I'm aware of the fact that it is actually officially fall, but it hasn't felt like it recently. I stepped outside this morning and it was colder than usual. Should've worn a jacket, Shirley.

The dormitory building next door had a fire drill (or someone pulled it) this morning at like 7:30. I woke up around 8 and saw everyone piling back in. Suckers.

It is now 10 and I am passing time before my next class at the library. So I will leave you readers with some photos by the great Hedi Slimane.

The theme was unintentional.

where the wild things are

This just kind of scares me a little bit.

It's a collaboration between Where the Wild Things Are and Opening Ceremony. I wouldn't wear any of the furry creations...and the wild things are frightening!

I honestly don't remember what the book is about but I think Jeff wants to see the movie.

Maybe that jumpsuit could work for Halloween though.



namie & fendi

Namie at Fashion Week? I would never have expected this!

She was at the Fendi show in Milan. In that case, I'll select some of my favorites from the collection.

she likes to fork herself

I was flipping through an issue of i-D magazine while passing time at B&N when I stumbled across a short editorial featuring model Daul Kim.

["Dirty Diana" editorial from i-D]

She dyed her hair blonde a while ago, but this is the first time I was entranced by it. (She's back to black hair now though). Asians usually can't pull it off without looking trashy. But it looks almost ethereal on her.

Daul may just be my newest muse.

here comes the bride

Really not the mood to blog right now, but it must be done.

Jeff visited me at BU for the first time this weekend. On Friday, we had dinner at the fabulous dining hall and then went to see The September Issue. It was pretty good, but somehow I expected more...

We had lunch on Saturday with my younger sister Kathy. Then it was pretty much lounging around at home before getting ready for Jeff's cousin's wedding reception. It was the typical Asian banquet-style, eating & drinking and listening to a cheesy MC. We left a little early but it was all good cause one of Jeff's other cousin was being an obnoxious drunk.

Today was a rainy Sunday. We were hesitant about going shopping since it was crappy outside, but we sucked it up and walked around for a bit. Didn't buy anything, but I guess I really wasn't in the mood.

Noooo. The weekend is over.

And ugh. People (cough, roommates) suck.



words of wisdom

A word of advice for all you folks out there - learn from your mistakes.

I sure as hell don't.

strike a pose

I'm so sick of classes! I wish the weekend was here. At least tomorrow is Thursday, my favorite weekday since I only have two classes instead of the usual three (and no Japanese to make a fool of myself in).

My friend auditioned for a fashion show for the Chinese Student Association here at BU. I'm confident that she'll make it. They kept trying to get me to audition too but I was like no...I'm intimidated by it all! But I might join the club just so I have something else to do.

And randomly...how amazing does everyone look in this photo? A bunch of the supermodels on Fashion's Night Out. My dear Julia is on the very right. I love all their shoes...!



pink here pink there pink everywhere

My obsession with this color will never stop.
How many of my posts are just photos of pink things? Haha.

The YSL shoes..I DIE.

You would think that now that I'm in college, I would have tons of exciting adventures to blog about.

Quite the opposite, really. Life is ordinary. It is, however, filled with lots of work and headache. I'm already tired of school and wishing it was summer again. Or at least Christmas break.

My days consist of waking up every morning for my classes as my roommates sleep in, sitting through lectures, eating dining hall food, and then spending as much time online as I should be studying. And more recently, listening to the same Korean songs again and again. Haha.

I haven't been giving my studies my full potential. I swear I will really try.

Isn't her apartment just adorable? I love how there's so much pink. There isn't much room, but that's what you get for living in Tokyo.

Oh, and btw, "she" is Baby Mary, who owns a boutique in Tokyo called Faline.

It was a totally random, spur of the moment thing, but my sister decided she wanted to go shopping on Newbury St. the other night so we went after we ate dinner. I have to say it's nice to shop on a Monday evening when there aren't too many people.

It was pretty successful. I got this kit of samplers from Sephora of samples of a bunch of eco-friendly products. And then I also bought a pair of jeans from Urban Outfitters. They were both $20 so I couldn't resist...BAD SHIRLEY.

There were also a pair of boots I wanted from 344...ankle wedge booties! Maybe next time, hehe.



Oh, so tasty looking.

Just distracting myself from the essay I'm writing for my "American Generations in the 20th Century" class. Interesting topic, I just hate work.

Maybe blogging will make me feel better.

I have never been so frustrated in my life

It sucks.

I want to scream. But I might wake my roommates up.

just another weekend

I feel really tired for some reason...even though I slept in this weekend while visiting Jeff. His room at Clark is just so freaking dark I can't tell that it's morning!!

I took the train up to Worcester after I got out of classes on Friday. I feel like we did something that night but I can't really remember so it must not be that significant.

Saturday started out slow-ish. A bunch of us went to a nearby "mall" (meaning a plaza) to browse and then ate at Red Robin's. It was alright. I had a cheeseburger - and so did everyone else, but in variations. After we went back to Clark and everyone was getting ready for a dance that was happening.

Sooooo then we went over someone's apartment and started "pre-gaming". And then we moved to another suite after a while...and then we finally went to the dance. The theme was "geek" so everyone was wearing plaid shirts, sweaters, suspenders, and of course the geeky glasses. It was so freaking hot where everyone was dancing...SERIOUSLY. Your glasses would smog up when you entered and within a minute you are drenched in sweat. Legit.

But yeah it was alright. Today I woke up late again (haha) and I had lunch with Jeff at our usual Vietnamese restaurant in Worcester. Then I waited for the Greyhound bus back to Boston and took the T back to BU.

Now it's late(ish) and I'll just be watching the Video Music Awards for the rest of the night.




[the good 'ol summer days]

"You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there." -Bob Marley

I love this quote from Le Love blog.



do me more

Namie's Best Fiction concert DVD comes out tomorrow! Too bad I won't be able to get it here in the US of A. But you know what I can get? Magazines. She's on a couple of them this month. I'm just going to share a few scans from the October issue of Ginger.

This photo was too lovely not to share. A pink Eiffel Tower & glass bunny? I WANT.

labor day

Even though I find myself with plenty of spare time here at college, I haven't been keeping up blogging that well. I think I've just gotten lazy...

It was a long weekend this week. I am going to keep it as short & simple as possible. (And there will be random photos scattered about.)

After I was done with classes on Friday, Jeff came by BU and we had some
Korean food at the 88 Food Court before heading back to Clark. He and his roommates were having a "suite-warming party". Parties aren't really my thing, but it was alright.

[New wallet from my sister, it's a lot more neon than it looks!]

On Saturday, Jeff and I went to his sister's house to help out with her wedding reception favors. She's getting married in October! You'll have to wait and see what they are. It was also my friend's birthday and the three of us went to Plaster Fun Time for fun. Our pieces are not finished yet, but they're gonna be awesome.

[My hippopotamus "piggy" bank]

[Jeff's cheeseburger thing]

My family had a BBQ on Sunday for Labor Day (?). Lots of food and old people I didn't recognize. After all that, I went back to Clark with Jeff again. The night consisted of movies, Wii, and karaoke. I'm still tired right now.

[Making a face]

Today a couple of Jeff's friends came along and we all went shopping at the Natick. After some browsing, we went to eat at Minado's. But we arrived too early for dinner and waited in the nearby Newbury Comics, laughing at Chuck Norris & Mr. T jokes. Then we ate.

[New magazines...perhaps pink is gonna be big in October?]

Now I am back at my dorm, working on my homework assignment for my Writing 101 class. I hate writing, yet I like blogging...



first day

Phew! I am officially done with my first day of classes. It wasn't so bad. I only had three of my classes today - Japanese, US History, & Statistics.

My Japanese class was the smallest of the three. My professor seemed nice, but she kept talking in Japanese even though we didn't know what she was saying...but we did learn some greetings that I should practice. I have a bad memory.

US History was in a lecture hall, so there were probably more than a 100 of us. I forget when I have the smaller discussion class for that. It's the same for my statistics class. I think my professor said there were like 125 of us. He has a Armenian accent so it was a little hard understanding him sometimes.

It's kind of annoying that I live on the other side of campus than where my classes are. I guess the exercise is good though. But it's really hot!

Tomorrow I only have my writing class. That's the one I'm kind of nervous for...

gossip girl

Olivia Palermo has a very classy & sophisticated style that I quite admire. Just a few picks of her recent outfits:

She could be called the real Blair Waldorf, from what I've heard. I've never watched "The City", but the commercials sometimes make her seem like a real bitch!
