Low Battery

January 21, 2019 | Comments

This morning I slept in. My alarm didn’t go off since I forgot to charge my phone before I went to bed. I still woke up in time to not be late for work but it was not a good feeling to suddenly wake up in a panic, picking up my phone, seeing that it’s out of battery, and not knowing what time it was. Staring at my dead phone, I was immediately reminded of a Reddit post that I had read a couple days prior.

Hello World (for the nth time)

January 16, 2019 | Comments

My therapist told me to write a journal so that I could solidify my thoughts. Maybe, if I write things down, I could get a better sense of my self. So I’m going to start. I’ve written on this blog many, many, many times that I’ve hesitated writing in a physical journal in fear of my mother reading it. She has read my journal in the past (recently too, within the past two years and I’m sure many times before that) and confronted me about it.

My 168 Hours

January 2, 2019 | Comments

A couple weeks ago, I read 168 Hours by Laura Vanderkam. Although I thought the book was a hot mess, there were some useful exercises in there. For example, one of the exercises was to record everything you did for an entire week. I love obsessively recording stats about my life so I jumped on it. Here’s the raw data (rounded to the nearest hour): Activity Hours Sleep 48 Work 47 Ray 24 Travel 15 Internet 8 Socialize 5 Movie 3 168 Hours 2 Emily 3 Washroom 2 Breakfast 2 Get Ready 1 Church 1 Netflix 1 Pray 1 Journal 1 Dinner 1 Read 1 Investing 0.

My 2018

December 31, 2018 | Comments

2018 was a rollercoaster of a year. It felt like the longest year of my entire university career. So much had happened in the past twelve months that I never thought it would be possible to live so much in such a time span. Highlights Kinda took part in a hackathon Broke up with my boyfriend (and I barely blogged about it which is a miracle) Went to New York Volunteered at Otafest for the first time Graduated university Saw Alexisonfire, Billy Talent, and Coheed and Cambria in concert Went to Edmonton for Animethon I started my first job out of university When I write it out like that, it doesn’t really seem like a lot but I don’t think I’ve ever had such an eventful year!

24 Years Old

December 30, 2018 | Comments

Today I turn 24 years old. I know I’m still pretty young (I’m constantly reminded how young I am at work) but I’m not getting any younger. Only older. The other day I was looking at myself in the mirror. I’m getting laugh lines and forehead wrinkles! I try not to be vain because looks are never forever but it really hit me then that I am old. And it’s just not me who is getting old.
