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!

On my way to work, I saw a sign.


Okay, in reality, there was no extreme wipeout (this time), but there was a stumble, and LOTS of people in Washington DC that got to see me trip into an inanimate object while searching for phantom workers above.

It reminded me immediately about the Aesop Fable about the Astrologer.

To summarize, a famed Astrologer in a town had always boasted of his ability to see the future in the stars. One night, while stargazing, he failed to see a gigantic pit before him, and he tumbled in.

When the town’s folk came to rescue him, one of his rescuers asked him, “What use is it to read the stars, when you can’t see what’s right here on the earth?!”

Aesop’s moral ultimately stated:

Take care of the little things and the big things will take care of themselves.”

Right now, I’m working on a large scale project…for the first few days, I passionately, albeit foolishly, tried to tackle the big parts of the project before handling the little ones.

After today’s little tumble, I realized that I was shown a sign, both literally and figuratively, to slow down, and to tackle the smaller projects at hand first.

I hope this wasn’t just a sign for myself, but helped you all as well with whatever you are doing~

…Made these girls cry.

Oh man, the last movie was so good~ All the hype aside, I was genuinely impressed by the last Harry Potter Movie and felt a sort of bittersweet closure to a chapter of my childhood. Good times, Harry. Good times.

Yes, it’s true, Faith and I did hold hands for the entire 2.5 hours!

Whether it was reading the books during middle and high school, watching the movies during high school and college, and even going to Harry Potter Land in Orlando last weekend, I was able to enjoy my time at Hogwarts for almost half of my life. And now it’s time to finally move on.

This summer, I read through the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, re-read the Chronicles of Narnia, and finished the Hunger Games trilogy. I am having a hankering for a new great series, and hopefully, someone will come up with one soon. In the meantime, I’ll probably re-read the Lord of the Rings again. (SO GOOD!)

If any of you have any recommendations, please throw them my way, pronto!
