Expect more diary posts

I think I’m FINALLY getting used to being at home all day, every day. My kalimba arrived and it’s really nice.

I don’t feel that lonely. I play games with my BFF almost every night and we also exercise and draw together. She recently got a drawing tablet. I wouldn’t be doing these three things as much if it weren’t for her, to be honest. (Everything is done virtually.)

I watch shows with my other friends. We’re also practicing the kalimba together since we ordered together. & of course, I have my family, online friends, and a few other close friends.

p.s. I have a penpal. In December 2019, I wrote a post called The Significance of the Letter. Did you know that I’ve published over 550 posts?

Photos I Took With My Phone

No edits or filters.

The sky picture was taken right outside where I live. I have two pots of these flowers. If anyone knows the flower name, please let me know. I believe we planted them (I have so many plants at home, it’s hard to keep track…).

Travel Diary: Bowen Island

I went to Bowen Island for a couple of days with two friends. It’s really close to Vancouver.

I felt stressed these past weeks and wanted a break from city life. Prior to the trip, I had not been on an overnight trip in several years and did not hike in a really long time. I am a homebody but it was relaxing and refreshing to be in nature. I felt peaceful.

I think that when you’re on the island, you are on an “island timezone.” What I mean by this is that there’s no rush and there’s not much need to check your phone. I wonder why I check my phone a lot more in the city- perhaps because a lot of people have the ‘need to be productive’ mindset?

Day 1

The view from the ferry.

The view from the top.

I would say that the highlight of the trip was stargazing. There is only one street light on the island. I had never seen so many stars before. They looked so big and I could see them clearly.

Day 2

The lighthouse and volcanic rocks.

I got my friends to watch The Untamed with me after our hikes. They became really invested in it, which was great. Hehehe.

Update: October 2019

All of these pictures were posted on my Instagram, but I thought I would post them in a blog format.

Beautiful Hydrangeas

What’s up, people?!

I’ve wanted a DSLR since I was around 17 when I started blogging and I finally bought one! I’m 22 years old now, and I guess I kind of forgot I wanted one until now…

These are the first photos I took with my Canon EOS 600D. These photos don’t have filters or anything. Hydrangeas are one of my favourite flowers. I fell in love with them after watching After the Rain.
