my father, my hero


Whether it’s been 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks or 3 days–I don’t miss him any less. The fact that I can swell up in tears at the instant thought of him means nothing has really changed. It is especially difficult to deal with around this time of the year. I cannot fall asleep when my head is full of thoughts about him. I keep seeing him in my dreams when I finally do. I look at his photos and memories come flooding back. The only comforting thought to carry on is the glimmer of hope that he is always with me, watching over me and our family.

He was the happiest and most optimistic person I have ever met. He might have been flawed to other people, but he was always perfect in my eyes. After he was gone, a permanent dark cloud looms over our heads every day. Nothing is the same anymore. Just a big broken mirror with glass pieces glued in place.

Still, I will try to make him proud. Because I am my father’s daughter.

Because he is my hero.

even the stars, they burn.

After two+ years, I finally decided to chop my long hair off. It’s been fun, long hair, but my inner self has always preferred short (if not shorter) hair. Long hair is pretty and can even be glamorous, but for whatever reason I just feel it kind of lacks everything else.

Anyway, this was mainly a result of me feeling restless lately. They always come and go–coming more often than leaving, actually. In those moments I would flood my head with all sorts of thoughts or escape in my daydreams, which generally comprise of three things: a) living in my own place b) traveling to warm/sunny beaches or c) leaving Seattle [semi-permanently]. Since none of those things are happening any time soon, I desperately crave for other therapeutic, happy distractions. Even temporary, superficial distractions are welcome.

year 2014

…Things to let go, things to accept, things to look forward to.

Happy new year, everyone! It’s still hard to believe that another year is over already. 365 days don’t seem that many anymore as you get older and things move faster than you realize. Year 2013 has been plentiful and quite memorable, to say the least. I just hope it meant the start of a new beginning in my life.

On another note, there are a few major goals/projects I would love to accomplish in 2014:

  • 365 photography project
    – paintings in the shop
    – furoshiki project
    – work room
    – diy-only gifts
    – learn watercolor
  • (Yes, they all happen to have a ‘creative’ theme this year.)

    happy holidays

    I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas with their loved ones. Undeniably, this year has been much more eventful than the last several years. Mostly in a good way–as I was able to spend a lot more time with old and new friends, get more festive with the decorations/presents and feel a little more merry. Although I still struggle to come to terms about how the holidays used to be and what it meant for me in the past, at the same time I’m trying to make peace and enjoy the [better] changes as I continue to move on with life.
