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…

slow your roll

CONFESSION ZONE I have been having a little internal war with myself over the last few days and have been hellishly blue as a result. I’ve been feeling totally purposeless without knowing when/where I’ll be working, feeling like I need to have a ‘good’ ‘impressive’ job right off the bat, etc etc. You all know how this internal diatribe goes and it is bogussssss. Really, I should be focusing on enjoying the brand new city I’m living in, taking the…

i don’t know what i’m doing

If you guys haven’t found your spiritually kickass life guru yet, I really can’t recommend it enough. I recently went back to the tiny town I grew up in for a visit, and going back sort of gave me one of those weird moments of like… what do I say when people ask what I’m doing? Cause really, I’ve got no idea what I’m doing or what I even really want to do. With our cross country move impending (51 days!!)…

life lately + food update

Okay, first thing is first: we recently got a diffuser and my whole house smells so good right now you guys, I just needed to get that out there. It’s distracting and wonderful. I don’t know about you guys, but February snuck up on me so fast. I feel like Christmas was both forever ago and only yesterday. Time is just moving so fast! Before I know it, we’re going to be packing up and leaving this beautiful city where we’ve…

a message from my tiny couch

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday night. It feels like a success that we’ve made it this far this week, doesn’t it? I’m counting it as one, for sure. Class for me started this week, which has so far involved me doing two gruelling ‘introduce yourself’ assignments. Just kidding. About the gruelling part. I’m sure you got that. Anyways. We’re off to a pretty good start to the week, and I’m thinking that’s going to carry on. I went to the gym yesterday…

thoughts on food

I have been thinking a lot about food. I mean, what else is new really, but with a more critical and determined eye than usual. Normally its just like ‘hell yeah, lets eat it’. I’ve been trying to be consistent in watching what I eat and choosing my food carefully. And then, you know, the holidays happened and all of that went out the window. Which isn’t really an excuse but I’m not going to drag myself over it, so.…

twenty seventeen

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had the very merriest of holiday seasons and enjoyed it all – the good and the bad. I gotta say, I’m happy to see the back of 2016. I’m not super into new years resolutions because I feel like if you’re going to make a positive change you should just do it when you’re actually ready and hopefully then it’ll actually stick. However! I am into the renewed sense of purpose that…

stormy mornings are for…

I feel extra lucky and thankful today that I have mornings where I can get up slowly (wrestling the night guard out of my mouth not withstanding), enjoy some quiet moments, and spend time on a beach watching clouds roll in while I enjoy my coffee. I feel grateful today that I was afforded peace because of the courage of others. That I get to sit here, enjoying a day off and my biggest worry at this exact moment is…

darkness must pass

What are we holding on to, Sam? That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for. I have not, like many, stopped thinking about the results of last nights American election. It is heart rending, breaking, crushing in ways I couldn’t imagine until now. And yes, I am Canadian. I am lucky enough to live in a country that protects my human rights. So many are not. But this is no longer about a single…
