The last few years have been incredible. Life-changing. Inspiring. Lots of adjectives.

I’ve opened up myself to new experiences, opportunities, and people. I’ve seen the good and the bad.

While roaming through the aisles at the store, I found bags of lettuce and leaves that I’d never heard of before like Shepard’s Purse, Dropwort, and Stonecrop. Continue reading

366//Week 12

This week was awesome.
I got serious about working out. I got my bike fixed (finally!).
I made most of my meals.
I escaped the city bustle and saw a traditional Korean city.

March 19, No Photo. Note: If I forget a photo for a day, I will skip that “day” and just make the challenge stretch longer. At this rate, it’ll take til next February to get it finished!

March 20, Day 78
Began a workout calendar to track progress at work.
