home. [December 01 2007 . 4:28pm]
I've spent the last 3.5 weeks touring around New Brunswick with a large group of incredible twenty-somethings, positive and fun, and full of adventure. Work, it's technically called, but the work part consisted of talking to high school students for 4 hours a day as they passed by our booths, assisting them with all of their post-secondary dreams. The rest was filled with dancing and rollercoasters and german food and new friends. Most excellent.

Home now, and it's a bittersweet sort of thing. My bed! My roommates! My own schedule! Dimitri's chicken souvlaki! The gym! Those things are all quite lovely. But I kind of feel like I've just left summer camp.

It's almost holiday-time. I can feel it in my heart. ee!

Other new things:

01. I saw feist! she was beautiful.
02. I learned the dance to MJ's "thriller".
03. I like schnitzel.
04. 'pumpkin soup' by kate nash.

1. I've come to realize that, my ex: served a very important role in my life.

5. I've come to realize that, I lost: my bitterness.
6. I've come to realize that, I dislike it when: I have to wait.
7. I've come to realize that, marriage: is something that I actually think I want someday. More in the sense of 'family' than in 'romance'.
9. I've come to realize that, I'll always be: awkward.
10. I've come to realize that, I have a crush on: one person at a time. my heart is the sort that wants to give itself entirely, so giving bits and pieces to numerous people just doesn't work for me.
11. I've come to realize that, the last time I truly cried was: about 2 months ago, but even that wasn't a big cry.
12. I've come to realize that, my cell phone is: amusing. I'm not a cell phone girl.
13. I've come to realize that, when I wake up in the morning: I never quite feel rested.

19. I've come to realize that, tonight I will: potentially eat chips and pack my bag for going on the road this week.
20. I've come to realize that, tomorrow I will: go buy juice boxes and diet pepsi, load up my car and drive to Cambellton.
21. I've come to realize that, my best friend: is amazingly diverse and intelligent and the most loyal, loving person I could hope to have in my life. She is also much too far away.
22. I've come to realize that, love is: something I'm capable of, now.
23. I've come to realize that, my life right now: is wonderful in many ways, but I feel ready for a new step.
24. I've come to realize that, right now: I'm kind of hungry, and kind of hot.
25. I've come to realize that, I will never: ... I don't think I have an answer to this. Never doesn't feel like something I can commit to.

strange. [September 24 2007 . 11:13pm]
Life is so weird.

I keep trying to type but I can't get much beyond that. Year twenty-five has been the biggest, strangest, most transformative year of my life.

I don't know what to tell you, so maybe I'll just leave it at weird.

Things I must do:

01 drink water! at least 2 liters a day
02 eat breakfast
03 moisturize
04 take multi-vitamins
05 eat lots of vegetables
06 eat less salt
07 limit diet pepsi to 1-2 cans a day
08 buy clothes that are not black

This is mostly just for myself. The dark puffy circles under my eyes and my frequent muscle spasms lead me to believe my insides are dying. I think I might actually make an effort this time.

Boy you better make her raspberry swirl. [August 14 2007 . 9:43pm]
I'd like to smell and taste completely like a raspberry. This has become my goal.

I've always been a raspberry girl. Raspberry lipgloss and scweppes raspberry gingerale. Raspberry jam and raspberry smoothies. Raspberries. I love them.

And then I smelled the best bodywash I've ever smelled. Raspberry. For $13 a bottle. That's expensive soap. But the smell was. so. good. I haven't bought it yet, but I will.

And I thought: rapsberry bodywash makes for raspberry smelling skin and raspberry ligloss makes for raspberry lips and raspberry gum for a raspberry mouth and then all I'd really need is raspberry shampoo and I would be set.

When I grow up, I'd like to be a raspberry.

Songs for dancing. [July 08 2007 . 6:25pm]
We're having a party.

I need your favorite songs for dancing, please.

Lots of them. The more the better!

I have a feeling that the next three months are going to be hugely, drastically transformative.

There is potential - actual potential - for so many things right now.

I am a student intern at ANBL, with hopes of landing a contract position, once my month of unpaid work is done. I like seeing "marketing assistant" next to my name. I like having an office and my own phone number and official government e-mail address. I like the people, and the work. I like putting on skirts and pumps and blouses each morning. On the BRINK of having a career, but no one is able to confirm that this is a possibility. All I know is that it feels right.

And there are boy things... that could potentially lead to... bigger boy things.

And our lease is winding down, three little months to go. This summer will be fun, indeed, but in 3 months I will likely be living all by myself, in my own one-bedroom (modern, mouse-free) apartment. The thought of it is scary and wonderful and sad and exciting.

I've been riding the sad wave for the last few days: sister Andreas left me forever, moved to Nova Scotia and we will only potentially be roommates again when we are 90 year old widows. I cried, a-plenty. But all will be okay.

Depsite sadness, good things are happening. A scholarship, a job interview, an excellent work practicum nailed down. Two more shifts to get through at the gym, then I'm free. I decided to join another gym with my free time, partially as revenge on my gym for not being nice to me. Double benefits there: revenge, and fitness. YES. way, way overdue. (both).

I cannot write - well, or properly - tonight. So this will be all. Heading to the couch, for some tv and sleep.

This was a truly lovely day.

Every once in a while, a day comes along that moves slowly, but in the best of ways. Not once do you say "where as the time gone?" or "it's 5 o'clock already?" - but it's because the day is wonderful, and for some reason, life is allowing you to experience it.

A day spent with my sister, that began at the market on the most gorgeously sunny morning we've had yet. Caught lunch there, then off to explore downtown for a little while. Bought a summer dress, the kind of dress I'll pull on when days are too hot for clothes, and a top reconstructed from a slip and a silk scarf. Popped into the urban almanac and bought our Grammie a birthday gift. Home for a brief rest, and a load of laundry, then out to dinner courtesy of a gift certificate.

Stopped into the grocery store, then looking down at our armload we noticed how ridiculous our purchases were: matching pink pajama pants, marshmallow cones, gummie candy, and cherry koolaid. Rented videos & then home to watch, in our matching pink pajamas.

Tomorrow is an antique sale and another sunny day.

And it hurts my heart to know that in one week, my sister will be gone, and we'll never live together again.

I don't really know what to say other than I've been having insane amounts of fun. There are hints that a cold is coming on but there is so much dancing fun to be had this week that I can't let it get me. Next week, maybe. But for this week, it's ghetto water jugs full-o-booze and bootyshakin in my living room. Also: INDIE POP NIGHT. yesss.

Report card for life. [February 21 2007 . 1:07pm]
Today I caught the slightest little glimpse of spring and it has done wonders for my heart. Yes, there are still 10 foot high snow banks, but the sun is warm and there are water trickles across the sidewalks where the snow is melting away.

My sister and I stood in our kitchen last night and rated our lives. There were many factors, all that made it quite clear our lives aren't where they should be, or where we would like them to be.

school: A
social: B-
fitness: C
nutrition: F
general appearance: B
housekeeping: F

If I don't do something about my nutrition status, I will surely die. And sadly, I don't think I'm joking about that.

Hoping for a weekend as happy as last.

I am afraid to go to sleep in case I wake up barfing.

because that tends to be the trend of like EVERYONE around me.

barf barf everywhere. please don't let it get meeee.

in other news, I had the best weekend of all time. Saturday owns my life, so much dancing fun. The kind of drunken crazy rowdiness that I had been craving - uninhibited, silly. There are so many moments, but it's all a big blur of homos in 80's garb and fanny packs filled with pink peppermints and everyone kissing everyone square on the lips.

Sleep time, no barfing please.

Overwhelmed by the unknown. Where to live, what to do. People, places, jobs, this city, that city, this apartment, that apartment, money money money, lease lease lease.

In real words, to make sense to you, my sister is moving in May and thus, we lose a roommate. I was going to take this opportunity to move out on my own, mostly because I wasn't particularly keen on the idea of someone random moving in to take her place. Living with a stranger isn't really my scene. That, and I'm just about done with this big cold scary house.

But grumpy landlords make it difficult to just, you know, move.

So, if I stay in this apartment until August 31st as originally planned, it will:

a. be easier.
b. allow me to graduate from school and figure out life plans (see: city, apartment, job)
c. allow me to live in a prime downtown location for summer fun.
d. ensure that we get our damage deposit back.

However, staying in the apartment will also mean:

a. living in this big scary house for six more months.
b. potentially living with someone totally random for 4 of those months.

Effing eff. I just want this all figured out. It hurts my head.

I don't know, it's been cold. So effing cold. I got frostbite last week. My ears tingled and burned and itched for a couple of days and instead of buying a hat like a normal person, I wrap my scarf around my head and look like a fool.

Been a bit of a crank, just tired, and impatient. Add: lazy & unhealthy, perhaps slightly gross. Lots of deep fried food, no hydrating liquids, lots of candy, and zero vitamins. Feel slightly like my insides are dying.

I feel the need to set inhibitions aside and have some fun. I feel like I've become more introverted. Reserved. I don't even dance like I used to. And apparently, I don't use proper sentences like I used to, either.

SLEEP. must.
