School has been really busy lately..... besides classes, studying, cooking and feeding Diamond have taken up most of my time. I already have two tests next week..... crossing my fingers that I will do fine.

Here is a gold/green look that I did today using Loreal HIP Duo Eyeshadow in Flare and a Missha deep green single eyeshadow. I rarely use greens, but I like the result today. I might start to use greens a little bit more often.

Now moving on to my weird dreams last week... maybe I've been really stressed and overwhelmed by school lately.... so the dreams are kind of depressing
So first one, I went to a museum w/ my friends. The museum has many floors, but the staircase is like those spiral staircases. But it's very narrow, so narrow that it could only fit one person at a time, and the hole on the ground where the staircase goes through is like the same size as the hole for the firefighter's pole.
My friends and I decided to go to the basement of the museum. I had such a hard time coming down from the stairs and trying not to fall. That floor had paintings. In one corner, there's a desk covered with white table clothe and there are brochures and some pamphlets. I walked over to take a look, but there were a lot of wires on the ground. I had to make every step very carefully not to trip. Then one of the guys who organized the desk yelled "Don't go there. You won't be able to afford the damages, and I don't want to organize the orientation desk again." I felt so offended. It's sad, but true. haha.......
Second dream was about me going back to China to visit. I was wandering around a place where I used to pass by on the way to school. Then I saw three of my elementary school friends, whose names I could still recall. I ran up to them, and said hi. I intentionally didn't introduce myself because I wanted to test them how fast they could recognize me. So I stood there and grinned. Instead of recognizing me right away, they stared at me for a long time and simply couldn't even tell I was their classmates.
Very depressing right? I think they are full of self-doubt..... But I don't understand where it comes from.... I'm pretty content with my life right now, even though I am poor and I am away from all my friends.

I've been MIA

This week has been a long and exhausting week. Our orientation started, and I've been away from home from 7:30-6:30 everyday.

The rewarding thing is that we finally received our white coats from the White Coat Ceremony, which signifies the beginning of our long and intensive four years of training. Here are some photos.....

This is what I wore to a semi formal luncheon and then to the ceremony. Top from Sears ($12?). Skirt from Nordstrom Rack. (90% wool! $26). Heels from Marshalls ($39.99). Remember those high heels I was raving about few weeks ago, how they are really comfy...... NOT!!!! ! We had do a substantial amount of walking from the parking structure to the lunceon. My feet kept on sliding down to the pointy part of the heels. When I'm standing still, my feet are all right. As soon as I started walking, my feet hurt like hell....... Needless to say, my toes are full of blisters right now. Most other girls from my class also had the "limping" problem toward the end of the day. Another pain being a girl. I always joke aobut how I wear shoes that don't fit me like I'm Cinderella's evil step sisters....... If you know the original story (Anderson likes to put these gruesome graphic details), you'll get what I mean. I will have to wear flip flops for a while now....

Yippee!!! I'm going to be a doctor in 4 years. =D

Although my parents weren't able to make it to the ceremony, I was very content that I'm finally wearing a real white coat (w/ responsibilities, not just another lab coat). haha..... Still having mixed feelings about going back to being a full time student, but I'm very happy that the orientation has ended on a good note.

And since I have the burden of being a professional in the public, I have to watch what I say or do online. (Only my parents and my very close friends know about my youtube channel.) So if anyone from my class catch me doing videos or posting random beauty blogs, I think I'll be super embarrassed. So I shall keep my alter ego as a secret identity.....

Lastly, (as usual), I'll leave you a pic of Diamond. She's been naughty lately. One day, I was sniffing her (why you ask me, I don't really know either.) So my face was very close to hers, and without a sign, she bit on my eyebrow. I could clearly remember that I heard a sound and realized that she had punctured through my skin. I had to pull her back and squeeze out her dirty dirty fishy saliva out of my tiny wound. Then I was complaining to my parents how Diamond pretended to be all cute before I adopted her, now she's becoming ferocious! My mother was like "Why ub the world would you put your face there??!?!?!!" IONO...... haha..... I still love Diamond.
