This time around, we visited the Museum of Modern Art. I was sooo impressed by all the paintings and sculptures. The best part was seeing "Starry Night", by Van Gogh. That is my absolute favorite painting ever, so I was super duper happy to see it! I even tried to do a Paint by Number once, it didn't turn out like the real thing though... jeje

Today I had a wonderful day eating sushi and ice cream! My boyfriend and I went out for dinner at our favorite sushi place which was delicious. Then we walked a few blocks to a street fair/party that is held every Friday.

These parties are so much fun because there is yummy food for sale and live music. I treated myself to a delicious ice cream cone! It was so much fun to eat my dessert while dancing to songs like "Hotel California" and "Sweet Home Alabama"... sometimes it's the simple moments in life that are the best :)

Today I discovered this new way of tying a scarf! I was sure I wanted to wear this scarf today because it included both the yellow of my top and the pop of teal from the purse; but I didn't want the scarf to cover the pretty details on my top... so what to do?
Aug 26 (8)
Well, tie it around your neck dozens of times and tie it as a bow of course! How didn't I think of this before?! jajaja. I actually really like this new way of tying scarves; I'll have to tie them like this more often :)

Have you ever tied your scarf like this before?

Comments:
Today was the last first day of school I will ever have as an undergraduate in college! jejeje, it feels weird to be growing up so fast! I can't believe this will be my last semester as an undergraduate student.
Aug 25 (8)
Since this will be my last semester living in the U.S., me and my boyfriend decided to take full advantage of the opportunities here. We plan on going on many fun adventures and trying different things in the area. In fact, I will be going somewhere fun this weekend! Stay tuned to see where that is :)

Is anyone else starting any type of classes this Fall semester?

Is it me or are the colors and lighting of these pictures just fabulous?! I'm always so so sooo happy when I manage to take pictures that look this bright and clear.
Aug 24 (9)
For some reason, I feel that the pictures I take in Panama (my home country) don't turn out as bright and colorful. I know it's not the photogropher because my mom is fabulous!.. Maybe the U.S. has the "good" sun and Panama has the "bad" sun... jaja who knows!

What do you think is the best time of the day to take pictures?

Where: Went to an office party

Comments:
I did sooo many things today without sleeping not one bit last night! Yes, that's right... I didn't sleep! The thing is that my second flight yesterday was canceled, so I had to stay awake all night waiting for a train this morning. After taking a train and a shuttle bus, I finally got home in the afternoon.
Aug 23 (10)
But after that, I couldn't sleep either because I had an office party I needed to attend to. After that, I still didn't sleep because I really needed to go to the supermarket and buy some food... Finally, I got home and managed to rest... talk about a long day huh?

Have you ever had one of those looong days because of traveling issues?
