I’m Alyse. I’m a twenty two year old university student in Canada. Battling a multitude of mental illnesses, I’ve realized that coming to peace with myself will be a lifelong journey with no ultimate destination. This blog is essentially a database of everything that contributes to what makes me happy, and, subsequently, healthy. It’s a collection of my favourite recipes, products, crafts, music… really, my favourite everything!
I guess this blog is a bit of a selfish creation; when I feel stuck, it serves as my personal capsule of “feel good” moments – from a kick-ass recipe that I want to keep for later to the TV shows that had me laughing through an entire month.
Make yourself a cup of tea, settle in, and click around. I hope that my passion is able to reach you through your 13″ laptop screen. I hope you resonate with a post enough to try out one of my favourite recipes or to watch that movie that made it into 3 of my monthly favourites.
When you’re a run-down student just trying to make it through one 3 hour night lecture to the next, living with 7 roommates in a small, drafty house, and counting your pennies to figure out whether you should really indulge in that $6 latte you’ve thought about every time you walk past Starbuck’s, it’s hard to remind yourself that this is not your final destination. You don’t need to win the lottery and drop out of school to start living the life you want to live. You can start today. You can start now.
Create your own happiness.
