Comings and Goings


I am so excited right now! My guy is flying into EIA as I write. He has been gone on a long overdue trip home to Morocco and then to Paris, France and Spain. Yesterday A was trying to find a flight into Edmonton from NY so I’m psyched that in 15 minutes, approximately, he will be landing. I know it’s been a long trip for him home and that he’s going to require 3 or 4 days rest but he is in the same city now and I will get to see him soon. A has been gone 2 months! That’s forever in ‘dating’ time. Almost an entire summer went by and I saw him twice. Once before my birthday and once before he left in July.

I am apprehensive about our relationship. Things were not going well before he left, and before that and we barely had time to make things right before he went away. It was good though, to have all that time to think and consider things, to figure out a direction I want to take with him. It was nice not to worry about the relationship when I was having health troubles this summer. But all in all, I’m excited to see A and can’t wait for us to be us again.

I have also extremely enjoyed the Writing 101 course I have been participating in through WordPress. I highly recommend to anyone who blogs. Any kind of education you can get to improve your work or your hobbies is beneficial and it’s exciting. I always found in school I learnt more in classes where the professor and the students participated and gave their opinions. I think that is what I find with the mini writing course. Having the input of so many peers and having the ability to read and learn through all the work of your peers is very helpful to one’s own writing. Not to mention, all the different prompts or topics and challenges we have been given have definitely stretched my comfort zone and improved my ability as a writer. I look forward to each writing challenge and I have found that writing for 20 to 30 minutes a day is not hard, even if you have to go back and make corrections through out the day for certain blog posts.

The Writing course has filled a void left by editing courses I did not sign up for in time from Simon Frazier. I did not realize I needed to sign up 2 to 3 months in advance and that you had to be signed up for all the editing courses you wanted to take all year. So at least I have a beginner’s copywriting course from April to July. I would also especially like to take my final course at the U of A for Residential design even if I miss half the classes due to health issues, in January. At least then I’ll be done that certificate and receive it in June 2015. All I need is a B.

Also excited for Brewfest — a pop up market and Beer thing next Friday and lunch with my 25-year-old baby brother Wednesday. Tomorrow I finally get into the doctors and have a bunch of paperwork I need filled out there and in November, time to Christmas Shop. I get mine done ahead of time and I think this year maybe a gift card year, we’ll have to see.

Talk to you in the future!

Notes to Sleep By


I think I am having one of the most boring weeks of my life? I am well enough again after July to be up and about the house all day but I am finding myself a tad bored of reading which is saying something because I can usually read all day most days now and love it as I always have. English Major right here.

I don’t always feel that I need a nap in the day, daily chores, and preparing myself for the day only takes so long, even if I have chosen to do my hair in some special way since I have time.

I’m in this in-between stage where I’m healthy enough to be around the house but not quite healthy enough to be out and about doing too much, that just seems to exhaust me.

So, I walk a short distance — I still feel odd walking without a dog — and I concentrate as much as I can on some book, writing, and a tad bit of scrapbooking. I am trying to do more around the house but it seems when I get to rearranging things for more then a couple hours the usual fatigue kicks in. Same old problems.

I did happen to get together again with A over summer but he has been on a long vacation since the end of July visiting Paris, France, Morocco, and Barcelona, Spain. We’ve kept up communication well but I miss him a lot by this point, we’ve never been a part more then 3 weeks and although we message often I haven’t heard much lately so that usually means the cell reception is bad wherever he is in Morocco now.

He tells me he is coming home soon and I’m extremely looking forward to seeing him and hearing stories about his travels and all the friends and relatives he has seen. Although, I was happy to have a break to think before he left now I believe as the euphemism goes “absence makes the heart grow fonder.”

I’m also doing this Writing 101 mini – course through WordPress, it’s about writing every day for a month and writing on varied topics, so I’m excited to have a little something to do until my editing course starts in November by distance learning.

I will be taking Proofreading and if that’s full then I will take Copywriting, both beginner courses. I just think Proofreading is the place to start since it’s more of checking for grammar and spelling etc. kind of idea as opposed to Copywriting which could involve changing more significant grammar, wording, and maybe even changing some ideas that don’t quite make sense ( at least suggesting). But I am happy to do whatever course I end up in.

The next two weeks will be busier, I have a wedding a few coffee’ s and some errands, shopping, and a visit to my favourite, The Beauty Lounge. If I am fortunate enough, A will be back and I’m thinking if he returns in the day I could meet him at the airport. I certainly think he’s worth the cab fare. fall will pick up as it always does and I’m excited for when it does.

The Carrie Diaries Episodes 10, 11, 12, 13 and Josie Maran’s Argan Oil


To begin with today I have reviews for the last 4 episodes of The Carrie Diaries. I am looking forward to Season 2 soon. Also, I have been using this amazing Argan Oil as a moisturizer on my face at night. It keeps skin moisturized without being to greasy and even helps with acne. My boyfriend (who is from Morocco) keeps reminding me that it is from Morocco, so if you didn’t already know lol. Without further ado, here are my articles:
