Starting The School Semester In Style

Audrey-Hepburn-

Dear Morning,

This morning I woke refreshed from the five long days of the week and had a hot cup of tea. It has been a while since I had hot tea because I would usually drink cold sweet tea. It is a southern thing.

I remember when I lived up north in Michigan, I would always ask for sweet tea every time I went out to eat. It took me ten years to know that sweet tea didn’t exist in the the north. So, whenever I wanted sweet tea, I would wait until it was time to visit my grandmother. Now that I live in the south again, I feel more close to home and the sweet tea. haha

Recently, I have finally received my final grades for the summer. I have all As. Yay! From my previous blog posts, I have been nagging and complaining about when I was going to see my final grades. It took a month to wait. A month! They did not even post the final grades until every single student was done with summer classes.

Anyway, I cannot wait for fall semester to start and to start working because I just do not like staying in the house. I would go out and shop but I am on a tight budget. I know the only things that I am going to spend on are books and school supplies. Especially, the books!  My fall semester books are expensive this semester coming up. Therefore, I shall shop until I am dead gorgeous because I am going to shop for the stylish school supplies. School cannot be fun without colorful notebooks and pens to keep you entertained. I really want to buy an antique briefcase to store my supplies just like the picture below:

I love vintage stuff~

Speaking of school supplies, whatever happened to the Lisa Frank school supplies? In case some of you do not remember, here are a few pictures to refresh your memory:

When I was a little girl I used to always bug my Mimi (mother) to buy Lisa Frank’s notebooks and binders for me. I never cared for the stickers and pens. Recently, I have been looking for the notebooks and other stuff, but couldn’t find anywhere in the nearby stores. Weird…

I did a little research about Lisa Frank and what happened to their products. I found the answer to the question and the answer is right here. To make story short, Lisa Frank is now vintage, but according to the Lisa Frank website, you can still buy their products online…yea. Lisa Frank is history, but I have a feeling Lisa Frank will make a future comeback. Who knows? We shall wait and see.

What The Heck Is My New Year’s Resolution?

Image

Dear New Years,

Happy New Years…I cannot say it feels like a new year yet but hopefully… sooner or later.

Today, I want to discuss about….new year’s resolutions while I am jamming to Michael Jackson’sRemember The Time” (Damn I love him). Anyway, I have not made an official new year’s resolution for myself yet, but lately I have heard a lot of new year’s resolutions from different people and the top three resolutions I’ve heard are:

1. Lose weight.

2. Quit Smoking or Drinking

3. Make their dreams happen.

These top new year’s resolutions are possible if committed well.

In other words, if you want to lose weight, you really need to stick to that plan. You can say it is easy to stick with the plan but in reality it s not. Trust me. I have tried many times last year.

Now, I am not some professional gym trainer  ,but If you want to lose weight you have to make it easy for yourself to stay committed because most people will promise,swear, and pray to lose weight and in the later year they would give up and gain back to their original weight. This point is also related to #2 and #3 from the list.

For the dreamers out there reading this blog, all I want to say is that you have to wake up and make it happen. Every dream is possible for everyone, including me.

I am a huge dreamer. I dream about becoming a great writer. I dream about writing a future New York’s Bestseller novel and I am alive and awake to make it happen. Are you? If not. Research some of your favorite celebrities and role models. Trust me,  you will be surprised of what all they had to do to make their dreams happen too.

Now that I have made my point, I hope this blog post helps you achieve your new year resolutions.
