After almost two months of silence and the most hectic Monday of my life, I am writing another blog post! Phew! Maybe you can tell my first thirty days at Trent University have been a rollercoaster ride. With the month in review on my mind, here are some highlights from this new adventure so far!
Life this July feels like the moment after placing the last piece of a puzzle. Countless hours spent finding the missing pieces, building around sides and corners until you get to the final slot and… it’s complete. What next?
Halt! Before continuing on with this post, get yourself comfy. Why? Because this is my first “monthly favourites” blog post and I’m counting on it being a big one.
I’ve posted a few prose pieces on this blog, but it wasn’t that long ago I actually started writing unrestrained pieces like such. This one is directly inspired by a picture from April, 2017 – which is perhaps one of my favourite photos.
The last few weeks of living in South Africa had a very unique aesthetic – an oddly placed haven. And it was in this phase that I found one of my now favourite things.
On Monday the 18th of February, my family and I visited Niagara Falls. I thought I’d make a post commemorating the trip – it really was one of the most impressive things I’ve seen.
For a friend, who I hope will understand how dearly her casual comment moved me.
A haphazard poem of varying rhythms and questionable rhymes. What a perfect metaphor for twenty-eighteen.
On the first of December, Christmas begins.
