          My heart dropped.

The engine of my family's car revved in the exhausting summer heatwave. The crisp air conditioning ricocheted through my eardrum, sending chills down my spine. Butterflies erupted through my stomach, almost causing my earl...

          Monday, March 16, 2020. On that day Governor Gretchen Whitmer mandated that all gyms were to be closed indefinitely in order to stop the spread of COVID-19.

          When I heard this news, I was immediately disappointed. I belong to a Pla...

          With nothing going on now that we have all been sequestered to our homes, it has been a struggle to find activities to keep myself occupied during the continuous weeks of quarantine. I personally have chosen to practice one of my hobbies, playing the guitar....

Behind the wheel, all I can think about is crashing. By facing my fear through practical self-care, I should be able to overcome my anxiety, but as I drive, I realize that this self-care method is not going to help me. Instead of feeling more confi...

After a week in quarantine, I was bored with nothing to do. My usual, pre-Coronavirus daily routine kept me busy from 8am-9pm at night, but now I found myself spending all those hours sitting in my bed. I wanted to do something to keep me in a good mood. I wanted to do...

    After the first few weeks of quarantine, I was feeling rather groggy. My daily routine, if you can even call it that, of sitting around all day and finding comfort in food had finally caught up to me. On April 1st, I set a goal for myself: workout every day for an...

Boba chains have been blooming all over metro Detroit these past years. For those who are not familiar with the Taiwan-based drink, boba tea, it is a combination of black tea, or green tea with a choice of milk or fruit flavoring, the liquidy substance is poured over b...

At every corner we turn, a new feature of the Rijksmuseum garden waits to greet us. We walked by a giant chess board in front of a beautiful arch and set of trees reaching into the sky. A group of tourists hovered around the chessboard, ready to st...

The cover of the book hints at the subtle themes of guilty pleasures and forbidden love that lie within the story. As you can see, the character who claims to hate green eggs and ham is clearly bent over in awe of the very alluring dish. Did you know the song Tainted L...

A NEW PERSPECTIVE

A PHOTO COLLECTION BY WILL BRADLEY

These video and photos are all from my travels in the summer: including the Grand Tetons, Malibu California, Acadia Maine, New York City and Yellowstone. I leave every summer to explore and experience adrenaline-filled adventures-- surfing, mountain biking, and waterfall jumping--with my best friends. No family. We enjoy living like locals and get the rush many tourists never feel.  We only know about hidden gems because we take time to befriend those who live there year-long. These new friends show us unknown hikes, surf breaks, rafting spots, secret building tops and caves only known by locals. Every time I come back to visit these places, I have more people to meet and hang out with. I haven't been home in the month of July since 2011. I wouldn't want it any other way. Traveling has been a much-needed escape from everything to do with home.  Through my photos and videos, I capture that freedom.
