(Not So) Little Life Update: It’s Been a Minute

Hello Folks!

It has been a MINUTE… well actually it’s been three months, but here I am! I have quite the update to do!

Home
So the last time I was on here I believe I was looking for somewhere new to live. I am happy to report that I have moved (I know, for like the fourth time since moving to Ottawa)! I now live in this cute area of Ottawa, closer to my school and work, and I have two roommates. They’re old friends of mine from my McDonald days. I’m finally all settled in and although my last apartment gave me total heart eyes, this place has quickly become a cozy little home.

School
I have not skipped a beat on school since returning to Carleton this past winter. In hopes of completing my General Bachelor of Art’s as soon as possible, I’ve been taking three summer courses throughout the duration of the summer. Summer classes are exhilarated so it’s been a lot of work, but it means I’ll be finished a semester sooner, so yay! (more…)

Osheaga 2014 (1/5)

Hello Folks,

So a while back I purchased tickets to the Osheaga Music Festival in Montreal that is held over the August long weekend. I was supposed to be going to a different concert that weekend with my baby sister Bernece, but after seeing the line-up for Osheaga we decided to sell our other tickets and buy 3-day passes for Osheaga!

Around the same time I was talking to one of my oldest friends, Emma, who I hadn’t seen since 2011. Emma and I met when we were just wee buggers but I was an attention hog and Emma was a brat so we didn’t get along too well. A few years later and after some msn chatting (oh the good ol’ days) we ended up becoming best friends. With her in Alberta and myself in Ontario, it wasn’t the most conventional of friendships. I decided to take the plunge when I was about 12 years old and go and visit her. The years to follow consisted of one of us visiting the other each summer, with 2011 being the last visit. We decided it was long overdue since the last time we saw each other and since I went there last, it was her turn to come here. With Osheaga Music Festival being the highlight of my summer, we decided there wasn’t a better time she could join for!

She arrived in Ottawa on the Tuesday, my sister arrived on the Wednesday and we left for Montreal on the Thursday! So this is where my journey begins!

I’ll try to spare you the boring day-to-day details, so instead I’ll just name the bands I saw each day, maybe throw in a few photos and maybe mention some highlights, ENJOY!

Love always,
Kate
