When In Westwood

When in Westwood, visit UCLA, eat some delicious Korean BBQ, and of course shop at little boutiques! (Note: I actually went 5 days ago, but I kept on postponing my post. I'm afraid I'm getting lazy :/)

I'm afraid I have big hands...but it's all right, right? Since I'm tall, my hands are only proportional. But once, a guy said my hands were large. But he was comparing them to two 5'2" girls...of course my hands are large compared to theirs, stupid boy! I'm 5'9"! I take it back; I do not have large hands. I have regular sized hands for my size >_<
Anyway, back to UCLA! I went there Friday with my sister who is a 4th year student there! Congrats to my sister for reaching the end of her undergraduate education! Now everybody please wish her luck on getting into a good graduate school! Go, sister!! ^_^
UCLA is a very beautiful school. You can take a picture anywhere, and it'll look like it came out of a catalog :o One of my favorite places is the fountain at Janss Steps. I think water makes any scenery look fresher and more appealing.

I'm at Powell Library :) The library is across Royce Hall, UCLA's most famous building. Ironically, I did not take a picture of myself there...I feel so much regret as I'm blogging and looking through my pictures T_T
After finishing up business at UCLA, my sister and I headed off to the streets of Westwood! I am seriously worried about my physical condition now because walking around for only a few hours...I could feel it everywhere...

Maybe I should exercise more instead of indulging in delicious treats like this Gushi plate (Korean beef, yo).  I swear I'll change!...later! No, really, I don't want to gain Freshmen 15...nonono!

Oranges Or Apples (PC's or Mac's)

(Part of) my college essentials list ~

Bed covers. Check. Shower supplies. Check. Cool clothes. Check. New laptop...CHECK! 

I'm so excited! Today, I got a new MacBook Pro! It's so cool *o* I had my eye on it for a while but thought it was way too expensive. But inside, I really wanted it. Have you guys ever heard of that idea where if you really want something, you just keep wishing for it? Like putting it out into the universe and letting things just work out? Proactive, huh? :DDD So basically, my wishful thinking came through! My family got me a MacBook Pro as a college gift! THANK YOU, FAMILY PLUS UNIVERSE! (though mostly family of course ^ ^)

Before you think I'm spoiled, let me tell the stone age device I was using. It is time to confess that all my previous posts were done by a battery dead HP (when I see HP, I automatically think of Harry Potter, but that's not it...). Well, I still am amazingly fortunate to get her dream laptop for college :) The pressure of this MacBook is making me feel even more ambitious about my college career. I have to work hard to earn this MacBook!

I also got a hot pink case ^_^ My MacBook needs to be well dressed, too! I am a bit worried, though. I heard that the hardshell cases are better because the MacBook is susceptible to dents since it's made of aluminum. Although I knew this, I bought the soft sleeve because it was prettier...I promise to think more carefully and make more sensible and practical decisions in the future! 

Now I am all ready to go to college! My college checklist is complete! And it sure ended with a bang :D

Clothes note: Forever 21 dress, Target leggings and boots, Zara purse, 13 inch MacBook Pro, Raspberry Incase sleeve LOL

The Office (Actually, I Work At A Tutoring Center...)

Are you hungry? Sorry this is such a messy picture...I was too busy eating seconds of delicious of BJ's pizza to notice :D

Was I at BJ's with family or friends? Or am I a loner who likes to enjoy an entire pizza all to herself in a family restaurant? While both options are correct, I was actually at a workplace gathering. I feel so grown up saying that. "I went out with my coworkers." "Yeah, after WORK, the other WORKERS and me are going out for dinner together." Did my silly imaginings just ruin my previously established maturity? Oh well, it happens :)

Before today, I had barely had full conversations with some of my coworkers. I was worried that I would feel out of place at this gathering. However, my love for food and my even greater love for free food figured that I would enjoy this gathering regardless of who I was with. But we all know that depending on the company, food can taste a lot different.

BJ's has pretty good pizza, right? But what about those in between moments when you're waiting for your food or you just finished a plate and have to take a break before taking on another helping? For some it gets boring or awkward to not have someone to talk to. And the people around you might notice, too. Maybe they'll try to make conversation with you, but it'll be about the food or why you're not eating (hello, you have to pace yourself). Luckily, my work gathering was not like that. At first, when I saw that I wasn't sitting next to people I was most familiar with, I thought this might be boring. But I am lucky enough to work with very open people who were willingly to talk to me about anything ^ ^ I think I lucked out with this workplace because everyone is so friendly to me :D Please x 100 let me work with nice people again!

 A really nice guy was giving me advice on Berkeley. I talked to someone else about her new haircut lol. Another person told me about her backpacking trip to Europe. The guy in the picture told me not be too embarrassed about getting lost on the way while sounding extremely embarrassed for me. Company you enjoy makes the pizza you would normally enjoy taste much better!
I actually got lost on my way to BJ's. I wonder if I'll get teased about it later...Oh well, it happens ^ ^ I had a good time :) How do you guys feel about your coworkers?
