It had been raining a whole lot and there was even a big storm that did some damage.
My roof was leaking from five different places. It was not fun -_-

But the sky stayed pretty.

Wednesday the 5th
Went to Glenview.
They had a Forever Yogurt there so I had to indulge but they were meh.

Thursday the 6th
I was really craving crepes and yelped up a chocolatier called Leonida's.
So cute!
I forgot to take a picture of the crepe...but it was good. The whip cream was really fresh and they made the best Arnold Palmer I've ever had.

Went to Gillson Park.

Went looking for a bathroom and found a much better view of the Baha'i House of Worship instead.

 Monday the 10th
Ordered pizza for dinner after work.

Wednesday the 12th
Finally wore this shirt I bought in London with Leanne a year ago.

Friday the 14th
Sandy moved an hour and a half closer so we finally reunited!!
Eeeee!!! <3

Picked her up and we went to the Naperville H Mart for food and catching up.
The dduk bok gi was surprisingly decent but the jja jang myun... omg...the worst we've ever had. Even worse than the one at Twin Dragon all those years ago! Never thought I'd taste fishy jja jang myun. Filled ourselves with dduk bok gi and chatter instead.

Always on the search for a good canned milk tea...
...Still searching. Good aesthetic, bad taste.

Saturday the 15th
Pretty view but the pond is so dirty..

Visited Sushi O Sushi.
Special requested Chris' palm tree art (ᗒᗜᗕ)՛̵̖

Monday the 17th
Quick dinner at Fahlstrom's Fresh Seafood Market down the street before seeing Scarlet's show.
Pretty good shrimp tacos but the sweet potato salad was weird.

Wednesday the 19th
Headed to the National Museum of Mexican Art.
I think the exhibition is still up so you can check it out yourself.
Or see more cool stuff at http://www.rodrigolara.com.mx/

Took what I could of an outfit picture after getting home.

Thursday the 20th
Being a copy cat.

Friday the 21st
Got up and ready for...

Eva's birthday celebration!
Bowled a couple games and then had cake. Eventually settled on Sushi Station for dinner because Eva doesn't make decisions. (We only went bowling because Sandy chose it lulz.) I rushed off after eating for 15 minutes to pick up Turtle and take him to his last kendo practice.

Tuesday the 25th
Saw ahjushi for the first time in awhile and went to Gogi Nara again.

Went to Java and Mug for dessert.
Strayed from my usual green tea latte cause they added a Thai tea latte to their menu. Still regret it.

Wednesday the 26th
Went to dinner with mom.
Now that's what the pho I'm talkin about.



Tuesday the 7th
I finally booked a job so I went to a fitting.
It's so funny because I met my childhood friend there! I was nervous since it was my first real job so I was glad I was going to do it with a friend.

One of the outfits I tried.

Sunday the 19th
Day of the shoot! 
Ooh~ so official~
Nice view while shooting.

Best work provided meal ever!

That's all for that month!



I was planning on updating a little earlier than this but...I started watching Queen Seon Duk (2009) and I've become way more invested than I ever thought I would be.
It's so good! Really good pacing for a period drama.

June: Wednesday the 3rd
The previous night was my first day of work. I started doing logistics at Nordstrom and the shifts were overnight ones. I didn't mind the hours cause I was up doing nothing at home anyways.
And the sky was always really pretty by the time we got out.

Thursday the 4th
A day I had been waiting for since I was 11 finally came.
o(*≧□≦)o AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Waiting in line.

The moment
✧(๑✪д✪)۶ He's touching my shoulder HE'S TOUCHING MY SHOULDER!!!
I almost cried. I was so stunned that I couldn't say anything and just held out my album to get signed. I'm so mad that I couldn't find the first album of theirs that I got. Next time! (´・益・`*)

Heart was beating so fast waiting...

And the show begins!

End of spam with aegyo Tablo.

It was, to put simply, the best show I've ever been to in my life!! They really know how to energize the crowd and have fun. They're so charismatic and charming and funny. Pros, just PROS! I just...it was one of the happiest times of my life! ▒▒▓█▇▅▂∩( ✧Д✧)∩▂▅▇█▓▒▒ I went crazy and had so much fun! ....And then I rushed to work lmao.

Monday the 8th
Had Peking duck for the first time at Sun Wah!
Mmmm~~ Loved it!

Friday the 12th
Tried Edzo's Burgers also for the first time.
Salted caramel shake

Lobster and truffle fries to go with burgers.

Wednesday the 17th
Tina was in town so we finally went to try sensory deprivation tanks like we had talked about for years.
It was nice and warm but I didn't start dozing until right when our time was up. I also got water in my ear which stayed there for like a month. ~_~
Not gonna lie, I was hoping for an experience like Lisa's:

Went to work later that night. Another good thing about working the night shift is:
McDonald's breakfast is up and ready to go!

Friday the 19th
I had been wanting to try the food at the cafe at work after hearing positive things from everyone so I went.
Got the grilled shrimp salad and some kind of pasta. The shrimps were so good. Heavily seasoned and grilled perfectly. They're the sole reason I got the salad again. The pasta was good too.

And that's the end of that month!
