Recently I have been having many brainstorming sessions about what I can do with my blog and YouTube channel. As a blogger that wants to focus on travel, style, art, and culture, it gets frustrating to stay in one place feeling like I have no content to publish. I was under a shell of self sabotage and pity, and so in order to break out from that I have decided to start a new series called #ExploringMyCity! I will explore the place I live, have new experiences, and document them. I do not need to travel thousands of miles to publish great content and discover new things. There are so many interesting things to do and see in Detroit that I have yet to discover! Detroit does not have the best reputation, but it is one of the best up-and-coming cities in the United States. I always have fun when I am there, even if I'm in class.
Yesterday I went to Eastern Market on Detroit's East side. There is always something going on at Eastern Market, even though the big open markets are Saturday and Sunday. Although I have been to the Saturday market before, I went to the Tuesday market, which is a smaller mid-week version. They have free community yoga and zumba, so my sister and I went to the yoga class. It was a great class and we walked around the market a bit and checked out the permanent shops that are around the area. It's one of the best places in Detroit to get a sense of community. Everyone there is so nice! Day 1 of #ExploringMyCity was a success. I can tell this summer is going to be good.
