Damsel in this Dress

Internet, get ready to have your ears serenaded by the Best Excuse For Not Blogging In Such a Long Time. It's one you've never heard before:
I was busy!
Okay, okay, I'll retract my sarcasm.
Fortunately, it wasn't the oh-my-god-I-have-so-many-things-to-do-my-head-will-explode-where-do-I-start-life-is-so-stressful-is-it-worth-living? type of busy, rather it was the I-have-something-that-preoccupies-my-time-most-of-the-time-and-I-feel-busy-I-feel-great! kind of busy.


Pros and Cons of my university experience (thus far).

 *I would never actually skip a lecture (maybe)--too much of an Eager McBeaver! Note the terminology--PROF...and LECTURE!? Dang. ('Teacher' and 'class' last year).

Well there's just one...
As luck would have it, I lost my voice the first week of school, thus crippling my audio projections to the likes of a scratchy record. This meant that SEVERE qualities of an introvert, I adopted--and on the first week of school! This would explain, then, that in 3 days I've only managed to make 4 ACQUAINTANCES. Acquaintances!? Acquaintances. PLEASE PRAY I MAKE NEW FRIENDS, LOL.  (Oh my god, am I publicly admitting this!?) But thankfully, THANKFULLY, I have 3/6 of my highschool besties with me, phew!

**smooth transition to Outfit Post part**

Y'all saw the animated version of My First Day of University Outfit in my LAST POST--here's how it looked in real life! (Suck-quality photos...also pray that I acquire a DSLR camera soon!)

thats a fierce outfit for UBC! btw with the whole friends thing... most people i know dont actually make friends in uni. classes are too big and every semester u see somebody else so its hard. i only have 2 friends from uni and i'm in my 4 year and i go to a very small uni. since u were asking where i go, i am at kwantlen in richmond campus. but if u do want o have lucnh together i have my fridays off so i can always drop by ubc campus and have lunch and an improptu photo session for the blogs.
let me know when u're up for it.

UNI is 100x better than high school! High school was fun... but Uni is so much more fulfilling in terms of the things you learn and the people you meet.

I'm sure you'll make lots of new friends. Just be yourself and smile! =D

Eid Mubarak Urooba!

P.S. Purple suits you a lot ;)

Love the purple and the flowery dress with the motorcycle jacket.

I'm sure you will thrive and meet lots of interesting people in a university setting. It's a great opportunity to try new things--so take a fun elective course if you can! Plus your school probably has amazing facilities. (Mine had fencing classes and sculpture classes with welding.)

Looking forward to reading your continuing adventures!
