Stanford

On my last day in San Fransisco (wuwuwuw), I went to Stanford with Angela.

Waiting for the bus.

Angela had a class that day so the initial plan was that I would go with her to school and explore the Stanford campus and try to network with Stanford men while she was in class and then after that we would go shopping wtf.

A peek at the Stanford campus which is gorgeous really.

But the minute I stepped into the building with her I wanted to go to class WTF *super geek mode

Haih seriously education is my weakness wtf. ย I complained about exams and papers and all that but I always knew that I would like studying (for the sake of studying) a lot more than working. And I was right wtf.

My lifelong ambition would be to go to grad school! Other lifelong dreams include being a Broadway star, marrying the Prince of Monaco, living to 100 years and other such useless ambitions.

Us in class! I have a book!

I meekly asked the professor if I could sit in the class for the day because I was really interested.

She looked surprised but said “Okay. I’m just worried you’ll be bored. ย Have you ever studied Classical Chinese?”

I don’t even know modern Chinese WTF but I decided not to tell her that.

So while everyone read out classical Chinese texts I just stared at the page and tried to pick out words I knew in kanji fml.

Which btw are not that many ๐Ÿ™

We chanced upon the statues of the Burghers of Calais. ย For more info, read above plaque.

Naturally I had to make full use of the photo opp they presented wtf.

I think I was trying to recreate the statue’s pose SIGH.

Settled for holding his arm wtf.

I thought he was doing the hip hop sign so I tried to follow WTF.

But maybe he was I dunno trying to brush away the noose from his face WTF =<

What I liked about Stanford was the very Spanish looking architecture. Very very different from Mount Holyoke which is all wood and brick and New England-ish looking. Angela thinks Moho is still prettier but I don’t know Stanford looks very warm. Which is actually is WTF compared to Moho -_-

The prettiest building there – the church ๐Ÿ˜€

Even the walkways are exquisite. And the whole Stanford looks like that /boo

When will we see each other again T3T

The very breathtaking inside.

Imagine getting married in a church such as this…

Unfortunately only Stanford students can get married here apparently.

The…nave? I don’t know church architecture terms sorry T_T In layman’s terms, the side of the church where people sit wtf.

Stained glass windows ๐Ÿ™‚

Did you know that Stanford is really called the Leland Stanford Junior University?

Stanford is named in honor of the Stanfords’ only child, who died in 1884 just before his 16th birthday. His parents decided to dedicate a university to their only son, and Leland Stanford told his wife, “The children of California shall be our children.” *weeps appropriately

The ceilings.

A closer look at the front.

Went outside and took more pictures of the facade.

Damn beautiful right!

Then we went to the Stanford Mall. It’s a gorgeous open concept mall that basically looks like a hotel. ย Sorry forgot to take pictures except for the roses planted around the shops ๐Ÿ™‚

Most WTF monument ever. ย Are those merfrogs lounging on the rocks -____________-

Why are there merfrogs! Why are they relaxing on rocks in the middle of a fountain at the mall! And why do they look so smug? Maybe I can submit this photo to Awkwardfamilyphotos.com wtf.

And then we had dinner and that was the end of San Fransisco T____________T

We went home and I blogged and watched movies while Angela prepared for her upcoming interview with questions such as “if you were a fruit what would you be” wtf.

Can’t remember if I talked about this other question which was: “if you didn’t exist in this world, what would be different?”

Thought about it and my self esteem dropped like a stone wtf. ย Seriously nothing would be different lor T3T Most is my parents won’t have a daughter and Ooib won’t have a sister wtf. ย Or maybe they will have another son or a different daughter. ย Or a daughter who is not this short *heart breaks

Then the next morning we had to get up at like 4 for me to go to the airport to fly to Wabash for Ooib’s graduation ;__________;

Too early, Angela probably too preoccupied with her interview and when I got my suitcase out of her car I accidentally scratched it WTF so our goodbye was not very emotional *shifty eyed

The car I scratched fml.

    FML..Stanford is so nice and the college I attended wasn’t even a campus ๐Ÿ™ (Asia Pacific University College – last time at Bangunan Hong Leong, KL)

    It’s like moving from one prison (SMSS)to another.

    College rules:
    1. No dialect
    2. No short skirts
    3. No colored hair

    How sad…

    Btw, any chance that you will increase your font size? ๐Ÿ˜›

    Cheers,
