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

A Weekend in Winnipeg

I drove to Winnipeg from where I live, it took about 5 hours. The highway was flooded over then, so I took the detour and ended up on this dirt road. It was actually alright, and I would much rather avoid flooding out my engine and take a few minutes longer to get there. And … Continue reading A Weekend in Winnipeg

Spring/Summer Trip Planning

This is so thrilling, I am properly making plans for several small trips for May, June, and July and I am so excited. Pre-pandemic and pre-Sioux Lookout they probably wouldn't have been high on my list, but without any travel since January 2020, just going somewhere I don't live nor my parents live is thrilling. … Continue reading Spring/Summer Trip Planning

Spring ’22 Bucket List

It feels a bit absurd to be making spring plans when it is currently snowing and there is a ton of snow still on the ground, but we are well into April and continuing to tell myself that spring is truly on the way is what is keeping me hanging on to the ledge of … Continue reading Spring ’22 Bucket List

And on Monday, February 14th, they did a newsletter on workplace romances and the week before they had a question box on their Instagram and I responded to it, and … Continue reading February in Review

Travel Dreaming

I really really want to travel again this year, my last trip was in January 2020, and it was a "work trip", for my then-volunteer job, and before that it was New York City in August 2018, and I have the itch. Northern Ireland Really this is Ireland and the UK, as I would also … Continue reading Travel Dreaming

2022 Goals/Plans/Aspirations

I don't know what to call this post or these things. Calling them plans seems like asking for failure as we head into the third calendar year of the pandemic, when nearly all plans have been dashed, destroyed, and ruined. Including the majority of my Christmas break plans, so I guess having plans ruined is … Continue reading 2022 Goals/Plans/Aspirations

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

November in Review

Did anyone else kind of miss the mess that is getting ready for a night out, getting ready has always been one of the most fun parts of going out. My friend brought over this gold flake champagne, I didn't actually have any of it, but it sure looked pretty in the dishes the next … Continue reading November in Review
