LOL so remember yesterday when I said that I had the whole weekend off? No work, no pet sitting? I got my dates wrong, my pet sitting family isn't coming back until today, or tomorrow. Thank god it's beating down sunshine as I write this or I would be slipping into misery. I am so … Continue reading Saturday Scroll

I have joined the wordle crew. I am so exhausted. I'm pet sitting this weekend, but I fully plan on spending most of the weekend napping with the pup when he doesn't need walks or to go outside. I really wish I was in my own home, because I never sleep as well when I'm … Continue reading Saturday Scroll 03/05/2022

Firstly and most importantly: A Ukraine explainer, the historical context and what's happening now; and how to help and more options. Now, I write this blog to be an escape, from unemployment and living with my parents (how it started), to being a rapidly burning out public health worker in a pandemic. This blog provides … Continue reading Saturday Scroll

Friday Favorites: news overwhelm and favourite jeans

It feels a bit, meaningless? nihilistic? absurd? to do something like write a blog post about your social media favourites and favourite TV when Russia has invaded Ukraine thanks to one old white man's romanticization of the past and a desire for a return to the age of empires. But if I learned anything during … Continue reading Friday Favorites: news overwhelm and favourite jeans

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great week! I am currently watching Don't Look Up on Netflix as I write this and I really don't know how I feel about it. It's maybe too close to home with everything that is going on right now. I do think that is the point, but it's … Continue reading Saturday Scroll: 02/04/22

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

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

Honestly, yesterday, Thursday, I was having a sad day. Work was really getting me down. Working in public health is getting really hard, I can't stop caring about encouraging people to get vaccinated, I can't stop patiently having conversations with people about masks and vaccines and physical distancing and mental health and coping methods and … Continue reading Friday Favorites

Christmas Movie Marathon

Even though I haven't lived in the USA since 2006 I still mark the start of the Christmas season by American Thanksgiving. I do not start listening to Christmas music, I do not watch holiday movies, I often don't even start my Christmas shopping before American Thanksgiving. But American Thanksgiving was this past Thursday and … Continue reading Christmas Movie Marathon

I feel like this week's round up is going to be short, everything is very Black Friday and Cyber Monday focused at the moment and I'm not shopping this week so it doesn't resonate with me much. Honestly, I probably would be shopping if I hadn't spent so much money on my car this month, … Continue reading Saturday Scroll
