    Core Necessities

    14 June 2015

    The basic essentials I use or carry around with me on a daily basis.

    Have you ever been asked what you would take with you if your house was on fire? Well, here are some of the things I would grab before running out the door. Okay, maybe I wouldn’t take my lip balm but I sure as hell am not leaving my film cameras (also known as my babies) behind. I’d probably slip my Bleu de Chanel in my pocket too while I’m at it.

    This is just a post to let you all know I am still alive. I am well aware I haven’t blogged since late May and it’s because exam season is here. I have been cramming for torts non-stop and lord help me while I try to condense my 80+ pages of notes (60k+ words) into one single A4 sheet. The struggle is real. It’s currently 3:40 in the morning and I can hear my parents snoring. I’ll probably wake in 2 or 3 hours again to study for the whole day again. Where is this energy coming from and am I going delusional yet? I guess I’ll find out when I’ve rested myself and read through this post again; but until next time, enjoy these core essentials of mine.

    • I always love your attention to detail Jeffrey. Exams are always stressful and add a weight to the things you want to do. Coming from a fellow schoolmate; don’t apologize for not blogging. Life (exams) happen and readers understand. 🙂 Hopefully you can get through exams quickly! Good luck! <3

    • So crisp – I love a good flat lay.
