I really wish I could say things always go according to plan for me, and that there are alternative ways to learn certain things, but sadly there are not. There is a form of resilience that only comes from being pressured and having the air sucked from your lungs.
Today, I didn't finish everything I set out to do Today, I did things I didn't set out to do Today, I am not whining about the things I am yet to do Today, I am grateful for the things I got to do.
Paddle your canoe is a slang I learned in boarding school, it means to mind your business. In my head, the concept of minding your business by paddling your own canoe always creates a vivid image of a person frantically trying to paddle another person's canoe while sitting in theirs. Although, I do not know the history... Continue Reading →

Early this evening, I started having a headache; a headache I had no business having. Up until this morning I was very confident and happy, everything was going well.
