House on the hill

In the little house on the hill, the occupants all tread like ghosts, taking soft, delicate steps, as to not set off another explosion. Every room is filled with faded echoes of laughter and conversation, reminders of happier times. But there’s no laughter filling the little house now. Instead, there is mistrust and broken promises, […]

Charred

Last night, I went through some notebooks of mine from years and years ago, filled with literally hundreds of poems. I pulled out two to share. Here’s one: The mountains shine a glimmering pink as they are stained by the sunset. I stood under a pearlescent moon thinking of you. The frozen blanket that covered […]

Three Strangest Words – Wislawa Szymborska

As I speak the word future, the first syllable is already entering the past. As I speak the word silence, I destroy it. As I speak the word nothing, I create something not contained in any nothingness.

… Wow

Today I dropped off those other pictures to A’s house, and all night I have been in a shitty mood because I smashed my phone in my car door and it cracked, and I can’t afford another damn phone. When I was in the neighbourhood, I got really nostalgic about Sadie, as I always do, […]

The future of the world

Lately, I have been thinking about the “apocalypse,” or when the world will end. There have been many terrible storms lately here, inclement weather not usual for the time of the year (having to bring in fake snow in the winter to CANADA!?), things like that. And although I believe that it is due to […]

Excuse me while I rant

Quarter after twelve in the morning, up in six hours, and too frustrated to sleep. There isn’t even one or two things in particular keeping me up. It’s a culmination of being over-tired because my insomnia has been kicking my ass lately, feeling frustrated at life in general, and feeling particularly ornery because of the […]

Oh, I’m sorry, did I miss the memo?

I must have. I must have been out to lunch when this little tidbit was shared with Calgarians. Apparently though, if you have a BMW, you can be a complete asshole on the road. I’m not sure what it is, but whenever I’m on the major road in Calgary (the Deerfoot,) I consistently see BMW […]

WANT

Oh puppy… so damn cute. One of the best-looking little mutts I have seen on Kijiji in forever. Even though my birthday is a mere seven days away, my mom is resolute; no dogs. I know she would fall in love with this little guy… Oh well. M, this is where you come in. GET […]

Insomnia: 1, Ashley: 0

Alright, two in the morning and I can’t sleep at all. I synced up my Ipod, deleted all the double and triple songs I had on Itunes, I downloaded about a hundred songs and transferred them (Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Offspring, Blink 182, Eiffel 65, and NOFX, in case you were wondering. It’s 90’s night […]
