I’m Brinks and I like warm hugs (says in Olaf voice).
Brinks is a 20ish nearing 30ish occasional blogger, every 9am coffee drinker, an introvert by heart with an extrovert energy and an overall auditory person. I always strive try (*cough* there’s no such thing as try) like to blog but the words ran faster in my head before I can compose what I want to write. Wish there’s an available Pensieve here just like Dumbledore’s so that I can just get my memories out before they fade away and record them.
I have a passion for travelling and exploring places (but not always trying the local food). I have travelled solo already (read here), a check off my bucket list! And I can read and navigate maps (Google and actual paper maps). I’ve climbed 4 mountains, which include two major climbs, i.e. Mt. Pulag and Mt. Bulusan (which is volcano!). I can sleep soundly in a tent but needs to have 3 pillows around me when I’m in my bed.
Things I love:
Ballpens – I hoard pens! I like to hoard cute pens or colorful ball pens (which I wasn’t aware I was doing until recently then I remembered I do collect them as a kid, see I’m already rambling there). Cupcake pen, dinosaur pen, pens from our suppliers or hotels lol, colored pens especially.
Captured moments – I’m trigger-happy. I just love shooting moments. I love photography in general but I inclined to shoot portraits depicting a story. It’s just like frozen memories. Five years ago when I wrote my about me page, I still don’t have my camera. I just borrow from friends. Now I own a Canon 600D and my favorite lens, at the moment, is the nifty-fifty! You can check out my sometimes updated Flickr site here.
Chocolate chip cookies – who doesn’t?! I love baking them also! I am mastering my choco-chip oatmeal cookie but I started with this yummy recipe from How Sweet It Is and Sally’s Baking Addiction which I experimented on to make it more soft and get that salty sweet taste that I’m looking for. I’ll post my recipe soon.
Stars and the nighttime sky – I wanted to be an astronaut when I was a kid but know that my height doesn’t qualify already and that I wasn’t able to take out a course related to that during college, blahblahblah. But I love stars. That’s one of my favorite during a mountain climb. It’s like we’re closer to the sky and one can see how vast the world is and how we’re just a speck in the galaxy.
Surfing – I’m not really that good at it but I love the sport. I love the serenity of being in the board floating while waiting for the next wave. I love how it reminds me to always get back up no matter how many wipe outs I get. Coz at the end of the day, it’s the standing up, riding the wave matters.
Life analysis conversations – LOL. I love processing people’s thoughts and I can go on and on about the complexities of life.
