The seven year itch

This week marked seven years in Toronto. And seven years of this blog! Which is obviously still a huge priority for me (not! So sorry blog…). To celebrate this anniversary, I thought I’d share some of the biggest highlights of the last seven years. At least the ones I remember. So here it goes: Continue Reading →

It’s 2017 y’all

Did you forget about Lo in T.O.? I apparently did seeing as my last post is from 2015. January 2015. Yowzers… It’s like 2015 and 2016 didn’t exist. But they did and lots of things happened. Obviously. Like… I changed jobs… twice. Once in 2015 and then again in 2016. The first one wasn’t the best fit and the second one was a dream. I moved in with my guy in 2016. And I traveled to Chicago, Florida, Mexico, Florida again, Mont Tremblant and New York City. I also bought a bike and made the leap from PC to Mac. That pretty much sums up the past two years.

I’m back!

Hello old friends. How are you doing this chilly December day? I am doing well, but I’m also, of course, very sorry for the long absence on this blog. Six months is far too long to go without my wit. I’m surprised any of you have survived. I’m also sorry for probably not posting again until the new year. Please don’t abandon me.  Continue Reading →

Bugs in the dungeon

I hate bugs. I’ve always hated bugs. I was a super girly girl growing up and I did not want to hold frogs or look for snakes or catch bugs in jars. I’m still that girl. In high school, I paid my sisters in clothing to get rid of spiders for me. I don’t think they like bugs either, but they’ve always liked my clothes, so they were generally up for removing whatever was offending me (bug-wise). I went a long time without having to get rid of a bug of my own. Until of course, I moved into my own place. Continue Reading →

Thirty something

My birthday is coming up in a few days and I will be 31 years old. Remember how freaked out I was last year about leaving my 20s? Well a year later I have a lot less feelings about the bump in age. Thirty-one is really no different than 30 or probably even 32. I’m pretty sure I look the same and I doubt I’m any wiser than I was last year. But 31 looks to be a great year. And not only because I’m entering into it debt-free. Continue Reading →

Things I love right now

Now that this ridiculous winter appears to finally be going away (pretty please go away), I’m starting to come out of hibernation. I have basically spent all non-work time in my semi-warm, basement apartment with my cat. I’m not complaining; we’ve had some great times together my cat and I, and I have kept pretty busy down there. But I’m very much looking forward to stepping outside and socializing again now that it is getting warmer. Continue Reading →

Cursed

I have long believed that I am cursed or that I have the ability to jinx good things in my life. I know, I know, I have a good life, so I’m not saying that this curse has forced me to live in poverty or be riddled with health problems, but I do have an uncanny ability to fuck up good things.  Yes, I’m once again talking about dating because what else is there to talk about.

48 dresses

I recently bought two baskets at Winners to replace two at home that have been breaking down for some time. Apparently second-hand wicker only lasts for so long. One of the baskets I replaced was for laundry and the other for miscellaneous items (like my almost-deflated soccer ball and a bunch of slippers and hats). Bringing the baskets home prompted a need, or rather a desire, to reorganize some things around the apartment. Things like my three closets. And for fun, I counted the number of dresses I have. They have their own closet so it seemed like I had a lot and I wondered if my guess of 25 dresses was correct. It wasn’t; it turns out I have 48 dresses.  Continue Reading →

The second year of Lo

Happy new year! We’re two days in and so far I have been very lazy and unproductive. I’m not really worried that this is a sign of the year ahead because my number one goal is to be healthier. Which means getting off my lazy ass more and working out or cooking or hopefully doing both – working out while cooking ;). I feel pretty confident that this and the other items on my list will be accomplished and I warn you now that I will be really smug and obnoxious when the year is over. Continue Reading →
