LEAVIN' THIS TOWN
So today is my last full day in San Francisco. I’m sad! Yesterday at work was a bit bittersweet… It was sort of silly of me to do an internship after college, instead of “enjoying my summer,” but I’m very happy about my decision. Probably better than anything else I could’ve done. Probably the most meaningful summer I’ve ever spent. I’m going to...
THE SENTINEL SF
I’m definitely not a sandwich type of girl, but dude….. The Sentinel was good. Too bad my stomach shouldn’t take in more than 1/2 of their sandwiches, or in general. I really need to develop a healthy eating habit and start taking care of myself. Hmmm today was second to my last day at work. I was sorta sad, since things got pretty exciting/interesting with the new assignment...
I might be celebrating Thanksgiving in Berkeley with my second family. I could use that time to celebrate, eat good food, and enjoy the company of my lovelies, but I was thinking about also volunteering at Glide by serving the food to the homeless. I’ve always wanted to do this during the holidays, but the opportunity never came up. Not sure if Nuri will be reading this post, but if you...
I need to keep reminding myself. I’m here for God. I’m living for God.
Some of my favorite things in life: 1. Favorite breakfast of choice: Nature’s Path Organic Instant Hot Oatmeal Multigrain Raisin Spice 2. Favorite things to check out at Target: Babysocks 3. Favorite hand lotion: Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater Hand Therapy Okay I’ll continue this later.
MAN. I SUCK.
I get off work around 5PM, Monday through Thursday (gotta love summer Friday hours!) and tell myself that I’ll go home and open my monsterous GMAT book and start studying. My “The Official Guide for GMAT” book has dust sitting on it now. Bleh. Instead, I decided that there are a couple of topics I want to blog about as I wait for my hair to dry. Birthdays! Well, not mine, nor...
FITSUGAR TOLD ME TO DO THIS:
Do 20 push-ups before shower Sign up for a weekly fitness class with a friend Do a long workout on the weekend Stretch before going to sleep or while in bed Dizzaaaaaammm… I religiously follow fitsugar on Twitter and I’m ultimately inspired (at least for today). On the other hand, I’m coming home soooooon <3 Looking back, I didn’t venture into the city a lot,...
I got bored at work (or more like.. avoiding work) and started wondering how much my parents invested on me for the past four years to put me through UCLA. So tuition alone… UCLA Tuition 2005-09: $115,285 THEN there’s the cost of all the allowances I got from my parents , $$$ my mom spent on me whenever we went shopping (I shop with my mom 98%), new laptop, buying this and that,...
Hello, everyone! I’m back from Berkeley and also 5 lbs heavier. (HAHA jk) and I only have one real weekend left. Damn, I think the Bay area is really growing on me. Maybe I’ll move up. Maybe. Maybe. Maybe. I realized that I get really greedy when I go grocery shopping. The Berkeley Bowl owns all types of grocery stores I’ve been to because of their fresh produce and all...
I am injured… my left thumb is burned as an attempt to eat my dinner (which was microwaved). Today was an unusual Friday. Supposedly “graduated” from my summer program, but I extended it until the end of this month. I thought about staying until December, found a cool gig I’d love to work on, but I realized that I need to be home. I was walking back from the ferry...
Buy a black leather skirt, or more like.. find one.
But it’s time to sleep!
COFFEE DOESN'T EVEN HELP ANYMORE
What am I going to do…………………..
WOULDN'T LIFE BE WONDERFUL
… if all I do is travel, eat good food, go shopping, look at pretty things, throw parties, and dress up to look good? I was looking at random people’s blogs (what I do best!) and life seemed so fabuloso for them. And here I am, sitting in front of my desk with 3 articles to read for tomorrow, waiting for my hair to air dry because I don’t have a blow dryer, lots of work piled...
Good cup of coffee this morning from Starbucks. Baristas are now remembering me - no need to repeat my order, they just ask “the usual, miss?” Weekend was good My mom to call when I walk from the MUNI stop to my place San Francisco weather finally warming up My hair surprisingly growing fast! List of things to do back home
I just bought my GMAT book today. …………………… LET THE MADNESS BEGIN (more like when I’m back in SoCal)!!!!!
LIST OF THINGS (FOOD) TO MAKE:
Because I love making lists and also so that I remember: Bruleed grapefruit (BLD specialty, but I can do this!)
NOTE TO SELF:
Get a job that will get me home by 5:30PM … maybe when I’m like 28? but no, I’m not going to take a job that I have to stay at work late even if it pays me millions.
GOD IS BIGGER THAN THE AIR I BREATHE
NEW YORK CITY?
Okay, so I’m thinking about going to New York in September. I haven’t even been home since graduation, and I’ve never spent an extended period of time at my parents’ place since my family moved there towards the end of my senior year. Maybe that’s why it never truly felt like home to me, except for the presence of my parents and my brother. My mom would probably want...
SOUTH OF WILSHIRE
In San Francisco, SoMa stands for South of Market. In New York, SoHo stands for South of Houston. … and there’s South of Wilshire in Los Angeles, but no one shortened it. To follow the formula for above two cities, it should be SoWi, but that just sounds weird. If I start calling South of Wilshire SoWi, will people eventually start using that word? Probably not?
