Recent Delights
November 10, 2015

Everything is going great so far. It seems like the storm has calmed after last week so hopefully the rest of the quarter is easy sailing. Working 2 jobs isn’t bad at all unless I’m lucky enough to have a happy workload. Plus, it’s great for the experience! Maybe I’m the odd one for liking to grade assignments as a TA… At least I’m more towards the lenient side as long as the effort and work is obvious (but I don’t make it rain 100%’s). Tutoring students is alright as long as their computers work. Otherwise, I would be spending more time fixing the computer instead of teaching something.

Dinner ft. Boyfriend’s Cooking

Since starting school, my boyfriend would cook dinner once a week. It’s great because I would have one less dinner to cook and I get to taste his delicious creations. Last week, he made tomato pasta with veggies and avocado salad. As much as I try, I’m not a salad person but the avocado salad was really tasty! I like how it’s simple to make and doesn’t need a bunch of ingredients for it to be flavorful.

Downtown Disney Adventures

This was pretty spontaneous because I was anticipating to go to the mall with a couple of friends but ended up going to Downtown Disney instead. We were looking for a gift for a kid so this is a perfect spot to go to! I ended up buying a keychain to add to my Disney Keychain collection (see next section). The gift ended up being a cute Bambi and Minnie plush/pillow- perfect for a 2 year old girl. We went to Rainforest Cafe afterwards and the place is great because of the jungle atmosphere! The restaurant is a bit overpriced for what it is whether it’s at Disney or not. But if you really want a steal while enjoying the atmosphere, go for their delicious clam chowder ;).

Disney Keychain Collection

I enjoy collecting Disney keychains even though I don’t have enough keys to utilize all of the keychains I have at once. I like to switch between the keychains I have once in a while. This is ~most~ of my collection because a couple got cut off on the bottom of the picture. My first keychain is the Mickey with the shield (top center) from my Disneyland visit in mid-2011. My newest keychain is Mickey with the head, pants, and gloves (center of the picture). Hopefully a new line of Disney keychains will roll out soon!

$hoe $hopping

It’s nice to treat yourself to something once in a while… Where “once in a while” can be defined in different durations depending on the person. I recently treated myself to a pair of BCBGeneration Brown Suede Booties. The last 2 booties I bought were from Forever 21 and one of them is still lasting while the other is breaking apart. I’m not used to spending a lot of money on shoes, but it’s time to have some quality shoes. However, I’m still on a hunt for some nice pumps!

Sweater Weather

With all of the heat happening in LA, I thought the weather would never cool down. Hurray for sweater weather!

    I love it that your boyfriend cooks for you. People say that a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but I think its the other way around! haha. I am also a fan of collecting keychains!

    Love your boots and your ootd, btw! Best Regards 🙂

    Hi! Bloghopper here 🙂

    Wow 2 jobs and studying at the same time. We don’t have that opportunity here where I live so it’s amazing if you can juggle work with school. College life for me was all about orgs and studies.

    Disney! Oh how i love anything Disney. Also a fan of collecting keychains 🙂

    Yay for things settling down! I think it’s great you’re enjoying your work and school experiences. I don’t mind grading either, and it’s something I enjoyed as a TA myself 🙂

    Whoo hoo for home-cooked meals! I’m not a salad person, either, but that avocado salad sounds super delicious!

    Sounds like you had a great time at Downtown Disney 😀 And look at those keychains! That’s quite an impressive collection!

    Those new shoes are cute! It’s so you! I’d never wear it myself, because those things are a killer on my ankles, but I think it suits you perfectly. Good luck with the hunt on some pumps!

    AND SWEATER! You’re rocking that nicely. It’s great that things are cooling down there finally! ^^

    It’s nice to know your boyfriend cooks for you. Haha my boyfriend tries so hard to do the same, but ends up failing anyway. And those are lovely keychains!!! I seriously wish I have a collection as great as that. Love the boots, too!

    Tomato pasta! 🙂

    Love the keychains! 🙂 I’ve been hearing about that Rainforest Cafe. Seems like a nice place because of the whole jungle look to it.

    I love the new boots! 😀

    I’m so happy that youre enjoying your work, it’s always really refreshing to hear that because I’m always surrounded by people who complain about work. I’m always trying to find the positivity in the experience as you are 😀

    It’s so nice that your boyfriend cooks for you, my boyfriend does too and brings me lunch sometimes especially when I’m extremely stressed xD FOOD IS THE ONLY WAY TO RESOLVE THE STRESS!!

    I’m glad you had fun, it looks like such a great place! I hope to go there one day 😉 Your pictures are making me jelly!

    THOSE SHOES GURL. YAS GURL YAS!!! That reminds me, I need to get new boots, the thing is though I cant walk in heels casually. I only wear them during special occasions but I really want to look taller 😛

    I LOVE YOUR OUTFIT, it’s so simple but super cute. Inspired my outfit for today 😉

    • Nancy ☆ November 12, 2015 at 11:29 am

      Significant other + bringing food to you = all you do is win, win, win~~~ 😀

      I’ve been wearing 5″ heels for a while and fit in with other people’s heights! Now that I’m back to flats/sandals, I am super short again XD. Do show/post your outfit when you can ;D

    At least you are awesome with computers, maybe you should charge extra if the students’ computers are not working haha. 🙂

    I wouldn’t say I am a salad person but there are some days I suddenly, randomly, feel like salad. 😛 There are some good ones to be had out there, I am sure your boyfriend can cook more amazing ones.

    I LOVE THOSE BOOTIES. I have been looking for some bootle, some ankle boots with heels, to replace the current pair I have! Want! Love your outfit too. You look absolutely adorable in that sweater. AND THE SHOES <3

    I agree with you, hurray for sweater weather! ^^ Also, I need to go to any Disney theme park, eventually. One day, I hope. Maybe when I have money and maybe I can when I have kids.

    That’s sweet that your bf cooks for you :3 My husband can’t cook, sadly.

  9. Raisa ☆ November 16, 2015 at 9:31 pm

    I love you boots! 😀 You look so cute in them with the sweater.

    That’s a lot of keychains! I only have one that my mother-in-law gave me. I only use it coz I already happened to have it. XD

    I was just thinking that it’s been a while since I went to Disneyland. I need to make another trip out of it!

    I’m glad things have calmed down! Hopefully it stays that way the rest of the year 🙂 That’s awesome that your boyfriend cooks for you once a week. Always a plus when your significant other can cook! My husband does most of the cooking for us XD

    Wahhh, you have so many Disney keychains! That’s cool a thing to collect, and I love all the different designs. Love the booties you got too! I bought a pair myself recently to prepare for the coming winter. Being in Texas, I don’t have much of a winter wardrobe, haha.

    You look cute in the last photo!
