So I just wrote this poem today (for a class assignment) from the perspective of a tattoo. Tattooing is extremely important in many, if not all, Oceanic cultures. It’s not simply a piece of art on human canvas, but each line, design, and shading has meaning and value. A person’s tattoo carries history, genealogy, culture. … Continue reading Tap tap tap
Look at this picture. My cool Frida Kahlo socks and a cozy mystery with a quirky and fun name. The only good thing to come out of this is I got a great picture from it.

I give this book 5 out of 5 ★★★★★. It's that good, seriously. It is difficult to pin this book down to a certain genre.

I think 25 books is a modest, humble, and an overall realistic goal to set … Continue reading Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
So Independence Day in the U.S. was yesterday, and I decided to make a post on instagram that I usually wouldn't publish. You can see/read below: Throughout the years I enjoyed the 4th of July.

When I decided to attend university at Oahu and pursue a degree in Pacific Islands Studies, I have never been more happy and proud of myself. I was so elated that I finally found something that felt right for me, and the confidence that this is what I should be studying is a feeling I never quite felt before. … Continue reading Rambling (PI Writing Edition)
I haven't posted an entry since December of last year...YIKES. There goes my dedication and plan to regularly post on this blog. I would give the 'ol, "I was super busy with school and hanging out, completely forgot" shtick, but honestly I'm gonna pin it all on me simply being lazy. This blog's dashboard is … Continue reading So yeeah…
