The Real Heroes

In my life, I have only volunteered a handful of times. I volunteered walking dogs and selling pop at local BBQs for my high school hours and on my own with Big Brothers Big Sisters because I loved the cause and wanted the free t-shirt.

Every time I volunteered, I was getting something in return.

Working at the Huntington Society of Canada (HSC), I’ve met so many selfless volunteers who dedicate large chunks of their time to plan, execute and debrief some amazing fundraisers.

Volunteers are the real heroes in my eyes. And here’s why.

It’s Better When We’re Together

Well, it has been almost 6 months now since Jake and I have started living together. Sure, we lived together during the summer at my parents house, but we both worked so much and such different hours during the summer we barely saw each other.

Now, we see each other every night, every weekend and some mornings (at 4am when he is getting ready for work and I am yelling “turn off the lights”). So inevitably, our relationship has changed and of course, I have some tactics for staying sane when living with your significant other.

Time may change me
But I can’t trace time

I feel like Jake would be so proud of me for starting a post with David Bowie lyrics. But what he doesn’t know, is that I only know this song because of Lindsay Lohan’s movie Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.

But no matter how I know the song, man, is it ever applicable to me right now. Let’s look at the changes in the past year of my life shall we?

It Ain’t Over til it’s Clover

It may just be St. Patrick’s Day today, but I feel like I’m all Irish’ed out from my celebrations this past Sunday, March 12. No, I am not referring to an epic party of some sort. I am referring to the 5K I took part in.

Don’t worry, you read that right, no one has taken over my blog without me knowing… I participated for the Huntington Society of Canada, my new job. And like always, I dragged Jake with me.
