Yesterday morning as I drove into work (which I rarely do but GOtransit service on my line was suspended because of a fire investigation – boo!), I looked over at Lake Ontario and saw the most peaceful and calm sunrise. The way the light was hitting the water gave the sky this peachy-pink, warm glow that put me at ease. It was a great way to start my day, especially since it was my first day on weight watchers. It set the tone for me, and I did awesome with my points and I had a pretty productive day at work to boot.

“What an amazing photo that would make” I thought. I even considered pulling over and snapping a shot…with my phone…

I currently am borrowing – heheh – my boyfriend’s DSLR camera, but I never carry it around. I rarely go a week without spotting some strange things around the city that I would love to blog about, but find it challenging to blog about something if I can’t include a picture. After all they do say that a picture speaks a thousand words.

The DSLR takes fabulous pictures, but a) I don’t know how to use it and take advantage of its features and b) it is just a bit too big for me to be taking around the city.

I’d love to invest in a smaller, good quality camera for these random photo-ops that present themselves to me. Is it too late to ask Santa, haha? Boxing day would have been the day to snatch up a good deal but, who knows?! I’m definitely browsing around for something reasonably priced, so if you know a good deal or about cameras…leave a comment below!

When a minute feels like an hour

It’s just one of those days.


Actually, its been like this all week. It is quiet at work and the perfect opportunity to catch up on tasks and prepare for everyone’s (everyone important, that is) return next week. It is going to be a crazy week next week, with all the directors, managers, and stakeholders returning to work from the holidays. It has definitely been nice to sit at my desk, with only few, minor, and welcomed distractions, to just get things done.


Today, though, every minute feels like an hour. Can it be nap-time? No? What about home-time? I caught myself drooling over lunch earlier, then I glanced down at the time and it was only 10am-ish. I’m hungry.


Why am I hungry? I had breakfast at about 9am, stuck in traffic and terribly late for work.


Bored? Tired? Emotional? Stressed?

Generally, these are the reasons why I mindlessly binge on food.


Pass me my KleanKanteen. I’ll hydrate first.


I think part of the problem is that I’m so overwhelmed with work that it’s hard to actually do work. Weird, right? So much to do but don’t know what to do?


Obviously the answer is to “do” blog, why wouldn’t it be? 😉

Hello, 2012!

I can’t believe that 2012 is here! Happy New Year!!!


2011 was quite the year. I had a good year, if you exclude the stressful health stuff I had to deal with. In 2011 I turned 23, shared my 2 year anniversary with my boyfriend, transitioned from student into a working professional, got published, planned and enjoyed my sister’s wedding. It was fun.


I’d like to post about some of my health issues soon, but I just don’t want to get overwhelmed thinking about it. These issues are a very real part of my life and to leave them out would just not be right. When I’m ready, I’ll blog about it.


I’m really excited for 2012; I have a feeling that its going to be a great year. For the first time since I was much younger, I’ve made a list of things that I’d like to accomplish this year. I blogged about it here.


It is quite late in the GTA right now. I spent the day with my boyfriend, having a private New Years celebration. It was quite nice. Tomorrow we’re both back to work. I applied to some job postings during the holidays and, as people get back into the swing of daily work, I hope to hear back from some of these positions. Wish me luck!
