I was telling my friend about how I am embarassed that I am afflicted with what you might know as Asian Flush. The usual reaction to my complaints are, "IT'S CUTE/NORMAL/TOTALLY FINE". What people don't realise is that I will drink half a beer (I am not exaggerating) and my face will flush redder than the rose you wish you were given by the valentine you wish you had. His response was, "Oh, I wish I went red when I drank...it's like a useless race-specific super power".
I don't look the best in these photos because they were the last batch Vinh and I did, and I look a bit like a drenched rat because well, it was raining and I was tired.
Cardigan: Cotton On (heh.)
Skirt: Kid's thrifted tutu.
Grey blouse: Thrifted
Booties: Birthday gift

When I wore this outfit it attracted a few thousand confused and judging looks because:
1. Who wears a bright blue tutu on a grey day at university? Nobody.
2. It's an example of yet another case of "Jessica goes to a thrift store, browses in the children's section, forgets she is not the same size as she was when she was 7 and buys things that are too small for her". It's about the same length as a belt.
But it made me feel like a superhero, albeit a really skanky and attention-attracting superhero, but a superhero nonetheless. Sadly there were no kittens to rescue or maidens to woo on the day I wore this, though. The only good deed I did that day was making a conscious effort to not fall over and expose people to my underwear (which I wasn't very successful at doing).
Fleet Foxes' new album disappoints. I found what I thought was a download link to the leak and it was just Beyonce's 'Single Ladies 13 times over. THANKS, INTERNET. But it doesn't live up to their first album AT ALL.
The Tangled OST ON THE OTHER HAND!!! I must have a thing for Disney music because I am in love with this movie. It is the cutest thing, and I loved that as soon as the Princess opened her mouth to belt out a tune I knew straight away it was Mandy Moore. As well as singing 'When Will my Life Begin' every three seconds to whoever will listen (and everyone else who refuses to), I spent most of today rapping to Biggie Smalls, and singing everything from Mulan's 'I'll Make a Man Out of you' to Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles" in the middle of university with Genvin and Matt C. We know how to have fun.
Also, HELLO TO THE GIRL who approached me today and asked for a photo with me. What the hell, you were too lovely. Please send through the photo to me :) (firstname.lastname@example.org) Also hi to the girl who bumped into me while I was tipsy at UNSW Roundhouse. Awkward. It was really really lovely to meet you, I just suck at being social.
