Strut Your Stuff

Is there a permanent sign on my head that reads please help me?

Or do I just seem so helpless or incapable that people always feel compelled to do favours for me?
Any which way I'm so grateful- especially this year at school, at work, and on the streets, I've noticed that there's just so many giving/helping-people I'm constantly receiving actions and things and I just feel as if I'm always saying thank you... and because of that, I'm much more a receiver than a giver. I'm very capable, I assure you! Yes, I can hold my own bag, if I spill something, thanks for offering your scarf but I can clean it up myself, I can throw away my own garbage, I can open my own doors (though that is a nice, chilvarous gesture), I can get my own coat, and yes I can even fasten my own seatbelt. I'm surprisingly strong too! I can lift boxes and move my own furniture! Don't get me wrong - I love receiving but I'm just curious if it's partly because I look so incapable... because I'm not! Just don't ask me to open jar lids... I can't do that.

Another thing, if I don't have a smile on my face, do I really look that unhappy? I can't seem to have a normal non-smily look that looks like everything is fine without having people chorus, "what's wrong??" or "you OK?" or "how come you're not happy?" in a concerned tone. It's so weird because I feel completely fine! Even yesterday I was pouring water and a coworker was like "Natasha, why aren't you smiling??"........ I'm pouring WATER!!!

Went to Boss w/ a few Posh co-workers a couple nights ago. I quite like it there! I had a good time =)
Wore my strappy bcbg's and they didn't hurt my feet (yay) but I pretty much towered over all the girls and like 50% of the guys. Lots of Asians as expected. Hardly took any pics from my camera and what I took aren't the greatest -- gotta get the rest from their digis. It was sort of to celebrate Tina's birthday too -- she's off to Beijing for a couple weeks! I'm green.
omg Yunho are you trying to kill me?! Now this is what I consider to be the perfect body.
Anyway, gotta get ready for work!

We all take different paths in life but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere.

We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly - Anonymous

It's not about who you've known the longest, it's about who came and never left your side.

People put up walls not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down.

My boots -- I'm ready to take you on, snow!
It pretty much only goes w/ my puffer jacket...

A Quick One

Still, the worst semester in my life...

Anyway, ate @ Posh for din w/ B and M yesterday and ate @ Benkei Ramen w/ Nad today! Now I just need my sushi, Izakaya, Greek, and Korean food fill and I'm GOOD for a while.

Went to the NARS counter @ Holts to check out their lip gloss. My goodness, I think Holts can be my 2nd home! I just feel so comfortable when I'm there. The SA at the beauty counter (who reminded me several times that she has been with the brand for 7 years and is now coaching others how to be a makeup artist) was quite convincing so I ended up getting a lippy in Chihuahua. Was very tempted to buy a couple of other things such as their Illuminating stick in Cocucabana but I was good (does that mean an extra potato?).

Also finally got boots! They're black, quilted + leather Rockports (old lady brand). I now know what comfort is in a shoe. Phew - I'm not afraid to go outside anymore! Pictures to come tomorrow.

Aiii so much to doo!!! I just want to hole myself in my house for 3 days until I finish them.

I Wonder...

It's this type of weather that makes me want to snuggle up in my warmest fleece and plushest slippers and lounge around, staring out the window while sipping tea (in front of a fire).


My goodness, people are such fascinating little creatures.

One of my coworkers has the nicest eyebrow arch - it makes her look even 'gorgeous-er'.

Bought that tiered skirt from Club Monaco (from my last post)! Just for fun... my party skirt! Problem is, it doesn't look as cute on me at home as it did when I tried it on in store =(

A nonstop flight to Seoul (ICN) is 11 hours and 40 minutes. It only costs $1,015CDN! (Come visit me!)

Will I ever have black hair? Right now I'm thinking not...

Hair is so blah -- need a trim + re-dye but need to save.

Skin is horribly scaly! Yes, call me a Komodo Dragon... I need a good body scrub fast!

I really feel like watching a chick flick in the theatre...

I highly believe in toners! Mario Badescu doesn't ship to PO boxes!

I'm thinking of getting a few more piercings on my ear in the new year hmm

This new Spring/Summer platform trend is ugly. So Spice Girls and sooo 90's!

Hmm I wonder if you do too... I can imagine.
