Giving Thanks

I went to Casey and Matts home this thanksgiving. Their home, family, and food offerings were beautiful perfect things. I rode up to Newport beach with my friend Francis. We had a full 3 hours of female bonding before the love fest that was Casey-Matts Thanksgiving Part.  It was the best way I could have spent the holiday.

The eye must travel

I am sick. I've slept so much these past 24 hours that the division between dream and reality is blurring. I can not feel my face. I know staying in, not working, and relaxing will help me get better, but its so difficult for me to give up my weekend in favor of my physical well being. I had plans! I had to give up working (there is a deadline I missed on friday), a climbing trip to mount woodsen this morning, and studying for my midterm (due online sunday night).

Still, I am alive (for now) and the eye must travel. Here are the things that have captured my heart and imagination this week, despite being confined to the four walls of my living room.

1) This Elsa Inspired Wedding Dress. I do have nuptials coming soon myself.. hmm.

10 Things Lately... November

1. I got an A on my first midterm at SDSU.This might mean that I will get an A in the class. I haven't gotten my second midterm back yet, but I feel like I have the foundation to pull it out when push comes to shove.

What do female engineers wear?

I am aware that most women featured in the photos in this post are actually technicians.

Its an important question. Dianne Chong at the Seattle Times identified this question as the first question women ask when starting their engineering Careers.

When a young physicist asks me what to wear to work, she’s not asking for fall-fashion trends.
She’s actually asking: “How do I fit in at my office, where everyone else is a man?” The fact that women are still asking these questions exposes a deep sense of not belonging.
I agree. Women do not know how to fit into an implied dress code when the only examples are men.

On My Radar... November

Dream Big Purchases

School makes the future look a little bleak in terms of purchasing power. So I did what any type A obsessive planner would do. I made a 5 year plan. It takes into account my bills, food, savings, and even modest vacations. I allowed a discrecenary fund for things like coffee with friends and dinners out, but my plan is to use this fund to treat myself on long term purchases I've had my eye on.

 I figure, if I can think of an item long enough to save for it, then the wait will make it all the better. If I lose interest, then its probably for the best that I didn't buy it impulsively

Here are 10 items I have my eye on right now:::::: ->>>>

5 things I would tell my teenage self

Pardon my dust. This post overshares.
1)   This isn’t your only chance to make friends

I wasn’t very popular in high school. I didn’t make friends like I saw people make friends on TV. I was apart of a military family and I moved schools a lot. I didn’t have that one friend I knew for my entire life. I thought high school was the ultimate test of how well you would do in real life. I had the unfortunate understanding that I would live the rest of my life alone.

 Now I know that there are a lot of people in the world and I only need a handful of them to be close to me for me to feel like I belong to a community.
