Becca Becca's Blog Leave a Comment

I remember that day in grade seven like it was yesterday: about 75% of our class had glasses, and I was finally getting a pair too! I didn’t have to worry about sitting at the front of the class any more to see… I had my cool blue frames with squiggly lines alone the arms. …

The Calm Before The Storm

Last week I took the train down to Toronto for the OpenText Innovation Tour. As I stepped onto the platform in the ‘big city’ I immediately recognized the main difference between Torontonians and Waterloo residents: the rush to get to your destination.

Almost two weeks ago, I messaged 20 of my female Facebook friends and asked them to send me 2 things: a photo without any makeup, and a caption describing how they feel or what they like about themselves.

I’m on a plane heading back to Canada thinking about 2013 and the ups and downs that came my way. The plane is quiet on the red-eye flight and as I look out the window I see nothing bit the glow of the city lights below. The sight out the window takes me back to …

There is something to be said for being alone and feeling completely content. Close your eyes, picture your favourite moment… who is there? What are you doing? Now ask yourself this: who and what is it that truly makes you happy? I’m currently listening to Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful”, blogging, journaling, reminiscing on …

I originally started this post as a Thanksgiving spin-off, but I just wasn’t happy with the direction it was (or should I say wasn’t) taking. SO, I’m starting again, reflecting on the last few weeks and doing a self-check of how I am feeling. Truth is, I am frustrated. What is even more frustrating than being …
