Final meal in London before returning home. Latte and Lanka's matcha cake from the Monocle Cafe. Do try the Scandinavian Breakfast there if you ever get the chance-
One last visit to the Tate Modern before returning home to Canada. I was gifted enough this month of July to be able to work as a design intern at the Team. It's been a great experience working in the studio and being able to experience working at a branding agency in London.

For the past few days after grad show, I travelled to Copenhagen, Denmark. It was a spontaneous move, but I really wanted to see part of Northern Europe before I headed back to Canada in July. My favourite place I visited would have to be the Glyptoteket, Frederik's Church, Fælledparken, and Torvehallerne.
I enjoyed a short vacation to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dublin last week with my sister. I think out of all the places we visited the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin was my favourite primarily for the Francis Bacon Studio. Within the exhibition is a recreation of Francis' studio from 7 Reece Mews, South Kensington.
As my stay in England is slowly nearing an end (possibly), I wanted to make a list of all the galleries I've managed to visit while during my time abroad and planning all the galleries I'd like to see in my remaining time before going home.
I was fortunate enough this week to be able to see the D&AD Festival at the Old Truman Brewery in London. Being able to listen to multiple talks throughout the day was both insightful and inspiring, I particularly enjoyed Lucienne Roberts' talk Two roads diverged in a wood.
I was also lucky enough to be shortlisted for my entry Born. which was totally unexpected but I'm grateful none the less. Cheers.
In the past few months being here in England, I feel like I've fallen out of the loop with film. What would once keep me up in the late summer nights seems too time consuming while I'm trying to plan for my graduation (again) after not so long ago.
This Easter break, I found myself wandering through the streets of Florence and Pisa.
I was lucky enough to see Big Bang Data exhibit at the Somerset House at its last weekend this week. It was overly crowded on its second last day, but I managed to comfortable go through the exhibition. I was particularly interested in quantified self (gathering data from your personal daily life) and the concept of data licenses (the right to withhold your personal data from third parties).
It's my first time being away from home during February, February being the month of my birthday.
