On Film: Japantown









Japantown is not an area that I'll visit often, I've only been there three or four times since I've moved here. We went there for some ramen and kick-ass boba tea that has cotton candy on top (I need some more of that goodness) We walked around and sit and talked until it's late enough for us to decide it's time to head back to our apartment and talk some more.

It's a great way to end the semester, spending time with my friends. People who I can have great conversations with, from the most random thoughts, to the news - anything, really. Couldn't have asked for a better way to end to a busy semester like this one.

And no it's not the end yet, the next day, we went to the Mission! Photos will be up soon! 'Til next time xx

On Film: Home






I've finally finished another roll of film! This is technically my third roll, but there was a little mishap with my second roll (read: I ripped it when I tried to rewind it. Never forget about the rewind button, ever.) But anyways, this is the first post out of three.

As you know, not too long ago, I moved into a new apartment with my friend. I haven't finished decorating my personal space just yet, the basic area is done (bed and table area). The wall area is still empty other than a mirror I got from a thrift store. But I'm very excited to share more of my space in the future!

These are some of the random pictures I took around the apartment with my film camera; a cup of coffee, my roommate and our friend, fire escape, the orchid that our landlord gave us as a housewarming gift, and my hat.

The next one is coming very soon!

Much Needed Break

I took a much needed break from the finals the yesterday. My friends and I went to see City Ballet Spring Showcase featuring Act II of Giselle, it was beautiful! It was located at The Palace of Fine Arts which is one of my favorite places in San Francisco, there are so many pillars and the dome is just gorgeous.

I'm pretty sure you know by now that I rarely wear heels and I don't dress up very often. I saw the chance and I went for it and I'm glad I did. Walking around in heels is not very ideal but I survived with zero blisters. Okay, now back to the finals! One week left!

On The Desk


This wooden hand is one of my favorite things on my desk. I've wanted to buy one for so long and finally, I got one from amazon for my final project. This hand is pretty small, but it does an amazing job at keeping some of my favorite rings in place and it makes a really nice decoration.

Another thing that I love is the marble cheese platter that I got from a thrift store. I just can't say no when I saw it, I carried the heavy cheese platter around the city all day, but it was definitely worth it.

Blank Space


This is one of a few reasons that I haven't been around. My lease is finally up at the current place and and after a long process of apartment hunting and all that jazz, my friend and I finally found a great studio apartment to share. I can't describe how excited I am, a big weight on my shoulder has been lifted, now I can just focus on my finals.

I already have the bulk of things there and we took a not so little trip to IKEA the other day to get our most of our furniture and holy cow, it was exhausting. The next phase is wait for the items to come in and building them.

I can't wait to share my workspace with you!
