A City of Hope

WARNING: This is not your typical travel blog. It’s not filled with a list of things to do and see, but rather the cry of my heart. I just got back from my family vacation to Arizona and Las Vegas, NV this week, and I’m honestly still processing everything I saw. We got to see … More A City of Hope


We have the freedom to choose many things. We have the freedom to choose to go to the gym and finish that hard workout, and we also have the freedom to sit on the couch eating Doritos and watching Netflix. We have the freedom to love our family well by calling them often if they … More Freedom


Finally, we get to the last blog in the series about plants. To start from the beginning, you can read Seeds, Roots, and Sprout.

Recently, I’ve picked up a growing fascination with plants … More Seeds

Have you ever been scared of not measuring up to people’s expectations for your life? Have you ever tried to get the job or position, balance the busy schedule, … More Inadequacy

Quality Time

To be honest, this is my first relaxing night in what feels like forever. I just made myself a cup of white berry tea, featured in the picture above, and I sat down to write a blog for fun, and it’s not even 8pm. Life this past semester has been so crazy busy, but I … More Quality Time
