I feel thankful.

Pixelated Thanksgiving Dinner

What are you thankful for?

The year is coming to a close. Let's take a quick moment and reflect on what we're thankful for this year.

For me, it's quite simple. I'm thankful for my friends. The motivation they give me is what keeps me going in this wild yet rad world. I'm thankful for the friends I've had since childhood, and the new friends I've made over the years. I'm also thankful for the people who have been in my life and for those who have brought out the best in me.

Music Discovery: Penthouse Suite

I think that every artist is always in search of ways to make people feel happy, relaxed or complete. No matter what path they decide to take to achieve it. By the way... Do you know who made the background music for the first V. H. Hess commercial? Yep. You guessed it!

Introducing Penthouse Suite, the music discovery of this post! Penthouse Suite makes aesthetic tunes fit for the office, hotel room or your next road trip. Of their current releases, my favorite album is currently Complimentary Sweets. Take a listen below!

The year is coming to a close. Let's take a quick moment and reflect on what we've done this year so far. What have you done? What have you enjoyed this year? I'll tell you one of my moments. 

Pokémon Trading Card Pages

Pokémon Cards

Early this year, I decided to do some proper spring cleaning in my attic. To my surprise, I found my carefully-kept binders of Pokémon trading cards. The first 5 original decks from 1999, all 100% completed! They've only been played with a few times, all in near-mint condition.

As we grow up, our roles, ideas, interests and aspirations change over time. I stopped caring about tabletop games. And now, as virtual reality becomes commonplace, I've made the decision next month to part with this collection to pursue new entertainment. As I am no longer a collector and someone who prefers experiences over mere possessions, this may help me see even more of the world to further my creative ambitions.

Until Next Month

During this holiday season, take some time to talk to those whom you care about, let them know you care and that you'll be there for them when things get tough. And if it's currently tough for you, know that you're not alone. There is always someone out there willing to listen.

Wishing you the best for the remainder of this year, and for the next one to be totally rad!
