Cozy Corner| September Highlights

Can you believe that we are already into October? Honestly, I can. Ever since about the second week of September I've thought it was October. I wasn't consciously trying to rush September away, but for some reason, October was looming large. And then Summer came back (it has been crazy hot here the last couple… Continue reading Cozy Corner| September Highlights


Fall 2017 TBR: Frightful Fall

This summer I decided that I was going to great a seasonal (3 month long) TBR, and I loved the outcome and effect it had on my reading. So I have decided to continue with a Fall list! Because I have been itching to read more suspense and thriller novels, I have loosely themed this… Continue reading Fall 2017 TBR: Frightful Fall

Writing 101: The Red Maple Tree

Good evening! I've decided this evening to work on yesterday's writing 101 assignment which I didn't get a chance to look at yesterday. The assignment today was to write a particular scene (more on that in a moment) and the twist was to write it from three different perspectives. An idea for how the scene… Continue reading Writing 101: The Red Maple Tree

Free writing and my Favourite Songs

Hello my lovely readers! It is day 3 of Writing 101 and so far I haven't missed a single assignment. Yay! Celebrate the small victories. Today's assignment was to use 3 of your favourite songs as inspiration for the post. The twist was to set a time and write without stopping for that whole time.… Continue reading Free writing and my Favourite Songs


Update: I have not abandoned this Blog!

Some of you probably know that I am planning a long term trip to the UK later this year. What most of you probably don’t know is that 6 months ago I started a blog to chronicle everything related to that trip (including both the lead up and the trip itself). I wrote one introductory post and then… nothing… I completely abandoned all travel plan related writing… oops! I am here now to tell you that I am committed to writing actual content for that blog!

Don’t worry, I’m still planning on writing regular content for this blog (yes, yes, I know, I’m not doing a great job on that front either). If you are interested in my travel plans and adventures I would love it if you’d come visit me over at “The Great Wide Somewhere.” That being said, if you only want to follow one of my blogs I will try to post at least semi-regular update posts with links to what I’m writing elsewhere. I have a couple of ideas about how to format those update posts, but if you do have suggestions on how to share posts between similar but different blogs, I would love to hear your input in the comments!

Keep Smiling!

The Great Wide Somewhere

Just over six months ago I wrote my first (and so far only) post on this site. If you missed that post (and who could blame you if you did) you can read it here. At that time, I informed every one of my plans to head to the U.K. on a working holiday in June 2014. I also described the purpose of this blog: to write about all the travel related topics that I was sure would come up during the lead up to the trip and then, of course, to chronicle the trip itself.

After that tantalizing post, I promptly abandoned the blog. At least, that’s the way I’m sure it appeared.

I am here today to tell you that I have not abandoned my trip plans or my intentions to chronicle the entire process. It’s just that life got in the way, I got a bit stalled…

What I Thought: Thor 2 – The Dark World

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npvJ9FTgZbM I came home from work last night, had a shower, got into my pj's, had dinner, and settled in to have a comfy night on my computer. I thought I might watch Monsters University. Then I got a text message from a friend - did I want to go see Thor 2 at 9:30?… Continue reading What I Thought: Thor 2 – The Dark World
