A girl, a cat, and an apartment with potential.

My main interests here are art and design, things I love about Oakland, California and what it’s like living here, and anything that goes into making a home but I can’t promise not to get off topic (oh, a kitten/food/somethingshiny!)

And in case you were wondering about the name, here’s what it means.


Gender: Feminine
Origin: Japanese
Meaning: “joy child.”

The name is composed of the Japanese characters, etsu 悦 representing “joy” and ko 子 which represents: ”child.”
