Out of The City.

Dear Epic Follower,

      Before departing to Granite Falls, I decided to correct my daily routine to be healthier. I wake up every morning at 4:00 am and work on my cardio at the gym. After the gym, I reward myself with a colorful fruit salad:

Step One: Cut 3 Red Apples

Step Two: Cut 2 Small Watermelons…(w/ hand optional)

Finally add any fruit of your choice and mix!

Here’s the end product (w/ pineapple & blueberries, topped w/ honey!)

Granite Falls

National_Forest

     I’ve never felt the need to connect with the nature around me, but living in the city has changed me. In Windenburg we have the Island Buffs and everyone would go there after school or during weekends so the only time I found myself alone in nature was in my mother’s garden. Granite Falls is an established campsite with an array of lots to call home, lots of fun activities, and wonderful views.

Waterfall

I discovered this waterfall while taking a hike to refocus myself and really embrace the nature. The salty fresh smell of the water filled the light fresh breeze that flew through the forest.

Silly

Made it to the lot, and I’m super excited! There is a place to host a game of horse shoe, a fire pit to roast marshmallows, a picnic table, and a grill!

Camp_Shop

     For first time campers such as myself, there is a store located on-site for all your camping items. I purchased an inflatable twin bed, and folding chair. The lot I chose may surprise you since my spending was very limited.

Campsite

     Surprised I didn’t pick a lot with a cabin? I told you from the beginning: I want to FULLY embrace nature and all that she has in-store for me.

Fishing

     This crystal clear lake was the best area to practice finishing. It was easy to see the fish, and  catch them. I used the soft rubber hooks not to injure the fish I tossed back into the late.

Ocean

Breathtaking isn’t it?

Toasting

     Roasting marshmallows was the best way to end the night, just make sure your chair isn’t too close to the fire.

Sleeping_2

     The next morning I went on another hike and discovered a nicely placed garden free for the harvesting!

Forest

     Since I’d be out for most of the day, I didn’t want to carry around any loose herbs or veggies but I encourage you to harvest until your coolers are exploding with fresh produce!

Muesum

     This is the museum of Granite Falls, established almost 65 years ago! On the porch there is a wood carving station, and some chairs.

Inside_2

     Some of the collectible wildlife in the area.

Fairies

     Ever since I was younger I’ve tried to catch these little “fairies” but they’re excellent at hiding!

Inside

     Another shot of the captured wildlife. I honestly don’t know where they have pans in here but I’m sure they don’t eat the creatures…o_o

This trip really widened my perception on life, and I hope that you can visit this wonderful place! Comment down below if you actually have the chance to visit!

Monica,

     Just wanted to let you know about Arun Bheeda, and how MARRIED he is. The women in the picture is his wife Jesminder Bheeda and their 7 year old son Christian. 

-Akira Miko

This photo wasn’t the worst of the situation, it was the questions that bounced in my head day and night.

Who else knew Arun was married? Why would he lead me on?

door_akira

Who was Arun really and what am I going to do about this?


*dial tone rings*

Monica_1.png

 Monica Epic: Can you & Whitley meet me for drinks tonight?


Akira_3

Monica Epic: How did you get–why did–did you

Akria Kibo: Did I always know? I had an idea. It was suspicious he always smelled like women’s perfume.

Monica Epic: Don’t you think I would’ve noticed that?

Akira Kibo: It wasn’t something you were looking for. I hurt you, and he quickly gave you a shoulder to cry on. That moment I saw you two kiss–

Monica Epic: What?!

Akiro_2

Akira Kibo: I hired a private investigator and found out Arun is married with a 7 year old child! You don’t seem like the type to consent to an affair.

Monica Epic: I wouldn’t–I didn’t. Thank you for telling me, but this doesn’t change the terms of our arrangement. We’re only club members, not friends. Goodbye, Akira.

Akiro_1

Farewells will never apply to us dear. My love for you is immortal, and will never stop.


Drinking_2

Aubrey Hays: Correct me if I’m wrong but you’re saying Akira sent you an email of Arun kissing his wife and had been having an affair with you?

Arun_1

Monica Epic: Yup.

Arun_3

Whitley Wing: Aburey, calling a few dinners an affair is a little extreme.

Drinking_1

Aubrey Hays: Oh, no physical contact?

Drinking_5

Monica Epic: Not really…just a few kisses but nothing further.

Aubrey Hays: I’m still going to count it.

Whitley Wing: *rolls eyes* Well, tonight isn’t about that it’s about Monica.

Drinking_4

Monica Epic: It is? I just wanted to enjoy the free drinks on Aubrey’s running tab.

Aubrey Hays: Wonderful.

Drinking_3

Whitley Wing: *whispers* I think there’s someone here for you…

Arun_5

Arun Bheeda: Monica, may we talk?

Arun_4

Monica Epic: *whispers to Aubrey & Whitley* Order me a sweet n’ sour strong.

Monica Epic: Sure, Arun.

Arun_10

Arun Bheeda: Seeing your text this morning had my whole day in a rut.

Monica Epic: Aw, poor you. My day was planned out pretty well until I decided to respond to some fan mail. Arun_9

*sigh* I don’t want to hear why you didn’t tell me. I don’t need to hear how sorry you are. I just wanted to say to your face: I’m not mad. The tea at the Romance Festival is rumored for having strong effects and that’s what this was;

Arun_8

 our feelings were just side effects.

Arun Bheeda: I can agree with that. Friends?

Arun_12

Monica Epic: Sure.

Arun_13

Whitley Wing & Aubrey Hays: How did it go?

Monica Epic: Great actually. I think I need some time away from the city and focus on myself.

Aubrey Hays: Before hope is all lost, my roomate is super cute and really–

Whitley Wing: Did you not just hear her?

*group laugh*


Forget about Arun.

Monica_4

It was just a side effect of the tea.

Monica_3

It didn’t mean anything.

kiss

He didn’t mean anything.

Arun_12

Did he?

Re-prioritize

Dear Epic Followers,

     For those of you who may of heard or seen me recently at the Romance Festival, you make skip the next couple lines.

     Since my arrival to San Mysuno, I’ve been guided by a few city natives including Akira Nibo of the famous karaoke group: Karaoke Legends. Things began to get increasingly romantic with Akria, and I began hoping for something more stable…he wasn’t. As of now, he is still apart of Festival Freaks but not my personal life.

Miko_post

     As for his latest post featuring Miko Ojo, all I can comment is: good luck.

     As for the day to day: I’ve been going to the gym, and surrounding myself with people who actually care about me.
