Fall is the most beautiful of all the seasons in my opinion. Honestly, what’s better than wearing warm oversized sweaters and sweatshirts, drinking warm apple cider, the exquisite colors of the tree leaves, and last but most certainly not least the crisp air and the scented candles of the season.  The treats that come along with the season such as pumpkin spices, pumpkin pie, and apple crisp. Afternoon walks in the fall are by far my favorite with the brisk air and the crunch of leaves beneath my feet, they bring me so much joy. I usually play guitar with my window open and with an apple scented candle lit. The holidays the season brings are my favorites as well. I love the spooky feel of Halloween; kid’s anticipation unbearable, horror movie marathons, and dressing up as a funny character or a scary monster. You can’t forget about Thanksgiving, all my family does on that holiday is eat and sleep, what more could you ask for? This is why fall is my most favorite season. What is your favorite season?

A Whole New World

When immersing yourself into a whole new culture brings a new lifestyle, new language, new friends, new changes, and much much more. I thought I would share some attractions from all over the world that intrigue me/ places I’d love to visit. Starting with one of the many Tokyo capsule hotels. I would love to experience the feeling of staying in one, from what I’ve seen in pictures it seems very cozy and that is why I’ve always wanted to go visit one. Another sight in Japan I’d love to see is Mount Fuji. The sunrise from the top of the mountain is such an ethereal sight, I can only dream of experiencing it in real life one day. (Featured Image) Now, traveling to South Korea, the Seoraksan mountains. There are trails on the mountains and along your way, you’ll experience lush plant life, waterfalls, and animals along your hike. Another place in South Korea is Myeong-Dong which is a long street of clothing stores and food places.

Now going all the way to Thailand, another place I would want to go is the Patong islands. They are very tropical and relaxation oozes through the pictures. In addition, I would love to see the Grand Palace, built in 1782, it would be amazing to see the history the palace brings. And the last two places are located in Germany and Ireland. Honestly, I would be ecstatic to visit anywhere within those countries because my ancestors are from there so it would be great to see the places I’ve come from. So, I don’t have any certain locations I would like to visit there. Now, I’d like to ask you, what places would you like to visit?

Magnificent Melodies

I think having a diverse music taste really opens your mind. Exposing yourself to new things that you end up enjoying can really inspire you. My music taste is so diverse, I listen to pretty much anything. Liking all kinds of different music opens a door in your mind to so many differing cultures. If you are a person that plays an instrument it really helps when you are writing new music because of the diversity in what you listen to, you can take inspiration from virtually all over the world. Kinds of music I suggest you try out are Korean pop, Indie, Chinese pop, and Japanese rock. Latino music has gotten very popular over the years, but if you have yet to listen, I highly recommend trying it out! Music is a very easy way to connect yourself with different cultures if you adopt a broad taste in music.

Labels

All my life, for as long as I can remember, I’ve always hated labels. Why are they necessary? Why do we use words to separate ourselves from one another, we are all humans after all. The use of labels to put down other’s culture is intolerable, why does it matter if a person is a different race? The number of racially intolerant people has me truly amused. I cannot comprehend why others put people down because of something they can’t change. The most pitiful excuse a typical racist “American” has to say is, “This is our America, we were here first.” However, this couldn’t be any farther from the truth. The Native Americans were here before us but nobody wants to talk about that. Their people are still living in poverty and have some of the highest suicide rates, and because of who? Us. I feel that this whole issue blew up just a few years ago. There is just so much hate in the world. We need to learn the definition of unity once again, we need to all come together, we all should be at peace with one another despite our differing opinions. Because after all, we only have each other. We are all human, don’t forget that.
