Loving It: My New Duvet

Few things make me more irritable than not being able to sleep. The second I start tossing and turning, I'm immediately angry. If I'm too hot or cold, or my legs are itchy, or I just can't turn off my brain... it just all... UGH. And don't you dare disturb my slumber. Because of my ...

Marvel Marathon Madness

I feel like this is tantamount to blasphemy for a lot of people, but I used to be pretty lukewarm on all things Marvel. Sure, I enjoyed Joss Whedon's Avengers movies, and I loved Jessica Jones, but I couldn't be bothered to watch any of the other movies or TV shows. That is, until I ...

Self Esteem: A Work In Progress

Late last year, I wrote about seeing myself in an unflattering photo and realizing how much work I still need to do on my self esteem. Since then, I've been working hard with my therapist to build myself up a bit. As with everything in life, it's a work in progress. I have my good ...

Dorm Days Nostalgia

Watching the premiere of Grown-ish last week (which is EXCELLENT, and if you haven't seen it yet, DROP EVERYTHING WATCH IT... as soon as you're done reading this post), I got really nostalgic for my first year of University. Living in a dorm was a big change for me. As an only child, I'd never shared ...

Loving It: Google Home

I've always thought that it would be pretty cool to have an assistant to help me with stuff.: "Jacek, please clear my schedule for this afternoon." "Did anyone call while I was out?" "Get me somebody. Anybody. And get me someone while I'm waiting!" Unfortunately I'm not (even close to) enough of a big shot ...

Resolution Help

For years, I didn't make resolutions. I was tired of making them only to ditch them after about a week, so I just decided to forget the whole thing. But this year, I'm determined that my resolutions are going to stick. I think my problem in past years was a lack of tools to support me. ...

2018 Resolutions

Happy New Year! I'm back and feeling refreshed after a lovely week at home with my parents, and ready to tackle a brand new year (well, mostly... I wouldn't say no to another few days of vacation). With that in mind, here are my resolutions for 2018. Read More For the last few years, I've ...

Family Christmas Traditions

As you might have gleaned from my many, many holiday themed posts, Christmas is a big deal in my family. My parents and I spend Christmas Eve watching a Christmas movie and feasting on appetizers. (Maury joins us sometimes; other times, he prefers to sleep under my bed for the whole evening.) Later that night, ...

Inspiration on YouTube

Before last year, my YouTube usage was pretty much limited to occasional cat videos, tutorials for something specific, and old favourites like Potter Puppet Pals and Kittens Inspired By Kittens. Then I got hooked on beauty gurus like Allana Davison and KathleenLights, who in turn introduced me to others. In addition to being entertaining, I ...

My Personal Style

I've gone through just about every style phase that you can imagine. In high school, I spent an ill-advised year trying to combine California surfer girl with emo-punk... even though I was decidedly neither Californian nor punk, and those two looks don't really "go" together. Late in University, I was suddenly really into all things ...
