June is done, and I forgot it was the long weekend and that we were going away. But, happy early Canada Day, friends!

TED Talks

This month, I watched a ton of TED Talks for work, and I wanted to share some of my favourites!


Other news and highlights

  • I went to this street market with my best friend at the beginning of the month, which was a lot of fun (and when we bought the books!)
  • My other best friend was in town, and I hadn’t seen them for over a year, so it was so good to see them!!! We watched all of the Good Omens miniseries in two days.
  • Speaking of, the Good Omens miniseries has been released and I’ve already watched it twice!!!!! It’s so good, please watch it.
  • I went to Edmonton for work, which was my official first work trip, and it was great. I had a couple of 12+ days, but it was also a great week. I learned a ton, met a lot of amazing people, and got to observe in court (actually, anybody can observe in court in Canada because technically the court is public, it’s just that no one really does that). After observing so much in court, I can definitively say that life really is stranger than fiction, y’all.
  • My friends hosted a birthday party for their dog, which is a little crazy but was also a great time.
  • I also went out one night with some of my friends which was great! I got filled in on the tea and went dancing and had a grand ole time.

Here’s the birthday boy and his sister!

  1. Ok first of all… a birthday party for a dog?! How bizarre and I LOVE IT! I would totally throw my cat a birthday party but there’s no way she would let me put a hat on her.

    Second of all…. Good Omens – was awesome. I absolutely loved it and thought they did a brilliant and faithful version of the book. You could feel the love in every episode.

    Fun fact: Heaven in Good Omens? Yeah, that was filmed on the business park where I worked. Had I known about it I would have turned up to work at the weekends.

    1. Right??? The whole time, I was telling my friends that it was ridiculous but also that I loved it.

      Ahhhhh yes!!! I’m so glad you agree! It was amazing and such a true adaptation! OMG amazing! I definitely would’ve gone on weekends if I could’ve seen any of them lol

      1. He’s great fun. I saw the duck one first (it was on Facebook) and that’s why Mr. Wyrm and I started looking for his other stuff and found the spam emails. So funny.
