we need more than prayers

Hi friends. As you know, the deadliest shooting in the history of the USA took place in Las Vegas last night, leaving 58 families grieving loved ones and over 500 people injured. I know that I’m Canadian. But the reality is that this problem transcends borders, much as friendships and loved ones do. This ripples out and impacts the world. I wish more than anything that this was the first time this happened, or even the first time I had…

when you love all the food and end up with all the allergies

[cue loud sad trombone sound] Actually, it’s not that sad. I mean, I was a little sad but I’m kind of choosing to see it as ‘wow, science is so cool and told me to stop being an asshole to my body!’. Glass half full right? So buckle up, cause this is a bit of a long post. So I’ve been spending a fair amount of time with various doctors lately, getting poked and prodded and tested. In their defence,…

doing what makes you happy is good enough

Okay, raise your hand if you do this: say you’re cool with doing nothing, waiting until the right thing comes along, but secretly you’re being crushed by your own drive and desire to “do something” and make sure you’re not either wasting your time or doing nothing with your life and end up unsuccessful. This was (is) me, and probably you too – wanting desperately to prove that you’re independent and powerful and defined by your own triumphs, not the triumphs…

halloween starts like, yesterday

Hi everyone! Guess what, I’ve had things to do because I have a job now which is excellent. Purpose! A good job! Where I’ve made friends! And they’re all lovely! Exciting! I’m currently sitting on my yoga mat, which is about as romantic as it sounds. But you can take it as a good sign that I’ve stuck with my yoga. I think I’m on day 8 or 9? I’m feeling really good about it and it’s been a great…

50 days of yoga

Hi friends, it’s me, your super lazy buddy. You’ll notice this post is called 50 days of yoga, so I’m hoping you’ve sort of got an idea of what it’s about. I enjoy exercising. For real, I know it sounds fake, but I actually do. It just has to be something I like. I enjoy lifting and pretty much hate all kinds of cardio that aren’t me dancing to good songs. But I haven’t been feeling like doing any of…

perks of the scary moments

I feel like me and all my friends are collectively going ‘what are we doing with our lives?’ partially because there are so many options and partially because we’re wondering if we should bother since like, the world is ending? Maybe we should just coast until we head off to the next life? Who knows. But in these weird moments of absolute blinding panic, you really do see the best of the people around you. And really, in all the…

one year.

There are a million quotes I could choose to commemorate our first anniversary of marrying each other. They’d probably have something to do with marrying my best friend, or lobsters, or how of all the people on earth I’m glad you chose me. And in a sense, they’d all be true. But they aren’t enough. No quote I pull off of Pinterest will capture you because there’s too much of you to ever sum up in a sentence. There aren’t…

one door closes, punch a hole in the wall next to it and move on

Every once in awhile, you bump into bad eggs. Not like, actual eggs, but people eggs. Bad people. Should’ve just gone with that from the start. But yeah, every once in awhile you bump into bad people. People that aren’t really interested in the upset they cause or what they leave behind on their way to accomplishing whatever they set out to do. Simply put, these people suck. No other way around it. But they exist. I thought, after weeks…

mood: 80s pop playing while I lay dead in the woods

Sometimes I miss Jackie Chan. Like, I know he hasn’t gone anywhere, but I miss him and I hope he’s having a good day. I’m also waiting for thai food right now. I guess hunger makes me introspective. Our first anniversary is coming up – can you believe its been a YEAR since we got married? That’s insane. It feels like no time at all yet somehow longer (in the best way). We’re going full fancy for dinner, except not…

hunger makes me a modern girl

You know, sometimes you’ve just got to say forget it and decide that you’re going to give yourself a little bit of a self care day. Also, sometimes you’ve got to tell yourself to get your shit together and get your head in the game so you can actually enjoy the self care day. I blame Mercury and the solar eclipse. So, instead of being a sad sack all day long I decided to end my sad sackiness after just an hour…
