the adventures of stress girl: feelin' 22

Hey gang! Haven't seen you since last year!

So, um, wow, things were going really well and then I sort of fell apart. But I'm getting back to it! Life's busy. I've got school (4th year is kinda demanding, who knew?) and life at the library, plus a magazine to coordinate. In the past few months, I saw Fun Home with a couple pals, interviewed a teenage rock band & watched them take to the roof for the photoshoot, wrote a couple new songs, and started work on a Twine game.

I'm taking Electronic Literature this semester, and the game is my final project. If you're interested in e-lit, feel free to check out my course blog.

What else...I put up fairy lights in my room! Went thrift store shopping and got a little closer to my ideal style. And my birthday's near the end of the month. 22. Gonna try to keep things real chill this year and have a movie night with my gang.

I'm trying to decide if I need some time off from the internet or if I want to dive in and start blogging more. Is anybody out there reading me? I know I don't do any of the things you're supposed to do online - stick to one kind of content, post regularly, engage with others - but I like my little digital home.

And if you are here, I'm glad.

quote of the moment

"What intrigues me about diaries is how many contradictions there are in it. One day you can feel incredibly clear about the rest of your life and the next you get a phone call and backtrack completely."

- Michael Palin


Reading: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien (for reals this time)

Listening: "La de da de da de da de day oh" by bill wurtz

RECOMMENDING: katiefliesaway [youtube channel] katie is younger than me and loves musical theatre and makes funny sketches and I think she's cool in that really nerdy kind of way, y'know?
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel [TV] Jewish housewife in 1958 New York becomes a stand-up comic, writted & directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino of Gilmore Girls acclaim. I just sped through the entire season and WOW this is a good time. Charming, hilarous, and the music choices are top-notch (especially if you're a theatre fan like me).

news/life stuff

I recommend following me on instagram for updates (I post on my story most days)

  • just got the first proof printed edition of the first issue of the neighbourhood magazine! ahhhhh!
  • Dec. 22nd was my last day at Vancouver and Western Living! I cannot say enough wonderful things about the editorial staff. It seems shallow to say it was just "rewarding" - I learned so much about publishing, made industry contacts, and had opportunities to interview people and attend events. Happy holidays to the team!
  • updating/tidying the site (anything you guys would like to see? I'm thinking of putting up a "free downloads" section for some of my zines, photos, etc.)
