The last few days has been pretty good. Finally you can feel the heat from the sun again. Sunday Khang and I celebrated with some ice-cream and a walk in Central Park. Monday I was off because of President's Day so we went to the rock climbing gym, and on Tuesday after school I headed downtown to volunteer with Sal and a bunch of people. We prepared sandwiches and handed them out to homeless people. Volunteering is great, it feels good doing something, definitely gonna try helping out more. 
Now it is time for me to get ready for bed, I have class at 9am tomorrow. Goodnight!

Good evening,
Today I'm not as happy as I look on the pictures. I woke up at 3am tonight with stomach pains that is still ongoing. Nothing helps. I basically just have to wait it out. Didn't help that I had to walk from Khang's to mine, took me about 50 minutes when it usually takes less than 30. At least the weather was beautiful, 15 degrees (60F) and sunshine. Tomorrow is looking even better, and next week is going up to almost 20 degrees!
Yesterday evening, before the pain started, Khang and I spent time at the rock climbing gym. Khang had been the sweetest and bought me a pair of rock climbing shoes earlier this week that arrived yesterday, and it was such an improvement climbing with them that we ended up staying for over three hours. I am finally at the level 5.10 which is no longer considerate beginner. To be fair the first levels go pretty fast to obtain while the levels after where I am at are gonna take longer. But as I have said in a previous post, progress is happiness, and so far it has been really fun to climb.
Tonight is the first evening in a long time that I am gonna spend with myself, Khang is upstate and Heidi had other plans​. My plan is to drink water and write a paper haha.. 
Hope you all had a good Saturday!​

Beautiful flowers I got from Khang on Valentines!

It's already Friday! I just got out of class, and now I'm about to meet up with Mahroo for lunch. Afterwards I'm going by Blujacket's office to say hi to my old coworkers, and later tonight Khang and I are going rock climbing and that's about it. A pretty good Friday.
Have a good weekend!

I just got home after seeing four different runway shows at Skylight this morning. So much fun! I had a lot people wanting to take photos of my outfit so hopefully I can get a hold of at least some of them. I also had to model a South Korean shoe brand, and in the exchange I got some really cool eyewear haha.
I'm about to eat some lunch and then head over to school for my economics class, and later tonight Khang and I are going rock climbing. We were there during the weekend as well, it's really fun and challenging. We were also trying out new restaurants during the weekend; Morimoto and Jean Georges - both extremely good.

Bonjour! Comment ca va ?
There's no school today because of the snowstorm. Instead I spent extra time in the gym this morning. I killed my arms, abs and then some running. I finally feel like I have time to workout a lot, and it makes me feel really good. I'm also at the point where I can do a headstand without the wall, which I'm really happy about. Progress is fun!   
And along with that, I finished the 'The 4-hour Workweek' by Tim Ferriss the other day. He had some good pointers but a lot of what he said wasn't applicable for me right now. Next up is Dale Carnegie and his well known book 'How to Win Friends and Influence People'. Very excited about this one since I've heard good things about it.  x

Good morning,
I've been up for two hours already but I still have a sleeping Khang next to me in bed. We actually went to bed pretty early yesterday so not sure how he could still wanna sleep.
This week was the first week back in school after winter break. Since I'm in my bachelor now and my department is pretty small I have the same classmates in my textiles classes as last semester. Therefore it was pretty fun to be back. Friday evening my classmates Arin and John invited Heidi and I out to Nobu 57 - a truly great restaurant. We drank espresso martinis, ate extremely good food and ended up being the last ones to leave the place.
Saturday was then spent with Khang going to his rock climbing gym, such a good workout for your arms. Today was supposed to been spent away from any sort of gym, but Khang's plans changed and I have now a whole day in front of me. I need to go down to Soho so I'm thinking of maybe dropping by and doing a boxing class. We'll see.
Khang is awake now so first up is breakfast and some Sunday cuddling.

I'm back in New York. Khang came to pick me up from the airport Saturday evening, and after a quick shower and some food we headed out to not one but two birthday celebrations. Sunday was then spent doing errands out in the sun, going on the scooter and eating Khang's ramen before I fell asleep at 9pm. Definitely prefer being jet lagged after flying west. Today I woke up at 5am. Now I'm back home about to get down to the gym. Haven't workout since before Sweden, besides running in the forest with mum.
Have a good Monday!

I've been back home now for a few days. So far I have had time to spend with my family. I've played board games with my siblings and I went to Stockholm with my mum. I found the most beautiful jacket and also a pair of boots I desperately needed. I'm just happy being home for a bit before next semester. There's only one more week of winter break.
Before going home I believe this was the most time I have spent in New York without having school. I was first worried of getting restless, but no, there's always things to do. Khang and I drove to New Jersey for a day of shopping, we also went twice to his rock climbing gym, we spent half a day of taking photos, we made homemade sushi, we went iceskating in Central Park, and we went down to Chinatown and I had hotpot for the first time. Just before I left we also had a date at Buddakan. Their espresso martinis were amazing! Heidi and I have also been hanging out a lot, mostly at home but we also went out with Walter and had a fun night. And not to forget the New Years we all celebrated together first at a private party in Greenwich Village and then at Lavo long after midnight.

It just went up to 18 Degrees Celsius today (65F). Wonderful! When the degrees goes up my mood goes up.
I received some bad news yesterday, and I'm not really the one who likes to talk about it, but it puts a lot of things in perspective. Life is too short not to live fully, and happily. Such a cliché but life is truly precious.

I have never been a big fan of making New Years resolutions. Fall often feels more like a new start than spring. I also continuously throughout the year make new goals for myself instead of saving it to the start of the next one. I say goals now because a resolution is simply only a promise of a change, while a goal is something you can work towards. I don't have any changes I want to do, if I had I would already have changed them. Although, I have a few goals right now, that are not specifically related to the new year, but that I thought could be fun to share.

"A" IN ALL MY CLASSES
I strive for a good GPA. Not only will it help me when applying for jobs, but it makes me feel good about myself.

READ/LISTEN TO MORE BOOKS
This is still on my list since my 'Summer List' I did in July. I have mentioned before that I listen to the Tim Ferriss podcast, and Tim has two books "4-Hour Workweek" and "Tools of Titans" that I want to read as soon as possible.

JOIN A CLUB
I want to be more active in school. There are currently three clubs that I am interested in. I'm gonna pick one of them.

SUMMER INTERNSHIP
I need to apply for Summer Internships. Typically me, I only have one I want to apply for and the competition is extremely high. I need to start looking for alternatives.
