It goes without saying...

''Someday poets will write our names out in ink and in tears.''

See you tomorrow. To the stars and back.

and one day, ill be standing there in the alamo park looking down over the city that took our hearts and youll be there we can sit and stare

There's nothing like sleeping under the duvet with the sun's light dancing on the walls. I'm going to miss my room, I get the sad feeling that my future room, albeit it 'a dream' in some respects, will be rather dark. All the more reason to get outside I suppose :) My dreams and ambitions are too big for the apartment really.

The Duvet I really want from Ikea is 80 dollars!!! I hope it goes on sale someday, or maybe I should just save my pennies and splurge... isn't it the most beautiful thing you've ever seen?? Imagine waking up and stretching enveloped in this...

Working on this God-ot awful essay on Waiting for Godot and 'waiting for...' the angels to fall from the sky and give me a push in the (w)rite direction. blah blah blah. I can do this...

Found an apartment! 3 bedrooms and I get a walk-in closet and my own bathroom, sounds pretty spoiled, but believe me, I'm not. It's a 'penthouse' but they're only saying that to make whoever lives on the top floor feel better, honestly. I won't be moving till December, but once I'm in there, I want to dedicate myself to making the space 'mine' as quickly as I can once I'm done exams. Then I'll see if I can properly study for my bartending exam. Going to try and au pair in Paris in the spring (am I dreaming too big?) and go see my uncle Sebastian in Sicily in the summer. I love him so much and I just can't accept the fact that someday he won't be around anymore...

Fun time is over kids, let's get back to work...

  • catch up on socio readings, lit book, italian readings
  • find monster under my bed
  • look for camera batts/cable while youre there
  • and keep searching for monsieur passport
  • call/book hotel
  • grocery shopping
  • fresh sheets and towels
  • call manpower and call wiebe

Life is beautiful sometimes, you've just got to ask it. Lots of good has happened lately but let's not jinx it. All I need now is to find the ''perfect'' apartment.

Two true tried and tested tips for success:
  1. Keep the toilet lid down:
    stops your money/expenses from ''going down the drain''.
  2. Sleep in the same ''direction'' as your house mates:
    helps to avoid arguments and disagreements.

The Aquarium in San Francisco was just amazing.

Said the Lion

The only time,
That my heart,
Will ever shatter and fall apart,
Is the day,
That we part -

In death,
Through a life endured -
In a day,
Never cured -
In hopes and cries forevermore
To see your face,
And feel your paw,
Held in place,
Upon my cheek,
When I was weak -

To hear the mighty wonderful roar,
Forever missed,
Forever raw,
Of the one,
I adore

House has been sold. Apartment hunt continues...

Thursday, 12 November 2009

Haze, D.

I pruned the hedge in the front and painted my bathroom today. I make good wife, yes?

It's a shame that when you're about to leave a place, it seems so beautiful and you wonder why you're leaving in the first place...Like when you plan on washing your hair but when the time comes and you look at yourself in the mirror you say ''oh but I like how it looks right now...''.

I suppose it sucks to have people walking through your room and judging your decor and what not, but so far we've already had competing buyers which is a good thing because we might end up getting above our asking price! That would be really great. I don't really care where we end up now, but I want to make the space my own.

I feel like things are falling together lately, getting more done, enjoying life more, it's not as difficult as it seemed days ago. I just need to keep my head straight and find my passport. Those 24 pages are the bane of my existence and seem to have disappeared from right under my fingertips...I shall find you soon Monsieur Passpartout...We must go to Havana!

Had the idea of maybe Au pairing again in the spring once exams are over with, so I've made another account on the website. Except this time it will be in a big town, and this time it will be in France :) My life would be complete, and I can go visiting other places on my days off and go visit Paul in England too hopefully. I believe Uni ends near my birthday too so maybe I could invent some sort of Birthday/Going away shindig.

Honestly, I don't mind leaving again (oh my nomadic soul), I even asked my mom if we could move back to Europe the other day...I wonder where I'll live when I'm older...if I join the foreign service than who knows? Places I'd like to go in the near future:
  • Havana, once the house is sold.
  • Montreal/Quebec
  • Vancouver, though maybe post-Olympic madness would be better...
  • New York
  • Paris
  • Barcelona
  • that'll do for now, don't you agree...

How personal are you supposed to make blogs? Because there are things that I really can't talk about here, you know?

Got to get back to my Italian Essay. Bacioni x

Things White people like that I like.

I just moved (with the help of two amazing friends) a load of boxes and furniture into storage, now I'm off to have a long shower before heading over to the library to do biotech. Had a really good talk with Paul last night, he shook me awake to realize that I've really got to spend more time to 'live' and do what I love, I've been living deadline to deadline and it's really not healthy. Things are going to be good from now on, promise.

Ooga Chaka

superficial zaaannninesss,
I'm really stressed out with University but I just need to concentrate and prioritize, I've partied every night lately, so tonight...I will leave Italian early with a appropriate swine flu related excuse and head home to sort out my life and NOT go to Andy Poolhall to party...Halloween was fun, and I had so much fun with the people I met at work these past two or so months, I'm going to miss work so so much.

You know what comes next...
  • Biotech presentation is number one
  • Literature essay
  • Biotech essay sources
  • Print Socio slides
Paul is coming to visit on the 25th, super excitement!!! Also, I'm moving again, the place 'sounds' great, three bedroom apartment with my own walk in closet and bathroom, but the area isn't so nice. I just hope that I can make the space mine and feel free and have time for all my interests. Need to be more selfish but more productive.

Where in the World...
