It's Time for Change

I always go back and forth on what my blog should be. In the past, I've focused on writing, book reviews, and small bits of fashion, while more recently, I've dove into travel and fashion trends. At the end of the day, however, I'm not happy with it, and I've yet to figure out why, but something I miss most about my past blog was being able to have a venue to vent, to be real, and to connect. Something I want to experiment with in the coming months, especially since I've started…


New Directions // Making This Blog More Unique

When I created my blog, I wanted to play a part in everything I loved – writing, books, movies, fashion, travel, advice…The list never ended. After a couple years of trying to maintain everything under the sun, I came to the smarter decision of narrowing down my niche.   For years, I’ve struggled with finding my sweet spot. I loved books and writing, but I never wanted to blog about them. They were things I liked to do in my spare time and not for a public audience. I…


Brand Expectations

I’m twenty. I currently reside in the guest bedroom of my sister’s and her fiancé’s home. I work as a full-time freelancer, picking up writing gigs as I go, and I plan to eventually move to Phoenix, AZ, because I like the desert and cities, and it has both.   Why am I telling you this?   As a blogger, I invest a lot of time in building a brand. I try very hard to brand myself as a travel blogger with a great sense of style, and though that’s true, I’m…


The Monthly Update - May 2017

As my schedule becomes busier and busier, I find that writing out my thoughts each month would be a great way to keep up with my work and goals. Posting it on my blog will keep me held accountable for what I do, and maybe my goals and plans can help you too.   “The Monthly Update” will be a brand new blog series occurring once a month on the first of the month. Since this idea occurred to me in the last 24 hours, May’s monthly update is a little further into the month.…


Calm over the horizon

Many years ago, I worked for my parents who own a video production company. Because it is a family business, you inevitably end up wearing many hats and being the czar of many different jobs. I mainly managed projects and worked as a video editor. On production, there were times that I was called on to work as an audio tech and was made to wear headphones on long production days. In those days, having a really good set of headphones that picked up every nuance of sound was essential to making…

Make it clean and simple

Create your header preset in just few clicks. Just the other day I happened to wake up early. That is unusual for an engineering student. After a long time I could witness the sunrise. I could feel the sun rays falling on my body. Usual morning is followed by hustle to make it to college on time. This morning was just another morning yet seemed different. Witnessing calm and quiet atmosphere, clear and fresh air seemed like a miracle to me. I wanted this time to last longer since I was not sure…


Time is passing by

CSS selectors all exist within the same global scope. Anyone who has worked with CSS long enough has had to come to terms with its aggressively global nature — a model clearly designed in the age of documents, now struggling to offer a sane working environment for today’s modern web applications. Every selector has the potential to have unintended side effects by targeting unwanted elements or clashing with other selectors. More surprisingly, our selectors may even lose out in the global…


Sounds from the streets

Working from your home?

01. Wake up at the same time every day. Naturally, my first impression of these headphones is based off of the look of them. They have a classic over-the-ear style that is highlighted by a blue LED light that indicates the power for the noise canceling. The padding on the ear pieces seems adequate for extended usage periods. They are wired headphones, but the 3.5mm stereo mini-plug cable is detachable. Something else I noticed right of the bat was the very nice carrying case that comes with…
