It's hard for me to be motivated to blog these days. I take pictures with the intention of posting them, but I haven't been uploading my pictures to my computer at all since I wiped it a couple months ago, so no pictures lead to no blogging.

I also got my wisdom teeth out last Friday, so I have been cooped up in the house with my face huge. haha. It's finally down to normal size, but still a little sore.

Pinkberry parfait at the airport on my way home. It was almost too much to eat. >< I always get to the airport wayyy too early for my flight. like 5 hours early.

Last meal before my wisdom teeth surgery. My mom definitely spoils me. I couldn't even eat it all though because it was too much food.

My mom got me a batman phone case in Chile. So cute.

And my morning coffee. Good stuff.

I made a scarf for my grandma in 1 day, and I just started working on a new hat.

Pattern here. I'm almost done too. I get too enthusiastic about new projects. Can't stop once I start.

「日」Being Lazy

Music I'm blogging to:

I've just been lying around my apartment being lazy a LOT this weekend. Waking up late, going to bed early (as early as can be expected..) it's been a good weekend. Probably could have used a bit more coffee, but with my lack of homework, I shouldn't complain.

Made hot and sour soup from a mix. Reminds me of home since my mom makes this a lot. And I put large amounts of wakame in everything since I bought a huge package in the beginning of the school year. I particularly like seeing the soup in these bowls that one of my roommates' moms bought. it's orange on the outside and pink on the inside like a grapefruit. so cute.

I fixed a hole in one of my friend's sweatpants the other day, which got me in the crafty mood again. Crocheting like its no body's business. It's definitely nice seeing the rows add up.

It's pretty happy when it warms my lap as I work too.

And ofcourse playing around with picture apps. Ate lotsa yummy things this weekend. If only I wasn't too lazy to actually cook for myself.
I finished one books, started another, but I don't know if I'll be able to finish this one as quickly. I also started watching Game of Thrones today and I gotta admit, it's pretty intense.

「月」Back to Work

I started today back at my old school job. 8 am Monday and Wednesday, plus Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons. I got kind of bad hours considering I work every day, but it'll be something to keep me busy. I like the calmness of the super early morning shift.

I've been reading I am No One You Know by Joyce Carol Oates. It's really interesting, but it's mostly just a collection of depressing stories. They're quite mysterious stories.

Went to the Beach this weekend with my club and all the partner clubs in SoCal. It was a really nice beach day, even though it was a little windy and got pretty cold in the evening. Hawaii and SoCal people are so spoiled with their beautiful beaches when compared to NorCal.

Please excuse my finger in the picture haha. I didn't go near the water, which is fine with me.

The sky was crazy blue. Less happy, I got stung by a bee on my thumb. It sounds dumb but it still hurts a lot and it's been 2 days.
Time to go make more coffee ☆

Allah las last night. First time at the Troubadour. Pretty fun but the crowd was way more lumberjack than the shows we usually go to.
Regret at not buying a poster... And I took a pretty terrible picture but I didn't wanna take another later lol. 

Here's to hoping I don't fall asleep in class today...

「日」San Fran

I've been out and about everywhere this weekend. SF, Oakland, I'm pooped! I went to a bookstore, found some Chuck Palahniuk books, but they weren't cheap so I wasn't going to buy them. After reading the intro to Invisible Monsters Remix, I couldn't resist buying it.

「月」Things to come.

"There were illuminated points in her vision, little pinpricks as though the worn fabric of the visible world was being held up against a far brighter light. She felt in the top right corner of her brain a heaviness, the inert body weight of some curled and sleeping animal; but when she touched her head and pressed, the presence disappeared from the coordinates of active space. Now it was in the top right corner of her mind, and in her imagination she could stand on tiptoe and raise her right had to it. It was important, however, not to provoke it; once this lazy creature moved from the peripheries to the center, then the knifing pains would obliterate all thought, and there would be no chance of dining with Leon and the family tonight. It bore her no malice, this animal, it was indifferent to her misery. It would move as a caged panther might: because it was awake, out of boredom, for the sake of movement itself, or for no reason at all, and with no awareness. She lay supine on her bed without a pillow, a glass of water within easy reach and, at her side, a book she knew she could not read. A long, blurred strip of daylight reflected on the ceiling above the pelmet was all that broke the darkness. She lay rigidly apprehensive, held at knifepoint, knowing that fear would not let her sleep and that her only hope was in keeping still."
— Ian McEwan Atonement (60)
Progress is slow going with this book, but I'll get there. I can relate to that splitting headache though I wish I couldnt.
I'm getting more used to using my work laptop than my own these days. Much keyboard confusion ensues.

So much emotion in one song. Gets me every time.
My house it gonna be really crazy for the next couple of weeks. My mom's cousin is staying with us from this Wednesday till Saturday, then next week we have to prep to go to New York, then go to New York. So much to be done, so little time...

「火」Elanor Rigby

"It made me start to wonder if there were other people so lonely so close. I thought about 'Eleanor Rigby.' It's true, where do they all come from? And where do they all belong?" 
- Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (163)
I love that Oskar makes Beatles references. One of my favorite songs. <3
The morning ritual:
Went to a cafe to hang out with my sister the other day and saw this. I love finding Batman everywhere. 
Have a lovely day!

Catholic girls were also warned not to wear black patent leather shoes or to allow their dates to take them to places that had white tablecloths. A girl was not to wear black patent leather shoes because, supposedly, such shoes reflected up. The nuns believed that a boy could see up a girl's dress by looking into her black patent leather shoes. White tablecloths were to be avoided because, according to the nuns, they reminded boys of bed.
—  John R. Powers, Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up? (65).
I tried reading this book a few years ago, and I thought it was boring. Now I think it's hilarious. Funny how things work out that way. I don't get all of it, since I obviously didn't go to Catholic School growing up, and I barely even practice now, but I get some of it from what my mom's told me. I wonder if it'd be interesting at all to someone who isn't even Catholic.
I started work today. It's kind of interesting, very independent. Might go a little crazy from boredom, but we'll see. I'll probably get really into it once I start coding. For now though, there's a lot to learn. I have to learn JavaScript too. Busy busy.
The headphones I got a couple weeks ago! Happy listenin'

Night falls. Or has fallen. Why is it that night falls, instead of rising, like the dawn? Yet if you look east, at sunset, you can see night rising, not falling; darkness lifting into the sky, up from the horizon, like a black sun behind cloud cover. Like smoke from an unseen fire, a line of fire just below the horizon, brushfire or a burning city. Maybe night falls because it's heavy, a thick curtain pulled up over the eyes. Wool blanket. I wish I could see in the dark, better than I do. 
— Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale (191)
"For those facing tough goodbyes: Lost in Translation" -  (6 Movies For When You're Young and Confused and Facing Change from Thought Catalog)
Feelin dramatic at home. Last few days of rest before I start work on Monday. Very unsure of how that's gonna be. I'd rather be drinkin coffee all day

「木」Nearing the End

I'm not ready to leave here for many reasons.

 Too many tests, not enough motivation to study. Kinda sad to think that things won't be the same next year.
I started reading The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I really like her style so far, but this is just another way for me to procrastinate.

「水」The Grind

Back to school, back to a pile of work. But before I came back to school, spent an afternoon in Palo Alto with my sister. We went in a nice bookstore, but all the books were classics/vintage and not cheap at all. And no Chuck Palahniuk.
George Orwell... so many different publishers. Still need to read most of these. I've only read Animal Farm and 1984.
Saw this one and thought of my sister. Her two favorite things: Hokusai and Math! but blurry pic.

I really want to get a USC sweatshirt. Probably the black one.. but they never have small sizes.. I've been back twice already. Maybe I should get a batman sweatshirt instead.

In the foreground, I sit on a white-painted kitchen chair with my feet propped on a similar table, my legs crossed at the ankle, my hands holding a ream of paper. A note flutters, held by paper clip to the title page. In slanted handwriting the note reads: I demand you savor this while it still reeks of my sweat and loins. Signed, Lillian Hellman.
Tell-All — Chuck Palahniuk
Home for spring break! We ran a lot of errands today. I am torn between spending my time on video games and books. but then again, what's new?

「金」Sunny SoCal

The weather here is insanely beautiful everyday. The sun is strong and it's warm but not too hot. The only bad thing is my skin's propensity to tan. Blasted tan lines!
I guess the sooner I accept my tan fate, the less sad I'll be so I better get on that.
The warm weather makes me miss my days of being a counselor at church camp.

「火」The Reading List

I've been reading a lot of articles on news and semi literary sites lately, which is interesting to me, since in the past I was very much against reading internet articles, complaining how boring they were and how they added nothing to my life.
Here are just a few Articles that I found particularly interesting lately

I want to find some way to share, organize, and bookmark the articles that I like. Maybe I'll start using delicious again

「木」Back in the Swing

I've been back at school for about two weeks now, and I'm just now finally getting into the swing of things. I've been working a lot these days, and don't have much time to do anything but read.
I went on a ski trip this past holiday weekend with my club.
(panda fortune from the day before the trip)
The drive up was like 3 hours but I was really glad that we got there before dark.

I was extremely terrible at skiing and it was pretty scary at one point because I got separated from everyone else and fell down. The cabin we stayed in was really nice and big too. Space for everyone to sleep!!

It was a good weekend.
I was hoping that some of my friends from home would come visit me this weekend, but I'm not sure if it'll work out. We'll see. I should probably start focusing on my classes more instead. haha
