the last first day of school

I had quite a busy day today! I decided at the last minute to take French IV which means that my Wednesdays now start at 8:30 am and end at 5 pm. It felt like I was running around all day going back and forth between classes and work, but the highlight of the day was going to the opening of the Hung Liu exhibit at the art museum. I didn't get any pictures [I really need to get into the habit of carrying my camera with me], but it was nice spending time with friends and enjoying the free food. And the art of course. :]

 All in all if first days are any indication of how the semester will go, I think me and this semester will get along just fine.

I'm back at school now, so I thought I'd post some more of the pictures that I took with the fancy camera before I left. Working on taking better pictures is a goal for 2013.

p.s. The black and white pictures on the corkboard were taken by my very talented friend JT. You can check out her blog here.

My mom got a fancy camera recently so I've been using it to take pictures of Minka. Even though she covers everything I own in cat hair, she's definitely one of the best things about being at home.

the cinema

I love going to the movies, and I thought it would be an interesting experiment to count how many movies I saw in the cinema in a year. I'm glad I did it, I think it's something I'll keep doing. It's nice to have a list that I can look back on and remember all those movie-going experiences. I was never one for saving ticket stubs anyway.

Here's the 2012 list:

1. Drive
2. 10 Things I Hate About You
3. A Separation
4. The Muppets

Happy New Year!

I haven't had this blog very long, but I've been awful about posting. This probably has something to do with the fact that I haven't told anyone about it, but still! That's no excuse. Which is one of my resolutions is to blog more often. I'm aiming for 4 times a week, it'll be a big step up from once every three months.

Tomorrow I'll upload my 2012 lists!
