It’s been a while since the last time we were in the city (San Francisco) so my friends and I decided to go on a city adventure last Tuesday. ^_^ We went to Fisherman’s Wharf and enjoyed some ice cream and floats from Ghirardelli Square. While on our way there, we met these three cute elderly ladies who were also on a surprise adventure. 🙂 I think meeting them was the highlight of the day because talking to them, my friends and I believe they are our elderly counterparts hehe. ^_^ One lady was so cute that she wanted to take a picture with us but the train came and the other lady couldn’t wait so she passed by while taking the photo. 😛

When dealing with so much work for my financial accounting class, there are times where I get burnt out. x.x I’m the type of person that tries to get things done in the morning so I can rest in the afternoon or night but sometimes I need to space my assignments out. Today, I wanted to work on my homework after lunch but I just couldn’t. I woke up early to cook breakfast for my family then cleaned the house the whole morning so I guess I got exhausted from that. When I had my studying set-up, I tried working on my hw but nothing was going through my head. x.x Even though I don’t want to, I’ve been taking naps more often but after I feel better. Brewed some kona coffee that I found and when I study, I listen to the Coffee Table Jazz playlist on Spotify to get into my studying groove; that’s my way of getting the feeling of being in Starbucks at home hehe. ^_^ Also, just wanted to share this one photo I took at Target =) I thought these canvas posters were cute. My favorites: “Dear coffee, I love you. That is all.” and “Talk nerdy to me”. 😉

Since I have a few pieces around the house, sometimes I look at one and think that I should upgrade them. This is one of my very first pieces. I bought this cup at Daiso (an Asian dollar store) and when my mom saw what I made, she wanted to keep it in her room. I still can’t believe that this photo was from 2011 when I first started making floral origami. The second photo is the updated version of the original. A couple origami books, one very interesting floral art book, practice, and three years later, I’m very happy with how my crafting has grown. ^_^

Even though I’ve been loaded with assignments from my financial accounting class, I’m very thankful for having great friends in school and my life-long friends. ❤ My life as a student is that if I'm not studying at home, then you will mostly likely find me at Starbucks studying. 😛 My favorite kinds of days are what my friends and I call it "Starbucks Days" where we plan time during the week to meet up and work on anything that we want. I was working on my homework while one of my girls was working on her resume, and another two of my girls were knitting together, so cute! Usually I get overwhelmed by daily routine of just studying when I get home but having Starbucks Days, it helps me power through my assignments and refreshes me since I get to catch up with my girls. ^-^ I also had time to catch up with one of my guy friends which I'm thankful for too. 🙂 And I had time to finally finish my origami project! 😀 One of my friends' roommate was very sweet and gave me a glass vase so I made a flower narcissus set for it. For being a busy busy lady, my happiness comes from the smallest things like working with great people at school, spending time with friends, and even having a craft project. Where does your happiness come from? What are the little things that are making you happy this week? 🙂
