The End??

I honestly cannot believe this year is coming to an end. I remember New Years last year perfectly, for reasons I wish were still around this year.
So many crazy things have happened this year that I cannot believe it all fit into 2010.

Traveled to 4 countries, stopped over in 3 others.
Got my heart broken and mended again.
Not dyed my hair the entire year.
Figured out my university degree.
Got to know myself better.
Met so many people.
Got chosen to direct a play.
Had an incredible summer.
Got to live on my own for awhile.
Been to two amazing music festivals.
Got involved more involved in life.
Learnt how important it is to know how to forgive people, despite how hard it is.

Here's to a 2011 that is jam packed to the brim with crazy beautiful experiences and lots of growth. xo

Beautiful gift drawn by Chris

I was never a big fan of Christmas because having divorced parents makes holidays really hard, and you have to make everyone happy but they aren't willing to compromise so much with the other person. Luckily this year, I pulled out as much Christmas cheer or whatever as I could and managed to have a nice Christmas. Spent the night of the 25th with an amazing person and their family, I am so thankful for that. I wonder what Christmas will be like when I'm older and probably married. Will I be a harping perfectionist trying to capture the Christmas that I never had? Will I even be celebrating Christmas? All I know is that despite the commercial aspect of Christmas, there is the food and the family and just being together and thoughtful to each other and it's something people forget about sometimes during the rest of the year.
I hope you had lovely holidays, whatever you celebrated, I hope they were with friends and family and lots of good food.

Of course

I hate not updating you dear blog, I always come up with entries in my head but never sit down to create them, as with so many things in life. But of course, procrastinating for my one exam is just what I need to find any reason to avoid studying. Whoever decided to put an exam on the 21st of December, must be a big scroogy grinch, but then again, so am I.

Despite my dislike of xmas, Life is pretty good lately, I'm surrounded by new and amazing people and it's exactly what I needed now. I feel like I'm actually living that University lifestyle people talk about, search for, crazy but not too crazy, sounds good to me.

Went to visit a friend out of town for a few days and it helped me realize that you need to take things as they come. You honestly can't sit around with a rock in your stomach waiting and wanting and hoping. You have to go out and do it and laugh and enjoy it and then laugh about it again the next day because life doesn't have to be stressful or complicated.

I met someone who is going through similar family issues as I am, and it made me feel less alone in that sense. I can't just bring it up in normal conversation, people feel uncomfortable and don't know what to tell you if you bring up said issues at a party or dinner.  Everyone has some kind of problem going on, whether it is an obvious one or not and there's a time and place to talk about them because people don't know what to do when they realize other people are hurting. I learnt that the hard way. Somehow she was able to just tell me and I just accepted it, I didn't judge or run away or make fun. Now if only other people would be so nice as to do that to me. Find that friend to whom you can share your fears with and hold on to them. People don't always know how to handle things they're not used to feeling.

When I'm avoiding school work, I do some pretty impressive things but right now I just feel like cleaning. I really need to go over my notes and study but I just don't feel like it, it's too dark outside and there's too much noise. My mother is here until next month at least, and she's discovered Skype. It makes me miss living alone, but this morning she made brunch and it was delicious and we talked like two people should, and not too teen angsty jerry springered mother and daughter death metal flying dishes duo. It was good. Let's see how long that lasts...

I should open my textbooks, but first I'll do the dishes.

Not that I Care...

..but this is kind of interesting.
However, if they ever made one of me, I think they'd be somewhat disappointed. Sometimes I feel like the only changes I really go through over time are internal. x

Drowning Art.

Can we all just take a moment to look at this?

"Artist Jason de Caires Taylor creates life-size cement sculptures of people and submerges them into the waters of South America. As time passes the sculptures become part of the underwater landscape and slowly become artificial reefs ripe with marine life."
Honestly, this is incredibly beautiful and it makes me feel like I'm dreaming. Things like this keep my head in the clouds and make me think differently about the human race I suppose. It's something I wish I could be a part of and despite all the snow, I want to dive into the nearest installation and swim around...Art like this makes you feel something...


It makes me think of a combination between Pompeii and Atlantis...

Last night, I went to visit BG at his art college then we headed out to Hooters with a bunch of people for All You Can Eat Wings!
They competed against each other and he won by one more, with 43 Chicken Wings consumed. What a champ...

I don't know how many I ate last night, but definitely more than 25 wings. I have to say though, despite Hooters supposedly being famous for their AYCEWings, their flavours were a little sub-par.
My favourites were the Honey Garlic wings, in second comes the BBQ flavour, which I found a little too 'ketchup-y'. I was excited to try the Cajun ones but they just tasted like oversalted Oregano Shake and Bake. However, the Lemon Pepper ones were delicious, but when we ordered them the second time, they were so incredibly sour that we couldn't eat them. Alex's face in the photo below expresses the sourness...
I only just got into Chicken Wings a week earlier with some people from the play I had worked on. I used to be grossed out by touching the bones, but now I can't get enough! My next food fear challenge will probably be some kind of seafood...

I never thought I'd someday be reviewing Hooters Chicken Wings on my blog...

End of Movember.

 Happy Movember!

Where in the World...
