Greetings everyone! I was supposed to make this blogpost last month but for some reason I just didn’t have the motivation to make it. However, I do have that motivation now and I am having an iced tea and listening to alt-J so I am feeling much more motivated, so here is my New York City trip blogpost! This will be divided into two different posts because this will be long since we did so much stuff and visited a lot of places. So here’s part one of this New York Trip.

If you guys didn’t know, NYC is my favourite city ever and you’ve probably heard a lot of people say that already but I really do mean it. It gives me such a feeling that I don’t get from any other place. Living in Toronto you’d think I’d get the same city vibe that I get when I’m in New York, but nope. I mean, I still do love Toronto, I grew up here so it has a place in my heart, but New York has a bigger place in my heart.

Hello, folks! I know, I know, I haven’t posted in what- 3 months? I seriously from the bottom of my heart apologize for that (mini) hiatus. I have been so busy with school for the past few weeks and have been putting off writing blogposts for weeks and weeks until it became months.

So, how have you guys been? How has life treated you lately? Anything new?

Well, for me, not much has changed. I’m still the same old me but now living somewhere else. I know I haven’t posted pictures of our new apartment yet but that’s because I only come home during the weekends, I spend the weekdays at my friends’ house where I’m currently living. When school finishes, I’m officially moving in to that apartment. I mean, everything I own is already set up there already. Heck, my parents are already living there! I promise to post pictures of the apartment when I officially move in, which is in two weeks. I have had so much work to do and exams were just this week. But I’m okay now since school is over.

Anyway, enough of my stressful life. I’ve got news for you guys. Yep, I’m going to New York City (again!) this Fourth of July weekend! It was only a brief plan, we barely thought about actually planning the trip. However, my mom still booked a flight and hotel to NYC. We’re leaving Toronto on July 1 to go to the city and as far as I can remember we’re staying in Upper East Side. Since we only went for two days the last time we went and barely got to where we wanted to go, we’re staying there for a longer amout of time this time. And we’re gonna go to as many spots that we want to because NYC trips rarely happens for us so we’re making the most of it this time.

So here is a list of spots I want to visit (in no particular order):

  • Times Square, this is always a must anyways.
  • Empire State Building, like actually see the New York skyline from up there.
  • MoMA!!! I didn’t go the last time and I’ve always been a lover of art so it would be AMAZING to go there.
  • Brooklyn Bridge, actually walk on it.
  • Brooklyn in general.
  • Grand Central just because it looks romantic and reminds me of Before We Go (2015).
  • Maybe see a play? (Hamilton preferably but I don’t have $$$)
  • Eat at Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant (because my friends forced me to watch Forrest Gump last week).
  • Statue of Liberty, I went last time but never actually got off the ferry.
  • Anything else in between.
  • The MET.
  • 9/11 Memorial.

So that’s it so far, I think. I don’t know where else I want to go because those are the main attractions. I just can’t wait, you know. It’s my favourite place in the world and I would drop anything I’m doing to go there anytime. The city itself gives me a feeling I can’t put into words but it makes me feel happy and new.

Anyways, I hope you guys have a great start of the summer because I sure will! Again, sorry for not posting a lot but I promise I will this summer.

PS: I’m gonna bring back my YouTube because I got a GoPro this week and I’m gonna film while in NYC so you guys should check my YouTube out. Link’s on the right side of my blog.


Hey everybody! I know I haven’t posted anything in over a month and it’s almost been like a hiatus. It’s just been really busy lately because of the new semester, school work, and moving. Yes, moving. This is what this post really is about.

My parents and I are officially moving back in Toronto on May 7th. However, I still have to finish the school year here in Mississauga so I can’t move in to our new place until the beginning of July. I don’t know where I’m going to stay during that over-a-month period of time but I’m sure it’ll work out.

We were first planning to move to Brampton, which is just a few minutes away from my current house right now but that didn’t work out. Then, we planned to move to one of the semi-detached houses in Niagara, having the house attached to ours be my mom’s coworker’s house. We were all ready to move in but the plan was that if my family or my mom’s friend didn’t get approved by the bank, we wouldn’t buy the house. So yeah, that didn’t work. It was too far too, I thought, but I guess if we ended up living there I would get used to it sooner or later. And now, the same friend of my mom told us about an apartment that was on the market at their building. We checked it out, was really impressed because it looked more like a condo than an apartment, took the deal, and now we’re buying furniture. We’ve got bed frames, mattresses, paintings, dining table, mirrors, blinds, etc. We’re all set, I think.

I’m really excited about this whole thing, if I were being honest with you. The new place we’re going to live in is in the city, it’s surrounded by buildings and night life and pretty lights and busy people trying to get to work everyday. And if you knew me, that’s exactly my dream. I’ve always wanted to be in New York City and Toronto is just like that, except less lively. Anyways, I’m super hyped because I got a bunch of new furniture I can use when I move in early July. I can’t wait to meet new people and go to a new school although the thought of leaving my current friends still saddens me. It always crosses my mind. My friend told me a couple of days ago that I won’t be able to graduate with them, or go to prom with them, and do all these high school things with them and even if they invite me to go, it won’t be the same because I’m not really a part of the school. Does that make sense? But yeah, you know, typically it makes me sad but I’m still excited.  It still hasn’t hit me that I’m leaving so right now I barely feel anything about the entire situation.

Because of this whole thing, I’m reminded that nothing in life stays forever. People come and go and things will never always be there and what we need to learn is to deal with it. It’s hard to say goodbyes but we need to learn how to say them anyways. It’s tough, yes, but pain is temporary, just like anything else. I mean, you can always keep in touch with people by texting or calling or video chats or through social media. There are endless amounts of ways you can communicate with your friends. From this situation I learn that things may end but there will always be another start. I’m so thankful.

Anyways, that’s all. Just wanted to update you guys about what’s been happening lately. I’ll try to post pictures of the apartment when I visit it again and I’m gonna try to keep you guys updated. Thanks for still being here. I appreciate it. 🙂


I wanted to make a post about the 88th Annual Academy Awards yesterday but I only got 4 hours of sleep yesterday. After the show ended I couldn’t sleep at the thought of what happened!! I am so so so so so happy that Leo finally won his first ever Academy Award. This man means so much to me and I am so proud of how far he’s come. Catch Me If You Can was the first movie of his that I ever saw and I knew right then that he was going to be something else. And he was, and still is. I don’t really know where to begin with this post because all that would come out is “I’m so proud/happy” but that doesn’t suffice my feelings about the situation.

When the red carpet began, it was towards the end that I saw him and at that moment it still hasn’t sunk it to me that this could be it. I knew for a fact that he was going to win because he did amazing in The Revenant, as mentioned in my previous posts. Anyway, he walked in looking like this and my jaw literally dropped. I would say his best look this awards season is still at the Golden Globes but I mean, this? This is just pure art.


Then he was with Kate and my heart just imploded in different directions. They are so adorable I literally have no words.tumblr_o3ccmc4hCv1qj1ouho1_540.jpg



I don’t even know what to say. I just love them so much. I can’t believe they’re not married. When will Leo realize the girl of his dreams is right there in front of him?

So then the show started, and it STILL hasn’t sunk in to me that he was going to win. I mean I knew it was going to happen, it just didn’t seem real to me. It felt like a dream (cue the Inception soundtrack). I just went on and watched the show as a regular person would. I was surprised that The Revenant didn’t get as much wins as I thought it would. However, Mad Max: Fury Road swept the entire awards show; not surprising considering it was the best movie of 2015, in my opinion.

Then they announced best director and Alejandro won! And that when it hit me. My stomach literally twisted in 84 different directions and I was ready to throw up any moment. Brie Larson won Best Actress – I am so happy she did because she did exceptional in Room! Then here I go again with the twisting stomach. I was so scared and nervous and just all in all wanted to cry although I couldn’t just yet. Then they announced who were nominated for Best Actor and my mind goes “oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh” and then Julianne Moore says:

“and the Oscar goes to… Leonardo DiCaprio”


I literally couldn’t contain myself inside. I recorded his whole speech and my hand was shaking so hard. He thanked Alejandro, and Chivo, and Tom, and then this man went on about the environment which was totally not surprising. Leo is an environmental activist and is very concerned about climate change. His speech was 90% about global warming and it made me really really happy. He is one of the very few famous people that I know who use their power and fame for something good and raising awareness on serious matters rather than using that power and fame and taking advantage of it. The fact that he used quite possibly the biggest night of his life so far to tell people about climate change and how it’s a threat to mankind made me adore him even more.





After the show, he had to have his name engraved on the award. When the lady was screwing the tiny plaque on the award that had his name on it, he asks, “You do this every year? […] I wouldn’t know.” This man, I swear. He literally lowkey joked about how he wouldn’t know because he never got an Oscar before. Then when his name was on the award, the lady gave him a pamphlet with the instructions on how to take care of the statue. He asks “I have to take care of it? I have to maintain it? What does it need?” and the lady tells him “water.” and he was handed the award back and he walked away smiling like an Academy Award winner should.



To me, everyone nominated in the category was deserving, but no one deserved it more than Leo. He is without a doubt, one, if not the, best actor of our generation. I don’t know. It’s done now. He has it. He won it. The “Leo has no Oscar” jokes are over. I don’t know what to do anymore at this point. All I know is that I’m incredibly proud of him and that he’s an amazing human being who deserves everything good in the world. And I cannot wait to see him make more films that will continue to leave the world in awe of how talented he is. I cannot wait for the future awards he’s going to get. I cannot wait for what he’s going to do next.

Anyway, congratulations Leo!


I have seen Good Will Hunting quite a couple times but it wasn’t until the last time that I saw it, which was during the first few days of January, that it really hit how much this movie means a lot to me. I haven’t stopped thinking about this movie ever since. It contains so much emotion and depth that it makes me want to curl up in a ball and cry for a few days straight.

The movie is about Will Hunting, played by Matt Damon, who has an IQ of a genius but works as a janitor at MIT. He solves a difficult mathematical problem and is later consulted to a therapist played by Robin Williams. Will is just a regular guy, nothing big happens in his life and he usually just goes out to the bar to drink beer with Chuckie, portrayed by Ben Affleck, and his other friends. He meets a girl, Skylar, who is played by Minnie Driver, but he still needs to re-evaluate his relationships with himself and the people he surrounds himself with the help of Robin’s character in order to find his direction in life.

This movie has changed my life, as cheesy and corny as that may sound, and has opened my eyes to things that I thought didn’t matter much before. If you still haven’t seen Good Will Hunting, I highly suggest that you do. By the way, the screenplay is written by both Damon and Affleck which they won Oscars for!

But this is what this post is about.

W h a t   c a n   w e   l e a r n   f r o m   G o o d   W i l l   H u n t i n g ?

1. Use your talent.
Will is incredibly smart yet he refuses to move out of South Boston to use his knowledge. Often times, our hidden talents stay hidden, and I feel like this is the case for me. Quite a lot of people say that I’m very good at writing and should probably think about starting a book, which I still haven’t done because I don’t feel like I’m good enough to write something that people would want to keep reading. Because of this, I resorted to starting a blog. I have no problem with this blog since I’ve always wanted to do it anyway, but in a way it was also a sort of “shield” for the whole book-writing thing. There are people out there who are incredibly good at something but they choose to not let anyone know about this talent because of fear, this then makes them settle for what they have now instead of using their ability to make something greater of themselves.

2. Education doesn’t always come from a classroom.
I hate how true this is because it makes me want to just go out there and learn everything I possibly can. There are just certain things in life, or really about life, that you don’t learn in a classroom. There are situations in life that you would have to deal with first hand and later on learn from it. That’s what Will is like. Even though he’s clearly a genius, he learns from the things he comes across to.

See, the sad thing about a guy like you is in fifty years, you’re gonna start doing some thinking on your own, and you’re gonna come up with the fact that there are two certainties in life: one, don’t do that. And two, you dropped a hundred and fifty grand on a f***ing education you could have got for a dollar fifty in late charges at the public library.

– Will

3. We’re all just trying to find out what our purpose is in life. Some may take longer than others.
Will didn’t have direction in his life before he met Sean (Williams). He didn’t know what he wanted to do with himself or where he was headed. He didn’t know and had no idea what to do. I can relate to Will during that time because I mentioned before that I still have no idea what I want to do with my life and frankly same goes for my purpose. I don’t really know whether or not I’ve already served my purpose here on earth or if I still have yet to do it. But I know one thing’s for sure, it’s okay if we take time. There’s no rush.

4. Sometimes all we need is a little push.
I think my favourite part of the entire movie is when Chuckie tells Will how it is.

‘Cause tomorrow I’m gonna wake up and I’ll be 50. And I’ll still be doing this sh*t. And that’s all right, that’s fine. I mean, you’re sittin’ on a winning lottery ticket and you’re too much of a p*ssy to cash it in. And that’s bullsh*t. `Cause I’d do anything to f***ing have what you got. So would any of these f***ing guys. It’d be an insult to us if you’re still here in 20 years. Hanging around here is a f***ing waste of your time. […] Oh, I don’t know that? Let me tell you what I do know. Every day I come by your house and I pick you up. And we go out we have a few drinks and a few laughs, and it’s great. You know what the best part of my day is? It’s for about 10 seconds from when I pull up to the curb to when I get to your door. Because I think maybe I’ll get up there and I’ll knock on the door and you won’t be there. No goodbye, no see you later, no nothin’. You just left. I don’t know much, but I know that.

– Chuckie

Personally, this is what I think really pushed Will to finally leave Boston and do something greater with his life. I feel like Will needed someone that really cares about him and have that person tell him to go after it and do something far greater for himself. And I feel that having those words come out of Chuckie, a guy who barely gives a damn about anything at all, really woke up Will to his senses. I think some of us just really need that little push to make us go for it. And if you’re that person right now waiting for someone to wake you up to your senses, I’m here to tell you to go for it. Go. Go after whatever it is you’ve been meaning to go after.

5. It’s okay to let people in, sometimes it’s exactly what we need to do.
Will didn’t want to go through therapy at first because he felt like he didn’t have any problems. But later on, he opens up to Sean about his life and how things have been for him. There’s a scene where Sean repetitively tells Will “it’s not your fault” until Will cries and they hug it out. This was when I learned that Will has had so much bottled up inside of him that he was just ready to burst any moment. On the outside, he seemed like this really confident, cocky guy who doesn’t care much but inside he’s broken and has a lot going on.

Often times, the reason why we don’t open up to other people is because we fear that they’ll judge us for feeling the way we do. But quite frankly, there are times that we need to open up to someone and tell them what’s going on with us instead of bottling up all these emotions inside of you. Just remember:


6. Things will be okay.
Sean told Will that bad times wake us up to the good stuff we weren’t paying attention to. I can’t even begin to tell you how true that has been for me. My religion teacher gave my class and advice this week: just wait. He said that things will be okay and all we have to do is just wait. It may not seem like it now but you will be fine, and you will be happy again and you will look back into this obstacle you’re facing and smile at the fact that you overcame.

7. Real loss only occurs when you’ve loved somebody more than you love yourself.
Need I say more?

Guys, please go watch this movie if you still haven’t. It’s beyond beautiful and I cannot emphasize that enough.
