Hi, I’m effieboo, and I write In Limbo!

I created my website in May of 2009 for two reasons:

  1. To document my life, my passions and my projects on my quest for enlightenment, self-love and joy!
  2. To share my newly-found knowledge on the topics of health, school, and happiness with some beautiful and wonderful people. :)

I live in Montreal, Canada and am going to school for psychology. I’m currently at a crossroads when it comes to decisions about my future (aren’t we all!) but my passions include and are not limited to:

  • Writing this blog
  • Reading stories of all kinds
  • Photography, mostly of food, pets and my general surroundings..
  • Fashion: I love to dress myself. :) In bright colours.
  • Avocados
  • Used bookstores
  • Making music! I play the piano, guitar, and have had my bouts with flute and alto saxophone. I am particularly good at playing the tambourine. I can blow a nice G on the trumpet. I also sing (vaguely), mostly because I adore to sing, not because I’m particularly good.
  • Sandwiches of pretty much any variety
  • Cutting, gluing, colouring, drawing, using crayons. See also: acting like a small child.
  • Exercise in the form of non-competitive forms of yoga, swimming, jogging (on occasion) and step class.
  • Notebooks
  • Travelling
  • Cuddling with dogs and cats
  • Watching the Food Network
  • Writing letters


My lucky number is seven, I’m an Aries, a Five, and an ENFP. I’m an eldest child.

I adore fancy pens, eccentric hats and getting comments on my blog! I’m easy to please, am I not?

    Nice blog (which is to say, nice corporate product placement wrapped in what appears to be a blog).

      I’m not really sure what you mean by this, but I guess I’ll take the compliment! For the record, I don’t work for any company.

    I’ve just joined the WordPress blogging world, and I stumbled upon your blog once and absolutely LOVED it. Im a sophomore in College and I think you have a great blend of pictures and an interesting way to describe your stories/advice.
    Keep up the great work, I definitely look forward to your posts every week.

    Keep Posting. =]

    Hey. You’re doing a great job with your blog. I just started my more “public” one for similar reasons to yours…I like how you make yours pretty and fun and lighthearted without it being superficial. I think if I went to your school, we would be friends. :)

    By the way, I’m a Capricorn, an only child, and an INFP!

    Best of luck,

    Hey Effieboo,

    I was just trying to find your post on Things you wish you’d known before first year, but I can’t find it so I was wondering if you could send me the link to it or something?

    Also, thanks a lot for the “I’m Currently” idea, I really liked it and added it to my blog too if you don’t mind? I can take it off though if it’s weird or anything.
