Calm in the Chaos

Calm in the Chaos

After a productive day at my regular job, I was unusually energetic for my live graduate school class that I started this May. The first semester was coming to an end, and I was ready learn to some more Python and finish strong. Ten minutes into the class, instead of nodding along with my classmates on Zoom, I found myself lying on the floor next to my new kitten Celine, waiting for my wifi modem to reset for the 5th time.

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.

We had a photoshoot together in Santa Monica back in February that left both of us inspired. Social media can turn into…

Adventure is Out There

Adventure is Out There

                  I’m currently sitting 39,000 feet in the air, typing this into a word document instead of Wordpress because of the lack of fast internet (I’m still amazed there’s internet on planes at all). Somehow blogging feels fundamentally different if I’m not typing directly on the internet. I don’t tend to make impulsive decisions or step outside of the box much when it comes to major life choices. However, I’ve always had a bit of a whimsical side. I crave and chase after the feeling of spontaneity, freedom, romance… It’s not always…

Memorial Monday at LACMA

Memorial Monday at LACMA

Comfort, double denim, and the color yellow are a few of my favorite fashion things right now, and they are even better together than apart. I have had a couple of unusually social and spontaneous weekends in May, so it was important...
