Captain of the Nerd Herd (Battle of the Print Tees #2)

Hello sweeties! :D I am so excited because it is Thursday, my official "breathe" day of the week! This is the only weekday in which I get back anytime before 7 or 8 PM and can actually sleep at night instead of napping polyphasically and struggling awake at 4 or 5 AM to do my homework. I am one exhausted puppy. Silly me to think this semester would get comfortable and all settled in and chill. I suppose there's no rest for the weary, and definitely none for the tired Neuroscience premed, eh?

This may gross you out, but on Tuesday, I had Neurophysiology Lab again (9 AM - 6 PM) and we were working with frog sciatic nerves. These bullfrogs were HUGE and super hoppers that tried to break their jars. It was sad watching more and more of her disappear as we tried to dig around for its nerve in its leg and isolate it without overstretching and burning out fibers. I won't get into the nitty gritty details because you guys might feel sick and I might get too excited about neurons and expose my nerdiness some more. That surgery took about 4 hours and we were recording right up til the 9th hour. I believe the lab equipment exam was the hardest, most frantic thing I've ever spent 18 minutes on in my life. I was there for all 9 hours and only left for a 2 minute bathroom break, no lunch. Quotes of the day: "Gloves are for wussies" and "True scientists don't break for lunch."

I have a ton of outfits to show you guys that I haven't shot yet because of class and working until late hours when the sun has passed out for the night. Teasers: I'm bringing a little sexy back, Stroking my curly moustache, Couple Cardigans, some work-friendly clothes, and nanananananana-Batman! I hope you guys can't wait either : ) They're super fun! I will be shooting them this weekend between Physics death-cram sessions and catching up on all sorts of nonsense that has been piling up and being thrown on the baby-got-back-burner because other more pressing things have been in the way. I'm trying to get my life back on track (reminiscent of the derailed magnetic carts were flinging during Physics Lab today) because I'm overworked and overbooked in several compartments and need balance. By the way, totally digging the new Twitter except that I can't see my cursor as I update :o

This Battle of the Print Tees outfit #2: wear a printed tee with a cardigan and knee-high socks! I wore this last Friday, to class, to lab even (I know, scandalous!) ... which probably wasn't a great idea. Know at least I know that: 1) I can make it walking several miles a day across bumpy surfaces, mud, and rocks in wedges 2) Socks with wedges are a match made in heaven. These knee-highs are super soft and comfy and I got them for $2 USD at Target (way better than anything from F21). They actually stay up most of the time, but the back part sticks far above my heel because my feet are so small. One size fits all is the biggest lie I've ever heard. It's more like one size fits S-M, 5'6", and size 7 feet. sdfs I wore my Fifi Lapin shirt tucked into shorts and a long loose boyfriend cardigan to give it a perfect collegiate look. The big nerd glasses are for fun that I tried to return but F21 workers were being a B that day (that's right, I said it!) Last but not least the awesome shield ring I won from Suzy's giveaway - thank you so much sweetie ♥ I love it! Thank you also to Chin Lu of for helping me out and getting the prize switched to a size 5 to fit my tiny fingers. Suzy has an amazing fashion blog and always features amazing outfits - definitely visit her site and leave some love!

I'm really excited because we found another great place to shoot: right by my dorm building, which has lots of nice reflective windows that operate as mirrors for me to prep poses. There's a lot more people traffic though, but I'm trying to constantly get over my uncertainties while I shoot. My boyfriend is actually an amazing photographer if you can't tell and he took some great headshots: aperture priority, zoom in against some cool background and instant DSLR dupe photo! xD

 My real glasses don't reflect like this thankfully. From yours truly, nerd love ♥
This is my new favourite photo xD
Lookbook has an interesting photo editing site linked. This effect is "kaleidoscope" xD Wicked awesome!

Onward with the deluge of poses
Face shots (bf's photography skills of awesomeness). Yeah, I don't brush my hair or do anything to it - so what if I have a halo of frizz. It's the Angie signature look hahaha
Self-taken random shot?
I will be getting a Paypal soon. Does anyone want these? They're wayyy too big on my face, tags still attached
Estee Lauder in Autumn, my fave colour for fall
The beautiful Easter Egg ring :D It fits so well! My bf wants to use it as a knife guard when he's cutting vegetables lol
Thanks Suzy!
Thanks guys for all the cautionary "don't do it!" and the "yay for experimentations" on the cartilage piercing thing. Man you guys read closely. I'm still determined to do it either with my boyfriend's help or Claire's or a nicer piercing parlor but I probably have to wait until I have time to even sleep. Big physics exam next week and endless lab and research to tackle. No worries! I am a big protector of my ears and I will keep them healthy. I really hope to be super productive as well as super well-rested this weekend. On a happier note, guess whose nude pumps came in the mail? You're going to be seeing those babies a lot ; ) Have a great weekend lovelies!

P.S. Praise the TV gods for the return of Chuck, Glee, and others! Summer break-ups with TV shows was too painful to bear. Now when am I going to find time to watch all these? xD Tell me your favourite shows!

P.P.S. I finally made a Lookbook! Friend me, fan me, whatever. Same username: pandaphilia. Hype this look ♥

Oh I want to bust out my knee high socks now! I'm loving the outfit, so retro schoolgirl! LOL to your glasses, I want to try punching out the film out of my 3D glasses and see if it has the same effect.
The first face shot is amaaaazziing! WOW! Have you gotten your ear cartilage piercing yet?

You look like such a college kid now! (Which is a good thing lol) I always wonder where to get cute high socks that don't look like they belong on a soccer just teach me everything! :p

Your bf is seriously talented man! And those teasers are quite interesting...I can't wait to see what they're about! ^_^

I love the blood red nails!! :) Very fitting for a neuroscience premed gal :) Actually, what an awesome major!!! Performing surgeries seems pretty cool as well. I've always wanted to be in the medical field. If i can do it all over, I'd do that :) That and I watch too much House.

I love the outfit. The knee socks really match the top... its great!! :D

Speaking of OSFA.. just read an article that in a few years 3 in 4 Americans will be obese... so I wouldn't expect stores to start catering to little folks any time soon >__<

PetiteXXS September 26, 2010 at 5:07 AM   said...

I'm really digging the knee high socks! And I love your hair, it suits you!

Physics is probably the most worthless premed requirement ever (they're all pretty worthless though, especially O-Chem lol). That is, unless you go in to radiology or radiation oncology... but even then, it's pretty worthless as I remember close to zilch from college physics.
