If this is all we’ll ever be, I’ll just take defeat — cause I know I’d rather be alone

By on August 30, 2017
Date nights in are always nice, and it’s a good way to mix things up from always going out. Lately, I’ve been a much more indoor person. I’ve been quite tired and when I have free time I want to get some R&R.
Tim and I decided to have a nice dinner in, where we would dress up, and have everything set up like we were eating somewhere with stars. We had a bread plate with grapes and prosciutto (should have had cheese, I know). For our meal, we had some pesto pasta with green beans, tomato, and a fried egg and file mignon.
He was surprised I made all of this or more surprised with how I set it up. Props to me!
But anyways, we ended up drinking wine from Bonny Doon (it’s a winery that’s in Santa Cruz). The decoration at the wine tasting room was really unique! They even had a spaceship (mainly due to one of their wine’s history)!  I remember liking Cig Alt E. when I was there for a tasting, but I don’t like it so much now.

My consistency has been lacking with this blog, but I haven’t given up on it yet! It’s been such a whirlwind this past month, but some updates:

-My apartment is finally completed and everything is furnished and decorated (Thank you so much, Tim!). I’ll do another post with images.
-I have a second project at work! It’s very different, but it’s nice to have two things to work on side-by-side.
-I have lost weight! I’m really glad I started DietBet’s Transformer Challenge. So far, I have lost almost 10 pounds (9ish).
-I have finally started working on grad school applications for master programs.
-The temperature here in Livermore has been so awful. It has been fuming hot, and it’s supposed to be worse over the weekend.
-The current news lately has been making me [insert adj]. In the mix of all that’s going on, I’m hoping Houston will make a rapid recovery (and that the relief bill will pass), but those affected by Hurricane Harvey need our help. NPR has narrowed some ways people can donate to help.  I agree that donating to the Red Cross is great, but your dollar can often go further with smaller organizations!

Let’s Meat

By on June 26, 2017

I started off this summer with my boyfriend’s graduation. His family came from Texas and SoCal to see him walk, so the leading days to his graduation we traveled with his family meeting old friends and doing some sight-seeing.

But the following week, I went to eat at House of Prime Rib! I don’t think I have eaten here for over a year or so. Every time there’s an occasion, I am out-of-town. Regardless, I never have had a disappointing dinner here. The past couple of years, this place has been really busy (not that it wasn’t busy before). The Food Network featured them, and then a huge fluctuation of people started coming. Before, I believe I could walk in and wait maybe 30~45 minutes. Now, I don’t think walking in is a wise decision.

House a Prime Rib is a classic staple in San Francisco. Though it is a nice restaurant, it has an inviting casual ambiance. I would definitely recommend going here if you’re in the city!

It’s my life. If I’m going to waste it, gonna waste it on you. It’s my life. If I’m gonna waste it — I’ll be wasted on you.

I’ve been listening to this song on repeat this past week.

It’s my life. If I’m going to waste it, gonna waste it on you. It’s my life. If I’m gonna waste it — I’ll be wasted on you. Look what you did to me. I tell myself if I’m gonna fall, it’ll be from high places even when it hurts. At least, we loved hard. Didn’t we, baby?” -Fletcher

I asked my boyfriend out on a date this previous Saturday (Saturday is usually our date day and we normally switch from planning. Sometimes.). I wanted this date to be a surprise, no special occasion, so the only thing I told him was to dress warmish and be ready at 4 PM for me to pick him up.

Note: This post lacks pictures because I didn’t take any. Whoops.
