There are a few things I keep forgetting to bring from home: card stock paper, winter jacket, scarves, slr camera.
I am thankful for the people around me who challenge me in ways that force me to act out of my comfort zone. I feel so blessed because I know that it is God working in me through these people. It encourages and motivates me to be a similar kind of vessel to others.
Feeling so, so blessed. Things have been hard lately, with med schools being silent on admissions decisions, and planning for alternatives, and thinking of all the uncertainties of the near future, but… I don’t know. I’ve been studying all week while trying to ward off this cold and juggling extracurriculars. Today of all days, I am reminded of the blessings in my life. So humbled. A daily habit in the making.
Today, for the first time ever, I thought about giving up. During these past 3 years, even in my lowest moments, even in the days until today, giving up wasn’t even an option.

Before I dive in to the updates, I would first like to thank all readers of this blog,subscribed and unsubscribed, for taking the time to visit Tea for Shoe and looking through the content I have published here. I really do appreciate every single…
I am thankful for my mama who packs me chocolate to keep me energized throughout the day and a blanket to keep me warm in the library.

I am thankful for my lab partners who make culturing cells a lot less boring and help make the hours go by faster with their goofiness (and for my P.I. for always being so patient with us even when we make mistakes and throw out the DNA…).
I am thankful for my handsome and beautiful friends who reach out to me and pray for me and provide comic relief during the unnecessarily serious times of my life.
I am thankful for my ever so supportive boyfriend who makes the hour long commute down to eat burgers and fries with me (and gives me his sweatshirt when I get cold, even if it means he has to be cold).
There is an explanation for this. Many months ago, when I would occasionally Instagram my outfits, the faintest idea of starting a virtual style diary did once pass through my mind. I let it go, of…
Just published the first post for my personal style blog. I’m sharing it on Tumblr first because I’m still shy, hehe. Please take a look at it and feel free to give any suggestions. First outfit post will be published tomorrow :)
Becoming more eager to expand my personal style. Try things that I’ve been scared of, add a variety of prints, textures, colors. Make mistakes and learn. Sometimes, I catch myself taking fashion a little too seriously. It should be fun, not a chore. Excited. :)
