do you ever have those days where everything is wonderful and you're so grateful to be in the very exact spot that you are in life? where all that you witness and think about was meant to be seen and learned on this day in history? and you want to remember and describe every moment on paper because it feels so life-altering? i don't know, i feel this sense of enchantment takes over me sometimes in bangkok, and i can't help but take a step back and just inhale deeply to take it all in. i was walking through this busy intersection of the city today and it just didn't feel real, it was too dreamlike to be real. the people and the cars and the big blue sky and the smells and the noises everywhere were in harmony. to be able to witness these sort of moments in time firsthand is really humbling. the crazy thing is, sometimes my whole day feels like this and my small little brain can't handle all the excitement. too bad i don't have a camera to chronicle my time here, but i guess it's okay since i have the moment already stored somewhere. i just need to find a way to eloquently transfer it into words.

it does feel great (and sort of odd) though to live everyday in this positive way of thinking.


  1. I recommend buying a disposable. Pictures come out very vintage 90's and your also much more selective when it comes to actually taking a picture.

  2. I call these peak experiences, or peak moments.

    I hope you take care of yourself out there.

    Have you sought out the expat community out there?

    I'd love to know what you've been doing with your time there.
