Showing posts from August, 2019


Recently the posts here on my blog have been of the heavier nature. I thought that today I would do a lighter post, focused on (in my humble opinion) the best ROMANCE FILMS on da flix. (Or Netflix , I am just trying to be hip). Cute shot of where I watch all my romance movies. In bed. I should probably start by saying that I am absolutely obsessed with romance movies. They are my go to. A form of escapism. I love them and live my life through them, lol. I guess I am just a big softy underneath my *attempt at a* hard exterior. Let's start!  Not all of these are strictly pure mush/trash. Yet, I like them all, so I figure if you have a similar taste to me you'll like them too. Oh, and another thing, these aren't my top romance films of all time. They are just the best romance films on Netflix. Some of my all time favourite lovey dove movies aren't available on there, sadly.  The Fundamentals of Caring "A writer (Paul Rudd) retires after a personal

A blog?! 4 YEARS LATER

August 15th, 2015. I opened up Blogger for the first time and began to write. I titled my post " A blog?! " and introduced myself to the internet. That was 4 years ago. 4 years ago I started my online journey, kicking off with this very blog, which later led to a YouTube channel, and lots of other cool things. I can't believe it has been 4 years. I feel like in a lot of ways, I have done a full circle. In that very first post, I mentioned that my main passion was writing. I think I lost that at some points over the past couple of years, but I can confidently say that once again, writing is my main interest. It brings me so much joy and it is something that I pour everything I have into. It feels so good to be so committed to something once more. "This blog isn't restricted to certain types of posts, I will just be typing and writing about anything that inspires me at that moment in time." Again, reading this back, it all just feels so full circle.

A cherry pie isn't a failure just because you ate it all

Over a year ago now I wrote a blog post named " What makes a successful relationship? ". I wrote it because I was curious. I wrote it in defence to an altercation I had. I wrote it because I was looking for validation. The whole post was one big discussion about the definition of success, in relation to well, relationships. And when I say relationships, I mean all kinds, romantic and not. I spoke about how all relationships don't have to be society's definition of successful, to be successful for you. I did a lot of reading when I was writing that post, and I couldn't find a source that said what I was trying to say. And then last month, I read a book. It was called "When we collided". And it said what I have been trying to say, for this past year. "That's the thing they never tell you about love stories: just because one ends, that doesn't mean it failed. A cherry pie isn't a failure just because you ate it all. It's pe

The mess becomes a map once you know how to use it

“I’m a mess” or "it's a mess" is something I feel like I say and a lot of others say, often .  We toss it around, we call ourselves disastrous and complicated. We are so quick to label situations catastrophic and tricky.  I recently read a quote in the book “Open Road Summer” which totally has inspired this post. “The mess becomes a map once you know how to use it”. It really struck a chord with me. It was used when describing the sky, and the stars that are around our planet, however I feel like it can and does apply to our lives too. The mess that we seemingly have created in the short time we have been on this earth can guide us to make better, well informed choices in the future.  There is a lot of talk at the moment about the butterfly effect, and how every, *seemingly small*, decision we make influences and impacts the next one. If we didn’t make bad decisions (/A MESS) we might not be where we are today and if we didn’t make good decisions we also m
