Comedy postponed

There’s a funny thing that’s been going on – everywhere I turn, something is getting cancelled. My race last weekend Kevin’s Justin Timberlake shift on Friday Our plans to go to the lacrosse game last night (that was voluntary, but still, cancelled) Fortunately for me, I don’t mind. The bright …

Friends From College

The last time I gave a TV recommendation, it was for The Good Place and I stand by it. Having just aired the season finale of season three, the show has maintained if not exceeded its brilliance the whole way through. (In truth, the last show I actually recommended was …

#Minsgame2019: days 11-15

Vacation day one: No real clothes until around 4pm when Kevin had to take out the garbage and I had to go downstairs to pick up a prescription. In my books, that’s a huge win. The only better outcome would have been no real clothes at all. We spent the …

My early 19 for 2019 fail

I made my list. I check it periodically. So far, I’ve ditched one goal and have started to contemplate…do I add another in its place? Probably, but I haven’t decided exactly what it will be yet. In the meantime, I came to the crashing realization today that I am failing …

Let people show you who they are

This is a saying that I love. It’s one of my favourites. I’ve had a few experiences lately that have reminded me that it’s in the moments when people are not necessarily at their best when they show you who they really are. And instead of writing their excuses for …

I quit!

In the past week, I’ve talked to two people who’ve cut themselves off of wifi. One did it at home, one did it on mobile. Both, in my mind, are bold moves. I’ve seriously cut back on my mobile data usage just because I’m using my phone less and less …

#Minsgame2019: days 6-10

I’ve survived another five days of our Minimalism Challenge. I feel like it’s been easier this time around, although maybe I need to adjust my expectations. It’s going to start getting a lot harder and fast. For now, I’ve been able to go back and forth between focusing on a …

Snow and the highlight of my weekend

If you live anywhere in the vicinity of the Pacific Northwest, I’m sure you have heard about the snow one thousand times already. It’s crazy. So crazy, in fact, that I went into Rogers Arena at about 11am today and it was sunny and there didn’t seem to be a …

How you judge a book

Probably my favourite non-Twitter social media right now is Goodreads. In case you’re unfamiliar, it’s a website where you create an account then, when you log in, you can track the books you’ve read, are reading or would like to read in the future. I’ve had an account there for …

Doldrums

It’s been kind of a rough week. I mentioned it yesterday already, but I really am really bummed about the cold weather. Not because it’s cold, I actually love the cold, but because of the things that come along with it and make the running conditions dangerous. My favourite race …
