I want this floral dress. It is flowy and have my colors that complement each other. I think I could pull off this dress. If I can get everything I want in life, I'd be broke. So, I will just look at this dress frequently and cry when someone else finally buys it.

Hmm, macarons do look pretty good. Today, Andrew, Christine, Sandy and I attempt to make some with lemon and vanilla fillings. They did not turn out the way we want, but they were good! I will upload some photos of the process in the upcoming days. The photos above are from pinterest. I hope I will be able to make macarons like those one day! :D I think if I ever get an apartment, I'd love to try again, or well at someone else's house since we don't have a functioning oven. Overall, it was a fun dayl

After awhile I realized that he nodded a lot. It was then when I realized that he probably didn't understand much of my English. I tend to talk pretty fast as well as mumble. Only my closest friends would understand or even hear me when I mumble. So, I started quizzing him. I know, this is not the best method to befriend anyone. I asked him if he knew what I was saying before. He shook his head. Oh the horror. I felt so horrible. So, after I talked a bit, I'd ask him whether he knew what I meant. Like, I asked him if he knew what "psychology" was. For awhile, he was stumped. Then, I asked him what he did in Korea. Apparently he was a reporter. Pretty cool, right? So, that's why he's a Radio-TV-Film major.
Anyway, I didn't know what else to say after awhile. Also, he stopped eating. In a huge plate of muffins, he ate half of them. Well, all the muffins were cut up into fours, so he probably just ate like one and a half muffins. I didn't know how to say good-bye. So, I told him to join me to fold cranes for this fundraiser that would help Japan's relief. He said no thanks so that was that.
Walking outside of the TSU Courtyard, we bid farewell to each other and went our separate ways.
Anyway, getting to the point of this post, the next day on facebook message he writes this cute (sounds so Asian) message:
Thanks yesterday~I will stop by the woman center on friday later~
let's hang out after exam~^^
Ah, cute note, right? I didn't know that people still write thank you notes these days. I use to write thank you notes all the time--well on Facebook. When people gave me a ride home, I'd write a note of thanks. I tell them thank you in person the next day. All those shenanigans that it probably got annoying.
I guess after awhile, I stopped writing letters of appreciation. I just assumed that people would know that I am thankful of them. Sometimes I forget that people want to feel appreciated. I think most people aren't exactly grateful of me as a friend. I complain a lot. I unintentionally judge strangers (behind their backs). I assume a lot. Sometimes I am rude. I'm not exactly the greatest friend in the world. So, I am grateful for those that manage to stick with me through the thick and thin.
I guess it is somewhat of a social norm for some people in different countries to always give thanks. I'm going to try to remember to give my thanks to everyone around me. Thanks for being there. :)

I can't believe I cried. I'm working right now at my receptionist job. I'm not suppose to be watching Japan disaster videos on youtube or the news. No one saw me cry, so it didn't happen right? I just can't believe it. Everything is REAL.
Look at the videos I saw here.

I don't know much about shoes except for the fact that mine do not last. I want a pair of shoes that are comfortable, simple looking, and long lasting. These look like the one! When I saw these oxfords on etsy, I was in love. I was so tempted to order a pair but I held off. I still haven't ordered a pair now because I feel I own a little too many pairs of shoes. I own less than 10 pairs of shoes which is too many already. Well, most people own more than 15 pairs of shoes, but still, I don't want to look frivolous!

I love looking at Japanese Craft Pattern books. All the clothing designs look so minimalistic yet chic. I want to go out in the streets with those dresses. Since I can't find most of these dresses anywhere, I'd love to sew them myself. Mommy has a sewing machine, but it's one of those commercial factory ones so it's pretty difficult to use. I think I might get a sewing machine myself one of these days.

Anyway, I posted on her status in a casual manner telling her how I was disappointed in her for selling defective, scammy products. All she wrote was, "You know you wanna buy one, they're super sexy! :P" So when another friend of hers asked if they actually work, wells, I had to write back. I let him know that I felt that it was all a placebo effect. Also, since I knew about the result of a failed audience experiment in
I completely understand that she has to earn money. But, selling scammy stuff makes me mad. We all noticed that athletes have been endorsing the product, but that doesn't mean crap. Really. I don't understand why we are so willing to believe public figures so easily. It kind of disgusts me how society is. I'm not trying to judge people, no matter what I am writing. I, too, am guilty of believing things too easily. I am too gullible. But, when I find the truth, I strive to let people know that what they believed was false.
Anyway, it makes me reconsider our friendship. I guess I do choose to keep my friends based on what they do and morals. I really like her, but I don't want to associate myself with a person willing to trick others for their benefit. I guess this makes me a bad person. She's just trying to earn money. She is probably going through a financial situation. I have no right to judge her, but I am. Anyhow, I wonder how she's feeling about me. Angry, maybe. I probably lost a bit of her business on facebook since she has like 500+ friends. Maybe she might reconsider our friendship because I'm willing to stand up to her. Maybe she won't even care. She is pretty cool like that. Though, if I were in her shoes, I think I would be hesitant around me.
Ending this post, I am sure we will continue being friends. Just, I have to stop intervening with her business. :/
