photo meme, part 3

Why have I not seen the Girl Scouts around? Isn’t it GIRL SCOUT COOKIE TIME?!? They’re usually at the BART station attacking all the commuters during rush hour. Don’t they know I need my Thin Mints and Samoas? Technically I can’t eat either of those cookies right now because I gave up chocolate and candy for Lent. But I want to have them ready when Easter rolls around in a month. 😀

Sooo I just realized that I never finished up that photo meme I started, oh, about 3 months ago. !!! OOPS.

Here’s the last part!

My Kitchen requested by Kelly

My kitchen is pretty tiny and not too exciting. It has all the basics… fridge, oven, stove, microwave. Nothing out of the ordinary, really. The side I took the picture from has the sink and more counter space where we have a bunch of appliances crammed together, like the coffeemaker, rice cooker, and crockpot. I’m not sure why I didn’t take a picture of that side of the kitchen. It might have been messy and I was too lazy to clean. 😛 When I finally buy my own place, I would LOVE to have stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Not that I spend a lot of time in the kitchen… but a girl can dream.

Something Cool I See on My Commute requested by Reen

I honestly couldn’t think of anything “cool” that I see on my commute every day. It’s totally boring… I get to the BART station (which is in Oakland and there is absolutely nothing cool to see there), sit/stand on the train for 20 minutes until I arrive in San Francisco (I even fall asleep sometimes, hehe), climb up the stairs to street level and walk right into my building. So I decided to take a picture of the Starbucks I visit almost every day for my morning pick-me-up. It’s right across the street from my building and it is the *tiniest* Starbucks that I have ever seen. The employees have to kneel under the counter to get in and out of the store. Crazy! I kinda think this photo is a bit of a cop-out, though, so I’ll keep my eyes peeled for something fun on my commute that I may have missed.

TV Room requested by Kate

Ahhh, the TV room/living room. Probably the one place in my apartment where I spend the most time. Right now, we have this really awful navy blue IKEA couch. I think it fits 1.5 people comfortably and 2 people uncomfortably, lol. We actually started shopping this past weekend for a new couch. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we find one that’s soft and inviting but within our budget. Anyway, you’ll notice that I have a TON of little stuffed toys on top of the couch. 😀 I love them. I can’t help it. Plus, most of them were presents so I can’t put them in storage! Rob gave me the bear in the Lakers basketball jersey for Valentine’s Day 3 years ago so it means a lot to me.

Computer requested by Kate

And a photo of my whole desk:

My computer is a 4-year old Dell laptop that has served me very, very well. It’s pretty much running as well as it did when I first bought it. The only thing that’s wrong is that it sometimes doesn’t recognize music CDs. I have no idea why. All my DVDs play so I’m not sure what’s wrong with the drive. I’d love to upgrade to a newer, faster laptop but not so much that I can justify spending the money right now. I also took a picture of my desk area so you can see all the random stuff I have around me when I’m on the ‘net… a candle, my iPod Nano, Mini Cooper figurine, photos (even one of the dog I had growing up!), college graduation tassel, etc. Looking at the photo made me realize my desk is kinda messy. :/

So that’s it! Finally. 😀
