The start of school

Sunday the 1st
Work as per usual.
How accurate.

Saw that 7 Eleven sold these. I had heard about these so I wanted to try. I don't like the after taste but I guess it makes you less thirsty than regular coffee?

Monday the 2nd 
Dunkin Donuts for my lunch break. 
I hate that I only have thirty minutes at this job cause I'm such a slow eater.
I really like their chicken and tuna salad crossiant! It's probably as fake as taco bell but so yummy!

Tuesday the 3rd
First day of school!
My classes this semester: Camera Techniques II, Voice III, Pinter & Albee, Human Sexuality Seminar, and Monologue Workshop.
Turns out that Summer and Yuvin from my class last semester are in my voice class! So after picking up our upasses, Summer and I had lunch together at Harold's.

I'm in love with their lemonade because it tastes like the liquid form of lemon heads. Can you say YUM?

Friday the 6th
Had a shift at 6 in the morning. Awful. At least I got to leave as the store opened.
Oh yeah, I dyed my hair dark again. I didn't have enough dye so now it looks like I have cheap highlights -_____-

School hasn't really started unless I've gotten Dunkin Donuts.
Got a bagel and hot chocolate to eat before class.

Sunday the 8th
Ended work early so I went to Hmart with my mom.
I found these midi Pockys. They're super sweet. I like the regular or giant ones better.

Monday the 9th
Before heading to school, I headed to Nordstrom and did something really bad...
I am a damn fool but they're so beautiful! I couldn't stop thinking about them after I saw them! They're the only pair of sunglasses that don't make my nose look like a blob. Forget them being a trend/season style I'm gonna wear these for the rest of my life after what I'm paying. OTL

I had time so I also grabbed lunch from Artist's Cafe.
Chicken caseser wrap. Can't go wrong with that.

Tuesday the 10th

Lunch at Artist's Cafe again with Summer. This is really bad but I'm obsessed. But they're so expensive. :(
Got the chipotle chicken sandwich but it was meh. I'm trying to try everything they have on the menu!

Thursday the 12th
Last day of warm weather. Boo.
Crummy outfit picture brought to you by my school's bathroom. 

Artist's Cafe again. I think I'll just have lunch there every time I have class in the theatre building.
I got their new salad. It looks real pretty but I really didn't like it. The dressing is olive oil based I think and it was just blech for me. I think it would have been much better drowned in honey mustard ahaha.

Finally got my hands on the Lay's flavors. I found the garlic bread and chicken & waffles one randomly at Walgreens and I was finally able to get the Sriracha ones from Mark.
All three suck. I was very sad. Had so much expectations.

Friday the 13th
Was craving my beloved Chick Fil A so I got my fill before work. I was so full.
Someone left their sauces on the table so I grabbed them super quick. I love their sauce T_T Their parfait is whatever though.

Wednesday the 18th
Tried the new sandwich from Dunkin. 
I think I like their food cause they're never plain tasting but this one was meh. Lots of meh food this week.
Oh my gosh the week before, I got a bagel and I dropped it four times in a row in the same spot. Lulz I felt like such an idiot.

We filmed in class that day. 
The cameras and other millions of dollars of equipment in the TV studio are cool but the booth is quite impressive as well.

Thursday the 19th
I was excited to try Artist's strawberry french toast.
More disappointment. :(

Friday the 20th
I bought myself creepers on the way back from work one night (got 20% off too! :D) and I finally wore them out on Friday!
It was a bad idea cause I had work that day so my feet were very sore by the end of the day. I love them though. XD

Yesterday the 21st
A friend (whose name is also Kyle) who I met through Tina invited us to go out with him and his friends for his friend's birthday. I rushed home after work to shower and get ready.
Lulz such an awkward picture. We look like we're not friends ahaha.

A much better picture.
Aww Tina looks so pretty! 

I dunno why I didn't take any pictures at the clubs but it was pretty fun!
Waiting for the valet to get Kyle's car. 
So much thanks to Kyle for inviting and driving us home after everything!


Finishing August

It's the middle of September and I'm only just now finishing up what happened in August! Hopefully I'll be caught up by next week!

Saturday the 17th
I should have ended the last post with these yummy pictures instead of stupid pictures of the storage room but I forgot to take them out of my mom's phone.
Anyways, after work, my mom and I finally went to Ginza to try for the first time!
Even though it's much smaller than Royal, I feel like they had more things I wanted to eat. 
Their strawberries were so good that day. They just need to add a chocolate fountain!
Must drown crab legs in butter! Am I the only baby who still has to have their mom crack em open for you?

Sunday the 18th
Eva's 21st birthday!!!
Kiran picked up Sandy and I and then went to Evanston where Eva was watching a movie with her sister and sister's friend April already.
We had food and drink at the Bar Louie in Evanston even though we have one is Skokie. -_- Eva doesn't plan anything so everyone else but her made the decisions that day.
My drink was the worst thing I've ever tasted. It sounded really good on the menu. Don't get their new margaritas. The vodka sweet tea was good though!

My burning hot shrimp tempura. I wasn't gonna get food but I couldn't have the drink by itself.

We were going to get dessert at this nice lounge but they were closed for a private event so we went to Brickhouse instead. Our April joined us as Tania and her April went to Starbucks instead.
I didn't like my drink again lulz.

We gobbled these up so fast.

Birthday girl!

We're all 21 now! Yay! Wow. We've celebrated quite a number of birthdays together now. 

Monday the 19th
I got a call from Ann Taylor notifying me that I got the job so my mom and I went to Assi to get me some hair dye cause they don't allow non natural hair colors.
I was debating between colors and chose the one on the left because I decided I would gradually go darker.

We had dinner from the court with my mom's friend.
I was gonna instagram this which is why I framed it this way but as always...I forgot.

The soup corner is actually really good! Make sure you order from them when the ajushi is working cause he's very generous!

The last day of my favorite cotton candy hair so I had to selca.

Tuesday the 20th
I dyed my hair the night before and it turned....blonde.
I totally forgot that I was dealing with Asian hair dye that is going to lighten hair and thus...murdered my hair again. I also left it in too long. OTL I'm an idiot. It was starting to heal again too.

I had training that day.
They spend a lot of time, money, and effort for that first training session! All the booklets are in full color and quality paper! I learned that the company has a good number of programs that help women all over the word and they take customer service really seriously. Its a lot more than I can say for a bunch of other retail stores so I feel a little better about working in this company as opposed to others.

And from this day until school started, I worked full time.

Friday the 23rd
The owner of the makeup shop never brings change for the register so she told me to buy bread and get change from that. So I did.
One of the cute little ajushis gave me the extra smoothie he had! :)

Cup lamyun for lunch.
 I need to try the real version now cause it was pretty decent.

Saturday the 24th
Maki for lunch.
It makes me sad they don't have the bogos that Hmart has.

I was really bored cause it was super not busy that day and the owner took her charger out of the store for the first time so I had nothing to do. I entertained myself by drawing a finger family. I was quite proud so I had my mom take a picture when she came to get me.
My mom always takes the ugliest pictures of me.

Sunday the 25th
My granny outfit for Ann. 
I hate that there's a dress code because I don't have anything that fit it. I wear the same three things every time lulz.

McDonald's for dinner.
Their dipped cone is really yummy but I had to eat it so fast. 

Tuesday the 27th
I was really wanting the new doritos taco so my mom and I went after work.
All three aww yeh~ But taco bell is so expensive and not filling!

Wednesday the 28th
Went to Chili's for dinner with mom after work.
I know it's very whatever but we didn't really crave anything that was around.

Thursday the 29th
Dinner at Jun Joo restaurant.

Friday the 30th
On the way to dinner after work, I pumped gas for the first time in my life!
*taken by mom*

We went to the restaurant that replaced Bop & Grill. The food is much better now!
My girl Kang Sora

Mom got the same thing she got the night before.

Some marinated dried fish. I like the sauce but not the fish.

The owner was eating neng myun when we walked in and it made me want it too. It's quite decent. I give it 2nd place in all the nengmyun in Chicago. It would tie 1st with Jo Sun Ok's if they put meat in it.

Yellow watermelon for dessert.
Too bad it wasn't sweet.
