Five Things That Are Important to Me

A couple of days ago, I came across a blog post from one of my favourite bloggers, Diary of A Toronto Girl, titled "10 Things That Make Me Happy".

 Here is the link to her blog post:

After reading her post, I decided to put my own spin on this topic. Without further ado, here it is!

Family has always been important to me - even more so during these last couple of years. They support me in all endeavours, lift me up when I'm feeling down, and I know that I can confide in them in anything and everything. I'm grateful for all that they've done for me and I love them more than anyone else in the world.

Throughout the last four years, I've lost and gained friends. However, I have a core group of girlfriends whom I enjoy spending time with, girls who make my smiles bigger and my laughs louder when I'm with them. I can truly say that I'd take a bullet for ANY of my girlfriends, if need be.

Growing up, I've always enjoyed drawing and reading in my free time. As I grew older, I found these activities helpful in managing stress or heavy workloads. I still have my sketchbooks from high school and elementary school and I've slowly added books to the growing book shelf in my room.

Ever since I was a kid, I was always drawn towards books with city skylines. When I traveled to visit my friends, I would gaze longingly at their city's skyline, refusing to leave. I once told a friend, "Whenever I see a city skyline, I just want to sit in front of it and stare at it for the rest of the day."

5. TEA

I started drinking tea in my second year of high school, I always enjoy learning about different blends of tea, and its ingredients. In college, I challenged myself to try every tea available from Tim Hortons (so Canadian LOL) - and I enjoyed the challenge. Recently, I received a tin jar of Earl Grey tea from my friend in England, and I've been drinking a cup of Earl Grey tea almost every day!

In summary, these are five things that are important to me.
