At Khor Virap – Lusarat, Armenia
I came back from Armenia a month ago and it has taken me this long to make a post. I wanted to write as soon as I got back but to be honest, my experience there was so overwhelming that I didn’t know where to start and so today I decided I should just write something. I need time to process my trip. I took so many photographs and when I sit down to sort through them I get overwhelmed again, so if it’s alright with you, I’m gonna take some time and let them sit for a bit until I’m ready.
Armenia was wonderful. It had been 12 years since I’d been there last. Saying that the place had changed would be a huge understatement. I had heard how much Yerevan (the capital) had changed from friends and family that had traveled there these past couple of years but I didn’t expect to be so pleasantly surprised. It’s a beautiful city with so much happening! People are always out and about and I’m a bit jealous that I’m not there right now.
What I appreciated the most was that I got a chance to disconnect from my worries for a bit. I was surrounded by wonderful people and friends, ate a lot of good food, and was just constantly in awe of how beautiful Armenia is. Lots of love all around <3
I’ll be back with more photos <3
Traveling to Armenia in the afternoon. I am currently sitting alone watching youtube videos and drinking tea because I can’t fall asleep. Yuuuup.
I hope you’re all well <3 I’ll write again soon.
It’s been a while! I’ve been keeping busy…working, working on personal projects, hanging out with people, running around everywhere. Today I finally got a chance to take a break and swim. I am now two shades darker than I was yesterday.
Dressed up as påskkärringar a couple of years ago for Easter~
Have a lovely Easter weekend <3
I spent a lovely afternoon at my friend’s home yesterday before having to rush home to get ready to attend a wedding. He made me a wonderful lunch and we reconnected after being apart for a couple of months. Ponchik was happy as always. I always considered him a small dog but now that I have Laika, Ponchik seems so huge in comparison. They’ll be friends soon.
My dad and I are olive toned. We both have lots of moles everywhere. When I was younger, he jokingly said “I’m sorry, Lorik. You took after me. But look, you can connect the dots and they become your own constellations”. So this is for my dad’s words.
Around three weeks ago (can’t remember exactly how long it has been…), I got to display my work at an art show in Burbank. I had a wonderful night with my friends.
Since then, I’ve started a couple of pieces. I’m trying to be more consistent with the amount of time I spend painting/drawing. I want to produce more so I can get into a groove. It’s hard for me to want to draw when I’m not feeling well or if I’m stressed, so I’m trying to find ways to get into it even when I’m not okay. It’s hard when I start off but the more I draw, I feel better emotionally too, so it’s great~
I hope you’re all doing well <3
