So far ahead

Hello hello! I've been MIA because 1) I've  been in Australia for two weeks and 2) my last year of law school began and I've been pretty much swamped since. I'll do my best to update from time to time, even if the posts won't be very substantial. Until then, enjoy some Frank Ocean.



Really good, right? I've been playing this video non-stop!

Have a lovely weekend!

Nervous


I don't know why, but I always find it really difficult to sleep the night before I go on any trip. I feel even more anxious if it's the night before I have to get on a plane. I can't seem to turn off my brain from constantly thinking "Am I forgetting something?" over and over.

Ugh, I have GOT to sleep.

Neigh-sayers


My sister took this picture of me with an app on her iPad. She found it a lot more hilarious than I did, but it's still pretty funny =)

Seafood Sunday


Today my aunt put together a small seafood feast before Thao and I leave for Australia on Tuesday. We had clams, mussels and fish, but the lobster was my faaavorite.

I can't believe I will be off to Australia in less 3 days. Ahhh!

Hallelujah


Remember this performance during the Hope for Haiti benefit back in 2010? I was thinking about how much I loved it the other day. I know "Hallelujah" has been covered by everyone and their moms, but I think JT and Matt Morris's somber rendition was just so good. Enjoy.

Dinner at Max's tonight


Whenever I eat dinner at Max's we never really whip up anything fancy, but the food's always tasty and the mood's always relaxing. And, tonight will be my last dinner by Max before I head to Australia for two weeks, so I'm really looking forward to eating on his patio and maybe watching a quick summer storm.

Hnm...


Idea for killing time on a 15-hour flight: Doodling and coloring. I bought two Taro Gomi coloring books a while back (I've been going through a quarter-life crisis for some time now) and they're really fun to do when I'm either procrastinating from school work or when I have nothing else to do. I think I may bring it on my trip.
NOTE: In the picture above, the book instructs us to make the robots fight. Jackie's doodlings are on the left and mine are on the right. I think mine won, haha.

Flying is scary.


In a week, I am off to Australia with my sister and ultimate travel-buddy (ultimate buddy in everything, really). I'm very excited, but I'm also very nervous about the 15-hour flight. I'm feeling a little apprehensive because I get nervous on flights, and staying in the air for 15 hours is  probably going to make me want to kill myself. I guess I'll have a week to figure out a bunch of different ways to entertain myself when I'm not asleep on the plane... Wish me luck.

I like my diamonds like I like my men...


Black diamond studs. Simple and sexy. Gimme.


It runs in the family.


My Dad, back in the day, keepin' it real.
