And just like that (I felt like I had to start with these because of HBO’s season 2 of And Just Like That…), I officially ended my Bottega Era.
As soon as we decided that we’ll be going to Europe this year, I already began planning what bags to bring to the trip. I knew I’d go for those that are as discreet as possible, knowing how rife of pickpockets most areas in Rome and Paris (our major destinations) are.
I did not want to attract much attention, although I have not been using any bags with identifiable logos for quite some time. And so, I had Bottega Veneta in mind.
Inside the Colosseum in Rome, Italy. Yes, I carried two bags because I was extra. LOL
So it is that time of the year. Now, I have to face the comprehensive examinations.
I have been enrolled under residency for the past year, having decided that I’ll take a year off to have an idea what I wish to do with my thesis.
Since changing gears, I took my time traveling, which culminated with a vacation in Europe. But at the back of my mind, I knew that I had to eventually face schoolwork.
That time has finally arrived.
My personal promise was after the long-awaited vacation to Europe, I’d put my head back in the game. It was, however, too difficult to even think of my comprehensive exams and moreover, the thesis.
Translation: you are just lazy
So I went back watching Angela Duckworth and her grit Ted Talk on YouTube: and I ouch.
I had an unsettling feeling since last night. Even before the date changed, I had been thinking a lot of the following day.
It was my late grandmother’s birthday.
Little me back in the day with Nanay
So we have finally reached the end of this winter trip to Seoul.
We did not bother buying breakfast the night before, as we had decided to have breakfast at McDonald’s the following morning.
It rained for a bit, but it was only a couple of minutes before the sun shone again.
Good morning, Myeongdong!
Over breakfast, we were still planning what to do next so we can maximized the time before we checked out of the hotel, and continue our shopping again.
