The Hunger Games

Yes, I saw it.  No, I'm not ashamed.  Yes, I LOVED it!

Thanks, Keels, for some two on two time!

Love and friendship!

Last assignment, last quiz and last class DONE!  My Tuesday and Thursday nights are now free...  Woo hoo!  At least until May when Slo Pitch starts up!

I can't wait to get this house in tip top shape...  I have many plans in mind to visit with lots of friends, family and all that jazz in the month before my exams.  Then, it's REAL freedom!

Love and health!

Black Thumb Be Gone!

One of the promises I made to myself last year was that I will get better at gardening.  Typically, I have a black thumb...  I usually can't even keep a cactus alive.  However, even with the indoor plants, I've been doing better and they're still kickin'!  My Christmas cactus (thanks, mom!) blooms like, once a month...  It's amazing.

Today I made it outside and got some yard and garden work done.  It looks so good...  I'm so excited for when more things come up.  I have some tulips just about ready to open, but my daffodils and crocuses came up a couple weeks ago.

Love the nature!

Expect the Unexpected!

I should know to expect the unexpected by now...  yet, I'm still so naive in believing that people have the same good intentions I do.  However, as a result of this unnecessary and uncalled for character defamation, I have received so much love and support from those who know me better. You are the great victories of the world.

Here's to new doors opening...
Love and courage!

Essay Styles

Small victory of today is realized that the paper I have due at the end of this week is 2000 words instead of 2500! 

By small victory, I mean LARGE!

Happy weekend!
Love and sunshine!

Life Changes

Life, school and sickness have gotten in the way of me writing on here, so I thought I'd sneak a chance when I have a moment of freedom from hell aka school.

This has been one of the most professionally challenging, academic-ly demanding and physically awful weeks of my life BUT I WILL REMAIN POSITIVE.

I've learned some new things about myself this week:
1) When someone breaks my trust, forgive, but don't ever forget. 
2) I will not ever, for a second, feel bad/blamed for someone else's mistake.
3) I am so much stronger than I ever thought.  But you already knew that.  And that's why we're here, isn't it?

Love and change!

Onward and Upward!

In a recent (late night, over the top) emotional text message conversation, I let slip certain feelings I maybe shouldn't have...  At the time, and even most of today, I wished I could take them back. Now, however, I'm grateful! There will be no confusion in the way I'm going...  and that's forward.  The past is going to stay in the past and I can't change it, I can't worry about it and I have to stop dwelling on it.

This wasn't a small victory; for me, this is monumental in my steps towards healing and moving on.

I'm usually sorry I dump my shit on you.  Today, I'm not.  I will absolutely always love you, but I will absolutely not allow myself to go on living this way.

Love for myself!

Night Off!

I finished class at 6:50 tonight and I had NOTHING TO DO!  I mean, I have about 37 chapters and 12 articles to read and 17 videos to watch, but I got home at seven and I didn't have to leave the house again!  Do you know how long it's been since that's happened?!  I cleaned the kitchen, did some laundry, cleaned my room and organized all the sports I'm going to be playing this summer.  I'm signing up three teams of people for dodgeball, slo-pitch and ultimate frisbee.  PUMPED!  And soon to be broke...  totally worth it!

Love and fitness!

Time Change

Honestly, I'm so tired and so cranky and dodgeball was awful and it's going to be one of those (extremely rare) days that I am too crankified to find anything good in the day.

Love and SLEEP!

Laura and I wanted to go to Veg Out for lunch, but naturally, over the winter it doesn't open until 5...  So, we hit up Zen Gardens instead and it was sooooo delicious.  I miss having one in Waterloo.  Anyway, I have a few small victories today! 
1) Laura and the hilarity that ensues
2) Delicious vegan food
3) My new fake hair (herrrr) that I bought in the ever-sketchy east end of London - REPRESENT (my fam is from there)!
I haven't been shopping since the beginning of time...  I got pink pants.  I don't even LIKE pink...  but I loveeeeeee these pants!

Love and laughter!

Postsecret came to London and when I found this out, I didn't care what day it was, where it was and what I might miss out on because I have been waiting for FOREVER for Frank Warren to make an appearance in Canada.  Absolutely so worth the wait...  The night was so emotional, amazing, inspiring and memorable.  What a lucky girl I am to have been in such a community-based environment.

My heart is so full of love right now for the human race.

Love and strength!

I think it's a huge victory that so many people have watched this video and continue to circulate it.  I know there is some controversy surrounding it, but I prefer to look at the idea behind it; uniting to fight against something WORTH fighting for!  Aren't children worth it?  Isn't knowledge power?  Please watch and share this video.

Love and peace!

Singing Birds!

This happened on the weekend, but it still excites me so...  I looked into the backyard Saturday afternoon and I saw a robin!  In my flurry of excitement, I noticed movement out of the corner of my eye...  I had to double count because I was sure I was wrong, but there SEVENTEEN, count them, SEVENTEEN robins in my backyard!  Yay, spring is coming!  That excites me so much more than probably most of my small victories put together!!

Poor Excuse for an Entry!

I'm so tired and so uncreative right now that I'll put my Small Victory of the day as going to bed before 11pm!

Love and SLEEP!
