dorm life

Here's a peek into my dorm at the University of Chicago for the 2009-2010 school year. Still getting organized/settled, but it's already feeling like home!

I stepped away from my suitcases as I was packing this morning only to find a little furry stowaway had hopped in.

Wayfarers Chapel

Last week I went on a day trip to Palos Verdes to visit the Wayfarer Chapel, which was designed by Lloyd Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright. It was a lovely day and the crystal clear sky was the perfect background for the glass structure.

The Chrisitan denomination that currently occupies the chapel, Swedenborgianism, provided plenty of laughs throughout the day (quite a mouthful). Little know fact--apparently Helen Keller was a Swedenborgian.

On our way home, we stopped for lunch in Gardenia. After filling up on delicious sushi from Kampachi and stocking up on Hi-Chew and Pocky at the Marukai across the street, we headed home.

bento egg molds

When I spotted Japanese bento egg molds at my local Korean market, I knew I had to try them out. Basically what you do is hard boil an egg, peel it while its still warm and then sandwich it inside the clamshell-like molds (which look like this). And ta-dah, you have a lovely rabbit shaped egg--so cute!
