Days get brighter and cloudier

As the minutes pass, the fog thickens amongst the mountains and my home. I wonder how the ride to work will be. You’d think as the day begins, the fog would lessen. But between each moment I look out my window, it seems to only grow. A mysterious day indeed… It’s Friday and I lookContinue reading “Days get brighter and cloudier”

It gets grey in these mountains,

to think I would ever complain about them is nonsense; at least that’s what I tell myself while reading back to old Grey L.A. posts. Last night, I watched one of my favorite animes, Mushi-shi. It’s a very beautiful anime, I highly suggest it. It put me in this sort of appreciative mood of theContinue reading “It gets grey in these mountains,”

Should I Be Ashamed?

That some days, I don’t want to write. The non-negotiables I write on my wall that I stare at in despair, should I be ashamed? Balancing it all is a circus act on it’s own, can one forgive me for wanting to run away from it all or will you turn your head? In shameContinue reading “Should I Be Ashamed?”

My first week in my new home

It’s my first week in my new home and I couldn’t feel more content. As any other Monday, I awoke at 5:30AM; my love Haku, laying next to me in slumber. I made coffee because it’s a cold and foggy day and I think of the clouds that surround the mountains and imagine I’m sittingContinue reading “My first week in my new home”

As my life continues to amaze me,

I wonder what else it has in store. I think about when I first started this blog, and moved out here to the west coast; how different it was then. I think it was on Thursdays I’d post. And it was always some sort of update on my life; what I was eating, what I’veContinue reading “As my life continues to amaze me,”

Here’s a late post to add to the collection

Since I’ve come to terms with my current situation (and yes, it took a little bit), I’ve decided to actually state what is happening. So, my lovely readers, I, Natalia Lee, am giving up my first apartment ever. Yes, yes, I know. Why would I do that? Well, if you must know, I never trulyContinue reading “Here’s a late post to add to the collection”

I had the chance to write this yesterday.

But instead laid in my bed and thought about it until there were no more thoughts to be had. Same goes for this morning: My alarm woke me up the time it usually does—even my body was ready to awake; yet I stayed where I was; just thinking about it—until there were no more thoughtsContinue reading “I had the chance to write this yesterday.”

Vacation or Practice? Love or Perseverance?

The days have been getting harder and easier to bear as they go by. My heart grows weak from being away from my love, yet goes stronger from all the cardio I’ve been doing to distract myself. I think back to almost a year ago when I spent my first day with him and howContinue reading “Vacation or Practice? Love or Perseverance?”

It hasn’t been easy,

being away from home. It’s funny how home was always a concept I used to ponder. And if it actually had any meaning to me. Nowadays, it seems to be the only place I say I want to go. Funny how things work like that. Home to me now is laying back in my apt,Continue reading “It hasn’t been easy,”

Lifes full of bumps Pt.2

Between mountains & roads,I find myself less alone in these times.I fall in line with purpose but now more than ever; action–that took so hard to find. Running from things that will never help me seem to call my phone constantly having me in circles running back again. Life’s full of bumps and that’s aContinue reading “Lifes full of bumps Pt.2”
