US Winter National Swimming Championship

Wow... I'm not usually the type to gush over guys, but... professional swimmers have great bodies.
I mean, seriously... the girls are a little too muscular for my liking, but the guys are just... wow... haha. I went to the finals with B today, started babbling at the thought of meeting Ryan Lochte... only to discover he wasn't going today.
Serves me right for not doing my research^^ ahh well, it's all good, I'm planning on going tomorrow, I would love to see him swim!! And I wouldn't mind seeing Missy Franklin either!!
^B and me!! We waited in the line to meet some guy we didn't even know :O Haha... in the end, we didn't even get an autograph or picture with him.

Shades of Skin Dinner

Feeling pretty productive today~ I finished a lot of my homework yesterday, and so today I went out to eat with a group of friends.

Got a 100 on my last Chemistry quiz, an 82 on Biology test... which isn't very good, but I calculated my overall average since I'm done with Biology tests!! So far, I have a 92.4% on testing average... and since I have perfect score on my homework average, hopefully I'll do really well on the final exam and end up with an A in Biology^^

Tonight, the bestie and I went out to a presentation about racial discrimination and got free food from Bill Miller Bar-BQ~

^Brisket, dill pickles and marinated onions, potato salad, coleslaw!!

Turkey Week - Blasted Pictures!

^Jimmy John's Vito. The original Italian sub with genoa salami, provolone, capicola, onion, lettuce, tomato, and a real tasty Italian vinaigrette.

^Jimmy John's Vegetarian. Layers of provolone cheese separated by real avocado spread, alfalfa sprouts, sliced cucumber, lettuce, tomato, and mayo. (Truly a gourmet sub not for vegetarians only... peace dude!)

^Today I went out to eat lunch with my FIG friends at the Texas Union's Smokehouse BBQ... Ordered a chopped brisket sandwich with original sauce, onions on side, and potato salad - recommended by Nat :)

^Just a random photo from that night where they kidnapped me... and we ended up wandering in Dobie Mall, watching "Juanito" haha.

^Also from a while back... Breakfast with the boyfriend, at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf! I got a peppermint mocha, he had an iced tea latte.

So rich and foamy...

^Old photo, we were goofing around at Momoko's^^ Nat's coffee boba, my blueberry green tea boba, and B's mango yogurt boba!! And Lay photobombing us.

Akimatsuri - Japanese Fall Festival

Wow, today was so much fun^^ After Biology, Nat, Lay, B, and I went to eat at Jester. Then we went back to my dorm to play ping-pong, which was quite exhilarating!! I haven't felt this challenged in a while...

Later, B told me about a Japanese gift store, and we all decided to walk there together, seeing as it was right on the way to Lay's house. We walked there, I got a Peach Boba Tea with Yogurt base, yumyum~

^Nat and Lay skipping in the back/foreground (?) haha.
We went to Lay's house, where he made us watch some inappropriate videos... haha... so perverted, B and I were getting uncomfortable, but ehh, whatever. We left around 4PM, and B and I arranged to meet up for the Japanese Fall Festival around 7PM that night.

^Me and B at Akimatsuri!! She's definitely more Asian than I am...

^The bestie and me!! I'm so glad she decided to tag along^^
 Then, because nobody had warned us that you needed to buy a ticket in order to get the food provided at the festival and we hadn't brought our wallets, we went to eat Japanese food at Oishi's instead - half price off sushi during Happy Hour!! We were happy indeed.

^B ordered the Spider Roll. Fried soft shell crab, avocado, cucumber and topped with combination sauce.

^Dragon ordered the Philadelphia. Smoked salmon, cream cheese, avocado and cucumber.

^I ordered the Longhorn Roll, which was surprisingly one of the cheapest selections... but I hadn't expected it to be so... fried... haha. B and Dragon ended up eating half for me. Crabmeat, avocado and cream cheese fried in tempura batter with oishi sauce.

That was a great night. I haven't had so much fun in a long time... so relieved.

OH, and by the way - I got a 90 on the Chemistry quiz, even though the class average is 67. Feeling good~~ but keeping it to myself because I don't want to get too snarky... haha...

Vegetarian Focus Dinner

Sorry, it's been a while since I've updated; been busy with school and midterms. Last night, I got free dining at J2 (not to mention another free tshirt, haha), and overall, it was pretty cool, the dinner was not bad either!

^Southwest Veggie Wrap!!

^Blurry picture... because the guy did NOT know how to take a picture... haha, well, whatever.
