Traveler Tattoo

View this post on Instagram

This year has been all about finding myself and taking risks. My journey led me to unforgettable experiences that will remain priceless for an eternity. So as a result, I got some new ink. A paper airplane as a constant reminder of the most incredible year of my life. If you want to go somewhere in life don't think "just go." βœŒπŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ŠπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œβ€πŸŒ΄πŸŒ __________________________________ #chayadventures #wanderlusting #wanderlust #wander #travelbug #traveling #travel #travelblog #instatravel #instagood #amazingplaces #traveladdict #adventure #greenhearttravel #beautifuldestinations #tesol #teachabroad #teachenglish #blogger #thailandluxe #thailand #southeastasia #asia #kohtao #tattoo #traveltattoo

A year… What the heck?!

Well this is a little embarrassing. It has been over a year since I have written anything. I want to write. In fact I have a lot to say. Just not quite sure where to begin. I’ve written so many drafts of different things and keep meaning to get back to them. Somehow time got out of control and a freaking year passed… I’m 26 now. My hair is no longer long or black. I have a new car, new job and blah blah. One exciting chapter of my life ended last year and currently I am on the next. Either way I’ve been feeling pretty inspired lately so stay tuned.

My blog may take a little turn in its usual direction & I’m cool with that. Until then have a fantastic days my loves.

Thought of the day

“I don’t want to wait until I’m ‘established’ to be able to live my life. Instead, I’m thinking that these kind of moments are exactly what will shape me as a person and point me in the right direction to become more than just established. I want to live my life knowing that I did exactly that. I lived.”

Until next time Canada

So here it goes. I made it through check in, checked my bags in and made it flawlessly through customs! Now I am sitting here like a dope crying my eyes out. I’ve said my final goodbyes, cried, cried and cried some more and made sure to eat all my favourite foods before today! Last thing left to do? BOARD THAT DAMN PLANE!

Batmobile in the TDOT!

Last night was interesting to say the least. Suicide Squad is currently being filmed in Toronto and since I practically work walking distance from the majority of the locations the cast and crew have been working, I decided it would be a perfect opportunity to attempt to get in on some of the action. My boyfriend and I spent quite a few hours waiting for Yonge St. to transform into the movie set that everyone had been excited to see. Although we did not get a chance to see any of the actors/actresses in the movie we were lucky enough to see both the Batmobile and The Jokers car! Not going to lie, it was pretty awesome to see Toronto turn into something that you rarely get a chance to see unless you’re in Hollywood.

5 Reasons Why Being a Nice Girl Blows

Yeah, I am that girl…The one who is overly friendly, will find humour in most of the jokes you tell, feel guilty refusing to do you a favour and will probably never confront you if you hurt my feelings. I am what society would refer to as “The Nice Girl” or maybe even “The Girl Next door” (unfortunately nothing like Elisha Cuthbert). But more importantly, I am that girl who, especially if you are of the opposite sex, will most likely send you all the wrong signals. Being the nice girl definitely has its up’s. I mean, for one, we never lack in the friend department. This is simply because most people enjoy our company since we possess such a positive outlook on just about everything. As a result, our social life can be quite full of excitement and events. We can always count on someone to lend us a hand. People usually have a hard time saying no to a bright eyed, smiling, friendly gal. In addition, what is even more satisfying about being nice is that we have the ability to make others happy. That in itself is a reward. However, like all things, being that nice girl (or person in general) has its disadvantages. Let me explain:

Know Your Worth

I have been a little hesitant to write about this. In fact it has been a while since I have wrote anything at all. However, I think that there is valuable information that should be shared and rememberedΒ daily. The last few weeks I have given a lot of thought to the expectations that many of us have of others and how those expectations can influence not just ones actions/decision making but more importantly their personality. Although many may not realize it, I think it is safe to say we have all been slaves to someones expectations at some point or another. I also think the reason behind this is largely due to our good ole friend Mr.Emotions.
