Hi, I’m Annie, a 27 year old French and Irish girl living in Montreal, trying to juggle Adulting, Traveling, Crossfitting and mostly Eating.
I was born and raised in France but moved to Montreal in October 2015 and it has been a roller coaster ever since. But who wants an easy life right? In those 2 years I started my first proper job, fell in love with Crossfit, learnt to live alone and make friends in a new country and of course stumbled and made many mistakes in the process. Last but not least I feel like I should mention as well that in addition to all of that I am in a “not so long distance relationship” with my boyfriend whom I’ve been together with for almost 4 years. But that is a long story for another day.
Bottom line: I am completely and utterly useless at adulting and I need help. Still thinking I’m exaggerating? You’re talking to the girl who argued for a full minute she could take care of herself while proving herself wrong by walking into a hole literally 2 seconds later.
I could have just kept on bothering my boyfriend but apparently people get bored when you go on and on about yourself too much. Who knew?! Not wanting to end up forever alone I decided instead to create a space that allowed me to chat as much as I liked about my laughable attempts at being a grown-up interspersed between way too enthusiastic posts about Traveling, Crossfit and of course, Food.
So if you feel like your life is messy, that you don’t know what the hell you’re doing half of the time and that you can’t even keep a cactus alive then this place is for you. And if you do have it all together and are successful at being a grown-up, well hopefully you’ll at least get a good laugh out of my adventures (and maybe even share some tips!).
