Into The Wild

I do not know what I would do when I do not get one month of vacation anymore. That will be the first welcome to the real world, “Oh hey! You are not in college anymore. Get up and get ready for work!” Just thinking about it makes me want to go to school forever, even though I dread it most of the time. I am finally back from my one month hiatus from everything filled with responsibilities (work, school and life itself). It was relaxing, however, at some point I could have killed myself because I would just lay in the same position watching the same shows (NCIS, Criminal Minds, Law and Order: SVU and CSI: Miami). As you can tell, I love any type of cop/forensic shows.

Other than being lazy couch potato that I was, one highlight of my vacation was the annual snowboarding trip my friends and I have each year. Each year we go to a different mountain, somewhere new. This year we decided to head back to our beloved mountain in Maine, Sunday River. Although many prefer other mountains such as Killington or Stowe in Vermont. Sunday River have a good amount of peaks for our group and everyone was able to enjoy their time. I have developed my love for snowboarding probably around 2009. If someone asked how long have I been snowboarding, I would say two full years. Last year was when I finally learned how to carve and was able to catch up with the boys. Also, it was the year where I went snowboarding more than once compared to other years. Maybe that was the reason why I finally knew how to snowboard for once and do not look like a fool going down the mountain.

We finally found our niche, the right people to go with. The group of friends that are down to do things and gets along with everyone. This is the most successful snowboarding trip we have ever had! What’s so great about it is that, we all still keep in touch with one another even though the trip ended. Usually it would be “see you next year!” That would be the case previous years. I am glad we are able to spend time together outside the snowboarding trip.

秋思

You should be grateful for everything you have every single day of your life and not just in the month of November. The only thing I’ve seen the last couple weeks was red and Christmas. November is not even halfway, Thanksgiving is not even here yet and everywhere you go, you see Christmas in some advertisement. It makes me wonder what people think of the holiday season. Is it a season to just give gifts and be materialistic? Or why does it need to be some kind of holiday to be grateful for what you have? I’m grateful to be able to wake up every single day on a bed with a blanket over me. While there are many out there trying to keep warm sleeping outside TD Bank North or at some corner of a building. I’m grateful that I have food to eat and clothes to wear. Many of us take advantage of what was given to them and they don’t realize that there are people who is less fortunate. It’s a blessing to be alive. One of the many things I’m grateful for is friends who is willing to listen to me vent. I am grateful for this girl and many others that is in my life right now. Thank you for dealing with my randomness. Remember that not everyone is lucky enough to have friends who will listen to you and be there for you. Therefore, you should be thankful every single day of your life, not just for the month of November. I am all over the place in this post, that’s what red wine does to you.

“Shuushi” “autumnal melancholy”; a feeling of deep sadness associated with the autumn season. The sadness associated with seeing the leaves changing their colors, and beginning to fall – it means that the dark, cold months of winter are inching ever closer, day by day.

What can I say, I love coffee. The smell of coffee is addicting and the thought of a holding a warm cup of coffee warms up my belly. I love that you can do anything at a coffee shop. That’s the best part. Somehow, I think it brings people together. A shared love for coffee and the addictions that comes with it.

At Bourbon Coffee, I decided to do my homework and think about my decisions lately. We all make decisions we regret and as difficult as it sound, we need to admit to them. No one wants to admit they are wrong, but that is the part of growing up. You make mistakes and you learn. This week was full of mistakes. I do not regret it, I will learn from it.

Mini Resemblance

Do you have a little sister/niece/nephew/brother that you see yourself in them? Sometimes I think that Jasmine is my mini version. I used to be exactly like her when I was little. Instead of helping my mom clean when I was younger, I would run outside to play hopscotch or go upstairs to my neighbor’s house and play. You just want to be a kid and each day is a brand new adventure. She is just as adventurous as I am, I remembered when she was two. This little girl was the queen of climbing, she would climb everywhere high and low. I love that my niece love the outdoors more than playing her video games.

For as long as I could remember, I dived right into arts and crafts, painting, drawing and making things. My drawings started off as stick figures, square heads and now they look more realistic. As for Jasmine, she is so creative, you have no idea! She would make the coolest things, like cutting out rainbows and placing a triangle on the bottom of it. It just looks right. Somehow I would think her ideas are so mature that it scares me. I love the fact that no one taught her how to make certain things and she ends up creating it on her own. Sometimes her creativity caused her to get in trouble because she would leave trails of paper cutting everywhere. I remember being young and not care like that, but now as we grow older, we know better.

I feel like I am her second mother sometimes; babysitting, feeding, and taking her places An interesting fact: I named her. You know those books with baby names, somehow I stumbled upon names that begins with J and Jasmine caught my eye. The reason? Maybe because I love Jasmine in Aladdin or because the smell of Jasmine is lovely. Or because whoever is named Jasmine have a  strong, determined nature in them. Jasmine definitely have a strong natured in her. Now that she is six, she say the most adorable things, “I can’t wait to get older (referring to being seven), I will have long hair just like you.” This little girl really is me! I remember being young and hoping my mom would let me have long hair like my sisters. Instead I get the typical bowl haircut with the bangs.   Or sometimes she would say things similar to this, “Grandpa can’t go to the zoo with us because he doesn’t have enough monies.” 

I just hope that she enjoys being young than wishing to grow up. We long to be young again, I think that is one of many things children tend to forget and take for granted.

Herzschmerz

Many things occurred for a reason, you are still part of the family. It is difficult to meet such genuine people and you are exactly that.

That saying, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” If only everyone think like that, I barely talk about it to anyone because everyone have their own problems. There is no need to add more onto their plate. Instead, I hope and wish that one day we will be able to get through this obstacle and be happy again. It saddens me that we are going through this. Not only that but seeing the true characters of some people is horrifying.

What happened to “blood is thicker than water?” 

n. heartache, an emotional pain to the heart.
