Downtown Adventure

Looking back on grade nine, both my English and Social Studies class had to do a project on family traditions. It was hard for me to think of anything specifically, but what came to mind both times was the adventure my sister would always take me to, in downtown Vancouver for my birthday. Though I didn't end up doing that for the project, I always think of it as our own tradition even though it's only been three years since it started. From turning twelve to now fifteen years old, the trip has been a constant one I always looked forward to. It was like a milestone I had to pass before the idea of me being another year older finally sunk in.

Minimalist Haul

For the lovers of lack of color and minimal style, this post is all for you.

Summer came late to Vancouver this year. For the longest time, I was pretty sure it was going to be a tame season. Boy, I was wrong. Temperatures have been reaching the thirties (Celsius) for the past couple weeks or so and though I love sunshine and the wonders that it does for my mood, I can't help wish for the cooler sunny days that we started off with. So it seems that my heart is yearning for colder weather, which is plain to see by the looks of what I've been buying lately.

An Extensive Guide to My Favorite Creatives / Content Creators

There's a tune by The Limousines called Internet Killed the Video Star (an allusion to The Buggles 'Video Killed the Radio Star') that comes to mind when I think about the evolution of media throughout the decades. As the titles of the songs point out, we truly have gone from radios to videos on television, to an explosion of content on the internet. And though radio was quickly overshadowed by the age of TVs, video content was surely not eclipsed by the dawn of the world wide web. If anything, the internet (namely, YouTube) has catapulted the circulation of videos throughout the globe. 

There has been an undoubted explosion of video content online. This surge in volume can be overwhelming, so much so that it's so notoriously easy to fall into the vortex of baby/animal videos and giggle-worthy vines. 

Now, I'm not one to complain about these videos. I enjoy a good viral video as much as the next person. However, watching a few too many can leave me feeling dazed and empty, and well, like I had just been sucked into a time-less blackhole only to emerge an hour later from a zombie-like trance. Therefore, I do prefer watching more creative content that leaves me feeling inspired and excited for life. So, here's my extensive list of favorite content creators, to help you navigate your way through the expanse of the world wide web.
