    the flowers in her hair

    prompt: she loved her garden and there was nothing she found more relaxing than spending a morning there (descriptive writing) The first beam of light for the day was shown through a window displaying a fairly moderate sized bedroom with a single bed, a desk and a couple of filled bookshelves ranging of books of all kinds. A teenage girl should live here perhaps, with her desk filled up with pencils and papers and textbooks all scattered around and Polaroid’s of a girl and her friends. Alas, the bed is made and the window seems ajar above the window, swaying back and forth by a sudden breeze. Right below seems to be…

    a lil art adventure

    tuesday, july seventeen, twenty-eighteen today one of my good friend (@nagayamaaa on instagram #spon) and I went on a little art adventure together. we first went the local art gallery where we found only a small art exhibit and ended up staying for about half an hour just talking and looking through each other's sketchbooks. we ended up going to a nearby library and collecting a bunch of books about film, art, photography and ended up sitting for hours and just drawing. cause why not. this is what we do. afterwords we ended up going to the mall to get timmies and ended up having a washi tape hunt. i left out a…

    the process of conquering your fears – step two

    the one fear that i always have had is, change. one huge thing i’ve struggled with for a long time and will probably always have trouble with. there’s been a lot of changes this past year already in my life and changing up samsta is just one of them. this has always been a big goal of mine once i started this blog a couple years ago. the only problem i had with it was, what if something went wrong? what if it didn’t work out? what if samsta would just become one of those blogs where only one person comes to look at it… and it’s just me. a lot of what-ifs…

    journaling

    I haven’t picked up a pen and properly written about my day or my thoughts or my dreams or what I have seen in so long. I used to keep a diary. and to be honest I still do. I am proud to say that I have come up to at least eight so far. however, the past few years I haven’t been able to write in them. I always pick up a new blank notebook that is ready to be filled by memories, however I always forget. or I always get distracted by a certain point in my life. last year, as in twenty-sixteen, I wrote in my diary…

    memories of twenty-seventeen

    dear reader, this past year has definitely been a roller coaster of emotions and memories. i have had many ups and many downs this year. many heartbreaks, many headaches and many memories made through all this. many goals were set. a few broke halfway through due to circumstances and some actually made it through to the other side. my life in general has been kind of rough this past month due to personal matters that I’ve tried to deal with but gave up half way through. the heartache has been enough to last me a while. my year however, was filled with laughs and cries due to a few chapters…

    art adventures

    on december nineteen, twenty-seventeen, my friend and I went downtown and had a day filled of art and fun. we laughed, we talked, and we drew. literally. this day was a day dedicated for us to catch up after a few months and to explore the arts we could find in downtown. our first and only stop (or so we thought) was going to the Royal Ontario Museum, or the ROM. we only went their to explore and look around. oh, we also brought our sketchbooks with us. we drew everything we found interesting and beautiful and we went through the entire building while having our sketchbooks in our hands, backpacks on our back, and looking wide-eyed at everything…
