    Patterns and Paving the Way for MORE

    Good Evening Beauties and Beaus, I’m curious to know how your goals for this year are coming along?

I wish I can be my perfectionistic self and meet my goals quicker, but I murdered her during graduate school. This was necessary so I can have compassion for myself (lol fo real though!). I’ve been thinking about the term ‘goals’ today, and…

    One thing that got me through graduate school was going out to eat. I found it rewarding to complete a 50 hour work week and celebrate with my favorite food: SUSHI My friend Kent and I tried a new spot a city near Long Beach called Xtreme Sushi. I told Kent that I wanted to dress for the part. He found it funny, but was very impressed with what I came up with in only a few minutes. Check out the food and my style creation.
