Friday Five

Finally getting to break in my first pair of cowboy boots
that I asked Santa for this past Christmas
The past couple of weeks have been marked with a focus on preparing for final exams. We're officially down to the final two weeks of school, and my friends and I have started our tradition of studying in classrooms, which is more than a little nerve wracking. The final weeks of the semester brings the usual end of the year celebratory dinners and banquets for the organizations I am a part of (the Asian Law Student Organization, Journal, and Student Bar Association), and free dinners have been a plus. The fun will definitely be put on pause for the meantime, but there have been a few highlights. Most notably, I enjoyed my Easter long weekend, when my brother Kevin visited for brunch, and last weekend when my friends and I went to the opening night of a new bar in town.

I've been making more of an effort to capture those times when I'm out and about, rather than just focusing on clothing or beauty items. But I don't always have the opportunity to photograph in the open all the time, what with the hassle of lugging around a bulky DSLR. I really value taking high quality pictures, and that isn't always possible when I'm just hanging out with friends or exploring new parts of town. So, I often end up photographing a lot of material objects for these posts. Also, it's hard to capture those little moments that bring a smile to my face like getting a text from a friend about last minute dinner plans that gives me the motivation to power through school work, or receiving a message from a classmate asking me how I'm doing because I looked stressed in passing that morning. Those little gestures really are the moments that make my week. Below are a few of the other moments that have brought a smile to my face recently. Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

Going back to the Czech inspired brewery. I especially love the huge "Pivo" sign above the bar, which is Czech for beer

The taste, convenience and nutritional value of chocolate milk boxes make them a go-to for my daily breakfasts during the short drive to school (Essie 'Master Plan' and OPI 'Tickle My France-y')

My signature drink as of late (the unique presentation being part of the selling factor)
