I tiredly landed in Brussels after an amazing last meal in Dublin and 2 hours of sleep. I lugged my luggage across the city, which I found to be a bit… Browner, than others I had landed in (the splashes of colour would come). I found my way to G.M., who was working, so I […]Read More Brussels

For my birthday this year, I requested a book on how to jam/pickle/jelly foods so that I could explore a new hobby that would be mostly inspired by my aunt’s amazing grape jelly (family fights almost break out each time she makes a batch). Answering my call for preservation guidance, I received this book: “Preserving […]Read More We Be Jammin’ ("Preserving by the Pint")

Ah, what a nice couple of weeks it has been!My trip to God’s Country was greatly desired and extremely uplifting – but far too short to leave me with anything less than a feeling of having been teased with my favourite fella’s company. However, I filled up on hugs and food and photos and filled […]Read More 10 Days of West-Coast Moseying – Complete (Trip 1)

A new month! How exciting (and occasionally rainy).I have completed another year of university (unless something goes horribly wrong with my final two grades that I’ve yet to receive) – and it was a pretty good one! That includes many aspects of it: my residence experience, my social/romance life, my academic standing, and my sense […]Read More I May do this and I May do that…
The next four months: a time I both welcome and fear.For the most part, I believe that I will enjoy the next four months – the weather will (hopefully) be summery and show signs of life blossoming everywhere, energies will be high, and a reprieve from school will be mine. However, he is going to be […]Read More Looking Forward: The next 4 months.
