Eurotrip: Cardiff & The Doctor Who Experience

Warning, this post will contain a large amount of fan girl.

During my last trip to Wales, the boyfriend and I had a quick day trip to the lovely capital, Cardiff. It's probably one of my favourite cities in the entire world, it's so beautiful. Besides, where else do you find a castle that is centuries old in the middle of a city? It also has an insane shopping district where I could probably get lost for hours if someone let me. This is the kind of city I'd love to live in one day. It's our compromise, the boyfriend and I, because it's not too busy (like London) and not too small (perfect for me).

Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

Last Thursday, I went to the Museum of Fine Arts for a school assignment. My partner and I were tasked with exploring a museum in the city and we settled on this classic. I'd been to the museum before, but it's always such a fun experience. Honestly, Montreal is full of fascinating places like this one. Best of all, it's free! You only pay for the temporary collection. Right now, there's a showing on glass art called Chihuly, which is why there's a great glass art piece right in the front of the museum. Isn't it beautiful? I'm hoping to go see Chihuly before it ends, because it looked really awesome.

My favourites: September

So my favourite month of the year is already underway (it's my favourite because it's my birthday month), so I thought it would be a good time to introduce my September Favourites. Basically, it'll be a list of all the products I've used obsessively over the last couple of weeks, or movies I've seen, or music I've heard, or anything I've been adoring. This list is completely random, but here it goes.

Montreal Comiccon 2013

It's become a tradition of sorts that every year, me and cousin attend the Montreal Comiccon. I still remember when the 'Con was set at Bonaventure and how small it was. These days, it's a major event in the city where all geeks and nerds unite for a full weekend of activities. They had events happening Thursday night! We went on the very last day of Comiccon, because neither of us could get time off work on Saturday. Nevertheless, it was a really fun day. We showed up bright and early, and hardly waited in line at all. I remember last year we waited almost an hour to get inside. Oddly enough, we had also bought our tickets in advance last year.

Don't put dreams aside.

I think a lot about the future.

Like a lot.

And I love making lists. Lists what I want to accomplish, where I want to travel, and what I want to learn. There are many lists and sometimes I think I should write those lists on my wall to keep me inspired. Sometimes, life can be a little mundane and it's hard to remember what you're looking forward to. That's why I make those list, because I don't want to lose sight of what I want to do. It's almost like when Ellie in Up made that adventure book? It motivated her to go on her own adventures. I have my own version of that, it's a small notebook where I write whatever goes through my head. Quotes I like, ideas I have, pictures that inspire me. It's an everything notebook.

Tell 'em that it's my birthday

So although my birthday was last weekend, I didn't get a chance to celebrate with my friends until the next week. I would have put up the pictures earlier, but as expected, I woke up very hungover and didn't do much for the rest of the day. Excuse my lack of updates, I have a couple of posts written up but I have no picture yet. Plus, it was the first week of my last year of university, so I've been busy, busy busy.

Anyway, click below for the drunken debacle that was my 22nd birthday.

If we just keep dancing like we're 22

I'm turning 22 in less than two days.

Twenty two.

It's crazy fast time flies, doesn't it? I don't feel 22. Sometimes I think I'm still 18 mentally. I always thought I would be in a completely different place at 22. I thought 22 was an age where I knew where my career was going, I lived on my own, and I would be happy. One out of three ain't so bad, now is it? I am happy. There are a lot of circumstances I would change if I could, but I can't right now. I have to be patient and let things work themselves out.
