I broke a record last month: The fewest blog posts posted in a single month since I started. It was two. Pitiful. Anyway, I've had an influx of new followers, and assuming most of you aren't bots, I think I'll do a little introduction. Hello! My name is Ivy. Here is what I look like: … Continue reading Re-Introducing Myself
On Top of That
Despite the fact that I've only written a single post since the beginning of this month, people have kept subscribing to my blog. I appreciate the vote of confidence, and I suppose I should start writing again to make your loyalty worthwhile. In case you haven't guessed from the prolonged and unforgivable absence (I have a … Continue reading On Top of That
An Old Diary
I recently read an old diary of mine from when I was fourteen-ish. I had tried to make it fun in the beginning in the way I'd thought diaries were supposed to be, like YA contemporary novels and 90s teen flicks. But I gave up about halfway through. I started writing the stuff I really … Continue reading An Old Diary
What Happens When You Leave School
I've left two schools in the past six months. One was a typical, happy, graduation kind of leave. The other was a non-typical, special-circumstances kind of leave. There are some things that only happen with the first kind and some things that only happen with the second, and there are a few that happen with both. … Continue reading What Happens When You Leave School

I was finding myself increasingly unhappy in school to the point where it was affecting my grades and I was late every morning because I hated coming in. I was hyper-aware that when I graduated I would be soaked and dripping in … Continue reading I Quit School.
I like to complete things. Whether the first draft of a book or my entire university degree, I enjoy the sense of accomplishment that comes with finishing something I worked hard on. I don't always complete things. In ninth grade, I handed in my provincial achievement test for science incomplete even though I had time … Continue reading Incomplete
I’m a Model
Today on the way home from work, I was reading Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice when I caught a glimpse of an extraordinary piece of artwork. The guy sitting across from me was drawing the guy sleeping next to me in his sketchbook with a pen and it looked amazing. I will admit I stared. … Continue reading I’m a Model
Today I had to break out the coat which in Winchester was my winter coat but here in Calgary is just an early autumn coat. School is starting for everyone again and in the morning I pass three other post-secondary institutions on the train before I get to mine. The summer as we know it … Continue reading Autumn
My Summer in Pictures
Okay, so I know this is a lazy post, but at least it's a post. Right? If you click on a pic you can go through a slideshow of them.
Oops. Ten days since my last post. My apologies. I kept meaning to post, but I've been busy. Many things have changed. My chair has arrived and as promised, I'll show you both that and my bookshelf...tomorrow. Today, I'll only update you on what's been going on. The biggest thing to happen in the past … Continue reading I’m back!
