I'm somewhat nervous because you hear so many bad things about Mexico, but you know how that is...We're spending a few days in Mexico City, then to Tlaxcala then to Minatitlan then Coatzcoalcos, I hope the spelling is right, Spanish is harder than I thought it was. My mom took lessons while I was in Europe, and we're eating Chilean food tomorrow night with her class. My mom and I are bringing a suitcase full of clothes to donate to our friends charity. Im going to try and find the Lonely Planet guide to Mexico, because the German one was AWESOME. I also saw some beautiful journals at Chapters that I wouldn't mind getting because mine is almost finished.
No one is buying our house because no one has the money, nor do they have the invisible money. Lots of things are cheaper now, especially gas, but we don't have a car right now (we sent it to car heaven) so it doesnt matter. Taking the TTC everywhere CAN be frustrating, but it's good exercise :D
I got this book from the library about French Diets, and it makes so much sense, you dont have to diet if you eat REAL FOOD, and you take your time enjoying it. Kind of ironic after all we're shown on TV. I'm reading alot again, which is good, Ive got books in different rooms of the house, and I found an Isabel Allende book I might bring on the trip.
THINGS I WANT TO DO IN MEXICO:
1. ride a horse
2. climb a pyramid
3. take a picture wearing a sombrero
4. try local food
5. go to the beach
It's getting cold and it might snow all this week, I can't wait to go to MEHICO!
Oh and Im calling it MEXIMAS!

Hurray is all I'll say at the moment.
Theres a For Sale sign outside my house. Im nervous, but I feel good about this. Also my cat doesnt seem to recognize me anymore, or shes just mad that I left her for 106 days. The plane food was so delicious, I had Indian Curry and it was...incredible.Im going over to my bfs to watch Wall-E :D I rather behind on movies now, but Ive got to shower first because I smell like a sasquatch.
And I rarely swear.

Only two weekS until Im back home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Im loving it here and Ich liebe Deutschland, tho I wished to see moooore. That means Ill be back ;) Ill probably see Bavaria and such if I do.
BUT Im getting homesick now, so I get what I have to do done and go hope happy...
Ive got alot of things to face when I get back:
1. Find a job
Chika Chika yeaaaahhh - Im thinking Queen st. West? why not!
2. Apply to Uni
I think Ive decided oooonnnn University of Toronto. My bff is giving me the book of courses when I get back, as we devour giant ice cream topped waffles at Demetres (:, and I'll pick something..I'll take it like...high school, and just pick what I like. Hopefully it'll guide me into the right direction. I dont know if I want to take Linguistics, but that's not a bad idea....
3. Pack up cuz we're moving!!!
That's right! Im actually terrified, Ive never REALLY moved and I love my house sooo much. But change is good...right? I just dont want a crappy shack inbetween a gas station and a supermarket....LOL tho I will be getting my own place in a few years...I can start early!
But I dont think we're moving for a few months.......
4. MEXIMAS (im so clever)
My mom and I are going to Mehico for Navidad, I hope thats xmas in spanish... Im reaaally excited because Ive never been, and I just read 'On the Road' by Jack Kerouac, tho that shouldnt influence my expectations at all at all at all haha AND my parents used to live in Mexico together, FTW??? Tho I am upset that Im leaving so soon again once I get back, I am excited. And the friends we're staying with seem fun and we're bringing a bunch of stuff to donate to their charity...we'll see what happens, as usual.
Wish me Luck xxox
Un beso mucho caliente!

Everythings good here, I got to go to Lippstadt a few times, and hopefully Ill see Munster and Cologne aswell. This weekend Im thinking about Soest or Paderborn.
Also, I'm hoping my cellphone works in Canada, it was a gift from my moms friend and its triband...Id just need a new Sim card I think. American Dad is on, in German though, so Im not really watching...last thing: As soooon as Im back, Im spending an entire day with my bf!!!!!!!!, then Ill be JOB HUNTING!!!!!, Queen st. west would be fabulous, and Ive already applied to Jacobs, whom I love, basically I just want more clothes...cheaply.
I did something bad once...I bought a dress for a party, wore it, probably sweat in it too, then returned it because I didnt take the tag off...does this make me a bad person?

I am now 18!! Woohoo, right?
I can now....buy porn, lottery tickets, VOTE and...watched 18+ movies?
School is a bit overwhelming lately but I'll get through it, also the weather is really up and down - I really wish it would make up it's mind.
I've signed up as an AU PAIR and I'm trying to get a job for the summer. I will miss my boyfriend terribly though...that's the biggest 'con'.
Syncro competition is soon...May 23rd
as well as PROM
which is in LESS than a month!
I have a dress - which I should take pictures of/in - but I need SHOES!!!!! I saw this perfect pair at Value Village, but they didn't fit!
I really like Value Village and I've been going there quite often now. I'm good at finding clothes - I've found lots of labels, including Dolce and Gabanna!
The dress I'm wearing here is from Kensington Market, whom I LOVE.
FLAVIA'S CURRENT GOALS:
1. Get through the last days of school.
2. Get through exams.
3. Get driver's license.
4. Get a decent job.
5. Au Pairing.

Yay! I enrolled in Belly Dancing Lessons!
I was on the waiting list so I wasn't sure if I'd make it, but I got an enthusiastic phone call from "Roland" and I'm in!
I took Yoga last year and albeit it amazing, it's a little less exciting. BUT I'm so shy! Hopefully this'll help me with that - as well as tighten my waist :P
Syncro starts Monday! So I wonder what I'll look like with both going on...
Let's see what happens... (:

I'm unsure whether or not to choose Satre or de Beauvoir.
They are both related: in more ways than one.
Simone de Beauvoir seems interesting because of her ideas in feminism, but Satre is also well known and some of his quotes/theories left an impression on me...
Philosophy is cool - but sometimes I am left feeling 'dumb' because I cannot properly grasp the concepts that some of the philosophers are trying to explain.
For Universtity: I think I might go into General Arts then onto Linguistics...I'm still unsure...
Today I am wearing a new top I bought the other day from Old Navy, it's sooo comfortable and it's got little pockets too! :P
School ends in 60seconds. I'm meeting my bf and we're going to see my friend's kitten! :D

Last Sunday I went to this church called The Meeting House and it was pretty amazing, it is a church for people who do not like church and it is inside a movie theatre :O I'm so glad I went and that my friend introduced me to it and I'm hoping to go tommorow. I kind of really needed somewhere to go, and I'm not into church really, although raised catholic etc. maybe I just needed some sound advice of sorts, ramble ramble ramble.
Last night my bf and I had pizza with grilled chicken, mushrooms and green peppers and it was uber-delicious. I was cleaning my room today and found all these journals and things that I had completly forgotten about, I really need to be more organized...I've got quite alot of homework to do, mostly on Hamlet and Ophelia, but also my french presentation which is on Monday - ugggghhhh - but I like Camille Saint-Saëns, I just hope my throat is alright.

I'm not the biggest fan of snow, but it was so fluffy and beautiful. I wish I could go snowboarding or something, maybe I should attempt toboganning sometime soon (:
Friday, 1 February 2008
I was told the sky fell today, I wonder what will happen now.
Here's a video!
There's a big snow storm today...and something wrong with my tonsils again. Apparently tommorow is Saint..Blaze? who is the Saint of throats, and you can go to church to get your throat blessed! Maybe I should give that a try. Today I also learned about the Roman Lupercal rituals about sacrificing goats for Fertility. Interesting.
