Weekly Recap: Time to Get My Sh*t Together

So I have been back in Canada for like 3 days, and I think its officially time for me to start getting my shit together. If you’re a bit lost, I spent a few weeks in the Caribbean, came back on Wednesday night and went back to school on Thursday. I know, it was a […]

Saying Goodbye

Last Day Home

5 mailboxes

Its actually really sad admitting that its my last day home, since the day went by so quickly. Will admit that it was partly because I woke up at 12pm, which I do not recommend, but I was exhausted and needed the rest so that’s okay. It was a good day, so I am happy […]
