Nobody Home

{Photos by Werner Pawlok, "Cuba - Expired Vol II"}

I'm off to Havana, Cuba for a week. I'm not bring my laptop. Just clothes, camera and cash. No facebook. No Twitter. Consider me off the face of the earth starting now.

Sometime this week also mark the few years I have been blogging on this site. And I just want to take a moment to thank everyone for the support. Every one of you who has taken time out of your day to read the incoherent and grammatically incorrect ramblings of a girl in Ottawa that seems to forever be trapped in a snow globe.

This site has allowed me to meet some amazing people who I would have never had the chance to meet otherwise. Some have become very important people in my life in which I am thankful. I want to take the time to thank each and every one of you.

So if you're bored and feel like celebrating with me... Come to Havana. You could follow me around, but that could get weird. But if you know Spanish and can help me locate bathrooms and haggle for cheap booze, then please do!

Thanks for reading and hopefully this site be sticking around for a few more years!

Per Barrel

These photos make me look like I'm promoting my country album. I never realized how big a barrel of hay is. By the way, when someone takes their anger out on you for no other reason than that they are feeling shitty and having a shitty day, do you let them or do you say something? I've been told that I should be the bigger person and let it slide, but I guess I'm not a big person. "Well, Jesus would forgive. Be like Jesus." Zach says. Well, Jesus got crucified in his 30s and I don't want to be crucified in my 30s. I also don't want a beard.

Speaking of which, Game of Thrones last night. Pretty freaking wild.

Tulip Season

Oh my gosh. It's so nice to not see so much snow and it's so nice not to have to wear a puffy ass coat. First real spring outfit for 2014 with tulips from Pom. Hopefully the weather will be nice this weekend, or else I'll be spending it at the MAC opening at Bayshore which is also a good way to spend an afternoon, except I need to stop shopping. First world problems. Have a good weekend!

Grateful


Today's my birthday.

I'm a year older but don't feel anymore wiser. Life didn't turn out exactly the way I thought it would and I definitely don't live according to society's expectations on what I 'ought' to do by now. But I'm cool with it, as I've learn to just let things be- if it's meant to be it will eventually happen.

I am grateful for all the opportunities that has come my way and for my friends and family that supported me through my dark times. Thanks for being there, thanks for the support, and thanks for reading Pop Champagne. I heart you guys.
