Lost and Lonely (NY vs LA)
It’s officially been 8 months since I made the move to LA. Coming from the East coast, I’m inclined to make comparisons. When I first came here, being in a new environment made me feel lost and lonely at times. It was strange though- the lost and lonely I felt here in LA was different than the lost and lonely I felt in New York. The feeling…
STTA: Loving someone
Loving someone is really difficult and really scary. But I’m doing it and I’m learning so much (blogpost on what my rare specimen teaches me here) This is basically what it felt like getting into a relationship with him: I’m getting better at it with time. He’s helping me to trust more. You might have been disappointed, you might have been betrayed, you might have been…
First post of 2016
I’ve been thinking a lot about 2016 and the things I want to improve on this year. They’re not resolutions, rather, they’re things I’ve been working on for years now but hope to really solidify into my habits with renewed focus and commitment this year. Within my theme of Focus and Discipline, in 2016 I’d really like to focus on Creativity. I was listening to this podcast…
That kind of Woman
“You look posh” he said as he looked at the screen and showed me this photo. “Me, Posh?” I thought to myself. And there I was, caught off guard and caught in the moment. I barely recognize myself because I look so relaxed and comfortable with where I am. I’m just doing what I usually do- thinking- only this time it’s while staring off into the blue…
If a webpage doesn’t load, we hit the “try again” button until it loads. Why not hit that same “try again” button if something doesn’t work, in life?
Today was quite a strange day. Eventful, but strange. I’m at home now, recounting today’s activities and there seems to be the overarching message of kindness. I just had to blog to share with you.
The Power of Three
I’ve always liked the number three. Sure, two sounds balanced but three is more grounded, well rounded and stable. With two, it’s one or the other. This or that. Usually OR not AND. Good or bad. Right or wrong. Give me two things to choose from and I’ll say both. Give me three options and usually the best is saved for last. (Third time’s the charm,…
Whenever Thursday and Friday rolls around, I can’t help but be struck by a bit of nostalgia with all the “#TBT” (ThrowbackThursday) and “#FBF” (flashbackfriday) posts I see on instagram. Today I randomly thought of that time I was waiting for my friend to come meet me in front of the Forever 21 in Causeway bay, Hong Kong when I was visiting back in January….
On my Mind: my 20’s
It seems that I’m not the only one going through a period of transition. I’m only 21 and just beginning my 20’s, but I keep meeting people who are going through the same things, even years ahead of me, so I thought this passage (below the 2 images) was worthy of sharing. Worth the lengthy read:
On my mind: 2 H’s
Currently on my mind: Heart and Humanism. Thinking about how this plays in the work I do, the person I am, the life i want to lead. I realize it’s been quite some time since I’ve blogged (I’ll explain later) and it’s mainly because the two H’s: heart and humanism, have taken over the majority of my thought processes. Still figuring things out. Happy Monday!…
