Right now there are just too many things happening in my life - most of them incredibly awesome - but they take up my time. And I just don't have the time to devote to blogging. I've lost inspiration, desire and the time needed to think up posts, photograph outfits, and the like.
I may be back. Who knows. This could be a temporary thing. The fact is I've found love in blogging, and may find it again some day. Just for now, life is getting in the way. And I'm not complaining.
You can still catch me on Twitter and Instagram though, I can't give those up ;) Plus I'll still be creeping your blogs; I'll never get tired of reading them.. So you'll see me around. I'm not gone for good.
Until next time.
It's one of my favourite quotes. It's a constant reminder that at any moment, things can change. Your life can be different. What you know can become what you knew as you take a step away from a life you set.
I try to remember to...
Never take anything for granted.
Always appreciate the people you love.
And never be scared to walk a new path.
Life will always present a new path. Often when you least expect it.
This quote has inspired thoughts of a second tattoo for a while now. A triangle (delta), representing change. Just a little one, on my ankle. Maybe this summer.
I don't own much red, but when I saw this shirt I basically jumped on it. No idea why, but this awesome print caught my eye and I couldn't look away. Since then, I've been eyeing red just a little more. I've never been drawn to the colour but perhaps something is changing?
I feel spring in the air, too, which is pretty freaking awesome*. Can I get a hallelujah?
*and by feeling spring I mean the sun has come out to play a bit. No, it's not really any warmer...

I'm thinking of taking the next big step of adult life and buying a car.
It's a big step, ladies. But it's becoming a necessary one. Mostly because I can't stand hanging out outside in -40 waiting for the bus. That shit ain't cool.
So here I am, totally lost and confused, trying to figure out if I should buy a car. There are so many things to consider. Do I want new or used? What model? What brand? What year? What colour? Mostly I've decided I want something cute and small, but from there I'm just about useless.
I'm going to Google it. Isn't that what you do when you make big decisions?
Last time I wrote one of these posts was when I was pretty new to being roommate-less.
But now that it's been 8 months, I feel much more educated. I have a slightly refined perspective. More reasons why being roommate-less is awesome.
1. You can sing along to any song you want. You can quote any movie you're watching. And you don't piss anyone off. Yes, I love doing both those things. No, no one likes hearing other people do either of those things. You definitely don't want to be around when I'm watching Harry Potter or listening to Lorde.
2. Curry. I can cook with curry. No one is like "eww it stinks". Although, if they said it like that seriously, I might question their taste in everything. Point being, no one gets mad at me for loving Indian and Thai food. Awesome-possum.
3. The entire shower is mine. Every ledge. Every inch. My shampoo. My conditioner. MY body wash. No cramped space. My face wash doesn't fall off it's spot. There's room for everything in there.
4. My couch has become a coat-rack. Or a "drop your clothes off here when you're lazy". It's a good thing I don't often have visitors, or they'd have nowhere to sit.
5. When I'm not putting them on the couch, I can do weird things like hang my clothes on the fridge handle, or from the hanging light, or even from the front door. And it doesn't get in anyone's way but mine. And no one judges me for having an over-flowing closest.
What would you do if you didn't have a roommate?
My cousins and I drove to Syracuse a couple weekends ago. On the way down we took some roadtrip selfies, stopped at a Dunkin' Donuts (it's got nothing on Tim Hortons, no offence Dunkin'.), and enjoyed some American drinks. We used to have Mello Yellow, but haven't since I was a kid. It's funny how little things can be so different 2 hours away from me. Then we shopped for the day and ate dinner at Dino BBQ. I got the plate with the "smaller portions" and I still didn't finish it. So much meat oh my godddd. Pulled pork, brisket, ribs - where do you even start? The pulled pork was my favourite, but those mashed potatoes were heavenly and the mac'n'cheese was pretty darn good too.
As for shopping goes, we all bought a bunch of stuff. I suck and didn't get many pictures, but I'm sure you'll see some of the stuff coming up in outfit photos over the next little while. I bought a couple pairs of real suede Nine West flats, a new pair of Nike runners, some workout gear, a Columbia fleece pull-over, and my babies, these RayBan aviator sunnies.
Until next time, Syracuse.
A couple months back I signed up for Netflix.
Best and worst decision ever.
Basically I spend my free time binging on movies, documentaries and awesome TV shows. I started watching Suits a couple weeks back, and just finished all the episodes that Netflix had uploaded. The most annoying part? They didn't even upload the entire second season. Just the first 10 episodes. Now what do I do?
I love Netflix, I really do. But c'mon! Why keep that from me?!
Mostly I just wanna watch guys in suits, not gunna lie...
I moved out.
I got a sweet promotion at work.
I took some road trips and saw old friends.
I got my tattoo.
I saw Jimmy Eat World in concert. (super win!)
How did I feel about this year?
It was fine. But I still feel like something was missing.
Even though I truly did a lot.
Today I sit back and realize I'm grateful for everything I have.
For all the opportunities I've been given.
Because really, this year has been great. And I should see it that way.
Cheers to 2014. I hope next year brings you joy and peace.
