cut-out heart

I'm not really one for polka-dot dresses or heart-shaped cut-outs but after scouring through town with my sister trying to find a suitable interview outfit, we settled on this dress. I wore it with a blazer, pointy flats and nice little leather bag. I wanted to recreate the outfit but I didn't have the blazer or more accurately, I gave it back to my sister (hehe); and so I decided just to dress it down. 
Anyway, February is almost upon us and that means college starts again (... all too soon).

And in case you were wondering, the interview went pretty well; I came out feeling satisfied with my answers (although a few questions stumped me) but not gonna get my hopes up too high just in case. Fingers crossed!

after dark

Guys, I have an interview tomorrow for the JET programme - where you go to Japan for a year and work as an ALT (assistant language teacher). I've read so many differing opinions on the interview process, how they purposely try to throw you off, good cop bad cop style questions and overall, you leave feeling uncertain! I'm just gonna try my best to stay calm and enthusiastic despite whatever reactions they may or may not give. But just imagine me cracking a small joke only to find stony faces staring back at me. I'm sure they're lovely people though so just. gotta. stay. calm. Wish me luck!

On another note, my latest 'accomplishment' is reading After Dark by Haruki Murakami in 4 hours - it was that good! I really recommend it; it's different so definitely don't expect some huge action or climax. It has a subtle yet strong strength.
P.S. you might be happy to know that I've finally posted a song that's actually in English.

shadows

If you're following me on twitter, then you've probably witnessed my obscene ups and downs as regards exams! But that's all over and done with *dusts hands together*. It's weird, I didn't know what to do with myself today! But the day right after exams I was a cleaning goddess and spent all day tidying, cleaning, and dusting my room. The result: a beautiful, spotless room/haven. 

Oh and as for this outfit, I've been unashamedly living out of these leggings and my newly acquired large sweatshirt is a godsend.

HELLO 2015.

Happy New Year!! Now, one could say I'm a little late but I prefer to think of it as prolonging the excitement (heh). As for me, my NYE night was pretty tame, just stayed in with the family. The 1st of January proceeded just like the 2014 days before it...studying. Literally, that has become the theme of all my posts here! Exams are next week so I'm feeling the pressure but of course, does that mean hardcore study sessions? Nope. It means stuffing myself with new years leftovers, reading manga till the birds sing in the morning, prolonging the hour where I'll have to sleep, start a new day, and study. I'm thinking that my new year's resolution should be to stop ranting...but then that wouldn't be any fun (well, for me). But on a less-about-me note, I hope you're all having a great start to the year!

ERASE

So, that essay I was talking about in this post? Well, it's finished and now I've fallen into a slump of sleeping in, skipping lectures and constant lazy hair days. But tomorrow's Monday which means a fresh start! And speaking of fresh starts, my closet is in desperate need of one. What were once my favourite sweaters and tees are now dull and living a lonely existence on the upper clothes rack. They're in perfect condition though which makes me think I could sell them? You know, give them a better home. It's what they deserve.
