So it's been a long time since we did a good ol' fashioned update, so let's get her going:
I'm not going to go back too far because y'all don't need to know everything. So let's keep it simple.
Right now I'm in Toronto and it's been giving me mixed emotions all around. Even though I'm only here for the week, it's starting to hit me that my time in Vancouver is counting down real quick. I'm coming back to Toronto in May for the long term ("permanently" feels too finite) and as much as I am excited to be back with the baby sis and my parents, it's still scary. Plus there is something to be said about the loss of freedom in coming back home. I mean, it's not like I'm a raging party animal, but there are definitely some habits I might want to kick before I move back in to my childhood bedroom. Also, the last time I updated my room I was about fifteen, and needless to say it's not 2014 anymore, so she needs a bit of a remodel. I mean, painting my room has to be more productive than doing the standard girl-freak-out and getting bangs, right?
I'm about to get rocket-launched into the second half of this semester. Finals schedules are out at UBC and mine looks like the goddamn Nightmare on Elm Street. I thought UBC would give me a break considering it's my last semester and they've robbed me blind for the last four years, but nah, they decided to go out with a bang. @UBC, when I write my biography, do you want to to put the "fuck you" in all caps or lowercase? I have midterms coming out my yin yang and I'm just nearly keeping my head above the water. I know I said once that university is like having a "shirt pocket", but sometimes it's like getting kicked in the head, karate-kid-style.
Hmmmmmmmmm, what else? You can always assume the obvious:
-Still writing music
-Still playing shows (follow @victoria_staff for the updates)
-Still eat cookie dough for breakfast
All the healthy, normal things a 21-year-old girl should be doing. If you don't stir the pot a bit every once in a while, things get boring don't they?
Other than that, life is pretty static. I have some bigger-ish projects on my mind and coming up over the next little bit. But I'm not entirely ready to spill all the beans quite yet. All I can see is I plan on finishing school at the end of April and I'm not only hitting the ground running, I'm hitting the ground at a fucking sprint.
And I close this segment with a Netflix recommendation: Love is Blind
I never got into the Bachelor/Bachelorette and Love Island is too much content for a binge-watcher like me to healthily be exposed to. Love is Blind is a Netflix series in which people get engaged without ever seeing each other. Then they go on vacation, move in together and get married over the span of like 4 weeks. It is chaotic, it is a recipe for disaster, and it is my new favourite show. If you need something to take your mind off idk, wildfires, floods, viruses, government scandals and (if you're Canadian) protests, this is the medicine to heal that wound.
I know this isn't my usual dive into one topic, but I thought I would give you a small catch-up on what's going on in my life. If you want to see me live, I'll be at Blarney Stone on March 12th and I can't wait to see some new and familiar faces.
From me, with love, to you,
