Light Up Happiness

I’m one of those people who when there are too many clouds outside, I feel like I’m under an emotional cloud as well. It’s been especially bad November and December this year when I’ve been working so much I don’t see the sun shine. I decided to invest in one of those weird fancy energy lamps. I settled on the Verilux Compact Happy Light which was both inexpensive and still pretty if it didn’t do anything.

So far my experience has been positive. I feel like I have much more energy after 30 minutes sitting near the lamp. I wouldn’t recommend sitting in front of it for more than an hour as it makes you feel as if you drank like five cups of coffee (and possibly find it difficult to sleep, especially if used in the evening). Placebo or not, it’s working for me!

I’m so excited to be energized, and happy.

Photoset: Shit At My Grandparents’ House


My grandparents’ moved to Canada 30 something years ago and have lived in the same house ever since. Their home is filled with crazy trinkets. Some even have tags and packaging still attached. There is not a dull spot in their house which is void of colour or some form of craziness. They are the kind of people who have Christmas lights hung up all year round. There’s flowers on lamps (which is probably a fire hazard) and hidden birds everywhere. I decided with this wealth of strange things that I should capture some of it’s beauty in photos.
