Is it just me, or has the last half of October and the first few days of November been unbelievably transitional?
All of my shit goes in cycles. If I break something important (for example, my car), two more significant items are bound to follow. If I receive an unexpected sum of money, I’ll probably stumble into another chunk or two over the following weeks.
And when things change, they change.
For the last year and a half, I’ve been putting off working on my craft full-time. There’s always been a client, or a side project, or a different job altogether. In November, the universe basically slapped me across the face and said bitch, stop fucking around.
So here I am. Admittedly, still fucking around.
Over the last few weeks I’ve taken two mini-trips (Vancouver and Saltspring Island), and over the next week I have two more planned (also Vancouver, but now + Whistler). I’m always the most creative when I’m on my feet / out of my comfort zone, so I’m looking forward to seeing what happens.

Let’s not victimize Katya; it discredits how far she’s come. She’s lovable in part because she is not yet fully formed– and neither are most of us. Many of us are a work in progress, which is why we relate to her.
