How to lose your phone and not lose your shit

About a month ago, I found a phone at my work building. It was brand new and clearly forgotten in the washroom.  So yes, I brought it to the security guard and left it along with my phone number making him promise me that he wouldn't steal it for his babymama. A couple days later I got a text saying "thank you for returning my phone, may God bless you"

I was so happy I almost cried. I didn't even reply to the text... I was just happy that I put out some good karma.

Now fast forward to Christmas eve, my iPhone goes missing without a trace. It's more than just a little heartbreaking.  But I sat hoping for a Christmas miracle.

So here it is in all its sappy glory. I am so blessed for a) NOT getting yelled at for losing my phone b) having someone to give me a phone without a second thought...I love you my handsome boyfriend.

Not only did I get a beautiful phone to use, I got a date on Christmas eve followed by unlimited family time and unlimited food and unlimited love.

I wish the same to whoever has my phone. I hope the little device is not the only thing that brings you happiness this Christmas..  In my mind this is like the movie "crash" mostly because it makes me feel better. Hope you save a life because of that phone or something along those lines.

Merry Christmas everyone!! I'm off to India for newyears tomorrow. God help me.

Stay tuned for adventurous posts.

How to eat a cookie.

Christmas is here.

It's 11.30pm and I'm sitting here on my bed, trying my best to imprint this day into my memory.

warm hugs.
old printed photos.
familiar faces.
homecooked meal.
freshly baked cookies.

and my everything beside me.

What else can I ask for on the 22nd of December?

How to be.

Friday night; and I stayed home to watch the movie "Doubt". If you aren't already in deep and undying love with Meryl Streep, this movie might seal the deal.

"Doubt can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty" 

Let that sink in.

The Connecticut shooting has got me thinking so much about North American culture and values to a point that I question my decision to move back. Forget the gun culture, but the social culture of corporate worship, drugs and drinking is enough to make me wonder. Enough to make me doubt. Why is America the superpower? Why do I want to move back?

on another note...

My brother is back home for the holidaysssss!!! We are off to India at the end of the month to spend New Years with my grandparents and cousins. December is probably my favourite month of the year. I enjoy it more than Libra season.

Lots of xo to you. Let the baking begin...

How to refocus


Every time I meet someone who is 30+, they envy me and they think I'm a baby. It starts to get annoying, but...

Regardless of what I tell them I want to do with my 24year old wisdom, I can almost guarantee a "just do it, follow your heart" in return. Alright then....

So if I was to take off and spend a month or two studying yoga,
and then a couple months doing random jobs in Singapore,
and then a couple more months finding myself in New York...

Can I blame it on my heart?

Toronto, you will still be final destination. But sometimes I wonder if I want my final destination already.

How to wake up grumpy

This is rare. But lately, it's happening to me way to often. I go to bed with SO much on my mind and I wake up angry. Usually, I can go for a run and wash things away with sweat, but that hasn't been working very well either.

Yea, I guess you can say I'm goin through some shit.

I just deactivated my twitter. Those of you who are big on twitter probably understand why it can get overwhelming sometimes. I want to take December to focus on ME, my family and have a beautiful time with my grandparents to welcome 2013. I just want to be present in the moment and reassess my life without hearing the thoughts and opinions of several social networks.

Hopefully, I never get back on twitter. Realistically, I'll miss some of you... But hey, if you really care, I'm still alive!! And if you wanna reach out to me for anything, I'm here.


This is step 1.
