Distractions

If you are anything like me, then you probably do everything in your power to avoid thinking about the harder issues that fill every aspect of our lives. Sometimes we find distractions randomly, and unexpectedly;Other times we methodically think and plan a distraction. Thinking about the hard questions we need ask ourselves, or the talks we need to have with ourselves, is a lot scarier and harder to do, than distracting ourselves from it. But there will come a time when the distractions will end, or become frequent, and you won’t be as busy. And you won’t find another one … Continue reading Distractions

Music

I find that music is such a personal and specific preference, catered to everyone individually. Whenever someone asks me what my favourite type of music is, I have such a hard time answering, simply because I never actually fell into one specific type of music. If I like a song that I hear, from whichever genre, then I like it. As I said,  music is very personal, I decided to share the 5 songs currently stuck in my head, in hopes that this lets you all get to know me a bit better! Whistle (While You Work It)- Katy Tiz … Continue reading Music

The misconception of summer

Often we have this misconception that summers need to be jam packed with endless nights and constant fun… which it can obviously have. Before summer starts we have this idea of what we want our summer to look like; we book our trips, and make the bucket lists and plan out our road trips. But when summer rolls, often times everything we had hoped for does not happen. Because being busy 24/7 is actually exhausting, and summer is meant to be a break from the chaos we experience the rest of the year. Essentially, what I am getting at is … Continue reading The misconception of summer

Opinions

An opinion. Probably one of the biggest causes of conflicts regardless of where you are, who you are, or your circumstances. Everyone has an opinion, and as I am sure you will all know they are shaped by the environment you grew up in and are currently living in. Now I am also sure that many of you know that the environment in which you grew up in is not the same one as your neighbors or even people in your family. And we all know that this leads us to have very different and diverse opinions that we have … Continue reading Opinions
