Living Alone Diaries: Being Prepared

If you regularly read this blog, then you will know that I have recently had a cold, the first time I've been sick since 2019. Because it had been so long since I was sick (and since I had moved twice since the last time I was sick) I didn't have any cold/flu meds in … Continue reading Living Alone Diaries: Being Prepared

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

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

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

Friday Favorites: 07/22/22

It's been a while since I've done one of these, I was having a hard time filling them in each week, I just wasn't watching as much TV, listening to as many podcasts, or maybe it is just that I'm not currently getting all my serotonin from media in the summer. Social Media Favorite: Matilda … Continue reading Friday Favorites: 07/22/22

Summer ’22 Bucket List

With Victoria Day weekend, May Long, May 2-4 whatever you want to call it, summer in Canada has officially begun, even if it is still cool and wet and this whole summer is predicted to be (good for wildfire reduction, not so great for summer fun). So it's time to think about all the things … Continue reading Summer ’22 Bucket List

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

(Hungover) Saturday Scroll: 01/01/2022

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
