Tonight I sit in my new (to me) reading chair, alone on Christmas Eve. My last post was a month ago, and what a month it’s been!
In my last post, I mentioned that there were two people in the world whose loss I didn’t think I could handle. Now one of them has COVID.
It is approximately the eleventh anniversary of the day I began writing my big bad book. It currently stands at 103,741 words. I might have finished it by now, but I haven’t written anything since Foxy died.
This video gave me grief in editing, and as a result I was set back months for my vlogging schedule. Hopefully I figured it out and we won’t have that problem anymore.
When we first got Foxy, we didn’t have furniture yet. My dad was in the process of moving out and my mom didn’t want a dog at her house, so I slept in my dad’s empty house with her.
My part-time job is a bit of a drive, but I’ve never minded because nothing beats coming off a long shift and breathing in the clean air on the way to my car. Each breath feels like I’m getting triple the oxygen that I get in the city, and it feels so good.
I wanted to call this “A Summary of Every Film-Related Thing Happening in My Life in the Last Six Months” because that’s a more descriptive and enticing title, but it’s a bit long. Similar to the quite-long title of a movie I’m in called “Events Transpiring Before, During, And After A High School Basketball Game” which is coming out soon. Here’s the trailer:
Mother’s Day was one of the first times we left our house together in the pandemic since COVID-19 hit our city in March. Of course, I filmed it.
I met him at a cat café. I’d only been to it a couple of times, usually not as long as I’d like. This time, however, I had the time.
For those of you who are unaware, today is Canada Day. Some of my best memories have been on this date, including camping with family, my first time going up the Calgary Tower as a kid, getting to choose a new book at the bookstore, seeing fireworks with my first boyfriend, exploring celebrations downtown with my siblings, and on and on. It’s a day that brings Canadians out to celebrate together, and makes me feel proud of the beautiful country I am fortunate to call home and connected with the rest of my fellow Canadians.
