​A few photos from Disney World

​Good evening,
​I have had a pretty good weekend so far. Friday night Heidi and I started our weekend by going to the rooftop bar PHD, and then to Marquee to meet up with my classmates. It was a fun night! Then Saturday and today we've been hanging out in the lounge downstairs. I got a lot of school work done so I'm pretty happy right now. The plan for the rest of the evening is; Ippudo and West World. Can't believe it is the last episode of the season already, and apparently there is not another season coming out until 2018. Horrible!

Hello,
My blog hasn't been much of a priority lately which is a shame since there's been a lot of fun things going on. Here's at least a bunch of photos from last week when Khang and I were in Miami. Last Sunday was my birthday and thanks to Thanksgiving we both had a few extra days off and what better way to celebrate, than flying down to Florida. First up was Miami and it was still pretty hot so we took the opportunity to hang out at our pool, and also at the beach. The (amazing) hotel Khang had booked were right at the beach. While Khang was crazy enough to actually jump into the ocean I didn't wanna step into anything else besides the hot tub.
I really liked Miami. We biked around all of South Beach and downtown, so I would say I got a pretty good feel of the city. I could definitely see myself living there. Good weather, good food and good vibes. A lot of people working out along the beach and not that much traffic.

Saturday morning we rented a car and drove up to Orlando. It was a pretty long drive with only a stop for lunch at a port. We didn't arrive until the evening.
After dinner we went by a place called Escapology. We got looked into a room, and with one clue leading to another we were supposed to find the key to get out. So much fun! I think it took us a little too long to realize there was a third room hiding behind book shelves, so if we would have had a little more time then maybe we could have figured it out. Definitely puts your brain to test. I am sad to say that Khang was the smarter one of us...

Sunday morning we started with a birthday picnic on the lake with all the things I like; Strawberries, Starbucks coffee, bagels and Khang. I wish all mornings could start that way. It's just something about eating outdoors, and also being on water. Afterwards we headed over to Disney World(!!!). A childhood dream come true. There was this one ride called Space Mountain where I died a little. I was placed at the very front then going off into complete darkness before realizing the whole ride was gonna be pitch black, the rollercoaster going very fast up, down and around and you can't see where it's going next. I've never been afraid of rollercoasters but in this one I sat with my arms around my head not knowing if I was gonna be the first one to crash into something haha. Loved it!

It was a great weekend! Haven't felt that relaxed, and truly happy, for awhile.

Two pictures from my camera roll. First one from a very nice apartment on the Upper West side, and second one from a rainy day at school.
Today it's all sunshine and I'm about to head over to my knitting class. We're done looking at weft knits and are now moving on to warp knits. Tonight I need to start packing. Our lease is signed and already this Saturday we're moving in.
The past weekend went by pretty fast. Friday night Khang and I had a date at Employees Only; the bar were we had our very first date. And Saturday we went out to dinner with Heidi and Sahas for some Greek food before going to the movies. We saw Doctor Strange which was good but a little bit too sci-fi for me.

Good morning,
I woke up to receive this amazing gift from Heidi. My birthday is not in another two weeks but this was very much needed right now. So happy!
Today I'm going to work on my portfolio. I need to get in to school to match my color story with pantone colors and I need to get down to the weaving lab to finish weaving my swatches. But before that I'm going to St. Patrick's Cathedral on 5th Avenue. Salvatore is part of Knights of Malta and he invited me to attend his knighting there today.

A few more minutes until we are most likely to find out who our next president is. This election has definitely been more than interesting and has brought up a lot of discussions both at home and in school. Can't wait to see the results even though I'm not gonna be happy with either or.
Well, this day has been good so far at least. Khang and I hit the gym early this morning, and then I walked over 30 flights of stairs up from the gym to our apartment.

Now I need to get back to the tv. Khang, Jae, Heidi and I are hanging out in our living room stuck in front of the tv.

Back to Monday with two classes; Textiles (Woven) and Business Writing - that's already done for today. In my Woven class we are starting a big handloom project, and in my writing class we are starting a group project doing a long report on a subject regarding school. After midterms projects usually starts, which this semester feels later than before. Someone said today that it is only 6 weeks left, what?
Anyhow, what I wanted to say was that I have the sweetest boyfriend, for the second time in a short period of time he has bought me flowers. Besides making me happy our room is now even prettier than before.

Good morning,
I can't believe it's already November. We at least finished off October in a good way with celebrating Halloween. Heidi and I also managed to go to the movies. We saw the new Bridget Jones film, and we loved it!
Today I have two classes, French and microeconomics, and then my weekend begins. We didn't have time for a road trip last weekend so we postponed it to this weekend instead.

The last week has been hectic. The midterms has just started. Two out of six got done this week and the rest is coming up.
I have realized that now when I don't blog as much my days kind of melts together, I barely remember what I have been doing lately. I do know that I have been studying, a lot, and it helps to have Heidi around. Even if we are not studying the same things it motivates me to have someone around that is in the same situation. I've also been to a few good restaurants lately. Khang and I had a date night last week at Koi. We were also out to dinner twice during the weekend with his friend Kevin that's been staying here for the last week. Saturday night we also went to a bar to catch up with some friends, and Sunday morning we spent brunching with some new friends.
This coming weekend we have a lot of plans. There's dinners, halloween parties, carving pumpkins, and a road trip coming up. But before that I need to get down to the gym before it gets late and tomorrow I need to start studying for my next midterm that's on Monday.

​I just got back from school. I have both my textiles classes on Wednesdays. Today I've spent hours in the knitting lab both knitting and weaving. We are just about to start our portfolios. First out is deciding for a theme and color scheme. I have a general idea of what I want but I need to find time to go by FIT Resource Center. It's one thing to go through WGSN, FashionSnoops and Doneger online but to actually sit down with the books in your hands is inspiration on a completely different level. Unfortunately it is strictly forbidden to take pictures, the books forecast S/S 2018 already and costs thousands of dollars.
Today I also spent some time at Blujacket's office. They needed some help for their Sample Sale. I haven't seen them since I left for Sweden this summer so it was good catching up.

Instead of driving out to a farm this weekend Khang and I went uptown to The Cloisters. A little museum owned by MET. Cute (photo) locations but not that many paintings or sculptures. We also spent time at Chelsea Piers playing golf. I managed to hit a few okay ones... And then we discovered Westworld - it's so good! I haven't been this excited about a series in years.
