One year younger

Because it's better to think like an optimist. Didn't capture much moments from last night, but those moments will always be in my heart. I celebrated my 23rd birthday with most of my close friends. Thank you guys for coming out and thanks for the great night!! We pigged out at one of my favorite hot pot restaurants (Lu Gi).



After many many rounds...
Mommy bought me ice cream cake
Fruit tarts from my ladies

I am lucky to have them in my life. My birthday wish is for all of us to spend more time together and for all of us to be healthier and happier! 😘😘😘

Sick, not fun

Really not in the best situation to be having a cold right now, but this cold is tough. I haven't been sick in over a year, and I believe it might be the new vitamins that I switched to. My old vitamins provided me with stronger immune support. I wanted to wash my car today but it's smarter to stay home and rest. I did however went for a Jamba run. My doctor told me to stay away from crowded public places because it's flu season right now. He warned me twice actually. I didn't listen completely and I have no excuse. With this cold going on, it's extremely difficult to sleep at night, including all the toilet trips in the middle of the night.
My favorite flavor- mango a go go

Chilly Sunday morning

If you want to make a change, start by changing your lifestyle; and that is exactly what I am doing now. Despite my busy schedule, I have been sleeping earlier and waking up earlier than usual. This includes weekends. Not only do I get more hours of sleep, but I also get to eat breakfast instead of skipping to lunch or brunch, and I also get more things done in a day. Recently, my daily routines only consist of eating breakfast, work, eating lunch, work, and  going home to cuddle with my cozy blanket. I haven't been feeling like going out much except to satisfy my cravings.

Today's breakfast. I like dining at Garden Cafe because they don't use MSG.

I was initially planning to take spring semester off, but I noticed some conflicts, so I decided to add three online courses-- Sociology, Oceanography, and Physical Anthropology. Two of the courses already began, and I am looking forward to completion. In two months, my schedule will be doubled, but hopefully I won't regret adding these three courses.

For the meantime, I have much planning to do. Below are a few inspirations to aid me in an upcoming project... Looks like I'll have a lot of shopping to do.

You can accomplish more than enough, more than necessary, in one day.

This Body

This body can't wait to be back to normal again. Only two more months left. Make it three because I'll be confined at home like a sick patient for another month.

Leafy green veggies have been a daily consumption, but I still don't eat enough of it. I'm just not a big veggie person. I do love the way my mother prepares broccoli though. I'm also starting to like drinking milk (organic only), especially with my favorite cereal, which are Reese's Puffs. Warm water throughout the day is another routine. I no longer drink coffee, including decaf, but once in a while, I crave tea. Luckily, it has been chrysanthemum tea, because it's caffeine-free. I'm working on cutting down cold beverages, but overall, my body feels amazing and I have never been healthier.

Seven months ago, I was 95 pounds. I am 130 as of now and will continue to gain weight. It surprises me because I don't feel or look this heavy, and sometimes I think the scale is lying. On a bright note, I like where those baggages are going ;)
