I Need to Rest

I Need to Rest

As of the time of this writing, the evening of August 17, I still have a stuff nose that’s messed with my body temperature the whole day, and I’ve broken a chair, a day after the realization just how much of my summer was defined by work. Throw in a sneaky “Why am I doing […]

Wrap-Up: Freshman of Life Lettering Series

Wrap-Up: Freshman of Life Lettering Series

I’ve wrapped up the Freshman of Life series! *throws confetti everywhere* If you’d been following me since January of 2017, you would know about my Love Letters 2.17 series, and while it was fun, it was also so much repetitive work that tired me out so much I was burnt out for months. I told […]

Highlights: July 2017

Third time’s the charm! I actually remembered that I had a post to write, so I wasn’t rushing to write this *happy dance* Next month’s blogging goal: write more blog posts. The Highlights 1. I went for a visa at the beginning of the month and it was hilarious. Remember how I had broken my […]

Highlights: June 2017

June was eventful, and I am going to use to that “eventful” as my excuse for not being productive and getting this post out on time. The Highlights 1. So the first week of July passed in a depressed funk, and then on the second weekend, my mom sent me off to a camp, and […]

Freshman of Life Lettering Series

Freshman of Life Lettering Series

Shannelle, another lettering series? Really? Yes. Call me a lettering series addict, but I love working on them during my breaks. I personally enjoy limiting my options for content (and this time around, the style!) because it shakes up how I normally do things. Related: Announcing: Love Letters 2.17 This time around, I was inspired […]

Stationery Stores in Osaka

Stationery Stores in Osaka

When the family got cheap tickets to Osaka, my first reaction was to get really excited because I’d get to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Osaka. My second thought was that I should buy some stationery while I was there and research the hell out of it. But then, I’m really not […]

Highlights: May 2017

I can’t believe it’s only been five days since school ended because it feels like so much longer. Or maybe it’s just because I’m back home and it’s easy to slip back into everything.  I fell back into my lazy schedule at home in two seconds, and it’s hard for me to accept that it’s […]

Out and About: Guilin

Out and About: Guilin

After a hectic first half of a semester, I was desperate for spring break. When my friend proposed going to Guilin, I was game. To be honest, I was just desperate for a break from school work, so I hadn’t done any research into Guilin. I’ll always be a lazy traveler for life, but this was […]

Love Letters 2.17 Wrap-Up: Mistakes and Lessons Learned

Love Letters 2.17 Wrap-Up: Mistakes and Lessons Learned

In February 2017, I posted one lettering piece every day, and that amount of work that went into it was just insane. I joke that I tried to do the opposite of dying out of boredom on winter break by giving myself a lot of work, and well, I achieved just that. *mentally shudders at […]

Announcing: Love Letters 2.17

I’m so happy to finally be able to tell you what I’ve spent my January slaving over *victory dance* It was just after finals, and I was wondering what I was going to do with my long break. I remembered how I had always wanted to do a lettering series, as well as introduce my […]
