Hello summer!

Woah, it's been a while since I wrote on my blog. So sorry, readers! So what's up with me? I just finished my finals (: This summer is going to be different, but I'm looking forward to it. Many exciting adventures to be coming! I just got accepted into volunteer program to work with children with autism. I was asked to teach them how to sign language and maybe signing songs together (: for now, I'm gonna relax and watch Gossip Girl while catching up with my family and friends. Graduations are coming for some of my friends and boyfriend. My little brother just came home but he has to go back to Georgia for internship a day before Memorial Day ):

Here is my list that I want to do during the summer :) Let's hope I hit all of those bullet points!

-Get a tattoo
-Hiking to Potato Chip Mountain & Garcia trail
-Drink Fat Tuesday
-Go to Balboa Park
-Take a picture next to Kentucky sign
-See a show in Vegas
-Eat at Bottega Louie & Frostbite

More to visit, but I would rather keep it private :) have a good summer!

Found this sign in one of my favorite store :D

A classmate of mine gave his presentation today and my jaws dropped. He was certainly talented at photography. His pictures made our pictures looking like a child took them. Haha, but he created his final project into time lapse photography! How cool is that?! He shot 3,000 to 5,000 pictures of Los Angeles in total of six months. Those pictures were so beautiful and I saw the shooting stars! Milky Way, too! I never saw a shooting star -_- I fell asleep easily, but I hope to catch a shooting star and make a wish one day (:

Kudos to you, D.

I am waiting for the professor to upload this film on his blog so I can steal it to show it to all of you! It might take a time, but here's an example on here so enjoy!

cool & sweet

I had a final project for my photography class and I really struggled on which idea to use. I had an idea that I could snap black and white portraits of friends laughing. The theme would be smiling eyes, but it was time-consuming. Maybe I could do it during my free time. So I chose to do this idea which I bought ice cream at different location and had each person holding the ice cream.
I have a love and hate relationship with this camera, but I decide not to purchase one for myself. I like simple and easy things so I won't be impatient and frustrated with myself over this camera. But this class had taught me a lot with new techniques and lessons from the famous photographers. Thank you, ART 151.

the traveler

I love traveling. Traveling is in our blood. My little brother is studying abroad in Stockholm, starting this fall! Jealous to the max. I always want to study abroad, but those programs at the college I am attending, they suck. Let's hope I will be able to complete my dream by studying abroad in a beautiful country, far away from home (: I want to learn the new language, food, and culture. And share my culture with people of the beautiful country such as Spain, London, Australia, New Zealand, and more. 2013, please hurry!

Lately, I am struggling with myself. After visiting the workshops about grad schools, it hits me that I am so unprepared. It gave me thoughts about what to do after graduating from this school. Go straight to grad school or take a year off? It just feel funny if I don't apply this fall. There are several grad schools that interest me (: BUT. I haven't decided which program I want to be involved in. Oh great. Now I definitely understand why seniors don't want to leave the campus. If I am going to take a year break, I would like to travel and gain experience for my major and maybe finding myself. Just kidding! (: So. Let's hope I will make my own choice sooner.

Anyways, I am looking forward to this summer. I am so excited about flying to Kentucky for my friend's pageant, San Diego for adventures, and lastly, Vegas! But I bet I am going to be very exhausted when I am done with my trips. I am hoping I will make one last trip before my summer ends with my boy (:

Til next time.
 I miss the simplicity of the life.
