People Are Different

Know something funny? People are different. Even though we’re all the same in so many ways, and share a million threads of similarity, we are all different. Not different to the extent that our differences are worth fighting, shunning, or judging over. Just to the extent that I’m sometimes surprised. I think, to some subconscious […]

Thoughts From the Past Two Years

I started writing down some thoughts of mine when they got so large that they could no longer remain concealed to my head. I compiled them all into a note on my phone, and although I did not update them regularly, I updated them when I felt I needed to most. Some thoughts from the past two […]

Morning

You know when you wake up with a smile? You grab something for breakfast, then sit down, and just feel… Alright. You put on some music, and sit there. You might not be moving, but you are totally, utterly animated. Your thoughts, your views, your position on life is alive, running, flying. Capable of anything. […]

The Funny Thing About Memory

I sat in lecture today for three hours, learning about memory and the functions that drive our nostalgia. I began to think of all of the memories I have stored in my brain, and all of the memories I almost forgot about. Memories from my childhood, memories from my awkward teenager years, memories in general. Such […]

Hello Lillian

Two days ago, on January 10th, a woman I once knew named Lillian Feng passed away. I did not know Lillian well, we never spent time together outside of school, or became the type of friends that would attend each others birthday parties. But regardless, she played a character in my life. I had known her […]

It Is Mind Blowing

I took a look at Google flights, a layout of our planet’s geography and Earth’s various regions, and think to myself, it is mind blowing. It is mind blowing how close every city and country seems when laid out onto an electronic screen. It is mind blowing that we all live in the same world. It is […]

We Need to Take Care of Our Parents

The other day I came upon a brief realization relevant to the relationship between ourselves and our parents, in many but not all circumstances. In many circumstances such as my own, we are indebted to our parents. They raise us from day one to year eighteen, and long after that. If we consider the alternative life […]

The Day I Almost Died & Reasons Why I Am Still Not an Adult

The drive is going smoothly, beautiful weather in the mountains with some grey-looking skies further on. Currently playing one of my Dad’s CD’s which I’m really digging at the moment. The cars in front of me are driving fairly slow which is a bit of a nuisance, but not worth getting worked up over. Now the […]

Big World, Small People

I just wanted to talk about nature for a little while. How awesome it is, how restorative it is, how insightful it is, and how weird it is that we call it “nature”. Sitting on a large rock above Fallen Leaf Lake, it astounded me how small we are in retrospect to the rest of […]

Hitchhikers Guide to the 1900’s-Before-Shit-Became-Over-Cautionary

On the way up to Lake Tahoe there stood a couple in hiking gear, man and woman, standing together motioning the universal yet outdated hand sign asking for a ride. I had not been paying full attention to the side of the road and only managed to catch the man’s eye as I passed them, a kind […]
