Sunrise over Alaska Peninsula

Dawn was breaking as we flew over the frigid landscape of Alaska Peninsula. As the sun peeked over the horizon, it cast an orange glow on a place that seemed to be barren and lifeless. At sunrise, everything is luminous, but not clear.

Happy Valentine's Day to me!

I finally got my passport with my Canadian tourist visa in it. Hurray for a multiple-entry visa! Plus, days before, I also got my Australian tourist visa, also multiple-entry. AND TODAY, I just found out that I won a free trip to Seoul this April! Wow! I didn't expect that my entries would win. Finally, I now have the chance to visit Seoul during the Spring season. I can't wait!

But first, I need to prepare for my winter trip to Toronto which will be happening in eleven days. OMG. I can't believe these are all happening! Thank you, universe!

The Long Wait Is Over

Finally, Canada approved my tourist visa application. I have been anxious and worried for the past few days. I have never been so stressed about this visa application. All's well that ends well. Now, my trip to Toronto is finally happening! I really thought they'd deny application the second time around. Phew! What a relief! I can still remember how I felt after reading my email notification from Canadian immigration.

This is it!

Anxiously waiting

Haven't heard from the Canadian visa, but I am really hoping that they'll approve my visa the second time. Gosh, all these things from work, visa, and travel have been making me anxious for the past few days. The monster in me was unleashed and I hated it so much that it came to that point. I need to refocus my goals and be more patient with everything. I really hate myself for overanalyzing and overthinking stuff. Ugh. Can I be a kid again when the only thing I worry about was to maintain my ranking at school? Gosh, I'm almost 30 yet I'm still struggling with the way I handle things. I am an air traffic controller for God's sake! I should know how to handle pressure and stress! Oh dear.

So help me God.
