This is why we have friends: to take our minds off of upcoming exams (read: hell week) by stuffing us with cheesecake. Chocolate swirl, I’m your girl!

3 things I like about this photo: one.) that’s the amount of time I allot myself to play Guild Wars, two.) I decided to try to learn how to use aperture mode to control my depth of field on my camera (f2.8 is good stuff), and three.) it was a great way to distract myself from studying for binocular vision!

Greatswords are great.

Not a picture that I took myself, but an important one nonetheless.

A pretty statue found in the gardens of Thai Temple (one of my favorite places to eat Thai food). It’s only open on Sundays for a few hours, but their mango sticky rice is to die for. You can read all about it in my Yelp review - also trying to become Yelp Elite in 2013 too. My, aren’t we ambitious this year.

2013 is the year of the snake! (Best year ever.) My parents did some decorating in my room, as evidenced by these cut-outs they nailed to my wall. They knew I loved the color green, but perhaps they thought I’d grow into the color pink too.

To JS and LL, who thought I would be gone forever: I’M BACK, SUCKAHS! 2013 is a great year for newish starts, and my goal will be to last longer than the 59 days from before. Back here in the bay, there are always plenty of great things to take pictures of. Here, I present the Bay Lights: 25,000 LED lights adorning the Bay Bridge until 2015. Thank goodness I’m not stuck with that electricity bill!

Since my apartment’s recycling bin was stolen a few months ago, I’ve been steadily collecting water bottles in my room. Finally, I decided to leave it outside by a tree so that a hobo wouldn’t have to work so hard digging through the trash. Today, the bottles were gone and look what I found!

Why eat a huge cheesecake when you could eat one of my mini pumpkin cheesecakes and get the same amount of calories?

From our fancy dessert day after finals (yes, we really did eat desserts for a day), may I present two pieces of super expensive chocolate? If you ask me, I still prefer my dark orange chocolate ball.

Hot chocolate? No one cool drinks hot chocolate anymore. It’s all about liquid chocolate. Verdict: it tastes the same as hot chocolate. But richer.

Hanging out with sophisticated people makes you classier. Or at least more willing to spend money on classy things, like REAL macaroons. Unfortunately, I’m like a guy: sweet things are sweet.

Bet you haven’t eaten a gummy bear that’s as thick and as long as your thumb. In any case, it must be awkward to be a conjoined twin that’s connected at these places.

About:

There's really no method to my madness here. I've discovered that the more I structure things, the less I want to do them. What you see here is what you get: I do the things that I love when I want to, because life is too short to really do anything else.

pho·top·ic /fōˈtäpik/
Adjective: Relating to or denoting vision in daylight or other bright light, believed to involve chiefly the cones of the retina.

My favorite color is hex #009900. My favorite workout involves laughing for a minute straight. I am a disciple of structured procrastination. Those who choose to debate with me often say that I am a contrarian. (But I'm not.) If I could have a magical power, I'd want to travel through time with an omniscient point of view. I am spiritual but not religious, and lately Taoism has been gaining a stronger foothold in my life. Since optimism and pessimism are equally removed from reality, I prefer to view the world as a glass half full to keep hope alive.
