Finals week *Fighting~Fighting*


I was just done with one of my finals. It was the one for my cooking class. It was pretty sad that I had to say goodbye to my fellow classmates~ I'm sure we'll see each other again. hehehe. Anyway, I am turning 27 next month... Time runs by so fast.. I need to hurry up and finish school.. I wish I could live the life of a regular student, living on campus, in a dorm, getting to know more people at school and get together to study. However, being where I am now, I can't. I have bills to pay, I have my own place, I have a lot of expenses.. I have to grow up faster than I wished. I have to work so hard maintaining 2 jobs and full time school. On top of that, I have to come up with my own funds towards my education. I used to live with my parents, working only 1 day a week. Everything was provided for me, but after I moved out, I fully learned what being an adult was all about. I know now that my goal is to get my degree asap. I keep getting nagged at "when are you going to be done? You're getting old now and you still have not accomplished anything". Well, my response is that If I had the money to not have to work and take as many classes as possible, I would. I'm not getting any help here, therefore things will have to go at my own pace. It is not a fast one, but I will someday make it as long as I don't give up.

Anyway, I've been doing some studies at the library~ luckily it closes at 2am because it took me a while before I even reached that destination hahaha. I had to cook at home, and wait for my friend to come over and have dinner~ by the time we were done, it was almost 4pm. Then, before going to the library, we decided to go to Seattle's Brewery to get some coffee to wake us up~ and again, we took our precious time.. hahaha.. On the way to UNLV, we started talking about crabs~ King crabs, blue crabs, etc...We ended up saying "Screw it!! Let's go eat some crabs first" hahaha~ We ended up at Crabhouse.
Our tools
1/2 dozen of blue crabs (female) yay!! Eggs are in season!! *yummy*
King crab legs ^_^

Finally after being full, that's when we decided to go to the library and we studied until midnight
3 of us studying together on the 5th floor of the library.

I love UNLV's library.. It's so big.. It looks more like a convention center hahaha Theres even a coffee shop on the first floor.. There's many private study rooms and tons of computer labs. You would easily get lost in there~ Because I have before haha. There are 5 floor, equiped with elevators.
View from the top floor next to our table~ Pretty nice right? ^^

After studying, we decided to meet up with some friends at "Soyo Barstaurant" haha It's a korean place~ Considering the fact that most of my friends here are Koreans, that's where we love to hang out. We had some steamed pork with wraps and spicy oyster. ~ Tasty tasty.
...ZzZzz... End of the night.

Pajama time!! xox.zZzzz....

Oh by the way, I took some snaps of one of my work place~ It was uber slow so I decided to take some shots. I work at a norebang (Korean Karaoke Studio).
Area where people can wait and drink outside of the private karaoke rooms

View from the front desk haha

Rowie @ Work ^^


My LED artwork~ there's a diff one in front of each room~ See how it can flash in diff colors haha. I decided to draw Gominam~ Pig rabbit from "You're beautiful" hehe

here's another one in front of our VIP room

Snow Globe ^_^ In time for the holidays.

Lastly, The LED panel on top of our front counter near the register~
**how do you like my artwork? hehehe*

Sorry it's dark~ -__-

Throughout the whole semester, I've been proof reading and correcting/editing my friend's English paper. He's been having A's all along. I guess being nice really pays off because He treated me to Sushi ^_^ My all time favorite food!! We went to Kaizen because a friend works there and she could provide us unlimited drinks haha

Fresh oysters~ In Love!! We ordered 24 oysters like the pigs we were.

Dragon Roll

Japanese Lasagna

Spicy Tuna on crispy rice

My all time favorite... Ikura with Quail eggs. ~ Ahh just looking at this picture makes me hungry!!

Anyway we ordered a lot more but I didn't get to take a picture of it.
After that, we decided to head out for a night of bowling~ Our other friends told us to meet up at the bowling alley at midnight~ *Isn't it late for a meeting?*
There was 8 of us ^^ we each had 4 people on each team and we all put 5 dollars in the pot. Team with the highest score takes all! it was a close game but~ We won!~ *woohoo! got 5 bucks!*

Kahluah Sour~ Only for $1 I was shocked at their happy hour price
3 Beers~ $2.00 each

Snap of our last game~ I'm the first one "R" hehehe

After that, we decided to go downstairs to have some $3.99 New York Steak and eggs. It is an after hour special.
I like mine medium rare
our sourdough toast~ is it breakfast already? well it was almost 4 or 5am at the time >.< *guilty for staying out too late* and note to self: If I keep hanging out with guys, they'll keep getting hungry... ehhh~

This weekend, Ray and Annie came from Oregon~ (they're originally from California)~ haha I had to mention that everytime i introduce them to others lol. We went out to eat Dimsum (@Orchid Garden), then off to grab some boba before heading out to the mall to shop.


Mouth watering!!


wahh... Jang Geun Suk on Volcano tea's wall!!... i'm so sad that I missed the Kpop Billboard concert on Nov 23 :'(

Anyway, we first went to H&M at the Forum Shop (Caesar's Palace). It's the biggest H&M in the world.
I saw a cute jacket I tried on...~ Don't mind me, I was bumming out.. Didn't feel like doing my hair so I tied it haha

Then off to Forever 21~ Took some snaps of a few cute clothes.
I need a silver shirt >.<~

Awesome studded shirt~ The fabric is super thin though.. Dunno if I would like that haha

I normally don't wear dresses but I like this, it's pretty sexy~ Dunno If it would suit me though hahaha

I quickly noticed the clutch on this picture and went to ask the Forever 21 staff, but noyone have ever seen it yet >.< bummerr... I want it!!!...Anyway, I walked out with one item~ Of course I couldn't resist and couldn't come out empty handed.
My new shirt ^^~ The material is thick like a sweater so It keeps you pretty warm :)

I bought a few things online also~ I received 3 Items~
Be Clear moisturizer by Etude House. When it tells you on the package that it is a skin whitener, it truely is.. It feels like applying a milky emulsion on your skin and tints it a bit to make it whiter haha. It's not recommended for darker toned people or else your face and neck will look like it's a completely different shade. Overall, I like this product~ It's good for me. Although, I wished it was creamier and thicker in terms of texture.. My skin is very dry, especially on the cheeks~ so I would need more than that. But it smells extremely good!! *I still use it everyday*

My bottom lashes came in!! Have not opened it yet but it looks nice!! I ordered top ones too but it's still on the way~ Will blog about it when it comes.. That and the Tony Moly Lip scrub and Tony Moly Latte Art Morning Pack.

They gave me free mini samples along with the Etude house Moisturizer~ So cute!!

I just set up my Christmas tree!! yay!! ~ My work~, Done all by myself~ What do you think? ^^

Last but not least, A shot of Mochii snoozing~ zZzzz... *So cute*

I feel like I was reading what I will have to face in the future.....O[]O;;
My parents are also nagging me about the same thing coz most of my friend are already graduated and got a job but I'm not = =

I love crab's egg also!!But it's kidda rare for me to have that.

I have just bought some new pack of eyelashes also.They sell cute lower eyelashes here,too but I don't think I'd need it much since my parents don't like it when I wear one.They said I looked over-done or something.I still think it's cute tho.

nice stuff! I like that Chinese foooood!! x)♪

Yuri said...

You look so young! You definitely don't look 27, I wish I had that quality lol. That sucks about you having so much to do, people need to understand that not everyone finishes school super early and it's better to go slow and make sure you get good grades than just rush through everything to get out. Don't worry about them~

I love the karaoke place you work at, the art work was awesome~ I also loved the pig rabbit one :3

I was also bummed I didn't get to go to the kpop billboard concert ;__; so much talent but it was too much money for me and I needed it for my laptop :/

Your library looks amazing O_O I fell in love with it right away, I wish mine looked like that lol.

Food also looks yummy~

27 next month!??! I seriously thought you were like 20!!! LOL

I can feel a similar feeling about being at a certain age and not accomplishing certain things >< Wish parents would understand it's ME studying and doing exams and assignments, not them ><

Oh that's awesome you can show your artistic skills at your work place =) The snowman one is cute!

Mint said...
