A Trip to The Art Museum

So I am the worst vlogger so I decided to write a bit more about my trip here on my blog. I had to go to the art museum again for school in the city. I was lucky enough to have my boyfriend here this week so I dragged him along.

We woke up to lots of rain but that didn’t dent our plans. For all those who read my anxiety post, this will be a mini update for you guys. I had no anxiety taking the train today, not even a little bit. I had to tell my boyfriend what to do so I think that’s why I wasn’t nervous. Also, my boyfriend keeps me calm. He is very much a go with the flow kind of person. If things go wrong, there’s always a way to get out of it. His presence just makes me feel safe. I love that he can be my anchor without him even knowing or trying. It’s good to have people around that make me feel good.

We had to walk on one of the businesses streets in the rain. It was miserable, to say the least. As much as it sucked I do love visiting the city. When we saw the museum in the distance it was like seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

When we went to buy our tickets we found out the worst news, the majority of the museum was closed. Now, I had to go for a project so that really angered me. It took us all about 20 minutes to look at all 20 pieces. It was gorgeous but a “waste of time”. We giggled about it after and went to go eat.

All in all, it was a fun little day with my boyfriend. Even if the museum was a waste and not as grand as I thought it would be I love spending time with him. We laughed a lot and were soaking wet.

Why as a Canadian I Care About American Gun Laws // National Walkout Day

It’s national walkout day. Students across the United States are walking out of their class for 17 minutes to protest gun violence. The 17 minutes are for the 17 victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting last February.

I am Canadian, I currently live in Canada, Montreal to be exact. I have gotten a lot of critique lately for my strong opinions on what is happening in the US. I post in solidarity with a lot of the movements that are currently happening. I have been told that it doesn’t matter and I don’t live there so it doesn’t affect me. I’ve also been told that I was ridiculous and that my voice doesn’t matter.

I wanted to come on here and tell you guys that this is a very wrong mindset. As Canadians, we should care what is happening in the United States. They are our neighbours and we shouldn’t be leaving anyone behind especially young children that are being killed just for going to school.

A huge reason that I also care so much is because I lived there for 12 years. Philadelphia is home to me. I watch as friends of mine that live over there fear going to school. I never want to be in a position where I feel like I am not safe in a place I go to every day. I am a human I have a lot of empathy. I am scared to be shot in school. No one should ever have to live that, that is why I stand with the students today.

I will stand proud, I will fight. I will post my awareness on my social media. I am a student. I am Canadian. I am will be on the right side of history. Enough is enough.

Dollar Gingerbread House

I hope everyone is having a great winter break. I thought I’d pop in to talk about a little fun we had on the first of January. Though a gingerbread house is very Christmasy, they were a dollar at the store so I had to buy one. Who doesn’t like the sound of candy fun at a dollar?

I enlisted my boyfriend and younger sisters to help. My boyfriend was not too pleased but after we started was very into making sure it was perfect.
