Happy Birthday ME and Nancy~

My birthday is coming in 2 days [sorry for the lack of posting, nothing happened...]!

I wait in anticipation for my presents-- but it kind of sucks for my friends who have to buy double the presents because my other friend has the same birthday as me...except we are a year apart. Too bad <3~ style="font-weight: bold;">cheap asian and spending $20 on me, $20 on Nanar, $20 for dinner, $6 for me and Nanar, and $? gratuity... Wow, I feel like a jerk. Seriously.

But I got some really nice stuff, so thanks everyone! I'm really happy!

1. Baggie and Slipper thingies - Nanar
2. Electric [dangerous] Bed Warmer ♥ - Skava, Amanda, Jennifer, Kai
3. Sephora Giftcard and Mirror - Katie
4. Bath and Body Work's Bag with smelly stuff and interchangeable heart necklace - THE BOYS
5. Express Giftcard / [finding me a Date to Winter Formal? ♥] - Military boy, Kyle Kevin
6. Locket Necklace "Karen is so totally awesome" - Stephany
7. Cute Red Skull Shirt - Kat
8. Clock/Picture Frame [that was supposed to be for Xmas] - Anderson
9. Makeup [Double-Eyelid Tape hahaha, wow]

I love material things my friends~

One more year older and one more year put behind us but we're all getting one more year closer to our goal. Driving, Boys, Graduation, whatever-- I know you guys will all be there for me and so, I love you guys~

Visit to The Nucleus | Art Gallery and Store

Passing Ships
Copyright Kazu Kibuishi

I went to the Nucleus today! I think Alhambra is kinda ghetto-- but since I live only about half an hour away, I decided to go to the Nucleus to check out the Imaginary Spaces exhibition [it was the second to last day]... I originally went to check out Kazu Kibuishi's Passing Ships print in the flesh-- but I ended up discovering a lot of other artists too such as Jon Han and Israel Sanchez. Nonetheless, I can honestly say, it's a lot better to see everything there than online. Kibuishi is kind of like the coordinator of Flight comics-- which I own two books only. Sorry! But, really, he's like a master-- all of his work impresses me.

I even went through the trouble of wasting money on buying one of the Passing Ships prints. $35!--Nonetheless, as a fan, I'm really happy.

Overall, even though the Nucleus a really small place-- it has a lot of exclusive art books and prints as well as a little art gallery that's filled with treasure-- go check out the newest exhibition starting January 13th called Dig Me Out. Featuring artists like Chitose Yagi, Kazuko Taniguchi and Teriyaki Tagashira.

Happy New Year!

Well, I just want to say, Happy New Year, everyone! Even though this is only my 10th post, it's still a new start and a new year! I hope you've all made some resolutions [to break...or keep]. A few to start for me is to stop procrastinating which coincides with sleep earlier [before 3]. Honostly, it's the last week of Winter Break and I'm not done with over 75% of my homework! Go me! I might add photos later-- I'm not on my own laptop.

1. Stay Healthy.
2. Stop Procrastinating.
3. Sleep Earlier.
4. Continue Self-Study of Japanese.
5. Finish all Art Projects.
