hi, i’m chia and welcome to my little corner of the internet!
I am a twenty-two-year-old digital creative with a passion for reading and writing. In January 2019, I started this blog with the intention of sharing my love for makeup and everything beauty-related. Earlier this year, though, I thought of opening up even more and added my love for books, art, and simply an all-around creative lifestyle into the mix—making writing and sharing on this blog more enjoyable.
When I’m not on here, you’ll find me cozied up at home either studying or reading with my favorite cup of green tea, and if I’m not doing that I’m probably writing poetry, otherwise, I’m most likely watching reruns of Gilmore Girls. And if there’s one fictional character I relate to the most, it’s definitely Rory Gilmore.
I think it’s safe to say that when it comes to music, I can never listen to just one genre. Seriously, I just can’t! I enjoy listening to classical and ballet music as much as jazz, indie rock, R & B, electronic, and occasionally, the 90’s. My favorite artists would have to be Marian Hill, The Paper Kites, The Japanese House, and Terror Jr. Also, it isn’t a perfect day without hearing some Bach and Tchaikovsky.
Finally, I adore classic, feminist, and postmodern literature. You can never go wrong with Fyodor Dostoevsky, Virginia Woolf, Haruki Murakami, Simone de Beauvoir, Rebecca Solnit, and Sylvia Plath—they rank high on my list of favorite authors. There’s just something about complex and complicated literature that really captures my liking. When it comes to poetry, I find myself extremely in love with Catullus’ and Sappho’s works.
Few of the things I love: waking up at 5 a.m. and immersing in the stillness of dawn just before the sun rises and the world begins to resume, that first sip of tea in the morning, losing myself between the pages of a book, popping bubble wrap (I mean, who doesn’t, right?), that pleasant feeling of comfort after a warm bath, busy yet quiet days of learning and studying, and watching my favorite sitcom after a long day. Little moments like these are too sweet and beautiful to take for granted, and when I pause to try and really appreciate them, I realize how much of a good life it is.
Thank you for being here. I hope you find my pieces of writing delightful to read and that my musings make your visit to this blog worthwhile. See you around!
