About Me

Bienvenue! Welcome to my blog! My name is Kaylie Voutier. I live in beautiful Sudbury which is the largest city in Northern Ontario, Canada. I was born there, grew up there, and still live there. I love living in Sudbury and enjoy discovering new and interesting things in and around my city. I am a summer of '93 child, so I'm 24 years old. But I never really know if my age actually properly fits me and I don't think I ever will. I am not childish but I'm not enough of an adult either, even though I sometimes feel older than I really am. I like to think of myself as an old soul who is forever young at heart.

The most important things to me in life are my family, my friends, and my pets. I love my parents and my brother and I am so glad that I am friends with all of them. We're a pretty fun family and we share similar interests. My current pets include a golden retriever named Finnlegh, a tuxedo cat named Pingu, a (possibly part-lionhead) rabbit named Geronimo, a cockatiel named Sundo, and a budgie named Nasa. Having pets is nice because they remind me to see the world in a different way and they encourage me to slow down and enjoy the little things in life.

I have a B.A. in English Literature with a minor in French (as a second language). I also have my bilingualism certificate for French as a second language. I completed all of this when I graduated in 2015. I am currently in a Library and Information Technician college program through online distance education. I am happy to continue going to school but I also believe that we learn a lot outside of school. I believe in lifelong learning and I love learning new things and pursuing my interests outside of traditional educational settings. Sometimes I actually learn better outside of traditional classrooms. That's one of the reasons why I'm excited that I am pursuing my education through online distance education. I am also a part of a local community concert band as one of their flutists. I have been playing flute since I was ten years old and I loved playing in concert band while in high school. I am now dealing with the challenge of anxiety while playing in a band again but it is something that I want to do again and so I am pushing through and taking steps to reach my goal of playing in the band without my anxiety interfering as much as it is now.

This blog is full of my stories, observations, and thoughts. The main categories that I blog about are positivity, creativity, health, nature, and learning. I believe in creating and writing this blog the way that I want since I enjoy dancing to the beat of my own drum and I want it to reflect me and not reflect what is simply popular at the time. This blog is all about exploring my passions and figuring out exactly who I am and what I love in life. Come forth and enter this strange world that I call my life and discover all of the paths that I wander along to figure out where I belong. Look through my eyes and discover the way I see the world. Open your mind and heart to something new. I'm happy to have you here!
