So tired after being in the sun and biking walking for extended periods in 35+ degree heat for 30+ minutes for a few days in a row. Totally wiped. Gonna watch an episode or 2 of Rutherford Falls and then fall asleep.

The sunshine coast in BC is a special place. Perfect spot to escape a heat wave and highly polluted air.

Yep. Just submitted my citizenship application. Fingers crossed!

The best way to emigrate to Canada is to enroll in a university and get a study permit. I totally understand that going back to school can be a big step back in life, but it opens a door that is otherwise VERY hard to crack open.

As background, my immigration journey started way back in 2016 and it took years of paperwork to become a permanent resident here in 🇨🇦 so I'm not just like some American thinking "I'll fill out an app online and at least see what they say"

So I started filling out the online application for Canadian citizenship last night...I think this might actually happen!

Went and saw a candlelight concert from a string quartet in Vancouver last night. They played Joe Hisaishi music from Ghibli movies. It was everything I wanted and needed it to be.

I love systematically removing cop cars from play sets my toddler receives

If you're looking for a really solid rap artist, give Dakota Bear a listen.

Feel like I'm just falling apart today. Don't know why I am feeling so absolutely emotionally destroyed and incapable of doing work but I'm just really hardcore NOT FEELING IT.

I assumed D20s were new. This one is from Ptolemaic Egypt. It's carved out of serpentinite.

Finding that I really need to see a therapist before this baby arrives...
