I’ve had a jam-packed week of politics. I’m working on a news story for our college show this week and it’s been a long, long process. My interest in government and politics and law goes as far as my love for Judge Judy … Continue reading →
I have the most fun putting together posts with all original photos, but I really do like rounding up a crop of pretty pictures from around the web to show you guys. On a chilly Monday full of schoolwork and meetings I’m … Continue reading →
I’m back home in Alberta after a relaxing 10 day stay in Saskatchewan with Tim. Even though I’m only 6 weeks into the semester, I really appreciated a week off to just mellow out with no where to be at … Continue reading →
I had one of those outstandingly rare amazing Mondays. It was so, so great. It has felt like Friday all day long and if I could turn this day into confetti and throw it on myself daily I think I … Continue reading →
To the tune of Leslie Gore’s “It’s My Party” of course I recently did a clean sweep of my iPhone photos to make room for the iOS7 download (I like to live a few months behind the rest of the world). While the update is still a work in progress, I did come across a pretty funny trend in the photos I had saved to my phone for inspiration. Boobs!
I had such a good and full weekend. On Friday I saw a play that I know pretty well, since I was in the cast of the original version over six years ago. It was really fun to see who was playing my old part, and more fun to sit there as all the lines and blocking and memories came back to me. Saturday night I went to a duelling piano bar I’ve been wanting to go to for ages and it was even better than I expected- my favourite part being when they played my guilty pleasure/favourite song. This week my school crew is preparing for our first news show that will air on TV this weekend (eeks!) and this Tuesday marks my first ever ballet lesson that I couldn’t be more excited about. Somehow I have found time in my busy schedule to miss Tim like crazy, and have been thinking a lot about love lately. I feel so lucky to spend every day in love, drink coffee in love, go to bed in love, listen to songs in love, and write in love. I think being in love makes me a better person.
**Sidenote for all y’all watching the Grammys with me tonight: Taylor Swifts emotion behind her performance gave me shivers and Lordes humble and sweet acceptances speeches are too loveable. Can’t imagine what a fun atmosphere it is there tonight. So from boobs to plays to pianos to love, I’m wishing everyone a happy last week of January. xo
Left: Today I made a stop at a thrift store on my way home from school to help snap me out of the Monday blues I was seriously suffering from. Even though I left empty handed, this crazy little getup … Continue reading →
As humans I find we get really accustomed to forgiving. It’s one of those things you learn as a kid, when someone says they’re sorry- we say “it’s okay!” As I’ve learned in my life, it’s not always that simple and some people just don’t deserve forgiveness (at which point you give ‘em a swift boot out of your life and move along). However what I’ve been thinking about lately is forgiving yourself. I’ve forgiven myself for tons of things, like forgetting to bring a crucial prop onstage during a performance, spilling champagne down the front of my graduation dress, laughing at a cats funeral, being hung over in Vatican City, baby talking my cat, my Junior High Nexopia account, upside down wall twerking in front of all my teachers, melting a deep fryer, cutting my own bangs, drinking coffee until I jitter, throwing my retainer in the garbage at subway and for never learning the Single Ladies dance like I promised myself I would… But the thing I’m really struggling with is forgiving myself for my car accident back in October. It weighs heavy on my brain all the time. It’s a weird feeling, because if someone else caused me that kind of distress I would be so angry with them.. But it was me who did it and it’s very strange being angry with yourself over something you can’t fix. I’ve been looking for the words to wrap this up on a positive note but maybe the positivity just comes from being open and honest and throwing the thought out into the universe that I am sorry- and hoping for a more at peace brain in the future. xox, Happy Thursday!
I love cruising with the windows down on a hot sunny day, shades on, listening to music and slurping away on a Shaken-Iced-Tea-Lemonade… provided I’m not the one doing the driving. I’m an excellent passenger, but a terrible driver. It’s not … Continue reading →
[Photo credit: Top Left, Top Right, Bottom Right] I love the idea of a clean slate on a fresh year, but I’ve never been one to make resolutions that I actually intended to keep (last Christmas I can remember telling … Continue reading →
Happy snowy Tuesday if you’re anywhere near me (and if you’re not.. you just keep living that dream). As the year itself starts to wrap up (28 days until NYE!), my school semester is doing the same and its going to be a … Continue reading →
