I'm gonna be honest

I was initially against the idea of starting a blog. As a matter of fact, I still have a number of reservations about this. I'm terribly shy, and the notion of "putting myself out there," even if it's through a relatively small, and somewhat private (assuming no one I know sees this blog) medium is a bit of a turn off to me. But. The boyfriend pushed me into this, and at his behest, I decided that I would at the very least browse through blogging platforms. Half an hour later, I found myself mulling over a title for my blog. I slowly warmed up to the idea of blogging because I realized that I needed a healthy outlet to blow off steam and to let my creative juices flow whenever I needed a break from studying. Prior to this revelation, I coped with study stress by lurking through yelp, eating bags of chips, gulping cups full of milk tea, and polishing off heaping servings of ice cream.When I spotted my first patch of cellulite at the tender age of 21, I realized that I needed to stop filling my body with junk, and start channeling my stress in more productive ways. I briefly entertained the thought of exercising in order to manage my stress, but that idea quickly dissipated. I dabbled into watching K dramas but then I quickly realized that I still needed to find something to do while I was waiting for newer episodes to be released! Enter...blogging. It just seemed like a reasonable thing to do.

I know I'm making it sound like nursing school students have too much free time on their hands, but I assure you, we really don't. When I'm not busy figuring out ways to waste time, I'm busy burying my face in my books!

This blog is a photo collection of the things in my life that I enjoy. It also focuses on my day to day activities (when I'm not studying) as well as my quest in figuring out how to dress myself! I'm about 5'2" tall, and I'm still figuring out what looks good on me and what doesn't. I'm open to any and all suggestions!
