THE OCEAN

You can be my safety zone, 
Somewhere I can go when I feel alone
That's all I need, all I want, Is to stay a little longer now
Arms around me like a border, 
Like an endless stream
You take me in, To a place that I've never been
Now I'm Giving in to your touch
I will never get enough
Diving deep into the ocean
- Mike Perry (The Ocean)


Three girls on the road, three wild hearts, young and free. Wind in our hair, crystallised salt on our bronzed skin. Age is but a number, but our body will never be younger than we are in this moment. "The oceans is everything I want to be. Beautiful, mysterious, wild and free."

HALO

halo effect 
/ˈheɪləʊɪˈfɛkt/
The tendency for an impression created in one area to
 influence opinion in another area.


I complained during the early-mid year of 2016 that this was one of the worst years I've ever gone through... only because I had such great expectations for it. It started so well, filled with so much potential, only to fall apart. My mind was so focused with the failures that I almost completely overlooked my accomplishments and my blessings. The negative halo effect, negativity in one small area and it cast a negative shade over everything else.

KNOCKOUT

"...who you are is defined by what 
you're willing to struggle for.
- Mark Manson



I don't see gender, and my older brother clearly doesn't either. At home, he will put me in an arm triangle or rear naked, all the moves he has learned from Brazilian Jujitsu. Me? Despite my inability to truly survive in situations like these that happen on a regular, I will still put up a mean fight. I would whack his nose (making him sneeze, which is hilarious) or just plain slap him across the face (only to work him up a bit more so he cranks my arm back a little harder). However, having taken up Muay Thai, I am now capable of giving him a few mean knees into the ribs and falsely elbow him on the head. All the meanwhile with Mumma Chen casually walking past, not so impressed that her daughter is acting a lot less like a daughter in her eyes.

STARLIGHT

"I said, 'Oh my, what a marvelous tune'
It was the best night, never would forget how he moved.
The whole place was dressed to the nines,
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we're made of starlight...
Like we dream impossible dreams."
- Taylor Swift


D back at it again with his inspiration, this time about developing yourself and your passions. I don't care much for people with money, and I love intelligence as I feel like I can learn from them and grow... but nothing... nothing is quite like a person of passion. And their passion does not need to be one that is aligned with my own, a person speaking about something they truly love is captivating in its own right, the way they light up, the way they are filled with life as the words fall out like precious gemstones. And there I am, just staring and listening in absolute awe... People's passions feed my own curious mind, a mind that loves to see the beauty in everything. And a person who speaks of their passion brings beauty into that very subject, a perspective of devotion that is contagious.
