13/15: Give Your Reasons

Here's my next 15 to 15 look. I kept it really casual and this is usually what I look like when I'm walking from class to class. Simple. Clean. I don't really feel like writing much today since I'm feeling a bit blue but check back soon for my next look.

12/15: Shoot Down the Stars

This is one of my favorite 15 for 15 looks so far (mainly because I of these tights - I haven't worn them in way too long). I remember people always telling me when I first started blogging that white tights were super hard to pull off. These white tights definitely make it easier though since they're so sheer and also have a simple floral pattern on them. Makes me feel like there's a mini-snow storm on my legs (and we definitely could use a lot more snow this winter in my opinion).

My roommate Monisha took these photos and it also just happens to be her 22nd birthday today! We're going out to dinner later to celebrate and we're probably going down to Atlantic City for the night. I'm going to be exhausted tomorrow morning but it'll all be worth it. Now I just have to make sure I get all my work done this afternoon. I'm definitely loading way too much on my plate right now but I can't stop! I definitely think I strive on stress to some extent - my mom keeps reminding me to slow down. But since I have about 30 minutes to breathe right now I'm going to make some Ramen and do nothing until it's time to run out the door again. :)

11/15: Girl Worth Fighting For

Lately I've been stressed out beyond belief with all the non-stop work I've been having to do with classes, Circle K, and my job. Either something's going wrong because of a million curve balls being thrown my way or I run out of time to get everything done in a timely manner. Sometimes I let it overwhelm me and it just knocked me out today so I skipped my evening class to sleep and do absolutely nothing before insanity took over. There's nothing better than sitting around doing nothing with my roommates. We're currently watching Mulan and obnoxiously sitting along to every single song. I'm pretty sure we all know the entire movie by heart.

I should be going to bed now because I have to get up early tomorrow. Too bad I'm wide awake because I took a power nap before. I thought it'd be a good idea to nap because I had a meeting an hour away but then it got cancelled and now I'm up late watching Mulan. Living the life - obviously. :P I keep on having midnight snacks too! Actually, I guess now it would qualify as a 2 AM snack. Late night snacks are both amazing and dangerous. Isn't it true that you shouldn't really eat before going to bed? Whoops! Guess bad habits stay around for a while. I'm not gonna out grow this habit for a loooong time.

10/15: We Have Left Nothing to Chance

I just realized I'm the slowest person ever when it comes to doing these 15 for 15 looks. I guess I've gotten to the point where I'm too busy to post everyday so it ends up taking me a month to post all the looks. My days have been pretty crazy lately (in a good way) and I never seem to be sleeping anymore. Good thing I'm spending today just bumming around, watching movies, and doing some busy work. There's no other way I would want to spend my lazy Sunday.

I'm feeling a little bit homesick right now since it's Chinese New Year. My Facebook news feed is being flooded by pictures of enormous home-cooked meals celebrating the new year. My family and I don't really make a big deal out of celebrations like this so I didn't go home at all. Maybe I'll celebrate tomorrow by setting off some fireworks I bought over the summer when I went down to Virginia. Then maybe I'll make some fried rice and dumplings for dinner. Gonna go all out Asian tomorrow. :)

9/15: Tale As Old As Time

It's Thursday, which means it's the last day of classes for the week (at least for me)! It's only been three days since we've officially been back at school and I'm already exhausted. I have a knack for nodding off during my classes due to short attention span and need for interactive learning. Just sitting there and listening to someone lecture doesn't really help much in my opinion. I'm glad my professors that I've already met so far at least seem pretty chill. I have my last class of the week in a few minutes - it's called Wine Insights which seems really interesting. Maybe I'll finally develop a taste for wine.

My roommates and I went to go see Beauty and the Beast last night because who doesn't love getting to watch your childhood movies in theaters?? I hate how expensive the movies have gotten and I always know when I go I'm going to start craving some popcorn. Even when I resist, once I hear all of the munching in the theater I start drooling. The movie was amazing (just like I expected) and the 3D was beautifully done. The only bad part about watching it in theaters was that I wasn't able to obnoxiously sing along to every song without getting yelled at. :P

Our last day in Chicago was more relaxing and we wandered around one of the biggest malls in the area. After wasting some time creating our own happy hour at one in the afternoon, we decided to go see Devil Inside. It was definitely scary beyond belief but overall it wasn't really worth seeing. Oh, and the reason I'm carrying my glasses in these photos is because I accidentally dropped one of my contacts while taking them out before going to bed the night before. I look ridiculously dorky in my glasses so I refused to wear them in my pictures. :P

Today was my last first day of the semester. One of my classes was cancelled and one of my classes only ran for 30 minutes since the professor only went over the syllabus so it was a good ease into the beginning of classes. I need to start buying my textbooks - I always end up putting it off until my exams start. Good luck to everyone else just starting their classes!

Jeremy and I took a trip into the city about a week ago for some delicious dim sum and one of my friend's brother's comedy acts. Unfortunately I was a bit of an idiot and forgot to charge my camera battery. Before Jeremy could even get ten pictures in...the battery died. Therefore, I didn't get shots of my outfit underneath my coat. Style Blogger Problems. You can sort of see the gingham patterned shirt peeking out from underneath my coat so I figured I'd post them anyway. Whoops! Lesson learned.

Winter break is coming to an end and I'm moving back into my on-campus apartment this afternoon. I'm excited to start this spring semester (fresh starts are always nice) but at the same time I keep remembering that this is my last semester in college. These past four years really did fly by and I wish I could hold on to them forever. Everyone keeps telling me that you'll never have the same experience in life afterward so I guess I better enjoy these next few months to the fullest! :)

Chicago In A Bean

I finally got done sorting through my Chicago pictures! I sort of took a break from my 15 for 15 during this trip since most of my 15 items were in the wash and I was in too much of a hurry to pack and catch my flight. Plus, I was expecting super cold weather in Chicago so I needed a warmer sweater.

One of my favorite parts about visiting Chicago (aside from the food of course) is the Bean (which is casualy sitting behind me in these pictures). It looks kind of awkward just randomly stationed in the middle of Chicago but you can see the entire city in it's reflection. Amazing, right? My friends and I "flicked" the Bean before leaving to hunt for some food. I feel like the majority of my trip to Illinois consisted of eating, eating, and more eating. Thank god for friends who share my love for delicious food.

My friend Donnesh took all of my photos here and he's quite the dresser himself, so I switched to standing behind the camera and snapped some quick shots of him. I'm in love with his little bow tie - kind of makes me want to invest in one myself (but I know I'd just look plain silly with one around my neck). Both his chambray shirt and his bow tie are from American Apparel. The last pictures is of Donnesh, myself, and Eric - these boys are two of my favorite people in the world and it was painful saying goodbye. Donnesh is visiting me all the way from Texas in mid-February so I'm pretty excited about that. If only I had enough money to travel the world!
