TRAVELING THE WORLD AND THRU TIME
When I was little, I'd tap tap tap on my dad's head when he was asleep in the mornings, and we'd get up and go bakery exploring on vacations. He's really into making homemade bread, and he likes to see how bakeries make their stuff. Today we explored a bakery called Sweetish Hill before breakfast.
Mexic-arte was a nice little art gallery.
We stopped at the house of famous short-story author, O Henry. Then I checked out the local Goodwill while my parents were in a book store. Even though everything was half price, I still didn't buy anything because I DON'T NEED ANY MORE MATERIAL STUFF.
After lunch, we explored the Botanical Garden.
My mom convinced me to buy this book. It was pretty fantastic, as many would say, "right up my alley." I am still reckoning with my thoughts on Instagram and fashion. I love using both of those platforms to document and showcase my style, yet I often worry about the potential superficiality of these activities. But, like I KEEP TELLING MYSELF using Instagram and my blog to document my fashion sense is SOMETHING I REALLY REALLY ENJOY (and always have enjoyed), SO IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK ABOUT IT. I'm going to do what makes me happy, or as cheesier people might say...follow my passion. Anyway, in this book, Aimee Song, a successful blogger (4.2m on Insta) talks about her love for blogging, and she gives advice on how to promote your own blog. I may do a book review of this book and another I have read over break. ....Stay tuneddd.....
My mom booked us tickets to a musical version of the famous A Christmas Carol. Well.... It was pretty frightening how much I could find myself relating to Scrooge, with his obsessive habit of hoarding money. I often hoard my babysitting money arbitrarily, but recently I've worked on moving past that by buying my family and friends Christmas presents (without worrying about the price tag). My mom insists that classic literature is important because many times, issues that were prevalent in other centuries are still relatable and concerning today. I agree. This play was uplifing, and it inspired me to do more for others.
