July 2, 2013

in case you don't find what you're looking for

Am I the only one who rummages through salads to find croutons?

Taro ice cream cake from Breadtop!

Happy July everyone! 

Half a year has officially past. Can you imagine in exactly half a year we'd be celebrating new years and welcoming 2014?! I feel like I'm still living in the past. I have a 2012 calendar on my wall (still) and sometimes I actually catch myself writing 2012 instead of 2013 in my notebook, haha...(Ok I hope I'm not the only one that does this..) 

July is gonna be a month filled with uni open days... and the start of a deadly term. Only a couple of days of school holidays left and I am nowhere near ready for term 3. I'm not sure about you guys from other states (or countries!), but in qld, term 3 is the most important (and stressful) term of our entire twelve years of schooling because the results are weighted most heavily in a way. It's almost a make-or-break situation - if you do badly it'd affect your result quite heavily even if you managed to do well in previous terms. Okay I may or may not be exaggerating a little but still. 

Anyway (getting back on topic), on Saturday, we had a little family gathering/bbq to celebrate my little sister's birthday. She turned twelve. Officially a teenager next year, hahaha. Now I feel old turning seventeen in 2.5 months. I'm just getting used to being sixteen. :(

On a side note, I really really need to stop going on tumblr. It's literally taking over my life atm and if I continue doing this next term, I can wave my OP goodbye. (OP is the ranking system we use in qld which is used for university entrance purposes)


  1. The birthday cake looks freakin' yummy! Everything seems to be very delicious haha.
    Don't worry, you're not the only one who thinks like that, I used to deny being 18 now...feel so old ;)

  2. Holy moly that cake is beyond PERFECT, I mean
    look at the perfect streamlined layers! And
    haha, croutons are my favorite things in my
    salad as well c: Xx

  3. You're not the only one who writes 2012 instead of 2013, sometimes I catch myself doing it and even thinking it and it makes me want to whack myself in the head haha. It looks like your sister had a lovely birthday celebration, look at all the food *-* !! I know how you feel with all the uni work being done next term :( Are you excited?

  4. Ahh, I feel the same way. I have senior year soon and all te college stuff is really stressing me out! Don't worrry, we can stress together haha (; I felt the same about turning 17--16 is just such a nice age, isn't it?

    Mmmm, these photos make me so hungry! The food looks absolutely scrumptious and you did some stunning photography. Happy birthday to your sister!

  5. I second you while it comes to searching for croutons in a salad! :D I just love them!
    And all the best for your OP rank and studies :) It's gonna be a tough one! ;)
