100 Days

Exactly 100 days until the big day!!  Time sure goes by quickly!  I remember thinking, "Oh I have all the time in the world! It's so far away!!"  Maybe not so much now >.<...

iPhone 5

A few weeks ago, Brian decided that we should buy a new laptop for me since mine was like almost 5 years old (<3 my Lenovo).  He wanted to get a Mac for me instead of a PC since I get the most random viruses.  Once, I got one super lame virus from listening on the Glee channel on  I didn't even know that was possible!!!  Anyways, the new retina display is so pretty though!  It is kind of worth the pain and suffering I went through trying to learn how to use the MacBook.  I still press CTRL C sometimes though...  

My old Samsung Fascinate phone was dying on me.  It would turn off out of the blue.  Sometimes it would even freeze when I was trying to answer a call, and it would keep on ringing until I dismantled my phone!  Brian couldn't really hear me either when I called him, especially when I put him on speaker phone.  However, Brian ordered us both iPhone 5's, and it just came last Friday... at least mine did!!  Poor Brian.  Verizon screwed up and sent his to California.  It had to be rerouted to Boston and arrived later than mine.  I must say 4G is wayyyyyyy faster than 3G.  This new phone is so nice, thin, and light.  I kind of miss swypo though because I text at such a slow speed now.  Two Apple products within a month.... does that make me an Apple converter?  >.<
Thanks dear!  You are the best!! <3

Pumpkin Spice Latte

I don't particularly enjoy drinking coffee because it almost gives me an instant headache and tummy ache.  SO... I am really excited about the return of Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte. It makes drinking coffee so much more enjoyable while studying renal pathophysiology, which apparently makes no sense to me yet it makes me sleepy at the same.  What a bad combo!!  However, it was just a tad too yummy, so I consumed it just a little too fast, giving me a huge caffeine high.  My forehead turned numb, and I felt a quite dazed.  Brian laughed when I told him, saying that I need to build up my caffeine tolerance. =*(
While drinking PSL, I couldn't help but sing "This is Halloween!  This is Halloween!!.... Everyone hail to the pumpkin song!"  ^_^

Summer Update

Mike, Jen, & Alyssa came to visit in June.  It's been awhile since we've seen them, but Alyssa has grown so much!  We went to the New England Aquarium & Fenway with them.  New England Aquarium was dark, gloomy, and old.  Nothing compared to the one in Long Beach or Monterey.
We made a quick trip to NYC to visit James & Alison before they left for Shanghai.  They are moving so far away =*(.  Also, we went to visit my cousin Tammi too who has just moved to NYC in May.  Wee for more people on the Least Coast... I mean East Coast!!
After my dreadful MBA summer classes ended, I went back to the Best Coast for almost 2 weeks to take care of wedding planning stuff.  It sure wasn't enough time!!  I had to carry all the invitations back to assemble them myself.  I should have stayed in California a few more days for some friendly free labor from Leanne or Calvin!  While here, I also stuffed myself silly with delicious food that is no where to be found in Boston.  Brian was quite jelly when he asked me each night what I was going to eat.  Poor Brian... he was stuck in Boston b/c of work!
Speaking of California, I miss Baloo!!  I kept on waking up early for the first couple of days there, so Baloo kind of got use to it.  When I started to adjust to PST, he kept on waking me up super early by whining and walking around.  Oh Baloo... you are so silly!!
Since I was in the OC a lot to meet with vendors, I had time to visit my adorable niece Zoey.  She cried when she saw me at first since I was a STRANGER DANGER to her, but after a few minutes, she warmed up to me.  She started to poke my face and constantly tried to tear off my glasses while giggling so much!  She cried when I left, which made me teary!  I don't think she'll recognize me when I go back home next time... Sadness!!
Back to Boston!  Brian & I went to another Red Sox game... thanks to Alex & Maggie's early wedding present.  It was so fun!!  Many good plays and home runs... except for when we got to the 6th or 7th ending.  Red Sox blew their 6 point lead in one inning...
Sorry for the delay, but as usual... Brian & I have such busy schedules.  I am writing this update while in a National Health Policy class.  Hiding in the back right now, so the professor can't see what I'm doing.  ^_^
