A Bit of Everything
April 26, 2014

A lot of things happened within the past week. Long story short, here are some highlights:

Last Batch of Acceptances!

I’m listing this first because I finally heard back from all of the schools I applied for. The top three schools of my choice that I applied to accepted me which is Cal Poly Pomona under computer information systems, UC Irvine under informatics, and UC San Diego under computer science ^_^. I was overly excited about it on Twitter because it has significant meaning to me so bear with me if you follow me or something. I already decided to stick with Pomona because they introduced me to the whole cyber security and networking field ~3 years ago when I was in CyberPatriot in high school, they are involved with competitions and events that help students develop hands-on skills, I personally know their department chair, and so on. If I was deciding, it would be a tough choice because as a kid, I wanted to go to Irvine in general AND I wanted to do computer science but they don’t have my best interest now.

“First Time for Everything”

On Thursday, I went to eat sushi with a friend from band who never had sushi before but wanted to try. On top of that, they don’t like seafood so it almost defeats the whole purpose of trying out sushi since it’s mostly fish. At least they were open enough to give it a try even though they didn’t like it at the end. On the bright side, I got a bigger share of sushi on my end of the plate, haha. There are always food that someone doesn’t like and it’s okay. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes for food so it’s a fair game.

Formal & Fancy

Yesterday, my boyfriend and I dressed up for prom…. Just kidding! We were dressed up for a banquet of one of the club he’s in so here’s a picture of us. My hair got a bit messed up from the wind but ~thug life~.

Sprinkles Cupcakes!!

I ♥ Sprinkles cupcakes because their cupcakes are they’re delicious and don’t make me feel bloated. My boyfriend bought me three red velvet cupcakes (I wanted 3) and they were deliciousness in every bite. The cool thing about Sprinkles is that some of their location has a “cupcake ATM” where instead of dispensing money, it dispenses cupcake(s)! So if anyone is craving for some Sprinkles cupcakes at 3 in the morning, this is perfect. Here are my cupcakes ☺. Don’t mind the awkward empty space in the box because I wanted 3 cupcakes.


There are around 6 weeks left in the semester (including finals week)! The “finish line” is so close yet so far +_+.

ps. I’ll catch up on reading everyone’s awesome posts/blogs sometime this week after I clear my queue of homework.

    Congrats on getting accepted to the uni of your choice! I think your choice of sticking with Pomona sounds good, especially since you already have a connection to them!

    And you and your boyfriend look great together! I really like that shirt you’re wearing. I like how the sleeves open up. Also, the colour goes well with your skirt! Love the pattern 😀

    And cupcake(s) ATM? I never heard of it, but that sounds like such a cool idea! I’m curious, but how much were the cupcakes?

    And good luck with getting all those homework out of your queue! I still think school would be great if it weren’t for homework, haha!

    Congratulations on being accepted! Oh gosh. I can see the future me in you right now. I’m studying IT now and one of my modules is Information Security & Forensics, so I think in the future I’d be looking at the same courses as you did! Hahaha :

    So cute of your friends to want to try sushi even though they don’t fancy seafood 😛 Hahaha. Anyway, I recently had sushi too. I was craving so much for it after reading your countless sushi posts and I finally caved in 😀

    And that photo of you and your boyfriend IS SO ADORABLE <3 Super love your top and your skirt OMG <3 I'm like fan-girling. Please forgive me HAHAHA

    Anyway have a great week ahead! 🙂

    Glad to hear your finalized decision on universities! It’s always good to take your interest and overall fit into consideration when deciding. Seems like it all worked out for you quite nicely. 🙂 How long is the program for you? Also, forgive my ignorance, but how far is it from San Diego? I’m hoping to get stationed there as my first command in 2016, sooo….*Hint* 😀

    Lookin’ good as always, you two! Hang in there! Those 6 weeks will come and go before you know it!

    Yay, CONGRATS on getting accepted to all three.. that’s amazing! Yummm, I love Sprinkles, too. My favorite is the banana. I can barely eat one though. Usually I cut it in quarters, lol. I’m glad they have the mini cupcakes now!

    Congrats on getting accepted to your top three! I think that’s awesome that Pomona was the one that introduced you to cyber security and that you already know the department chair. It sounds like a good choice!

    I had to introduce my husband to sushi when we first dated because he had never had it either. Fortunately, he liked it, so we can get sushi together now 😉

    You guys look great in your formal clothing! I love it when guys match their dress shirt with the girl’s dress 🙂

    Yummm, I’m jealous of your Sprinkles cupcakes. I still wish we had one here. I would love a cupcakes ATM!

    Congrats on all the acceptances! It’s a great start and you’ll bloom in the department ^^

    It’s a wonderful photo of you and your boyfriend! I love how you’re matching in colour 🙂

    The cupcake looks yummy :3 I’ve never just ordered 3 cupcakes, I always go for a full box or just the one hahaha. Love cake too much xD

    Cupcake ATM? I’ve heard of it but never seen it…now I want to try it. Haha It’s okay about the three cupcakes. Sometimes we want odd numbers than even. I know I’m like that at times.

    Congrats on getting accepted into the school that you wanted and then some!

    And you look stunning in your outfit with your boyfriend. You guys are the cutest couple ever, seriously. It’s okay. The wind or no wind, he still looks nice. The only time I saw my husband in a tux was on our wedding day. Hahaha

    You’re right. Food pretty much is fair game as people do like you said, have their own likes and dislikes. I for instance, never tried seafood so I can’t say if I like it or not. I’ve tried sushi and it wasn’t bad but I do know that there are different varieties of it. Regardless, you can do it!

    I only have two more class periods left. Hahahaha I’m nervous like heck. But I know we’ll both do fine in the end.

    Cupcake ATMs sound adorable! You two look adorable. 😀

    And congratulations on getting accepted! They all sound pretty great tom ebut I’m glad you got the school you wanted!

    Congratulations on getting accepted into your Top 3 universities! Well deserved! 🙂

    I never liked sushi, even though I love eating fish. Maybe it’s because of that green thing they use to wrap around the rice or something? Idk lmao

    You both look so cute together. And no, your hair’s not messed up. 🙂

    Congratulations on being accepted to all of your choice universities, and it sounds like you made the best decision for yourself. It’s always good to have a connection to the University and the town that it’s in.

    I’ve never had sushi before either…I’m hoping to try some in the next month or so. There is supposed to be a good sushi place in my hometown – I picked up a menu a couple of days ago. Though to be honest, I wasn’t very impressed with the interior. But everyone says the sushi is delish…so maybe it’s like judging a book by its cover?

    I hope that your boyfriend and yourself had a pleasant time at the banquet, and your hair looks very cute. I love your outfit as well.

    I’m also now sad that there isn’t a place to get Sprinkles cupcakes near me…even though I’m eating a bit healthier as of late. But I’d still love to try at least one…is red velvet your favorite?

    Finally, best of luck with school and finals and all that comes along with it! 🙂

      Yes! Red velvet is my favorite so far. There are other favorites that I like but nothing beats Sprinkles red velvet cupcake. :). And thank you for the wishes!
