October in Review

I was so surprised when I was going through my camera roll for this at how many hiking/outdoorsy pics there were. This is my most outdoorsy month ever in my life. It was really nice though, we had pretty great weather for October in Northwestern Ontario. We don't have any snow and I am extremely … Continue reading October in Review

September Empties

If I have noticed anything writing these posts it's that I follow a cycle, extreme waste reduction to hyperconsumption to feeling guilty about spending so much on beauty products and consuming so much plastic packaging, to not buying anything and then it starts again. And I am definitely in a not buying anything phase, even … Continue reading September Empties

September in Review

September was a fantastic month, an absolutely insanely busy month but it was so fun and fulfilling and I really needed it. Also today is Truth and Reconciliation Day, if you live on settled land please take the time today to think about the loss and suffering that Indigenous Peoples endured for colonization to occur … Continue reading September in Review

What I Read in August

After an insane month of reading in July, it's only fitting I guess that I only read one book in August. Beautiful World, Where Are You - Sally Rooney Overall, I'm still not certain what I think of Sally Rooney's books, I have now read Normal People and this book, and I'm not sure if … Continue reading What I Read in August

August Slipped Away

August is such a weird month, I think especially since I now live so far north and have such clear memories of how miserable I was this past winter August felt like there was so much pressure. To do things, to have fun, to go to the beach, to swim. But then it was also … Continue reading August Slipped Away

July in Review

I really got into my morning walks, especially since town beach opens and it's about 11 minutes into my walk and I walk 15 minutes one way and then turn around and come back (you have to pay attention to the time in the morning) it's just always so pretty and peaceful at the beach. … Continue reading July in Review

June in Review

June was such a great month, it was so social, it was a little expensive, but it was so worth it. It was probably the best month since like January 2020, it was great. I travelled (not super far, but did leave the country, went out for dinner, went to a concert, celebrated friends, and … Continue reading June in Review

Financial Fitness Check-In: April 2022

March and April have been such a change from January and February this year that I almost feel like I have whiplash, I definitely still feel confused about so much. Like why do I feel guiltier about spending money, now that I actually have some than I did when I was constantly maxing out my … Continue reading Financial Fitness Check-In: April 2022

April in Review

I didn't take that many pictures this month, a product of working too much and poor mental health. The weather seems to be making a proper turn for the better finally, and I have a couple trips planned. One of my new friends said that if you are choosing to live here for the career … Continue reading April in Review

Financial Fitness Check-In: February 2022

2022 so far is the year that I set a goal of never using my overdraft protection and the year that I am consistently using my overdraft protection. Although I do think that March, with all the overtime I've been putting in, the COVID pay, and the pet sitting I have booked, I think this … Continue reading Financial Fitness Check-In: February 2022
