It is pouring. Down right, pouring like it's cats and dogs out. IT IS THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING BREAK! This is absolutely, positively, a-NOT okay. Sigh, oh Berkeley, how you love to torture us, even when the campanile stops ringing (HAHA, like a high school bell...get it? Okay, fine, I'll stop). After an awkward encountering with my professor as I ditched class (I ran into him as he walked in...awwwk), I successfully avoided all my Friday classes so I can get a jumpstart on DESTINATION SDSU! WOOT! A couple of friends and I are road tripping it down to SDSU for the weekend to live it up, escape from the rain, and party hard! Ohhh and to visit a couple of good high school peeps, YO!
Thank goodness it's finally spring break, 9 days of happiness here I come! Cal is definitely burning me out, phew! It's a lot more draining than I imagined, but it's a good kind of draining...well, ish. Now if only this stupid rain would go, go, gooo away so I can enjoy my break and ignore my work! Please!
This upcoming week includes a lot of bumming around in my panda! sweatshirt and yoga really, it's not that different than what I do here at life is sad. I know.
Last Wednesday, I met up with Kathleen of Inspirafashion and Deanna from A California Dreamer at the Sway Spring Fashion Show. It was a fun filled night full of bite sized food, pretty flowy clothes, cuties (WAIT, WUT?!), and beauties! Even though I had to hurry my boot from a BARE Events meeting and scarf down a quick snappy dinner to make the event, and had forgotten Finley (my Nikon) and money (RIGHT, RIGHT!?!?), yet I still had a jolly good time with my fellow Berkeley bloggers!

The weather's been making me feel supes bummy and my brain refuses to put together any feasible outfits, so I've been living in my leggings and nothing else. I'm in a fashion rut, somebody pull me out?
white lace top: thrifted
brown "vain" tank: hand me down
leggings: charlotte russe
rain boots: target ($30)
gray cable knit cardigan: old navy ($10)
own necklace: taiwan
awkward hand positions: ME, ME, ME, ALL ME!

P.S. CSN giveaway winner in the next update! Sorry loves I'm completely lackin' on my blogging duties!

P.P.S. Love you all and thanks for the constant support :)

Where did the time go last week? Gahhh, I've been a busy busy busy bee for one! I've had meetings, concerts (okay, just singular but I didn't want to kill me roll of -s!), tons of homework (barf!), events, parties and...a photoshoot! :O
The past weekend was my first BARE photoshoot and it was a fantastic experience! Saturday morning, the committee and I went to pull clothes for the shoot and boy did it make my heart yearn to go shopping for...well, me! Saturday afternoon came the fitting with our beautiful model and it was a bittersweet experience as some things just don't look as good on as it does on the racks, sigh. But nevertheless, we made it work! Sunday was the actual shoot which went from 11-4:30pm, but it was a whole lot of fun, of eating, of merryness, of silly dancing! Can't wait to share it with you guys when it's completely finished, ah! I seriously can't wait for the next one, if only I could do this for a living, I'd die of happiness! I guess glamour does kill...(Okay, funny side note, my glamour kills is so my AIM sn, oh silly middle school me trying to be all hard and whatnot)
Monday was the Hellogoodbye concert! It was freaking delicious! I discovered two more bands that I'm seriously addicted to now...I'm even listening to one RIGHT THIS SECOND :O So, grab a pen and paper or just open up a Youtube page and type in JUKEBOX THE GHOST and listen to anything because they are gold, THEY ARE SO GOOD! After you fall in love with them and their charismatic performances (I can guarantee you they are 100000x better live) listen to GOLD MOTEL, because they're simply presh! All these songs are making me supes excited for the upcoming warm weather, fingers crossed! Hellogoodbye was epic as well, duh, that's just a given. Perfect road trip music, ayyy ay ayy!
My first post in my brand spanking new foodie column, Eat, Blog, Repeat, is up at Caliber Magazine Blog! Go go go, check it out, please please please with a cherry on top of Francisco Lachowski?! (WAIT, NO! Do not imagine that, he's mine, mine, mine, all mine!!!) Let me know if you love it, hate it, if it makes you hungry, if it makes you want to barf, CRITICIZE ME! I'M GIVING YOU PERMISSION! Be kind though, I'm like a delicate wittle panda bear and you simply can't be mean to little pandas! And if you do, you need to click the little red X and get off of my blog because I cannot and will not tolerate such atrocious behavior!

Corny title, yes, but oh so freakin' appropriate! Just last week, my roomie invited me to her sorority AXO's invite in the city. The theme? AXO July Fourth, how cute right?! Since invites at CAL always fall on Thursday nights, I had a huge dilemma; to study for my stats 2 midterm that was taking place Friday at 1PM or go to a huge (& free!) party in SF...the decision wasn't a hard one to make. My justification was that 2o years, what am I going to remember: that nice fatty A (ok fine, realistically it would be a B at best. grr math, even fake math and I do not get along) on my midterm or the night that I ran free and wild while wearing an American flag with my best friend? So of course I went with the latter because, let's face it, I'm always down for a good time, no matter the consequences (personality flaw on my part, oopsies!)
flag worn as a top: asian party shop ($8)
red skirt: borrowed (f21)
silver oxfords: urban outfitters ($20)
red&blue headband: asian party shop ($2)
Despite the downpour of rain (curses Berkeley weather!) we walked all over the place, not giving a damn about the possibility of us getting pneumonia, in order to get to AXO, to get to AEPI, to get on the bus, cause in the end, it was well worth it. The whole thing was a blurry memory of good times, of clumsiness, of everything that goes with being young (HAHA, GET IT GET IT? CAUSE MY LAST NAME'S YOUNG AND I'M YOUNG?!?! OK, BAD JOKE, FINE HUMPHH!)
I'm a firm believer that college is far more than just studying, attending lectures, and aiming for that perfect gpa. While all that is nice and definitely helpful towards your future, college is so much more than that. It's the place to find your bridesmaids, to find your best man, to find the people you're going to call in 10 years (or 20 years in my case) when your first born is here, the ones you're willing to put do anything for; it's the place to find your true friends.
I don't know if this is the case for everyone, or if I was just incredibly lucky, but the friends I've made here in the last 6 months are closer than most friends (though not all, I love my HS besties to death!) I've maintained during my 4 years in high school. They've seen me at my worst and at my best, they see me when I just woke up, eyes half opened and still drooling, and when I'm fully dolled out, they're there for me at all hours of the night and I'm there for them. I love them so much and can't wait to see what other kinds of shenanigans we're going to get into over the next four years, yippee!

P.S. I don't regret not staying in to study for my stats midterm one bit.
P.P.S. The fact that we get to drop our lowest midterm score doesn't hurt!
