The Birth of Thee Adventurette

I started my blog about 2 1/2 years ago, in September of 2014. I vividly remember being inspired by Malala’s story of using her blog and writing to reach out to struggling girls all over the world. I wanted to be able to do that – to at the very least, inspire my readers and make them smile. Hopefully, I’ve been able to accomplish that :) Thee Adventurette started out as “Live. Laugh. Love.” and evolved over the years. I wouldn’t be here without my faithful readers! xx


Advice for New Bloggers

hmm, this might be a little difficult. If you are a new blogger, I encourage you to blog about your passions. Don’t think that you have to conform to the mainstream in order to get likes and views – that shouldn’t be the reason why you are blogging in the first place! If you truly care about something, you shouldn’t care about other people’s negative opinions on it. Just keep blogging regularly, interact with your readers, and be yourself! cliche advice, I know – but trust me, it works.

Summer Adventuring – Mermaids

The beach is especially packed during the summer days, but I managed to find a beautiful cove that wasn’t too crowded about a couple weekends ago.

Enjoy the photos of my inner mermaid spirit :)

Ft. my favorite backpack ever from Twig and Arrow and my messy hair u.u

PC: my amazing photographer (aka my sister) and my photographer in training (aka my dad)

I give you an A for effort, Dad u_u

The more I look at this picture, the more I realize how tiny I am xD

I’ve grown up 10 minutes from the beach, and I know that I must have saltwater in my veins <3

~ I must be a mermaid – I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.

Make every day an adventure (:

Time Traveling

I look at the date and it is December 31st, the last day of 2015. This year has gone by so fast; I feel that I have jumped into a time travel machine and have somehow been transported from January 1st to December 31st in one ZAP!

I cannot wait to take on 2016.

20151231-074803.jpg
I am eager for 2016’s adventures and I am ready to achieve its goals.

20151231-075433.jpg
I will refuse to give up. Life cannot make me, because I have Him on my side.

20151231-074841.jpg
I will press on to the very top until victory greets me. I will refuse to be daunted by challenges.

20151231-080015.jpg
And above all, I will find delight in the little things. Like these beautiful flowers.

2016, you better watch out.

Yours truly,
That Girl Over There

Merry & Bright

It’s finally Christmas! Where we live it feels like summer (lol!) with warm sunshine and blue skies. So yeah, not your normal stereotypic Christmas weather~ I hope that wherever you may be, you have a Christmas that is MERRY AND BRIGHT! And don’t forget the reason for the season!

Goodbye November!

Well, here we are. The last day of November! I cannot believe that 2016 looms up ahead, sooner than I have expected! (I didn’t expect my biology class to start up so soon either. poo.)
Here are some artsy pictures we captured on a recent hike~

Reminiscing.

Warning: If you do not enjoy reading a reminiscing post of considerate length, then I advise you not to read this.

Dear readers,
It is late afternoon, and the sun is shining rays of perfect warmth. I sit and fondle the cover of a work book.

Enthralled by His Glory


He knew my needs and uplifted my spirits by sending me a beautiful reminder of His constant love. He also knew what reminder I like best: an incomparable West Coast sunset.


Imagine what the sky will look like when He comes for me and you!

Yours,

That Girl Over There

Day 4: I Can’t Even List Everything – the Title Would Be Too Long!

   Wow! What. A. Day. I don’t think I even have to tell you that I’m wiped out beyond words! Day 4 is the day our family joined a bus tour traveling through several Candian provinces. On our route, we stopped at the city of Hope, a ginseng factory, and had a lovely view of the Fraser River, which is so cold (4 Celsius) that no one dares to swim in it! Well, maybe except me…. πŸ˜‰

   After lunch, our tour guide directed us to a beautiful waterfall called Spahats Falls. For all you loyal followers, I literally just stood at the railing trying to think of how I would describe such a magnificent scene to you. And here it is. There are two, giant rock walls coming together to form a V. At the point of the V is a chasm that splits the joining rock sides in half. Keep in mind that the chasm only cuts half of the rock walls. And, in that chasm is a bubbling spring that tumbles out of the chasm and the rest of the distance to the ground, where it gathers in clear, gushing pools. Now, see how much thought I put into this explanation? You’re welcome~

       The finale to the day was watching salmon spawn in a nearby creek. Don’t even think about squirming. In reality, watching salmon spawn was so inspiring. These king salmon overcame huge obstacles and gigantic odds to fin their way back to their birthplace. They swam all the way from the ocean to this little creek that was shallow, their fins protruded from the swirling water. And if that’s not enough, these courageous fish don’t eat for the six months they take to travel to their birthplace. They Don’t Eat A Thing. That’s pretty unbelievable. And there’s even more. These beautiful fishies lose their luster and shine, and scars and scratches from the rocks replace them. These salmon give up everything to return to their spawning grounds. After they lay their eggs, they lose even more – their own life.
It reminds me of a familiar story.
Jesus came down to earth from heaven. He lost so much. He was “bruised and wounded.” For us. And in the end, He lost His life. But there was hope, because He was resurrected from the dead and restored. The salmon lose their lives, but they give hope β€” they spur on the next generation of salmon, who repeat the same thing. There’s always hope, no matter the situation.
Thanks for putting up with my rambling and reading this far!

Yours,
That Girl Over There~

Meeting Tomorrow.

Hesitantly, I stretched my hand out toward him. I had heard so much about this newly adopted little boy, but now that I was really meeting him…all my confidence suddenly vanished and I quaked inside. The seven year old slowly took my hand and grasped it.
