What is something you think everyone should do more of? 💭⠀
for me, it’s read! i always block out time for reading - i feel like it’s just good for the soul. i don’t think our culture today values it enough but i can’t even describe how amazing i think reading has been for me as a person.⠀
and, of course, i think more people should take the leap to work for themselves 🌟✊🏻⠀
what do you think people don’t do enough of? 🌹

chưa bao giờ hai đứa có ý niệm gì về những thứ đang ở ngoài kia, sau mỗi khung cửa. chúng chỉ chắc chắn rằng nếu hôm nay không làm vậy thì, một ngày kia, chúng sẽ hối tiếc. và, chúng chắc chắn rằng ở một nơi kia, sẽ luôn có một cánh cửa trực chờ được mở ra và một con đường cho chúng trải bước.
we never knew what’s there behind all those doors we have walked through. we just knew for sure that if we didn’t do it, we would, someday, be regretful and that there will always be, somewhere, a door for us to open and a path for us to walk on.
Your love is like a solid, unchanging rock. thank you for always being there for me. today, on your birthday, i want to let you know how very special you are to me. happy sweet birthday, i love you 😘💕🎂 @jimacalinao
So work has been going well on the extension so far with all the foundations getting dug out, but iiving on a building site is pretty interesting. we currently have a bridge which we have to walk over to get to our front door and the interior of our house is not photograph worthy. i walk around our house at the moment looking forward to the day when we can put all our items in place and fully appreciate them! .
this piece of art for example (a replica of lichtenstein’s pop art) was picked up when we were in vietnam travelling around hanoi with our close friends, before any kids were on board! we love our interior to be a representation of us and our family and this in particular holds great memories - when we got this we had our first experience of a tuk tuk in the craziness of hanoi traffic and sampled the “amazing” chaca la vong (grilled fish in tumeric, chilli and dill) a famous vietnamese dish...yum yum!
we have a lot of artwork, some of our own and some we have collected over the years and this is one of them. although not the real thing, it is all hand painted by a local of the vietnamese community and we watched it happening! every time we walk by it, you remember the story behind it! .
not long till we can get all our memories in place to tell a new story...4 months to go! .

"có 1 cảm giác thật lạ của 2 đứa sau 1 năm xa hà nội, đó là 1 cảm giác hồi tưởng xen lẫn sự thờ ơ, đối với những nơi 2 đứa đã qua, đối với những người 2 đứa đã cùng dành thời gian trước lúc đi."
"hanoihigh 1 năm trước, 2 đứa cũng không có 1 tương lai rõ ràng vạch ra cho tuổi 18 để đi theo, hanoihigh 1 năm sau, cũng không có 1 điều gì để 2 đứa dựa vào đó để tự tin bước vào tuổi 19:) nhưng 2 đứa vẫn sẽ tiếp tục lưu trữ những khoảnh khắc ‘hà nội’ nhất qua lăng kính (kính mắt và ống kính máy ảnh) của 2 đứa."
---------- "we made a sort of deal that we would try our best to spend half of our last high school year at school and the other half on randomly found rooftops of hanoi. this was a (fatally) bold step, since it might affect our attendance records at school and eventually our teachers' rec lets and shit, but turned out to be a unique part of our life that we wouldn’t trade for anything."
"coming back home after a year away living abroad, both of us have a mixed feeling of nostalgia and indifference."
"our studying abroad has given us a realization about our n***d thoughts on adulthood and everything in between. this summer we’re going to reflect on our times together and apart." #youth#teenage#girls#highschool#hustle#bustle#city#life#lifestyle#cityescape#urban#blogging#bloggers#prettythings#tbt#photography#rooftop#urbex#adventure#venture#illustration#sketching#arts#artsy#blogs
