All Hail Queen Lana

   So in very important recent news; I’M GOING TO SEE LANA DEL REY THIS SUMMER. So that’s extremely important. I was initially going to Sasquatch with my girlfriends, but then we heard Queen Lana was doing a tour, so we are road tripping to Seattle to see her. And I mean if you listen to Lana at all, you know that a road trip through the states to see her is practically choice. 

   Also I thought this photo was appropriate because it accurately captures my summer spending behaviours.. Like drop everything, drive 20 hours to Seattle to see my soul sister and reigning Queen? My answer to that? I AM FUCKING CRAZY, BUT I AM FREE! 

  Long live the Queen,

Abby

   You know how some music is like a book mark in your life, and whenever you go back to that one album or song, it brings you right back to some point in your life? Well The Arkells bring me back to driving in the summer sun and singing at the top of my lungs, or dancing in a drunken stupor trying to get my friends to understand the awesome that is The Arkells (they get it for the most part). Anyways, when I turn them on, it’s like the sun coming out.

 There really is no better feeling for me than finishing a paper. As you may recall if you read my last post, I have a hell of a time with papers. anyways I just finished it like two seconds ago and I compare the feeling to that kind of relief you feel after doing a sprint or some kind of ass kicking workout. Except the workout was a week of reading and note jotting and doubting my life and I’m not any more fit. So what the hell did I gain is the real question.

   Anyways, now that that bullshit is over with I feel like my life has fallen back into a more comfortably chaotic place. I can see the future without the damned paper looming in my face. And what does the future possess you ask?! Well, lunch. But also I get to jet off to Vancouver for a weekend this month so I’m pretty jazzed about that!! One of my friends from Japan is doing a program at Simon Fraser Uni, so naturally if the fella is in my country I have to make pains to see him. Anyways so anticipation of that should get me through the month, which will bring us to April, which means exams then SUMMER. Although its -30 here daily I’m convinced summer is around the corner. Suck it ice, I’m bringing the shorts out.

Research Papers

 

 Fuuuuuuuuuuuck my life. I have a research paper to write. One thing to know about me is that I have extreme paper writing anxiety. I don’t know why but its like I’m afraid to write anything down like it might already be wrong or I’ll have to start over so I just stare at the pages forever. I think it doesn’t help as well that my school’s online library databases are so impossible for me to use, like I’m used to Google, type in a word and you’re golden. But these databases I swear were made just to Fuck with you. 

   On top of all this I wanted to go for a run today but I don’t have time.. And the air outside is so cold it hurts your face, lungs, and joints. I think what I really need right now is summer and not being a student. Or maybe a deep breath. Naw fuck that, I choose summer. 6 MORE WEEKS!

Bye now,

Abby

I’m on my University’s rowing team as a Coxswain, I’m absolutely addicted to and in love with my team. We spent Reading week on Victoria Island training, this is a video from the week, basically captures the essence of such an awesome team. Miss them already and its only been a day off of training!

I got into the strokes since last August, I can’t say they’re my all time favorite but damn they grow on you! As for this song, I’m not a huge Daft Punk fan but their collaborations are pretty spot on, so naturally I can’t stop listening to the stylings of Julian and Daft Punk.

One of my favorite photos from the time I spent in Japan this summer. This is from 350m above Tokyo in the Tokyo Skytree.
