Pumpkins & Pipeline

Pumpkins & Pipeline

  Just like home in Southern California, Hawai’i does not have much in terms of seasons. I usually joke around with people, saying the only way you really now the seasons have changed, is when the flavors at Starbucks have changed. With Fall being my favorite season of all, and living where the leaves stay green all year round, I was craving some Autumn-like activities. So Matt and I set out on a Sunday and did a little Aloha-style October…

Fly High

Fly High

Mr. Ralph Waldo Emerson said the above quote back in the 1800’s. He sure was a man of his time, a pioneer to free thinking and going against the routine grain. I would love to think that I too go against the grain of day to day life, but i’m not convinced that I am there quite yet.

Why I Moved Over 2,000 Miles Away (Twice)

It was a month after my 18th birthday, and it was a moment I had dreamt about for years.  I was going to be flying over an ocean for over 6 hours to my new home. It was going to be a blank slate, uncharted territory, and a new adventure. I knew for the first time that I wanted to leave home around 15 years…

Drive.

  11:11   It’s time to make a new beginning, or a new ending. That’s the best part of life, we don’t know what chapter we are in   Today was a day of checking off errands then ditching them for some quiet from the city.

Californians Who Endured The Rain

Californians Who Endured The Rain

  Originally I am from Southern California, where the state has been in drought for years. When it rains social media feeds are “flooded” (ha) with posts about the weather, as if their fellow neighbors did not already know. But while browsing through my news feed during this storm I found a few people who really took the rainy days by storm (i’ll stop with the puns).
