IRL Travels: Liberty and Prosperity, and NYC

What a difference a year can make… just… wow.

Exactly one year ago today, I had no idea what coronaviruses were and excitedly embarked on an aircraft alone to venture off on my first ever international trip. I chose to take my first steps off of Canadian soil in the good ol’ USA. More specifically, the great State of New Jersey (which gets far too much hate, in my opinion) and a whirlwind walking tour of New York City.

The major goal of the trip was to meet some cool online buddies in reality for the first time. I was also in the middle of a panicked health scare and there was no time like the present to see more things. That trip was honestly the best few days of my entire life, and I’ll treasure the memories I made there for the rest of my life. ❤

I even got a badass souvenir tattoo while I was there: A pink dragon with New Jersey’s state motto “Liberty and Prosperity” under it. I can’t really convey into words the special meaning behind it. I just know I’ll never stop smiling whenever I look at it.

I have a new appreciation for how hard it is to take a decent photo of my own arm.

I loved meeting the good people of the USA. I felt so welcomed in New Jersey. It breaks my heart when I think of the current cataclysmic situations unfolding there now. A year ago might as well have been another lifetime on a different planet. I’m grateful I got to see some of the USA at its best, and I know my beloved American friends will get through this. Sending all my love across the border, eh!

To honor the anniversary of that awesome trip, here’s a travel log style article detailing my wonderful days spent there.

Seriously Geeky Sundays: Food

Oh, man… am I ever in a MOOD today. I’ve sobbed and raged, but I haven’t let those painful feelz control me. I can’t fight how I’m feeling in these crappy moments, I can only control my actions and not act like self-destructive trainwreck. Being aware that the only thing in this crazy world I can control is me is a great coping mechanism I’ve learned to utilize with professional help, some trial, and a ton of catastrophic errors. Go me! Enough about my moods… let’s talk about da foods!

Speaking of food, quick shout-out to the awesome Later Levels for holding an epic dinner photo not-really-but-was-contest during their Twitch stream earlier today! Plus their Eurovision Division stream last night was a freaking blast. All that really brightened my weekend! Thank you for that.

Anyway, the awesome Heather over at Just Geeking By started a series of blogging prompts called Seriously Geeky Sundays. This week is all about the fantastic fictional food. Definitely check out Heather’s creative prompts and take part in the fun if you want! I’m absolutely loving her questions so far.

So… without anymore intro babbling from me, here are my answers to Just Geeking By’s sating questions for this week. Thank you, Heather!
