How I Handle Hard Times

I apologize for neglecting the site and for not posting as much fun content as I’d originally planned. Over the last few weeks, I received a string of bad news in various outlets of my life which decimated me emotionally. Essentially, my mind’s first reaction to challenging times is to shut down completely. Out goes…

The Hidden Art of Healing

Growing up, I was always deeply fascinated by the art of practicing medicine. I’d often sit cross-legged in front of the television and watch surgeries being performed for hours on end. This started at around the age of 3 or 4. What can I say? Kids are curious beings. Blood and human anatomy has never…

My Old High School Playlist

Every once in a while, I like to go back and revising my “high school” playlist, which is comprised of songs that played a huge part in defining those three formative¬†years in my life (2004-2007, I graduated early during my junior year).

Life Through the Camera Lens

During high school, I found myself growing enamored with the art of photography. At the age of 16, I received my first point-and-shoot camera for my birthday and thus, the journey began.

When I was 19, I lived in a small garlic-scented town 30 minutes away from Santa Cruz, California. Me and my now ex-boyfriend would frequently make trips to Santa Cruz and hang out in the downtown area. There, we’d always park at the same garage, and spend several hours walking up and down the quaint…

Why I’m Excited for the Nintendo Switch

I’ve seen a fair bit of salt across the internet in response to the Nintendo Switch Presentation and Treehouse Event. These critiques range from gripes about price, woes about lack of launch titles, all the way to hating the console and all it stands for. As an individual who houses a lot of unpopular opinions…

Switching Over to a Korean Beauty Regimen

I’ve begun to notice that an increased number of beauty bloggers have begun switching over to Korean beauty products and skin care routines. In the past, I’d adopted the western trend of matte everything along with contour, highlight, concealer everywhere… you name it. I think one of the reasons why I shied away from daily…
