Its been a hot minute hasn't it? I do apologise, but I've had a bit of a chillaxing and 'give something back to the body-and-mind temple' time this week...because, unless you do not read anything I write/moan about, I have had last year of university deadlines up to my eyeballs and now its all over!! No more deadlines for difficult university essays/thesis's/dissertations again, EVER! No more readings from the likes of theorist Chomsky, Baudrillard, Aristotle and Kant...who all aimed to make the future generations suffer through their works and thought process, no doubt. Now, I can choose to read who and what I like, for whatever reasons that pleases me, which as for now, is the magnificento Twilight Saga. Please do not get me started. Just know, I love and forever will...
But, all this free thinking time, has left me pondering what the next step is...whats the next move dudes? I know this may sound a bit stupid, but I feel too young for my backside to be kicked out into the big wide world! I'm only 20! I can't believe all the steps of the UK educational system has been completed, and after being in education for like 17 odd years, I now feel lost. Should I relax for a bit and then get serious, or should I get cracking now? Or should I try and find another part-time job, as my current work place has no over-time hours, and earn some money before I attempt to find more internships all over London town? I am back on board with the lovely ladies of M.I.S.S. Crew, but how about the rest of my free time! Should I like...get a hobby?? Maybe exercise? I just want to do something with my time which does not include spending the cashmonies I am trying to save up for my two upcoming holidays (I think I got a wee bit exited...) So many questions which all leaves me perplexed grrr!!
But enough of about my morbid thoughts on life and the like!
This is (one of) the LAST TIMES I will see the university library with my uni chicas! We couldn't have our lake party/picnic due to the lack of time...but it should be happening soon! No more deadlines, no more unwanted burdens. We will be coming for you jobs (Hi there...HIRE US), watch this space!
Before everyone thinks I was being an eager-beaver for wearing a dress to university, I did have a reason! It was my homegirl Sade's (aka Miss CoCo Pine) big 2-1 birthday celebrations on the same day! We went to a Mexican restaurant, which uses pork from Sussex and cheese from Lancashire, called Wahacca in Covent Garden. We had to wait forever for our table...like 1 and a half hours! I didn't even finish all my food because I had stomach pains, but we had a good time nonetheless. Some pictures for your observing eyes:
For once, a picture of Stephie-Pie and I together!! A rare sight on this blog indeed! Stephie found a book by Judy Blume called, 'Just as long as we are together', which focuses around two best friends called RACHEL & STEPHANIE who have know each other since 2nd grade! This is the exact same as me and Steph!! Odd huh?? If this is fate; our future already written through the words of Blume, Steph and I, must never befriend any chicks called Alison! Fate...or is it just plain coincidence due to our common names?!Last week, I received a surprising email from Shannon of Urban Start, which is an online street wear and lifestyle magazine and community, based in the Netherlands. Shannon informed me that they wrote a feature post on me! haha, I couldn't believe it! I'm really not that interesting. I seriously thought they didn't know who I was, even though I have been an avid reader for a very long time! There are a lot of 'OMG' comments, thanks guys ^_^! I really appreciate you putting my mug out in the Netherlands ;-D. As you might have guessed, my dutch, like my Cantonese, is rather sketchy, so I can't read, let alone understand, what the cool dudes wrote. Stephie, however, did manage to do a dodgy Internet translation which told me the article basically says,
Check the post here, and do not forget to check the rest of the website! Language should be no barrier when it comes to checking out fashion and great websites, you should know that! We should all learn from Hello Kitty, because she has no mouth because she speaks from the heart and is not bound by language ;-D haha!
On to the aforementioned M.I.S.S. Crew! You guys all know I am a contributor to this online magazine, and I thought I'd let you know about the new, revamped and drastically transformed website!
M.I.S.S. decided to celebrate its 3rd birthday with this makeover, and I love the new look! M.I.S.S. has gone for a much cleaner, more sophisticated and, dare I say it, mature look! They are normally associated with all that is fun, wacky, colourful and cool - all of which was reflected though the old website format. But, just because the in-ya-face funkness is gone, the inner M.I.S.S. flair is still evident through the posts, style of writing, content, and of course their famous, monthly featured 'Nails-Did to Match the Kicks' calender editorial. No one does nails as hot as M.I.S.S. does nails, check this month...DENIM nails?! Come on! CRAZZYYYY cool :-D:
Another reason to be excited for the M.I.S.S. make over is the new, easy to navigate website. It is now easier to find your favourite stories, as well as, simpler for Gabriella and Liz (editors and founders) to place prominence on special, stand-out and/or proud pieces from the M.I.S.S. archives! And finally...the long awaited CONTRIBUTORS PAGE! Its so nice to find out more about your fellow contributors, to put a face to the words written! Mine is up too...I wished I picked a different picture now, total dweeb:
Now guys, be a sweetie and check out the new goods! Show you love ^_^, click here!! Click it!
P.S. I just want to share my shame and disgust for Britain's Next Top Model...actually Britain's Next Top Glamour Model is more fitting. Why do I hate it so much?? Mainly because in the first four weeks of this sham of Tyra's show, they have only carried out photo shoots with lots of cleavage outfits, ED HARDY CATWALK (PUKKEE!!), kissing shots with both boys and girl-on-girl action and of course butt naked shoots. What is this?? Where is the high-fashion editorial 'smile with your eyes' photo shoots that ANTM and Tyra are so fond of??!! This is an embarrassment.
