Don’t lose hope

keep-your-head-up

I had a very different post written and scheduled for today, but in light of recent events, I needed to write and share this instead.

Dear America,

Don’t lose hope.

I know it might seem like your world has shattered, like everything you thought you knew has spiraled into a pit of uncertainty, and nothing makes sense anymore. But don’t lose hope. He will thrive on the fear, the anger, the apathy. Those emotional responses will make him stronger. But if you hold on to hope, your hope will trump hate. As Hillary, the rightful president, often said, America is great because America is good. Keep being good. Be kind to yourselves. Be kind to your neighbors. If 2016 has proven anything, it’s that life can be unfair and oh-so unpredictable. We’ve lost incredible people and important elections, but we won’t ever lose hope. Hope and love will always trump hate. We’ll get through this.

We’ve got your back.

Hugs,

Your Neighbours to the North

I came in like a wrecking ball!

Heyyyyy, my peeps! As promised, I’m here to share some pics from the Musically Macabre Halloween Hootenanny I attended on Saturday. It was a BLAST AND A HALF! We kicked things off at Adam and Roxy’s place, some teacher pals who throw the absolute BEST parties. I met a ton of celebrities while I was there.

Happy Halloween!

Yo, Halloween, ‘sup? I’m ready for you! Well, not really. But I totally know what I’m gonna BE! Or who, rather. That’s half the battle, right? Now all I need to do is hope I can scrounge up an outfit in time for the Halloween Karaoke Extravaganza I’m attending on Saturday!

Last year, I went to the same party and knocked everyone’s socks off with my Sandy Olsson costume. I was ‘bad’ Sandy with the leather and the tight pants and the at-ti-tude. Oh, lookie here, I have a couple pics!

Camper Girl!

Hey, all you fabulous people!

I can’t come to the blog right now ’cause I’m Adirondacks-bound! That’s right, for three exciting days and two starry nights, I’ll be totally off the grid. Soaking in the beautiful scenery, hiking, camping, and bonding with all the outdoor ed. students who are lucky enough to ditch school for the remainder of the week! And, best part of all, I’m actually getting paid to help supervise this group of teens with several other teachers! Saaaweeeet!

Ahh, the Adirondacks in the fall. I took the liberty of Googling images and here’s my fave:

When you think of me this week (as I’m sure you will), imagine me here in this very spot, and try not to miss me too much. Hopefully I won’t freeze my buns off.

Take care, brush your hair, and I’ll see ya next week!
