Saying Goodbye

Its such a bitter sweet feeling saying goodbye. In some ways I am excited to get back to Canada, and whatever that awaits, which I hope is good. But the other part of me is fucking terrified and sad to leave because this is my home. I am leaving behind my family and C and […]

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 […]

A Scarf in August

I feel like we all buy things that we do not necessarily need. Either we buy it because its on sale, we want to add to our collection or we convince ourselves that there is a use for it one day. And don’t you lie to yourself. I know you’re guilty of it. So tonight […]

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. […]

From Enemies to Besties

It’s that time of year where I normally go see my dentist. I usually go in January and August for my semi-annual check-ups and cleaning.  She’s warned me over and over again that I am more prone to cavities so I need to be very careful, and this is why I take it seriously. I […]

The Last Two Weeks

Holding a drink in a backyard

[August 8th 2019] I’m writing this, sitting in my balcony with Chocolate next to me. Right now all that is going through my head, is how much I am going to miss this place when I leave. I only have two more weeks left before I have to go back to Canada. And if I […]

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 […]
