Well it’s February 29th! And even with that extra day it feels like this month has flown by. I think the lack of days made it a bit harder for me to meet my goals for this month so I came up a little bit short. I am still pleased with myself though because at the halfway mark it was looking like I wasn’t even going to come close, but I buckled up and pulled through! So let’s have a look…

The unfurling dimensions and colours of bismuth reflect the inner workings of my mind. You could look at it a thousand times and see a different stone every time. Whichever way you look at it there are certain layers or colours hidden; some are exposed while others are unseen. This chameleon of gemstones, how can one ever know what it is truly thinking?

I was watching the news yesterday and saw that Bruno Mars was accused of stealing “Uptown Funk“. At first this sparked my interest. But the song that followed the accusation, sounded little like “Uptown Funk” at all. There was a somewhat similar beat, and it did have the words “funk you up”, but by no means was “Uptown Funk” an outright copy of this song. The news anchor followed up by saying that the group who wrote “Funk You Up” claims their song is where Bruno Mars got their inspiration for Uptown Funk. Okay stop there. Inspiration? There is a HUGE difference between stealing and inspiration.Read More »
abstract (adj): existing in thought or as an idea but not having a physical or concrete existence.
My take on abstract is destination. Many of us feel like we don’t know where we’re going in life. Our destination is an inconstant glimmer in our minds; we never really know what obstacles we will meet along the way, ones that will change our path forever. It is good to have an idea of what we want in our futures, but it is also good to be open to change. Rarely does anything go exactly as planned, but when we meet these obstacles with an open heart we may find something we never would have discovered otherwise.
I see myself as the seed of a dandelion, landing here and there for moments, considering settling in, until a gust of wind picks me up and carries me away to somewhere new. I haven’t found the perfect place to grow yet.

Can I rant? Well I’m going to so buckle up. Attention grabbing headlines infuriate me. Why? You know that person at The Bay who sprays perfume on you and tells you “this scent was made for you“, or that person at the cash register who says, “you’re only getting one of these shirts? But it’s 2 for $25, you’d better get two.” Well basically a catchy headline is no different from these salespeople pushing their product on you. This irked me to begin with, but what makes me even more mad is that I feel like I’ve reached a point where I need to become that pushy salesperson or else be lost in the realm of un-clicked articles sitting neglected in some dusty corner of the internet.

Before I came home I was really excited; I thought that all my time away would help me see everything in a new light, and I would be able to see new things in my familiar world and write about them. Yet somehow, since I’ve actually been home my inspiration has fizzled from an ardent flame to the coals glowing in the fireplace as it dies out.
