Bare Minimum

I have been slacking like crazy on this blog, and I even failed to do an October favorites. Let me know if you're interested in seeing them anyways and maybe I'll do a quick post for that. For those of you who are close to me, you can physically see that these pictures were taken nearly a month ago. School has been very fast paced lately and I'm kind of enjoying every minute of it. I had a major crisis (pun intended) recently because I was not doing so hot in my physics class, coincidentally my major. I was really considering switching, but after an emotional talk with my wonderful professor, I realized that this is exactly what I want. I'm very passionate about physics and although it'll be very challenging, I believe in myself.

I've been challenged a lot this past month, with a lot of school work, as well as my new hobby: breakdancing. Yes, you've read right. This scrawny, girly asian girl has picked up breakdancing. It's one of the hardest things I've ever done, being physically straining and mentally tiring, I will never give up learning. My knees, elbows, and now shoulder, are covered in bruises, and sometimes it hurts to even walk up the stairs after a session, but I love it. I've never felt so free before. This new excitement is a wonderful feeling and I can't wait to see what I'm capable of.
Speaking of which, I was able to meet my inspiration, Victor Kim, last night when he came to Loyola. I briefly got to talk to him during the meet and greet, and it was so motivating to see what a down-to-earth and cool guy he is. He told me to keep practicing and doing what I love and I'm so ready to test myself.

More on the outfit! I decided to do a more minimal themed-outfit with this piece. The dress itself is already so pretty and intricately delicate that I thought that it was perfect enough. Normally, I enjoy loud prints and bold colors. However, there is a sweet and romantic feel in the color scheme that I absolutely adore and think it's perfect for fall.

This has been an incredibly long post! I'm done ranting about my feelings, and I hope you all have a wonderful second half of the semester. I promise to update soon!
