I have exactly one month left until I move in to my new dorm and sophomore year begins! Being at home has been amazing for some major re-charging and re-inventing, but I am just itching to get back to my friends, late nights, California weather, and even classes! (Yeah, right.)
This is what I've been up to all weekend:
This is my new favorite work station. The formal dining room! It's the least-used room in the entire house, but I set up camp here a couple of days ago on a whim and basically just never left! With my homemade Tazo chai latte, a notebook full of ideas, and a comfy pillow, I am happy as a calm.
My parents whipped up some of these huangchiao meat pies, a delicacy from their childhood apparently. It was super flaky and yummy, but it was even more delightful to hear them share stories from their childhood!
My back has been bothering me for a few days, so I decided some self-prescribed therapy: a hot bath, a sappy book, some lemon-sage Bliss scrub, and a L'Occitane bath bomb that smelled divine.
Baking bread on the weekends has become a tradition now between my mom and me - the aroma of fresh, hot bread is just perfection.
I haven't been to the library since I got my Kindle last year, but I have been hardcore craving the scent of real books, so I stopped by the library for some prime chick-lit. It's my ultimate guilty pleasure. On a rainy day, reading in a quiet corner with some Milk Duds or a KIND bar (my new obsession... seriously, these are so addicting) is absolute bliss.
It's going to be a bit quiet 'round these parts for awhile as all of my friends have gone back to school... Jumbo sad face. I simply don't understand why my university chose to be on the quarter system and has an out-of-whack schedule.
How was your weekend?
