Summer in Calgary

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share some of the pictures I took when I was home in Calgary this summer.  I hope you enjoy them, especially my favorite, the beautiful blue Alberta skies.

Day 15: Your Zodiac Sign

My zodiac sign is Cancer, since my birthday is at the end of June. I’d say I match the stereotypical descriptions and traits of my zodiac sign very closely.

Cancers are usually said to be very home and family oriented, which is accurate for me. I care deeply about my family and friends, and I’m always looking out for their wellbeing. I tend to be a very maternal person as well, and I’m definitely looking forward to the day when I own my own house and have a family.

Another stereotypical Cancer trait is that they’re emotional and very sensitive. I definitely am both, and I’m very empathetic as well. That being said, often this trait is presented as a negative thing. While I believe that it can hinder progress sometimes, being able to understand and express emotions can give you a richer understanding of the world.

Career wise, Cancers are said to be strong-willed and good with money. I’m definitely rather stubborn on some issues, but I don’t think I’m the best with money that I could be. However, I do have a lot of the intuition and creativity that Cancers typically have, which has definitely helped me to a degree with work.

When it comes to love, the main things Cancers worry about are trust and loyalty. Both do matter a lot to me, since I will only consider dating someone if I know their intentions are good and that they’re trustworthy. I’m also a stereotypical Cancer romance wise due to the fact that I’m very traditional in what I expect from a partner or a date.

So, if you ever need an example of a stereotypical Cancer woman, look no further than this blog. However, while I enjoy horoscopes and zodiac signs, I don’t let them dictate my life choices, which I encourage you guys to do as well.

What are your zodiac signs, and are you anything like them? Let me know down below!

Day 9: Something That You Miss

This one is pretty easy: I miss home.

I haven’t been back home to Alberta for over four months now, and I definitely miss it a lot every now and then. I mostly miss my family and friends on that side of the country, since that’s where most of them live. It’s definitely been a letdown not to be able to go home for some birthdays and graduations as well.

I also miss the prairies in general. Nova Scotia is lovely, and I’m fond of where I live currently, but it’s not quite the same. I miss going for long drives and seeing all the canola fields. Plus the mountains here have nothing on the Rockies, although the Atlantic ocean does bring a bit of a challenge to Lake Louise.

On the upside, I’m happy with the job I’ve taken out here for the summer, and the fact that I have my own place. Plus, I’ll be popping back to Alberta later in the summer for a quick visit before my fourth year of university starts, which should cure me of all homesickness.

What do are you guys missing right now? Let me know down below!
