Like a firework, he burst into my life

Hello. It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I would say that nothing’s changed since my last post… over a year ago, but that would be quite a lie.

Since last June I… got my Bachelor of Education, moved to a small town on the other side of Canada where I knew no one, started graduate school, lived in a dorm with 3 of the best housemates in the world, finished my first two terms of grad school, had to reject a guy who didn’t even ask me out on the grounds that he was coming on WAY too strong, experienced a massive snowstorm in April, travelled for a month to Singapore/Japan, hosted/attended my first academic conference… oh, and apparently I’m no longer single. How the heck did that all happen?? Given time constraints and the nature of our blog, I’m only elaborating on the weirdest, most unexpected of all those things today… the not being single part. He’s literally the unexpected firework that came from all the darkness, so humour me as I break down this simile.

Warning: the very last section (short-lived) might be PG13 rather than our usual, G-rated content. Continue reading “Like a firework, he burst into my life”


You know you’re in a strange/sad situation when…

…you’re a single, 25 year-old girl and the person who you have a constant conversation with and who wishes you good morning and good night is a 14 year-old boy. No, I’m not a pedophile, there’s explanations and reasons leading up to this situation! Don’t freak out and call the cops! I’m posting this collection of things that have been on my mind lately mostly because it’s a chance to organize and lay them all out. If my first sentence hadn’t thoroughly disgusted you, read on to hear me out! Continue reading “You know you’re in a strange/sad situation when…”

New year, new hopes, still me.

Happy new year everyone! My first day of classes start early tomorrow, so technically I SHOULD be sleeping ASAP… but talking with some other friends about blogging got me both excited and nostalgic at the same time, so I thought I’d pop in here for a bit–I’ll try to keep it short. Continue reading “New year, new hopes, still me.”

I’m back with none of the posts I was thinking of making!

So, we noticed that we’ve been gone for awhile and were talking about making new posts… because new semester, new start, and all that. I figured I’d eventually get on here and give you the whole spheal about where I’ve been, what I’ve done and how I’ve had absolutely nothing remotely related to romance over the past few months…

But instead I’m here, and I just want to say… if I had to describe my emotions right now it would probably be a mix of awkward, confused, unamused, and maybe even a bit jealous because I’m currently in a skype call with my friend, who as of lately seems to insist on group calling me with his best friend for no apparent reason. What is this even? There’s a bit of progression and backstory that led up to this situation, and I’ve talked to his friend before in this sort of situation where the two of them (mostly his friend) was helping me out on an assignment. But now that the assignment’s over, and his friend is over in Athena’s area… ???

Not only that, but we aren’t even talking about anything… my friend asked me to talk because he had questions about something (idk what)… but apparently now he doesn’t remember them, and so silence. I guess it’s not awkward for me, but… I don’t really know his friend all too well so it’s hard for it NOT to be an awkward silence. Anyways, in short, I don’t really know what this is. I’d actually rather he goes back to just skyping with his friend instead of feeling obligated to skype him with me for some reason. Oh well, just one of those moments I had no idea how to handle and thus dealt with it the one way I knew of… posting about it anonymously online where the people involved will never know. Life goes on.




This post has nothing to do with our love lives. Cause we all know that that is going nowhere.

I just wanted to share some images that a very talented friend of ours drew representing us. Which means our profile pics are gonna change very soon. =D

My dream about a romantic-tragedy (?) in The Giver

It’s rare that I dream at night–and even rarer that I remember my dreams after I wake up. But this morning I had this vivid dream about @unforgivingathena and Panda (a guy associated with Athena) in the world of Lois Lowry’s The Giver (a book I’ve been working on with these kids I tutor recently), and thought I would share my dream… with anyone who cares to read about it. *warning* this contains spoilers about the novel, so if you don’t want to know…
