Thank you for checking out my little corner of the internet here on iFixit!

Three things you should know: ✨ I create things / I explore things / + I love love ✨

// Create

You'll catch me taking photos of anything in natural light. Little corners of a room with a plant nearby to shadows casting on a cat's back. I like raw + real photos, especially in black and white. I also love writing letters—literal letters—that make up words, also known as: handlettering or calligraphy! You can find my work here [shameless plug]: http://www.madebysue-lyn.com

// Explore

If I am not at home or at work, I am most likely at a coffee shop [preferably Ascendo or Linnaea's] or exploring some new place I saw on my drive somewhere. I love spontaneous trips: near or far. One of my favorite adventures was exploring this abandoned church in Gary, Indiana [not the safest place in America, but definitely worth it! / also pictured on the right]

What we are living is the true-life version of a "choose your own adventure" book—and we are given the privilege + responsibility of forging our own way. Sylvia Plath speaks of choosing our destiny like plucking figs from a tree—endless in options and opportunity, waiting, and ready for the taking—weighted with the knowledge that choosing one fig may mean losing the rest. It's a dilemma that can be both tantalizing, arduous, paralyzing, but there is some mourning and some reveling either way.

// Love

I love tea, reading, taking photos, gaming, foreign films, long walks [just not on the beach, I hate sand, ha!], one on ones, traveling, a good hearty laugh, movies, cats + living each day moment by moment.
