My best friend and I ran away from our problems to a Warm, Sunny Place for a week, and here are some photos and a video from that time. This video is 50% artsy vaporwave montage, 50% shitpost, and is therefore the video (so far) that I’ve made that most accurately sums me up as a person.
cw: discussion of depression
Another piece of writing about my latest existential crisis. Video transcript after the cut.
A lil somethin’ somethin’ I’ve been lowkey working on all year. 2017 has been ROUGH but I’m so grateful to have seen so many wonderful places with so many wonderful people.
After a week in Toronto and a weekend in Ottawa, I took the train to Montréal, Québec, where I was staying with one of my best friends for a week. I didn’t do a ton of ~tourist~ stuff, since I’d been to the city before. I was also unfortunately getting hit with a lot of really terrible nightmares that were definitely getting to me. So I spent my time there relaxing, sampling some of St. Laurent’s many bars and ice creameries, and catching up and exploring with friends.
My life was going a little haywire, so, as per usual, I ran away from my problems. I took a 2.5 week trip to Toronto, Ottawa, Montréal, and Québec City. I hopped off the plane then took the train to the downtown core of my first stop, Toronto, wearing all the thick, warm layers I had packed with me for my late October trip to Eastern Canada. It was going to be cold, right? Everyone had told me to pack warm…

At the end of June, myself, my sister, and a friend of ours hopped in a car and drove down to LA for the 4th of July. Our friend, Sam, is doing an internship there for the summer, and a bunch of us met up in Los Feliz to share a lil summer adventure. On the way down, we stopped in Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco, and we saw big blue skies and Oregonian coastlines and Californian redwoods. It was gorgeous (although very sweaty), and here’s my proof.
After my dad died, my mom decided we should all go on a family vacation to somewhere hot and beautiful to make ourselves feel better, so in late May myself, my sister, my mother, my stepdad, my uncle, and our family friend Lindsay wound up in Veradero, Cuba. In classic Sarah fashion, it took me a month to post my travel vlog and photos, but hey, they’re finally here!
