If you know me, you will know that I am big into clothes and fashion. I’m into experimenting and wearing things that stand out to me, even if they aren’t necessarily the most ‘wearable’ or ‘fashionable’ things. For me, what I wear and how I present myself is huge. Sure, you might say that it’s … Continue reading Lets talk about fashuuun
Relationships in the 21st century are messy. Since the rise of the Internet technology has taken over the world, and our love lives have grown ever chaotic. I’ve been thinking about this post for a while, but have been nervous to write it. It seems too personal, too real. But, as a writer I want … Continue reading Has technology taken the ‘romance’ out of dating?
When I think of Canada never before have I thought of the ocean. I’ve thought of large bodies of water, sure, lakes for miles. I’ve thought of mountains and trees and snow and greenery, but never the ocean. This past summer I took a trip out to the West Coast for the first time. I … Continue reading A trip to the ocean
Ah the fall season is upon us. You know the one pop culture has told you about: Pumpkin Spice everything and sweater weather and flannel shirts and apple picking and crunchy leaves. Before I moved to Canada, while I understood the aesthetic of it all, I never really got that ‘fall feeling’. Where I come … Continue reading Falling in love with fall
The Graduate Bug. If you’re aged 23 or over, a recent graduate, or heck, even a not-so-recent graduate, you might have been plagued with the Graduate Bug. Its something that sees us in droves, like zombies: our unpaid debt dragging behind us, our university degrees emblazoned round of necks. This bug I speak of is … Continue reading The Graduate Bug
Today an incident inspired me to finally put this post together. A little spur of the moment I’ll admit, and I did have some dreamy, travel posts lined up, but this just seemed so important and pressing I had to write. I want to talk about how “no, means no”. I want to talk about … Continue reading No means NO
Dedicating an entire, unsponsored post to a coffee shop might seem a little bizarre. Especially to anyone who has known me for longer than six months, and who is aware of my previous aversion to the mahogany roast. Well boys and girls, things changed this summer, and I pulled up my big girl pants and … Continue reading More than just a cup of coffee….
July 23rd marked my six months in Canada. Six months. That’s about that's about 25 weeks, 181 days, 4,344 hours since I left my family and friends and chased a dream I've had since I was a kid. Six months isn't that long in the grand scheme of things. It isn’t a serious relationship, or … Continue reading Six Months
Today I had my first bad day skateboarding. What a first world problem. Today was the first time I’ve ever had a fully bad day skating. By that I mean that from beginning to end I found it a real push just to enjoy myself because I just felt so bothered by the whole thing. … Continue reading The Brick Wall of Fear (a First World problem)
Blogging seemed like a great idea initially. I love writing; it gives me a release and lets me practise my chosen career path, plus is bulks up a portfolio and shows future employers that I’m always active. A win, win situation, right? I’m not so sure. The thing is, with today’s online society, we are … Continue reading Finding my voice
