Mid-Week Procrastination

To be honest it is a lot harder to get material for these posts now and I need it even more. It's actually such a break to make this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqzsz90lDa0 I'm all about shopping small, so I love that The Sorry Girls made this video. I am definitely going to get a planter/basket from Viridi. … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination

March in Review

This was a big month! I made posting here a priority, got a new job, moved across the province, quarantined and then got out of quarantine (getting out of quarantine is one of the best moments). I baked this pretty cake. I'm really wanting to master some of my family's traditional recipes. I don't know … Continue reading March in Review

My biggest leadership lesson

I wrote in my post on National Badge Day about how and why I still volunteer with my sorority. I felt kind of fake writing it because at that point I had already announced to the organization that I was stepping away. Essentially, I felt as though I hadn’t really figured out how to balance … Continue reading My biggest leadership lesson

Moving far, far away

So if you have been following along, you will know that I got a new job in Northwestern Ontario! (If you aren't in the loop, you can read all about it here). But this town is about a 19 hour drive straight from my parent's place in the Ottawa Valley, and nearly the exact same … Continue reading Moving far, far away

Mid-Week Procrastination

This hits differently now that I am employed again. Wednesday has more hope, structure, and less dread than it did while I was unemployed, but I'm writing this paragraph on Monday evening and when I woke up this morning I struggled hard. I was exhausted. I'm not sure if it's moving, starting work, quarantine, or … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination

Unemployed No More: I got a job!!

I've been applying for jobs for about a year now. Starting last March I was kind of lightly applying, like once a week or when I saw something that seemed really appealing, then over the summer I set a goal of applying to a job a day. I frequently didn't meet that goal, sometimes like … Continue reading Unemployed No More: I got a job!!

Obsessions: March 20th

Whew y'all. It has been a week. If you read my last Obsessions post (my most recent post, I'm sorry a week is too long!) I mentioned that we were on the road to Thunder Bay from the Ottawa Valley. I got a job up in Northwestern Ontario, about 4 hours north of Thunder Bay! … Continue reading Obsessions: March 20th

Obsessions: March 13

This will be going live while I hit the road to drive from my parents’ home in the Ottawa Valley, Ontario to a small town in Northwestern Ontario for a new job! I’m so excited to be employed again! I’m excited to start being able to work towards my financial goals again, to cook my … Continue reading Obsessions: March 13

Mid-Week Procrastination: Engagements, Babies, and Agatha All Along

This week I am feeling both the joy of warmer temperature and sunshine that actually has some heat to it and still very much running into the pandemic wall and remnants of seasonal doldrums. However, Monday was International Women's Day which means that there are all kinds of lovely stories about women on the internet, … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination: Engagements, Babies, and Agatha All Along

Black History Month Round-Up

Over on my Instagram in February 2021 I did a daily story feature of a different favourite Black creator. Sometimes it was influencers, others artists, poets, and dancers; they were almost always female. But I was choosing the people that I truly admire their content or their work and those people happened to be women. … Continue reading Black History Month Round-Up
