A Few Changes

Hello~ I decided to change up the colors a little bit and the banner after what, a few years? I also cleaned up the links in the sidebar and fixed up a few pages. Now that I'm finally on my summer break I thought this place needed a little cleanup. That's as far as I'll go in terms of changes, lol. I use this website mainly as a written platform rather than overly concerning myself with coding/graphics. Unfortunately I stopped learning & being interested in that many years ago after life started getting really busy, but I'll never end my love of blogging. If anyone knows of any free and great WordPress theme websites, please point them my way for future reference :)

It's been over a week since I ended spring quarter, so I've been enjoying my summer break. It will be my last summer before optometry school will continue for 3 more years straight, so I'm trying to make the most of it. This last week I celebrated by having all-you-can-eat sushi (my favorite!), SLEEPING IN, cleaning out my room, organizing my files & backing them up, catching up on shows and movies, reading books, hanging out with friends & eating great food, and playing video games.

If you've ever visited my collections page, you'll notice all of the stuffed animals I have. Not pictured are the toys from my childhood as well. I had SO many. I'm kind of a hoarder in that sense…I had a really hard time giving any of my old sentimental toys and cute stuffed animals away. Everything that had a sentimental value or had a good memory attached to it was kept on display or in one of many clear, plastic tubs for storage. I figured I would never give them away, ever, so that I could keep them forever and look at them again. Recently, I've had a change of heart. I decided that I really never look at them since I have so many and many are stored away. It was time that I freed up all that space in my room (my room is very large but doesn't have much space due to all of my toys!) and as a grown woman, these toys were probably better off donated to others. You should have seen the mess in my room for the few days as I sorted through them all! Now my room is much more spacious and I'm looking to buy a dresser & a loveseat couch. I've been trying to go the used route and ideally find a microfiber or leather couch for cheap. I've found one that seems very promising, so we'll see how that turns out.

Oh! I also dyed my hair since this is my last summer and I won't be able to have colored hair during the school year (since it's not "professional"). I finally made myself learn how to french braid my own hair too! This was my second attempt and I'm pleased to say it was pretty good! (I won't lie about how my arms were getting tired from learning how to do it though lol)

Dyed Hair

I'm hoping I'll be blogging much more regularly now that I'm free! *love*

It turns out I did really well on my skills final (the one that I was worried about)! No retake for me! Whoo!

I did terribly on some of my exams in one class, Neurophysiology, however. -.- I'm trying to study "early" rather than even more last minute than usual, […] Continue Reading…

In the long stretch! Case history & communication skills

I've been absolutely terrible at updating. At one point I did think to myself, maybe I should just continue to make little updates about what is on my mind, even if it's about optometry school 95% of the time. I could try explaining the new skills I learn and […] Continue Reading…

We headed to Disney California Adventures first – did not realize they actually opened at 10am and 9am was an "extra magic hour" for […] Continue Reading…

Getting Older & Keeping Relationships

Sometimes I think I've made a really good connection with a friend, but time and life get in the way. For most of my life up until maybe a few years ago, I used to be one of those people who would say, "We should keep in touch; let's […] Continue Reading…
