    Running Through the 6ix

    … with my woes. I have a feeling that this post is definitely going to be my longest out of all the ones I’ll be posting. When I was going through the things we did when we were in Toronto, I actually had no idea how much we did. Admittedly, there are a lot of things that I still want to see in Toronto so a trip back is definitely needed. Canada is actually on my list of places to work abroad and this trip was partly to give me an insight into what Toronto is like. I love Toronto. Being a city girl, Toronto is definitely the sort of place I…

    Sh*t They Don’t Tell You About Adulting

    Adulting is hard. I can’t tell you how many times I complain a day about having to “adult”.

    A Letter to My 16-Year Old Self

    Dear Chynna, Okay… Listen here you little punk. I’m going to be brutally honest with you because whilst other people will, you’ll most likely not listen to anyone except yourself (maybe). You’ll probably never see this (unless someone invents time travel, and I get to go back and kick your arse) but I’ll write this letter as if you will. Right. Here goes. YOUR LIFE IS NOT THAT DRAMATIC. Stop mopping around lamenting about the so-called drama in your life. This includes girls who are ratchet, boys who don’t know what they want and your parents. It’s been 6 years, so I’m a bit dusty on the details of what…
