1. I need a tripod. Right now the only thing that's holding my camera up are flimsy stacked boxes: a disaster is waiting to happen!
2. I never realized how crooked my apartment is!
3. Canadian weather confuses me.
4. CRUNCH TIME. I'm frowning, my first exam is on the April 8th. It's the heaviest class of all four of my courses, and the first one to start ):
5. Hope you have a good weekend!!

Can you bring this in there?

You cannot imagine how ecstatic I was when I learned that my sister decided to grace me with her presences for two days. I miss her, I really do. It becomes apparent when we're spending time today, and more apparent when she leaves tonight.

I showed her around campus. She has a knack for exploring, so I'm glad she had fun while I threw in some quirky facts about the buildings we encountered. After the mini tour, we headed to a local rustic Mexican restaurant I wanted to try for a while. I had high expectations considering the reviews were 4 out of 5 stars! And I must say, the food was quite good! Sister got the Mexican Tamale Dish and I got Taco's dish (weeks worth of cravings in the making haha). Food was fresh, service was great and friendly, and it was a great day overall!

Apologize for not updating any outfit posts! I'm trying to fall into the routine of including this blog into my life. Though right now it's been incredibly hard since I have midterms/papers to worry about and exam season is around the corner too. However I promise summer will be a different story! :) i also will give this blog a new look! i used to be a website designing freak, but it's been years... it will definitely take time haha

I'm constantly keeping update with Japan's news. Every new facts that the media grace us with, my chest becomes heavier and heavier. A couple of people in my uni came together for a great cause: Cranes for Tsunami Relief. For every $1.00 donated to the cause a crane will accompany it. The goal is to raise $1000 by Friday. Although they started yesterday, they managed to raise $770! And every little bit of money is going to Red Cross with the chains of cranes that everyone helped to fold. Any sort of help is great help, so I encourage you to donate anything you can!

Pray for Japan

These are the times when you realize how fragile everything can be. The more I learn, the more I see, and the more I hear, my thoughts and prayers goes out to the people in Japan. It's devastating.

Pray for Japan ♥

According to z103.5 last week, apparently Toronto is getting a late spring? Cue in sad music and myself yelling at the world: "WHHHHHY!" However with this sun constantly shining so brightly, it deceives me in thinking its warm out and I can channel in the spring/summer side of my closet. Bah.

Boyfriend's birthday was on last week Friday, so as for a collective present I took him out to one of his favourite culture food: Indian food. Though I had my fair shares of bad experiences, I must say this particular buffet was scrumptious and very filling! He also held a house party on Saturday for a combine birthday for himself and his housemate. A great turnout I must say! Always nice to see everyone and meet new people. And yes I did wear that many rings! Though by the middle of the night I took them all off due to the many physical damages it was doing on myself and to others hahaha (:

Now that it's Monday, time to get back into reality. I can't believe there's only four more weeks until the term ends and exam kicks in. So not ready!

TIE: le chateau
JEANS (not shown): unbranded
over the last 2.5 years we dated, this is probably the 5th picture we took together! this is by far my favourite hahaha

JEANS: gap
FLATS: me too

Back in Uni? Check
Beautiful day out? Check
Awkward pose? Check
Midterm tomorrow at 9:30 a.m.? Check

Reading week flew by super fast. I did nothing but pigged out, relaxed, and get out of the house as much as possible. Now I'm back, away from home, and nested in my apartment. One of the greatest perks about living here is the bright daylight, day in and day out. I love natural light, I would rather bathe myself in sunlight then artificial light any day!

Also something funny:

My campus is flooded!
