My name is Stephanie. I am in my thirties and I live in Vancouver, BC, where I work as a payroll accountant. My job is consuming, and over the years, I have sometimes found myself falling into patterns where my life became not much more than work and sleep, with my sleep often being interrupted by thoughts of work.
I started this blog to remind myself that I can and need to do better than that. I use it to record my thoughts on what makes my life valuable and worthwhile, and the experiences I have and new things I pursue in an attempt to appreciate the time I have in the world.
I am interested in people, books, movies, travel, cities, altruism, art, music, photography, things that make me laugh, and food. I am not athletic, but sporadically attempt bouts of fitness. I also seem to spend a lot of time thinking about feminism, pop culture, and politics. I live with a lovely husband and a tiny boy – both of whom I adore. I use a lot of parentheses in my writing (sorry if that’s annoying, but apparently it’s how I think) and love to get comments.
I’m happy to have you here. Please stop by often and let me know what you think, because apparently I am needy and like feedback.
