10 Things You Hate About LOVE.

Haha gotcha, I intend to make a catchy title to attract some audience.

This article I wrote way back a year after I graduated highschool.  Actually this is my first time to write things and through the help of my sister I was able to make a very good story. Its a true story by the way.

Probably in the future I’ll add an episode because the story isn’t finished yet when you read it. When I get a chance I will add some cool episodes.

The story takes place in my highschool school, until now I still remember her…

Here it goes:

      Well everyone experienced this puppy love right? Unless you’re a 5 years old reading my blog lol. Anyways, experiencing puppy love is cool and it helps us explore our emotions, build our self-confidence and attitude. Somehow, love helps us find our true self or self-identity through the eyes of the person we love and adore.  Compare to true love, puppy love seems easier to handle; we are most likely to get hurt or be sad when true love fails, while puppy love can just slip away, as if it’s just a wind that passes by..
Today I will share my own story about love and how it made me a good person even though we didn’t make it to last.

man got 8 years for stealing 4$ cheese!

Woodland cheese shoplifter gets 7 years 8 months in prison

Published Tuesday, Mar. 02, 2010

A Yolo County judge on Monday sentenced a man who walked out of a store with a package of cheese in his trousers to seven years and eight months in prison.

Prosecutors had originally sought a life sentence for Robert Ferguson under the state’s “three strikes” law. They dropped that bid last month, saying a psychological report had convinced them that a life sentence wasn’t warranted.

At Monday’s hearing, Deputy District Attorney Clinton Parish urged Judge Thomas Warriner to consider at least one of Ferguson’s prior strikes – one for burglary and another for assault with a deadly weapon – and to sentence him to a lengthy term.

Parish said Ferguson was a career criminal who wouldn’t change. He had 13 prior convictions and had spent 22 of the past 27 years behind bars, yet still would not obey the law, the prosecutor said.

In 1994, Ferguson had escaped a three-strikes sentence, “Yet here we are again,” Parish said.

Defense lawyer Monica Brushia told the judge that Ferguson’s six prior burglary convictions occurred 30 years ago. His misdemeanor assault conviction was for throwing a soda can at one of his siblings when he was a teen, she said.

No weapons or injuries were associated with his crimes, Brushia told the judge.

She argued a psychologist’s report had concluded Ferguson was bipolar and had trouble controlling impulses to steal during manic phases.

His latest crimes were so petty that they hardly merited a prison sentence, she argued. “We’re talking about a pack of cheese,” she said.

On Jan. 6, jurors convicted Ferguson of two counts of petty theft for snatching a woman’s wallet from the counter of a 7-Eleven store and for stuffing a bag of Tillamook shredded cheese worth $3.99 into his pants at Woodland’s Nugget Market.

The Yolo County District Attorney’s Office charged the thefts as felonies.

When it came time to sentence Ferguson on Monday, Judge Warriner chose a middle ground. He accepted a probation department recommendation to disregard the prior strikes and to sentence Ferguson to the upper term for petty theft with priors.

The judge gave Ferguson 825 days of credit for his time in jail awaiting trial and said Ferguson would be required to serve half his sentence in prison. He will be eligible for parole in less than three years.
