2009 wrap up

Positives of 09:

  • First real job!

  • Made a ton of new friends who are really awesome at said job.

  • Learning how to do a bit of everything from being a janitor to setting and clearing tables

  • Taking a bunch of courses that I totally loved!

  • Everything that is Eddie!

  • Finally having a life plan!

  • Depression is getting so much better!

  • Losing ten pounds and still losing!

  • Getting so much closer to Anna and the hippies! I love you guys!

  • The i Factor!

  • Chiropractor finally had a baby!

  • When you take courses you like... you get marks that you like even more

  • Getting that damn geography mark appealed and winning!

  • Observing that there are more positives on this list than there have been in the last two years

  • Being in Mexico for new years and being in Florida in June for the first attempt at the launch

  • I finally quit with the self medicating crap.

  • I finally realized that I am, in fact, a pretty awesome person.

Negtatives of 09

  • Lots of stomach crap that nobody could figure out

  • Fractured ankle

  • Grandpa started drinking again

  • So many deaths

  • The CNIB and everything they stand for... including that plot on my life a few weeks back. Too bad for you you guys failed, and I'm still alive suckiers! Take that six dollar bottle of whine and chug it!

Is that really all the negatives I can think of? That's a damn good sign I must say!

Hopes for 2010:

  • I finally get off accademic probation

  • I lose some more weight now that I'm on a great training schedule.
  • I become part of the Blind Guys Tri team and do that tri in the summer!
  • No more hospital visits for surgery or broken/fractured/sprained things.

  • I get to play more music with my hippies.

  • I get my own place... God I need my own place...

  • I can keep this job that I'm currently working at. It makes me good money. Me likey.

And with that, I'm off to have the third round of turkey... turkey turkey turkey. Gobble gobble. I'm an odd ducki... maybe a dislexic one... Anyway, hope everyone has a great new year, and hopefully everything you want will happen for you!


Live Alive!

My God! As if I haven't updated this crazy damn old thing since April! Well hi! Apparently, I only have one follower according to this thing, but that's all good. I can't believe another year is coming to an end. Why is it that when we get older time just moves so much faster? My third semester at Queen's was absolutely amazing! I finally took courses that I loved, and I finally have a life plan... I can't believe it!

I worked at a camp in the summer, but anyone who reads this knows all that crap, so I won't bore you with it... however, I have decided I am going to audition for the music program at Queen's, then once I've graduated I plan to try and get into the masters program in music therapy at Laurier in Kitchener. Hopefully, I will be a music therapist when I grow up. I'm pretty excited about the possibilities.

I have a new boyfriend. I had my first ever date in October, and we've been together ever since. Funny part of that whole thing is that I have actually known this guy since I was little. My old E A is his aunt. I feel like I'm always smiling. He treats me like a Queen. Amazing!

I'm not on anymore meds except one that's supposed to help sleep, migraines and stomach issues, both of which I seem to suffer greatly from, although the migraines are a lot easier. Now we just have crazy stomach crap that nobody knows what it is... But I'm just happy.

Christmas was excellent. I got a ton of new pots and pans for my new place... whenever I finally find one. I can't wait to be on my own again. I'm 23 and still living with Dad... going a wee touch crazy, but that's alright. Life is great!

This post is getting boring and rambly, so I'm going to cut it off here. Hey Carin, bet you'll be surprised to find this thing has finally been updated. Hopefully everyone who reads this is having an awesome holiday!
