I no longer want to embody the asian + female driver stereotype

So I've been practicing parallel parking quite a bit.  And watching youtube tutorials (yes I know, SHUUUSH)

Not being able to park parallel has made me a cripple in the city and this is why all these years I have been so scared to drive into town, along with the excuse that I'm horrible at orienting myself and remembering the streets.  A hobo once laughed at me while I was trying to do some parallel parking, I thought I really made his day but he definitely ruined mine with his uncontrollable laughter.  Bitch.

But I'm working on this handicap and I will learn to park like a normal person, so just watch!

Flying with Beibei...stay posted

After talking over the phone with different agents at Air France, I have bought a soft carrier bag for beibei (yes he will be joining me in this adventure, no one leaves beibei behind!!).  But now I'm really starting to doubt the dimensions...the agents have given me different numbers and after measuring each side I have become paranoid at the idea that my bag is too tall to be put under the cabin seat.  Luckily Air France has already been great on customer service, unlike Air Canada (worst food, large stewardesses who blocked the  aisles and can't help you with the overhead compartment.) (Outside of the plane I don't give a **** about your waist size, but come on, how can you be a stewardess if you can barely pass in the aisle?  What if there's an emergency? Or are you going to be my cushion?  I'm going to hell for this but it simply  makes no sense to me)

I now have to get my dog to familiarize with his new carrier...  he is no longer a sweet apartment pet because he's tasted too much of the freedom the countryside has to offer. It will be a hard task, so wish me luck!

You know you're old when

You realize this classic summer jam is 8 years old.   I wish there were a radio station playing old school jams all day!

Gwen Stefani is FLAWLESS :D

vente de garage coline de bine

I'm going crazy, how the heck will I be able to find someone to buy my piano , SELL MY CAR IN 3 WEEKS, find someone to take over my cell phone plan, ....FIT AN ENTIRE YEAR OF CLOTHES & SHOES in 23 kg???

Should I just throw my cellphone into my piano, place the piano in my spacious car and just make it a package deal??

65m2 de merveille

Il arrive que je trouve les espaces minimalistes trop froids et intimidants, mais ma dernière trouvaille sur l'architecte Tadao Ando m'a inspiré l'envie de vivre dans une maison de béton au lignes épurées (en bord de mer).

Cette maison de 65m2 se trouve à Kobe, au Japon, près d'un ancien site qui a connu un terrible tremblement de terre 1995.  

Je rêve de pouvoir acheter un abonnement de membre me permettant de plier bagages chaque semaine et habiter dans une maison différente... Oui je sais, ça serait comme être un itinérant hobo qui vit dans différents hôtels toute l'année. 

et une église conçue par Tadao Ando.  Vraiment un type brillant.  Dans ma prochaine vie je souhaiterai être architecte. Peut-être que je devrais commencer à me pratiquer sur Minecraft.

As I'm getting ready to embark on a new journey, I want to share with you today my biggest fear (relationship wise):  When Love Becomes A Draining Routine....   I don't care if you call my fears gay, it's friggin scary okay??

Obviously when you're in a long distance relationship routine is practically non-existent, but what if you jump from a 6000km LDR to living together 24/7 ?!! This is exactly what I wish for, yet, the idea of it causes me anxiety.  So I came up with a list of things that could help us never letting routine chords dull the melody of our romance(feel free to throw up), and instead seek variety in life together.
I suppose there is the good type of comforting routine (preparing breakfast together on weekends, or watching Game of Thrones every night)....

-Live in adjacent houses connected by underground tunnel. Tim Burton & Helena Bonham style.  Or if you're not rich enough to afford two houses, have 2 separate bedrooms and reconquer your sweetheart every night before inviting him/her to your bedroom.

-Meet at the restaurant, go separately instead of together! feels more like a date :)

-Have your own hobby/alone time 2-3 nights a week

-Never let the door open when you go to the bathroom. Put on some Star Wars music when you go #2

-Learn a new language together.

-Build a tree house together, or wood cabin somewhere. DIY love nest.  Non je vais jamais vous laisser tranquille avec mon obsession des cabanes dans les arbres.

See how short my list is, help me add to it!

I brought my dog to the vet today for his shots and microchip implant.  NOTHING in my life could have prepared me for this dreadful moment when the vet took out a BIG ASS NEEDLE containing the microchip and stabbed beibei with it.  omfg. and I'm not even scared of needles.

Beibei took it like a champion,two shots one after another.  Or he might secretly hate me for it!
