How do they do it?

Sometimes I feel boredom that engulfs my every pore. Other days, I think there is absolutely ZERO time for me to accomplish everything I want to do. I want to update my website, I want to update my camera lenses, I want to cook that new thing I saw on FB, I want to clean up the spare room, I want to start recording a song, I want to learn a new editing technique, I want to buy a video stabilizer, I want to learn how to edit videos... the list goes on. I want to do SO many things and I have no time. I get home after an hour long drive from my regular day job and I end up sitting on the couch tired - enjoying what's left of the day with my partner and best friend. It's hardly anything to complain about, my life is great. Sometimes I'll leave the couch to edit photos, but I also want time to myself as well to unravel.

How do people balance their time? Doesn't it take time... to balance your time? I don't have TIME to balance my time. And don't even get me started on kids! I recently told a client that parents are superheroes as far as I'm concerned. If I feel like I have no time, I can't imagine what they must feel like - having to be in charge of a whole other human, sometimes more than one! I'm 29 this year and I don't feel like it at all. At most, I'm mentally 23-25. Physically my exterior looks like 20-21 (I've been told), and internally I'm probably 67 with the amount of hot dogs and bacon I eat. 

Anyways - tomorrow is Friday. Let's just think about that. 

Extreme Weather

I. Love. Extreme. Weather.

Pretty soon when I update the Nature Albums on this site completely, you'll be able to see what I mean. That being said, the purpose of this post isn't to advertise my love of weather- but rather pay an ode to the power it contains. 

Hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, volcano eruptions. All of these have occurred, in abundance, over the last few weeks/months around our globe. The destruction we see on television is just a small visual representation of the actual pain and suffering I can only imagine residents are experiencing. 

Meanwhile, here in Canada, we've got temperatures in the 30's and my mom is going to the beach tomorrow. Should we consider ourselves lucky? Sure. Should we proceed with caution? Definitely.  

Count your blessings, but global warming is here and everyone should be mindful of it. 


When I'm sick, I get depressed. I legitimately curl up and try to sleep it all away but I can't fall asleep because it's so uncomfortable. (I also have self-diagnosed insomnia). About 5 years ago, while I was asking God why he created illness, I felt quite useless and I decided that I would play around on Photoshop to pass time. Within 4 hours I had created my first logo and business card - with absolutely NO intention of starting a business. I was so weak, I couldn't even think of starting the stove to make myself soup but I had unknowingly started the rest of my future that day. That one, sick day.
