Perpetually Caroline Turns 3 // Currently

– Perpetually Caroline has turned three,
so have a slice of cake with me! –

These three years have been the most memorable, the most transformative years of my life. I hate that it sounds so cheesy, but it's so, so true. I've made friends of a lifetime, lost some dearly loved ones, defined what "home" means to me, traveled far and wide, experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows all within these 1000 or so days. (Can't do math, ending Asian stereotypes left and right!)

And this tiny little Internet space has made note of all of that. It's all here for me to peruse at leisure one day when I decide I'm in a cringing kind of mood. For that, I couldn't be more grateful. Thank you all for being here along the way.

More on blog stuff next week, but for now, I'm –


Watching :: Buffy the Vampire Slayer with Cassandra. It's become our nightly ritual to watch an episode or five. Any Buffy fans out there?!

Eating :: oh my god the very best food. So, I've been spoiled this year ... our house's chef is SPECTACULAR. Literally, she has not made a single less-than-superb meal yet. We've had lobster and steak and bread bowls and Tuscan and Greek and Chinese and suuuuuuuch amazingness. Tonight we had enchiladas and I went back for thirds, like what.

Shopping :: for blog-related stuffs. I bought a $50 set of actions from A Beautiful Mess today. Wincey wincey on the pricetag, but oh what pretty photos they make!

Planning :: Spring Quarter classes. It's all happening too fast!

Playing :: OneRepublic's "I Lived." Seriously you guys, the most inspirational, get out there and leave your footprint and buy that plane ticket and find your passion, kind of song. Obsessed.

Reading :: Not my textbooks. (But I'm about to start Wild soon!)

Enjoying :: This mild winter. Really, it's been so beautiful.

Waiting :: For the weekend. Has this week been trudging along extra slow for anyone else? TGIF!

Needing :: To get my Canon lens fixed. I've been itching to get out there and snap photos, but that's a wee bit difficult when my favorite lens has gone kaput. (Well and also I kind of lost the charger, can I do anything right.)

Wearing :: Okay, so this doesn't leave this blog, but I definitely only wore non-legging pants ONE TIME this week. ONE. TIME. #collegeperks #aintsorryboutit

Feeling :: Not completely great. I miss my grandpa and my family and that feeling of knowing exactly where you're going to be next. But I'm also extremely grateful for so very much. Good things to come, I can feel it!

Wishing :: To be on the go. This time last year, I was all over Europe. Staying still for the past couple of months has been a challenge, but I know that I need this. In no time, I'll be on the move again, craving for nothing but the comfort of everything familiar.

Toodles! Have the happiest of weekends!
