toronto studio home tour

I get a lot of questions about my apartment. Mainly, how is it I manage to live comfortably in 239 square feet? Where a lot of people imagine me living life like Harry Potter, I'm actually really pleased with my tiny studio apartment. To show just how lovely it can be, I have finally photographed it in all it's glory - every square foot (almost, no one wants to see a toilet right?). 

international friendships

Looking back, I'm surprised it took me as long as it did to truly, deeply miss my friends. But I couldn't avoid that sadness forever, and at some point mid-February I began to realize how weird it is to know there are so many amazing people not in Toronto with me. 

creative, messy mindfulness

Staying in this past weekend was bliss, but I was intentional with the time I gifted myself. The cold snap Toronto faced provided me space to be mindful, and to express my creativity while doing so. Over the space of 54 hours, I painted, texturized, glued and drew two pieces of mixed media art I'm actually really proud of. 

why i went to work yesterday

This year on International Women's Day, women around the world took the day off work as a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity. Their goal is to highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the US and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women and gender nonconforming people continue to face.  As many who know me would rightly assume, this is a cause I stand behind with pride.

I am a closeted Disney fan. I don't scream it from the rooftops, but my whole soul sings when I find myself wrapped up in a Disney classic. I wrote a very critical essay on 'The Disney Vault' in second year university mostly as an excuse to read a whole pile of Disney research. I sang 'Part Of Your World' in my sixth grade talent show - AND STILL HAVE THE WHOLE SONG MEMORIZED.
