Month In Review: April 2017

This post is written in advance, because as you’ll probably glance down to see, I move today! Lots of lugging boxes and a 5+ hour drive. I honestly enjoy packing and moving—it’s the unpacking that I hate. I like putting things away, but having to unpack furniture and arrange it… Not a fan. Anyway, April is done, unbelievably, and I’m looking forward to summer. I feel a lot of opportunity, even if I’m still being dragged down by negative thinking and whatnot.

A celebration: I am officially out of Windsor and done with university. I have my degree! (Well, almost. It will arrive in the mail, hopefully.)

A change: I moved back to my hometown today!

A conflict: My eating disorder was a nightmare this month.

A relief: I’m more at peace with myself being divided between art and writing.

A regret: I didn’t revise as much as I wanted to.

A random memory: I saw a husky puppy walking down the street one morning (with the owner, of course), and the puppy stopped by a signpost. The owner tugged at the leash, and the husky pranced up to him with a big stick in its mouth. Like, a huge stick. Which reminds me of another memory… A guy shouted outside and I looked out the window to see him carrying a branch that was literally twice his height. Big sticks make us happy, I suppose.

Onward to May! I’m hoping to visit my oldest brother, especially since his birthday is in the end of the month. I really want to see some mountains, so visiting him in Alberta would be fun—and I’d get to see my grandpa for the first time in probably a decade. There’s so much I can do with my time nowadays that I need to really hone my focus and work on my projects. Or, I can fall into the existential crisis that’s been lurking around since the beginning of the month. I’m hoping to try new things and test my dedication this upcoming month: jogging; finishing art projects; finishing writing projects; working on my relationships with friends, family, my boyfriend, and myself. It’ll be an adventure. Wish me luck!

  1. I’m looking forward to how May will be for you! 😄 Congratulations, many congratulations, on your degree. 👏 And best of luck with moving back. I am sure your hometown will welcome you with open arms and have new things for you to discover since you left. Lovely to read that you will have quite a bit of family time this upcoming month too.

    1. Thanks so much, Georgie! I’ve been home for a few days now, and I’ve already bonded a lot with my dad. It’s been raining nonstop since I got here, so I haven’t gone exploring yet, haha.
