Recent happenings

I have a partner now it seems a little weird to even say after so many years single, but it’s nice it’s comfortable and since it’s long distance we travel back and forth every month.

In between that, I’m juggling my job, my mini business and my regular travel!

this year it’s been absolutely crazy, but I’m embracing it, hoping for the best.

 

 

Japan is awesome

So I managed to go to Japan with a brief trip to Korea and back alive!

I absolutely loved Japan! I bought tons of stationery, tons of food, did my fair share of walking, those 3 weeks were some of the best.

I might post some of my musings here just for the laughs and I plan on making a travel journal so I might post my process here ­čÖé

 

I’m so happy and my heart is full of love and sakura┬á<3

Ghibli Challenge

I’m going to Japan next year and I love┬áStudio Ghibli’s films, the animation is amazing but I haven’t seen them all and the ones I’ve watched it was a long ago, since we are planning to go to the┬áStudio Ghibli’s museum and well Japan I want to have the full experience so my challenge is to watch all the Feature Films before March next year!

Life changes

These past months have been interesting, to say the least, I’m learning to be myself and enjoy and be proud of who I am, this year I’ve been trying to be more me, to not apologize and just do what I need to be.

I wish I could explain further here, and maybe I will, I just need to know how to get whatever is in my head into words.

When a week in paradise is not nearly enough

Last week I took a week vacation to visit one of my best friends and celebrate another one of my best friend’s birthday, who 3 years ago moved to no other place but Paradise aka Cancun, and I for one could have stayed longer! the weather was amazing, so was the company.

We visited Bacalar the lagoon of 7 colours, my ┬áfriend and I pretended to be wives to earn a free tour, we visited beaches, we went to Xcaret, we were tourist in Chich├ęn Itz├í, we laughed, we swam, we ate and we had a good old time and now I’m left with yearning and a need to go back and work on my tan so my legs stop looking white.

I’ll be back I know, I’m sure of that and I have Japan to look forward next year! but I miss my friend and I miss the beach and I wish I could be paid for being a tourist all year round.

365 Project

Thinking of maybe doing this, taking a picture every day (or try) and share my experiences and finds here once a week, I won’t start today, but plan to start at the beginning of February or March once I have more grasp on what I’m doing, I need to sort everything out, my head has been swirling with millions of ideas and projects and for once I want to actually do and not stop on the plan.

For one be more consistent on this blog is one of my always waiting projects.

2017 here we go!

 

Almost New year

I’m still figuring out what to share and what not to share here, I’m a complete mess.

I’m starting an instagram for my Art and doodles, I might add some extra commentary around here, maybe Stationery hauls? I buy stationery more than anything else, and it’s the thing I can spend money (lots of it) without feeling completely guilty, I just love everything, the pens, the colours, the tape, the notebooks. I might go crazy.

Anyway check this space, I might post that my artsy stuff, maybe my book reviews or movie reviews? movies? I don’t know

It might just keep being my thought dump, I might post the things I write and keep in a word document, is not like anyone reads this anyway…

Friends

I love my friends to death, otherwise they wouldn’t be my friends right?

But there are times I need me time, more around this time of the year, even though I can say I coped with my Best Team passing away, I still get a really REALLY weird mood around this time of the year. It’s been two years!

I’ve always been a solo soul, I love and have my friends but we are usually not 24/7 in touch, it only happened with her and she is gone, I was feeling the need at first to have company, but not anymore after all I am also my friend, and I mostly like me.

I guess that is a good thing, but maybe I should pay more attention to others even when I am in a weird mood.

Vegan for a Month

So I decided to experiment a little and in March I ate Vegan for the whole month, I also wrote my experiences and the foods I ate!

I will go more on depth on the future Im writing it in both English and spanish to share ­čÖé

All I have to say is, it was an interesting experience and I hope to keep eating some of my favorite vegan dishes in the future!
