corner view "spring"

Spring, a time when all of the flowers are in bloom, the birds are singing, the sun is shining. At this time where I live, I'm lucky to have spring year-round. We don't really have seasons here, but below are some pictures to show you all what our garden looks like today.

Our Beautiful New Lemon Tree.

We've had the tangerine tree for a while but it's starting to bear more fruit!

Anyway, that was a small glimpse of spring in my yard. For more beautiful spring adventures go to Jane's blog!

corner view "typical architechture"

Typical architecture in my neighborhood is like this. People like colored tiles on their roofs.  They like bright blue skies, they like sprinklers. Not that interesting. But when we went to France and Venice, there was some really interesting architecture there!

After training hard, breaking boards, learning a little Korean, practicing punches and kicks, and going for about two and a half hours three times a week, I got my blue belt in Taekwondo. 

Taekwondo has helped me learn a lot of things and helped me get very strong mentally and physically. It's made me more brave and more confident. I don't know how my life would be without it, so thank you Mr. and Mrs. Donald for teaching Taekwondo to everyone and for bringing it into my family's lives.

corner view "miniature worlds"

Little things, harder to see, but when looked at closely become a whole new world where you can be.

corner view "coffee companion"

Well, first of all, not trying to break the "coffee mood" but I don't drink coffee. Not because I'm one of those people that says "It's so unhealthy" or something like that. In fact, I'm just 13 so drinking stuff that will make me really wild and annoy my mom is really not an option. If I did drink coffee, I think I wouldn't sleep for about three days because I'm wound up enough already as a person. Ask anyone.

Anyway, back to what I was saying. I'm not sure by what you guys mean by "companion" exactly because some of you wrote about sunlight, sugar, cream. If my coffee companion is a human, it would probably be someone I haven't met yet. I don't think any of my current friends would grow up to be the kind of person with a Starbucks constantly in their hands.

Therefore I guess if I have to choose someone I know now to be my coffee companion,  it would actually be two someones, my life companions. I mean if they're life companions, they might as well join me for coffee eventually. So it would be these two guys, my biggest companions in the world!
