Hi blog people! Today I was inspired by life around me. I think it’s the coolest thing in the world that people from different countries read my posts and I wanted to show you all a piece of my life. I love traveling so very much, I feel like it’s the best way to learn/grow as a person, but I know it’s impossible to travel everywhere on earth in our short lifetimes so I wanted to show you this piece of the world that you may never get to see in real life! I think that’s the best thing about the internet, the whole world is a click of a button away and you can learn so much so mundanely.
I was born and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, a state in the heart of the United States! Every state in the U.S. is different from the other and we are definitely a more relaxed state. You might know us for our crazy devastating tornados. Today, I was hanging out with my family and we decided to go downtown for a walk and some ice cream so I decided to make this post. Also, this was a great chance for me to test my new phone camera 🙂
My dreams of being a social entrepreneur and my high level of millenialness will definitely get me out of Oklahoma in the next decade, but I feel truly blessed to live the life I do. Growing up, I did a fair amount of traveling. Going to amazing cities helped shape my perspective of the world to be how it is and while I definitely complain about the boringness of Oklahoma, there is something so nice about always coming back to this quaint, quiet, traffic-less (seriously guys!!!), flat state. OK feels safe compared to the rest of the world sometimes. The people are nice, the places aren’t crowded, there is no rush, but on the flip side, it’s hard getting food delivered, there isn’t much to do, and having a rush of adrenaline is good sometimes. This post definitely made me view Oklahoma differently. I have gone downtown a million times but I’ve never really looked at it this way and seen all the beautiful little things. I can’t wait to look back on this in the future and remember my first home.
Let me know where you are from in the comments and enjoy these pictures!
I’m so inspired by this indoor pond that looks as smooth as stone, I want something like this in my house. It’s so nice to look at in real life.
The tallest building in Oklahoma. Built just tall enough to be taller than the tallest building in Texas, because we are petty 🙂
A few years ago, our city got a NBA team. For those of you outside the US, we got a basketball team. We’re called Thunder and we’re pretty good so it’s cool having that represent us.
Tiny compared to your downtown? Or do you live somewhere even smaller than me?
This piano was out for anyone to play and I loved it, it was really cute.
About 100 years ago, Oklahoma opened up it’s land to anyone so people poured in to claim land. These statues were recreating that. Look at that, I just gave you a history lesson.
Natives Americans were sent here on the trail of tears and Native American symbolization and tribe names are everywhere in Oklahoma, rightfully so because they started things here. They started the whole US but then they were wiped out. This just got so real, man people are terrible in history why are we like this.
Oklahoma is truly moving forward.
Like I said, Native American touches everywhere, this was one of 8 plaques surrounding a Native American statue.
Cool new art.
Thank you so so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed! Life is amazing and I can’t wait to move to a new place and experience something completely different. Where are you from? I want to know! I post every Tuesday and Saturday so please check back if you liked it!
