My favorite weather is when it rains and is sunny at the same time.
Apparently these are referred to as ‘sunshowers’, which makes me like them even more.
I automatically judge you a little bit if your
tumblr website has an automatic music player.
I just had a “mature student” moment.
I want to start taking more photos.
Sometimes I’ll wake up & find that my eyelashes are perfectly curled.
& there’s a small part of me that can’t help but wonder if my roomies are curling my eyelashes in my sleep…
Twix: I’ll only eat the cookie part.
Peanut Butter Cups: I punch out the center and only eat that part
Kit Kat Bars: I bite off the excess chocolate and only eat the wafers
(Unless it’s a dark chocolate kit kat, because I will eat everything at an alarmingly fast rate.)
I like to eat 1” slices of zucchini/pumpkin bread. I’ll usually cut those into even smaller pieces while I eat them.
Whenever I eat cheeseburgers, I will eat in increasingly smaller bites until I get to the end, which I will usually not eat.
I don’t usually eat my pizza crusts.
Sometimes I like to snack on carrot sticks or lettuce without any dressing/dips.
for a boy to take me to an aquarium
normally i would put something like this in my actual journal, but the lights are off since my roomies are sleeping & I wanted to note this before I forget…

So after a “Gosh-I’m-feeling-so-damn-crappy-whywhywhywhy” kind of Wednesday, life has really picked up. Spent most of Thursday in a haze, but felt a little better once I got out of physics discussion and realized that it was officially the start of my weekend.
I had plans to meet with Karin & happened to run into Vanessa (<3), which was a really nice surprise. Karin and I went to CREAM, and I was only going to buy one cookie, but I realized I only had 55 cents in my wallet. Ten cents short of buying a cookie, and they were cash only! Lucky for me, a worker who was just getting off duty heard what was happening & ended up helping me pay for my cookie. SHE WAS SO NICE! I kept on apologizing and thanking her. After that it was a quick stop at my flat and then I was off to watch Parks with Karen. Pancakes, cupcakes, mashed potatoes, popcorn, petting chinchillas, just sitting and talking … what perfection. When I was walking home I just had the biggest grin on my face & was just happy to be happy.
Then I hopped into a car and headed to DK’s midnight ‘surprise’. It was nice re-meeting people and awkwardly standing there watching everyone talking and laughing. One thing I realized: I genuinely enjoy people watching. But that’s a topic for a completely different post.
Afterward I vented a bit of my stress to my roomies, who were so sweet & just listened and encouraged me. Sadness followed by catharsis and laughter and strangeness. Good times <3
Friday: quick recap because this post is getting quite lengthy
Started my day baking, which is really just such a nice way to start the day. Made some pumpkin bread and then watched HIMYM. Oly came back for lunch and she surprised me with boba. Yay!!! Made some ravioli and then headed on our way to the study abroad fair. A complete stranger walked into MLK and told me that I was very pretty and that he had to go meet a friend, but just wanted to let me know. I didn’t really know quite what to do other than to awkwardly laugh a lot, and I have mixed feelings about the situation. I’ll just take it as a nice gesture. I got to meet a lot of new people, which I always enjoy, and then I redeemed my Tully’s coupon and bought myself a drink and sat on Sproul with a crossword.
On my way to the postgraduate study abroad fair I helped three Filipino business men take a picture by Sather Gate & gave them directions to the UC Berkeley west entrance. Went to the fair, made another friend, and got so inspired to become a better student and figure out my life so that I can study in the UK.
Came back, realized I got my Pottermore welcome email and got sorted into RAVENCLAW. YES. Went to the CMF and was even more inspired by the creativity and skill of the students at Berkeley, then went to a spontaneous movie night at a friend’s apartment.
so grateful for the wonderful people in my life
- Me: Now is just a time to really enjoy life and you don't need to worry about things like finding a job.
- Christine: But you're doing both! You're doing TRoth!
- Kristina: TRoth?! You need to TRumblr that!
- Christine: She's doing three things. What's another way of saying both, but for three?
- Me & Kristina: All...
