i’d like to thank my mom & i wish for world peace

Writing brings me a lot of peace and satisfaction. I’m relatively new to the blogosphere and I’m really grateful that some people have discovered my story. Especially the 2 bloggers who nominated me for these little tokens. And Elly, who also nominated me and I didn’t realize was following, but probably didn’t know I’ve been loving her blog for quite some time too.

These badges mean that I must
a) Link back to those who nominated me
b) Tell you 7 things about me
c) Nominate a bunch of other great bloggers

And so…

1. I believe everything happens for a reason.

2. I eat chocolate everyday.

3. I have a weakness for sequins. I want them. All of them.

4. I want to marry Jason Segel. I just feel like we’d get along, and that he’d like hanging out with me too.

5. I hate diet-talk with a fervent passion I usually reserve only for paper cuts, Nickelback, and my father.

6. I’m on the market for a pet hedgehog.

7. I love reading and I love poetry. Good books and poems can be better company than some people.

8. My sister and my mom are my best friends.

You may have noticed those were eight things about me, but seven is a horribly uneven, prime number and eight is just better.


To keep the chain going, I recommend 13 blogs that I can’t get enough of. I read these blogs all the time and you should too:

My fellow Torontonian, Jen, with whom I seem to have a lot in common and fights the good fight – Little Love Life

Rachel, who is always forward moving, full of positivity and gratitude – Palate For Life

My brave and brilliant cousin, who just started a blog of her own – Chronically Real

The beautifully written blog, and the girl who has offered me lots of kindness and encouragement – The Breakfast Diaries

One of the bloggers who’s words spoke to me long before I started blogging, and who’s inspiration I’m more grateful for than she knows – Learning To Listen And Trust

The sweet-as-honey, Andy, who’s blog reads like a poem and is full of light – Baby Steps; Serendipitous Mornings

This positive blog by CJ, that inspired me during a time in my life when not much could – Healthy Happy Whole

This girl’s spirit and positive perspective, who’s strength and musings are totally inspiring – One Girl Army Strong

Karina, whom I’ve been following before I started a blog of my own, and has given me motivation and the ability to have a laugh at myself – Like Some Cat From Japan

The strong girl who brings positivity to a movement that often doesn’t keep a hopeful spirit – Mind Running Wild

The girl behind the camera, who posts gorgeous photos and whom I’d love to learn more about – Smiles Can Be Catching
