Long weekend laziness

It’s the long weekend here in Nova Scotia. I’m fortunate enough to be working for an organization that recognizes Natal Day Weekend as a statutory holiday, although I know a lot of people aren’t so fortunate. When I worked at the radio station in Kentville, every other office of the organization got a stat holiday…

Wassup homeslices? (Other than me trying to sound cool.)

Okay, so it’s a bitter, drizzly fall afternoon, I’m hunkered down in my hoodie—there’s no excuse for me not doing a blog entry today. I even slept in until eleven, when my cat decided I may or may not be alive, and needed prodding with his claws. I also think it’s important to let you,…

Practising good sleep hygiene (practising, practising, and more practising)

I’m not a fan of insomnia. In fact, if there was an Unlike (Dislike) button on Facebook, I would seriously dislike (unlike) any statuses relating to sleepless nights. There is nothing like a good night’s sleep. It’s essential to restoring your mental well-being. And to keep from getting stabby. Cats know good sleep hygiene. Take…

Top 5 reasons reading is awesome

Some of you may not agree with the awesomeness of reading. That’s okay. I feel a sense of pity for you, and hope that there’s something in your life which is similarly wonderful. I began reading young because I was read to by my parents and brother and whoever else who was suckered into the…

Getting my book review on

Some time back, I had a page focused entirely on book reviews, the goal being to have a comprehensive list of book reviews which can be shared with others. I wasn’t quite sure how I wanted to present it, so I hid the page until I could make some decisions. The only thing that inspired…

Bye-bye weekend—nice knowing you

So it’s gone already. Yes, the weekend. Not that I should complain, since I’m still only working part-time at best. I am lucky enough to have three straight days of work. Of paid work. Oh, be still my beating heart! It’s 9:34 and I’m trying to wrap up my evening. I wanted to do a…

The organization queen strikes again

Goodbye January! Hello one month closer to spring. And hello longer daylight hours! I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I like to organize. I can’t get enough of it. Realistically, some things get messy over time and I let them be until one day it hits me. I’ve got to fix it. Now. I love…

Tales from my photo editor (me)

I’ve been a busy chicky the last few days. No, not doing paid employment. As if! I only had one day of teaching this week (sad face) and spent the rest of my days amusing myself. Since I’ve upgraded to a different WordPress theme, I’ve realized I can make my photographs BIGGER and BETTER than…

Things I used to like. But detest now.

Now for the list of things I used to like, but detest now.  As we grow older, our tastes change.  Sometimes we like things we didn’t like before.  Sometimes we make a face and think, I used to enjoy that?  What happened to me? Presenting my list of things I no longer like. Ringalos.  I…

Confessions of my summer romance

<< WARNING: English major tripe ahead.>> I am a romantic at heart.  In my brain I’m decidedly cynical, but deep in my heart, I’m a romantic. That’s why I love a good romance, and I’ve been going back in time and reading Jane Austen. Now obviously, I didn’t get through a BAH and MA in…
