Happy Friday! I had to take a few photos for a school assignment this week and I decided to take them down at the beach on a perfectly grey, windy fall day we had over the weekend.

Best part of the week: I was in a super fantastic mood on Wednesday. I had a great sleep the night before, I ate food I loved all day long, I had just the right amount of caffeine, and I was with some of my favourite people all day! 

Worst part of the week: Even though I was in a super great mood on Wednesday, there was a major car accident right near where I go to school and it caused all the roads in the area to turn into brutal streets of non-moving cars. So that super sucked.

Something I'm grateful for: This week I am feeling grateful for the fact that we weren't assigned a ton of homework for the weekend. We've got a few projects on the go so there's still oodles of work to do but extra homework assignments weren't really given out much this week so I am grateful that I can spend the weekend working mostly on the projects I already have on the go.

Something I'm looking forward to: I don't know when it's coming but sometime in the next few weeks/couple of months I'm going back to Victoria. It'll likely only be for a day trip but I have been missing it so so so much lately and any time at all that I can spend there is going to be freaking awesome.

86) Have you ever flown a kite? I believe I have. I vaguely remember being a kid and having taking a kite out with the fam and trying to get it to fly. I don't remember if it worked or not so obviously it wasn't that big of an event... I also think I might have tried making one, too, at some point? But clearly kite flying wasn't a big part of my childhood...

Happy weekending friends! May it be full of tea, books, friends, family, and cozy blankets!



Best part of the week: I had a mock job interview with one of my teachers at school this week and I slayed it. I felt super confident about the work I was presenting and I got great feedback from my teacher so the whole experience, while slightly nerve-wracking, was definitely a good one.

Worst part of the week: Daylight savings is not my favourite. Yes we got an extra hour of sleep on Sunday but driving home in the pitch black every single day is laaaaame. 

Something I’m grateful for: Left over Halloween candy.

Something I’m excited for: We have a long weekend and I am very much looking forward to spending time by myself working away on portfolio projects for school and getting cozy while it rains all weekend long. 

734) Do you have to wear glasses? I do wear glasses when I’m working on the computer or reading or doing other things that strain my eyes. I have excellent vision for all things far away but I tend to get headaches when I’m working on things close up.

Happy weekending everyone and happy Remembrance Day to my fellow Canadians! I hope you have a great long weekend and take some time to appreciate our wonderful country that men and women have fought so hard to protect.



Best part of the week: I had a really good week! But I think the best part was feeling on top of things. I scheduled every hour of my day on Saturday to make sure that I got everything done that I needed to do for the week so I could enjoy the Halloween festivities and not feel super stressed out. Staying on top of things really helps reduce stress... who knew?!

Worst part of the week: I've been struggling with coming up with just the right balance in my life and this last little while I've been feeling pretty thinly stretched. I don't want to complain because so much of it is great and I'm so happy with where I'm at but there were times this week where I didn't totally nail the balancing act and I felt rundown and a bit depleted.

Something I'm grateful for: My cozy space. Moving back home in March meant trading in my beautiful apartment in Victoria for a garage-turned-games-room-turned-bedroom in my parents house. Although it was hard (and definitely still is sometimes) I have a really great room that's taken on a whole new feel over the last few days as I've fallified it and made it feel even cozier. Living at home could have meant being in a tiny bedroom upstairs right across the hall from the rest of my family, but instead I got a big cozy bedroom with a fridge, a couch, an entertainment system, and lots of space to work, so for that I am very, very grateful.

Something I'm looking forward to: my dad's band is playing locally tonight night and I'm going with my boyfriend, my sister, her boyfriend, her friend, and her friend's boyfriend and I think it's going to be really fun! I'm looking forward to listening to some great tunes, watching people dance ridiculously, maaaaaaaaybe participating in some ridiculous dancing, and spending the night with some pretty rad peeps.

7) Do you have any pets? Yep, 2 - a cat named Elphie (after Elphaba from the musical Wicked) and a dog named Finn (his full name is Finnigan Winston but good luck getting him to listen to that, actually, good luck getting to listen to much...)

That's it from me this week folks! I hope you have a great weekend and if it's snowing where you live, be sure to bundle up, and if it's scorching hot where you live, please send some warmth up my way!
