Monochromatic Throwbacks

Monochromatic, as suggested by WPC. Also known as: a perfectly valid excuse to post pictures I kept and did not care to share. When You Look Closer. Behind every beautiful scene is an invasion waiting to happen. Seriously, beneath those lilies, toads were waiting. Some are even on ready-to-leap positions and when you look closer, they’re…

From Every Angle: Paper Crowns

I was planning the first birthday party of a friend’s daughter. Like any close friend, she confidently demands to have paper crowns included in the party favours for the children. I like DIYs myself, so the idea seemed great—that is until I had to make them, which is tedious. The mom and dad had to…

25 Days, 25 Songs Day 13: Ex-Friend

Well, that’s someone I didn’t want to remember. But when it comes to TwinDaddy‘s day 13 song challenge, any other friend was just a friend I have not kept in touch with, and “Former Friend” brought to mind only one person. I guess everyone has that one friend who thinks the universe revolves around them.…

25 Days, 25 Songs: Two In One

So, what did I miss? No, I did not forget TwinDaddy‘s 25 days worth of songs; I just could not do days 8 and 9 because I was away and separate from civilization. I went on a camping trip, where I helped teach a bunch of kids some basics of mountaineering. It was fun, even…

25 Days, 25 Songs Day 7: This Time Last Year

April and May are summer months in my country, and I had to dig through my Facebook timeline to see what I did last year. This activity highlighted the relevance of the origin of things, and I now appreciate how my current lifestyle began. TwinDaddy‘s challenge today tells me to remember the past summer, and…

25 Days, 25 Songs Day 6: Best Friend

Today, someone thanked me for a “great training class.” Which reminded me, yet again, how much I liked doing my job. Little notes of gratitude like the simple, privately-spoken comment I received today have become the moments I live for. These are my thank-you’s, and I will keep them all to myself for future admiration…
