wait for me

Hooray! Now that I don't have to eat everything through a teeny tiny tube, I can go around taking pictures of food without feeling bad! Missed a lot of good photo ops today, now that I think about it, but heck, I realized that I've developed a lot of habits that'll take some effort to break over the past five weeks!

I don't think I've blogged about it on here yet, but this Thursday marks six weeks since I've gotten upper jaw surgery + genioplasty. To be honest, recovery has been a lot harder than I thought it would be - mentally, not physically. Sure, I've lost weight, but that's probably from muscle loss since my body fat percentage isn't too noticeably different. I loaded up on calories from daily ice cream shakes with peanut butter and oreos - none of that low fat stuff! Those things pretty much kept me alive... living off thin soups and fruit juice is not fun, but I don't think I'll ever get sick of ice cream, peanut butter, or chocolate :Q Besides the obvious horrendous lack in variety of meal choices, though, not being able to talk really affected me negatively. I was always frustrated and impatient at not being to express myself (writing things down is a lot of work, time-consuming, and doesn't have the same effect). But! I went back to the hospital today and got unwired, so I'm ecstatic. Seems like I'm going to have more issues physically, though - it's kind of weird and hard to understand me some of the time, and I have to be careful because it hurts if I open too wide right now. And it actually takes a lot of effort to talk! Just let me go back to being a hermit lol.

Enough with the wall of text! Time to move on to the fun stuff. Good morning, smoggy LA.


shopping haul!

Someone needs to hide my wallet (not that there's much in there anymore anyway...) until I get a freaking job.

My excuse is that I got some really awesome deals.

Let's start off with the nail polish!


life through instagram

  1. The Amazing Spider-man in two words: Andrew Garfield. 'Nuff said.
  2. 4th of July @ my aunt's new house! Couldn't bare to look at any of the delicious food, so you get a picture of my aunt's cute Maltese, Peonie.
  3. Flowers delivered to my house from my orthodontist's office once they heard I'd gotten my jaw surgery! So sweet. My mom and I were disappointed that I didn't have a secret admirer.
  4. Sad attempt at galaxy nails.
  5. My first diy project complete! Studded high-waisted denim shorts - I love them!
  6. In the midst of studding. Thought the inside of my Levi's were so cool.
  7. Lamborghini on the road *_*
  8. Scrumptious fruit tarts from Porto's Bakery. I want one so bad.
  9. Two new Hello Kitty dolls to add to my collection! From my aunt and cousin as get-well-soon gifts.
