New Office Tour (I'm in France!)


Hellooo I have some big news! I'm in France! Brittany, to be specific!

I'm here visiting my partner after a very long and terrible 20 months apart. It was always the plan for me to try and get a visa to move here, at least temporarily, but we decided that since we've been apart for soooo long, that we would jump the gun a little bit and spend a solid three months together.

So I've been in the Brittany region of France since the end of July!

It's been a pretty significant struggle to get accustomed to all the changes. After spending 20 pandemic months alone in my Montreal apartment and barely seeing anyone, to moving to rural France to live with a professional bagpiper 😂  - you can imagine everything I had to adjust to!

The hardest part for me was creating a comfortable office space for myself. Since I work from home, having a space where I feel good about working, where I can record TikToks, and where I can rest when I need to was a top priority.

It took a few weeks to acquire all the necessary bits and bobs but I'm finally ready to give you a little office tour!
