Lately I've been wondering about the future. I've never pictured myself staying in Ottawa. I get bored doing the same things. And when I stay bored for a while I get depressed. I can't imagine having the same job for an extended amount of time.

So every once in a while I apply for jobs outside the city. And now that the possibility of moving out of Ottawa is there, I feel that I want to stay for a little bit longer? For one, the thought of moving all my furniture and renting out my house just stress me out. And maybe I'm actually more hasty and less gutsy than I thought.

All I know is there are too many trashy morning talk shows and Judge __(insert name here)__, and I think eventually I will end up where I am suppose to be.


  1. Awe, I love this post dear! I am so uncertain of so many things in my life at the moment even though I have a lot of certainty. I love the pictures you chose for this. :) xx Pip

  2. love that smoke and lights picture!

    I hate doing the same job for more then a year. I totally know how you feel. but now that I work for myself, I'm really really happy...

    I know you will find your happiness too!

  3. I'm afraid of my future too, but time will tell :) great pictures!

  4. Well now you have options! Even if you choose not to go, at least you'll know you're there because you WANT to be, not because life forced you to :)

  5. I think I am the opposite of you. Change totally scares me!

  6. Hahaha. I used to push my ex-bf's back then to match with me..and they didn't like it. For a change now, the husband likes to match. :) I think its cute if the guy initiates it. I usually match him with accessories, but now he wants to match clothes..

    I had that feeling back when I was still in my home country. I got sick of my life back there. I mean, I like doing routines.. I like feeling at home.. but then I always wondered what would happen if I moved somewhere else? I've always dreamed of living in a foreign country, study, work, meet someone, etc.. which happened to me SOONER than I thought. When I got into the situation, I was overwhelmed..I knew it was coming, but still there was a bit of uncertainty. It's normal. If you do end up getting the job, you'll miss home but then you'll enjoy some place new, meet new people, have a different lifestyle, etc. Congratulations in advance. I can't wait to see more updates. :)

  7. Maury! Maury! Maury! That show is horrible and hysterical...and occasionally sad.

    Not less gutsy. Places and the people have a way of making connections to us, even when we try to avoid letting that happen. I grew up in this area, moved around a little, and planned to not settle here. But it happened anyway. So to satisfy my need for change, I change jobs every 3 years or so.

    You will end up where you're supposed to's unavoidable.

  8. Fab pictures darling!


  9. I hope you go for it! Its definitely scary to move out and go through that hassle, but I think it'll pay off for you.

  10. Amazing, love the first picture the most. I adore cats and tigers and anything related.

  11. I used to feel the same way you did, then I just got tired.... and bored... then everything seems boring after a while. But bored is better than being stressed or being in trouble, so I am grateful and count my blessings. I am healthy.... what can I say? Can't wait for retirement!

  12. Sometimes the same activity made us get bored and push us to find out the new things

  13. Lovely inspiring photos!


  14. I loved this inspirational photos, you have a great selection here :)
    Your blog is amazing, keep on the amazing job :)


  15. Hello Dear! It has been awhile since I have been on blogger but I came back to your site - love the new pics and 'look!'

    I definitely encourage you to follow your heart and your dreams if resources allow...I wish that I could move out of TX and fly off to somewhere exotic -- but with a new baby and my job, that would be near impossible. *sigh* Good luck!

  16. You never try, you never know babe =) Try it out and see how it harm being a little adventurous. If things don't work out, go back to Ottawa.

  17. I can understand your feelings, when i moved to Venice i cried for 3 days 'cause i didnt know anybody, i didn't know the city and i had all my things in much stress....but the i think that changings are good, they make you feel "alive" you know what i mean? I hate being bored...i think that if something is supposed to happen it will happen so don't worry too much for the future ;)

  18. People who are considered as the most successful are those who take risks. :)

    But before making a big decision Miss Julie, just take your time thinking about moving out. The pros and cons, blah blah. God bless!

  19. It's the same for me and maybe most people. I would love to move out of my area and go far away for college, but I know that I would worry a lot if I moved out of California.

  20. so true. haven't we all contemplated and wondered?

  21. I found that even when I tried really hard to go one direction in life, that things which were meant to happen happened, and things that were not, didn't. So I just keep doing my thing (without lazing around too much, cause let's face it, what can happen if you don't go out?) and everything seems to fall in place. I hope you figure things out. :)

    Love, Moon
