New Year, New Me?

We’ve all heard it a million times. As soon as the ball drops on New Year’s Eve, and after all the hugging and reminiscing about last year is over, everyone begins working on their “new” life.
The whole, “New Year, New Me” attitude has completely taken over our society. We obsess over becoming happier, more active, kinder and more accomplished every year, and then bear the weight of feeling like a failure when we fail to meet these resolutions.

Under the Weather: A Playlist

Let’s face it. Being sick during the holidays is the worst. I spent the majority of my day in bed today watching “The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants” and drinking tea. Believe me, it’s not as good as it sounds.
Feeling under the weather is never fun, but there are ways to turn an uncomfortable sick day into a day filled with relaxation.

We may all have aspirations and dreams. Those ideas that keep us up at night, playing themselves out perfectly in our head as we envision how amazing it would feel to actualize them. At night, we are passionate and fixated on our goals, and when we wake up in the morning we are met head on with reality.
Or is it fear?

Taking Your Time

At the beginning of the summer I wrote a post called “A Look Back: First Year. I spent a lot of time talking about what I did in my first year of university to help me get through the workload and all of the changes I was getting used too. Looking back on all of the things that helped me last year, I have to say that everything has drastically changed this year. If first year was a transition, second year has been an even bigger one.

Change it Up

As I sat down at my desk today for the first time in a while, I realized how important it is to change things up every once in awhile. The weather has been getting progressively colder and I’ve found myself gravitating to the warm mass of pillows and blankets on my bed when it’s time to be productive instead of allowing myself to work in front of my window.

Autumn walk with Adam!

Halifax is beautiful in the fall. Yes, I know I just explained how wet and gloomy it can be here. But when the sun is out and the leaves are in full colour; there is nothing nicer than going on a walk around the neighbourhood. My boyfriend Adam came and took a special visit out to see me a few weeks ago. We spent an afternoon with my new Canon and went out to explore Halifax! Here are some pictures from our outing.

And then summer was over…

Well well well. It seems like we have made it to the middle of September! I feel as if I went away for camping and blinked and found myself sitting in class in Halifax. Isn’t it crazy how quickly summer passes by?
I’m terribly sorry that I have been so MIA. It has been over a month since I was able to really focus on writing anything solid down, so bare with me as I attempt to get back into the routine I set in the summer.

Weekly Highlights

After a really nice weekend, I had no interest in going to work on Monday. But as motivation, I told myself that if I got through the day, I’d be one step closer to enjoying my Grandma’s pie on Canada Day! It worked!

Reaching 95!

Can you imagine celebrating your 95th birthday? To be able to look back on all those years that you have lived and think about the years to come? At 18, it seems impossible that I’ll live that long. But if I do, I can only hope that I’m just as elegant and graceful as my Great Great Aunt Jess.
