Ahhh, here's a random post of the week for you. First of all, Happy Valentine's Day! What are you up to? Spending the day with special someone? Or like me, doing my homework and sipping tea, enjoying the "calm" week (not too many assignments this week, hurrah!) Secondly, bad news, I lost my camera remote. I've been searching all over my room but I still can't find it, it's so frustrating. And it's also the reason I haven't post any OOTD's, I'll try to do a major room clean up again and hopefully I can find it this time. I'm sure some of you know how important that little remote is when it comes to taking pictures *sigh. Okay, that's enough, let's go straight to what the post is about.
I brew a cup of coffee last week and the smell instantly reminded me of home. After not seeing my family for almost a whole year and then only to see them just for a short month, I have to say, it was not enough. When I got back to San Francisco, I suddenly felt really lonely, it was just too quiet and I got bored really quickly. It was the little things that got me the most; the sound of my dad watching TV at night at the living room while I try to sleep in the bedroom my sister and I share, or simply having great company around to talk to. Studying abroad can suck sometimes. Because I felt particularly homesick that day, I decided to do something that reminded me of home: brewing a cup of coffee. Which does help (it's a little bit embarrassing to say that, it's not even a whole month yet); the smell calms me down and on the plus side, it tasted amazing – even though I became incredibly alert and hyper for the next few hours.
So again, happy Valentin's Day, tell someone you love them and grateful for them. And don't just on Valentine's day, everyday is a good day to appreciate one another.
Have a wonderful day!
