I see that there have been more visits to this little blog. That makes me smile! It probably isn’t quite as interesting as my old one, but I am getting back into the swing of things.

I’m facing an anniversary in a few days, and right now I’m not sure how I feel about that day. I’ve come a long way since that day, and I harbour no ill feelings about what happened. But it’s one of those days that will stand out for a little wile.

But all in all, it’s been a good summer. Visits with my parents, camping trips (even if they were both rained out one of the two nights we tried to camp), fun times with friends… but it all went by far too quickly.

So now, with the school year beginning, I’m facing a new challenge. Back to school! Yes, folks, I’m going back to the books. Starting my masters degree and doing it part-time. I’m quite looking forward to it.

Well, I’ll keep this short for now. If you are reading this, feel free to leave a note to say hello, just so I know my words are getting out there and someone I know is really reading this. 😉


I know summer isn’t over yet, but thought I’d share a few photos from the last few weeks.

Today I got to thinking about me – who I am, what experiences have affected me in my life, how others may or may not experience me, whether I appreciated different people, and all sorts of thoughtful thoughts.

I continue to look back at my life to see how different things affected me, which may or may not be a good thing to be doing. But as I get older and reflect on the people I’ve known over the years and how I’ve related to them, I see how things have affected me and created the person I am. Who my friends were. How I saw myself. Thoughts I had. Things I can look back on and see that I misinterpreted. How past job experiences affected me personally and professionally, and have affected how I perceive myself personally and professionally (but moreso professionally).

It’s times like this when I think about different people and wonder if I should reach out to them and tell them how their friendship was appreciated, or how much I enjoyed the time we spent together (sounds like I’m talking about someone I’m dating, but it’s more like a classmates and friendship thing) and probably hadn’t mentioned it to them in the past.

Part of me wonders what others do see when they look at me, or what my actions and behaviours are interpreted as by others. Do they see an insecure, slightly closed-off person, or do they see someone with confidence and a friendly nature? I’ve been told I hide my insecurities well, and that I seem to be a strong, confident woman when I’m meeting new people. But there are little things in my head that really make me wonder just how strange people see me as. Am I as weird to them as I seem to be myself?

This probably sounds really cryptic, and I’m not quite sure what I’m looking for in writing this… maybe I hoped by typing this it would become clearer in my head and make more sense or something.

And so far that hasn’t happened.

A sunny morning. 🙂 Heading to the parade of sail in a little while. I want to make sure i get a good spot for it. 🙂 So I’ll have tons of photos to share later today, methinks.

I read a really amazing article on the Globe and Mail website today. (Well, I thought it was pretty amazing.) It amazes me that so many high profile, seemingly confident, very successful women don’t see themselves as amazing. Which Steve says I need to realize about myself more. I am getting there, but there are lot of things I’m still struggling with. Time will tell.

I’m going to keep this short. Hoping nothing comes up between now and the parade of sail.

In the meantime, off to find my face sunblock. Poor nose is pink from yesterday. Gonna find a nice ball hat too. 🙂

It’s been a busy time, the past month or so. Lots on the go. Visits to Ontario, fun with friends, lots happening summer-wise in the city.

A good summer so far, methinks.

Looking forward to this afternoon. We’re heading to the Tall Shops, so will have my camera out for sure. And looking forward to camping with friends this weekend and doing some sea kayaking.

A brief update, yes. But I am alive, and am still doing stuff.

How are you today?

I’m not quite sure what this will be yet, but after creating this blog a couple weeks ago or so, I figured I was overdue in updating it.

Life continues to be in a state of change. Possibilities appear, some things work out, some don’t. I am a person who doesn’t easily relax and ‘go with the flow.’ Instead, there’s a big part of me that tries to swim against the current, or direct myself where I think I should be going rather than letting the current take me to the safe place downstream. Sometimes I do ok with my swimming, while other times… not so much. Learning to trust that life is going to take me where I need to be, and being patient in waiting to see where and when that’ll be is not easy for me.

But I’m learning. And continue to learn and be reminded.

I am very curious to see where this will take me. I’m in the midst of one thing, and waiting to see if something else will come along.

There are things to look forward to. A trip to Ontario that will be both work-type stuff and getting my family fix. A gathering with friends tomorrow night, watching the Pens hopefully win the Stanley Cup. That kind of thing. 🙂

The possibilities are endless, I think.

I am learning to wait and see.

In the meantime, I’m hanging in there. 🙂 Wanna see some of the lovely scenes around me here? 🙂

Enjoy. 🙂

Welcome to my new little corner of the world.

If you know me from before, glad to see you again. If you’re new, nice to meet you.

I’ll be back soon to start posting.

Back in the day…
