Inspiration: Amanda Gorman

 I usually don't talk about politics too much here on my blog (I reserve that for my Twitter account...LOLZ), but January 20th was such a special day in US history that even though I'm Canadian, I was deeply moved by the Inauguration Day ceremony. The Inauguration poet laureate Amanda Gorman and her poem The Hill We Climb was so powerful and inspiration that I thought I'd share it here. When day comes we ask ourselves, where can we find light in this never-ending shade? The loss we carry, a sea we must wade We've braved the belly of the beast We've learned that quiet isn't always peace And the norms and notions of what just is Isn't always just-ice And yet the dawn is ours before we knew it Somehow we do it Somehow we've weathered and witnessed a nation that isn't broken but simply unfinished We the successors of a country and a time Where a skinny Black girl descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president only to

Quarantine Life #5

 So...since we are back in lockdown and stay-at-home order until Feb 10, I thought I'd share some of the stuff keeping me busy:) 1) Going out for walks 2) Knitting a blanket for one of my sisters 3) If you guys follow me on Twitter, you know I am currently in the middle of folding 1000 paper cranes (called senbazuru) Here is a video of me folding one:) 4) Art journalling Here is a flip through of my very first complete art journal:) 5) Watching TV shows and movies, and here are my faves:) Soul (Disney +) Probably one of my all-time fave Pixar movies. This is such an amazing movie, you guys! Highly recommend:) WandaVision Since I didn't really read any spoilers, I was quite confused watching the first two episodes, but man....Elizabeth Olsen was awesome. Bridgerton A cross between Pride and Prejudice and 50 Shades:) A fluffy and oh-so-juicy watch:D What have you guys been up to lately? Do tell!


 Going out for a walk around the neighbourhood (or doing some essentials shopping) is the only reason I get out of house clothes now, so I try to go out and do it daily:) UNIQLO coat, sweater from F21, jeans from Urban Outfitters, Timberland boots My "photographer" while scootering:D How are you guys doing wherever you are? Is it back to normal? Are you still in lockdown?

Currently Loving #53

 Hi guys! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. Here's hoping that 2021 will be waaaaaay different than 2020, and in a good way...not the "worser" kinda way.:P Anyhoo, I thought I'd share some stuff I've been loving currently:) 1) Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll I know I'm about 200 years behind this, but I just started bullet journaling in December, and I am now OBSESSED! What a great way to get organized!  The wonderful thing about reading the book is that not only does it delve into the actual method, but actually goes deeper into how to we can go about really having meaningful moments in our lives by focusing on what is important. Bullet Journal Method book with my 2021 journal Here are some pages from my December journal.:) I like to doodle sometimes when journalling. 2) The Mandalorian Season 2 I like watching shows after all the episodes have aired so I can binge-watch it, and this is one of those shows. Man....I cried on the season fina
