King Cat

I just spent three hours baking a cheesecake for tomorrow's Christmas Eve dinner which is weird because I have never been so dedicated to baked goods before, unless of course I'm eating them. I'm oddly excited about this Christmas and I think that has something to do with the lack of gift buying and receiving. So far, I have only prepared pleasantries for Daniel and vice versa. Other than alleviating the pressure of pleasing everyone and having to fake gratitude for receiving lame gifts are no longer the biggest issues, my minimalistic approach to gift-giving this year I think will really allow me to enjoy Christmas for what it really is --- eating and drinking with those you love.
Foccusing on something relevant to fashion, it is no news that I love the 90's and am obsessed with the stylings of grungers. Lately, I noticed that while I do enjoy going about in different styles, but I am absolutely in love and most comfortable with dressing up by "dressing down", grunge style. To me, nothing says " I am way too cool to care about what I'm wearing, but I still look rockin' " more than those anti-hip Seattle kids.

Perhaps I should look more nonchalant to match the carelessly ripped tights?

I was content with just a partial showing of the overalls but I figured in order to appreciate just how 12 I look, a full view is necessary.

I got this meshy/lace shirt from a Value Village in Seattle. It goes with the theme of the outfit, don't you think?

the end is soooooo close

This is my favorite pencil skirt not only because it was practically free ($2) but it's also so comfortable, and for me the need for comfort always overrides the need to look hot. However, I often try to have a bit of both.
My exams are nearing the end and I sure am glad. Although I am dreading the holidays and the stress of gift giving but I am looking forward to lots of snowman-making and cul de sac sledding. When you are someone like me who live in the burbs, with no car and have no money to go away to anywhere exotic, those are about the only winter activities you can do without venturing afar and emptying the already barren bank account.
In another extremely awesome news, Canada has recently adopted the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare. Being an animal activist/lover, this means a great deal to me because it symbolizes the unraveling of a brighter future for all animals. Also, this makes me extremely proud to be Canadian because I believe we are the only country that has adopted this notion.

No More ERP, Please!

I am currently studying for my cognitive neuroscience final coming up this Friday and am completely sick of all the neurophysiology behind brain mechanism and dynamics! I've been studying for two hours and have not managed to remember a single thing about ERPs or EEGs and you know what, I don't think I care anymore...Uggggh, somebody save me.

Traveled to school today in this.

Wrote my first exam in this. Go colors!!!

Final exams are fast approaching and I'm still in summer mode. In fact, for this entire semester I've not been feeling up to doing school work at all. I hope I get out of this funk in time for next semester.This is such an old-lady sweater. It's super fuzzy and has a cat on it, from here it kind of looks like a possum

"Look at my horse, my horse is amazing..." Jazz-hands!
