    @ktfran I was trying to get chambray, and they kept selling out! Also why I ended up with the pajama striped style. I am too nervous to do any of the bright ones, but have been eyeing the Myrrh ones. They have a sale on the Canadian site, so resisting for now!

    @ktfran I have two pairs of those as well! I got mine in black and white with blue strips (although now they just look like pajama pants haha) I also ordered a couple pairs of their linen shorts. I was always wearing jean shorts and they are so gross in the humid weather here in the PNW/BC. So linen has been a great addition to my summer wadrobe

    Oh man the tiny holes at the bottom of the shirt. I have those in a lot of my shirts. I was so frustrated as I don’t wash them with jeans ever, and so can only assume the same issue, just rubbing/friction.

    I have also managed to bleach some of my shirts from Old Navy, the colors have run on two of my shirts. I don’t use bleach though! Just unscented laundry liquid detergent. So annoying. Have seen it as well on my bed sheets, which may be more associated with heat burns from the dryer. Regardless, ruined.

    In Canada, and the west coast here, we are getting some short term phasing plans to ‘get back to normal’ (whatever that means nowadays). We plan to be fully opened if a certain percentage of the population in BC gets their first dose, and if cases and hospitalizations continue to decline (we have a 4 phase step that would realistically open completely for Sept 1st most of our previously restricted/closed accessibilities).

    As much as I am excited, there is nothing in that phased step plan for 2nd/full vaccination percentage, which worries me. Are we just not giving people an incentive to get a second dose? At 80% protection or so (depending on what you received) you may feel inclined to just be happy with the first and not get the second, especially if just having a first dose means all these things open up again.

    A doctor in Alberta has chastised the Alberta Premier for their phased approach which is timed for Canada Day and the Calgary Stampede (a massive cowboy event that is held). The aptly timed phasing plan seems to be appealing to those who want to get back to business and not actually considering a longer stretch of phasing to properly reach those numbers and appropriate numbers to open again.

    I also worry that we won’t reach the 70% because again, we have so many people enjoying the benefits of what 60-65% dosage in BC gets us with one vaccination, and just not pushing for the higher percentage to truly protect and give ourselves a shield against the min dosage.

    We have reduced the timespan between dosages to now 8 weeks (was 16 weeks before) so many people are being contacted in the older age categories to get their 2nd, I should be fully vaccinated by end of Aug with my first dose this weekend. But man, I hate that the openings are based around getting ourselves a summer, and not getting a healthy summer.

    I have two roommates as well, we are older though and one is well versed in the science field and also has bad asthma so is very cautious. We all agreed from the get go in November when we went into heavier restrictions that we wouldn’t have people over, even when I was seeing a guy for a couple months (he lived with his family) I agreed not to see him.

    This is not about logic at this point, this is about immaturity and her wanting her needs met. These trump all the logic and facts you can bring to her.

    It would be in your best interest to talk to your other roommate and hopefully get them on your side. As much as you can defend yourself the logic being played right now is if it meets their needs it trumps your concerns/logic, and if you are on your own with no additional support from your roommate it is also trumping your concerns. If you and your other roommate can band together and confront her more seriously, with two people in retaliation of her really careless actions she will be less likely to break the rules.

    This is not normal adult logic, but you aren’t dealing with that right now. You have a very selfish roommate who is trying to get her way for her needs and you need to address it the same way unfortunately.

    @hfantods I am optimistic by next fall things will be good to go. So am planning for it. I will also be back to working full time so my ability to take time off and not really interrupt anything won’t be an issue either.

    For the size, not sure. I don’t know if they plan to keep it small due to COVID. But my cousin is half Greek so the weddings for my cousins/her siblings were usually quite large. I should really ask and see how things are going hah

    Never been to Ancaster Mills before, but been around the Hamilton area and love the falls and landscape there, such a pretty place (if you ignore the industry on the water hah)

    @hfantods, exciting!! That’s a lot of work done so far 🙂

    My cousin also got engaged within the last year and she has hers planned for next fall, fingers crossed it actually is possible with all this madness. She ended up booking at the Ancaster Mill in Hamilton, super gorgeous venue.

    My friend sent me this It is a professor that Dr Fauci has referenced a few times now They have two other videos of him answering questions regarding COVID and the vaccines.

    He is a prof of Immunology. If you guys are on the up and up and this is old news, my bad 😛 With grad school I feel like I am a tad behind on high profile people with experts circulating through N America right now.

    I ended up unfollowing someone on my IG last night. I don’t know them personally but was following as we were both into endurance training and was following her workouts/races when we lived in the same city area a couple years ago. Unfortunately since COVID she has repeatedly shared stories that are directly from various Trump social media, or just general wack job posts. Last nights was her criticizing us not spending more money on poverty/hunger issues over COVID, because apparently COVID is a rich person disease. I just had it after that, among the others she posted that day in similar themes. I had called her out a number of times for these but she always had some reason here or there, but the ignorance was just appalling. My feed is now a little cleaner.

    Maybe I am old school, but dating exclusively and being someones GF/BF are not the same in my eyes. You can date exclusively without putting labels on things. Also, maybe old school, but labelling and being someones BF/GF after 4 weeks of dating seems…fast.

    Reading your OP and the subsequent messages and responses to everyone it seems there was a lot of over thinking on your end. I text weekly with guys I start dating, but usually to book a next date or confirm things. Rarely do I get to the point one month in that daily texts are expected. That just seems like too much too fast.

    Next time, take things slow. Remind yourself there is time and plenty of it right now to know someone. Relationships are not built in a day. Also, if there is a lack of reciprocation of messaging and or equal effort put forth by a person you are dating, they are most likely not that into you.

    Happy to hear of the vaccinations happening 😀

    We recently had some restrictions eased, we can now have social gatherings outside, however it it limited to 10 people and those people must be your entire bubble until things get better or relaxed more. Still no indoor gatherings etc. But at least I can extend my social bubble a bit more for the summer.

    Recalling my visit to NYC two years ago around April, I imagine there are some very spring like conditions coming around the east coast right now. We have full cherry blossoms, lots of crocuses and warmer weather here in BC. Gotta see the light where it is these days 🙂

      @ktfran
      So sorry for your loss 🙁 Hope you can al celebrate her life in some way considering the circumstances.

      I am in BC and they announced they are into opening the vaccinations for older folks (not just those who are critical). According to a news article there were a million people on the lines when they opened (via phone), but barely 100,000 people actually fall under the age group range for the province. SO there are people calling outside the age range and or multiple people calling for one person to secure an appointment.

      I am turning 30 this year and will be eligible for my first in August.
