Mailbox Friday

Outgoing cards. I really do miss crafting. I also miss painting. I was hoping to get a regular penpal from someone in Japan or Ireland because I’ve been meaning to go there for the longest time. It would be nice to learn what it’s like from a local. But, penpal sites don’t work like they…

The Best of September & October

I started nursing school in September and it’s been eventful. Whenever I’m tempted to slack off, I remind myself that I will pay for procastination later, and I won’t like it one bit. Whenever I’m on the edge of anxiety, I remind myself that this hardwork will pay off in the long run. I also…

The Best of August

I’ve had a busy social life this month. Gosh, this makes me a bit afraid of winter. I also just turned 30. If I’m supposed to feel some kind of dread, it hasn’t sunk in… yet. In July, I watched Radiohead in Toronto with my boyfriend, who is a big fan. Big is an understatement….

Montreal, Quebec City and the Quebec Countryside Part 3

For Part 1, click here. For Part 2, click here. (Night 5) Sacré-Coeur There were no hotels that we trusted nearby, so we had to resort to AirBnB. No choice. But, this time it’s different. Our experience was actually good. The hosts were a young couple who spend half of the year in Canada, and…

Montreal, Quebec City and the Quebec Countryside Part 2

For Part 1, click here. (Nights 3 & 4) Chicoutimi We’re near the fjord and exhausted from all the travelling. We decided we’ll stay for 2 nights at Auberge le Parasol. The room had a nice view of the Saguenay River. But it could use an update. The room was clean but the furniture and…

The Best of June & July

If you’ve been following my playlists, you probably noticed that I didn’t post one in June. So, you’re getting 40 songs from me this month. Highlights: Favourite song: Hunnybee by Unknown Mortal Orchestra I’ve been eyeing this band for years now. Still waiting to get into one of their shows, though. They’ve managed to distill…

Above: Outgoing cards I’ve officially slowed down on this postcarding hobby. Summer has been intensely busy because, like other Canadians, I make the most of a warm summer. I’ve also taken advantage of not being in classes to relax. The next couple of years will be go-go-go for me. I’m so excited for that but…

Heliconia (False Bird of Paradise)

I made a painting based on the drawing on this post. I did this on an 8×10, 3/4inch canvas using acrylic paint, while looking after a 14 year old Yorkie, because I am hustling, y’all ;). I was inspired to make this while binge-watching Alan Titchmarsh’s Love Your Garden. I’m looking forward to making more…

  Above: Outgoing postcards I know, that’s a lot of postcards. They were not all sent out individually and it’s been a while since I updated y’all. I held a few lotteries in my Facebook groups to get rid of some cards after a little spring cleaning. I have a little sad story on Postcrossing….

The Best of May

This month, I was not really busy with anything because my head is in summer mode. But, I did go to one music event at The Drake Hotel this month: Amber Mark (Opening Act: Demo Taped). Click here for snippets of their performances. I’m the kind of person who arrives at a venue immediately after…
