Something about it just being me and my own microscope identifying what types of organisms from the samples sent to the department makes me giddy inside! Lol, ultimate nerd here!
But other than that, I'm just trying to stay afloat. Graduation is coming up soon! Omg, I got my cap and gown, for some reason I was afraid that it would be too short on me. When you buy it, the size is not S/M/L/XL, etc. Instead, the cap size is based upon your height. Like, for me I bought the 5'3 to 5'5 since I'm 5'5. I wasn't sure whether to go the next size up, because the lady recommended that if I wear high heels then, it might fall too short on me. When I wear heels, I stand at 5'8! But I'm glad I just stuck with the original size, I rather have some leg exposure! Lol!
I've been buying a lot of stuff online lately. I guess since I've been so busy, I haven't had any time to actually go shopping at the malls or boutiques PHYSICALLY. So what's the next best thing? I can just resort to "clicking" my purchases, hahaha. It's so much easier! But the downside is that you always end up buying so much shit because it takes half the effort to "shop" when it's online.
I got this cute dress on amiclubwear.com! It's soo cute, isn't it? I want to get more "girly" dresses, so I will be forced to dress in something more than the usual summer attire of just tank tops and jean shorts. I don't know about you, but I'm so so sick of that look! Especially, since it only makes you look younger? Pair this baby with some sexy wedge heels and it'll make for the perfect outfit for a night out on the town with the hubby! :-)
I also got a pair of Patent Snake Platform Heels that I just received in the mail yesterday! Yay for getting packages! Haha, that's so sad....I'm so out of touch that it only takes a few packages in the mail to put a smile on my face. But oh my god, these heels are KILLER! I'm talking, these things are 4.5 inches tall! I must say that these will be the highest pair of heels that I've come to own. I was trying them on yesterday and it looked sooo GORGEOUS, but I was having some difficult trying to walk in them, hahaha. I think it would be fine to walk on carpet or some ground that has traction on it, but I'm not so sure how I would fare on slippery floor! Agggh, I almost want to return them but they just look so fierce and hot, I don't think I will. I'll take these out for a "test trial" and if it doesn't work, I guess it will just end up in my ever-growing collection of shoes. *sigh*
I also got this dress from Forever 21...at first when I saw it, I just remember thinking "Ugh, what the heck?!!" But the more I looked at it, I loved the particular structure of the dress. The design, ehh, not so much. So I went on to try it in the dressing room, and I just fell in love with it! Have you ever done that? Seen something that caught your attention, but not necessarily because it was the conventional type of piece of clothing? And then you tried it on, and just felt so great in it? Haha, well, this dress did that for me.
I'm just so excited! I bought so many more dresses that are coming in sometime this week. Uggh, I literally had to hide my credit cards! I haven't gone so far as to "freeze" them in ice yet (like from Confessions of a Shopaholic), but I have seriously pondered doing so. Funny story, though, I hid my cards about two weeks ago. I guess I must have been so good, that somehow I forgot that I had them hidden. So I was eating out with my friend, and all of a sudden when I was trying to pull out my card to pay I couldn't find it! So I started freaaaaking out!!! I called my boyfriend to see if it somehow had fallen out of my purse and was in his car or if it was in the house. Haha, he started getting worried too. But after 10 minutes of freaking out not only myself, but my boyfriend, and my friend...I remembered that it was in MY car! I just left it there so that it wasn't so accessible to me if I were in the mall. And knowing how lazy I am when it comes to physically walking, I know that if I kept it in my car then if there were some "true emergency" (and no, I couldn't justify my shopping as being in the emergency category any longer) then at least I could still have access to the card. BUT, it wouldn't be so accessible that I could just use it on a whim like I always do when I'm anywhere near a clothing or make-up store, hahaha. I don't konw, somehow, it just makes sense in my head!
I hope everyone has the great rest of the weekend. Haha, only Sunday but hey...it's what you make of it, right? As for me, I have quite a bit of studying to finish up! Byyyyyyessss.

So yesssssss, my spring break is going fine so far *knocks on wood* Just worked today, and I was so exhausted so had to dip out early. I am hoping that the weather will work out in my favor tomorrow (which it should! Ohhhh yeah! 70 degrees tomorrow! Which is kinda crazy?!! Because we had a HUGE snow day just a couple days ago on Monday, forcing all government and school activities/work to be SHUT DOWN. And now all of a sudden we have sunshine and humidity???)But I'm hoping me and the bf can head out on a romantic night out in Old Town Alexandria. Oooo, haha, that's the first place he took us for our very first date. So that area definitely, definitely holds a special place in my heart! PLUS!!! They have these really cool "ghost tours" when it hits nighttime. Ooo, shiver me timbers! ;)

Oh yeah, if you haven't checked out the movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic", I highly recommend! Haha, I made my bf come see it with me (even though he insisted on bringing his Nintendo DS in the dark theater to play while the movie was going on. You best believe I gave him a lecture about how the ambient light would affect the other poor movie-goers who forked out $10/per ticket!)
I absolutely LOVED this Lanvin piece she had on. Everything just works so perfectly with her creamy complexion and fiery hair color!
I love wearing pieces that you can "cinch" your waist with a belt! It's so classic and elegant!
I LOVES IT!!!! I try to limit the amount of pink that I wear these days just because I feel like I should dress more my age (haha, so everyone can stop asking what high school I attend! Omg, it seriously gets soo old after awhile). Pink just makes me feel so baby-girly-cutesy. *gag* But at the same time, I hate hate HATE WEARING BLACK!!! It's one of those colors I steer way cleAr of, unless it's for some formal function or event.
I'm so weird, sometimes. I just want to be naked and not have to worry about what to wear each morning I wake up. Haha, think of all the extra minutes of Zzz's I could catch! Ohhh, yeah. That'd be the day!
Anyway, my stomach is growling like crazy....I think I might have to actually cave in to these hunger pangs. Ugggh, I'm so weeeak, hahaha. Our spring break is this week! So to everyone who's off as well, enjoy enjoy enjoy! =]
