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

Goodbye July

Well, you may have noticed that July is no longer. Last time we talked I was on the brink of travel. San Francisco treated me well. And I turned 22. That is my July in a nutshell. Everything else has been… um… less than interesting. That is why I haven’t written, folks. And I’m upset … Continue reading

Theme Tuesdays #11

I feel like I’ve been doling out a lot of solid advice lately. So right now I’m in an advice-giving mood. Today is … TIPS ON TUESDAY!!!! Yeah, it’s late. Whatever. I’m not giving you tips on time management. I hate being late but it’s something I generally tend to be. So yeah. Deal with it. … Continue reading

Theme Tuesdays #10 {otherwise known as “History Sticks To Your Feet”}

Today SUCKS. I don’t think this post will even attempt to salvage any potential goodness this Tuesday holds. So I’m sorry if this brings you down a notch. Today’s theme is … TENDER TUESDAY.  Usually I want to turn my brooding tenderness into something a little more creative, like all great artists do. But I don’t … Continue reading

Tomorrow, I fear will be a very horrible, slow day. That being said, I want to get back into my rhythm of this new, … 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
