This again

I feel like I do this a lot. But I am, of course, doing this again. By this, I mean writing and (hopefully) posting a blog entry. Yes, I have tried this many times. Yes, I have consistently failed at this. Yes, I will probably fail at this attempt. But here’s why I hope I … Continue reading

My First Physical

Physicals are weird. I had my first one a few months back. Yeah, yeah, sue me for waiting so long to get one. It’s not my fault I had a late sexual peak and a languid hesitation towards making doctor’s appointments. Anyway, I know physicals are all important and I will definitely continue to be checked out … Continue reading

#fbf

Last night I was looking at photos from my trip to Europe. I have been craving a trip so hard lately but life has kept my mind in other places. In an attempt to relive some of my European adventures, let me tell you a tale that is basically the scariest and funniest thing that … Continue reading

Oversharing

So I do this thing. I overshare. Oh, you’d like to know what that means? That means that when you want me to stop talking, I continue. That means when you are starting to get uncomfortable with what I am talking about, I continue. That means that when you leave the room to go to … Continue reading

I’m back

From where, you ask? Nowhere (but I did go to Hawaii for a hot second). And also everywhere. I’ve been working my worky job. I’ve been carving out time in my oddly busy schedule for my friends. I’ve been aiming to be more healthy without actually making any life changes. I’ve been scheming for bachelorette … Continue reading

Three Weeks in Europe

This is a totally cavalier post. I am just, you know, checking in from Dublin after exploring the rest of Europe for over two weeks. I’m not bragging at all, I promise. I mean, in a normal three weeks at home, I get to do all of the following things: Go to a sex show … Continue reading

Man Crush Monday

I saw some bands play this past weekend. Some of these bands consist of men. I would like to dedicate today to such men. Yes, that is right… I have rounded up some musical fellas for Man Crush Monday. Tim McIlrath [Rise Against] Tim, Tim, Tim… Oh how I love the intensity of your raspy, screamy … Continue reading

Nobody Likes You When You’re 23

Well kids, it’s official. I’m old. Dying, basically. I turned 23 last week. To be honest, I want to say all of the generic bull shit that you say on your birthday: “Oh I don’t feel any older.” “Oh thanks for all of the birthday wishes.” “Oh people are the best.” “Oh birthday people start … Continue reading

Imaginary (but very probable) Conversations with my Dad

As you may know, I am living at home. With my pops. If you know him, you know he’s quite the character. If you know me, you know I’m basically the same person. Nah, that’s not true. We have some differences. My dad is one of those dads… well, basically, he’s a dad. He’s a … Continue reading

The Fruits of Labour

Work, at this moment, is my life. I am 22. This is should not how things should be. Yet I am so content with how my life has progressed. My goal right now is to be constantly learning, constantly improving myself. Despite the fact that I have “taken a leave of absence” from school, I … Continue reading

#lastnight at the @metric and @julytalk show. pure happiness. ALSO, want to know how July Talk started their set? by acknowledging they were on treaty territory and by explaining what that means and how settlers need to unlearn and relearn our relationships with Indigenous Peoples. 🙌 the audience clapped for that. my heart clapped for that. I am not First Nations, Inuit, or Metis but as someone who is working to be a better ally, I felt the impact of that, more so than a canned 1-sentence land acknowledgment that I receive in a university classroom. to hear that in a public meeting space felt like a shift towards having the right discussions about settler colonialism outside of academia. once I heard that, my respect for July Talk deepened. they’re definitely not doing the most when it comes to understanding Indigenous issues (we could all do better) but they’re doing something with their platform. and they played a rad show. 👍 🦄
last weekend⛷
yesterday was a good day. today is not. here is a squirrel. hope everyone out there is surviving this Monday. #monday
environmental history field trip to Elk Island National Park. this tree was one of three massive uprooted trees we came across. we weren’t sure why or how they were uprooted but the amount of earth that came with this one was impressive. right after this tree, we saw a really cute squirrel. today was a good day. 👍
history class field trip number 2: a walking tour of @oldstrathcona. grateful for being able to learn and practice history in public through my education and hopeful that I can pursue similar approaches in my career 😊 #publichistory #yeg
