The Dress

Yesterday I went to a second hand wedding dress shop to sell what was once the dress of my dreams. I had been thinking about doing this for a while and was now determined to make some moves. I called the store I bought the dress from to get a copy of the original invoice. […]

Other Lonely People

I went to a nearby beach a couple of days ago with a girl I’d just met to play a game of ultimate frisbee. I hadn’t ever played before so I was nervous to let down a team of people who had been at it for a while. – This isn’t where I’m headed with […]

The ‘Last’ Post

I’m approaching my last day in San Diego before I start making my way back to Canada (more on this later, I’m not headed right home just yet). My last day in San Diego, after all this time here, is a big ‘last’ for me on my own. I’ve been thinking about it a lot, […]

Punches to the Gut

I walk around on a daily basis feeling relatively normal, happy a lot of the time (sometimes truly, sometimes just on the surface), moving forward with life in general. It’s during these times that my inner sadness seems to plan its’ sneak attacks. It was beautiful outside today and the sunshine always puts me in […]

Stay Classy San Diego

After four long days of driving I finally made it to San Diego on April 6th. I chose Southern California as opposed to Northern California to ensure I would be spending time in warm sun, or at the very least, no snow. The dogs and I had booked an Airbnb in Banker’s Hill for the […]
