The Simple Things

Today was interesting: in every little sense of the word. Everything about today sparked interest in me. After class I had to do an assignment for my Urban Planning class that required me to take different modes of transportation down the same street in downtown Portland. It was so cool to just let myself get lost in my senses: the sound of the street musician, the smell of the radiant spring, the sight of the scaling buildings disappearing into the sky . In our busy lives its important to remember that though they may be busy- they also may be very enjoyable. You don't always have to take a whole day off and go to the beach to notice the beauty that the earth possesses: its around you in every little thing and life is much more enjoyable if we learn to use our God given senses to notice the beautiful, intricate details that He fills our lives with. After school I joined my cousin Nina for a semi productive homework session at Savona. After which we got cruiser bikes from Beaches and rode down the waterfront trail to the Fort. I've gotta say, enjoying all of the little, simple things every day can be more rewarding and pleasant than just enjoying one big thing once in a blue moon. Learn to pay attention to the beauty that surrounds you.

In August I got diagnosed with an Autoimmune Disease which involved getting a diagnostic procedure and many trips to my specialist. I wasn't feeling very well for a good half a year until my medicine started to take affect and I could go back to my normal lifestyle. I am so grateful for the friends (Essi, Sok and Mary) who actively asked me how I was feeling and really encouraged me and showed me some real genuine love- thanks friends! Now that I'm feeling better and have more vigor to have a great year I will try to be more consistent with being present on my blog. So far 2018 has 2 main events, both of which are going to occur in May. First of all, my loyal and trusty friend of 25 years is getting married!!! I couldn't be happier for Kat and her boo Anton! I am so honored to be …


I guess SF is all the rage these days, I'm cool with that.
