75/365 dark chocolate with raspberries on Flickr.
march 16, 2013
sooooo delicious. i thought i would always prefer milk chocolate over dark but its been a while since i’ve regularly eaten sweet things so this tasted amazing. the richness and sometimes bitterness of chocolate goes so well with the tartness of berries. last week at rick’s cafe, my friend got a cone with two scoops each of chocolate and sorbet, whereas i got a mix of chocolate, strawberry, mint chocolate chip, and cookies and cream. what a cacophony in comparison to her well complimented flavors. regardless, it tasted good because ice cream tastes good. but i should improve my palate and put more thought into food…
also finished my japanese final this morning. i hadn’t actively used or practiced japanese in a while because of busywork and tests from accounting and informatics so it was difficult to accustom myself to read the long passages on the exam.. but i did and i hope i did well lol i skipped some class earlier so my grade probably dropped and i need to get it back up. adsjfkl

quick photo of the day~ had to memorize lots of kanji for the japanese final the next day and these were some of them. haru, natsu, aki, fuyu. pretty basic, but my favorite japanese words are those related to seasons and weather and nature :D their sounds are especially euphonious imo

i really like ode. the huge mac desktops are great. a large display helps with photo and video editing as well as overall productivity. i love studying late at night with friends here in the study rooms too. very enriching both academically and personally. so much can be learned from just the conversations during studying. stayed until 4am this time lol…

i was looking through these photographs of places in japan where the tsunami hit in 2011 compared to what the places look like now in 2013 (www.theatlantic.com/infocus/2013/03/japan-earthquake-2-ye…). what an amazing recovery, what a tough chore, what a hardworking nation of people. thought i should be more hardworking; i’ve been slacking quite a bit these days and not being as responsible as i should. feels guilty when i see others work hard towards accomplishments and i’m not doing the same. started off small by taking care of neglected responsibilities today like finally going to my accounting lecture and taking a pic because i’ve always liked this room (it was probably the 5th time going this quarter lolol), finishing jsa tasks in time for the meeting, finally started preparing for the writing skills assessment by going to the workshop. but its been a good couple weeks academically; i hope i can win at my finals too lol pretty excited about them. tests are really fun to prepare for sometimes

a shot from a photoset project i’m working on for an upcoming event for jsa. this day was so nice. the sun brings out so much prettiness in things like when it’s shining at the perfect angle to light up the buildings at school before it sets. its been sunny and clear this past week and i’ve been quite happy. that’s usually how it is but when there’s nothing planned or no one to see for a relatively long amount of time, i get stressed about tasks to complete, anxious about what to do for the day, angry about whatever situation is a pain at the time, but overall lonely. people are busy though, and so am i, so the alone time is necessary to be productive; however it’s emotionally tiring to be alone for more than a day. it’s also quite taxing to be surrounded by people for days in a row, for weeks, and for so often that alone time becomes scarce and a thing to relish, but the stimulation, laughs, and bonding is worthwhile and necessary, so it’s preferable to the opposite situation.
unfortunately it’s currently that opposite situation because finals are only days away. although we all get together at the end of every week, it slips by quickly, whereas the time spent alone being productive and studying accumulates throughout the week, creates a rather dead kind of mood that i’m forced to adopt as my default because of the aggregate stress and lack of interaction.
oh well, spring break is soon and i’m going to hawaii with some of the most fun people ever :D it’ll be a pain getting through the days until then, but i plan to reconnect with some people to achieve my optimal balance of people and productivity. goal for the week~
yes i’ll think of something to represent the 3/11 earthquake from 2 years ago. goal for tomorrow (today).
i thought i would become more motivated and inspired with photography with this new year but i’m not. maybe i’ll feel creative when summer comes and i’ll have time on my hands. i don’t know what i’m doing with photography right now. it feels like i’m using the same kind of formula with composition and editing again and again. lol
rain on Flickr.
i was bored and the street was wet outside and looked cool underneath the streetlight so i went to take a picture. it’s starting to rain here :( today was the second day of rain. it’s getting cold too. today my right hand froze while using my mouse qq firstworldproblems. i finished a lot of my homework today. i think this was my most productive weekend in a while. my breakfast, lunch, and dinner were delicious too. today was a nice day inside i guess. it feels weird to stay at home so long though. on the weekdays, i stay on campus for a long time before going home. i guess i like school. i’m having fun there. but not the classes part.

part of my favorite building on campus. these buildings have so much character. lots of interesting architecture. these first two weeks in college make high school seem so boring :D i guess i should settle down a little and focus on my classes asdfkljds
