FRIDAY LINKSSSS


love love love

It’s been another busy week… which means I’ve had little time to keep track and find interesting links on the web to share. But here is a link that will make you barf and one that will make you laugh. ENJOY! (or don’t enjoy if we’re talking about the first one)

  • Gross. The 6 Most Horrifying Lies The Food Industry is Feeding You.
  • This morning, I was on my way to work and this song started playing on my iPod. It made me smile – that doesn’t usually happen before 9am. Maybe it will make you smile too.

A few more hours then it’s the weekend. Hang in there!!

NEW MEMBER OF THE [BLOG] FAMILY

I think I’m addicted to making new blogs. That’s what happens when you have too many ideas and don’t know what to do with them all. If you have been a successful stalker of this blog, you will  know that I’ve started doing more and more photography. When I was meeting the guidance counselor in my last year of high school before applying to colleges, I was basically told “Hmmmm I’ve never seen this before… your answers are conflicting.” In other words, I wanted to be financially stable and I wanted to be an artist.

So in the end I decided that my ease with technology and my artistic nature would make me a good graphic designer. 9 years later I finally bought an SLR, 10 years later I got my first paid gig [a wedding in July – pics to come]. I’m enjoying the ride and we’ll see where it takes me.

So all my photography posts will be at the new blog, whether it be a job or just for fun. Expect lots of pictures of my dog though.

And I want your opinions puuuuuhlease. Is there a limit on how many blogs one person should have? (I feel like I could have 10) Do you think that it’s better to have one ‘lifestyle’ blog or different blogs for different aspects of your life? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

LA ST JEAN. ESTI

I was talking to Merl last Friday and told her it was a Quebec Holiday and then I had absolutely no idea what the holiday was for. And before you judge, my sister and mother had no idea either. Judge THEM, they are older. SO here is the origin according to Wikipedia:

The feast day of Saint John the Baptist or Midsummer was a very popular event in the Ancien régime of France, and it is still celebrated as a religious feast day in several countries, like Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
The tradition landed in Canada with the first French colonists. According to the Jesuit Relations, the first celebrations occurred on the banks of the Saint Lawrence River on the evening of June 23, 1636 with a bonfire and five cannon shots.

Oh did you fall asleep reading that too? There’s a bunch of patriotic stuff afterward that I don’t really care for but feel free to google it if you’re interested to know why we don’t have to work June 24th… What is important is that it’s a paid holiday [and that there are fireworks – see above]. And then we have ANOTHER paid holiday, Canada day. Unfortunately July 1st is also the day almost everyone in the province moves and that includes me this year… here’s hoping for none of the following: extreme heat, rain & truck problems.  

CAN’T STOP LISTENING TO…

You ever find a song that you just want to listen to over and over and over again? You try to force yourself to listen to other songs so that you don’t end up hating it but it’s really difficult. I only found out who these guys were a few days after they were in Montreal… and trust me, I’ve been KICKING myself ever since.


This is the acoustic version, the album version is really amazing too. Now if you will excuse me, I’m going to go watch it again.

Do you have any songs you can’t stop listening to right now?
