My Toronto Diary
I have been in Toronto for precisely 53 days and have loved every moment. Almost every moment. I know it's only 4 hours away from Ottawa so this might sound over exaggerated but it has been the most heart melting, jaw-dropping and eye-widening experience ev...

A Great Pair of Shoes & An Extraordinary Journey
I read a quote years and years ago that said " Put on a great pair of shoes and it will take you on amazing journeys to spectacular places. " My collection of shoes has been ready for quite some time, and now, my journey has begun. It has been almost a mont...

Kensington Kensington
One of the biggest differences between Toronto and Ottawa is the different variety of people leading a variety of lifestyles. Ottawa is very cookie cutter. Everyone knows exactly what they have to achieve by ages 25, 30, 35..... a government job, a car, a t...

What's meant to be will always find a way
I have come to realize in the past few days that timing in life is everything. It can bring you the happiest surprises, but it can also be so bittersweet. Sometimes, just when you think you have all your shit together, life throws you the biggest curveball ...

The Bigger You Are The Harder You Fall
When I was in the 9th grade, I was dumped by a guy named...let's call him V  because I was not "athletic enough". He was on the field hockey team, soccer team and probably a bunch of others that I can't remember. I still had the biggest crush on him for yea...

Sharing a Taco!

Magic Kingdom to Fulfill My Princess Dream
Like so many other things, Cinderella's castle was much smaller in real life than I had imagined. Florida was way hotter, Orlando and Miami were both much smaller and much more run down, and the park was way more crowded than anticipated. Nonetheless, I did...

With All The Time I Have
Apart from maybe 22 years ago when I was still living in Beijing, I have not lived in such close proximity to school or work. It used to take me hours commuting to work, but now, minutes. I barely know what to do with myself given all the extra time... I ha...

Catching the Train
I read an article a few months back about a nurse who summarized the top 5 life regrets that she has heard from her dying patients. 1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. 2. I wish I hadn't worked so...

Winter is Coming...
I saw snowflakes today falling from the sky. I wore my winter jacket to brunch. Winter is coming to Ottawa... I'm a little sad. There's always so much snow, slush and salt on the ground. I have ruined countless pairs of shoes trying to get through it all.  ...
