“i don’t say no because i’m so busy. i say no because i don’t want to be so busy.” —courtney carver (calgary, canada — february 2019)

Hey y’all, look! it’s the rare photo of my face that pops up around here once a year or so. 😉👋🏼 so - quick update... for anyone who is in my life, you’re all aware (and sick of hearing) that i just finished working 30-something days in a row and these are my first days off in a very long time. for anyone who knows me only through the virtual world: i’ve been working 2 jobs since the beginning of january - 3 days a week at one, 4 days a week at the other - so i haven’t had any time off in awhile. i’m finally getting a short break this week, before going back to another 14 days straight of work. after that, i’m down to just one job, 5 days a week, and hopefully my life resumes it’s normal crazy pace instead of this hyperspeed. i apologize for being so absent (although really, who cares?), and i’m hoping to have more adventures going into march and the spring to post about. speaking of posting, i uploading a new guest article on the blog this morning, and i should have another post written by yours truly within the next two days before i go back to work! keep an eye out... 👀 and say hi below in the comments, i miss you guys!

“i like being alone. i have control over my own space. therefore, in order to win me over, your presence has to be better than my solitude. you’re not competing with another person, you are competing with my comfort zone.” —horacio jones (calgary, alberta — january 2019)

Everything seems to feel like a tragedy to me lately. didn’t add a tip for my skip the dishes driver? tragic. my sister telling me she’s planning to move out this summer too, and imagining my parents all alone in their house? tragic. not having the time or energy to walk the dog every day? tragic. being impatient and speeding up instead of letting a car into my lane? tragic. having to buy my lunch at work because i couldn’t put in the effort to pack one? you guessed it - tragic. and so it goes.

Take two: may your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. i hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art - write or draw or or build or sing or live as only you can. and i hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself. — neil gaiman (calgary, alberta — january 2019)

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing your world. you’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something. —neil gaiman (saskatoon, saskatchewan — october 2017)
