Summertime Sadness '13
Sadly, summer has come to an end for me as I have started my fall semester. The most difficult thing about going back to school is having to change my whole entire sleep schedule. Overall, I really like my classes this semester and hope to excel in all of them. Aiming for that 4.0! This summer was all about summer school (I took 3 courses) and my first job, along with some fun adventures. I was able to go on a mini vacation to New York with my family and it was a great first time. The City is so much more fast-paced compared to the LA lifestyle that I'm so used to. One of my favorite memory from my trip was visiting Laudree. A French bakery that offers a variety of delicious macaroons. My favorite flavors are Orange Blossom and Rose. It was a bit nostalgic for me and reminded me of my time in Paris last winter. I love the store's interior and every little detail of the place reminds me of Paris or some romantic European city. The store, which is located in the Upper East Side, also reminded me of Gossip Girl (one of my all time fave TV series). Besides New York, I was also able to visit some of the surrounding states around the East Coast and the Niagara Falls. It was cool to see the waterfall up close and extremely windy riding the ferry. The trip was too short, but hopefully I'll be visiting the Big Apple soon (maybe this winter). And of course, my summer was filled with delicious food adventures~ The only thing I regret is the fact that I DID NOT, I repeat DID NOT, go to the beach all summer. That is just extremely shocking since I live in California. I can't wait to see what adventures I'll be embarking on next summer and if all goes well I know I will be entering a whole new chapter in my life. Until then, I will be working hard so that I am able to pursue my goals and strive towards a bright future.
