I received an unexpected message the other day: It was my six-year anniversary with WordPress! I have been typing about my thoughts, feelings, adventures, trials and tribulations, and successes for 72 whole months. Where has time gone?! I used to do a yearly review of my blog, but eventually life got in the way and… Continue reading Happy 6th Birthday to Sarawhitmanythoughts!
I actually cannot believe it has been a whole week since I last posted. Time flies when you’re escaping your problems by crashing with a friend in New York! On a serious note, my week in New York actually felt like a vacation (It wasn’t, though. I worked my normal work schedule). I was able… Continue reading When in doubt, I visit NYC
The winter is going by so fast. We are already more than half way through February and while I am shocked, I can’t be mad. Each day that passes means we are getting closer to summer! And if you know me, you know I thrive during that season. With how fast time is going by,… Continue reading The good and the bad — it’s all part of life
Valentine’s Day is just about here! Whether you’re the type of person who loves going all out for the holiday for friends or a significant other, or someone who absolutely despises the holiday and sneers at corporate America every year for cashing in on love (like me), the day will probably look a bit different… Continue reading 10 Valentine’s Day ideas during a pandemic
I was itching to write something-travel related this week, but I was contemplating if I really wanted to write about travel during the pandemic for the sole reason that it’s quite depressing. As I was scrolling through travel news, though, I came across something that intrigued me. It has to do with travel restrictions in… Continue reading Will there be a red light for Amsterdam’s Red Light District?
In a year that I’m saying, “Yolo” with my creative side (hence why some of my New Year’s resolutions are to post three times a month on my YouTube channel and post weekly on my blog with no rules about the subject matter), I have decided to say “Yolo” and post something way different on… Continue reading Read to learn my quiz answers
A few years ago I wrote about the most perfect summer day: I woke up and water skied with my dad and grandfather in the morning, and then ended up in New York City in the afternoon to see Les Misérables on Broadway with my grandfather and grandma. Les Misérables is easily one of my favorite Broadway shows. It’s simply… Continue reading Why Les Misérables is a reminder to never give up hope
I want to preface this post by saying I was super nervous to ski during the pandemic. It turned out to be a lovely time. It’s winter and there’s only one good thing that comes with that: ski (and snowboard) season. My awesome dad (also known as Rippin’ Russ while on the mountain) planned a… Continue reading What it’s really like to ski during the COVID-19 pandemic
In my last blog post, we spoke about reasons behind making New Year’s resolutions. This time around, I want to touch on how to make New Year’s resolutions that we can actually achieve (which I also spoke about in my latest YouTube video). Yes, I did say that I normally don’t make New Year’s resolutions.… Continue reading How to plan and achieve realistic New Year’s resolutions
I’ve never been one to make a New Year’s resolution(s). I think it’s just too much pressure to put on yourself with the possibility of being disappointed at the end of the year. And who wants to end a year by being mad at themselves for not reaching whatever far-fetched goal they planned? I definitely… Continue reading My First Time Making New Year’s Resolutions
