high tea: take two

high tea take two

Life’s been pretty weird lately, in the way that it usually is – a mix of highs and lows, good and bad, dry and rainy (no! bad rain!). Now that I am apparently a legitimate grown-up with a nine-to-five job, I’ve turned into a weekend warrior, where everything I do on the weekend is to the extreme. I either aggressively nap and laze around all day, or spend a full twelve hours going on cute adventures with my friends when we were originally only supposed to meet for some tea. The latter happened a couple of weeks ago. I met up with Cindy, Cat, and Avery for high tea at La Petite Cuillรจre, a tea house on main street. We were served by probably the nicest woman in the world, like, she was sweeter than all the sugar cubes we took with our tea. It was amazing.

and we go ever on

Time is kind of funny, when it slips by you in such a way that you can only observe it passing and feel almost unaffected by it. I think that’s what happened to me these past few months, even during my last post; I try to look back and it’s like it’s only been a moment since Christmas, or even Thanksgiving. A lot of memorable and life-changing things happened recently: I got a job in my field, which I was extremely surprised and thrilled by. I graduated (crossed the stage and everything!). And my grandpa passed away.

GTFO 2015: How To Downsize Your Possessions

Looks like I’m starting to get back on track with this whole blogging/vlogging thing. I mean, let’s not all hold our breaths, okay – I’m starting to get back into it. But it’s exciting! And fun! And gives me something to concentrate on that also aligns with current life goals! Win/win/win situation.

Anyhow, I’d like to welcome you all to a new series called Get The F*** Out (GTFO) 2015, which will chronicle my transition to living on my own (with a roommate) and include tips, lessons learned, and triumphs along the way.

(dark) red lip classic

So, just like everybody and their great-grandma, I’ve been listening to Taylor Swift’s 1989 on hardcore repeat since the day it came out, and I am loving it. What was I before “Bad Blood” or “Style”? Dark and without life, I imagine. On another note, Life (yes, with a capital L – we’re getting serious here) has been hella confusing, in the way that 90% of it isn’t but the remaining 10% is VERY CONFUSING TO A CONCERNING DEGREE. Halp.

at the dying of the light

at the dying of the light

Okay, so the title is a little dramatic, but it was pretty much sunset and it’s also the last day of summer. It was a scorcher! Well, not really, but it was hot as heck. Worked on some practicum work for my lovely clients, then met up with Cat Lum to film and photograph some stuff for our upcoming endeavours! More to come on that in the future. Here’s what I wore today:
