It’s been a while since I’ve had time to make another blogpost, and I’m sure you all have been dying to hear about what’s new in my life. Last week, I spent a couple days helping my younger sister move into her apartment in San Francisco. We spent the remainder of the time exploring the city and meeting up with a couple of friends. Since my time there was short, we didn’t get to explore as much as I would have liked to but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I had a great time being away from everything that’s been bothering me, and being somewhere different.
I had the afternoon to myself, and decided that instead of moping around I should take advantage of this situation and browse around my favourite shops. I am pleased to say that ended up coming across great finds! 🙂

It’s my twenty-first birthday, and I’m spending the afternoon at my local Panera Bread, blogging about how shitty I’ve been feeling.
I don’t exactly know what’s wrong with me, but I’ve been thinking, possibly overthinking about different areas of my current life. One in particular concerns my love life.
For the past three days, I’ve been staying over at my aunt’s house and helping her out at her office. I originally was supposed to volunteer at a mental health facility, but the person I was supposed to be in contact with is unresponsive, and I haven’t heard from them in a month. So, in order for me to gain more experience in the workforce, my aunt offered to take me under her wing and teach me how to work in an office setting.
Last night, while having dinner with my aunt, my cousin, and my younger sister, we entered a discussion about our family, which eventually led up to my aunt telling us stories from when she was younger, and giving us life advice. My relatives on my mother’s side had a difficult time immigrating from Taiwan to the United States. My grandmother ended up being separated from my grandfather for five years, and waited in California for the rest of the family to arrive. In the meantime, my grandfather and my aunt stayed together in Taiwan, while the rest of the family was either in school or overseas. My aunt then preceded to tell us an incident that had altered my view of my grandfather, as well as my grandparents’ overall relationship.
It took me forever to go ahead and customise the features of this blog theme and end up with a product I am finally pleased with. And now, I can finally begin to utilise my new blog.
