanglements.
The dynamic nature of their intuition moves ENFJs from one project to another with the assurance that the next one will be perfect, or much more nearly so than the last. ENFJs are continually looking for newer and better solutions to benefit their extensive family, staff, or organization.

Extraverted Sensing
Sensing is extraverted. ENFJs can manage details, particularly those necessary to implement the prevailing vision. These data have, however, a magical flexible quality. Something to be bought can be had for a song; the same something is invaluable when it's time to sell. (We are not certain, but we suspect that such is the influence of the primary function.) This wavering of sensory perception is made possible by the weaker and less mature status with which the tertiary is endowed.

Introverted Thinking
Introverted Thinking is least apparent and most enigmatic in this type. In fact, it often appears only when summoned by Feeling. At times only in jest, but in earnest if need be, Thinking entertains as logical only those conclusions which support Feeling's values. Other scenarios can be shown invalid or at best significantly inferior. Such "Thinking in the service of Feeling" has the appearance of logic, but somehow it never quite adds up.

Introverted Thinking is frequently the focus of the spiritual quest of ENFJs. David's lengthiest psalm, 119, pays it homage. "Law," "precept," "commandment," "statute:" these essences of inner thinking are the mysteries of Deity for which this great Feeler's soul searched.

well,
He's been found guilty with first degree murder of Lacy Peterson and second degree murder of his baby Conor. It's so hard to know for sure and only Lacy knows for sure who it was. If he did do it he is a sick and selfish man. ugh. blah. I can't believe someone would do that to another person, and their own child too. ugh.
1:09 pm
wow.
So apparently they have reached a verdict in the Scott Peterson case. They're waiting for the families to gather. This should be interesting.
