Gone Peaking

Here's to two amazing Davids.

"Summer" of Dreams

Where do I even begin?

How about we set the vibe first. It starts out with a some Chet Faker, FKA Twigs, SOHN, and then a little bit of James Bay and George Ezra. Oh, and throw in some Hozier in the mix too. Mmm, yeah. That feels just about right.

Now, where were we? Oh, yeah. Apparently I'm bad at blogging. But that's about to change now. And I am serious this time like, I-want-to plan-an-elaborate-wedding-proposal-to-you-that-would-soon-go-viral-once-I-upload-a-video-of-it-on-YouTube-because-it-was-ridiculously-grandiose kind of serious. But, enough with the promises and on with the agendas.

The past few months have been so different compared to what I was doing a year ago... and I kind of love it. Aside from the uncertainty of where I'd be a year from now and the worries and anxieties that come along with it, it's that same uncertainty that brings excitement to my life. If you told a year ago that I'd be brushing shoulders with Matty (of The 1975) and Thomas Mars (of Phoenix), I would've told you you're crazy because those sorts of things do not happen to me. I'm the type of person who'd buy a Killers concert ticket only to find out they'd soon be disbanding/taking a break and cancel the whole tour (circa 2011). But I guess things finally took a turn for the best because not only have I watched a few of my favorite bands live but I've also found myself to be a certified yoga teacher now. A year ago, I wrote this letter and briefly mentioned how I wanted to pursue my certification and now I actually am. I can't believe that was just a year ago.

For someone who doesn't do much, a lot has happened.

Now, what exactly have I been up to in the months that I've missed blogging?

26 Weeks


I have been gone for way too long and I don't really have a good excuse for it. A lot has happened in the last six months that I never would have thought would happen to me. It is definitely one of the craziest times I've had so far that would make some great stories to tell. But first, let me just put into perspective how long I've been away from The Walcott. Since my last post in December, Jennifer Lawrence won another Golden Globe, Shia Labeouf  is apparently "not famous anymore," Solange went berserk on Jay-Z, James Franco was totally inappropriate to a 17-year old on Instagram, Kimye got married at Versailles, and now the World Cup is back. 

It's the 1st of July and I thought today seems the right time to get back as well. Although, the things that I've been up to is not as crazy as that list up there. Personally, I would never dare throw a punch at Mr. Carter.

Be on the look out for my next posts about my past six months. Here's a list of some of the things I've done:

- I attended St. Jerome's Laneway Festival 2014 in Singapore
- I met Phoenix
- I kissed George Daniel of The 1975 on the cheek
- I watched the X Games
- I saw Dillon Francis!!!
