Tea Time

     When I sat down to write this post, I thought to myself, "Oh...I probably haven't posted in about a month or so." NOPE. It's been two months since I've sat down to write and reflect with you all. I am so sorry for that! Given this hiatus, I have a lot to update you guys on. We're already half way through fall semester, and let's just say this semester is a lot more difficult than the last. My classes primarily consist of papers; while this is more my speed than the awful multiple choice exams I had for Oceanography this summer, I think that papers are more stressful in that you have so much control over it. This usually means, for me at least, that I start my papers exceedingly too early and end up over-editing them. To combat the stresses of school, I've been doing adventures here and there off campus. One week this meant a painting class in Newport Beach, and another this meant avoiding subburn at Manhattan Beach. On this venture, my friend Morgan and I ventured to Pasadena, where we had some yummy tea and mini desserts. It was mostly an opportunity to put on some fancy dresses that we would otherwise not have occasion to wear. 

Aside from the hustle and bustle of school, I do not have too much to report! I'm really looking forward to returning home for Thanksgiving break. My French advisor told me how this semester would feel much longer than spring semester, and boy was she right. As much as I enjoy being at school, the veritable fall weather and my cute doggies are calling my name. I plan to come back with a photo story of the best of this semester thus far! Until then, I hope you all are doing well this October! xoxo Izzy

     Hello there! I am currently writing to you all from my lovely bedroom in New Jersey because I live on naps and have been home for the past week. Through some sort of miracle, I survived my third and final oceanography midterm-- in typical Isabelle fashion, I felt like I failed the test and that the world was ending but I did well in the end...classic. Since coming home, I've been basically using each meal as an opportunity to hang out with my various home friends and family. This week, my mom and I drove to New York and saw Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway with my sister. I've always loved New York and haven't been since last August, but I remarked the stark contrast between LA and New York during this visit. Going from LA, where you can prance about and drive for miles upon miles around to New York, where you're almost shoulder to shoulder with strangers, was the weirdest experience. Nonetheless, I was happily reunited with Aritzia and the insane guacamole from Dos Caminos. Holy YUM!!

     Unfortunately, I will be headed back to school tomorrow for work on Tuesday and sorority recruitment on Saturday. As much as I am excited to see my friends and live in the USC Village, I could really use a month off of school. My brain just has too much information regarding dunes and barnacles in it at the moment, haha. I can say confidently that I will never be enduring summer classes again. I will most likely be updating you guys next from LA; until then, I hope you all are enjoying your August! xoxo Isabelle 


Santa Barbara, Runyon Canyon, & Sorority Recruitment?!

Leave a Comment

       Hello friends! I'm back with a little photo diary, which always makes me yearn to be back on vacation. As you have seen on my Instagram (@lostbuntfound), I recently went to Santa Barbara with my mom to escape the LA insanity and find some peace. When I say that Santa Barbara a) looked like Europe and b) felt like a sort of oasis, I am far from kidding. The moment we got out of the car and stepped foot on our hotel grounds, I was instantly inspired by the beautiful scenery and tropical colors. The hotel itself constitutes the majority of these photos, aside from a few shots at the beach and in the historic old mission of Santa Barbara. I also wanted to include a photo from a hike I did at Runyon Canyon a few weeks ago with my childhood friend Elliot! It was so exciting to have someone from my little town in New Jersey out here in California. Aside from the fact that we took the "expert" path by accident, dodging cacti and (apparently) RATTLE SNAKES, we had a blast catching up and walking around West Hollywood. 

It's only four days until I am finally free of summer classes! To be honest, I never thought I would see this day, meaning that I wasn't sure I would make it through a total of 12 units of courses. But here I am! Only my third midterm and two more lab quizzes stand between me and a mini break before a jam packed fall semester... aka more insanity! Yahooo!! Plus, I'll be going through sorority recruitment this fall semester, so I need to get to outfit planning because there's only a a few weeks until rush. If you guys would like to see what I wear for rush, just let me know in a comment! Hope you all are enjoying the end of July. xoxo Isabelle
