End of Term Laziness + Photo Dump


I mentioned before that my term was about to end...turns out I underestimated things and I still have until May! My life till then is going to be all about research, papers, studying and practicing. Fried rice with anything left over in the fridge has been my savior on mornings with clinical as I'm trying to eat breakfast and lunch at the same time. Not eating regularly will usually dampen my mood but the extra hours of sunlight is helping a lot. I am at the point of the year where I am getting lazy with project365 though. Hopefully it's a slump that will go away once I have more time on my hands.

In blogging news, I renewed joanytang.com for another year. I was quiet hesitant to at first but if I let it go I risked losing my own name forever (other people convinced me of this, haha). This means I've been semi-regularly blogging at SOJOO for more than a year now! I've noticed several new followers and commenters lately and I just want to high five all you friendly people.

Springing Forward...(Project365 highlights)


Happy Spring! Here are some highlights:

  • Still super happy about flowers in my room. Pretty sure I'm slightly allergic but that's okay. :)
  • Sunflower seedlings are growing! I'm growing them by my window sill and I have to rotate the container every day so it doesn't grow sideways.
  • My daisy seedlings are growing too! The issue is I got impatient after 1 week of nothing so I planted a few more seeds in the same pot. You know, just in case. Now I have a mess of seedlings growing at variable rates.
  • I'm enjoying my newest lip balm. Live Clean lip balms are 100% natural which is reassuring since I probably eat most of it anyway (not on purpose of course!) 
  • A little Chinese-Korean place is where I've been visiting a lot this past year. They usually run out of their deep fried dumplings but I finally got a chance to try them. Yummmm
  • I randomly ordered a photobook from ArtsCow since they had a 99 cent promotion. 99 cents+Free Shipping. Seriously. It's an assortment of photos from 2013 that I quickly threw together. The book turned out well and exceeded my minimal expectations. I may order something else later! Perhaps a phone case?

Floral Fridays

With the price of a bouquet the same as a Starbucks frap, I opted for the flowers today. It is weird how much fun I can have with a bundle of flowers, a black piece of construction paper and window light? Not weird at all. My spring break is coming to a close now. Time to work super hard for the next month or so and finish the term strong. YES!

Happy Friday! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

The Elusive Green Thumb


As I was in the middle of a run it hit me, "hey, my ears aren't frozen and I still feel my face...could it be? has it gotten warmer?" It think it has! Time to begin new projects! With the new house, I have so much more space to learn how to grow things. Being born in a big city and moving into another big city, I have strictly been living in apartments or townhomes without any...well, dirt. This new house is like a whole new world with so many possibilities! The snow melted and I finally looked around the existing gardening space to see what was sprouting up. Interestingly enough, things are growing. I don't know what they are as they are just coming up but I don't think I'll dig them out just yet. There is the one stubborn leafy plant (can you tell my courses in Plant Biology doesn't help much in gardening?) that I do wish to take out or at least tame. It is in a current state of rotting, dying or barely alive and I don't know where to even begin chopping things off. The shots above come from my phone again - the plant doesn't look so bad if things are nicely cropped, hahaha.

I'm currently trying to germinate sunflower and daisy seeds. I never had much luck on flowers but I hope they work this year!

The name "sojoo" roots from "this is so Joany". Somehow in my convoluted thoughts, the name makes sense. On this blog you will find a collection of photos from my every day life. Hope you enjoy and stay for a little while.
