Autumn is just around the corner and that means an increase in wind velocity. I trimmed my bangs so they won’t blind me or get in my mouth when it’s windy. Now they’re short enough that I couldn’t care less which direction the wind blows them in, because I won’t have to constantly push my hair to the side of my face.
Last night my thoughts starting eating away at me, and it took a while before I was able to get some rest. Even when I was sleeping, my thoughts managed to sneak into my dreams, turning them into nightmares. I woke up feeling like utter shit. So instead of drowning in my own misery all day, I decided to do some yoga, followed by meditation. Then I made myself the greatest and healthiest sandwich I think I’ve ever made. I used pesto, kale, grated carrot, onion, goat cheese, balsamic vinaigrette, all between this whole grain english muffin I got at the farmer’s market, and of course in the midst of all that goodness I added a veggie patty made with sweet potato and sprouted quinoa chia. So I guess it was more of a veggie burger, rather than a sandwich.
Now I’m listening to some uplifting music, which is a nice change from all the Taking Back Sunday, A Day To Remember, La Dispute, and Dashboard Confessional I’ve been listening to non-stop the past month.
Oh, and I swear I didn’t edit these pictures. One of them just has more sunlight in it than the other one.
Enjoying my new cave (ft. batman), wondering if I should go for a walk around the neighbourhood. There’s cheese and pasta on sale at Giant Tiger, so I might go there before the new flyer comes out. Just need to get out of lazy-mode first.
I haven’t been home since Easter. A break from the city life is exactly what I need for the next week or so. I need some time to sort out my thoughts.
I really missed the fresh air, well-water, and even the trees. It sounds silly, but all those little things I took for granted when I lived here, I see and appreciate in a whole new way. I may be used to the city life, but I’ll always feel like I belong in the countryside.
I’m excited to see some of my favourite human beings this week. Some I haven’t seen in months, some it’s been years. I have some serious catching up to do with all of them. At the moment I’m content with being lazy, and spending some time with my sister. We’re just watching some rom-coms, because that’s what we always do when I come visit. Sit around, eat, and watch movies that we can (somewhat) relate to.
Just slept a solid 5 hours after a pretty excellent night. The dudes in @eyesoncaroline killed it at the Seahorse last night! Hoping they get more gigs there!
I know i haven’t been posting on here as regularly as I used to. But I definitely have to make a post tonight. It’s my last night as a 21 year old! It doesn’t even feel like I’m turning 22 tomorrow…
AND GUESS WHAT I’M DOING TOMORROW?!
I’m currently on the ferry, with two of my favourite human beings, heading over to Prince Edward Island. We’re staying with Jayden’s friends for the next 2 nights, and tomorrow I’m seeing FUCKING TEGAN AND SARA FOR FREEEEEEE, ON MY FUCKING BIRTHDAY! GAHHHH!
Sorry, but it’s finally starting to sink in that I’m about to receive the best birthday present EVER! Tegan and Sara are honestly my all-time favourite musicians. I’ll most likely ugly cry tomorrow. I bet you anything I’m going to bawl my eyes out. I did the last time I saw them…
Anyway, we’re about to get off the ferry, and venture our way over to Jayden’s friend’s place. I’m going to crash hard tonight. I need to restore as much energy as I possibly can for tomorrow!
I hope all my Canadian followers have a blast tomorrow, doing whatever you guys are planning on doing to celebrate this wonderful country’s day of birth!
Picked up this lovely swimsuit from the post office today. 😊 It only cost me 18 bucks, and the shipping was free! I’ve decided I’m done with bikinis. This is definitely more my style. 👌
Going to the park for a few hours with an adorable 3 year old ginger, is exactly what I needed to get myself out of this slump. And yes, I have worn this shirt two days in a row..
