Last November, I had the opportunity to host a tea seminar for work. Even though it was for my job, it felt more like a personal project to me, one that I put a lot of heart and soul into. I was satisfied with the outcome, but because it was my first time organizing and running an event there were things I could have done better and lots of room for improvement. I wasn’t sure if I would ever get the chance to plan another class (at least at this job), but another opportunity sprung up randomly and the last two weeks were frantically devoted to putting together another tea class.

It’s been over six months now so I thought it was about time I introduce my new job…
The start of a new year always feels like a pause between everything that happened in the past to all that lays ahead in the future. There are regrets in what could have been but also hope for what can and will be. Usually I spend a lot of time suspended in this moment trying to neatly timeline my life in chronological order, but life is anything but neat and (chrono)logical. Everything is intertwined, looping together from ahead, below, up, and behind. So instead of trying to unravel what will forever be tangled, I am deciding to focus on today, whatever knots it may hold from the past, present, or future.
