Out in the OC: Laguna Beach & Irvine

For the past two days I have been in the OC (Orange County), mostly stuff for school. Yesterday I went for an appointment/orientation thing I had to do to sign up for classes. It was mostly filled with running around like a chicken with it's head cut off because I was short on time and looking for the buildings I had to go to. I usually like to be hours ahead of time just in case something might happen, while my family thinks I'm insane for being that way...it would have helped in this case lol. I was at UCI from 1:30pm to 5:30pm (T_T)

By this time, LA traffic is at it's heaviest so we had to do something while we waited for traffic to die down. I begged my mom to take to Laguna Beach my heels were killing me and there was no way I could go walking around in a mall (also because I love going to the beach in the evenings lol), and after much convincing she gave in and we went :]

Soaked my sore feet in the cool ocean water

 Laguna Beach is my favorite beach because of how nice it is, and because there are not a lot of people. New Port Beach is usually filled with boats, while Huntington Beach is filled with people which makes it impossible to find parking or a spot on the beach.

For some reason people don't go to Laguna, maybe because of the snobby rich people but hey, the beach is gorgeous and I just ignore them (they don't do much anyways).


Afterwards, me and my mom drove around looking at houses in Laguna. So many beautiful and cute houses! My mom ended up deciding that she wanted to come back and rent a house for 2 days or stay at a hotel and take a little vacation as the whole family there. I agreed since I would be moving out soon to the uni and same with my older sister since she is getting married. We wanted to make a nice memory of the last time we will all be together :]


So that was yesterday, today me and my sister went back to UCI because me and my mom didn't get to do all the things I needed to do because the orientation was longer than expected. I decided to take a picture of my outfit because I really liked it :3

OUTFIT: Bohemian shirt from Forever 21, black boots from Wet Seal, shorts from Hollister, and feather earrings from my little sister's uni lol. Both the shorts and the earrings are actually my little sister's, I need to buy me some shorts and I have my own feather earring but they fell apart lol. So do not get feather earring from Forever 21!! haha

UPDATE ON ANGEL BITES: Ah btw, I finally gave in and took out my angel bites because my mom despised them so much. She said she regretted letting me get them, blah blah blah and since she hates seeing them on my face and says something every time she sees me I just took them off. Also because my dad got angry at her for letting me get them (which I think is the real reason why she wanted them out). I still have little holes from the piercings but they should be closing soon -.- I loved my babies while I had them, and I'm just lucky I even got them to begin with. RIP Angel Bites, you last around 5-6 months T-T

I'm still getting my tattoos though since they won't be on my face I can manage with letting her see those as little as possible or not at all. And I'm still stretching my ears even with my hair up my mom didn't notice. Hohoho I'm such a rebel haha not really.


Anyways, so we arrived at UCI around 10:30ish where we went to the Student Store and got some "UCI alumni" license plates for my older sister. Freakin' $35 for a license plate?? Pshh no thank you...lol. She is going to pay me back but I think that's way too much.

Anywho, we kinda messed around as you see my little sister pretending to pick her nose with a UCI finger. It says "zot" because our mascot is an anteater and apparently that's the sound it makes haha. Yes, an anteater mascot sounds lame, but there are some cute stuffed animals and I love our mascot Peter :3 haha. We also saw some cute shirts, I thought this Hello Kitty UCI shirt was too cute.

We ended up doing everything we needed to, dropping off my transcripts, visiting the financial aid office, the Study Abroad Center, and the dorms. And of course, as always~ we ended up going to Cha which brings and end to this entry.
