i don't make new year resolutions.
at least i don't consider my goals to be new year resolutions.
everyday should be a day where you strive for your goals! but january just has that certain effect. you open a new calendar and look at all the pages- all the days- ahead of you and think, i have *this* amount of time to do something. i wish calendars were circular, like a clock. you just turn the dial and the months keep going. but instead, we have linear time keepers so you view the year as having a start and an end instead of time infinitely rolling on.
further more, it seems like new year resolutions are setting yourself up for despair. seeing so much time ahead of you can make you feel more ambitious than you really are... i like to set the bar low so i don't have to fall far ;)
but anyway, this year i decided it would be good for my health to stop staying up for 24 hours at a time. my schedule causes me to sleep at odd hours of the day, sometimes i will wake up and it's too late to go back to sleep before work! so i stay up, then go to work, then go to school, and then go to the research lab or run errands, and then come home to do chores and eat and before you know it- lo! you've been up for over 24 hours! you would think it's easy to pass out but when you have stuff to do, it's easy to lose track of time. you can't go to sleep, too much to do!
i've been really good since january, budgeting my time; even sleeping for two hours a day is better than none. but this month i've reverted to my old ways. i keep getting over booked and i've done four 24 hour days this month alone! two in the same week! -____- i'm so disappointed with myself.

i really can't wait for school to be over so i can catch up on sleep.
on the other hand, i wish there was some way to replace sleep. what if we never had to sleep? wouldn't it be so much more useful?!

waaah... yesterday i went shopping and found some cute stuffs at forever21. i have so much clothes... really shouldn't be shopping more. but i got two super cute sweaters and two dresses (and four pairs of socks), for only $90, how could i resist...

this dress is perfect! the back is really unique and it has sleeves (when i need to cover my tattoos) and it hides all your bra straps. i wish there were other colors and patterns too.

leopard crisscross back dress

i also got this swearter, in pink and the beige one too. i could use more light colors for spring- my wardrobe is 80% black/gray and 20% other colors. in particular, i have one peach and beige dress that could use a sweater and my sister (the queen of beige) said my white sweater looks strange next to pastel colors.

zip-up sweater

one of the socks i found had apples on them. soooo cute! i wear knee high/tall socks to work all the time so i have a pretty big collection, even though no-show socks seem to be the style now.

borrowing my sister's shoes for this pic. vans run in the family. :D

finally, i found this really cute tunic/dress. again, trying to increase my beige/light/spring color wardrobe. this would match with the pink sweater, no? i saw it in the pink color too but i thought it was a little *too* girly with the ruffles and all. at least with the brown i could wear it with light colors or dark colors. i'm still on the fence about this dress, i might change my mind. :P

tiered mini dress

perhaps you can help me decide?
i'll get dressed and show some pictures soon. ^^

after shopping i met up with le boyfriend and ate at nordstrom cafe. it was his first time there and he really liked it! i had mushroom ravioli and creme brulee. he had chicken and penne in tomato alfredo and a bowl of tomato bisque. we shared a bleu cheese pear salad. yuuummmm.

he has informed me the season finale of young justice is today so i am going to watch it now and will be sharing my reactions shortly. after that, i plan to eat dinner, do some chemistry notes and then take a nap before work (blood banking tonite).
