Sugarpet sees cherry blossoms for her first time! Pad thai from a food truck, new shoes, and desserts at the end of the night!


















~*~*~*~ Selfie of the day! ~*~*~*~*

Hello again! *takes a sip of hot cocoa*
Hi! Sorry about the not-so-personal posts lately! I know I've been posting a bunch of things but it helps me get in the habit of actively posting on days I don't want to spend hours editing something special.
 But not too worry! That means I have TONS of quality photos and adventures to share with you! (no seriously. I still have tons of photos from a year ago I still have yet to post..)  I tend to take hundreds of pics of every single thing I do because I guess I'm going through a weird phase in my life where I feel alive again, and literally everything around me...... inspires me.
Life is so special to me right now and it feels great to be in awe of everything, but I can admit I've been getting a little too obsessed.. I take out my notebook and write about my surroundings , I document all 5 senses.. Whether it be the taste of my food, or the scent in the air... I pick up rocks and leaves and pick flowers and I save them. . I seal them between pages because I feel close to them.  and.. this is all great and all and I feel like this is something I want to do forever. To be in "awe" all the time.

But.. I need to figure out how to take these things and actually post them in a organized manner. As soon a I come home from an eventful day, I need to get in the habit of just posting things as soon as I get home, while feelings are fresh in my head. Otherwise I'm just left with tons of notes in my journal.. and thousands of photos. Which is great....

But, memory cards and internal hard drives don't have infinity space.  They're also pretty expensive too. The thoughts and doodles I jot down are great to see, but what if my journal becomes lost? What if I get old and become blind, or deaf?  Or something happens where my mind can't take information in very well anymore..?
...
 If there is ever the chance of me not being able to relive what tales I've documented in my life- then I want someone else to be able to. I do this because when I feel alive, I feel passionate about everything I do, and this alone is precious and deserves to be shared. I want someone who may be going through a dull time in their life; to go through my posts and feel somewhat inspired to explore their soul and to be in "wonder" about their life as much as I do. To be proud of where they are and what feelings they feel, even if they aren't entirely happy, I feel like people should write what makes them lose sleep at night and what makes their heart ache. It really helps you find yourself, and it's wonderful when you do. It really is.

I am blabbing away again but here are a bunch of photos from yesterday's adventure!  Also, i think I'll start adding timestamps again!
.....
...

10:00 am : Babe wakes me up, but I fall back asleep
12:00 pm: Baby wakes me up again, literally pulling  me out of bed this time. He brings me a cup of orange juice, and Squishy (his dog) brings me a sock. We have a little sock play and I realize  how late we are to meet up with my boyfriend's dad! I jump in the shower and get ready~

1:30 pm: Walked to the train. It was a half hour ride to downtown so I took photos of people in the streets to kill time

2:15  pm: We met up with his dad and we walked around in search for food because we were all hungry and haven't eaten breakfast yet! We decided on food trucks and I HAD to get Pad Thai because I love it and I was curious to see how good it'd be coming from a foodtruck. I was incredibly surprised and later learned how big the foodtruck competition is here- that they actually are really popular among the locals because not only is it affordable ( my huge takeout plate was SIX dollars) but food here is cooked fresh and sooooo delicious.



We also got coconut juice, and Filipino mango juice! it was nostalgic because i haven't had it for awhile. <3




*photos that are slightly smaller or have lower quality are taken from my phone!*

2:45 pm: We walked to the park and ate our food on a bench! The view was pretty. A lot of interesting people watching too.



My boyfriend got mexican food lol 


Portland has these cool "bubbling" water fountains! Their tap water is also safe to drink and is fluoride free!

3:00 pm: We finished eating, and walked a little further to find pretty cherry blossom spots to take photos! I am usually pretty okay with taking photos in public but I was really uncomfortable or nervous in a bunch of these because this random dude kept following us and watching... and making comments.. I mean it was nice of him to say compliments but to be yelling things like "WOW SWEETY YOU SO BEAUTIFUL" and he even took out his own camera and started taking photos too which was a little creepy. He said things like:
" HEY CAN YOU TURN A LITTLE THIS WAY PLEASE"

It was just a bit uncomfortable lol but I think he got the clue when we ignored him and we found a new location! Everything was okay after that. ^___^ Here are a bunch of photos!



















* showing some leg*
lmfao hey do you guys know how awkward it is when the wind blows hard and you show a little too much leg and your boyfriend's dad is watching you and you're supposed to be innocent kawaii girl and evey time it happened I got super embarrassed , force shut my skirt slit and blushed so hard oh my goodness


they had these rocks in the ground with quotes and haikus etched in them! It made the area feel so peaceful~













We walked a bit more and thought it would be a good idea to go up the stairs and take a photo from a higher height! Little did we know... we were probably in a spot where homeless people like to sleep and....
leave their underwear on the ground
lol





 we headed back down after a few photos~


lol

3:45 pm: Started heading our way out of the park and there were the hugest huskies oh my goodness I wanted to hug them. There were these two girls holding their leash and it was so funny because the dogs kept pulling towards the water fountains for a drink- but there was a sign there that said the water wasn't safe to drink! (probably because the water was recycled)





4:00 pm: We went walking around and stopped by for a drink a a pub called "The dancing Lion" ! It was really loud and busy in there and all of the saint patricks decorations were up! I got a realllly yummy passion fruit mojito! It was sooooo good! I love mojitos, and this is the best I've had so far I think.
We quickly left after our drinks because we couldn't really talk to each other since it was sooooo loud! It seems like a great place, we just picked the wrong spot to have conversations in without yelling haha




We left and started walking around a little more we stopped by Starbucks! ...
There's a lot of statues of animals on the way, and I found flyers taped onto them by...... "anonymous" lol
It pretty much says that people should wrap these statues with warm blankets and outerwear for the homeless to have to keep warm in the cold! 



Thanks to tumblr, I tried out the cotton candy frappe! It's a vanilla bean frappuccino with two extra pumps of raspberry syrup! It came out a really cute pink ah!!!!! <33333 I usually  get a matcha green tea frappe.
I made a lil photo thing for tumblr heheheh

my boyfriend in  ~*~* deep thought *~*~

4:30 pm : we hopped on the train again and headed to Ground Kontrol! A gaming bar filled with  about a 100 oldscool arcade games, and pin ball machines! It's one of our go-to places when we're bored and we've been here a few times- it's always so fun!


6:00 pm  we went to the mall and went hunting around for shoes! It's a pretty big mall so we browsed through a lot of stores! We were looking for a rain jacket for my boyfriend.. and his dad bought a hat hehe. We walked a few blocks down and went to Macys, then finally decided on something at Nordstorm Rack. It's like the discount version of normal Nordstorm., which is known to be pretty pricy!~

AND LOL I WAS SO EMBARRASSED BECAUSE I TOOK OFF MY SHOE AND I HAD A HOLD IN MY SOCK NOOOOO IT WASN'T THERE WHEN I FIRST PUT THE SOCK ON THAT MORNING!!! I THINK IT WAS JUST FROM ALL THE WALKING??? IDK LOL


10:00 pm Then we headed to my boyfriend's dad's hotel at the Hilton! I was sooooo excited because my boyfriend's mom made my favorite brownies, and not to mention yummy snickerdoodles and peanutbutter balls! ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!! We have like two big tupperwares worth! We can freeze half of it for later in the month :3 These are going to be so great with my coffee and tea in the morning, yay! I just ate four pieces today HEHEHEHE *wipes crumbs off face*

( me in perfect chocolate heaven bliss) 

Trying on his dad's pilot hat ^___^

The elevators were so faaAAaAAaaAncYYyY


11:00 pm We JUST missed the train, we tried to run for it but we still missed it hehe so waited for next train and I took a few photos to pass the time and thought a lot as usual~
















We sat along the edge of a gate and a lot of  people passed by.. Some casually, others in a rush, I love people watching and observing the way they carry themselves because I like to wonder about what they may be going through, or how they're feeling and it's inspiring to me. There are those who walk with a beat to their step, and there are those who seem to struggle taking the next. Dragging their feet with their heads faced down and shoulders hunched over..
It reminds me that people have their own shoes to walk in and it makes me feel less alone! And not in a depressing way at all just a happy comforting relief to know that we all equally have a place in this world i don't know
 I love observing their mannerisms because I love the honest, raw, feelings I feel from it.
A few months ago I jot down a few scenarios that inspire me in my sketchbook! (I should do this more often but just so you know, I just quickly jot down words that describe things so it may seem really messy but it makes sense to me so that's all that matters ^_^
(you really don't need to read the text in the scrollbox it's just me blabbing away again lol so I put it in a scroll box to save space lol and made it pretty tiny because I feel a little weird that people may read this lol
ALSO BTW IF YOU THINK THE THINGS I WRITE ARE ABOUT YOU SPECIFICALLY,
IT ISN'T. IT REALLY ARE THINGS THAT I JUST FIND INSPIRING, I AM NOT GIVING ANY SPECIFIC PERSON A MESSAGE, I DON'T DWELL ON PEOPLE OR FEEL AS IF I NEED TO DEDICATE ANYTHING I WRITE TO ONE PERSON. IF I DID NEED TO, I WOULD SAY SO. I PROMISE THESE ARE JUST SIMPLY IDEAS . DON'T EVER ASSUME THE THINGS I WRITE ARE ABOUT YOU. BECAUSE IT ISN'T. ITS FOR EVERYBODY AND ANYBODY WHO CAN RELATE TO IT. AND THAT'S IT. ~
-When a persons eyebrows burrow when they're  trying to understand something.
- Girls getting over/fighting to let go of  someone to better themselves, because she knows that's what's best for her. Being with this person caused more pain than happy.  tying her hair up in a pony tail;  rolling her dark berry lips; walking out her front door and taking a deep breathe; being strong; shes aware that she could bump into him again; keeping her cellphone close
- badass blunt, cold, hard-headed girl visibly shaking, trembling, convulsing in tears, holding her breathe and gasping for air in between, with a single hand shading her face, to hide her eyes blurred with tears, and another hand with its palm turned toward her stomach, elbows tense, and close to body














 11:30 pm: finally on our way home on the train!












And here is a photo my boyfriend took of me the next morning.. He always takes photos of me while I'm sleeping. But this shows how long of a day it was! Aloooooot of walking in ankle boots! I passed out hehe zzzzzz OKAY TIME FOR BED omg i types so much again o well goodnight~<3
