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, […]

The Journey Alone

One of the most difficult parts of this process is that is it not linear, it’s more like an extremely jagged line. It’s not like when you have a cold and you get a little better everyday (at least I don’t feel that way). There are different challenges that arise, often unexpectedly. While I’m still […]

I have some unbelieveable people in my life and their support has brought to light how lucky I ultimately am despite some recent events. A few months ago someone gave me some of the advice I’m […]

Feeling Complexities

I miss you, it’s hard to write about. I feel scattered with all of my feelings and I don’t know if I have the words or ability to convey that. I’ve come across photos of you or of the two of us on my laptop, sometimes I smile for a moment at the memories. If […]

Sounds of Your Soul

The days are ever changing. Some days I feel invincible, excited for the future and like I may be the luckiest person on the planet for this chance. Some days I can’t get out of bed, I feel like a failure, I don’t know what I’m doing with my life and I have nobody to […]
