When I have a lot of things on my mind, I have a habit of talking in my sleep.
And since the past few weeks have been filled with all sorts of things, my nights have subsequently been filled with tons of talk.
A co-worker of mine let me know about a fun little app called “Sleep Talk Recorder,” which (like the name says), records your sleep talking. I set it to record one night, and this is what happened:
I don’t even remember what the context of that phrase was in my dreams!
Hear it for yourself below:
What do YOU think I was dreaming about?
Another month, another exam to study for!
Which is fine and dandy for most people…except I’m not like most people.
Despite the whole Asian student stereotype, I am terrible at studying due to a combination of procrastination, being incredibly busy, and having an overly distracted personality.
My sister was watching me “study” one day and she told me that I reminded her of a particular Spongebob episode. This is what she saw, and I can’t say I blame her for making the comparison:
And my next exam is this upcoming Saturday! Oh nooo!!!
In all seriousness, I have actually been studying very hard for this exam. While I do have my Spongebob moments, I think that this upcoming exam will end in success~ I’ll keep you posted, my lovely readers!
Pop Quiz, Hot-shot.
I was watching one of my favorite British Youtubers the other day, and he did a psychology test that I found fascinating.
Clear your mind and follow along.
Ready to find out what your imagination says about you? Read on!
The Cube: This is how you view yourself and your surroundings.
I suppose this means that I see myself as a shiny, but fragile object: easy to see through, but also reflective and equips others to see themselves better, too.
The Ladder: This represents your friends.
The wooden ladder is standing strong on its own, which many of my friends do, and have the potential to bring me to a higher level that I couldn’t get to by myself.
The Horse: This symbolizes how you visualize your love interest/an important relationship that you are in.
I imagine my future mate to be someone that is “wild” and exotic, knowledgeable of the world and street-smart. But as it was calm, saddled and tamed, he has been refined and educated, and is ready to carry me out of the desert.
The Storm: This stands for the trouble in your life and how you view it.
The sandstorm I saw was caused by my surroundings, and not by nature (like a thunderstorm). I see that many of my problems aren’t caused by circumstance or any one person, but by the surroundings I put myself into. Fortunately, it was off in the distance and in the opposite direction of my horse, which hopefully alludes to how my relationship and my troubles won’t be linked.
The Flowers: These represent your children, how many you want, and show what kind of people you want them to be.
The several roses I saw were healthy and vibrant, even though they were lying on the desert floor. I see my children as standing out in their surroundings, being pruned, elegant, refined, and in full bloom no matter where they are.
Sooo…what did YOU see?
Happy Independance Day, my lovely readers! America! WHOO!
This past week has been incredibly eventful. It all started last Friday, when 3 million people (including the Whang Gang) lost all power.
And boy, was it sudden!
That weekend, our family pow-wowed in the basement to keep cool in the 100+ degree weather until (thank God!) we regained power Sunday early afternoon.
I was suddenly reminded of the blackout in Haiti, and I couldn’t help but feel immense gratitude and thankfulness for the situation that our family was blessed to be in, despite the lack of power.
The fact that we have a basement that keeps cool without air conditioning, and clean, running water that allowed us to drink, cook, clean, and wash up…I was re-humbled and re-invigorated for my next trip to Haiti this October.
After the hullaballoo of settling back into our re-powered house, we got ready for the 4th of July!
Our family celebrated by participating in a sponsored event at the Columbia Sheraton Hotel, where we had a beautiful front-row seat to the fireworks show.
The show was beautiful and the night was perfect. And I FINALLY got to try out that “Fireworks” setting on my Canon S90 camera. (See the gallery below for the photos I took that night…the setting is not bad!)
This weekend, the Whang ladies are heading out to Pennsylvania for a girl’s night on the town!
Look forward to it! Mwah!
