A girl trying to sleep

Today’s been a rough one for me. I barely slept last night and I had no coffee today, which is not a fun combination. And even when I tried to take a nap, that didn’t work, because naps seem to hate me. So I got to spend it yawning over and over and over again. […]

Kind Words from a Stranger

People at an airport waiting

People always say that Canadians are really nice people. Well I can confirm that is true. When I was a travelling noob, what someone told me stuck with me ever since. Don’t worry, it was not an insult, it was assuring. I was travelling from Toronto to St. Lucia in August 2016. I had spent […]

An hour ago, as I laid down writing in my journal, I started crying. And it made me realize that its completely okay to cry. No one should judge you because you feel sad or make you feel old. Thing is, we are all humans. Its part of us to cry. It happens. The same […]

They Didn’t Want Me

In the span of a week, I got an interview, did that interview, got the job and found out two days later that it was all a mistake and I was not supposed to get the job in the first place. I’m guessing you’re thinking some combination of “what the fuck”, “I’m sorry”, “oh my […]

Opening Up with Others

People in a meeting discussing something

I am a private person. I have a really hard time opening up to others, and letting them get to know me for me. And it usually takes me a while to be able to share my deepest darkest secrets. Not that I have any. So when I created this blog, I had absolutely no […]

A Girl’s Best Friend

You can only relate to how special and strong a bond between a pet and their owner is unless you have that and have experienced it, particularly in times of need. And  I am fortunate enough to say that I have that relationship with Chocolate, my puppy, my little boy. I always wonder what I […]

Printed photos on a map

Going to honest here, I got this idea from another blogger named Cass, from uniquelycass.com. I recently discovered her blog, read quite a bit of entries, particularly her monthly recaps and felt inspired to something similar. I recommend checking out her website. And since July just ended, its perfect timing. So here goes. Arristella launched. […]
