July 12, 2013:
after i got back from Champaign, Loyola was hosting AP workshops for high school teachers and Physics was one of those workshops, so we got to have some of their refreshments hehe. i had sooo much coffee that week ahahaha
tea & banana muffins :3
the tea inside the cup is mine. i think Cassie ate the other muffin.
after work, i met up with Jessica, Jin and April to go to the Taste of Chicago wooo (it wasn't that exciting ahaha)
Jessica & Jin! I don't know where April is haha
so April got too many tickets lol and decided to get lobster haha but there was only a small piece and two pieces of potatoes LOL
and the lobster was so freaking hard to eat. look what happened ahaha:
i had to take a picture haha it was too funny
after getting some food, we went over to one of the beer stands because Jessica wanted to get a beer.
another view of the Taste while waiting for Jessica to get her alcohol haha
after Jessica finished her beer, we went over by the Jay Pritzker Pavilion to go see the food trucks
there was a band singing there and a lot of people were there. i don't know if they were actually listening to the music or not haha
walking towards the food trucks:
the weirdo & the drunk LOL
there were policemen with horses by the Pavilion and Jin and April decided to go touch one of the horses and she called the horse "a handsome young man" AHAHAHAHA
the policeman asked if she was drunk ahaha
Jin wanted to get something from this food truck because the color of the truck was the same as my cellphone case color ahaha
but no one ended up getting anything from here
Jessica wanted to get rainbow ice cream so we went back towards the food stands, and we decided to go towards the Buckingham Fountain:
after Jessica got her rainbow ice cream, Jin and I got some gelato and April got crepes. Then with the last 5 tickets i got a chicken empanada:
i didn't like the chicken lol but i did like the bread haha. should've gotten veggie D:
while we were finishing up our food, we couldn't find a table or a bench to sit on, so we decided to just sit on the sidewalk hehe:
Jin saying something? i dunno lol. Jessica being tired after going to the Taste two days in a row. April finishing up her drink
after finishing all our food/drink, we decided to go to Chinatown to see if we can take the sticker pictures haha.
as we were heading out, we took pictures of the entrance to the Taste:
right when we got out of the Taste, i noticed this statue:
it looks like the horse is crying ahaha
and this too:
the haunted hotel.
on our way to Chinatown wooo:
April was tired lol
trying to cover up Jessica now haha
and then she gave up. muhahaha i win!
so no one knew (and i forgot) that red line is going through major construction and rerouted the trains after roosevelt, so we had to go back and forth on the train and take the shuttle to get to Chinatown lol
Jin on the "accordion" part of the shuttle ahaha. she was the only one sitting there
once we got to Chinatown, we went to the building with the sticker pic machine, but the building was closed for the day D:
but now we know where it is, so next time!! hehe
since we were in Chinatown, we decided to go get bubble tea. we were originally gonna get it at Joy Yee's but i wanted Saint's Alp's green tea bubble tea and Jin said their almond milk tea was the best haha
the drinks that day weren't really all that great :/
after we got our drinks, we headed back home.
this was handed to ppl who were 21 & over at the Taste. i think this one used to be April's? lol because I didn't get one haha.
i was doing something and someone just put it on me lol either Jessica or April :P
July 17, 2013:
i was at work when Jessica texted me because she wanted to go get bubble tea but i was at work :(
so she went on a walk with Chris and met up with me after i get back home to go eat and get bubble tea!
got steak burrito bowl:
yummmm. haven't had Chipotle in forever!!
after we finished eating, we met up with April and Katrina at Liquid Fusion
yay green tea latte! i've been craving this for the longest time ever!!
April's tea and fruit bingsoo.
it didn't really taste like bingsoo haha. it was okay XD but after eating the bingsoo, my green tea latte didn't taste like anything because the bingsoo was so sweet -_-
Jessica, Chris, April & Katrina :)
after sitting around at Liquid for a little, April and Katrina went off to study more for their PCAT they were taking the next day XI (i think they both did pretty well :D)
Jessica, Chris and I went over to Chris' and watched:
the movie was pretty good :) and Ryan Gosling was hot as usual haha
when i got back home, i found this:
my cellphone finally has a screen protector!!
April's a boss at putting on the protectors haha (she even got paid to put them on dannggggg) so she came over to my house and put the protector on for me the next day hehe
i was asking her jokingly because i take forever and suck at it, but she actually did it for me because she's awesome and nice :3
July 18, 2013:
i was planning on going to work, but i got back home way too late the day before and slept really late;; so i couldn't go in because i was so tired D:
i think i slept till like 2 or 3 haha and then April texted and invited me to get Pita Inn with her and Jin.
i found out Jessica and Chris were also coming after she picked me up haha
i haven't had Pita Inn for the longest and it was the first time for Jessica! WTH??
my lamb kabob sandwich & hummus w/ pita bread. yum. and April's beef meal in the background haha
April, Jessica & Chris
Jin & her chicken thing haha
after we finished eating, we headed to Joy Yee's to get bubble tea since it wasn't that far away
we (well Jessica and Chris) had a weird/awkward moment there ahaha
anywayssss our bubble tea!!:
Chris and Jin both got avocado bubble tea (eww) and April got lychee & melon. i got strawberry & banana like always haha (Jessica was talking with the people she and Chris bumped into there)
July 20, 2013:
this night actually started on the 19th lol with Jessica, Chris, Rey and Elise at DMZ, but they went to meet up with Artie after we finished eating and drinking, and Jin, April, Tina and I went to downtown to go clubbing lol and it was past midnight by the time we got there.
Jin found a password on fb for two clubs, so we decided to go give them a try because Jin really wanted to go clubbing and the rest, except for April lol, wanted to go dancing as well :3
entrance to NV Penthouse.
so we got there around 1 andddd the place was empty...and tiny LOL
see how empty it is? haha
you can't really see but Jin and Tina are getting drinks from a guy haha. It was Jin who got asked lol she would get asked, she would.
Jin didn't know i had flash on ahaha
Jin and her redbull & something LOL
Tina and her coke & rum. awww she looks adorable :3
after they finished their drinks (i helped with Tina's haha) we left the place haha and walked around the streets till a little past 2.
the other bar we went to was called Spy Bar. it was bigger than the first one and there were people there, but it wasn't packed or anything.
we stayed there for like an hour haha. none of us were really digging the music. the dj wasn't that great... it was like the same music (or same type, i don't know.. it sounded all the same;;) for the entire hour....
the best part of that club was the fire extinguisher lol and copying the "dance moves" of the guys dancing there ahahaha it was so funny. OH! and the guy who kept on coming back for Tina ahahahaha
the clubs weren't that great but it was fun! :D
so this upcoming semester is my last semester at Loyola. WHAAAAAT. i can't believe i'm going to be graduating this Decemeber... wtffffff
but anyways, since it's my last semester, i have to start prepping for grad school and start looking for an internship for the spring. yikes!
i haven't started looking for the internship, but my new adviser that i got to choose haha has agreed to help me with finding one, so hopefully that won't be a problem XI
with the gre....i kind of started studying for it haha, but i really haven't been studying it rigorously;;
actually, i haven't really done any of the things i was planning on doing...-_- well not as much as i wanted to...FAIL
BUT! i did start really studying since the 19th haha. so on the 20th, after getting back home, i slept for 3 hours and went to school to study some more :3
i had the whole table to myself and the view of the lake haha
the library closed at 5pm that day because it was a Saturday :( so i went to the Damen Student Center:
there was only one other guy there haha
so on that day, i realized that i can really focus on things in a big open space haha. i can't believe it took me a bazillion years to figure that out ahaha.
well i've been doing a good job at finding places to study, but i didn't see the connection until that day XD
after studying till 5:30, i met up with Jin at Five Guys to get burgers.
i've been craving Five Guys for over a freaking month! and finally!! T^T:
my little hamburger & little fries. little fries were like regular/large fries haha.
i love how Five Guys always just dumps the fries in the bag. the fries were more than enough for both Jin and me.
Jin preparing her cheeseburger
she got so many compliments on her fishtail braid haha
after eating, Jin and I both went home and I watched wgm hehe
ever since i got back from my sister's, i've been putting on polish on my nails hehe and normally, i like really plain or dark colors, but i started liking fairly bright colors lately X)
so i purchased four new colors:
the Milani one's more like a teal and Sally Hansen's is sky blue. the red one is so hard to put on because the brush is too wide for my nails D:
the green in the back was only $2 and it sucks... the pinkish one is my mom's
i don't know if you remember, but i think i mentioned in the last post that my desktop needs a wifi adapter, so i got one from Amazon.
but the shipping on its own was super expensive for some reason but it qualified for super saver shipping, so i got two things along with the adapter to get the free shipping lol
i bought this two years ago at Champaign for Jin and me, but my Finn decided to break a month ago ToT
i was really sad and wanted to find the kep cap, but i couldn't find it anywhere in store and it was too expensive for a key cap online
so i gave up and got a different key cap the last time i was at Champaign and got a Finn key chain with the adapter
it looks a little different and it's a bit bigger but he's still Finn so i'm all good now haha
the other thing i got is a book:
she's one of my physics professors' wife, and i've met her twice during physics gatherings. i really wanted to read one of her novels, so i decided to get it :3
i haven't started reading it yet, but look what's inside:
awwwww sho cute. their daughter is adorable. her cheeks. omg. her cheeks.
Farheen and i love sitting by the babies during physics gathering ahaha. they're adorable! XD
so the other day, i was looking through my old posts and found this picture:
dang... i only had 32 pictures 2 years ago..
128 pictures!!! so many pictures and memories :3
and after taking 130 pictures, the batteries for my Polaroid decided to die... which happened while i was at the Taste.
i thought i broke the camera because the lens wouldn't go back in. scared the shit out of me..;;
but i bought the batteries on the 19th (they were freaking $17 -_-) and finally got to find out what the mystery films were
they are colored frames. so the other mystery films are white haha
btw isn't the picture "artistic"? haha. it was done on purpose... jk. April was just being a hater LOL but i still like the picture so i forgive ahaha
i think this will do for now. i was supposed to post after the 18th, but i kept going out and didn't get to update ahaha
anyways, thanks for reading and have an awesome day :)
