Friday Favorites: 11/11/2022

I had every intention of writing this last night, but we didn't get back from our work trip until 9pm and it was such a long day that all I did when I got home was feed the cat, lie down on the couch for half an hour and go to bed. I do however … Continue reading Friday Favorites: 11/11/2022

Preparing for a Bleak Mid-Winter

Last winter was rough. I had never thought that I experienced seasonal affective disorder (SAD), but that was definitely exactly what I experienced, along with insane loneliness in lockdown after lockdown while living alone in a new town where I hadn't really made any friends yet, thanks to the lockdowns and work-from-home. It was the … Continue reading Preparing for a Bleak Mid-Winter

Northern Diaries: One Year in NWO

This post is a bit delayed, I haven't really figured out yet how I want to go about it. I also don't really know how I feel about this past year. I arrived in Sioux Lookout on March 14th, last year. There was no snow on the ground, and it was pretty consistently above 0 … Continue reading Northern Diaries: One Year in NWO

Happy New Years Day! Welcome to 2022. I hope you had a great night, and that you are surviving this morning. Or that you are chilling after a night in with a face mask, take out and in bed by 10 pm. I actually got a hotel room so that I could come down for … Continue reading (Hungover) Saturday Scroll: 01/01/2022

Friday Favorites: A Week to Rest

This is going to be a weird one, not following my normal format of Favorite Instagram, TV/Movie, Podcast, etc. because I haven't been consuming nearly as much digital media this week. I read 5 books, hung out with my family, threw up watching the new Spiderman movie (sorry to everyone in the 2:40 showing at … Continue reading Friday Favorites: A Week to Rest

Best of 2021 – Media: Music, TV, Movies, Podcasts, Content Creators

This year feels like one of the longest years I have ever experienced (nearly as long as this blog post OMG). I saw a meme Tuesday that said that the Bernie mittens meme was only 11 months ago, and it feels like that's a lifetime ago, but also yesterday at the same time. I feel … Continue reading Best of 2021 – Media: Music, TV, Movies, Podcasts, Content Creators

Things you can do when you have a concussion

Well, firstly, it should be said that if you have a concussion you should not be reading this. I know how hard it is to completely avoid screens, we communicate with our employers, clients, friends, and family all on screens now and how can you tell people that you have a concussion or ask for … Continue reading Things you can do when you have a concussion

When this goes live, I will hopefully be well on the road on the way home. Editing Laura: I was on the road, that's why this isn't going up until Sunday evening. I didn't finish this because I got busy packing Friday night, drove all day Saturday, and just arrived at my parents like an … Continue reading Saturday Scroll: 12/18/2021

Northern Diaries: Plans for Christmas and New Years in Southern Ontario

I am so excited to be heading home and to bop around Southern Ontario for 17 days (well four of those will be driving to and from Southern Ontario). I am a bit worried that Ms. Omicron will ruin this for me, but I am keeping my vaccinated fingers and toes crossed in hope. I … Continue reading Northern Diaries: Plans for Christmas and New Years in Southern Ontario

Cute stocking stuffers. Why do long drives feel so good? I have wanted to do a sleepover at Ikea ever since I saw that Kelsey from The Sorry Girls got to do one as part of an influencer trip. Well, a bunch of random Danish people got to do that after a snowstorm and it … Continue reading Saturday Scroll: 12/11/2021
