it's me., aw shucks
spring 2015 was good! I did a bit of travel, I made lots of yummy food and went on a couple adventures with friends (and mainly looked forward to the weather improving after a really long and horrid winter)

I made some home-made ravioli

I went to a maple syrup festival on a farm in ontario with my pal jonathan

jonathan and I went on another adventure to the scarborough bluffs

my work went axe-throwing (it was actually super fun and I can't wait to go again!)

I decided I needed some me-time away from everything so I booked a last-minute trip to cuba (it ended up being a weird trip; I got really sick, the weather was horrible, some funny stuff happened but it was still nice to get away and leave technology behind)

I admired the view from my new apartment

my paternal grandmother (a keen reader of my blog and life updates) passed away. my dad, sister and I spent a few days in BC for the service and to spend time with family. it was a sad reason to visit but the trip was really lovely; it was great hanging out with family that I otherwise really rarely get to see

I went to see the musical "once" with my friend bianca (it was great! I watched the film it was based on later and completely fell in love with it)


I had an impromptu father's day picnic with my pops!

I celebrated pride in toronto with my friend patrick (we went to homo night in canada - a comedy night that was actually funny)

I went to the queen's plate with my mum and aunties shelly and dana

2015 is off to a great start!

In January I moved into my own apartment in Toronto and am still working on getting it feeling homey and lived-in, but it's coming along! I went to the ripley's aquarium with my mum, sister and grandma and mainly hibernated as it was a really cold winter.

In February I did more of the same, just worked and did indoor activities, except for the ice sculpture festival! I also went to see robin hood on stage, which was AMAZING

In March I got to do a day of work at the airport seeing a bunch of our groups off. I also went to Paris for work and had a great time running and cycling around the city checking in with our groups on the road.

as 2015 begins to unfold it's time for my annual look back at the year that was. if you can believe it, this is my 10th year doing these! 10 years!!! 2014 was a great year filled with travel (I've been on a whopping 19 flights this year!), friends and fun.

boot up the time machine and set it for 2014Collapse )

it's me., aw shucks
this autumn me, my mum and my sister all headed for a family holiday in one of the most unlikely places (..unlikely if you know my mum, and this was her idea!) the three of us packed our bags and headed north to iceland for a long weekend over thanksgiving. we had a great time - iceland is an amazing country that's unlike any other - we explored, spent time as a family and experienced something different! from there my mum and sister headed home and I headed to the UK for a solo adventure.
