My name is Laina and thank you so much for being interested in my blog! I am an English Literature Major at UBC, and am also obtaining my minor in History. I’ve grown up in Vancouver all my life, and I truly believe it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

I love reading and writing; I actually kind of like writing my many papers despite the panic-mode that I enter because I’ve been procrastinating. Ultimately, I will consider myself lucky if I get to write for the rest of my life because then I’ll be doing what I love for the rest of my life.

I have an exceptionally close bond with my siblings whom I love very much and I was extremely lucky to have always had both of my parents at home while I was growing up (I love them too). I am full-Japanese, Okinawan, to be exact, and though my proficiency in the language is quite pathetic, I’d like to think that I still retain my cultural inheritance.

This blog is my medium for expression: through style and fashion, poetry, random topical musings, and whatever else I may feel like writing about. I hope you find it’s not too trivial but not too esoteric. Thank you so much for visiting!

  6. Hi Laina!
    I am so glad that I found your blog. I just followed you. Your pictures are beautiful and it seems like you have a sweet spirit that shines through in the way you write and in your photos. I hope you do get to live your life doing what you love. Writing is an amazing outlet( as is reading). I too am on a quest to live my dreams. After working in higher educatoin for over 11 years, I have ventured out to pursue my passion of makeup artistry. It is so rewarding!! Good luck pursuing your dreams, and masters! Good to hear that you have a bond with your siblings. That’s a blessing. Can’t wait to see more posts from you!

    1 I’ve been to VC only once and I loved it like I do other North Coastal places.
    2 You never reply to comments, so Ima have to follow you so I can keep track.
