It’s been months, hasn’t it? Major update before I begin on what is the most amazing day that I ever had in 2018 thus far (Aside from last Sunday):
*My eyes were indeed open when I took this..*
- I am now the employee of the month at my job. Not only that, but it has been officially over a year since I started working at Target Starbucks. It has been some ups and downs, but it was worth it, overall.
- Still trying to get out on my own… I’ll make it on my own, someday soon, hopefully before the year is out, or before the start of next Spring.
- The main reason why I haven’t been on here for months, is cause I’ve been dealing with my own anxiety and depression. Some days I’ve been doing well, but other days… it’s a struggle. As of recently, I learned that traveling really soothes and takes my stresses and anxieties away. Also, music helps, as well.
- I’ll try to get more posts in on all three of my blogs, as much as I can per week. If I can’t, then my anxieties and/or depression might’ve gotten to me, and I will need to take some time to recharge.
Anyway, enough bout that..
Two days ago, I met up with my best friend, whom I haven’t seen since college! We decided to hang out in Chinatown for the very first time (2nd time in months for me, since Matt and I went there during the Chinese New Year celebration. Possibly a while since he went there)!
*Alex and I. We somehow decided to dress up in the same colors unexpectedly. Great minds think alike!*

This ice cream place that we went to was amazing! I never tried Thai rolled ice cream before (Let along MATCHA ice cream), but let’s just say.. I loved it! Highly recommend this place!
The next stop that we went to was this clothing shop. I always wanted one of these Chinese dresses, so I had to try one on! Now I know which size I am, so I can finally buy one next month!
The next stop that we checked out was this restaurant called Triple Crown. The food was really good (..and I got a chance to teach Alex some Chinese, as well! It’s going well.. he also taught me some German, too)
After that was over, we decided to go to see Hell Fest. The movie was really good.. a few jump scares, but still really good! Chinatown will be the start of our travel adventures together. 😀 We ended up being silly, dancing and singing again, like old times.

After the movie ended, we decided to walk back to the red line to Chinatown. Before we left, we decided to try out Bubble Tea
*Taro Bubble Tea**Sea Salt Bubble Tea*
This was my very first time trying out Bubble Tea.. and I gotta say: It’s very tasty! Next time Alex and I (..or whoever I go with) head to Chinatown, we’re getting some Bubble Tea til our stomachs can’t take it anymore!
Before we left Chinatown, we came across this sign. The grammar was so bad, we almost laugh so loudly.. we decided to walk away, while… kinda holding our laughter in until we almost left the main entrance. Gotta say, Tuesday was the best day ever for the both of us. One place down, many more to come!
Until next time, Chinatown!
