Week the fourth

Well this week was by far the hardest, but also the best week I've had. Not just because I was finally going home to see my wee Buttons but because I ran outside for the first time in a LONG time. Sunday, yes I changed the day because as you may know I had to …

Feminism growth

If you have read my earlier posts you would know that I didn't claim to know about feminism as a whole and I was someone that learned about feminism through what they call "Internet Feminism" which included loving Taylor Swift and the like (not gonna lie I do still jam out to her music, she …

Week the Third

To start this post off by saying I don't extremely dislike my life yet in terms of running is saying a lot. All of the previous times I ran I got easily frustrated and overall I was just not confident in myself. WELL NOT THIS TIME RUNNING  I AM WHIPPING YOUR BEHIND Monday Oct 17. …

Week 2

Well, as promised I am blogging about my jogging journey. This week is the second week of my walker to runner plan. I had a busy week, a 50% midterm, meetings, a bonding event, but I met the neighbours cat so that was a highlight. I also finally found a grey overcoat for under $30 …

The return

The Complicatedness of running (yes I made up that word)

I have come to the conclusion that there are two types of runners: experienced and inexperienced, I fall under the latter category. My mother falls into the first category, of running for over 20 years, meaning she can run far and stay with it mentally. Me: I run up the street and then want to …

what is summer?

The idea of summer. Like, I mean all those weird quotes about: “make this the best one” or 30 things to do this summer (like who actually does those) or the magazines that are like, do this with your girls and go camping and shit. Am I the only one whose summer is not like …

Things I learned in University

University: in grade 12 I was so excited about university, the pressure, the city, even being away from home. Come August, I did not want to leave. I was so scared, I didn’t know if Carleton was right for me. But you know what? I went anyway, and it took me forever to find friends. …
