It seems as though the days blend together in a blur. It feels like just recently I was marveling in my cousin’s engagement, & now she’s getting married in nearly TWO WEEKS! So many birthdays of friends & families have passed. I can hardly remember how many parties I’ve attended in the last month or so. This upcoming week, my 5-year old niece will be performing in a children’s ballet recital. I was invited, but unable to attend. (I hope my sister captures everything on film!)

I’m so amazed at how quickly time passes these days. Like I said before, it’s all like one big blur. I can barely recognize day from night, especially since the Summer weather provides longer hours of sunlight & prolonged sunsets. Only in the pitch darkness of the night, when I lay my head to rest, I feel as though time has slowed down, allowed me to take a breath & relax.

This Monday starts a new week. I shall make the most of it as much as possible. Until then, cheers!

Today’s song of the day:

I am sitting here in my local big box coffee shop, thinking about the things I’ve got to do this week. Then it hits me, like a baseball straight to the face, I haven’t written anything in this blog for a hot second. I know it’s not mandatory for me to write anything, but I’ve been trying to impose a goal for myself to write at least once per week, & I am surely losing that battle. Most of the things I write about is nothing of worldly importance or of life-altering significance anyway, so I don’t think missing one or two blog posts will make any difference.

These past few weeks have gone by in such a blur, it really makes me scratch my head & wonder where has all the time gone. Each week passes by as though it’s only been a few days. I’ve got so much going on lately with friends & family pulling me in all different directions. I am amazed at myself, at how I’m able to keep it together & stay organized. It’s fun to be busy (& not idle or lazy), but it’s a little draining on my energy, which has made me become more susceptible to getting frequent allergy attacks again.

These past few weeks, I have been to numerous birthday parties & friendly gatherings. I’ve also been furiously planning my trip to 2015 San Diego Comic Con, as well as preparing for my cousin’s upcoming Summer destination wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I feel like I’ve barely had any breathing room to think let alone update my piddly blog. This coming weekend I’m attending both my cousin’s bridal shower party and my niece’s 5-year old birthday party. I’m trying to squeeze both events into one day. That’s going to be real fun! (She says with mock sarcasm.)

On an unrelated note, I took some time out to freshen up my stationery hoard. I bought some more new pens & stickers (with a bonus free postcard) because one simply cannot survive on only one color or style. When buying pens, I almost always stick to the Zeebra Sarasa Clip Gel Ink pens. The colors I got were a light pink, gray, light blue & teal. (I realized, once I got home, that I accidentally bought a duplicate of the light blue color.) As I said before, I also bought stickers. The designs I bought this time were more feminine in style. I’m pretty disappointed that my favorite Japanese stationery shop is carrying less stickers in their inventory, but I understand from a logistical viewpoint as to why they are cutting back. (I still don’t like it though.)

 

Well that’s all I can think of to write in this blog post. I’m off to do some packing for the weekend. Cheers.

Today’s song of the day:

My husband & I were so excited to visit Taipei for the first time, we definitely were planning on going nuts with our camera & take tons of photos.  Here are some of the best highlights of our photo album.

Yes, graffiti is everywhere.  It’s not really a shocking thing in most countries, but we were still excited to see street art throughout the city.  This type of art really amazes us, & these big murals are so cool.

Like I’ve mentioned before, my female friend who got married is from Taipei.  She was showing our big group of friends around town, & as we were walking to the subway station, we passed by this small shop selling funny t-shirts.  All of us thought these two shirts in particular was very fitting for the occasion.  The first shirt on the left says “My husband is the greatest”.  The second shirt on the right says “My wife is never wrong”.  Our group thought it would be funny to buy these shirts for our friends who were getting married that weekend, so they could wear them on their wedding day.  Alas, they begged us not to get them, so we didn’t end up buying them.  It would have been a funny story if we did get those shirts!

It was very interesting to see new/modern buildings mixed in with the older/traditional buildings.  The city itself is quite clean & orderly, however, the older buildings feel a little run-down & worn-out.  This is quite a dramatic contrast against the vibrant background of the bustling cityscape.
