Played 909 times

it’s been a long day, i’m absolutely aching

to lie down next to my girl / and tell her all about it

Suparb

so when the 110 page document dropped on Sunday i was horrified

and since then i have been battling my demons and trying to conquer it so that i will not look like a fool in front of my co-arbitrator

(i was up till 2 reading a paper about evidentiary norms in arbitration and i only got to page 44 of the handout)

but well well we met today and her prep was.. underlining the key terms in the Terms of Reference document

so right now she is copying out my prep while i am exploring KCL

WHAT A CHANGE what an amazing shift in culture ^__^

I AM STUDIOUS

Uniqlo Fits Short, Slim People … For Now
PRI reports that Uniqlo’s expansion into the US hasn’t been very successful, partly because Americans are having a difficult time fitting into clothes originally sized for the Japanese market. An excerpt: 

And Uniqlo’s US operations aren’t doing so well. They have more than 25 stores on both coasts and they’re collectively losing money for the company. One of their biggest challenges in breaking into the US mainstream market is sizing.
Yuya Tanahashi, Uniqlo’s Boston area manager, calls it an ongoing struggle for the brand. “We are actually analyzing every year about the fit,” he says. 
Basically, they’re checking sales data in each of their stores around the world, including here in Boston. “We’re going to try to find the best fit for the Boston customers as well by analyzing what items sell and what sizes sell,” Tanahashi says.
Uniqlo is looking into changing the sizes they offer in the US. In their words, they’re figuring out how to provide “a more ‘3D’ fit” for American shoppers.
So all those glorious form-flattering Smalls in the Boston store? They may not be small for long. But Tanahashi did offer me this: “We have kids line as well, and many adults actually purchase [clothes from the] kids line, meaning the boys and the girls style. So I would try to recommend the girls style as well.”

when i was 15 

and if i fell ill and needed to take a mid-day nap

i would play The Scientist from my mp3 at volume 1 and loop it till i fell asleep

i was tagged to share five facts about myself:

1. i am on exchange, orientation begins in 3 days, and i already have a 110-page document to read through (and a response paper to pen by the 1st of September)

2. i just had the most incredible fish stock noodles (then tau huay) courtesy of Renjie, who is really the consummate gentleman.

3. i really like Waitrose’s Ginger & Clementine hand soap

4. when i first came to London i slept at 12 and woke at 530 but now i can’t really sleep so i wake up at 8am instead

5. i am terrified of how quickly exchange will pass
