I'm so glad I got to visit my friend this past weekend. I haven't seen her for almost a year! We spent sometime in Washington D.C, Maryland, and Virginia. Ate all the food like there was no tomorrow and walked around A LOT.

The Earth laughs in flowers.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Spring is finally here. With all the pollen in the air, sometimes I forget that somewhere in the midst of all the yellow cars and all the sneezing--peonies, cherry trees and daisies are blossoming. I've waited for the flowers to bloom and the sun to shine! Also the bees are everywhere, literally every time I step out of the apt I'm greeted by them.
I found this photo above through tumblr and just fell in love...with tulips. Then I found the photographer responsible for this bright photo, Arthur Chang. This led to hours looking through his entire portfolio containing photos of engagements, weddings, landscapes, and portraits. His ability to capture moments are very different from other wedding photographers I've come across. They just seem purely real.
I've always found it hard to buy flowers because they eventually die, but I totally see why it's worth keeping around the house or anywhere really. It just brightens and freshens up any place.

I'll be graduating from college this year like many of my friends and peers. We'll go through a stage of doubt, anxiety, depression, or excitement about what's to come ahead. We'll be applying to plethora of jobs hoping to get at least one response or an interview.
As the time is coming, I begin to wonder what my calling is, what I'm supposed to be doing with my life. I'm supposed to be getting a full-time job-- a job that will give me decent benefits and an income to pay my bills and loans back. I lived my life following the rules and doing the tasks that have been given to me thus far.... Although I changed my major from biology to advertising, something my parents have been very skeptical about, I've managed to come to terms with my abilities. I understand that I'm not smart enough to become a doctor or lawyer. I know I truly have no special talents. I can't speak 3493 different languages let alone write in English correctly. I know what I'm supposed to do, what my parents want me to do, what society wants me to do, but is it what I want to do? Is this the only path to certainty? Does certainty mean having a full-time job, working a 9-to-5 as I complete tasks from a cubicle?
I don't know how to describe what I feel. I have my fears about the future, but also knowing that I have other options makes me optimistic about life.
I think there's more to life than just a path that's keeps defining our society. There's so much to be understood of this world and so much to see. I just want to do what my heart desperately tells me to do, not what my brain tells me to do.
This feeling of uncertainty has been the most certain thing in my life right now at this very moment.

Today I came across Ariele Alasko's blog through a featured post on Instagram and then found myself looking through all of her photos. I instantly fell in love with her work. She creates pieces from repurposed materials and incorporates these incredible simplistic patterns within her designs.
+ also she manages to feature cute cats in her blog.

This is a very raw emotional music video from Rihanna. I love this song and I love this music video because she strips down literally and figuratively. I think she looks happier and prettier out in public these days. Sad to say but maybe because of Chris Brown?
