The Mighty Oak
Tucked away on Vancouver's 18th & Columbia, The Mighty Oak is the perfect midweek hideaway. I'm overwhelmed with emails, appointments, and fatigued by Zoom. Who thought chatting to someone on Zoom could make you tired? I mean, here I am, walking ten steps from my bedroom to my dining room table, still in my pyjamas, opening my laptop, popping in and out of meetings, and complaining that I'm tired. What about the commuters? People who actually wake up, shower, leave the house, wait for a bus, go to the office, then bus home again. Aren't they tired?
Well, according to Healthline, Zoom Fatigue is in fact a real thing. Apparently, we have to work harder on Zoom. I'll let you look into that yourself since I don't want this post to be gloomy and god forbid, I don't want you to leave feeling fatigued. The world is depressing enough right now so let's escape.

I visited this neighbourhood grocery store and café this week to meet a friend for tea. I've passed by many times before, always curious, but somehow I've never ventured inside. It's always dark when I've wandered by on an evening stroll and it's always illuminated, glowing, looking charmingly enchanted from the sidewalk. It's inviting and warm, a special place.
