LOLOL, guess who didn’t do a final wrapup for their No Spend April challenge?
Classic Erin. New blog series = the flimsiest of plans.
Short version = despite spending an inordinate amount of savings on new couches/chairs, No Spend April went pretty well. I didn’t continue it into May, but I am certainly more mindful of the spending and I am planning (as I do every summer) to have a Frugal!Summer. Maybe this summer it will actually work?
Plus the couches and chairs have now arrived and my living room looking freakin’ wicked stunning. (Yes. I quoted Bend and Snap from Legally Blonde. This is a theatre blog, sort of. I am very very cool. Just the coolest.)
Anyway. I love recommitments to projects I will probably not complete, so here I am again. Recommitting to a vague project that I will probably not complete. This project being “writing things on a blog that maybe people want to read”.
Things like… Stampede wrecks dating apps. It just rips them up and trods them underfoot like so many horse droppings from the many horse related activities of these 10 days.
I’m not anti-Stampede, like so many people I know. I get that ten day drunkfest side of it is inherently gross and that it, like all things in the world, is not for all people. (For the record, I’m sure that there are people in every city that has a major event that lots of tourists flock to that hate that event. I know this is not unique to Calgary.) However, I like weird food, people watching and have a couple good Stampede related memories every year… I really am not anti-Stampede. But being mildly single and mildly interested in dating this year?
OOF, Stampede just wrecks dating apps. Can we make a city-wide Stampede only ordinance that as soon as you pass our borders, you have to update your profile to indicate that you’re just here to drink overpriced beers and hook up with girls? All these profiles with nothing in them is making it nigh impossible to tell the Stampede bros apart from the normal bros. I think I’m on hiatus, ya’ll.
Come ON, Stampede!
And that is my rant for today. Love it.
On an actual important note… what kind of content do ya’ll want to see on here? Because otherwise it’s just going to be all meaningless rants like this one all the time. Which is fun for me. And maybe only me. What do you want from me?!
