    all the things i said i said i would do before the sun came out and wanted me to enjoy it

    Today, I am reminded of a poem I wrote in Australia. It was 7am, I was walking with my feet in the ocean on Bondi Beach. It was my favorite time of day. Peace, bliss, energy, sunlight ; it was freedom. This untitled poem is my most favorite one I’ve…

    spring has sprung out!

    I went for three walks today. Yes, three. Hello spring, beach body and bike riding! Walk 1. Brekky with some friends at the Old York Bar & Grill. I was in good company and we laughed our heads off at continuous random hilarity. Walk 2. Went for a beautiful stroll…

    steamrolled by drunkards at steam whistle

    Last night I strolled over to Steam Whistle to meet some friends. I arrived late, extremely late considering they opened at 5pm to start the party and most people were already totally wasted. It was a good time! I always have fun out, unless I lose something like my phone,…

    i was at naughty by nature last night and today is friday the thirteenth again

    Last night I went to a fashion show for Brazen Hussy and Naughty by Nature at Circa. I did a major fail and left my camera battery plugged in and brought camera, sans battery. I must say, I do not like to be referred to as ‘brazen’ or ‘hussy’. There…
