Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #161: Feet and Shoes


This week, on Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #161, Ann-Christine assigned, in my opinion, a rather strange topic – Feet and Shoes.

Immediately, this picture sprang to mind. I shot this during my last visit to China in 2018 when I visited the museum in my hometown. It was quite an interesting tour as I got to see the transition from eastern culture to western culture. Though they look real, these are actually plastic figures to illustrate the point of opening the first shopping mall in China.

Is it weird I still have these boots? Even after 5 years? I should’ve thrown them away long ago – they are so incredibly heavy that each step I take feels like I’m dragging bricks. It’s so hard to find winter shoes that fit these days.

Wordless Wednesday: Storm is Coming…And it came


Photo of the Day!


My mom has been on a craze lately. Every weekend since Christmas, she had been calling her friends in Salt Lake City, persuading them to go out. We (meaning me) would be the guide. Continue reading “Photo of the Day!”

Snowy Monday

I woke up to the noise of snow plow this morning as my neighbor broke out his plow for the first time this winter season. Continue reading “Snowy Monday”

Winter Wonderland


It’s been snowing here for last 24 hours and it’s beginning to look more like winter. It’s been a while since we had so much snow here. Continue reading “Winter Wonderland”

A Slow Day


I feel like today is going especially slow. I don’t know why. Last night, after suffering from a stomachache all night, I went to bed only to find myself sleeping and waking up repeatedly through the night and finding myself at a different place on the bed every time.

It’s weird, right? I wonder if I should be worried. Nah, maybe I’m having a strange week, that’s all. Maybe just some pre-semester jitters.

My aunt is currently downstairs cleaning the floors while I was supposed to wash my mom’s car. That’s not going to happen.

Outside is dark and cloudy again and it’s freezing cold, only 39°F. I thought there’s not supposed to be a storm for the next 7 days. The weatherman lied, wouldn’t be the first time. I checked the weather and it’s supposed to snow and rain on Monday. How am I supposed to go to Salt Lake City to pick up my paycheck?

On the bright side, after almost a month, I finally sold my mom’s statistics book and after two days, I finally applied for that summer audit position at American Express. I’m crossing my fingers and hope the HR will return my email soon, preferably Monday, and give me an interview. Until then, all I can do is cross my finger and not jinx it.

First Snow


Today is the first snow storm of the season. I am both excited and nervous because I might be driving through some dangerous roads today. I am so jealous of my aunt and cousin right now because due to the storm, they don’t need to go to school. Continue reading “First Snow”
