Operation

Tuesday was a really big day for me, as you might have seen on the countdown if you saw it (now it'll continue saying it's the 28th until I remove it) - I had my first-ever surgery. Not some simple minor surgery, this was full-blown, intense major surgery. It was an all-day event. Not the …

Inception

I'm having another down day. It's rainy and beautiful outside, so you'd think that might cheer me up, but it isn't. I had a weird dream last night that stuck with me after waking up, and despite sleeping 8 or 9 hours I'm tired. Instead of going on about having a down day, I'm going …

Nervous?

Ever since that countdown got into the single-digit numbers, I've been feeling a little rush of nerves whenever I glance at it. The day is fast approaching, and I have no means to prepare myself. I haven't posted anything in a few days for no particular reason. I haven't done a lot of creating this …

Apathy

This post isn't a cheerful one, so if that sounds unpleasant to read then I suggest you click away. I had a couple days that were good, they felt productive; I got some important things done that had been hanging over me for a long time. I even started attempting to meditate. I've been listening …

Enjoying Nature

I started reading a book last night called Notes from the Internet Apocalypse. I'm not very far into it but already it seems ridiculous to me that people would be so lost without the internet. I'm not claiming innocence, that would be even more ridiculous, but I am claiming that my generation (and most people who …

Writer’s Block

The last time I published writing was exactly a month ago. Not counting this post, I have five drafts that I haven't been able to finish. My second blog has several drafts, too, and I've been entirely unsuccessful with my novel-writing. Since writing posts like I normally do (with a clear subject and lots of planning) …

Stir-Crazy

I want to try something different with this post since I'm finding my brain likes doing things in abstract ways (like the doodling). I'm going to try to colour-code ideas with different text colours. I feel like I'm going stir-crazy, waiting for life to happen. I know I've written about this countless times and I doubt …

Acceptance (to college)

I woke up this morning, an hour before my alarm was supposed to go off, and I checked my email. It was like fate or something because one particular email caught my eye, titled "Welcome to St Lawrence College". It was my acceptance letter. It was an awesome moment for me. Apparently, it's still too …

Vanity

Yesterday I cut my hair and today I dyed it, and my behaviour around these events has made me realise something. Whenever I post a selfie or something about myself I tend to joke that I'm being narcissistic, not really taking myself seriously. I'm starting to think I might actually be vain in a weird self-deprecating …

How Do I Sound?

A YouTube video I saw not too long ago inspired me to make videos for my channel a little differently than I have been. I've been separating the talking videos and the speedpaint videos, but this video showed me that I can do both at the same time: write about something on a topic related to …
