Sorry - read this while in a hurry and forgot to answer it! 

Yes and no. Toronto is my #1 girl, but obviously travelling is 400% more fun than real life. It’s easier, it’s less stressful, and it’s far more interesting than being at home and looking for a job (or working!) So that’s my immediate reaction, that travelling is fucking brilliant and so much fun and just the most incredible eye-opening and perspective-widening experience and I could do it forever. 

At the same time, I will admit that I was running out of steam by the end of the month. I was tired. On one of my last nights in Europe I was up dancing on a stage in Barcelona at 4am intoxicated out of my mind on several levels and having a great time but also thinking “man do clubs ever close in this city or what.” But the next night I was also the girl trying to convince the others to go out because “you can sleep when you’re dead” so idk. 

I’ve been sleeping for a good 10 hours every night since getting back home. Initially it was jetlag and now I think I’m just being lazy because I currently don’t have a job to get up for, but I also think I’m just recovering. Europe was a beautiful cycle of partying until the early hours of the morning, sleeping until checkout (mercifully at 11am in most hostels) and then walking around sightseeing all day. Rinse and repeat for a month. And it’s fine because it’s exciting and new and everything is beautiful and interesting so who needs more than 6 hours of drunken sleep but eventually it catches up with you man. I’m still discovering bruises on my body and new friend requests in my inbox. 

Travelling is incredible but I guess now it’s time to save the money to do it again next year, so yeah I’m glad to be home. At least hockey season is back.

“We never say that all men deserve to feel beautiful. We never say that each man is beautiful in his own way. We don’t have huge campaigns aimed at young boys trying to convince them that they’re attractive, probably because we very rarely correlate a man’s worth with his appearance. The problem is that a woman’s value in this world is still very much attached to her appearance, and telling her that she should or deserves to feel beautiful does more to promote that than negate it. Telling women that they “deserve” to feel pretty plays right in to the idea that prettiness should be important to them. And having books and movies aimed at young women where every female protagonist turns out to be beautiful (whereas many of the antagonists are described in much less flattering terms) reinforces the message that beauty has some kind of morality attached to it, and that all heroines are somehow pretty.” — You Don’t Have To Be Pretty – On YA Fiction And Beauty As A Priority | The Belle Jar (via brutereason)
