Give me a bit of your Wine

After graduating from my highschool, I vowed to never ever wear anything maroon/wine red/burgundy/etc again. I lived in a school where we had maroons as part of uniform colour and walls/doors dedicated to the colour, I was quite sick of it by my third year of highschool. Then I moved to Hamilton, attended to McMaster University, and there it was again, our Uni's main mascot colour: maroon. You can imagine me throwing myself onto my knees and making a roar out of it, hahaha.

But here I am now, four years later, so in love with this colour to the point where it's almost dominating my closet. So like that saying goes, never say never!

SuperCrawl 2012

Every second Friday of each month, Hamilton would host an Artcrawl event. It's an event where a section of James Street North's art gallery, thrift stores, music stores, and etc would open to the public 'till late at night and show their diversity + creativity. However for the month of September, instead of an Artcrawl, Hamilton hosted an annual event called the Supercrawl. Basically it's the bigger and louder version of the Artcrawl.

I didn't go exploring as much as I did last year, but I was able to catch Born Raffian's and K'naan's live show! :D

Out and About

One of my favourite things about adventuring is the sense of accomplishments at the end of the day. I'm deathly afraid of falling to my inevitable doom and the occasional heights, but being able to challenge myself and getting over the fear... It's exhilarating!

At one point, we decided to be adventurous and took a couple of detours. Essentially, we end up leading ourselves to an ultimate path where we had to cross a river by walking on a not-so-stable tree. I wished I took a picture of it, but I was more worried about my camera falling into the river than anything else hahaha. Either way, the simple (and exhausting) hiking trip taught me many little things in life that I seem to have forgotten. To say the least, it was quite therapeutic and I'm at eased.
