What a whirlwind of events happening since I last blogged! After my hell week, it was pretty much me alleviating stress at the beginning of spring break, just to jump right back in throughout. The stress was just studying for GMAT, but let's focus on the de-stressing parts :)

I went to Shanghai Dumpling King in SF with Max on Saturday before DCON, where I got to try xiao long bao, lion head meatballs, tread bread, savory soy milk, spicy chive and pork dumplings, and decadent sugary goodness egg puff pastry! The place was packed! We waited a good hour before we were seated. They delayed our order, which set off our tummy's temper :T Supposedly, they dropped the order sheet on the ground, so our order never made it through. Grr. Food overall was pretty delish, though! I would like to go back, especially for the dumplings and egg puff pastry (in which, got awesome reviews on Yelp!)

Xiao Long Bao :D :D :D

On Tuesday, I spent the whole day with my best friend to celebrate her 22nd birthday. :) We went to Red Robin for lunch and Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Then we hit up BJs for drinks. On Thursday, I had dinner at Sushi Factory, an all-you-can-eat place, with the bestie, her boy, and my boy ;). We stuffed ourselves silly and made our ways to D&B's to play games and I guess, again, drink.
Happy Birthday, Love!

Finally, DCON. I was very pleased with everything! It was definitely a good, last DCON. The entertainment was superb, notably the dance (awesome DJ!) and the talent show acts. The theme tied in nicely with every aspect, from decorations to fundraisers to CNH Idol. This DCON has made me reflect on the huge impact Circle K has had on me. Circle K was more than just doing community service and feeling good about it. It gave me more: it made my college experience awesome, it blessed me with my closest friends at Cal, and most importantly, it shaped who I am today. <3
