What’s up Melrika readers? First time here? Well, welcome to the blog. It has been 2 years and time does fly by. This post is a bittersweet one. A vibe that is abnormal for me to share in a text. So here I am, announcing my departure from the blog. Why? I am not quitting from my blogging life but I decided to move on with future projects. After finishing my student life and moving on with my career path, things changed quite a bit. You must think, how different could it be when you are changing from being a student to a full-time worker? Oh, I am also amazed when I reflected on it. From changing to different schedules to getting closer and helping out my family and meeting someone new, they have made me understand better what life actually is. The priorities and values that I had slightly changed and I am also very happy with them. So instead, of being on and off, I decided to take another direction. I am still …
True fact: I am not a great cook. There’s probably 3 recipes that I totally ace, but I usually am not super creative in the kitchen and prefer to lend a hand instead of cooking on my own (also, I could eat grilled cheese every day and survive). Nonetheless, I love to eat delicious food and I don’t hate cooking: I just don’t always have the patience, the ideas, or the time to prepare a nice meal. So I decided to try a subscription box for food, to save myself the trouble of planning meals and going grocery shopping, and decided to subscribe to one week of Miss Fresh.
I have this strange tendency to fall in love with pretty much any large city I visit. New York? Fabulous! Toronto? I want to live there! Paris? Always looking forward to going back! Stockholm? It feels like home! And the list goes on… Nevertheless, I have a very special place in my heart for my hometown, Montreal. So when Modern Map Art offered we do a review of a Montreal map poster, the answer was very obvious 😉
