Our baby hasn't arrived yet and won't for a little while, but I am already starting to feel guilty. I feel guilty that if I stay home with our baby once it's born, that I won't be contributing financially as much as I would feel that is "right". But then I would also feel guilty … Continue reading Guilt and soon-to-be motherhood.
Before I got pregnant, I used to find it hard imagining that I would be able to accept what my body would be like when pregnant, let alone like it. It wasn't that I wasn't in awe of how a body can grow a whole, beautiful little baby from scratch, because that is incredibly amazing! … Continue reading My pregnancy body and why I’m learning to love it.
Tomorrow marks the final stretch of my endeavors with university (well, for the time being anyway). It's the second half of my final semester of my undergraduate degree, which I feel has gone on for decades. But really, it's been about four and a half years, only a year and a half long than it … Continue reading On the home stretch.
These little thoughts have been swirling around my brain recently, and letting them roam free will help, maybe. Some are fleeting, and others stay long into the night. They are what they are. I'm finding the subject of weight increasingly boring as the years go by, and as I get better too. Like there are … Continue reading Thoughts of the moment #2.

We are laughing so much and spending time with friends and family and there are so many good things. Kind things. Lucky things. … Continue reading Lately…
Every single second runs and runs and flies and I can't keep up. Every word sounds clunky and bumpy and these sentences don't form how they feel and I just don't know how to say it. My brain soars at one hundred and one miles per hour and this is unfiltered. This is me. I … Continue reading Wired.
It's winter right now and I'm not normally one to say this, but I'm really missing summer. Wearing shorts and eating cold watermelon and downing all the water like there's no tomorrow - it's a stark comparison to our gray days now. Usually I find it tricky to pick one season that I like best, … Continue reading Liquid light and all those crazy feelings.
I'm going to begin with one of my all time, absolute favourite quotes - "I said to the sun, 'Tell me about the big bang.' The sun said, 'it hurts to become.'" (Andrea Gibson). And my oh my, that quote just fills me with so much power and so much strength; strength that it not … Continue reading I said to the sun . . .
It's been a week since I began reading Fight Like A Girl by Clementine Ford, and wow oh wow I am so lucky that this book came my way. "I'm angry that girls all over the world learn to hate themselves. Because we are taught that we are worth hating." (Clementine Ford). I picked it up obliviously, … Continue reading Fight like a girl.
