san francisco, style, fashion, travel, lifestyle curated by Ariel Tzu-Chi

Fashion is about projecting where you're going in life.

Therefore, life is fashion, fashion is style.

That's the lifestyle I am producing. 
 

風尚是一種生活品味的投射

因此生活即是風尚,風尚便是品味

這就是我想實踐的生活方式

Life Update

It's been awhile and there's quite a bit to update so I'll skip the formalities and lay it all out. As they said, no reason to stay is a good reason to go. That's right. For a very long period of time I was in a serious state of feeling depressed and which is a very generous adjective. I felt like a free-floating life raft, lost its direction and intension, lost its purposes. I was just about exist. I was constantly scoping and scraping, trying to factor the situation but I seemed to only making matters worse. So I made the decision of leaving San Francisco. It may not be the most wanted answer for myself but finally there's an ending sight to the misery, and that's something to look forward to.

I always pride myself as a person who can make the move at the right time and I always dare to fight my way back from the rock bottom; because 'fear' is just a fugitive thought. Everything comes in a full circle; all I can do is use what feels right, and throw away the rest. Of course the way to recovery is a long journey, (and I never liked life well enough) but there's always small celebrations to add to the smaller days. And now I'll stop badgering.

開門見山地說吧,離開的日子近了。在哪聽說,沒有留下的理由就是最好的理由,於是我要走了。過了好長一段低潮,(低潮還只是一個委婉的說法)像漂浮的筏,沒有方向,也失去了意義。僅僅存在著,如此而已,那是一種很絕望的感覺。無論如何施力,也只是加速失控。關於心裡的事,很難一言而盡。

我總是認為自己是一個很敢的人,不是膽子大,也沒有多有見解,只是願意明白,害怕只是一種錯覺,而我,有頭破血流的勇氣。生命是一個循環,我僅能憑藉來自內在的韻律,去感應,去照顧好心裡的事,其他的也就不那麼要緊了。關於慢慢變好,有一段路要走,但是在那些微小細瑣的日子裡,還是有值得看見的事。

It's Never Goodbye


These photos were taken two summers ago with Seina, whom I wish I could have met sooner.As a overseas dweller, I say farewell to friends quite often; if you are also one of us, you must know the feeling of always confronting goodbyes. Departing sucks, seeing loved ones waving goodbyes is even worse - you are left alone back into the everyday grind and wondering how's the other side of the world. Over times, I thought I grow better at it but it's never so easy. However, I've learned to accept that, it's never goodbye; it's having a good friend residing in a different city, waiting for you to visit; until then, we shall all be living our lives fully, strong and well, when the reunion arrives upon us, it'd be like we've never parted.

竟然也成為了在世界各地都有朋友的人。離開的人不是放棄,而是在其他地方看見了可能性,並且願意到那裡去。留下的人並不是孤寂,因為在一起的時候,都有好好珍惜。下次再見的時候,我們都會是更好的人,更溫柔,更有力量。
