My inspiration.

This is why I want to do medicine, honestly.

And if I do both medicine and dentistry eventually, which is my absolute aim in life, this is what I want to be doing. I want to volunteer in 3rd world countries and help transform people's lives. It's something I've always wanted to do, and I'll keep fighting for it. I swear I will.

I love r3hab.

Listening to his music gives me goosebumps.

Bounce (R3hab remix) - Calvin Harris & Kelis

Prutataaa (Original Mix) - Afrojack & R3hab

Ugh, there's a Dada Life remix of Prutataaa coming out but I've only managed to get the preview.

Yeah, fml.

Kimonos and stuff

So, after weeks of studying and the joy of utter disappointment over my results, I resorted to my usual activity - drowning my sorrows in a little retail therapy. The 'little' is, of course, a litote for the consumption of all the limited time I have before I really need to start knuckling down on all my uni work and making sure I don't lose any MORE unnecessary marks. A real wake up call, I tell you. Luckily it wasn't too harsh, but I'm still a little unsure of where I went wrong. I know I studied but probably not enough, hey.... but then it's surprising because I remember doing nothing else other than having my head in my books. Ahh well, nothing I can do about it now except wait for end of semester.

It's a little bit of a hassle since I know I could have done a lot better... and I've also lost 5% overall for each of the APs so... that HD isn't looking too good for me. In saying that, I know I'm a bit of a pessimist and I never fail to look at the half empty perspective of everything. It's also a personality flaw, but for the most part, I've put it to good use.

Back to the main focus of this post: I was stalking my friend (.. "friend", what a casual term to describe someone I haven't talked to once in 4 years) and she was wearing this absolutely gorgeous kimono jacket. It was graphite grey and only slightly floral and so beautiful. I started looking for it EVERYWHERE but I just couldn't find it. I think I wasted something like 3 hours just doing that. But yeah ok, sad story. I was on lookbook and I wanted to find something similar. The main candidates are H&M and Urban Outfitters but I just put in a massive order, so tough luck to me trying to order anything else online hey.

The first one is really elegant but I'm not sure I could pull off the whole maxi jacket thing because I'm short LOL. I like the colours though - bright but warm enough to wear every day and the design is nice. If I could combine the design of the first with the length/size of the second, I'd get it right this second. In saying that, I do like the hint of turquoise featured in the second.

But the one that really strikes me is the third. I love it and if I could find one identical to it, oh gawd my life would be absolutely complete. It's perfect and even though I'm only seeing a photo of it, I think I'm in love. The red is such a rich, blood-like colour and the sleeves are divine. Length is perfect - around dress-length and overall, it's my favourite. I'd buy it in literally every colour. Every. Colour. And yeah, it's just beautiful in every aspect.

If anyone sees anything remotely similar, I would be so eternally grateful. You have no idea.

And when I develop obsessions with things, it tends to stay for a while. I started liking high-waisted shorts a long, long time ago and my interest in them hasn't faded since then, just to give you an idea.
