2672. Korean Food. Keep calm and eat Korean food!
Being friends with Danny means eating like 500% more Korean food than I used to, haha.
Bahaha GPOY me harassing Josh when he accidentally falls asleep.
Beef skewer and Korean spicy grilled squid at Shanghai Strawberry Festival! I thought it was really cool to see the kinds of bands (and foods!) at a Chinese music festival, definitely a departure from hipster indie music and tacos!
Sunday: bottomless margaritas and brunch at Cantina Agave, drinks at Dr. Beer, happy hour at Shanghai Brewery and then dinner with Leo and Nick
oh gee I wonder how we got so drunk hmm
Monday: woke up STILL DRUNK, worked until 6-ish, then raced home to pack and catch a train to Nanjing at 9p, got in close to 11p, beer pong until 4a at Thom’s
Tuesday: late lunch at Blue Sky, explored Xuanwu Lake and the park around it, dinner and pub quiz at Jimmy’s, went to bed around 2a
Wednesday: got up at 9a for a nonexistent Skype meeting, caught a train back to Shanghai at noon
hahaha Shanghai Noon omg shut up Alex, went to the Shanghai Strawberry Music Festival, had dinner at the Cool Docks (tried a place called Top Choice?), went home and passed the fuck out around 11p
Thursday (today): WHY AM I BACK AT WORK I CAN’T FOCUS ON ANYTHING BWAHHHH okay I guess I’ll just upload all the pictures from my phone and surf Tumblr and oh goddammit I have a meeting in twelve minutes
This is what my ENTIRE GODDAMN INBOX looks like. My phone AND Macbook have both been blowing up for the last hour, and I have like thirty gazillion invitations on my calendar now. One complete list compiled as a single document couldn’t have sufficed?!
What is the most comforting place, smell, and sound to you?
Place, probably cuddled up to Josh in bed. Smell, probably also Josh (when he’s been wearing cologne, or at least deodorant, haha). Sound? My best friends’ laughs. Or steady rain, when I’m warm indoors.
Are you wearing a bracelet?
Two silver bracelets, a beaded one with a snake charm that says 福, another bangle that has a Sanskrit mantra on it.
Have you ever been in love? If yes, how many times, and how do you know it was love?
Yes, twice. Maybe two and a half times, haha. I don’t know, maybe it’s cheesy, but I guess when you know, you know.
What is the longest relationship you’ve ever been in, and why did it end?
I’m still in it. Depending on how you want to count it, we’re either at just over two years or going on four, haha.
What were your ambitions as a child and what are your ambitions now?
To become a pediatrician, to get married around 26, and to have kids around 28 (yeah, I knew nothing about “residency” or “fellowships”); now, to get my masters, to live abroad for a significant amount of time (going on six months in Shanghai!), and still to eventually get married. I’m not so sure about kids anymore.
I guess I never posted this, but I got a job! I’m a Senior Consultant at a company called New Pathway, and I basically do college coaching for high school kids. Wheee!
Oh god been having a totally stress-tastic couple
days weeks full of cover letters and CVs and job applications and interviews and writing assignments and lesson planning and article researching and powerpoint making and syllabus writing and I just saw this and LOST IT. I don’t know it if constitutes animal cruelty but I sincerely hope not because it is just so silly and endearing and LOOK AT ITS LIL CHEEKS AND LIL TONGUE.
Steak, bacon-wrapped shrimp and scallops with jalapeños, and garlic mashed potatoes with jalapeño jack and bacon — ahhhmazing! #lastsupper #Texasstyle
