The Monocle Cafe

Runway Bandits Crop Top | So Frocking Good Skirt

Weekday chilling with Trishna (again) cause we are the only people ever free on weekday afternoons, haha. We decided to head over to my "real" hood in Holland V, "real" being all quotation marked up because I spend more time and identify myself as someone who lives in Upper Thomson in actuality.

So moving on, I always saw The Monocle Cafe on Instagram but never knew it was in Holland V! It was kind of surprising because the cafe is located in an actual house (is that legal? Haha) and it looked like there wasn't much seating initially - but we were pleasantly surprised to find that the backyard was much more quaint and private! We even could grab some reading materials from the front desk to just sit, chill and chit chat with our coffees. 


Anyway I was digging through my old blog the other day, looking at all the faces of people who've come in and out of my life; thinking about the person I was then and who I am now and feeling this little twinge of sadness that if I knew what I know now maybe life would be a little fuller now. But it's a natural progression to have people move in and out of your life.

"The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they find the past better than it was, 
the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be." 

But on the bright side, it is a good thing to believe that I am a more improved version of myself than I was last time. Progress has been made. Slow, but not too late. Anyone who is worth it is still a part of my life now. Anyone in the future who can pass judgement before even getting to know me are probably people who still have their own demons to deal with.

And this is how I live now.
