This year has kind of flown by so far. In a whole 8 months, I've only really accomplished one of my achievements I set forth at the beginning of the year. I figured out, generally, what I want to do with my life. Which, as far as achievements go, that's a pretty significant one, I… Continue reading So Far So Good – Future Achievements Review
I have a friend who made the most beautiful comment on 2016 and the new year. I won't copy it word-for-word because it was a very personal comment loaded with personal things that were not written for me to repeat to the world. To paraphrase, 2016 was an interesting year filled with new experiences. Her… Continue reading Future Achievements of 2017
I always seem to write these posts around midnight. I was about to start a drawing when I decided instead to start writing, instead. And I always seem to write the framework, only to finish it a week later: I am now recovering from wisdom teeth removal (second day and I feel fine, no… Continue reading Last Year in Shiny, New Achievements; 6
Disclaimer: not always shiny, not always new. These past ...three months! have brought about a bunch of change. Firstly, even with my three month vacation into the world of third-year university, there are more of you following this blog! It's a strange feeling knowing that 31 people have decided your blog is worth the follow, but I am… Continue reading Last Term* in Shiny, New Things; 4
I may not be a toddler anymore, with crimped red hair falling just above my shoulders, and the top tied perfectly into a cute pony on the crown of my head; however, in many ways, I am still the same me that I was all these years past. There are many things that have not changed, but… Continue reading Love Who You Are; Page 4
Last night was a crazy night. Not that kind of crazy... Jeez. Firstly, I’d invited some of my friends to join me on my 5K Run on Mother’s Day, and they flat-out declined. I guess it’s not too enticing to run a random 5K on such short notice, for something you aren’t so passionate about. Later, my dad came… Continue reading Passion.
“April showers bring May flowers.” ie: The tears of a student during exam season are usually, but not limited to, downpours. These tears of pain, agony, studying and relief will hopefully bring beautiful gardens of acceptable grades in May. Indeed, April - and December - are always tough months for me. Those are my exam… Continue reading Love Who You Are; Page 3
I recently finished a little art project. ☺ Watercolour over India ink liners.
What a great way to start a journey: by loving yourself for who you are, right now. I figured after writing the midterm from hell about an hour ago, it would be a nice, necessary reprieve to think of the things I love about myself, this very moment, rather than think about the things… Continue reading Love Who You Are; page 1
A few months ago, I bought a book by M.H. Clark with illustrations by Jill Labieniec called Love who YOU ARE. I bought it for the designs, and then sort of fell for its writing - the poetry is fantastically inspiring and prompts some massive self-reflection. I've decided to use the lovely quotes as… Continue reading Love Who You Are
I figured out a way to reintroduce some old blogs I enjoy, while not simply reposting them. Instead, I'll have the chance to sort of do-over some terribly embarrassing posts.... <.< On that note, let us "throw back." Just shy of five months ago, I wrote a blog post about my point B, my bucket… Continue reading Point B (revised) | TBT Post
A very inspiring, and funny, TED Talks about emotional hygiene by Guy Winch. Mr Winch talks about an amazing perspective on the favouritism between physical and emotional health, and about specific subsets of emotional aspects that can help us to thrive. The more I try to elaborate on this video, the more it I find myself… Continue reading Emotional Hygiene, Explored
