Walking through Crescent River Park in New Orleans, I was surprised at the stark contrast between the serene riverside and the music-filled, lively streets of the French Quarter. After spending some time absorbing the happenings of Royal and Bourbon Street, the calm area beyond this bridge was much appreciated.
Hurricane Matthew caused damage to so many families, homes, and cities. I was fortunate to have a home to go back to—away from the storm—and took advantage of the time off from work to bury myself in some books while keeping an eye on several storm trackers.

Strangers & art at one of my newly frequented spots – the downtown Starbucks ☕️
Since graduation, I’ve done quite a bit of writing, packing, moving, organizing, and thinking. Transitioning from being a full-time student to working has been far from easy but over the past few weeks, I’ve established a few new routines (mostly to occupy myself during the weekends) and spending hours in coffee shops has been one of them✌️ –happy weekend!
I spent quite a while trying to come up with a more creative title for this post, but failed to do so (😪)…but here’s a baby pineapple growing in our backyard back home!
I wanted to try something a little different on the blog today, still experimenting with videos. Click on the image if you’d like to check out the clip! Have a safe & happy weekend!
