I’ll be honest, last Monday I was ready to throw in the towel on this week. It started off sleepless and I just wasn’t ready to go through that again. But I’ve been trying a new solution and so far…..well, knock on wood. For me, getting enough sleep will totally turn the world around. I did have to cancel my 1 year anniversary dinner date with Kurt, but other than that, I got to keep all my super fun social plans. It was a really good week.
- For your eyes While I don’t entirely agree, I did like this article in Vice about what it’s like for a woman to turn 30. While I’ve never been in an industry where looks and youth carry the weight that they do for the author, I definitely get where she’s coming from, albeit in a much less exaggerated way.
- For your ears I love cover songs. I love The Big Chill. I love The Smalls. So obviously I love this.
- For your health I recently needed to see a doctor on short notice. I couldn’t get an appointment with my GP and the value I place on my time is far too inflated for me to go to a walk in clinic. I tried Medeo, a new service available free to all Canadians. I created an account and made an appointment. I spoke with a person and the whole thing took less than 10 minutes. When I logged in later to Skype with my doctor, he was there. No waiting. And he sent my prescription directly to my local pharmacy. The whole thing was so seamless I can’t even believe it. I would absolutely recommend this service to any Canadian.
- For the win So many great things happened this week, it’s almost hard to pick one best thing. I started sleeping again. I had a great mid-week date with Katie where we went running and then ate cronuts. I went the Ukrainian Cultural Centre for their monthly community dinner with a group of close friends (PEROGIES)! I went on a last minute trip to Vancouver to see White Denim, one of Kurt’s favourite bands. Like I said, so much great stuff. But the ultimate winning moment was easy–Kurt and I celebrated the 1 year milestone in our relationship. It doesn’t get any better than life with him.
I hope this last week was great for you and the one coming up is even better! Happy Monday!
