This month was busy and a bit up and down, but I really feel like I played tourist in my hometown and got out a lot to check out things I haven’t seen in a while, as well as just wandering and appreciating the city while taking photos.
If you get paid biweekly, then you can appreciate with me that MarchB pB wasB pB aB pB threeB pB paychequeB pB monthB pB and that’s something that deserved a helluva lot of celebrating. So I did just that – by loading myself up on awesome shit.
Namely? These beauties:
I also checked out the Glenbow Museum (for free!) and kinda loved it. Museums are hit and miss for me, and I’ve been to the Glenbow before, but I loved some of the newer additions and the exhibit photographing Canadian First Nations was beautiful.
Plus the whole third floor showcasing the history of Calgary is a really cool and interactive floor. The only thing I didn’t appreciate is that their section on residential schools was small and hidden away in an unmarked passage – it may not be a pretty piece of our history, but it’s important.
They do first Thursdays of the month free – I strongly recommend checking it out!
My working out religiously sort of fell off the rails a bit, mostly around the cleanse and daylight savings time, but I’m getting it back on track and really trying to listen to my body. So not all is lost.
I finally learned how to do my taxes! Online, granted, and with some serious coaching from my Dad – but hey, next year should be a breeze.
Difficult Women by Roxane Gay – Guys, I want to crawl inside this book and just curl up there and rest my weary head and heart for a while. I want everyone I know to read it so they can understand the heartbreak and wonderfulness, the dual-sided horrible pleasure, that it is to be a woman. I would love all the men in the world to consider reading it so that they could then go “ooohhhhh” collectively and finally just fucking get it.
So ya, I liked this book. Read it.
