small town life
Saturday, April 10, 2021      4 comments

We have a long-standing tradition in our small town - we post death notices on the post office window/doors. I think some time back there was an attempt to stop this practice when someone said it felt morbid and in cities they don't do this pra... Read more
It's Been Awhile
Tuesday, April 06, 2021      3 comments

I haven't posted for some time because I haven't had energy or time. The last paper was a nasty one, it hurt my teeth - for the college course. The subject was too broad and my brain struggled to figure out what exactly was expected and how to... Read more
Brain Break and Mindful Eating
Monday, March 29, 2021      2 comments

I am taking a brain break from writing a paper exploring Women's Rights in Canada, with focus on rights within my province, the country and internationally. I will resume tomorrow, after work. My brain is fried and my fingers are hurting, so i... Read more
ADHD and Dog Stories
Saturday, March 27, 2021      3 comments

Before I jump into dog stories, have a link to share for those living with someone who has ADHD, interested in ADHD or lives with ADHD - not sure if those outside of Canada can access this resource but it's worth checking it out - if you are int... Read more
Doctor Bias
Friday, March 26, 2021      4 comments

I was furious tonight. I have a plan of action now. I didn't react immediately, took time to think and ask feedback. As I told my mother, my line is in the sand firm. I'm too old to accept bullying and bias as an acceptable way to treat p... Read more
I'm a Star
Thursday, March 25, 2021      2 comments

Well...I've been keeping this under wraps, so I will let you all know, I won a spotlight on my province's autoclub magazine. (BCAA) They ran a contest in Feb on called #savetheday, where everyone put in their stories on how their days were sav... Read more
Snow, College Papers and Spring
Wednesday, March 24, 2021      2 comments

It's spring time in the north - it snowed again today and by the afternoon, it had melted. It felt cool out even though it was above freezing. Tonight it's +7C and feels like its far colder, probably the bitter wind that is blowing through. ... Read more
My head is going to EXPLODE!
Tuesday, March 23, 2021      3 comments

Ask me, ask me anything about Samsonite's social responsibility practices and philanthropic actions. I can tell you. I really can. I just completed a 15 page paper for my Social Work, Social Reform Policy class. My biography will likely be 2... Read more
Northern Spring
Sunday, March 21, 2021      4 comments

Even though I am considered living in the north, in reality I live in the geographical centre of BC. Up north, where I used to live, there is still much snow on the ground although it is starting to warm up there too. In this area, we are havi... Read more
Vacation and Cats
Sunday, March 14, 2021      9 comments

Normally I don't take vacation in March (or April, as my next set is in April) but I knew I'd be hitting walls with all the stuff that went down last year. I'm glad I did this because I definitely hit a wall. All last week I felt like I could ... Read more
see a challenge, rise to the challenge
Wednesday, March 10, 2021      4 comments

I have an assignment due tomorrow for college. I wrote it all out several times this weekend, saved it Sunday night and decided to tackle it on Monday. Monday came and inspiration wasn't there, so I decided to put it off until tonight. ... Read more
Randoms - simply because I can!

I'm excited. My brother and his family gave me an Indigo gift certificate for Christmas, so I will use it to purchase the last book in the Trickster... Read more
good night
Monday, March 08, 2021      2 comments

I fell asleep today at 3PM and woke up at 7PM. I meant to sleep for 20 minutes. I must have turned off the alarm. I was up about 8 times last night to use the bathroom. I guess I drank too much water. I was also in pain most of the night, w... Read more
Midterms and Stuff
Thursday, March 04, 2021      2 comments

The issue with the appointment at the Centre was sorted out and I suspect, the person who takes care of things for me wasn't impressed to return after 2 days off to find my emails. In all fairness there was no email stating she was away - just ... Read more
my update
Wednesday, March 03, 2021      1 comments

I'm feeling frustrated. People are not doing their part and it's affecting me directly. When you say you will do something - do it. If you cannot do it, ensure it's passed on to someone who will make it happen. I'm struggling ... Read more
