Living as Form

So…you may wonder why I'm on a bed of threads that probably weighs about 4 tonnes? The artist hid gold necklaces in biggie. No idea why I felt the temptation to dig through tangled threads for an hour.

My cousin and I were originally going to go into Brooklyn today to pick up something for my trip home on Wednesday (EEEEK, SUPER EXCITED!), but we realized that the trains going into Brooklyn actually run really defunct on the weekends, so we vetoed that. Instead, we got off at Delancey and walked around. Good thing our plans were cancelled because we stumbled upon this cool exhibition. We spent two hours there before we headed to dinner at The Meatball Shop. We were told that this place is pretty famous but the lineups are crazy long. We got there and asked how long it would take, and by luck, five minutes later, we were seated! I had spicy pork meatballs with a cream parmesan sauce over risotto and it was delicious!

here and there

Finally taking the time to gather some pictures I've been taking here and there from these few weeks. I really hate putting off blogging because I'm forced to upload so many pictures at the same time..The problems with this are: too many pictures to go through and edit, uploading so many pictures at once takes way too long, I can only choose one or two pictures from one very eventful day, I can't go into detail explaining why I chose the pictures I chose etc. After all, blogging is important to me because I need to occasionally look back and see what I've been doing. With my memory, I can barely remember what I had for breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, I've come to realize that breakfast foods have become a real staple for me. It's usually cereal, yoghurt, toast, fruits etc. all day. Especially with how busy school has been lately, unless it's leftovers from the night before, I'm usually just grabbing whatever I can to put into a tupperware so that I can quickly get out the door.

What we did during the hurricane: ate junk food and watched Project Runway (what we still sometimes do..)
Everything closed and prepped for the hurricane

Hopefully, I'll be more consistent in my blogging in the future.

Dressed in fashion for FNO in New York city

Finally got to experience FNO in New York city. Met up with my cousin today after class. Too bad we weren't able to go to more places, and there were too many lines for the stores. We ended the night sitting by the sidewalk, eating with a couple of beers, and people watching. And by "ending the night" I obviously mean: before we had to take the subway and hike home. In Toronto, walking for more than a couple of hours a day is insane. Here, two hours is the very least.
Have been a bit too busy to blog lately. School has been taking up almost 98% of my time. Working way into the early morning hours at home, and finishing up at school between 11:00 pm-2:00am. Thank goodness I will be dropping two courses this semester. I am currently way over my head. 

In the meantime,
