Your Feelings Are Valid

     Your feelings are valid. Always remember that. We exist in microcosms and macrocosms, affected by the events of the wider world, and by the small day to day occurrences of our personal lives. Yes, there are terrible things happening in the world, and yes, there are people out there who likely have it far worse than you do. But that does not negate what you feel. That does not mean you aren't allowed to feel sad or scared or angry or anxious. Your feelings matter.

Outfit - Tropical Storms

     Summer in Hong Kong means heat and humidity; but that humidity also means rain. And by rain, I mean torrential tropical thunderstorms! It hasn't stopped raining for the past week, and is scheduled to continue for the next one too. Since I finally got my camera back from the repair centre, I was ready to start outfit posts again, but the weather forced me to take my photos indoors again, with my tiny room and less than ideal lighting, but I think these pictures came out a little better than expected after editing, honestly (yes, I'm standing on the bed, it's the only way to get everything in the light!). I got this top a while back, and it's really versatile to mix and match with different bottoms. The rain makes it cool enough again to wear jeans from time to time (by cool, I still mean mid-20s degrees), which I'd been avoiding a few weeks ago in the sweltering heat. And these shoes were a recent purchase; I like the fun print for the summer, and they're super easy to slip on and off, while being just a bit sturdier than sandals, or a good option for situations requiring closed-toe shoes (work, temple visits etc).

Summer Tag

     The temperature is rising, and so too is the humidity, at least here in Hong Kong anyway. This does mean some tropical thunderstorms and typhoons, but overall, the weather is hot, sunny, and humid, and I'm having to get used to being a walking bucket of sweat again for the next couple of months. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with summer, as it's normally when I travel most, and I like being on the beach or in the ocean, or able to spend some more time outside in general. What I don't like is being said walking bucket of sweat, nor the bug bites that accompany this weather. So, I thought this would be an appropriate time to answer some summer tag questions.
