Eastern Conference finals, here we come!

It’s happening! It’s really happening! You can hear it in Gareth Wheeler’s voice all the way through this video, where he’s just fanboying all the way through, but we’ve finally done it! After so many years of moaning, groaning, and trying not to wince at 0-3(+) losses, we are finally through the playoffs. I can’t believe it!

I’m going to buy tickets to the playoffs game on November 30th – it’s on a weeknight so that kinda sucks – but the tickets are super expensive, so I’m hoping the price will drop a bit after the crazy hype goes away.

Also, I have some pretty big news for all my blog readers in the coming week. I’m reserving it for a time when I’m mellow and in the mood to write my feelings out. I’ve been in and out of that mood for the whole weekend, so perhaps later this week, after work or something, I’ll tell everyone here. (Although I don’t think anyone even reads this blog, to be completely honest.)

  • Imagine living here. You'd be completely undisturbed, with nothing but pure nature around you. Such a beautiful country. 🏞️ (Throwback, obviously.)
  • When it's the last day in #Porto, and you want to take some final photos of the beautiful square in the city, but you don't have time to check your photos, and it isn't until you're on your way back to the hotel to grab your luggage so you don't miss your flight (which ended up being delayed for an hour), do you realize that the sun was so bright that afternoon, the best photo editing you can do is to make the photo black and white. #RunOnSentence 🇵🇹
  • Dinner. Brussels sprouts and a bowl of mussels cooked in white wine sauce. 🤤
  • This is not really the typical photo I share on my Instagram account, but because I liked the experience so much, I decided that I want it as a permanent photo on here.

This photo was taken just after I alighted from the metro train at the airport station. I sat by the window as it rolled into the station, and was able to watch the futuristic style architecture of the airport building stream past the window. I also really liked seeing the train tracks be directly embedded in the grass all the way from the last station to this station. The whole futuristic look of the building in the background behind the green grassy train tracks is such a pretty aesthetic. Kudos to the exterior designers who planned this. ✈️🌱
  • 70+-year-old port wine from Portugal. 🇵🇹 (Not really a fan of port wine, but this is decent.) #WineTour
  • Oh god, this dinner was so heavy. A full glass of green white wine (filled to the brim, as I've already drank most of it), a francesinha (a classic Portuguese dish; a layered meat sandwich dish coated with cheese and a slightly spicy gravy (?) sauce), and then with fries. 😵 As I mentioned in my Instagram Story, this is peak Portuguese, as I was watching a football game (@slbenfica losing 2-0 to a 13th ranked team) on a TV screen at the same time. 🥴🇵🇹 #DrunkWithCarbs

P.S. I'll have you know, Anthony Bourdain paid a visit to this restaurant during a trip to Porto. Legit. 💁🏻‍♀️ #AnthonyBourdain
