20 Random Thoughts of the Day

Without further ado…

  1. I learned that the plural of ‘beef’ is ‘beeves’! It’s even recognized by the Mirriam-Webster dictionary. Thanks, Buzzfeed.
  2. I missed World Zucchini Bread Day on April the 25. I love zucchini bread and had had that special day in my mind for quite a while. I’m sad that I missed it, and wonder why it isn’t in the summer when zucchini is actually in season.
  3. I’ve never had Eastern European food: Romanian, Slovenian, etc. Have you?
  4. Sometimes, I lose sight of why I write. Sometimes, I have no clue what TO write. Fortunately, there are so many (I repeat – SO many) writers who have created lists like this one (http://www.molly-greene.com/101-blog-topic-ideas/) to help people with blogger’s block.
  5. Do cheap, poor-quality sunglasses damage your vision? I’m not one to drop $39450 (okay, slight exaggeration) on a pair of expensive brand-name sunglasses, but I don’t want to risk deteriorating my vision.
  6. Do people actually use place mats and coasters?
  7. The Wei family is in the middle of planning our third Sunshine Coast vacation. This summer, the summer of 2017, we’ll likely be headed back to the beautiful Sunshine Coast of British Columbia with the Su family. I can’t wait for more trees, warm breezes, lakes, and birds. I think our annual trips are becoming a tradition. Do you have any beloved family traditions?
  8. Seline is studying law and economics next year. I know so little about law and economics, so I am looking forward to hearing all she has to say about the two courses next year.
  9. Speaking of Seline – she will be a senior next year. Grade 12. 18 years old. Applying to universities and scholarships. Whoa. She’s ready. I’m… not.
  10. Have I ever gone a day without nut butter?
  11. I hate recommending products, but the mint julep lip scrub from LUSH is my #1 favourite beauty/self-care product. It tastes like a chocolate-covered mint, makes my lips so soft, and is super easy to apply and remove. I don’t know what I did without it. Oh yeah. A washcloth.
  12. Zootopia is a Disney movie? I swear I thought it was Pixar!
  13. Fiji is the only non-European country that starts with an ‘F’.
  14. There is quite the hierarchy in the medical field and the world of medicine, something that I never truly took a moment to look at and analyze.
  15. Summer. Summer. Summer.
  16. Only one person in my family, my lovely mom, has a summer birthday. The rest of us, including grandparents and my aunt and uncle, are all born in late winter and early spring. No fall birthdays at all in the Wei family.
  17. I think this summer will be the first time that I try (as in, genuinely put an effort) into wearing sunscreen each and every day. Yay for UV protection.
  18. Why are pens from Japan so amazing? There is a store called Muji in Toronto that sells all kinds of minimalist Japanese home goods and stationery. I am obsessed with their pens and recently came home with TWELVE new pens. Well, five of them are highlighters. They write so beautifully. What are your favourite pen brands? Pentel? Bic? Or maybe you’re a Pilot fan?
  19. Will be writing my MCATS (medical school entrance exam) in less than 2.5 years. Exciting!
  20. This list totally beats my list. If Buzzfeed didn’t exist, I’d easily save a good hour each day.

  1. #3 … yes, yes I have. 🙂

    #6 Place mats … not in daily life, only for company and special holidays. Coasters … YES cause I have wooden coffee tables. Even my computer desk is wood, so I use a coaster for my drinks.

    #16 Immediate family – 2 in Aug, 1 in Sept, 1 in Oct, 1 in Feb and 1 in April. Pretty spread out
