Solitude vs. Loneliness

There’s a difference between loneliness and solitude. We all know that being in a sea of people could still make us feel lonely, yet being alone doesn’t mean we feel lonely. I was doing my daily readings the other day and found this quote that could sum it up: Loneliness is the poverty of self;…

Cheers, to New Beginnings

For the past three years, Jason and I have been celebrating my birthday in different cities. This was us grilling hot dogs for our first trip in Mr. Bunker. It was hot but we still wanted a campfire because what was camping without one? From the way this picture looked, we were having so much…

First Hikes

In the spirit of reminiscence, this was a picture from one of the early hikes I ever did. Jason told me it was only 1 mile, but somehow it felt like 5 miles. He said it was an easy, flat hike, but we walked sideways on the side of the hill the whole time. The…

Getting Older

Since today is my birthday, I get to talk about the freedom of being older. Getting older means I get to try things with more experience and knowledge. If I want to retry something, I can do it with better foundation than I had a decade ago. To me, it means more chance to succeed….

Visiting Congaree National Park

A few years back, we visited the Congaree National Park, and I didn’t like it. I wasn’t excited to be walking in the heat of the summer through a mosquito-infested jungle while hardly breathing due to the high humidity. Jason talked so high about how good walking through trails would be and how cool that…

Big Family Fun in Atlanta, GA

Jason and I had a blast visiting our family in the summer in Georgia. We stayed close to Atlanta, GA, where we didn’t experience the heavy traffic. We were still able to go into Atlanta to enjoy some of its attraction without fighting in traffic all day every day. Having the largest aquarium in the…
