WTA#40 | One

Saturday, November 26, 2011

I have been very busy lately, the days just seem to speed right in front of my eyes. It starts and it ends and in the in betweens, I am mostly too tired, or too sad, or a little of both to really have time to dwell on it. I just wish it gets faster so I can go home already.

Le sigh.

WTA#39 | Yellow

Monday, November 21, 2011

I've actually taken this picture for the purpose of WTA but an Anon in Tumblr asked for a picture of my favorite spot in my room sooooo I posted this (forgot to post it here after, sarreh). This seems familiar because I already uploaded a couple from this spot before, heh. It's my favorite because not only is the light alright (the only window in my room is beside it), but it houses my books, my snitch, my Beatles alarm clock that I rarely use, and my new roommate - a goldfish named Jack that you'll meet soon. I'm rambling.

Anyway, welcome Nova, and Carlo who has just recently joined WTA. :) I've been gushing to Phillip how this project has grown and how it's exciting it has been to have these guys do this with us. I couldn't ask for better classmates. :)

Live in another country for more than a year

Friday, November 11, 2011

I have been staying in Saudi Arabia for a little more than two years and a half now. While I'm almost used to eating no pork, no alcohol consumption, and no Christmas season, I can't say the same about missing everyone at home.

My boyfriend and I bought a pug. He was born on July but was released to us around the first week of September. He's now almost 4 times heavier than his weight when he arrived. Look at that sexy face.

See him and his band play

Eat Spaghetti in Italy

The funny thing (or not so funny thing) about hotel food is that they cost a lot more but doesn't taste just as good. The best Spaghetti I've had in Italy however came 2 months after, in another region, from a little restaurant in the mall.

54 things to do before turning 45
