I’ve been itching to write this blog post for a few days but one thing after another has happened, in a good way :). I’ve smartened up a bit and started to write everything down on one of my dry erase boards so I can remember more content for you guys to catch up on.
On and off I think about this one question when ever I think about my blog… ‘do I really want people to read about my entire life?’ When it comes down to it I guess I now look at it more of an outlook of expression; I don’t expect people to read my blog but if they do awesome, if they learn something even better… if no one reads it I just get to re-experience what I did earlier in the week or month and even one day dwell back on it. I kind of look at it in a sense where if you’re grieving or dealing with “drama” expressing it to a friend or trusted person helps (immensely), stress drops and you feel that little bit better and sometimes feel completely better. If negatives can shed away through expressing, the good might just remind you of the good times and just make you that much happier.
I’ve been discussing with a few friends recently that I don’t regret anything I’ve done… even the dumb stuff for if I hadn’t done it I wouldn’t be in the exact place I am today, the consequences (good or bad) have made me who I am today. Think of it this way: you can’t go back and change anything, just go from where you are… This is such a cliché term but it stuck for a reason “Live in the now”.
Now for the updates:
I purchased some perogies which I haven’t had in ages and that I love so much and they remind me of an amazing friend (Natalie… Miss you!). Here’s the dilemma I was facing though. I didn’t have sour cream, actually let’s back up a second I actually wanted to make pancakes but had no milk and didn’t want to go to the store so I said ‘hey I have perogies!’ and that’s where I ran into the sour cream issue. I was so hungry and was too lazy to go to the groceries store but I used the excuse I needed to save gas haha. I got my thinking cap out and figured let’s try Dijon Mustard, well it worked despite being a little spicy it was worth the substitute until I got SC the next day. (apparently my browser says perogies is spelt wrong but the package says that’s the correct way, and not as the computer suggests “perigees”… *right-click, add to dictionary* haha)
Here’s some big new… I finally got the job at The Mobile Shop woohoo. Training has been going well apparently I learn quickly although I did used to work for WIND Mobile just not for sales. The people I work with are pretty darn awesome and the hours are good, so’s the commission. Soh if anyone is looking for a new phone anywhere in Canada let me know I’ll hook you up with the right deal and plan; bonus you supply me with commission and make me happy.
I recently registered my business website with an official link instead of just a sub-domain so now I’m “official” (www.innerpaths.ca). Once I bring in some more cash from work and pay off some bills I’ll be registering my blog as well maybe along the lines of http://www.WalkofLife.ca … thoughts?
One of my Hostel-mates asked if I could help him clear up some space on his Macbook and make it run faster, so it lit a fire under my butt to do some cleaning on my own and I was able to clear wait for it… 200 Gigs of duplicate songs; Holy moly. I guess that’s 4 years of accumulated songs, now I have so much more room for movies and music. As for Brent’s Mac he has to upgrade his OS (operating system) before I can fix anything in-depth, he’s running a very old version, for all you Window’s users it’s like he’s using Windows XP that hasn’t been cleaned in years.
The other night John and Tabitha (former Hostel-Mates) stopped by for a bonfire with Rye and Brent and myself… it was a good gathering as usual we got a little rowdy but nothing too out of control of course. It’s good to have these little reunions, it’s really brings back memories.
Recently I was able to Skype with two awesome people one of them being Maeve my fav. Irish celeb from Haiti, boy do I miss her and her antics it was nice to catch up with a good friend and talk about our futures (remember when you tried to shove a Teddy in my arms while I was sleep and take a picture… not impressed -_- love ya ). The other person was Lola who is one of my most favouritest people in the world. There’s just something about my gipsy friend I love so much, she’s so bubbly and awesome. We’ve kinda of decided that our Skype “dates” need to happen more often.
This past weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving which I spent “alone” this year, which is fine since most holidays to me I just consider another day on the calendar. As usual my neighbours Brent and Rye manage to be awesome and gave me a bunch of their great dinner of: Turkey, stuffing, carrots, yams, cranberries etc… I don’t have a microwave which is good, it keeps me from buying those microwave dinners of death. I tossed the leftovers into a frying pan with butter and a cover, turned the stove on low heat and within a few minutes Voila I had a warmed up meal!
A good friend of mine held on to a wicked cool crystal I ordered while I was in Haiti. I got it back recently and couldn’t think of a better person to have held it for me (thanks Christina 😉 ). Originally it was on a bracelet she had made me but it wasn’t really practical (I was the one who asked to have it on the bracelet), so I kept the bracelet which is rad by the way. Dayton one of my Hostel-mates does wire wrapping and I had him wrap it, and it came out pretty cool… thanks Dayton.
So the other day I had to wake up early for work and what did I see on the grass… FROST! I am so not looking forward to the cold, don’t forget I spent the winter in Haiti last year and this cold is really killin’ me haha. Later in the day I had collected some chestnuts from the yard since our massive tree drops at least 20 a day, later I decided to try and roast a few… Well they didn’t taste very good. Maybe I didn’t roast them right but I followed all the instructions and video’s online and it looked correct, oh well I guess my pallet isn’t compatible. (oh yeah one exploded in the oven because I didn’t X it big enough)
Almost done this blog I swear thanks for the patients. I think this is some of the biggest news other than the job… I got a bed, a real one yes! I’ve been sleeping on a futon for 3 months with an already bad back from the army and two car accidents (not at fault). It is like heaven, I honestly rolled around on it giggling for a good ten minutes… Life is grand :).
Overall life is fantastic as I just stated, things are going great and I can’t help but yell how happy I am most days… in the confines of my Studio Suite or my car. Oh yeah I’ve also started talking to a girl no details yet because it’s not super serious but it’s looking good.
I took a bit of a break from writing this post to hang out with the Hostel-mates and sure enough Brent offers me some leftover stew from Thanksgiving (Their pot was massive and filled). I brought a bunch home and some of it was my snack tonight. As a few of us were chatting earlier I also noticed how thankful I was for things and people in the blog today… maybe I just caught everyone’s thankfulness from Facebook or just from the season, but Thanks every everyone for being a part of my life it’s really made who I am one way or another.
