One of the upsides to rainy days is perfectly diffused light that's perfect for taking pictures outside, so I took advantage, & I took some pictures of this dementor / tough Matrix look that I pieced together. I threw on a plain black tee (& I thought that it was too boring & plain, so I distressed it to give the whole ensemble a little touch), patent leather / "wet" black leggings, a long black cardigan, & my black & white Y-3 Yohji Boosts.
Summer's usually the time where I start to reminisce about my favorite trip & summer ever. Growing up, I've been lucky enough to travel to a lot of places, some of which people can only dream of going to, & out of the eleven states & eight countries that I've been to so far, my favorite trip & summer of all was during one particular year in high school. My grand-parents wanted to go back to Europe one more time since they're getting older, & they invited me to go with them. Both my workaholic mom & step-dad didn't want to go because they were planning their own separate trip abroad a couple of months later at the time, so it was just my grand-parents, my mom's brother / my uncle, & I. I was in Europe for a month & a half, & when I came back, I spent a week in LA, & then, a few days later, I met up with my friends in San Luis Obispo for my birthday where my parents let my friends & I stay at our town house right by the beach, & they let us have the town house all to ourselves. We spent two nights there, & then, we spent two nights at the Madonna Inn because we wanted to check it out, & it's now one of my favorite places to stay at because it's so stinkin' cute. I could've never said no. There are cherubs & angels everywhere, everything's boudoir & pink (think exactly like Jayne Mansfield's house), every room has different themes, there's a cute pink & blue tennis court, there's a cute little cafe & restaurant where you drink out of cute, different-colored chalices that you can buy & take home, & they serve some of the most delicious cake (my favorite's the "Pink Champagne" cake & the "Toffee Crunch" cake), there's a pink tennis court, etc. You guys have to go there sometime. It's so dreamy. <3
When I came back from southern California, my family & I went to Washington, Oregon, & Canada, & by the time I got back home from all of that traveling, it was already time for school again. The highlight of that whole entire summer though was obviously Europe, of course. Here are some pictures & a little bit about my experience in each of the countries that I visited in Europe that summer. We did a lot of shit there, but I'm not gonna include every little thing that we did & every little place that we went to. The slide shows are in order from which countries in Europe we went to first to last. We departed in LA, & we flew & started off at London, took a train to Paris, flew to Italy where we visited various cities there, flew to Madrid, flew back to London, & then, we flew back to LA. We stayed at each country for almost a week & a half.
I hope that you guys all have the opportunity to visit other states & countries one day. <3

My time in nursing school's almost coming to an end, & I'm so excited because I've been ball-&-chained to a stack of text-books, preparing for my NCLEX (which costs almost a rack just to take; $300, plus other additional fees & paper-work from school, etc.). I wouldn't have been able to do it without my family, my friends, my best friend, & my boyfriend. I remember when I'd go to the coffee shop to study with my friends sometimes, & Leo was helping me study my medical flash-cards one day, & then, Kevin told me to test Leo back for fun just to see how much he subconsciously memorized from helping me out, & he actually did pretty well, but then, he got one wrong, & he was like, "Ugh! I knew that one!" & I was like, "Who cares?! You don't even have to memorize them!" & Morgan was like, "I know, right? Hella stressed out for no reason." Lmfao.
I've also collected & noticed some little things through observations during my clinical rotations:
