​I'm so tired that I'm not going to write anything long. I just felt like updating with some photos. The other weekend Khang were nice to take some photos of my outfits, and the same weekend we went hiking along a beach trail. I wouldn't recommend this one though, there were more climbing on actual rocks than going up a mountain. This last weekend Khang went to California, I was meant to go with him, I had even packed my bag, but Friday afternoon I got a very exciting call and yesterday I started my internship. Which I can talk more about later. 
Goodnight! x​

My weekends in September, besides from last one in the Hamptons, have been filled with school work and organizing Khang's apartment. So I wasn't thinking that I had done anything fun enough to write about, until I looked through my photos. A few weekends ago Khang and I drove out to Long Island for a day, we visited a park with some farm animals and drove to the beach. Another weekend we woke up to a foggy East river, so we decided to head out for a morning walk. Same weekend I believe we took the Roosevelt Island Tram over to Roosevelt Island. We strolled around the park and also checked out Cornell's campus. And we've also had brunch at my favorite brunch place The Smith on Upper East Side.
Tomorrow it's a Jewish holiday so I'm off from school. Unfortunately I have a lot of readings to do in my history class, luckily though summer is still very much here so I will probably just lay outside on our terrace.

Friday afternoon 11 of us headed out to the Hamptons for the weekend to celebrate both Sahas and Khang's birthdays. Sahas had rentet this awesome place for all of us to stay at. Over the weekend we cooked, had bbq's, went out for dinner, played games and relaxed at the pool. Khang and I also drove down to the East Hamptons beach. The beaches here are almost as good as Miami's, but the ocean is unfortunately way colder. 
It was a really fun weekend! And after coming back Sunday afternoon, Khang and I continued celebrating his birthday by first eating Vietnamese food in Chinatown, and then later cooking at home. 
Happy Birthday again my love!! xx

Happy Monday,
I got done with school at 1pm today, came home and finished my assignments. I'm soon about to head out to the grocery store, and afterwards I was thinking of asking Khang if he wanted to go to the rock climbing gym. 

Just before the weekend I received this beautiful watch from TRIWA, and yesterday Khang was kind enough to shoot some photos off it together with my new Theory top. I've been looking into selling my camera btw. I feel like it is about time to update. The one I have is about 5 years old, and I would also categorize it as a beginner camera. I've also decided it is time to leave Nikon for Canon.

Good evening,
I just came home from a lovely evening with my classmate Arin. We had dinner at Cipriani and then watched a movie at iPac. School started last week so all my friends from school are back in town. This coming week I'm actually looking forward to go to class and learn about my new courses. I've also finished a good amounts of books this summer and I was thinking of making a short summary of the ones I recommend and then post that here.

I've always loved fall fashion. Can't wait for it to be cool enough to wear suit pants again, but I'm also not a hundred percent ready to give up on summer yet. The other day I had some fun in Pinterest and Polypore, so I thought I might share some inspo photos that I saved. I would say it is pretty obvious that I am drawn to neutral colors and classic cuts.
The other day when Khang and I visited Suitsupply I told the sales rep after he had helped us pick out a suit for Khang that I wished they had womenswear too, and to my surprise they had just launched a whole women's collection. As for now they only have it down in Soho so Khang and I quickly headed downtown to check it out. It was pretty much like walking into my dream closet. I found the perfect fitting suit but they only had it in navy for now, definitely am more of a black person - to no surprise. Hopefully they will get it in black later this fall.

Good morning,
Heidi and I have Madeleine here over the weekend, so we're just about to get ready and head over to Brooklyn.  We're gonna have the greatest girls weekend exploring the city, eating brunches and maybe go to a rooftop bar or two.
​Last weekend we had another girls evening. Heidi and I invited Kolbrun, Ingunn and their friend for an evening on our terrace with wine and snacks, and Katie joined as well. Very lovely!

Last weekend was really fun. Thursday evening, I met up with Sal, Michael and a few other people at Rose bar. Sal has really become a good friend since I interned at his company last summer. Afterwards, I met up with Heidi and her friends at the rooftop bar Arlo. I believe it’s a pretty new place, and it has really good views of the city. On Friday I had dinner with Khang in Hell’s Kitchen before we met up with Kevin and Josie for a drink. Saturday morning, we had breakfast in Bryant Park, and in the evening we had dinner reservations at The Modern which is a two Michelin Star restaurant. We did an 8 course tasting menu that was unbelievable. Even the croutons just melted in my mouth. After eating for over four hours, we then headed downtown to Comedy Cellar to see some live comedy. Without knowing the lineup, one of my favorite comedian Aziz Ansari went on stage. I haven’t laughed that much in forever. Definitely need some more live comedy in my life. Sunday morning, myself, Khang, Kevin and Josie went to The Smith for breakfast before we took the ferry over to Williamsburg for some strolling and a visit to a beer factory. Later in the evening we went and saw the magic show ‘In & Of Itself’.

​On a completely different note; last week I did the Myers Briggs Personality test which resulted in the four letters INFJ. After reading about myself, I started sending the test around to friends and family to find out what they were. Flash forward, and now a week later I have probably read a year’s worth of psychology. It has revealed an awful lot about myself.

I’m like the antisocial humanitarian. Even though the 'i' stands for introvert I’ve always been very interested in people and forming relationships with them. Understanding people comes easy to me. I am very good at picking up on information through nonverbal cues, and whether I want it or not I absorb other people’s emotions. It comes natural to me to know a bunch of a person that they haven’t reveled. Maybe it’s because I’m just extremely understanding of other people’s emotions but more often than not do people want to share their life stories with me or they say things like ‘I’ve never told anyone this before'. I’ve learnt so much the last week about myself, my friends and how different human beings think, learns and makes decisions.

Here’s a link if you want to take the test:

Hello,
​Friday afternoon I started my weekend with meeting up with Michael at the UN. He did a little tour and then we had a glass of rose at a big terrace. Afterwards I met up with Khang at the movies to see 'The Big Sick'.
​Saturday we made homemade sushi, and in the afternoon we picked up a car and went downtown. First stop was at Seaport which is a super cute area, and later we headed over to Ikea in Brooklyn. After Ikea we decided to stay in Brooklyn, since we otherwise never spend time there. We drove to Prospect Park, had a walk around the lake, and then we happened to walk by a big jazz concert so we bought some ciders and sat down.
​Sunday I spent organizing at home, which I'm still not completely done with. Later today I have a ton of errands to take care of but before that I have a fun little project to work on for Rebecca.

I can't believe the month of August starts tomorrow. The last few days I've been working out in the rock climbing gym, the gym in the building, I've also been running in Central Park and been biking everywhere and nowhere. It's so easy getting around when you're using Citibike. The other day I biked downtown and then from there all the way to Upper East Side. The good thing about New York is that it's flat wherever you go. 
Besides that, Friday evening we went and saw 'Miss Saigon' on Broadway. Apparently very historically accurate, and oh so good, and what an ending. Goosebumps! 
Today Heidi and I are applying for scholarships; two are done so far. I'm also doing some research for master programs, I have one specific in mind but I need to sit down with my counselor to discuss if it is possible or not.
