{How many days till our wedding}

Happy Thursday!
Today, here in Ames IA, the weather has been super cold... around 40 F!
It's a huge drop from last week, when it was still sunny and bearable!

I'm sitting in the library, on my way to finish off my HW... but before that, it crossed my mind that
There is only 7 months and 27 days to go until our wedding!
Oh my... time flies!

There are so many things I have to do...
Photos, slideshows, finding more and more ideas...
I have a new addiction now to kill time. (not that I need to actually, since I'm a student on my last semester and knowing the amount of work I have for school eeekkk)
I guess... every to-be-bride would do that right?
I mean... I'm obsessed!!! I could do it as a part-time job! Haha :D

I've been searching and browsing for wedding ideas. Although, my soon-to-be mother-in-law helps a lot back in Indonesia, I also would like to contribute somethings to her. So ideas.. ideas.. ideas are important :)
Been looking at The amazing Hannah Suh and Katie Stoops photographer.
I could also take the whole day just looking at these websites:
So far, they are my heroes for wedding inspirations. I'm sure I'll have more to come.

7 more months and 27 more days... not long to go.
I'm excited!!! I have so many ideas to do for a photoshoot with Andre!
When I do, I'll make sure to put some up :)

Have a great weekend! 1 more day and TGIF!

Days Like These

I have had a rough week with school.
As much as I studied, it felt like it's never enough...
Why is it that I never feel satisfied with what I've done?
I know it's not healthy... and I know I need to change this thought of mine.
Days like these that made me want to just close my eyes, close those textbook and just escape!

At least, I had a good weekend. I got to spend time with my fiance and his family, and I got to hang out and watched movies with our friends.
Someone very special in my life told me last night that made me realized and changed me.

"Realizing something wrong about you is a self-development, but not knowing what to do about it is an ignorance"

I need to stop comparing myself to other people because we are all born differently. With different ability and gift.
I need to start reminding myself it is okay to fail sometimes. Because I know that I will rise up and work harder to not fail the next time. For how hard that will be, I will remember that feeling, which will push me even harder.

I can do this! I know I can...
Have a good week everyone.

Weekends filled with him

I have the privilege to spend most of my weekends with my fiance, who lives 103 miles away from me. I don't own a car yet because there is just so many things I want to save up for (school tuition, rent, all other expenses)... so he usually is the one who drives back and forth to see me.

My fiance and I have been dating for 5+ years... and we recently just got engaged. He arranged a trip (and my first time) to the land of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Orlando, Florida. The hotel, where we stayed is super nice and I couldn't have been happier! He organized the whole thing from car rentals, a 4 hours spa at the hotel, where to go... I meant everything!
Don't worry... I kept all the little things that we got that moment as a keep sake... our memories :)

There is a lot of things I can write about him...
And don't get me wrong... I'm writing this not for the sake that "Geez... this girl is so cheesy that she writes about her fiance.. .and who wants to know that?"
I am doing this because I would like to share my joy with you.

I think it's amazing how someone can influence you to become a better person...
No body is perfect... but somehow his imperfections makes me smile more, laugh more, love more, think better, live more and better...

I'm writing this post to remind myself how grateful and blessed my life is to have him in it.
We are getting married next year... :) I hope everything is going to go well!
Have a good week!

What Could Be More

Look who decides to start writing again?

Yep, that's me! Today had been somewhat interesting I thought.

My morning was disturbed by the overdraft balance on my checking account. Luckily, I had the urge to check the internet banking... I got it under control.
Then, I had lunch with a friend, who has been treating me like her own daughter. Lunch at The Cafe has never failed.. It was lovely.

So my younger sister, who lived in Seattle decided to move in with me... in a small town called Ames. That is located in the state of Iowa. She's going to study Pre-Veterinarian. I'm so proud of her! Things change for the better... and I hope the same with her choices.
It feels so good to have her with me, I'm loving it.

5 more days before my last semester begins. I have mixed feeling during this time of the year. I'm excited yet at the same time I am sad. IT IS MY LAST SEMESTER and I shall feel excited!

I really really miss taking and editing photos. I probably will do it within these 5 days...
