A Tomorrow That Isn’t Promised.

It’s the little things that are big things,
that you’re throwing away with the hands of the clock.

We spend our lives waiting for the weekend, for retirement, for the alarm clock to ring. We wait for love to find us, for happiness to shine on us, for success to cling to our name. We’re waiting for a tomorrow that isn’t promised.

Your life is not your friends wedding, or an annual family vacation. It isn’t an anticipated payday or the joy of the Christmas season.  Your life is seconds that turn into minutes, months that turn into years.  

Your life is everything you’ll one day look back on.  The emotions you felt and the memories you made. It’s the little things that are big things, that you’re throwing away with the hands of the clock.

GoFundMe Update

Nothing starts a full Saturday of working on Young & Twenty like two more donations towards my GoFundMe Project! I would like to thank the new contributors.

For those who are unaware of my Project, I am a twenty-something looking to take my passion for writing to a larger scale and prove to myself and society, that ‘post grad students’ can make a difference in the world.

Bowzer Box [December Review]

product review


Last minute Christmas shopping for the dog-lover on your list? Subscription Boxes are the new ‘trend’ as they are the gift that keeps on giving.

I cannot believe it’s already December, as is it my puppy’s first Christmas! It’s such an exciting time so truthfully, I was full of anticipation to see this months Bowzer Box. Their themes and the products that go along with them are always perfect and never fail to impress me, month after month.

DSC_3125Box: Bowzer Box
Product :
1 box full of treats, toys and accessories for your canine family member.

Cost : $29/month, $78/quarter, $138/half-year,
plus $4.50 shipping per box.

Additional: This is a Canadian monthly subscription service.

Theme: This months theme was called, Happy “Paw”lidays  which included treats and toys involving the holiday season. My box was full of candy cane cookies, gingerbread man prints and snowflake shaped treats.

DSC_3113Holiday Edition Fruitable : Vanilla Snowflake Flavor : Unfortunately my dog was not a fan of these treats but I’m positive that reflects my dogs taste, not the product. It’s always great to receive full-sized bag of treats and the fact that these were shaped as snowflakes made them  a fun treat.

Bandana :  I’m in love with this cloth bandana and am so excited to try it out on my puppy Christmas morning. Its gingerbread men and pretzel print are incredibly adorable.

1 Roll of Poo Bags : You can never have too many poo bags!

Amelia – Stars & Canes Cookies : Lobster & Maple Flavour. Unless it’s been an off day, my puppy has been turning her nose to these cookies. Bowzer Box has included past cookies from ‘Amelia’ which were a success in my household so I hope she changes her mind. The stars and candy cane shapes are a perfect stocking stuffer for your canine family member.

Feelgood – Beef Trail Blazin’ Blitz : These dog treats came in a plastic stocking, making them another perfect stocking stuffer for the dogs we couldn’t dare leave out on Christmas morning. These treats were a success in my household.

It’s become so hard to take photos of my Bowzer Box‘s as my dog is on the floor, eagerly barking in hopes to play, eat and destroy everything within a day of getting it. As my dog is now 7 months old, I have to thank Bowzer Box for helping me use their service to find the things she likes and the things she hates.  Another great month!

The Start Of A Moment.

Our pasts won’t be right now because
right now is us and right now is perfect.

It’s the start of a good thing, the start of a love song, the start of a moment meant to last. Because after tonight the stars will dance a little different, and the waves will kiss a little softer and the sun will beam a little brighter. We’ll share yesterday’s that will change our tomorrow’s. We’ll tell secrets we can’t take back, make memories we can’t forget. Our pasts will be that time, or I remember when. They won’t be right now because right now is us and right now is perfect.

No Survivors.

Don’t settle for a life, confined within your worries.

We’re enslaved to the things we can’t control, that’s life. Our faults are the things we can change, and don’t. We go through life with such slow precaution in fear of losing what we have, despite not knowing what it is. Life takes prisoners but leaves no survivors so don’t settle for a life, confined within your worries. Don’t sacrifice control of your future for security in right now.

A Gloomy Day.

Not enough people appreciate the beauty in a gloomy day. The sky teases us for hours with raindrops and distant thunder. It’s a day of suspense, a beautiful build up. We carry on, living our lives beneath a chaotic mess and we live knowing the end is worth waiting for.

The darkest days have the quietest air, letting a person’s true self be revealed for there’s no better test then how someone weathers the storm.

Thunderstorms aren’t sadness just like happiness isn’t the sun. Just like people who leave the clouds in the hands of the sky see a different allure then those who hold the clouds on a string.
