I've gone mad with plaid but at least summer is rad. Ha!

The summer of twenty ten has been phantasmagorical and sufficiently satisfying (thus far) because:
  • when post-graduating plans of traveling to Japan dissolve, as expected, a day trip to Harrison Hot Springs with your 6 BFF's masks any disappointment.
I can count. I realize there are only 3 in this photo. Shut up, conscience!
  • when one of said 6 BFF's decides to pursue her post-secondary education in India, a surprise farewell party will definitely put everyone in good spirit. And although you will miss her very very very much, you realize that she must leave. After all, becoming a doctor is something you can't tamper with. AND YOU DON'T FAIL TO FORGET: SKYPE!
Manmeet and I! I love you! I miss you already! Are you reading this!? I hope so!
Manmeet and I at grad. Looking all spiffy and whatnot.
  • when you traipse around UBC, emulating newbie highschool freshmen, you realize that you may actually start feeling excited about starting university come September. You may also actually BE A LITTLE OKAY WITH NOT GOING TO MCGILL (gasp). (Of course, realizing that there is a nude beach within five minutes of campus is certainly nothing to induce said excitement. duh).

Pretty, no!?

  • you watch Shakespear's 'Much Ado About Nothing' at Bard on the Beach with some cool people in tow. And find it TOTES HILARS. 

  • [and finally...] you're leaving for sunny California tomorrow! Yeehaw! 
♪♫ " I hopped off the plane at LAX
with a dream and my cardigan..." ♪♫ ♪♫ 
 So yeah. Summer's pretty swell. :)
 
**smooth transition to outfit post part**
 
This one's from the archives. I've been a very naughty fashion blogger and have not been taking 
outfit photos lately! 
Ooopsies.
Oh! Look at that modelly-ness! hah. no.
