Life in LDR

A hot and sunny, beautiful long weekend has just passed me by and I'm sitting here in sweatpants and Babe's sweater, like I have been since he left on Saturday, with the exception of two overnight shifts on an acute psychiatry unit and a quick dinner with my childhood best friends. Working nights has never… Continue reading Life in LDR

Things I Learned from Being Loved

I think it's fair to say that the majority of us have had the experience of being in a bad relationship or being the one who "cares too much", whether while dating a person or simply just being in a position where you like someone and they don't like you back, especially in the casual… Continue reading Things I Learned from Being Loved

5 ways to be a hat person

It took me a long time to get into the hat thing. I felt like I looked funny; I started questioning if my head is abnormally large or maybe abnormally small (still not sure) or why I only noticed the size of my head once I put a hat on.

But no matter how bomb my playlist is, after about 5 minutes into running,… Continue reading The Ugly “C” Word

If you, like me, spent your young adulthood watching Sex and the City religiously, constantly torn on who Carrie should end up with (Team Aiden!.. For now), then you probably spent a great deal of time wishing you had big enough... *hair*, like her, to rock such bold statements. I'm not one for wearing gowns… Continue reading “the Carrie Diaries”

Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 2)

I'm snuggled up on my couch live streaming babe's game on my laptop (the laptop I should be doing homework on...), but so happy to finally be able to catch a game. We both put our jobs first, and I'm often working or in school when he has a game. So today I am beyond… Continue reading Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 2)
