I used to remember everything. Well, not *every*thing, I didn’t have a superpower, but I remembered a lot of details, dates, encounters… There were countless occasions where I would remember the exact date something happened, but would hesitate to say it out loud so I didn’t seem creepy. That’s not the case anymore, getting older is no joke! It’s not as easy to recall specific details and more instances where I would forget entire memories that I used to hold close. Yet perhaps counterintuitively, I feel like I can remember memories, sometimes pretty distant ones, more vividly than before. They…View Post
What a crazy time in the world. I’ve been saying that way too much but I don’t really have any other words to describe this sometimes. It seems like every day there is a new normal. I started working from my apartment in Los Angeles last week. Of course it takes some time to adapt to all the changes, but I have never felt more grateful for all the things I have. My personal problems seem minuscule now as I am overwhelmed with empathy for so many people struggling during this pandemic. While we may be confined at…View Post
Every trip is an escape from the everyday life. But perhaps because of the coldness or my tiredness after a sleepless red-eye flight, the four days I spent in Toronto felt particularly removed from reality in the best way. From coming up with the idea of going to Toronto to booking plane tickets, it only took my friend Koki and me a few hours to plan this trip. The fact that February is arguably the worst month to visit Toronto didn’t even cross our minds. Once it did, it did little to nothing to dampen the thrill from making an…View Post
I’ve caught a cold last week. It wasn’t until I scrambled through my medicine bag to find that all my cold medicine expired in 2016, that I realized I hadn’t gotten sick much in a few years. Whether physical or mental, I don’t always remember or appreciate my own strength. I know I am strong, but it takes discipline, reminders, and seeing myself succeed in specific tasks for me to remember that sometimes. When I was navigating Europe on my first long solo trip, I would sometimes literally say aloud to myself: “I can do anything”. I found the verbal…View Post
I'm not sure if love at first sight is real with people (I'm leaning towards no), but it's definitely real with boots. And fell in love with these white boots I definitely did. I put them together with two different outfits here. The first one is inspired by Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate. It's such a simple outfit but it left an impression on me since I saw the promotional materials for the movie. And I know it's not Halloween but any day is a good day..
“If you only knew how little I know about the things that matter” “What things that matter?” “You know what things.” Anyone who knows me would have spent some time hearing me talk about Call Me By Your Name. These quotes are from one of my favorite scenes in the movie, perhaps because it neatly sums up why I love it so much – it represents a lot of what matter the most to me. This summer, I lived out my dream of being in the world of the movie when I visited Northern Italy, walked the paths of Elio…View Post
