Korean BBQ, a friend’s daughter giving me her artwork (feel bad for forgetting to grab the son’s), and some random event with a ton of people. #KoreanBBQ #BlizzCon #Art #FingerPainting #NotInSeattle

Family jenga and ice cream. I decided to be the jerk and go for the base right off the bat. #NotInSeattle #Jenga #IceCream

Meeting up with my extended family, they asked me, "What food do you want to eat?" I don't think I've said "Viet food" faster than I did today. #Food #NotInSeattle #VietnameseFood

I was going through photos and was reminded of this one trip. It was a weekday and I was pretty down, struggling to find a job and figuring out what I wanted to do with life. A buddy of mine said, "Let's go camping." Despite the windstorm going on in Seattle, we pack our gear and went. We headed over to Chelan. It was wet, raining, and cold. We chatted. We did some fishing for dinner (caught one fish the size of my hand). We meditated and prayed. That night, I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders.
.
The next morning was pretty amazing. The sun was out, looking over the lake. It was a new day. I was reminded of the beauty that exists in this world. We grabbed breakfast and headed back to Seattle.
.
That camping trip may have only been one night, but definitely changed the way I saw life.

Last home game of the regular season. Playoff bound. And pardon the construction. #Timbers #RCTID #PORvRSL #Portland #ProvidencePark #TimbersArmy

If it wasn't for my friend living out in Whidbey Island, not sure I'd see some of the beautiful sites and sounds around here. You're so close to the water. No busy streets to disrupt the peaceful calm. A gateway from the chaos that exists in the city.
.
I took someone I was dating at the time out to Whidbey before my friend's birthday out there. She asked, "Would you ever consider moving out here?" I said, "Not at the moment at least." Maybe someday I will... At least for a little bit.
