Changes

Sometimes I wonder about change.

There are the changes that we can control and those that we cannot control. There are the changes that we want and need, and there are those that we rather not have. Sometimes we see change as a blessing but other times we see it as a curse.

I know change is necessary to grow and keep life moving and that sameness means death but…

If change/chaos/rebellion is the natural order, could stagnation/stillness be the real “rebellion”?

Just contemplating things…

Challenge

I have always taught of myself as someone who likes to learn about different cultures. Recently, I have noticed that I tend to incline myself to certain cultures and that I really don’t know much about them. So I decided to create this challenge in which I learn about one country a day. This way I learn a little more and whichever calls my attention I can learn even more.

Who wants to join? 🙂

Hello My Twenties (Birthday thoughts)

Disclaimer: I know the title is like the Korean drama (Hello my Twenties/Age of youth). Really good drama.

My birthday is here and there’s no use fighting it. Although it is almost done, I decided to accept it with grace. I’m not sure how to feel but I have decided to enter this new stage in my life. I will accept what my 20s bring me.

For this day I got my hair ready, painted my nails, dressed in what I felt was my nicest and comfortable clothing, put on some lipstick, and went out into the world.

I thought about what lies ahead in my life, and I thought how I will accept whatever challenges and goals come my way. I wish there was a way for me to keep these moments documented forever so that I can remember them as they are and how I felt. The only way is through my feelings, my heart, and my memories so I will make the most out of them and enjoy as much as I can.

I can say that I spent time and birthday wishes from those I consider dear. Their good energy made me have a happy birthday.

I hope that this is a time that as I get older I can look back and say, “Ah, the memories.”

I welcome you 20s – the age of youth.

Hello my 20s 🙂

 

Welcome and thank you :)

I finally did it.

I finally decided to create a blog for what seems like the 10th time… only this time I really did it. I can’t write how I feel, think, or even how much courage it took to do this. All I can manage to write is “thank you”.

I want to thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read this. I really appreciate it.

I can remember the first time I created a blog for it was the summer of my thirteenth year and I didn’t know much of anything. Truth be told, I still don’t know much but I believe that I know more than I did seven years ago (time flies!). I now have a clearer idea of what I want to write, create, do, and share.

I think that what got me into doing this is the idea that in a month I will be leaving my “teens” forever and will be entering my twenties. This thought is scary but exciting because new adventures will arise.

In the last couple of months, I have been thinking and contemplating almost all the time. I still don’t know what path I want to take but I have hopes that my reflections will allow me to gain a sense of direction as well as understand the world and myself a little better.

I will be sharing with you dear reader my everyday adventures and misadventures, my thoughts, my curiosities, my comics, and my stories and the stories of those who in one way or another have shaped me into becoming myself.

Originally, I was going to write a little background about myself such as name, place of birth, favorites, etc., but decided against it because I feel that doing so would take away from this experience. I will let you, reader and friend, discover these as I discover myself and those around me.

I want to thank you once again for stopping by and taking the time to read this. 🙂
