    Wow, life’s been crazy since the last time I wrote here (over two months ago!) And there’s lots of changes happening in my life, too. Changes to this online space You’ve probably already noticed the major change in this online space, it looks way different than it did a couple of weeks ago! That’s because […]

    Life Lately: Settling into My New Life in Oregon

    I’ll start this off by giving you a short summary of the last few years: This time four years ago, I was living in China. Three years ago, I was living in a lonely apartment in DC and in a long distance relationship. Two years ago, I was a new Canadian resident, living in a […]

    Life Lately: Heart Update & Life on the Road

    Although I’ve been posting lots of travel photos showing my life on the road, it’s been some time since my last “life lately.” In short: Life has been pretty grand lately. But, here’s what I’ve been up to, where my heart has been, and what’s next for me. 😊 I went to Nashville for a […]

  • 26 trips around the sun | 26 Things I’ve learned (so far)

    26 trips around the sun | 26 Things I’ve learned (so far)

    I woke up this morning and circled the sun for the 26th time. When I stop and really think about that, it’s hard to believe because I feel like I’ve been here for a lifetime longer and a lifetime shorter at the same time. And so much has happened in my life in the last […]

  • Life Lately: One month living on the road

    Life Lately: One month living on the road

    Remember when I first announced I was leaving my island home in Hawaii? Remember when I said my plan was to road trip across America? Well, it’s officially been one month since I’ve been living on the road, without a “home” and going somewhere new every day. I’ve been posting little travel diaries of each place […]

  • Life Lately: Two more weeks left in Hawaii

    Life Lately: Two more weeks left in Hawaii

    The title of this post makes me cringe. If you read my last life update, I had two MONTHS left in Hawaii. Time is really escaping me! It’s hilarious too, because I had this entire elaborate plan of posts to write, but I have no time to write them. I’ve been so, so busy lately. […]

    Life Lately: Two more months left in Hawaii!

    Life has been pretty busy and fast-paced lately, but it’s good. So, so good. If you read my last post, I’ve been here in Hawaii for 6 months now, which I still can’t grasp. Time FLIES. And it hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down. Here’s what life has been looking like lately. I had the […]

  • My path to happiness | International Day of Happiness

    My path to happiness | International Day of Happiness

    Today is International Day of Happiness, so naturally I’m writing about nothing other than my path to happiness. (Groundbreaking, I know) To say the last few months have been some of the longest, heart-wrenching, soul-breaking, anxiety-ridden months of my life, would be an understatement. However, they have also been some of the most influential, eye-opening, […]

  • What to do when you don’t know what to do

    What to do when you don’t know what to do

    Life is hard and confusing, and it comes at you from all angles and leaves you feeling tiny and lost. We have our lives planned out – school, work, family, bills, repeat. But what about when you’re in the in-between? What happens when you’re in the process of getting that job or getting into school or […]

    Life Lately: Crazy Hawaii weather, finding happiness + lots of changes

    My life lately has been anything but boring, bland or “routine.” Since coming back from my trip to Nevada and Arizona, I’ve made A LOT of changes in my life (and I’ve actually stuck to them!!) And when you’re reading this, I’ll be unpacking from my trip to San Diego! I’ve been so busy, that […]
