Ch-ch-ch changes

Exploring the world comes at a cost. My parents will be having nightmares about my safety. My cats will have nobody to sleep with at night. My friends might turn into different people when I’m gone. I’ll be celebrating my birthday without many of the people I love. Thanksgiving? I’ll be celebrating that ¬†North American … Continue reading

This is Happening

I’m back from B.C. and a lot has happened in the last week. For one, it turns out I’m going to Kenya instead of South Africa. My flights have been changed (for a significant fee), but it’s for the best. Instead of one safari, I’m going on two. They are both camping safaris where I … Continue reading

Life is a Mix Tape

Okay, I know I should be rolling my shirts into big cottony cigars and relegating my liquids into little containers and choosing what book I want to pretend to read on the plane while I secretly imagine what it would be like to be in a plane crash but…I’m distracted.

Headin’ West

Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be sitting on a airplane heading to the land of mountains and unrelenting rain, Vancouver.

Come on, Christ! 2) I’ve updated the Photos/Music section … Continue reading

The fire that Pepto just can’t quench

The last three things I googled should tell you a little bit about where I am in my life at this moment. 1) Au Pairing in France 2) Teaching English in China 3) Communications graduate programs in Australia As you can see, I am quite literally all over the map. It’s not that I don’t … Continue reading

They only want you when you’re 17, when you’re 21 you’re no fun

I saw Girl Talk at the Sound Academy in Toronto last night, and it made me realize some things. Don’t get me wrong, I had a great time and danced, well, violently. He played some of my favorites, and even though it was my third time seeing him, nothing had gotten old. The balloons floating … Continue reading

Be a Donor

If you live in Ontario, recently you may have seen a commercial advertising a website, http://www.beadonor.ca. This website allows Ontario residents to register to be an organ donor online. The commercial may look sad, and a lot of the stuff that goes along with organ donation is. However, this new system is the opposite of … Continue reading
