Hey everyone. How is everyone doing? I have been MIA for the past week or so and haven’t posted anything. Life has been busy but things are going well. I will keep you all posted but just thought I’d say hi!
This long weekend, Canada will be celebrating 150 years! Happy Canada Day! 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦
I love my country and am so proud to be a Canadian. Where are all you from? All over the world, I’m sure!
Also, here is a cute picture of Arko just because:
Arko will be turning 9 on July 16th! I always try to do something fun for him (Yes, I know he doesn’t actually know it’s his birthday but still!-people have huge parties for their babies and enfants!) Does anyone have a fun idea on how to celebrate his birthday? He isn’t friendly, so no dog party, but maybe a fun activity at home or a recipe you might have for a cake or dog cookies? Thanks in advance!
So, a few months ago, my cousin convinced me to join online dating. I was super reluctant for the longest time, but I finally did. I am a home body, so there aren’t many opportunities for me to meet people, so I thought like-minded individuals who are also home bodies would be online.So, I joined Match.
My Dad is the most hardworking and honest person I know. He came to Canada when he was 14 years old and after going to high school for a couple of years, he dropped out to support his family back home in India. He remembers his first job fondly; a delivery boy for the local Chinese Restaurant. Making only 5 dollars an hour, he worked hard to get tips so that he could support himself here and his parents, grandparents and sister back home.
Thank you so much to Inspiration Pie for nominating me for this award. This is my first nomination and since I have just started blogging a couple of months ago, I was so happy to see I was nominated. Please be sure to check out Inspiration Pie’s blog. She is also fairly new to the blogosphere and is doing a great job on her blog. I love reading her posts and interacting with her!
Something I have noticed recently, I have a new appreciation for keeping flowers inside the home. I love it! I use to think it was overrated and wasn’t sure why people spent so much money on buying flowers for their home only to put it in a vase and have them die in a few days, but now I get it!
The different colors, the smell, the natural beauty.
I bet that by the title, you probably think I am writing about how my dog has separation anxiety… Nope. The opposite actually.
I am starting work tomorrow and am already feeling separation anxiety from Arko! This is so sad and a bit embarrassing but I am really going to miss the bugger. I have always been obsessed with him, but these past 8 months of being unemployed, I have become even more attached and obsessed with my little baby! Ok, he is not so little, he is almost as tall me in full length and weighs close to a 100 lbs, but still! He is little to me.
I have always been self conscious about my skin. I started getting pretty bad acne around 14 and it never really seemed to go away fully. I have acne scars all over my face, my back and a few on my chest. I tried countless products and in the end had to rely on prescription pills and creams because there was really no other way around it. Now, I use a prescription cream for maintenance and for when the breakouts come running back.
So after almost 8 months of being unemployed, searching for jobs, applying and then getting rejected or getting unreasonable offers, I am going to be employed!! And best of all, it is for a great organization!!
I rarely step out of my comfort zone. I am a creature of habit and always do things the same. In addition to this, I get shy and awkward really quickly when I am put in a different situation. The combination is a no-no.
