A New Chapter Begins...

2:36 AM

Finally, I'm back on track! I obviously need to catch up, so I'll start by announcing I am officially unemployed- by choice, of course! My 2 months contract finished last March 1, and I didn't have the heart to renew one more time. Being a teacher for the first time in just a short span made me realize how I can never, ever, be a teacher again. I am too emotional to ever be a good one. My first batch of Korean students and friends left me last week. It was horrible. I couldn't believe it was over at first, but after some time I got over it. I still communicate with them most days, so it helped me get through rough times. I get emotionally attached to them, which is NOT advisable because when they leave, we all know the one being left gets more hurt than actually being the one leaving. I will write about my new found friends on my next blog post! Anyway, this whole experience is a blessing for me. I've met amazing people and had such great memories I will always cherish. On the bright side, I will be able to blog more often now! My future plans on employment? I will stay on queue until the end of April because I will be traveling with my family the entire summer. I will probably pursue my long time plan of enrolling myself to dress making. Speaking of that, check out the dress I made!!! I call this the "Modern Day Audrey". 
"I have this strange feeling that I am not myself anymore. It’s hard to put into words, but I guess it’s like I was fast asleep, and someone came, disassembled me, and hurriedly put me back together again. That sort of feeling." -Haruki Murakami
This velvet cut-out mullet dress was hand sewn by me. Perfect for going out on a dinner date, so I wore this on Valentines Day! ( A picture is shown on the last part, so keep scrolling ^_^ )
Neon green looks perfect on velvet black. That strange looking slim belt is actually the sling from my heart shaped bag! I needed a belt, so my bag volunteered. :) It looks better when used as purse, anyway.
My own rendition of Audrey Hepburn's signature look. What do you think?
What I Wore: Dress- made by me; Bag is a gift from Teacher Dhee; Neon skull earrings from downtown; Sunnies from L.A; Steve Madden booties
Thank you Dhee for this cutie pie slime bag!x

  3. Amazing outfit and style- I always wondered how teachers deal with so many students leaving every year, I for one am too emotional and get easy attached so I guess I would be in the same situation like you if I would choose to pursue this career.

    Great blog!

    Have an amazing week,
    Mary x
