Formal Wear

“Dress up!”

formal

With my interview and proposal hearing this past week ..

I’ve been dressing very formal this week :p

The nice thing about being a girl is that you can always dress up for literally ANY occasion!

Formal wear, however, doesn’t come very often

But when a lady does dress up formally .. she looks just as professional as her outfit 😉

I can finally say I am DONE (for now) with all the gibberish formal stuff ..

I’m so excited I feel I can live for 100 years lol!

When an opportunity is waving in your face, grab it and hold onto it tightly and never let it slip away

Dress up not only with decent clothing, but also with full confidence and a smile 🙂

Once you’ve had you chance to shine and show yourself .. then let it slip out of your grasp!

No matter what you wear, it is never complete and perfect without your smile and confidence 🙂

Overworking Yourself?

“A good night’s rest is deserved after long hours of working.”

tired sleeping

Literally dropped dead after spending four days working on my thesis …

Books and papers are still lying everywhere .. but I don’t care ..

I’ll even sleep next to them 😛

I think what we’re very good at is procrastinating and leaving things till the last minute ..

Sometimes we find that we’re even more efficient and work better under pressure! :/

Whether that’s the case with you or not .. it’s not good (shakes head)

Even if you keep a regular schedule ..

The exhaustion after all the overworking is like someone smacking your head against the wall continuously

Or feeling like you haven’t been talking to people for years when it’s only been 4 days lol

Nevertheless, it’s always good to take time to energize yourself 🙂

Take a good night’s rest ..

Eat your favourite food ..

Exercise or hang out with some friends ..

SCREAM if you have to lol ..

Try not to overwork yourself 🙂

Happy Easter Weekend!!

A friend that’s hard to make (sigh)

friends with thesis

I like to meet new people 🙂

Making friends have never really been a big problem for me ..

But making friends with your thesis is a damn pain in the ass!

Running out of time! (tick tock tick tock)

First Day of the Week

“There is a need to procrastinate on Mondays.”

playing with cellphone

Monday always seems so long and tiring ..

But once you’ve made it past the first day of the week, you know you’ll make it past the rest of the week ! lol

So, don’t feel bad if you’re procrastinating .. I mean C‘mon! It’s Monday!


The game I’m so addicted to now is called LINE RANGERS.

It’s a game from LINE (the messenger) which is basically the messenger people use in Taiwan.

You basically have your own rangers and you pass levels so you can save Sally (the duck that’s being captured) when you get to level 192.

One particular reason to why I love this game so much is because the rangers are so cute and some of them have such funny expressions! The bad guys are terribly ugly but they also the type of funny expressions I like. I get pretty excited when I see new characters and basically study them all because they’re so funny and interesting!

So, if you’re looking for a new game, maybe you can try this one 🙂

Bath it out!

“Rough day? Hang in there! It’s almost Friday!!!”

bath boy

When your guy friend tells you he’s going to take a nice, long bath and read a good book ..

I crack myself LOL wish I could be that keen on reading absolutely anything ..

ahh~I miss the two bath tubs back at home ..

Bath tubs aren’t very popular in Taiwan because of the limited spaces in homes ..

Ever wonder why you all of a sudden start missing everything and you just want it all to end as fast as a blink of an eye?

Hmmm .. it’s probably just the pressure .. oh well .. how do I cheer myself up? 😀

I say: “Cindy .. It’ll pass once it’s over! Hang in there!”

One more day and eeeeeeeeeeeeeetzzz …

FRIDAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whoop Dee Doo!

Good bye happy weekend!

“From a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your weekend?”

rate1

Feeling a little sad because the weekend is over?

Think about the happy/rested/crazy/fun/hilarious moments from the weekend ..

A smile, or maybe even a laugh, will naturally appear on your face 🙂

And when it appears, keep it there ..

let it face Monday with you 🙂

New week, new challenges! Good luck!!

Remember to go for any opportunity you get!

Artist’s Block

“Artist’s block? Just give it time to melt!”

artistsblock1

When you’ve wrecked your brain for every little incy wincy piece of creativity and you find nothing but a solid block ..

And no matter what you use to draw .. may it be a pen, pencil, crayon, marker, highlighter, whatever you can find! ..

The block is an ice block ..

You simply can’t make even a single dot on it ..

Yup .. That’s me! I’ve reached artist’s block (sigh)

It’s been a while since I’ve drawn something that I’m actually satisfied with ..

To my surprise, the artist’s block image gave me ideas, inspiration 🙂

So let it melt fellow artists!

Just a little more time 🙂

Where is my umbrella?

“What happened to my dearest umbrella?”

After a nice filling dinner and a wonderful chat with friends, I walked out into the rain,

kneeling down to get my umbrella by the door.

To my surprise, it was gone! 😦

What do you think happened to it?

Picture to words .. Tell my story!

Back in February, I was probably the most happiest chap ever lol

There were so many holidays .. Chinese New Year and then 228 (Peace Memorial Day) ..

And then when I realized the holiday was over and I did no work at all !

I felt pretty screwed …

And now it’s March already ..

This is me when I think about the unfinished first 3 chapters of my thesis that needs to be at least 50 pages ..

I literally just want to lie on the floor and have the ability to write 50 pages by just thinking of it in my head ..

And then when I think of everything else I want to finish within this month ..

I just end up rolling back and forth on the floor lol

National Lantern Day in Taiwan

“And at last I see the light
And it’s like the fog has lifted
And at last I see the light
And it’s like the sky is new
And it’s warm and real and bright
And the world has somehow shifted
All at once everything looks different
Now that I see you.”

-Rapunzel

lantern

Every year on Taiwan’s National Lantern Day a big event will be held at Pingxi Junior High School where they light up 200 lanterns at once.

Even though it’s a yearly event, it is always packed with people.

People write their wishes on the lantern, light it up and let it float into the sky, hoping that their wishes will come true.

It’s my first time at this event, and, to be honest, it is a very beautiful sight.

Although I wouldn’t do it again lol because there were so many people at the event that it took me 3 hours to get home.

What a mission!

Now I know how Rapunzel feels about seeing the floating lights 😉
