Mailbox Friday

  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…

Above: Outgoing cards Finally, I’m free of final exams, I can write this post now. I think I’ve come to the point where the excitement of Postcrossing is slowly dying down. I think the idea of getting postcards from strangers is no longer as meaningful as it initially was for me. I am thinking of…

The Best of April

I’m back with this month’s favourites! First off, I’ve been busy on the live music front. Have you ever had that moment where you followed a musician you admire on Twitter and you discovered that they had just been in your city, and you totally missed out on that? Yup, that was me. So, I…

Mailbox (Good) Friday

Above: Outgoing cards I’ve been busy because the term is ending, and some of my professors are on strike. Nobody knows when this will end. This, obviously, causes a lot of anxiety among students, especially those with summer internships, those who are graduating, and those who have already booked their vacations. Luckily, I didn’t book…

The Best of March

My favourite song: I Wanna Go by Quiet Luke So, I asked him on Facebook if he is coming to Toronto to perform live. He told me he’s waiting for more fans. So, please, be a fan, so we can have him over the border. But, I also don’t mind going to NYC because I…

30 Days, 30 Movies

First 10 movies. I got this idea of doing something for 30 days from a TED Talk by Matt Cutts. I knew that if I want to get back into the habit of appreciating movies, I have to set aside some time for it. 30 days did not sound like an awful lot of time…

  Above: Outgoing cards I’m gonna go on a brief rant here. I posted this on a Facebook group. Whenever I offer to swap, I try to be as proactive as possible. I provide my album link and I give as much information as possible. One of the things that irk me is when I…

I just found out I don’t like postcard books. Above (L-R): The Cutest Sneeze In The World, Tokidoki, Magnum Magnum, Another Day In Paradise From these 4 collections, I can honestly say that only Another Day In Paradise is the only one where ALL cards are worth sending out. Although, postcard books make per unit…

The Best Of February

Here’s this month’s playlist of my favourites. Favourite song: Short of Breath by Fake Laugh One day I kept singing the chorus over and over until I realised I was singing “short of BREAD” instead of “breath.” Which reminds me… it’s time to go grocery shopping. Album worth mentioning: Talkie Walkie by Air Get all…

Today is technically Saturday but, what the heck, it’s only been 18 minutes since. πŸ™‚ Reading week was pretty productive on the sending front because no classes and I have been trying to balance out my postcard collection. Using the been app, I can visually indicate which countries I have postcards of. This is especially…

Mailbox Friday

Reading week just started for me! So, I will have more time to craft my postcards. Yay-ya! I’ve started sharing my hobby to a few of my friends and the response has always been “oh, that’s cute!” The best reaction is “I think I will try this.” Don’t think about it, just try it. I…
