How are you guys doing? I just have to say, I am so so so thankful for everyone's lovely comments and support! Thank you guys SO much!! I love visiting everyone's blogs and interacting with you guys so much :)
Today's post will be just one of those random life update posts. I apologize in advance for everything being kind of choppy and seemingly random because my thoughts are scattered all over the place. It's close to my bed time and the past few days have been quite long.
My life is pretty routine right now so I guess there isn't really that much to update haha. Literally pretty much everyday is the same--work, library/studying, run, sleep (and of course a ton of eating)--but I don't mind too much because it's pretty relaxing, except for studying *sobs*.
I never thought I would say this, but I actually enjoy running a lot! It's very relaxing and allows me to forget about stressful thoughts for a bit, even in terrible humid weather. I also get to see my friend since having a running buddy motivates both of you a LOT more so it's kind of my main social time. The route that we take is also really pretty because it's along a lake and there are lots of trees and plants.
Not surprisingly... food is probably one of the most exciting parts of my day haha. I seriously look forward to every meal and then I also enthusiastically plan my next.. =_='' Sorry if food pictures bore you.. but I have been eating a lot! Mostly it's with my co-workers because we all plan our social events around meals haha. We always eat lunch together and it's just a nice time to relax and socialize.
Today, my co-workers had planned to have a bbq and grill, as well as swim. At the beginning of the day, the sun was shining and it was seriously scorching. Just walking 10 minutes to the bus stop left me sweating like a pig >.<. We didn't mind too much because the eating area was under a roof so at least there was shade. We were also very excited to swim so the hot weather would be perfect. Well.... about half an hour into grilling, it started to downpour, A LOT. That didn't stop us from grilling though because one of my co-workers absolutely LOVES to grill and she just kept going under an umbrella. However, the temperature dropped about 10 degrees (Fahrenheit) and now we were shivering cold! =_=. We decided that it wouldn't stop us from going into the water though..and luckily the water was nice and warm. But swimming in torrential downpour and getting out of the water was a different story...
Despite the weather and slight discomfort, I was so happy to eat so much delicious food and spend time with some of my favorite people ^_^
In other news, I've been seriously considering purchasing a DSLR! I just absolutely LOVE how the pictures turn out and always oggle at DSLR pictures. I think it would also enhance the quality of my blog and reviews if I took better pictures. But I know they are extremely extremely pricey, so it is definitely an investment that I need to thoroughly research. I also know that I will be ridiculously busy once the school year starts and might not have any time to properly learn how to use it..but I will try my hardest to make time.
For those of you who do use a DSLR, which DSLR do you use and would you recommend it? I would greatly appreciate your feedback and/or advice for finding a DSLR!
My price range is about $500 USD (*sweat drops*), so it will most likely be a starter DSLR. I have been looking at compact and full size ones but I really don't know how to judge what is better or more suited towards my needs...so really, any advice will be taken into great consideration!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Let's all have a great week ^_^
