So I haven’t been in much of a chatty or social mood. I guess it comes with settling into the world of straight edge-dom. I’m still in that phase where life is boring/annoying/depressing a good portion of the time. But it’ll pass and get a lot better from here. At least I have this creature to bring me oodles of warm, good feelings:
What else?I went to the Chinese Golden Plate something something awards. It was pretty good. No complaints when it comes to a nine course meal. And Chinese is my absolute favourite. However, they gave us swag bags that had these packets of powered tea that I drank today totally out of curiosity. It only took a few sips to make me realize it’s not my thing. Then I got vertigo and vomited and spent the rest of the day on the couch, not feeling well at all.
Other than that, doing a bunch of different types of writing. Lots of hustling. Hard working. Dog walking. Friend hanging. Depression suppressing. And, get this, meditating. I swear it helps.
My birthday approaches. Any ideas for low-key fun times?

I bought this package of candy in Montreal because it made me happy. Translated from French, it means “Little Smile” or “Hint of a Smile” and I vowed to crack it open when I feel super down. I’m curious if anyone out there in the world of interwebbing has an emergency dosage of happy they keep at arm’s length.

Click here to read the latest installment of I’m a Good Story. It’s a bit…er…scattered, but that’s okay because it’s perfectly reflective of how my life has been in the last month.
So. Yeah. I’m back in Vancouver after a really fun east coast tour of Montreal, North Hatley and Toronto. My grant’s done, I’m sorting out the next chapter of my life and things are interesting, which is basically another way of saying I’m suffering from severe anxiety. Who’s got a solution for that? Anyone?
Here are some highlights of my trip…
Had a hearty bro-down with my bud Adam Gollner. We talked all things writing. I totally needed that for my writerly soul.
You know those days when you leave the house and you hope to run into someone you know, but not a crappy ex-boyfriend? That happened in Montreal. I randomly ran into Dan, who was getting drunk alone on Prince Arthur. It was great!
I always make a point of visiting Reema at her amazing cupcake shop. Not to be missed if you’re in Montreal.
When we arrived at the property (which was so big and beautiful) I immediately went upstairs to change into my ceremony dress. These were the first people I saw upon arrival…the sunny and unflappable Jenna and the beautiful bride Laura.
Cut to the next day. No photos of the sweet cabin I stayed in, or the delicious breakfast I forced myself out of bed to go eat way too early. Here, however, is a picture of my dear, old friends Laura and Ronit.
My mum feeds me well. She’s so good at that.
And now I’m home. Figuring things out. Any pointers?
